Oscar Peterson - Exclusively For My Friends [2014] (6 x CD's)



Oscar Peterson - Exclusively For My Friends [2014] (6 x CD's)

Exclusively for My Friends is a series of six albums for the MPS label by Canadian jazz pianist Oscar Peterson. The album tracks were recorded live by Hans Georg Brunner-Schwer for MPS on the occasion of private concerts with a small audience in his home studio. The albums have been collected in different box sets over the years.

Recording took place in six separate sessions between 1963 and 1968 in different trio settings as well as with Peterson playing solo. The recordings include performances with his most well-known trio consisting of double bassist Ray Brown and drummer Ed Thigpen and also teams him with bassist Sam Jones and drummers Louis Hayes or Bobby Durham. While around 60 tracks were recorded, only 37 were initially released in five trio albums and one solo album, the first in Peterson's career. The titles on each album were often selected from different recording sessions. Peterson was personally involved in selecting and editing the tapes. Due to contractual reasons, the albums were not released before 1968.   In 1992, the series was re-released as a four CD box set by MPS (and by Verve in the US) which included all recordings of the six original albums. In 1995, the release of the compilation Exclusively for My Friends: The Lost Tapes added twelve previously unreleased tracks to the collection. The constituent albums were also available as individual CD's.  MPS released remastered versions of the original albums as a six LP box set in 2014. One year later, an eight CD box set followed that collected the six albums plus two volumes of Lost Tapes, adding another ten tracks to the overall release group which were personally selected by Hans Georg Brunner-Schwer for release shortly before his death in 2004.

Little Feat - Waiting for Columbus [1978] (2 x CD's)


Little Feat - Waiting for Columbus [1978] (2 x CD's)

Waiting for Columbus is the first live album by the band Little Feat, recorded during seven performances in 1977. The first four shows were held at the Rainbow Theatre in London on August 1–4, 1977. The final three shows were recorded the following week at George Washington University's Lisner Auditorium in Washington, D.C. on August 8–10. Local Washington radio personality Don "Cerphe" Colwell can be heard leading the audience in a "F-E-A-T" spellout in between the first ("Join the Band") and second ("Fat Man in the Bathtub") tracks.

The band were backed by the Tower of Power horn section with whom they had recorded for their 1974 album Feats Don't Fail Me Now. The result was one of their biggest selling albums.

Many of their more well-known songs were either re-worked or extended. For instance, one of their signature songs, "Dixie Chicken", was heavily extended to include a lengthy piano solo by keyboardist Bill Payne, a Dixieland horn arrangement and finally a dual guitar jam between the band's two guitarists, Lowell George and Paul Barrère. In some cases, songs such as "Rocket in My Pocket" and "Mercenary Territory" were re-worked to include the horn section, and Little Feat additionally covered such tunes as Fraternity of Man's "Don't Bogart That Joint" and Allen Toussaint's "On Your Way Down" (which had also appeared on 1973's Dixie Chicken album). Former Rolling Stones guitarist Mick Taylor makes a guest appearance playing slide guitar on "A Apolitical Blues". The band recorded and mixed enough material from these performances for a triple LP, but for marketing reasons kept it to a double album. Three of the unused tracks were included on their 1981 album Hoy-Hoy!.  (Wikipedia)

And as far as live albums go, this is probably the most amazing "you are there" experience you'll ever hear. Production and performances are flawless,  you almost feel that these songs were really only meant to be done live.

"There were a lot of things I listened to, but so-called pop music never killed me, you know, the type of stuff that always seems to make it on the radio. The whole radio thing seems so ... it's like they've accepted the whole "new wave" thing only because this kind of pop element came into it. In Europe they really love emotion, but here it's like, "let's stay away from it because we might cry or something"...Tom Verlaine

VA - Rare Soul, Groove & Grind 1963-1973 [2015] (4 x CD's)



VA - Rare Soul, Groove & Grind 1963-1973 [2015] (4 x CD's)

Apparently there was a surfeit of acts all vying for their shot at the merry-go-round brass ring of R&B popularity during what is typically considered the golden age of soul. Add one more to the lot as this mammoth, four disc 8”x8” formatted book/set collects 112 singles, most of them so obscure they have never officially appeared on CD. Along with 128 pages of extensive notes by historian Bill Dahl and full color pictures of the 45 RPM labels all on heavy stock, this attempts to move to the front of the pack, if only in terms of sumptuous presentation. The CD's are divided thematically; Urban Soul, Vocal Groups, Southern soul and the final platter concentrating on more dance oriented (but pre-disco) material. The acts are as colorful as the music with such eye-catching names as The Flint Emeralds, Mad Dog & the Pups, Maskmen & the Agents, and the Tenth Dymentions all vying for your attention in bite size (most under three minutes) tracks of smoking, sweat soaked testifying. The mono sound and occasional pops and crackles inevitable when crate digging this deeply occurs, generally enhances the overall retro vibe. (americansongwriter.com)

This is a first ever collection of Rare Soul that assembles ultra, hard-to-find,Soul 45's. Highly collectible, and highly prized by those who love the genre. Virtually all of these songs have never been on CD before, and making their digital debut here in this deluxe collection. With encyclopedic liner notes by Bill Dahl, this book and CD release certainly raises the bar for this genre. The songs have been grouped in categories.  It blows my mind how many "deep soul" records were made in the 60's. I've just touched the iceberg, and I probably have hundreds of  "deep soul" collections, from the obvious, like Stax, Atlantic,Chess to VeeJay, Galaxy, Minit, King, Sue to labels like Call Me, and all sorts of obscure one-offs. This is a killer collection of rare soul, R & B, hidden gems that someone has mined from what must have been a quite vast collection. There is truly excellent music throughout the 4 CD's. This may well be one pf the greatest compilations of obscure soul tracks from the 63-73 period. Not only is it really well crafted and put on with wonderful songs, but the box's packaging and the liner notes from soul historian Bill Dahl really take you on a journey from which you might never return! This box set IS a must have. (Amazon)

Pink Floyd - Shine' On Box Set [1992] The Early Singles + Antiques, A Rare Collection of Oddities (1967-1971) [2015] + A Nice Pair [1973] + The Early Years- 1967-1972  Creation [2016] (5 x CD's)

Pink Floyd - Shine' On Box Set [1992] The Early Singles       The "Shine On" box set remains my favourite box set I've ever bought by Pink Floyd. It's packaging and presentation shames all the later efforts. And the mastering a are still very good. The EARLY SINGLES bonus CD is great. It compiled, for the first time ever, the band's first five 7" single A- and B-sides, in their original mono mixes. Its disappointing that it didnt include Scream Thy Last Scream (Studio outtake) and Vegetable Man. Unlike the other discs in the box set, The Early Singles was housed in a digipak case. 

Pink Floyd - Antiques, A Rare Collection of Oddities (1967-1971) [2015]     This is a bootleg of early Pink Floyd songs and includes the tracks Scream Thy Last Scream (Studio outtake) and Vegetable Man.  (Studio outtake). Track 3 has a CBC Radio story/interview with Syd Barrett, Roger Waters and Nick Mason with unreleased "Astronomy Domine".

Pink Floyd - A Nice Pair [1973]      Why the American version of this compilation of the group's highly esteemed first two LPs merits a relatively rating requires some explanation. The American version of A Nice Pair is a classic example of a good idea gone bad through the ineptitude of the people actually carrying it out. In the wake of the mega-hit status achieved earlier in 1973 by Dark Side of the Moon, executives at Capitol Records, in tandem with their counterparts in other countries, decided to remarket the group's earlier catalog; in America, this meant reissuing their first two LPs, Piper at the Gates of Dawn (originally issued stateside as Pink Floyd, in edited form) and A Saucerful of Secrets, both of which originally appeared on the Capitol subsidiary label Tower and were, by then, out of print. The result was a double LP called A Nice Pair, which was also put out in England -- which was odd, since both original albums were still readily in print on that side of the Atlantic. At least in England they got it right, releasing a straight compilation of the two original albums' contents. In America, however, the geniuses at Capitol had to add tracks in order to make the first platter, containing Piper at the Gates of Dawn, complete -- but instead of adding the original studio version of "Astronomy Domine," they took the very different live version from two years later off of the Ummagumma album and slapped it on, chopping off the applause at the end. The result was ludicrous, as well as frustrating to the most serious members of a vast legion of new American fans acquired in the wake of Dark Side of the Moon, who discovered that they still had to buy an imported LP to fill in their early history of the group or to absorb the way in which the band presented themselves in the opening minutes of their first LP. What made it worse was that it would have been no more expensive to get it right than it was to get it wrong -- they simply needed someone handling the matter (which was hardly rocket science) who knew what he was doing. Otherwise, the most notable element of A Nice Pair was its outer jacket by Hipgnosis, which was made up of 18 different images, one of which was a substitute for a recalcitrant Floyd Patterson, who wanted 5,000 dollars for the use of an image of him tinted pink on the cover; thus, the boxer, in a manner similar to that of Leo Gorcey on the Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band cover, aced himself out of a chance at footnote-level immortality in the rock music firmament. The cover was also censored in the U.S.A., a sticker covering a pair of female breasts and other, minor problems entailed with some of the images on various fronts. Otherwise, the American version of the album is just a well-meaning but unnecessarily flawed effort at exploiting the band's history. (AllMusic Review by Bruce Eder)

Pink Floyd - The Early Years- 1967-1972  Creation [2016]      A double-disc distillation of the massive box The Early Years 1965-1972, The Early Years 1967-1972 condenses that 28-disc set into a 27-track compilation. Naturally, most of the real rarities remain exiled to the big box, but that's fair: only the diehards will recognize the importance of Floyd's collaboration with artist John Latham. Instead, The Early Years 1967-1972 tells the same tale as The Early Years 1967-1972 but in an easily digestible form. The double-disc relies relatively heavily on familiar songs -- it opens with "Arnold Layne" and "See Emily Play," perhaps the two best-known Syd Barrett songs, and finds space for "Careful with That Axe, Eugene" and "Free Four" -- but what distinguishes 1967-1972 is that it's the first early Floyd compilation to trace their journey from Barrett's warped psychedelia to the majestic art rock of the early '70s. Some essential songs are missing -- this doesn't sample the albums, after all, so songs as varied as "Astronomy Domine," "Let There Be More Light," and "One of These Days" are all absent -- but the repetition of "Careful with That Axe, Eugene" and "Embryo" illustrates how the band rapidly gained confidence and ambition, which is essentially the story of this compilation and its parent set. Certainly, the details of the box are missed, but on its own terms, The Early Years 1967-1972 is absorbing: it illustrates how Pink Floyd became Pink Floyd.

Pink Floyd - On Thin Ice, 1965-1985 [2020] MP4

"On Thin Ice" is a fan made documentary by Psych For The Children Productions. It mainly focuses on the early years of the band, during their psychedelic phase but also ventures into to other key moments of Pink Floyd's story. The documentary has been edited, produced and partially narrated by Dahli Thomson, talking about this time of the group when it was composed of Syd Barrett, Roger Waters, Nick Mason and Richard Wright, still without David Gilmour.  He also talks about everything that happened with Pink Floyd from 1965 to 1985, in 'On Thin Ice', you see unpublished interviews and difficult performances. You will find very intimate moments of the band such as the formation of Pink Floyd, the origin of the name (based on the blues musicians Pink Anderson and Floyd Council). Anecdotes of how the 'BBC' chain refused to broadcast 'Arnold Layne', and when material and instruments were stolen during the 'Ummagumma' tour.  And of course he talks about Syd Barret, his health problems and his solo career, for Pink Floyd lovers it is a document that cannot be missed. This document surpasses many of the other Pink Floyd documentaries. If you are a fan of Pink Floyd you cannot miss this documentary...

VA - Hammond Organ Instrumentals (A Butterboy Compilation) CD1+CD2



VA - Hammond Organ Instrumentals (A Butterboy Compilation) CD1+CD2

The Hammond organ is an electric organ invented by Laurens Hammond and John M. Hanert and first manufactured in 1935. Multiple models have been produced, most of which use sliding drawbars to vary sounds. Until 1975, Hammond organs generated sound by creating an electric current from rotating a metal tone-wheel near an electromagnetic pickup, and then strengthening the signal with an amplifier to drive a speaker cabinet. The organ is commonly used with the Leslie speaker.

Here are 51 Instrumental Rock, Jazz and Soul tracks that typify the use of Hammond organs. It's a great sound that holds your attention as the other instruments add their flavour.
