PARIS: CIDISC & JUKE BOX MAGAZINE
CIDISC is the name of a record fair held in Paris a few times a year, but in fact it’s much more than just record fair. As it happens, several artists and bands have a stall there, selling their latest records or releases, while talking to fans and autographing any items the collector has brought along. Several authors also have a stall there, selling and autographing their books – be it an autobiography or a study on a particular item related to pop music.
Moreover, there’s always a showcase or a concert – live at the premises – featuring sixties stars and younger artists who revive the genre, focusing France and the early sixties.
Almost everyone I’ve seen or met is most friendly and helpful, creating a very nice atmosphere where ego is out of place.
CIDISC is actually organised by JUKE BOX MAGAZINE and that explains everything, since JUKE BOX is the only French music magazine to keep the sixties alive. Apart from the mag itself, JUKE BOX releases books and records. Chief Editor Jacques Leblanc and his équipe are present all day and available to all visitors.
Next CIDISC: 17 and 18 January in the Espace Champeret, Paris.
French artists in this show are: TONY MARLOW (merci, Tony!) ** LES LIONCEAUX (merci, Willy!) ** EDDY MITCHELL ** DANY LOGAN & LES PIRATES ** LES CHATS SAUVAGES avec DICK RIVERS ** Avec l’aimable participation de Jacques Leblanc
“Free Angela” is a compilation cd released in 1971 to help raise funds for the liberation of black activist (and communist, oh my soul!) Angela Davis. Angela is still very much alive and kicking on the left bank… This beautiful soul cd features committed music and lyrics by Larry Saunders, Nitroglycerine, Tyrone Thomas, Brother Love, Soul Encyclopaedia and Dickie Wonder, and is available on cd (Secret Stash Records, Minneapolis, USA).
Secret Stash Records says:
“Amidst the socially and politically tumultuous 1960s and 1970s, Angela Davis emerged as one of the era’s most controversial figures. In the early 1970s, her arrest, incarceration, and trial made international headlines and inspired a movement to free her. In April of 2013 Free Angela & All Political Prisoners, an independent film about Davis was released to much critical acclaim, fetching awards at the Toronto International Film Festival Gala World Premiere, the London International Film Festival, as well as the Stockholm International Film Festival.
Originally released in 1971, the album Free Angela was sold to raise money for the National United Committee to Free Angela Davis. It was put together by Alexander Randolph – a singer, promoter, and record label owner from Virginia. The first half of the album was recorded in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, beginning with the title track by Larry Saunders. On his songs, Saunders’ vocals float above and transcend the ethereal backing of the Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section. His voice can be compared to singers like Donny Hathaway and Curtis Mayfield, but Saunders is his own man, with his own style. His work on this album is essential listening in the realm of socially conscious soul music. The second half of the album continues with solid mid-1960s rarities from Randolph’s Sound of Soul label. Sound of Soul has long been known to record collectors, with singles routinely fetching hundreds of dollars.
Working in coordination with Alexander Randolph, Secret Stash is excited to make available once again this soulful piece of history. Available on CD and vinyl, each contains an insert with detailed liner notes and photos: 8 pages of 11.5″ x 11.5″ for the LP and 32 page booklet for the CD. As always, the LP version includes a free digital download of the entire album and the CD version comes in a premium digipack. + Video
