Love, Poetry And Revolution - Various Artists

Love, Poetry And Revolution
Cherry Red’s dedicated UK psych imprint Grapefruit is proud to announce the release in October of the 3CD anthology Love, Poetry and Revolution: a journey through the British psychedelic and underground scenes 1966-1972. · Housed in a clambox with a lavishly annotated and illustrated 36 page booklet, this important release features much rare material, including previously unissued demo recordings by Tintern Abbey and Blossom Toes.

Various heavyweight underground bands (The Crazy World Of Arthur Brown, Hawkwind, The Deviants, etc) rub shoulders with acts who recorded some of the rarest, most valuable albums of the era (Forever Amber, Complex, Peter Howell & John Ferdinando), while the box also includes a number of subterranean bands - Middle Earth regulars Jade Hexagram, Neon Pearl, Respect and others – who failed to release anything during their lifetime. ·

Embracing psychedelic pop (The Mirage, Jason Crest, Shy Limbs, Crocheted Doughnut Ring etc), the burgeoning progressive rock scene (T2, Czar, Fat Mattress) and acid folk (the likes of Simon Finn and Mark Fry), Love, Poetry and Revolution draws on a number of catalogues, including Beacon (The Fut, Information, pre-Damned act Taiconderoga), the Vic Keary stable and various collector labels (Sunbeam, Acme, Tenth Planet/Wooden Hill) to give a fascinating, all-embracing overview of what was a tumultuous few years in British pop/rock history.

Stray Dog - Expanded Edition
Released 26/10/09. The 1973 debut from a band who became cult figures on the blues-rock scene, mainly because there was a real crunch to the music. Greg Lake (of Emerson, Lake and Palmer) signed them to the bands Manticore label, and he produced three of the tracks on this album. This release (along with While You re Down There by Stray Dog) is the first to be issued on the reactivated Manticore label, under an exclusive license to Cherry Red Records and managed by the people who brought you Esoteric Recordings and Atomhenge. Our Price: £10.95

The North Wind Blew South
Released on 14/02/10. One of the most mysterious albums of the late Sixties, British singer/songwriter Philamore Lincoln's US-only release The North Wind Blew South including his original version of Temma Harbour, a song that became a Top Ten hit for Mary Hopkin - has attracted plenty of conjecture over the years, much of it concerning the alleged involvement of the Yardbirds (Chris Dreja took the album photo, while Jimmy Page contributed a fierce lead guitar break to one of the standout tracks, You're The One ).

This first-ever official reissue of a much-counterfeited set finally sets the record straight about the elusive Mr. Lincoln and his highly convoluted musical history, which included previous pseudonymous stints as jazz drummer Phil Kinorra and blue-eyed soulster Julien Covey (whose A Little Bit Hurt single had been highly popular in Swinging London discotheques).

Just For You/All Night Music
· Originally from Youngstown, Ohio, the brother-and-sister group The McCrarys began their career in the gospel field recording their first LP in 1972. However, it was a move into secular music in 1978 that brought the team national prominence in the US when their debut album for Portrait Records, "Loving Is Living” achieved success, in part due to the Top 10 R&B hit, ‘You’ which featured one of their champions, Stevie Wonder. After their label follow-up LP, "On The Other Side,” the group signed a new deal with Capitol Records in 1980.
· Consisting of sisters Charity and Linda and brothers Alfred, Howard and Sam, The McCrarys worked with producer/musician Patrick Henderson (whose roots were also in the gospel field). With seven tracks credited to various members of the group as songwriters, JUST FOR YOU included the key cut, ‘Any Ol’ Sunday’ which was recorded by Chaka Khan in 1981.
· Teamed with former member of The Crusaders, Wayne Henderson (producer of Ronnie Laws, Esther Phillips, Side Effect and Pleasure among others), the group’s second Capitol LP, ALL NIGHT MUSIC fared better. The track, ‘Love On A Summer Night’ became a Top 100 US R&B hit single and a constant favourite – and now classic - in the UK with ‘smooth groove’fans.
· Apart from a limited Japanese pressing of "All Night Music”, both albums are making their worldwide CD debut with this SoulMusic Records reissue, which includes notes by renowned UK writer Charles Waring with 2013 quotes from members of the group.

Billy Preston & Syreeta
  • Continuing to reissue classic original albums from the Motown catalogue, SoulMusic Records is very proud to present the worldwide CD debut of the self-titled 1981 album by BILLY PRESTON and SYREETA, an expanded edition with seven bonus tracks.
  • Billy Preston (through mid’-70s hits such as ‘Will It Go Round In Circles’ and ‘Nothing From Nothing’) and Syreeta (former wife of Stevie Wonder with four critically-acclaimed albums to her credit) were established as recording artists in their own right when, as Motown label-mates, they worked together on the 1979 soundtrack for the film, "Fast Break.” While the film itself made no impact, one track from the album, the beautiful ballad ‘With You I’m Born Again’ (included as a bonus track on this reissue along with an instrumental version of the song) became a Top 5 UK hit prompting Motown to release the single in the US where it reached No. 4 on Billboard’s Top 100 chart.
  • Encouraged by the single’s success, Syreeta’s 1980 self-titled LP (reissued by SoulMusic Records in 2013, SMCR-5094) featured two more duets with Billy, ‘One More Time For Love’ and ‘Please Stay,’ both included as bonus tracks on this release along with a non-album ‘B’ side ‘It Will Come In Time.’ The pair recorded BILLY PRESTON & SYREETA in 1981 working with producers including David Shire & Carol Connors, Ollie E. Brown and Michael Masser.
  • Bonus tracks include two versions of ‘Go For It’ (from "Fast Break”) and the reissue includes notes by UK Motown expert Sharon Davis with 2013 quotes from producer/songwriter Carol Connors.
