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

Long Ago Last Summer 1959-61
Burt Bacharach revolutionised popular songwriting, employing a previously unimagined technical sophistication that would find full expression in the sixties when with an astonishing run of unforgettable hits, he and his lyricist partner Hal David, ruled the pop charts.

Bacharach won the respect of everyone from Brian Wilson to Bill Evans to Frank Zappa, but his early years had been ones of struggle and frustrating compromise. This compilation continues where the 2009 El Records edition, "Burt Bacharach - The First Book of Songs" (ACMEM166CD), left off and charts Bacharach's course as we move into the more open sixties landscape.

The set comprises an eclectic range of styles that have character, are fun and are thoroughly eccentric at times. Standout tracks include Gloria Lambert's slinky romantic space-age liason, ‘Moon Man’; Dick Van Dyke's, early version of ‘Three Wheels On My Wagon’; Paul Hampton's whimsical continental-sounding ‘Creams’; ‘Somebody Else's Sweetheart’, a big hit on the Northern Soul Scene for The Wanderers; The Four Coins' soaring, spirited ‘Miracle of St Marie’ and ‘Baby It's You’ by the Shirelles, an R&B and mainstream pop smash with a vocal arrangement adopted by The Beatles for the version that would be an integral part of their early repertoire.

Press:-


"More eclectic and less distinctive than his later work, this collection of Burt Bacharach songs - most with lyrics by his long-term collaborator Hal David - is nevertheless a delightful collection from the turn of the 1960's, cramming no fewer than 33 songs onto a single CD.
