Aintree Institute Set 1961 LP

This is not a Beatles Live LP. It is an attempt to conjure up the atmosphere of a Beatles show from 1961 by taking the first documented Beatles set list and presenting the songs they sang in the order in which they were performed. In order to enhance the fantasy listening experience, live performances of the music have been used where available.

Drummer John Cochrane of Wump & His Werbles transcribed this list of songs the Beatles played when the two groups performed together at the Aintree Institute sometime in January/February 1961. The date can’t be pinned down to anything more specific than somewhere between the release date of the most recent record the Beatles played that night (The Shirelles Boys issued in January 1961) and the group’s departure for a season at the Top Ten Club in Hamburg at the end of March 1961.

But then again, it may have been at the Lathom Hall in Seaforth...

Soho Scene ‘63 LP
Jazz Goes Mod

Soho, October 1963. It’s not been a great year for British jazz record releases or jazz sales in general. You only have to look through your copy of ‘Jazz News and Review’ to see the venues listed moving towards R&B.  The Ealing Jazz Club, the Railway Hotel in Wealdstone, the White Hart on the Uxbridge Road are all now hosting R&B nights. They are dancing to American rhythm and blues records at the Disc and at the recently opened Scene Club. Even the National Jazz Festival in Richmond has been infiltrated.
You can still hear jazz though at The Marquee, at Klooks Kleek, at Ronnie’s and at the 100 Club which caters for trad and modern tastes. But the best place to be sweaty and hip is The Flamingo in Wardour Street. Early Saturday evenings at The Mingo mean Modern Jazz both live and on vinyl.
Collected here are several slabs of British quality along with influential American sounds from labels such as Impulse, Atlantic and World Pacific. This album captures the period just as rhythm and blues is emerging as the dominant club sound, forcing clubs like the Flamingo to change their music policy in order to survive.

Side One
1. A Kettle Of Fish Brother Jack McDuff
2. Days Of Wine & Roses The Quartette Trés Bien
3. Blues for Mister Fink Gene Ludwig Organ Trio
4. What Are You Trying To Do To Me Bobby Powell

SOLD OUT
The Animals
We Gotta Get Out Of This Place -
The Animals Radio & TV Sessions 1965 LP

The Alan Price Rhythm & Blues Combo, later the Animals, were the premier attraction on the Newcastle-on Tyne live circuit in 1962. They had a real edge combining a tough vocal sound, charismatic stage presence and a rich organ sound. They moved to London two years later, becoming popular on the mod scene and scoring record deals with EMI in the UK and MGM in America. They were the only British Invasion group whose every single released in the UK and in the US was a hit record at the time.

This album comprises 14 recordings never previously released, taken from radio and TV broadcasts on Ready Steady Go, Jazz Club, Shindig and Hullabaloo from the peak year of the Animals’ success of 1965.

SOUL IN - Mods Out On The Floor LP

The concentration is there, directed straight downwards, looking at your feet. Eyes encased in dark shades so as not to give the game away. A look of nonchalance on your face that does not betray the hours spent building up to this moment. Ankle twists, fast shuffling, leaning forward and a slight shake of the hips as the music commands you to move.

All over Britain, kids are sat in front of their family televisions watching your every move. Because ‘Ready, Steady Go!’ wasn’t just about the pop stars and the visiting American artists presenting their latest songs. It was a snapshot of what was going on now…what clothes are being worn…new hairstyles…and just as important, new dances.

This album takes you back to those raw and early days when you could Bump, Watusi or Boogie all night long.

SOHO SCENE '64 LP
Jazz Goes Mod

In 1964, live jazz was under threat from the burgeoning demand for rhythm and blues. Club nights were closing and fewer jazz records were being issued. However, real aficionados were congregating in Soho, where clubs like the Flamingo were still playing innovative jazz tunes from America as well as showcasing Britain's top jazz combos. On hot, sweaty nights in dimly lit basement clubs, music really mattered with the cool cat West End audience. Pour yourself a drink, put this record on LOUD and get into the 1960s jazz groove.

The Kinks In Koncert LP SOLD OUT

Outside of the 1967 Kinks' Live At Kelvin Hall LP there hasn't ever been a representative recording of the Kinks earliest brush with fame and their nascent early live rhythm & blues repertoire from 1964-65. That is, until this LP. It wasn't until well into the video years that such things appeared from the vaults of European television, long locked away after their initial airings in 1965. What we have collected here are the audio tracks of shows spaced throughout 1965, when the group was right at the peak of their onstage power - a solid representation of the Kinks at the peak of their popularity in the mid-60s, warts and all. It all adds up to a wonderful reminder of what initially helped make them uproariously famous.

Georgie Fame LP
R&B at the Ricky Tick '65

Back in 1965, the centre of the Mod Universe was London’s West End. Clubs like The Flamingo were pulling in hip young kids to see the new R&B acts. The biggest home-grown act was Georgie Fame & The Blue Flames, who incorporated all that the new breed wanted to hear and dance the night away to: R&B, Soul, Jazz and Ska.
Out of town, clubs dropped ‘jiving’ and ‘Merseybeat’ nights in favour of the new sounds that were surging out of the city. In nearby Windsor, the only place to be if you were a mod was The Ricky Tick, and on May Day 1965, the Blue Flames were topping the bill. Fame was certainly a crowd puller. When he made his appearance at the club that night, he was fresh from having just finished touring with the first UK Tamla Motown revue. He had been added to the bill at the last minute to boost numbers on the tour that included The Supremes, Martha & The Vandellas, Stevie Wonder, Smokey Robinson & The Miracles. The promoters knew Fame could pull in the mods.
A sincere sounding Georgie said in Rave magazine, “since rhythm and blues came in it’s done a hell of a lot for honesty in music. Young people today are cool. They’re looking for the good things in life. If you start off looking for truthfulness and meaning and maturity you’re starting on the right track.”
Well said, Georgie. Get on the right track baby!

Harry South - The Songbook LP

The studio is dark; voices can be heard approaching its main doors. Soon, a flick of a switch brings light, which reveals a white walled room full of musical instruments of every shape and size, glistening under the rays thrust upon them, all fighting for space with a plethora of recording equipment already set up. The voices heard earlier, now file in through the doors.

Musicians. The room falls silent as a piano lid is lifted to reveal black and white keys that stare back at the man now carefully placing his long fingers upon them.

'Ok chaps' he says, 'shall we give the first number a run through?'

The arranger had arrived, the process had begun…

Harry South may not be a household name in the UK, but among its jazz world of the 50s to the late 60s, it was held in very high esteem. Even when jazz fell into a sharp decline in the UK mainstream in the late 1960s, you couldn't hold a man like Harry South back.

The Animals LP
Five Animals Don't Stop No Show

By Summer 1966, the Animals were ready to call it a day. John Steele had bailed out back in February and Nashville Teens drummer Barry Jenkins was drafted in as his replacement. The band had decided to break up in May, but they were contracted to do a lengthy American tour along with teen stars Herman's Hermits, so the reluctant five-piece dragged themselves over to the States to fulfil the commitment.
But it turned out to be a pretty eventful tour, culminating in a trip to San Francisco where Eric Burdon saw the light. There, R&B was out but Psychedelia was very definitely in. The group cut a couple of tracks in Los Angeles with Frank Zappa, one of which, The Other Side of This Life, came out as a US 45 in November after the break up. Over on the East Coast, they played a gig at New York’s Wollman Rink Central Park on August 3rd and later on that evening, Chas Chandler had a Damascene moment after seeing an obscure, unsigned guitarist by the name of Jimi Hendrix. Chandler’s days of playing bass were over. The group’s last gig was on September 5th at the Steel Pier Resort in Atlantic City and that was it for the Animals – at least, until Eric Burdon and The New Animals made their appearance.

The Hollies LP
Shake with the Hollies

We have compiled together on this LP the very best broadcast recordings the Hollies made that have never previously been issued. From 1966, I Can’t Let Go features an unusual six-string bass guitar solo by Eric Haydock, followed by a spirited rendition of one of Clarke, Nash and Hicks’s earliest compositions Set Me Free and an early version of Don’t Even Think About Changin’, a song that later appeared on the For Certain Because album.
Rockin Robin  and Just One Look are from the NME Pollwinners concert of 1964 at the Empire Pool, Wembley in London. The acts which appeared together in this incredible line up were The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Merseybeats, The Searchers, Gerry & the Pacemakers, Billy J. Kramer & the Dakotas, Brian Poole & the Tremeloes, Cliff Richard, The Shadows, The Dave Clark Five, The Swinging Blue Jeans, Kathy Kirby, Freddie & the Dreamers and The Hollies.
We apologise for the poor quality of the 1963 recordings that were taped by an enthusiastic fan who placed a microphone in front of the radio speaker! Shake is from a live concert recording and the two Chuck Berry songs Roll Over Beethoven and Reelin’ And Rockin’ have never been released before in any form by the Hollies. I think you’ll agree that these energetic, high-speed performances alone make this LP deserve its place in any self-respecting Hollies fan’s collection.

Soho '61 LP
Jazz Goes Mod

Soho 1961, Friday dinnertime.
Smells of warm, fresh bread are wafting over from Floris Hungarian bakery; of garlic, spicy meats and partridge pies from Belgian Butcher Benoit Bulcke. Eugenio is selling the best macaroni in town at King Bomba. And he says ‘London without Soho would be like a man without a heart.’ Over at the French in Dean Street. Gaston Berlemont is serving Pernod, Byrrh and Amer Picon. You might want to pick up a copy of ‘About Town’ magazine – I NEED that printed silk tie from John Michael. Soho is full of the kind of temptation Lucifer would offer for your soul ….Hell take me now!
While your dad’s generation settle for warm beer and pickled eggs at the local, your taste is for French and Italian styling. You are an Internationalist! Then of course there’s the American music. Transatlantic baby! The nearest you can get though, is Soho and its West End jazz clubs. You can dream of hearing Roland Kirk or Jack McDuff in New York, but for now Tubby Hayes at the Flamingo or Don Rendell at Klooks Kleek will suffice. The blinkers are off and there’s a whole new world to dig!

Soho '65 LP
Jazz Goes Mod

November 1965: If you survey how the Mod scene looks by ’65, it seems a million miles from how it all started back in ’57. Back then it was a few of us distancing ourselves from those dinosaur Teds with their bootlace ties and multi-coloured suits. What a gas! Today there are all these ‘Mods’ hanging around Carnaby Street in their bullseye T-shirts, chevrons, stripes and even medals on their chest. It’s a different world.  Being a bit older, our crowd stay away from that whole Disneyland element. We wouldn’t wear that tat for a firing squad.
It’s now deciding where to go. The Scene club is now full of kids with that beach fighting mentality. The Flamingo is still good but has pretty much given up on jazz. The Marquee could have The Settlers along with The Chris Barber Soul Band. Strange days indeed. The West End hasn’t totally surrendered to the R&B crowd.  On a Saturday night you can still slip in to the basement at the Phoenix in Cavendish Square and catch Don Rendell and Ian Carr blowin’ up a storm. Then on to Ronnie Scott’s in Gerrard Street around 11 to see the band warming up, and if you’re lucky it’s Harold McNair or Tubby. At fifteen shillings entry and beer at two shillings and sixpence, it ain’t cheap, but it’s still the best jazz club in the world.
We’re still buying the platters that matter of course. You hit the sunlight of central London with some real beauties tucked under your arm like a copy of ‘Boiler Maker Jim’ by Terrell Prude on the Tangerine label because the flip ‘Funky Soul’ knocked you out. A smile comes across your face. It’s only a couple of weeks until the Dizzy Gillespie Quintet and the Jimmy Smith Trio appear at Fairfield Hall in Croydon.
This is the life. Who says jazz is dead?

Mighty Instrumentals R&B Style Two-Parters LP

R&B Instrumentals have had a pretty raw deal from CD compilers. You either get the famous Side One on its own, or occasionally both sides squeezed together with a two-second gap between them, so DJs need two copies in order to play them consecutively.
Here for the first time are a bunch of fab instrumental records heard in all their unfettered glory, just as the musicians played them in the studio but never previously heard on record. The full five minutes – no gaps, no clicks – all the music. Instrumental two-parters, like it says on the tin. Enjoy responsibly.

Classic British modern jazz albums are rare beasts, owing to all sorts of factors, many of which are nothing whatsoever to do with those performing on them. This new release, capturing the era in which London produced its own take on the jazz trends of the day, is a valuable addition to that select catalogue. Not only does it showcase four of the UK's best bop-apprenticed jazz talents in top form, all of them alas long gone, it provides moods and grooves that remain strong enough to catch a new generation of listeners.

New Orleans Soul LP
1967

By the end of 1967, the music business in the Crescent City was in a bad way, and after Cosimo Matassa’s downfall, recording activity in the city fell off a cliff. As in 1966, over 400 Crescent City recorded soul songs were issued in 1967. This number dropped to less than 100 in 1968. This was truly the end of an era.

Like its predecessor album which covered 1966, this LP brings together the best soul tracks recorded in New Orleans in 1967. At this time southern soul was in the ascendant but as usual the musical background of the Crescent City – jazz, R & B, the Caribbean – ensured that music recorded there always had a rhythmic twist and arrangements all of their own. New Orleans – the joker in the soul pack for sure. No national hits here, just the sound of the streets. The heartbeat of the city.

1. You Better Know What You're Doing CARLIES ALLEN          (Broussard/Rudison, Trend 1005)
