Dan Penn - Close To Me: More Fame Recordings (CD)
15,95 € *
zzgl. 3,99 € Versand

(2016/Ace) 24 tracks. ? The sequel to their acclaimed 2014 release ´The Fame Recordings´, Ace presents now ´Close To Me: More Fame Recordings´, comprising another two dozen nuggets featuring the unmistakeable voice of songsmith extraordinaire, Dan Penn. As with the previous volume, all the tracks were recorded from 1963 to 1966, when a prolific and driven Penn spent countless days and nights at Rick Hall´s FAME Studios in Muscle Shoals honing his writing and recording skills in the company of collaborators such as Donnie Fritts, Marlin Greene and his longtime cohort, Spooner Oldham. The accompaniment features crack Fame sessioneers David Briggs, Junior Lowe, Roger Hawkins, Jimmy Johnson and others. Penn issued a handful of singles in this period in a half-hearted attempt at a solo career, two are featured here, including the title cut. Otherwise the contents of ´Close To Me: More Fame Recordings´ are previously unreleased. They provide another treasure trove of Penn the writer and Penn the song-stylist, with compelling, impassioned performances throughout. While the songs ´Without A Woman,´ ´Lovely Ladies´ and ´She Ain´t Gonna Do Right´ are familiar to southern soul fans through the interpretation of others, Dan´s personal treatment of his newly-minted creations casts fresh light on the material and his artistry. There are also many more obscure entries from the Penn songbook, including several tunes like the grooving ´Standing In The Way Of A Good Thing´ or the impassioned ´It Hurts´ that were never covered. Detailed liner notes with extensive commentary from Penn himself complete the package, along with some rare illustrations. ´Close To Me: More Fame Recordings´ is further evidence that nobody sings Dan Penn like Dan Penn.

Various - Raging Harlem Hit Parade Vol.2 (CD)

(Relic) 25 tracks (71:44) - When Bobby Robinson was asked to accept Elmore James´s posthumous ´´influ-ence´´ award in the 1992 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame ceremony, he finally received a measure of the recognition he has long deserved. There, standing before a precious few of his longtime record industry peers (and a fawning crowd of the pretenders, ´´critics,´´ latecomers, sycophants, and overpaid, ignorant louts who probably couldn´t name one record Robinson had produced, but who gather together yearly to pay homage to themselves), Robinson recounted some high points in his long career. Our own CD tribute to Bobby, ´´Raging Harlem Hit Parade´´ (Relic CD #7009) was so well-received that Relic Records and Walter Devenne have once again dipped into Robinson´s endless treasure trove of rhythm and blues, soul, and doo-wop to present 25 more hits and misses, 13 in stereo, most for the first time. In the scant 72 or so minutes allotted on this CD, one can properly sample all the range and brilliance of Bobby Robinson´s seminal contribution to New York rhythm and blues from the early fifties to the late sixties. Rather extensive documentation on Bobby Robinson´s rich career as a producer, songwriter, record manufacturer and retailer is readily available elsewhere. Art Turco conducted several pioneering interviews with Robinson in the seventies (later published in his Record Exchanger magazine.) British writer John Broven expanded his own conversations with Bobby into two excellent long articles in Juke Blues magazine. Leo Sacks has provided a generally accurate overview based on a recent interview with Robinson in the 1992 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame program booklet (available at your nearest ´´memorabilia´´ clip joint for maybe a hundred bucks or more . . .) And, exhaustive liner notes and annotation to Relic CDs and LPs have filled in the stories of such important Robinson-produced artists as Elmore James, Gladys Knight and the Pips, Wilbert Harrison, Earl Lewis and the Channels, Lewis Lymon and the Teenchords, Jackie and the Starlites, Lee Dorsey, and the myriad of other vocal groups which appeared on Robinson´s many labels. While Bobby Robinson never was able to build a musical empire to rival that of a Berry Gordy or Syd Nathan, he did manage to record an astonishing range of R&B performers in the twenty year period from the inception of Robin Records in the late fall of 1951 to the end of the soul era in the early seventies. He even once borrowed Little Richard´s band, the Upsetters, for one memorable 45, ´´Jaywalkin´,´´ heard on this CD. Ronnie Erwin, December 1992 ( excerpts from the liner notes)

ggf. zzgl. Versand

5-CD box (LP-size) with 85-page hardcover book, 150 tracks. Playing time approx. 395 mns. Hank Ballard and The Midnighters were the first professional vocal group young James Brown ever witnessed in person. He vowed one day soon he´d be onstage doing the very same thing. Our retrospective contains everything the Rock ´n´ Roll Hall of Famer and his vocal group cut for the Federal and King labels from 1954 to 1962! Five jam-packed discs include unissued gems, alternate takes, unreissued rarities, and a demo version of The Twist as well as the classic hit! It´s also featuring all the original hit versions, and comes with comprehensive liner notes from Bill Dahl!, Long before The Temptations , Four Tops , and Spinners made Detroit ground zero for soulful male vocal groups, the city spawned Hank Ballard & The Midnighters, the Motor City´s first nationally successful R&B group. Though Hank Ballard could belt the blues with livewire intensity (and does here), Hank Ballard´s group was primarily concerned with rocking the house. They were one of the first vocal groups to record with their own band, initially led by blistering Houston guitarist Cal Green, whose solos are frequently mind-boggling., Never has the recorded legacy of the late Rock ´n´ Roll Hall of Famer been treated with such loving care and respect, and never have he and his group sounded better!

• 32 Klassiker von Fats Domino aus seinem umfangreichen Imperial-Katalog. • Einige seiner größten Hits sind an Bord, darunter Blueberry Hill und Blue Monday. • Eine Fülle weniger bekannter jedoch herausragender Tracks, ebenfalls aus der ‚klasssichen’ Periode von Fats. • Mitglieder in den Studiobands von ihm waren u.a. die New Orleans-Größen Herbert Hardesty, Lee Allen, Earl Palmer und sein A&R-Mann Dave Bartholomew. • Ausführliche Linernotes von Bill Dahl Fats Domino war Gründungsmitglied der Rock and Roll Hall of Fame – zu Recht und weil er es verstand, Konzertsäle auf der ganzen Welt zu rocken, wie nur eine Handvoll seiner Kollegen der ersten Generation es vermochten. Mit seinem entzückenden kreolischen Akzent, seiner doppelhändigen Klaviertechnik und seiner mächtigen, bläsergetriebenen Band, die wie eine gut geölte Maschine läuft und auf einen Second-Line-Beat abgestimmt ist, verkörpert der ’Fat Man’ den glühenden Sound des Rhythmus & Blues aus New Orleans wie kein anderer in den 1950er Jahren und darüber hinaus, Aber es gab noch eine andere Seite von Fats, einen bluesigeren, nachdenklicheren Ansatz, der in dieser 31 Songs umfassenden Zusammenstellung, die sich über die Jahre 1952-1961 erstreckt, ausführlich beleuchtet wird. Einige seiner Topseller für Lew Chudds Imperial Records sind an Bord - Blueberry Hill, Poor Me, Don´t Blame It On Me, Blue Monday - aber Sie werden auch eine Fülle von weniger bekannten Perlen finden, welche die Magie der Crescent City unterstreichen, die Fats und sein Kooperationspartner - Trompeter/Bandleader/Produzent Dave Bartholomew - bei jeder Session beschworen haben. Die Rhythmen mögen etwas zurückhaltender und Dominos Gesang etwas wärmer und weicher sein, aber sein Markenzeichen ’Big Easy Charme’ gibt es hier im Überfluss.

(Ace Records) 25 tracks - Tolle Zusammenstellung ergänzt durch drei Instrumentals von den Hatch- Orchestern. Ausführlichste Liner-Notes im 32-seitigen Booklet - Dies ist die neueste Version unserer Songwriter-Serie. Der Komponist von Dutzenden von Hits und vielen unvergesslichen Fernsehthemen wurde 2013 in die Songwriters Hall of Fame aufgenommen. Bevor er bei der mit Stars besetzten New Yorker Zeremonie ausgezeichnet wurde, ging er auf die Bühne, um einige seiner bekanntesten Lieder am Klavier aufzuführen, und schloss mit der Einführung von Überraschungsgast Petula Clark, die ´´Downtown´´ sang. ´´Es scheint, als hätte ich Tony schon immer gekannt´´, schreibt Petula im CD-Booklet. ´´Tatsächlich trafen wir uns in den frühen 60ern, ein paar Jahre vor Downtown´´, dem Song, der unser beider Leben für immer veränderte. Er schrieb noch so viele weitere großartige Songs - natürlich nicht nur für mich. Mit Tony im Studio in London, New York oder Los Angeles zu sein, war immer spannend. Seine Beherrschung des Orchesters, die Art und Weise, wie er diese wunderbaren Melodien konstruierte und das Gefühl der Freude, wie ich sie sang, machten die Sessions so unvergesslich. Natürlich hatten wir auch viel Spaß! ´´Ich werde immer in Ehrfurcht vor Tonys einzigartigem Talent sein.´´ Bereits ein etablierter Hitmaker in Großbritannien und Frankreich, mit´Downtown´ Tony´s Ruf über den Atlantik verbreitet. Während der 60er Jahre war er beim britischen Label Pye unter Vertrag, der Quelle von über der Hälfte der Tracks hier, aber seine Songs wurden auch von vielen amerikanischen Künstlern aufgenommen. I Know A Place´ ist einer von mehreren zeitgenössischen Hits, die Sarah Vaughan auf ihrem Album ´´Pop Artistry´´ gesungen hat. Das Lied wurde auch von Sammy Davis Jr. aufgenommen, ein Zeichen dafür, wie populär Tony´s Nummern wurden, was früher als legitime Interpreten bezeichnet wurde. Andererseits ist das Petula Clark Liederbuch nicht die offensichtlichste Quelle für junge Rockbands, aber dort fanden die Remains den Leadtrack auf ihrem gleichnamigen Album´Heart´. Aber nicht alle von Tonys besten Kompositionen gingen an Petula. Viele waren für Jackie Trent reserviert, der die Texte für 10 der Songs dieser Sammlung schrieb. Darunter auch´If You Ever Leave Me´, das Jackie 1966 als Single veröffentlichte und Jack Jones zwei Jahre später als Titeltrack eines Albums aufnahm. Das bebilderte 32-seitige Booklet enthält eine Biographie mit 5000 Wörtern und einen 3000 Wörtern umfassenden Track-Kommentar, der die Geschichten hinter vielen der Songs in Tonys eigenen Worten enthält, einschließlich dieses Berichts darüber, wie er dazu kam, Joanna´´ für Scott Walker zu schreiben: Mike Sarne fragte mich, ob ich einen Titelsong für einen Film schreiben möchte, für den er engagiert wurde. Ich habe die Melodie geschrieben und Jackie und ich haben an den Worten mitgearbeitet. Mike fand es richtig für den Film und stimmte zu, dass ich ihn Scott zur Aufnahme vorlegen durfte. Scott liebte den Song und sein Aufnahmeleiter Johnny Franz auch. Scott fragte, ob er einige der Texte ändern könnte. Seine Änderungen waren ausgezeichnet, aber er lehnte es ab, einen Co-Autor zu akzeptieren, obwohl wir es vorgeschlagen hatten. Er nahm den Song mit einem wunderbaren Peter Knight Arrangement auf und man konnte Scotts Einfluss durchweg spüren. Die Platte wurde Mike Sarne und dem Produzenten des Films überreicht. Alle liebten es. Dann bestand 20th Century Fox darauf, dass sie, als sie den Film finanzierten, den Komponisten wählen mussten, und es musste Rod McKuen sein, dem sie im Rahmen eines früheren Deals viel Geld bezahlt hatten. Ich war wütend und hatte die Aufgabe, das Management von Scott und Philips Records anzurufen, um ihnen die schlechte Nachricht zu überbringen. Zu meiner Erleichterung waren alle wunderbar. Sie sagten:´Scheiß auf die Filmgesellschaft. Wir lieben Scotts Platte. Wir werden es sowieso veröffentlichen, wenn der Film rauskommt.´´´ Tony hat sich auch als eigenständiger Aufnahmekünstler hervorgetan. Im Jahr 2001 fand er sich wieder in den Charts wieder, als der Titeltrack seines ´´Sounds Of The 70s´´-Albums vom finnischen Outfit Pepe Deluxé gesampelt und als ´´Before You Leave´´ überarbeitet wurde, der in der Fernsehwerbekampagne von Levi´s Engineered Jeans bekannt wurde.

Johnny Cash - Johnny Cash Sings The Songs That ...
17,95 € *
zzgl. 3,99 € Versand

(2014/Doxy) 12 tracks - Reproduction of the original 1958 ´Sun´ LP album Even as a little boy, Johnny Cash had a feeling he was going to be famous one day. It wasn´t the kind of premonition he could go about telling people. They´d have thought dreams of fame and riches pretty far removed from the Cash´s barely-productive 40-acre cotton farm in Arkansas. Especially sincc Johnny had no idea of how he was going to make his mark. Johnny left the farm to go into the Air Force — and in his travels hc acquired first, a wife — and secondly, a guitar. Assigned to Germany and forced to leave his wife behind, Johnny found a faithful companion in his guitar. The boys in his barracks seemed to like his pickin´ and singin´ — and gradually the plan for a career began to take shape. He would be a singer — a country singer. When he got back from service, Johnny was not so modest about his plans for the future. He let his Memphis friends know he was going to be a singer — a good singer, a famous singer — a singer who would revolutionize country music. No matter how long it took — he was determined! As it happened, Lady Luck inclined her face toward Johnny almost immediately. His releases on the Sun label were instantly acclaimed, and in 1956, one year after Johnny Cad, launched his recording career, he was named the most promising country and western artist of the year in four separate polls. After the success of ´I Walk the Line´ as a simultaneous C & W and popular hit, it was indicated the course Johnny´s career should take. Though always identifying himself as a singer for the country fans — a favorite entertainer on the Grand Ole Opry — Johnny Cash with ´Ballad of a Teen-Age Queen´ came to be a top selling artist in the pop recording field. Almost reluctantly, Johnny evolved a pop-country style in arrangement and instrumentation, evident in such hits as ´Guess Things Happen That Way´ and ´The Ways of a Woman in Love´ to supply the demand for Cash records by fans of both types of music. It is ironic that Johnny Cash caused more of a revolution in pop music than in country music, as was his big aim, by being one of the first C & W artists exposed on national ´general entertainment´ ´TV shows; and the first C & W artist to capture the LP market with one great release (Sun 1220). Johnny Cash — in his voice, looks and demeanor — carries a certain aura of ´specialness´. He is a very dramatic figure — tall, muscular, with blue-black hair. He looks the part of a folk singer — a 20th century wandering minstrel. And his fatalistic style, both in composing and singing, has a quality of monotone, but of ´emotional monotone´ that defies analysis, but which is genuinely powerful. Johnny Cash is one of those persons endowed with an exceptional talent which had to express itself. And being expressed, his talent has been uniquely recognized and applauded by many loyal fans, who will enjoy this reminiscent album of the songs which to date are landmarks in the career of the one and only Johnny Cash. --- Original album liner notes

(Mountain Fever Records) 11 tracks - 6 panel digisleeve with 12 page booklet of notes, photos and all lyrics. - WILLIS, Virginia —Mountain Fever Records is proud to announce the release of a star-studded concept album celebrating the life and spirit of Country Music Hall of Fame member Mac Wiseman. I Sang The Song (Life Of The Voice With A Heart) is available today. The first single, ´Going Back to Bristol,´ featuring the International Bluegrass Music Association’s 2015 Male Vocalist of the Year Shawn Camp, was released November 2016 and reached #1 on Bluegrass Today’s Top 20 Songs December 23rd. What began as a casual weekly visit among friends quickly morphed into an unprecedented album project. Over nine weeks, Country and Bluegrass Hall of Famer Mac Wiseman met with Peter Cooper and Thomm Jutz, sharing intimate details of his 91 years, and of his journey from Virginia boy to American roots music icon. That journey is the subject of I Sang The Song, the joyful and poignant album that springs from Mac’s storytelling sessions. In liner notes, Cooper writes, ´The stories would have been remarkable coming from anyone. But coming from Mac Wiseman, an acknowledged master of American roots music who earned the nickname ‘The Voice with a Heart,’ the stories began to sound like songs. Thomm Jutz and I sat in small chairs that faced the easy chair, situated beneath a photograph of Pleasant Hill Church of the Brethren, Mac’s childhood place of worship. We wrote down the stories, and found them rich with melody and rhyme.´ To begin the recording process, producers Cooper and Jutz assembled an all-star band of musicians including mandolinist Sierra Hull and multi-instrumentalist Justin Moses—both also lent vocal talents—and bassist Mark Fain. Further, featured performers were carefully chosen based not only on artistic mastery, but also reverence for the album’s subject, Mac Wiseman. The result is a collection of perfect performances by John Prine, Jim Lauderdale, Shawn Camp, Junior Sisk, Alison Krauss, Andrea Zonn, Ronnie Bowman, Sonya Isaacs Yeary, Becky Isaacs Bowman, Buddy Melton, and Milan Miller, with special vocal appearances by Mac Wiseman. Cooper says, ´Everyone who sings on this album understands the greatness of Mac Wiseman and the responsibility inherent in voicing Mac’s story and interpreting Mac’s words. These artists approached the songs with joyful reverence that is palpable to anyone who listens.´
