Don't Let Your Son Grow Up To Be A Cowboy (Unreleased Recordings 1981-1982) - Jazzateers

Don't Let Your Son Grow Up To Be A Cowboy (Unreleased Recordings 1981-1982)
•    Still active to this day, Glasgow band the Jazzateers made their name with an album and single for Rough Trade Records in 1983.

•    Don’t Let Your Son Grow Up To Be A Cowboy boasts the band’s earlier, long-thought-lost sessions for Postcard Records, combining nearly two albums overseen by Postcard boss and Jazzateers’ manager Alan Horne.

•    'Wasted' was scheduled to be the final Postcard single (81-14) and was produced by Orange Juice’s Edwyn Collins.

•    Although it only existed for a couple of years, Postcard has been hugely influential and was recently the subject of a critically acclaimed book by Simon Goddard, Simply Thrilled.

•    The album has been overseen by current Jazzateer Douglas MacIntyre (of The Creeping Bent Organisation).

•    The title and artwork of this amazing compilation hark back to work-in-progress ideas during the band’s time with Postcard.

N.B. This album is released August 25 and will not be dispatched before this date.

It's Alright With Me- Expanded Edition
With a career spanning more than 4 decades and numerous appearances in the charts and the music award circuit, Grammy Hall Of Fame inductee, Patti LaBelle sealed her fate as one of the great American Divas. Patti LaBelle started singing at church and later formed a singing group called Patti Labelle and the Bluebelles, later know as LaBelle. Patti and her group enjoyed many chart hits during their 15 years together including their number one, gold selling single Lady Marmalade.

In 1979 Patti LaBelle released her 3rd solo effort for Epic Records. It’s Alright With Me enlisted the production and writing genius of Grammy Award Winner, Skip Scarborough. The album had a long run of chart success and reached #33 on the US R&B charts along with the albums title song scoring a top 40 R&B position. The R&B/disco stomper Music Is My Way Of Life soon became an ultimate disco classic. BBR is proud to present this wonderfully repackaged and newly remastered expanded edition of Patti LaBelle’s, It’s Alright With Me complete with extensive liner notes with interviews and added bonus tracks.

America The Beautiful/Does The Sun Really Shine On The Moon
Gary McFarland blazed through the American music landscape of the 1960's and disappeared almost as fast as he appeared. Possessed of a brilliant melodic gift, he quickly distinguished himself on jazz projects with Gerry Mulligan, Stan Getz and Bill Evans and saw his first taste of wide popularity with the 'soft samba' album, where he explored the music of The Beatles with such sidemen as Antonio Carlos Jobim, Kenny Burrell, and Willie Bobo.the jazz Cognescenti, however, were not impressed, tending in those days to rather look down on popular music. Nonetheless, McFarland was a man of many faces and throughout the sixties he never looked back; scoring a jazz ballet, writing commercial jingles to pay the rent, and composing his largest orchestral work in the form of the inexplicably still unreleased score for the David Niven, David Hemmings Sharon Tate occult film '13' (otherwise known as 'eye of the devil'). By 1969 McFarland, like the United States, was in transition. having alienated his original uptight jazz fans, and not yet having been discovered by the long-haired crowd, he threw all his cards on the table in what was and remains his greatest work; 'America the Beautiful' is a stunningly original jazz-rock tone poem about the state of the country, circa 1968. With the environment in shambles, a seemingly endless war raging, and corporate greed running amuck, Gary expressed his outrage the only way he knew how: through music. It barely needs to be said this album is as relevant today as it was then. McFarland's trademark mix of gallows humour and sadness dominates this album, from the song titles ('suburbia-two poodles and a plastic Jesus') to the music itself. Listen and try not to be moved by the slash & burn guitar of Eric Gale on 'on this site..' or Snooky Young's mournful trumpet solo on 'last rites for the promised land', which was originally composed in 1963 for 4 black girls killed in an Alabama church bombing. After the intensity of 'America the Beautiful' this edition moves into a more relaxed mood, the flipside of McFarland's musical coin, 'Does the sun really shine on the moon?' a buoyant excursion through the pop charts of the day, it is suffused with his trademark vibes and vocalise including the super-funky flea market with its multi-tracked vibe solo, originally composed as a jingle for fresca(!) Moving into the seventies, McFarland would steer ever more towards pop, gaining confidence as a producer in the studio and releasing two albums ('today' & 'butterscotch rum)' which remain, perhaps, the two last great undiscovered pop classics of that era. It all came crashing down on November 2, 1971 when, celebrating the end of a particularly gruelling recording session, McFarland ingested a drink with a fatal overdose of liquid methadone. Some say he was the victim of a malicious prank, others that it was misadventure (McFarland was not without his share of personal demons). Whatever happened, it ended a remarkable musical career. He was 38 years old. Our Price: £9.95
