ACHTERGRONDINFORMATIE ** BACKGROUND

DAVE MASON, HELLIONS, TRAFFIC

THE HELLIONS : Jim Capaldi drums, lead vocal, Gordon Jackson rhythm guitar, vocal; Dave Mason lead guitar, vocal (joined in 1964); Dave Meredith bass guitar, vocal; John “Poli” Palmer drums, flute, vibes (joined in 1965).
This talented group was a part of the thriving Worcester beat scene in the early 1960s. Some of the members went on to be involved in the formation of well known and internationally acclaimed bands including Traffic. (…)  The Hellions first single, entitled ‘Daydreaming Of You’, composed by  Jackie De Shannon, was produced by Kim Fowley.
By 1966 (…) their record company issued a final Hellions single entitled ‘Hallelujah’ but under the group name of “The Revolution” (the band did not find out about this until after the single’s release). By this time, Dave Mason had left to play guitar with a few other local groups while earning extra money working as a roadie for The Spencer Davis Group. Undaunted, Jim Capaldi brought guitarist Luther Grosvenor (born 23 December, 1949 in Evesham) formerly from a group called ‘The Wavelengths’ into the line-up and the band’s name was changed to ‘Deep Feeling’ (see Deep Feeling).

HUMBLIE PIE: ROCKIN’ THE FILLMORE COMPLETE RECORDINGS

The double live album was a staple of rock and roll in the early years of the 1970s, and many of those recordings were captured from the stage of the Fillmore East. They recorded four shows over two nights at the end of May 1971, and from those recordings crafted the double live album Performance – Rockin’ the Fillmore. Released that November, it was the breakthrough Humble Pie had hoped for, reaching #21 on the Billboard charts and Gold sales status from the RIAA. For over 40 years, that double album has been the definitive document of the original Humble Pie line-up of Steve Marriott,  Peter Frampton, Greg Ridley and Jerry Shirley. Now Omnivore Recordings has released a box set of those four complete shows and displaced that prior construction as the pinnacle of the original Humble Pie.

When they left the studio for the stage, Humble Pie became something different altogether. Freed of the strictures of three minute long radio-friendly material, the four musicians came into their own. No longer was it Frampton extracting pop melodies from Marriott’s heavy R&B sensibilities, or Marriott dragging Frampton into a blues framework on a track-by-track basis. As this recording shows, their live partnership wasn’t a capitulation of one’s style to serve the other’s needs. It was two artists constantly pulling away from each other, with the tension of their inherently different approaches held in equilibrium by the rhythm section of Ridley and Shirley.

THE SOFT SIDE OF 1967: SCOTT WALKER: SCOTT (1st solo album)

“Scott was released only six months after Walker’s third album with The Walker Brothers, Images. Its mixture of Walker’s original compositions and selection of cover versions established Walker as a more serious and sombre artist; gone were the Beat group and Blue-eyed soul material of his former group. The choice of material generally fell into four main categories: his own work (“Montague Terrace (In Blue)”, “Such a Small Love”, “Always Coming Back to You”), contemporary covers (“The Lady Came from Baltimore”, “Angelica”), movie songs (“You’re Gonna Hear From Me”, “Through a Long and Sleepless Night”) and significantly, English-translated versions of the songs of the Belgian musician and songwriter Jacques Brel (“Mathilde”, “My Death”, “Amsterdam”). Brel was a major influence on Walker’s own compositions, and Walker included Brel material on his first three solo albums. Walker described Brel without qualification as ‘the most significant singer-songwriter in the world’.  The real coup for Walker was his luck in acquiring and recording the new Mort Shuman-translated versions of Brel’s material before anyone else”.  (Source Wiki)

SUPER UPER BLUES BAND

“Super Super Blues Band started out merely as Super Blues, a conglomerate of blues pillars Bo Diddley, Muddy Waters and Little Walter. When Little Walter bowed out and was replaced by Howlin’ Wolf, they rightfully threw another Super on the name, and went on to release this burning, irreverent and even sometimes hilarious set of drunken, wild-eyed electric blues. Long form jams roll on in a trance as the trio of blues legends flex egos, talking shit to each other, trading off leads and ducking blasts of unexpected wah-wah guitar lines. Songs are peppered with an incredible level of banter between the trio of bandleaders that predicts the call and response singtalking of early hip hop, laced with random screams in the background that teeter between celebration and danger. That these three ever got into the same room together is a miracle, and that they produced something so intense, energetic and weird is another almost unbelievable feat. The record is special enough as a stand-alone document of this meeting/melting of the minds before you fnd out the backing band consists of Hubert Sumlin, Otis Spann and freaking Buddy Guy. Lordy. Might have needed one more ”super” in there”. (Source: fatbeats.com)
