VA - Up All Night 20 Heavy Nuggets From the Golden Age of Hard Psych [2009]

 

HARD PSYCH

VA - Up All Night 20 Heavy Nuggets From the Golden Age of Hard Psych [2009]

In the late 60's and early 70's, many bands were making, or caught in, the transition between psychedelia and hard rock. This comp has 20 cuts from that mini-genre's heyday, most of them from quite obscure bands and releases, though a few actually made a modest commercial impact. Certainly SRC (represented by the "Up All Night" title track) are fairly well remembered and fairly well regarded, as to different extents are a few other acts here, like Damnation of Adam Blessing, the Litter, and Sir Lord Baltimore. Most of these fellas (and they certainly are all fellas, likely strutting their pretty macho-oriented stuff to a largely male audience as well) won't be familiar to many collectors, however, though some had connections to famous figures like Rick Derringer, Frijid Pink, Johnny Winter, Eddie Kramer, Shadow Morton, Mountain, and Frank Zappa. It's well annotated and for the most part rare, if ultimately rather more pedestrian than the packaging. The songs are often on the grim side and motored by riffs more aggressive than catchy. They're sometimes very derivative, too, Granicus' "You're in America" taking the cake as one of the most blatant Led Zeppelin imitations, and Yesterday's Children's "Providence Bummer" being a thin rewrite of the Yardbirds' "The Nazz Are Blue" (which itself was a thin rewrite of "Dust My Blues"). One longs for more deviations from the usual approaches, which come along occasionally in cuts like Euclid's super-heavy cover of the Spencer Davis Group's "Gimme Some Lovin'"; the West Coast psychedelia-influenced vocal harmonies of Dragonfly's "Enjoy Yourself"; and the contrast of maniacal laughter, playful nursery rhyme psychedelia, and doom-soaked horror-movie vocals in Haystacks Balboa's "The Children of Heaven." (AllMusic Review by Richie Unterberger )

Anyone who thinks the hippie era was all about peace, love and flowers will have a rude awakening when they hear this blistering collection of frenetic proto-psych.  Culled from some of the best underground American hard rock albums of the late 60's and early 70's, it's a bone-shaking, blood-curdling trip from start to finish, featuring some of the toughest riffs and finest guitar solos you've never heard.

VA - I Can See Through You, 60's Psychedelic Rock & Garage Beat Rarities, Vol. 01 to Vol. 04 (4 x CD's)

 



PSYCHEDELIC ROCK

VA - I Can See Through You, 60's Psychedelic Rock & Garage Beat Rarities, Vol. 01 to Vol. 04 (4 x CD's)

My freind Ziggy sent this set to me. After listening I would recommend anyone to listen to these. I have no details of the label that produced these 4 volumes or where to buy these. They may simply be bootlegs or someones compilations (For which we should be grateful). Whatever the background of the 4 CD's, the sound is excellent as are the compilers choices. I wish I could say more about these. Just pick them up and listen for yourself... a great selection of Psychedelic, Rock and Pop.

John Hiatt - Anthology [2001] (2 x CD's)

 

JOHN HIATT

John Hiatt - Anthology [2001] (2 x CD's)

As of its 2001 release, there are at least three other single-disc compilations of John Hiatt's prolific career available, but none truly does justice to his immense body of work. Until now. This intelligently collected, sequenced, and annotated double pack delivers 40 tracks covering 15 of Haitt's albums from his inauspicious yet refreshingly naive debut (1974's Hangin' Around the Observatory) to 2000's all-acoustic Crossing Muddy Waters, a return of sorts to his rural roots. Fans may quibble with the song selection, lack of previously unreleased material, and the inclusion of only one rarity ("Spyboy," his Jack Nitzsche-produced contribution to the obscure Cruising soundtrack), but this is as close to a perfect summation of Hiatt's career through 2001 as one could hope for without expanding to the box set he probably deserves. Hip-O thoughtfully licenses tracks from Sony, Capitol, Reprise (for Little Village's "Don't Think About Her..."), and Vanguard, in addition to including hefty chunks of his defining A&M years as well as the more spotty yet essential MCA and Geffen work. The overall effect is staggering in its stylistic diversity and sheer volume of ruggedly melodic singer/songwriter tunes. Whether it's his vaguely new wave rockers like "Doll Hospital," country weepers such as "The Way We Make a Broken Heart," the twangy pop of "Memphis in the Meantime," heartfelt, emotionally tugging ballads like "Lipstick Sunset" and "Feels Like Rain," or the Stones-y crunch of "Paper Thin," there are precious few clinkers here. Each disc maxes out at 78 minutes, the 16-page book is filled with an informative essay, quotes from the artist, and rare pictures (but surprisingly lacks specific track personnel, a major omission considering Hiatt has worked with a stellar assortment of talented musicians), and the 24-bit remastered sound is crisp, lean, and clean. As of its 2001 release date, the modestly titled Anthology is the definitive portrait of one of America's most talented, respected, and eclectic songwriters.  (AllMusic Review by Hal Horowitz)

VA - Dust on The Nettles, British Underground Folk Scene 1967-72 [2015] (3 x CD's)

 

BRITISH UNDERGROUND FOLK

VA - Dust on The Nettles, British Underground Folk Scene 1967-72 [2015] (3 x CD's)

3 CD's of rare forgotten music. This is British Folk Music going psychedelic. 

Dust On The Nettles with 63 tracks and a total running time of just under four hours, examines the metamorphosis that British folk underwent during the late 1960's, when the influence of psychedelia and the counterculture saw the idiom being twisted into all kinds of new and exotic shapes, as the finger-in-the-ear folk clubs of yore were inexorably drawn into a brave new world of Arts Labs, free festivals and the nascent college/university circuit. Our anthology incorporates the various overlapping strands of the underground folk scene: the acid folk experimenters, the folklorists and trad song updaters, the more metaphysical element of the burgeoning singer/songwriter genre, the newly-electric folk rockers, the elemental paganism exemplified by Comus and The Wicker Man, even the early 1970's Jesus music movement that spawned the likes of the sitar-wielding Parchment. Balancing the familiar with the obscure, we feature acknowledged brand leaders like Fairport Convention, Incredible String Band, Pentangle and Steeleye Span alongside acts who made music purely for the local communities that nurtured them: Shide & Acorn on the Isle of Wight, Folkal Point in Bristol, Music Box in Coventry, Chrissie Quayle in Cornwall. We incorporate a large number of recordings that weren't issued at the time, sample impossibly rare albums by the likes of Oberon, Dry Heart and Benjamin Delaney Lion, and feature key recordings from a number of bands who underpinned the thriving live scene of the era. Housed in a clambox featuring a lavishly illustrated and annotated 36-page booklet, the painstakingly-assembled Dust On The Nettles is surely the most comprehensive and wide-ranging anthology to appear thus far of the UK underground hippie folk movement of the late 1960's- early 1970's.

This is an excellent overview of British folk music in all it's permutations in the late 60's - early 70's. Included are traditional folk music, acid-folk, folk-rock, pagan-folk, Christian-folk, and anything else that doesn't quite fit a category. The sound is very good, especially when you consider the various sources and years involved. This set is a benchmark for how it can be done. (Amazon)

VA - Heavy Sugar The Pure Essence Of New Orleans R&B [2010] + VA - Heavy Sugar, Second Spoonful [2011] (6 x CD's)

HEAVY SUGAR

VA  - Heavy Sugar The Pure Essence Of New Orleans R&B [2010] + VA - Heavy Sugar, Second Spoonful [2011] (6 x CD's)

Over the course of time, Heavy Sugar has been the title of a song, the name of a radio station, an independent movie and the primary ingredient for a rapturous recipe. How fitting it is that this latter description also epitomizes the ingredients that go to make up Heavy Sugar: The Pure Essence of New Orleans R&B. Just think, if the celebrity chefs of New Orleans were to whip up Heavy Sugar until the peaks start to form, then the hostesses on Bourbon Street would go that little bit further and add any flavour necessary to achieve a creamy finish.  The musical melting-pot, which helped turn rhythm & blues into rock ‘n’ roll, was always at its most flavoursome in the Crescent City. Issuing forth from a store-front recording facility, the beguiling big beat reached out to a global audience through such artists as Fats Domino, Little Richard, Huey Smith and Lloyd Price. Many lesser-known but equally worthy individuals achieved the same level of sass, Alberta Hall, Ray Washington, Harry Lee, TV Slim to name but a few, although usually with just a couple of releases to show for their troubles. The focal point of the operation centred around a remarkable house-band that assembled day-after-day at Cosimo Matassa’s funky studio in the heart of the French Quarter. Date-wise the metronome began ticking towards the end of the ’40s, which was when the hip crowd first latched on to rhythm & blues. Rather than being restricted to a minority audience, the music’s freewheeling ambience ended up blowing off anyone and everyones’ cobwebs. New Orleans came out on top, because its talented musicians were able to put onto record the good time feel that was heard in the clubs. In order to share the joy, Fantastic Voyage has trawled through the city’s rich musical repertoire to arrive at 75 highly sought-after recordings. Compiled and annotated by record producer and music historian Stuart Colman, and with many titles on CD for the first time, Heavy Sugar: The Pure Essence of New Orleans R&B could easily end up being one of the releases of 2010. 

Following the critical acclaim and enthusiastic response to Heavy Sugar: The Pure Essence of New Orleans R&B, compiler Stuart Colman has dug deep into the city s unique recording legacy to bring about a sumptuous second helping. In addition to the requisite sourcings, the net has been cast wider still in order to focus on material gleaned from such picayune outlets as Rustone, Pontchartrain, Athens, Winner and Spinett. There is a very good reason for this. Midway through July 1954, The Times-Picayune (New Orleans powerful daily broadsheet) brought to its readership s attention an editorial issue entitled Music Box Week . The feature centered on a coming together of the area s record industry chiefs, and their declaration that the juke box had become a national institution. Never had a truer word been spoken. Every diner, bar, night club, laundromat and military barracks within the city limits sported a Wurlitzer, a Seeburg or a Rock-Ola, and the multitude of coins dropped into the slots gave rise to a win-win situation. With the coming of rock & roll in the mid-fifties, it was the Big Easy s arsenal of neon Nickel Odeons rather than its radio stations where you could hear the latest sounds first. This gave the shoe-string independents, most of whom were unlikely to accrue a review in the trades or make a programme director s playlist, the chance of some welcome promotion. So, in order to reflect this freewheeling coalescence, names like Johnny Love, Willie West and Alonzo Stewart have been given the chance to rub shoulders with such greats as Fats Domino, Little Richard and Huey Piano Smith. Welcome to Heavy Sugar: Second Spoonful. (Amazon)

Scott Walker - In Five Easy Pieces, A Themed Five CD Anthology [2003] (5 x CD's)

 

SCOTT WALKER

Scott Walker - In Five Easy Pieces, A Themed Five CD Anthology [2003] (5 x CD's)

Noel Scott Engel (January 9, 1943 – March 22, 2019) better known by the stage name Scott Walker, was an American singer-songwriter, composer and record producer who resided in England. Walker was known for his baritone voice and an unorthodox career path which took him from 1960's teen pop icon to 21st-century avant-garde musician. Walker's success was largely in the United Kingdom, where his first four solo albums reached the top ten. He lived in the UK from 1965 and became a UK citizen in 1970. Rising to fame in the mid-1960's as frontman of the pop music trio the Walker Brothers, he began a solo career with 1967's Scott, moving toward an increasingly challenging style on late-1960's baroque pop albums such as Scott 3 and Scott 4 (both 1969). After sales of his solo work started to decrease, he reunited with the Walker Brothers in the mid-1970s. From the mid-1980s onward, Walker revived his solo career while moving in an increasingly avant-garde direction; of this period in his career, The Guardian said "imagine Andy Williams reinventing himself as Stockhausen". Walker's 1960's recordings were highly regarded by the 1980's UK underground music scene, and gained a cult following. Walker continued to record until 2018. He was described by the BBC upon his death as "one of the most enigmatic and influential figures in rock history". (Wikipedia)

Scott Walker - In Five Easy Pieces is a box set anthology of the career (to date 2003) of Scott Walker. Subtitled - A Themed Five CD Anthology. A long hardbook-style boxset from one of the most powerful voices in music, whose influenced everyone from David Bowie to Ken Stringfellow has given us 93 digitally remastered tracks spread across five themed discs, 'In My Room', 'Where's The Girl', 'An American In Europe', 'This Is How You Disappear', & 'Scott On Screen', ranging from 60's Spector-esque pop to the French cabaret pop of Jacques Brel plus many rarities & soundtracks on one CD for the first time. This is a brilliant box set not out in the U.S.! 

You could not have asked for a more apt title for a collection of work. This is a basically a selection of songs by Scott Walker containing solo, soundtrack work, compositions for other artists as well as recordings with the Walker Brothers spread over five thematically sequenced CD's. Scott Walker's career has been his own making. An American who found fortune in England in 1965 with the Walker Brothers and then walking away from that to become a crooner and then the definitive interpreter of Jacques Brel's material as well as writing his own songs in increasing complexity both lyrically and musically. After various reunions with the Walker Brothers, Walker continued to release albums that were increasingly questioning the idea of what exactly a song should be and how an album should sound. Walker's later work on albums like "Tilt" and "The Drift" is not for everyone, not even fans of Scott Walker. This set is not a greatest hits collection but a collection of songs that challenge the listener to accept Scott Walker on his own terms. If you are looking for songs like "The Sun Ain't Going To Shine Anymore" you are going to be very disappointed. But if you looking for something different to play on that big stereo system than this collection is for you.  (Amazon)
