Alone Together
One time Kim Fowley protégé, one time Spencer Davis guitar tech Dave Mason was a key and founder member of psych/pop/funk/soul/fusion legends Traffic. The writer of many of the band's early classics including the timeless and much-covered Feelin Alright? Mason was the first to leave due to the classic 'musical differences. Moving to the US, his first solo album was one of the many recordings to come out of the Leon Russell/Delaney & Bonnie axis in1969/1970. Alone Together contains excellent, tightly constructed pop songs, redolent of his singles for Traffic, albeit extended in the then new style, built on a fat bed of acoustic guitars with tasteful electric guitar accents. Mason's vocals are embellished with harmonies from Rita Coolidge, Claudia Lennear and Delaney & Bonnie. Besides the hit Only You Know and I Know , (also a hit for Delaney & Bonnie) highlights include the bouncy gospel-inflected Waitin' On You and the banjo-bejeweled Just a Song . Look at You Look at Me and the wonderfully wah-wahed Shouldn't Have Took More Than You Gave are reminiscent of Traffic, whose drummer, Jim Capaldi is among the all-star cast assembled here.

COVERAGE ON RELEVANT WEBSITES & FANZINES    

ESOTERIC RECORDINGS are pleased to issue the first ever OFFICIAL UK CD edition of the self titled album by FIELDS. When the first line-up of RARE BIRD folded in early 1971, keyboard player GRAHAM FIELD formed this outfit with bass player, vocalist and guitarist ALAN BARRY and KING CRIMSON drummer ANDY McCULLOCH.   Although the band failed to emulate the commercial success of FIELD’s previous group, the sole album they recorded was a magnificent example of British Progressive Rock.   Much sought after for many years, this official ESOTERIC CD edition has been re-mastered from the original master tapes and features an essay by Sid Smith and interview with Graham Field.

The Complete Stiff Recordings 1980-1981

· Fronted by Mancunian singer-songwriter Clive Gregson, Crewe-based band Any Trouble were signed to Stiff Records in 1980 and touted by the music press as the next Elvis Costello & The Attractions.

 

· Any Trouble’s debut album Where Are All The Nice Girls was critically acclaimed at the time. The band followed with a second studio album, Wheels In Motion (1981). Stiff also circulated a promotional in-concert album, Live At The Venue, which only enjoyed a commercial release in Germany. The band then signed with EMI America before disbanding at the end of 1984.

 

· Compiled with help from Clive Gregson and boasting the involvement of all the band members, this definitive collection offers the band’s complete Stiff recordings, as a comprehensive ‘Early Years’ package of the band’s musical history across 1980 and 1981.

 

· In addition to the three albums, the package also includes myriad non-album A-sides and B-sides, including their pre-Stiff debut single ‘Yesterday’s Girls’. Many of these tracks are extremely hard-to-find on CD now and Live At The Venue makes its CD debut (apart from a German CD reissue on Line in 1988).

 

· Clive Gregson later launched a productive collaboration with Christine Collister. In 2007, Any Trouble reunited with a brand new album and Clive continues to enjoy critical and creative success as a singer-songwriter to this day, releasing his thirteenth solo album This Is Now in May 2013.

Worthy: CD/DVD 2 Disc Limited Edition
THE BRAND NEW STUDIO ALBUM FROM LEGENDARY AMERICAN GRAMMY NOMINATED VOCALIST BETTYE LaVETTE
PRODUCED BY GRAMMY NOMINATED PRODUCER JOE HENRY
A 2 DISC LIMITED DIGIPACK EDITION WITH A DVD (NTSC / REGION FREE) OF BETTYE LaVETTE’s CONCERT AT THE JAZZ CAFÉ IN LONDON IN JULY 2014 

Bettye LaVette is a true legend with a musical career spanning over 50 years, she is now rightly recognized as one of the finest vocalists and one of the great interpreters of song. In Bettye’s amazing career she has performed for Barack Obama at his 2009 Presidential inauguration, (duetting with Jon Bon Jovi) and sang a moving interpretation of "Love Reign O’er Me” at the Kennedy Center Honors tribute to The Who (which brought Pete Townshend to tears and stunned Roger Daltrey). Her discography spans five decades, but it is within the past decade that she has finally been recognized as one of America’s finest vocal talents.

In 2005 she recorded the album I’ve Got My Own Hell to Raise, which was produced by Grammy nominated producer Joe Henry, (hailed as one of the best albums of the year by many critics). Joe Henry now reflects; "I’ve Got My Own Hell To Raise confirmed Bettye’s standing as a soul and blues singer nearly without peer, and evidenced for many what had for so long been hidden in plain sight. No matter the public perception, Bettye refused the term "comeback,” of course, in regard to her newfound recognition, owing to the simple fact that she had gone nowhere from which returning was necessary: she’d been here all along”. Two more fine albums followed, both of which were nominated for Grammy Awards: The Scene Of The Crime in 2007 and Interpretations: The British Rock Songbook in 2010.

Now, after almost a decade, the legend that is Bettye LaVette has teamed up with producer Joe Henry once again and the result is a stunning new album, Worthy, featuring 11 songs composed by writers such as Mick Jagger & Keith Richards, Bob Dylan, John Lennon & Paul McCartney, Mickey Newbury, Beth Nielsen Chapman & Mary Gauthier(who wrote the album title track) and Joe Henry among others. As Joe Henry states; "With every song on Worthy, Bettye finds the thread that first will unravel it. Then she stitches it all back together until it fits her taut frame and fierce stride, until it bends to meet her; until each song’s story is somehow, miraculously, telling her own”. Worthy is a supreme achievement from a uniquely gifted performer. This special limited edition of "Worthy” includes a DVD (NTSC / Region Free) of a wonderful set by Bettye and her superb band at The Jazz Café in Camden Town, London on July 15th 2014, featuring the very best of Bettye’s classic interpretations.

Please Note: This title is released 26th January 2015 and will not be dispatched until this date.
