  • Various - Stax Country (CD)

    18,00

    As part of Stax’s year-long, 60th anniversary celebration, this collection of long-lost gems from the latter days of the Stax empire, Stax Country highlights the Memphis soul label’s effort to branch out into country music. Although the majority of the tunes on this album never made it to the radio waves, the tracks here stand as a unique time capsule of early 70s country. Includes new liner notes by country biographer and Tony-award winning playwright Colin Escott.

  • Teddy & The Tigers - Dancing Shoes – The Complete Masters Collection 1977-1980 (3-CD) (CD)

    33,00

    RIP AIKKA HAKALA!

    Tässä kaikki Teddy & the Tigersin vuosina 1977-1980 julkaisemat äänitteet, yhteensä 79 kappaletta joista 24 on aiemmin CD:llä julkaisemattomia. Tämän keravalaistrion rooli 1950-luvun rock ’n’ rollin nousussa hetkeksi Suomessa mittavaksi muoti-ilmiöksi oli merkittävä ja yhtye myi lyhyessä ajassa lähes 100.000 levyä.

    Tamperelaisen levykaupppiaan Epe Heleniuksen vastaperustettu levy-yhtiö Poko Rekords julkaisi Tigersin Boppin’ –nimisen LP:n toukokuussa 1978, samanaikaisesti Eppu Normaalin debyyttialbumin kanssa. Boppin’ -levyn menestys antoi Pokolle lentävän lähdön. Levyn tuottoja investoitiin paitsi Eppu Normaaliin ja Popedaan myös Tigersin vielä jouluksi 1978 ilmestyneeseen toiseen albumiin Burn It Up, mikä räjäytti pankin lopullisesti. Levyn avauskappale Tiger Twist muodostui paitsi Tigersin, koko suomalaisen 1950-lukubuumin epäviralliseksi tunnuskappaleeksi, ja lennätti LP:n yli 35 000:n rockabillystä innostuneen suomalaisnuoren kotiin.

    Käytyään managerinsa Kari Heimosen johdolla syksyllä 1978 Lontoossa opintomatkalla katsomassa sen aikaisia brittiläisiä teddy boy -bändejä Tigers päätti kolmannella levyllään Rock-A-Billy Rebel hylätä balladit ja teinipopit ja sukeltaa rockabillyn rujoille alkulähteille. Omana aikanaankin suurelle yleisölle tuntemattomaksi jääneiltä artisteilta löydetyt primitiiviset lainabiisit olivat täysin uusia paitsi Tigersille, myös yhtyeen suomalaiselle yleisölle.

    Tukholmassa äänitetty ja toukokuussa 1979 ilmestynyt Rock-A-Billy Rebel –LP, saman vuoden syksyllä julkaistu Tiger Tracks sekä typistetyllä Tigers-nimellä tehty viides ja viimeinen albumi White Hot Rock (1980) ovat nyt julkaistavan uuden kokoelman kiehtovinta sisältöä siksi, etteivät ne ole olleet aiemmin saatavilla CD-muodossa. Nykyvinkkelistä kuunneltuna varsinkin Rock-A-Billy Rebel paikantuu kadonneeksi helmeksi. Se on suomalaisen kevyen musiikin historiassa ensimmäinen kokonainen albumi, jolla asiaan vihkiytynyt yhtye pyrkii soittamaan rockabillyä kutakuinkin niin kuin sitä soitettiin yli 20 vuotta aikaisemmin 1950-luvun Yhdysvaltain syvässä Etelässä; primitiivisesti ja ilman tukeutumista 1970-lukuisen listapopin soundeihin tai tuotannollisiin ideaaleihin.

    Dancing Shoes – The Complete Masters Collection 1977-1980 ei ole aikamatka sen paremmin amerikkalaisen kuin suomalaisen 1950-luvun kuvitteellisiin viattomuuden vuosiin. Sen sijaan nämä äänitteet tarjoavat – kuulijasta riippuen – nostalgisen tai eriskummallisen kurkistusreiän Kekkoslandian ajan kadonneeseen Suomeen, ja erääseen sen harvoista vaihtoehtoisista teinielämäntavoista.

  • Nelson Ricky - Sing, Ricky, Sing! (10``LP)

    29,00

    BEAR FAMILY Vinyl Club Exclusive – Limited collector’s edition.

    • 10inch LP (limited edition – colored vinyl)
    • 10 tracks. Unique 10inch in our 11000 collectors series
    • Reproduction of the extremely rare original album cover
    • Painstakingly remastered for highest fidelity and pressed on high quality vinyl!
    • Limited to 500 copies pressed on color vinyl 

    The original 10-inch LP was probably released in 1960 (only in Japan!) and contained eight tracks from Ricky’s successful early years, recorded for the Imperial label. 
    Girls were probably on the ballads at that time, but boys and rockers liked the fast ones, especially those with James Burton on the guitar. In retrospect, these recordings appear like instrumental blueprints for successors such as Shakin’ Stevens.

    In Japan, too, Ricky Nelson was very popular in those days. From a selection  of three, or four known 10“LP releases, we have chosen the one with the most beautiful cover design,  and we added two bonus tracks, also from the period 1958 – 1960. One Of These Mornings, a grim rocker, has rarely been re-released.

    The newly mastered recordings together with the carefully restored cover provide a much better price-performance ratio than the extremely expensive originals!

  • Allman Sheldon - Folk Songs For The 21st Century (Ltd, Plutonium green) (LP)

    22,00

    A time capsule of atomic-age country, radioactive rockabilly, and other-wordly melodies! Sheldon Allman (the singing voice of Mr. Ed!) brings you this long-out-of-print bunker full of plutonium-charged songs about space and destruction. Features “Crawl Out Through The Fallout” and “Radioactive Mama,” as heard in the Fallout video game series! Modern Harmonic proudly resurrects this wonderfully mystifying LP!

    A true creative treasure, the Chicago born and Canada raised Sheldon Allman was a graduate of the Los Angeles Conservatory of Music. Known well as an actor, Sheldon also composed and sung the theme song for 60’s cartoon cult classic George Of The Jungle. Additionally, as the singing voice of Mr. Ed, he released a 45 of “Pretty Little Filly” and “The Empty Feedbag Blues.” Most rare and coveted of his musical treasures was Folk Songs For The 21st Century, a concept album with a twisted futuristic outer space take on the atom craze. As an actor, Allman has over 50 credits to his name including films Hud!, In Cold Blood, and various roles on anything from Little House On The Prairie to the Twilight Zone. Modern Harmonic has taken this lost treasure and celebrates its eclectic rockabilly-ish uniqueness on plutonium green vinyl!!!

    10inch LP – Jerry Lee Lewis And His Pumping Piano

    What would have happened, if piano-ace Roy Hall hadn’t protected young biblestudent Jerry? Parts of our today’s music history might have not happened, no pumping or burnig instruments, lesser scandals. , , ,

    Although: It is clear, that Jerry borrowed parts of his apearance and show from 40’s keymen like Maurice Rocco or Harry ’the Hipster’ Gibson. After a short while at SUN-Records in Memphis, he recorded Halls’ ”Whole Lotta Shakin’ Going On”. His stageshow was the most concerning wildness, as in his shows, his personal life was quite similar and even today, there are still rumors allaround about it. ,

    The recordings on this platter were first issued during his early years at SUN. Everybody knows the legendary London-Records EPs from Great Britain, but still a few know the South African 10″ with these tracks. It would have been only the black keys of the Pumping Piano, if not ’Pumping Piano Rock’ would have been included as a bonus track. ,

    Simply play the disc and let it go … but loud! 

    Uniquely Jerry Lee

    A living, breathing ”Ball of Fire” never lives a minute of his young busy life without music. His profession, his pastime and his hobby all are music. You’ve just got to hear Jerry Lee Lewis to know what he’s like! He defies comparison to any other singer-pianist in the history of show business, because his way of getting in to the heart of a song and interpreting it from the inside out is uniquely Jerry Lee.

    This twenty-one-year-old from Memphis, Tennessee, is absolutely spontaneous in his showmanship. When he sings, it’s with abandon and enthusiasm. The way he gives himself to a song makes the outcome so personal it’s almost embarrassing. Whether he is performing for the microphone alone, or thousands of people, Jerry Lee puts on a fantastic per-formance!  ,

    He likes to play and sing almost anything—from rock and roll to spirituals, and in each type of song his magnetism is Inescapable. This electrifying element that pulls and holds audiences was given witness to by a fan, who wrote, ”I play your record over and over again until the record player gets too hot. ,

    Then I take it over to a neighbour’s house, and we play it some more.
