Book A Trip (The Psych Pop Sounds Of Capitol Records) - Various Artists

Book A Trip (The Psych Pop Sounds Of Capitol Records)
Now Sounds raids the Capitol Records vaults in Hollywood for late- 60s Psychedelic Pop/Soft Pop obscurities and unearths a treasure trove of first time- on-CD gems.   Productions by the likes of David Axelrod collide with arrangements by Leon Russell and compositions by David Gates, Neil Young, and many others, proving why Capitol Records was the undisputed leader of pop during this pivotal era.   ALL original Capitol singles, circa 1966 1969, are sourced from Original Master Tapes. Some are presented here in Stereo for the first time ever! The 24-page, full-colour booklet also includes rare, unpublished photos and extensive track-by-track liner notes that feature the participation of many original band members, arrangers, and producers.

Captain Sad and his Ship Of Fools
The Cowsills possessed one of the most pleasing vocal blends in all of popular music. In addition, they created—without proper credit—the blueprint for countless other singing “family bands,” including, the TV-created Partridge Family, who were actually based on The Cowsills. 1968’s Captain Sad And His Ship Of Fools—the band’s third long player for M-G-M—would prove to be a semi-conceptual album, which perfectly blended the group’s earlier helium-filled soft pop buoyancy with mystical psych pop excursions and sunshine pop sensibilities. The thread that tied these elements together was their undeniable vocal dexterity. This first-ever legitimate CD issue of Captain Sad And His Ship Of Fools includes the Top 10 hit “Indian Lake.” Also included are six bonus tracks, including the non-LP Top 50 single “Poor Baby.” Our Price: £9.95

Journey To A Plugged In State Of Mind Electronic Music : 100 Years Of Experimention And Exploitation
The story of electronic music and composition has, in recent decades, become a significant musical legacy. Seen by many as a novelty for a long time, the synthesiser and drum machine derived pop of the late 1970s and early 1980s finally landed the squeals and squelches of solder and circuit y in the mainstream, validating an extensive period of painstaking research and experimentation dating back to the late 19th Century. The connect ion between Edgard Varese, La Roux, Brian Eno, The Human League and The Plastic Cow Goes Moo is a complex and solder-heavy one. A Plugged In State Of Mind explores this long and exhaustive legacy and unearths the greatest albums, experiences and tunes from over a century of electronic sound. From anarchic sound art manifestos of the early 1900s to the three minute radio-friendly hits of the late Twentieth Century, via tape manipulations, WWII surplus gadgetry, synthetic versions of the Beat les and the development and domination of the synthesiser, the sequencer and their descendants which form the basic building blocks of much of the music we listen to today, the history of electronic music is a strange wonderland of cosmic highs and offbeat creativity; a story never less than compelling in its experimentalism and competitiveness. Key works by familiar early innovators such as Schaeffer, Cage, Stockhausen, Henry and Varese are explored, along with modern envelope pushers such as Aphex Twin and Squarepusher and lesser known unsung heroes and key equipment, such as The IBM 7090 Computer and Digital To Sound Transducer and The CSIRAC Computer. Key recordings are used as chronological touchstones for the story, and provide the reader with highly recommended entry points into this sometimes challenging universe. The author’s familiar, joyful style also lends a very accessible air to the subj ect . A companion CD set is also scheduled for release around the time of publication, and we anticipate a good deal of press and enthusiasm for a subject that any music fan or enthusiast for human technological development will find intriguing. Dave Henderson was managing director of Q, Mojo and Kerrang! for ten years. A former Sounds journalist who wrote about everything from Cabaret Voltaire to Can, Depeche Mode to Klaus Schulze, his foray into the history of electronic music has been many years in the making, and the resultant vinyl collection constitutes a legacy to some of the wildest material ever released.

Irish Folk, Trad and Blues: A Secret History
A browse in any music store reveals extensive collections of Irish folk, trad & blues. It is hard to imagine a time when it was otherwise, when musicians rarely had their work committed to any kind of disc. But great pioneers, groundbreakers, lived when the media and recording industry showed scant interest. Accounts of their lives and music survived through reminiscences and good fortune This fascinating history reveals the frustrations and truimphs of trail-blazers before the Irish music industry, and acts like U2 existed. Forgotten heroes and latter day legends interwine with honorary visitors, who took a bit of Ireland with them, like Bob Dylan and Arlo Guthrie But the main thrust of the book concerns the influence of homegrown pioneers from Sweeney's Men in the 1960's to Horslips, De Danann, Rory Gallagher and current groundbreakers like Martin Hayes. All are given their place in the sun. And, rescued from the shadow of Van, the further and long-lingering adventures of Them are finally revealed. Somewhere in between, the shadowy yet almost seminal influences of figures like Anne Briggs (Christy Moore's inspiration) are disclosed. ISBN: 1901447405 NO OF PAGES: 425 Our Price: £14.99
