  • Scott Jack - Way To Survive (Käytetty CD)



    It’s been a long time coming, but now it’s here! The new Jack Scott album ”Way to Survive” will be released on October 9th, 2015. The album consists of twelve country and rock ’n’ roll songs carefully selected by Jack himself and the Bluelight Records production team. Jack Scott recorded ”Way to Survive” in Finland with the same dream team responsible for the highly acclaimed Hayden Thompson and Mac Curtis albums.

    When Jack Scott first appeared on the rock ’n’ roll scene in the late 1950’s he immediately demonstrated a highly individual and powerful style. His first recordings with a snarling rockabilly attitude in 1957 exhibited a profound country rock synthesis and soon after he hit the charts with the tremendous ballad ”My True Love”. Jack Scott’s principal pop success came with strong ballads like ”What In the World’s Come Over You” and ”Burning Bridges” which were massive hits on both sides of the Atlantic in 1960. It was his ballads that marked Jack Scott’s unique contribution to rock ’n’ roll. They were the slowest, heaviest and gutsiest of the era.

    Born Giovanni Scafone on January 24th 1936 in Windsor, Ontario, Jack Scott signed a recording deal at the age of 21 in 1957 and over the next five years he scored 19 hit singles. Double A-sided single from 1958, ”My True Love” / ”Leroy”, became his first million-seller, with one song peaking at number three and the other at number 11 on the Billboard pop chart. It also became a Top Ten hit in England.

    The biggest follow-ups were ”Goodbye Baby” (1959 #8), ”What In the World’s Come Over You” (1960 #5) and ”Burning Bridges” (1960 #3). One of the most well-known songs of Jack Scott, “The Way I Walk”, was a minor hit for Jack himself but it became a punk rock anthem and was covered in the 1970’s by Robert Gordon and in the 1980’s by The Cramps and was featured in the movie Natural Born Killers.

    Jack Scott sounded tough, like someone you wouldn’t want to meet in a dark alley. Still today Jack Scott continues to vacillate between a cowboy crooner and a rough-edged rocker and he occasionally appears on the rockabilly circuit, still looking and sounding like a man you seriously don’t want to mess with.

  • Ortega Lindi - Faded Gloryville (LP)


    ’Faded Gloryville isn’t just about music, it’s about anything that brings you down, whether it’s dreams not coming true or relationships not working out, and it’s message is this: you can go to a place where you’re feeling really down about things, but it’s what you do afterwards – do you decide to reside there forever, or do you leave and make the situation better – that matters. You have to travel through Faded Gloryville to get to paradise.’

  • KIng B.B. - Blues in Transition 1951-1962 (2CD) (Käytetty CD)


    Without a doubt B.B. King is one of the most, if not THE most well-known blues musician to date and at 89 years old he is still playing and touring plus owns a string of blues clubs and steakhouses. I wonder if he eats his steak blue? (Sorry).

    This is, we think, a different way of looking at his early career via the budget albums released by his first label, Modern Records through to the first handful of recordings he made after signing with ABC Records in 1962.

    Features many hits and now famous songs from his career including: ’Please Love Me’; ’3 O’clock Blues’; ’You Know I Love You’; ’Sweet Little Angel’ ’Ten Long Years’; ’Sweet Sixteen (Parts 1 & 2)’ and many more.

    By the ’70s and the release of ’The Thrill Has Gone’, B.B. King really was the ’King of The Blues’ and this CD set is a great way to acquire some of his greatest hits and most influential recordings.

  • Diddley Bo - Have Guitar, Will Travel (180 gram) (LP)


    Vinyl LP repressing.

    Good Lord. Bo Diddley came out with all guns blazing on his floor-rattling romp from 1960, Have Guitar Will Travel. The LP would become a blueprint for SO much great rock ’n’ roll that followed: The Stones covered ”Mona” in 1965, the Masters Apprentices walloped ”Dancing Girl,” the Downliners Sect blasted through ”Nursery Rhyme,” and ”Cops and Robbers” even named one of the baddest mid-’60s UK R&B combos ever! Really… Who in the hell wouldn’t be inspired by hearing this opus that followed on the heels of Bo’s devastating first two albums? Have Guitar Will Travel was packed with the same badass guitar, bolder-than-bold vocals, and trademark Diddley beat that had already made Bo a stone legend and man-among-men.

  • Various - Rockabilly Rebels Volume 1 (180 gram,Ltd, Yellow) (LP)


    Limited Edition numbered 180 gram yellow colored vinyl LP pressing. As every knows, Sun Records recorded the first Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash and Carl Perkins records. What many people don’t realize is that Sun Records created an entirely new genre of music, ”Rockabilly.” Rockabilly became the major evolution in the Sun sound. Lyrically it was bold; musically it was sparse; but it moved. In the 1950’s, Country music rarely used drums that were so vital to Jazz, Blues and jump bands. In fact, drums were prohibited on stage at the Grand Ole Opry. However, Rockabilly drums played an essential role in driving teens across the nation to become enamored with the Rockabilly movement and the revolutionary Sun sound. Inherent in the music of Sun is a vibrancy that survives to this day. Sincere, passionate music. Music that has stood the test of time. It is music that has reached across race, age and gender boundaries. It reflects the diversity and vision of it’s founder, Sam Phillips and the talent that recorded on the Sun label that helped shape American culture. Rockabilly Rebels is a limited numbered edition vinyl album compilation of Sun Rockabilly classics as well as more obscure tracks. One thing is for sure; classic or obscure… these songs rock!!

  • Cochran Wayne - Same (180 gram, Gatefold) (LP)


    Signed by Chess, Cochran and the Riders released their first LP in 1967. Produced by Abner Spector with sessions at Miami’s Criteria Studios and Muscle Shoals’ Fame Studios, the cleverly-titled ”Wayne Cochran” offered up a mix of popular R&B and soul songs which apparently served as a reflection of the group’s live act. To be honest, if you were looking for something original and ground breaking, this wasn’t the place to start. While Cochran’s performances were quite energetic (having one of the era’s tightest backing bands certainly didn’t hurt), none of the twelve arrangements strayed far from the originals. I’m guessing that most of the things that supposedly made these guys such a killer live act simply couldn’t be replicated on vinyl – not to imply that the collection was bad. It wasn’t. Individually most of the songs were quite good, but it you were familiar with the originals, stripped of Cochran’s in-concert craziness, they simply couldn’t compete.

  • Howlin` Wolf - Second Album aka Rockin` Chair + 2 Bonus Tracks (180 gram) (LP)


    Howlin’ Wolf was one of the greatest characters and most electrifying performers in blues history. He was an imposing presence, blessed with a thunderous voice, enormous physical strength, and a pair of lungs that would not quit. Wolf didn’t just startle audiences, he menaced them into submission. In addition to his powerful voice, he was also an accomplished harmonica player. Wolf was one of the first artists to figure out how to make thoroughly modern experimental music by emphasizing the most primitive elements of its ancestral roots. This quintessential collector’s release contains Wolf’s eponymous second album for Chess Records, Howlin’ Wolf (1962) – one of the all-time cornerstones of the Chicago Blues. The so-called “Rockin’ Chair Album” brings together some of the electric blues’ finest songs from the late ‘50s and early ‘60s, such as “The Red Rooster”, “Spoonful”, “Wang-Dang-Doodle”, and “Back Door Man”. In addition, this CD includes 10 bonus tracks (gathering a variety of those great sides Wolf recordedbetween 1952 and 1959), which together with this remastered gem represent the finest work of this blues master in his prime. PERSONNEL: HOWLIN’ WOLF, vocals, guitar and harmonica, plus: Willie Johnson, Hubert Sumlin, Jimmy Rogers (guitar), Willie Dixon (bass) Otis Spann, Henry Gray (piano) Earl Phillips, Sammy Lay (drums), Abe Locke (tenor saxophone), among others.

  • Various - Ola Belle Reed and Southern Mountain Music on the Mason-Dixon Line 2cd + BOOK (CD)


    Upea paketti!

    Ola Belle Reed and Southern Mountain Music on the Mason-Dixon Line is the first in-depth look at the life of Ola Belle Reed, a groundbreaking artist and one of the all-time greatest performers of authentic, old-time music.

    Born to a musical family in the mountains of Ashe County, North Carolina, in 1913, Reed became a prolific songwriter and performer, known for her unique style of banjo playing and singing. Reed inspired many musicians throughout her life, eventually becoming one of the leading lights of the folk music revival and winning the prestigious National Heritage Fellowship; in 2015, 13 years after her death in 2002, her influence continues to reverberate. In January of 1966, folklore graduate student Henry Glassie made the first professional solo recordings of Ola Belle Reed, travelling from Philadelphia to the town of Oxford, Pennsylvania to see Reed, Alex Campbell, and the New River Boys and Girls play their exciting brand of Southern mountain music live, on the air, in the back of the Campbell’s Corner general store. Over the next two years, Glassie – who went on to become one of the United States’ most celebrated folkorists, a distinguished professor, and a world-renowned scholar – recorded Reed’s extensive repertoire, while also chronicling the remarkable story of the migration of communities from the Blue Ridge Mountains toward the Mason-Dixon Line before WWII. In 2009, Maryland state folklorist Clifford Murphy struck out to discover whether this rich musical tradition still existed in the small Maryland, Delaware, and Pennsylvania towns where it once flourished. Murphy, amazed by what he encountered, began making audio recordings to document the descendants of Ola Belle Reed’s musical legacy.

    This first-ever release of Reed’s 1960s recordings, which were deposited in Indiana University Bloomington’s Archives of Traditional Music, is counter-balanced by a disc of Murphy’s recordings of Reed’s descendants and those within her Appalachian community whom she inspired. This deluxe edition, presented as a 256-page hardcover book with two CDs of remastered recordings, highlights Reed’s deep repertoire – folk ballads, minstrel songs, country standards, and originals – and traces the impact that her music made and is still making today.

    This project is a co-production between Dust-to-Digital, Maryland State Arts Council, and Indiana University. Includes performances by Ola Belle Reed, Dave Reed, Alex Campbell, Hugh Campbell, Zane Campbell, Burton DeBusk, the DeBusk-Weaver Family, Burl Kilby, T.J. Lundy, John Miller, Danny Paisley, and Ryan Paisley.
