VA: - Fender - The Golden Age 1950-1970
Leo Fender’s contribution to the sound of modern music is immeasurable. The pop music explosion of the 1950s and 60s would not have happened without the electric guitar and, perhaps more importantly, the electric bass.”

So begins Martin Kelly’s notes for the CD of his book about Fender guitars. A book about music of course lacks the medium that it describes, so Martin came to Ace with a proposal to produce an accompanying CD that would make his pages even more vibrant. We were more than happy to celebrate the great sounds that Leo Fender helped conceive through his inspirational instruments.

As overseer of this CD, I was out of my depth in guitar minutiae, but was able to assist on the technical end and enjoyed a sharp learning curve in great guitar sounds. I thoroughly dug those ringing twangs of Bob Wills and Tennessee Ernie Ford. With Ike Turner and Otis Rush I was in more familiar music territory. The more poppy Crickets’ track ‘I’m Looking For Someone To Love’ was an inspired choice by Martin. It was the flip to the original ‘That’ll Be The Day’ which I’d managed to miss hearing for 55 years. ‘Suzie Q’ and the original ‘Folsom Prison Blues’ are better known numbers; listening to them in this guitar-based context gives them new relevance.

Guitar-led instrumentals were a must for the compilation and it is wonderful to relive the splendour of the Ventures’ signature tune and to hear the mighty Shadows at their most melodic. Breakaway Shadow Jet Harris then moves the spotlight to the renowned Fender bass on ‘Besame Mucho’. Booker T’s ‘Green Onions’ and Dick Dale’s ‘Miserlou’ are at the pinnacle of their genres and Jack Nitzche’s ‘Lonely Surfer’ shows how an inspired producer can use the guitar within a bigger production.

It is then back to basics with the Kingsmen’s ‘Louie Louie’, followed by Ronnie Hawkins’ ice-cold take on ‘Who Do You Love’. The Beach Boys and Bobby Fuller Four then demonstrate how to play straight down the middle pop: no frills but pure class. Then representing the awakening of British youth to the American dream, we have the Yardbirds’ take on Billy Boy Arnold’s ‘I Ain’t Got You’, a song that failed to score for its creator but became a belated blues classic once Eric Clapton had stamped his seal of approval on it.

Speaking of the blues, ‘Rock Me Baby’ by Otis Redding reminds us all that the world lost a brilliant blues singer, as well as the ultimate soul man, when his plane crashed in December 1967. By the time of this recording, Lewis Steinberg had been replaced by Duck Dunn on Fender Precision Bass duties.

As reflected by the Nashville-recorded Fender jingles, country music was always dominated by the guitar sounds of Fender. Buck Owens & the Buckaroos’ ‘Buckaroo’ features not only Fender electric and bass but acoustic too. The switch to the soul perfection of King Curtis’ ‘Memphis Soul Stew’ is surprisingly seamless and that city’s home-grown Willie Mitchell sound on ‘Soul Serenade’ shows how long-lived top flight R&B was down there. It is then just a year’s jump, but a small world away, to 1969 and the Velvet Underground’s 12-string Fenders. That is neatly followed by ex-Yardbird Jeff Beck on his Stratocaster and Stone-to-be Ron Wood playing a Telecaster bass; all in the admirable cause of helping Donovan’s ‘Goo Goo Barabajagal’ make musical if not literal sense.

I still may not be able to pick a Fender out in a crowd, but I now know how much listening pleasure I have derived from them.

VA: - Forgotten 45's 1960-1962 3CD
The Forgotten 45s 1960-1962 follows hot on the heels of The Forgotten 45s 1957-1959, Fantastic Voyage’s previous survey of The Ones That Got Away, which has already proved a bigger-seller and been the subject of an enthusiastic review in The Daily Mirror.

Not every record that’s released can be a hit. Not every record that’s released deserves to be a hit, but frequently records that do aren’t and that’s what this set is all about. Three CDs, packed full of great records that should have been hits, but weren’t. Reflecting the musical preferences of the era, the featured styles run the gamut of R&B, doo wop, soul, rock & roll, country, and mainstream pop. Some of the tracks will never have been on legitimately released CDs before; all will give listening pleasure to collectors and pop music fans alike.

Artists, labels and other pundits could reasonably have expected these recording to be UK hit singles, but they were denied that success. The reason may be apparent with hindsight: the timely release of a rival version, or the listening public starting to fall out of love with the artist, or their style of music. But other misses are harder to fathom, and of course it is this unpredictability that goes a long way to explain our fascination with hit records.

Some of the featured tracks have become favourite oldies despite never making our charts (“Sticks And Stones”, “Last Night”, “Hello Walls”, “Pledging My Love”), some are wannabe hits by name artists whose chart pedigree is not in doubt (Pat Boone, Alma Cogan, Jackie Wilson, Bobby Darin, Craig Douglas, the Platters) and some were “new kids on the block” from both sides of the Atlantic, whose releases should have done so much better.

A fascinating parallel narrative when considered alongside hits-of-the-year compilations, like Fantastic Voyage’s exhaustive British Hit Parade series, The Forgotten 45s 1960-1962, and its companion set The Forgotten 45s 1957-1959, give collectors the chance to fill those holes in their archives which they’ve always meant to fill, but haven’t, and will give impulse CD buyers a thrilling reminder of records that passed consumers by in the heyday of pop music.

Check out the artists and song titles on this disc. They'll serve as a once 'n' final warning for anyone thinkin' they've just scored some nostalgic good vibrations from the feelin' groovy sixties (Congratulations, you're about to buy the wrong collection, bub). No, what we have here is the untold, bad-attitude underbelly of that decade's rock 'n' revolution; a teenage nation that churned out thousands of raging garage records that rarely escaped Hometown U.S.A. obscurity. These are the 45 rpm singles too extreme for their time…

VA: - Going Wild - Music City Rock'n'Roll
As rock’n’roll approaches its 60th birthday most of the great vintage rockin’ stashes would appear to have to have been fully exhumed. Virtually every scrap of worthy 1950s rockabilly or rock’n’roll has been relatively easy to obtain over the past couple of decades. Therefore it’s refreshing to present a full disc worth of rockin’ goodness that hasn’t been regurgitated ad infinitum. In fact 80% of “Going Wild! Music City Rock’n’Roll” is previously unissued, and its highlights are the tracks which fell to the cutting room floor.

Music City Records, of Berkeley, California is most closely associated with vocal groups. Ray Dobard’s venerable imprint, in operation for a quarter century from the early 50s on, had its greatest success with records such as ‘WPLJ’ and ‘Ichi Bon Tami Dachi’. These were discs that catered principally to the black community, though they also found favour amongst white teenagers, who began flocking to Dobard’s record store to purchase the hot R&B sounds. Rock’n’roll is not a genre that comes to mind when thinking of the label’s release schedule, even though the acts Dobard recorded, and the records he put out, traversed the dawn of the rock era. The truth is, rock’n’roll did not kick in locally until 1957.

Thus, Music City has traditionally not been on the radar of collectors of rockabilly or vintage rock vinyl. However, the vaults of the label reveal a small but significant cache of recordings, equally distributed between white and black artists, that fall squarely in the rock’n’roll category, or even some of its sub-genres. Rockabilly ravers, piano pounders and juke jivers all lurk amongst the many hundreds of tape reels Dobard amassed, as he welcomed musicians of all abilities into his studio to show him what they had. The man’s reputation as a ruthless exploiter of local talent was fairly well-known, even back in the 1950s, but he continued to attract hopefuls because of his track record and the belief that he had the connection to success. As the 1950s wore on and rock got a stronger grip on the Bay Area scene, more and more acts showed up with rockin’ material.

Given the initial awareness of rock’n’roll on a national level in 1956, it was unsurprising that the speculative Dobard would attempt to exploit what many viewed as a fad, by having some of his vocal groups tackle rock’n’roll or teenage-type material. But even though he released very few discs that qualified as rock’n’roll at the time, because Dobard recorded enough of it, the Music City cache is noteworthy.

There are a couple slightly familiar names on parade: Sugar Pie de Santo and Music City flagship acts such as the Gaylarks, who benefit from the guitar slinging of band leader Johnny Heartsman. The Five Crystels, Dialtones and Klixs deliver Coasters-flavoured delights, while Jimmy Cicero, the Pendletons and Ron & Don parlay the plaintive East Bay teen rock sound. There’s primo rockabilly from Roy Burk and the Emarks, and three tracks from the finger-snapping 3 Honeydrops, veterans of perhaps the only genuine rock’n’roll disc on Music City in ‘Rockin’ Satellite’.

The contents of “Going Wild!” were all recorded between 1957 and 1961. There can be no doubt that if Ray Dobard had released some of these unpolished gems at the time, they would rank not only alongside the venerated Music City blues and doo wop rarities, but among rockin’ records of any description.

VA: - Golden Age Of American Rock 'n' Roll Vol. 12
This admirable series is so aptly named. Contrary to popular thought, if you had a bit of imagination and knew where to search, it really was a golden age, as any old relics (like me) who remember it will readily agree. We’re looking and feeling increasingly weird and marginalised these days, of course.

At a time when most music purveyors and consumers care little about history, context, who wrote a song, who played on it, who produced it, which region it burst from, what inspired it, which label it was released on, and other important sniff-snaff, I think we should all get down on our knees every so often and thank the great cosmic duck for the unswerving Ace Records and all who sail in her.

Disinterred, as usual, by the meticulous and inexhaustible Rob Finnis, this is the 12th volume of 45 rpm treasure. Thirty gems; no clinkers. Some familiar; some obscure. Stimulating examples not only of rock’n’roll (as advertised) but of R&B, teen-pop, country rock, Motown, surf, Spector, soul and other emerging strands. Magnificent sound; illuminating notes.

Back in the late 50s, one could dehydrate, wither up and die waiting for the useless, fusty, paternalistic BBC to play any (okay, practically any) of these records. Were it not for the legal payola of Radio Luxembourg we would have been lost – but thanks to their fluctuating long-reach signal, beamed towards war-torn, Conservative-governed, broke and busted, soot-encrusted Britain, we glimpsed the exotic wonder of America.

For many of us, worship of all things American had become an established religion. Everything seemed so much better over there ... girls, cars, clothes, gangsters, cowboys, songwriters, films, film stars, Negroes, trains, planes, juke boxes, jazz, climate, beaches, history, geographical features, place names, rivers, hair styles, radio, television, sport, street names, magazines, food, skyscrapers, athletes, boxers, confectionery, sunshine, comics, even their flag and their money. But at least we got our hands on some of their music – and that was the key, that’s what coloured up our drab world, changed the very nature of our existence.

As a result of hearing their records on Lux, the hippest kids of my generation – the Eric Burdons, the George Harrisons, the Mick Jaggers, the Guy Stevens, the Ian Samwells, the Roger Eagles – grew up idolising the likes of Larry Williams, Bo Diddley, James Ray, Slim Harpo, Charlie Gracie and Arthur Alexander.

They marvelled at the clang of the guitar solo on ‘Bad Motorcycle’, at the undulating riff of ‘Raunchy’, the teenage ingénue Gladys Horton pleading with the postman, the grisly imagery of ‘Dinner With Drac’, the falsetto braggadocio of Jimmy Jones, the open-hearted anguish of Jerry Butler.

They gurgled at lines like “I knew by the way he smoked, he was a bad motorcycle”, “I found to my shock, I was on the wrong block!” and “I used to lie, I used to cheat, and step on people’s feet – but now I’m stepping on to glory ... I’m saved!”

But few would have heard the fabulous “5” Royales cut or fleeting vocal groups the Velaires and the 3 Friends – showcased here in pristine quality.

Mesmerised by ‘Whole Lotta Woman’, Brian “Hank” Rankin changed his name to Marvin – while another young British guitarist, Jim Sullivan, unwittingly provided Conway Twitty with the arrangement for ‘Lonely Blue Boy’.

I still find this music endlessly fascinating – but, as my parents always predicted, I’m sure I’ll grow out of it one day.
