Love Me, Love My Friends - Paul Jones

Love Me, Love My Friends
Our second CD centres round the 1967 album "Love Me
Love My Friends". Jones chose songs which all featured people's names in
the title, and musically it was a richly varied selection from the folk
rock of Dylan's "Lonesome Death Of Hattie Carroll", through the rock
& roll of "Boney Moronie" and "Charlie Brown" to the country blues
of "Nosher Burns" (this was a cover of Leadbelly's "Booger Burns", but
when EMI heard Jones' version entitled "Bugger Burns" they made him cut a
new vocal using the word Nosher instead! We've included the original
and censored vocal takes here). Jones also managed to include a
couple of his own songs for the first time, something producer John
Burgess had not allowed on the first album. The bonus cuts include
singles tracks and six unissued recordings from 1967, all cut for EMI.
Keep an eye on the new release pages for details of the follow-up
releases.

Crucifix in a Horseshoe; Paul Jones Collection vol. 4

Released on 27/09/10. A Vertigo label collectable is the basis of our fourth collection of Paul Jones recordings, an intriguing mix of country, jazz and blues rock, from the progressive era. Recorded in the US with producer Ted Cooper a fine array of musicians backed Jones (essentially the collective who recorded as White Cloud) on a mix of originals and some notable covers. Highlights include Loudon Wainwright s Motel Blues and Artie Resnick’s The Mighty Ship


As a bonus, discovered in the tape vaults, we have six surviving tracks recorded in the UK at Morgan studios for a commissioned follow up but which remained unreleased. This time UK jazz rockers backed Paul, including Dave MacCrae , Gary Boyle, Roy Babbington. Jones may not be such a fan of his own lyrics today but he remains rightly in favour of the music, and a truly engaging theatrical vocal performance throughout will please his legions of fans. RPM s previous three volumes of the Paul Jones collection series continue to sell well, ten years after first release.

Come Into My Music Box
Paul Jones left Manfred Mann as they were high in
the charts with their second No. 1 hit single, Pretty Flamingo,
determined to pursue a solo career not only in music but also on the
stage and in films. His acting successes and his later TV and Radio work
has tended to overshadow the music Jones recorded during the latter
half of the 60's and early 70's - recordings which show just how
talented and versatile a vocalist (and songwriter) Jones is - from r'n'b
to Pop, Rock'n'Roll to Soul and Blues. The Paul Jones Collection
aims to bring together all the studio recordings made by Jones during
the era. Each major album will be accompanied by the hits, EPs, singles
and unreleased recordings. Paul's candid comments on the sessions are
part of a comprehensive sleevenote, illustrated with pictures and
memorabilia.

Blue Gene / Meets The Fair Young Ladies Of Folkland
Comprises two original albums, including Pitney’s first UK Top 5 hit ‘Twenty-Four Hours From Tulsa’ and its follow-up, the Jagger/Richards-penned ‘That Girl Belongs To Yesterday’.
Booklet features the original Musicor album sleeves and updated liner notes by Pitney authority Roger Dopson.
Superior sound quality throughout.
GENE PITNEY was one of the most prolific and successful international artists of the 1960s, releasing some twenty-five albums (plus a further dozen or so "Greatest Hits” sets) and around thirty-five singles.
In the 1990s, Sequel Records paired up Gene’s original LPs as 2-on-1s, plus bonus tracks and all mastered from first-generation tapes. Pitney himself was delighted with the results. Sadly Gene died in 2006 whilst touring the UK, by which time these 2-on-1s had long been deleted. However, thanks to RPM, these well-regarded compilations are once again available.
Released in November 1963, Blue Gene was Gene’s fourth US album and the first to be released in the UK where it reached No.7 in April 1964. The plug track ‘Tulsa’ was complemented by covers of popular standards (‘I’ll Be Seeing You’, ‘Answer Me, My Love’) and new material (‘Yesterday’s Hero’, ‘I Can’t Run Away’). The UK edition differed by one track; ‘Take It Like A Man’ was the closer in place of ‘House Without Windows’.
Following hard on its heels that December came Meets The Fair Young Ladies Of Folkland, a "concept” album which marked a departure from the usual hit-driven formula. In an attempt to woo the teen market, the album was hastily repackaged as Dedicated To My Teen Queens and remains one of Gene’s rarest albums. Gene’s second UK Top 10 single, ‘That Girl Belongs To Yesterday’, is included here by way of a bonus.

I’m Gonna Be Strong / Looking Thru The Eyes Of Love
Comprises two original albums, including four UK Top 10 hits: ‘I’m Gonna Be Strong’, ‘I Must Be Seeing Things’, ‘Looking Thru The Eyes Of Love’, ‘Just One Smile’ plus the LP version of ‘That Girl Belongs To Yesterday’ and bonus tracks.
Booklet features the original Musicor album sleeves and updated liner notes by Pitney authority Roger Dopson.
Superior sound quality throughout.
GENE PITNEY was one of the most prolific and successful international artists of the 1960s, releasing some twenty-five albums (plus a further dozen or so "Greatest Hits” sets) and around thirty-five singles.

Sadly Gene died in 2006 whilst touring the UK, by which time these 2-on-1s had long been deleted. However, thanks to RPM, these well-regarded compilations are once again available.
Released in November 1964, Gene’s fifth album It Hurts To Be In Love was retitled for the British market as I’m Gonna Be Strong after the single which was then a hit and would peak at No.2 The UK LP also included ‘I’m Gonna Find Myself A Girl’ which had been withdrawn as a single in the US and likewise omitted from It Hurts...
Similarly, when I Must Be Seeing Things was released in July 1965, its UK counterpart was titled after Gene’s latest Top 5 hit ‘Looking Thru The Eyes Of Love’. Again, there were track variations: ‘If I Never Get To Love You’ replaced ‘There’s No Living Without Your Loving’ on the UK pressing, and a UK EP included an extra in ‘The Rising Tide Of Love’. These two recordings, together with ‘Last Chance To Turn Around’ (US No.13), are included here.
