STEVE GIBSON Big Game Hunter/ Why Don't You Love Me (Jukebox Jam JBJ1049)Risque R&B from the well-traveled bandleader Steve Gibson. Over a catchy but minimal, syncopated and snappy drum, bass and guitar and piano backing, the baritone vocal runs through various double entendres with a hunting theme as backing vocal group the Red Caps egg him along. He's a big game hunter, with a big game hunter's gun... You get the picture... And if not, Gibson's wife Damita Jo LeBlanc joins the party as the song fades, 'Great Big ol' game hunter' she purrs. Just how did they get away with this kind of thing back in '53?!? 7" 6,90

GO DEVIL GO! (Jerome Records) Cool Gospel compilation with a range from hypnotic mid-tempo primitive rural blues to chaotic, raw R&B workouts.

Most of the recordings included here were published in 45's or 78's for less known independent companies, some by tiny local labels and sometimes paid by the church congregation itself.

GRAN'MAS I'VE NEVER HAD Precious Bryant vs Algia Mae Hinton (Moi J'Connais) Description by label: In front of an age-old trailer, or under the porch of a broken-down home, sit two weatherworn ladies. Guitar in hand, they sing their songs of wonder, distilling years of struggle into blissful and blithe melodies. And still their dry-but-mellow voices dance into the world...Precious Bryant (4 January 1942 - ) and Algia Mae Hinton (29 August 1929 - ) have wandered through the century, singing lullabies to their children and grandchildren. Real, timeless, their music has travelled across the Atlantic, meandered between the Piedmont and the Blue Ridge Mountains, and settled into a style of fingerpicking a little reminiscent of Mississippi John Hurt, Jimmy Rodgers, or their buddy Elisabeth Cotton - of this particular sound that travelled all the way from Europe and collided with Africa. Deep in the rubble of a forgotten South West, far away from the Mississippi, both river and State, the two fine fingerstyle guitarists play, evoking the tingle of rain on sheet metal. Gentle and unobtrusive, unaffected by a halfcentury of changes, they have salvaged the precious and youthful feel of the timeless blues: an enthralling and beautiful sound, distinctly feminine, with major chords and melancholy textures. Their more recent recordings have earned them some measure of success, and a few nominations and awards, and what you have here is a selection of works from both grandmothers - as a tribute to the "granmas Ive never had". Precious Bryant was born in Talbot County, Georgia, in 1942. She was raised in a family of music-makers, in a village packed with stomping blues and spirituals. She soon developed her own inspired style of blues, away from the mainstream, with only her voice and her guitar. In the 1990s, she played the Newport Folk Festival as well as a few concerts in Europe - but mostly she stuck to Georgia and the surrounding areas. In 1967, she walked into a studio for the first time to record with Georges Mitchell. Three wonderful songs still remain from those sessions. Her music is simple, yet inspired, and speaks of daily struggles. Precious Bryant is one of the last living great blues women from the 20th century - and still living in her mobile-home in the deep woods of Georgia. Algia Mae Hinton was born in Johnston County, North Carolina, on 29th August 1929, in a family of farmers. She was the youngest of 14 and was soon put to work in the fields. At the age of 9 already, her mother taught her the guitar. In 1965, after her husbands death, she was left alone to raise her 7 children. Despite those circumstances, Algia still managed to impose the musical arts in her household and to pass them on to her children. Music provided the family and the whole community with crucial solace throughout their trials and tribulations. Algia Mae plays the 6-string guitar, the 12-string and the banjo. She's also an accomplished singer and a fantastic Buck dancer. LP 17.50

JESSIE MAE HEMPHILL Best Of Her Early Works (Moi J'Connais Records) Jessie Mae Hemphill (October 18, 1923 - July 22, 2006) was born in a well-known musical family of the Delta; her great-grandfather (Dock Hemphill) was a renowned fiddle player in Choctaw County, Mississippi. Her grandfather (Sid Hemphill) was also a fiddle player and bandleader who recorded for Alan Lomax and George Mitchell. Members of the older generation of Hemphills, in a way anticipating Jessie Mae's own musical career, were multi-instrumentalists. Jessie Mae played guitar and drums, wrote and sang her own songs in the primal northern Mississippi hill country blues traditions. She was considered as the Queen of the Guitar Boogie. As one of the earliest successful female blues musicians, Hemphill has been an influential and pioneering artist. Limited 180gr Lp with silk-screen printed cover.

Crypt is proud to present "God's God It" - the VINYL release of the stunning Reverend Charlie Jackson retrospective released in 2003 on CD by the CaseQuarter label.

Two special features are one very rare song from his own Jackson label which feature the wonderful vocals of Laura “Tiny B” Davis, as well as the recently discovered (in March 2003 !) Booker single “The Goodness Of God”, that had seemingly been forever lost. “God’s God It” comprises 13 songs plus photos, color label scans, and extensive liner notes covering Reverend Jackson’s life and (still active!) career. There will only be 1000 copies available, so MOVE FAST or cry later! TRACK LISTING: "Morning Train/ Wrapped Up and Tangled Up in Jesus/ Trouble in My Way/I Shall Not Be Moved/God’s Got It/ Fix It Jesus/ I Gave Up All I Had/ What a Time/ Testimony of Rev.

Rev. Charlie Jackson (1932-2006) was a distinctly powerful guitar evangelist who devoted his life to singing and preaching the gospel, particularly throughout Louisiana and Mississippi. His 45s for the Booker and Jackson labels, with songs such as "God's Got It" and "Wrapped Up Tangled Up in Jesus," are frequently cited as a pinnacle of raw, impassioned, bluesy gospel music. Tracks: What A Time/ Morning Train/ Call Him By His Name/ I Read My Letter All Night/ Somewhere To Lay My Head/ May The Work I've Done Speak For Me/ Serving The Lord/ You Got To Move/ When I've Done The Best I Can, I Want My Crown. LP 19.90
REVEREND CHARLIE JACKSON Lord You're So Good: Live Recordings, Vol. 2 (50 Miles of Elbow Room) “Lord You’re So Good” is the second volume in an ongoing retrospective of Rev. Charlie Jackson (1932-2006), one of the all-time great gospel guitarists. This collection continues to draw from Rev. Jackson’s extensive archive of private recordings that were usually made live-in-the-church on a portable cassette recorder as he traveled throughout Louisiana and Mississippi from ~1970-2000. Whenever there was an opportunity to join in and praise the Lord, Rev. Jackson was eager to be involved. In addition to performing his own songs, he served as a guitar accompanist to a wide range of solo singers, quartets, and bands. He would also sometimes provide a musical background to sermons and testimonies, accenting and punctuating them at key moments. Even when not performing, he could often be found close to the action, shouting encouragement. The church services at which these collaborations often took place offered structured yet impromptu circumstances where Rev. Jackson needed to be prepared to spontaneously follow and respond to vocalists, congregations, and even members of his own groups. When introducing a singer, Rev. Jackson would sometimes note that he didn’t know what song was forthcoming, and occasionally mention afterward that the selection was a complete surprise, one that they hadn’t done before. At the same time, since he was a frequent visitor to many churches in Louisiana and Mississippi, Rev. Jackson also developed a rapport with some singers who had favorite songs that they would revisit at many different services. Regardless of the situation, Rev. Jackson was an enthusiastic, inspiring, supportive collaborator, who gave the same degree of commitment when an accompanist as he did when he was a leader or soloist. Heartfelt praise of God, rather than personal glory, was the goal. And, as his widow Laura Jackson has said, they also had good Holy Ghost times."Lord You're So Good" includes several collaborations with these outstanding and as-yet-unidentified singers, as well as what appears to be a previously unreleased solo studio recording, taken from a tattered, once-unplayable 8-track tape.

Gone forever was the soul diva and legend, the peerless and seemingly indomitable, screaming, bawling R&B siren who had seen off several near death experiences with dangerous substances and even more dangerous men. As the music world mourned, the question still remained - did Etta really receive her dues during her life? That recent interest in her career probably peeked when portrayed onscreen by a certain Beyonce Knowles in the Chess biopic 'Cadillac Records' would suggest the answer is no.This short and sweet set of six songs spread across three 45rpm records captures various key snapshots and key moments in Etta's early career. We hear the precocious, sassy teenaged delinquent on 'That's All', the snarling rock and roll mama on 'Tough Lover' and we revisit her 'coming of age' moment, the song that came to spark her adult career into a new direction and lifespan and became her signature: 'At Last'. Tracklist: Seven Day Fool/ Something's Got a Hold on Me/ Spoonful/ It's a Crying Shame Feat. Harvey Fuqua/ At Last/ I Just Want to Make Love to You. Triple 7" 22.90

JUKEBOX JAM Volume 2 (Jazzman) The original Jukebox Jam Blues & Rhythm Revue compilation album was released in September 2011, a collection which brought together the dynamic and varied R&B sounds of Liam Large's London based club night and reissue label. With an action-packed, all-killer set, it quickly became an instant classic, a comp of vintage sounds which truly stood out in an ever-saturated market. Two years on, and we are proud to unleash the second volume of Jukebox Jam, another collection of 23 obscure masterpieces from mid-century America. Perhaps even more ambitious than Vol 1, the follow-up broadens the scope of investigation by digging both deeper back into the 1940s - with a couple of jazzy blues numbers, and further into the 1960s - with gritty rock and roll and early Detroit soul both featuring prominently. In between these sounds, there's of course a healthy fill of dirty '50s blues, jumping R&B and swinging popcorn, but it's safe to say that on this set, the surprises come a little more frequently. We're very confident that Jukebox Jam Vol. 2 is another essential classic in waiting. Super deluxe double LP gatefold with US-style pasteback sleeve. Extensive liner notes with detailed info and artist pics! TRACKS: Mamie Perry - Lament/ Billy Hamlin - If You Ain't Got No Bread/ Young Jessie - Mary Lou/ Johnny West - Tears Baby/ Gil Bernal - King Solomon's Blues/ Dewey Guy - Rock a While/ Brother Woodman's Combo - Hot Mamma/ Betty James - Henry Lee/ Amos Milburn - I Done Done It/ Dave Bartholomew - Cat Music/ Saunders King - Swingin/ Steve Gibson - Big Game Hunter/ Big Sis Andrews - That Ain't the Way to Do It/ Buddy Johnson - If I Ever Find You/ The Mark VI - Cleo/ Barrett Strong - Misery/ Mary Ann Fisher - Put On My Shoes/ The Originals - Little Lonely Girl/ Billy Emerson - I'll Get You, Too/ Untouchables - Crawlin/ Grainger Hunt - Noah/ Bob Marriot - I'll Walk a Mile/ Little Willie John - It Only Hurts a Little While. Double LP 23.90 / CD 13.50

JUKEBOX MAMBO (Jukebox Jam) A stunning collection that sheds light on a pivotal yet totally overlooked area of American music – the influence of Afro-Cuban and Latin rhythms on R&B and Jazz during the mid-20th century. Following up on the success of our ‘Jukebox Jam’ album of vintage juke joint and bar room sounds, compiler and DJ Liam Large digs even deeper to put together a diverse set of dynamite R&B sides, all built around Afro-Cuban, Latin and Caribbean rhythms. The Blues and it’s populist sister Rhythm & Blues have been visited and revisited 100s of times on 1000s of comps, but the ‘Spanish Tinge’ has been completely overlooked, perhaps even scorned by purists. This album stands out from the rest and the result is a set which sounds stunningly fresh and unique – a remarkable achievement itself given that the actual songs average at around 60 years old.‘Jukebox Mambo’ showcases an experimental era which continues to inform today’s music, with Afro-Latin rhythms now completely assimilated into modern pop. The overtly sensual, exotic feel of many of these songs also continues to find an echo in modern music, and Jukebox Mambo provides a thrilling, sensual listening experience. Also included are detailed, illustrated liner notes which unveil the largely untold story of how Afro-Latin influences gradually affected Black American music during the 20th century, and in turn how this filtered into and transformed modern music thereafter. 22 tracks: Joe Lutcher - Ojai/ 2. Mable Scott - Fool Burro/ Red Callender Sextet - Voodoo/ Percy Mayfield - Louisiana/ Larry Dale - Down In The Bottom/ Dave Bartholomew - Shrimp & Gumbo/ Danny Cobb - My Isabella/ Marvin Phillips - Salty Dog/ Fay Simmons - Big Joe Mambo/ Gerald Wilson - Mambo Mexicana/ Mad Man Jones - Snake Charmer/ Lalo Guererro - Los Chucos Suaves/ Sultans - Boppin’ With The Mambo/ Alfredito - Honeydripper Mambo/ Annisteen Allen - Take A Chance On Me/ Gloria Irving - I Need A Man/ Billy Red Love - A Dream/ Faye Adams - The Hammer/ Elena Madera - Pu-Chun-Ga/ Cozy Cole - Cozy & Bossa/ Camille Howard - Shrinking Up Fast/ Joe Loco - Why Don’t You Do Right.

JUKEBOX MAMBO 10 inch Screen Print EP (Jukebox Jam BJ.10.002) Brother Woodman / Joe Houston / Chuck Higgins / Al Smith / Ernie Flields Combo: In anticipation of 'Jukebox Mambo' - the forthcoming compilation of wild Latin Rumba Rhythm & Blues, we've culled 5 tracks from Jake Porter's legendary LA indie label Combo - 2 of which have never been available on vinyl before, having been unissued back in the 50s. All 5 tracks have that Latin feel which under-pinned so many hot R&B sides through the mid-‘50s as the Mambo Craze reached feverish heights. Vocal group The Chanters' 'Hot Mamma' boasts an awesome vocal turn from Ethel Brown - who plays the sultry sexual predator as she warns her fellow womenfolk 'If you wanna keep your man - keep him outta my way!', over a cool rumba-edged riff on the Hound Dog riff. Joe Porters 'Cha Cha All Nite Long' reworks his own earlier hit for the Latin set. On the flip side, Chuck Higgins top instro 'Blues N Mambo' is all rolling drums and honking horns whilst we also feature a previously unreleased take of Jack McVea's wild group number 'Chop Chop Boom' and end the set with the unissued 'T-Town Mambo', a jazzy female vocal piece with a sweet Latin seasoning. 10" 12.90

This album, his first long player, appeared in 1960 and compiles many of those classic '50s sides. Slim was often accompanied by his brother-in-law, Slim Harpo, on the harmonica, along with a full, rollicking rhythm section heavily influenced by the R&B coming out of NOLA at the time. LP 13.50

LITTLE WILLIE JOHN The King Sessions 1958 - 1959 (Mr Suit) During the period covered by this compilation, Little Willie John was moving into more orchestrated, pop-oriented material and arrangements than he'd used on his initial mid-'50s R&B hit singles for the King label. The change wasn't at all for the worse; he still put a lot of bluesy feeling into this form of blues-R&B-pop-rock & roll, getting his two biggest pop hits with 'Talk to Me, Talk to Me' and 'Spasms'. Though, it's not all orchestrated R&B-pop here, by any means: there are pretty hot jump blues, ballads, and more straightforward rock & roll on 'Leave My Kitten Alone,' which would be covered by the Beatles in 1964. Side A: 1. Talk To Me, Talk To Me 2. Spasms 3. You're A Sweetheart 4. Let's Rock While The Rockin's Good 5. Tell It Like It Is 6. Don't Be Ashamed To Call My Name 7. Why Don't You Haul Off And Love Me 8. All My Love Belongs To You. Side B: 9. I'll Carry Your Love Wherever You Go 10. No Regrets 11. Made For Me 12. No More In Life 13. Leave My Kitten Alone 14. Let Nobody Love You 15. Let Them Talk 16. Right There 17. My Love - Is. LP 13.50

LLOYD PRICE The Exciting Lloyd Price (Rumble Records) Born in Kenner, Louisiana and growing up in the suburbs of New Orleans, Lloyd Price knew massive success very early when Art Rupe of Specialty Records visited New Orleans searching for new talents and heard his 'Lawdy Miss Clawdy' and wanted to record it. Price had no band back then, so Rupe hired Dave Bartholomew and his band (which included Fats Domino on piano!) to back Price up in the session. The resulting single was a total chart-smasher and it took a long long time for poor Looyd to equal such an achievement. In 1954 he was drafted and ended up in Korea, when he returned not only he found that he had been misplaced by Little Richard, but his precious chaffeur, Larry Williams, also became a Specialty recording artist. But between 1957 and 1959, first under his own KRC records and then after he signed to ABC-Paramount, Price recorded a series of national hits most of which ended up on his 1959 debut album. SIDE A: 1. Stagger Lee 2. I Wish Your Picture Was You 3. Talking About Love 4. What Do You Do To My Heart? 5. You Need Love 6. Mailman Blues. SIDE B: 1. Where Were You (On Our Wedding Day) 2. Why? 3.

PROFESSOR LONGHAIR Mardi Gras In New Orleans (Rumble) Fusing diverse elements of blues, barrelhouse boogie-woogie, funk, and gospel, with mambo, rhumba, and second-line street parade rhythms, Professor Longhair's contribution to today's musical vocabulary is immeasurable.

This compilation of B-sides, rarities and alternate takes, recorded between 1949 and 1957, honours one of the great and unique talents in rock and roll history. SIDE A: 1. Oh Well 2.

PROFESSOR LONGHAIR Rockin' With Fess (Rumble) Often credited as the father of New Orleans Rhythm & Blues, Professor Longhair is considered one of the most characteristic piano talents to come out of Louisiana. His hybrid "rumba-boogie" piano style, with a heavy, pounding left hand, forever changed the sound of rhythm and blues piano. In the words of Dr. John himself: "All New Orleans pianists today owe Fess. He was the guru, godfather, and spiritual doctor of all that came under him". Rockin' With Fess gathers most of his standards and classics (originally issued on singles for labels such as Atlantic, Mercury and Federal) including 'Tipitina', 'Baby Let Me Hold Your Hand', 'Mardi Gras In New Orleans' and more gems of New Orleans popular culture. SIDE A: 1. Rockin' With Fess 2. In The Night 3. Look What You're Doin' To Me 4. No Buts, No Maybes 5. Looka No Hair 6. Ball The Wall 7. Tipitina. SIDE B: 1. Between The Night And Day 2. Misery 3.

REVEREND CHARLIE JACKSON God's Got It! 180-gram LP (Crypt-094) of RAW 1970s gospel greatness! TRACK LISTING:"Morning Train/Wrapped Up and Tangled Up in Jesus/ Trouble in My Way/I Shall Not Be Moved/God’s Got It Fix It Jesus/I Gave Up All I Had/What a Time/ Testimony of Rev. Charlie Jackson/Something To Think About/My Eternal Home/ The Goodness of God Pt 2/I Am Thinking Of A Friend" Crypt is proud to present "God's God It" - the VINYL release of the stunning Reverend Charlie Jackson retrospective released in 2003 on CD by the CaseQuarter label. After the better part of twenty-five years, the legendary early 1970s New Orleans Booker label and mid 1970s Jackson label recordings of the Baton Rouge gospel guitarist have finally been collected on the beloved and downtrodden LP format. Ever since Reverend Jackson’s Booker singles were discovered by gospel collectors in the 1970s and began to trickle out to a wider audience, his primal, funky guitar riffs have astounded listeners. Raw and unadorned and at other times spare and lyrical, these recordings are infused with sanctified energy and singing. Two special features are one very rare song from his own Jackson label which feature the wonderful vocals of Laura “Tiny B” Davis, as well as the recently discovered (in March 2003 !) Booker single “The Goodness Of God”, that had seemingly been forever lost. “God’s God It” comprises 13 songs plus photos, color label scans, and extensive liner notes covering Reverend Jackson’s life and (still active!) career. There will only be 1000 copies available, so MOVE FAST or cry later! LP 13.00 (180 gram) CD 15.30
REVEREND CHARLIE JACKSON You Got to Move: Live Recordings, Vol. 1 (50 Miles of Elbow Room) This is the first pressing of 550 copies on high quality RTI-pressed vinyl in beautiful old school "tip-on" Stoughton sleeves and comes with 8-page 9"x9" insert with extensive biographical notes. Rev. Charlie Jackson (1932-2006) was a distinctly powerful guitar evangelist who devoted his life to singing and preaching the gospel, particularly throughout Louisiana and Mississippi. His 45s for the Booker and Jackson labels, with songs such as "God's Got It" and "Wrapped Up Tangled Up in Jesus," are frequently cited as a pinnacle of raw, impassioned, bluesy gospel music. Tracks: What A Time/ Morning Train/ Call Him By His Name/ I Read My Letter All Night/ Somewhere To Lay My Head/ May The Work I've Done Speak For Me/ Serving The Lord/ You Got To Move/ When I've Done The Best I Can, I Want My Crown. LP 19.90
REVEREND CHARLIE JACKSON Lord You're So Good: Live Recordings, Vol. 2 (50 Miles of Elbow Room) “Lord You’re So Good” is the second volume in an ongoing retrospective of Rev. Charlie Jackson (1932-2006), one of the all-time great gospel guitarists. This collection continues to draw from Rev. Jackson’s extensive archive of private recordings that were usually made live-in-the-church on a portable cassette recorder as he traveled throughout Louisiana and Mississippi from ~1970-2000. Whenever there was an opportunity to join in and praise the Lord, Rev. Jackson was eager to be involved. In addition to performing his own songs, he served as a guitar accompanist to a wide range of solo singers, quartets, and bands. He would also sometimes provide a musical background to sermons and testimonies, accenting and punctuating them at key moments. Even when not performing, he could often be found close to the action, shouting encouragement. The church services at which these collaborations often took place offered structured yet impromptu circumstances where Rev. Jackson needed to be prepared to spontaneously follow and respond to vocalists, congregations, and even members of his own groups. When introducing a singer, Rev. Jackson would sometimes note that he didn’t know what song was forthcoming, and occasionally mention afterward that the selection was a complete surprise, one that they hadn’t done before. At the same time, since he was a frequent visitor to many churches in Louisiana and Mississippi, Rev. Jackson also developed a rapport with some singers who had favorite songs that they would revisit at many different services. Regardless of the situation, Rev. Jackson was an enthusiastic, inspiring, supportive collaborator, who gave the same degree of commitment when an accompanist as he did when he was a leader or soloist. Heartfelt praise of God, rather than personal glory, was the goal. And, as his widow Laura Jackson has said, they also had good Holy Ghost times."Lord You're So Good" includes several collaborations with these outstanding and as-yet-unidentified singers, as well as what appears to be a previously unreleased solo studio recording, taken from a tattered, once-unplayable 8-track tape.

SCREAMIN' JAY HAWKINS I Put a Spell on You/ Put a Spell on You (unissued track) (All Hallows) 2 versions, both unissued at the time of their recording and completely new to vinyl. The top side features an alternate take from the same Okeh session which yielded the classic version everyone knows and loves... but this take is subtly different, with a sleazier sax solo and crazier yelps, barks and all round gibbering from the main man. On the flip, is the first instance of the song that Jay ever put down, recorded for the small Philly based independent Grand, and it's very different - the famous stabbing horn pattern is here provided by a waltzing piano, with slinky guitars replacing the dirty saxophone and a more morose vocal performance from Hawkins. repro 7" 6.90

SCREAMING GOSPEL HOLY ROLLERS Hop Skip And Jump (Veetone) Following the success of Vee-Tone Records CD releases “Screaming Gospel Holy Rollers” Vols. 1 & 2 here are a further 18 screamin’ and hollerin’ black Gospel recordings compiled by Radio DJ and TV presenter Mark Lamarr presented in a deluxe 180g vinyl format. “Screaming Gospel Holy Rollers - Hop, Skip And Jump” focuses on the greatest era of Black Gospel music, the 50s and early 60s. As the title implies, this release contains some of the wildest Black Gospel ever recorded, the torrid opening track “I Wanna Be Ready” by The Rev. H.B. Crum And The Mighty Golden Keys pretty much sets the tone for the entire album. What makes this album very special is that it focuses on the “wild side” of Black Gospel, which is but a stone’s throw from Soul & Rock n Roll at its wildest and best. If you’re looking for silky smooth Gospel this definitely isn’t the album for you! Featuring record labels including Savoy, Gospel, Peacock, Checker, Sue etc. this beautifully presented Limited Edition (only 500 pressed), 180g, 12” vinyl album includes sleeve notes by Mark Lamarr along with detailed session information. The influence of Black Gospel music on Rock n Roll cannot be underestimated and this album clearly demonstrates the cross over between non secular and secular music in the 50s & 60s.

BIG JOE TURNER Rocks (Bear Family) 28 track CD with comprehensive booklet. Big Joe Turner first shouted timeless blues couplets in the Kansas City of the '30s, partnering stomping pianist, Pete Johnson, for almost two decades. Together they ignited the boogie-woogie craze that led to the post-war emergence of R&B and ultimately, the revolution that was rock 'n' roll. This set, compiled by Trevor Cajiao, Editor of 'Now Dig This,' embraces all phases of Joe's career but concentrates on the hard-rocking records which made Joe a rock 'n' roll star and unlikely teen idol at the age of 43. Discs like 'Honey Hush', 'Shake, Rattle And Roll' (bowdlerised by Bill Haley), 'Flip, Flop And Fly', 'Boogie Woogie Country Girl', 'Teen Age Letter' and 'Lipstick, Powder And Paint' were among the most exciting records of the '50s and led to literally hundreds of covers by legions of rockabilly singers. Tracks: (We're Gonna) Jump For Joy/ Well, All Right/ Flip, Flop And Fly/ Love Roller Coaster/ Honey Hush/ I Need A Girl/ Lipstick, Powder And Paint/ T. V. Mama/ Hide And Seek/ Adam Bit The Apple/ My Gal's A Jockey/ Feelin' Happy/ Jumpin' Tonight (Midnight Rocking)/ Shake, Rattle And Roll/ Boogie Woogie Country Girl/ Teen Age Letter/ Corrine, Corrina/ Midnight Cannonball/ Bump Miss Susie/ Crawdad Hole/ Morning, Noon And Night/ Rock-A-While/ Oke-She-Moke-She-Pop/ The Chicken And The Hawk/ Roll 'Em Pete/ Rebecca / Around The Clock Blues, Part 1/ Around The Clock Blues, Part 2.

IKE TURNER Down & Out: The Ike Turner Recordings 1951-1959 (Jerome Records) Life’s a bitch, and so is the world...for Ike Turner at least. Neither his late and absurd Hall of Fame induction nor the release of compilations like this one will ever do justice to one of the KEY characters in the birth and development of R&R. That is why any album underlining his historical importance and artistic talent deserves plenty of attention. “Down and Out” –available on vinyl only— gathers the very best of Ike’s output as a solo artist and as the leader of the Kings of Rhythm during the fifties. This feast of raw R&B includes “I’m Lonesome Baby”, his legendary first 45, the killer instrumentals “Cuban Getaway” and “Cubano Jump”, as well as “Box Top”, the recording debut of a very young Tina. Exquisite cover art, remastered sound, liner notes and discography by specialist Fred Rothwell, the man who is currently writing Ike Turner’s biography. TRACKLIST: I'm Lonesome Baby, You're Driving Me Insane, Cubano Jump, Troubles And Heartaches, Looking For My Baby, Cuban Getaway, I Wanna Make Love To You, Loosely, Boxtop, (I Know) You Don't Love Me, Go To It, Down & Out, Walking Down The Aisle, My Love. LP 14.90
IKE TURNER Real Gone Rocket: Session Man Extraordinaire - Selected Singles 1951-1959 (Jerome Records) Besides being an excellent boogie pianist and guitarist supremo, Ike Turner shone as a top-notch composer, producer and talent scout. It's a fact that Ike was at the same professional level as some of the biggest names of the day, whom he worked with on a number of occasions. This new 45’s compilation shines light on this little-known aspect of his artistic career as the genius-behind-the-curtains in several recordings by other artists. Included are R&B essentials such as “My Real Gone Rocket” or “I Ain’t Drunk” by the legendary Jackie Brenston and Lonnie the Cat, as well as obscure numbers –never re-issued till now—such as “Nobody Seems to Want me” by Jessie Knight, “Would You Rather” by Kenneth Churchill, the Starrs’ amazing cover of “Ain’t Got No Home” or Chuck Bernard’s “Calling Your Name”. Liner notes and discography/sessionography by Fred Rothwell.TRACKLIST: “My Real Gone Rocket” Jackie Brenston, “I Ain’t Drunk” Lonnie The Cat, “Gypsy Blues” Matt Cockrell, “Nobody Seems To Want Me” Jesse Knight, “I’m Tired Of Begging” The Sly Fox, “Peg Leg Woman” Willie King, “Suffocate” Johnny Wright, “Just One More Time” Billy Gayles, “My Baby’s Tops” Gardinias, “The Big Question” Clayton Love, “Would You Rather” Kenneth Churchill, “Calling Your Name” Chuck Bernard, “Ain’t Got No Home” Starrs, “Ho Ho” Ikey Renrut.

ANNA VALENTINO / RAY MCKINLEY On a Tropical Island / Similau (Popcorn POPC 103) Sublime, exotic jazz vocals with cool, slick accompaniment. Two awesome pieces of 50s exotica as this 3rd release on the Popcorn reissue label showcases the wider reaches of the beguiling Belgian popcorn sound. ‘On A Tropical Island’ is an irresistibly seductive number, with singer Anna Valentino sounding very much the alluring siren as she recounts a passionate love affair on a faraway island. Wonderfully Jazzy with a Latin rhythm underpinning, this is such an evocative sound. On the flip is a very early piece: Bandleader and croon-cat Ray McKinley’s 1949 rendition of the song ’Similau’ is really unique and instantly arresting. There are a couple of other versions of the song which are popular amongst Popcorn collectors, but this is really the best and most interesting, and it’s worth mentioning that as the original is 78rpm only, this reissue marks the first time it’s been released on DJ friendly vinyl. Two choice and tasteful pieces for the discerning listener! 7" 7.50

YOUNG JESSE Don't Happen No More (Jazzman JMANLP068) Young Jessie is one of the unheralded greats of the R&B, Rock & Roll and Soul eras. Beginning his career as a young teenager in LA vocal group the Flairs (with schoolmate Richard Berry, later of 'Louie Louie' infamy), he then signed on with Modern records and cut several high quality R&B sides through the mid-1950s. Never quite achieving the level of fame and fortune of some of his immediate peers, the closest Young Jessie got to a hit was 1956's 'Mary Lou', which sold well regionally and was later on covered by the likes of Bob Seger and the Steve Miller band. Meanwhile, Young Jessie busied himself recording demos with Leiber & Stoller for one of their regular artists, Elvis Presley. Flitting between labels at the end of the 50s and into the 60s, his own output remained consistently of a very high quality, and always in step with the changing times - from doo wop in his beginnings through Blues, R&B, Rock & Roll and into Soul. Throughout all of that, Young Jessie always considered himself a Jazz singer first and foremost, and this influence underpins all of his vocal performances. Tracklist: Smell a Rat/ Lonesome Desert/ Hoochie Coochie/ Don't Happen No More/ Mary Lou (Modern)/ Lula Belle/ Hit, Git and Split/ Big Chief (King of Love)/ The Wrong Door/ Teacher Gimme Back/ Brown Eyes (Come on Home)/ You Were Meant for Me/ Make Me Feel a Little Good/ Mary Lou. LP  20.50 / CD 11.60
