  8. Nice image above, have you created that with an AI bot Farq, or is it an old photo of you next door neighbours in the 50’s?

    As for last album I played all the way, Siouxsie & The Banshees - Twice Upon A Time, The Singles 1982-1992. I had recently purchased some CD’s in the charity shop, they are nearly giving away CD’s and DVD’s these days. The Banshees disk has been played multiple times in the last few weeks.

  9. ‘The Complete Pacific Jazz Recordings of the Chico Hamilton Quintet’

    This 6CD set from Mosaic Records is Chico and his group at the absolute top of their game, and contains three full albums and many previously unreleased numbers by the original Chico Hamilton band and also has quite a few titles from the second Hamilton group (which has Paul Horn and John Pisano in the places of Collette and Hall). Also, there are three titles from the third Hamilton Quintet (with Eric Dolphy on flute and alto) and a 1959 Duke Ellington tribute date that featured both Collette and Horn.

    As always with all Mosaic releases, the audio is superb.

  25. Rufus Reid has been playing acoustic bass on jazz sessions for well over 50 years, and his credits easily exceed over 1000 dates. His lastest solo recording, Its the Nights I Like, is a duo outing with pianist, Sullivan Fortner. It was recorded with the Newvelle Records label. Newvelle is interesting - they hire all the musicians and use state of the art recording techniques, and innitially only release the recordings, in vinyl, through their mail distribution system for the three years. After that, the lead artist gets all rights to the recordings. Really nice album with amazing acoustics.

  32. Today's pick from exy, on a fuss-free file host for your convenience (@320):

    "A sublime set of roots, vocal and dubbed out instrumental magic, Close Encounters of the Third World is a real lost gem in the treasure-filled Creation Rebel back catalogue. A true cross-atlantic collaboration – initial rhythm tracks were laid down in London in 1978, with horns and vocals overdubbed at Channel One in Jamaica, before bandleader Crucial Tony returned to London with the tapes for the album to be mixed by a visiting Prince Jammy."

  34. Here's a really nice album. 20 piece salsa and latin jazz big band that comes from (checks notes, and then checks compass), the Netherlands! Lucas Van Merwijk (drummer) and the Cubop City Big Band recorded "More & More" back in 1998, but are still performing throughout Europe. Great latin jazz/salsa album.

  39. Thanks Babs for this and all the other superb uploads that wash up on these shores. Even with a spent liver and a jaundiced pallor to match, Art still played effortlessly and was as inventive as ever late into his career. I used to catch his regular guest appearances at Sunday concerts at La Canada High School near LA. The band teacher was an alumnus of the LA studio scene and the concerts featured the cream of TV and studio guys just gigging for fun. Bright moments.

  40. With Fat Tuesday fast approaching, its time for one more round of classic NO music. Earl (locals, including the man himself, pronouce it "Oil") King was a guitarist and composer not particularly well known outside of NO. He did write three songs that earned him huge paydays: I Hear You Knockin', One Night (Presley recorded it) and Come On (Hendrix and SRV). Also penned one of the better NO songs, Big Chief (homage to the Mardi Gras Indians). He could always be found hanging out at the Tastee Donuts shop at Esplanade and Broad, nursing a hangover (basically drank himself to death). Recorded several lps, including Street Parade, which has The Meters as the backing band and was produced by Toussaint. Album sat on the shelf for almost 2 decades due to label indifference, until King managed to acquire all of the rights and basically self released it. Its a fantastic recording. Link has that lp, plus 2 more: Glazed (with Roomful of Blues as the backing band) and Hard River (with another great NO guitarist, Blind Snooks Eaglin). Le Bon Ton Roulet! https://mega.nz/folder/w2oiCB6A#j6asQhFy0CtWo2iJXE6EDw

    2. Not to be pedantic, but Earl neither wrote nor recorded I Hear You Knocking nor One Night. Both were written by Dave Bartholemew and originally recorded by Smiley Lewis. That being said, thanks a bunch for the swell Earl albums! I sat with Earl at the F&M Patio Bar one very late night and he told me a story about driving around New Orleans with Ray Charles at the wheel! "A blind man driving my car!" True or embellished, he was a helluva raconteur and a cool gent, not to mention a great writer, performer and guitarist. Too bad he couldn't put down the bottle... almost all the great NOLA R&B guys are gone now. Glad I had the chance to see a lot of 'em and meet some, too.

  41. Vertigo, UK, 'eavy rock, at the break of the 'seventies. A lack of great songs got May Blitz lost in the shuffle, but they're more worthwhile than you might think. Dynamics, mainly. Unlike every single new or recent hard rock band, they're capable of shifts of mood and instrumentation. They're heavy/prog, almost. Union standard drumming from Tony Newman, who later became an in-demand sessioner, maximum riffology and mindwarp fretwork from mystery Canuck guitarist James Black, and mystery Canuck Reid Hudson on bass. Nice to play once in a while, if only to remind yourself what a fertile genre hard rock used to be.

    1. There’s some great stuff on Vertigo, when I was buying vinyl I got a couple of Colosseum albums, but after a while the ‘spiral’ albums started getting too expensive.

      I’ve put together three favourite early 70’s Vertigo albums, none of these are heavy rock.
      1- Affinity is wonderful groovy Hammond jazz rock - this is a classic in my book.
      2- Cressida are quite heavy but most of the tracks are short.
      3- Jade Warrior are, well make your own mind up.

    4. Hey, anonymous, if any of those acts is capable of the dynamics of May Blitz (or even better, Led Zeppelin) (or Deep Purple) (or ...) then share that album! I'm aware that hard rock still exists, but all I've heard of it is pretty generic, no experimentation, no changes in mood, no jazz influences. Very much a samey sound all the way through the album, cookie cutter stuff. I mean fertile in the sense of ideas - if you have just one album that proves me wrong, share something yourself instead of posting a shopping list!

      Delete
    5. Experimental, moody, jazzy. Thought this was about the Hard & Heavy stuff. I get it. First you can go to the very friendly bandcamp.com site and stream most if not all these for FREE. Give them a chance, some are low fi but killer hard rock, some like Westing are a bit derivitive but still quite good. If you listen to the whole albums, something apparently challenging to some, you might just find some surprises. As for your own personal files try this one from Odysses, a band from Germany and their 2022 release.

  46. And here's one for the country rock crowd around here.

    If you are relatively familiar with Gene Clark, then you might know that the sessions for and then the release of his 1972 album Roadmaster were fraught with difficulties and issues of all kind. Among them:a controversial remix.

    I have reworked Gene's album to be closer to what he envisioned, meaning establishing the original mix by Chris Hinshaw. So, if you just want the music, here's Gene Clark - Shooting Star

    https://workupload.com/file/mFFpqhs7LjQ

    2. Thank you! A lot of the street music here - guitar, bass, percussion - has a very trippy Left Coast improv sound (of course, it's probably the other way around). There's less of it these days since Fear Of Covid kept people off the streets.

    3. It all sounds very exotic to me. Must be something to wander around the country and run into some cool music there. Same goes for the Indonesian rock I posted. There is cool music everywhere for those willing to look and listen.

  53. Blind Willie McTell - ‘Complete Recorded Works Vols.1-3’

    1. Thanks, Babs. As an aside to the Dylan quote, Papa McTell recorded as "Georgia Sam," who made an appearance (with a bloody nose) in the song Highway 61 Revisited. Duane Allman once said that McTell was his biggest influence.

  54. Here's the heroically-named Bob Burger (YAY!) with his 2022 solo album The Domino Effect, and his group The Weeklings with their latest album Raspberry Park. Brilliant, catchy, guitar-driven pop-rock you'll want to play when unexpected guests (and why hasn't anyone thought of Unexpected Guests as a group name?) drop by, at very high volume, grinning like a fool and shouting ISN'T THIS JUST FUCKING AWESOME????? until they get the hint.

    1. I once tutored a kid, named Robin Hood, who lived on Maid Marian Dr in a subdivision called Sherwood Forest (his father developed the property). I always figured he would grow up to be a serial killer.

      Delete
    2. If this is true, it's one of the weirdest stories I ever heard. That poor kid.

      Delete
    3. Oh, absolutely true. I feared for that kid's future development. His dad was a retired naval officer and was an odd mfer. Mother was a somewhat typical 70s suburban housewife (yes, dear).

      Delete
    4. I misread "I once tutored a kid" as I once tortured a kid...

    5. Pretty sure his parents were already doing that. I saved the torture until I had my two!

  55. Not sure if this will adequately convey the time in which it became popular, and the Weimar Republicesque aura, coupled with the existential feeling of dread that permeated everything (Happy Sunday people!), but here's a little oddity by a group called Wazozo that was the brainchild of Belgian cellist, Helen Gillet. Helen moved to New Orleans in the 90s, and was a highly regarded avant garde musician. In the immediate aftermath of Katrina, she started a twice weekly gig at a spared coffee house in the Bywater section of the city, playing some original tunes, coupled with standards, that were all rooted in the French chancon style. These outings quickly became immensely popular amongst those of us who stayed and started the initial rebuild process. Its definetly different, and I'd be shocked in any of the 4 or 5 guys ever heard this before. Album called Newton's Circus.

  56. Frank Zappa - ‘Orchestral Favorites’

    This is the 3CD 40th anniversary version.

    CD1 is the original Album that was remastered for this release by Bob Ludwig from the 1976 master tape, plus a bonus track of ‘Strictly Genteel’ (Keyboard Od Version).

    CDs 2 and 3 are The Abnuceals Emuukha Electric Symphony Orchestra - Live At Royce Hall, September 18th, 1975, that was remixed in 2019 by Craig Parker Adams.

    This is some of my favorite Zappa, and shows what he could accomplish when he put his (brilliant) mind to it, and eschewed satire. This is also a pretty good introduction to modern classical music, as Frank wears his influences on his sleeve, including: Edgard Varèse, Anton Webern, Igor Stravinsky, Pierre Boulez, Arnold Schoenberg and Olivier Messiaen. If you like ‘Orchestral Favorites’, the aforementioned composers are more than worth checking out. Who knows, it might expand you musical horizons…

  58. I think pmac posted the Soul Farm comp in a recent comment; if so, pmac, can you get me the year that Willie Harper did Why You Wanna Do It? All I can find online is the surely absurd date of 1965, when this clearly sounds like a 1970s production. Any info?

    1. That song was unreleased until the Soul Farm comp. There's some confusion over when it was recorded, but best guess is 1973 and with the Creole Beethoven, Wardell Quezergue producig it. A fantastic blog that no longer updates (but is still accessible - gee, that sounds sadly familiar), Home of the Groove, has some great info on Harper and on that particular track. Here's a link: https://homeofthegroove.blogspot.com/search?q=willie+harper

    2. Thanks tons! 1973 sounds about right for the sound of it. I'll check your link, too.

  60. So, the other day I said that I had no desire to create and maintain my own blog. Then curiosity got the better of me, and I started fooling around with Blogger. After a few hours and many four letter Anglo-Saxon words later, I have a blog. The format will pretty much be the same as the old False Memory Foam. Also, guest posts will be welcome (I’m looking at you pmac and you too, Farquhar).
