A Thousand Years. Perri, Christina. Fulfillment by Clear Spot Tel. An exclusive double sided art print with exclusive pictures and full credits is included. They have toured both in the U. Comes on white and clear splatter vinyl. The real son of Anastasia. Campbell was spun out of the same mystical essence that created Lennon and McCartney and his song writing is on par with the Liverpool legends. Jimmy was far too humble for such a comparison and would have told me to knock it off!

Jimmy was a huge Lennon fan. Like most perfectionists, he was never happy with any of his finished recordings and would always comment that he could have got it better. Gone now but never forgotten, Jimmy's magic continues to shine around the globe as more and more musicians pick up on his often-vulnerable confessions.

Jimmy's work is just as diverse, producing everything from gorgeous gleaming Beatlesque power pop rockers to introspective tender acoustic jewels that will make the hair on your arms tingle.

Too many times Jimmy's name will be followed by empty praises of "what could have been," or "tremendous commercial potential.

Jimmy's songs could paint an often-melancholy picture, but Jimmy was never that man. Jimmy was a craftsman, and his acoustic guitar was his paintbrush and the vinyl his canvas.

A true modern-day Michelangelo. This collection would make Jimmy break a smile because each artist has chosen a track composed by Jimmy that means so much to them and brings them joy. Each artist has put their heart into the music, and they had fun remember when music was fun?

There is no doubt that some younger musicians will find this collection and become inspired by the songs with no idea who Jimmy Campbell is. I say "is," as through the spirit of recorded music he still lives and can never really die. These powerful renditions will only inspire others to investigate the original recordings and be taken on a magical journey that starts in Kirkby and ends in Mersey.

Fruupp were a progressive rock band, which originated in Belfast, Northern Ireland, but developed a fan base in Great Britain. They were relatively popular, particularly on the student scene and as a supporting act for such bands as Genesis, King Crimson and Queen. An awesome opening to the album. Yes, we're definitely in Genesis territory here, with a somewhat heavier sound, and very good it is too. Track 4 'Graveyard Epistle' is a song which begins as a melodic ballad before breaking out into some very proggy, heavy and intense riffing.

In true prog fashion, there are constant changes of tempo, staccato breaks and a few key changes thrown in too, to keep the listener entertained and enthralled. It's a grand-sounding title and the music is impressively grand too, Again, it sounds like a song Genesis could have recorded in their classic prog years.

There's a thumping rhythm section and the guitarist is really in his element here as he demonstrates his virtuosity with some masterly soloing.

The cryptic lyrics are shrouded in mystery but with music this good, who cares about the lyrics anyway!? It's melodic, it's dramatic, and it'll leave you feeling euphoric. The final song is a brief and gentle vocal reprise of the classical title track which opened the album. It's a perfect ending to a magical album full of proggy tales of mystery LP imagination.

Bonus track 'On A Clear Day' has a sensational rhythmic verse, the song ends with a tribute to Gustav Holst by playing a segment from 'Jupiter' on the guitar.

The band would use classical influences regularly in songs to come. This is a very impressive debut album from this Northern Irish band that's likely to appeal to fans of the classic Peter Gabriel years of Genesis. If you love Genesis' 'Trespass' and 'Nursery Cryme', we think you'll enjoy this one.

It's hard to pick out a highlight of the album, because 'Future Legends' is full to the brim with great songs. If you're looking for a band with the musical talent and melodic finesse of Genesis with a somewhat heavier edge, then you'll be in prog heaven with this superb album.

This prog masterpiece is such a delight to listen to that you may be inspired to give Fruupp's following three albums a spin too. A must-have album for any discerning collector of classic British prog. The album comes with original artwork and a 4-sided cover-sized insert with bandstory by ex-manager Paul Charles. A must have!! We knew there was a chance we'd never finish it but, that was the goal. The story was pretty much written since day one, and it suffered very little alteration since then, going through the next chapters, the dark, depressive and dense 'Enter The Ceremony Of Damnation', and the deep proggy trip of 'And The Celestial Ascension'.

Now we're finally releasing the last piece and first chapter of the voyage. This is us turning up the spaciness to lysergic levels like never before, introducing better and reimagined versions of a few songs some of your might have head before back in 'The Sounds Of The Earth', plus new tracks that came to be right after 'The Ascension Tour'.

Limited to copies on "sun king" vinyl. An album inspired by the mysterious Californian desert location of Zzyzx that takes listeners through the Mojave Desert and its infamous Area 51 with a goal to break down the barriers of music made on Earth. This quirky record keeps up with the bands trademark sonic collage approach and tendency for cultural irony, an aesthetic prevalent in Os Mutantes' music since their formation in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and one which has gained them an always growing list of luminaries including the Flaming Lips, David Byrne, Devendra Banhart, Of Montreal and Beck.

The debut album from Liverpool's Novelty Island is a highly enjoyable trip through sunny, quasi-psychedelic songcraft across tracks with titles like 'Cowboy On A Bicycle' and 'Blackcurrant Sky,' songs with insistent alt-pop credentials such as Graham Coxon-indebted 'Michael Afternoon' and the free flow of the one-day recordings such as album opener 'This Bird,' the album is entirely 'other', yet cloaked in a warm-blanket of familiarity.

The album consists of six long, swirling, hallucination-inducing doses of music, and this is still Ouzo Bazooka's sweaty oriental fuzz party. Filled with imaginative, mind bending moments, 'Dalya' is yet another monument in Ouzo Bazooka's epic sonic journey and a grand new chapter in the band's story.

This collection of pieces will take listeners through some dark downtempo grooves - but then suddenly pound them with startling beats that will rattle furniture! Having spent the last decade or so as members of various psych and spacey fusion bands, on the psychedelic rock festival circuit, keyboardist Chris Cordwell and percussionist Nick Raybould had maintained Thought Bubble as their cherished side project.

It's now time to bring it into the open. DJs and podcasters for psych and prog radio shows have already been drip feeding their audiences some of these tracks - steadily building up an appetite for something more tangible and tangerine. Titus Groan were a short-lived British jazz-rock quartet, named after the first 'Gormenghast' novel by Mervyn Peake. The original album contained five tracks all over five minutes long, including one extended suite 'Hall Of Bright Carvings' with a running time of nearly twelve minutes.

This reissue adds three bonus tracks to the album from an EP also released in The group, before their premature split, was four-strong, featuring Stuart Cowell keyboards, guitars, vocalsJim Toomey drumsTony Priestland sax, flute, oboe and John Lee bass. Their sound was a lighter variant on the Van Der Graaf Generator school of prog, just without the discordant rumblings and shrieking vocals.

Titus Groan means high energy melodic songs with lots of guitars. There's occaisonal organ and electric piano, but mainly a much earlier guitar battling with flute, sax, and oboe sound. The first song 'It Wasn't For You' is very bluesy and grooves along with a restrained hard edge. The vocal sounds eerily like Ian Anderson. The guitar, which is strong and confident brings again Jethro Tull to mind, while the bass and percussion have a jazzier approach like Cream or King Crimson.

Now that Titus Groan have grabbed our attention with the lively opening number, it's time for the extended nearly 12 minutes long four-piece suite 'Hall Of Bright Carvings'. This epic song is a real musical tour de force, featuring flamboyant flutes, heavy guitar riffing, booming bass-lines and pounding percussion. The dynamic contrast between the gently melodic pastoral passages combined with sudden explosive outbursts of musical artillery fire are what really sets this music alight with power and passion.

Titus Groan can really carve their names with pride for producing stunning jazz-rock like this. Side one closes with bonus track 'Liverpool', a very dynamic track, always marching forward.

Side two opens with 'I Can't Change', which ironically, is a song full of constant change. It's a resonant flute-driven refrain that draws obvious comparisons with Jethro Tull, although the song takes a very unexpected turn midway through with a pleasant country rock diversion, before a return to more Album) fluty jazz-rock pastures.

Either way, it's a great song that barrels along relentlessly and features enough sudden tempo changes to delight devotees of jazzy prog-rock. The next song 'It's All Up With Us' is very commercially appealing, which would have made it an ideal choice for release as a single. The impassioned silver-toned singer is positively bursting with optimism here and the heart-warming music sounds as bright and uplifting as a radiant sunburst of rainbow colours after a summer shower. This is timeless music where all the brightly-coloured flowers in the garden are blooming.

Album) Groan have delivered a memorable timeless jazz-rock classic. This energetic fresh album sounds just as good today fifty years on as it ever did back in the halcyon days Perdido - Various - Phoenix Jazz Fifth Anniversary Album -- Unreleased Material (Vinyl the proggy s.

The album comes with an exact reproduction of the original album gatefold sleeve and a 4 sided cover-sized insert with bandstory and photos. Highly recommended. A brilliant 47 minute trip to a dark place where heavy, doom psych is king and you've no choice but to surrender to the sound.

The music is very much in the Ellington vein although a little looser and with more of a jam session feel. With Shorty Baker or Clark Terry on trumpet, trombonist Lawrence Brown and on one session baritonist Harry Carney, clarinetist Jimmy Hamilton and pianist Billy Strayhorn, it is no surprise that there are plenty of exciting moments to be heard, along with a six-song ballad medley.

    "As Duke Ellington's altoist during and , Johnny Hodges became world famous and beloved by jazz fans. His luscious tone and melodic style on ballads, blues and swing tunes was highly influential, making him the top altoist (along with Benny Carter) before the rise of Charlie Parker.

  2. Brarr says:

    Jul 07,  · Perdido is one of my very favorite jazz tunes. It’s such a simple tune, but it’s got a great melody, and the changes are just fun to blow on. It’s not very hard, and it’s very accessible to most beginning jazz musicians, but also a favorite of many advanced players. I really fell in love [ ]Estimated Reading Time: 2 mins.

    After visiting Australia for a remarkably quick run of shows in following the album, here hopes that new Phoenix next year will also mean new Australian tour dates too. Considering it's still near-impossible to not hear a Phoenix track when you're out at those indie-rock-esque club nights nowadays, we'd say there's definitely still enough.
