(2006/COLLECTABLES) 10 tracks - original Del-Fi recordings
(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.

(Late Night) 25 tracks - Although the statement that ´they´re not writing songs like they used to´ has been toroughly disproved many times, there´s sometimes that old songs can do that new songs have to wait to do (until the´re old songs, of course), and that is to become revived. More and more, stoday´s top artists are dipping into the great oldies, trying to come up with ways to present them in today´s musical idiom. When it works, credit is due twice; first, to the song for its adaptability and second, to the artist and arranger for giving the song its new life. Certainly one of the best examples of this been the phenomenon of Vic Dana´s recording of ´Red Roses For A Blue Lady´´. However this wasn´t Vic´s first venture into the area of bringing songs back. His vocal recording of the old instrumental number ´Shangri-La´ already established him as having the ability to communicate yesterday´s song to today s listening audience. This album brings to the fore Vic ´s way with the oldies; all the songs here are standards-which means that each and every one has proven itself to be a hit. Now, a new generation has a chance to hear them the way they like to hear songs sung. And that means the Vic Dana way.
