Chapters And Phases : The Complete Albums 1973 – 1975
Released on 28/09/09 . Lagos-based trio BLO shook the Nigerian scene to its foundations with their their Afro-rooted rock music. Their live debut in December 1972 found 10,000 new converts chanting we want BLO over and over again. Their Afro-delia looked far afield for inspiration: drummer Laolu Akintobi said we were listening to Grand Funk Railroad and The Isley Brothers and thought we should be able to do this in an African way. A further inspiration wasGinger Baker for whom both Akintobi and BLO sBerkley Jones played and toured with in 1971.

BLO’s first two albums, 1973’sChapter One and 1975’sPhase 2, are amazing fusions of traditional rhythms and American psychedelia that evoke a spacier Tago Mago -era Can. Original copies of each sell for £200 and up. Chapter One’shighlights include the psychedelic instrumental Miss Sagit with its snakey fuzz guitar. Equally far out is Chant To Mother Earth, where a hypnotic three-note bass line tops shuffling drums, choppy guitar and distant chanted vocals. Phase 2’swah wah guitar and funk takes their Afro-delia onto the dance floor. Press reports of the time describe BLO as Africa’s first rock band. They had an electronic cosmic sound that deserves total world-wide attention

Dino Valente
A fascinating enigma of the San Francisco psychedelic scene, Valente is most famed as the author of the song Get Together. This definitive '60s love-and-peace anthem was recorded on the Jefferson Airplane's first album, and taken into the Top Ten by the Youngbloods. Valente was an original member of Quicksilver Messenger Service, and his one off solo single in 1964, a folk pop song called Birdses became the inspiration for Gene Clark to name his new band the Birdses, amended of course, to the Byrds, because of his admiration for Valente's single

In 1968, following a spell in jail for drug possession, he got a deal with Epic Records, recording an album produced by Bob Johnston (most famous for overseeing much of Bob Dylan's classic '60s output). It was idiosyncratic even within the psychedelic community. Valente sang elliptical, stream-of-consciousness hippyisms without much in the way of narrative, beginning, or end, but with an evocative lyricism. The accompaniment is mostly stripped down guitar playing pleasingly haunting minor folk-jazz acoustic chords, swelled by wads of studio reverb.

In March this year, Mojo's 67 Lost Albums You Must Own article included this album:

'On leaving Quicksilver Messenger Service after changing his name to avoid the taxman, the chemically deranged but incredibly charming Dino Valente knocked off this beautifully elongated acoustic ramble, then promptly disappeared. Emotional, aching and gloriously daft in places, its stream of lo-fi consciousness spawned generations of bedroom strumming by moody suicidal peaceniks. All a bit intense on the surface, it's wonderfully engaging even today. (DH)'

RPM make this album available once more in a package with an insightful essay by Nina Antonia. In the current climate of Devendra Banhart, James Yorkeston et al, Valente sounds neither out of place nor out of time.

Eat it
For fans of bluesy, hard-charging boogie rock, the legendary band Humble Pie is an icon. Current artists such as the Black Crowes invoke its name and that of its leader Steve Marriott with nothing less than reverence. That Humble Pie was co-founded by Peter Frampton, enjoying a notable renaissance of late, provides even greater impetus for these new reissues of the bands classic albums
In 1969, Marriott, who had left Small Faces, and Frampton, formerly of the Herd, joined with ex-Spooky Tooth bassist Greg Ridley and drummer Jerry Shirley. Humble Pie's first single, ‘Natural Born Woman’ (aka ‘Natural Born Boogie’) hit the U.K. Top 10 and led to its debut album, As Safe As Yesterday Is. Humble Pie live, however, was explosive, loud and raucous. Frampton left after the tour, replaced by Dave "Clem" Clempson, A year later, Humble Pie disbanded. Marriott and Shirley briefly reformed the group in the '80s but accidents and ill health plagued Marriott and the band.
The album titleEat Itmeans "Dig it", Each side of the original double album was different: Side 1 featuresSteve Marriott pennedrock and roll; Side 2 has classic R&B covers; Side 3 is a collection of acoustic Steve Marriott songs; finally Side 4 features Humble Pie live in concert.
This album showcases the dynamic diversity and talent of Steve Marriott's gritty bluesy vocals with some funky soul mixed in throughout along with straight ahead blistering rockers. The band is right on and they deliver an extremely energetic powerhouse combination on this double album that overall ranks with their best

The singles collection 1975-83
The first ever round up of all the singles, A’s and B’s, that the legend that is Ian Hunter issued for CBS and Chrysalis.

Originally known as the voice and face of Mott The Hoople, Hunter split in 1975 and started a solo career that is fast approaching its 40th year.

From 1975’s ‘Once Bitten Twice Shy’(a UK No.14 hit) right through until late 83’s ‘Somethin’s Goin’ On’, this 29 track release has all of Ian’s 45’s including many versions that were specially edited from LP length.

The sadly missed Mick Ronson plays on a good few of the tracks and other contributions come from the likes of Queen, members of Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band including Clarence Clemons, John Cale of Velvet Underground and The Clash’s Mick Jones.

The song ‘Ships’ later gave (of all people) Barry Manilow a USA Top 10 hit whilst ‘Once Bitten Twice Shy’ was taken into the American Top 5 by Great White.


"Essential acquisition for both the faithful and newer devotees - and there are many of both". 4/5* (Kris Needs, Record Collector August 2012)
