Mungo Jerry are one of rock’s great one-hit successes. Outside of England, they’re known for exactly one song, but that song, “In the Summertime,” is a seasonal anthem known by listeners who weren’t even born when it was released. Mungo Jerry was a solid blues outfit as well – in fact, one suspects they were the kind of blues band that purists Alexis Korner and Cyril Davies would have loved, had they ever intersected – and knew how to get the most out of their jug band sound, which helped them survive for decades.
Mungo Jerry were formed in 1970 by singer/guitarist Ray Dorset (born March 21, 1946), who had a fascination with early rock & roll sounds, as well as skiffle and blues. The other original members were Mike Cole on upright bass; Paul King on guitar, kazoo, and jug; Joe Rush playing washboard; and Colin Earl at the keyboards. Dorset and Earl had first hooked up in the Good Earth, a group with a mixed rock & roll and blues sound that cut some tracks for the mid-priced Saga label, none of which sold. Cole, King, and Rush came aboard and the lineup was complete. The name Mungo Jerry – from a T.S. Eliot poem – came next, with a contract from Pye Records.

|Oι Prophets κάτω από το άγαλμα του Κολοκοτρώνη, στη Σταδίου|
Δύο χρόνια αργότερα (Δεκέμβριος 1969) οι Derek “Mo” Moore και Ron Howden (από τους Upsetters και Prophets) θα ενώνονταν με τους Allan Freeman, Roye Albrighton και Mick Brockett, που προέρχονταν από άλλα συγκροτήματα, δίνοντας ζωή στους Nektar…
Και κάτι ακόμη. Τον Δεκέμβριο του 2011 είχαν κυκλοφορήσει από την (ελληνική) Missing Vinyl τα τρία πρώτα LP του συγκροτήματος (“Journey to the Centre of the Eye”, “A Tab in the Ocean”, “Remember the Future”) σε εκδόσεις διπλών βινυλίων (με bonus tracks).
Πόσα χρόνια, είπαμε, έχουν περάσει από το 1965;

Επειδή, όμως, είχε πολλά dead links και μια διαμόρφωση κάπως μυστήρια (για μένα, τώρα), αποφάσισα να το αναδημοσιεύσω. Το κείμενο είναι σχεδόν το ίδιο. Δεν έχω προσθέσει, ούτε αφαιρέσει κάτι ουσιαστικό]

Ry Cooder has always been a musical storyteller, from his self-titled debut album (which featured both well-known and under-recognized folk, blues, swing, and jug tunes) to Boomer’s Story, his last two offerings for Nonesuch (Chavez Ravine and My Name Is Buddy), and his many film scores (including those for The Long Riders, Paris, Texas, Last Man Standing, Geronimo, and The End of Violence, just to mention a few). When his contributions as a musicologist, producer, and collaborator — such as his contributions to the various Buena Vista Social Club recordings (including the film score) and his work with V.M. Bhatt, Pops Staples, Ersi Arvizu, and guitarist Manuel Galbán of Los Zafiros — are included, he becomes a genuine mythmaker. I, Flathead contributes to the weight of Cooder’s legend in many ways. First, there’s the title, an obvious nod to the late Isaac Asimov’s I, Robot; then there’s the legend — the entire story is told in a 100-page, hardbound novella that accompanies the Deluxe Edition — about beatnik, country music nut, and salt-flats racer Kash Buk, his band the Klowns, the strange and wonderful extraterrestrial visitor called Shakey, and the Passenger who pursues him. It’s even subtitled “The Songs of Kash Buk and the Klowns.” Finally, there’s the music; it’s a set of 14 original tunes that employ everything from country rockabilly to blues; strange, shimmering exotica; and Latin-influenced rock, swing, and mariachi music.
Musically, there isn’t anything here you haven’t heard from Cooder before, but it’s shaken and stirred differently and owes a nod or two to Tom Waits’ deadpan storytelling manner. This album doesn’t have the futuristic Latin groove of Chavez Ravine or the traveling dust-bowl balladic country and folk that was on My Name Is Buddy, but it is simultaneously as welcoming and off-putting as both those earlier records. The songs can be enjoyed with or without the novella, as they were meant to stand apart. The story in it is directly related, but there is a story the recording tells on its own. The sound of the record is frighteningly crystalline for roots-oriented music — the dirty-assed bottleneck slide guitar-fueled “Ridin’ with the Blues,” with drummer Jim Keltner and guitarist Rene Camacho, feels too clean despite its tempo and loose vibe. “Pink-O Boogie” follows with the same band — with added percussion from Joachim Cooder — but the groove is nastier and dirtier, and feels like it could have come from the Get Rhythm album in 1987. Near the end, Jesús Guzmán arranges some crazy string work to take it out. The rootsy rocker “Waitin’ for Some Girl,” where Cooder plays everything but drums (courtesy of Martin Pradler) sounds like a lost John Hiatt tune from Ry’s Slide Area period (it’s also better than anything that Hiatt has come up with himself in ages). Old pal Flaco Jiménez lends his accordion to “Filipino Dancehall Girl,” a beautiful norteño tune that is kissed by cha-cha in Joachim’s rhythms. “Spayed Kooley” is, as one might expect, a humorous Western swing jam, but played by a basic rock trio. And then there’s the beautifully articulated swing ballad “My Dwarf Is Getting Tired,” one of the more beautifully warm broken love songs Cooder has ever written — and the string touches by Guzmán make it a shuffling lounge fave. Ultimately, “quirky” doesn’t begin to describe I, Flathead, but it doesn’t have to: this disc is simultaneously both vintage and futuristic Cooder doing what he does best, offering listeners ghost traces of the past as they materialize on the dusty desert horizon like a mirage.

His smooth baritone vocals are reminiscent of such esteemed musicians as Jamey Johnson, James Otto, and Chris Stapleton. Grab a bottle of wine, and let him lure you in. This CD is recommended for music listeners, especially those that enjoy ballads. Gods & Ghosts garners 4.5 out of 5 stars.

Kenny Burrell – Have Yourself A Soulful Little Christmas 1966 Cadet Records LPS 779 This Reissue 2003 Verve Records / Cadet – EU Pressing A warm little record to shepherd you through the cold days of Yuletide and the malaise of piped-in holiday music. It’s a statistical fact that most Christmas albums are crap. They also have historically made up a mindbogglingly large proportion of record sales throughout the history of recorded music.

Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce the release of an expanded 2 disc edition of the acclaimed Procol Harum album “Grand Hotel”. Released in March 1973 the album was the first to feature a line-up of Gary Brooker (piano, vocals), Alan Cartwright (bass), Chris Copping (organ), Mick Grabham (guitars) and B.J. Wilson (drums) and was remarkable for its musical diversity and was hailed as “A masterpiece of musical perfection and lyricism” by the NME weekly music paper. From the sumptuously orchestrated title track, to compositions such as ‘For Liquorice John’, ‘Fires (Which Burnt Brightly)’, ‘Bringing Home The Bacon’, ‘Toujours L’Amour’ and ‘Robert’s Box’ – “Grand Hotel” defied classification but remains one of Procol Harum’s best loved and most admired works.
This expanded two disc edition includes five bonus tracks, (three previously unreleased), taken from the early recording sessions, along with a DVD (NTSC / Region Free) featuring a previously unreleased performance filmed for RTBF television in Belgium from November 1973. The release also features a replica of the book included with the original LP of “Grand Hotel” and a further lavishly illustrated booklet featuring material from Gary Brooker’s personal archive and an essay by Procol Harum authority Roland Clare featuring comments from Gary Brooker.

“A Time for Tidings”, cabaret-style live from the Vancouver East Cultural Centre, stirs together traditional Christmas and holiday evergreens with year-round musical treats from English, French and German repertoire. It’s an organic blend of rock, jazz, folk, roots and soul to reflect and refresh all our emotions.

Gladys Knight & the Pips were together for almost 40 years. They started performing together in 1952 (when Knight was only eight years old), and it wasn’t until 1990 that a 46-year-old Knight finally became a full-time solo artist and the Pips retired from music. Only seven of the group’s 38 years were spent at Motown, but they were seven incredibly important years. They did some of their most essential work at the label, which they signed with in 1966 and left in 1973. That year, Buddah made them an offer they couldn’t refuse, and a very aggressive promotional campaign on their part made 1973’s Imagination (their first Buddah album) a blockbuster hit. 1973 was also the year in which Motown released All I Need Is Time, which was recorded not long before their departure from the label. This LP wasn’t the mega-hit that Imagination was, but even so, it is generally excellent. Knight has a lot of first-rate material to work with, and she is as impressive on romantic ballads and slow jams (“I’ll Be Here When You Get Home,” “Oh! What a Love I Have Found,” “All I Need Is Time”) as she is on up-tempo gems, which include the Staple Singers’ “Heavy Makes You Happy” and a superb cover of Sly & the Family Stone’s “Thank You (Falletin Me Be Mice Elf Agin).” Meanwhile, there are hints of Philadelphia soul on “The Only Time You Love Me Is When You’re Losing Me,” which shows us what Knight & the Pips might have sounded like in the 1970s if they had recorded for Philadelphia International instead of Motown and Buddah. A fine album that should have done a lot better, All I Need Is Time is well worth obtaining if you’re a fan of the group’s 1970s output.
