World Cinema In The 60s: Volume One - Various Artists

World Cinema In The 60s: Volume One
    For cinema, the early sixties were years of miracles.
The era saw a brilliant explosion of film talent throughout the world.  Every country found its cinematic identity; from France and Italy to India and Japan, Poland and Czechoslovakia to Sweden and Denmark to North and South America, a new generation of directors sprang almost from nowhere with a shared sense of discovery to challenge the conformity of the 1950s and the sexual and political taboos of their age.

    The vanguard of this revolution included Jean-Luc Godard and François Truffaut, who together spearheaded the Nouvelle vague; their fellow countrymen, Agnes Varda, Chris Marker and Alain Resnais, designated the "Left Bank” of the New Wave, along with the precocious young Stanley Kubrick and the veteran American maverick Orson Welles, almost two decades on from Citizen Kane and long exiled from Hollywood.

    Chris Marker’s celebrated short film, La Jetée is a meditation on time and memory, a haunting, poetic work consisting almost entirely of still photographs. This tale of a World War III survivor travelling back and forth in time was claimed by Terry Gilliam as the inspiration for his film, Twelve Monkeys.

    Jules et Jim was embraced the world over as the symbol of the New Wave, a stylish love triangle that catapulted Jeanne Moreau to international stardom and established Truffaut's reputation beyond question.

    Godard's Une femme est une femme and Vivre sa vie are virtual homages to his wife, the Danish actress Anna Karina, and in both she is gorgeous, spontaneous and alive. The former is a loving deconstruction of the Hollywood musical, while in the latter charts a struggling young actresses' decline into prostitution.

    Lolita and Dr. Strangelove are regarded to be the first really complete Stanley Kubrick film experiences. With Lolita, he had admired Nelson Riddle's musical arrangements for Frank Sinatra on the album, In the Wee Small Hours and commissioned him to write a similarly lush score, while with Strangelove the director made ironic and memorable use of Vera Lynn's We'll Meet Again, during the films' final scenes, deploying the song on a kind of harmony with a montage of atomic explosions.

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.
