The Wanderers (Mediabook, + DVD + Audio-CD)
28,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Die Schüler der Tully-High, Richie, Joey und Perry haben in der Bronx eine Gang namens The Wanderers gegründet. Wir schreiben das Jahr 1963, ihre Erlebnisse aber sind universell: Verliebtsein, Überleben in der Schule und das Revier gegen Widersacher wie die Fordham Baldies, die Del Bombers und die Ducky Boys verteidigen. Basierend auf dem hochgelobten Erstlings-Roman von Richard Price ist The Wanderers eine reichhaltige Mischung aus Spaß und Ernst, Fantasie und Posse. Regisseur Philip Kaufman (Der Stoff aus dem die Helden sind) kombinierte junge Talente wie Ken Wahl, Karen Allen (Indiana Jones und das Königreich des Kristallschädels), Toni Kalem (Die Sopranos) und Linda Manz (In der Glut des Südens) mit einem bunten Musikmix goldener Oldies zu einem berauschenden Erlebnis. Wie American Graffiti und Saturday Night Fever öffnet dieser Kultklassiker ein nostalgisches Fenster in vergangene Zeiten. Wunderschöne Kameraarbeit des großen Michael Chapman (Taxi Driver, Wie ein wilder Stier).

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.

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.

Various - 21st Century Doo Wop (CD)
15,95 € *
zzgl. 3,99 € Versand

(Ace Records ) 26 Titel Alte Doo-Wopper sterben nie - sie scheinen für immer zu singen, und noch besser, sie infizieren jüngere Brüder mit dem gleichen glorreichen Wunsch, den verrücktesten Teil des Rock´n´Roll zu erhalten. Doo Wop ist nie ganz weggegangen, und diese exzellente neue Kollektion zeigt neue und aktuelle Aufnahmen von den Gruppen, die die Fahne hochhalten. Vielleicht ist es die Einfachheit des Konzepts, die das Genre am Leben erhalten hat - eine Gruppe von Sängern, die wie in den alten Straßenecken der Bronx aufstehen und harmonieren - ohne komplizierte Instrumentalparts. Der New Yorker Sammler, Produzent und Crystal Ball Records-Chef Ed Engel hat diese 26-Track-Kollektion aus einer Vielzahl von Acts zusammengestellt, die sich in den 80er, 90er und 90er Jahren gebildet, neu geformt oder weiter entwickelt haben. Die Tracks hier spiegeln weitgehend die Neo-Doo-Wop-Ära der frühen 60er Jahre wider, als die klassischen Formen mit großzügigen Dollops voller Spaß und extra blisternden Pop-Harmonien überlagert wurden. Uptempo-Sounds werden durch den schnellen Opener My Heart aus dem derzeit aktiven Del Vikings, die rockige Symphony Of Love von Frankie & The Fashions und Moonlight Love from the Emotions gut repräsentiert. Der letztgenannte Track erinnert an den besten Sound der späten 50er Jahre von Belmonts, was ihn zu einem echten Hingucker machen sollte. Fans der wahnsinnigen Ochsenfrosch-Schule des Bassgesangs werden auch viel Freude daran haben, da einige Schnitte immer komplexer werdende Lippen-Knüpf-Basslinien aufweisen, nicht mehr als die Crosstones´ I´ve Got A Boy, die eine seltenere Distaff-Führung aufweisen. Ballad-Fans werden mit Blue Star von Nicky Addeo & the Nite Owls, das Nicky mit stratosphärischen Falsettos und Ace Favoriten der Legends Of Doo Wop (siehe ihre eigene aktuelle CD auf Ace CDCHD 824) ihre wunderbare Version von Dear Lord finden. Doo wop ist natürlich immer beliebt bei jüngeren modernen Gruppen, und Deutschlands Crystalairs zeigen auf der prächtigen Little Miss Pinocchio eine ganze Reihe harmonischer Talente, während die britischen Roomates der Aufgabe mit ihrem I Know You Cheated mehr als gewachsen sind. Beides sind starke Originalsongs. Eines der Probleme, die Sammler manchmal mit Doo Wop haben, ist die Vorhersehbarkeit der manchmal begrenzten Texte, aber hier scheint dies kein Problem mehr zu sein, da einige Tracks viel fantasievoller geschrieben sind. The Regals´ Detective Of Love überprüft eine entsprechend breite Palette von fiktiven Detektiven, während das Ovations´ High School Reunion die immer populäre Geschichte von musikalischen Erinnerungen mit Ihren alten Freunden erzählt. Die Ovations, die ursprünglich von Neil Leverson (von Randy & the Rainbows Ruhm) aufgenommen wurden, repräsentieren die circa´64-Ära, als Neo-Doo-Wop auf dem Rückzug war. Ihr exzellentes Crystal Ball-Album aus dem Jahr 1987, von dem dieser Track stammt, soll demnächst in den USA neu aufgelegt werden. Der letzte Titel, Echoes From The Tiles from Tuesday At Eight, der einzige A-cappella-Track hier, greift die Themen aus dem berühmten Looking For An Echo-Song auf und bringt sie ein wenig weiter - so weit, dass der Sänger jetzt für ein Oldies-Magazin schreibt! Vergessen Sie den Gedanken! Mit ihren Produktionswerten und ihrem hervorragenden Klang wird diese Kollektion viel dazu beitragen, die Sache des modernen Doo Wop zu fördern. Neben den oben beschriebenen Goodies finden Fans auch neue Tracks von Favoriten wie den Elegants, den Devotions, den Del Satins, den Quotations, den Mello Kings, Kenny Vance (ex-Jay & The Americans) und vielen mehr.

´´Ho preso dalla provincia lombarda cinque anziani signori - due coppie e un vedovo, tutti afflitti da malanni più o meno disastrosi - e li ho portati in vacanza a Nizza. In Jaguar. In un hotel a quattro stelle, con in mano un elenco di ristoranti lussuosi e in tasca un´American Express a credito illimitato. Tra i giardini del Cimiez e una clinica privata diretta dal sosia di Daniel Auteuil, con l´aiuto di un romanzo inedito di Frederic Prokosch e di una magica sfera di hashish, Cesare, che racconta la storia, si metterà sulle tracce di Leo Meyer. Lo scrittore che negli anni ottanta ha fatto esordire e ha sostenuto come direttore letterario di una nota casa editrice. Leo, il suo amico della vita. Che dopo anni di misteriosa latitanza riappare lì, a Nizza, gli occhi incavati nel volto malato, sul sedile posteriore di un taxi in corsa. Lo so che alla fine ne è uscito un romanzo struggente, con questi cinque anziani a ricapitolare le loro vite in smobilitazione, mentre provano caparbiamente a riallacciare i fili degli affetti. Ma Cesare è fermamente deciso a non cedere di un´unghia alla malinconia e al rimpianto. Come me, che mentre scrivevo tiravo giù dagli scaffali Wodehouse, Carlo Manzoni, Marcello Marchesi, e facevo esorcismi in forma di battute. Intanto che nel romanzo, questa volta felicemente, il mistero cresceva e la trama si infittiva.´´ (Piersandro Pallavicini) 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?

(Vee Jay) 28 tracks (77:00) Digitaly remasterd reissue of 2 incredible rare original 1950s LPs (VJ 1051 + VJ 1084) - superb sound quality! - This CD is a reissue of two Tee-Jay albums from 1962 and 1963, respectively, the middle of the first ´´oldies´´ revival. Their release was inspired, no doubt, by the success of Art Laboe´s Oldies But Goodies series, compilations of leased hits and misses of rock ´n´ roll´s golden age of several short years previous. The mish mash of clashing styles here shows that the powers behind these albums knew nothing of their audiences tastes and that their choices probably had more to do with which masters were available at the best price than any aesthetic judgement. Why else would they have put obscure doo-wop sides (welcome to those of us without the financial resources to purchase the originals) next to American Bandstand one hit teen wonders? The Quintones were a four female/one male group from Philly who recorded two records for the local Hunt label. Dick Clark was said to have had an interest in the company. which may account for the massive airplay on his TV show in 1958 as much as the group´s similarity to the then-popular Chantels.Harold Dorman´s one 1960 hit for the Rita label was later revived in a chart version by Johnny Rivers. Singer/accordionist Tony Bellus´s record hit #25 on the N.R.C. label. Paducah, Kentucky´s Ray Smith´s lone hit in 1960 was on Sam Phillips´s brother Juddy´s Judd label. The same year, Rosie Hamlin, raised in Alaska and transplanted to San Diego, wrote her primitive masterpiece of innocence, ´´Angel Baby.´´ It featured a sax solo so bad it was good. Released on the Highland label, the record is still heard on oldies radio today. The remaining cuts on Unavailable 16 were vocal group recordings from either Vee-Jay´s vaults or from the Chance label, label president Ewart Abner´s former employer, plus two cuts by the Orchids leased from Chicago dj Al Benson´s Parrot label. The 5 Echoes are best remembered today for the presence of Johnnie Taylor, who also sang with such gospel groups as the Highway QCs and the post-SamCooke Soul Stirrers before embarking on a successful solo career. Their ´´Lonely Mood´´ was on Chance subsidiary Sabre prior to its inclusion here. Also from Chance came these Flamingos and Moonglows sides, two of their pre-fame finest. Of the Vee-Jay initiated cuts, the Impressions feature a young Curtis Mayfield and the Delegates, a young Dee Clark. The Spaniels´ ´´Red Sails In The Sunset´´ had not been released before this album. It was subsequently bootlegged for collectors who just had to have it on a single. Original Nitty Gritty was more of a blues-oriented grouping of material. Jerry Butler and Dee Clark contributed their name value to rock ´n´ roll fans, while Rosco Gordon, Pee Wee Crayton and Billy Emerson were for the blues fanatics. I suspect that the inclusion of the remaining rare sides was less an act of generosity towards record collectors than a way of filling up the album with a bunch of stuff laying around collecting dust. Lee Diamond later was to have his moment as co-writer of Aaron Neville´s ´´Tell It Like It Is´´ and Harold Burrage´s ´´Crying For My Baby´´ was later cut in a hit version by Junior Parker. Burrage was alocal blues singer who had recorded for Decca and Cobra. Eddie Taylor and Earl Phillips played on label mate Jimmy Reed´s records. Joe Buckner sang with the band of pianist Tommy Dean and Priscilla Bowman had had a hit on Vee-Jay with Jay McShann, ´´Hands Off.´´ The value of these albums today is that more than a few of these songs haven´t yet appeared on other compilations to this day and are welcome old friends.

Various - Harlem Shuffle - Sixties Soul Classic...
17,95 € *

(Charly) 16 tracks ´What Foes Around, Turn Around´ runs on old maxim which still holds true. In music, as in all things to do with fashion, tastes go round in full circle. What was passe last year can well be this year´s in thing. We´ve seen *the return of the mini-skirt and now it´s the turn of 1960´s soul music to get a much deserved resurgence of popularity. Maybe it´s a sign that I´m getting old but — the explosion of rock ´n´ roll onto the scene around 1955 excepted — I can think of no other era or musical style which possessed quite the same measure of excitement and delightful discovery as did ´Sixties Soul. True, there have been many great records in the years since but I can´t imagine ever again feeling confident enough to place a standing order with my local record shop for every single release on not one but half-a-dozen labels, knowing that I´ll like every one of them! Sue, London American, Stateside, President, Jay Boy, Chess. Atlantic, Stax and Tamla Motown, were the much-sought-out UK labels amongst soul fans in those heady days. Now, two decades later, the music is ´coming back strong´ (to quote a Tony Clarke classic from the era) thanks initially to the efforts of such re-issue labels as Charly and, latterly, to the renewed chart status of oldies from the likes of Sam Cooke and Marvin Gaye, thanks to the use of the songs in TV commercials. Clubs up and down the land are playing the classic songs to a whole new audience while the faithful minority (and it isn´t a small one) who have never deserted the music have taken the chance to stock up on fresh copies of their well-worn favourites. I´ve a strong conviction that both groups will find plenty to entertain them in this great album. Birdlegs And Pauline : The British version of the Sue label, run for Island Records by that colourful character, the late Guy Stevens, was *prized by ´60s soul music collectors for unearthing the real rarities from the American RUB scene. Many were great. some were abysmal, all were interesting. ´´Spring´´ was one of the most talked about UK Sue issues, and one of the most obscure in origin (indeed, it wasn´t until sitting down to pen this present sleevenote that I discovered they had an *album issued, on the Cuca label). From that LP´s sleevenote I´ve gleaned the following information! It was the idea of Chicago bluesman Shakey Jake to put the two together — Birdlegs (aka Sidney Banks) and Pauline (a good friend of Pearl Bailey). Cut originally for Cuca. the quirky ´Spring´ was picked up by Ewan Abner (later to be a Motown exec) for release nationally on Vee Jay. Bob And Ear : Men of many names, Bob and Earl first rocked the emergent British disco scene with the emminently danceable ´Harlem Shuffle´ back in 1963 but it wasn´t until re-release in 1969 that it cracked the UK top-ten. Bobby Relf also recorded as Bobby Garrett while his partner Earl Nelson also masqueraded on records — with some success — as Earl Cosby, Jackie Lee and Jay Dee. Just to further clarify things, the original Bob in the duo had been Bobby Byrd. otherwise known as Bobby Day, of ´Rockin´ Robin´ fame! * The original pairing had emerged from the Hollywood Flames. for whom Nelson sang lead on the 1957 hit ´´Buzz Buzz´´, and recorded for Class until 1959 when Relf replaced Byrd. ´Harlem Shuffle´ was originally released in the US by Marc, one of several LA based labels for which they recorded, usually under the aegis of producer Fred Smith and arranger Barry White (later to be a soul superstar) who devised a totally distinctive sound. With the Rolling Stones´ recent cover version having returned that group to its ´60s R&B roots, the time seems ripe for the original ´´Harlem Shuffle´´ to return to the nation´s dance-floors. Barbara Lewis : A product of the Ollie McLoughlin stable, which also included Deon Jackson and the Capitols, Barbara Lewis had an R&B chart-topper in 1963 with the superb ballad ´Hello Stranger´´, leased from McLoughlin´s Carla label by Atlantic, and quickly scored again with ´Baby I´m Yours´ and ´Make Me Your Baby´. Shades Of Blue: Of Shades of Blue I know nothing except that they were a white Detroit based act and that their ´Oh How Happy´ was written by Edwin Starr and was widely performed by British soul acts in the late ´60s. It was released in the UK on Sue. Brenton Wood: Born in Shreveport, Louisiana, on July 26 1941, Los Angeles´ based Brenton Wood wasn´t a one-hit wonder, he was a two-hit wonder! It was Double Shot Records who
