LINK WRAY – Bullshot [1979] Vinyl Rip!

BenQ DC S1410

 

Aloha from hell!!! Here we go again with another Surfadelic vinyl rip. This time it’s a 79′ comeback lp for ”The King of GROWLING guitar”. After his successful collaboration with R-billy hero Robert Gordon, Link is more than eager to put his solo album, a R’n’R revival slab with mostly vocal numbers and few instro cuts, re-recordings of his 60’s tunes ”Snag” and ”Rawhide”, and one new, super cool ”Peter Gun” rip off called ”Switchblade”. There are fine rockin’ covers of ”Fever” and Dylan’s ”It’s All Over Now Baby Blue” and rumblin’ originals ”Good Good Lovin”’, ” Just That Kind” and ”Wild Party”. Produced by Richard Gottehrer [Blondie, Richard Hell, Go-Go’s…], mastered by Greg Calbi [Ramones, DMZ, Television, Iggy Pop…]. And… ya know… Vinyl Rip by Mr.Eliminator. Dig!!!

Songs The RAMONES Taught Us

the-ramones-heard-them-here-first-

 

”The Ramones never shied away from a good cover tune, and their tastes were generally confined to ’60s radio pop, girl group, surf, and a touch of psychedelic garage rock. They even went so far as to record an entire album of covers with 1993’s lighthearted Acid Eaters, a set of covers that leaned heavily on masters of psychedelic garage like Love, the Seeds, and the Troggs as well as early-’60s surf classics from the Beach Boys and Jan & Dean. The Ramones: Heard Them Here First is an easy mark, collecting the original versions later recorded by a band whose members wore their influences proudly on their sleeves and were drawn more to genre-defining classics than obscure rarities. The collection is thorough, moving in chronological order from Chris Montez’s “Let’s Dance” (covered on the Ramones’ 1976 debut album) through to Louis Armstrong’s “What a Wonderful World” and the Stooges’ “1969” as covered by Joey Ramone on his posthumous 2002 album, Don’t Worry About Me. Ace did their homework, too, because not even a cover of 1910 Fruitgum Company’s goofy bubblegum hit “Indian Giver” from a late-’80s 12″ B-side was lost in the shuffle. The only covers that aren’t from the golden age of late-’50s and 1960s teen pop and surf are Motörhead’s tribute to the band “R.A.M.O.N.E.S.” and Tom Waits’ wistful Peter Pan tale “I Don’t Wanna Grow Up” from his 1992 masterpiece, Bone Machine. There’s nothing revelatory about the collection, but these classic tracks make sense together as much as they did when covered in a sped-up punked-out fashion by the Ramones, who were a classic band in their own right.” [Fred Thomas]

24 trax comp with originals covered by Ramones + 9 more trax added by Surfadelic for complete overview of bros’ 60’s & 70’s r’n’r favs. Take It As It Comes, Dig!!!

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!!!

Songs The LYRES Taught Us [60’s Garage]

LYRES 3C

 

I’ve planned this for a long time and now here is a big fat 72 trax collection of songs covered by garage rock heroes the Lyres. As you know Jeff ‘Mono Man’ Conolly is a big fan of 60’s garage/beat especially The Kinks, The Pretty Things, The Sonics, The Standells, Chocolate Watch Band, 13th Floor Elevators, Flamin’ Groovies, The Stooges, Dutch band The Outsiders as well as some obscure ”Pebbles/Back from the grave” kinda stuff. Lyres have that rare ability kinda ‘magic’ to make others tunes sound as their own [somethin’ like The Cramps or Ramones]. Most songs in this collection are from 60’s but there are some R&B/Roll from 50’s and two trax from late 70’s Boston garage-punk acts. Almost every song they covered on their studio albums and live recordings is here, sometime in 2 versions. So, if you’re a fan of Lyres and 60’s garage/beat you should check these Mono Man favorites. Dig !!!

TOOTER BOATMAN – Tooter Boatman And Friends [Rare 50’s Rockabilly]

BenQ DC S1410

 

“Tooter Boatman was a Texas rocker who recorded prolifically between 1957 and 1963, but only a handful of recordings were issued during his too short life. In 1957 he formed his own rock and roll group, the Chapparals. Towards the end of 1957 they made their first record, “Poor Gal”/“Sweet Lies” (Rebel 108), which was credited to The Chaparrals. It was recorded at the Clifford Herring studio in Fort Worth, but after Danny Wolfe opened his own studio in Stephensville, Boatman and his group would hold almost all their sessions there. Danny Wolfe, a good friend of Tooter, was a songwriter / singer / pianist who went on to write most of their material. Wolfe’s songs have also been recorded by many other artists, including Gene Vincent, John D. Loudermilk, Pat Boone, Huelyn Duvall and Sanford Clark. Wolfe became the manager of the Chapparals and booked them in clubs and on TV shows all over Texas.

TOOTER BOATMAN

The second release was the one for which Boatman is best known. “The Will of Love” was released in April 1958 on Twinkle 501, coupled with “More and More (I Love You)”. Several sources claim that “The Will of Love” was coupled with “Thunder and Lightning” (another rockabilly classic from the pen of Danny Wolfe), but these two songs were not coupled until 1972, when they were issued on a UK repro single (Injun 108). On August 1, 1964, Boatman’s life came to an abrupt end. A hit and run driver killed Tooter and his close friend Tom Putt on a lonely country road in California.” [rockabilly.nl]

Cool, previously unissued 50’s stuff by this Texas r-billy cat on White Label records lp comp. from 1983. Already have posted it on my old blog and here it is again. Vinyl rip by Mr.Eliminator. Dig!!!
