This is the Shangri-Las debut album, originally released in on the Red Bird label. It had never been released on CD until recently. There are a number of album tracks featured here which had never been released on CD previously, despite the many official compilations released up until this point.
Fully remastered, it now contains 7 bonus tracks:. This is the second Shangri-Las album, originally released in on the Red Bird label. This is the third and final Shangri-Las album, a compilation originally released in on the Mercury label. It has never been released on CD. This is my own compilation using all the original mono mixes from the highest quality digital sources of the 12 track album.
The label's first release was "Chapel of Love" by the Dixie Cups, which quickly reached number one on the Billboard Hota feat matched later that year by the Shangri-Las' "Leader of the Pack". Eleven of the first 30 singles released by Red Bird reached the Top Forty. All tracks are tagged correctly and in the correct running order of this compilation I have made. I actually own the original 7" single which I bought at Penny Lane in at a special price of only 35p!
I always remember the owner who I knew well getting upset with me and saying "You shouldn't be. Thing is I haven't played it in over 40 years, and always assumed the album version was the same recording. I have to agree with him, that the re-recorded 7" single version is far superior to the album version upon hearing it again for the first time in 41 years. The single version of the 'Echo Beach' follow up single. This re-recording is much better than the hum drum album version, and has never been released on CD.

William Ruhlmann of AllMusic gave the album a rating of 4 out of 5 stars, praising the instrumentation and writing that "it set up the commercial breakthrough enjoyed by the band's next album, Wishbone Fourbut over the years it came to be seen as the quintessential Wishbone Ash recording, the one that best realized the group's complex vision.

Retrieved 9 November London: Guinness World Records Limited. ISBN In the late 's he played in the band Three with his older brother and a junior high schoolmate, William Gerald Jerry Wooten on keyboards, performing at a local psychedelic youth club, the Glass Onion, and at Legion Halls and Time Was (1972) - Wishbone Ash - Tracks 2 (CD) functions.
This short-lived group covered bands such as Led Zeppelin and Cream, before West and Morse left to continue to play as a duet billed as the Dixie Dregs, until Morse's expulsion from school in the 10th grade. Inthe group compiled a recording of the project, releasing it on vinyl inand again on CD in as 'The Great Spectacular'.
When he graduated inhe and West officially named their group Dixie Dregs, adding Rod Morgenstein on drums, and began performing regularly, eventually gaining the attention of Capricorn Records, who signed the band in late Their first effort for Capricorn, the Morse-composed 'Free Fall', established him as an important newcomer to the fusion genre, being recognized for both his compositional skills and his musicianship, but despite receiving positive reviews as a pivotal jazz fusion album, it sold poorly.
The band were invited to perform at Montreux Jazz Festival on July 23,and the recorded performance was released the following year as 'Night Of The Living Dregs'. Capricorn went bankrupt in lateand the Dixie Dregs were left without a label, but were quickly signed to Arista Records, and released three albums for the label.
Around this time Morse started to add his guitar to records by other artists, and featured on an album by Liza Minelli Time Was (1972) - Wishbone Ash - Tracks 2 (CD)and with the Rob Cassels Band in Arista became increasingly concerned about Dixie Dregs' album sales and pressured the band to change their name to simply The Dregs, in an attempt to increase the band's visibility in the public eye.
Readers of Guitar Player magazine voted Morse 'Best Overall Guitarist' in their annual poll, an honour that he would hold for five consecutive years, but the band weren't happy with the constant touringand after fulfilling their commitment to Arista, the Dregs disbanded in early Before they broke up they backed Fiona Flanagan on demos of some songs that she'd written, and after the breakup Morse then formed the Steve Morse Band, a trio with bassist Jerry Peek and drummer Doug Morgan, who was replaced by Rod Morgenstein after Morgan left to fulfill previous commitments.
The group toured Germany in early and was signed by Elektra Records, who released 'The Introduction' album mid-year. In he was offered the chance to join Deep Purple, replacing Ritchie Blackmore, and played on all their studio albums from 's 'Purpendicular' onwards. In he began a collaboration with singer Sarah Spencer entitled Angelfire, and an album appeared in Augustafter which he formed Flying Colors inwhich was an American supergroup composed of Mike Portnoy, Dave LaRue, Casey McPherson and Neal Morse, with their debut eponymous album being released in Marchfollowed by 'Second Nature' in Morse continued to act as a session player for a wide variety of artists while still a member of all these bands, playing on over 40 albums after the timeframe of this compilation, but here we concentrate on the emergent talent at the beginning of his career.
Devo - Clockout Labels: Devo. Shirley Manson - Noir When Garbage were on hiatus in the second half of the 's, Shirley Manson set about working on a solo album, which reportedly featured a collaboration with Rivers Cuomo, but when she brought the material to her then-label Geffen, she was told it was 'too dark', as they had envisioned Manson having international radio hits and becoming the 'Annie Lennox of her generation'. She and Geffen subsequently parted ways and she continued working on solo material, and also considered leaving the music industry behind entirely, but then Garbage reunited and released albums in the 's, and the solo album was put on the back burner.
Some of the songs have since appeared online, with 'In The Snow' and 'Pretty Horses' surfacing infollowed by 'Lighten Up' the next year, and Manson posted 'Dark Hearts And Heart Beats' on her Facebook page inbut investigation has discovered that it was copyrighted inand was therefore part of the solo album recordings. Manson also collaborated with other artists, and provided songs for TV and film soundtracks throughout the decade, and so there are actually enough songs out there to make up a 'solo' album for her.
I've done a bit of work on 'Brass Muscles', which was a second piece that appeared on the soundtrack to the TV series 'Wet Hot American Summer', and by repeating the verse and chorus and then adding a coda to fade out I've expanded it to sound like an actual song of almost two minutes. Even on the collaborations Manson takes most of the lead vocals, and so by mixing her own demos with the duets we end up with a very creditable solo album from her, and as she used to refer to it as her 'noir record', that's what I've called it.
Labels: Shirley Manson. Kraftwerk - Pop Und Avantgarde In early Kraftwerk were on the cusp of international recognition with the imminent release of their 'Autobahn' album, when Time Was (1972) - Wishbone Ash - Tracks 2 (CD) were asked to perform at the large broadcasting hall of the Hessischer Rundfunk HR1 as part of a festival of music.
The theme was to be various minimalist musical concepts under the title "Between Pop And Avantgarde", with Kraftwerk performing their set on the 25 Januaryand with some of the performances being recorded and broadcast on German radio. The band played pieces from their three albums, as well as one from the forthcoming 'Autobahn' record, and as it was recorded for radio broadcast the sound quality is excellent.
There were some very long announcements in German throughout the broadcast which I've removed or edited out, so that we can enjoy the music uninterrupted, and although I don't Time Was (1972) - Wishbone Ash - Tracks 2 (CD) post live albums, this is of such historical importance that it deserves to be heard, as it features a line-up of the band which never made it to a recording studio.
Labels: Kraftwerk. He'd been working with the E Street Band at his home studio, Telegraph Hill Studios, which was actually a barn at his Holmdel, New Jersey property, and by early August there was an initial cut of 10 songs, with Columbia beginning to believe they might have a new Springsteen record in time for Christmas. A track sequence was prepared, and in September, Bob Clearmountain was brought in to mix twelve tracks.
Springsteen signed off on 'The Ties That Bind', and the tapes were sent off for mastering on October 15, but when they came back he suddenly cancelled the release, and went back to recording more songs.
He later said that he felt the songs lacked the kind of unity and conceptual intensity that he liked his music to have, and his manager and co-producer, Jon Landau, suggested that maybe this record needed to be a double album, in order to encompass everything Springsteen was trying to achieve.
After another seven months at the Power Station, the sessions came to an end, and 'The River' was released on October 17,including 20 of the 50 songs that had been recorded. Springsteen added darker material after he'd written the title track, and the album became noted for its mix of the frivolous next to the solemn, but he confirmed during an interview that this was intentional, as a deliberate contrast to his previous record.
Bootlegs have long circulated of 'The Ties That Bind', generally in excellent quality, as the album was mastered ready for release, but a major upgrade was carried out on the original tapes inmaking them sound even better.
What was remarkable in is that most tracks on this 'temporary assembly' of the album remained unreleased, with 'Cindy' being the one major 'River' outtakes that Springsteen was still sitting on, and the alternate verse in 'The Price You Pay' remains lost, while the rockabilly 'You Can Look But You Better Not Touch ' and the double-tracked vocal take of 'To Be True' had never seen the light of day.
The single album was eventually released as one of the discs in the box set release 'The Ties That Bind: The River Collection', but to my ears this bootleg just has the edge over that version, so give it a listen and see if you agree.
