  • Barrence Whitfield And The Savages - Dig Everything! The Early Rounder Albums (CD)

    18,00

    The Wild Man Of Boston’s second and third albums on CD for the first time.

    When Barrence Whitfield and the Savages came blasting out of Boston, Massachusetts in the early 1980s they brought the world exactly the kind of high-octane rhythm and blues (with a little rock’n’roll on the side, just for good measure) of which it was in desperate need. The impact of their all-action live shows was reinforced by a trio of albums that scythed through the sterility of a studio and served up a very close approximation of what you could expect from them on stage. They still do, for that matter.

    After their initial onslaught, Barrence and the band took a 22-year break, reuniting after Ace had reissued their first independently produced album to great acclaim. It’s gratifying to know that we were instrumental in helping them get their groove back – and obviously to great effect, as they are still together and releasing great albums.

    The guys are currently putting the finishing touches to a new one for release on Chicago’s Bloodshot Records. For now, though, we’re delighted to bring together on CD their first two albums for Rounder Records: “Dig Yourself” and “Call Of The Wild”, both first issued in the mid-1980s.

    Barrence and the Savages still perform many of the songs featured on these two albums in their current live set, including Don Covay’s ‘Rockin’ The Mule Back In Kansas’ and their own ‘Stop Twisting My Arm’, ‘Big Mamou’, ‘Juicy Fruit’ and the ever-popular floor-filler ‘Bloody Mary’. Both albums still sound as vibrant and essential as they did when recorded more than 30 years ago. It’s worth noting that “Dig Yourself” has surprisingly never been released anywhere in the world on CD before, while “Call Of The Wild” is being reissued for the first time in its original running order.

    If you are looking for some background listening, please do not buy this compact disc. Here are 17 songs that need to be listened to as loudly – and frequently – as possible. If your neighbours complain, ask them in, hand them a beer, turn it up even louder and invite them to “Dig Everything” about Barrence Whitfield and the Savages.

  • Barrence Whitfield And The Savages - Soul Flowers Of Titan (CD)

    15,00

    Limited 180gm vinyl LP pressing including digital download. Titan is the largest moon orbiting Saturn, a planet which astrologically symbolizes pain, struggle and hard knocks on the human path to wholeness, and liberation among many other things. Soul Flowers of Titan is a collection of songs representing cosmology, struggles and influences. People shooting guns, separating, coming home (someday), in love, running around, leaving this earth, going crazy, drinking coffee, and thinking about Sun Ra. Titan’s a forbidding, poisonous place with mountains, rivers and oceans of methane and ammonia, cloaked in a dense shroud of gases. The kinds of flowers that would grow there would be the hardy beasts that survived to make this strange bouquet.

    18,00

    Esikoisalbumi! sekä ennenjulkaisemattomia! * A specially extended reissue for the 1984 album Barrence Whitfield And The Savages”.

    * Originally released on the Mamou label, this enhanced edition, co-ordinated by the album’s producer (and Savage guitarist) Peter Greenberg, almost doubles the original album’s 30 minute playing time.

    * Tracks 14 and 15 are out-takes from the original album, while tracks 16-18 are previously unreleased earlier recordings. Tracks 19-23 are live recordings.

    * The album’s release in 1984 led DJ Andy Kershaw to pronounce it the greatest rock’n’roll record he had ever heard. He brought the band to the UK and Robert Plant and Elvis Costello could be seen grooving at gigs.”
