GUITAR GABLE – Cool Calm Collected (With King Karl) [50’s R&B/Rockers]

Guitar Gable - -front

 

Guitar Gable was the stage name used by Gabriel Perrodin an American Louisiana rhythm & blues, rock’n’roll guitarist, singer and songwriter. With King Karl, Gable’s brother Clinton “Fats” Perrodin on bass guitar, and drummer Clarence “Jockey” Etienne, as The Musical Kings, they became studio band for record producer J. D. “Jay” Miller Excello Records. They backed musicians such as Lazy Lester, Classie Ballou, Skinny Dynamo, Bobby Charles and Slim Harpo [on legendary 1957. single I’m a King Bee, “I Got Love if You Want It“].

Guitar Gable and the Musical Kings had earlier recorded their own debut single for Excello in 1956. His first track was the pacy instrumental “Congo Mombo”, which relied on the melody of “Frankie and Johnny”. The A-side of the single was “Life Problem”, which featured King Karl’s vocals. The follow-up release included the swamp pop classic, “Irene”, which later influenced Jimmy Clanton’s “Just A Dream”.
Subsequent releases followed a similar pattern with Gable’s Caribbean-laced instrumentals such as “Congo Mombo,” “Guitar Rhumbo” and “Gumbo Mombo,” pitched against rock and roll tracks including “Cool, Calm, Collected” and “Walking in the Park.” It was the blues influenced ballads including “Irene,” “Life Problem” and “This Should Go On Forever” that caused most interest. The latter track was recorded by Gable and his band in 1958, but did not find favour with Miller. A cover version was recorded by Rod Bernard, and it reached the Top 20 of the US Billboard R&B chart. Gable’s original was finally released in February 1959, but failed to match the success of Bernard’s cover. [wiki]

Greasy & swampy R&B/Rockers and blues almost similar to Little Richard/Chuck Berry style by this Guitar [Clark] Gable 🙂 . This is 80’s vinyl compilation on Flyright Records. Be Cool Calm Collected and … Dig !!!

LOUNGE AT CINEVOX – Beat vol.1 & 2 [Italian Lounge & Film Music]

“Lounge at Cinevox: Beat plucks a series of lounge-influenced instrumentals from the vaults of Cinevox Records, an Italian record company that has specialized in soundtracks for many decades. Lounge fanatics will be happy to know that much of the material on this disc is either previously unreleased or making its first appearance on compact disc. Much of the material presented here has a jazzy swing to it: “Bakenda Beat” layers freewheeling sax and piano solos over the throb of a tight rhythm section, and “Up to Date” is a furiously paced track that lets percolating horns take the lead over a rat-a-tat backbeat from the drummer. Other cuts pursue a psychedelic pop style: “La Cosa Buffa” is an organ showcase paced by some mellow guitar riffs, while “2968” is a positively unhinged tune that piles fuzz guitar riffs and squealing brass atop a throbbing, echo-laden drumbeat. Precious little here fits the easy listening tag, but the occasional cut gives the listener a breather: “Supermarket” is a mellow track that sets some groovy organ soloing to the rhythms of a gently funky bassline, and the elegant closer, “C’Era Una Volta Un Motivo,” juxtaposes yearning strings and peppy horns over a light jazz beat. The problem with Lounge at Cinevox: Beat is that its selections often sacrifice melodic content in favor of just creating a mood, and this might cause non-lounge fans to quickly lose interest. Despite this problem, most of the cuts keep things short and sweet (only “Unknit” overstays its welcome), and the disc maintains a solid lounge-y groove throughout. As a result, Lounge at Cinevox: Beat is a solid pick for European lounge enthusiasts.” [AllMusic]

Fine 60’s & 70’s Italian lounge music of Piero Umiliani, Carlo Savina, Augusto Martelli,Carlo Rustichelli, Giorgio Gaslini, Gianni Ferrio, Ennio Morricone… Some real cool funky fuzz & organ sounds. Say… Dig !!!
