John “Drumbo” French Cat.No: PMO101 Format: BOOK

Title

Beefheart: Through The Eyes Of Magic Barcode: 9780956121219 Label: PROPER RECORDS Genre: ROCK/POP

Written by the man who spent more time than anyone else with Don Van Vliet and The Magic Band this book serves as the definitive book about the group. Clocking in at nearly 900 pages with 16 pages of very rare and often previously unpublished photos this is already causing a stir in the media. Tracing the history of the group it includes reminiscences from key members of The Magic Band and The Mothers Of Invention. There are amazing stories about the recording process, particularly Trout Mask Replica, and life on the road with the Captain. Confirmed articles/extracts in The Sunday Times, Mojo and The Wire. Reviews in Q, Mojo, Word and more.

Few names carry such formidable mystique and rabid cult status as Captain Beefheart, who led various line-ups of his Magic Band to make some of the most startling, ground-breaking albums of the last century. In 1982, he retired to concentrate on painting, leaving the mythology he’d stoked himself to grow untamed over the years. John French is better qualified than anyone to talk about Beefheart, joining the Magic Band in 1966 at the age of 17 just before recording their Safe As Milk debut album, finding himself plunged into a tyrannical regime which would dominate his life for the next 14 years as he played a major role in eight subsequent albums, including translating the mind-blowing avantblues assault of 1969’s Trout Mask Replica into readable music for the Magic Band from the Captain’s piano poundings under torturous conditions he likens to a cult. French’s remarkable memoir starts with a vivid description of the rarely-documented early 60s Lancaster garage-rock scene which also spawned names like Ry Cooder and Beefheart’s childhood friend and later nemesis Frank Zappa, whose appearances in the book will enthral his own legion of fans. As his spellbinding, often shocking tale unwinds, he encounters names including jazz giant Ornette Coleman, Jim Morrison and Paul McCartney, writing with dry, sometimes surreal humour and disarming honesty about his old boss and even himself, occasionally bringing in his old Magic Band comrades to jog his memory. The book is packed with new revelations, many previously-unseen photos and enough anecdotes to keep the Beefheart faithful ruminating for years, French finally crystallising and bringing to life over 40 years of legend and speculation in what has to be the ultimate book on the mercurial genius of Captain Beefheart.

BLUES

CD + DVD package for the price of single CD Luther taught each of us many lessons; perseverance, acceptance, redemption, triumph, unrequited friendship, and generous, overwhelming love. His most enduring lesson, however, may be the message to live our lives in the precious present. To hold his precious present, Luther assaulted endings. Every night he battled the performer’s enemy, curfews and closing times. He extended encores for hours as one song became five became ten. He fought to keep club lights on until every fan had been personally touched. It was these exquisite moments Luther never ignored. His final message to us all was “Leave your ego, play the music, love the people.” We need to remember how warm his heart was to all. We need to remember he saw only people, no color difference. We need to live our lives and conduct our affairs remembering his final words. Thomas Ruf, Luther’s dear friend and owner of Ruf Records, sums up the loss best, “The Blues lost a true hero. Luther had the unique ability to pull new fans in to the blues.” Whenever I left a Luther show, I wished I could see the experience over and over again. Songs From The Road is the ultimate celebration of Luther Allison’s powerful message to the world. From Art Tipaldi – Contributing Editor of Blues Revue and BluesWax and the author of the book Children Of The Blues, Profiles of 49 Blues Musicians, including Luther and Bernard Allison.

Byd Bach RASAL

ROCK/POP

Acclaimed and award winning author and singer songwriter releases her third studio album. Unlike her first two albums, “Byd Bach” (Small World) is a concept album that takes the listener on a whistle-stop tour of the artist’s favourite haunts in Wales. During the trip, you get to see a little bit of everywhere, namely Aberaeron, Porthgain, Penrhiwllan and Cardiff, before she charges back up the A470, paying visits to Anglesey and Llandygai Mountain. There has certainly never been a Welsh album like it. As soon as we hear “Pobol Bach,” Fflur’s playful response to the Randy Newman song, “Short People,” in which she introduces us to the “short” cast of her “Small World,” or Abercuawg, an imaginary place referenced by the poet R.S. Thomas, we realise that we are in the hands of an unusual and gifted songwriter. Certainly there is something on this album for everyone, and it once again showcases the unique partnership between Fflur and her excellent band. Although no one musical style drives the album, with each location claiming its own particular musical style and flavour, we can certainly recognise the musical energy and strong, catchy melodies that have come to characterise “Fflur Dafydd a’r Barf”, and have certainly been responsible for their broad appeal in Wales and beyond. Tracks; Pobol Bach / 47dim / Caerdydd / Penrhiwllan / Aberaeron / Byd Bach / Porthgain / Y Llwybrau / Abercuawg / R Ymylon

Post her genre-defining solo release ‘Songs From The Acid Folk’, former Curved Air vocalist and songwriter Kristina moved on to ‘astro folk’ with 1994’s ‘Harmonics of Love’, an album that bridges her progressive rock and acid folk past with the electronic experimentalism that was to emerge in the noughties via a giddy ‘new age’ rush of melodic and ambient music connecting acousticity to studio effects and natural sounds sampled from locations as disparate as the Amazon rain forest and that year’s Glastonbury Festival.

Album Of The Year Scottish Trad Awards 2009 Constantly drawing inspiration from their rich,unique roots in the Shetland Islands,Fiddlers’ Bid have come to epitomise the vibrant sound of contemporary Shetland music. ‘All dressed in yellow’ is the next giant leap forward in the musical lives of the seven formidable musicians that make up Fiddlers’ Bid. Constantly drawing inspiration from their rich, unique roots in the Shetland Islands, Fiddlers’ Bid have come to epitomise the vibrant sound of contemporary Shetland music. Since the creation of the band eighteen years ago their open mindedness and desire to constantly develop, has seen the band turn into an international act in every sense of the word. Band members now travel from the U.S.A., Norway, Scotland and of course Shetland to share their music with other cultures, worldwide, including Japan, Australia, USA and all over Europe. 'All Dressed in Yellow' has been a labour of love for the band for the past two years. The music was inspired by and created in Shetland, Gartmore, (on the edge of the Trossachs in Scotland) and the beautiful Norwegian island of Søtra. Whether it was the isolation of a small farm house in Shetland or the outdoor hot tubs and swims in the freezing fjords of Søtra, the band have come up with an album full of vibrance and creativity. The band chose to record in the highly acclaimed ‘British Grove’ studios in London and working with one of the countries top engineers and producers Calum Malcolm, Fiddlers’ Bid have created their finest album to date. The ‘Bids’ now trademark raw energy and emotion combined with stunning precision has been captured to dazzling effect. Please share in the power yet fragility of this band as they pour out their ideas into their love of the Shetland fiddle tradition. They have a recipe that you will treasure. Fiddlers’ Bid are.

ROCK 'N' ROLL

It hardly seems necessary to write sales notes for Cliff Richard; what can we say about him that hasn’t been said before. Unquestionably Britain’s greatest rock ‘n’ roll star, Cliff’s career which started in the late 50’s and is still running 60 years on, he has to be a living legend. However, as with Elvis, many of us feel his best days were undoubtedly when he was a rock ‘n’ roller rather than his later ballad and crooner years. This double compilation puts together all his recordings from the last years of the 50’s including some recordings from his first film outing. Many feature the Drifters as backing band who of course then mutated into the Shadows. Simply the best of Cliff in the 50’s this 70 track double album will delight both old and new fans. A great addition to the series. Tracks; CD1.

Change was an Italian-American Disco/R&B group formed in Bologna, Italy in 1979 by the creative genius of businessman and executive producer Jacques Fred Petrus (1949-1986) and Mauro Malavasi. The band had massive success throughout Europe in the 80’s and this double CD contains every major hit from the band as well as those mixes and tracks that are considered essential to the serious collector, including 2 previously unreleased tracks. The digipak also includes a 32 page booklet covering the bands history. The band's debut album, The Glow Of Love, was released in 1980 and featured the million seller "A Lover's Holiday". The follow-up hits from the album, "Searching" and the title song feature lead vocals by the then unknown Luther Vandross. The three songs combined spent 9 weeks at #1 on Billboard's Disco charts, enough to make it the #1 Disco album of the year and a million seller in the U.S. The follow-up album, Miracles, featured the hits "Paradise", "Hold Tight," and "Heaven Of My Life," which, combined, spent 6 weeks at the number one spot in 1981 on Billboard's Disco chart. With the help of up and rising producers Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis the group re-established itself having their first top ten R&B hit in three years with the title song from their Change Of Heart album in 1984.

SOUNDWAY

WORLD

Arguably West Africa’s best-kept musical secret, Orchestre Poly Rhythmo are from the Republic of Benin, West Africa and are a household name in their home country. This collection reflects their many poly-rhythmic styles including hard afro-funk, driving afrobeat, deep afro-Latin and Cuban grooves – this fusion is the product of combining the sounds they had heard in Lagos with two traditional Vodun rhythms: Sato and Sakpata. Being such a small country, Benin has had little in the way of musical exposure over the years and many people have no idea it’s exact location sandwiched alongside Togo between Ghana and Nigeria. In 2009 the band reformed and embarked on their first European tour putting Benin firmly on the map. This compilation earmarks the cream of their recording output that sounds as fresh today as it did then. Touring Europe extensively in 2010 Press Quotes: “One of the hottest funk bands in Seventies Africa. Finally, Britain is discovering their magic sound.” The Telegraph “Hot afro licks with a magical and hypnotic quality” MOJO (UK) Tracks: Aihe Ni Kpe we / Les Djos / Gendamou Na Wili We Gnannin / Mi Si Ba To / Avoun Doupou Me Douga / kokoriko / Ne Te Faches Pas / Kou Tche Kpo So O / Gbeto Vivi / Agnon Djidjo / Medida / Angelina II

Mick’s long association with Liverpool and the sea is reflected in rousing and heart-warming renditions of Santy Anno and Marques. The latter borrowed from fellow Spinner Hughie Jones.

The newer tradition gives us the D-Day Dodgers and Flowers of Manchester, a version re-recorded in 2008 to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the Munich Air Disaster. Returning the rich seam of home grown song, rousing renditions of Derby Ram, John Barleycorn and Bucket of the Mountain Dew, are joined by the atmospheric She Move Through the Fair and Carrickfergus then back to the sea with Lord Franklin and Greenland WhaleFishing.
