(1980 / FLYRIGHT) 16 tracks. 1954-1977. The Inspiration for all the recordings on this album was the music of Memphis and the mid-south in the 50s. One side rocks like mad, the other side is plaintively raw country. Some of these are new recordings, some are real oldies, most have not been issued before. All of them excited me into putting them on this album. So...let´s Get With It. (Martin Hawkins)
(2016/Rox Vox) 13 tracks, legendary radio recordings Seven years on from their iconic Last Waltz in San Francisco. Rick Danko, Levon Helm, Garth Hudson and Richard Manuel reunited, performing (with backup from the Cate Brothers) to rapturous receptions in the US and Canada. Manuel in particular was on better from than he´d been for years, as the band iore through a selection of classics from their back catalog, as well as the new track Jaca Blues, and numerous oldies they´d played during their long apprenticeship. This remarkable set was broadcast on WXRT-FM at the outset of their reunion, and is presented here with background notes and images.
One of the great literary classics of Western literature and the only published novel written by Oscar Wilde. The Picture of Dorian Gray created great controversy on publication because of its homosexual undertones, and was later used as evidence against him at his trial at the Old Bailey in 1895.´´If it were I who was to be always young, and the picture that was to grow old...I would give my soul for that!´´ The wish uttered by Dorian Gray as he gazes on his portrait forms the basis of this story, of a gilded and spoilt hedonist who is willing to sell his soul for his beauty.Please note: This is a vintage recording. The audio quality may not be up to modern day standards. 1. Language: English. Narrator: David Brown. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/rnib/000001de/bk_rhde_002536_sample.mp3.

(2002/BGO) 24 tracks. Originally released in 1960 on the Top Rank label, these albums are commanding prices of £25 and £65 each respectively on the current collectors’ market. Born in Windsor, Ontario, Jack Scott (born Jack Scafone, Jr., January 28, 1936) moved to the outskirts of Detroit when he was ten years old. At 18, he formed the Southern Drifters and after leading the band for three years, he signed to ABC as a solo artist in 1957. Over the next year, he released a handful of singles for the label, before moving to Carlton Records the following year. His double-A-sided debut for Carlton, ‘My True Love’/’Leroy’, became a huge hit, with the first song peaking at No. 3 and the latter at No. 11; it also became a Top Ten hit in England. During the next two years, Scott had a number of minor hits for Carlton, highlighted by the No. 8 hit ‘Goodbye Baby’(autumn 1958). On most of these tracks, the Chantones provided vocal support. Late in 1959, he signed with Top Rank. His first single for the label, ‘What In The World’s Come Over You’, became a No. 5 hit early in 1960. It was followed by the No. 3 single ‘Burning Bridges’. Over the next two years, his singles progressively charted at lower positions than their predecessors, and early in 1961, he signed with Capitol Records Scott continued to vacillate between cowboy crooner and rough-edged rocker throughout the remainder of the ‘60s and ‘70s, recording for a variety of labels. In 1974, he had a minor country hit with ‘You’re Just Gettin’ Better’. During the ‘80s and ‘90s, Scott occasionally turned up on the oldies circuit, still looking and sounding like a man you seriously didn’t want to mess with. (From the biography by Bill Dahl)
(1999/JAT) Hochglanz-Broschur, Paperback, 26x23x1cm, 112 Seiten, über 100 unveröffentlichte Fotos von Elvis in Chicago im May 1977 plus einem Raritäten Mix aus der Sammlung des Autors, Joseph A. Tunzi, der bei diesem Konzert (und bei vielen anderen) anwesend war. Ein schönes Buch - von Fans für Fans. - Neuware aus Lagerbestand - weltweit sehr teuer gehandelt! Foreword JAT Publications has produced many photo journals on Elvis with the introductions being written by either a musician or someone associated with Elvis. I am neither. l have never produced an Elvis record, wrote a song for him, nor have I been the recipient of a Cadillac, but I do represent a part of Elvis legacy that he had a true affection for - the loyal fan. I, like the millions of you who buy books like Joe´s, anxiously await the latest CD release, browse through bookstores for any new Elvis book, will tune in to an Elvis movie or concert whenever one is shown on TV, know the lyrics to most of Elvis´ songs, listen to the oldies station for Elvis songs we have probably heard a thousand times, can hear the slightest chord changes or inflections in Elvis´ voice on an alternate take, can look at a thousand pictures and find the one that has never been seen before, and when at Graceland, will turn off the tape recorder, take the tour at leisure, and wonder what Elvis would be recording in 1999 and who he would be recording with. For over twenty years, Elvis played many of our hometowns, leaving those who lived there with very special memories. It just so happens that Chicago has been the recipient of some of those memories left by an Elvis concert. What follows are my memories, in a sort of historical way, paralleling the life of Elvis as he recorded, passed through, and found lifelong friends in the city of Chicago. I would first like to thank Joe for giving me the honor and privilege of writing this foreword and conclusion for a musical legend who not only left an indelible mark in the history of recorded music, but who left his own distinct mark on the Chicago area and on its concert stage. During the many years of Elvis Presley´s illustrious career, he traveled over hundreds of thousands of miles both in the United States and abroad. Cities and countries such as Las Vegas, Germany, Nashville, Memphis, and Hawaii are just some of the places that have become synonymous with the Legend of Elvis Presley. This city of ´´Big Shoulders,´´ Chicago, is a city that could be added and stand very comfortably in this list, having become synonymous with Elvis not only because of the major events in Elvis´ life that have happened in ´´Chi-Town,´´ but also because of the significant associates in Elvis´ life who have called Chicago their hometown. Chicago´s association with the King began when the Colonel hired two Chicagoans, Al Divorin and Tom Diskin, who would later become among the Colonel´s most trusted confidants. In 1958, another Chicagoan, Elvis´ right-hand man, Joe Esposito, found his way into Elvis´ most trusted inner circle of friends, known as the ´´Memphis Mafia,´´ when they met in the army. On April 30, 1957, Elvis walked into Radio Recorders studio in Hollywood to record ´´Jailhouse Rock,´´ a song from the critically acclaimed motion picture. It would be the third song that year to top the Billboard Pop, Country, and Rhythm and Blues charts. ´´Jailhouse Rock´´ would also become the staggering fifth and final triple crown recording of Elvis´ career...
(2011/ACE) 24 tracks (64:31) with 20 page booklet. - Us Brits take our music very (very) seriously. It is often part of a whole scene which can include fashion, drug habits, social events and in the extreme, a whole ethos. We are very protective of something we put so much time and effort into and criticism goes to the core. The Northern Soul scene started over four decades ago and was never meant to be more than a passing fad. It just got so good we couldn’t bear to let go, or grow up. We still have an emotional attachment to records played by teenagers to teenagers an eon ago. The music was all brand new to us at that time and being brought up in a culture thousands of miles away from its source, we had to make it up as we went along. Knowledge was limited and we had no idea of the circumstances or origins of the recordings. For all we knew, Barnaby Bye could have come straight outta Philly’s black ghetto. Actually, we wouldn’t have cared had we known they had long hair and flares; the beat and sound was all. Dance records were what we wanted. They were usually based on the classic Motown sound, but we veered off up many a dark musical alley. Soul revisionism didn’t happen until the momentum and euphoria finally calmed down in the late 70s. I think all of the tracks on here were first played in the early 70s days of the scene (the Rumblers may have been a bit later) but hardly any of them have been played as oldies since. They’ve been airbrushed from our musical history. These are the ones we’ve removed from the DJ box, but left close to hand for that nostalgia trip. I can understand why more serious music fans look down on some of these tracks, but it really is their loss. Ann D’Andrea is so basic I thought they’d sent a demo take, but what an uplifting bouncy, catchy number it is. I recently had a discussion about David & the Giants with a serious soul fan, who claimed their record’s appeal was down to the Fame studio musicians and production. I’m sure that was him trying to justify his love of it. I think it’s the way the group captured the essence and exuberance of young love that makes it. That same goes for Kiki Dee’s ‘On A Magic Carpet Ride’. As a longhaired left-wing member of the Market Harborough underground in the late 60s, I couldn’t have pictured myself raving about a song featuring ´´rainbow’s end” lyrics in later years. John Fred’s ‘Hey Hey Bunny’ sounds like an early bubblegum record, but what fun and, if you’re a dancer, a great one to burn some energy off to. I beg you to get past the artists and titles that have repelled you for years and give this maligned side of Northern Soul an honest appraisal. If it gets one grumpy soul stalwart skipping across the kitchen to ‘Put Me In Your Pocket’ it’ll all have been worthwhile. (By Ady Croasdell)
