B-A-B-Y (The Complete Stiff Recordings 1978-1980) - Rachel Sweet

B-A-B-Y (The Complete Stiff Recordings 1978-1980)
It’s 1977 and Stiff Records struck oil in Akron, Ohio when they signed Devo. Following up with ‘The Akron Compilation’ which featured fellow ‘Akronites’ Jane Aire, The Waitresses and the youngest of them all, Rachel Sweet.

Already talented way beyond her years, Rachel had toured the US and recorded several independent Country singles by the time she took the train from London to John O’Groats with backing band The Records to become the surprise hit on 1978’s ‘Be Stiff’ tour at the tender age of 16.

Rachel’s Country Music leanings were perfectly juxtaposed with songwriter/producer Liam ‘Walk Like An Egyptian’ Sternberg’s urban new wave sketches and pop pastiches of the past with retro recordings of Carla Thomas’ Stax US hit B-A-B-Y (a Top 40 UK hit for Rachel in January 1979) and the Spectropop treatment of Dusty Springfield’s Stay Awhile.

Subsequent recordings for the label resulted in the debut album Fool Around ; a classic Stiff in house affair featuring The Rumour and The Blockheads, as well as Will Birch’s Pin A Medal On Mary and Elvis Costello’s Stranger In The House. 

RPM’s B-A-B-Y: The Complete Stiff Recordings 1978-1980 collects together Rachel’s entire recorded output for the label with all the necessary Hits Greatest Stiffs including compilation only tracks, live and remix B-sides…and Rachel’s second and final album for the label in 1980, Protect The Innocent, produced by Martin Rushent and Alan Winstanley - a much, harder rock around the edges album taking on Elvis Presley,Lou Reed and Graham Parker.

Disc One presents the Akron Compilation tracks, the ‘Fool Around’ LP , the first singles b-sides, a Sounds exclusive track. Disc Two presents the ‘Protect The Innocent’ LP and the final single b-sides.

Strange fruit
Strange Fruit' is a great undiscovered work of the acoustic rock / classic rock genres, cited by some as a minor masterpiece. In the late 60's Gary Farr made the transition from leader of R&B outfit The T-Bones to a noted singer-songwriter. Recording an album for Marmalade Records, Farr then signed to CBS Records in 1970, recording this sole album for the label. Sessions featured contributions from RICHARD THOMPSON on lead guitar and leading lights of the underground MIGHTY BABY. Unavailable on CD for many years, 'Strange Fruit' is a record made by an often overlooked singer-songwriter made available once more by Esoteric Recordings and is certain to appeal to all who adore acoustic music both melancholic and uplifting. The reissue also features the first ever CD appearance of the single edit of 'Revolution of the Season'. Our Price: £10.95
