Various - The Groups Of Beltone Records - The G...

zzgl. € 3.99 Versand

(Relic) 25 tracks - Les Cahan´s Beltone label was a fortuitous outgrowth of his Beltone Recording Studios, located at 4 West 31st Street in Manhattan. Cahan started his studio in 1947 and, at $20 per hour, in the fifties, offered a good deal to the street-smart independent label owners who frequently used his facility. Bobby Robinson with Red Robin and Fury, Al Silver of Herald-Ember, Ralph Perez of Ansonia, and a host of other R&B/Latin label toppers clamored for Beltone studio time in the fifties and sixties. Cahan, trained as an electrical engineer, and Iry Greenbaum, his chief assistant, perfected a natural echo in their big room with its plaster walls. According to Cahan, the recording room was about 15´ long, 8´ high, and 8´ wide, with a speaker at one end and a microphone at the other. The volume from the speaker and its interaction with the mike helped create the natural echo heard on many Beltone sessions. Beltone Studios was coasting along nicely in 1960 when Cahan was approached by A.J. Gabriel and Company, an investment firm. They helped him float a public stock offering which brought him $200,000 instant capital. What to do with his new found riches? Why not start a record company? Cahan hired Joe Rene for $150 a week to handle A&R duties, and Beltone Records was in business by the late fall of 1960. Their first release by Ritchie Adams didn´t make it, but Beltone #1002 was Bobby Lewis´s ´´Tossin´ and Turnin´,´´ recorded on December 27, 1960. According to Cahan, vet record man Jerry Shifrin persuaded Cahan and Rene to sign Bobby Lewis, arguing that Bobby´s ´´Mumbles´´ could have been a big hit had it not been slightly off-color for any concentrated airplay. ´´Tossin´ and Turnin´´ sailed to #1 on Billboard´s pop charts and Beltone was definitely in business.

Perry Como - The Living Legend (2-CD)
€ 19.95
Angebot
€ 9.95 *
zzgl. € 3.99 Versand

(1992/ARCADE) 40 tracks RCA Stereo. Pierino Como, born in Canonsburg, Pensilvania an May l8th 1912, initially making his living as a barber, was to become a living Legend simply by being himself. Perry started his singing career in 1933. He made his first record, as ´vocal refrain´, with the Ted Weems Band in 1936. The Legend really began in the midst of a musicians strike in 1943 when Perry made his first solo recording, ´Goodbye Sue´. This special Collection, in the year of Perry´s 80th Birthday, contains ALL his UK hits, plus songs forever associated with the Como relaxed style. ´DREAM ALONG WITH ME´ was the theme tune to Perry´s TV shows in the 1950´s. Fans have recently been able to wallow in the sheer nostalgia of it all with the release of video´s of those early shows. No one has ever been able to make the medium his own, quite like Perry. While the TV shows were watched by millions throughout the World Perry´s hits were mostly ´novelty´ songs. They are all here, ´ PAPA LOVES MAMBO´, ´HOT DIGGITTY´ and rarer titles like ´JUKE BOX BABY´ and ´GLENDORA´. Perry´s venture into Rock ´n´ Roll was most successful. Even today in Rock ´n´ Roll discos Perry´s ´LOVE MAKES THE WORLD GO ROUND´ and ´KEWPIE DOLL´ are frequently requested. ´IDLE GOSSIP´ makes it´s first appearance since its success in 1954 . The song spent 15 weeks in the UK charts and reached No.3. It has been one of the most sought after Como tracks since then, but mysteriously never re-released until this collection. Perry has always been a deeply private and religious man. Several of his recordings reflect this. In this collection we have his hits, ´I MAY NEVER PASS THIS WAY AGAIN´ and ´I BELIEVE´ - together with Perry´s own personal favourite recording ´AVE MARIA´. In 1967, in the midst of the 60´s Revolution, Perry scored a hit with a simple little tune about ´THE FATHER OF GIRLS´.The message of the song is for all generations of Father´s, and no one can sing it with more sincerity than Perry. His sell-out tour of the UK in 1975 was preceded by his predominance in the Charts. ´IT´S IMPOSSIBLE´ in 1971, and in 1973 ´AN I LOVE YOU SO´ and ´FOR THE GOOD TIMES´ spent no less than 48 weeks in the UK Charts. A record in itself. Perry´s last recording to date is also included in this collection. Made in 1987 ´THE WIND BENEATH MY WINGS´ has become a firm favourite an Perry´s Concert Circuit.

Jackie Wilson - Reet Petite (LP)
€ 17.95 *
zzgl. € 3.99 Versand

(Ace) 16 Titel - Brunswick Aufnahmen aus den Jahren 1957 bis 1963! Seltene ´Ace´ LP! Jackie Wilson, pioneer showman of the old rhythm and blues school, possessed the most acrobatic voice in black music. From sonorous full throated howls of passion to a growl this to gravel in a food blender, Wilson laced his powerfully expressive singing with polish, panache and mclismatic decoration on a heart-stopping scale. While awesome to hear, his virtuoso vocal technique never quite harnessed an intcmational reputation and British audiences paid comparatively scant attention to a twenty year career in which he accumulated over fifty U.S. chart entries including 14 Top Twenty hits. A wonderfully comprehensive artist, Wilson flew off in more directions than a wrongly addressed envelope: during the course of some thirty albums, he embraced blues, opera, soul, vaudeville, gospel, disco and cabaret banality. Whatever the mode — style or cliche — his high, mobile voice was always a thing of seminal majesty. Wilson left an indelible imprint upon a generation of superstars. Elvis Presley left the seclusion of his mansion to watch Wilson perform and Van Morrison placed his firm approbation on record. More recently, his material has been revived by Shakin´ Stevens, Dolly Parton and U.S. Soul Group, Clique. The template of Lionel Richic, Luther Vandross and Peabo Bryson, there arc those who believe Wilson´s memory outshines the brightest of contemporary soul singers. Born Jack Leroy Wilson in Detroit, Michigan on 9th June 1934, he experienced 2 disciplined but loving childhood. His working class, church-going parents encouraged religious singing but disapproved of their son´s early interest in boxing. He won the amateur welterweight Golden Gloves title in 1950 (having given a false age to qualify) but rarely referred to his short-lived professional career: as ´Sonny´ Wilson he won only two of his ten fights. In common with neighbourhood friends, including Levi Stubbs and Little Willie John, Wilson´s tastes turned towards popular music. At work, above the roar of the auto plant assembly line, he was heard to mimic Al Jolson and, somewhat later, Clyde McPhatter, lead singer with Billy Ward´s Dominoes, the first B&B group to place 2 record on Billboard´s Top Thirty. During his spare time, Wilson joined the Ever Ready Gospel Singers. He also sang with The Thrillers, 2 quartet containing Hank Ballard, another important link in the growth of church derived R& B. In 1951, Wilson recorded ´Danny Boy´ for Dizzy Gillespie´s Dee Gee Records and appeared at Detroit´s Paradise Theatre where Johnny Otis hosted a talent contest. Wilson didn´t win but Otis encouraged his ambitions. In fact, Otis wrote ´Every Bcat Of My Heart´ for Wilson; it was recorded instead by the Royals and, some years later, Gladys Knight. Billy Ward was equally impressed: he took Wilson´s telephone number and, within a year, Wilson joined the Dominoes for tours. He spoke of his two-year appren-ticeship in suitably humble terms:— ´I fell in love with Clyde´s voice: I watched him and listened´. The Soul-stirrers, Louis Jordan, Ira Tucker of the Dixie Hummingbirds, The Mills Brothers, Vaughn Monroe, Mario Lanza and the lnkspots were among Wilson´s other major influences but Al Jolson probably played the most vital role in shaping Wilson´s ideas. ´Jolson fathered rock ´n´ roll´ he would tell reporters, ´more so than Elvis.lt was Jolsonwho used to get on his knees and go into all sorts of contortions to put his song across´. Wilson was equally quick to acknowledge his debt to Billy Ward´s vocal coaching:— ´I learned just about everything I know from him. Breath control.. . and how to dance during one number and then come back and sing a ballad. That´s hard´. Wilson finally replaced McPhatter as lead singer with the Dominoes in 1953. This is not the place to skim through his 40 or so tracks with Ward´s highly influ-ential group — most arc neatly documented on a four volume archive swoop containing all the Dominoes´ records for Federal and King (Gusto/King 5005x —5008x). Although one of these reached the R&B charts (´Rags to Riches´ got to No. 3 in late 1953), Wilson first brushed the national Top thirty as lead singer on the group´s Dccca recording of ´St. Therese Of The Roses´ M 1956. Thus inspired, he left the Dominoes to pursue a solo career. Al Green, a famous theatrical agent who managed Johnnie Ray,Todd Rhodes and Lavern Baker, acquired Wilson´s management from Billy Ward and
