Dick Schory

Happy birthday to Ann-Margaret (1941)!

Dick Schory “Music for Bang, Baa-room and Harp” by Dick Schory’s New Percussion Ensemble (Analogue Productions SA-CD, 2016, originally recorded for R.C.A. in 1958.)

http://www.pas.org/About/the-society/halloffame/DickSchory.aspx

This one got me out of bed at 5:00am, so forgive me if words fail me!  This LP / SA-CD was originally produced by Bob Bollard, in stereo, in 1958 – Orchestra Hall, Chicago June 2 and 3, 1958; Joe Wells and his Chicago crew handled the engineering.  Charlie Pruzansky somehow managed to snatch the three-track equipment still warm from a Van Cliburn New York session and have it appear at 7:00am Monday morning in Chicago.

The sound is detailed and WOW!  I am glad Analogue Productions saw fit to issue this classic as an SA-CD; “National Emblem March; Baia; Way Down Yonder In New Orleans; Ding Song Polks; April In Paris; Holiday In A Hurry; Buck Dance; Duel On The Skins; September In The Rain; Tiddley Winks; The Sheik Of Araby; Typee”  “Typee” is composed and arranged by Dick Schory and Bobby Christian; the rest are standard easy listening fare for 1958, but with LOTS more percussion!

I guess the Chicago Symphony Hall is where the full Chicago Symphony used to perform with Fritz Reiner at the helm.  Certainly some of his percussionists were present on “Music for Bang, Baa-room and Harp”!

So this recording was not only one of the earliest stereo recordings, it was done with microphone placement that would likely baffle modern humans; the tape recorder was a 3 track Ampex and the microphones were Telefunken 47’s, wide open.  “The big contribution of stereo is space”, the liner notes tell us.

So, crank up your stereo, get “Music for Bang, Baa-room and Harp” as an SA-CD and GO!  Amazing stuff!

Neu ’75

2016.04.27

Happy birthday to singer Sheena Easton (1959)!

Neu ‘75

“Neu ‘75” doesn’t seem to deviate from the ‘usual’ Neu formula.  It sounds like Michael Rother and Klaus Dinger were only on their way to being bored with the band.  I never read why they called it a day after this LP.  Maybe Dinger got pissed at Rother because of Harmonia?

There is plenty of “motorik” bear here; the 45 here is “Isi” b/w After Eight”, but a lot of the rest of the album merely sounds like they were heading towards an even more ‘minimal’ sound.

Yet this LP doesn’t particularly sound like Rother’s debut solo LP, ‘Flammende Herzen”.

So, there is plenty here for the individual interested in German ‘musik’.

All 3 Neu albums came out in the UK; my copy of “Neu ‘75” is from Japan (with a gorgeous yellow label) – Capitol released the LP in the U.S. (for some reason).  It’s not like people were crying out to hear it.

And, of course, they never played here, that I am aware of.  I would’ve been all over that!  And I would’ve been almost old enough!

There will be those who will say “Hero” and “After Eight” influenced UK punk rock, but I really doubt it.  Punks (in England anyway) come from “pub rock”, not “Prog rock”, which I believe “Neu ‘75” to be.

Capability Brown

Happy birthday to Duane Eddy (1938) and Gary Wright (Spooky Tooth) (1945).

Capability Brown

Capability Brown were a British band that were not entirely unlike the band Queen, except they had very little success; 2 x wonderful LP’s (US & UK) that did not sell well and some 45’s – none of which were particularly successful.

What Capability Brown had in abundance were great harmony vocals!  And yes, you would probably classify them as “progressive rock”, as was the style in 1972/3.

Their albums have some fairly interesting cover versions; really good cover versions!  Songs by Rare Bird (who were labelmates), Russ Ballard (“Liar”), Alan Hull (another labelmate) & Steely Dan (“Midnight Cruiser”)!

Before they were Capability Brown, some (most) of them were in a band called Harmony Grass; after Capability Brown some (most) of them were in a band called Krazy Kat.  As far as I know, there was not a Harmony Grass LP to be had – I never saw one!  But I do have 2 x LP’s by Krazy Kat! (“China Seas” and “Troubled Air”, both on Mountain Records).  Actually, neither of those LP’s are as impressive to me as Capability Brown were!

They (Capability Brown) must be somewhat popular in Japan, as for 20+ years the sole CD on them was their 2nd LP “Voice”; a few years back, Japan issued both of their albums as kami sleeves – and did the UK even bother?  No, there aren’t any bonus tracks on ANY of the CD issues…

For many years, it was possible to buy practically their entire output for about $4.-, but it looks like those days are behind us now, alas.

So, why wasn’t this band more popular?

It is a mystery why bands with considerably less skill were more popular.  But you can’t say that they didn’t have U.S. LP’s – they had 2 of them!  And, of course, they never played live in the U.S.!

So, file under “Unexplained UK Mysteries” – despite the fact that the drawer is getting fairly full!

Grand Funk Railroad

Happy birthday to Craig Frost (Grand Funk Railroad) (1948)!

I remember having my flames fanned by seeing them on “Mid Summer Rock” about 1970 or so!  For a year or so there, it was a fairly big deal!

Years later, I remember reading that Mark Farner was a ‘figure of fun’, not to be taken seriously.  But, I got those 45’s!

Deep Purple

Happy birthday to Loretta Lynn (1940) and Ritchie Blackmore (of Deep Purple and Blackmore’s Rainbow).

Has to be Deep Purple today, as I don’t have more than a “Millennium Collection” for Loretta Lynn!

The Turtles

Happy Birthday Jack Cassidy (Jefferson Airplane and Hot Tuna) (1944); Jim Pons (of The Turtles) (1946); R&B singer Al Green (1946) and Jimmy Destri (member of Blondie) (1954).

The Turtles

I remember liking them as a young person.  I wasn’t a fan until Flo & Eddie joined Frank Zappa’s band – then I could appreciate their talent!  BTW, Howard Kaylan’s book (“Shell Shocked”) is amazing!
