John Andrew Parks - John Andrew Parks

John Andrew Parks
It should have sold a million – but it didn’t! This is your second chance to add one of the best albums ever recorded to your collection.

An emotion-filled voice with a three-octave range, John is affectionately known in Country Music circles as the "Country Eastern” boy. Kenny Rogers said of him:
". . . one of the greatest singer-songwriters I’ve heard in 20 years”;

And Willy Nelson is quoted as saying:
"what a gift . . . what a voice, and I sure do like his songs”.

John Andrew Parks’ road to Nashville took him in many different directions from his Texan birthplace. His first recording contract, signed in Los Angeles at eighteen, proved a false start and he moved on to open a studio in New York City. A song he wrote, ‘Planet Texas’, turned him around again when it caught the ear of Kenny Rogers. Rogers recorded it, it became a gold record and its writer became a Capitol Records artist. This album, recorded in 1990, contains his own version of ‘Planet Texas’.

The album, which Parks co-produced, features a stunning array of supporting talent. Guitarists include British rocker Chris Spedding and multi-talented Californian Andrew Gold, while no less a player than Eagle Joe Walsh adds slide. Beatles sideman Billy Preston weights in on organ, Fernando Saunders (Lou Reed) and Bob Glaub (Warren Zevon, CS&N) are among the bass players, with Bread’s Michael Botts adding drums and percussion. The backing vocalists too, are a star-studded choir: Gerry Beckley (America), JD Souther and Timothy B Schmit (Eagles) and Steve Augeri (Journey) are among the names involved.

The Rise And Fall Of Honesty
Released on 29/03/10. A masterpiece of psychedelic Americana: Maffitt & Davies came with the same batch of oddities on Capitol as Euphoria, Food and Common People. A strange batch to be sure, of orchestral psychpop and folk-rock which is only now being rediscovered and loved... There are many gems on this exceptional album... Bob Dylan’s Just Like A Woman is transformed into heartbreaking orchestrated folkrock... Forest Lawn, the album’s undeservedly failed single, has a distinct Face to Face Kink¹s sound replete with dobro and freaky church organ. Just Like Tom Thumb’s Blues the other Dylan cover on this record takes a Byrds/Everly Brothers vocal harmony approach reminiscent of nothing less than late 60s Dillards on their folk-rock outings. A visionary slice of American music that predates the alt. country/folk boom by a mile -dark lyrics, strings, phasing and tablas abound. In addition to the album, we have a batch of outtakes and single tracks which will take your breath away; all in all a wonderful new discovery.... Our Price: £9.95

Duffy
60's blues fusion musician, writer and singer Duffy Power finally achieved a stand alone LP release in 1973 when an eponymous album hit the racks on the GSF label.

Produced by Adrian Millar, as one of several on going projects in a Production deal set up with partner Andrew Loog Oldham, the Duffy Power LP became to date the only purpose recorded album Duffy has had released in his career.

For this fine collection of Duffy originals Millar brought in a stellar cast of musicians, plus backing singers Dana Gillespie, Pam McKenna, Alexis Korner, and Del Newman for string arrangements, to help bring the songs to life.

The album was well received and Millar continued to be a fan of Duffy's songs, offering a second LP. Sessions were begun with a regular backing band called CWT ( see also the RATS (RPM 322) where they backed singer / songwriter David Kubinec). Sadly only three tracks survive today as yet again another Duffy album project remained on the shelf.

As a follow up to the two successful Anthologies of Duffy's 60's recordings RPM is proud to make available again for the first time in 30 years, and for the first time on CD, the 1973 LP Duffy Power, plus the three recordings from the aborted follow up album. The package includes very personal song by song annotation from Duffy, and more unseen photos from Duffy's archive.

A Force That Cannot Be Named, The Jack Downing Anthology 2CD
Although American, Jack Downing became Sweden’s pioneer of roots rock. In the ‘60s and ‘70s, in his adopted country, he issued a string of singles and an album compiled for the first time on A Force That Cannot Be Named: The Jack Downing Anthology .
The released recordings - including the first-ever reissue of Downings' sole album - are supplemented by unreleased studio demos and live radio appearances, taking in the full story from 1966 to 1974.
Disc one contains all the non LP singles, single versions of tracks, unreleased recordings, 1966-1973. Disc Two has the one LP from 1970, plus a major radio session from 1971 and two tracks from the recording live at the Tonkraft 1974.
After arriving in Sweden in 1963, Downing formed The Other Side in 1965. Their debut single Like a Rollin´ Stone/ Out My Light opens the anthology. Both the Bob Dylan classic and Out My Light are lacerating garage-rocking Americana that became Downings' musical calling-card, setting him up as the leading light of Sweden’s music.
Jack Downing was a force, sweeping everything along with him. A character that could have been in Jack Kerouac's On The Road, he had his own, rambunctious take on Dylan, Hoyt Axton and Merle Haggard.
The constant by Jack’s side was keyboard player Dave Hynes (who also co-wrote with Downing), with legendary Swedish guitarist Kenny Håkansson also along for the ride. The groups Downing had backing him and Hynes were always strong so, in 1974, on Jesse Winchester's Isn't That So, the power remained undiminished.
With a liner note by leading Swedish music writer Per Magnusson, whose article on Jack Downing was published in Ugly Things last year and did much to raise awareness, including input from Dave Hynes, A Force That Cannot Be Named: The Jack Downing Anthology is the definitive statement on this important figure.
