CHUCK BERRY – Golden Decade Vol.2 [ViNyL RiP!]

Chuck Berry - Golden Decade 2-1

 

Chess not only reissued the 1967. compilation Chuck Berry’s Golden Decade, but also assembled this 1972. second volume, which contains another 24 Berry songs from the late 1950s to the mid-1960s on two LPs. Of course, the first album gathered the best-known and biggest hits, but there was plenty of memorable material left over, and this album contains the Top 40 hits “Carol” and “You Never Can Tell,” the chart entries “Sweet Little Rock And Roller,” “Jo Jo Gunne,” “Run Rudolph Run,” “Merry Christmas Baby,” “Let lt Rock,” “Jaguar And Thunderbird,” “Little Queenie,” and “Promised Land,” the R&B hit “No Money Down,” and such hits-for-others as “Come On” (the Rolling Stones’ first U.K. single). That’s more than enough to earn the album a “best” rating. [William Ruhlmann]

“This selection of 16 gems recorded between 1956 and 1968 is amazingly modern. Irresistibly smooth yet radical, sharply biting, yet affable, these songs from another era have the power to make even the saddest squares laugh and wriggle, dance and jump about.”

Cool collection of R&B movers & grovers, dancefloor shakers & instros compiled by El Vidocq. Fav tunes: Harvey – Any Way You Wanta, The Keymen – Gazackstahagen, The El Torros – Doop Doop A Walla Walla, Ricardo Ray – Nitty Gritty, Triny Lopez – Sinner Not A Saint, Baker Knight – Hungry For Love, Johnny Nash – I’m Movin’ On, Big Bo & The Arrows – Big Bo’s-Twist.

BO DIDDLEY – Bo’s Blues

Bo Diddley blues1

”500%, more man
A living dream
Bo Diddley, baby
More man than you ever seen
A young women’s wish
And a old women’s dream”

”Bo’s Blues features 22 of Bo Diddley’s best blues-oriented sides from the Chess catalog, including some rare stuff — the rip-roaring 1959 outing “Run Diddley Daddy,” a jive-loaded “Cops and Robbers” from 1956 that features maraca shaker Jerome Green more than Diddley, and a surging “Down Home Special.” If you think that everything Bo Diddley ever made has that same shave-and-a-haircut beat, this collection will set you straight!”[Bill Dahl]

From time to time I have to post some Bo’s stuff just to remind you on the master of wyld rhythm & blues. This is Bo intermezzo at Surfadelic.

ELVIS PRESLEY – I Was The One [1983] Vinyl Rip!

ELVIS_PRESLEY_I+WAS+THE+ONE-520171

 

Yes, he was. This lp collection is one of the first Elvis slabs I bought and it’s interesting for great sound enchanced by new remix. Some says these are late 70’s re-recordings of ‘Kings’ classic tunes but I’m not sure. What I know is that this is cool collection with great sound quality so even if you’re feelin’ overstuffed with Elvis stuff check this one anyway. Vinyl rip by Surfadelic. Dig!!!

CHARLIE FEATHERS – Jungle Fever / Uh Huh Honey [Hiccup Rockabilly Legend]

Charlie Feathers - Jungle Fever 1

“I’m a tip-top daddy and I’m gonna have my way
Keep away from the corners is what I got to say
With a-one hand only, get a-ready for a ride
Give me one hand loose and I’ll be satisfied”

“Charlie grew up in rural North Mississippi and was taught guitar by his friend, Junior Kimbrough, before heading off to nearby Memphis in 1950 with a view to making it in the music business. He should have been massive, being one of Sam Phillips‘ first white signing to Sun Records, writing some great songs and having (arguably) an even better ‘stage’ name than Elvis Presley, who he soon be-friended. Sadly, it was not to be, as even though he recorded regularly for Sun and other labels such as Meteor, Kay, King and more, a mix of bad luck, poor decision-making and an impatient personality all contributed to a life among the also-rans and nearly-men. The notes to this set suggest that it may also have been that, despite his instinctive and natural feel for rockabilly, his distinctive ‘hiccupy’ vocal delivery was too pure for mass consumption”

Give me a free hand baby, ’cause I wanna rock
Turn me loose and maybe I will blow my top
Give me a free hand woman, let it swing by my side
Just give me one hand loose and I’ll be satisfied
Turn loose! Oh, turn loose!”

Charlie Feathers - Jungle Fever 2

“I can’t hardly stand it
You’re troublin’ me
I can’t hardly stand
It just can’t be…”

His name is most frequently associated with the classics that regularly appear on the best rockabilly compilations – Tongue-Tied Jill, Everybody’s Lovin’ My Baby, Bottle To The BabyOne Hand Loose, Get With It and, of course, Can’t Hardly Stand It [made famous by Born Bad, Songs We Taught The Cramps comps.]

Jungle Fever” LP is essential collection of Charlie’s 50’s R-billy and country rock stuff and it’s a must have. “Uh Huh Honey” thought not so important comp. as ‘Fever’ brings together all of his late-’60s recordings for the Memphis-based Philwood label, along with some fascinating live TV recordings from 1978. has some real cool trax as The Wild Side Of Life, Do You Know, Rain (Where’s She at Tonight), Long Time Ago, and others. Classic uncontrolled Feathersbilly. Great rockabilly from a true legend!

“Well, it’s rain-rain-rain it keeps on falling
Upon my window pane tonight
Though our love is even colder
Still wonder where she’s at tonight…”

 

Charlie Feathers _1_002 (1)

 

“Well, feel the rhythm in your bones and you know how I feel
But don’t you grab me close baby, this time is for real
Get ready for some rockin’, pick ’em up and put ’em down
Give me one hand loose and I’ll be satisfied”
