compilation putting the ckbe t in the front sPat. There's a famous newsreel clip of a 1950s Southern hellfire preacher - Hank Snow's son, as it happens - denouncing rock'n'roll, claiming that what sent the kids over the edge was "the beat! the beat! the beat!". This fine collection shines the spotlight squarely on the people delivering that beat, none more so than the magnificent Jimmy Van Eaton, who drummed on 173 of the 330 songs issued during his time at Sun. He's on 14 of the 28 here, from Billy Riley's Red Hot to Jerry Lee's Whole Lotta Shakin' and Charlie Rich's
Press - Sly & Robbie present Taxi Gang In Discomix Style - Goldmine Magazine
Maybe it’s just me, but it’s impossible to hear a reggae retake of “Rainy Night in Georgia” without Prince Buster’s “Big Five’ leering its way into the room. But maybe not so much now, as Tinga Stewart turns in what we might call a more conventional cover… albeit one that is weighted down by the mighty Sly and Robbie, a terrific vocal take that edges ever so sweetly into a balls-out bullworking dub.

Due to the World War II shortage of shellac, a resin that was used in the manufacturing of 78 r.p.m. records, major labels such as RCA Victor and Columbia cut way back on recording music that appealed primarily to African Americans and other minority populations. largely limiting their focus to mainstream pop. Independent companies such as Gilt Edge. Juke Box. Philo. Exclusive and Apollo emerged to fill the void and soon dominated the blues and gospel markets.

Når man siger Jamaica, siger man ofte også Bob Marley eller reggae. Men udover Bob Marley, så er der næppe nogen jamaicanske musikere, der er så internationalt kendte og anerkendte som d’herrer Sly Dunbar (trommer) og Robbie Shakespeare (bass).

The Riddim Twins gik sammen i midten af 1970'erne efter i nogle år at have arbejdet hver for sig som professionelle studiemusikere og er uden sammenligning de mest anvendte studiemusikere på reggaeøen.

Rockabilly queen Wanda Jackson was red-hot in Japan in 1959, riding high on the strength of her torrid hit Fujiyama Mama. Maybe that's why Capitol's Japanese imprint unleashed a 10-inch compendium of some of Wanda's hottest rockers at right around the same time, including Mean Mean Man, Money Honey, Long Tall Sally and Party
Press - Sly & Robbie present Taxi Gang In Discomix Style - black grooves
Sly & Robbie Present Taxi Gang In Disco Mix Style 1978-1987 is a relatively short compilation chronicling the late ‘70s and ‘80s work of the most famous “riddim” section in reggae music. Sly Dunbar and Robbie Shakespeare’s work as producers was very influential in helping to create the sounds that Jamaican music would be known for during this period. Both Sly & Robbie got their start as sessions musicians (as a drummer and bass player, respectively) before moving over to the production side of things.

You gotta get your mind right before you tackle this one. A case of beer oughta do for starters. Roll up a couple of gorilla fingers, hang your stereo speakers out the windows of your shack or single-wide, stretch out in your lawn chair, crack open a cool one, and let 'er rip. Don't be botherin' with any of them new fangled dee-vices, your I-poodles or I-foamz or whatever. This stuff came from 45s, so it needs to be played out loud and in your and your neighbor's faces. In a perfect world, you'd be diggin' out your Sears and Roebuck Silvertone console and crankin that bastard up to 11 to get the maximum effect out of these bad boys. But vinyl is kinda scare these days, and even if you had the originals you'd need a handtruck and a strong back to cart this 250 track record collection around, so you gotta make do with CDs.

When George Jones died in 2013, at the age of 81, his standing as the greatest of male country vocalists had been in place for decades. As color artwork in this typically lavish new Bear Family Records set “George Jones: Birth of a Legend—The Truly Complete Starday and Mercury Recordings 1954-1961” illustrates, by the mid-1960s the Starday and Mercury labels for which he first recorded were touting him on LP covers—reasonably—as “King George” and “Country and Western #1 Male Singer.” In the decades that followed, the Texan’s singular, even mysterious genius for lyric interpretation, emotional nuance in performance and communication with audiences—and the evidence of over a hundred singles and even more albums—cemented that reputation.
