  • Stewart Wynn - Wishful Thinking 10CD Box + 52-Page Book (CD)


    Simply incredible. Here are 10 (count ’em…10!) CD’s in a single box set covering the father of the Bakersfield Sound. Wynn Stewart, almost singlehandedly, created a genre of Country Music that still stands the test of time, with modern disciples like Heather Myles and Dwight. Here’s is the man that Waylon called his favorite singer; who Dwight Yoakam considers one of the finest voices ever; who hired a young Merle Haggard as a Bassist; who sang alongside Buck Owens. This box set contains 300 (+/-) songs, as only Bear Family Records could undertake. You cannot be disappointed with this set. Sure, there are some remakes, but the originals are there as well. Personally, I find the 2d Disc to be my favorite, with it’s nonstop fiddles and steel guitar; but there are other discs that cover his early (and thankfully short-lived) foray into Rock-n-Roll, as well as those that highlight his take on the Nashville Sound. Wynn’s life was cut short, and done so by his own hand……but here’s a chance to see what a pioneer and true visionary can accomplish with a little effort. A great Box Set. A++++

  • Blackwood Brothers - Rock-A-My-Soul 5CD Box Set (CD)


    In the 1950s, a quartet from Memphis, Tennessee changed the face of American gospel music. They brought the excitement and passion of gospel to millions, finding a huge national following for white Southern gospel music. Young Elvis Presley had his heart set on joining, and was a regular backstage visitor. They were The Blackwood Brothers.

    For the first fifteen years, the Blackwood Brothers travelled to small town church concerts, got up early for local radio shows, and sold songbooks out of the trunk of their car. Then, in 1950 they moved to Memphis, and suddenly things began to change. Their music was infused with a new energy, influenced by the Memphis scene of blues, jazz, R&B, and black gospel. They went where no white quartet had gone before.

    The Blackwoods took songs at the fastest tempo, and always had the hottest piano player. They had the most animated stage act, jumping around, bending over backwards, throwing the microphone stand back and forth. They had the most daring, the most complex, and most unique arrangements, often ending on breathtaking high sustained harmonies. They also had the most diverse repertoire, drawing from the rich heritage of black gospel music They sounded like no other group in music, and created a style that was the Blackwood Brothers.

    This set comprises the Blackwoods’ complete Victor recordings from 1952 to 1959, and includes all-time favorites like Rock-a-My Soul, It Is No Secret, Mansion Over the Hilltop, Swing Down Chariot, Take My Hand Precious Lord, My God Is Real, His Hand in Mine, How Great Thou Art and other songs later popularized by Elvis Presley. This set also includes all of the Blackwoods’ early albums.

    Also included is a 82-page book, researched and written by Charles K. Wolfe, together with a complete discography by Paul Davis & Richard Weize and many unpublished photos.

  • Domino Fats - Imperial Singles Vol 2 (CD)


    The first volume in this series (CDCHD 597) took us from Fats’ debut single. The Fat Man which was recorded in 1949, through to his 14th release in 1952. Volume 2 contains recordings made up to November 1955. This period saw Fats cross over from the R&B charts to the Top 20 pop charts with Ain’t It A Shame, which reached number 10 in July 1955. Another milestone, is the first (78 rpm) Domino single to gain release in Britain on the London label in February 1954, Rose Mary b/w You Said You Love Me. This CD presents a wonderful melange of blues, R&B and rock’n’roll which can be summarised under the title of the joyful Professor Longhair anthem, Mardi Gras In New Orleans. The rationale behind these releases is to provide Fats’ singles in chronological order for the first time, showing the development of his sound, style and career through time. It’s well known that Imperial speeded up Fats’ singles in the rock’n’roll era in order to give his voice a lighter, more commercial sound. The first track to be so ’doctored’ was the aforementioned Ain’t It A Shame. It is, however, less known that when earlier singles subsequently appeared on Imperial’s late 50s LP reissues they too were speeded up. And it’s those LP versions that have been reissued again ever since, including those on the comprehensive Bear Family box set. Now, with the help of expert researchers Dave Sax and Victor Pearlin, the original singles have been timed and the tracks have been remastered at the original speed. This work shows enormous dedication to the recreation of the original sound! In addition to both sides of the 14 singles, two high quality bonus tracks, Swanee River Hop and if You Need Me, are included and, for the first time on reissue, the instrumental introduction to I Lived My Life can be heard. Furthermore, a lot of new information is provided in the fascinating and highly detailed notes written by Domino biographer Rick Coleman. Fats Domino’s smile is devastating, his music is uplifting and he remains a unique artist with an immediately recognisable sound. This CD covers a historic period of his career where he started the move from gutsy boogie’n’blues to rock’n’roll,from black audiences to world-wide super-stardom. It’s another vivid snapshot of rock’n’roll history and portends Fats’ influence on the forthcoming sound of swamp-pop. Let’s all go to the Mardi Gras!
