  • Skyliners - Voices in Harmony 1958-1962 (CD)


    The Skyliners were a five-piece vocal harmony group from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania that broke the mould as far as the doo-wop sound was concerned.

    ’Since I Don’t Have You’ romped to number 12 on Billboard’s Hot 100 and featured the unique voices of lead singer Jimmy Beaumont and Janet Vogel.

    ’Since I Don’t Have You’ remains a classic recording and has been featured in films such as American Graffiti, The Age of Adaline, The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai, Lethal Weapon 2, and TV shows such as Happy Days, American Hot Wax and Outcast.

    Fans continue to keep the group’s name alive with its own Facebook page…they remain one of the classiest vocal groups ever.

    This 26 track collection chronicles The Skyliners singles released on the Calico label, added to which are the songs that appeared on their first LP and subsequent releases on the Colpix, Cameo and Viscount labels.

    This release is sure to result in radio play on oldies shows across the UK radio networks.

  • Various - Killer B’s US R&B Hits (CD)


    There are few record collecting experiences more enjoyable than discovering a great, long lost & forgotten gem, on the B-side of a classic, much-loved Hit.

    This compilation features 32 such killer flips, adorning various U.S. R&B hit 45s between 1954-1962.

    Many of these artistes, like Ben E. King, The Drifters, James Brown and Jackie Wilson, often enjoyed two-sided hits; yet these were B-sides that somehow got away.

    Singers like Dee Clark, Jerry Butler, Ruth Brown, Ray Charles, Roy Hamilton, Clyde McPhatter, LaVern Baker, The Shirelles, The Miracles, Mary Wells, The Marvelettes, Lloyd Price, Etta James, Bobby Bland, etc., were frequent R&B chart riders, while others, e.g. The Falcons, The Fiestas, Joe Henderson, were more-or-less One Hit Wonders.

    Many of the A-sides of these discs were million sellers, and all were massive U.S. R&B hits (many of which crossed over to the Top 100); yet all of these Killer Bs sound like they could have been hit records, in their own right.

  • Prima Louis - The Very Best of Louis Prima – Jump, Jive & Wail 1952-1959 (CD)


    Bandleader/singer/trumpeter LOUIS PRIMA, who’d enjoyed huge successes in the 1930s and ’40s, mounted a major comeback in the 1950s, after teaming up with Keely Smith and Sam Butera & The Witnesses.

    This compilation, which is one of a closely-linked trilogy, presents the Very Best of Prima’s solo recordings for Columbia, Jubilee and Capitol between 1952-59, with the emphasis very much on his 1956-59 Capitol output.

    It features pre-Capitol collectors’ items like ’The Bigger The Figure’, ’Luigi’ and ’Man, Dig That Crazy Chick’, although twenty-one of the twenty-five sides are from his Capitol output.

    These include singles like ’Buona Sera’ (a UK hit), ’5 Months, 2 Weeks, 2 Days’ and ’Banana Split For My Baby’, alongside tracks from the hit albums ’The Wildest’, ’The Call Of The Wildest’, ’The Wildest Show At Tahoe’, ’Las Vegas Prima Style’, ’Hey Boy! Hey Girl!’ and ’Strictly Prima’.

  • Larks - The Larks Collection 1950-55 (2CD) (CD)


    Hailing from North Carolina, the Larks were a classic African-American doowop group of the early 1950s, with their roots firmly in gospel, but moving to secular music to form The Larks, although their early recorded work ranged across both gospel and secular genres as they recorded under different names when they made their studio debut. Although they were not among the most prolific doowop hitmakers, their style and technique made them one of the most admired and imitated of the early doowop ensembles. This 48-track 2-CD set comprises the A & B sides of just about all their releases on the Apollo and in a second incarnation of the group under lead singer Eugene Mumford on the Apollo subsidiary label Lloyds, plus some titles from those labels which were not released at the time, along with recordings on Jubilee as The Selah Singers, on Regent as The 4 Barons, and on Apollo as The Southern Harmonaires. It features their Top 10 R&B hits Eyesight To The Blind and Little Side Car. It’s a substantial overview of their career – they broke up before their final release – and it’s a thorough and excellent showcase for their highly-regarded skills as vocal harmonisers.

  • Harrison Wilbert - Kansas City – The Best Of (3CD) (CD)


    Almost 70 Tracks includes 30 Previously Unavailable Songs.

    It s extremely unlikely that any other 1950s R&B artist blended quite as many disparate idiomatic influences into an instantly identifiable whole as Wilbert Harrison. Wilbert s skill on a variety of instruments was a key factor in his uncommon versatility. He played rolling piano on Kansas City and several of his followups for Bobby Robinson s Harlem-based Fury Records, but he was just as likely to utilize a guitar/harmonica combination that sometimes expanded into a one-man-band setup with the addition of hi-hat. Harrison wasn t afraid to incorporate instrumentation on his recordings that registered well outside the R&B mainstream. The end result still sounded like nobody but Wilbert as he made a slew of platters over the course of a recording career that spanned more than two decades.

    • Concentrated femininity creates wordless men: burlesque instrumentals by Sam ’The Man’ Taylor, Barney Kessel and the Upsetters are the answer.

    Erotic retrospect into earlier decades
    Eroticism and sexuality was officially not an issue in the first decades after the war. But unofficially, behind closed doors, in dark, smoky clubs, strip joints, and under the counter, they let it all hang out. They did it just as wildly as today, but not as obviously. They preferred to sing about it rather than talk about it behind closed doors, because music seemed to be more harmless, although these recordings show the opposite.
    Destination: Lust
    The erotic-slippery journey towards lust continues! Erotic voices, such as those of Pat Morrissey, Cleo Laine, Mabel Scott and of course Marilyn Monroe and Jayne Mansfield, make you want more. With so much concentrated femininity the men are left without words, and Sam ’The Man’ Taylor, Barney Kessel and Little Richard’s accompanying band The Upsetters respond with burlesque instrumentals. Dinah Washington sings ”the thing” to her boyfriend and Big Jay McNeely answers with ’Man Eater’. 

    The great listening pleasure also takes you into the rooms of sweet pain, Lincoln Chase’s rare recording ’Sweet Torture’ and ’Slave Chain’ by The Spinners. Ruth Wallis’ statement about the many varieties of sex: ’Man, It’s A Jungle’! We broke our way through the jungle of lustful music, and here again we combined very rare titles with nostalgic hits. Marilyn’s song ’I Want To Be Loved By You’ from the movie ’Some Like It Hot’ is legendary! And the rarities, some of them are here again on CD for the first time! 

    Among them a complete Pye single by Frances Day under the pseudonym Gale Warning, which contains a rare erotic version of Elvis Presley’s ’Heartbreak Hotel’. In addition recordings of Kay Martin, Felix and His Fabulous Cats and the Spanish Senoritas of Hermanas Serrano, who sing about the legendary ’Casanova’! A wicked atmosphere is created when mambo sounds, go-go sounds and tittyshakers alternate with orchestral numbers, be it Berlingeri with his orchestra, Diane Maxwell’s rare Challenge recording, or Que Martin and His Band. Another highlight is the British Peter Jay and The Jaywalkers, who not only take us back to the glory days of the Parisian Folies Bergère with their version of the French ’Can Can’, but also bring this compilation to a brilliant end. The CD comes with annotations for each song and many photos and illustrations in the 16-page booklet!
