Akella presents Blues - Vol. Menovky: Akella presents Bluesblues. The charm of this set is that it has been tranferred straight from vinyl without lots of remastering so it is like listening to the original vinyl and in places you can still hear the pops and The Lord Is My Light - Various - Birth Of Dancehall (Black Solidarity 1976-1979) (CD) which were such an important feature of listening to an LP or single on a turntable.
Rory Block discography . Aurora "Rory" Block born November 6,Princeton, New Jersey, United States is an American female blues guitarist and singer, a notable exponent of the country blues style. Aurora Block was born in Princeton and grew up in Manhattan.
Her father, Allan Block, ran a sandal shop in Greenwich Village in the s, and the influence of the Greenwich Village folk music scene, such as Peter Rowan, Maria Muldaur, and John Sebastian, tempted Block to study classical guitar.
At the age of 14, she met guitarist Stefan Grossman, who introduced her to the music of Mississippi Delta blues guitarists. Block began listening to old albums, transcribing them, and learning to play the songs. At age 15, she left home to seek out the remaining blues giants, such as Mississippi John Hurt, Reverend Gary Davis, and Son House, and hone her craft in the traditional manner of blues musicians; then she traveled to Berkeley, California where she played in clubs and coffeehouses.
After retiring temporarily to raise a family, Block returned to the music industry in the s with middling success until signing with Rounder Records inwho encouraged her to return to her love for the classical blues form. Since then she has carved out her own niche, releasing numerous critically acclaimed albums of original and traditional songs, including many Robert Johnson covers, such as "Terraplane Blues" and "Come on in My Kitchen".

And he is true to his word. So a recording contract is secured with Geffen Records, the new enterprise created by David Geffen, former head of Asylum Records. It starts with the sound of a bell chiming.
Yoko Ono claims this is a bell used for wishes. Just put a Band-Aid on it? Invigorated, John Lennon and Yoko Ono begin working on a follow-up album. On 8 December at P. When John and Yoko return at P. Chapman shoots John Lennon five times.
John Lennon is dead. Although rock stars had died tragically and prematurely before this, it was usually the result of a drug overdose or an accident travelling from one gig to another. This time, disturbingly, it is premeditated murder. It could even be termed an assassination. This clears out the vaults.
In the wake of his murder, grief-stricken fans deify John Lennon. He is trumpeted as an angelic envoy of peace and love. Yet, at the same time, it seems likely he would have been dismayed at the whitewashed portrait of himself. Few artists have so ruthlessly and relentlessly exposed their flaws for public consumption. Lennon insisted on being seen as human. He was no saint. He was prone to cruelty, jealousy and arrogance. These traits co-existed with his better impulses.
Aleister Crowley — is perhaps the best known English occultist. It was said to be built on the ruins of a church that had burned to the ground, killing the congregation within. Before Crowley purchased Boleskine House it was reputed to be the site of a beheading and several suicides. From the early s to the early s, Boleskine House is owned by Jimmy Page.
His father, James Patrick Page, Senior, is an industrial personnel manager; his mother, Patricia Elizabeth nee Gaffiken works as a secretary for a doctor.
The lad picks up a guitar, a second-hand acoustic model, when he is Unlike many of his peers in the rock industry, Jimmy Page does not go on to a string of small-time bands. So the ambitious guitarist is sidelined from working on the road. His undeniable talent is recognised when he finds work as a session musician, anonymously performing guitar duties on recordings by other artists. During this period, Jimmy Page is invited to join The Yardbirds in January as a replacement for their famed guitarist Eric Clapton.
Page declines due to both concerns about his physical ability to resume the life of a musician on the road and the fact he is making a tidy profit from his session recording work.
The Yardbirds come knocking again in Julythis time asking Page to join them as bassist Paul Samwell-Smith has left. This time he accepts. Presumably Jimmy Page still has ambitions to make a name for himself instead of being just an anonymous hired hand. Yardbirds second guitarist Chris Dreja swaps to bass, leaving Page to assume his duties. Jeff Beck is forced to take a break due to illness, so Page steps up to the position of lead guitarist.
When Beck recovers he and Page share the role of lead guitarist from 19 October — for two gigs before Jeff Beck quits. On 7 July The Yardbirds fall apart. However they are still contractually obligated to play some dates in Scandinavian countries, so Jimmy Page has to assemble a new version of the band for the task.
A hulking brute with an intimidating, brusque manner, Peter Grant has been a sheet-metal worker, stage-hand, professional wrestler, part-time actor, and bouncer. Jones is, like Page, a veteran of the session scene.
He plays bass and keyboards as well as handling some musical arrangements. He met his future wife, Maureen, in and married her in The couple go on to have three daughters: Jacinda, Tamara and Kierra.
Jones and Page crossed paths in their session duties. Jimmy Page asks B. Wilson to act as drummer for the The Lord Is My Light - Various - Birth Of Dancehall (Black Solidarity 1976-1979) (CD) tour, but he declines since he has already signed up with Procul Harum ina fact Page is either ignorant about or had hoped would be less attractive than his own offer.
For vocalist, Jimmy Page selects Terry Reid. He too declines because he is more intent on his own solo career which is just getting started. Robert Plant born 20 August is a gigging musician who has been working in the Birmingham area with a group called Band Of Joy.
Band Of Joy provided the backing on these recordings. He married Pat Phillips in and they have a son, Jason born 15 July They will later have a daughter as well, Zoe born 10 June Although it could have been over as soon as the tour is complete, the four musicians find the chemistry between them enjoyable and think they could do something more.
Did they think they would become as big as they were fated to be? Retuning to London, they try to find a new name and identity for the group. This is modified to the more aggressive Zeppelin, the large airships used for mass air transport in the s before passenger airplanes. The usual formula is that Plant writes the words he will sing and Page composes the music.
Led Zeppelin melds the contributions of its four distinct component members. He makes the most of his own considerable skills as a guitarist but never at the expense of the band as an ensemble.
Robert Plant is a golden-haired man-god flashing a semi-naked torso. He also provides vocals that range from a bluesy bark to a gentle croon…and throws in some harmonica playing on selected songs as well. John Bonham plays like he is dropping anvils rather than hitting drums.
The sound produced by the newly christened Led Zeppelin can be described as heavy metal. As may be recalled, future Led Zeppelin founder Jimmy Page played on this track in his days as a session musician.
In the beginning at least, heavy metal owes a debt to the blues. Reaching a height of popularity in the s — s, the blues is the music of African-Americans. It represents a way of working through heartbreak or hard times by channelling that emotion through bent or distorted guitar notes.
Jimi Hendrix, during the main part of his recording career —also plays a sort of super-charged blues. As a genre in its own right, the five characteristics that distinguish heavy metal are extreme volume — it is REALLY LOUD; supernatural images or similar references in the lyrics; an attitude that women are mere sex objects; lengthy instrumental solos; and long hair. Peter Grant sets out to secure a recording contract for Led Zeppelin. He and the band want to have an international focus so rather than sign with a British label Grant obtains a deal for the group with Atlantic Records in the U.
The couple have three children: Carmen bornKarac and Logan born This means that at the time Led Zeppelin release their first album only Jimmy Page is a single man. The cover image is a photo of the destruction of the Hindenburg, whose fiery crash on 6 May brought to an end the era of large-scale airship travel. This song was part of The Yardbirds repertoire but had not previously been recorded. This album, like all Led Zeppelin albums, is produced by Jimmy Page.
The concise, focused riff of the flipside is too often overlooked. Bonzo flails about, even slapping the drum skins with his bare hands. Though they never marry, the couple have a daughter, Scarlet born The reason for the temporary assumed identity is the band is under the threat of a legal suit in Denmark if they use the Led Zeppelin designation.
The last three all refer to the band adopting a symbol for each of its members. Robert Plant is represented by a feather within a circle. John Bonham has three linked rings that, purportedly, represent mother, father, and child.
John Paul Jones shares songwriting credit with Plant and Page for both sides of this single. Yet the scale of the event may be dwarfing the more important aspects.
Afterwards, the group takes time out. When Led Zeppelin returns in February it is with an elaborate double album. Jones co-writes the song with Robert Plant and Jimmy Page. John Bonham takes a co-writing credit on this track. On 4 AugustRobert Plant, his wife and children are all injured in a car crash that takes place during a family holiday on the Mediterranean island of Rhodes. The vehicle rolls off a narrow highway. Barely recovered from his car crash injuries, Plant is now grieving the loss of his son.
Some Led Zeppelin tour dates are cancelled. On 9 August Led Zeppelin play their first U. In an unlikely alliance, Swedish pop group Abba invited Led Zeppelin to record at their studio. A European tour follows, beginning on 17 June However tragedy strikes on the eve of a U.
Drummer John Bonham is found dead on 25 September On 4 December it is announced that Led Zeppelin will not continue. Robert Plant and his wife, Maureen, divorce in August In Jimmy Page marries Patricia Ecker, a model and waitress.
On 14 May Led Zeppelin again reconvenes, this time at a concert to celebrate the fortieth anniversary of Atlantic Records. Jimmy Page and Patricia Ecker divorce in He later marries a Brazilian woman, Jimena Gomez-Paratcha.
Page adopts her daughter, Jana bornand fathers two children with his new spouse: Zofia born and Ashen born On 10 December Led Zeppelin again get together, this time for a concert in tribute to the late Ahmet Ertegun, former Atlantic Records boss. Once again, Jason Bonham plays drums for the show.
In Robert Plant is living with U. Despite rumours of a secret wedding, Plant and Griffin never actually wed. They part ways in The band cast a spell over listeners and those fans appreciated the enigmatic magic men behind the songs. Ray has all his money in his sock. He is the seventh of eight children.
Ray has six older sisters, but it is his younger sibling, his brother Dave Davies born 5 Februarywho will be most relevant to this story. She sends records back to the U. Their manager, Larry Page, tries to come up with an image for his young charges. He does not consult the young musicians. Thus they are as surprised as anyone to see their new designation on the mock-up of the advertisement for their first single. More interesting is the flipside.
This is their charm. There is a brutish obviousness about the songs and an inevitability to the arrangements. Rather unjustly, this too fails to distinguish itself, reportedly selling a meagre one hundred and twenty-seven copies. To achieve the dirty, fuzzy guitar sound, Dave Davies uses a razor blade to slash the speaker cone in his Elpico amplifier.
As well as Jimmy Page there are some other interesting contributors from outside The Kinks. If there are suspicions that The Kinks output is wearing thin due to a lack of variation, the next single tries to address the problem. This single, also issued in Marchis less successful, suggesting that even if The Kinks are feeling the desire to stretch out a bit, the record-buying public are not inclined to sponsor such an attempt.
On 30 April The Kinks begin their first U. On 25 May the rest of the U. Their reputation precedes them though. The Kinks complete the tour, but the American Federation of Musicians makes it difficult for them to return. It marks a significant change.
As the title indicates, the band turns down the volume. However, this does not mean the songs have less impact. Yet even here there is a The Lord Is My Light - Various - Birth Of Dancehall (Black Solidarity 1976-1979) (CD) poignancy.
For the record, The Kinks U. From here on out the U. In other words, they are attacking their own fanbase. Ray Davies becomes a great character actor in his songs.
He may put on the guise of another person i. Roughly analogous to vaudeville in the United States, the music hall is the forum for all-around entertainers. This is where song-and-dance men also ply the rowdy audiences with amusing stories and jokes.
In a way, The Kinks virtually self-imposed exile from the United States market helps their development. Their music and lyrics become increasingly British. With The Kinks less committed to touring, in Dave Davies toys with a solo career.
Yet the whole scene is sketched out by a voyeuristic observer Ray himself? Terry and Julie may have each other, but the narrator can only bask in the reflected glow of their love while existing in isolation.
Ray Davies creativity shows no signs of flagging in This set introduces the character of Mr Flash. The band attacks the ridiculously catchy tune as though they are playing an advertising jingle. Replacing him on bass is John Dalton born 21 May The Kinks are blending their earlier sledgehammer style with their later, more nuanced approach. This shift in manner coincides with The Kinks undertaking their first U. The Kinks membership expands significantly with not only a keyboards player, John Gosling born 6 Februarybut a three-piece brass section consisting of Laurie Brown trumpetAlan Holmes saxophone and John Beecham trombone.
After years of being marginalised in the U. In this instance, instead of abandoning civilisation for the jungle, the narrator abandons earthly civilisation for outer space.
In The Kinks launch Konk Records, their own label. The label exists to spare other artists some of the problems The Kinks have experienced. In The Kinks sign with Arista Records. In the process they lose the horn section, the backing vocalists, the elaborate theatrical stage shows and bassist John Dalton. Andy Pyle born assumes the role of bass player. In addition, Gordon Edwards takes over keyboards from John Gosling. When most rock bands write about rock music, they pen celebratory tributes.
Yet, in this song, all The Kinks seem to find is a yawning black hole at the centre of the whole circus. The Kinks are touring a lot through the U. They do have some limitations imposed on the band, as the album title reflects. Soon she meets Ray and they begin a volatile romantic relationship.
Ray Davies and Yvonne Gunnar divorce in Davies and Hynde do not marry and soon go their separate ways. She too bears him a daughter, Eva. It is a measure of the difference in their esteem between the U. However the tone of this song is very different. Again the disc has at least a pair of noteworthy tracks.
Mark Haley assumes keyboard duties from as Ian Gibbons exits. Ray Davies and Pat Crosby divorce in The Kinks disband in Ray Davies and Dave Davies both fitfully release solo albums and write books. The Kast Off Kinks is a low-key pastime for a shifting cast of the other musicians who worked with the Davies siblings. A notable exception to this loose-knit brotherhood is Peter Quaife who dies of kidney failure on 23 June The Kinks had a long and dare it be said?
There were many colourful characters and incidents along the way. In retrospect, after The Kinks left Pye Records, their output became patchier.
Are any of these religious concepts relevant to playing guitars and thumping drums? Decide for yourself. The history of Kings Of Leon revolves around three brothers and their cousin. Their cousin, Cameron Matthew Followill born 10 Septemberis older than only the youngest of the brothers. Professionally, the quartet all use their middle names, so from this point, they will be referred to as Nathan, Caleb, Jared and Matthew.
Ivan Followill is a preacher in the Pentecostal Church. Nathan is born in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Caleb and Jared are both born in Mt. Juliet, Tennessee. Their mother home schools the boys for the most part, though, when circumstances permit, they attend small schools.
Everything changes in Understandably, this greatly impacts upon their children. Yet the kids are also freed from the prohibition against popular music. Feeling bored and unfulfilled, he seriously considers signing up for military service. Caleb and elder brother Nathan relocate to Nashville, Tennessee.
The Followills also work on their songwriting and meet Angelo Petraglia, another aspiring tunesmith, with whom they will have a lengthy association.
Nathan and Caleb play in clubs, with Nathan shaking a tambourine while Caleb plucks an acoustic guitar. As for why they are the Kings Of Leon rather than the Sons or Grandsons Of Leon, it can only be theorised that it sounds a bit grander and more regal.
ByNathan and Caleb Followill attract the attentions of a number of record labels. They choose to sign with RCA. Their new sponsors attempt to put together a band for the siblings, but are rebuffed. At this point, Jared is still in High School and is not a musician.
Regardless, his elder brothers buy him a bass guitar and convince the 16 year old to join them. Cousin Matthew was born in Oklahoma City, but is now residing in Mississippi. He learned to play the guitar when he was Jared contacts Matthew and tells him to come down to Tennessee. Officially, the songs by Kings Of Leon are written by the group as a whole. Unofficially, it seems like Caleb Followill is the main songwriter.
The other members may contribute ideas or pen the occasional tune, but the bulk of the task falls to Caleb. And the one who attends to that chore is usually Nathan. Not only is he the eldest of the family but his hours pounding the drum kit have given him a physique like a brick out-house. His bearishness is leavened by the fact that he is the only one in the band to wear spectacles. This makes him look more studious and less threatening.
By contrast, Jared, the baby of the group, is the prettiest one, though young Matthew is not far behind, hampered only by being a bit more shy and scruffy. The sound produced by Kings Of Leon is a high-energy, raw-boned version of rock.
