THE ROLLING STONES - Hot Rocks 1 & 2 (1985)

This two-CD set is both a lot more and a bit less than what it seems. It is seven years' worth of mostly very high-charting and all influential and important songs, leaving out some singles in favor of well-known album tracks, and in the process, giving an overview not just of the Rolling Stones' hits but of their evolving image. One hears them change from loud R&B-inspired rockers covering others' songs ("Time Is on My Side") into originators in their own right ("Satisfaction"); then into tastemakers and style-setters with a particularly decadent air ("Get Off of My Cloud," "19th Nervous Breakdown"), and finally into self-actualized rebel-poets ("Jumpin' Jack Flash," "Midnight Rambler") and Shaman-like symbols of chaos. On its initial release, Hot Rocks sold well, not only as a unique compilation but also as a panorama of the '60s. The only flaw was that it didn't give a good look at the Stones' full musical history, ignoring their early blues and psychedelic eras. There are also some anomalies in Hot Rocks' history for the collector - the very first pressings included an outtake of "Brown Sugar" featuring Eric Clapton that was promptly replaced. This is an exciting assembly of material.




Hot Rocks 1: 01. Time Is On My Side 02. Heart Of Stone 03. Play With Fire 04. (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction 05. As Tears Go By 06. Get Off My Cloud 07. Mother's Little Helper 08. 19th Nervous Breakdown 09. Paint It Black 10. Under My Thumb 11. Ruby Tuesday 12. Let's Spend The Night Together

Hot Rocks 2: 01. Jumpin' Jack Flash 02. Street Fighting Man 03. Sympathy For The Devil 04. Honky Tonk Women 05. Gimme Shelter 06. Midnight Rambler 07. You Can't Always Get What You Want 08. Brown Sugar 09. Wild Horses

INGLORIOUS - Inglorious (2016) & II (2017) thumbup

Inglorious is an English-based Hard Rock band. Formed in February 2014 in London, the band is fronted by Nathan James, who sang for a time with Trans-Siberian Orchestra and Scorpions guitarist Uli Jon Roth. The band began formation in February 2014, when vocalist Nathan James, who made a name for himself having appeared on reality TV shows and singing for the multi-platinum selling Trans-Siberian Orchestra, and Scorpions guitar legend Uli Jon Roth, was looking for like-minded musicians that desired to make rock music in a very honest fashion. He joined up with rhythm guitarist Wil Taylor, lead guitarist Drew Lowe, bassist Colin Parkinson, and drummer Phil Beaver. After gaining attention on YouTube with their live version of Deep Purple's classic 'Burn', Drew Lowe left the band and was replaced with Birmingham guitarist Jack Edwards. Jack was then quickly released and replaced by Swedish guitarist Andreas Eriksson.




Andreas joined the band a few weeks before the recording of their self-titled debut, Inglorious, which was released in 2016. The band with help of radio station Planet Rock gathered a large social media following and toured Europe with The Winery Dogs, The Dead Daisies and as support act for American comedy hard rock band Steel Panther. After the tour, on the 17th of December 2016, Wil Taylor announced via instagram that he had left the band on December the 13th after writing and recording the second album with Inglorious. In an interesting turn of events, Drew Lowe, the band's original guitarist, rejoined the group as Taylor's replacement.

STATUS QUO - The Last Night Of The Electrics (2017)

Anyone here seeing us for the first time?” asked Francis Rossi. When a small cheer was raised in response, the leader and last surviving original member of Status Quo admonished his new fans. “Don’t be so pleased with yourselves. We’ve been around a long time.” That they have. Status Quo are a British rock and roll institution. They have been plying their very particular brand of heads-down, no-nonsense, twin-guitar 12-bar boogie for nearly 50 years. “Maybe you should have made an effort to see us when we were younger,” Rossi mockingly continued. “We might have been better.” Actually, they would probably have been almost exactly the same. For nearly two hours, the five piece delivered hits and fan favourites with Rossi’s clear, direct vocals and sharp, repetitive yet effective lead solos riding taut and high over tinkling piano, heavy drums, driving bass and chunky rhythm guitar.

December 11th, 2016 at London's O2 Arena, 'last ever' electric live tour from Francis Rossi, Andrew Bown, John ‘Rhino’ Edwards & Leon Cave

ALLEN COLLINS BAND - Here, There & Back (1983)

The Allen Collins Band was a spinoff of Southern rock bands Lynyrd Skynyrd and The Rossington-Collins Band. It existed from 1983 to 1984 and was formed shortly after the dissolution of the Rossington-Collins Band. Most of the members carried over from the Rossington-Collins Band, with the exceptions of Dale Krantz and Gary Rossington, who quit after a row with Collins. Vocalist Jimmy Dougherty was brought in as front man.

The band's name was originally Horsepower, but just prior to the release of its debut album it discovered another band was already using that name. The Allen Collins Band released Here, There and Back on MCA in 1983, its only album. The sudden death of Collins' wife, Kathy, took its toll on Collins. Emotionally drained, his behavior became more and more erratic, and the band began to disintegrate.

TRACKS:
01. Just Trouble 02. One Known Soldier 03. Hangin' Judge 04. Time After Time 05. This Ride's On Me 06. Ready To Move 07. Chapter One 08. Commitments 09. Everything You Need

FRUMPY

The four musicians who formed Frumpy were all members of Irishman O' Brian-Docker's folkband The City Preachers, which he founded in Hamburg in 1965. The City Preachers played an excellent blend of American and British folk music and had, sometimes, over a dozen people on stage. Discontent with singer Dagmar Krause, drummer Carsten Bohn left the City Preachers in November 1969 and took singer Inga Rumpf, French keyboarder Jean-Jacques Kravetz and guitarist Karl-Heinz Schott with him to form Frumpy. In spring of 1970, Frumpy started a successful tour of France. The same year, they went on a 50 concert tour with Spooky Tooth, and played with Yes, Humble Pie and Renaissance. In autumn of 1970, Frumpy released the first album "All Will Be Changed" which contained only own material with the exception of a Richie Havens cover. The Following year guitarist Rainer Baumann joined Frumpy and played on the bands second LP "Frumpy 2", which was rapped in a round plastic bag. In Germany, the album was well received and proved that rock music from Germany could live up to international standard.




Their music combines jazz, soul and eastern elements with the keyboards as the most important instrument. Frumpy topped the Musik Express poll as the most popular German rock group of the year and the newspaper FAZ assisted singer Inga Rumpf to be "the country's biggest individual talent", but a tour of England with Mott The Hoople failed to attract popularity in Britain. Musical differences with keyboarder Kravetz caused him to leave Frumpy, in spring 1972, to record a solo Lp with Inga Rumpf singing one song. But he returned for the recording sessions of FRUMPY's third LP "By The Way". But Frumpy disbanded after a farewell concert on June 26, 1972. Inga Rumpf, Jean-Jacques Kravetz and Karl-Heinz Schott formed Atlantis.

JERRY LEE LEWIS - Country Class (1976) & Country Memories (1977) [2016]

Beat Goes On of the UK continue their extensive reissue campaign of the Killer’s Country albums for Mercury Records in the sixties and Seventies - this time whomping us with "Country Class" from 1976 and "Country Memories" from 1977 onto 1CD. After a steady diet of musical mediocrity, personal scandal and the occasional nasal operation - "Country Class" and "Country Memories" at least seemed to provide long-suffering fans with some 'very brief' moments worth cheering. But the problem with both albums is that they contained much that was risible too - and time hasn't been kind to either. Here are the 'one rose you left in my heart' details... There’s the usual card slipcase and a 12-page booklet with excellent ANDREW McRAE liner notes that tell it like it is about the musical content. ANDREW THOMPSON has done the new 2016 Remasters and they sound amazing. I wish the music warranted it...

"Country Class" opens with some genuinely awful schlock - "Let's Put It Back Together Again" - cheesy strings and even cheesier arrangements make it the kind of Country crud even Country fans hate. Things improve with "No One Will Ever Know" and his respectful cover of Jo Stafford's 1952 hit "You Belong To Me" isn't bad. But songs like "I Sure Miss Those Good Old Times" and "The Old Country Church" (associated with Hank Williams) feels tired - like Presley reaching for something safe rather than the fire of old. There's a brief moment of respite with "Jerry Lee's Rock & Roll Revival Show" where those brass and piano rolls sound more John Fogerty than Hank Snow - and in a good way. "Country Memories" only offers up more of the same – songs like "Let's Say Goodbye Like We Said Hello (In A Friendly Kind Of Way)" has a half decent melody and lyric but its drowned in syrupy backing vocalists and the ever present Pedal Steel. His boogied-up "Who's Sorry Now" is o.k. but far better is "(You'd Think By Now) I'd Be Over You" - a genuinely pretty melody that Jerry Lee sings well.

CAROLYN WONDERLAND - Moon Goes Missing (2017)

Blues-rocker Carolyn Wonderland is a singer/songwriter/pianist/ trumpeter/guitarist from Texas. She began performing solo as a teen and then later with her band the Imperial Monkeys. While firmly entrenched in blues-rock, Wonderland and her group sport a diverse range of other influences, from country to zydeco to surf to Latin to boogie, and even jazz. The group has performed and toured with such similarly minded predecessors as B.B. King, Johnny Winter, Buddy Guy, the Allman Brothers, Delbert McClinton, and Buddy Miles. Before relocating from her hometown of Houston to Austin, TX, Wonderland picked up a slew of awards in the Houston press, including best female vocalist seven out of eight years running. Wonderland, whose powerful voice garners frequent comparisons to Janis Joplin, was first inspired to get on the stage after seeing local outfit Little Screamin' Kenny & the Sideliners at the Houston club Fitzgerald's. Wonderland released her debut, Play With Matches, on the independent Big Mo label in 1995. In subsequent years, she continued to release albums and tour the U.S., leading the Imperial Monkeys through several incarnations.

In Carolyn Wonderland's 5th studio album Moon Goes Missing, the qualities that have cemented her notoriety in the Texas blues and rock scene are on full display. Wonderland exhibits originality and raw emotional power emitted through her vocals, alongside her tasteful soul-fused guitar work.

RY COODER - Chicken Skin Music (1976)

Ry Cooder has always believed in the "mutuality in music," and this may be no more evident in his career than with his fifth album, Chicken Skin Music (a Hawaiian colloquialism, synonymous with goosebumps). Even more than usual, Cooder refuses to recognize borders - geographical or musical - presenting "Stand By Me" as a gospel song with a norteńo arrangement, or giving the Jim Reeves country-pop classic, "He'll Have to Go," a bolero rhythm, featuring the interplay of Flaco Jimenez's accordion and Pat Rizzo's alto sax. Elsewhere, he teams with a pair of Hawaiian greats - steel guitarist and singer Gabby Pahinui and slack key guitar master Atta Isaacs - on the Hank Snow hit "Yellow Roses" and the beautiful instrumental "Chloe." If Cooder's approach to the music is stylistically diverse, his choice of material certainly follows suit. Bookended by a couple of Leadbelly compositions, Chicken Skin Music sports a collection of songs ranging from the aforementioned tracks to the charming old minstrel/medicine show number "I Got Mine" and the syncopated R&B of "Smack Dab in the Middle." Also included is Appalachian songwriter Blind Alfred Reed's "Always Lift Him Up," complete with a Hawaiian gospel tune, "Kanaka Wai Wai," woven into the instrumental section. As he explains in the album's liner notes, Cooder understands the connection between these seemingly disparate styles. This is not merely eclecticism for its own sake. Chicken Skin Music is probably Ry Cooder's most eccentric record since his first, but it's also one of his most entertaining.

TRACKS:
01. The Bourgeois Blues 02. I Got Mine 03. Always Lift Him Up/Kanaka Wai Wai 04. He'll Have to Go 05. Smack Dab in the Middle 06. Stand By Me 07. Yellow Roses 08. Chloe 09. Goodnight Irene

IT'S A BEAUTIFUL DAY - Live at The Fillmore '68 (2013)

A San Francisco psychedelic folk-rock band built around the violinist David LaFlamme and the soaring vocals of singer Pattie Santos, It's a Beautiful Day hit their creative and commercial peak with 1969's "White Bird," an FM radio staple, and then pretty much played out its string, succumbing to the myriad pressures of the music industry, but for a year or two there, It's a Beautiful Day was one of San Francisco's best bands. This set features the band in its prime playing live a little less than a year before the release of their first album. Early recording of this iconic band from San Francisco along with a DVD history of the band with live performances 1968 was certainly a banner year for It's A Beautiful Day. They had been performing at the Avalon Ballroom and The Fillmore Auditorium and had achieved a certain amount of success on a local level but nothing really happened until they were invited to play an opening set at the Oakland Coliseum for Cream.

GEORGIE FAME - 20 Beat Classics (1980)

Georgie Fame (born Clive Powell, 26 June 1943) is an English rhythm and blues and jazz singer, and keyboard player. The one-time rock and roll tour musician, who had a string of 1960s hits, is still a popular performer, often working with contemporaries such as Van Morrison and Bill Wyman.
Fame is the only British pop star to have achieved three number one hits with his only Top 10 chart entries: "Yeh Yeh" in 1964, "Getaway" in 1966 and "The Ballad of Bonnie and Clyde" in 1967.

This is the kind of compilation that can easily transport any guy of my age group to his pre-teen years; but unlike many other nostalgic initiatives that have flooded the market intentionally targeting the teenagers of yore who now have comfortable financial situations and which are instantly rejected by our more sophisticated listening filters as a bunch of crappy, syrupy stuff, this one has aged very well and is as appealing today as it was back then. The included program, released between 1964 and 1966, half of it recorded with the Blue Flames, is mostly spirited, lively music served by Fame’s impassioned singing -which carries many Blues and Motown genes but also Jazz singers’ as far back as Armstrong New Orleans inflections-, inspired horns arrangements that occasionally sound like spontaneous conversations (as on “Getaway” which happens to be the only Fame’s original), many scorching sax solos and the occasional flute or guitar one.

THE LEAVES - Hey Joe (1966)

The Leaves were an American garage rock band formed in San Fernando Valley, California in 1964. They are best known for their version of the song "Hey Joe", which was a hit in 1966. Theirs is the earliest release of this song, which became a rock standard. The band was founded by bass player Jim Pons and guitarist Robert Lee Reiner, who were inspired by hearing The Beatles while students at Cal State Northridge in Los Angeles. Originally called The Rockwells, they were fraternity brothers who formed a group and then taught themselves how to play. Besides Pons and Reiner, the original line-up included John Beck (vocals), Bill Rinehart (lead guitar), and Jimmy Kern (drums); in early 1965, Kern was replaced by drummer Tom Ray.

They began by playing surf and dance music at parties. Their first actual show was in the school gym with Captain Beefheart and His Magic Band. In 1965 The Byrds left their residency at Ciro's on Sunset Strip after making their first hit, and The Leaves (as they were by now known) were chosen to replace them. It was there they were discovered by popular singer and actor Pat Boone, who got them their first record contract, with Mira Records.Their first single, "Too Many People", was a local hit in Los Angeles. The Leaves released "Hey Joe" in November 1965, and dissatisfied with the sound, pulled it. They released a second version in early 1966, which flopped. Original guitarist Bill Rinehart left, and The Leaves redid the song again with a fuzztone by new guitarist Bob Arlin. This version of the song became a hit, hitting No. 1 in L.A. It debuted on both Billboard and Cash Box on May 21, 1966. It peaked at No. 31 on Billboard and No. 29 on the Canadian RPM Magazine charts, while showing a humbler peak position of No. 43 on Cash Box. The song ran nine weeks on both national charts. Their debut album Hey Joe followed. It took a run on the Billboard charts for 5 weeks, beginning on July 30, 1966, peaking at No. 127. The album did not make it onto the Cash Box charts.

V.A. - Black Snake Moan (2007) OST

Black Snake Moan, the 2007 movie that stars Samuel L. Jackson as a God-fearing, bent broken soul and tortured former bluesman, with Christina Ricci playing the town tramp he feels he has to redeem by any means necessary, is a wildly provocative look at spiritual and cultural mores - and is sure to set some folks on edge. The soundtrack that accompanies it on the other hand, is a pure shimmy-shaking blues extravaganza. The film is dedicated to the memory of R.L. Burnside. His digital ghost performs 'Old Black Mattie' here, and his tune 'Just Like a Bird Without a Feather,' is covered by Jackson with Burnside's adopted son and sideman Kenny Brown. There are also cuts here by the Black Keys, Jessie Mae Hemphill, Scott Bomar the soundtrack's producer, John Doe, Outrageous Cherry (covering Junior Kimbrough no less), Bobby Rush, Precious Bryant and the North Mississippi Allstars. Sure, musically this is a mixed - but mostly satisfactory - bag. Jackson can't sing worth a damn, but he's got the feel of the blues to be sure; it's in the grain, it's not a posture. He can tell a hell of a story too; check his spoken word intro to the title track with Jason Freeman on a killer serpentine guitar. Doe does a very spooky reading of his 'The Losing Kind' here, and the Allstars kick it on the end credits like a mother. The Kimbrough cover is adequate but it doesn't fit here at all, and begs the question why the producers didn't just use Kimbrough's own music. Bomar's instrumental theses are quite beautiful; they're as deeply influenced by Ennio Morricone as they are by Ry Cooder. 'Alice Mae' and 'Stackolee,' with Jackson singing in front of a real Mississippi juke-joint crowd, are pretty great. This is Burnside's backing band with Brown, and Cedric Burnside with Luther Dickinson. Jackson doesn't need to actually sing, he's got plenty of vibe and the band kicks ass. His history is off, though, dating the latter track to 1962, when it is as old as the blues itself, but who cares? It rocks. For the most part, these are the modern-day Delta blues rather than Robert Johnson's, though there are a couple of mean voice-overs by Son House here, and that is as it should be. The soundtrack to Black Snake Moan stands on its own as a fiery good time.

13TH FLOOR ELEVATORS - Reverberations (2004)

The 13th Floor Elevators were one of the pioneering bands of psychedelic music; many have cited them as the first true psychedelic rock band, and if they weren't, they certainly predated most of the San Francisco bands that gave the sound a global audience. The Elevators played a bracing fusion of garage rock and genre-defying musical exploration powered by Roky Erickson's feral vocals and rhythm guitar, Stacy Sutherland's concise but agile lead guitar work, and Tommy Hall's amplified jug playing, the latter of which gave them a sound unlike any other in rock. The Elevators were also exploring the outer limits of both consciousness and rock & roll in Texas in the early to mid-'60s, a time and place that wasn't quite ready for them, leading to the myriad problems that at once fueled their legend and cut down the band before their time.

WILLIAM SHATNER

William Shatner is a Canadian actor, author, producer, and director. In his seven decades of television, Shatner became a cultural icon for his portrayal of James T. Kirk, Captain of the USS Enterprise, in the Star Trek franchise. He has written a series of books chronicling his experiences playing Captain Kirk and being a part of Star Trek, and has co-written several novels set in the Star Trek universe. He has written a series of science fiction novels called TekWar, which were adapted for television. Shatner also played the eponymous veteran police sergeant in T. J. Hooker (1982–86) and hosted the reality-based television series, Rescue 911 (1989–96), which won a People's Choice Award for the Favorite New TV Dramatic Series. Shatner also appeared in the NBC series, 3rd Rock from the Sun in seasons 4 and 5 as the role of the "Big Giant Head" whom the alien characters of the Series reported to. From 2004 until 2008, he starred as attorney Denny Crane in the final season of the legal drama The Practice and its spinoff series Boston Legal, a role that earned him two Emmy Awards. Shatner has also worked as a musician, an author, a director, and a celebrity pitchman. Shatner began his musical career with the spoken-word 1968 album The Transformed Man[63], delivering exaggerated, interpretive recitations of "Mr. Tambourine Man" and "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds." He performed a reading of the Elton John song "Rocket Man" during the 1978 Science Fiction Film Awards that has been widely parodied. Ben Folds, who has worked with him several times, produced and co-wrote Shatner's well-received second studio album, Has Been, in 2004. His third studio album, Seeking Major Tom, was released on October 11, 2011. The fourth, Ponder the Mystery, was released in October 2013 on Cleopatra Records, produced and composed by musician Billy Sherwood (member of Yes). Shatner also has done a concert tour with CIRCA:, which includes an ex and current member of Yes, Tony Kaye and Billy Sherwood.




Has Been (2004) was produced and arranged by Ben Folds and most of the songs are co-written by Folds and Shatner, with Folds creating arrangements for Shatner's prose-poems, and features guest appearances from Joe Jackson (on a cover of Pulp's "Common People"), Folds and Aimee Mann (backup vocals on "That's Me Trying"), Lemon Jelly (on "Together"), Henry Rollins, and Adrian Belew (on "I Can't Get Behind That"), and Brad Paisley (on "Real", which he wrote specifically for Shatner). Henry Rollins also talks about his experience while recording the song "I Can't Get Behind That" with Shatner on his spoken-word album Talk Is Cheap Vol IV and in his live spoken-word video, Shock and Awe.

Exodus: An Oratorio in Three Parts is a dramatic biblical reading in which he is accompanied by the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra. David Itkin, the album's producer and each track's composer, was also the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra's music director and conductor at the time of the album's recording, in 2005. In an interview, Shatner recalled that Itkin invited him to perform as the piece's narrator.




Seeking Major Tom was released October 11, 2011 in the US by Cleopatra Records. The album features many noted musicians, including Sheryl Crow, John Wetton, Patrick Moraz, Ritchie Blackmore, Alan Parsons, Peter Frampton, Warren Haynes, Nick Valensi, Zakk Wylde, Mike Inez, Chris Adler, Steve Hillage, Steve Howe, Michael Schenker, Dave Davies, Johnny Winter, Brad Paisley, Bootsy Collins, Carmine Appice, Ian Paice, and Toots.

Ponder the Mystery was released October 8, 2013, in the US by Cleopatra Records. The album was produced by Billy Sherwood, who also composed the music and performs vocals, drums, bass, guitars and keys, while many noted musicians also guest, including Tony Kaye.




WILLIAM SHATNER - Spaced Out - The Very Best of Leonard Nimoy and William Shatner (1997)

One of the true ultimates in so-bad-it's-sublime listening. This collection culls the most interesting results of the famously bad recording careers of Star Trek's Kirk and Spock, both of whom recorded albums in the late 1960s. William Shatner's seven cuts all stem from his notorious album The Transformed Man, which the liner notes here aptly describe as "a bewildering collision of Dylan, Shakespeare, and the Beatles, narrated over a strangely disconnected free-for-all." Leonard Nimoy, meanwhile, gets considerably more attention, owing to his having recorded five (!) albums of "musical" material -- mostly covers of folk-rock contemporary tunes. He turns in no genuinely good material, but his unsteady attempts at carrying a tune are worth more than a few laughs, whether in his strles to keep the meter in "Put a Little Love in Your Heart" or his attempts to channel the "spirit" of Spock in "Highly Illogical" and "Spock Thoughts" (the latter of which is actually "Desiderata"). Although a high rating seems inappropriate for a collection such as this, Spaced Out is actually a must-have for ironists who wish to impress their friends with pop culture detritus.

THE ANGELS (1977 - 1980)

The Angels are an Australian rock band which formed in Adelaide in 1974 as The Keystone Angels by John Brewster on rhythm guitar and vocals, his brother Rick Brewster on lead guitar and vocals, and Bernard "Doc" Neeson on lead vocals and guitar. They were later joined by Graham "Buzz" Bidstrup on drums and vocals, and Chris Bailey on bass guitar and vocals. In 1981 Bidstrup was replaced on drums by Brent Eccles. Their studio albums on the Kent Music Report Albums Chart top 10 are No Exit (July 1979), Dark Room (June 1980), Night Attack (November 1981), Two Minute Warning (November 1984), Howling (October 1986) and Beyond Salvation (February 1990). Their top 20 singles are "No Secrets" (1980), "Into the Heat" (1981), "We Gotta Get out of This Place" (1987), "Am I Ever Gonna See Your Face Again" (live, 1988), "Let the Night Roll On" and "Dogs Are Talking" (both 1990).

The Angels is the first album by Australian hard rock band, The Angels, which was released in August 1977. It was produced by Vanda & Young (The Easybeats) at Sydney's Albert Studios. It included a re-recorded version of their debut single, "Am I Ever Gonna See Your Face Again" (March 1976) and provided their second single, "You're a Lady Now", in July 1977. By the mid-1980s "Am I Ever Gonna See Your Face Again" had developed a cult status with the audience responding with "No way, get fucked, fuck off!"




Within a year of the release of their tentative debut, the Angels had come up with an absolute monster of an album. Face to Face was a watershed release in the annals of Australian hard rock, an era-defining work that stayed on the Australian charts for 79 weeks and still holds up to this day. The song writing is some of the best of the band's career; indeed many of these tracks remained live favourites. Certainly the buzzing riffs are among the catchiest that the Brewster brothers guitar team ever came up with. Also, singer Doc Neeson injected a strong theatrical edge into proceedings and there's a real swing to the bottom end (courtesy of drummer Buzz Bidstrup and bassist Chris Bailey) which, like AC/DC and Rose Tattoo, makes the music roll as much as rock.

No Exit takes the template set by Face to Face and rides it for all its worth. Once again the song writing is of a consistently high standard, the riffs are memorable and the guitars lay on the crunch factor from go to whoa. This is particularly evident on the crushing opening track "Waiting for the World", the wicked "Save Me" (which boasts a great pop chorus among the ripping guitars), the epic "No Exit", the vicious "Mr Damage" ("With a voice like a scraping violin"), the creepy, Alice Cooper-like "Dawn is Breaking", the perverse "Ivory Stairs" ("They got you dancing to a gallows tune") plus the singles "Shadow Boxer" (no Angels' gig was complete without this fist-pumping anthem) and "Out of the Blue" which is actually the quiet one of the litter but it retains much of the sneering menace of the faster cuts. This is an album with deep-seated roots in a collective psyche hell-bent on exploring the dark side. Song for song it's one of the great Oz Rock albums of the 1970s, right up there with Face to Face, Rose Tattoo's self-titled debut, Coloured Balls' Ball Power, AC/DC's Let There Be Rock and a handful of others.




Dark Room is the fourth album by Australian band The Angels, released in 1980. In June 2002, Shock Records issued The Complete Sessions 1980 - 1983. The four-disc box set included remasters of Dark Room (9 bonus tracks), Night Attack (9 bonus tracks), Watch The Red (5 bonus tracks) and The Blow (2-CD set). In June 2006, Liberation Music re-issued Dark Room from The Complete Sessions 1980 - 1983. The album peaked at number 5 on the ARIA Charts and it also peaked at number 37 on Recorded Music NZ.

CLIMAX BLUES BAND - FM Live (1972) [2006]

Heavy on the kind of blues-rock favored by Humble Pie, this is a live outing in front of a too-loud New York audience. Sax player Colin Cooper helps to separate these English midland lads from the heads-down no-nonsense boogie competition, although the emphasis is squarely on guitarist Peter Haycock. His solo electric slide showcase "Country Hat" is a marvel. The band's pop leanings featured so strongly on their studio recordings come through in "I Am Constant." It's a solid outing, and much meatier than subsequent offerings. A truly superior double LP set from one of England's more interesting exponents of blues. Combining straight blues-rock with some belligerent jazz bastardizations, this exciting foursome gets a lot of mileage out of their musical idiom. With anchoring bass and cannon volley drum rhythms laying a firm foundation, Climax lets loose some frenzied reed work and the hottest, nastiest guitar work this side of early Clapton and Page.

TRACKS:
01. All the Time in the World 02. I Am Constant 03. Flight 04. Seventh Son 05. Standing By a River 06. So Many Roads 07. Mesopopmania 08. Country Hat 09. You Make Me Sick 10. Shake Your Love 11. Goin' to New York 12. Let's Work Together

FEVER TREE - Fever Tree (1968) & Creation (1969) & For Sale (1970) & Another Time, Another Place (1968) [2015]

Fever Tree is a former American psychedelic rock band of the 1960s, chiefly known for their anthemic 1968 hit, "San Francisco Girls (Return of the Native)". The group originated in Houston, Texas and began in 1966 as a folk rock group called The Bostwick Vines. They changed their name to Fever Tree a year later after the addition of keyboard player Rob Landes. The band briefly entered the public consciousness when their song "San Francisco Girls (Return of the Native)" reached No. 91 in the U.S. on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in June 1968. Like most of the band's material, it was written by the couple of Scott and Vivian Holtzman, who also were their producers. This four-minute track captured all the band's trademarks: Dennis Keller's incantation-like vocals, the quick shifting between slow parts with an almost sacral feeling and faster, more rock-oriented parts, and especially the searing guitar work by Michael Knust.




Fever Tree also released their self-titled debut album, Fever Tree, in 1968, which charted at No. 156 on the Billboard 200 Chart. A second album, Another Time, Another Place, followed in 1969 and peaked at No. 83 with a third album Creation, charting at No. 97 on the Billboard 200 Chart in 1970. Apart from "San Francisco Girls", they never had another hit, although they later also tried writing songs themselves when they had dropped the Holtzmans as producers. The group disbanded in 1970, but reformed in 1978 with only guitarist Michael Knust remaining from the original line-up. The new formation of the group had little commercial success; Fever Tree was not heard of again until 2003 when Michael Knust died. Fever Tree's first two albums (Fever Tree and Another Time, Another Place) were re-released as a single CD on October 31, 2006. Fever Tree's third and fourth albums (Creation and For Sale) are also available as a single CD.

MEAT LOAF - Stoney & Meatloaf (1971)

It is well known that Meat Loaf had a huge international hit record in 1978 teaming up with songwriter Jim Steinman to produce the famous "Bat Out Of Hell" album. However it is less well known that he had previously, in the early seventies, recorded a number of songs for a subsidiary of the Motown label in Detroit together with a singer and actress going by the name of Stoney. An album of primarily duet recordings was released and the first of two singles from the album, "What You See Is What You Get", marked Meat Loaf's debut on the US Billboard Charts. His singing partner would herself go on to have a successful career in the music business being better known today as Shaun Murphy. She was a vocalist in the band Little Feat from 1994 to when she left them in February 2009.

WILLIE AND THE POOR BOYS - Live (1994)

With Mick Jagger and Keith Richards bickering back and forth in the press during the mid-'80s (leading many to assume that the Stones were kaput), bassist Bill Wyman decided to fill up his newly acquired spare time by forming an all-star band, Willie and the Poor Boys. The group's roots lay in the series of high-profile 1983 ARMS Concerts (which raised money for multiple sclerosis research), which led to several of the tour's participants taking it a step further and laying down some tracks in the studio. Included in this stellar lineup were Wyman's Stones mates Ron Wood and Charlie Watts, as well as Jimmy Page, Mel Collins, Andy Fairweather Low, Kenny Jones, and Ringo Starr, among others, while Wyman also served as the album's producer. The resulting 1985 self-titled album was a pleasant enough set of 12 rock & roll/R&B standards (including "Baby Please Don't Go," which a promo video was filmed for), but certainly not anything musically earth-shattering. A self-titled home video was also issued the same year as the album, but little was heard from the group subsequently, leading many to believe that Willie and the Poor Boys was a one-off side project. Yet in 1994 (a few years after Wyman retired from the Stones), Willie and the Poor Boys reappeared once more with an live album.

Recorded live by Lars Hedh of Swedish radio in Halmstad, Sweden on July 31st 1992.

TRACKS:
01. High School Confidential 02. Tear it Up 03. Baby Please Don't Go 04. Medley: a) Ooh Poo Pah Doo - b) Rockin' Pneumonia and the Boogie Woogie Flu 05. Mystery Train 06. Chicken Shack Boogie 07. Stagger Lee 08. What'd I Say 09. Red Hot 10. Lovin' up a Storm 11. Medley: a) Hound Dog - b) Shake Rattle and Roll - c) Looking For Someone To Love 12. Land of 1,000 Dances

PEARLS BEFORE SWINE - The Wizard Of Is (2004)

Pearls Before Swine was an American psychedelic folk band formed by Tom Rapp in 1965 in Eau Gallie, now part of Melbourne, Florida. They released six albums between 1967 and 1971, before Rapp launched a solo career. This is a 2-CD set of all previously unreleased vintage Pearls Before Swine recordings. Disc one features '60s and '70s home demos, out-takes, various studio recordings, works in progress - many songs that never appeared on any Pearls Before Swine albums, various cover songs, experiments, and just an amazing view of Tom Rapp's personal tape archives. Disc two features a complete early '70s live concert performance, as well as other vintage '70s live recordings and radio sessions. San Francisco's Water Records has certainly done right by Tom Rapp and Pearls Before Swine. Not only has the label reissued its Warner Bros. recordings in their entirety individually and as a box set, it has now come up with this 44-track, two-disc collection of rarities and live recordings from 1967-1976. This is a mighty artifact indeed. The first disc contains all sorts of demos and strange little live recordings. Some were made at home by the first edition of the band with Elisabeth Rapp and Wayne Harley, some are solo (including a stunningly beautiful original recording of "Butterflies"), some are with later incarnations, some are with notable musicians like David Bromberg ("City of Gold" and "Mary, Mary"), and some are Nashville session demos. There is also a slew of cover version demos, including highly original readings of Bob Dylan's "Oh Sister," Randy Newman's "Sail Away," Joni Mitchell's "Real Good for Free," the Spector and Bates classic "There's No Other (Like My Baby)," Leonard Cohen's "Suzanne," and even Jacques Brel's "Love, You're Not Alone," along with poems by Shakespeare, W.H. Auden, and Sara Teasdale that Rapp set to music. Disc two features live recordings from a Goddard College show featured in its entirety as well as a Netherlands Radio performance and a performance from the Choate School in 1972. There is also a cut - "Lesson of the 60s" - recorded at Terrastock in 1999. Fans will no doubt find a treasure trove of material here; some exists on bootlegs, but it's awesome to have the cleaned-up quality of the material available officially. The sound, given the wildly varying nature of the tapes, is surprisingly good and the music is truly inspired. Rapp gave listeners no dregs here; this is a fascinating and compelling collection of tapes from the catalog of a genuine musical enigma.

FATHER & SON

Timothy Charles Buckley III (February 14, 1947 – June 29, 1975) was an American singer-songwriter and guitarist. His music and style changed considerably through the years; he began his career based in folk music, but his subsequent albums incorporated jazz, psychedelia, funk, soul, avant-garde and an evolving "voice as instrument" sound. Though he did not find commercial success during his lifetime, Buckley is admired by later generations for his innovation as a musician and vocal ability. He died at the age of 28 from a heroin overdose, leaving behind his sons Taylor and Jeff Buckley, the latter of whom later went on to become a musician as well.

Tim Buckley’s Wings: The Complete Singles 1966–1974 contains A & B side of every U.S. and U.K. single, including one that was never released. 21-song compilation, due out November 18th on Omnivore Recordings, contains recordings produced by legendary Jac Holzman, Paul Rothchild, Bruce Botnick, and Jerry Yester. The booklet features photos and ephemera, as well as an extensive, new interview with Buckley’s longtime friend and collaborator, lyricist Larry Beckett, conducted specifically for this collection. Mastered by Grammy®-winner Michael Graves, the audio sparkles as never before.




Among the legions of rockers who died way too young, including Jeff Buckley's father, Tim, few have approached the artistic range and seemingly limitless potential on display here. In the decade since Buckley's death, there has been such a flood of posthumous releases that it might be hard to remember that he issued only a four-cut live EP and a studio debut album while he was alive. This anthology serves as an effective introduction for the initiate, showing how Buckley could rock with the slash-and-burn intensity of Led Zeppelin on "Eternal Life (Road Version)," turn rapturous with the reverie of "Lover, You Should've Come Ove," and cover the likes of Edith Piaf ("Je N'en Connais Pas La Fin") and Leonard Cohen (his by now iconic transformation of "Hallelujah"). Completists will need this for the live versions of "So Real" and the Smiths' "I Know It's Over," previously unreleased commercially. Whether Buckley would ever have been able to balance the control that mature artistry requires and the ecstatic abandon that distinguished him, such raw talent continues to startle. 14-track pressing features tracks from his two studio albums and includes two rarities, 'So Real' (Live and Acoustic in Japan - non album version/ promo single) and 'I Know it's Over'. (Previously Unreleased - Smiths cover from a session at Sony Studios that was edited for broadcast on WNEW on April 6,1995. It was not included on the radio broadcast.) Other highlights include 'Last Goodbye','Forget Her', 'Everybody Here Wants You' and more. All of the tracks lifted from Grace are pulled from the re-mastered tracks that featured on the Legacy Edition.

THE GRATEFUL DEAD - What Long, Strange Trip It's Been (1977)

The Grateful Dead recorded their first 8 albums for Warner Brothers before leaving to form their own record label in 1972. This era of the Dead produced most of their most well known songs, including "Truckin'", "Sugar Magnolia", "Casey Jones", "Dark Star", etc. Warners' initial attempt to compile the best songs from this period resulted in the greatest hits album "Skeletons From The Closet". Then in 1977 they put out this 2 record set (now 2 CDs), which makes an ideal companion to the earlier hits album. Only one song, "Truckin', is repeated from "Skeletons...". They also include a live version of "St. Stephen", the studio version of which had appeared on the earlier collection. It was certainly misleading of them to subtitle this "The Best Of The Grateful Dead". In reality, most of the best songs got put on the first hits album, and this album has the best of what's left over. But what wonderful leftovers! "Ripple" is fantastic, it certainly would have made the cut for the first hits collection if I had compiled it. Other standouts include "Jack Straw", "Me And My Uncle", "Cumberland Blues", "Brown-Eyed Woman", and "Playing In The Band". The previously-mentioned "Dark Star", which has long been a concert favorite of the deadheads (although it doesn't really do much for me), is also here. This album also includes more live recordings than "Skeletons...", so it begins to paint a more accurate portrait of what the Dead were all about than that collection did. If you own "Skeletons..." and are looking for the logical next step, this is it. If you don't already have "Skeletons...", then start there, not here. Of course, many hard-core deadheads would advise skipping the compilations altogether and just going with all the original albums, but for those of us who don't really feel the need to own 15-20 Dead CDs, the compilations work quite nicely.

WILLIE NILE - World War Willie (2016) & Positively Bob: Willie Nile Sings Bob Dylan (2017)

When Willie Nile first appeared on the scene in 1980, some folks seemed to think he was new wave since he wrote declarative songs that were often three minutes in length, a notion that had fallen out of fashion through much of the '70s (the same thing happened to John Hiatt and Marshall Crenshaw for a spell), while others lumped him in with Bruce Springsteen and other heartland rock acts who were breathing new life into traditional rock & roll forms. With over 25 years of perspective, Nile's self-titled debut now sounds like nothing so much as a strong dose of smart but straightforward rock from a writer who is in love with words but doesn't trip over them as he lays them out. Willie Nile is a lean and wiry set, with the singer brimming with energy even when he slows down the tempos on songs like "They'll Build a Statue of You" and "Across the River" or strips the arrangement down to a single acoustic guitar on "Behind the Cathedral," and when Nile and his band opens up on the edgy "Old Men Sleeping on the Bowery" and the witty "She's So Cold," this is great stuff, with literate but street-smart lyrics, hooky and muscular tunes, and a tight, simpatico band bringing it home. If the album has a flaw, it's the production and engineering from Roy Halee. While Halee's approach is thankfully unobtrusive, the sound is a bit too thin to give the music the force and body it needs (especially the electric guitars), and some of the tracks sound more like demos than finished product. Still, Willie Nile documents some great performances of 11 fine songs, and was an impressive debut for this underappreciated talent.

WOODY GUTHRIE - American Radical Patriot (2013) [6CD] & Pastures Of Plenty: The Best Of (2004)

Throughout his career Woody Guthrie made no excuses or apologies for his left-wing political leanings. But what is surprising is that some of his best work was done for the US government. Woody Guthrie - American Radical Patriot contains all the music he created for the Library of Congress, Bonneville Power Administration, "government recordings" he made during world war two, and V.D. recordings made for the United States Public Health Service.

Produced by Bill Knowlin at Rounder Records and The Woody Guthrie Foundation and Archives Woody Guthrie - American Radical Patriot includes six CDs, one DVD, and one 78 rpm record containing Bob Dylan's rendition of "VD City." The first four CDs are a complete catalog of Woody's Library of Congress recordings, the fifth and sixth CD have his PBA, war-effort, and VD songs, and the DVD contains a documentary film, made in 1999 at the University of Oregon called "Roll On Columbia" about Woody's BPA songs.




Some may argue that these 26 songs aren't Woody Guthrie's "best" songs, but they certainly capture the breadth of the man's musical vision. They will also remind listeners of the debt Bob Dylan owed to him. Probably remembered most for his song "This Land is Your Land," Guthrie was not always so sanguine about America. More characteristic are feelings of anger, sadness, and a kind of grim humor. There are timeless songs: "House of the Rising Sun" and "So Long, It's Been Good to Know You." But most of the songs on this CD recall the bleak days of the Great Depression and the Dust Bowl. The bleakest in the collection is surely "Dust Pneumonia Blues." The 1930s are also remembered with tributes to "Grand Coulee Dam" and "Pretty Boy Floyd." Taken together, these songs are the broken-down voice for a generation of poor, jobless, and uprooted, the people Steinbeck celebrated in "Grapes of Wrath." Listening to this CD, you are reminded of how seldom a voice like Guthrie's has made itself heard in America. This is a collection of songs well worth a long and thoughtful listen.

V.A. - White Mansions (1978) & The Legend of Jesse James (1980) [1999]

The pairing of these two records in a double-CD set, both unusual country-rock concept albums steeped in history from the end of the '70s, is kind of a no-brainer. White Mansions was the better known of the two at the time of their original release, dealing as it does with the history of the American south, and it developed a strong cult following at the time, possibly as a reaction to the success of the television mini-series Roots, and the election of Jimmy Carter (the first Southerner -- apart from Woodrow Wilson -- to reach the White House since the Civil War). The presence of an all-star cast, including Eric Clapton, Jessi Colter, and Waylon Jennings, and Steve Cash and John Dillon of the Ozark Mountain Daredevils (then near the height of their popularity) didn't hurt. It's also the more raw and basic of the two -- though a concept album telling the story of the fall of the southern Confederacy and the culture behind it, it is made up of songs that stand up better on their own, and shows a bracing diversity of styles, ranging from faux-19th century popular music to modern country-rock of a century later. Legend of Jesse James is slicker and smoother, and also seems to make the transition to CD a little better on a technical level. The booklet includes full notes and background on each song, as well as bios on all of the participants and a fascinating account of Paul Kennerley, the English advertising executive whose fascination with American history led to his composing the songs for both albums, and the participation of Glyn Johns as the unifying technical force behind the two productions. The sound is excellent on both discs, and the whole set is well worth more than one listen. And this is the only way to get Legend of Jesse James on CD. Previously available only on an expensive import, these two concept albums about the Civil War were written by Paul Kennerly, produced by Glyn Johns and starred an unbelievable cast of musicians: Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Emmylou Harris, Levon Helm (as Jesse James!), Eric Clapton, Charlie Daniels and Rodney Crowell among others! This 2-CD set includes original and new notes and an unreleased bonus track.

THE YARDBIRDS - Live At The BBC (2016)

The Yardbirds were one of the important bands in the 1960s London blues / pop / rock scene. Early repertoire consisted of blues covers by the likes of Howlin' Wolf, Chuck Berry and Bo Diddley. Numerous personnel changes mean there isn't a definitive Yardbirds line-up. However, Keith Relf (vocals), Chris Dreja (rhythm guitar, later bass), Jim McCarty (drums) and Paul Samwell-Smith (bass, until mid-66) formed the stable part of the band, initially with Top Topham on lead guitar.

2-CD set. 40 restored and remastered tracks. Rare BBC archive recordings. Authoritative liner notes and new quotes. The most comprehensive collection of the Yardbirds BBC ‘live’ recordings, assembled with the assistance of the BBC, with several tracks now all together the first time on this newly restored and remastered 2CD set. Several tracks have been expertly repaired from rare, hard-to-find recordings and feature for the first time on this set. Featuring guitar legends Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page with front man Keith Relf, these sessions were recorded by the world renowned broadcasting organisation for radio transmission and our CDs explore all the available Yardbirds’ BBC Radio One output. Detailed data in the booklet, which also includes authoritative liner notes by Richard Morton Jack, editor of ‘Flashback’ magazine, and contains new quotes from Yardbirds’ Jim McCarty and Paul Samwell-Smith. Jim McCarty also adds an introduction exclusively for this the set, looking back at the BBC years.

PHIL OCHS - Farewells & Fantasies (1997) [REPOST]

Phil Ochs is a figure both glorious and tragic who haunts the history of the 1960s folk revival and its aftermath. A topical singer and songwriter in the manner of Lee Hays, Pete Seeger, and Woody Guthrie from the previous generation, he was forever in the shadow of Bob Dylan in terms of the recognition for his music; but unlike Dylan -- who, in retrospect, seemed to approach his work with overpowering facility and talent, but only occasional moments of definable dedication to the causes seemingly behind the songs -- Ochs truly believed in and embraced those causes, which may have been his tragedy.

In contrast to Dylan, who was an enigmatic media star from 1964 onward -- teasing and even daring the press and public to try and define him -- Ochs embraced the role of ideological outlaw, authoring songs that often stretched (and sometimes ripped) the envelope of acceptable popular political discourse, as well as extending the range and language of folk style music's poetry into new and gloriously rich territory. And what made it even more effective was that he did it with a voice that was so seemingly earnest and unassuming in its appeal. He may never have written anything as widely known as "Blowing in the Wind," "A Hard Rain's a-Gonna Fall," or "Mr. Tambourine Man," but he angered people across the country (and in Mississippi, for other reasons) with "Here's to the State of Mississippi"; roused those who heard them with "The Power and the Glory" (a worthy successor to Guthrie's "This Land Is Your Land") and "I'm Not Marching Anymore"; and moved many thousands to a fresh round of tears about President Kennedy with "Crucifixion." And for all of his outlaw reputation -- which began coalescing around him as early as 1965 in some "respectable," establishment circles -- his work ended up infiltrating high school classrooms through the songs "The Highwayman" and "The Bells," the latter an extraordinarily early intersection between folk song and art song...... - allmusic.com

V.A. - Janis and Elvis (2007)

To mark the 50th anniversary of a unique, and highly-collectible 10" LP, El Toro Records brings you the iconic "Janis & Elvis", re-issuing the eight tracks included originally plus a handful of extra bonus tracks from each artist. One of the rarest and most sought-after record releases from the last half-century of Elvis Presley collectibles, the big ten-incher titled Janis and Elvis was issued through Teal Records, the company who had the local license to issue RCA records in South Africa at the time, and the elusive original now commands figures in excess of $5,000. Sadly, while this release was in production we learned that Janis had been diagnosed with a terminal illness and she has since died. She will be a sadly-missed figure on the current rock 'n' roll scene, having been an indefatigable and exciting performer throughout her life.

CHEAP TRICK - We're All Alright! [Deluxe Version] (2017)

Back in Cheap Trick's late-'70s through mid-'80s heyday, it was standing operating procedure for a working band to crank out an album roughly once a year. Things are a good bit different in the 21st century, but Cheap Trick haven't lost the ability to deliver on a tight schedule. A mere 13 months after Rockford, Illinois' favorite sons dropped their first album for Nashville powerhouse Big Machine Records, 2016's Bang, Zoom, Crazy... Hello, they've knocked out a follow-up, We're All Alright!, and it manages to best the previous long-player for sheer rock action and sense of fun. Like Bang, Zoom, Crazy... Hello, We're All Alright! is a different animal than the band's best work; this dials back on their Beatles-influenced power pop moves, and puts the focus on the band's hard rock action (which has gotten harder since Daxx Nielsen replaced Bun E. Carlos behind the drum kit). And with producer Julian Raymond (who was also behind the controls for Bang, Zoom) on hand, the playful eccentricity that's always marked Cheap Trick's best music doesn't get as much of a hearing. But while this isn't a purist's Cheap Trick album, it's a lot of fun in spite of that. The bandmembers sound like they're having a blast on these sessions, with Rick Nielsen's guitar roaring at every turn, bassist Tom Petersson and drummer Nielsen holding down the backbeat like they're joined at the hip, and vocalist Robin Zander sounding playfully horny on numbers like "Listen to Me," "Nowhere," "Long Time Coming," and "You Got It Going On." If Bang, Zoom sounded like it was carefully worked over to prove the veteran band could still cut the mustard, We're All Alright! feels like the band rolled in and knocked this out with plenty of sweat and little fuss. Though the skillful harmonies and turn-on-a-time performances are a long way from sloppy, this is lively in a way that documents a truly great rock band in its element, and it's been some time since Cheap Trick have made a record that was as howling-along enjoyable as this one. If you're looking for a great hard rock album for the summer of 2017, don't look now, but Cheap Trick have delivered the fast 'n' loud blast that you need. We're All Alright! was also released in a Deluxe Edition featuring three bonus tracks.

TRACKS:
01. You Got It Going On 02. Long Time Coming 03. Nowhere 04. Radio Lover 05. Lolita 06. Brand New Name On An Old Tattoo 07. Floating Down 08. She's Alright 09. Listen To Me 10. The Rest Of My Life 11. Blackberry Way 12. Like A Fly 13. If You Still Want My Love

BOOKER T & THE MG's - Uptight (1968)

UpTight is a soundtrack album by Southern soul band Booker T. & the M.G.'s for the film of the same title. The album's highlights include "Time Is Tight," the single version of which became a US Top 10 hit (the second biggest of their career) and a signature song for the band. The version of "Time Is Tight" included on the Up Tight soundtrack album is an alternate recording, which differs from the single version in several respects: it is in stereo, it is played at a faster tempo, it runs almost two minutes longer (4'55"), and it includes both an extended introduction and an instrumental "breakdown" (beginning around 3'30"), neither of which are in the single version. "Johnny, I Love You" (the B-side of "Time Is Tight") features a rare vocal by keyboardist Booker T. Jones. Judy Clay provides vocals on "Children, Don't Get Weary." The album was recorded at Stax Records' studios by Ron Capone, produced by Jones, and was overdubbed and mixed at Ardent Studios by Steve Cropper and Terry Manning. The album charted at number 98 on the Billboard 200 album chart and number 7 on the Billboard R&B albums chart. "Time is Tight" was covered by the Clash on their 10-inch vinyl Black Market Clash LP in 1980 (and later on their Super Black Market Clash CD) and by Paul Shaffer on his 1993 double CD The World's Most Dangerous Party.

TRACKS:
01. Johnny, I Love You 02. Cleveland Now 03. Children, Don't Get Weary 04. Thank's Lament 05. Blues In The Gutter 06. We've Got Johnny Wells 07. Down At Ralph's Joint 08. Deadwood Dick 09 Run Tank Run 10. Time Is Tight

CAMEL - A Live Record (1978) [2CD] & Pressure Points: Live In Concert (1984)

A Live Record is the first live album by the progressive rock band Camel, released in 1978. It is a double LP, composed of recordings from three different tours. LP one features recordings from the Mirage tour in 1974, and the Rain Dances tour, in 1977. Tracks 1–4 on the LP are from the Rain Dances tour, and 5–6 are from the Mirage tour. LP 2 features the original line-up all the way, and is devoted to a complete performance of the band's instrumental concept album, The Snow Goose, during the tour for the album in 1975, performed with the London Symphony Orchestra at the Royal Albert Hall, London, October 1975. "A Live Record" was released as Decca DBC 7/8 in April 1978. Unlike previous Camel albums, it failed to make the UK album chart, although it remained a consistent catalogue seller. The album also failed to gain a US release as it was completed at the point Camel had fulfilled their contractual obligations to Janus records and were in the process of negotiating a new deal with Arista records for their stateside releases.




Pressure Points: Live in Concert is a live album by progressive rock band Camel, released in 1984. A remastered version with six bonus tracks was released in 2009 as a double CD Set. Pressure Points is the second official live since A Live Record. and hardly measures up to that incredible taste of Camel adventure; however, it is indubitably that Camel have rumbled the concerts and the tours, into more than extensive and better than exhausting means, up for which there is no essential high-point in this 1984 connection, nor is Pressure Points the most inspired album of all chances - in fact, superficiality, short excerpting and rock-glossing are negative ideas on how this live was created and released, ideas I won't use out loud, yet ideas that can be felt, if you are pretentious enough. The random fact is that Camel can't have an essential album once they don't mean that at all. After the silence, Camel released some old time live concerts, only those dull ones being below the excitement and the pasture of Pressure Points.

DAVID CROSBY - Voyage (2006)

Rhino has gone all out to release projects to coincide with the publication of David Crosby's autobiography, Since Then. Along with this triple-disc box set, the label is also reissuing Crosby's first solo recording - an album that carries the word "masterpiece" around with it in the 21st century. While that double disc (the original disc with a bonus cut, and a DVD of the album in a superior mix) may carry some real excitement, it's a head-scratching exercise as to who, exactly, will be interested in this box. Rhino has packaged together three CDs in a deluxe foldout package with a 130-page book with a great liner essay by Steve Silberman, and song-by-song annotations by Crosby. Compiled and produced by Joel Bernstein and Graham Nash, Voyage contains two discs of songs from Crosby's various contributing incarnations as a member of the Byrds, Crosby, Stills & Nash, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Crosby & Nash, and CPR, and as a solo artist. The work here varies in quality, and merely tells a kind of story that has been told in many ways over the individual releases he appeared on. None of his backing vocal sessions with the Jefferson Airplane, New Riders of the Purple Sage, Jackson Browne, Bonnie Raitt, etc., are here. That may be as it should be, but the story would have been fuller and more complete than it is presented here. After all, it is reasonable to assume that anyone interested in the aforementioned acts to any real degree would have this material anyway. And anyone new to those recording artists or to Crosby himself would be ill-disposed to purchasing something this expensive.

So it all comes down to disc three, which is a 16-cut set of unreleased demos, alternates, and rehearsals of Crosby, either solo or with CSN, CSNY, or Crosby & Nash, with one exception - an alternate mix of "Have You Seen the Stars Tonight" with the Jefferson Starship under the leadership of Paul Kantner. Here, there are benefits for fans of rough and "unfinished" recordings. The demos of "Long Time Gone" with Crosby and Stephen Stills is compelling, as are the alternate mix of "Guinnevere" and the demo of "Déja Vu," the latter for its intense showcase of vocal harmony. However, the takes of "Almost Cut My Hair" (acoustic) and "Games" are throwaway ones. "Triad" neither adds nor subtracts from its recorded version; it is merely different. "Cowboy Movie" is a studio take here, over ten minutes in length, that rocks. "Kids and Dogs," the bonus cut on If I Could Only Remember My Name, is a mellow but worthy inclusion. The rest is all of interest, most of it being of very high quality, and the disc is thus recommended to fans in a big way - it would have probably sold on its own. Yet the question remains as to how willing consumers are to go after such a set, even if it is being released in the holiday season.

25th Anniversary Box Set is a 1993 limited edition box set by Jethro Tull. It includes some of the band's best-known compositions from 1969 to 1992, many of them previously unavailable in the versions presented here.

- Remixed Classic Songs: remixes some older tracks;
- Carnegie Hall, N.Y., Recorded Live New York City 1970: benefit concert for Phoenix House to rehabilitate drug abusers.

JOE BONAMASSA - Live at Carnegie Hall - An Acoustic Evening (2017)

Last year, January 21st and 22nd world-renowned platinum-selling and Grammy nominated Blues-rock singer-songwriter and guitarist Joe Bonamassa performed 2 unique all-acoustic shows at the iconic Carnegie Hall in New York City. Both performances were filmed and made into 'Joe Bonamassa Live At Carnegie Hall – An Acoustic Evening'. An evening of extraordinary music with new arrangements of favourite songs as well as brand new, never-before-heard songs. The concert was part of a special all-acoustic tour and featured an all-star ensemble of world-class musicians.

Acclaimed Chinese cellist and erhuist Tina Guo, whose repertoire stretches from classical to heavy metal; and Hossam Ramzy, the Egyptian percussionist and composer, who has performed on dozens of film soundtracks and records, including on Jimmy Page and Robert Plant’s No Quarter: Unledded Tour. Reese Wynans (piano), Anton Fig (Drums) Eric Bazilian (mandolin, hurdy-gurdy, saxophone, acoustic guitar, vocals), and three Australian backing vocalists, Mahalia Barnes, Juanita Tippins, and Gary Pinto. Everyone knows the old saying about how to get to Carnegie Hall, but Bonamassa has truly lived that advice. His entire life and musical career had been practice for this moment, and a young blues-boy finally made good on a childhood dream of playing one of the most hallowed stages in the world. This stripped down, all-acoustic show allowed his fans a glimpse into his soul and presented a thrilling and musically dangerous spectacle akin to walking a tightrope without a net.

DOC & MERLE WATSON - Never The Same Once - Live At The Boarding House, May 1974 (2017)

Doc Watson was a legendary American flat-picking guitarist, songwriter and singer of bluegrass, folk, country, blues, and gospel music, who won 7 GRAMMY Awards and a GRAMMY Lifetime Achievement Award. He performed with his son, the multi-instrumentalist Merle Watson, for more than 15 years until Merle’s death in 1985. Live recordings from this peak period for Doc and Merle in the 1970s are rare.

This set of exquisitely recorded live concerts of Doc & Merle Watson at The Boarding House in San Francisco is from 4 live shows recorded in 1974 by the legendary soundman Owsley Stanley. It contains 94 tracks on 7 CDs, including several rare tracks and songs played for the first/only time by Doc & Merle. This is the first box set of live concert recordings of Doc & Merle Watson and is the first release created by the Owsley Stanley Foundation, a non-profit established to preserve and steward Owsley’s legendary recordings, which are renowned for their quality and clarity. These performances have not been heard since the nights they were played more than 40 years ago and have been preserved and restored to the highest audiophile standards. Each night is distinctly brilliant and equally captivating – reflecting differences in the playing, sound recording techniques, and the energy in the room.

This 7 CD set is packaged in a 5.5 inch wide x 5 inch high x 1.75 inch deep box, featuring 94 tracks, including extraordinary flatpicking of a broad range of music, from bluegrass to swing jazz to rockabilly to gut-bucket blues, and contemporary folk. The included 16 page booklet contains contemporaneous photographs of Doc & Merle as well as of “Old Hoss,” Doc’s first Gallagher guitar which he played from 1968-1974. Old Hoss was retired after this tour and is also featured in the cover art ??– an original poster by ?frequent ?Grateful Dead ?artist, Mike DuBois, based on a design by Bear’s son, Starfinder. Also included is a new in-depth interview with bassist T. Michael Coleman, who performs with Doc and Merle on these recordings, and an original essay by David Holt, 4-time GRAMMY winner and a longtime Doc Watson collaborator.

URIAH HEEP - Look At Yourself (1971) & Demons And Wizards (1972) & The Magician's Birthday (1972) [3 x 2CD, All Remastered, 2017]

‘Look At Yourself’, ‘Demons And Wizards’ and ‘The Magician’s Birthday’ were originally released in 1971 and 1972. Fast forward 46 years, these albums still remains timeless classics. Painstakingly remastered by Andy Pearce these 2CD sets also include previously unreleased alternative mixes that excite, reignite and rejuvenate. There are also extensive liner notes penned by best-selling author Joel McIver which tell the story of the band’s ascent to the very top and are accompanied by new and revealing accounts of the time from Mick Box and Ken Hensley.

Look at Yourself is the third album by British rock band Uriah Heep, released in 1971 by Bronze Records in the UK and Mercury Records in the US. Characterized as heavy metal and progressive rock,[1] the album has come to be viewed as a highpoint in the band's career, and is today regarded by many fans and critics as Uriah Heep's finest album along with Demons and Wizards, released the following year. The title track and "July Morning" were released as singles in the UK and North America in 1971 and 1973, respectively. "Look at Yourself" was the last album to feature founding bassist Paul Newton. The original cover art on the LP featured a single sleeve with a die-cut opening on the front through which a reflective foil "mirror" was seen, conveying a distorted image of the person viewing it. The idea, by guitarist Mick Box, was for the cover to directly reflect the album title, and this theme is carried through the band photos on the rear of the LP sleeve, which have also been distorted. The LP itself was housed in a heavy-duty card inner, complete with lyrics.




Demons and Wizards is the fourth album by British rock band Uriah Heep, released in 1972 by Bronze Records in the UK and Mercury Records in the US. The album helped the band become famous and has sold 3 million copies worldwide. The original vinyl release was a gatefold sleeve, the front of which was designed by Roger Dean. It contained a hidden erotic image of male and female genitalia[citation needed]. The inner sleeve had pictures of the band and notes by Ken Hensley, while the liner featured printed lyrics. The songs "The Wizard" and "Easy Livin'" were released as singles in the UK and North America as well as many other markets. "Easy Livin'" entered the US Top 40 at No. 39, making it Heep's first and only American hit. "Easy Livin'" was also a mega-hit in the Netherlands and Germany, countries which were becoming strong markets for the band. It reached a disappointing No. 75 in Australia.

The Magician's Birthday is the fifth album by British rock band Uriah Heep, released in 1972 by Bronze Records in the UK and Mercury Records in the US. The concept was "based loosely on a short story" written by Ken Hensley in June and July 1972. The original vinyl release was a gatefold sleeve, the front designed by Roger Dean. The inner fold had pictures of the band, with the album itself housed in a liner on which were printed the lyrics. Two songs charted in the United States, "Blind Eye" (No. 97) and "Sweet Lorraine" (No. 91). "Spider Woman" reached No. 13 in Germany. In a retrospective review, Sputnikmusic praised The Magician's Birthday, saying, "Though probably not as cohesive as it could be, it still offers plenty of highlights, earning its place among Heep's finest albums". Reviewer Daniel Dias singled out "Sunrise", noting that it was "a highlight in Heep's catalog and one of the band's finest progressive rock ballads". AllMusic noted the album's prog elements as well, and said, "The Magician's Birthday never quite hits the consistent heights of Look at Yourself or Demons and Wizards but remains a solid listen for Uriah Heep fans". The Magician's Birthday was certified gold by the RIAA on 22 January 1973.

DUFFY - Just In Case You're Interested... (1972) & Scruffy Duffy (1973)

Obscure UK Hard Prog band that released this first album back in 1972 only in South Africa. Second press in 74 in Germany and France (different sleeve). A later press appeared in 1978 on Brazil with an unique sleeve. This is the original 1972 sleeve pressed in a limited run of 400 copies with remastered sound. Duffy took influence from other UK Hard Prog giants such as early Deep Purple and Uriah Heep, but crossed it with pastoral Rock ala Jethro Tull. The band also released a second album in 1973 ("Scruffy Duffy") finishing shortly after their career. Both albums are very hard to find, so it's time for a revamp of this great UK Prog band that should not be forgotten in the UK 70's Rock history!

V.A. - American Epic - The Collection (2017)

American Epic, a film series produced by Allison McGourty, Duke Erikson and Director Bernard MacMahon, explores the pivotal recording journeys at the height of the Roaring Twenties, when music scouts armed with cutting-edge recording technology captured the breadth of American music and discovered the artists that would shape our world. The recordings they made of all the ethnic groups of America democratized the nation and gave a voice to everyone. Country singers in the Appalachians, Blues guitarists in the Mississippi Delta, Gospel preachers across the south, Cajun fiddlers in Louisiana, Tejano groups from the Texas Mexico border, Native American drummers in Arizona, and Hawaiian musicians were all recorded. It was the first time America heard itself.

American Epic: The Collection gathers 100 of these original recordings from the 1920s and 1930s in one five-disc set, restored to unprecedented levels of sonic fidelity. For this box set, compiled by Director Bernard MacMahon, engineer Nicholas Bergh refined a transfer process using a mix of both modern and vintage equipment in order to extract the remarkable resolution from the records that is often missed. This reverse engineering approach to the transfer process enabled the restoration team of Grammy Award-winning engineer Peter Henderson, Duke Erikson and Joel Tefteller to get the resulting audio closer to the original performance than ever before. This is not "remastering," in the normal sense, but something closer to fine art restoration. The intent is not for people to marvel at the antiquity of these discs, but rather to experience them as vital, immediate performances that speak to us as directly as they did on the day they were recorded not simply great art for their time, but great art for all times. It includes a 100-page book filled with stunning unpublished photographs, quotes from the artists, their friends and families, lyrics for every song, essays and recording notes. Among the artists included are Mississippi John Hurt, The Carter Family, Charley Patton, Jimmie Rodgers, Lydia Mendoza, Nelstone's Hawaiians, Big Chief Henry's String Band, Robert Johnson and many others.

V.A. - Texas Flashbacks: 95 Nets From The Lone Star State (2010)

David Shutt was a record collector from Austin, TX with a passion for garage rock and early psychedelia from the Lone Star State. Eager to spread the word about the many great but hopelessly obscure records he'd unearthed over the years, Shutt was responsible for a series of limited-edition vinyl compilations released under the umbrella title Flashback, which featured choice rarities from his archives. The original LP editions of the Flashback series (the last two volumes were billed as Texas Flashbacks) were pressed in small runs of only a few hundred copies, but they've been reissued in various forms by several collectors' labels over the years, and now Psychic Circle (run by Nick Saloman of the Bevis Frond) has brought together the complete series in a box set called Texas Flashbacks, Vols. 1-6. The material has been cleaned up sonically for this edition, with greater success on some tracks than others; a few bits show the effects of a bit too much digital noise reduction, but for the most part, this sounds better than the average collection of vinyl-sourced rarities from the '60s. From a musical standpoint, these six discs lean to rarity over strict quality, but on average, each volume is at least as good as the average installment in the Pebbles or Teenage Shutdown series, and the fact all this music came from one state within a space of a few years says a lot about how good the rock & roll scene in Texas was in the mid-'60s. This also is a bit more eclectic than most garage-centric compilations, often acknowledging the Lone Star psychedelic scene, which more strongly dominates the track listings on the final two discs on this set. This also may be the only garage rock collection that features not one but two bands featuring a violin (Shiva's Headband and the Mind's Eye), as well as two bands boasting future members of ZZ Top (the Moving Sidewalks and the Warlocks). The set is a bit bulky and the packaging leaves a lot to be desired (the sleeves for the six discs reproduce the original artwork for the LPs, which would be more impressive if the graphics weren't so ugly), but the accompanying booklet includes useful data on nearly all the bands (a few still remain unknown all these decades later), and if this is for hardcore garage and psych fans, most of them will feel well-served by this box set.

JOHN PHILLIPS - John Phillips [AKA John, The Wolfking Of L.A.] (1970)

John Phillips (John, the Wolf King of L.A.) is the first solo recording by the Mamas & the Papas leader John Phillips. All songs were Phillips originals, dealing mostly with recent events in Phillips' life, including references to his new girlfriend Genevieve Waite and longtime friend Ann Marshall ("April Anne"). The backing musicians included members of Wrecking Crew. Today the album receives favorable reviews from fans and critics alike. The album was selected as one of ShortList's 50 Coolest Albums Ever. As Phillips was the backing singer in the Mamas and the Papas, with the other three serving as lead singers, the album mix tends to de-emphasize his lead vocals. Denny Doherty stated that, had the Mamas & the Papas performed this album, it would have been one of their finest, because of the strength of Phillips' songs.[6] The single "Mississippi" reached the US Billboard top 40. Phillips and the other members of the Mamas & the Papas were threatened with a lawsuit just as the album was released, discouraging the label from promoting the album. Bob Dylan aped the cover image for his 1975 Desire album.

TRACKS:
01. April Anne 02. Topanga Canyon 03. Malibu People 04. Someone's Sleeping 05. Drum 06. Captain (The Mermaid) 07. Let It Bleed, Genevieve 08. Down The Beach 09. Mississippi 10. Holland Tunnel

A FOOT IN COLDWATER - A Foot In Coldwater (1972) & The Second Foot In Coldwater (1973)

A Foot in Coldwater (sometimes credited as A Foot in Cold Water) was a late 1960s Canadian progressive rock band. Its members were Alex Machin (vocals) who would later also front the rock group Moxy, Hughie Leggat (bass, acoustic guitar, vocals), Paul Naumann (guitar, vocals), Bob Horne (keyboards) and Danny Taylor (drums, percussion).




A Foot in Coldwater, sometimes shortened to simply AFIC by fans, had a number of other names and false starts before settling into what fans would remember them being. Members of this '70s progressive rock group included lead singer Alex Machin; guitarist, bassist, and singer Paul Naumann; drummer and percussionist Danny Taylor; singer, bassist, and acoustic guitarist Hughie Leggat; and keyboardist Bob Horne. In 1971 A Foot in Coldwater was formed out of members from two bands, Island and Nucleus, and a year later a self-titled album was completed. One of the debut's singles, "(Make Me Do) Anything You Want," found its way straight onto the Canadian music charts. In 1973 a sophomore album was released, A Second Foot in Coldwater, recorded under the Daffodil Records label. The second offering didn't do very well, but the band went on with a third, All Around Us. Some of the singles landed on the charts, one rising up to a Top Ten spot. After the third album, A Foot in Coldwater ran into trouble. First, its record label folded, then there were some problems between members that cost them Bob Horne in 1976. There were a few more recordings, but things were pretty much over by 1977.
