Three Ballads from Britain: Barbara Allen, Tam ...
€ 9.95 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Why does a song become a favorite oldie, even across generations? The problems of heart versus head versus hormones have been fodder for songs even older than one´s parents and grandparents. These three spoken ballads, originating in the British Isles but well-traveled into American Appalachia, and recorded even by some of today´s musicians, tell tales of careless love and heroism and the real (or satirical) effects of an individual´s words and actions and willfulness. With short introductions and an American accent, these tales feature strong teenaged protagonists, and one cantakerous middle-aged antagonist, who might have stepped out of news stories of today. A short sample of the traditional tune follows each reading. Music by Jamie Myerson. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Barbara Groark. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/gork/000014/bk_gork_000014_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Ein tragikomischer Roman über fünf Oldies, die versuchen, verflossenes Glück in die Gegenwart herüberzuretten. Trotz aller Widrigkeiten, die das Leben bereithält, sind sie fest entschlossen, es bis zuletzt zu genießen. Zwei Paare und ein Witwer aus der norditalienischen Provinz alle mehr oder weniger gebrechlich, alle mehr als weniger krank fahren in den Urlaub nach Nizza. Im Jaguar. Sie steigen in einem Viersternehotel ab, mit einer Liste exklusiver Restaurants und der American-Express-Karte in der Tasche. In einem Park im noblen Wohnviertel Cimiez entdecken sie eine geheimnisvolle Klinik. Auf den Spuren eines unveröffentlichten Romans von Frederic Prokosch und gestärkt von ein paar Joints (vorgeblich aus therapeutischen Gründen) macht sich Cesare, ein Verlagsleiter in Rente, auf die Suche nach Leo Meyer, einem Schriftsteller und ehemals besten Freund, den er in den 1980er-Jahren gefördert und berühmt gemacht hatte. Nach Jahren des Schweigens fährt dieser ausgerechnet in Nizza in einem Taxi an ihm vorüber. War es tatsächlich Leo? Ist er Patient der mysteriösen Klinik? Was geht dort vor?

Various - Charlie Gillett´s Radio Picks - Honky...
€ 15.95 *
zzgl. € 3.99 Versand

(2014/Ace) 25 tracks (70:55) 28 page booklet. The received wisdom is that the 70s started with prog rock, were soon inundated with disco and burnt bright and dark with punk rock as the backlash. As with most such wisdom, it is only part of the story. In March 1972 when Charlie Gillett first went on air, the bleak nostalgia of ‘American Pie’ was riding high in the charts, pretty much confirmed by the end of the year with Chuck Berry’s ‘My Ding-A-Ling’. The charts were mostly a mix of schlock, novelty, 60s leftovers and shiny new pop. Particularly shiny were the glam rockers tarted up in tin foil and pancake. Into this scene sailed Honky Tonk, a radio show that ignored the mainstream almost entirely and instead championed mostly American music, although along the way gave a break to Elvis Costello and Dire Straits among many other aspiring UK artists. Coinciding with the advent of the show, there was a revival of American 50s rock’n’roll, in what turned out to be the dawn of the re-issue business. Whereas there had previously been a sell-the-hits-all-over-again approach to ´´oldies”, many records that had never had an airing or were long-forgotten were now being heard in well-annotated and intelligently compiled releases. Charlie must take a lot of the credit for this with his seminal book Sound Of The City, which was not afraid to take seriously the business of pop music. In parallel to the 50s revival there was a wave of vernacular-based pop out of the USA, often with artists who had been around since the 50s and 60s and no longer relied on whatever good looks they once had to sell records. Instead they sold records by making very good ones. Doug Sahm, Dr John, Allen Toussaint and Travis Wammack all had career boosts around this time. These were the artists, rooted simultaneously in authenticity and pop – well, at least a good tune – who Charlie championed. Another element of his playlists was soul, the music that had captured young hearts in the UK at the dawn of R&B and remained at the centre of British taste – vibrant, totally up-to-date and not much to do with disco. Alongside this was the narrative tradition of country that still thrived and was yet to fall into assembly line mode. This was Charlie’s milieu and by the time the Honky Tonk theme played on Radio London for the last time at the end of 1978, punk rock had pretty much been and gone, Rod the ex-Mod was being sexy, disco continued banging on and Charlie was still playing great records.(Roger Armstrong)

Chris Montez - Let´s Dance - The Monogram Sides...
€ 16.95 *
zzgl. € 3.99 Versand

(1992/ACE) 20 tracks (46:11) with 8 page booklet. Everybody knows ´Let´s Dance´. A million seller that has charted three times in the UK, it now enjoys the kind of status that lets you know that rock´n´roll classics are the folk songs of our time. On the back of that one big success, Montez regularly tours the oldies and night club circuits of America and Europe (he was in the UK at the end of last year on a similar visit with Len Barry). This album collects together Montez´s sides for the Los Angeles label. Monogram, including, of course, ´Let´s Dance´ and ´Some Kinda Fun´ (a No.10 in the UK in 1963). Montez started out as a ballad singer and like Ritchie Valens, a fellow Hispanic-American, was influenced as much by the rancheras (Spanish folk songs) of his youth as by his peer group´s rock´n´roll. ´´Let´s Dance´´ featured an ace group including Jesse Sailes on drums, Ray Johnson on organ, sometime Doors´ bassist Ray Pohiman and Joel Hill (later to work with Canned Heat) on guitar. Stan Ross´s engineering gave the session it´s distinctive sound. This collection is a mixture of ballads and big sound rockers that show Montez deserved more than the one-hit wonder tag he seems to be stuck with.
