THE HOUR GLASS

Hour Glass were a 1960s rhythm and blues band based in Los Angeles, California in 1967 and 1968. Among their members were two future members of the Allman Brothers Band (Duane Allman and his brother Gregg) and three future studio musicians at the world-renowned Fame Studios in Muscle Shoals, Alabama (Pete Carr, Johnny Sandlin and Paul Hornsby).

Hour Glass is the debut album by the group of the same name, issued in October 1967 on Liberty Records, the first of two by the group that featured the namesakes of The Allman Brothers Band. The album was recorded by a group saddled by a producer unable to quite realize the group's potential. Dallas Smith, a formulaic producer noted for his work with Bobby Vee, knew the group was from the South. He knew they had formed from the ashes of groups that had performed liberal amounts of blues covers. And he heard soulful qualities in the voice of nineteen-year-old Gregg Allman. Therefore, he referred to them as a "Motown band", much to the chagrin of the group. Hour Glass was recorded with an emphasis on lead vocalist Gregg Allman's voice and dispensing with nearly all original material. Of the eleven tracks on the original LP, only one was penned by a group member, Gregg Allman's "Got To Get Away". The remaining ten were written by songwriters running the gamut from Curtis Mayfield and Jackson Browne to Del Shannon and the Goffin-King team. The Hour Glass performed the basic tracks, which were overdubbed by Smith with layers of vocals and instrumentation. The album was a failure in both sales terms and in properly showcasing the group. On the follow-up, 1968's Power of Love, the group would be given a bigger role in the making of the album.




Power of Love was the second studio album by Hour Glass, issued in March 1968 on Liberty Records, the final by the group with the namesakes of The Allman Brothers Band. After the failure of their first album, Liberty Records allowed a greater independence for the group, who had been virtually shut out of the decision making for their first album by the label and producer Dallas Smith. However, with the label's decision to retain Smith as producer, the group, especially Duane Allman, once again felt constricted by their label's expectations for the album. With Smith behind the boards, Gregg Allman was still the focus. The younger Allman, who had seen only one of his compositions on the previous album, contributed seven of the twelve tracks. The remainder were two from Marlon Greene and Eddie Hinton and one each from the teams of Spooner Oldham and Dan Penn, John Berry and Don Covay, and John Lennon and Paul McCartney. The group performed all of the instrumentation, with Duane Allman adding electric sitar to their cover of The Beatles' "Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown)", a staple of their live act. Neil Young of Buffalo Springfield wrote the liner notes, describing his experience sitting in on the session for the album track "To Things Before", watching Gregg Allman leading the group through the number.


THE HOUR GLASS - Southbound (2004)

Southbound is a compilation record by Hour Glass, featuring outtakes from each of the group's two albums for Liberty Records, Hour Glass (1967) and Power of Love (1968) as well as material recorded by Gregg Allman in 1968 and 1969 with session musicians in order to prevent Liberty Records from suing the group due to their disbanding. All of the material has been previously released on the 1992 EMI reissues of Hour Glass and Power of Love, both now out of print.

LAURA COX BAND - Hard Blues Shot (2017)

Laura Cox started posting her guitar solos on Youtube in 2008, and has since become one of the best-known girl guitar players on Internet. Laura is a rare blend of twenty-first century talent and traditional musical values, and she was among the first to work using 2.0 tools, mainly Youtube. The figures alone are impressive: more than 50 million views and 220 000 subscribers on Youtube and more than 150 000 « Likes » on her Facebook page, since it was created in 2013. But Laura had an increasing desire to play rock & roll live, the way it should be, and to get on the road, so she decided to make the change from « virtual » to « real », and form her own group. At this point, Laura met Mathieu Albiac, another young and talented guitarist, with similar musical passions. In 2013, the two of them formed The Laura Cox Band, based in the Paris region, and the project was born...

HARD STUFF - The Complete Purple Records Anthology 1971-1973 (2017)

Formed in London, England, in 1972, Hard Stuff comprised John Cann (guitar/vocals), Paul Hammond (drums) - both formerly of Atomic Rooster - and John Gustafson (bass; ex-Quatermass). They secured a recording contract with Purple Records, a label owned by Deep Purple, for which they completed two heavy, power trio styled, selections. Hard Stuff supported Captain Beefheart And His Magic Band on a 1973 UK tour, a musical mismatch which did much to undermine the British band’s emergent reputation. They split up in 1973, after which Gustafson became an in-demand session musician. Cann later enjoyed a novelty hit, ‘Don’t Be A Dummy’ (1979), under the name John Du Cann.

Bulletproof is the first album by the 1970s British rock band Hard Stuff. It was released on Purple Records, the Deep Purple-related record label. It also featured vocalist Harry Shaw, formerly of Curiosity Shoppe (who recorded one single on Deram), but he had left the band by the time of its release and was uncredited. The record sleeve was re-designed to remove Shaw's image (originally shown on the bottom right hand side).

Bolex Dementia is the second and final album by the 1970s British rock band Hard Stuff. During the recording of the album, two members of the band (John Cann and Paul Hammond), were injured in a serious car accident in Belgium. Cann had been sitting in the front passenger seat of their Ford Zodiac and suffered an injured back and broken ribs, while Hammond, who had been asleep in the back seat, broke both his legs. Cann spent a week in hospital in Ostend, and Hammond two months. The band managed to finish recording Bolex Dementia, but Cann later stated, "When I listen to it, it sounds a little patchy and not how we intended it to be... It still has its good moments but it's a shame it all happened the way it did." Hard Stuff split shortly after the release of the album, and the members went their separate ways. After declining to rejoin Atomic Rooster, Cann briefly joined Thin Lizzy before recording a solo album, The World's Not Big Enough. Gustafson joined Roxy Music and later the Ian Gillan Band, while Hammond continued to recover from his injuries before working with Cann on his solo album.

RAINBOW - Since You Been Gone - The Essential (2017)

Rainbow (also known as Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow or Blackmore's Rainbow) are a British rock band led by guitarist Ritchie Blackmore, active from 1975 to 1984 and 1993 to 1997, and again since 2015. They were originally established with Ronnie James Dio's American rock band Elf, but after the first album, Blackmore fired the backing members and continued with Dio until 1979. Three British musicians joined in 1979, singer Graham Bonnet, keyboardist Don Airey, former Deep Purple bassist Roger Glover, and this line-up gave the band their commercial breakthrough with the single "Since You Been Gone". Over the years Rainbow went through many line-up changes with no two studio albums featuring the same line-up. Other lead singers Joe Lynn Turner and Doogie White would follow, and the project consisted of numerous backing musicians. A pioneer to power metal, the band's early work primarily featured mystical lyrics with a neoclassical metal style, but went in a more streamlined, commercial direction following Dio's departure from the group. Rainbow were ranked No. 90 on VH1's 100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock. The band has sold over 28 million records worldwide.

THE ISLEY BROTHERS & SANTANA - Power Of Peace (2017)

"The first time I saw Carlos Santana, he was standing onstage at Woodstock in 1969," says Ernie Isley. "And I’d only been playing guitar for less than a year!" Nearly a half-century later, 65-year-old Ernie and his 76-year-old brother Ronald, best known as funk legends The Isley Brothers, linked up with Santana for Power of Peace. The collaborative LP, out July 28, combines soul harmonies and swift guitar licks with a political righteousness advertised in the project’s title. "The theme is spiritual divine medicine to counter the fever-pitch fear that’s permeating this planet right now," Santana told Billboard of the project in June. Recorded in Las Vegas in 2016, Power of Peace features renditions of songs by Stevie Wonder ("Higher Ground"), The Chambers Brothers ("Love, Peace, Happiness") and Burt Bacharach ("What the World Needs Now Is Love Sweet Love"). "Every era has its song ... to help alleviate the condition of brutality and war." For Santana, Power of Peace and a potential sequel represent more than an enjoyable studio pairing. "This [music] wakes you up beyond religion, beyond politics, beyond nations," says Santana. "It’s our duty to do this."

JONI MITCHELL - Song To A Seagull (1968) & Clouds (1969) & Ladies Of The Canyon (1970) & Blue (1971)

Song to a Seagull (also known as Joni Mitchell) is the debut album by Canadian singer-songwriter Joni Mitchell. Produced by David Crosby, the album was recorded in 1967 at Sunset Sound and released in March 1968 by record label Reprise. Crosby wanted Mitchell to sound pure and natural, so he asked her to sing into the studio grand piano, and set up extra microphones to capture her voice repeating off the strings; unfortunately the set up captured too much ambient noise, resulting in excessive tape hiss, which could only be removed post-production at the cost of the high sounds in the audio range, which gives the album a flat feel. Mitchell had written songs that were hits for other artists (e.g., "Both Sides Now" and "Chelsea Morning" by Judy Collins and Dave Van Ronk, "Eastern Rain" by Fairport Convention, "Urge for Going" and "The Circle Game" by Tom Rush), but none of those songs were recorded for her debut.




Clouds is the second studio album by Canadian singer-songwriter Joni Mitchell, released on May 1, 1969, by Reprise Records. After releasing her debut album to considerable exposure, Mitchell recorded the album at A&M Studios in Hollywood. She produced most of the album and painted a self-portrait for its cover artwork. Clouds has subtle, unconventional harmonies and songs about lovers, among other themes. Clouds charted at number 22 in Canada and number 31 in the United States. It has been certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America, for shipments of 500,000 copies in the US. Clouds was generally well received by music critics.

Ladies of the Canyon is the third studio album by Canadian singer-songwriter Joni Mitchell, released in 1970. The title makes reference to Laurel Canyon, a centre of popular music culture in Los Angeles during the 1960s. The album includes several of Mitchell's most noted songs, such as "Big Yellow Taxi", "Woodstock" and "The Circle Game". The album is notable for its expansion of Mitchell's artistic vision and its varied song topics (ranging from the aesthetic weight of celebrity, to observation of the Woodstock generation, to the complexities of love). Ladies of the Canyon is often viewed as a transition between Mitchell's folky earlier work and the more sophisticated, poignant albums that were to follow.




Blue is the fourth studio album by Canadian singer-songwriter Joni Mitchell. Exploring the various facets of relationships from infatuation on "A Case of You" to insecurity on "This Flight Tonight", the songs feature simple accompaniments on piano, guitar and Appalachian dulcimer. The album peaked at number 3 on the UK Albums Chart and number 15 on the Blllboard 200. Today, Blue is generally regarded by music critics as one of the greatest albums of all time; Mitchell's songwriting and compositions are frequent areas of praise. In January 2000, the New York Times chose Blue as one of the 25 albums that represented "turning points and pinnacles in 20th-century popular music".

WILLIE NELSON - It Will Come To Pass: The Metaphysical Worlds And Poetic Introspections Of Willie Nelson (2014)

Before Willie Nelson the Icon. there was Willie Nelson - sublime songsmith and strling recording artist. Years ahead of his time, Willie languished in relative obscurity as RCA Victor producer extraordinaire Chet Atkins turned this way and that, in a desperate attempt to place Nelson on the charts and into public consciousness. The one thing that shone through all the wilderness years was Willie's undeniable talent and introspective muse. For the very first time Willie's rare, misunderstood and poetic sides from his mid-1960s-early 1970s tenure at RCA Victor are curated and presented with love and care. Astonishing and mind-bending cuts like Jimmy's Road and It Will Come To Pass are just a taste of some of the most philosophical and lysergic sounds ever captured in a Nashville studio. This deluxe edition is remastered from the original RCA Victor mastertapes and presented with exclusive liner notes, rare photos and unreleased tracks.

KENNY WAYNE SHEPHERD BAND - Lay It On Down (2017)

As a renowned hot-rodder and speed-freak, perhaps it’s apt that Kenny Wayne Shepherd’s musical career has no reverse gear. Awards, acclaim and platinum album sales flash by in a blur. No doubt, Lay It On Down is an of-the-moment album that invites the listener into Shepherd’s headspace as he reaches the age of 40.

Yet on songs like Louisiana Rain – saluting the home-state where Shepherd came up as the music-obsessed son of a radio station magnate – this fascinating album also joins the dots to the formative events that led him here. “That song is personal,” he nods. “It’s written from my experience. Because no matter where I go in the world, there’s always something that brings me back to Louisiana. That place will always be my home.” In January 2017, when Shepherd and his band entered the Echophone Studios in Shreveport, Louisiana, the mission statement was nothing if not ambitious. The greatest songs of Shepherd’s career. No more. No less. “The point of this album,” he says, “was that I wanted to put a heavy emphasis on the songs themselves and the writing behind them. I wanted each song to really stand on ist own with the songwriting, the music, the words.” True to the brief, Lay It On Down is a tracklisting that runs the musical gamut, with songs that will be embraced by Shepherd’s long-standing fans, alongside moments that strike out in fresh directions.

KEITH EMERSON - Off the Shelf (2006)

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the re-release of the archive collection “Off the Shelf” by Keith Emerson. Originally issued in 2006 and long deleted, this collection (compiled by Keith Emerson) was a marvellous anthology of various recordings in Emerson’s archives. Keith Emerson’s work as a virtuoso keyboard player, composer and arranger for The Nice, Emerson Lake & Palmer is legendary. During his extensive career, Keith was never restricted by musical norms or classification. His music revealed the breadth of his musical influences, from classical composers such as Mussorgsky to Charlie Parker, rock & roll to The Band to Frank Zappa. Off the Shelf was Keith Emerson’s means of revealing a collection of recorded works for various projects dating as far back as 1968 with The Nice, some of which were consigned to the archives for a variety of reasons and destined to remain unreleased until Off the Shelf was first issued. They feature recordings with the London Philharmonic Orchestra, the London Jazz Orchestra and legendary musicians including Levon Helm & Garth Hudson (of The Band), Aynsley Dunbar, Pat Travers, Cozy Powell and more. This Esoteric Recordings edition sees the welcome appearance once more of a classic collection.

"Some of the musical styles presented here contributed to my work with Emerson Lake & Palmer and also The Nice. I feel very fortunate to have played certain pieces with musicians who are the best in their field. So abandon any expectation of continuity and expect the unexpected as I presente 'Off the Shelf' - a veritable cornucopia of Pot Pourri within an audio montage! This is all stuff I love and want to share with you now." - Keith Emerson

GRATEFUL DEAD - Smiling On A Cloudy Day (2017)

The Grateful Dead was an American rock band formed in 1965 in Palo Alto, California. Ranging from quintet to septet, the band is known for its unique and eclectic style, which fused elements of rock, psychedelia, experimental music, modal jazz, country, folk, bluegrass, blues, reggae, and space rock, for live performances of lengthy instrumental jams, and for their devoted fan base, known as "Deadheads". "Their music," writes Lenny Kaye, "touches on ground that most other groups don't even know exists." These various influences were distilled into a diverse and psychedelic whole that made the Grateful Dead "the pioneering Godfathers of the jam band world". The band was ranked 57th by Rolling Stone magazine in its The Greatest Artists of All Time issue. The band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1994 and a recording of their May 8, 1977 performance at Cornell University's Barton Hall was added to the National Recording Registry of the Library of Congress in 2012. The Grateful Dead have sold more than 35 million albums worldwide.

The Grateful Dead were at the cultural epicenter of the scene at Haight-Ashbury and the Summer of Love. This is a new compilation on 1 LP and 1 CD of core Grateful Dead tracks from this period.

MR. BIG - Defying Gravity (2017)

American rock survivors Mr Big return with their new album Defying Gravity proving they are still rocking out in fine form after all these years. Recorded in just under a week and produced by Kevin Elson who did their first few albums back in the day, Defying Gravity is a fun album with a few nostalgic moments including the opening spoken "We're Rolling" in addition to some quirky moments that keep things interesting. The performances by each band member are all great and Eric Martin still delivers those beautiful vocals but the musical virtuosity is certainly a lot more tame compared to previous albums. I have to mention a slight negative point for me was that the mixing sounds a little muffled compared to the best recordings available today. This may have been due to the quick process of recording or it may be intentional but either way it could have been improved to make the music sparkle more. Highlights include the opening track "Open Your Eyes" which starts things off with a big bluesy groove, the awesome guitar hooks in "Defying Gravity", the excellent acoustic ballad "Damn I’m In Love Again" which features a great vocal hook, the unique guitar riff and memorable chorus of "Mean To Me", and the classic Mr Big sound of power ballad "Forever And Back". The Japanese edition includes a radio edit of "Defying Gravity" which has a crisper mix that I would have loved throughout the album. Despite the fact that there are a couple of clunkers on an album that's much stronger in the first half of the set, Defying Gravity should still satisfy fans of the band without setting the world on fire.

TRACKS:
01. Open Your Eyes 02. Defying Gravity 03. Everybody Needs A Little Trouble 04. Damn I'm In Love Again 05. Mean To Me 06. Nothin' Bad ('Bout Feelin' Good) 07. Forever & Back 08. She's All Coming Back To Me Now 09. 1992 10. Nothing At All 11. Be Kind 12. Defying Gravity (Radio edit) (Bonus track)

AMOS GARRETT - Buried Alive In The Blues (1994) & Off The Floor Live! (1996)

Detroit native Amos Garrett began working as a professional guitarist north of the border in Toronto. There he played with the Dirty Shames, a folk jug band, before moving on to the country-rock-oriented Great Speckled Bird at the invitation of Ian and Sylvia Tyson. Maria Muldaur's "Midnight at the Oasis" features his guitar playing, as does Anne Murray's "Snowbird." Other artists who have utilized his talent include Stevie Wonder, Emmylou Harris, Jesse Winchester, Paul Butterfield, Hungry Chuck, and Geoff Muldaur. His studio work led him to California, and he continued to record with other artists. Later, with the Eh Team backing him, Garrett also put out his own recordings, more than half a dozen on Stony Plain Records. In 1989, his album The Return of the Formerly Brothers, garnered a Juno Award. The release also featured Gene Taylor (formerly of Downchild, the Blasters, and later with the Fabulous Thunderbirds) and Doug Sahm of the Texas Tornados. Garrett and the Eh Team continue to play nightspots in Canada, where he resides in Alberta. He toured Japan in 1990, with stops in Kyoto, Osaka, and Tokyo. The concerts there found their way onto a live album.




This is the first live album of this Canadian guitar virtuoso with the wonderful mellow baritone voice (mindful of foggy nights on the West Coast). Amos Garrett and his band, the Eh Team, are in great shape here, just moving along and laying down a very satisfying and moving groove. The many forms of the blues -- from laid-back big-band jump blues to the big-city Chicago sound, country blues, and rip-out-the-stops electric blues -- are all displayed here, with Garrett's rich voice and stunning guitar work leading everything along. This is no pick-up band. After playing together for ten years, their grown-together familiarity is apparent all throughout the disc, and they also get their individual chances to shine in many places. Ron Casat ably takes the vocal chores on his writing contribution, "Looking for a Sign." The shining gem on this excellent live album is the old Santo & Johnny tune "Sleepwalk"; listen to the daring guitar work Garrett takes to the edge with this tune. Or you might want to give a good loud listen to "Willie and the Hand Jive," the Johnny Otis classic; just try keeping your feet off the dancefloor during this astonishing version.

Extended-play formats were hugely popular in the U.K. during the 1960s. Often EPs were collections of previous singles or selected cuts from albums - their popularity due to albums not being an affordable item for many consumers until the end of the decade. Unlike many acts, Manfred Mann were to use the EP format as an opportunity to showcase new material. Only releasing two albums during their stay with EMI, a huge number of tracks not considered for singles found their way onto EPs, three of which The One in the Middle, There's No Living Without Your Loving, and Machines hit the number one spot on the nation's EP charts. This collection gathers together some hidden gems such as "Groovin," Bob Dylan's "With God on Our Side," and the self-penned "The One in the Middle," initially written for but rejected by the Yardbirds. It also includes several early singles, including "5-4-3-2-1," "Cock-a-Hoop," and the transatlantic number one "Do Wah Diddy Diddy." However, this package is sadly not definitive, lacking several tracks such as "I Put a Spell on You" and "Let's Go Get Stoned" from There's No Living Without Your Loving and the majority of cuts from the band's 1966 Instrumental Asylum EP. Yet for the Mann enthusiast who wishes to go beyond the purchase of a standard hits package, this is an excellent introduction to some of the group's more eclectic work.

TRACKS:
01. 5-4-3-2-1 02. Cock-A-Hoop 03. Without You 04. Groovin' 05. Do Wah Diddy Diddy 06. Can't Believe It 07. The One In The Middle 08. Watermelon Man 09. What Am I To Do 10. With God On Our Side 11.

Machines 17. She Needs Company 18. Tennessee Waltz 19. When Will I Be Loved 20. I Got You Babe

BETTY - Handful (1971)

Saying this record is a classic product of its time understates - the cover art alone, referring to the title by showing a denim-clad female rear in the hands of a no doubt appreciative fellow, is so beyond irony that Spinal Tap might as well have jacked it in before they started. (It isn't made any less clear by having the full song title on the album be "Handful [Of Love].") Handful, apparently the one album ever recorded by the gleefully scuzzy L.A.-area quartet, recorded and released in a limited run in 1971 specifically to sell at their shows, isn't a lost masterpiece by any stretch of the imagination. After generations of completely gone acts from Hawkwind to Monster Magnet taking "boogie" as generally understood to the outer reaches of sanity, Betty are tame in comparison, exuberant rather than hot-wired. That said, and especially for what must have been a quick and cheap recording session at the time, they have a garagey elan, with the muddy, echoed vocals and air of warm fuzz about the whole thing - if the 2007 reissue is mastered from vinyl, it wouldn't be a surprise - and the bandmembers do their best to make their mark. Guitarist Anthony Davis takes most of the lead vocals, and while he's not much more than an enthusiastic journeyman with his embrace of bluesy cliches and "Guitar!" interjections, there's been a lot worse in later years as boogie turned into dull-ass blooze. There are definite moments of flash, though - the skeletal, heavily flanged guitar solo on "Just for Fun," whether by Davis or by fellow guitarist Mike McMahon, makes for an unsettling addition to a straightforward enough chug, for instance. More an artifact than a new addition to a fairly weighty canon, Handful is if nothing else a signpost to a now long-departed era.

TRACKS:
01. Boogie With You 02. Blind With Shame 03. Just For Fun 04. High Rollin' On The Freeway 05. River Bummin' 06. Handful (Of Love) 07. Thank You 08. Learn How To Boogie 09. Harley Perdoo 10. Lights Gonna Shine

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.

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.
