From A Whisper To A Scream: Expanded Edition - Esther Phillips

From A Whisper To A Scream: Expanded Edition
•    Justifiably hailed as her ‘career’ album, FROM A WHISPER TO A SCREAM re-established the late Esther Phillips as a prominent soul and jazz artist in 1972, starting her most fruitful period as an international chartmaker through her five-year association with jazz industry veteran Creed Taylor’s Kudu Records.

•    Originally a chart-topping child star with the Johnny Otis band in the early ‘50s, Little Esther battled drug addiction off and on throughout the ‘60s during which she achieved some success with ‘Release Me’ (1963) and ‘And I Love Him’ (1965). Esther recorded some critically acclaimed albums for Atlantic before entering rehab in 1969.

•    The sessions for FROM A WHISPER TO A SCREAM in December 1971 found her surrounded by stellar players such as Gordon Edwards (bass), Bernard Purdie (drums), Airto Moreira (percussion), Cornell Dupree and Eric Gale (guitar), Richard Tee (keyboards) and labelmate Hank Crawford (on sax on selected tracks).

•    Handpicking the material herself, Esther included some R&B hits of the time – The Originals’ ‘Baby I’m For Real,’ Eddie Floyd’s ‘’Til My Back Ain’t Got No Bone’ – alongside two songs penned by Allen Toussaint, including the stirring title track.  The album’s most notable cut was her true-to-life version of Gil Scott-Heron’s ‘Home Is Where The Hatred Is,’  which she was initially reluctant to record  given its direct references to heroin addiction.

•    Originally reissued in 1988 with (four) bonus tracks, this expanded edition has been out of print for several years. Notes by SoulMusic.com founder David Nathan include quotes from a 1973 interview with Esther.

•    This CD is released 21st April and will not be shipped prior to this date.

Gettin' Dirty

BMX Bandits are a Scottish 1960s-influenced guitar pop band who have been making music from 1986 to the present day. They have shared members with other Bellshill bands Teenage Fanclub and The Soup Dragons.

True heroes of the underground certainly the Scottish music underground defiantly of the Bellshill scene. Duglas T. Stewart has been the mainstay of this band that has featured members of The Teenage Fanclub and The Vasalines. Their sound is as much west coast Americana as it is west Scotland

Their songs are full of heartbreak and humour mixed with a laid back guitar sound that amongst many others attracted the attention of Kurt Cobain who was famously photographed wearing their T-shirts and claiming that they were the only other band he would like to be in.

Gettin' Dirty includes the single of the same and the Love Come To Me single. This edition includes all the b-sides and the fantastic cover of the Jonathan Richman song Summer Feeling perfect for the great summer we are all about to enjoy. It also includes sleeve notes by Duglas and images dug out from his loft.

Between The Sea And The Sky
Imagine coming off the back of a defunct group, with no hits, but who have admittedly just released one of the best pop psych singles in the UK ever, and being thrown into George Martins Air Studios on a publishing/production deal and told there you are boys "make an album".

A slight license with the factual there but essentially this is what happened to Martin Briley and Brian Engel .In 1969, late of Mandrake Paddle Steamer and their classic 'Strange Walking Man', these late teens art students were given access to Air Studios and budgets for orchestras plus musicians to come up with hit singles. What they actually came up with was an almost concept album that exhibited all that had influenced them to that point, and let loose their humour and imagination. Sadly with the exception of one single ('Pale Green Vauxhall Driving Man') released under the name Prowler, a couple of years after the event, the recordings lay on the shelf, and are released for the first time now.

Briley played with GreAenslade and then as session guitarist with the Hunter Ronson band, Meatloaf and Ellen Foley. Three solo albums and a US top 40 hit 'Salt In My Tears' followed. He continues as a songwriter for international artists and backing vocalist.

United We Stand
In the beginning, Tony Hiller created The Brotherhood of Man. Formed in the recording studio and launched into a world at war over Vietnam, peace certainly won the day on vinyl in 1970 with the group‘s top ten single ‘United We Stand’ and accompanying album’s original sleeve notes announcing the groups arrival "with an eloquent and convincing plea to unite”.

The Brotherhood of Man would eventually win a very different war with a very different line-up in Europe at the Eurovision Song Contest in 1976. A different time, place, sound. RPM’s collection, concentrates on their old testament with chief peacemakers Johnny Goodison, Tony Burrows, Roger Greenaway, Hal Atkinson, Russell Stone and the brit girl sisterhood of Sue Glover and Sunny Leslie. Featuring the complete 1970 album now with corresponding non-album Asides and B-sides together with Sue and Sunny’s soulful Deram 45s from the same period. United We Stand unites the best session singers and songwriters of the late sixties and early seventies in total harmony with both their record buying public and the charts of the times.

Cab Driver - The Dot & Paramount Years 1958-1972
After a long and illustrious recording career that had spawned over 60 major US Pop hits for Brunswick and Decca Records, respectively, the Mills Brothers took a new direction and signed to Paramount’s recently acquired subsidiary, Dot.

Commencing in 1958, their spell with the label and its parent company lasted some twelve years, and produced some of the group’s finest works, including seven chart hits, four of which make their CD debut on this set.

This long overdue collection, comprising the best of their Dot and Paramount singles, highlights an almost forgotten chapter in the career of what were arguably the most successful and influential vocal group in the history of recorded music. · From Doo Wop to Country, Jazz, to mainstream Pop, the quality of the music and group’s inimitable, laid back delivery both remain consistent throughout, and with most of the material officially unavailable since its original release, music fans can finally discover the Mills Brothers could still swing even after the Beatles had broken up!
