"Albert King, Live Wire / Blues Power"

ALBERT KING - LIVE WIRE/BLUES POWER Well the Blues is meant to be played live. It was never a genre for three minute radio songs. When Albert king signed at Stax he produced several hit singles beginning with "Laundromat Blues" and going on from there. This was his first live album- ever. He produced three recordings from it, this one and "Wednesday and Thursday Night in San Francisco". The latter two were not released until 1990 when the Stax label was ressurrected under the Fantasy organization. Albert plays a host of new material and reworkings for this LP. It was his first outing at the Fillmore where he was the headliner. He woos the young audience and introduces them to what the blues is all about. He opens the set with Herbie Hancock's "Watermelon Man", a tune he used for about a dozen years after this as his opening with his line "take off your shoes and slip them under the seat". He goes into the title track "Blues Power" from here. This a Talking Blues, a type that Albert excelled at. B.B. and Freddie never did any talking blues, Albert loved to talk! It is interesting that this type of blues originated in Appallacia with white players in the 1920s. Albert is the all time virtuoso of the talking blues witness "Matchbox", "Cold Feet" and others. This ten minute outing contains a comprehensive overview of his guitar style. It is very excellent and the tone of his guitar is fabulous. It of course has his signature stop break he first recorded at Chess in 1961 with "Won't Be Hangin Round". SRV used it in Texas Flood (Live)! This song has a lot of jargon that places Albert as an older player with a young audience, such as "Soda Fountain" and "Guys and Gals"..however, it's over their heads, they were into his guitar. The title "Blues Power" is of course the catch phrase of the sixties various "Powers" (Austen Powers!!) and like "Born Under A Bad Sign" (Age of Aquarius!!)these attempts at contemporizing the blues were lost in the fabulous guitar work outs. No one cared about the lyrics or content only the sound. Albert does a reworking of his first minor hit with King Records "Blues At Sunrise" with a small amount of Hendrix type feedback (he'd been doing this for a long time) and it's a great slow blues offering. He also does the closest thing to a slide riff he'd ever done with B.B. King's "Please Love Me". "Night Stomp" is an interesting reversal of the famous 9th chord runs he did in Overall Junction. He wrote this tune with the album's producer Al Jackson, Jr, the famous drummer of the MG's. He also wrote "Cold Feet" the talking blues, with Albert! The album closes with "Look Out" which was of course "Overall Junction" redone. This is interesting with the strange almost Buddy Guy bends he produced- it's different from anything he ever recorded. This is a classic recording. It was at a time when the blues revival of the sixties was waning and Jimi Hendrix (who played with Albert) had taken the blues to a new level of blues-rock. Albert became accepted as an innovator of modern urban blues with his soulful recordings for Stax records. However, live he always played traditional blues and often his set included tunes from the 1940s. Track Listings 1. Watermelon Man 2. Blues Power 3. Night Stomp 4. Blues at Sunrise 5. Please Love Me 6. Look Out

"B.B. King and Eric Clapton, Riding With The King"

B.B. King & Eric Clapton - Riding With The King - NOW OUT OF PRINT AND BECOMING TREMENDOUSLY RARE. FACTORY SEALED - OUT OF PRINT AND OUR LAST COPY FOREVER The potential for a collaboration between B.B. King and Eric Clapton is enormous, of course, and the real questions concern how it is organized and executed. This first recorded pairing between the 74-year-old King and the 55-year-old Clapton was put together in the most obvious way: Clapton arranged the session using many of his regular musicians, picked the songs, and co-produced with his partner Simon Climie. That ought to mean that King would be a virtual guest star rather than earning a co-billing, but because of Clapton's respect for his elder, it nearly works the other way around. The set list includes lots of King specialties - Ten Long Years, Three O'Clock Blues, Days of Old, When My Heart Beats Like a Hammer -as well as standards like Hold on I'm Coming and Come Rain or Come Shine, with some specially written and appropriate recent material thrown in, so King has reason to be comfortable without being complacent. The real danger is that Clapton will defer too much; though he can be inspired by a competing guitarist such as Duane Allman, he has sometimes tended to lean too heavily on accompanists such as Albert Lee and Mark Knopfler when working with them in concert. That danger is partially realized; as its title indicates, Riding With the King is more about King than it is about Clapton. But the two players turn out to have sufficiently complementary, if distinct, styles that Clapton's supportive role fills out and surrounds King's stinging single-string playing. (It's also worth noting that there are usually another two or three guitarists on each track.) -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Track Listings 1. Riding with the King 2. Ten Long Years 3. Key to the Highway 4. Marry You 5. Three O'Clock Blues 6. Help the Poor 7. I Wanna Be 8. Worried Life Blues 9. Days Of Old 10.

"B.B. King, Completely Well (last copy)"

MCA 24K CD "Last copy" Track Listings 1. So Excited 2. No Good 3. You're Losin' Me 4. What Happened 5. Confessin' the Blues 6. Key to My Kingdom 7. Crying Won't Help You 8. You're Mean 9. Thrill Is Gone -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Editorial Reviews Amazon.com essential recording One of B.B. King's first pop-inclined efforts, this CD features the support of rock- and blues-raised session players. King's progeny, in a sense. Keyboardist Al Kooper is the most notable, but it's guitarist Hugh McCracken who engages the master in a six-string duel on the jam "Cryin' Won't Help You Now/You're Mean." The album also contains King's breakthrough hit "The Thrill Is Gone." King didn't particularly enjoy the tune when he recorded it. But when he returned to the studio the next day to hear the strings that were added to sweeten its chorus in his absence, he was as taken by the transcendent, majestic sweep they lent his performance as the rest of the world was soon to be. Indeed, his visceral vocal and stinging guitar leads define the bittersweet aftertaste of lost love. While the sheen of the hit's production stands out among this album's cuts, the unvarnished emotion of its lyrics is what the blues is all about. --Ted Drozdowski From Grove Press Guide to Blues on CD King's exciting vocals and guitar are provided a sympathetic sounding board by respectful but not fawning young sessions- men. Points of interest include "The Thrill Is Gone," a Top Twenty hit, and the open-ended jam "Cryin' Won't Help You Now/You're Mean," which has his lordship stirring it up with uncredited guitarist Hugh McCracken. Lucky for everyone King steers clear of the Age of Aquarius funk then debasing the music of T-Bone Walker and other bluesmen cutting pop- slanted records in the late 1960s. -- © Frank John Hadley 1993

The title track is the most impressive and spontaneous number on this record despite its near-ten-minute length.

LOVE AND THEFT won the 2002 Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Folk Album. This Limited edition of LOVE AND THEFT included a bonus disc of 2 previously unreleased recordings from 1961 & 1963. Bob Dylan's career has always been about defying expectations. Accordingly he followed 1997's much-heralded TIME OUT OF MIND with a marked about-face. Where its predecessor was a bleak emotional landscape full of languid atmospheres, existential sentiments, and graveyard vocal delivery, LOVE AND THEFT finds Dylan much more energized and hopeful. Instead of swamp-like textures, we get sharp, cracking bar-band blues, and lissome ballads with a '20s/'30s feel. The old codger has never sounded more spry; after observing that "summer days and summer nights are gone," he follows up with "I know a place where there's still something going on." Elsewhere he's variously hunting bear, standing on a table to make a toast, burning down a house, and starting a new empire. The musical context for all this uproar is informed more heavily by Dylan's earliest Americana roots than anything other than his albums of traditional folk songs. Delta and Chicago blues are templates for many songs, while a few others even more anachronistically suggest a future for Dylan as ghost writer for Leon Redbone. The lyrics themselves are littered with quotes from/references to old blues tunes, but Dylan's classic non-linear structure and wild imagination allow him to transcend his influences even as he assimilates them. Editorial reviews Included in Magnet's 20 Best Albums of 2001. Magnet (12/01/2002) ...Gritty and immediate... CMJ (10/08/2001) ...The most striking thing about the album is Bob's singing, which possesses a ragged, almost sinister authority...but on the old-tyme numbers becomes a nonchalant croon... Mojo (10/01/2001) 4 stars out of 5 - ...A very good album... Q (10/01/2001) 9 out of 10 - ...Astonishing...It is the rare Dylan album recorded with his touring band, and the versatility and sympathy of this outfit...lets them stand proudly next to The Band as his finest accompanists... Spin (11/01/2001) 5 stars out of 5 - ...A stone-cold Dylan classic... Talk about bringing it all back home: Dylan veers into country, ragtime, vaudeville, deep blues, cocktail-lounge corn, the minstrel show and the kind of rockabilly he must have bashed out with his high school band more than forty years ago... Rolling Stone (09/27/2001) Ranked #2 in Mojo's Best [40] Albums of 2001. Mojo (01/01/2002) Ranked #6 Album of the Year in EW's Best of 2001.

"Bob Dylan, Mono Box Set - 180 Gram - 8 Albums (9 LPs) - Numbered - Limited Edition w MP3 download"

BOB DYLAN - MONO BOX SET - 180 GRAM ORIGINAL HEAVY VINYL Virgin Vinyl pressing for superior fidelity. The nicest thing you can do for your stylus and your ears -- the way music was meant to be heard. Numbered, Limited Edition Mono 180g 9LP Box Set! Bob Dylan's first eight groundbreaking albums are returning to the marketplace for the first time ever in a limited edition box set of newly mastered mono versions on fully analogue 180-gram vinyl. "The eight reissues - from his 1962 eponymous debut through 1967's John Wesley Harding - feature the original monarual mixes. Gone is the weird stereo separation that split voice, guitar, and harmonica into an unnaturally wide soundstage. Restored is the punchy bass that had been reduced in the original stereo mixes to meet limitations of early- to mid-60s stereo cartridge technology." - Greg Cahill, The Absolute Sound, Janaury 2011, Issue 209 "Dylan spent a lot of time supervising the original mono mixes, and these reissues accurately reflect his intentions." - Greg Cahill, The Absolute Sound, Janaury 2011, Issue 209 The Original Mono Recordings are comprised of these albums painstakingly reproduced from their first generation monaural mixes as the artist intended them to be heard: One channel of powerful sound, both direct and immediate. While stereo recordings had been available as early as the mid-1950s, mono was still the predominant - and often preferred - mode of recording and mixing by the top artists of the 1960s. As a result, artists like The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and Bob Dylan devoted their attention to the mono mixes, leaving the stereo mixing process to studio engineers. The Original Mono Recordings are accompanied by a deluxe booklet, featuring vintage photographs of Bob Dylan and an expansive essay from renowned author and critic - and longtime Dylan aficionado - Greil Marcus. Each disc in the set comes in its own individual jacket which faithfully replicates the original album artwork, complete with labels and stickers that were found on the original 1960s releases. Features: o Limited Edition o Numbered o Premium High Quality 180g vinyl pressing o 8 Albums (9LPs) o Mono o Deluxe 12x12" full color Booklet with vintage Bob Dylan photos o Individual LP jackets o Original labels & stickers replicated from 1960s releases o Pressed at RTI o Includes High Quality MP3 download of the entire set, including exclusive bonus track "Positively 4th Street," also in mono Selections: Bob Dylan - 1962 1.

"Buddy Guy, I Was Walking Through The Woods - 180 Gram"

BUDDY GUY - I Was Walking Through The Woods Factory Sealed LP is 180 Gram Heavy Vinyl Limited Edition pressing by MCA/Chess, Long Out of Print Buddy Guy's guitar style has influenced almost of all the legendary Rock n Roll and Blues musicians of our day. This album, originally issued as Chess CH 409, includes the seminal - The First Time I Met The Blues, the opening line of which gives the LP its title. A fiercely intense and powerful song, it typifies Guy's ferocious attack and, when first released, drew comparisons to the work of the young Robert Johnson. Though Junior Wells plays a subsidiary role on most of the album, his sensitive support can be heard (to good advantage on songs like - I Got A Strange Feeling - (a Willie Dixon song which Guy later re-arranged and re-recorded). The albums reception solidified Guy's reputation as a first-rate guitarist and singer, and freed him from earlier comparisons to B.B. King. It draws material from several different sessions recorded between 1960 and 1964, and while Kings influence can be heard in certain places, it's undeniable that Buddy guy, both as a singer and as a guitarist, established himself on this album as one of Chicago's premier - and most unique - modern bluesmen. Music critic, Michael Fremer, editor of The Tracking Angles and contributing editor for Stereophile, said about this MCA Heavy Vinyl re-mastered from the Original Analog Tapes (with no noise suppression or bass roll-off) that music erupts out of total silence from these thick 180 Gram Virgin Vinyl discs with a velvety smoothness, spaciousness, and ultra high resolution that stuns even the most committed CD die-hard. Slash-and-burn guitar solos are the specialty of this Chicago blues mainstay. Emerging in the late '60s, Buddy Guy staked his claim with a series of string-sizzlin sides for Chess. I Was Walking Through The Woods collects his best known hailstones and firestorms like "My Time After Awhile" and "Stone Crazy". -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Track Listings 1. Watch Yourself 2. Stone Crazy 3. I Found a True Love 4. First Time I Met the Blues 5. Let Me Love You Baby 6. No Lie 7. I Got a Strange Feeling 8. My Time After Awhile 9. Ten Years Ago 10.

Not only is this Dusty's finest work, it is unanimously acknowledged as one of the great soul albums. The secret is in the production. Jerry Wexler, Tommy Dowd, and Arif Mardin enlisted the Sweet Inspirations and the best Memphis session boys for vocal support. Dusty's selection of material is exemplary, choosing songs by Randy Newman, Mann/Weill, Goffin/King, and Bacharach/David. This should have made her an international megastar; instead it scraped the US Top 100, failed to chart in the UK, and started her slow decline. It is a faultless record on which we have, thankfully, now recognized she was far too ahead of her time for her own good. Editorial reviews ...most of the songs...have a great deal of depth while presenting extremely direct and simple statements about love....Dusty sings around her material, creating music that's evocative rather than overwhelming... Rolling Stone (11/01/1969) ...It's her shining moment and just might be one of the all-time great pop albums. - Rating: A Entertainment Weekly (03/12/1999) ...her lighter-than-air voice carries the album aloft... - Rating: B+ Entertainment Weekly (10/09/1992) 3 Stars - Good - ...balances R&B and sensitive pop dramas... Q (03/01/1995) Ranked #54 in NME's list of the `Greatest Albums Of All Time.' NME (10/02/1993) Ranked #3 in Rolling Stone's Women In Rock: The 50 Essential Albums - ...[A] British soul masterpiece...

    "Eddie Harris, Theme From Exodus & Other Films - 180 Gram"

    180 Gram Limited Edition Analog Virgin Vinyl. Eddie Harris would be in that group of jazz artists called Ghetto Jazz...background music playing on the stereo or juke box in some hole-in-the wall bar and grill or after-hours spot. Eddie would be played, so would greats like Jimmy Smith, Jimmy Mcgriff, Wes Montgomery, Bro Ray Charles, early Crusaders... Accessible and grooving tunes that are not too far out of reach to us commoners... Born in Chicago in 1934, Eddie Harris gained popular success for his 1961 jazz adaptation of Ernest Gold's theme to the feature motion picture Exodus, for which he became the first jazz musician to release a gold-selling record, the acclaimed Exodus To Jazz. Strongly criticized by purists for his commercially successful take on jazz, he responded with a series of albums that crowned him the king of electric Varitone sax the most important of which was 1967's The Electrifying Eddie Harris. This LP presents a series of film themes revisited by this genius of pop jazz which include the above mentioned "Exodus" and some immortal flick tunes like "Moon River", "Spartacus" and "Gone With The Wind". Selections: 1. Exodus 2. Green Dolphin Street 3. Moon River 4. Pocket Full Of Miracles 5. Spartacus 6. Never On Sunday 7. Lawrence Of Arabia 8. Tonight 9. Laura 10. El Cid 11. Gone With The Wind

    "Frank Zappa, Later Works - OBI Box Set - 6 CDs"

    FRANK ZAPPA - LATER WORKS - Japanese OBI MINI REPLICA LP TITLES making a 6 CD Box Set - WITH BONUS COLLECTORS BOX Japanese OBI MINI REPLICA BOX SET Japanese re-mastered Mini LP replica Limited Edition Collection Recorded from the finest Original Masters available. Each title Comes with anti-static sleeves similar to Vinyl LPs, Cardboard packaging exact to the original LP, plastic wrap cases for protection of each collectible Actual miniaturized version of the 12" LP in 4" CD version Special VERY RARE LIMITED EDITION BOX SET ONLY PRODUCED ON FUTURES FOR THIS ONE TIME PRESSING -- were only available in Japan. Limited Japanese FRANK ZAPPA/LATER WORKS box includes A BONUS ADDITIONAL BOX PLUS THESE 6 Japanese OBI MINI REPLICA LP'S. - DOES HUMOR BELONG IN MUSIC - Originally released only in Europe without permission, Does Humor Belong In Music? was reworked by Zappa and released with much more material on CD. A snapshot of Zappa's 1984 band, this live album showcases the pared-down group's energy and ability on a set of concert favorites (with a few special oddities thrown in for good measure). The opening version of the instrumental "Zoot Allures" is one of the best takes on that song released on CD, and the closing "Whippin' Post" finds Zappa trading guitar licks with his son Dweezil. Often overshadowed by some of his other touring ensembles, this group--featuring Chad Wackerman, Scott Thunes, Bobby Martin, Allan Zavod and the dual frontmen of Ike Willis and Ray White-is distinctive and talented, and their performances on songs like "Let's Move to Cleveland" and "What's New in Baltimore" are essential to any Zappa collection. --Andrew Boscardin From the Label "Does Humor Belong in Music?"....like, you had to ask? This live album of highlights from the 1984 tour was originally released in Europe only, and has now been made available here with a spiffy new Cal Schenkel cover replacing the crummy graphics of the import (for you hardcore collectors, the performances are totally different from the ones on the video of the same name). The material is a good cross-section of FZ's sets at the time, opening with a majestic "Zoot Allures" and moving through the topical "Hot-Plate Heaven at the Green Hotel" (making its recorded debut); and the instrumental solo showpiece "Let's Move to Cleveland," plus a discreet bit of doggerel called "Cock-Suckers' Ball" that's appeared nowhere else (FZ learned this one off a bootleg tape by a '50s doo-wop outfit). For the finale, there's an encore version of "Whippin' Post" featuring Dweezil on guitar. This was the last song from the last show of what Zappa intended to be his last tour, though he hit the road one more time in 1988. PLAYGROUND PSYCHOTICS (2CD'S) - You wanted more old Mothers, you got 'em: This "archival" double CD, originally released in 1992, features performances and assorted dialogue snippets from the early 70s version of The Mothers, recorded onstage at NYC's Fillmore East, UCLA's Pauley Pavilion and The Rainbow Theatre in London, and offstage in various locales. This was the Flo & Eddie version of the band, with the ex-Turtles lending their quintessential California harmonies to some of the Mothers' funniest moments as well as their most straight-ahead rockers. Of special interest is the John Lennon & Yoko Ono guest appearance at The Fillmore in 1971. It had been Lennon's first onstage appearance in nearly two years and his last for a long while, performing the blues standard "Well (Baby Please Don't Go)" and a long jam during which Yoko was tied up in a sack. This performance was heard in excerpted form on Lennon/Ono's album SOMETIME IN NEW YORK CITY; now it can finally be heard in context. Track Listings Disc: 1 1. Here Comes the Gear, Lads [Live] 2.

Assembled from a series of sold-out performances in Germany by the Ensemble Moderne, the set includes re-workings of old favorites like "The Dog Breath Variations" and "Uncle Meat," live arrangements of some of his hairiest computer music like "The Girl in the Magnesium Dress" and "G-Spot Tornado" and new works by Zappa composed specifically for the event. The performances are astonishing and the music? Pure Zappa The 26-member Ensemble Modern performs FZ's 'most-humanly-impossible-to-play' compositions. Piano duets, string quintets & small ballets. Simply exquisite, with a 60-page booklet to explain it all. Originally released in 1993, it stayed on the classical chart for most of `94. Includes the tracks 'Outrage At Valdez,' 'None Of The Above,' & 'Welcome To The United States', plus arrangements of some of the most fiendishly difficult pieces from FZ's back catalogue & even a 'greatest hit' or two (some would pick this as the definitive version of 'Dog Breath Variations').

G-Spot Tornado THE LOST EPISODES - Frank Zappa personally compiled this new Rykodisc collection of studio rarities, alternate versions, and unreleased tracks as one of his last projects -- not only as a way of paying tribute to many of the people who had affected his life but also as a gesture of appreciation to his fans. Assembled as a kind of after-hours project over 18 months in 1992 and 1993, THE LOST EPISODES includes 30 tracks spanning 1958-1972, with short detours to 1980 and 1992. Tracks of particular note include "Ronny's Booger Story" and "Kenny's Booger Story," which shed new light on the (ahem) incidents which inspired "Let's Make the Water Turn Black," an early, jazz samba arrangement of "Take Your Clothes Off When You Dance," "Lil' Clanton Shuffle," a blues jam left off 1969's HOT RATS which features Sugar Cane Harris on violin, original recordings of such Zappa gems as "RDNZL" and "Inca Roads," the 1980 single version of "I Don't Wanna Get Drafted," and five tracks featuring the vocal stylings of Don Van Vliet (aka Captain Beefheart) including one of the earliest Zappa-Beefheart studio collaborations, "Tiger Roach." TLE's cover art is by Gabor Csupo, founder of Klasky-Csupo Animation, the people who originally animated The Simpsons and now bring you Duckman and Rugrats. Packaged in a deluxe slipcase, the album is accompanied by a 52-page booklet with extensive liner notes by music journalist Rip Rense, including detailed commentary about each song derived from interviews with Zappa, engineer Spencer Chrislu, and a plethora of FZ's musical associates including Vliet, Ruth Underwood, Terry Bozzio, and James "Motorhead" Sherwood. Both Rense and Csupo contributed to this package at Zappa's request. From his early rock combos of the late 50's to the primitive early-60's Studio Z era, through the state-of-the-art Utility Muffin Research Kitchen to just about anywhere else FZ ever turned on a tape recorder, THE LOST EPISODES is an autobiographical glimpse behind the scenes of Zappa's long and varied recording career and a fascinating look at one of "popular music's most brilliant -- and daunting -- figures" (Chicago Sun-Times). If you want to know the story of the time Zappa shared a stage with Louis Armstrong, if you want to hear FZ's Clio Award-winning music for a 1967 Luden's Cough Drop commercial, or if you simply want to know the meaning of the word "eructation," THE LOST EPISODES is the disc you need.

Lil' Clanton Shuffle 29. I Don't Wanna Get Drafted 30. Sharleena HAVE I OFFENDED SOMEONE- Although Zappa did not provide notes with the Offended? master tape, this compilation could be considered his idea of a "Best Of," and indeed, this collection features many of the tunes that first attracted legions of fans to his music. The aforementioned "Valley Girl," with vocals by daughter Moon Unit, was Zappa's highest charting US single ever, reaching #32 in Billboard and earned Grammy nominations for Moon and FZ (his second), while the accompanying album, 1982's Ship Arriving Too Late To Save A Drowning Witch, reached #23. But despite the commercial acclaim of the single and album, Zappa's ironic sensibilities were lost on the public and the media. Said Zappa in an interview with Josef Woodard, "The worst thing about that record is the fact that nobody really listened to it... The whole coverage of the song barely mentioned what the song was really saying, that these people are really airheads." Nevertheless, the song's success triggered a movement of sorts, with "Valley Girl" T-shirts, lunch boxes, cosmetics, and offers for a TV series and a film (eventually made without Zappa's participation). A few years earlier, Zappa's 1979 album Sheik Yerbouti (which spawned the US hit "Dancin' Fool," a depiction of the male of the species in a disco frenzy) also contained two of his most razor-sharp and funny portrayals, "Jewish Princess" and "Bobby Brown Goes Down," both of which are included on Have I Offended Someone? Both songs sparked controversy. "Jewish Princess" brought a protest from the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith, who asked the FCC to ban it from radio airplay. Zappa said the song was satire, threatened to sue, and refused to apologize. He's quoted in The Real Frank Zappa Book as saying, "...unlike The Unicorn, such creatures do exist--and deserve to be commemorated with their own special opus." "Bobby Brown Goes Down" is perhaps the oddest of Zappa's successes. This colorful tale of a young man's encounter with a dyke named Freddie" would never get airplay in the US, but it reached the top ofthe charts in Norway and Austria, was Top Ten in Germany and remains a favorite in territories where English is not the primary language. Said Zappa to Matt Groening in a 1992 Guitar World interview, "I don't think anything has outsold Sheik Yerbouti, partly because "Bobby Brown" keeps becoming a hit every ten years... I think it was back on the charts again in Norway. For no apparent reason, it was back." Have I Offended Someone? also contains two previously unreleased live versions of popular tunes: "Tinsel Town Rebellion," Zappa's picture of music business execs and musicians joined in an insincere tango in Hollywood ("Did you know that in Tinsel Town the people there think substance is a bore/But if your New Wave group looks good they'll hurry on back for more... But then again this system works as perfect as a dream/It works for all those record company pricks who come to skim the cream") and "Dumb All Over," Zappa's scathing rap on televangelists, and one of the most remarkable performances included here.But Have I Offended Someone? is more than great music and humorous lyrics; this collection illuminates Frank Zappa's fearlessness in dealing with "sensitive" subjects and underscores his courage in refusing to back down for fear of media, corporate, political or religious censorship or disapproval. His year-long campaign in the mid-80s fighting the PMRC and album rating stickers is well documented, particularly in the "Porn Wars" chapter of The Real Frank Zappa Book. His dedication to the cause of artistic liberty is examplified by his testimony before the Maryland State Legislature, which opened with these words: "It is my personal feeling that lyrics cannot harm anyone. There is no sound that you can make with your mouth, or word that will come out of your mouth, that is so powerful that it will make you go to hell."As Ed Sanders' liner notes for Offended? point out, "It is clear from my decades with the Fugs that there are oodles of humans out there who thirst for the lascivious chants of Have I Offended Someone?... I also know there will be oodles who will listen askance at this gathering of the Zappa legacy." The selections included here are bound to provoke negative reactions from many quarters--potentially offended parties being women, men, gays, jews, catholics, musicians, music business executives, the religious right and the French. It should be noted, however, that Zappa steadfastly defended freedom of speech for 30 years, persistently writing songs about sensitive (but truthful) issues, even in the face of attack and criticism ("rock" and otherwise).Oh yes, about "rock criticism." Zappa never shied away from saying what he really thought about rock critics. His most famous quote on the subject is included in the chapter entitled "Sticks & Stones" in The Real Frank Zappa Book; "Definition of rock journalism: People who can't write, doing interviews with people who can't think, in order to prepare articles for people who can't read." Limited edition Japanese-only box set containing several of Frank Zappa's later works, all housed in miniature LP sleeves. These are Japanese digitally re-mastered Mini LP replica CDs (the OBI Edition). This Limited Edition Collection has only VERY FEW made world-wide and are immediately Out of Print.

Sharleena HAVE I OFFENDED SOMEONE- Although Zappa did not provide notes with the Offended? master tape, this compilation could be considered his idea of a "Best Of," and indeed, this collection features many of the tunes that first attracted legions of fans to his music. The aforementioned "Valley Girl," with vocals by daughter Moon Unit, was Zappa's highest charting US single ever, reaching #32 in Billboard and earned Grammy nominations for Moon and FZ (his second), while the accompanying album, 1982's Ship Arriving Too Late To Save A Drowning Witch, reached #23. But despite the commercial acclaim of the single and album, Zappa's ironic sensibilities were lost on the public and the media. Said Zappa in an interview with Josef Woodard, "The worst thing about that record is the fact that nobody really listened to it... The whole coverage of the song barely mentioned what the song was really saying, that these people are really airheads." Nevertheless, the song's success triggered a movement of sorts, with "Valley Girl" T-shirts, lunch boxes, cosmetics, and offers for a TV series and a film (eventually made without Zappa's participation). A few years earlier, Zappa's 1979 album Sheik Yerbouti (which spawned the US hit "Dancin' Fool," a depiction of the male of the species in a disco frenzy) also contained two of his most razor-sharp and funny portrayals, "Jewish Princess" and "Bobby Brown Goes Down," both of which are included on Have I Offended Someone? Both songs sparked controversy. "Jewish Princess" brought a protest from the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith, who asked the FCC to ban it from radio airplay. Zappa said the song was satire, threatened to sue, and refused to apologize. He's quoted in The Real Frank Zappa Book as saying, "...unlike The Unicorn, such creatures do exist--and deserve to be commemorated with their own special opus." "Bobby Brown Goes Down" is perhaps the oddest of Zappa's successes. This colorful tale of a young man's encounter with a dyke named Freddie" would never get airplay in the US, but it reached the top ofthe charts in Norway and Austria, was Top Ten in Germany and remains a favorite in territories where English is not the primary language. Said Zappa to Matt Groening in a 1992 Guitar World interview, "I don't think anything has outsold Sheik Yerbouti, partly because "Bobby Brown" keeps becoming a hit every ten years... I think it was back on the charts again in Norway. For no apparent reason, it was back." Have I Offended Someone? also contains two previously unreleased live versions of popular tunes: "Tinsel Town Rebellion," Zappa's picture of music business execs and musicians joined in an insincere tango in Hollywood ("Did you know that in Tinsel Town the people there think substance is a bore/But if your New Wave group looks good they'll hurry on back for more... But then again this system works as perfect as a dream/It works for all those record company pricks who come to skim the cream") and "Dumb All Over," Zappa's scathing rap on televangelists, and one of the most remarkable performances included here.But Have I Offended Someone? is more than great music and humorous lyrics; this collection illuminates Frank Zappa's fearlessness in dealing with "sensitive" subjects and underscores his courage in refusing to back down for fear of media, corporate, political or religious censorship or disapproval. His year-long campaign in the mid-80s fighting the PMRC and album rating stickers is well documented, particularly in the "Porn Wars" chapter of The Real Frank Zappa Book. His dedication to the cause of artistic liberty is examplified by his testimony before the Maryland State Legislature, which opened with these words: "It is my personal feeling that lyrics cannot harm anyone. There is no sound that you can make with your mouth, or word that will come out of your mouth, that is so powerful that it will make you go to hell."As Ed Sanders' liner notes for Offended? point out, "It is clear from my decades with the Fugs that there are oodles of humans out there who thirst for the lascivious chants of Have I Offended Someone?... I also know there will be oodles who will listen askance at this gathering of the Zappa legacy." The selections included here are bound to provoke negative reactions from many quarters--potentially offended parties being women, men, gays, jews, catholics, musicians, music business executives, the religious right and the French. It should be noted, however, that Zappa steadfastly defended freedom of speech for 30 years, persistently writing songs about sensitive (but truthful) issues, even in the face of attack and criticism ("rock" and otherwise).Oh yes, about "rock criticism." Zappa never shied away from saying what he really thought about rock critics. His most famous quote on the subject is included in the chapter entitled "Sticks & Stones" in The Real Frank Zappa Book; "Definition of rock journalism: People who can't write, doing interviews with people who can't think, in order to prepare articles for people who can't read." Limited edition Japanese-only box set containing several of Frank Zappa's later works, all housed in miniature LP sleeves.

    "Jeff Beck - 6 Titles (8 LPs) - 180 Gram Collection"

    THIS COLLECTION STARTS WITH THE OUT OF PRINT U.K. SIMPLY VINYL PRESSING OF Jeff Beck's Blow By Blow - 180 Gram Limited Edition Simply Vinyl classic LP (made in England - has the best protective packaging I've seen - heavy quality sleeves) high-definition Virgin Vinyl pressing for superior fidelity. THERE ARE 6 TITLES IN THE COLLECTION WITH A TOTAL OF 8 PIECES OF VINYL - READ ON FOR THE TOTAL OF THE COLLECTION THIS IS A ONE AND ONLY COLLECTION. ONCE SOLD GONE FOREVER - Collectors Alert: Many of these Simply Vinyl Titles will never be available again. Their license to produce these 180 Gram Masterpieces with Universal Records International has Ended. This means that this specific title is now out of print forever and there are very few remaining is sealed condition. This title is going to skyrocket in value & price over the next few months. So Don't Miss Out on being one of the last people to own this outstanding pressing. This is one the last pressing you will ever see at this price. The Simply Vinyl Silver Collection is currently the only way a collector can identify if these U.K. Abbey Road Studio pressings are Out of Print First Generation copies of some of the finest heavy vinyl masterpieces ever made. Mymusicfix has an exclusive list of these Silver Edition titles you will not find at any Audiophile Vinyl Dealer anywhere (Silver Collection refers to the marketing sticker attached on the front and back of the sealed product - not the Second Generation and beyond Gold Stickers). His guitar-slinging contributions to the Yardbirds having dwarfed those of Eric Clapton or Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck spent the next several years playing blues-rock (the Jeff Beck Group with Rod Stewart), soul-rock (the second edition of that band), and leading a power trio. Then, he made this all-instrumental album, which was a huge 1975 success. BLOW BY BLOW - Produced by George Martin, the nine-song session finds Beck fronting a keyboards-bass-drums outfit, augmented by some tastefully unobtrusive string arrangements. Call it a jazz-fusion album at your own risk. While Beck's playing is less in-your-face than his previous efforts, all the fierce attack, thick tone, microtonal bends, distortion, feedback, vibrato, sustain, sonic hoodoo, and rhythmic and harmonic creativity that the man's fans have come to know and love can be heard here. "Freeway Jam" boasts the most memorable melody and thus remains a Classic Rock staple to this day. "Cause We've Ended As Lovers"--written by Stevie Wonder--is Beck's gorgeous tribute to one of his own guitar-heroes, the now-deceased Roy Buchanan. Selections: 1. You Know What I Mean 2. She's A Woman 3. Constipated Duck 4. Air Blower 5. Scatterbrain 6. Cause We've Ended As Lovers 7. Thelonius 8. Freeway Jam 9. Diamond Dust NEXT IN THIS COLLECTION IS THE TREMENDOUSLY RARE LONG OUT OF PRINT 1997 EMI 1ST CENTENARY U.K. PRESSED VINYL COLLECTION OF JEFF BECK - BECK -OLA THIS PRESSING IS DIRECT METAL MASTERED - VIRGIN VINYL - WITH HEAVY QUALITY SLEEVES - These FOREIGN pressings are sent with the vinyl outside of the jackets when being shipped to the U.S. to protect the covers from damage. Once inside the our wherehouse we then protectively seal the title in a loose re-sealable plastic cover to ensure the quality of the product. This title is brand new & never played condition. Don't Miss out BECAUSE THIS TITLE IS NOW CURRENTLY OUT OF PRINT AND COULD BE GONE FOREVER. BECK-OLA If the Jeff Beck Group's 1968 debut, "Truth" is the blueprint for Led Zeppelin's debut as well as much of what we might call hard rock or metal through the '70s (Van Halen, etc) and beyond, "Beck-Ola," the 1969 followup is savage, malevelont, and chaotic, albeit less accessable. Certainly the more calculating Jimmy Page never put out anything quite so raw, in every sense of the word. The edgy quality makes it no surprise that the amazing lineup - Beck, Ron Wood, Rod Stewart, Nicky Hopkins, and in place of Mick Waller, drummer Tony Newman - broke up three months after its completion. Beck has switched to a '54 Stratocaster, and "Beck-Ola" suggests Led Zeppelin having a showdown with the Stooges circa "Funhouse." Wood and Stewart wrote most of the material, and it is here that Stewart's songwriting voice (his humor especially) is first evident (check "Spanish Boots"). In the same vein as TRUTH, albeit minus quieter moments like "Ol' Man River", "Morning Dew" and "Greensleeves", BECK-OLA is a rip-roaring, nearly perfect hard rock follow up. Once again, Stewart's signature vocal style steals much of the show, as he is simply amazing on every track in which he appears. Energetic covers of "All Shook Up" and "Jailhouse Rock" (the latter with some particularly superb piano) stand alongside some of Beck's finest original hard rockers "Spanish Boots" and "Plynth", with riffs that would have made Zeppelin proud. The ever-present Zep connection continues with the epic closing cut "Rice Pudding", anchored by its larger-than-life riff and multi-layered, shifting guitar solos (especially the soaring slide segment). BECK-OLA was to be his last consistent work for six years, until the arrival of the very different BLOW BY BLOW. This album is highly recommended to fans of Beck, Stewart, the early metal/Zep sound and hard rock in general. Track Listings 1. All Shook Up 2. Spanish Boots 3. Girl from Mill Valley 4. Jailhouse Rock 5. Plynth (Water Down the Drain) 6. Hangman's Knee 7. Rice Pudding EMOTION & COMMOTION - The guitar virtuoso returns with his first album of new material in seven years featuring guest vocalists Joss Stone, Imelda May and Olivia Save. With his performance at the 2010 Grammy Awards ceremonies, one of the few British winners on a night dominated by Americans, Beck underlined his legendary status as one of the most revered musicians in the world and performed Les Paul's How High The Moon with Irish singer Imelda May. Imelda also appears on Beck's long-time-comin' studio album, "Emotion & Commotion", as a featured artist on the track "Lilac Wine". Beck is one of the UK's true music heroes, a visionary musician and guitar god admired by everyone from Eric Clapton to Morrissey. "Making this record took me back to the feeling I had making Blow By Blow." - Jeff Beck "...both collaborations with British soul singer Joss Stone catch fire, and "Lilac Wine" with Imelda May is as memorable as Jeff Buckley's version... The sonics are full, with rich textures, as befits so much variety and color." - Jeff Wilson, The Absolute Sound, June/July 2010 issue, pg. 126. Features: o HQ-180g Premium Vinyl Pressing o Gatefold jacket o Pressed at RTI Selections: 1. Corpus Christi Carol 2. Hammerhead 3. Never Alone 4. Over the Rainbow 5. I Put a Spell On You (feat. Joss Stone) 6. Nessun Dorma 7. Serene (feat. Olivia Safe) 8. Lilac Wine (feat. Imelda May) 9. There's No Other Me (feat. Joss Stone) 10. Elegy For Dunkirk (feat. Olivia Safe) LIVE AT RONNIE SCOTT'S - DOUBLE LP SET - Jeff Beck is a true rock legend. From his time with the Yardbirds in the sixties, through the Jeff Beck Group and throughout his solo career his unique guitar style and constant desire to explore new musical areas and sounds has won him the admiration of his peers and the adoration of legions of fans. In 2007 Jeff Beck performed a series of concerts at the renowned Ronnie Scott's club in London. They became the must have ticket of the year with a packed audience every night of the famous and the fans. This album features performances recorded across the different nights and presents the best version of each track. Backed by bassist Tal Wilkenfeld, drummer Vinnie Colaiuta, and keyboardist Jason Rebello, Beck presents 16 genre-spanning songs, incorporating Blues, Boogie, Ballads, Bolero, Rock and Jazz. His unique interpretation of the Beatles' tune is just one example of the brilliance of this guitar virtuoso. "An absolutely jaw-dropping display of the most exciting, imaginative and inspirational jazz-rock guitar witnessed in years." - Jazzwise "Perhaps the greatest living guitar virtuoso...Combining astonishing technique with a blissful nuance he exercised an almost supernatural control of his fretboard." - The Times - 4 Stars Features: o 180g Double Limited Edition Vinyl o Gatefold Jacket o Includes download code for digital version of full album. (Offer expires 5/31/2011) Selections: 1. Beck's Bolero 2. Eternity's Breath 3. Stratus 4. Cause We've Ended As Lovers 5. Behind The Veil 6. You Never Know 7. Nadia 8. Blast From the East 9. Led Boots 10. Angel (Footsteps) 11. Scatterbrain 12. Medley: Goodbye Pork Pie Hat / Brush With the Blues 13. Space Boogie 14. Big Block 15. A Day In the Life 16. Where Were You THE BEST OF THE YARDBIRDS - DOUBLE LP SET - Includes 24 tracks taken from the Giorgio Gomelsky tapes (their manager and producer) between 1963 and 1966. Includes their biggest hits along with many rarities, outtakes and live tracks. Gatefold Jacket. Tremendously rare 2 180 Gram LP set. Track Listings 1. Too Much Monkey Business 2. Baby What's Wrong 3. Boom Boom 4. Talkin' 'Bout You 5. I Wish You Would 6. A Certain Girl 7. Putty 8. Sweet Music 9. I Ain't Done Wrong 10. My Girl Sloopy 11. Steeled Blues 12. Train Kept A-Rollin' 13. For Your Love 14. Heart Full Of Soul 15. I'm A Man 16. Still I'm Sad 17. Shapes Of Things 18. You're A Better Man Than I 19. Questa Volta 20. Paff...Bum 21. Jeff's Blues 22. Someone To Love 23. XYZ 24. Stroll On PLUS THE BONUS OF DONOVAN & THE JEFF BECK GROUP BARABAJAGAL - 140 GRAM U.S. PRESSING - Aside from the obvious mainstream track ("Atlantis"), this record is solid, and represents, in my mind, what Donovan should have done his entire career. The collaborations between himself and the Jeff Beck group are brilliant rockers, and are sure to get stuck in your head "Trudi," "Pamela Jo," and "Barabajagal" are all sing-along worthy, "To Susan on the West Coast Waiting" is a slower number you really have to "listen" to understand and appreciate. "Superlungs, my Supergirl" is superb for rocking out to, with its subtle, yet striking horn section. "The Love Song," "I Love my Shirt," and the rest of the tracks (save for "Where is She") are Donovan.

    "Jimi Hendrix, BLUES (Black Vinyl) - 200 Gram - CURRENTLY OUT OF STOCK "

    Classic 200 Gram LP. - Currently Out of Print Jimi Hendrix was one fine blues guitarist. Combining the fluid lines of B.B. King with the spikiness of Hubert Sumlin and the crying tone of Elmore James, Hendrix manages to both honor the music tradition while remaining uniquely himself. This is an excellent blues collection throughout. On top of this, I don't think any of this material is available anywhere else. Jimi Hendrix had many talents and could play in many different styles. He is as good a blues player as he is anything else. Here he takes blues standards and updates them in his own style. This material wasn't originally intended for commercial release, but has been remastered well enough to make an amazing LP. While Hendrix remains most famous for his hard rock and psychedelic innovations, more than a third of his recordings were blues-oriented. This LP contains 11 blues originals and covers, eight of which were previously unreleased. Recorded between 1966 and 1970, they feature the master guitarist stretching the boundaries of electric blues in both live and studio settings. Besides several Hendrix blues-based originals, it includes covers of Albert King and Muddy Waters classics, as well as a 1967 acoustic version of his composition "Hear My Train A-Comin'." - Richie Unterberger -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Track Listings 1.

    "John Coltrane, Ballads - Factory Sealed MFSL Gold CD"

    Ballads - Factory Sealed MFSL Gold CD Track listing 1. Say It (Over And Over Again) 2. You Don't Know What Love Is 3. Too Young To Go Steady 4. All Or Nothing At All 5. I Wish I Knew 6. What's New 7. It's Easy To Remember 8. Nancy (With The Laughing Face) Producer: Bob Thiele Distributor: Koch (Distributor USA) Recording type: Studio Recording mode: Stereo John Coltrane Quartet: John Coltrane (tenor saxophone); McCoy Tyner (piano); Jimmy Garrison, Reggie Workman (bass); Elvin Jones (drums). Recorded at the Van Gelder Studio, Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey between December 21, 1961 and November 13, 1962. During the early '60s, the contentious critical reaction to John Coltrane's music got so over-the-top that some reactionaries branded his work with Eric Dolphy as "anti-jazz." Having already recorded the exploratory AFRICA/BRASS and LIVE AT THE VILLAGE VANGUARD, Coltrane went along with producer Bob Thiele's suggestion that he do an album of BALLADS to silence nay-sayers once and for all. BALLADS, DUKE ELLINGTON & JOHN COLTRANE and JOHN COLTRANE AND JOHNNY HARTMAN for a triptych of "traditional" recordings, italicizing the saxophonist's ability to swing in a classic vein, while underscoring his sensitivity as a ballad player. He even managed to impress the moldy fig who penned the original liner notes to BALLADS. From the gentle opening strains of "Say It (Over And Over Again)," the saxophonist imparts all the tender yearning and romantic empathy of a mature, compassionate adult. Given his predilection for technical complexities, Coltrane avoids any hint of emotional grandstanding, allowing only for subtle melodic embellishments. On "You Don't Know What Love Is" and "What's New" he displays a glorious tone, achieving a remarkably human vocal timbre in the upper registers, indulging in more pronounced harmonic variations, as the Tyner-Garrison-Jones rhythm axis subtly shifts gears to accomodate these intricacies. Without straying far from the basic themes or giving in to cheap sentiment, the saxophonist sustains a gorgeous melodic focus throughout BALLADS, marking this recital as another John Coltrane masterpiece. Reviews 4 Stars - Excellent - ...a hard, unfaltering attack and furiously intense, extended improvisations that bordered on free-jazz. BALLADS was a timely reminder of the tenor saxophonist's matchless lyricism and exquisite tone... Q (10/01/1995) 4 Stars - Very Good - ...BALLADS...has always been about the celebration of pitch and melody. The band...hadn't played any of the tunes prior, but its proficiency leaned toward perfection. Down Beat (11/01/1995)

SAINTS AND SINNERS RAISIN CAIN CAPTURED LIVE - There has never been a blues guitarist like him before, or after. The guitar playing between Johnny and Floyd Ratford always seemed to compliment each other to an extreme. Truly amazing are the guitar solos being played at the same time , on top of each other, but without using harmony, yet blending and complimenting each others licks in 2 completely different styles, rather than trying to out do each other. The blues licks played on "Sweet Papa John" was and still is one of the hottest blues guitar examples of any age. I know there are lots of inspirational bluesmen out there, Stevie Ray Vaughan , Clapton, B.B. King ,Freddie King, Buddy Guy...etc.. the list could go on forever.

    "Johnny Winter, Captured Live"

    Born and raised in Beaumont, Texas in the 1940s and surrounded by the blues, country, and Cajun music, Johnny Winter and his younger brother Edgar began their careers as kids, performing songs together and winning talent shows and spots on local TV. Before they were even teens, the two brothers traveled to New York to explore their options, and gained exposure to the rock 'n' roll and rhythm & blues of the period which also influenced them profoundly. There has never been a blues guitarist like him before, or after. The guitar playing between Johnny and Floyd Ratford always seemed to compliment each other to an extreme.
