  • Papa & Bo Weavil Jackson - Why Do You Moan When You Can Shake That Thing? 4CD Box set (CD)

    30,00

    Why Do You Moan When You Can Shake That Thing – Papa & Bo Weavil Jackson: 4CD Set Rural blues from two masters. Here’s the rowdy, spirited and downright bawdy version of the blues that both singers took to audiences all over the South. Papa Charlie worked in travelling shows for at least a decade before he entered the recording studio. His records were instantly popular – but with the Depression, his star waned. These sides see Papa Charlie performing with the likes of Ida Cox, Freddie Keppard, Lucille Bogan and Ma Rainey – a measure of the esteem in which he was held. Bo Weavil Jackson is, like many early blues performers, a man shrouded in mystery. Little is known of his life before or after these recordings, except that he may well have been a native of Birmingham Alabama.. What we can say with certainty is that he had a superb (and surprisingly modern) guitar technique and a compelling singing voice.

  • Various - The Little Red Box of Protest Songs 3CD + DVD boxset (CD)

    22,00

    `The Little Red Song Book’ first appeared in the US in 1909. It contained songs that took traditional hymns and set pro-Union work songs to them to be sung at rallies and demonstrations across America for the Industrial Workers of the World party: the `Wobblies’. The most famous song writer in the movement was Joe Hill whose infamous death made him a legend to future protest singers such as Seeger & Guthrie who took the Wobblies ideals into the Forties and Fifties on the New York Folk scene.

    Black artists moved from the South looking for fairer working and living conditions and they teamed up with Seeger and Guthrie and the rest to add their voice to what was fast becoming a major movement. The powers that be felt threatened by the movement and its momentum was lost as the `Red Scare’ swept away any liberal minded artists and individuals.

    Seeger, however, managed to emerge again in the late Fifties and early Sixties to help usher in a new wave of protest song with artists like Bob Dylan taking the message and spreading it across the world.

    Although the songs on this collection are from a bygone era the messages they convey and the struggles they highlight are still scarily relevant in today’s world and remind of us a time when people thought music really could make a difference to peoples lives and attitudes.

  • Patton Charley - The Definitive 3CD + DVD Boxset (CD)

    22,00

    CD Description

    This year marks the 75th anniversary of the ’Father of the Delta Blues’, Charley Patton. Patton was not the first Mississippi Bluesmen to record but he was without doubt the most important. Through his songbook and performances the Blues in the Delta became a major movement and many of the greatest artists from that region owe a great debt to Charley Patton. Son House, Robert Johnson, Tommy Johnson, Howlin’ Wolf and just about any other Delta Blues artist from the first half of the last century all have Patton to thank for his groundbreaking work.

    Although he was definitely a pioneer Patton himself had influences and on this set we not only look at those artists that followed in his wake but also his contemporaries and those that came before him. Patton borrowed music or lyrics from many artists including Ma Rainey, Bessie Smith, Blind Lemon Jefferson, the Mississippi Sheiks, Blind Willie Johnson, Jim Jackson and many more.

    This 60 track set contains many of Patton’s best known songs as well as the sources for those songs and covers or variants by those artists that came after him. Also included is the DVD, ’Talkin’ Patton’, that contains interviews with musicians, musicologists, blues scholars and Delta historians and contains brand new footage of Dockery’s, the legendary plantation where Patton was raised and where many people believe the Delta Blues truly blossomed as an art form.

  • Various - Steelin` It – The Steel Guitar Story 4CD Boxset (CD)

    22,00

    The steel guitar is a predominant instrument in country music, but it had its origins in Hawaii. It was Mexican settlers who introduced the Spanish guitar to Hawaii, where they were modified by raising both the bridge and head nut. A head nut converter nut was used to raise the height of the strings by about half an inch, and the instrument was played on the lap, hence the Lap Steel Guitar”. Joseph Kekuku was credited by many as the inventor of the lap steel guitar in 1889. allegedly he was walking along a railroad track strumming his guitar when he spotted a bolt lying on the ground. He picked up the bolt and slid it along the strings. Intrigued by the sound this created he taught himself to play with the back of a knife blade. In 1904 he left Hawaii for mainland America and over the next 15 years taught a whole host of people how to play the guitar Hawaiian style. He went on to tour Europe and played at the London Palladium and the Café

    de Paris, before returning to the USA in the late ’20s, settling in Chicago. He died in 1932 aged 58 of a brain haemorrhage. Others who have also been given credit in the late 19th century for formulating the steel guitar Charles E. King credited with being the originator of playing the guitar with a knife (circa 1885), albeit he conceded that Kekuku was the actual inventor of the Hawaiian guitar per se. The third claimant to inventing the steel guitar was Hawaiian James Hoa who was of Portuguese origins, who it was claimed by David M. Kupihea in an article in the Honolulu Advertiser in 1932,

    invented the instrument in 1876. However this claim is the least feasible one of the three. The instrument came over in force to mainland America in 1915 when Hawaiian groups appeared at the Panama-Pacific International Exposition in San Francisco. The instrument was picked up by blues and Western Swing bands as well as country artists such as Jimmie Rodgers. It also found its way into pop music as well as African (especially Nigeria’s Jùjú music) and Indian music. In the

    ’30s the hollow body instrument was supplanted by a flat wooden slab with an electric pickup. The likes of Adolph Rickenbacher, Paul Bigsby and Leo Fender helped develop and manufacture the first popular electric steel guitars. These were known as laptop steel guitars.

  • Various - Rock`n`Skiffle-Brit Beat Beginnings 4CDBoxset (CD)

    20,00

    Lonnie Donegan, Tommy Steele, Lita Roza, Winifred Atwell, Red Price, Tony Crombie, Alma Cogan, Bert Weedon, Beryl Bryden and Ray Ellington are part of the colourful line up of musical talent from a wide musical spectrum that stood at the cradle of British Beat. The 1950s was an extraordinary decade in the history of British popular music. On the one hand it was still basically a forum for ’light entertainment’ as conceived by Tin Pan Alley moguls and broadcast by Aunty BBC. At the same time the post-war sounds of rhythm ’n’ blues and rock ’n’ roll were starting to wing their way across the Atlantic and a new generation of British teenagers (a hitherto unclassified market) was restlessly shuffling off the old order and demanding a change of pace. The result was a kaleidoscope of revolutionary good-time looseness in the form of skiffle, a lot of cover versions of contemporary US hits (ranging from the remarkably competent to laughably inept), some outright parodies, and the first stirrings of home grown rock ’n’ roll. It’s all here in his evocative, 100 track set with 40 page booklet. Pay no heed to romanticists, this is how it really was.
