  • Fabian - This Is… (Käytetty CD)

    10,00

    A fistful of Fabian on this chunky, hunky 26 tracker, for lovers of teen idols the world over. They don’t come much more teen idol than Fabian. Fabian’s career was launched in 1958 with I’m A Man”, which was barely true for one so young. It scored a not so resounding top 31 position on the Billboard charts, but that did not get the young idol down and he swiftly recovered with a number 9 smash ”Turn Me Loose”, followed three months later with his biggest smash, ”Tiger Man” which hit the number 3 slot. By the end of 59 he had had his last top 10 hit with ”Hound Dog Man”, which was also his only U.K. chart appearance. By the end of 1960 the hits had dried up and with ”Kissin’ & Twistin” his meteoric 22 month career had peaked. So a career that was short, undoubtedly sweet, not I must say distinguished by the best singing of our time, but endearing, and featuring some real neat guitar playing. Teen innocence, where are you now?”

  • Darin Bobby - Live! At the Desert Inn (Käytetty CD)

    10,00

    In the early ’70s, Bobby Darin had discontinued his infamous Bob Darin” billing, but he was still interpolating the best of the late-’60s folk and singer/songwriter scene into his live act — this despite playing to the mostly middle-aged, craps-playing audience assembled at the Desert Inn in Las Vegas for an early 1971 run. Darin had more than a decade’s worth of hits to reprise for the crowd, and he did so happily, from ”Mack the Knife” to ”If I Were a Carpenter” and even including ”Splish Splash” (as part of a rock and soul encore). But beyond not wishing to begrudge a fandom that had been left behind by the era of progressive rock, Darin most certainly did his best to entertain and enlighten his regular concert attendees — musically, socially, and even politically — without worrying about the blowback from his largely conservative base. It also earned him enmity in progressive circles as a faker, although with his performance Darin makes it clear that he has nothing to apologize for. After all, he was, at heart, a showman pure and simple. He starts the concert with an urgent plaint from the pen of Laura Nyro (”Save the Country”) and, after inserting ”Mack the Knife” as a sop to his fans, returns to the singer/songwriter crowd with James Taylor’s ”Fire and Rain.” A Beatles medley appears halfway through the set, as does Jackie Wilson’s ”(Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher and Higher” and Dylan’s ”I’ll Be Your Baby Tonight,” all of them performed with too much reverence, but also a fine ear for what made those songs examples of great American pop. [Live! at the Desert Inn was projected to be Darin’s first album release for Motown, and although it was pressed or planned twice (once under the present title, once as Finally), it was shelved until it finally appeared in 1987 (on Motown) and again in 2005 (on Concord), the latter with several bonus tracks.]”

  • Various - Nashville Rockabilly 1957-1959 (Käytetty CD)

    10,00

    Loistava kokoelma Nashville rockabilly aarteita vuosilta 1957-1959. Rockabilly music has always been associated with the state of Tennessee, but primarily with the city of Memphis where Elvis Presley and Sun Records kicked it into high gear in the mid 1950s. But like any other form of music, especially the peculiar American mongrel hybrids like rock n’ roll, rhythm & blues, country & western, jazz, etc., it didn’t spring forth fully formed. Rockabilly had its roots in the hillbilly boogie music of the late 1940s and early 1950s, and much of that music was recorded in Nashville by record companies like Bullet, Tennessee and Republic. Included here are Baker Knight’s earliest recordings and when they started to garner a little airplay and sales they were licensed to major label Decca Records. The Whitey Pullen, Tommy Jay, Jan Smith and Big C. tracks were produced by Red Wortham for his Delta and Sur-Speed imprints. Red had worked at Bullet Records in the early 1950s and started Delta Records in the mid fifties after Bullet folded. The Whitey Pullen track is his first recording and dates from 1957. It shows him straddling the line between rockabilly and hillbilly bop. Pullen went on to become one of the seminal rock ’n rollers and toured Europe and the UK. The Moon Mullican, Jerry Foster and Nashville Country Jamboree tracks are from the vaults of Spar Records. Spar was founded in 1961 by veteran record men William Beasley and Alan Bubis. They had formed the Tennessee and Republic record companies in the early fifties and Bubis had the Champion label in the late 1950s. Spar, and its many subsidiaries, was started in 1961. They were very ambitious and recorded and released virtually every kind of popular music of the day. By the mid 1960s they were selling over a million records every month. Moon Mullican had been knocking around the record business since the 1940s and had several big hits in the late forties and early fifties. A piano playing wild man, he was quite an influence on many of the next generation of rock n’ rollers, most notably Buddy Holly and Jerry Lee Lewis. The Nashville Country Jamboree recorded a series of very popular albums and 8-track tapes up into the early 1970s when Spar eventually closed up shop. These recordings feature the cream of the crop studio musicians of the day, mostly the guys that came to be known as The Area Code 615 Band

  • Fuller Jerry - A Double Life-The Challange Recordings 1959-1966 (Käytetty CD)

    11,00

    Jerry Fuller enjoyed modest hits between 1959 and 1961 with ’Betty My Angel’, ’Tennessee Waltz’, ’Guilty Of Loving You’ and the very Gene Pitneyesque ’Shy Away’, all prime examples of the kind of records you’d expect to find on one of Ace’s Teenage Crush” compilations. ”A Double Life”, the first ever collection of the Texas-born singer’s recordings cut during his sevenyear tenure at Challenge Records of Los Angeles, includes all four of those, plus a whole lot more. I say singer, but Jerry Fuller was a man of many talents – he wrote or co-wrote about half of the songs included here and was also pretty hot as a producer. The typical Ace customer might be aware of his name via great songs like ’Travelin’ Man’ and ’A Wonder Like You’, which he wrote for his friend Ricky Nelson. Others will be familiar with Gary Puckett’s ’Young Girl’ and ’Lady Willpower’, which Jerry also penned, or the Knickerbockers’ quasi-Merseybeat nugget ’Lies’ and OC Smith’s ’The Son Of Hickory Holler’s Tramp’, Fuller productions both. Then, of course, there are the fans of blue-eyed Northern soul and Popcorn who have been lapping up Jerry’s own recordings of ’I Get Carried Away’, ’What Happened To The Music’ and the 100 mph Motown-esque stomper ’Double Life’ for many years. ’I Dreamed About My Lover’ and ’Anna From Louisiana’ strike me as prime contenders for the Popcorn scene too. Maybe if Fuller hadn’t been so busy writing for and producing other artists, or if Uncle Sam hadn’t stalled his recording career by calling him up in 1961, he might have stood a chance of becoming LA’s answer to Gene Pitney, for if epics of pop melodrama like ’Hollywood Star’ are anything to go by, he sure had what it took. A key record in the story of Challenge Records is the Champs’ ’Tequila’, which Jerry cut in a vocal version in 1964. In fact, the various members of the Champs play on numerous of the more rocking selections here, so followers of that group need to investigate the collection further. Elsewhere you get ’The Master Plan’ and ’Man In Black’, jangling message songs redolent of PF Sloan or Sonny & Cher, plus a healthy shot of clean-cut teen fare, including ’Above And Beyond’ and ’One Heart’, duets with Diane Maxwell, a Connie Francis wannabe par excellence. Other highlights include the Little Anthony-styled ’I Get Carried Away’, the PJ Proby-penned ’I Only Came To Dance With You’ and, maybe the classiest track Jerry ever recorded, ’Turn To Me’, a big beat ballad with a sumptuous production worthy of the Righteous Brothers. The booklet makes for an excellent read too, based upon recent interviews with Jerry Fuller. By Mick Patrick”

  • Burgess Sonny And The Legendary Pacers - Gijon Stomp! (Käytetty CD)

    10,00

    Sonny Burgess and the Pacers…and they said Elvis sounded like a black man.You could say when you’re a few years over retirement age you’d wanna be like Sonny Burgess and The Pacers. You’d wish you had the energy, the enthusiasum, the style, the charm, the sense of fun. You probably should be saying that now, even if you’re like 25, because clearly, most of us don’t.I knew they were coming to Spain to play the Crossroad 2007 Festival. I was excited about them playing in my new neighborhood, Asturias. With all the members averaging over 70 years old, I wondered if they still had it.” I’d always loved the soound of their records, always tougher, grittier and bluesier than anyone else in the Sun Records stable. They had this intense beat, wild screaming and cornball trumpet that always made me feel like there was a party that I should have been at, a party I had missed.In September 2007 they took the flights from Little Rock, Arkansas to Atlanta, to Madrid, then up to Asturias on a Thursday. Friday they hauled their merchandise, set up a table, signed autographs, talked and posed for pictures with their Spanish fans. Saturday they stole the show at Crossroad, blasting out the most authentic Rock and Roll heard in 3 days, easily smearing groups a quarter of their age. During the set they blew out the power generator for the whole festival, then came back without missing a beat to finish off the crowd, who waited in the dark for the show to go on. Then more merch, photos, autographs, handshaking until the wee hours of Sunday morning. After a few hours of sleep they made thier way to Circo Perrotti Studios in Gijon to blast out these 9 songs. These guys got right down to work- real pros with thousands of gigs under their belts. They hauled in their own gear, got settled down in the studio and started busting each others balls like they were teenagers, as they hammered out songs they hadn´t even played live before. When it was time to break and treat them to a nice Asturian lunch, they asked me if I could set them up with some Diet Cokes and Snickers bars, because they didn´t want to stop playing! When they did stop, it was back to the hotel in Oviedo for 5 hours sleep and 4 connecting flights to Arkansas the next morning.That afternoon I heard the kind of Rock and Roll that after years of working in the studio, many attempted to duplicate. Most failed. There behind the studio glass were the people responsible for inventing it. Jorge and I furiously rolled tape trying to keep the pace with The Pacers.The sound shook the studio and immediately transported me back to the US of A. A rock solid backbeat and a Jimmy Reed shuffle that no drummer in this country could master. Roadhouse piano that was up to snuff with The Killer’s wildest pounding. A Hillbilly yodel cured for years in Arkansas corn likker, drenched in tape echo. And a blues holler, well, that made Elvis sound a little more like Pat Boone and a little less than Arthur ”Big Boy” Crudup.This was not the normal noise you hear on a Sunday in our barrio in Gijon. Or London, or New York or even Memphis anymore, for that matter. This was some archaic language that only the elders could speak and the youngsters could only hope to understand.Damas y Caballeros, se llama ”Rock and Roll.””
