Field Music – Tones of Town

Field Music – Tones of Town

Field Music

 

Hugely acclaimed on its release in early 2007, Field Musics Tones of Town established them as one of the UKs most sophisticated and forward thinking bands. An album of ambitiously skewed, multi-layered pop which gradually revealed its intricacies over repeated listens, Tones of Town saw Field Music pushing and scratching at all of the boundaries implicit in their debut; the sound of a band moving in several directions at once, searching for ways to surprise themselves, taking risks and trying something new, setting the template for their continually expanding oeuvre. Available on vinyl for the first time in ten years, this Record Store Day release comes on 180gm Yellow Vinyl.

The Johnny Cash Children’s Album showcased a lighter side of The Man in Black. Released in 1975, this LP featured lighthearted songs like “Nasty Dan” (written by Sesame Street writer Jeff Moss and first performed by Cash on the classic children’s program), the original “I Got a Boy (and His Name is John)” (written about Cash’s only son, John Carter Cash, who contributes liner notes to this reissue) and “Old Shep,” famously recorded by Elvis Presley in 1956. Available on vinyl for the first time in more than 40 years, The Johnny Cash Children’s Album is good country fun for the whole family.

When Santana took the stage at the Woodstock Music & Art Fair on August 16, 1969, they were unknown outside of the thriving Bay Area music scene. By the time they triumphantly walked off the stage, they were one of the festival’s biggest surprises. Santana delivered a career-making performance melding Latin rock and bruising blues that set the stage for their platinum-selling debut album, released weeks later. Now, Santana Live At The Woodstock Music & Art Fair, August 16, 1969 takes listeners back to that show-stopping set, pressed on vinyl for the first time.

Curtis Knight featuring Jimi Hendrix – Live At George’s Club 20

Curtis Knight featuring Jimi Hendrix – Live At George’s Club 20

New York band leader Curtis Knight met Hendrix (then merely Jimmy James) in later 1965 and brought him into this band, The Lovelights. These raw recordings were laid down on Boxing Day 1965 and 22 January 1966 are of The Lovelights tearing through rock’n’roll, soul and blues songs of the day.

According to the review on the jimihendrix.store:  Even in these recordings, Jimi’s personality, stagecraft and humor are evident throughout. More so was his burgeoning skill as a guitarist. Jimi wasn’t someone coming and learning on the gig. He was very seasoned. He had knowledge of all the hit songs. He had ‘em down. Ace Hall recollects. “Jimi was a leader. He would play out. A lot of guitar players are just card shufflers. Jimi was playing it loud. He made sure that everybody heard what he was doing. I have to give him that. He did it very well.”
