EPIC ROCK JAMS

VA - Epic Jams CD1+CD2+CD3 (A Butterboy Compilation)                    REPOST

A jam session is a relatively informal musical event, process, or activity where musicians, typically instrumentalists, play improvised solos and vamp on tunes, songs and chord progressions. To "jam" is to improvise music without extensive preparation or predefined arrangements, except for when the group is playing well-known jazz standards or covers of existing popular songs. Original jam sessions, also 'free flow sessions', are often used by musicians to develop new material (music) and find suitable arrangements. Both styles can be used simply as a social gathering and communal practice session. Jam sessions may be based upon existing songs or forms, may be loosely based on an agreed chord progression or chart suggested by one participant, or may be wholly improvisational.

A jam band is a musical group whose live albums and concerts relate to a fan culture that began in the 1960s with the Grateful Dead, and continued with The Allman Brothers Band, and Phish which had lengthy jams at concerts. The performances of these bands typically feature extended musical improvisation ("jams") over rhythmic grooves and chord patterns, and long sets of music that can often cross genre boundaries. The contemporary jam scene has grown to encompass bands from a great diversity of musical genres including bands with electronic, folk rock, blues rock, jazz fusion, psychedelic rock, Southern rock, progressive rock, acid jazz, hip hop, hard rock, and bluegrass sounds.

While the seminal group the Grateful Dead are categorized as psychedelic rock, by the 1990s the term "jam band" was being used for groups playing a variety of rock-related genres, including blues, country music, folk music, and funk. Today the term even includes some groups completely outside rock, such as those playing world music, electronic music, progressive bluegrass, and jazz fusion. By the late 1990s, the types of jam bands had so grown that the term became quite broad. Although today the term may be used to describe nearly any cross-genre band, festival band, or improvisational band, the term retains an affinity to the fan culture inspired by the Grateful Dead and carried on by the likes of Phish.

A feature of the jam band scene is fan taping or digital recording of live concerts. While many other styles of music term fan taping as "illegal bootlegging", jam bands often allow their fans to make tapes or recordings of their live shows. Fans trade recordings and collect recordings of different live shows because improvisational jam bands play their songs differently at each performance. By the 2000s, as internet downloading of MP3 music files became common, downloading of jam band songs became an extension of the cassette taping trend. Bands are also distributing their shows online, sometimes within days or hours (Wikipedia)


For this compilation I have gathered both live and studio recording of various band and genres Jamming Out. The music is often long and rewarding to the listener who gives time to the feeling of the song. Here are 75 tracks I consider to be Epic Jams for your listening pleasure. Enjoy!

K's SUNSHINE POP SPECIAL VA - The Best of Sunshine Pop: 172 Iconic Classic Tracks that Defined the Original Sunshine Pop Era of the 60s (Super Deluxe Edition) [2022] (6 x CDs)

K's SUNSHINE POP SPECIAL     

VA - The Best of Sunshine Pop: 172 Iconic Classic Tracks that Defined the Original Sunshine Pop Era of the 60s (Super Deluxe Edition) [2022] (6 x CDs)

Quite possibly the most extensive and diverse collection of classic original 1960s sunshine pop ever compiled in one place.   Sunshine pop (originally known as soft pop) is a sub-genre of pop music that originated in Southern California in the mid-1960s. Rooted in easy listening and advertising jingles, sunshine pop acts combined nostalgic or anxious moods with "an appreciation for the beauty of the world". It largely consisted of lesser-known artists who imitated more popular groups such as the Mamas & the Papas and the 5th Dimension.

Sunshine pop enjoyed mainstream success in the latter half of the decade, with many of its top 40 hits peaking in the spring and summer of 1967, especially just before the Summer of Love. Popular acts include the Turtles, and the Association. Other groups, like the Millennium, Sagittarius, the Parade and the Yellow Balloon were less successful but gained a cult following years later with albums like Begin (Millennium, 1968) and Present Tense (Sagittarius, 1968) being sought after on the collectors’ market.  After its peak in the 1960s, the genre lingered in near-obscurity, although it enjoyed some interest among collectors of rare vinyl singles and LPs. Select albums would occasionally fetch hefty prices at online auctions or in record stores. A name was eventually given to the music, "sunshine pop", although it was rarely deployed outside of record collecting circles. In the early 1990s, a renewed interest began in Japan, where record companies started publishing compilations of long-forgotten, obscure 1960s music. This revival subsequently spread to Europe and the United States.

Compilations and box-sets by groups such as Spanky and Our Gang, The Association, The Arbors and The Love Generation have been released on CD. Among the record labels which issue sunshine pop re-releases are Revola Records in Britain and the US label Sundazed.

So, after considerable and extensive online research, plus my own recollections and memories, here is my personal compilation of what I consider to be the 172 best and most important tracks from the original sunshine pop era, including a few 'sunny' themed 60s pop hits added in for good measure!  This fully packed 6CD set contains many rare and extremely hard to find tracks, with many featured in their original 7" 45 mono single form. Only the original 1960s studio mixes are included. No later remixes, 'stereo enhanced' or live versions here!  Compiled as always using the very latest and highest quality digital remasters, with a considerable amount of tracks sourced from the original master tapes for superior sound quality and enjoyment.

Get ready to bask in 7.8 hours of beautiful 'Sunshine'!

K's 1982 SPECIAL VA - The 175 Best Singles of 1982 (Super Deluxe Edition) [2022] (9 x CD's)

K's 1982 SPECIAL

VA - The 175 Best Singles of 1982 (Super Deluxe Edition) [2022] (9 x CD's)

NEW and FULLY UPDATED! Better sounding, higher quality remasters, updated versions.  

1982 was a stellar year for music, so much so, this is the largest number of singles per year I've compiled to date: 175!!!

After extensive research into virtually every single released in the UK, USA and around the world in 1982, I've put together the absolute cream of the crop of the year. Many many tracks have been included that you just never see on officially released compilations, plus I've used the very latest digital and best sounding remasters available. I've also included quite a few hard to find and rare original 7" single versions, many released for the first time on CD as part of a number of recent super deluxe editions. The cover art features a record shop with window display posters of record sleeve art taken from 1982 featuring the biggest selling and most prominent artists of the year, and who had the biggest hits.

Hope you enjoy these 175 great tracks!

K.
