Presley Elvis - From Memphis to Taipeh Vol 1 (Kirjat)
From Memphis to Taipeh
A Reference Guide to the Colorful Magic of Elvis’ Asian Vinyl
It was in the late 1950s that the first Asian records containing Elvis‘ music were released. Since then, hundreds of records have followed,
many with gorgeous covers in different variations and featuring beautiful colored vinyl. Still, in all the years since, no collector’s guide on
Elvis’ Asian vinyl has ever been published. There’s never even been a modest, informative booklet about these albums.
This new book is the very first reference guide to Elvis‘ Asian vinyl releases.
We decided to limit this volume to 10” and 12” records originating from six major Asian countries: Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea,
Taiwan and Thailand. Inside, you’ll learn where, why and for whom these records were made.
You‘ll discover what hunting for vinyl in these countries meant, and how surviving records were found.
The cover art and label designs are presented to the collector in sizes large enough to read right off the page.
And that’s exactly what you should do! You’ll be sure to chuckle at inadvertent miscues that often appear on the album covers and labels, they are hilarious.
This hardcover book comes into the ring with 500+ pages, measuring 28x28cm and weighing more than 3 kilos.
Inside the book you’ll find 500+ different records and 2500+ pictures.
Limited edition of 500 copies.
Be amazed by the colorful magic of Elvis‘ Asian vinyl releases.
Slim Harpo - Buzzin’ The Blues – The Complete Slim Harpo 5CD Boxset + BOOK (CD)€119,00
The complete works of one of the masters of Louisiana ’swamp blues’ and ’swamp pop.’
Five CDs containing 142 tracks and a 104 page book with many rare photographs and
CDs 1 and 2 hold all Slim Harpo’s Excello label 45s and original album tracks.
CDs 3 and 4 have all the recordings unissued in Harpo’s lifetime and all the alternative takes of
CD 5 features a live recording made in 1961, one of the very earliest to capture an original and
important blues artist in their prime.
There are four previously unissued live songs and one previously unknown song.
Slim Harpo made his impressive entrance into the world of blues recordings in 1957. Here was a man with an unforgettable
name, a strong song – I’m A King Bee – and a finely-crafted minimalist style, at once familiar and novel. In 1961 he made a
crossover entry into the American Rhythm ’n’ Blues and Popular Music charts when Rainin’ In My Heart became one of
those barely-categorisable hits that just couldn’t be ignored. Then came Baby, Scratch My Back, a soulful rhythmic number
that led to tours with the rock elite.
The story of Slim Harpo and his music is among the most fascinating in all blues and Rhythm ’n’ Blues. Harpo’s music had
timeless and mellow qualities that made his sound both authentic and accessible. By many benchmarks he was a success, and
for periods in his life he was in the spotlight, yet little, really, is known of him beyond his fading circle of musicians, friends,
and family in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Born in 1924, he was among the last of the original down-home bluesmen, but also
one of the first to register hits in the popular music charts.
Harpo made music that was ’pure’ blues in a number of forms but also borrowed from and wandered into soul and country
styles without losing face. It’s easy to listen to, easy to love, but real. It has an underlying intensity that continues to make it
appealing to generations of performers who have recorded Harpo’s songs down the years.
Gibson Don - Singer,Songwriter 1961-1966 4CD Box set (CD)€79,00
(4-CD LP-sized box set with 24-page book) We pick up where 1949-1960 leaves off, and although the hits were growing smaller, Don was cutting some of the most strikingly original music to come out of Nashville in the early-to-mid ’60s. Surely no one else in Nashville would have even contemplated recording with Los Indios Tabajaras, much less made it work. Gospel, standards, blues, and hits like Yes, I’m Hurting, Oh Such A Stranger and A Born Loser are all here.
