It is a remarkable musical-cultural shift in perspective and one that carries the listener with it. Exploding with near chaotic energy, this album makes a great soundtrack to a party about to teeter out of control. Cut all analog! Dreams run...

Sightless, peerless, multi-instrumentalist, Roland’s Kirk’s 1967 debut for Atlantic is a monster of a live set from ‘65 featuring pianists Lonnie Liston Smith and Jaki Byard, bassist Major Holley and drummer Charles Crosby- all put to tape in Atlantic Studios NYC. Cut all analog, pressed on orange vinyl! Think of Rahsaan Roland Kirk and a series of images flick through one’s mind. There he is, black beret and shades blowing three saxophones at once, next...

Savage Queens proto-punk! In the tsunami of American bands formed after the Beatles’ appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1964, many made records, some had hits, and some even had sustained success like their idols. But there were just as many who carved out a niche in their local scenes, yet never made it to vinyl and faded...

In musical history the term “lost classic” is as overused as a bicycle horn at a clown convention, but it’s scarcely been more applicable than in the case of The 8th Wonders’ potent but postage stamp-sized catalog. Now, for the first time since 1968, the whole tale...

When Ra and his business partner Alton Abraham launched their pioneering independent Saturn label in Chicago in the late 1950s, and on thru the 1960s—by which time Ra had moved to New York—each new album was carefully curated, titled, packaged with a printed, illustrated sleeve, and promoted in ads and catalogs. By the 1970s, when Ra and his band...

James White tore up the city blueprints and charted his own map through the sonic sprawl of New York, perfecting a jittery, manic attack on sax and vocals and adopting the persona of a lounge singer in the waiting room of Hell. A maelstrom of chaotic transformations of funk, jazz (et al.) with equal parts James Brown and James White originals that rank among the most incendiary in his...

                                                        1966 was a busy year for the Shadows of Knight! Hot on heels of their hit '66 debut album and monster single "Gloria," they released their second long player, Back Door Men, before the year was out. It was another combustible collection of blazing blues covers and smoking originals. While there was still plenty of garage grit, they had already begun evolving stylistically.

                                                            Long before the silver sparkle Telecasters and Hee-Haw, Buck Owens was trodding the boards of Bakersfield bar stages, paying his dues and winning fans one twang at a time. Released on January 30, 1961, Buck Owens' self-titled debut LP marked the start of his long, unprecedented career as a recording artist for Capitol Records. Bolstered by four charting singles- "Second Fiddle," "Under Your Spell Again," "Above and Beyond" and "Excuse Me (I Think I've Got a Heartache)"- the album spotlights...
