The Monkees

The Monkees - The Monkees (1966)

Size: 62 mB
Bitrate: 256 kB

From wikipedia.org

The Monkees is the first album by the band The Monkees. It was released in September 1966 by Colgems Records.

The Monkees' debut was the first of four consecutive US number one albums for the group, and it also topped the UK charts. Assembled by television producers Bob Rafelson and Bert Schneider to portray a Beatles-type pop band on a new series, the quartet recorded vocals only between rehearsals for the weekly show.

While subsequent albums would improve on its quality, largely due to the group's increased participation, The Monkees remains an appealing mix of pop songs and performances. Micky Dolenz delivers a rousing lead on the brisk "Last Train to Clarksville," a U.S. number-one single and one of several tunes written by veteran hitmakers Boyce and Hart, while Davy Jones handles the ballad "I Wanna Be Free." Michael Nesmith, the member with the most extensive musical background, sings lead on his own country-flavored compositions, "Papa Gene's Blues" and "Sweet Young Thing" (co-written with the legendary songwriting team Gerry Goffin and Carole King).

Though critics disparaged The Monkees as the "Pre-Fab Four," the TV show was a hit. The symbiotic relationship between the show and radio play enabled The Monkees to hold down the top-selling album slot for 13 weeks, eventually selling over 5 million copies.

The Sorrows

The Sorrows - Take a Heart (1965)

The Sorrows are considered perhaps to be the archetypal "Freakbeat" band. Formed in 1963 in Coventry, England, they released their first album "Take a Heart" in 1965 on the Piccadilly Records label which was a subsidiary of Pye Records. The Sorrows were at the time the hardest, most aggressive and contemporary R&B band of that time, although later this brand of music was eventually termed "Freakbeat". The Sorrows were so edgy and raw they simply made The Rolling Stones seem like easy listening music. Their hallmarks are boomy, raucous vocals, lightning fast guitar solos and frantic thudding drums. The musicianship is excellent yet the band failed to achieve too much success probably due to the fact that their brand of proto-punk rock and roll, was simply too ahead of its time.

The Who - 30 Years of Maximum R&B (BOX SET)

It's not that this is bad material (with some exceptions, like the horrible alternate "The Real Me" that should have stayed unreleased), just that there are a LOT of little mistakes and annoyances that really add up. One or two mistakes or annoyances would have been understandable and easy to ignore, but not when they keep happening over and over again. The constant seguing of the songs is by far the worst error. This technique only works well when the end of the first song and the beginning of the following one sound enough alike to phased in and out simultaneously. Many times there isn't even one single nanosecond of breathing space between songs. There are also a few songs which are a mix of studio and live versions, like "A Quick One" and "See Me, Feel Me." Other big errors are mislabelling "Sparks" (the live Woodstock version) as "Underture." They never did "Underture" live. The live "Bargain" on here is also shortened by about a minute; the full-length version of this particular live rendition is found on the rarities compilation 'Who's Missing,' which was released some years before this boxed set came along. There are also a number of errors in the booklet, like giving incorrect chart positions for some songs and reinforcing the common but incorrect belief that Keith Moon was born in 1947; he was born in 1946 but lied about his age so people would think he was younger.

Besides the constant seguing, the other most annoying thing on here is the inclusion of way too many songs from 'Sell Out,' a total of eight of the original thirteen. There's also too much material from 'Who's Next' and the original LAL. Giving more than three or four songs from each album is no longer just giving a little sample of each album represented, and it feels jarring hearing them all played out of order, with so many songs from those albums included. Maybe that's the reason why there were barely any songs from their sorely underrated Eighties catalogue, with only one song apiece from their final two studio albums and then the next two Eighties songs being really poorly representative of that period. They could have picked a better song from 'Who's Last,' as bland a live effort as it may be, in lieu of the live version of "Twist and Shout" they used, as well as a better song from the '89 triple-LP 'Join Together' over the endless live rendition of "I'm a Man." The final song, a '91 cover of the Elton John song "Saturday Night's Alright (For Fighting)," is fun and peppy, but could have been included somewhere else if it had to be included at all. That is not the track you use to close a boxed set with; it should have been so obvious that the final track should have been a blistering live version of "WGFA" or "SMFM"!

Still, the material included here is by and large great, along with some cute Keith skits done for the BBC, interviews, onstage dialogue, and studio conversations held before songs. There are also a lot of songs that were unreleased before this boxed set came along, though since then most of them have been released as bonus tracks on the CD remasters. And some of the songs are still hard to find on CD, are only on vinyl, or are hard to find altogether, whatever the format they're available on, like the irresistably cute ditty "Dogs," "Call Me Lightning," and the High Numbers-era material like "Here 'Tis" and "Zoot Suit"; before this, only the High Numbers song "I'm the Face" was available on an official release. It's too bad they couldn't have cut some of the superfluous songs to make room for more rarities, like "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" or some of the songs on the out-of-print 'Two's Missing.' Overall, the many mistakes and annoyances aren't enough to overlook the fact that it's still great material. I'm lucky I found a used copy of this, complete with the booklet, for only $35 in a used record store!

Small Faces

Smal Faces - Small Faces - IMMEDIATE (1967)

Bruce Eder, All Music Guide

Small Faces was the second LP of that name issued by the band in the space of a year, a fact that -- coupled with its release a year later in America in somewhat modified form as There Are But Four Small Faces -- has always confused fans of the group's work. This particular album was the Small Faces' Immediate Records debut, and caught the group in the transition from an R&B-based mod band into a psychedelic-oriented outfit. They were still finding their way along the trail from sweaty, soul-drenched James Brown- and Otis Redding-inspired covers and originals to flower-power trippiness, and the short running time and the relative lack of Steve Marriott lead vocals (Ronnie Lane is out front on three of the 14 numbers, in addition to the presence of an instrumental) reveal that they were still laboring to find a sound and a collective voice with which they were comfortable, amid other activities (lots of gigs plus playing on other artists' work as the unofficial Immediate Records house band). The short running time didn't prevent this from being a pretty imposing album, however, especially in its original British edition. "(Tell Me) Have You Ever Seen Me" would probably have been a single but for the fact that Steve Marriott and producer Andrew Oldham gave it away to a quartet of Small Faces admirers called the Apostolic Intervention -- no matter, for it made a strong album opener and a great lead-in to "Something I Want to Tell You" and the ballad "Feeling Lonely," which slides into the heavier-weight instrumental rocker "Happy Boys Happy," which showcases Ian McLagan's keyboards and Kenney Jones' drums. "My Way of Giving" was a superb soul shouter that could have been a B-side in the group's earlier phase, but the real treat is the bejeweled, soaring, spaced-out dream account of "Green Circles," with its beautiful lead piano and exquisitely spacy choruses, leading to a tough, crunchy-textured bridge and finale. Side two opened with "Become Like You," a trippy acoustic guitar-dominated psychedelic ballad, leading to the elegant opening strains of the punchy "Get Yourself Together" and the funny, Cockney-flavored "All Our Yesterdays," with its heavy brass and trumpet embellishment. "Talk to You" was another Marriott soul belter, and "Show Me the Way" was a superb harpsichord workout for McLagan, who got an even better break on "Up the Wooden Hills to Bedfordshire" amid Marriott's acoustic guitar strumming, all closing on the delightfully trippy, upbeat "Eddie's Dreaming" (which featured Georgie Fame's band supporting the quartet). Some of the music lacks the kind of polish that the group would bring to subsequent projects, but Small Faces was still a major leap forward for the group, as far in front of their 1966 album of the same name as, say, Rubber Soul was from Help! in the Beatles' output. Not everything on it worked perfectly, but as a complete LP it was one of the great psychedelic/freakbeat documents of its era, only eclipsed in their output by their next album, Ogden's Nut Gone Flake.

The Downliners Sect - Singles A's & B's

Definitive, yes -- both sides of all eight of their Columbia singles, both sides of their one Pye single, their 1965 The Sect Sing Sick Songs EP, their ultra-rare self-released Nite at Gt. Newport Street EP from early 1964, and demos of "Cadillac" and "Roll over Beethoven" from 1963 and 1964, respectively. Twenty-nine songs in all, spanning 1963-1967, many of which didn't make it onto the three albums they released during this period. Good? No, not really. As performers the Sect didn't only verge on inept, they were at times downright careless, as if they couldn't be bothered to polish things a bit in the studio. As (infrequent) songwriters, their talent was nearly nonexistent. It's hard to believe anyone thought most of these sides had any commercial potential, either in the band or at the record label; the material is largely lackluster, and not even especially well chosen (a few of the songs on their first and third LPs would have been much better bets). Highlights are the Newport EP, which at least finds them playing things a bit straight and passionate, with a ramshackle version of "Green Onions" and a good cut of Bo Diddley's "Nursery Rhymes"; the 1965 single "Bad Storm Coming" is a fairly moody number. That's a pretty low return on a band that enjoys a vociferous following among some collectors, although they were really a pedestrian British R&B band with a propensity toward parched humor and odd novelty tunes that hasn't aged well.

No folhetim eletrônico "O Crepúsculo", histórias reais são mostradas na forma de FOTONOVELAS. Com roteiros assinados por Fabz, estas não são FOTONOVELAS como antigamente, e sim animações em flash, com trilha sonora e efeitos. Uma nova maneira de se expressar e escrever histórias. Aqui os elementos vintage representam símbolos do passado frente a uma modernidade caótica, na qual o próprio projeto está inserido. Este site reflete o estilo de vida hipermoderna, um lugar onde tecnologia, nostalgia e paradigmas “demodês” dialogam e se confrontam.

The Prisoners

The Prisoners - Rare and Unissued

This album is a collection of live, promotional, and own-mix recordings which span the band's original seven years together. This being the case the sound quality of the album is often not at its best, but this only enhances the memories of the raw power of a live performance. For this reason, my personal favourite is the live recording of "Come To The Mushroom". As a sad old fan from the early days I have seen this done many a time and, even though during the track all semblance of a tune disappears at one point, you cannot help but appreciate the full-on simultaneous assault of wailing guitar and keyboards.

Ocean Colour Scene

Ocean Colour Scene - Songs From The Front Row

Don't get me wrong, OCS are a band in a great tradition. A tradition of solid musicianship, solid songwriting, and albums where all the tracks are nicely mixed together.

However, they also suffer from a fanatical devotion to Paul Weller, a few too many samey tunes, and a habit of doing dross ballads like "Beautiful Thing". I think the phrase "erggh" describes it pretty effectively.

Mind you, their tracks from their "Moseley Shoals" period still stand up well, as does the racey "Hundred Mile High City". These make it in fact a worthy purchase should you not own them all anyway.

As for the rest, "Profit In Peace" is possibly the worst attempt at a protest song ever written. "Travellers Tune" and "Better Day", both album-mates of "Hundred Mile.." stand up OK, but are not really staggeringly good songs.

In conclusion, if you like Ocean Colour Scene, and own none of their records, buy it, as it contains less filler than any of their atrocious albums. If you own any albums, think carefully.

Oh, and bonus points for not putting any songs from your first album on (strong candidate for worst album ever). Mind you, that would be taking the mickey!

Spencer Davis Group

Spencer Davis Group - Eight Gigs a Week: The Steve Winwood Years (1964-1966)

Reviewer: J. E FELL "boogaloojef" from Amazon.com

This 2 cd anthology contains the complete Stevie Winwood recordings with the Spencer Davis Group. It also adds a couple of unreleased live tracks and some rare non-lp b-sides. The Spencer Davis Group was one of the best R&B groups of the British Invasion. Winwood's tenure in this group is overshadowed by his work in Traffic, Blind Faith and his solo career. But his talent is present even in these early recordings. Most feature his soulful vocals, his impressive organ playing and underrated guitar work. The contains his two biggest hits with the band "Gimme Some Lovin'" and "I'm A Man". The band at this point was tight and played with real energy and feeling. This set contains many cover tunes like "Dimples", "Watch Your Step", and "Every Little Bit Hurts" which are energetic versions. These are contrasted with some burning slow blues and ballads like "I'll Drown In My Own Tears" or "When A Man Loves A Woman". It also contains more jam oriented material like "Stevie's Groove", "Stevie's Blues" and "Blues In F" which highlight the bands instrumental prowess. The latter tracks were sort of precursors to his great work in Traffic. Other notable cuts include singles like "Keep On Running", "Somebody Help Me", and "When I Come Home". This compilation is a welcome addition for fans of Steve Winwood or the British Invasion, and Hammond organ aficionados. Don't let the price deter you from purchasing this anthology, it is well worth the money to have all Winwood's tracks together on one set.formatiom?

The Creation

The Creation - Complete Collection, Vol. 1: Making Time

The first volume of the Creation's two-disc retrospective confirms that producer Shel Talmy's extravagant claims on the band's behalf weren't just hot air.
On singles like "Making Time" and "How Does It Feel" they melted Mod-era r&b in an acid bath of nascent psychedelia that had been heated to a boiling point by the group's scorching instrumental attack. Eddie Phillips' bowed guitar excursions gave their earlier records a distinctive texture, and his barely controlled feedback contributed hugely to their uninhibited vibe, but his replacements kept the fire stoked on later releases. Founding vocalist Pickett spat out his snide, rebellious lyrics with a nasal punky whine, while his successor Garner delivered convincingly soulful turns on the epic "If I Stay Too Long."

The Move

The Move - The BBC Sessions [LIVE] (1967-1968)

Reviewer: Henry R. Kujawa from Amazon.com

As a MOVE fan starved for any "new" material, the release of this-- an entire album of previously-unreleased recordings-- was a JOY! It was the habit of the BBC to have bands record exclusive versions of songs just for airplay (the equivalent of appearing live on Letterman, I guess). While some BBC records show the limitations of their studio-- THIS isn't one of them! Starting with "You Better Believe Me" (perhaps the only song from their formative "R&B" phase, before the onset of the psychedelic era a few months later) the songs are a mix of Move tunes & covers of other bands' songs. Many of these are a revelation, as songs like "Night Of Fear" and "I Can Hear The Grass Grow", stripped of the overdubbed studio strings, are MORE powerful than the "regular" versions! It's one highlight after another here: "Walk On The Water", "Morning Dew" (also covered, perhaps better, by Episode Six), "It'll Be Me" (giving Jerry Lee Lewis a run for his money), "Kentucky Woman", "Higher And Higher", "Long Black Veil" (referenced in the lyrics of "Do Ya"), "Piece Of My Heart", "Going Back", "California Girls", and "The Christian Life". TREMENDOUS! (I have an earlier version of this CD titled BLACK COUNTRY ROCK with one extra song, "Sounds Of Silence"; I suspect it was left off here for its poor sound quality-- not that it ever bothered ME!)
