If I Had A Pair Of Wings: Jamaican Doo Wop Volume 3
Tape | 2020 | EU | Original (Death Is Not The End)
8,99 €*
Release:2020 / EU – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
A third and final volume of Jamaican doo wop & R&B records taken from the late 50s and early 60s.

These records represent a period in which sound-systems were beginning to dominate the island, with Duke Reid and Sir Coxsone Dodd stepping up their rivalry by beginning to make and release their own records rather than rely on US imports for use in their dances. Many of these records are definitely more-or-less imitations of the American records, as the uniquely Jamaican ska sound was yet to take hold - however many of the future stars of ska, rocksteady and reggae were beginning to cut their teeth in the industry on these records, incl. Alton Ellis, Derrick Morgan, Derrick Harriott and more, and provide a unique view into the fledgling independent record industry culture in Jamaica that would prove to be unbelievably prolific and unparalleled for an island of it's size.

Hiski Salomaa - Longing For Freedom

Longing For Freedom
Tape | 2020 | EU | Original (Death Is Not The End)
8,99 €*
Release:2020 / EU – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Death Is Not The End issue all 18 sides recorded by the enigmatic Finnish-American Hiski Salomaa, who would come to be known as "The Finnish Woody Guthrie" for his songs of working life and association with the labour movement.
----------
Hiski Salomaa began his life in 1891 in Kangasniemi in the Southern Savonia region of Finland, emigrating to the USA after the death of his mother in 1909 - travelling via Hanko, to Hull, Liverpool, Ellis Island, Manhattan, and finally to a Finnish American community in the South Range of Michigan.

After taking to writing and performing songs as a young boy, Salomaa realised there was a demand amongst the Finnish immigrant set for music performed in their own language and indeed in the Finnglish dialect common at the time. With his unique vocal, he told stories of immigrant life and society which resonated with his intended audience, particularly in the shadow of the labour movement that had strong support in immigrant worker communities. Through the mid 1920s to early part of the 1930s Salomaa became a popular attraction at the Finnish Worker's House in Manhattan, and would cut these 18 sides for Columbia during this period, though his career seems to have been stymied by the great recession.

The recordings Salomaa made for Columbia found favour in Finland toward the end of World War II after being picked up by left-wing athlete (and later singer and actor) Tapio Rautavaara for airplay on Maaselä Front Radio, and later gained attention on Finland's national radio YLE. This enigmatic Finnish American performer would come to be adopted into some hearts as the country's answer to Woody Guthrie, and became somewhat of a talisman for the Finnish left.

However, it has been uncovered in Markku Salomaa's recent book on the life of Hiski, entitled Vapauden kaiho (after his most recognisable track, trans: Longing for Freedom), that this ideal is somewhat far from the real truth. Despite having once apparently been an IWW member, a picture emerges of Salomaa having merely been playing to the views of his crowd - and taking the corresponding cheque - without holding those views himself. Worse still, it's alleged that he was a card-carrying republican.

Still, hopefully you will enjoy these recordings nevertheless!

If I Had A Pair Of Wings: Jamaican Doo Wop Volume 2
LP | 2020 | EU | Original (Death Is Not The End)
18,99 €* 19,99 € -5%
Release:2020 / EU – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
Limited Vinyl LP edition! The second volume in a two-part collection of Jamaican doo wop from the late 1950s through to the early 1960 represents a period in which sound systems began to dominate the island, and were starting to step up their rivalry by beginning to record heir own platters rather than rely on imports to gain the competitive edge. With the uniquely Jamaican ska craze yet to fully catch hold, these tracks are largely imitative of the sounds that had been reaching the island from American shores, albeit peppered with hints of what was to come ~ some of the future stars of ska, rocksteady and reggae are starting to cut their teeth here on these records, providing a unique view into the fledgling industry at a time of creative flux.
