The Tornados - Telstar: The Complete Tornados 1962-1966 (2CD) + Scans

Posted: 21 Oct 2020 01:07 PM PDT

One of the saddest stories in rock & roll history surrounds the Tornados,
an instrumental group from Britain. Although there were other groups with
the same name (see listing for their surf-band American counterparts), this
batch of Tornados were the creation of British producer Joe Meek.
Meek was England's first independent producer, being equal parts Thomas
Edison, Phil Spector, and Ed Wood. An inveterate tinkerer, he designed his
own compression units and microphone pre-amps, giving his productions their
own distinct sound. Setting up a homemade studio in a three-story flat on
Holloway Road in London, Meek pioneered such recording techniques as close
miking of instruments, distortion, his aforementioned trademark
compression, loud drums fortified by percussion from pocket combs, milk
bottles, and stomping the floorboards himself. He put together the original
Tornados in late 1961 as a studio session group, its original lineup
consisting of Alan Caddy and George Bellamy on guitars, Roger LaVern on
organ, Heinz Burt on bass, and Clem Cattini on drums. After one single
flopped, Meek had the group do one of his compositions, an instrumental
called "Telstar." Utilizing willful distortion, cheap tape echo, beeping
satellite sound effects, a cheesy-sounding Clavioline (a two-octave
keyboard powered by a battery), and massive amounts of tube compression,
the resulting production sounded like nothing else at the time, or since.
It became the first number one record on the American charts by a British
rock group and ended up selling five million copies worldwide. It should
have made Meek a millionaire and the Tornados a household name. But a
French copyright infringement suit kept all royalties tied up for six
years, and the Tornados were kept from touring the United States behind
their international hit due to a contract employing them as a backup group
to U.K. pretty boy Billy Fury. By the time the dust settled, the Tornados
had gone hitless for several years, and so had Joe Meek. After numerous
personnel changes, the original members scattered to various groups, Heinz
Burt starting his own solo career and Cattini becoming a British session
mainstay of producer Shel Talmy. The copyright infringement suit was ruled
in Meek's favor six years later, a year after he had blown his face off
with a hunting rifle after murdering his landlady, ending his life in his
beloved but debt-ridden studio.

Come Here OftenThe Tornados:The first British group to top the American
charts, the Tornados are best remembered for their ethereal organ-dominated
instumental "Telstar".The band were London-based session musicians who were
assembled by the legendary, maverick producer Joe Meek in 1961 as a
deliberate challenge to The Shadows. They also worked as a backing-band for
solo singers John Leyton, Don Charles and Michael Cox.In 1962, while
working as Billy Fury's backing group, they made their first
recording "Love And Fury". That failed but the Meek-penned
follow-up "Telstar" - inspired by watching the first live television
pictures transmitted via the Telstar satellite - was an international hit.
The record was the first by a British group to top the American charts and
went on to sell five million copies worldwide.Heinz Burt left for a solo
career in 1963 but The Tornados carried on despite dwindling sales figures
until '66, when the group disbanded and the members all returned to session
work. ~ Bruce Eder, All Music Guide
The Tornados (in the U.S. they were credited as The Tornadoes) were an
English instrumental group of the 1960s who acted as in-house backing group
for many of record producer Joe Meek's productions.
The Tornados also enjoyed several chart hits in their own right, including
the US Number One "Telstar" (named after the satellite and composed by
Meek). It was the first US #1 by a British group. Since World War II only
three British records had topped the US charts: "Auf Wiederseh'n
Sweetheart" by Vera Lynn in 1952, "Stranger on the Shore" by Acker Bilk in
May of 1962, and "He's Got the Whole World in His Hands" by Laurie London
in 1958.
For a time the Tornados were considered serious rivals to The Shadows.
Their single "Globetrotter" made it to number 5 in the UK Singles Chart but
when bassist Heinz Burt left in 1963 for a solo career the group began to
fall apart. By 1965 none of the original lineup remained. Later lineups
were therefore credited as Tornados '65 and The New Tornados.
A scopitone film (an early form of music video) was made for their chart
hit "Robot" featuring members of the group walking around woodland dressed
in appropriate headgear with their guitars, flirting with various young
women and being finally arrested by policemen after lighting a campfire.
After drummer and bandleader Clem Cattini left the Tornados in 1965 he
became a successful session musician, playing on recording sessions for
other artists, and was featured in Cliff Richard's backing bands. He holds
the record for appearing the most times on UK #1 singles.
Rhythm guitarist George Bellamy is the father of Matthew Bellamy, frontman
for British rock band Muse. The introduction in "Knights Of Cydonia" by
Muse is very similar to that of "Telstar". In 1975 four of the five
original members tried an unsuccessful comeback as the Original

Fifty-five Tornados tracks on two CDs may be 53 more than most casual
listeners need, but this double-disc set justifies itself in the listening.
To most Americans, and even most Britons, the Tornados were one-hit
wonders, responsible for "Telstar" and not much else, but as this set
shows, they did come up with some cool sounds and tunes under the guidance
of producer/manager Joe Meek. "Robot" is nearly as pretty a tune
as "Telstar" (it also charted in England at No. 17), and it sounds fresh,
as something not nearly as widely heard for 36 years; "Life On Venus," the
B-side, is a very close second, almost a "son of Telstar." "Ice Cream Man"
was another British chart single, and offers the spectacle of Meek and the
Tornados applying a Bo Diddley beat to their trademark sound. Other
highlights include lots of television themes, both material for actual use
on the air and the group's covers of such as material as "Stringray"
and "Aqua Marina" from the sci-fi kids' show Stringray. The material
extends right into 1964 and the band's attempts to compete in the area of
vocal records, when it became clear that the public wasn't too interested
in instrumental rock & roll anymore. The annotation includes a beautifully
detailed essay by Chris Welch, with extensive interview material on drummer
Clem Cattini (the longest-tenured member of the Tornados) and Cattini's
recollections on each of the tracks here. In the end, there's more to the
Tornados' sound and history than most of us knew, all revealed here.Re Post

Posted: 21 Oct 2020 08:13 AM PDT

vocal- Bruce Bowles
saxophon- Bobby Fisher
vocal- Jimmy Hart
trumpet- Jimmy Johnson
bass- Pat Neal
vocal- Larry Raspberry
drum- Larry Wall

The Gentrys got their start in Memphis, TN, in 1963. The original group was
made up of seven members: vocalist Bruce Bowles, saxophonist Bobby Fisher,
vocalist Jimmy Hart, trumpet player Jimmy Johnson, bassist Pat Neal,
vocalist Larry Raspberry, and drummer Larry Wall. Their debut album, Keep
on Dancing, climbed into the Top 100 due to the success of the title track.
The group enjoyed minor success until 1966, when the band broke up.
Originally, member Jimmy Hart decided to resurrect the band in 1969, now
featuring himself on lead vocals. The band still had some minor success,
but did not last long. Raspberry would go on to start several more garage
and soul groups, while Hart became a popular wrestling character,
the "Mouth of the South," and would write music for both the WWF and WCW
wrestling organizations.

The Beatnix - it's for you (1998)

Posted: 21 Oct 2020 05:00 AM PDT

The Beatnix concept was conceived and assembled in March 1980 by founding
member Tony Dean, rhythym guitar/vocals, [now retired to full-time
management] as a live performance entity. This puts it amongst the longest
running Beatles Tribute Shows in the world. It is certainly the most
imitated Beatles Show down under and we are truly flattered.

The Beatnix show includes fully authentic musical instruments similar to
those used by The Beatles. These include very rare and valuable guitars by
Gretsch, Hofner, Rickenbacker and Gibson, Vox AC30 guitar amplifiers and a
Vox AC50 bass amplifier with a T60 bass cabinet.

The drums are identical to the ones used by Ringo, a 1960's model Ludwig
Black Oyster Pearl kit complete with Zildjian cymbals, The Beatnix have
the real vintage equipment.

This combined with a range of early period Beatle costumes and the
colourful Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band outfits give you the
complete Beatles experience. You will believe you are seeing the real

The Beatnix Show has performed extensively overseas including several
seasons in Hong Kong, Malaysia, Bangkok, New Zealand and we have even
performed for Royalty in Brunei.
Domestically they have done them all from large venues ie. ARL Grand Final
at the Sydney Olympic Stadium [with over 100,000 people] Darling Harbour
[with The Merseyside Orchestra] Sydneys' Taronga Zoo Twilight Concert
Series, The Melbourne Zoo, Vodaphone Stadium, Sydney Opera House, The Gove
Peninsular Festival, Alice Springs Race week, Gold Coast Wintersun Festival
to smaller more intimate venues ie. The Basement, numerous weddings and
birthday parties including shows on Sydney Harbour cruise boats and even a
party for 50 people in a back garden setting in Surry Hills.

There have also been many television performances including Hey Hey Its'
Saturday, The Midday Show, Good Morning Australia, The Don Lane Show, Ernie
and Denise, Simon Townsends' Wonderworld, Donnie Sutherlands' Sounds, and
appearances at Beatle Festivals in Adelaide, Melbourne, Auckland and four
Beatlefests in Sydney.

The Beatnix have also been professionally recorded on the noteable "It's
for you" lost Beatles tracks album, "Stairways to Heaven" with the "Money
or the Gun" album and numerous T.V. and radio commercials including The
Soothers ad, Arnetts Shapes, Browns Choc and you may have seen the "Hertz"
ad with the guys [complete with bass drum] in the print media.

archivists who gathered all 19 Lennon/McCartney compositions that were
given to other artists (like P.J. Proby, Cilla Black, Billy J. Kramer & the
Dakotas, Peter & Gordon, etc.) and never recorded for Beatles albums. The
Beatnix perform these songs faithfully, in a strongly Beatlesque style that
crosses the line from influence into imitation. But that's the point of the
album — giving power-pop fans a chance to hear what these songs probably
would have sounded like had the Beatles kept them — and in that sense, it
accomplishes exactly what it set out to do.

21 - Stairway to Heaven

The Liverpool Echo“Power pop has never sounded so powerful! When former
Mandrake Paddlesteamer mainstays Brian Engel and Martin Briley convened as
Liverpool Echo in 1973, the Beatles had been in the grave for just three
years, and the world still desperately wanted them back -- so desperately
that, with a band name borrowed bodily from an old Merseybeat-era
newspaper, what could any record company do, but lift a "Fabs"-headlined
copy of the paper for an album cover? But "Beatles Come Home So Quietly"
really wasn't the most appropriate banner for an LP jacket, all the more so
since, once you hit the vinyl, the spirit of the "Moptops" hung so heavily
over the music that it screamed out for attention. Of course, it was true
that any early-'70s band that was capable of melding melody with
studio-borne creativity would inevitably be tarred "the new Beatles" (as
Badfinger and 10cc would readily testify); it is also true that all such
comparisons were then hopelessly devalued by the arrival of the Rutles. But
still Liverpool Echo have an uncanny grasp of the Merseybeat sound circa
1963 and 64, spliced with a healthy hint of the Hollies, and that was more
than enough to raise high hopes for the album.

Покинув ряды Jethro Tull, Гленн Корник решил идти собственным путем и начал
сочинять материал, нисколько не похожий на предшествующую группу. Однако, в
одиночку басисту трудиться тоже не хотелось, и на протяжении трех месяцев
он попутно занимался кастингом в свой новый проект, получивший название
Wild Turkey. В конечном итоге место в команде получили вокалист Gary
Pickford-Hopkins, барабанщик John Pugwash Weathers, лидер-гитарист Graham
Williams и ритм-гитарист Jon Blackmore. Следуя тогдашней моде, музыканты
арендовали уединенную ферму и устроили там что-то вроде репетиционной базы
пополам с коммуной. Однако, не успело дело дойти до концертов, как в
составе произошли две замены, и ушедшие Weathers и Williams уступили места
Jeff Jones и Alan Tweke Lewis. Следующие несколько месяцев прошли в
скитаниях по различным клубам и колледжам, где Wild Turkey потихоньку
сколачивали свою фан-базу. В основном группа играла прямолинейные,
достаточно жесткие рокешники, но из-за тяги Хопкинса и Блэкмора к фолку в
ее сет-листах попадались и акустические номера. В 1971 году под присмотром
продюсеров Rodger Bain и Tom Allom в лондонской студии Olympic команда
испекла первый виниловый блин. И хотя альбом не вывел коллектив в высший
рок-эшелон, он имел средний успех, как в Англии, так и в Америке. В
поддержку Battle Hymn коллектив много гастролировал по обе стороны
Атлантики, зачастую сопровождая Black Sabbath.

После второго альбома произошла серия изменений в составе группы, наиболее
значительное присоединился Берни Марсден, и группа продолжила интенсивно
гастролировать. Несмотря на умеренный успех, этот состав не смог выпустить
третий альбом и, в конце концов, распался в 1974 году. В 1996 году Корник
уговорил бывших коллег тряхнуть стариной и собраться снова. Результатом
реюниона стал альбом Stealer Of Years В 2006 году вышел ещё один альбом
(четвёртый) You And Me In The Jungle.

The Yardbirds Roger The Engineer 1966 (US)

Posted: 19 Oct 2020 10:25 AM PDT

Roger the Engineer (originally released in the UK as Yardbirds and in the
US, Germany, France and Italy as Over Under Sideways Down) is the only UK
studio album by English rock band the Yardbirds. Recorded and released in
1966, it is also the only Yardbirds album with guitarist Jeff Beck on all
tracks and contains all original material. It was produced by bassist Paul
Samwell-Smith and manager Simon Napier-Bell.
Although the British edition is still officially titled Yardbirds by
authoritative chart sources, such as Official Charts Company, it has since
been referred to, first colloquially, then semi-officially, as Roger the
Engineer, a title stemming from the cover drawing of the record's audio
engineer Roger Cameron by band member Chris Dreja.
It is the only Yardbirds album to appear in the UK Albums Chart, where it
reached number 20. In the US, it reached number 52 on the Billboard 200
album chart. The album's best-known song, "Over Under Sideways Down", was
released as single in May 1966, two months before the album.
The album is included in Robert Dimery's 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before
You Die. In 2012, the album was ranked number 350 on Rolling Stone's list
of the 500 greatest albums of all time.
The single "Over Under Sideways Down", along with the B-side "Jeff's
Boogie", was recorded at Advision Studios in London on 19–20 April 1966.
The rest of the album was recorded from 31 May to 4 June 1966, also at
Advision. Paul Samwell-Smith and Simon Napier-Bell produced the album,
which was released by the Columbia Graphophone Company in the UK on 15 July
1966 and by Epic Records in the US on 18 July 1966.
Track listingAll songs written by Chris Dreja, Jim McCarty, Jeff Beck,
Keith Relf, and Paul Samwell-Smith (Dreja and McCarty's last names are
misspelled as "Drega" and "McCarthy" on the labels of the US album). All
songs are recorded in stereo, except where noted.

Release history
The original American versions of this album (issued with a different album
cover and titled Over Under Sideways Down after the hit song of the same
name) omitted the songs "The Nazz Are Blue" (which was sung by Jeff Beck)
and "Rack My Mind" and is mixed differently than the British editions.
Regardless, record collectors have sought out both the mono (LN 24210) and
stereo (BN 26210) versions since several tracks are featured with slight
differences in the mixes (see US album listing above). Epic's 1983 reissue
(simply titled The Yardbirds) featured the original UK album cover, the two
missing tracks, duplication of the British mixing, and two additional
tracks: the 1966 single "Happenings Ten Years Time Ago" backed with "Psycho
Daisies", both featuring Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page.

from several Sunshine Pop/Soft Rock compilations. Webster’s New Word

the JFK sixties. Three of the members (Gus Duffy, Hilton Hill and KC Lynch)
were previously in the Winds (aka the Four Winds). In 1965, Fantasy Records
released their single,Radiation Baby under the name Winds Of Notre Dame.

Первые два альбома польского вокально-инструментального ансамбля из города
Гдыня. Группа просуществовала до 1976 года, выпустив 8 лонгплеев и 24
сингла. В 1986, 1987, 1992, 2002 годах ансамбль возобновлял свою
деятельность на очень короткий промежуток времени. Например, в 1986 году
группа была возрождена для выступления на концерте «Old Rock Meeting», где
приняли участие многие родоначальники рок-музыки в Польше. А в 1992 году
Niebiesko-Czarni участвовали в концерте в Познани, который был посвящён
памяти Ады Русович.

Narada Michael Walden родился 23 апреля 1952 года в Kalamazoo (штат
Мичиган). Американский барабанщик, певец, автор песен, музыкальный
продюсер. Имя Нарада он получил в начале 70-х (в период повального
увлечения американской богемой индийской философией и медитацией) от
известного гуру Шри Чинмоя. На санскрите это имя означает человек или
мужчина, такое же имя носил и известный ведический странствующий мудрец
(игравший заметную роль в самых ранних индуистских текстах, особенно в
Рамаяна и Бхагавата пурана, одной из восемнадцати основных Пуран),
обладавший способностью посещать далёкие миры и иные реальности. Подписав
контракт с Atlantic Records, Narada Michael Walden выпустил свой дебютным
альбом Garden Of Love Light, композиция Delightful с которого попала на 81
место в R&B чарте весной 1977 года В конце 1985 года Уолден открыл Tarpan
Studios, современную студию звукозаписи, расположенную в пригороде
Сан-Франциско За сорок с лишним лет Narada Michael Walden принял участие в
сотнях музыкальных проектов, выступая в роли барабанщика, певца,
композитора и музыкального продюсера. Десятки альбомов и синглов, к
созданию которых он приложил свою руку, стали золотыми и платиновыми.

The Yardbirds - For Your Love 1964-66 (Russian Disc)

Posted: 17 Oct 2020 01:10 PM PDT

Back in 1965, this album seemed like a real mess, which was understandable,
because For Your Love wasn't a "real" album, in the sense that the
Yardbirds ever assembled an LP of that name or content. Rather, it was the
response of their American label, Epic, to the band's achieving a number
six single with the title track, with manager Giorgio Gomelsky selecting
the cuts. The quasi-progressive "For Your Love," dominated by guest artist
Brian Auger's harpsichord, is juxtaposed with hard-rocking blues-based
numbers, almost all of which featured departed lead guitarist Eric Clapton
(who is mentioned nowhere on the LP), with current lead guitarist Jeff Beck
on just three tracks. The Clapton cuts, although primitive next to the
material he was soon to cut with John Mayall, have an intensity that's
still riveting to hear four decades later, and was some of the best
blues-based rock & roll of its era. The three Beck sides show where the
band was really heading, beyond the immediate success of "For Your Love"
-- "I'm Not Talking" and "I Ain't Done Wrong" were hard, loud, blazing
showcases for Beck's concise blues playing, while "My Girl Sloopy" was the
first extended jam to emerge on record from a band on the British blues
scene; the source material isn't ideal, but Beck and company make their
point in an era where bands were seldom allowed to go more than four
minutes on even an album track -- these boys could play and make it count.

Russian Disc is the label of the company МТПП «Русский диск».It appears
from 1989 on sleeves of Мелодия records and/or soon on the label itself.
Either it is presented on label as "Russian Disc" or on some cases also in
cyrillic "Русский Диск".
Though the label is legal, some releases from early 1990s are not
authorised by the artist or copyright holder (they usually have "Архивные
записи ..." printed one the back sleeve) and should be tagged as 'partially
unofficial'.Thanks Pavel***

The Legends — Milwaukee's Legends, that is — have become precisely that in
their hometown and neighboring parts of Wisconsin, and with good reason.
They started out in 1961, or possibly a little earlier, playing a tough
brand of rockabilly-flavored rock & roll, and when the British Invasion hit
three years later, they were able to switch gears without losing a beat, to
a slightly heavier guitar sound and three-part harmony singing that
emulated the work of the Beatles and, even more so, the Searchers. Of
course, as blessed as they were musically, they were cursed with a name
that was as ubiquitous as it was cool, and forced them into awkward shifts
and additions in their billings when they played certain parts of the
country in competition with local talent with ...

[FLAC] PREMIATA FORNERIA MARCONI - Ultrasonic Studios - 1974

Posted: 17 Oct 2020 12:09 PM PDT

No final dos anos 60, a Itália experimentou uma onda de novas ideias e
ideais que coincidiram com o nascimento da nova era musical. Não seria
exagero afirmar que a década de 70 foi um divisor de águas na história do
país. Embora essa década seja lembrado como os anos do "boom econômico",
foi apenas na década seguinte que a Itália fez a longa e difícil mudança de
um país tradicional, relativamente pobre para uma sociedade ocidental
totalmente desenvolvida.
Uma olhada em qualquer cronograma para a Itália dos anos 70 mostrará uma
incrível concentração de eventos que mudaram a estrutura da sociedade
italiana de forma irrevogável: leis e atos foram aprovados afetando os
direitos dos trabalhadores, família e divórcio, direitos das mulheres e
isenções culturais. Vale lembrar que se tratava de um país onde a presença
física da Igreja Católica sempre foi impossível de ignorar, principalmente
por causa de sua intervenção aberta nos assuntos políticos gerando a
introdução a mudanças que afetara toda uma nação.
Os tempos turbulentos foram fundamentais a inúmeros músicos em busca de
algo novo - alguma forma de comparar o clima político por meio da mídia
artística - variando de estudantes de conservatório altamente aplicados a
cantores e compositores locais, esse espírito conseguiu cativar um país
inteiro em poucos anos. Os jovens estavam inquietos, explodindo em um
desejo ardente de mudar a atmosfera sóbria e sufocante da sociedade
italiana a partir de um de seus símbolos, sua venerável e brilhante
tradição musical. A maioria dos músicos tinha tendências mais ou menos
fortes para a esquerda, enquanto os poucos exemplos de bandas abertamente
de direita nunca conseguiram sair da obscuridade ou ganhar mais do que
seguidores estritamente cult. Influências psicodélicas e a incorporação da
música erudita podem ter sido os mesmos degraus usados ​​pela maioria das
outras cenas progressivas ao redor do globo durante o mesmo período, mas
mesmo neste estágio embrionário havia um sopro de outra coisa no ar. No
final dos anos 60, quando a cena beat já estava em declínio, várias bandas
se formaram, algumas delas lançando singles (ou mesmo álbuns) que
preenchiam a lacuna entre a batida, a música italiana convencional de fácil
audição (Musica Leggera) e a novas influências vindas da Grã-Bretanha.
Um dos mais interessantes nomes vindos dessa terra foi a Premiata Forneria
Marconi (PFM), banda progressiva de sucesso a qual alcançou maior
notoriedade pelo mundo. Seu embrião foi a banda I Queli que se juntou a um
dos maiores instrumentistas italianos, Mauro Pagani.
Seu primeiro e brilhante álbum (lançado apenas na Itália) foi Storia di
minuto (1972), que foi um sucesso imediato, seguido rapidamente por Per un
Amico (1972), que expandiu sua influência para fora da Itália e por toda
Nessa época, durante uma turnê, Greg Lake os ouviu e imediatamente os
contratou para sua nova gravadora, a Manticore Records. Por causa dessa
conexão, seu próximo álbum, Photos of Ghosts (1973) foi lançado em todo o
mundo (com versões regravadas principalmente de músicas de seus álbuns
anteriores) e, pela primeira vez, com letras em inglês (em uma tentativa de
alcançar uma maior público). Curiosamente, em vez de apenas traduzir suas
letras em italiano para o inglês, todas as novas letras em inglês foram
escritas nada menos por Pete Sinfield, uma das cabeças pensantes do núcleo
King Crimson.
O álbum foi vendido em países de todo o mundo, incluindo os EUA. Eles
seguiram esse sucesso com outro álbum italiano (L'isola di niente) seguido
por uma versão em inglês, The World Became the World (1974), e então sua
primeira turnê pelo os Estados Unidos.
Os shows gravados dessa turnê se tornaram a base para um álbum ao vivo,
Cook (1975). A banda também alcançou seu maior público naquele país quando
apareceu no programa de TV The Midnight Special no início de 1975. Para seu
próximo álbum, Chocolate Kings (1975), eles adicionaram um novo vocalista,
Bernardo Lanzetti, e um som de rock mais pesado. Jet Lag (1977) foi seu
último álbum com letras em inglês (assim como o último álbum lançado nos
EUA) e mudou-se para uma pegada mais voltada para o Fusion.
O registro a seguir, foi gravado durante a uma turnê da banda por terras
americanas para a divulgação do álbum 'The World Became the World'. A
apresntação ocorreu em 27 de Agosto de 1974 no Ultrasonic Studios,
localizado em Hempstead, NY.

Uncut - The Rolling Stones Special (PDF)

Posted: 16 Oct 2020 06:43 AM PDT

“Sometimes I feel that my whole career with The Creation, Jeff Beck and The
Faces was one long audition to join The Rolling Stones,” writes Ronnie
Wood, in his introduction to our latest Ultimate Music Guide.Sometimes, it
also feels that most every rock’n’roll musician in the world is going
through an epic audition to join this most notorious and feted of bands.
Nearly 50 years after they sauntered from West London’s R&B backwaters, the
Stones’ potency, and their imperious domination of rock’n’roll – its sound,
its culture, its etiquette, its essence – remains unchallenged.What better
subject, then, for the latest in Uncut’s series of Ultimate Music Guides?
As with our previous specials on U2, Springsteen and Lennon, we’ve raided
the NME and Melody Maker archives to reprint, in full, some extraordinarily
candid interviews: visits to the Satanic Majesties and Exile sessions; wild
summits with Keith and his entourage; even moments of candour from Mick
Jagger Esq.Over 148 pages, we’ve also taken fresh and extensive new looks
at every Stones album (yes, even Dirty Work…), surveyed their bewildering
catalogue of live albums and compilations and uncovered the most desirable
Stones rarities.A treasure trove of wisdom, outrage and beautiful
photographs, from the makers of Uncut. That’s The Rolling Stones: The
Ultimate Music Guide.EnjoyTy To Original Sharer"I hope for nothing, I fear
nothing, I am free"👍

The Tages - Extra Extra (1966)

Posted: 16 Oct 2020 04:13 AM PDT

The Tages were without a doubt, the best Swedish band of the '60s and one
of the best '60s rock acts of any sort from a non-English speaking country.
Although the group's first recordings were pretty weak Merseybeat
derivations, in the mid-'60s they developed a tough, mod-influenced sound
that echoed the Who and the Kinks and recorded quite a few originals,
making the Swedish Top Ten over a dozen times in all. More than any other
continental group, the Tages could have passed for a genuine British band,
following the U.K. acts that served as their obvious inspirations into hard
rock, Baroque pop, and blue-eyed soul. Big throughout Scandinavia, the
group actually made a determined effort to crack the English market in
1968, playing quite a few U.K. shows and releasing records there; they
failed, and disbanded at the end of the year. The Tages evolved into Blond
in the late '60s, a pop-oriented group who had an album released in the
United States.


The Wailers - Wailers Wailers Everywhere/Out of Our Tree

Posted: 16 Oct 2020 03:15 AM PDT

This is the definitive retrospective of the Wailers' mid-'60s output for
Etiquette, including not just the two albums that comprise the title of
this single-disc CD reissue, but also five non-LP bonus tracks. This was a
time that found the Wailers adjusting awkwardly to the changes wrought by
the British Invasion, placing far more emphasis on vocal numbers and
original material, with mixed results. For Wailers Wailers Everywhere,
their first LP recorded after the onset of the British Invasion, the group
members wrote most of the songs themselves. It was a change from previous
Wailers efforts, as the sound usually reflected the influences of the
Beatles and other early British Invasion stars like the Dave Clark Five, as
well as some of the harmony rock of the Beach Boys and the Four Seasons.
This was a farsighted strategy as far as career survival went, but fell
down on its shortage of good original songs. For the most part it had tepid
British Invasion-like harmony rockers, sounding very much like strained
attempts to adapt their R&B-frat rock sound to the new wave, yet without
the full chunky power of their early-'60s records. Out of Our Tree, the
Wailers' final album for Etiquette, was a somewhat confused effort. It was
torn between covers of mid-'60s hits and original material, usually in
their R&B-soaked raunchy style, though with touches of influences from
British Invasion groups and the emerging American garage rock scene.
Certainly its highlight was the title track (eventually included on the
Nuggets box set), with its grinding sub-"Satisfaction" riff. But other
original numbers on the record were frenetic yet undistinguished rewrites
of '50s-style rock & roll numbers, though "Hang Up" was a pretty fair tough
garage rocker. And there were too many covers of well-known hits -- "Hang
on Sloopy," the Beatles' "I'm Down," "Unchained Melody," "Mercy
Mercy," "Summertime" -- that neither matched better-known prior versions or
added much to them, though the screaming white-soul vocal on Hank
Ballard's "Little Sister" is pretty harrowing. If the whole album had been
on the level of "Out of Our Tree" and "Hang Up," this would be a notable
slice of wired, edgy mid-'60s garage rock, but too much of the rest
disappoints. Four of the five bonus tracks are group originals from non-LP
singles of the era, ranging from fairly taut R&B-rock originals ("You
Weren't Using Your Head") to the Beach Boys-influenced "All My Nights, All
My Days," though like much of the band's material, the rougher songs rely
too heavily on stock menacing R&B riffs. The remaining bonus track, the
Little Richard-style "Livewire," made its first appearance on a Norton
release a few years before this release.


Zakary Thaks - It's The End The Definitive Collection

Posted: 16 Oct 2020 03:01 AM PDT

Sundazed assembled a Zakary Thaks comp called Form the Habit back in 2001
that seemed definitive. After all, the Corpus Christi teenage garage
rockers released no more than six singles between 1966 and 1969 and all 12
songs were in place, along with three instrumental backing tracks, but
2015's It's the End: The Definitive Collection goes several steps further.
Not only does reissue producer Alec Palao rely on the original single mixes
but he's unearthed several forgotten masters along with three singles where
Zakary Thaks' rhythm section of bassist Rex Gregory and drummer Stan Moore
supported Mike Taylor in "Michael," the project he pursued after disbanding
fellow Texas garage rockers the Bad Seeds. These new discoveries come at
the expense of Sundazed's instrumentals but those aren't missed because
this 22-track compilation paints a much richer portrait of a group that was
one of the best unheralded American rock & roll outfits of the '60s. Zakary
Thaks weren't pioneers as much as fierce synthesizers who channeled every
upheaval of the British Invasion into wily, inventive rock & roll. Clearly,
the group was enamored of the Kinks and the Yardbirds -- their record label
was J-Beck, they covered "I Need You," one of the ravers is called "Face to
Face," and "It's the End" nods at the chromatic descending stairsteps
of "Sunny Afternoon" -- but they not only mimicked the full-throttle
three-chord rush, they appropriated a similar sense of sonic adventure and
jangly melodicism. This means they developed quickly during their nearly
four years together, a progression that's underscored by unearthed
recordings like "A Passage to India" that show how they were delving into
psychedelia. Many of these later recordings show how adept the quartet was
in navigating the shifting fashions of the late '60s -- "Mirror of
Yesterday" is excellent ornate folk-rock, "Everybody Wants to Be Somebody"
is happy, sunbleached pop -- but the dark pulsating "Green Crystal Ties"
shows that the band behind the furious "Bad Girl" and "Won't Come Back"
never quite mellowed. The fact that Zakary Thaks embodied, not influenced,
the trends of their time hardly diminishes their music. This group of
rampaging teenage Texans made passionate rock & roll that still sounds
invigorating decades later, and this is the tribute they deserve.

Трубадуры популярнейший в 60-70-х годах польский вокально-инструментальный
ансамбль. Создан в 1963 году в городе Лодзь. Дебютировали в 1965 году на
песенном фестивале в Ополе, где получили награду за дебют. Большая
популярность пришла к ним, главным образом, благодаря оригинальному
звучанию вокального квартета, молодежному саунду, модному в те годы жанру
(бит-музыка) и особой (славянской) мелодичности песен, которые легко
запоминались и сразу же становились шлягерами. Первые три альбома
Трубадуров сегодня звучат, пожалуй, достаточно архаично и интересуют в
основном коллекционеров. Но уже в первом своем альбоме Krajobrazy (Пейзажи)
музыканты записали безусловный хит на все времена – песню Znamy Się Tylko Z

Джаз-фьюжн группа Mahagon была создана в 1973 году в Праге двумя
музыкантами. Это были Petr Klapka и Jan Hála, а играли они тогда фолк. Но
уже скоро их музыкальное предпочтение изменилось в сторону фанк-рока с
элементами джаза. В 1976 году к ним присоединилась жена Петра Клапки Zdena
Adamová, бывшая вокалистка группы C&K. А два года спустя, но уже без Jan
Hála, был записан их первый из двух альбомов.
