Classic Entertainment - Variety Acts And Turns Of The Early 1930s (Special Two Disc Edition) - Various Artists

Classic Entertainment - Variety Acts And Turns Of The Early 1930s (Special Two Disc Edition)
VARIETY ACTS AND TURNS OF THE EARLY 1930s   
A comprehensive six hours plus double disc celebration of the glorious golden age of British Variety, from the earliest era of sound cinema.  This special extra length edition contains the very best performers and singers from radio, music hall and the theatre, who are seen here making their fledgling forays into the ‘talkies’. The performances herein have all rarely been seen since they were shown as part of the Pathé cinema newsreels of the day.

'Variety Acts and Turns Of The Early 1930s’ is a nostalgic celebration of the whole diversity of Variety entertainers; ventriloquists, jugglers, ‘big band’ dance orchestras, character comedy sketches, balladeers and plenty of song and dance routines. Artistes include baritone Lance Fairfax, Robb Wilton and his comic monologues, pianists Leslie ‘Hutch’ Hutchinson and Charlie Kunz, Tommy Handley, Ronald Frankau, Al Bowlly, Charlie Chaplin, Sophie Tucker, Charles Coburn, Mantovani and dozens more!

In the early 1930s, Pathé went all out to film the established radio and theatre variety acts of the day, taking advantage of the advent of cinematic sound to provide big screen entertainment the likes of which had never been seen before.

So, Ladies and Gentlemen, sit back and enjoy this treasure trove of classic British Variety at its very best. A celebration of fine comedy and cheery songs that capture the concerns, style and wit of a lost generation!

Hello Everyone - Popsike Sparks From Denmark Street 1968-70
•    Between 1968 and 1970, some of the finest, most obscure British psychedelic pop singles of the era escaped on the Spark label, the newly-inaugurated recording arm of long-established publishers Southern Music.  

•    Recorded in the basement studio of the company’s Denmark Street premises, these tracks often featured the same cabal of musicians and songwriters, leading to a homogenous in-house style that perfectly encapsulates the late 1960s British pop-psych studio sound.  

•    The best of Spark’s impressive roster is now collected on CD for the first time on Hello Everyone: Popsike Sparks from Denmark Street 1968-70, which assembles highly-prized, highly-priced 45s from pre-Rare Bird band Fruit Machine, Gene Latter, post-Sorrows outfit the Eggy, the New Generation (subsequently to become the Sutherland Brothers), the Dennis Wheatley-inspired Icarus and both sides of the magnificent and astonishingly rare single by Sir Ching I (only one stock copy known to exist).  Also included are exquisite Brit popsike singles from Timothy Blue, Just William, both sides of the superb John Carter/Russ Alquist collaboration ‘The Laughing Man’/‘Midsummer Dreaming’ and two sensational offerings from Eartha Kitt during her brief and unlikely immersion in late Sixties hippy chick chic.  

•    Crammed with vintage three-minute pop tunes, and with a lavish 16-page booklet that features rare photos, quotes and the full story behind the label, Hello Everyone is simply an essential purchase for admirers of the British psychedelic pop genre.

The Pied Piper - The Complete Recordings 1965-1974
•    Crispian St. Peters was a folk/pop singer-songwriter who enjoyed significant success in the mid-60s, his career fuelled by some infamous boasts about his musical talents (his claim that he was better than Elvis and The Beatles caused an outrage at the time).

•    Signing to Decca in 1965, Crispian broke through with the UK No. 2 hit ‘You Were On My Mind’ in 1966 (it also made the Top 40 Stateside), followed by perhaps his most famous song, ‘The Pied Piper’, which was Top 5 on both sides of the Atlantic. He also had a minor UK/US hit with ‘Changes’.

•    The Pied Piper does exactly what it says on the package: for the first time, this remastered 2-CD set offers Crispian’s complete recorded output for various labels across nigh on a decade, starting with early singles ‘At This Moment’ and ‘No, No, No’ and ending with a one-off single for Santa Ponsa.

•    Both of Crispian’s albums are represented in their entirety: his 1966 Decca album Follow Me… (issued in similar form on Jamie in the US as The Pied Piper); and his scarce 1970 album for the obscure Square label, Simply Crispian St. Peters.

•    Several recordings on this authoritative 51-track package make their debut on CD. Also included are his single under the pseudonym Country Smith, and several tracks boasting sessioneers Jimmy Page and Big Jim Sullivan on guitar.

•    The Pied Piper offers Crispian St. Peters’s entire recordings from 1965-1974 in one place, remastered with detailed sleeve-notes in the accompanying booklet. Sadly, Crispian passed away in 2010 but this new package offers a fitting epitaph to his musical legacy.
