Your Obedient Servant - Orson Welles

Your Obedient Servant
Orson Welles is a titantic figure in popular culture. Before Kane, before Ambersons, The Lady From Shanghai and The Third Man; Before Touch of Evil, his astounding Othello, Chimes At Midnight and F for Fake, Welles created the sensational War of the Worlds broadcast that terrified a nation of American radio listeners.

While Hollywood beckoned, Welles and his company, The Mercury Theatre continued to produce compelling radio drama that still sounds extraordinary. Make no mistake, if radio held sway over us like it did during its Golden Age, much of Welles' work in the medium would be as venerated as Kane or any of the other creative triumphs that were to follow. The Hitch-hiker and the chilling Search for Henri Le Fevre were written by Lucille Fletcher. Sredni Vashtar is the work of the inscrutable late nineteenth century English writer, Saki The Music for all three performances was composed by long-time Welles (and Hitchcock) collaborator Bernard Herrmann

The View from the Edge
Released 18/05/09. The View from the Edge is about the rolke of percussion in modern music and is a sequel to el's previous Varese edition, The Complete Works of Edgard Varese Volume 1 (ACMEM125CD). An important restoration of the composer's earliest recordings, the edition was greeted by great critical enthusiasm and sold especially healthily on export.

Varese also has a strong base in America, mostly by virtue of the association with Frank Zappa, who for years championed the work of this genius who today is regarded now as "The Father Of Electronic Music”; a man that has been described as the Leonardo da Vinci of modern music

‘Arcana’ and ‘Ionisation’ are the composer's key works; two of the most important of the twentieth century. Leonard Bernstein's historic seventeen minute Arcana with The New York Philharmonic is amongst the rarest Varese recordings The American Percussion Society's vigorous recording of ‘Ionisation’ has been inexplicably out of print for five decades

The Oliver Messiaen pieces are his first official recordings ever, dating from 1946 & 1947, and orginally released on 78 by Pathe. Both are beautifully performed by a young Yvonne Loriod.

Fellini Masterpieces: La Strada / Nights of Cabiria
The artistic partnership between film director Federico Fellini and composer Nino Rota was one of the most productive and enduring in cinema history. "La Strada" and "Nights of Cabiria" announced their arrival on the scene to an awestruck Italian and international public. Both movies won academy awards for "the best foreign language film"; establishing the style that would soon reach full expression with the renowned "La Dolce Vita".

These are the original mono soundtracks recorded in 1952 and 1956 respectively: the same recordings that are used on the films and both are long out of print in any format.

Sammy Walker / Blue Ridge Mountain Skyline
    Sammy Walker’s mentor Phil Ochs wrote in 1975 "Sammy Walker is the finest songwriter and singer I have come across in the last dozen years.  I am certain he has a great future ahead of him”. These are the two albums recorded for Warner Brothers in 1976 and 1977.

    The self-titled album containing all Sammy’s own material - considered by many to be his best release - is very Dylan-esque.  The second album "Blue Ridge Mountain Skyline” includes songs written by Walker with the exception of ‘Waitin’ For A Train’ (Jimmie Rodgers) and ‘Dust Storm Disaster’ (Woody Guthrie).

    Musicians include Bill C. Graham, who accompanied Glen Campbell and many other country stars on fiddle and Lyle Ritz, on bass, who went on to greater fame as a ukulele player.  The great James Burton, Elvis’s guitar player for many years, also appears playing dobro on "Sammy Walker”; his standout solo on ‘Days I Left Behind’ is something special.

Both albums were recorded in Hollywood with Producer Nik Venet who had worked with Linda Ronstadt and John Stewart.

If you like early Bob Dylan then Sammy Walker could be just the thing for you.

Released on 13th January 2014
