Cochran Wayne - Same (180 gram, Gatefold) (LP)
Signed by Chess, Cochran and the Riders released their first LP in 1967. Produced by Abner Spector with sessions at Miami’s Criteria Studios and Muscle Shoals’ Fame Studios, the cleverly-titled ”Wayne Cochran” offered up a mix of popular R&B and soul songs which apparently served as a reflection of the group’s live act. To be honest, if you were looking for something original and ground breaking, this wasn’t the place to start. While Cochran’s performances were quite energetic (having one of the era’s tightest backing bands certainly didn’t hurt), none of the twelve arrangements strayed far from the originals. I’m guessing that most of the things that supposedly made these guys such a killer live act simply couldn’t be replicated on vinyl – not to imply that the collection was bad. It wasn’t. Individually most of the songs were quite good, but it you were familiar with the originals, stripped of Cochran’s in-concert craziness, they simply couldn’t compete.
Cochran Wayne - Goin` Back To Miami – The Soul Sides 1965-1970 (2CD) (CD)€25,00
Widely acknowledged as one of the wildest performers of the 1960s, Wayne Cochran’s renowned showmanship never translated into hit records, but his various recordings for the Mercury, Chess and King labels are nevertheless compelling glimpses of the wild style which wowed clubs audiences across the United States in the latter half of the 60s. The purple period of this outrageously-bouffanted blue-eyed soul man’s career is documented on the first disc of Ace’s 2 CD anthology Goin Back To Miami, which collects the choicest sides the singer cut in the R&B style in the last half of the 60s, including the regional hits Harlem Shuffle and Goin Back To Miami, prime cuts from his eponymous 1968 album, partly recorded at Fame in Muscle Shoals, and a dozen tracks completely new to CD, including several unissued titles. In 1968, Cochran took his crack outfit the CC Riders into uncharted territory Las Vegas. Rather than toning down his act, the singer introduced the staid casino showrooms to his version of soul and made enough noise for Elvis Presley to come and take a look. The second disc of this package is an amazing find from the King vaults: a full live-in-the-studio document of Cochran’s Vegas routine, complete with the singer’s funky downhome patter, and CC Rider takes on numerous Stax and Motown items. Complete with detailed liner notes and plenty of eye-popping illustrations including photos of Cochran getting his famous do worked on Goin Back To Miami is the definitive document of this great entertainer’s golden era.
