The Thompson Sound 1979-82 - Barry Brown

The Thompson Sound 1979-82
•    Following the likes of Johnny Clarke and Linval Thompson, Barry Brown (born c. 1962) was one of those Jamaican singers whose career came to the fore in the era when roots reggae morphed into the early dancehall period in late 70’s and early 80’s.

•    Barry Brown paid his dues running errands and being a constant presence around the West Kingston recording studios before getting his break under the guidance of Bunny Lee. Brown would go on to release a string of singles and albums with Lee throughout the late 70’s, before going on to work with other producers such as Sugar Minott, King Jammy and Linval Thompson amongst many others.

•    Produced by Linval Thompson (whose voice was uncannily similar to Barry Brown’s), this album contains a couple of singles and versions recorded in 1979 as well as an albums worth of material from 1981-1982 that was shelved at the time due a perceived over-saturation of Barry Brown material doing the rounds.

•    Many tracks on CD for the first time ever.

•    Produced by Linval Thompson, recorded at Channel One, mixed at King Tubby’s by Scientist, rhythms by the Roots Radics.

•    This is a must have for those who like their conscious roots reggae backed with that heavy driving early 80’s Radics sound. An essential edition to the Barry Brown catalogue.

•    This CD is released 28th April and will not be shipped prior to this date.

Restless Night : The Complete Pop-Psych Sessions 1967-71
Released on 06/09/2010. Octopus's sole 1969 long-player Restless Night is something of a treasure among '60s Brit-psych fans due to its mixture of proto-progressive riffs, accomplished pop tunes and sparkling Beatlesque flourishes. The band evolved out of the thriving Hertfordshire beat scene that also gave us The Zombies, The Gods and those other cult pop-psych heroes Forever Amber. Octopus' music was coloured by the use of keyboards and layered vocal harmonies in much the same way. As The Cortinas they enjoyed several years of local success which culminated in the 1968 CBS  single Phoebe's Flower Shop . The single was pure pop confectionery and betrayed little of the band's tight, melodic brand of rock. By the time they'd been signed to Larry Page's Penny Farthing label in 1969, their sound had expanded to encompass the burgenoning progressive scene, the dawn of the solo troubadour and the omnipresent influence of The Beatles, illustrated perfectly by their live sets of the period which included songs by Yes, Neil Young, Cat Stevens and even note-for-note renditions of "I Am The Walrus" and "Baby, You're A Rich Man"!

The first single and album opener The River is a tough dancefloor groover complete with lysergic fuzz guitar and has appeared on several compilations while the album cover art is an eye-opening classic of the "so bad it's good" school. Much to the band's horror, they discovered that Page had released a bastardised version of the album which omitted two of the original tracks and added the b-side of the single. Previous re-issues of the album have, not surprisingly, stuck to the erroneous tracklist but here at Rev-Ola we always strive to give you more. And you love it don't you, you little beauties?

I Ran - The Best Of
One of the most infamous 80's bands to burst out from synth-heavy and ruthlessly stylish New Romantic movement into the New Wave scene, A Flock Of Seagulls come to Anagram with "I Ran (The Best Of)" (CDMGRAM 181). A Flock Of Seagulls enjoyed chart success all over the world, especially in the USA where their haircuts have became a singular expression of 80's excess and style. This hits collection, featuring singer Mike Score's newly recorded, true to the original versions of The Seagull's best loved songs, including "I Ran", "Space Age Love Song", "Wishing (If I Had A Photograph Of You) and "Nightmare", is guaranteed to have you banging on your air synth while it transports you back to the 80's.

Hollywood Brats
Formed in 1972 the Hollywood Brats were Punk long before the term was invented. Dressed in make-up and women's blouses they sought to shock, whilst making the music they wanted to make. The packaging for this CD has been lovingly assembled with biographies from both vocalist Andrew Matheson and guitarist Brady plus all the lyrics. The digital mastering was undertaken by keyboard player Casino Steel.

The Magic Of
Alongside Scott Walker and Dusty Springfield, Jackie Trent was one of the most distinctive pop voices of the sixties. With Tony Hatch, she co-wrote hits for Walker and Petula Clark and enjoyed major success of her own when ‘Where Are You Now?’ ousted the Beatles’ ‘Ticket To Ride’ from the number one spot in the spring of 1965. Complimented by some memorable Hatch arrangements, the restored Magic of Jackie Trent and the superb material with which it has been augmented here are testament to her brilliant artistry.
