Full Circle - Roger Nichols And The Small Circle Of Friends

Full Circle

Roger Nichols co-authored some of the best known and biggest selling pop hits of the twentieth century, including "We’ve Only Just Begun,” "Rainy Days And Mondays,” and "Let Me Be The One” by The Carpenters.

His compositions have also been recorded by Frank Sinatra, Barbra Streisand, Three Dog Night, The Monkees, and literally thousands of others. Before all that, he recorded what is today considered one of the most coveted of Sunshine Pop LPs, 1968’s Roger Nichols And The Small Circle Of Friends.

Fast forward 40 years(!) and Roger and Co. (which also includes MURRAY MACLEOD of THE PARADE) have emerged once again to offer up what will assuredly be considered another milestone in song-craft: Full Circle!

This first-ever CD issue outside of Japan of Full Circle includes songs written by Roger in his late ’60s heyday (EIGHT of which were co-authored by PAUL WILLIAMS, including their brand-new collaboration, "Look Around.”) If that’s not enough, the CD is supplemented by five EXCLUSIVE ’60s-era Roger Nichols demos, NEVER BEFORE ISSUED ANYWHERE!

Singles A’s & B’s Vol.1 1964-1966

Shout! Records is delighted to present the first CD series to collate the singles recordings by Joe Tex from his hit years on the Dial label and their Atlantic licensee, chronologically sequenced, and featuring the A-side and B-side of each 45. On this, Volume One, covering the years 1964 to 1966.

Joe was already a veteran of a decade of recordings on King, Ace and earlier Dial releases when producer Buddy Killen took him to Muscle Shoals, Alabama, in October 1964 to record ‘Hold What You've Got'. The disc was a crossover smash hit, and the rest is history. Each of the 11 A-sides in this collection reached the R&B top 20 and the US national Hot 100, providing a lasting impression of infectious mix of humour and soul philosophy that graced the music of Joe Tex.

Although there have been numerous CD re-issues of Joe's music, all to date have been either selective ‘greatest hits' collections or have re-packaged various albums, so this is a ground-breaking ‘first' in chronicling the illustrious career of the man dubbed ‘The Clown Prince of Soul', Joe Tex.

First collection of Joe Tex singles in sequence of releases. Features all the A-sides and B-sides & 11 R&B top 20 hits including two chart-toppers. Each single was also a Billboard Hot 100 hit. Booklet features track by track annotation.

Listen!

Following a run of ten Top 40 singles in the span of two years, Gary Lewis and The Playboys hit a career crossroads in 1967. Called on to actively serve in the Vietnam War, Gary Lewis used his brief leaves from the service to maintain some semblance of a recording career, recording as a solo artist. The result was his late 67 psych-pop gem 'Listen!', arranged by Jack Nitzsche.

Featuring his best recordings to date, 'Listen' Includes the spellbinding hit Jill (written by Happy Together songsmiths Garry Bonner and Alan Gordon). The deluxe, full-colour booklet also includes rare, unpublished photos and extensive liner notes by noted pop historian Andrew Sandoval, featuring the participation of Gary Lewis.

A Midsummer's Day Dream (Expanded Edit ion ion)

Mark Eric Malmborg (along with arranger and ex-Animal Vic Briggs) constructed this beautiful album, a unique pastiche of Four Freshman/Beach Boys sensibilities coupled with wistful melancholia. Defiantly soft, 1969 s A Midsummer’s Day Dream caught the tail end of Los Angeles 60s pop innocence perfectly, just as it slipped into infinity. 2002 s CD reissue of A Midsummer’s Day Dream (itself now out of print) caught the soft pop collector s world entirely off guard: Very few were aware of the LP s existence, and the reaction was united: A masterpiece was unleashed and a new generation of daydreamers was born! The result was glowing reviews in Mojo and Uncut, a Japanese edition, as well as soaring prices for the original long out-of-print vinyl pressing. This Expanded Edition of the stone classic is supplemented by 16 bonus tracks recorded around the same time as the LP. 8 of these bonus tracks culled from master tapes Mark recently discovered Are Exclusive To This Expanded Edition! The full-colour, 20-page booklet also includes Exclusive, previously unpublished photos, and Updated and Expanded liner notes that feature the participation of Mark Eric himself. Now Sounds, the new imprint from Cherry Red, was established by Steve Stanley, producer of over 50 Rev-Ola titles
