Vinegar Joe
Long overdue reissue of the self-titled debut album from the seminal British R&B band, Vinegar Joe. Vinegar Joe were fronted by the vocal talents of Robert Palmer and Elkie Brooks, who formed the band after the demise of the experimental jazz rockists, Dada. The album was originally released in 1972 on Island Records. This CD includes one bonus track "Speed Queen Of Ventura", the flip side of the single taken from this album "Never Met A Dog". The CD booklet features sleeve notes and UK discography, including images of the 3 albums that the band released before their split in 1973. Elkie Brooks went to become for a period the UK's best selling female artist, enjoying very successful charting albums in the 70's and 80's. Her reputation continues as much loved and respected artist. Robert Palmer also went solo after the band's split. He recorded many successful albums for Island Records before enjoying a worldwide smash with "Addicted To Love" from the 80's multi million selling album "Riptide". Sadly Palmer suffered a heart attack and died in Paris in 2003.

Nightout / Spirit of St Louis 2CD
EllenFoley gained high public recognition singing the duet with Meat Loaf on the hit single ‘Paradise by the Dashboard Light’ from the 1977 album Bat out of Hell.Although Karla DeVitois featured on themusic video, DeVito is lip syncing to Foley's vocals. Her debut album Night Outwas released in 1979; the album's single "What's A Matter Baby" was a minor hit, reaching No.92 on the US Charts.The album itself peaked at No.152, and was produced by an Hunter and Mick Ronson. Foley recorded a memorable duet with Ian Hunter in 1980, ‘We Gotta Get Outta Here’. Her creative relationship with Hunter also led her to singing backing vocals on the Iron City House rockers' 1980 album Have a Good Time but Get out Alive!, produced by Hunter, Ronson, and The E Street Band's Steven Van Zandt. She can also be heard on the 1980Blue Öyster Cult album Mirrors singing on the title cut, and also on The Clash album Sandinista! (also released in 1980), in the songs ‘Hitsville UK’ and ‘Corner Soul’, and on the unreleased track ‘Blonde Rock 'n' Roll’. All four members of The Clash appeared on her second album The Spirit of St. Louis in 1981, and Mick Jones and Joe Strummerco-wrote a number of songs for the album.Jones produced the album, which also featured members of The Blockheads, and peaked at No.137 on the US charts. The Clash's hit song ‘Should I Stay or Should I Go’, written and sung by Jones, was about the turbulent relationship he shared with Foley at the time. This timely release was done in conjunction with Ellen who has provided fascinating insights into the recording of both albums. Both albums re-mastered from original tapes and contain notes by Malcolm Dome
