NEW RELEASE INFORMATION - RELEASE DATE 07/12/2009 Joan Baez How Sweet the Sound

DVD with CD

(PASS003)

This DVD explores fifty years of folk legend and human rights activist Joan Baez, in Joan Baez: How Sweet The Sound, airing on BBC1’s ‘Imagine’ series on December 8 th, one day after release of this package. Features rare performance footage and candid interviews wit h David Crosby, Bob Dylan, exhusband David Harris, Reverend Jesse Jackson, Roger McGuinn, and more. Joan Baez made her debut appearance at the Newport Folk Festival in 1959. Fifty years later she returned to that same Rhode Island stage on August 2, marking her and the festival’s 50th anniversaries. In the first comprehensive documentary to chronicle the private life and public career of Joan Baez, the documaentary examines her history as a recording artist and performer as well as her remarkable journey as the conscience of a generation. This DVD/CD will feature the film with bonus content and an audio CD of music from the film. The audio CD contains rare live performances and studio recordings that span her career. Following Baez on her 2008/2009 world tour, the filmmakers captured Baez in performance as well as in intimate conversations wit h individuals whose lives parallel hers. From a stop in Sarajevo, Bosnia to revisit the scene of Joan’s courageous trip to that war-torn city in the middle of the 1993 siege, to Nashville, Tennessee, where she joined Steve Earle to talk about their collaboration on Joan’s 2008 Grammy-nominated album Day After Tomorrow, the film allows viewers an unprecedented level of access to Ms. Baez. Shot in high definition with a natural, filmic look, Joan is also joined on screen by, David Crosby, Bob Dylan, Roger McGuinn and Reverend Jesse Jackson, among others, to illuminate this extraordinary life. Rich historical archival footage – Baez’ controversial visit to North Vietnam, where she is seen praying wit h the residents of Hanoi during the heaviest bombing of the war; Martin Luther King Jr. outside a Californ ia prison where he visited Joan to offer his support after she was jailed for staging a protest; Joan at her first Newport Folk Festival in 1959 and Joan as a teenager performing at the historic Club 47 – is woven into the story so viewers can experience scenes from Joan’s life that have never been uncovered. The grit of the film is Baez’ power as a musician – from her tentative teenage years in the Cambridge, Mass coffee houses to her emergence onto the world stage and the 50-year career that followed – Joan Baez is a musical force of nature and this film captures her strength as a performer and the influence she has brought to bear on successive generations of artists.

Great live performances by the acknowledged master of the guitar - great sound too! First time officially available in the UK BOOTLEG USA is definitely not a bootleg. Put together by Martin Simpson himself from several concerts just before he left the States to re-settle back in England, it has been out of print for some time and has never been available officially in the UK. Mixing superb acoustic guitar solos with some fantastic songs from the likes of Richard Thompson and Bob Dylan, BOOTLEG USA is a great sounding live CD from one of the UK’s foremost musicians. This quote is from an unsolicited review on the internet and says it all: “This is one of my favourite albums: it can consistently move me to tears, for all the right reasons! Every time I listen to it I find something new and hear another song in a different way. Martin Simpson's understanding and mastery of music are such that although this is a technically faultless performance, technique in itself never intrudes between the musician and the listener: he is "at one" with his instrument, leading to a direct communication of emotion.” Tracks; Plains of Waterloo, James Connolly / One More Day, Boots of Spanish Leather / Roadkill / Strange Affair / Granmore Hare / Icarus / Highway 61, Highway 61 Revisited / Delia / Jasper Songbird, Spoonful / Fool Me Once

The Silkie are best remembered for their hit cover of the Beatles song ‘You've Got To Hide Your Love Away’, which made the U.S. top ten in 1965. The Silkie gave the song a somewhat more pop-folk treatment, complete with male-female harmonies, its prospects were boosted by a Lennon-McCartney production credit. The Beatle connection didn't end there, as they were also managed by Brian Epstein. Three of the Beatles were involved in the Silkie's cover version of ‘You've Got to Hide Your Love Away’. Paul McCartney contributed vocals and guitar, George Harrison added percussion via guitar taps and tambourine, and John Lennon did most of the producing, although McCartney is sometimes credited as co-producer with Lennon. This CD reissue of The Silkie’s album also includes their singles as bonus tracks. The accompanying booklet features extensive liner notes, photographs and full recording details. Tracks: You’ve Got To Hide Your Love Away / Times They Are A-Changin’ / Mr Tambourine Man / Close The Door Gently / Dylan’s Dream / Girl From The North Country / Blowin’ In The Wind / Blood Red River / Love Minus Zero/No Limit / It Ain’t Me Babe / Tomorrow Is A Long Time / City Winds / Bonus tracks Leave Me To Cry / Keys To My Soul / Born To Be With You / I’m So Sorry

Nigel Price Organ Trio - Live! was recorded at three venues during a UK tour in 2009. Nigel is supported by Pete Whittaker on organ and Matt Home on drums, the live album format captures perfectly the energetic spirit of this gritty three piece. Fellow distinctive jazz guitarist, Jim Mullen, describes the new album thus: Nigel’s trio has been together for five years and in organist Pete Whittaker and drummer Matt Home he has players who bring this hard swinging session to life. To my ears Nigel takes as his starting point the Wes Montgomery Trio with Mel Rhyne on organ - an underrated group which brought Wes to the attention of the jazz world. The set kicks off with Buddy Montgomery’s 'Bock to Bock', a minor key swinger which sets out their stall. Keeping it in the Montgomery family, next up is brother Wes’s classic 'Jingles', with a beautiful crisp solo from Nigel and some great Matt Home exchanges where he echoes Roy Haynes and Philly Joe. Organist Pete Whittaker shines in a fresh take on 'My Favourite Things', and Nigel’s solo comes on like a homage to Wes and Grant Green. On the moving 'Angel Eyes', Nigel gives a masterclass in chord melody ballad playing. Nigel’s funky Mozambique looks fondly back to the bluesy history of the Hammond. The album’s second Wes tune, the up tempo 'S.O.S', has Nigel at his most exciting, with great lines pouring out effortlessly, chorus after chorus. 'When Sunny Gets Blue' has another chord melody intro before Nigel takes off on a lyrical flight of fancy. Finally, Duke Ellington’s 'Cottontail' has Nigel in stunning form at a take-no-prisoners tempo, where Pete more than holds his own and Matt keeps the fires burning. Tracks; Bock to Bock / Jingles / My favourite Things / Angel Eyes / Mozambique / S.O.S / When Sunny Gets Blue / Cottontail Available: 07/12/ 2009

FOLK

His songs are much sought after and have been covered by several high profile singers. An old pair of hobnailed boots in a dark bedroom beside a dormant volcano in New Zealand, a meeting in the Negev desert with a Bedouin activist struggling to hold onto his family’s lands, remembering two painters in his home village of Rostrevor, a late night childhood story from the daughter of a famous coal miner in the North East of England, wrestling with the idea of formal and informal words for “you” in the German language, raising a voice against noise pollution, recalling the smell of freshly baked bread, Colum Sands is a songwriter who works from a broad palette and sings of the colours, the senses, the accents and the language of life. On his latest collection “Look where I’ve ended up now ” Sands finds inspiration across that same vas t landscape which has welcomed his songs and stories over the past thirty years - from Ireland to the rest of Europe, the Middle East, Australia, New Zealand and North America. In the company of fellow Sands Family members and some of Ireland’s finest musicians, the exotic flavours of Armenian Oud player Vasken Solakian and the outstanding English accordion play er Karen Tweed, the County Dow n songwriter comes up with lines like “Remote controllers all over the house, we have not the remotest control” or “rain coming in through the ceiling and the water bill’s gone through the roof!” to carry the tradition of the troubadour into the 21st century with the blend of humour, critical insight and optimism which has become his hallmark.

‘In concept and execution, "Crossroads" is a tantalizing and altogether terrific album from Irish traditional music's own "power trio.” These three mean business and achieve art. Earle Hitchner, IRISH EC HO, USA

FOLK

From the first performance together eight years ago there was an immediate spark between the trio. This instant connection formed the backbone of the enchanting stage presence and musical ability that audiences the world over enjoy today. A successful start to the year with performances at Glasgow’s Celtic Connections festival and a two night sell out show at the Sydney Opera house as part of the Masters of Tradition concert continued with shows in Ireland, the UK and Europe. Blending newly composed tunes with traditional favourites ‘Crossroads’ is a true merging of the old and the new. O’Connor, Hayden and O’Dowd produce music that is breathtaking, descriptive and electrifying – often all at the same time! The magic that is in their music and the respect for each other is apparent on stage and cannot help but leave the audience bewitched by their talent. This long awaited album captures the live essence of the group and has already been hailed as one of the top releases of the year from New York’s Irish Echo. ‘In their eclectic new album with Seamie O’Dowd, the versatile Máirtín O’Connor and Cathal Hayden have managed to bottle the essence of their dynamic live shows.’ SIOBHÁN LONG Irish Times, Ireland Tracks; Crossroads / Catwalk / Fast Boat To Kowloon / Cedars of Lebanon / Dance of Life / Flowers in The Wind / The Geantrai Set / The Liverpool Hornpipe (Banjo set) / The Arrival of The Oueen of Sheeba / The Five Reel Set / The Road Together / Barley and Grape Rag / The Cooley Set / As I Roved Out

VTDC8CD 5060021600820 CD2 VETERAN £9.99 A rare collection of archive traditional music recordings made in Mid-Suffolk between 1958 and 1993 This collection traces John Howson's survey of traditional music making in Mid-Suffolk and includes not only recent recordings, but also fascinating archival recordings made by the few other collectors who ventured into the area. There are old ballads, Music Hall and comic songs, melodeon, mouthorgan and accordion players, plus the rattle of bones and a stepdance, interspersed by reminiscences of musical days gone by. Mid- Suffolk was almost virgin territory when this survey was done in the mid 1980s, and a rich and diverse musical tradition, not unlike that of East Suffolk, was found. Memories and photographs of the musicians, singers, stepdancers and broom dancers are published in the book of the same name. Tracks; DISC ONE.

The Waiting

FOLK

WGS368CD 5016700112825 CD WILD GOOSE £7.99 “This album from Issy, David and Kate is a delight. - Andy Kershaw” Songs and tunes mainly written by Issy in traditional style plus two traditional tunes. Vocals and melodeon from Issy, vocals and strings from David. Beautiful accompaniments from Kate Riaz on cello “That Issy Emeney is a first-rate tunesmith - and a fine player - has been a well-kept secret for some time (check out Lark Rise). Her songwriting, too, deserves our admiration. So accomplished is she and so complete is her empathy with the tradition that she can turn out a song today that would convince even the most tedious purist that it had been handed down across the centuries. Song For A Young Man is exquisitely simple and deeply moving. This album from Issy, David and Kate is a delight.” - Andy Kershaw This is the second album from Issy and David and once agai n they have the superb Kate Riaz accompanying on cello. Many of the songs are composed in her head whilst rambling the beautiful Mendip Hills where she lives with David. Somerset and the family are her main inspiration for composition. Issy plays English concertina and melodeons, Davi d plays guitar, bouzouki and bodran and both provide vocals. Tracks; The Three Men / Lark Rise / The Waiting / The Bristol Sailor / Little Agnes / The Mole Catcher / The Bird Scarer's Song / May to Midsummer / Song for a Young Man / The Gypsy Countess / Jenny Lind, The Reluctant Fiddler, First of September

WGS369CD 5016700112924 CD WILD GOOSE £7.99 On this album, George views things from multiple perspectives, each with their validity yet each als o limited in the view they can afford observing ourselves from the outside. George views things from multiple perspectives, each with their validity yet each also limited in the view they can afford - observing ourselves from the outside. Goerge Papavgeris fell in love with early music and his first guitar at 14, sang protest songs in Thessaloniki, Greece at the time of the colonels’ junta and discovered folk music in Oxford in the 70s. He started to write his own songs about 7 years ago. He is supported on this album by Vicki Swan and Jonny Dyer, very fine performars in their own right, who still humbly take on the role of George’s “Los Marbles” on his albums & some gigs and lug keyboar ds and double bass around in addition to their usual vanful of guitars, nyckelharpa, accordeon, smallpipes etc. Paul Sartin adds character with fiddle, oboe and Chor Anglais. Pete Flood makes cajon, Iraqi frame-drum and Udu pot speak words. Stuart, Paula, Sarah and Kathryn Tindall, lift the harmonies to soaring heights like colourful, sparkling kites riding the breeze. Tracks; Handmedowns / Serendipity / Daniel and Ayse / Thieves of innocence / Miracle of life / Erotokritos / Love of a sort / Rejection / Street Life / Life's dreams - The art of kite flying / Azadeh / Hills Above the city / When foxes rule the street / The last song
