Voice - Edda Dell'Orso

Voice
Edda Dell'Orso is the sound of Italian cinema. Her astonishing voice recognisable to anyone who has experienced the landmark spaghetti western films made by Sergio Leone; films that were in the mid sixties scored by a young whippersnapper called Ennio Morricone. The recent revival of interest in mid-century post-modern art and the restoration of so many wonderful Morriconne scores has led many to discover Edda Dell'Orso. Her work is the epitome of intelligence and sophistication. It is utopian in its scope and its potential is vast.

Windy: A Ruthann Friedman Songbook
RECORDINGS FROM 1966-1970
FROM THE ORIGINAL MASTER TAPES!
ALL TRACKS FIRST TIME EVER RELEASED!
Having written The Association’s ‘Windy’ while living in David Crosby’s basement, RUTHANN FRIEDMAN remained an intriguing and mysterious figure of ‘60s pop for decades. Until recently her released output consisted of a lone folk album issued in 1970. Unbelievably, many fascinating recordings she created with some of the most revered names in West Coast pop have remained locked away in the vaults… until NOW!
Featuring productions by CURT BOETTCHER, TOMMY LiPUMA, and VAN DYKE PARKS, Windy: A Ruthann Friedman Songbook contains 18 tracks from 1966-1970, focusing on Ruthann’s pop/rock efforts from this era. Musicians include RANDY NEWMAN, RON ELLIOTT of The Beau Brummels, and RUSS GIGUERE from The Association! One listen to this CD and you’ll wonder why Ruthann didn’t have more hits of the magnitude of "Windy.”
Mastered by Alan Brownstein FROM THE ORIGINAL MASTER TAPES!

The full-colour booklet includes rare photos and extensive liner notes featuring the participation of Ruthann herself!

Burt Bacharach: Make it Easy on Yourself 1962
·       Third in El's series of Burt Bacharach composer anthologies following The First Book of Songs 1954-58 (ACMEM166CD) and Long Ago Last Summer 1959-61 (ACMEM233CD)
 
·       All of these recordings were released in 1962, a time in which Bacharach was at last - after years of unhappy compromise - beginning to be able to exert some control over the arranging and recording and finished presentation of his compositions
 
·       The advantages of Bacharach's personal supervision was evidenced by such memorable hits as Jerry Butler's 'Make It Easy on Yourself' which reached number 20 on the Billboard Top100, Chuck Jackson's ‘Any Day Now’, and the first recording of the beautiful ‘I Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself’ performed by former Flamingos vocalist Tommy Hunt. ‘Love of A Boy’ by Timi Yuro, The Shirelles, ‘It's Love That Really Counts (In The Long Run)’ and ‘Forgive Me (For Giving You Such a Bad Time)’ by Babs Tino, were other Burt Bacharach - Hal David compositions that charted that year.
 
·       Beside the hits, our edition also contains a number of Bacharach rarities; the only known recording of Marlene Dietrich performing a Bacharach song, ‘Kleine Treue Nachtigall’ (Small True Nightingale), soon to be more widely known as ‘Message to Michael’; a French version of ‘Too Late to Worry’ (Donne-Moi Ma Chance), sung by Sophia Loren, and the Drifters' ‘Mexican Divorce’, a classy but obscure flip-side session, where, among the backing singers, Bacharach encountered for the first time a certain Dionne Warrick (Warwick).
 
·       1962 found the duo that would revolutionise popular songwriting, establishing their style and getting into their stride. Within months they would commit to working together exclusively...

Christmas In The Congo
In forming and guiding the Troubadours du Roi Baudouin, Father Guido Haazen chose to add a new and marvelous chapter to the long history of African influence in music. The curiously irreverent jazz that was played at the New Orleans funerals is indebted to this influence; the poignant spirituals of the plantations recall their melancholy roots; the sambas and the marchas composed for the Mardi Gras Carnivals in Rio de Janeiro pulsate with similar rhythms; and today's gospel music strongly reflects its African source.

The musical richness of the environment was immediately apparent to Father Haazen upon arriving in the Congo in 1953. Soon he had assembled forty-five boys, from the ages of nine to fourteen and fifteen teachers, into a choir (with a percussion section added) that has since gained world renown as the Troubadours du Roi Baudouin.

Christmas In the Congo is a sequel to El's best-selling Missa Luba – a mass sung in pure Congolese style by Les Troubadours du Roi Baudouin (ACMEM136CD), a recording that includes their famous Sanctus, the choral theme that was Malcolm McDowell's personal selection which featured to such magical effect in Lindsay Anderson's surrealistic, uncompromising and confrontational 1968 film masterpiece If....

In some countries today, the spirit of Christmas lasts only as long as the season. But from the first song of the Congolese Choir, there is no doubt that their permeating passion is a permanent state of being. In other countries, the dominating mood today is restraint. The Troubadours do not forget that Christmas is a celebration and these songs fully restore the original joyfulness.

This edition also features Folk Tales of the Tribes of Africa as told by the inimitable Eartha Kitt, once described by Orson Welles as "the most exciting woman in the world”. Eartha reads folk tales from southern and central Africa; from the tribes of the Ashanti, the Masai, the Hottentots, from the Efik-Ibibio, Baila, Bavenda and Bakongo. Myths without sentimentality that often reflect the harshness of the environment, a sometimes savage world where one cannot assume the hero will triumph or that wrongs will always be righted.

Bowler Hat & Leather Boots (Personalities Go Pop Art)
In the mid to late fifties, post-war consumerism combined with the advent of both the teenager and television to create a boiling cauldron of inventiveness in the popular arts.

A Strange Affair - The Sixties Recordings
John’s Children were the quintessential cult 60s Mod/Psych band, controversial, sharply dressed and subsequently the stuff of legend.

The band were fronted by Andy Ellison (later with Jet and Radio Stars) and boasted Marc Bolan within their ranks during their short life.

A STRANGE AFFAIR – for the first time – boasts the entire John’s Children output between 1966 and 1970.

The package includes: * Two singles for EMI’s Columbia label: ‘The Love I Thought I’d Found’ and ‘Just What You Want – Just What You Get’. * Four singles for The Who’s label Track Records: ‘Desdemona’, the legendarily withdrawn ‘Midsummer Night's Scene’, ‘Come And Play With Me In The Garden’ and ‘Go-Go Girl’. * Their mock-live album Orgasm! which was belatedly issued on US label White Whale in 1970. * Andy Ellison’s subsequent solo singles ‘It's Been A Long Time’ (Track), ‘Fool From Upper Eden’ (CBS) and ‘You Can't Do That’ (SNB). * Three tracks by pre-John’s Children band The Silence. * A raft of rare and previously unissued alternative versions and mixes.

The 2-CD set has been compiled with help from Andy Ellison. Their manager Simon Napier-Bell will also be contributing to the detailed sleeve-notes, which are based around excerpts from Ellison’s yet-to-be-published autobiography.
