I`M A LONER

Band:SHAWN PHILLIPS
Album:I`M A LONER
Label:TIME
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Folk

LIMITED VINYL REISSUE!

Phillips was still in pretty much of a traditional early-'60s folk troubadour mode on his debut album, on which he's accompanied only by his 12-string acoustic guitar. He did stand out from much of the competition (certainly in Britain, where the American singer was based by the time of this mid-'60s release) by virtue of his eclectic repertoire, impassioned delivery, and imaginative arrangements. He wasn't as much of an innovator as peers such as Dino Valenti and Fred Neil were in this respect, but like them he was breaking away to some degree from hidebound, stiff folk deliveries. He wasn't recording much original material, though, and this set is largely devoted to covers of songs by the likes of Phil Ochs (including the obscure "I'm Tired"; Ochs' own version wouldn't be released until the 1980s), Hamilton Camp's "Pride of Man" (years before Quicksilver Messenger Service popularized it as a rock song), and Travis Edmonson's title track, which is better known under the title "The Drifter." The inclusion of a couple of mainstream pop/musical standards ("It Was a Very Good Year" and "My Favourite Things") was certainly a departure for a hip young folksinger of the time. The three original tunes were OK, though not outstanding -- numbers that, like most of the album, project an earnestness that is both likable and dated. Shortly after its first appearance, this was issued again under the title Favorite Things; in 1999, it was reissued on CD by Wounded Bird.

 

 

LET THEM EAT PI

Band:PI CORP / ALAN HOWARTH
Album:LET THEM EAT PI
Label:ALMAKARMA
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Psych/Garage Reissues

LTD VINYL REISSUE WITH GATEFOLD COVER + INSERT

Pi Corp features the early works and innovative sounds of electronic music Pioneer Alan Howarth. Alan began his musical career in Cleveland playing with bands like ‘The Tree Stumps’, ‘The Renaissance Faire’, ‘The Silk’, and the first electronic band in Cleveland called ‘Braino’. Howarth went on to become one of the most sought after composer / sound designers in Hollywood. Also featured are some unforgettable and strangely haunting vocals by Woody Leffel; formerly of RCA recording artist Granicus. Woody plates a unique slice of Pi with the raw vocal style of Robert Plant and an improvisational storytelling style that he coined as “speech-sing”. The whole Pi Corp mission was to create music and lyrics spontaneously. “With the exception of “Together” and “Just Another Song”, our only two attempts at songwriting, and the two tracks with Marilyn, everything on the CD was conceived and played with absolutely no prior discussion or rehearsal… it was recorded just as it happened” says the guitarist Guy Bickel. The additional bonus tracks give the listener a much better sense of the evolving band and their mission. Pieces such as “Rock N Roll Show” and “Never Sell Out on You”, show off the extraordinary, improvisational talents of Woody Leffel. “Let Them Eat Pi”, “Organic”, and “Hash Market” is Alan at his synthesizer best.

 

 

ACQUIRING THE TASTE

Band:GENTLE GIANT
Album:ACQUIRING THE TASTE
Label:TAPESTRY
Format:VINYL LP
Genre:Prog Rock

LIMITED VINYL REISSUE - ONE PRESSING OF X 500 ONLY!

The band's second album is a major advance on its first, featuring superior singing, playing, and songwriting, as well as a more unified sound, without sacrificing the element of surprise in the first record. Many of the melodies and even the riffs here (check out Gary Green's first guitar flourish on "Pantagruel's Nativity") have a pretty high haunt count, and all of the musicianship displays an elegance seldom heard even in progressive circles -- but the record also, amazingly enough, rocks really hard as well. Elements of hard rock and Gregorian chants mix freely and, amazingly enough, well throughout this album.
