  • Various - Bronze Christmas (CD)


    Another fantastic Christmas delight from Koko-Mojo Records (and the first one on their ”Black History” Series). Back in the day the term ”bronze” was used in the USA to describe African Americans. In other words, it was a synonym of negro, black, sepia, coloured etcetera. After trying all these names, the compiler of this anthology (the mighty ”Mojo” Man) decided to call it “Bronze Christmas” because ”Black Christmas” was too obvious and has been largely used for many similar projects. Nevertheless, this compilation is all about ”Black Christmas” and black folks singing about Christmas, New Year’s Eve etcetera. The ”Mojo” Man (a.k.a. Little Victor Mac) selected some of his favourite tunes by ”bronze” artists guaranteed to make your Christmas maybe a little less white but merrier and with a whole lot of extra soul. This collection features 28 songs from the likes of the Mills Brothers (their version of ”Here Comes Santa Claus” included here inspired Elvis Presley who used their arrangements on his 1957 Christmas album), Louis Armstrong, Harry Crafton, Chuck Berry, Larry Darnell, Hank Ballard, Big Bud, Little Willie Littlefield, The Pilgrim Travellers (their version ”I’ll Be Home For Christmas” was also popularized by Elvis), Huey Piano Smith, Ella Fitzgerald and a lot more.

More Doo Wop Christmas Gems are compiled to bring a smile to your face through the sourced musical memories based upon an Old-Fashioned/ Traditional Christmas. The album continues the concept of Let’s Have A Doo Wop Christmas (KM-CD-78) with a flashback to earlier times with songs about Santa Claus, either getting hip (The Marquees), doing the boogie, or getting the blues (The Voices and Huey ”Piano” Smith). The coming together of family and friends I’ll Be Home For Christmas (The Pilgrim Travellers), or sadness when away from someone, Marvin & The Chirps I Will Miss You This Christmas or the ultimate separation through incarceration, Christmas In Jail (The Youngsters). The colorful aspect of Christmas is approached through decoration, The Christmas Tree (The Episodes) and excitement of things soon to happen, Limbo Under The Bed (The Classic Four). A sprinkling of seasonal humor is included Santa Claus Got Stuck (In My Chimney) (Ella Fitzgerald), merriment and fantasy, Dance Mr. Snowman Dance (The Crew Cuts), and childhood memories of the Winter Wonderland (Blue Notes). The album furthermore emphasizes the latter part of the celebration namely the ringing of the bells and a brand-new year and the resolution made by people (The Dell Vues and The Faces), the proclamation of, Hello Mr. New Year (The Cool Breezers). The album is concluded with the question asked of family, friends, and lovers, What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve (Dante and The Evergreens).

    Christmas Ball!
    What we started with our previous vinyl LP compilations, ’A Swingin’ Little Christmas’ (BAF 18069) and ’Heading For The Christmas Ball’ (BAF 18070), we want to continue with this one: to give the festival of love more exuberance, even if some songs are nostalgic and dreamy and you might even feel taken back to your own childhood. This Christmas disc invites you to the Christmas ball, to dance, to swing, to contemplation and exuberance among family members, friends, peers and guests.

  • Various - Meet Me At The Hop – 33 Cruisin’ Dreams (CD)


    1-CD with 16-page booklet, 33 tracks. Total playing time c. 79 min.

    This lovely compilation on Bear Family could well be the alternative soundtrack to cult movies like ’American Graffiti’, ’American Diner’, or ’Lemon Popsicle’!
    ’Cruising’ is as much a part of America’s history as Kennedy, Marilyn, Coke, and the hula-hoop.
    On 33 tracks from 1954-1964, the heyday of rock ’n’ roll, a culturally extremely vibrant decade is rediscovered, whether as a ’soundtrack’ in your car or as a musical enhancement to the next party!
    There are plenty of titles that were often heard on the (car) radio at the time and invite you to cruise in a stylish vintage automobile.
    Doo-Wop is strongly represented, including really rare recordings, especially Ding Dong by a certain Tony Orlando, played extremely fast for Doo-Wop!
    There’s plenty of teen rock with Ricky Nelson, Fabian, Troy Shondell and Darrell McCall, plus a terrific instrumental by the Viscounts.
    Ed Townsend, Ronnie Love and Larry Tamblyn are all part of the so-called popcorn sound, and there’s even an early blues/rock trailblazer from Hank Ballard!
    The 16-page color booklet includes producer Marc Mittelacher’s remarks on each song and many photos and illustrations, some of them rare.

    Imagine it’s summer, with the sun up in the blue sky, cruisin’ in a fancy ’50s automobile with this compilation playing on the car stereo! Cruising is still prevalent in the USA today. If there wasn’t a dance going on in high school, you didn’t know where else to go. So you took your dad’s car and shuttled between the milk bar, the local diner and the drive-in movie theater. You met in streets for wild car parties, participated in illegal races, or broke into the bathhouse at night, not just to swim! If you already had your sweetheart/lover by the hand, you usually went to ’Lover’s Lane’ to … Or to a romantic lake outside the city. Whatever was done, it was never boring, and the car and rock ’n’ roll were always there!

    At The Hop
    The very first song, At The Hop, here in its rare Barry Frank version, is a real get-down dance number, followed by Bumble Bee, LaVern Baker’s most beautiful rendition ever. Vocal groups are as much a part of cruising as the salt in the soup, and so there are quite a few doo-wop sounds in this compilation, including some hits as well as extremely rare ones. A highlight is One Bad Stud by the Honey Bears, which was covered by the Blasters in the movie ’Streets on Fire’. Hank Ballard gives us flawless early blues/rock with Look At Little Sister, later covered by Stevie Ray Vaughan.

    In between, again and again, the beautiful polyphonic sound of the vocal groups. The idea for this very personal compilation came via the feeling that keeps the time of the 1950s and early 60s alive and that is transported in cult movies like ’American Graffiti’. Thus, this compilation could also be an alternative soundtrack to that movie. The CD includes a 16-page booklet in color with notes on each song, compiled and written by Marc Mittelacher, as well as many photos and illustrations, some of them rare!

  • Various - Gaz’s Rockin Blues 40th Anniversary Special! Stag-O-Lee DJ Set Vol. 6 (2LP) (LP)


    Stag-O-Lee is proud to continue the DJ-Set Series with compilation by cult DJ and master of few compilations Gay Mayall.

    As a tasty contribution to your vinyl LP collection, this double album explores four avenues that reflect aspects of Gaz’s Rockin’ Blues club.

    Founded July 3rd 1980, now celebrating 40 years of fun and dancing at London’s Number One Blues dance. Originally at Gossips in the basement of 69 Dean Street, with it’s entrance on Meard St., the cobbled alley that links it with Wardour Street in the heart of Soho, traditionally the hub of clubland and red light district in London’s West End. After djing & presenting bands there for over 14 years I moved the regular Thursday club night round the corner to St. Moritz,159 Wardour Street. Another great Soho basement dive with a huge history. The choice of music in this particular selection contains two fundamental styles of Rhythm and Blues oriented boogie music that influenced the world. The post war era of black dance music was driven by R&B that was the inspiration for the Rock`n´Roll of the 1950’s. Here you have a hard core Slice of
    Black Rock & Roll, a side of rockin’ early 50’s R&B, it’s precursor on one platter. On the next disc you’ll hear a bunch of moving, exciting and at times frenzied 50’s Gospel. The idiom where
    most R&B and black Rock`n´Roll and Soul stars learned their art and cut their teeth.
    I was asked for this project to choose a bunch of Jamaican tunes to illustrate the role Jamaica’s music has played in influencing the style and direction of Gaz’s Rockin’ Blues.
    These tracks are drawn from the very earliest days, at the inception of Ska in the late 50’s when Ja artists, having fell in love with US R&B, created their own take on it. I hope you enjoy this album for many years to come. Treasure it as I and all at Gaz’s Rockin Blues have treasured these tracks.

    40 years and still going strong!

  • Sisco Bobby & Gene - Go, Go, Go! (CD)


    Bobby and Gene Sisco, who are not related to each other, had a similar musical
    career. They began recording rockabilly songs in the mid -1950s for smaller labels,
    which sold only to a limited extent at the time, but today fetch top prices among
    collectors o f this music. Further recordings tended more in the direction of country,
    but without completely abandoning their rockabilly roots. Here, for the first time, are
    the best recordings of the two re -released. Original downhome Rockabilly and
    Country of the 1950s and 1960s.

  • Williams Tex - Let´s Go Rockabilly (CD)


    Tex William was bassist and singer in the band of Western Swing legend Spade
    Cooley, with whom he had his first hit parade successes and appeared in films.
    Since Cooley, although brilliant as a singer, did not give him equal prominence on
    records and posters, he and most of Cooley’s band split up to continue as Tex
    William and Western Caravan. More hits followed for Capitol Records including the
    mega hit ”Smoke Smoke Smoke.”

    In the early 1950s he moved to Decca Records where he musically switched
    between Western Swing and Rockabilly. Especially his casually performed ”Let’s Go
    Rockabilly” was played with pleasure in the European rockabilly clubs of the 1980s
    and 90s. After 1958, he recorded for other labels and also managed to land more hits
    before he passed away in 1985.

    Here for the first time the best of his Rockabilly and Western Swing recordings made
    for Decca are united on one CD.

  • Fabares Shelley - Shelley! (10``LP)


    1-LP 10inch (limited to 500 copies – blue vinyl), 12 tracks.

    1:1 reproduction of hard-to-find Japanese pressing, a limited collector’s edition!
    Re-issue in our 11000 collector’s series.
    This ten-inch vinyl LP originally came out in 1962 in Japan, only on the Colpix/Jet label, catalog number 4046.
    Original vinyl album from the collection of Marcel Meersmann.
    Contains two bonus tracks not on original release.
    Reproduction of the rare original album cover.
    Each records contains a free postcard image.
    Painstakingly remastered for highest fidelity and pressed on high quality vinyl!
    Limited to 500 colored copies.

    Shelley Fabares? Born in 1944 as Michele Ann Marie Fabares, the singer and actress (film and TV) got a starring role in the 1965 Elvis film ’Girl Happy’. Three years earlier, she had recorded one of the great teenage anthems of the early sixties with Johnny Angel, which made it to the top of the Billboard pop charts in 1962. The recordings on the self-titles LP, released in July 1962 on the Colpix label, are considered outstanding examples of well-crafted teenage rock & roll and pop of the era. The producer was Stu Phillips, who also produced Nina Simone’s Colpix sessions, among others, and was later responsible for the theme music of U.S. television series such as ’Quincy’, ’Battlestar Galactica’ and ’Knight Rider’.

    Belgian record collector Marcel Meersmann has once again opened the doors of his archive for us and provided us with his rare original album for this re-release. Many thanks for this! According to today’s technical possibilities we have added two bonus tracks to the ten titles released at that time, carefully mastered the recordings for this limited vinyl edition and had the new version pressed on colored vinyl.

    Please note: strictly limited to 500 copies, worldwide!
