Mondo Rock

Venerable Australian band, lead by Ross Wilson. No, never got a chance to see them play live. Doubt they exist in 2014. I got on board with “Boom Baby Boom” and never looked back. Always thought they had a chance to make it big here, but that never seemed to have happened.

Bo Hansson

Bo Hansson

Happy birthday Hugh Hopper of The Soft Machine (England, 1945). Happy birthday Carl Gardner of The Coasters (1928, TX) and to Lonnie Donegan (1931, Glasgow, Scotland).

Bo Hansson (1943 – 2010), the late Swedish keyboard player. It is said he jammed with Jimi Hendrix – and indeed, Hendrix did cover a Bo Hansson song, “Tax Free”. I never knew about the Hansson & Karlsson records until the end of the 70’s / beginning of the 80’s! And I believe there is a latter day Bo Hansson album that I’ve never seen (“Mitt I Livet”).

Time Machine – March 1974

King Crimson

Time Machine – March 1974

Yesterday, 4/27 Marco Pirroni of Adam & The Ants, born 1959. Also yesterday, happy birthday Peter Ham of Badfinger (1947, Swansea, Wales, England).

From Strange Days magazine in Japan – another edition of the Time Machine, this time from March, 1974 – Curious releases that presently interest the Japanese psyche, as revealed by…

Camel “Mirage” (Deram UK LP SML 1107); King Crimson “Starless & Bible Black” (Island UK LP ILPS 9275); Queen “Queen II” (EMI UK LP EMA 767); Mott The Hoople “The Hoople” (CBS UK LP SCBS 69062); Kansas “s/t” (debut) (Kirshner US LP KZ 32817); Rush “s/t” (debut) Mercury US/Canada LP MN-100); Aerosmith “Get Your Wings” (Columbia US LP KC 32847); Robin Trower “Bridge of Sighs” (Chrysalis UK LP CHR 1057); Peter Frampton “Something’s Happening” A&M UK LP AMLH 63619); Cat Stevens “Buddah & The Chocolate Box” Island UK LP ILPS 9274); Steely Dan “Pretzel Logic” (ABC US LP ABCD-808); and Abba “Waterloo” (Polar Sweden LP POLS 252).

At that time, the only really important title to me was the King Crimson title – I had seen them live the previous year – and was firmly enchanted with Mr. Fripp’s band. I liked the Mott The Hoople LP’s on Island, but it took a few years for me to discover the worth of their CBS era. Always enjoyed Queen’s singles, even saw them live once! I had loved Robin Trower in Procol Harum, but his solo career proceeded largely without me. Cat Stevens was always interesting, too – I had been a huge fan of “Tea For The Tillerman”, but only his singles really made much of an impression on me.

In 2014, I own these LP/CD releases by King Crimson, Mott The Hoople, Robin Trower and Cat Stevens. I own other, different titles by Camel and Queen. Kansas, Rush, Aerosmith, Peter Frampton, Steely Dan and Abba are all “off my radar”, though I will confess I would buy an SA-CD of the live Frampton album, if I could find one cheap enough.

Althea & Donna

Althea & Donna

As far as I know, this is the whole story of Althea & Donna. I think they were quite young when they had their UK hit with “Uptown Top Ranking”, and there was only 1 x LP / CD in their output. In 1978, they had a fabulous 12” single, “Going To Negril” – which never saw the light of day in the US – as far as I know! KROQ-FM used to play the hell out of “Uptown Top Ranking” – and it drove the people at the record distributor nuts, as Sire deleted the 45 of it almost as soon as they initially issued it!

After a while, in England I was told numerous tales about women showing up at the record label (Lightning) saying, “We’re the real Althea & Donna”, further muddling the already murky waters.

Island 50th Annv.

4-22-67 The Who release the 45 “Pictures Of Lily” b/w “Doctor Doctor” (a John Entwistle song).      Happy birthday Glenn Campbell (1938, Delight, AR).  Happy birthday jazz bassist Charles Mingus (1922).

For many years, I tried to stay away from re-issue LP’s. In fact, I had very few until somewhat recently. Last year in Portland, I found Grace Jones “Nightclubbing” as an Island Records 50th pressing was quiet and “deep”, much better than my US Island via Warner Brothers issue on LP.

So, I started picking up these re-issue LP’s, whenever I found them for a good price.

I found a few more Island 50th (Second Hand “Reality”!) out of England; some Record Store Day issues etc. Seems to me that newer pressings tend to be rather quiet – no rumble etc. And not every label takes great care re-creating the cover packaging.

Anyway, I now have a crate full of this type of LP pressings! That’s not as many LP’s as would usually fit into a crate, as some of the covers tend to be rather ‘fat’ (over-sized?) – and, generally speaking, the new covers tend to be just only slightly larger than most original covers.

I remember when I got excited (again) about vinyl towards the end of the 90’s, there seemed to be very few titles that never made it to vinyl – one of the 90’s A Certain Ratio LP’s comes to mind, as does “Psychoderelict” by Pete Townshend; the re-formed Traffic LP “Far From Home”, never saw an LP of that!

And some newer stuff that initially started out as CD-only that mercifully got a vinyl issue (or re-issue), notably the Syd Barrett “An Introduction To Syd Barrett” 2LP set on Capitol; and some more A Certain Ratio titles, such as “The Graveyard & The Ballroom” – initially only released as a Factory Records cassette, eventually got a CD re-issue – and finally – a vinyl LP re-issue!

As long ago as ’97, I was searching out vinyl issues of newer titles by Japanese artists, such as Cornelius, Pizzicato Five and Kahimi Karie. I even got a vinyl LP of a title that I was asked to write liner notes for, the re-formed Watermelon LP on Major Force, “Out Of Body Experience”!

Some catalogues would intrigue me, if they saw re-issue, others not so much. And the usual great expense of new vinyl re-issues generally keeps me from buying many of them when “new”. I mean, “$30 for a new single LP?” – if it’s a double LP, maybe $30 isn’t so steep…

I know not everybody makes the leap from DVD to Blu-ray, but the leap to vinyl from CD certainly didn’t eliminate “bad mastering”, as so many 80’s CD’s had – low levels, unclear high-end or muddy bass etc. Good thing I kept buying 12” singles well into the 90’s, eh?

Steve Hackett

Steve Hackett

On 4/18, Happy birthday to Mike Vickers of Manfred Mann.  On 4/19, Happy birthday to Alan Price of The Animals (1942).  Also on 4/19, Happy birthday to Mark Volman of The Turtles (1947). Some sources put this date as Iggy Pop’s birthday (1947).

Steve Hackett, the former guitarist of Genesis – I rather enjoy his debut solo album, but there is material on many of his later albums that warrants investigation.  I also remember getting some videotapes / laserdiscs of Hackett’s live performances, some of which were rather good / interesting.
