The Hi-De-Ho Man - Cab Calloway

The Hi-De-Ho Man
Cab Calloway. International Jazz Hall Of Famer. Broadway actor. Professor of Jive, whose dictionaries of African-American slang were the official reference works in the New York Library for decades. Bandleader and King Of Hi-De-Ho - indeed His Hi-De-Highness of Ho-De-Ho - whose immense popularity allowed him to enjoy a six decade recording career, despite the fact that his biggest hits from the 1930s referenced the Harlem drug culture. His signature song "Minnie The Moocher", which first topped the Pop best-seller chart at the height of the jazz age in 1931 and last climbed the R&B chart 47 years later at the height of the disco era, two years before Cab donned his tails to perform the song memorably on screen in "The Blues Brothers". Revived countless times afterwards in films on both the big screen ("The Mask") and small ("Jeeves & Wooster") and ads galore, inspiring Joe Jackson to release a whole LP as a tribute, titled "Jumpin' Jive" after Cab's massive 1939 hit song of the same name.

Cab Calloway who became a hero to millions of British kids in the mid 1980s with his Hula Hoop adverts and is introduced to a new generation of American kids with his appearance in Janet Jackson's "Alright" video in 1989. This compilation, chosen from the best of Cab's 1940s swing era output, includes the powerful 1942 recut of "Minnie" along with his R&B chart hits "The Honeydripper" and "The Calloway Boogie" and covers of big hits like "Shot Gun Boogie", "The Jungle King" and "One For My Baby". Also included is an uber-rare soundtrack recording of "Geechee Joe" from the 1943 blockbuster movie "Stormy Weather". THE must-have collection of His Hi-de-Highness, this is a timely release as a new generation and a total must for all fans of authentic Harlem Swing, and the amazing wordplay of the master… CAB CALLOWAY!!!!

Unfinished Business
Cherry Red is proud to release the sixth solo album by Status Quo keyboard player and multi‐ instrumentalist Andy Bown. "Unfinished Business” features ten new tracks and is Andy's first solo album in over 30 years. "Unfinished Business” is produced by Mike Paxman and features contributions from the likes of Henri Spinetti (Eric Clapton, George Harrison, Katie Melua), Mick Rogers (Manfred Mann’s Earth Band) and Trevor Bolder (David Bowie, Uriah Heep).

Andy continued an intermittent solo recording career, whilst starting to work with Status Quo in 1976, first as a session musician, and then as a full time member, recording "Rockin' All Over The World” with the band in 1978. He plays keyboards, guitar and harmonica with Status Quo to this day and is an integral part of the band, having co‐penned many well‐known Quo songs, most prominently the group's hits "Whatever You Want”, "Again and Again” and the 1988 hit "Burning Bridges” which, re‐recorded, went on to reach No.1 in the charts as Manchester United Football Club’s anthem.

Andy has a rich musical heritage, starting from his sixties bands The Preachers and The Herd, where he gave the talented teenager Peter Frampton his first job, on through an endless list of recording sessions with artists such as Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Halliday, Dusty Springfield, Cilla Black, Tim Hardin, Pink Floyd, Roger Waters, Lesley Duncan, Paul McCartney, Carly Simon and many, many more, whilst part‐forming the ultimate 70’s pop‐rock band, Judas Jump (opening The Isle of Wight Festival 1970) and also appearing with the cult folk band Storyteller. He played keyboards for Peter Frampton in the early 1970s, switching to bass for several tours after Rick Wills departed the band. Andy was the surrogate Roger Waters during Pink Floyd’s ‘The Wall’ tour of 1980 and 81 and he also played Pink Floyd's "The Final Cut” album and Roger Waters’ subsequent release Pros and Cons of Hitchhiking”. Andy’s first solo album "Gone To My Head” was released in 1972.


"Every song here features top-class musicianship and a tune you can hum.”  

-William Pinfold (Record Collector – October 2011)

Fuzzy Duck
Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce a newly remastered edition of the 1971 album by the legendary heavy Progressive rock outfit FUZZY DUCK.

Featuring GARTH WATT ROY (guitar, vocals), ROY SHARLAND (organ), MICK HAWKSWORTH (bass) and PAUL FRANCIS (drums), the band signed to Gordon Mills’ MAM label, recording an album and two singles for the imprint. Although their records failed to sell at the time of release, FUZZY DUCK’s recorded output became highly sought after by collectors throughout the world, with their heavy organ driven progressive rock winning over new listeners in the ensuing years.

This Esoteric Recordings reissue has been newly remastered from the original master tapes, includes four bonus tracks taken from the two singles issued by the band and features a booklet that fully restores all original album artwork with a new essay.


"as a result of only 500 original copies being pressed, this record’s reputation precedes it – and it’s mostly worthy of the hype." (Record Collector - July 2012)

A Fistful Of Statins
•    LOS PACAMINOS have been treading the boards and bars around the UK and elsewhere for well over a decade now, plying their infectious Tex-Mex brew with good humour and plenty of talent.

•    The seven-piece band are fronted by PAUL YOUNG, one of our biggest solo stars of the 1980s, who’d first made his name with two other notable live outfits, the Streetband and Q-Tips.

•    22 years after forming in 1992 and a decade after their debut album, Los Pacaminos return with a long-awaited follow-up!

•    A Fistful Of Statins boasts the band’s trademark mix of border, Tex-Mex and Americana music that blends Mexico’s Mariachi and Norteno styles with southern American country/blues. Highly recommended for fans of Ry Cooder, Flaco Jimenez, The Texas Tornados or Los Lobos!

•    The band will be touring to support this release, not least with a launch gig on 28 June at The Half Moon, Putney. Get those margaritas in!
