The Glenn Miller Formula Part Six
Release Date: 11/17/2017
Format: CD
List Price: (A20) $20.98 

If you all wondering where part five of the “Glenn Miller Formula” is, You will find it on SOY 758, “Tex Swings, Eydie Sings”, featuring Tex Beneke and his Music In The Mood. Four RCA Thesaurus tracks left out of that CD are on this one. Tex was jubilant in 1951. No more back seat drivers! He had a new recording contract with MGM. He has new musicians in the band like Eddie Zandi (trumpet) Buddy Clark (bass) and Mel Lewis on drums and his old piano player, Henry Mancini, on a retainer to write arrangements. Although he was no longer under contract to Helen Miller, Tex still stuck to the Glenn Miller formula. Just listen to those clarinet lead sexes on this CD, as the band accompanies Shirley Wilson and Bill Raymond with their songs.

Testifyin' & Patches
Release Date: 11/10/2017
Format: CD
List Price: (B16) $16.98 

(5% DISCOUNT THRU 10-27-17) The great Alabama soul man Clarence Carter was at the peak of his popularity when he recorded and released the two albums featured in Kent's latest project from the vaults of Fame records. 1969 and 1970 were good years for Clarence, providing some of the biggest R&B hits of his career and bringing him worldwide mainstream popularity with his version of 'Patches'. These two albums feature all seven of Clarence's chart smashes from that two-year period, plus many other fan favorites from this part of his discography. By way of a bonus we also feature three tracks from early 1971 that somehow evaded any kind of release when new, and which have only ever been previously issued on a now-deleted, limited edition vinyl EP.

Miles In Berlin
Release Date: 11/17/2017
Format: LP
List Price: (B44) $44.98 

It's 1964 and the first Berlin Jazz Festival is about to reach its absolute peak: the final concert on the night of Friday, 25th September by Miles Davis. And the European subsidiary of Columbia Records, CBS, couldn’t wait to release this legendary event on LP. The new quintet, for the first time with Wayne Shorter on the tenor sax (and not yet as composer), thrilled and roused the audience in the Philharmonie from the first minute to the very end. The classics "Miles(tones)", "So What" and "Walkin’" were performed at an astonishingly fast pace, the ballads were tender and dreamy. Such a magical atmosphere was rarely evoked at later concerts, which was probably due to the excellent acoustics of the large concert hall.

The Song Book
Release Date: 1/19/2018
Format: LP
List Price: (B51) $51.98 

Of Booker Ervin's nine Prestige albums, this one is special because it presents him exclusively in the contexts of standard songs. Ervin's aggressiveness, his ferocity, his incomparable Texas spaciousness of sound and style, are undiminished. But the compositions provide familiar guideposts by which to track his explorations, which were unfailingly full of adventure and daring. In his only recorded appearance with Ervin, pianist Tommy Flanagan balances the music with his customary elegance. On bass and drums are Ervin's frequent recording companions Richard Davis and Alan Dawson.

Groovin' With Golson
Release Date: 1/19/2018
Format: LP
List Price: (B51) $51.98 

Benny Golson, who came to the attention of the jazz public with Tadd Dameron's band and Dizzy Gillespie's orchestra, was a member of the Jazztet &emdash; the group he had formed with Art Farmer &emdash; at the time of this recording. Farmer is not with him in this recording but another Jazztet-mate, trombonist Curtis Fuller, is. Although this session is not as structured as the three-horn efforts of the Jazztet, there is a balance between blowing and Golson's writing that makes for a felicitous blend, whether on Golson's own "My Blues House," Gene Krupa's old burner, "Drum/Boogie," or Jerome Kern's "Yesterdays." And with Art Blakey on drums things cook when they have to, and simmer at the right moments. With Curtis Fuller, Ray Bryant, Paul Chambers and Art Blakey.

The Wildroot Shows 1946
Release Date: 11/17/2017
Format: CD
List Price: (A20) $20.98 

By the end of 1944, Woody Herman had what was essentially a brand new orchestra. It was a wild, good-time band with screaming ensembles (propelled by first trumpeter Pete Candoli), major soloists in trombonist Bill Harris and tenor man Flip Phillips, and a rhythm section pushed by bassist Joe Mondragon and drummer Don Lamond. In 1945 (with new trumpeters in Sonny Berman and Conte Candoli), the First Herd was considered the most exciting new big band in jazz. This CD features two “live” Recordings Woody made for the Wildroot company and is a chance to hear this top rated band performing in a commercial environment on old time radio.

Soul Blues
Release Date: 1/19/2018
Format: LP
List Price: (B51) $51.98 

A true poet of the blues, Lightnin' Hopkins was a master of tall, tongue-in-cheek tales, often made up on the spot in the recording studio. The first song on this album "I'm Going to Build Me a Heaven of My Own," describes an encounter with a bearded man claiming to be Jesus Christ. Hopkins also puts his personal stamp on Willie Dixon's "My Babe" and Smokey Hogg's "Too Many Drivers," among others. For Soul Blues Ryan Smith at Sterling Sound created a 24/192K hi-res file from a needle drop on a clean original LP. This was done because the tape supplied for mastering proved to be from a needle drop itself, not the original, which has been lost since the early 1970s. Smith took the original LP, did a new needle drop and meticulously worked to eliminate the minimal tics and pops that remained. Then he mastered the album for LP and SACD from the hi-res file.

They were the first dance band to play at The Paris Opera House and Jack was made a Chevalier of the Legion d’Honneur. In contrast to most of the other major British bandleaders a broadcast by the Hylton hand was a rather rare occasion. Hylton‘s fame came from his theater appearances and his records. On 16th December 1931, however. they were the first band to broadcast direct to the United States. In ten and a half years up to the end of 1931 the Hylton band managed to record 1200 titles.

(2-LP set) Three of Sarah McLachlan's biggest pop hits mark her fourth studio album Surfacing.

Format: LP
List Price: (B44) $44.98 

Sergei Prokofiev was a real expert when it came to writing short musical works with brilliant orchestration. His Op. 25, the "Classical" Symphony is not only his shortest and best known, but also the most humorous with its genial emulation of the style of Papa Haydn. The leaps and jumps, the courtly gestures and turbulent last dance flirt with the familiar style of the always slightly cool Modern music.

(5% DISCOUNT THRU 10-27-17) Phil Seymour's story reads like a novel: three young hopefuls from Tulsa in love with 60s music and determined to bring back melody and pop songs to 70s rock set off for Hollywood to find fame and fortune. First comes joy as they sign to Shelter Records and crash into the Top 20 in 1975 as the Dwight Twilley Band. Next, frustration as they encounter problems with their failing record company, and the inevitable split as drummer/vocalist/songwriter Phil Seymour goes solo. Initially he struggles to find a foothold but once the new wave hits America, the Phil Seymour Band storms Hollywood and becomes one of the hottest acts on the circuit. Signed to Neil Bogart's Boardwalk label, by 1981 Phil is riding high at #22 on Billboard's Hot 100 with the self-penned classic 'Precious To Me'. More terrific releases follow and, for a while, Phil is the brightest star on the horizon, but Bogart's death in 1983 means the end of his Boardwalk contract. He doggedly continues to make good music but contracts lymphoma and dies in 1993 at age 41. Handsomely packaged with a 20-page booklet sporting rare photos and extensive notes incorporating exclusive interviews with band mate Michael Anderson and recording engineer Bill Cooper, our collection comprises 13 of Phil's finest recordings and 11 never-before-heard tracks, including nine terrific demos cut at producer Richie Podolor's American Recording studio in Los Angeles.

(5% DISCOUNT THRU 10-27-17) The Radiators From Space were Ireland's first Punk Rock band and we have just celebrated the 40th anniversary of their "TV Tube Heart" debut LP with a special expanded edition. The band made a second album then parted ways. Ten years after their debut they reformed and made an album called "Trouble Pilgrim" (available on CWK 269). After one more album singer, guitarist and Philip Chevron's death halted the Radiators' career. Original Radiators Pete Holidai and Steve Rapid have continued under the Trouble Pilgrims name and since 2013 have issued two singles. "Dark Shadows And Rust" is their album debut. With later Radiators drummer Johnny Bonnie joined by Tony St. Ledger on second guitar and Bren Lynott on bass they conjure up a swirl of dark material nodding in the direction of the Cramps and post punks the Bad Seeds, but leavened by Pete's fine sense of 60s style melody and underpinned by Steve's Enoesque keyboards.

Mirwood Northern Soul
Release Date: 11/10/2017
Format: LP
List Price: (B27) $27.98 

(5% DISCOUNT THRU 10-27-17) Mirwood Records' second release was Jackie Lee's 'The Duck', an uptempo soul swinger that became a big hit and established the Mirwood sound. The house team of producer Fred Smith, arranger James Carmichael, songwriter and backing voices arranger Sherlie Matthews, along with contributions from veteran singer/songwriters Bobby Relf and Earl Nelson (Bob & Earl), made for uptempo soul perfection and they played that beat throughout 1965 and 1966. More US chart action occurred for Mirwood with the Olympics and Bob & Earl but much of their superlative work fell on deaf American ears. It was the British soul aficionados of the early 70s who discovered these masterpieces and played them on the burgeoning Northern Soul scene with dancers reveling in the relentless beats, pleading vocals and sassy female backing. Virtually any Jackie Lee track was a worthy contender and although they never repeated his 'Duck' success, the company created soul classics like 'Do The Temptation Walk', the later master tape discovery 'Anything You Want (Any Way You Want It)' and the anthemic 'Oh My Darlin''.

(5% DISCOUNT THRU 10-27-17)(2-LP set) The boogaloo is an infectious and little-defined dance that dominated American dance records in the mid-60s. It was the joyous place where young black and Latin youths met and made sweet music. All previous Boogaloo compilations have focused on the Latin aspect, "Let's Do The Boogaloo" looks at how the music crossed over between the two. The boogaloo craze started in Chicago with a record by Tom & Jerryo, but it proved to have an enduring legacy with its hit-making potential running from 1965 through to 1968 - much longer than any other comparable dance. Our earliest records - The infectious 'Ready Steady Go' by Prince & Princess, produced by Rolling Stones producer Jimmy Miller - kicks us off with a frenetic beat and some Latin horns. It is the perfect boogaloo crossover.
