  • Presley Elvis - Love My Teddy Bear Tender (Käytetty CD)


    Recorded live at the International Hotel, Las Vegas, NV, September 3rd, 1971, Dinner show While some of Elvis import labels are just re-releasing previously issued and repackaged stuff, the always reliable E. P. Collector label is always looking for something new to release. We are always reaching out to people in order to find new material, and if it’s interesting, we will purchase it, even if the sound is not studio perfect. In recent months we were in touch with a couple of fans who recorded a number of interesting concerts, which now enables us to release two more surprises.

    The first new release is titled ”LOVE MY TEDDY BEAR TENDER” (EPC 2019-22) and it brings us the Las Vegas, September 3rd, 1971 Dinner show. You’ll have to forgive us for the somewhat clumsy title, but maybe you’ll understand when we tell you that it contains a sensational concert rarity! During this concert, he sings ”Love Me Tender” to the tune of ”Teddy Bear”!! He only did this once, during this concert, and now for the first time you can hear this amazing discovery!!! Who would think that we would still be getting surprises like this in 2019?! Concert recordings from ’71 are hard to come by these days, especially unreleased ones. During this season, Elvis was on fire, and his setlist was varied and strong. Near the end of the engagement, his shows were a bit looser, and this one is a real delight.

    This concert recording is a completely new show, even for the hardcore fans. The audio was mastered from an original audience recorded cassette tape. This CD is packaged in a nicely designed digipack with a press review and a collection of images taken in Las Vegas, NV, in August/September 1971.

  • Presley Elvis - Firing On All Cylinders 2CD (Käytetty CD)


    Between 2007 and 2017, Straight Arrow released no less than 10 concerts from Elvis’ 1972 Summer Festival, on 8 individual releases – More than any other label. In recent times we’ve also released a lot of stuff from the final years, but last year we made the commitment to focus on the 1969 – 1972 period, arguably his best concert years.

    Recently we were able to obtain two excellent vintage tapes from Elvis’ 1972 Summer Season, and it is with some pride that we now present these.
    This release is titled ”FIRING ON ALL CYLINDERS” (SA/SP 2019-60-02)… and Elvis truly did during this engagement. The first show is from August 7th, 1972 and this is the show where he performed ”Steamroller Blues” for the first time. The second show is Closing Night from September 4th, and it can easily be called the best show of the entire season. It’s a nice surprise that we are able to include some of the warm-up acts, including Jackie Kahanes’s set, as well as the Sweet Inspiration set. These ladies were smoking H – O – T, and it’s easy to hear why they were considered to me amongst the best female soul groups in the business. As you probably know, they used to work together with Aretha, and The Sweet Inspirations’ performance of her hits is one of the highlights on this disc.  
    We believe that the inclusion of the opening acts will give you a unique perspective of what it was like to experience one of Elvis’ Las Vegas concerts during this period in time.
    The August 7th, 1972 Midnight Show is a previously unreleased concert, taken from a newly obtained original audience recorded tape in surprisingly good quality. This specific tape has not been available previously. There is another recording of this show in circulation on CDR, but the sound quality of that one is poor.
    The September 4th, 1972 Closing show was released by some no-name label back in 2005, from an incomplete source and in very hissy sound (”Walk That Lonesome Road” CD – with the missing song being ”A Big Hunk O’Love”). We have found an alternate source, an original tape which includes the main part of the pre-program by The Sweet Inspirations as well as comedian Jackie Kahane. For the first time we present this great closing show in its complete form, and in the best possible sound quality! 

    This release is presented in a de-luxe 8-panel digipak, with a collection of photos taken in Las Vegas, NV, on August 8th, 1972 (Dinner), September 3rd, 1972 (3am) and September 4th, 1972 Closing shows.

  • Presley Elvis - Friday Night Lights 2CD (Käytetty CD)


    Our new release is titled ”FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS” (SA/SP 2019-59-02). ”STRAIGHT ARROW” label is continuing to release early 70s concerts and this new release is a direct follow-up to our July release called ”KENTUCKY RAIN” (SA/SP 2019-57-02).

    The Las Vegas, February 20th, 1970 Dinner show was previously released by the ”SR” label in 2015 from an inferior, degraded copying and basically unlistenable source. The show was incomplete with cuts and running way too slow.

    Now you have a chance to listen to this fantastic concert in the best possible quality, for the first time.
    The Las Vegas, February 20th, 1970 Midnight show is previously unreleased and it was never available in good quality and in complete form – until now!   It is one of greatest Elvis shows ever with “Polk Salad Annie” and “Suspicious Minds” being reprised!!

    We decided to add 5 bonus tracks, recorded during the February 21st, 1970 Dinner show. These tracks were never available in decent sound quality either. This recording includes the one-liner of the Pat Boone hit ”When the Swallows Come Back to Capistrano.” Unfortunately, no more tracks from this concert were taped.
    All material (incl. the bonus tracks) presented on this release was recorded by same person. This release is presented in a de-luxe 8-panel digipak, with a collection of photos taken in Las Vegas, NV, February 1970 as well as a press review.

  • Presley Elvis - Like A Greek God 2CD (Käytetty CD)


     Our second release is titled ”LIKE A GREEK GOD” (SA/SP 2019-58-02).
    The September 4th, 1970 Midnight show is a previously unreleased concert, taken from an original audience recorded tape. In 2005, the ”Memory Records” label used 6 tracks from this tape as a bonus for ”The Midnight Hour” CD. Unfortunately, the August 4th, 1970 Midnight show recording is incomplete, missing the last 3 songs. We have decided to add the same songs as taken from the September 5th, 1970 Midnight show to make the show ”complete” for listeners’ comfort.

    The September 7th, 1970 Closing night was released by the ”SR” label in 2008 in very poor, muffled sound, taken from a degraded x-generation copy (the ”September Nights” CD). Once again we have used an original master tape and restored it to crisp, clear perfection. Elvis’ crazy Closing night performance never sounded better – until NOW!

    Both concerts presented on this release were recorded by same person. This release is presented in a de-luxe 8-panel digipak, with a collection of photos taken in Las Vegas, NV, August 1970 and a press review.

    Marko Tapion hurmioitunut rock and roll -vuodatus sotki systeemini.
    Kuinka kukaan voi kirjoittaa rockabillystä ja rhythm & bluesista näin
    sekopäisiä sanaryöppyjä? Ensishokin jälkeen ymmärsin, että kiihkon
    vallassa runoileva nuorimies oli oikeilla jäljillä.” – Pekka Laine
    (The Fanatic IV, Hip Shooters, YLE)

    Make Tapion tekstit olivat kuin Gene Vincentin ensimmäiset
    levytykset: villejä ja vaarallisia, ja varsinkin Suomen oloissa rajoja
    rikkkovia. Maken sanan säilä viilsi hurmokselllisesti kuin Cliff
    Gallupin kitarasoolo.” – Masu Ijas (Pink Thunderbird)

    Marko ”Make” Tapio (1967 – 1991) oli oululainen rock and roll -friikki ja tuottelias kirjoittaja. Maken tekstejä julkaistiin satoja sivuja
    sellaisissa ”alan” pienlehdissä kuin Pink Thunderbird, Too Much Noise ja Blues News.

    Maken muistolle omistettu Rockin’ Bones -kirja kokoaa yhteen näistä jutuista parhaat ja kaivatuimmat – sekä yli 70 sivua ennenjulkaisematonta materiaalia! Kirjassa Maken verbaalisesta ilotulituksesta pääsevät osalliseksi muun muassa Link Wray, Tall Boys, The Cramps, Larry Williams, Don & Dewey, Legendary Stardust Cowboy, Thurston Harris, Larry Donn ja monet muut rock’n’rollin, rockabillyn ja r&b:n unohdetut kulttisankarit.

    Four years after their last release the DELTAS are back with a brand new 5-track 10inch (yes, 10 Inch) which they recorded at the legendary SUN Studios in Memphis, TN.
    Well talking about the Deltas is nonsens…a legendary band no more..no less. Started so many moons ago and wrote moder rockin’ history in many ways.
    The band saw many line ups over the decades, featuring Boz Boorer, John Buck, Ricochet Ray Heath, Andy Neal and many more. In 2018 the band wanted to get back to their roots stripped back to what excited the trio in first instance back in 1980 when they created something new!
    .. and so..here it is.. pure DELTAS as it’s best.. pure rockin’ .. so get infected with the Boogie Disease and join the Boogie Train.
    The band does and so you can see them live in 2019 i.e. at the already sold Out Neo-Rockabilly Alldayer, at the Rockabilly Rave and many other Festivals and clubshows…

  • Deadbeatz - Hangover No. 7 (CD)


    This is a short story about a long beard. A small story about a big incident that formed the style of this band. A tale about two guys with a bass, harmonica, drums, and a singer with the above-mentioned long beard. Two guys on a mission to prove to the world how powerful the blues can be. Teaching their audience ”no guitar player needed”. Many years ago, they once had a guitar player. One night, they were left with no money left to bail him out in that small town. With a number of empty whiskey bottles left in a destroyed hotel room, there was no going back. They were left to their own unique sound. Recording sessions followed that incident on this album.
    Small band with a big sound. No guitar player needed. Let them BLOW YOU AWAY!

    DeadBeatz are:
    David Karlinger blues harp & drums
    Bernie Miller vocal & double bass

  • Campbell Glen - Old Home Town / Letter To Home / It’s Just A Matter Of Time 2CD (CD)


    The three albums that Glen Campbell made for the Atlantic American label between 1982 and 1985 are on this 2CD set together with a rarity – the bonus track ‘They Still Dance To Waltzes In England’. This track was specially recorded for British release to coincide with his appearance at the 1984 International Festival of Country Music held in Wembley.

    Although he might have been originally known as a Country artist, it would be an injustice to pigeon-hole him as his music defied categorisation and attracted all manner of audiences. As he once remarked, “There are only two kinds of music – good and bad”.

    Glen Travis Campbell had displayed musical ability from his earliest days. The seventh son of twelve children, he was born into a poor farming family on April, 22nd 1936, in Billstown near Delight, Arkansas. Like many other children he was picking cotton virtually as soon as he could walk.

    Music was the family comfort for all the hard times and he started playing guitar when he was four years old learning from his Uncle Bob on a five dollar guitar that he’d given him. Within two years he was performing on local radio!

    Glen’s guitar skills quickly took him to top echelon level and he became associated with the much-lauded Wrecking Crew (which also included Leon Russell, Barney Kessel and James Burton in its ranks).

    He played guitar on recordings by artists such as Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, Bobby Darin, The Beach Boys (he briefly replaced Brian Wilson on Bass and high vocals), the Monkees, The Mamas and The Papas and Elvis Presley.

    Glen Campbell died on August 8th, 2017 after a long battle with Alzheimer’s and was laid to rest the next day in the Campbell Family Cemetery in Billstown, Arkansas.

    First time on CD for this compilation.

  • Various - She Came From Liverpool! Merseyside Girl Pop 1962-1968 (CD)


    Over the last few years, Ace has built up a series of prime British female pop releases, with individual collections drawn from four of the country’s leading record companies of the 1960s. With this compilation, rather than spotlight a particular company, the focus is on a location: the music hotbed of Merseyside. While male beat groups ruled the Merseyside roost in the ’60s, the area was also home to it’s fair share of female talent. To illustrate the point, here are 25 hand-picked girl-pop artefacts from thereabouts. Liverpool’s pop queen Cilla Black is featured with her two most Merseybeat-oriented tracks, including a terrific version of ’A Shot Of Rhythm And Blues’, the first song she ever recorded at Abbey Road. Guitar-toting cover girls the Liverbirds, who released no records in the UK but were stars in Germany – where their repertoire of Bo Diddley and Chuck Berry numbers made them favorites at the Star-Club – also appear twice. The Breakaways, the Vernons Girls and Beryl Marsden – three other acts intrinsically associated with Liverpool – are also featured. Along with a selection of proven fan favorites, the collection contains many lesser-known gems, among them new-to-CD tracks by the Three Bells, Nola York, Tiffany, Lyn Cornell, Cindy Cole and, not least, Samantha Jones, whose hitherto-unreleased-in-any-format ’I Don’t Want To Lose Him’ was recorded with visiting American producer Teddy Randazzo. Read all about these and the other featured artists in the accompanying picture-packed 28-page booklet, which contains a 7,000-word note by compiler Mick Patrick and genre expert Ian Chapman.

  • James Elmore - Sky is Crying: the Ultimate Collection (3CD) (CD)


    Elmore’s last great recordings occurred in the 1960s when he was signed by New York producer/label-owner Bobby Robinson (Fire, Fury & Enjoy Records). Unlike many of his contemporaries, James seemingly got better as the years progressed.

    These recordings have surfaced on so many different compilations – all with varying levels of sound quality. Fortunately, to make things easier we have this three-disc 58-song box set rounding up at least one extant take of everything Elmore recorded with Robinson at the helm. Along with standards, ”Dust My Broom, ” ”The Sky Is Crying” the classic ”One Way Out, ” the majority of this box set breaks new ground and stands as some of Elmore’s most emotion-laden work. Included our Elmore’s last sessions before his death and several tracks he cut as a session guitarist for Bobby Robinson. On May 24, 1963, James suffered a heart attack, which took his life at the age of 45. The musicians he inspired include The Allman Brothers, Jimi Hendrix, Fleetwood Mac, and Brian Jones of the Rolling Stones are just a few. Of the many musicians that he influenced in the course of their careers.

    In 1980 he was elected into the Blues Foundation Hall of Fame, and in 1994 Elmore was inducted into the Rock ’n’ Roll Hall of Fame.

    Rollling Stone magazine has placed him in the list of top 30 guitarists of all time!

    Some Questions you may have about the new Fats Domino box set.
    Q:  I have the old Fats Domino Box on Bear Family which was released 25 years ago. Why should I buy this box?
    A: It’s been upgraded and increased in size (12 CDs – 312 tracks versus 8 in the old box; 240-page book versus 60 in the 1993 box). Much new material has been added including unreleased alt takes, undubbed and unedited masters, and instrumental backing tracks. 

    Also for the first time anywhere we present some of Fats’s biggest hits as they were originally recorded, not sped-up for release. The completely revised book contains a wealth of previously unpublished images, track-by-track musical commentary by the producers, as well as updated and extended notes by Fats biographer Rick Coleman. The box also includes an acclaimed video documentary on Fats’s life and music.

    Q: Isn’t this new box very expensive?
    A: Not for what it is.  Remember, this project took years to complete and thousands of hours. Sure, there is a lot of cheap Fats Domino product out there – and it looks and sounds it. The book production here, the pictures, the remastering, the background story – these are available nowhere else. 

    And we licensed primary sources to master from. None of these were cheap. Putting it simply: the music sounds much better on this box set than it ever has before due to the brilliant remastering from the original tapes. Second, the book that we include is much better – in terms of both the writing and the images – than anything anyone has done before, Bear Family included. The new box set is actually a bargain – especially if you take advantage of the introductory discounted price.

    Q: You mentioned songs in different speeds? Please explain that to me.
    A: Many of Fats’s biggest hits were artificially sped up for release to make him sound more “youthful”. This box includes both the familiar sped up versions and never-before-heard authentic versions.
    Q: How many of the Fats songs were sped up?
    A: Twenty-seven songs were originally released sped up as singles. But once Imperial had success with the new sped-up version of Fats, they began to speed-up old recordings when they appeared as “filler” on LPs. It took a lot of sleuth-work and engineering to get things right.
    Q: Who did the speed up on Fats, his producers or the record company?
    A: Imperial Records authorized it. But the speed-ups were proposed and carried out by the sound engineer where the records were mastered, a man named Abraham “Bunny” Robyn.
    Q: Why were the songs sped up in the first place?
    A: “Bunny” Robyn thought some of Fats’s records sounded “logey” – not lively enough — and convinced Lew Chudd at Imperial to let him try doing it. The first record he sped up was Ain’t It a Shame, a huge success.
    Q: Do I get all the Fats Domino songs I love?
    A: If they were recorded for Imperial and ABC-Paramount, yes you do.
    Q: As Fats experts know, reissues of “Blueberry Hill” reliably use the patched-together repaired master because of a ruined stretch of tape. What is in this box?
    A: We mastered from a pristine copy of the US-issued Imperial 78 rpm release – the only version that didn’t require repair. Blueberry Hill is one of the tracks that got sped up so we also include a repaired version slowed down to its authentic performance speed. Our book discusses this odd episode in Fats’s recording career.
    Q: Are all the CDs remastered or is it just the ones that were sped up?
    A: Every track in this box has been carefully remastered. You will be delighted and in many cases surprised at how good they sound.
    Q: I see there are recordings by other musicians. Why?
    A: Early in his career, Fats sometimes worked as a session pianist for other artists like Joe Turner, Lloyd Price and Smiley Lewis. We’ve included some examples of those recordings. In addition, Fats was an incredibly influential performer whose style was often imitated. We include some examples of that as well.
    Q: Does the Discography in the new box include complete session information?
    A: It contains everything that is known. The Imperial sessions are a lot better documented. Unfortunately, the ABC sessions contain some personnel gaps, but rest assured – you are getting everything that is known.  
    Q: What about the video? Why is it part of the box?
    A: We were fortunate enough to secure the rights to the widely acclaimed PBS documentary about Fats and his place in rock & roll history. It includes interviews with Dave Bartholomew and legendary New Orleans recording engineer Cosimo Matassa.
    Q: I’ve heard there is a longer “director’s cut” of the documentary.  Do I get that too?
    A: Yes, you do. Both are on the DVD. 
    Q: Who are the producers, Hank Davis and Scott Parker?
    A: They are musicians and rock & roll historians who have loved Fats’s music for over 60 years. They have been involved in the production of more than 50 projects for Bear Family Records.

    We could have taken the easy way out. The original 1993 box set was out of stock. We could simply have printed more copies and filled orders.
    Of course, we didn’t. This is Bear Family Records and we don’t take shortcuts. We’ve invested more than 1000 hours in re-writing, recompiling and re-mastering this box. The brilliant engineering by Christian Zwarg will leave you shaking your head in admiration. You won’t quite recognize some of your favorite Fats Domino tracks because they’ve never sounded this good.
    We’ve found a lot of new material – some things that were thought to be lost and other things that nobody knew existed. We have alternate takes that have never before been issued.  We’ve got new unedited and non-overdubbed versions of some familiar Fats songs and newly discovered overdubs of familiar songs. We’ve got the intact recording of Blueberry Hill without the tape glitch. We’ve got previously unreleased backing tracks. We’ve also included some examples of Fats working as a session pianist for other artists (including Joe Turner, Lloyd Price and Smiley Lewis) early in his career. And to show how influential Fats’s style was, we’ve included some examples of other performers imitating Fats during his Golden Era. 
    But the biggest news concerns the Speed-up. Everybody knows that some of Fats’s Imperial records were speeded up for release, making them both faster and pitched in higher keys. But how many of them? And which ones? And just how much were they speeded up? And, in case you wondered, how was it done back in 1955 and by whom? We didn’t have as good a handle on those questions when the original box set was compiled back in 1993, and we sure didn’t know the answers. But we do now. And we admit, back 25 years ago we screwed up some of the speeds on our original box. And when other companies tried to fix things with their Fats Domino reissues, they made their own mistakes and just added to the mess.
    But now the mess is over. A lot of those 1000+ hours went into getting speeds exactly right so we can truly present Fats’s music as it was originally released. But what is completely new here is that we also present, for the first time anywhere, examples of Fats’s Greatest Hits as they were originally performed in the studio, at their original speeds and in their real keys. No speed-up. You can be a fly on the wall and hear songs like Ain’t It A Shame and I’m Walking as they actually sounded in Cosimo’s New Orleans studio. That addition alone makes this Box a landmark event.
    A lot has also gone into updating and revising the accompanying, lavishly illustrated book by Fats biographer Rick Coleman, and by music historians Hank Davis and Scott Parker. That includes an updated Fats Domino Imperial Records Discography. And what’s more, we extended the Box to include two CDs with all of Fats post-Imperial recordings for the ABC Paramount label. Twelve CDs in all – an upgrade of 50% from the original box. 
    Even if you bought the first Bear Family box 25 years ago, Fats Domino: I’ve Been Around is a must for any serious Fats Domino collection. It’s not going to get any better than this.
