Chas Jankel

Happy birthday Thijs van Leer of Focus (1948).  Angus Young (of AC/DC) born in Glasgow, Scotland on this date, 1959.  Herb Alpert born 1937 (Los Angeles, CA).  Happy birthday Mick Ralphs of Mott The Hoople and Bad Company (1948, Hertfordshire, England).  Yesterday, 3/30 happy birthday to Eric Clapton of John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers and Cream (1945, Ripley, England).

We conclude March 2014 with an artist that has an album I really like not on CD legit!  Ladies & gentlemen, Mr. Chas Jankel!

Angel Air in England did the debut solo album, but didn’t continue, for some reason.  I would really enjoy a legit CD issue for “Questionnaire”, his 2nd solo album, with some great Ian Dury co-writing going on!  Never warmed as much to “Chazablanca” or “Looking At You”, but I got the LP’s when I could find them.

Cornelius – Fantasma re-issue

Cornelius Fantasma re-issue

On 3/28, Happy birthday to Rufus Thomas (“The Funky Chicken”) (1917).

Something I never knew about!  Apparently, in 2003, Warner Music Japan re-issued Cornelius’ “Fantasma” CD as a 2CD + DVD set!  Honest, I never knew about this one!  It’s a different shape to the original double jewel box release of “Fantasma”, so why didn’t I notice it when I was last in Japan in 2007?  Oops, I see a 2010 release date, so no wonder there!

Looks like this sucker would’ve set you back 5,800 yen!  Disc 1 is the proper 13 track version of “Fantasma” – the 14 track version came with headphones (Trattoria / Polystar PSCR-9107), the 14th track being a ‘bonus” for the original edition; 2nd version (Trattoria / Polystar PSCR-5623) is 17 tracks, but, as I recall – everything after the 13th track is just him messing around; both the LP version (Trattoria / Polystar PSJR-9121) and US CD version (Matador OLE 300) are the proper 13 track version.

Disc 2 is 16 tracks comprised of songs that Cornelius gave to compilations (“Lazy”, “BallIn Kick Off” etc), or B-Sides / alt. tracks (“Typewrite lesson”); there are additionally remixes by the High Llamas, The Pastels, Yasuharu Konishi of Pizzicato 5, Damon Albarn of Blur etc.  And some BBC live versions, a ‘demo’ and the promo-only CD3 of “Fantasma Spot” (and an alternate version of that!).  16 tracks gathered for your listening enjoyment.

Disc 3 is a DVD, alas – Area Code 2, so I had to hook-up the funky “plays everything” DVD player to see it – 52 minutes:  “Live At Budokan” – a show I actually saw!  And a short tour film of him playing in Europe and the US followed by the videoclip for “Star Fruits Star Rider” and concluding with the Fantasma TV Spot!

So, this has eluded me since 2010!  Can’t read the all-in-Japanese liner notes; the booklet definitely isn’t like the original CD, which was a double-width book.  Nice heavy cardboard paper sleeves for each of the 3 discs.  Fantasma!

I saw Cornelius play live in Japan twice, once at the beginning of this tour, then again much later.  Also saw him once in Los Angeles.  It was an interesting diversion from all of the Pizzicato 5 “hype” – got me into concerts in the late 90’s!

And the original Japanese LP for “Fantasma” is a thing of beauty – something to behold!

Tangerine Dream

Tangerine Dream

Happy birthday Diana Ross of The Supremes (1944)

I guess it is safe to say I have been a casual fan of Tangerine Dream.  Always more or less tried to have all of their 70’s albums, and I only have a smattering of what came after their Virgin Records years.  I do not remember if I ever saw this music performed on a stage by these people.  I remember seeing Kraftwerk, with less than spectacular results.

Start with “Phaedra” and then graduate on to the original soundtrack of “Sorceror” – I remember going into a movie theatre with a large sound system and NOT watching that film, just listening to the music!

And where’s my SA-CD of “Rubycon”?  I’ve never even seen a copy, and I bet it’s real 5.1 fun!

Time Machine – January 1974

Carly Simon

Happy birthday Hoyt Axton (1938, Duncan, OK).  Happy birthday Nick Lowe of Brinsley Schwarz and Rockpile (1949).  Some sources give this date as the birthday of Elton John (as Reginald Dwight) (1947).

Strange Days magazine in Japan is continuing their “Time Machine” series – unfortunately, I can’t read Japanese!  But I can recognize the covers…

January 1974 releases this time are ex-Roxy Music member Brian Eno “Here Come The Warm Jets” (Island UK LP ILPS 9268); clown-make-up wearing Leo Sayer “Silverbird” (Chrysalis UK LP CHR 1050); Rod Stewart & The Faces – “Live, Coast to Coast – Overture and Beginners” (Mercury UK LP 9100 001); Canadian Gordon Lightfoot “Sundown” (Reprise US LP MS 2177); Canadian Joni Mitchell “Court and Spark” (Asylum US 7E 1001); Carly Simon “Hotcakes” (Asylum US 7E 1002); Bob Dylan “Planet Waves” (Asylum 7E 1003); Gram Parsons “Grevious Angel” (Reprise US MS 2171); and – finallyFoghat “Energized” (Bearsville US LP BR 6950).

Looks like the Japanese have taken an interest in Asylum Records, via Warner Brothers (US) Records!  Three titles from them this month!

I don’t remember who got the Brian Eno LP first, myself or my childhood best friend, Darrell.  It was viewed with a certain amount of suspicion, at least I did not take to it immediately, it was unlike most of what I was liking at that time – no glam rock for me!  I heard the Leo Sayer singles on the radio (“The Show Must Go On”), but never investigated the LP until much later – I mean, the guy has on clown make-up!  I liked The Faces and Rod Stewart just fine, but I didn’t buy the live album right away – I had somehow formed the opinion that live albums at that time were bonus releases, and not necessarily part of an artist’s ‘body of work’ to be regarded etc.  I definitely liked The Faces electric piano sound!  Having heard Gordon Lightfoot on the AM radio, I would never even have considered spending my hard-earned teen cash on one of his LP’s – somebody else’s problem / troubles!  Perhaps I was even too young to be held in the arms of Joni Mitchell, her message was definitely not received by my young ears – though a very good friend – years later – kept telling me her first half-dozen LP’s were formidable.  I simple didn’t go there!  Ahem, it’s 1974 folks – I was in high school, approx. 15-16 years old – was it absolutely necessary for me to even look at an LP cover of a pregnant woman that I didn’t necessarily like?  Don’t get me wrong, I liked the pregnant woman on the cover of that Herb Alpert LP!  I kind of disliked James Taylor, too – and that was who had assisted her in this condition.  So, no use then or now for Carly Simon!  Bob Dylan was firmly off my radar by 1974, with no regard whatsoever for his previous performances with The Band – I simply didn’t hear it, didn’t own it etc. until many years later, when I found an Island UK copy of it for cheap at Record Surplus.  I did not hear the Gram Parsons LP until many years later, did not care at all in 1974.  I had been a Savoy Brown fan, but never any use for Foghat – who were they making this boogie music for?  I didn’t even start drinking beer until I turned 21!

#218 Playlist

#218 Playlist

On 3/22 happy birthday to Keith Relf of The Yardbirds and Armageddon! (1943).  Happy birthday to Carl Palmer of Emerson, Lake & Palmer (and Asia), 1951 (Birmingham, England).  Also on 3/22, happy birthday to guitarist George Benson (1943, Pittsburgh, PA).  Tomorrow on 3/21 happy birthday to Vivian Stanshall of The Bonzo Dog Band (1943, Shillingford, England).  Also on 3/22, happy birthday to Harry Vanda (born Harry Wandan) the Vanda of Vanda & Young) (1947).

Made over 2 nights – the #218 playlist is a combination of records I just got plus sparkling things from the collection – at hand.

Sade 12” still not on CD, I wonder why?  Chas Jankel track from “Questionnaire”, still not on CD legit, I wonder why?  A while back I found 2 x mono US Freddie & The Dreamers LP’s, and on this playlist, I used tracks from both LP’s!  A Certain Ratio track from “Early” 2LP set that I got in Portland last year.  James Brown 45 is a recent find, and real good!  Eric Burdon & The Animals promo 45 was a recent find, likely Buena Park – and it’s a slightly different version of “Monterey” – absolutely amazing!  Family 45 came recently, and this is the B-Side – but still real good – and in perfect condition, for a 1970 45.  Herman’s Hermits is a recent UK 45 find.  Procol Harum B-Side came from a re-issue 45 of “A Whiter Shade of Pale” that I found long ago.  Darryl Way’s Wolf “Anteros” comes from the “Night Music” LP, found recently.  Bonniwell’s Music Machine LP on Warner Brothers is amazing, doesn’t matter what you pick – I picked “Double Yellow Line” this time!  Jefferson Airplane LP track is from a German “Best Of” LP obtained last year in Santa Barbara.  2nd Procol Harum track is from “Broken Barricades” Dutch variant LP I found up in Washington state last year.  The Temperence Seven LP is a mono miracle I found in San Luis Obispo last year.  Jukka Tolonen LP “High Flying” came from Rhino Claremont.  More Freddie & The Dreamers!  Tommy Tedesco LP came from Santa Cruz, CA.  Lenny Dee LP came from Whittier, CA.  Recently obtained the LP version of the ’11 Magazine title, “No Thyself” – amazing!  Twinkle Brothers is from a UK 10” record that I’ve owned for years – been working on th e10” titles lately, anyhow!  Which brings us to the UK 10” of “Messages” by O.M.D. – there wasn’t a 12” version, but this is as good as that would’ve been!

So, this is what I was listening to last week!

#217 Playlist

3/10/14

Happy birthday Derek Longmuir of The Bay City Rollers (1955, Edinburgh, Scotland).  Happy birthday to Ornette Coleman, squonk jazz sax player (1930, Fort Worth, TX); Happy birthday Terry Hall, singer of The Specials and Fun Boy Three (1959).

Today’s playlist is from that batch of 45’s I found at “The Last Book Store” in downtown Los Angeles, essentially.

Always really liked “Fanx Tara” by Sad Café, and it’s taken me 30 years to find a few of their UK 45’s!  This is a great Savoy Brown 45 – not sure if it’s an “edit” or not.  Looks like Deram is trying to cash-in on Cat Stevens’ fame with A&M Records – this 45 is dated 1971.  Ten Years After B-Side for “Love Like A Man” (45 edit).  Thomas Dolby 12” track, first time I’ve seen this 12” single.  Ian Dury 12” with good sound!  Danielle Dax from a Warner Brothers sampler LP.  “Easy Hits” from The Lennon Sisters, approx. 1967!  Great Johnny Rivers track, from his “A Touch Of Gold” best of collection LP, a German pressing.  Joe Cocker track from a UK compilation LP.  Godley & Crème extended version / remix from a variant of the 12” single for “Cry” – different prefix!  Shriekback “Care” LP on Warner Brothers.  Freddie Cannon “Talahassie Lassie” from a German best of “Reflection” LP.  Hot Chocolate with a non-hit from the LP that also brought you “You Sex Thing”.  Sutherland Brothers & Quiver with a track from a UK 1977 LP that was also a single, though I used an LP version.  16-60-75 (Numbers Band) 45 from Ohio.  Latter day Box Tops 45.  Love Sculpture / Dave Edmunds 45 B-Side.  I remember seeing the Dave Howard Singers on a videocassette years ago, but never saw any records – this one’s produced by J. J. Burnel of The Stranglers.  Lenny Dee latter day LP from 1978.  And a 2nd Ian Dury 12” with good sound!

Sorting

LP Cartons

Happy birthday soul singer Wilson Pickett (1941).

A problem with my collection has been to keep things sorted by artist.  Surprise!  It hasn’t happened.  So, I start to think about what I want to sort – and I get an idea of what to look for, as I cruise my boxes of unsorted LP’s.

45’s are a bit easier than LP’s, as they are smaller.  I did an initial sort of 45’s about a year ago – with cartons all over the living room.  For LP’s, my first count of LP cartons is approx. 37 cartons of unsorted LP’s!

On my first pass looking through all of those cartons, I started separating all the titles I could find by The Rolling Stones.  I quickly got a box full of Rolling Stones titles, as they have so many releases!  Next, I could do The Beatles or Pink Floyd – but I obviously don’t have as many Pink Floyd LP’s – though I do seem to have a large supply of variants!

So, eventually, all of my big collections should be together.  As visitors to my house know, I have 4 main walls that are covered in LP shelving.  Presently, the US / UK Rock A-Z is in my old bedroom; the comedy LP’s. NZ releases, French / German / Japanese LP’s are all in the den.

Imagine this: You and I are discussing something to do with music – once all of my stuff gets sorted, I’ll know where everything is!  I will be able to easily find everything!

Perhaps this will even get me to some of my discussed projects – what to dub from vinyl onto CD-R etc.!  There’s an exhilarating feeling when I find something that I have been looking for!

The Last Book Store, downtown Los Angeles

Andy Roberts / Everyone

Happy birthday to John Sebastian of The Lovin’ Spoonful (1944).

I recently went back to The Last Book Store, in downtown Los Angeles.  This store isn’t difficult to get to, but parking can be a hassle, or expensive.

Certainly some obscure / intense 45’s to be had!

The Nits

The Nits

Happy birthday Neil Sedaka (1939).  On 3/15, happy birthday Ryland Cooder (1947, Los Angeles, CA) also to Sylvester Stewart (Sly Stone) (1944).

I first wrote to The Nits about 1981 or so – Michiel Peters answered me.  I have remained friendly with him ever since.  However, I haven’t been to Europe in over 20 years now.  Today, I highlight the records of The Nits that feature guitarist Michiel Peters.
