|Alvin Cash - Windy City Workout - The Essential Dance Craze Hits 2CD
Chicago soul music is one of the many regional variations that proved nationally popular during the 1960s and this unique collection celebrates one of the city’s many stars Alvin Cash. An often overlooked sub-genre is the almost never-ending stream of dance craze records which caught the national imagination, and Alvin Cash was among the leading exponents.
Windy City Workout is the first ever legitimate CD release devoted entirely to Cash’s recordings. Disc 1 opens with his sole album release Twine Time, named after his biggest hit, and continues into Disc 2 with all of his single releases in chronological order. This deluxe memorabilia-laden package features notes from the eminent Chicago blues and soul expert Robert Pruter, and the track listing denotes all the chart placings he secured on America’s pop and R&B charts.
Cash’s recordings for Mar-V-Lus, Toddlin’ Town, Seventy-Seven and Sound Stage Seven are all included. Also featured are three tracks which only ever appeared on the now ultra-rare Toddlin’ Town LP, Wilson Pickett’s ‘Funky Broadway’ and two Arthur Conley hits, ‘Funky Street’ and ‘People Sure Act Funny’. Dances with instructions include The Twine, The Boo Ga Loo, The Bump, The Barracuda, The Boston Monkey, The Penguin, The Freeze, The Charge, The Popcorn and, second only to The Twine, The Ali Shuffle, a dance which Alvin dedicated to Mohammed Ali.
Alvin Cash passed away in 1999 but his music still resonates on today’s soul scene, as a quick visit to YouTube will attest. This carefully compiled 2CD set is the first comprehensive retrospective of his work and is testimony to the power of dance music; get up and get down is all you can really do to this collection.

|Ennio Morricone - Morricone In Colour 4CD
With his peerless versatility and productivity, Ennio Morricone is one of the most famous and influential composers of the twentieth century.
Drawing from an extraordinary range of musical styles, his 500 film scores have
accompanied every conceivable musical genre.
Morricone's innovative soundscapes for Sergio Leone's mid-sixties spaghetti westerns
changed film music forever. In any context, the composer's work is a formidable
combination of eclecticism, sensuality and playfulness.
The eight film soundtracks featured in the this box set all derive from the period between the late sixties and mid-seventies when the Maestro was in his pomp. The arty erotica of Giuseppe Patroni Griffi's Metti, una sera a cena is perfectly complimented by Morricone's cool jazz score and his music gives humour and great beauty to such offbeat period pieces as Forza g and Il Gatto and the abstraction that is L'assoluto naturale (starring the Yugoslavian actress Sylvia Koscina and the superb Laurence Harvey).
Arguably the most impressive of the set are the composer's scores for the early Argento giallos, The Bird with the Crystal Plumage and Four Flies on Grey Velvet. In the former, Morricone's ominous, haunting music establishes an almost unbearable suspense and for the latter combines bracing atonality with a send up of progressive rock (the director's first experiment with such music and a prelude to Goblin)

|Huey Piano Smith - It Do Me Good 2CD
The Banashak & Sansu Sessions 1966-1978.
When it comes to good time rollicking rock’n’roll or rhythm’n’blues, there are few exponents to match Huey ‘Piano’ Smith. One of the greatest of New Orleans’ many pianists, Smith began his career with blues men like Guitar Slim and Earl King and enjoyed a string of classic hits in the late 1950s. During that time he wrote and recorded three of rock and roll’s most enduring classics, ‘Rockin’ Pneumonia And The Boogie Woogie Flu’, ‘High Blood Pressure’ and ‘Sea Cruise’, the latter featuring the vocals of Frankie Ford. His career continued well into the 1970s.
This deluxe package is an upgraded version of a Charly CD released in the late 1980s, Pitta Pattin’. This collection - featuring the recordings he made for the Instant label in the late 1960s - has now been expanded to include several tracks not featured on the original including the ultra rare ‘Two Way Pock-A-Way’, ‘Epitaph To A Black Man’ and ‘The Whatcha Call ‘Em’ plus several newly discovered, previously unissued recordings. His powerful piano can be heard to good effect on the previously unissued, ‘I’m Boss Pt 2’ with its almost Northern Soul sound.
Many of Smith’s early Instant 45s were big local hits in New Orleans and Louisiana without ever denting any national charts and have long been sought after by collectors, with some, like ‘Two Way Pock-A-Way’, proving almost impossible to find today. Also featured are versions of ‘Rockin’ Pneumonia’, ‘High Blood Pressure’ and ‘Don’t You Just Know It’ recorded for an Atlantic LP that was never released. By way of a bonus, Huey’s last known recordings made for Allen Toussaint’s Sansu company in 1978 make their CD debut here, more than thirty years after their first release on Charly vinyl.
These are the last recordings of Huey Smith who retired from music to concentrate on his religious beliefs in the early 80s. He now lives in retirement in Baton Rouge but still happily acknowledges his huge contribution to New Orleans R&B and to rock’n’roll in general.

|Johnny Otis - That's Your Last Boogie! - The Best of Johnny Otis 3CD
The Best Of Johnny Otis 1945-1960‘Godfather of Rhythm & Blues’
Johnny Otis, one of the founding fathers of rock ’n’ roll, is next up in Dave Penny’s Architects Of Rock ’N’ Roll series, represented on a stellar collection straddling his multi-faceted career between 1945-1960.By sheer tragic coincidence, Dave had Otis lined up as a prime subject when planning the series over a year ago but January 17, 2012 saw the pioneering singer, songwriter, bandleader, talent spotter, impresario and disc jockey pass away at home in California, aged 90.
These carefully-selected and sequenced 83 tracks spread over three CDs now stand as an ultimate tribute to this pivotal figure.The son of Greek immigrants (real name Ioannis Alexandros Veliotes), Otis grew up in the predominantly black area of Berkeley, telling an interviewer in 1994, ‘Genetically, I’m pure Greek. Psychologically, environmentally, culturally, by choice, I’m a member of the black community.’ As such, he played a major part in creating a new sound for the growing audience of young urban blacks, starting out drumming in swing orchestras at 18. He formed a 16-piece big band in 1945, scoring his first hit with a glorious take on ‘Harlem Nocturne’.
CD1’s sublime smorgasbord of big band jazz and slinky blues, entitled Barrelhouse Stomp after the Watts club he opened in 1948, features further Otis orchestra titles alongside outings with Wynonie Harris, Joe Turner, Lester Young, (future Coasters) the Robins and Little Esther Phillips.In 1949, Otis started recording for the Newark, New Jersey-based Savoy label, scoring 15 Billboard R&B chart hits between 1950-52, including number ones with Little Esther & Mel Walker which dominate CD2’s Rockin’ Blues, joined by names including the Royals and Marilyn Scott. In 1952, Otis discovered Etta James and produced Big Mama Thornton’s original version of Leiber and Stoller’s ‘Hound Dog’, while enjoying a growing career as a songwriter, already presenting the rock ’n’ roll form and attitude soon to sweep the world. While starting his lifelong vocation as a disc jockey in LA, he became a talent scout for King Records, while scoring the late fifties hits (including 1958 US top tenner ‘Willie And The Hand Jive’) featured on CD3’s Going Crazy (1952-1960). Other names included on this most rocking of selections include Etta James, Little Richard, Pete ‘Guitar’ Lewis, Johnny Ace, Sugar Pie, Faye Wilson and Mr Goggle Eyes August.Johnny’s passion, benevolence, warmth and uncanny musical clairvoyance shines through every track on this magnificent set, capturing many of his achievements at this most crucial time in musical history. That aside, it also happens to be one hell of a party album for the summer.

|Muddy Waters - You Shook Me 2CD
The Chess Masters Vol. 3 1958-1963.
Six years after the last set of Muddy Waters’ Chess recordings by Hip-O Select, the boutique label will release You Shook Me: The Chess Masters Volume 3 1958-1963 next week.
While Waters’ profile was well on the rise before the period covered on this two-disc set – having put singles like “I’m Your Hoochie Coochie Man,” “I Just Want to Make Love to You” and “Mannish Boy” in the upper reaches of the R&B charts – You Shook Me is notable for being anchored not only around single releases but two of Waters’ first LPs. 1960′s Muddy Waters Sings “Big Bill” was a tribute to Big Bill Broonzy, the Chicago bluesman who gave Waters one of his first major professional breaks opening for him at local clubs. The other, recorded that same year, was Muddy Waters at Newport 1960, a killer of a live album that featured revelatory versions of “Hoochie Coochie Man” and “Got My Mojo Workin.’”
This 49-track set also includes one unreleased instrumental, “Sweet Black Angel,” and a handful of songs that appeared only on a multi-LP box set of Waters’ Chess output released in Japan. Mary Katherin Aldin pens liner notes for the booklet, which is filled with rare photos of Waters in action.

Though the ’60s garage band explosion was felt in every corner ofthe country, the local uprising of talent in Chicago thrived unlike anywhere else. The Windy City had the perfect infrastructure in place; from a booming population of teenagers, to hip music stores in every suburb, a proliferation of teen clubs willing to take their money, and a powerhouse radio station (WLS) equally up to promoting local bands. When it came to giving local groups a shot at 45 rpm fame, no Chicago label—not even the hallowed Dunwich Records—was more prolific than USA Records. USA’s Jim Golden was such a strong supporter of Midwest talent that he started up a second label focused solely in this area, Destination Records. A quarter century into the CD age, it’s hard to believe these pivotal labels have never been properly anthologized. Until now, that is! Sundazed once again arrives to the rescue with an exhaustive dive into the pure, undiluted garage side of USA and Destination Records; tapping into everything from priceless artifacts from the Lost Agency, the Foggy Notions, and Park Avenue Playground to label hitmakers the Buckinghams, the Cryan’ Shames, and the Flock at their most rockin’. There’s so much impossibly great music on these labels, we had to expand this collection to 40 tracks. The album artwork is stuffed with rare photos, band bios, and an interview with the legendary Jim Golden. For a full course of Chicago ’66 garage at its finest, look no further than 2131 South Michigan Avenue: 60’s Garage & Psychedelia from USA and Destination Records!

|VA: - Eteenpäin! Suomi-Jazz 1960-1975 3CD
Nimimerkki Pessimisti kirjoitti Rytmi-lehden numerossa 6/1960 synkästi: "Minne menet Suomen jazz? Tällä hetkellä vastaus näyttää olevan tuhoisan yksinkertainen: Kuolemaan. Suomessa jazz on henkihieverissään."
Nimimerkin ennustus ei onneksi toteutunut. Päinvastoin, sillä 1960-luku merkitsi suurta muutosta suomalaisessa jazzissa. Ripeä kehitys jatkui 1970-luvulla, jolloin suomalainen jazz vakiinnutti asemansa musiikin kentässä kansainvälisestikin.

|VA: - Jamaica Selects Jump Blues Strictly For You 3CD
Fantastic Voyage takes another dip into the bubbling cauldron of R&B which sewed the seeds for ska on Jamaica’s sound systems in the 1940s and 50s, lashing together 85 sizzling biscuits from that formative, feet-finding era.It’s well established that the US R&B which started bombarding the island through radio after World War II was picked up by sound systems such as Clement ‘Coxsone’ Dodd and Prince Buster, germinating into ska after mating with the Caribbean’s own calypso and other local musical strains.
The records being produced in America’s Southern states and cities like New Orleans were loosely termed ‘shuffle blues’; contagious, jumping and bulging with animated incitements to party, dance or get down and dirty, many boasting some of the most caterwaulingly volcanic saxophone solos known to man.The tracks presented on Jamaica Selects Jump Blues Strictly For You straddle the shuffle blues panorama over three CDs (many making their debut in this format). The first disc’s The Roots Of Shuffle Blues (1944-1951) takes off like a rocket with names including post-war godfather Louis Jordan, Joe Liggins and his Honeydrippers, Roy Milton, Sherman Williams, Dave Bartholomew, Lowell Fulson, Jimmy Liggins, Amos Millburn, Roy Brown and T-Bone Walker.
CD2’s The Golden Years Of Shuffle Blues (1951-1954) is emblazoned with the likes of Oscar McLollie, Chuck Higgins, Rosco Gordon, Fats Domino, Ruth Brown, Jack Dupree, Chuck Willis, Guitar Slim, the Charms, Marvin & Johnny, Tommy Ridgley, Earl Curry, Floyd Dixon, the Rocking Brothers and, of course, Louis Jordan. By CD3’s The Big Three Take Over (1955-1960) the rhythm firing on the upbeat over walking bass is blueprinting the ska spring with names such as Nappy Brown, Plas Johnson, the Penguins, Mello-Harps, Big Joe Turner, Shirley & Lee, Vince Monroe, Smiley Lewis, Lloyd Price, Ivory Joe Hunter, Professor Longhair, Clyde McPhatter, Johnny Otis, Earl Hooker, Ernie Freeman and Hal Paige & The Wailers.These discs should come with a warning: lethal rocking and leaping skank blueprints running amok, beautifully presented with knowledgeable, fact-packed annotation.

Swampabilly Shindig leaps deep into the bayous and plantations of the Deep South. Here, although racial segregation remained law, black and white music mixed with country and rockabilly taking beautiful shape as the hillbilly cats learnt from their blues playing and gospel singing neighbours. Gathered here are 50 tunes with Southern roots from artists as legendary (and as different) as The Staple Singers, Elmore James and Jerry Lee Lewis.

|VA: - The Fame Studios Story 3CD
The acronym is F-A-M-E, but it may as well be S-O-U-L.
It was a full half-century ago that the recording studio, record label and publishing operation originally known as Florence Alabama Music Enterprises established itself and its trademark sound with the hit recording of ‘You Better Move On’ by Arthur Alexander. In the fifty years since, FAME Studios and its idiosyncratic founder Rick Hall have been at the forefront of the Muscle Shoals Sound. FAME begat the process whereby a little known Alabama backwater would evolve into the very crucible of southern soul, a holy place to where musicians, singers and fans still make a very specific pilgrimage in the hope of experiencing a little bit of the magic behind so many hit records: ‘I’m Your Puppet’, ‘Land Of 1,000 Dances’, ‘Tell Mama’ and countless others.
Rick Hall is now a grand old man of the music business, but back in the 60s he was more akin to an enfant terrible, with an unbending will that helped him make it against almost insurmountable odds, matched by an attention to detail that bordered on obsession. There have only ever been a handful of truly self-sufficient producer/engineers in the history of popular music, and Hall is pre-eminent amongst them. Atlantic, Chess and so many other legendary labels flocked to FAME to avail themselves of the sound, the players, the material, and most importantly the vibe that Rick Hall had created.
The FAME Studios Story 1961-1973 is an exhaustive three CD set derived from two years’ worth of excavations by the intrepid Ace team at the hallowed FAME vault. The result is a full programme of FAME-related releases slated for issue on Ace, Kent, and BGP over the next couple of years, but the lynchpin is this definitive anthology that focuses upon the halcyon days of the studio and the label. It’s an open-minded, celebratory overview that, across 75 tracks, spotlights both artists and records that are either acknowledged greats, or lesser known – yet no less worthy – entries in the lexicon of soul.
The line-up is a virtual Who’s Who of 60s soul, and includes Otis Redding, Aretha Franklin, Wilson Pickett, Etta James, Arthur Conley, Irma Thomas, Joe Tex, Joe Simon, Lou Rawls, Spencer Wiggins and Otis Clay. Deep soul fans will recognise names such as The Blues Busters, Billy Young, Maurice & Mac, Willie Hightower, Bettye Swann, James Govan and many, many others. Special attention is paid to those acts closely associated with the Fame label - Candi Staton, Jimmy Hughes and Clarence Carter - as well as its inestimable stable of writers, producers and players, including Dan Penn, Spooner Oldham, George Jackson and the Fame Gang. And the programme also includes several of the notable pop hits recorded at the studio by the Osmonds, Tommy Roe and Bobbie Gentry, as well as more obscure recordings by the Del Rays, Mark V and Terry & The Chain Reaction.
With unprecedented access granted to its tape and photo archive, well over a third of the contents of The FAME Studio Story 1961-1973 are new to CD, and of those, over a dozen tracks are fully unissued – including previously unheard rarities by Otis Redding and Arthur Alexander. The heavily-illustrated package with an 84 page book comes laden with two informative essays and extensive track notes, all of which are based upon fresh interviews with many of the principals involved.
If you know anything about soul music, you know FAME, which is why The FAME Studio Story 1961-1973 is an essential purchase.
