Группа из Йорка (графство Северный Йоркшир). Образовалась на руинах
соул-команды Wesley Hardin’s Shotgun Package; новое название получила от
романа Джона Пристли Улица Ангела, посвящённого так называемому феномену
психологии успеха. Лидер гитарист Clive Shepherd Медленно, но верно
добивались популярности в родном городе; одни из первых использовали на
своих концертах световые эффекты и генератор дыма. В 1968 году открывали
шоу таких исполнителей, как Geno Washington, Marmalade, Status Quo и The
Move Два сингла, выпущенные на лейбле Fontana Records, должны были
подготовить публику к выходу долгожданного альбома. И тут случилась
досадная неприятность: песни не сумели подняться до высоких мест
хит-парада, несмотря на активную раскрутку по радио. В результате музыканты
оказались на другом лейбле Bell, который обещал издать третий сингл и
почти готовую пластинку. Однако, и здесь не проявили должного интереса к
продвижению группы, к тому же начались конфликты Clive Shepherd с их
многолетним продюсером. В результате скандала отношения окончательно
испортились, и в конце 1970 года на родине, в Йорке, был дан последний
концерт. Найденные записи вышли в 2003 году на виниле (15 песен) и два года
спустя с добавлением дополнительных материалов на CD (23 песни). Все
отмечают уровень музыкантов и удивляются близорукости компаний, пошедших на
поводу у коммерческого успеха.

Dry Ice - Dry Ice 2018 (UK, Psychedelic/Hard Rock)

Posted: 20 Mar 2019 11:31 AM PDT

Исполнитель: Dry Ice

Откуда: England

Альбом: Dry Ice

Год выхода: 2018 (recorded in 1969)

Жанр: Psychedelic/Hard Rock

Формат: MP3 CBR 320

Группа из Британии, выпустившая в 1960-х только один сингл, однако
записавшая материал на целый альбом. Почти все записи были сделаны 4 мая
1969 года, но пролежали на полке до 2018 года.


Formed with the foundation of guitarist/vocalist/songwriter Paul Gardner
and drummer Terry Sullivan, Dry Ice was a UK psychedelic rock band that
went through three incarnations during 1969, the last of which managed to
record and album worth of material and a single. The single found release
in November, 1969 on IBC Records. The album tracks, however, remained
unreleased for forty nine years, finally appearing on the Morgan Blue Town
label, and the band’s complete recorded legacy, eleven finished masters,
two demos and an alternative mix are reviewed here, along with track by
track comments from songwriter Gardner and anecdotes supplied by Gardner
and drummer, Terry Sullivan.

The third and final lineup of Dry Ice consisted of Jeff Novak (vocals),
Paul Gardner (guitar, vocals), Chris Hyrenwicz (guitar), John Gibson (bass)
and Terry Sullivan (drums). The band’s big break came with an invitation to
play the Royal Albert Hall Festival in 1969. Just before the gig, tnen
bassist Phil Griffiths left the band. The remaining trio of Novak, Gardner
and Sullivan scrambled to find a replacement. Enter John Gibson, who
brought with him guitarist Chris Hyrenwicz, whose lead guitar work would be
put on display thanks to the songwriting of Paul Gardner. The band was so
impressive they were given an advance which included the recording of an
LP. Simon Stable, owner of Stable Records, also introduced the band to Ian
McDonald of King Crimson who would go on to record flute on “Lalia” one of
the tunes recorded by the band at IBC Studios and intended for release on
the band’s album. The band also played gigs with bands such as The Who,
Pink Floyd, Spooky Tooth, The Taste, Blossom Toes, King Crimson and The
Groundhogs among others.

The album’s recording was completed in less than two days, so although the
band was well rehearsed it was hard work. As for the tunes, “Dry Ice” opens
with “Clear White Light” written, as were all the band’s originals by Paul
Gardner, and showcases the guitar work of Chris Hyrenwicz, whose fuzzed out
lead guitar soars over the heavy beat. His two solos are indeed the focus
of this hard rocker, which serves as the perfect opener for the long
awaited (forty nine years) release of the long player whose master tapes,
long thought lost, were located and utilized, resulting in incredible sound
quality and an exciting listening experience. “She Gave” features a tasty
wah wah intro and is a lighter, trippier tune featuring gorgeous vocals by
Novak and impressive drum rolls by Sullivan. At 2:30 Hyenwicz’s fuzzed out
solo drives the song through its final forty seconds. When the tracks for
the LP were completed there was no obvious single, so Gardner was asked to
write a song for release on 45. Thus, on May 4, 1969 “Running To The
Convent” was recorded at Trident Studios in Soho, produced by Mke Dolan.
The song is included in two different mixes, beginning with the 2:20 edit
that was released as the a-side to Dry Ice’s lone single, and only release
available until now. A hot rocker, reminiscent of The Who, this song has
all the elements of an AM radio hit, ranging from mellow, subdued guitar to
its full on fuzzed out solo. The single was released on B&C Records in
November 1969. It was playlisted by Radio 1 and reviewed and played by
Annie Nightingale, but is now, in the words of Paul Gardner “rarer than a
hen’s toothy thing.” “Fake It” is a heavy, fuzz laden number with its lead
guitar roaring over the intense rhythm section work of Gibson and Sullivan.
With the exception of a short pause the fuzz is relentless as it roars,
with a second fuzzed out solo closing out this red hot number. The only
cover tune on “Dry Ice” is Bob Dylan’s “It’s All Over Now, Baby Blue.” It
differs from most of the rest of the material in that it is a bit gentler
and is one of only two songs sung by Paul Gardner, whose vocals resemble
those of Dylan, although much clearer and melodic to my ear.. It is also
contained in two mixes although in this case they have nearly the same
running time. This mid-tempo tune is a great cover, its chugging guitars
restrained although always looming, as if ready for a break out. “Chinese
House” rocks from its howling fuzz guitar intro until a false stop mid
song. However, the guitars quickly return and Hyenwicz provides some of his
finest work on this track., At five minutes, thirty five seconds it is the
longest cut and its feedback drenched close would have been the perfect
ending to the LP as it was intended to be. “Falling Down” is another rocker
with a fuzz guitar intro and wah wah added as a gorgeous touch. The track
is nicely restrained before its fuzz solo at 1:30 breaks out. The song
close with feedback filling the air, wah wah adding texture. “Good Friday”
opens with Sullivan’s drum intro, before guitars and bass enter the driving
beat. Novak’s deeply echoed vocals add to the tracks’ commercial
accessibility with a roaring fuzz filled solo ringing out for the tracks’
final minute. “Lalia” is a gentler acoustic number, sung by Gardner. The
five and a half minute track is highlighted by a flute solo by Ian McDonald
of King Crimson and later Foreigner, which, along with the restrained
guitars and Dylanesque vocals, fit right in with this tale of a young man’s
journey. “Nowhere To Go” was released as the b-side of “Running To The
Convent.” With its driving guitar intro, the tune has a Kinks like feel and
features absolutely gorgeous vocals by Novak. The lyrics draw a vivid image
as the guitars pick up the pace. Chris Hyenwicz adds two memorable solos,
the second driving the song to its finish. “Untitled ‘67” is another fuzz
guitar number with a heavy groove, its lyrics the lament of a heroin
addict. This sad tune is accentuated by gorgeous vocal harmonies and
Hyenwicz’s solo again pushing the track to a finish. Morgan Blue Town adds
two demo tracks, the first, “Ashes” never having been polished to a
mastered version. The four minute song has a memorable swirling guitar
intro and contains strong drum work by Sullivan and vocals by Novak.
“Ashes” has incredible potential with its gorgeous melody and contains even
more fuzzed out guitar solos. The demo version of “Running To The Convent”
is a full minute and a quarter longer than the released version. The gentle
guitar and vocal intro give way to fuzz guitar at 1:30 making the song
rock. This would have made a great album track. “Dry Ice” closes with an
alternative mix of “It’s All Over Now, Baby Blue” which is quite close in
sound to the finished master version, and has just as much commercial
appeal with its restrained, chugging guitars and Gardner’s vocal efforts
shining through.

John Gibson and Chris Hyenwicz left the band in late 1969 and sadly severed
all contact. Paul and Terry carried on for a few gigs but their hearts were
no longer in it. Paul went on to tour with acid folk rockers Trees, playing
bass, before forming Pluto in 1970 with The Foundations’ guitarist Alan
Warner. Terry joined the classic lineup of Renaissance, had a huge hit with
“Northern Lights” and toured the world. Jeff is a Swami at Skanda Vale in

The fourteen tracks on “Dry Ice” have a run time of about 54 minutes. The
Morgan Blue Town package comes in a standard jewel case and contains a
twelve page full color booklet complete with sleeve notes by Paul Gardner,
photos of all three incarnations of the band, handbills of gigs played by
the band, newspaper clippings, and an image of the band’s lone 45 a-side.
The recordings sound incredible thanks to the mastering job by Pete
Reynolds, utilizing the long thought lost original master tapes. Forty nine
years in the making, “Dry Ice” is an incredible document of heavy
psychedelic rock and will make a wonderful addition to the collection of
fans of this genre of music as well as fans of heavy late 60’s British rock.

Earl Palmer - Drumsville! (1961)

Posted: 20 Mar 2019 12:27 PM PDT

Earl Palmer was a first-call drummer on the New Orleans R&B recording scene from 1950 to 1957. Talk about a supreme recommendation -- in a city renowned for its second-line rhythms and syncopated grooves, Palmer was the man, playing on countless sessions by all the immortals: Little Richard, Fats Domino, Smiley Lewis, Dave Bartholomew, and too many more to list here.
Born to a mother who was a vaudevillian, little Earl was learning rhythmic patterns as a tap dancer at age four. Such contacts led him to be around drum kits on a regular basis, and it didn't take him long to master them. Bebop jazz was his first love, but R&B and blues paid the bills starting in 1947, when Palmer joined Bartholomew's band.
Palmer remained the king of the traps at Cosimo Matassa's fabled recording studio until 1957, when a Shirley & Lee session led to an A&R offer from Aladdin Records boss Eddie Mesner. Palmer found studio work just as plentiful in Los Angeles, making major inroads into the rock, jazz, and soundtrack fields as well as playing on countless R&B dates with his frequent compadres Rene Hall on guitar and saxist Plas Johnson. Occasionally, Palmer would record as a leader -- the instrumental "Johnny's House Party" for Aladdin, a couple of early-'60s albums for Liberty.
But even the best session men grapple with a certain sense of anonymity. So the next time you pull out Little Richard's "Tutti Frutti," Smiley Lewis's "I Hear You Knockin'," Lloyd Price's "Lawdy Miss Clawdy," or Fats Domino's "The Fat Man," please keep in mind that it's Palmer feverishly stoking that beat -- with a saucy second-line sensibility that drove those songs in fresh, utterly innovative directions.


The Romancers - The Slauson Shuffle

Posted: 19 Mar 2019 11:55 PM PDT

US rock band from the Eastside of Los Angeles, CA, active in the 1960s. They were one of the first East L.A. bands to record and paved the way for acts such as the Premiers and Cannibal & the Headhunters. The Romancers made two albums on Del-Fi Records and a string of singles for Eddie Davis' Linda label. Max Uballez was the group's leader, chief songwriter, and rhythm guitarist. He was involved in songwriting and production the Romancers' records, as well as other top Eastside bands.
