The second show is equally great as it documents their one-time reunion. Both shows were recorded at the Rat, the Boston club where they and so many other classic bands emerged in the '70s. Extensively remastered by Mono Man. Warehouse find. Cover art by Paul Mavrides. Design by Patrick Boissel. A now classic record from the first wave of garage revival repressed for the first time since its original release on Voxx Records. Only available here.
Their penultimate release, recorded live in Germany, shows why European audience were so enamored of this band. It begins with the power chords and mystical innuendos of "A Play on Wordsworth" and proceeds through an hour of highlights from their first four albums.
I thoroughly enjoyed it. It has rubber feet with good tack that combined with its weight makes for a stable and secure platform for the mechanics of what it is designed for. It is smooth to open and close and keeps dust out. Reviewers seem particularly impressed with the auto-stop feature on this Fluance turntable.
When you select auto-off the arm stops, and you simply return it. The instrument has a monophonic vacuum-tube keyboard, the keys themselves mounted on springs, so that they can be manipulated to create a vibrato effect whilst playing.
Its suite of slow-paced lullabies was intended for mental hospitals to use as a sort of audio sedative. Kwela aka pennywhistle jive was the link between the South African township-music marabi in the s and the mbaqanga and sax jive styles which emerged in the s.
In the street, kwela was typically played on three or four pennywhistles, with the lead musician playing the melody and improvising around it while his colleagues riffed in the background. In the recording studio, a stand-up bass was sometimes added. Spokes Mashiyane was the most popular performer, rivalled only by Lemmy Mabaso.
King Kwela is a collection of previously issued singles and is authentic kwela at its best. Just when most contemporary observers were writing off big-band jazz as an anachronism, in need of radical retooling by the likes of Gil Evans, the venerable Count Basie recorded this stomping celebration of the classic sound. Still kicking? He was revered by the new generation of bossa nova singers and his songs were staples of the genre.
The album was recorded at a frat party at Cornell University, an Ivy League institution whose students could afford to finance mementos such as this. But Gaynair was born in Jamaica and moved to Germany in , at a time when the best jazz was widely considered to come exclusively from the US. Gaynair made only three albums as leader before his death in Blue Bogey was the first. The second, Africa Calling, was recorded in , but the demise of Tempo that year led to it staying unreleased for decades.
Both albums were recorded in London with British rhythm sections and reveal a saxophonist who had clearly been listening to Benny Golson and Lucky Thompson, but who had infused those influences with a twist of the Caribbean. As good as anything Hank Mobley recorded and, for the moment anyway, available for a lot less money.
By , when this compilation was released, Brown had developed an equally affecting stage-routine to go with it — pleading, begging, falling to his knees in apparent exhaustion and having to be ushered towards the wings by a member of his entourage, only to break free and return to the mic for an extended reprise.
Great song, great theatre. John, The Night Tripper persona was still almost ten years away and the clean shaven, year-old guitarist and pianist was working as a session man. These two originals show little of the psychedelia and voodoun with which Dr. Allen Toussaint is on back-up piano. Rock N Rolla. The Power Wear. USA Gear. Retailer Walmart.
