  • Stomp Gordon - Damp Rag – The Killa Dilla From Columbus, Ohio (10″LP + CD) (10``LP)


    1-LP vinyl (10inch) with 8-page booklet, bonus CD, postcard. 10 tracks (LP), 22 tracks (CD). Total playing time approx. 28 min. (LP), approx. 70 min. (CD).

    It is one of the fundamental principles of Bear Family Records® to give room to artists who would otherwise remain undiscovered in the jungle of reissues.
    We present on LP plus bonus CD the complete works of pianist and jump blues shouter Stomp Gordon, whose stage show eclipsed even the piano attacks of Jerry Lee Lewis, the ’Killer’!
    On LP and CD combined, we deliver those 17 recordings Stomp Gordon made between 1952 and 1956 for Decca, Mercury, Chess and Savoy – there’s no more material out there!
    In addition to the 17 recordings by Stomp Gordon, there are 5 more bonus tracks by other performers, covering, among other things, the U.S. television series ’Dragnet’ and Dr. Kinsey and his ’Kinsey Report’.
    For the first time ever, a complete vinyl LP is dedicated to Stomp Gordon!
    The liner notes were written by R&B and blues expert Bill Dahl from Chicago.
    The 10″ LP includes a booklet, a CD and a postcard.

    In four short years, piano-pounding jump blues shouter Stomp Gordon made enough of an impression on record buyers and a Bear Family Records® LP completely dedicated to him was long overdue. Stomp earned his nickname: he pounded the 88s with his bare feet onstage.

    The Columbus, Ohio native’s performing attire was as wild as anyone’s this side of Cab Calloway, and his houserocking music reflected that flamboyance. Recording for Decca, Mercury, Chess, and Savoy between 1952 and ’56, Stomp roared his way through Damp Rag, Oooh Yes!, Hide The Bottle, The Grind, and Ride Superman, Ride with an intensity that presaged rock and roll, often aided by his faithful tenor saxman Little Hiawatha Edmondson.

    Stomp should have been a primordial rock and roll star, but his career was cut way short when he was found dead in his parked car on a Harlem thoroughfare, aged only 31. But the man with the magical tootsies packed some serious rocking into a tragically truncated timeframe—and all his great sides are on full display here.

  • Walker T-Bone - Classics In Jazz (Ltd.) (10``LP)


    What DiMaggio was to baseball, what Lindbergh was to aviation, Aaron (T-Bone) Walker is to the Blues. No orthodox singer, T- Bone has no eyes — never did have — for croon-ing Hit Parade ballads of the moment. His forte is the twelve-bar Blues, which he treats three ways while accompanying himself on a polished electrically amplified guitar. T-Bone’s ”ways” include (1) fast Blues, (2) slow Blues and (3) slowest Blues, and he wheels ’em and deals ’em. more times than not, in precisely that order.& ,

    With Les Hite’s California orchestra, then in the 1940s with Freddie Slack, Walker attracted unusual attention as a guitarist and Blues bawler. Finally, as it must to all deserving men, success brought success to T-Bone and his titanic talents. He went out on his own, ”just for myself,” and recorded a dozen or more best-selling records among his other accomplishments. The best of these are presented between these covers.

    & ,The Blues, T-Bone is adamant, can mean most anything lyrically. Happy times, frustrating times, plain bad times. You’ll hear these moods— and more — as T-Bone paints pictures in indigo throughout the selections within this package. Onstage …Center … Front …The Great T-Bone and his Guitar!

  • Various - Graveyard Tramps Eat The Forbidden City Dog Food DOUBLE (2 x 10″LP) (10``LP)


    Nearly 30 years ago, a now legendary LP by the name of ‘Forbidden City Dogfood’ was unleashed on an unsuspecting public. The release on VIP VOP Recs spawned many imitators such as ‘Wavy Gravy, 4 Hairy Policemen et al’ and paved the way for the equally legendary ‘Purple Knif Show’…

    What few folk knew was that ‘Forbidden City Dogfood’ was actually less than half of the compilation made by Lux Interior…Here for the very first time the entire recording is now available, fully complete and weighing in at well over an hour of crazy, whacky sounds from the Maestro of Mad himself.

    Remastered from the original source, these obscure Rockabilly, Surf, R&B tracks will wow you now as then…interspersed with B-Movie trailer clips and wigged out voice overs, you just know it’s better than good !…..Won’t be around for long, so get it while you can.

  • Various - The Weekend Starts Here! – Mod Sounds From The Late 50s And Early 60’s (10``LP)


    Strictly limited to 500 copies!

    On this limited edition 10“ you’ll hear tunes the Modernist cherished in the early 60’s. An ultracool mix of danceable Rhythm & Blues, Hammond Jazz, raw electric Blues from labels like Chess and Excello and something that mutated into Soul in the years to come. As there was no proper distribution at the time and one could not fly to the United States to buy records like today (prices for flights were enormous) these tunes could only be heard in Clubs like The Scene or Flamingo spun by forward thinking DJ’s like Guy Stevens.

    Mod is a subculture that began in London in 1958 and spread throughout Great Britain and elsewhere, eventually influencing fashions and trends in other countries, and continues today on a smaller scale. Focused on music and fashion, the subculture has its roots in a small group of stylish London-based young men in the late 1950s who were termed modernists because they listened to Modern Jazz. Significant elements of the mod subculture include fashion (often tailor-made suits); music (including Soul, Ska, and R&B); and motor scooters (usually Lambretta or Vespa(. The original mod scene was associated with amphetamine-fuelled all-night dancing at clubs.“ (Wikipedia)

  • Miss La Velle - Stolen Love (10``LP)


    New delivery of the series Ten X Ten dedicated to great artists, this new reference is for Miss La Velle where you will be able to discover great subjects for the first time together in a record.

    Miss Lavelle White is the real deal: a living legend and queen of soul and blues whose rich history as a singer and songwriter is matched by the music she makes today. Emerging in the late 1950s on Houston’s legendary Duke Records, White has worked and toured with many of the great names of black music and spent a decade as the house singer at Chicago’s renowned Kingston Mines blues mecca. Since (finally) releasing her first album on Antone’s Records in 1994, she has proven to be a dynamic exemplar of the continuing allure and vitality of the African American musical tradition. Now, with Into The Mystic, Miss Lavelle (as she is known) serves up a delicious buffet of R&B, gospel, funk and even country on which she matches the timeless hits she covers with songs of her own to create a definitive modern soul document. With considerable pop lan firmly planted in her deep roots, White fixes her signature to such classics as the Box Tops hit ”Soul Deep,” Van Morrison’s” Into The Mystic” and Stevie Wonder’s ”Livin’ For The City.” She revives the spirit of Edwin Hawkins’ ”Oh Happy Day” and touches the divine on her own ”Lord I Want To Thank You,” and conversely defines the sound of country soul on Merle Haggard’s ”Today I Started Loving You.” On an album that travels from her native Mississippi Delta on the sparse country-blues of ”Love In Return” to contemporary travails on” Computer Blues,” Lavelle White’s exceptional voice and pen keep the soul sound alive and kicking in this new century. Hailed as an avatar of ”true blues and a class act” (Portland Oregonian), Lavelle White knows of all that she sings. Born in Amite, Louisiana, she grew up in the cotton fields and churches of Louisiana and Mississippi, the daughter of a gospel piano playing single mother. In her mid-teen years, White relocated to Houston, where she sneaked out of the house at night to feast on the city’s vibrant and influential Gulf Coast mix of blues, soul and pop. Taken under wing by Clarence Hollimon and Johnny Copeland and mixing with such musical giants as Albert Collins and Guitar Slim, she began singing in clubs and won a deal with Don Robey’s Duke label in1958. Her six-year tenure with Duke as ”Miss La Vell” resulted in such self-penned hits as ”If I Could Be With You” masterfully reprised on Into The Mystic ”Stop These Teardrops” and ”Yes, I’ve Been Crying.” But she never released a full album of what L.A. Weekly later called ”a jazz-tinged, passionate, altogether beguiling brand of blues.” She also wrote Bobby ”Blue” Bland’s classic ”Lead Me On” (prompted by the death of her mother) but was robbed of credit when Robey attached his nom de plume to the song. She shared stages with James Brown, Aretha Franklin, Otis Redding, The Drifters, Sam Cooke, B. B. King, The Isley Brothers, Freddie King, Bobby Womack, Gladys Knight and others, and continued to work the Texas clubs as the spotlight faded, dedicated to her mission of bringing real music to the people. In 1978, White picked up a gig at Kingston Mines while visiting family in the Windy City and was asked to be the club’s house singer. There she worked with legends like Lonnie Brooks, Buddy Guy and Junior Wells while also touring Europe with Larry Davis. In 1987, she moved back to Texas to enjoy a stunning career revival thanks to what Orange County Weekly calls perhaps her ”greatest gift” of bringing ”credibility back to a style of music that’s too often taken for granted.” Soon after her return to the Lone Star State, Clifford Antone booked White into his Antone’s nightclub in Austin, where she found herself amidst a community of younger admirers. Lou Ann Barton cut White’s ”Stop These Teardrops” on her 1982 Elektra Records debut, Old Enough and Barton, Angela Strehli and Marcia Ball later recorded her ”Gonna Make It” on their collaboration Dreams Come True. In 1994, White finally released her first-ever album, Miss Lavelle, to considerable praise. Jazz & Blues Report hailed it as ”one of the tastiest R&B finds of the year,” while the Haight Ashbury Free Press noted it as ”one of the strongest and most honest blues CDs to come through my door.” She followed it in 1996 with another triumph It Haven’t Been Easy , which CMJ/New Music Report crowned as ”a classic album indeed” an d Houston’s Public News trumpeted as ”one of the finest soul music albums ever heard.” The albums earned White long overdue recognition as what one critic calls ”much more than a lady of soul.” She received four W.C. Handy Award nominations, and was honored in France with three prestigious honors: The Otis Redding Award from the Academy of Jazz, the Big Bill Broonzy Award, and the Charles Cross Award, presented by the French President. She was also inducted into the Austin Music Hall of Fame in 1996 and named Houston’s 1995 Blues Artist of the Year, and has been featured on Austin City Limits. Yet even with a legacy and legend second to none, White continues to make music both for our times and history with Into The Mystic. ”You’ve got to take that stuff and do it in a new way,” she explains of her rich tradition. ”I’m very excited with this CD.” Hence Lavelle White continues on her musical mission thanks to her abiding faith in God and dedication to ”entertaining the people and making them feel good and seeing the smiles on their faces. And seeing ’em dance, seeing ’em holler back at me and all that kind of stuff. I love that. I’m out there for them,” says Miss Lavelle of her public. And as for herself, ”No matter what happens I’m being blessed,” she concludes. ”And I’m thankful.” Lavelle White Biography – J.W. Entertainment
