ACHTERGRONDINFORMATIE ** BACKGROUND

NINA SIMONE: HIGH PRIESTESS OF SOUL

Simone “(…)  But the Alabama church bombing and the murder of Medgar Evers stopped that argument and with ‘Mississippi Goddam,’ I realized there was no turning back.”
Nina was deeply affected by these two events. In 1962, she had befriended noted playwright Lorraine Hansberry and spoke often with her about the Civil Rights Movement. While she was moved by her conversations with Hansberry, it took the killing of Medgar Evers and the four girls in Birmingham to act as catalysts for a transformation of Nina’s career.

“Classic work from Nina Simone – and an album that definitely lives up to its title! Nina Simone certainly emerged as the high priestess of soul during her monumental stretch for Philips Records in the 60s – as she moved way past jazz, way past some of the folk she’d begun tapping into, and into this new righteous territory that paved the way for countless other hip singers to come! Simone does a great job of mixing gutbuckety roots with hipper, 60s soul inflections – and the set’s a treasure trove of great tunes – including her awesome reading of “Work Song”, plus “Brown Eyed Handsome Man”, “Come Ye”, “I Hold No Grudge”, “I’m Going Back Home”, “I’m Gonna Leave You”, “Take Me To The Water”, and “The Gal From Joe’s”.  SOURCE: © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.  Disclaimer: Citation used for informative purposes only.

THE SMALL FACES: 1967 LP on Immediate
In the USA released as “There Are But 4 Small Faces, with a largely different track-listing. “Acoustic guitars were now as much a part of the colors used as electric and greater use of harmonies took a key spot in the prodeedings. Other studio effects, such as the phasing used on ‘Itchycoo Park,’ only added to the brew already stewing. Tracks like ‘Green Circles,’ ‘Become Like You,’ and ‘Get Yourself Together’ rank among the band’s finest efforts. They were able to retain the R&B/soul influences of their early sound, but mix it up with the more cerebral (pronounced, “stoned”) vibe that the new direction was drenched in”. Source:

BRITISH INVASION ALL-STARS
“The British Invasion All-Stars are a 21st century band with a ’60s sound, which isn’t surprising because all of its members are veteran rockers who belonged to various ’60s bands (some more prominent than others). (…) ormed in 2001, the British Invasion All-Stars boasts former-Yardbird Jim McCarty on drums and lead vocals, ex-Procol Harum member Matthew Fisher on electric Hammond organ, and Eddie Phillips (formerly of the Creation) on lead guitar. The three other members are Ray Phillips, of the Nashville Teens fame, on lead vocals, and two ex-members of the Downliners Sect: rhythm guitarist Don Craine and bassist Keith Grand (who contributes background vocals and shares the lead vocals with Phillips and McCarty). The British Invasion All-Stars’ self-titled debut album, which was released on the independent Mooreland Street label in 2002, shows no awareness of the alternative rock sounds of the early 2000s; the band is totally unaffected by any of the punk, new wave, post-punk, pop-metal, or alternative rock that came after the ’60s. From covers of well-known songs by the Yardbirds (“Shapes of Things”) and the Who (“Shakin’ All Over”), to new material, everything on the British Invasion All-Stars’ first album is unapologetically ’60s-minded. The CD boasts several guest musicians who have strong ’60s credentials, including bassist Noel Redding (who was one-third of the Jimi Hendrix Experience) and two ex-members of the Pretty Things: Dick Taylor and Phil May”.

JOHN LEE HOOKER: FROM CLARKSDALE TO HEAVEN
“John Lee Hooker passed away June 21, 2001, depriving the blues world of yet another pivotal artist whose influence will persist throughout the 21st century. From Clarksdale to Heaven, a tribute to Hooker, features 13 tracks—12 written by Hooker and one (“May the Circle Be Unbroken) arranged by him—plus an unreleased Hooker number, “Red House,” which he cut in 1989 as a tribute to Jimi Hendrix. Artists who contributed to Clarksdale include Jack Bruce, Jeff Beck, Andy Fairweather-Low, Mick Taylor, Peter Green/Splinter Group, and Hooker’s daughter, Zakiya. Particularly deep performances are delivered by Beck (“Hobo Blues”); Green (“Crawling King Snake”); Zakiya Hooker (“I Want to Hug You”); and Vince Converse, Leo Lyons, and Ric Lee (“Bad Like Jesse James”). This is a righteous tribute to a rare bluesman.”
