Thursday, 19 August The Shirelles. Labels: The Shirelles. Wednesday, 18 August Elaine Stritch … Requested. Labels: Elaine Stritch. I originally posted 40 Quo albums. Original post in ?? Labels: Status Quo updated This is the Shangri-Las debut album, originally released in on the Red Bird label.
It had never been released on CD until recently. There are a number of album tracks featured here which had never been released on CD previously, despite the many official compilations released up until this point. Fully remastered, it now contains 7 bonus tracks:. This is the second Shangri-Las album, originally released in on the Red Bird label. This is the third and final Shangri-Las album, a compilation originally released in on the Mercury label.
It has never been released on CD. This is my own compilation using all the original mono mixes from the highest quality digital sources of the 12 track album. The label's first release was "Chapel of Love" by the Dixie Cups, which quickly reached number one on the Billboard Hota feat matched later that year by the Shangri-Las' "Leader of the Pack".
Eleven of the first 30 singles released by Red Bird reached the Top Forty. All tracks are tagged correctly and in the correct running order of this compilation I have made. I actually own the original 7" single which I bought at Penny Lane in at a special price of only 35p! I always remember the owner who I knew well getting upset with me and saying "You shouldn't be. Thing is I haven't played it in over 40 years, and always assumed the album version was the same recording.
I have to agree with him, that the re-recorded 7" single version is far superior to the album version upon hearing it again for the first time in 41 years.
The single version of the 'Echo Beach' follow up single. This re-recording is much better than the hum drum album version, and has never been released on CD. Nanci Griffiths R. Labels: Nanci Griffith R. Nina Simone. Labels: Nina Simone. Wednesday, 11 August Bernadette Peters.

InDevo were asked by Neil Young to participate in the making of his film 'Human Highway' playing "nuclear garbagemen", and the band members were asked to write their own parts, with Mark Mothersbaugh scoring and recording much of the soundtrack.
This third post of basement demos from the band includes early versions of some of those singles, alongside a handful of previously Go On Home Baby - Them (3) - The Collection Featuring Van Morrison (CD) tracks from the inimitable Devo. This lineup of Devo, which included the Mothersbaugh brothers, Gerald Casale and Bob Lewis, lasted until late when Jim Mothersbaugh left the band, and while Bob Lewis would sometimes play guitar during this period, he mainly stayed in a managerial role.
In concert, Devo would often perform in the guise of theatrical characters, such as Booji Boy and the Chinaman, and not surprisingly live concerts from this period were often confrontational, and would remain so until This can be seen on a recording of an early Devo performance fromcaptured on 'DEVO Live: The Mongoloid Years', which ends with the promoters unplugging the band's equipment. Following Jim Mothersbaugh's departure, Bob Mothersbaugh found a new drummer, Alan Myers, who played on a conventional, acoustic drum kit, and Casale re-recruited his brother Bob, with this lineup of Devo remaining the same for nearly ten years.
For the second of the three posts from the band, here are the 4-track basement recordings fromonce again housed in contemporary cover art.
Saturday, October 2, Feedback? Labels: Feedback. Friday, October 1, Adrian Belew Robert Steven Adrian Belew was born on 23 December in Covington, Kentucky, and in his early teens he played drums with the Ludlow High School marching band, Go On Home Baby - Them (3) - The Collection Featuring Van Morrison (CD) later with the high-school covers band Go On Home Baby - Them (3) - The Collection Featuring Van Morrison (CD) Denems.
Inspired by Jimi Hendrix, he took up guitar when he was bedridden for several months with mononucleosis, and at age 17 he was further inspired by a club performance of blues-rock musician Lonnie Mack, who became a lifelong personal friend.
He wasn't inclined to study music formally, but taught himself by listening to records, and rapidly became a high-school guitar hero. While maturing as a player and mastering various playing styles, he became increasingly preoccupied with ways to avoid sounding like everybody else, and eventually found his own sound and style by learning how to make his guitar mimic sound effects such as car horns, animal noises, or industrial sounds and then applying those sounds to relatively standard songs.
In the mid's, having formally changed his first name to his preferred choice of Adrian, Belew moved to Nashville, Tennessee, to pursue a full-time career as a professional musician, and by he was playing with the regionally-popular cover band Sweetheart.
While playing at a Sweetheart gig at Fanny's Bar in Nashville, he was discovered by Frank Zappa, who had been tipped off regarding the band's talents by his chauffeur.
Zappa approached Belew and discussed auditioning him for an upcoming tour, although Belew did not receive an official invitation to audition for nearly a year. During this time Sweetheart split up, and so once the formal invitation came, he flew out to Los Angeles and found himself auditioning alongside more formally trained musicians, Go On Home Baby - Them (3) - The Collection Featuring Van Morrison (CD) following a more intimate second audition Zappa was impressed enough to hire Belew on a handshake deal for a year.
He toured with the Zappa band and appeared on Zappa's album 'Sheik Yerbouti', most notably performing a Bob Dylan impersonation on the song 'Flakes', and he also appeared in Zappa's concert film 'Baby Snakes'.
Although he was mostly credited as rhythm guitarist, he also played lead, melody, or noise lines, as well as singing lead on two songs. Belew accepted the offer, and he played on Bowie's Isolar II Tour inas well as contributing to his next studio album, 'Lodger'. In Belew formed a new band, GaGa, for which he served as the singer, guitarist, drummer, and primary songwriter, and on one of his frequent visits to New York City, he became friends with the up-and-coming band Talking Heads, who invited him to join them onstage for performances of their signature song 'Psycho Killer', where he impressed them with his wild and unorthodox guitar soloing.
Following his working with Brian Eno on Bowie's 'Lodger' album, he was invited to add guitar solos to several tracks on Eno's next production job, Talking Heads' 'Remain In Light' album, and his involvement with them extended to playing on the band's spin-off projects, such as Tom Tom Club, and David Byrne's and Jerry Harrison's solo albums.
Unfortunately, Belew's experience with Tom Tom Club was less harmonious than his previous work with Talking Heads, and their recording engineer, Steven Stanley, was vocal about his dislike of distorted guitar, and erased the majority of Belew's solos during the mixing sessions. By now Belew's rising profile had gained him a solo record contract with Island Records, and in the down time at the Tom Tom Club sessions, members of GaGa joined him at Compass Point and backed him on a set of parallel recordings which would result in Belew's first solo album, 's 'Lone Rhino'.
In Belew was invited to join Robert Fripp's new band Discipline, with Bill Bruford and Tony Levin, and during initial touring the members discussed the possibility of renaming themselves King Crimson. This had not been the original intention for the band, but all members generally agreed that this would be both appropriate and useful, and so his time with King Crimson began in and he stayed with them untilone of the longest tenures in the band by anyone other than founder Robert Fripp.
As part of the agreement to his joining, he insisted that he would be allowed time to continue and develop his new solo career, to which Fripp agreed. The renamed band released the well-received 'Discipline' album infollowed by the equally fine 'Beat' inand 'Three Of A Perfect Pair' in Following King Crimson's breakup and hiatus inBelew formed the pop band The Bears with fellow guitarist and singer Rob Fetters, drummer Chris Arduser, and bass guitarist Bob Nyswonger, releasing two albums on I. After three years of constant recording, promotion, and touring, the band broke up in following the collapse of PMRC, although Belew has continued to tour and record, either solo or with new bands that he had formed.
