BACKGROUND

THE FACES BOX SET
The 5-cd box set “1970-1975 YOU CAN MAKE ME SING, DANCE  OR ANTHING” holds reissues of four albums with bonus  tracks and a fifth cd with stray singles and b-sides.  Some bonuses are short outtakes that sounds quite chaotic or otherwise rather irrelevant, but there are some nice alternate takes and above all very nice live versions released for the first time or hidden away for ages, such as their  take n “I Wish It Would  Rain from the Reading Festival , 1973

LOST IN PARIS BLUES BAND

Radio 68 has played  Paul Personne quite often, but  – apart from France that is – he remains an underrated singer-guitarist who is too often and unjustly so associated with bluesrock. Hopefully, this project will turn the tide and get him the recognition he deserves.

« L’album est le fruit d’une session improvisée aux studios Ferber en compagnie d’artistes d’exception. On y retrouve John Jorgenson, guitariste d’Elton John ou Bob Dylan. Robben Ford guitariste de blues et de jazz renommé, ayant notamment accompagné Miles Davis. Ron « Bumblefoot » Thal connu pour son étonnante carrière solo mais aussi pour avoir remplacé Slash et Buckethead dans Guns N’ Roses. La voix féminine de l’album est assurée par la chanteuse d’origine américaine Berverly Jo Scott, notamment jury de l’émission de télévision The Voice en Belgique. La section rythmique est quant à elle assurée par le bassiste Kevin Reveyrand et le batteur Francis Arnaud qui ont l’habitude d’accompagner la crème de la variété française. L’opus présente treize 13 reprises de standards blues, folk et rock, dont « One Good Man » (Janis Joplin), « Trouble No More » (Muddy Waters), « Watching The River Flow » (Bob Dylan). Paul Personne déclare : « Lost In Paris Blues Band est la rencontre improbable de musiciens libres, ouverts et disponibles à se réunir trois jours dans un studio parisien pour une session de Blues fun et amicale. La vie peut avoir de belles surprises. » (source : http://www.radiometal.com/article/news-paul-personne-album-lost-in-paris-blues-band,225563).
RADIO 68 PLAYS 2×3 tracks: three unsual covers (T. Waits, Dylan, L. Feathers- L. Hampton) and three covers of standards ** (thanks to V2 Records Belgium and Verycords / Ear Music http://www.ear-music.net/

DERROLL ADAMS:

“The Derroll Adams story begins with growing up in the back seats of cars in 1930s America, listening to early country and old-time music on the radio. The 1950s found him on the West coast where he wrote his celebrated song Portland Town and his life intersected with Pete Seeger, Odetta, Guy Carawan, Woody Guthrie, Will Geer, James Dean, Lord Buckley and eventually Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, with whom he came to Europe in 1957, never to go back.
He became a folk hero in Britain and Europe in the 1960s, appearing in the Bob Dylan Don’t Look Back film and with fans of his zen banjo playing and singing including Donovan, Bert Jansch, Wizz Jones, Billy Connolly, Rod Stewart, Ronnie Lane, Long John Baldry and many more. In 1972 he recorded his best album, Feelin’ Fine, for cult English label Village Thing.

Here it is on CD for the first time, in a triple-fold digipak, expanded with six tracks from another mid ’70s release and with guest musicians including Wizz Jones, Tucker Zimmerman, Roland Van Campenhout and Maggie Holland” (source: pr-sheet).

THE KINKS: FACE TO FACE

Face to Face” is an album by The Kinks released in 1966. The 2cd DeLuxe edition contains both mono and stereo versions,  plus tracks that were not selected for the LP, b-sides of singles taken from the album  and alternate takes.

“London was swinging in 1966. The papers said so. England won the World Cup at Wembley. Records by The Stones, The Beatles, and The Who were defining the epoch. The working man had fresh voice in a newly elected Labour government. Yet, Britain was a nation segregated by class and monetary divisions; a country of have’s and have not’s. Documenting the lives of the country’s dominant working classes were a minority of artists. Ken Loach’s ‘Cathy Come Home’ exposed a bleak reality of homelessness and poverty. Televised in the winter, the documentary’s influence could easily have come from The Kinks’ autumn chart hit. “Dead End Street was the epitome to me, of what the Kinks were all about” (…)   Source: http://danielrachel.com/writings/kinks-face-to-face/
