The Prisoners

The Prisoners - In from the Cold

Reviewer: Amazon.com

For the best part of four years I arrogantly dismissed this LP as the Prisoners worst....how wrong I was. Listening to it today (indeed at least a couple of times a week still now) it is an extremely criminally overlooked album of musical excellence, albeit a little more "polished" than the other Prisoners LPs.
Hell there's nothing wrong with a bit of Mr. Sheen though and as soon as the brass of "All You Gotta Do Is Say" kicks in you know it's got soul. Check out the vocals on "Deceiving Eye", "The More That I Teach You", "I Know How To Please You" and you will hear one of the very best Soul/RnB singers (Ye Olde Style) this country has seen and heard since the late sixties.
Lots of nods to various Kent Comp LPs and Northern Soulesqueness are evident on a good few of the tracks but there still remains that underlying seedy side provided by the haunting Hammond and ivory experimentations of James Taylor. Listen to the kitchen sink self-scathing lyrics to "Mourn My Health" and ask yourself if you've never felt like that, or the "good riddance" cold heartedness of "Be On Your Way"...great stuff. There's even a Hendrix cover here which, contrary to being a "good ol' filler" is superbly carried off and sits delightfully with the rest of these class tunes...infact has anyone ever heard anyone else do a cover of "Ain't No Tellin'"? Don't think Stevie Ray tried that one did he? And if he had would it have been carried off with the same spirited aplomb? Who cares, this version's good enough.
With a few demos and B sides of equally sound quality tagged on the end of the CD along with the presentation and sleeve notes this is nothing less than a bargain as well as an aural treat to the lugholes. Invest and ingest, and you'll be greatly impressed..I kid you not.

The Chords

The Chords - So Far Away

Reviewer: Jo-Ann Greene, All Music Guide

In later years, the Chords were often cursorily dismissed as little more than Jam copyists, and while there's no denying that the two groups traveled in very similar musical waters, both drawing from the British beat and Northern soul that filled their youths and sending it soaring through the prism of punk, it's there that the comparisons end. While Paul Weller coyly played footsy with both the punk and mod scenes, refusing to commit to either, there was no doubt that his soul lay with the latter, and regardless of the trio's aggressive punk-fueled delivery, his lyrics lacked punk's burning fury. Regardless of the class warfare related in "Eton Rifles," the racism reflected in "Down in the Tube Station," or the alienation of "Strange Town," no matter his country's evident flaws (and Weller etched them vividly), he still couldn't shake his love of his homeland and optimistic hope that her problems would eventually be solved. Guitarist and songwriter Chris Pope refused to see the world through the Jam's English rose-colored glasses, turning his own equally eloquent pen to scathing vignettes virtually the flip of Weller's own. In this respect, the Jam comparisons are red herrings, for if anything, Pope played the snottier, rebellious younger brother to Weller's more respectful good son.
This was apparent from the start with the Chords' debut 45, "Now It's Gone," where the group's dream of love is trampled underfoot, and driven home by its follow-up, "Maybe Tomorrow," which firmly puts the boot into the Jam's sanguine vision of Britain and turns it into a fascist horror. That single would kick off the group's sole album, So Far Away, 12 fierce tracks that defined mod's potential as punk's successor. Filled with fire and fury, the set skips from affairs of the heart to the pitiful state of the nation. Musically it's a revelation; the band's two guitarists give the group much more scope for aural assault than a trio, and with a much more aggressive rhythm section in tow, Far is as vociferous as many of its punk contemporaries. In fact, reviews threw bands like the Buzzcocks and the Undertones into the brew of the Chords' notable inspirations. For while the Chords' melodies were shaped by the '60s, their delivery was forged in punk, with even Sham 69's anthemic stomp stirred into the mix. This set reissues the stellar Far, a U.K. Top 30 album, in full, then tacks on all five of the original lineup's singles along with its B-sides, as well as the free 45 that was included with early copies of the album. The bonus tracks are helpfully sequenced in chronological order, and a full discography and excellent biography complete this phenomenal package. Of course, the two-CD This Is What They Want album made this set redundant, but if your wallet doesn't stretch that far, this will easily suffice.

Relespública - As Histórias São Iguais

Reviewer: Wladimyr Cruz, Zona Punk.
(Edited by Mariana "Mary Bee" Bento)

Relespública could be the salvation to brazilian rock. And why not? In an age who pop-rock bands are called melody hardcore/emo and little prefabricated groups sings proto-revolted foolish in the disk MTV or something like that, listen to an honest rock'n'roll band seems like a gift, almost a salvation.
Mod to the bones, punk in the spirit and rock-as-fuck in the sound, "As Histórias São Iguais" is them second album to show how to do the rock. Nasi from IRA! sings "A Fumaça É Melhor Que O Ar" and "Boatos De Bar".
With fast chords and heavy drums, the album has love, frustration, rainy nights and energy, all a big mod album must have, and honestly, the better one just recorded by the band.

Blues Magoos - Psychedlic Lollipop (1966)

Reviewed by Gary (Auburn, California), from amazon.com

Wow, this is a great album! I bought this record while in high school, living in Hoyt Lakes, Minnesota, that's ranger country people. Nothing much to do there, except listen to music. This album had been out of print for many years until recently released on cd. I have depended on reel to reel tapes to keep from losing track of this fine group altogether.

The Blues Magoos sounded like no one else in 1966, fresh and heavy with new psychedelic sounds and great vocal harmonies. "We ain't got nothin'yet" went on to be a big hit for the Magoos, but "She's coming home", "Queen of my nights" and the best version ever of "Tobacco Road" are my favorites on their first and best lp. If you like Aorta, early Country Joe & the Fish, Clear Light, Fever Tree or the Seeds you need this fine cd in your collection. Peace & Rock on

Mod Fave Raves Vol.1

Reviewer: Thom Jurek, allmusic guide

Another in the endless line of Motown repackages done on the European side of the Atlantic, this one has some well-known cuts, as well as a few lesser-known — but not obscure — selections as well. Some of the better-known tracks, hits like Barrett Strong's "Money (That's What I Want), and the Contours' "First I Look at the Purse," and the Miracles "Going to a Go-Go," and Martha & the Vandellas' read of "Hitch Hike" have shown up on other comps, but never on an up-tempo groover like this one. These picks are juxtaposed against stuff that the collectors have had for years perhaps, but the rest of us missed, like Eddie Holland's vocal, piano and horn rave-up — based on Stevie Wonder's "Fingertips, Part 2" — "Leaving Here," and Earl Van Dyke's killer instrumental dance jams "6X6," that uses the Tijuana Brass M.O. and turns it inside out — and the finger-poppin' classic "All For You." And that's not even half of the stuff here. Solid.

Mod Fave Raves Vol.2

Reviewer: Thom Jurek, allmusic guide

This second — and long overdue, horribly-titled — volume in the Motown Mod Fave Raves series issued in Europe has more hits than the first set had, but other than Martha Reeves' "Heat Wave," Shorty Long's ubiquitous "Function at the Junction," the Miracles' "C'mon Do the Jerk," and the Temptations' "(I Know) I'm Losin' You," there are other cuts that don't make the compilation circuit often enough — Kim Weston's "Helpless," Earl Van Dyke's crushing groover "Soul Stomp," Chris Clark's "From Head to Toe," and Barbara McNair's "You're Gonna Love My Baby" are all welcome additions to the general selection. In all there are 20 cuts, and there's not a weak one in the bunch. Those who are looking for the more up-tempo side of the Motown sound will find this one satisfying.

The Action

The Action - ActionPacked

from allmusic.com

After the Beatles, the Action were the most impressive band signed to EMI by George Martin during the mid-'60s. That they never managed to chart a single in the space of two years with the label, even as lesser bands sold tens of thousands of records with seemingly no effort, is one of those great ironies of mid-'60s English rock & roll.

The band started out in North London during 1963 as quartet called the Boys, and cut one single as a backing band for Sandra Barry before getting their own shot at immortality on the Pye label with a single "It Ain't Fair." The Boys went out of existence in 1964, but didn't split up, instead reconfiguring themselves as a five-piece. The original lineup, Alan "Bam" King (guitar), Reg King (vocals), Mike Evans (bass), and Roger Powell (drums) added Pete Watson...

The Action - Rolled Gold

Reviewed by Jeffrey Jotz "You'll know him when you find him" (Rahway, NJ USA), from amazon.com

The earlier stuff by the Action -- who achieved notoriety through the support of Beatles' producer George Martin -- was your standard collection of guitar-driven, English mid-60s interpretations of American R&B tunes, but in 1968, the world was changing, and the Action changed along with it.

Like their contemporaties the Who and the Small Faces, the Action began to move away from traditional mod melodies like "I'll Keep Holding On" to more expansive pieces like "Come Around," "Brain" and "Strange Roads."

What results is not a full "mod" or "psychedelic" collection, but a fantastic collage of great British pop that can hold its own with the big stars of the era (Beatles, Kinks, etc). Each song gets better after each listen.

The songs on Rolled Gold were recorded as demos for an upcoming album but never released. Thankfully, they were remastered and repackaged as a CD with liner notes from band members and modern-day popsters like Matthew Sweet and Brent Rademaker of Beechwood Sparks.

In fact, listening to this disc immediately draws parallels to many indie pop icons of the present day, most notably Robert Pollard and his Guided by Voices. I don't even know if these artists intentionally drew their work from that of the Action's Rolled Gold days, but the parallels are striking.

Placing this CD in my player with the Kinks "Arthur" and the Beatles "Magical Mystery Tour" will complete your fun trip through edgy psychedelic pop of a time long gone.

The Yardbirds

The Yardbirds - BBC Sessions (1965-1968)

Reviewed by Patrick Earley (Edmond, Oklahoma USA), from amazon.com

I love live radio broadcast albums. And this is one of the best of the BBC series releases. It's got some memorable performances by both the Beck and the Page lineups from 1965-68. This is pretty much Jeff Beck's show though. He appears on 20 of these cuts and he just cooks on here. Especially on "Too Much Monkey Business", where his guitar playing is just ferocious! This had to be pretty shocking stuff at the time for those stiff lipped studio technitions to hear. I love all the old blues covers they were generous enough to put on here. Especially Bo Diddley's "I'm A Man". There's nothing quite like hearing the spelling out of M-A-N with an english accent. Also another great cover is Chester Burnett's "The Sun Is Shining" where Beck plays a mean sounding bottleneck slide. But their best material is their originals such as "For Your Love", "Heart Full of Soul", Shapes Of Things, and my favorite "Over Under Sideways Down". It's hard to believe most of these songs were from the 65-66 era. They were so far ahead of their time. The only thing that gives it away is when those cheesy disc jockeys start introducing the band before each song with "Groovy" and "Here's a Real Knockout Band". But this album is just like a Best Of from the Yardbirds. It's got all their good stuff that's played pretty close to their studio versions, but with a little Beck and Page pizzaz. And being in the BBC studios, the recordings are crystal clear, with none of that annoying hiss. So if you haven't got any Yardbirds cd's yet, this is as good a place as any to start. Excellent

The Seeds

The Seeds - Future (1967)

from amazon.com

The "A Thousand Shadows" 45 rpm from this album, Future, came in a pink sleeve decorated by gray four-leaf clovers and a negative picture of the Seeds next to a sign that says "Wishing Well - Help Us Grow." "A Thousand Shadows" is the melody as well as the feel of their Top 40 1967 hit "Pushin' Too Hard." Breaking no new ground, the band insisted on revisiting its formula, reinventing new versions of "Pushin' Too Hard" like "Flower Lady & Her Assistant." This is a sophisticated package with a gatefold which includes lyrics over pastel sunflowers as if the band was Joni Mitchell. Three colorful pages come inside the album, including two beautiful photos of the group along with single flowers representing the songs on the disc with instructions: "Cut out paste on whatever" for grade schoolers or those so strung out on LSD they have regressed to that point. "Six Dreams" is Black Sabbath's Ozzie meeting George Harrison in some biker film soundtrack with weird sound effects and a sitar. The harp on "Fallin'" underscores Saxon's passionate garage vocal. Imagine, if you will, Brian Jones during the recording of Satanic Majesties deciding to bare all the excesses of rock stardom. This album is a trip, not because it reflects the ideas captured in the Peter Fonda film of the same name, but because a band had the audacity to experiment with record company money and make something so noncommercial and playful. Droning organ sounds penetrate "Fallin'," the seven minute, 40 second final track. Saxon writes in the inner-sleeve essay "Originations of the Flower Generation" "...The farmer lives by the elements alone, the sun, the rain, and the earth, but the earth needs its seeds to sow the flower generation of the leaf...." It's heady stuff, and the melody and sound of "Pushin' Too Hard" permeates incessantly. Hardly a Future, as the title proclaims, this is actually the Sgt. Pepper of the flower-power set, a reinvention of past efforts, but no "Strawberry Fields" or "Day in the Life" to bring it out of its cult niche. Very listenable, highly entertaining, and totally not for the mass audience. GNP stands for Gene Norman Presents, and the label should be commended for allowing such creativity which inspired Iggy Pop and the Lyres' Mono Mann. Saxon played his game to the hilt, and that followers like Mono Mann and Jeff Connelly would get stuck in his groove is only testament to how original and enthralling these sounds are. Tunes like "Now a Man" are low-key Ventures riffs with naïve guitar and Saxon being as indulgent as humanly possible. Fans should also seek out a 45 on Expression records, "Beautiful Stars" by Sky Sunlight and Thee New Seeds featuring Rainbow. Despite its musical limitations, Future holds up quite well to repeated plays by sitting firmly in the past..

Decca (Repost)

The UK Beat Scene - (Various UK Beat 1963-66)

These 25 tracks have been culled from a host of mid-'60s artists on the U.K.-based Decca Records label as part of their critically and enthusiastically lauded "Decca Originals" series. Each thematic entry gathers hard-to-locate tunes by a variety of lesser-known acts. The Beat Scene (1998) concentrates on groups stylistically akin to the early- to mid- '60s British Invasion beat bands. However, unlike the Beatles, the Dave Clark Five, or any of their other internationally renowned contemporaries, many of the acts featured here had comparatively nominal, if any, success outside of Europe. In the case of the Poets — whose longing rocker "I Love Her Still" is found on this volume — they created music broad enough in scope to have covered the freakbeat and psychedelic subgenres as well. Almost by definition, one of the more obvious components of the Beat Scene is the hearty backbeat that drives the Game's "Gonna Get Me Someone," the Mockingbirds' "One by One," and Joe Cocker's seminal remake of the Fab Four's "I'll Cry Instead." The latter is a fascinating glimpse into Cocker's primordial sound, blending the essence of American rockabilly with a hint of skiffle tucked into the rhythm. Another notable name is Lulu, who takes the Luvvers through the Mick Jagger/Keith Richard composition "Surprise Surprise." Although pop music fans might remember the name Pete Best as the pre-Ringo Starr percussionist for the Beatles, he lends his name to a combo covering Eddie Hodges' "I'm Gonna Knock on Your Door," a one-off single circa 1964. Other Beat-era trademarks include compact arrangements, as displayed by the tight syncopation heard on Rick & Sandy's "Lost My Girl," the Warriors' "Don't Make Me Blue," and the Beat Chics' lively "Now I Know." A direct contrast is the Andrew Oldham Orchestra's faux Wall of Sound rendition of "Da Doo Run Run," with uncredited vocals from Mick Jagger. Parties interested in this edition should check out the other erstwhile installments: Mod Scene (1998) and Mod Scene, Vol. 2, Psychedelic Scene (1998), Rock N' Roll Scene (1998), and Blues Scene (1999).

The Zombies

The Zombies - Odessey and Oracle (1968)

from Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org)

Odessey and Oracle is a rock album by the Zombies released in 1968. The famous misspelling of "odyssey" in the title was the result of a mistake by the designer of the LP cover, Terry Quirk (who was the flatmate of bass player Chris White). The band, however, claims that the title was deliberate.

Odessey and Oracle was recorded in 1967 after the Zombies signed to the CBS label, and was only the second album they had released since 1965. As their first LP, Begin Here, was a collection of singles, Odessey can be regarded as the only true Zombies album.

The group began work on the album in June 1967. Some songs were recorded at EMI's Abbey Road Studios, where earlier in the year the Beatles had recorded Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. By the time the recording was finished, in late 1967, the Zombies were effectively disbanded, due to lack of financial success. Odessey and Oracle was released in the U.K. in April 1968 and in the United States in June. The single "Time of the Season" became a surprise hit in early 1969, and Columbia Records (in the United States) re-released Odessey in February, with a slightly different album cover.

Since its release the LP has come to be regarded as one of the greatest of all pop albums, with indelible melodies, complex harmonies, and an air of nostalgia and longing that makes it comparable to such albums as Love's Forever Changes and the Beach Boys' Pet Sounds.

In 2002, Rolling Stone placed Odessey in 80th place on their list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time[1].

The first song on the album, "Care of Cell 44" has been covered by such notable artists as Elliott Smith.

Byron Lee & The Dragonaires

Byron Lee & The Dragonaires - Great Jamaica Ska

Reviewer: Bruce Eder, All Music Guide.

Anyone who saw Byron Lee & the Dragonaires in Dr. No (playing in the scenes in Pussfeller's club) and wants to hear more music like it need look no further than this release. The 20 songs here comprise the contents of ten singles cut by Lee and his band between 1963 and 1966 at the subsequently legendary Dynamic Sounds studios in Kingston and at Atlantic studios in New York. The songs include such familiar fare as "007 (Shanty Town)" and "My Boy Lollipop" (and "Occupation," which bears a strong resemblance to Johnny Cash's "Ring of Fire"), and the vocalists include the Blues Busters, Yvonne Sterling, Patsy Todd, Eric "Monty" Morris, Ken Lazarus, Keith Lynn, and the Maytals, though Morris is the best of the featured singers. The sound is excellent and the variety of sounds runs the gamut from quasi-pop numbers to harder, edgier pieces such as "Sammy Dead."

1. Behold (Featuring The Blues Busters)
2. 007 (Shanty Town)
3. It's You
4. My Boy Lollipop
5. Easy Snaping (Featuring Monty Morris)
6. Worried Over You
7. Eastern Standart Time
8. 54-46, That's My Number
9. I've Got To Go Back Home
10. Wings Of A Dove (Featuring The Blues Busters))
11. Simmer Down
12. Carry Go Bring Come
13. Oh Carolina
14. Oil In My Lamp
15. Sammy Dead (Featuring Monty Morris)
16. Occupation
17. Tell Me Darling
18. Green Island
19. Jamaica Ska

Millie Small

Millie Small - My Boy Lollipop (Vinyl Rip)

Reviewer: Jo-Ann Greene

"She's Millie Small, vivacious, bubbling, singing sensation from the land of sunshine and calypso," the sleeve notes explain. Not that there was really any need for an introduction, for indeed the tiny, vivacious Jamaican singer had taken Britain by storm, launching the Blue Beat boom and rocketing ska into the U.K. chart with her debut U.K. single "My Boy Lollipop." An album was the obvious next step, and Small set about recording with all the excitement of a child set loose in a candy store. And, in a way, that's exactly what the 16-year-old was. Her exuberance positively bleeds from the grooves, you can just about hear her grinning. Across ten covers and two co-written numbers, Small belts out the songs, with the backing sessionmen blending in big band sounds all set to an insistent jumped-up beat. And that was what it was really all about. So whether she's covering Fats Domino's "I'm in Love Again," Neil Sedaka's "Since You've Been Gone," or the old folk song "Tom Hark," it's all ska, pure and simple, and the album never flags. Most of the songs are suitably fluffy, and generally about boys, of course, from "Blue Louey" to "Sweet William," and on to "Sugar Dandy," where Small reaches unimaginable heights of ecstatic shrillness. And while that shrill, adenoidal voice was charming on a single, it can become a little wearing across an entire album. However, the Blue Beat Girl, as she was known, is working so hard to make us like her -- it seems cruel to complain -- and for fans this was a sheer firecracker of a record.

1. My Boy Lollipop
2. Oh Henry
3. Sugar Dandy
4. Since You've Been Gone
5. He's Mine
6. What Am I Living For
7. Sweet William
8. Bluey Luey
9. Don't You Know
10. Tom Hark
11. Until You're Mine
12. I'm In Love Again

Children Of Nuggets

Children Of Nuggets - Original Artyfacts From The Second Psychedelic Era 1976-1995

Reviewer: Lydia Vanderloo, Amazon.com

Garage rock has occasionally bubbled up onto the pop charts -- from the Kingsmen's "Louie Louie" on through Nirvana and the White Stripes -- but the bulk of its creative output has always lurked below the surface. While Rhino's first two Nuggets box sets ably chronicled the subgenre's development in the mid- and late '60s, Children of Nuggets compiles the work of their creative offspring, likeminded groups from the '70s through the '90s (with an emphasis on the '80s). A few of the artists here were, at least briefly, household names -- the Bangles, the Hoodoo Gurus, the Smithereens, the Church -- but most trafficked in the seedy underground, receiving notice only from fanzines, record store regulars, and paisley-clad rock club denizens. Surprisingly, the 100 mix-tape favorites collected here represent a broad stylistic and geographic range. They include L.A.'s "paisley underground" (the Dream Syndicate's Neil Young–influenced "Tell Me When It's Over," the Rain Parade's kaleidoscopic "One Half Hour Ago"); the U.K.'s mid-'80s psych-rock heyday (Biff Bang Pow!'s Rickenbacker-fueled anthem "There Must Be a Better Life," the Dentists' sweetly melancholy "Strawberries Are Growing in My Garden," Primal Scream's lilting "Gentle Tuesday"); the Pacific Northwest (Screaming Trees' proto-grunge "Transfiguration," the Posies' angsty "I May Hate You Sometimes"); and the rich Australia/New Zealand axis (the Stems' downbeat power pop "Love Will Grow," the Chills' eerie, chiming "Pink Frost," Died Pretty's psychedelic, organ-propelled "Out of the Unknown"). Residing alongside are long-term garage enthusiasts, including the Dukes of Stratosphear (XTC's alter ego), Jeff Conolly's Lyres/DMZ, the Spongetones, Julian Cope, Billy Childish/Milkshakes, the Bevis Frond, and Teenage Fanclub. This passionately assembled four-disc set will give pause even to diehard garage fans; upon each listening, new nuggets are unearthed, whether the Nerves' effusive power-pop "One Way Ticket" or the Last's raw, swirling "She Don't Know Why I'm Here." The set's 100-page booklet includes essays by garage diehard Little Steven and Bucketful of Brains founder Nigel Cross, plus extensive liner notes from British scribe Kieron Tyler and an ode to the late Voxx/Bomp! mainman Greg Shaw, without whom, according to co-producer Gary Stewart, "the events covered in this set wouldn't have taken place." Amen.

Merton Parkas

Merton Parkas

The Merton Parkas, taking their name from their home in South London (Merton) and the classic mod-wear (the parka), are another footnote in the British mod revival of the late '70s (which itself was merely a footnote in music history). Formed by brothers Mick Talbot (keyboards) and Danny Talbot (vocals) along with Neil Wurrel (bass) and Simon Smith (drums) in 1978, they became one of the first third wave mod-revivalists to release an album, Face in the Crowd, which featured the hit single "You Need Wheels." While many of the movement's followers took a more serious approach, the Merton Parkas tapped into the novelty side of the genre, becoming something of a mod version of Madness, though less innovative (and less interesting). Mick Talbot later teamed up with Paul Weller to form the Style Council in 1983.
