10,99 €*
Release:2018 / EU – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
In a long line of rock and roll outsiders hailing from Ohio, Screamin' Jay Hawkins may very well be the first. Born and raised in Cleveland, Hawkins' 1956 single 'I Put A Spell On You' is one of the most instantly recognizable songs in the history of R 'n' B and rock. Baptize Me in Wine compiles that classic track along with 18 other specimens of pure, unhinged, guttural R 'n' B madness into what is sure to be considered the definitive Hawkins' collection on the vinyl market. Most tracks were originally released as singles on the Okeh label except for the last four, which are outtakes from the first album. Before Devo, before Pere Ubu, before Guided By Voices, there was Screamin' Jay. There really must be something in the water out there.

The Breakfast At Tiffany’s soundtrack is probably best remembered for Audrey Hepburn’s legendary performance of Mancini’s “Moon River” (lyrics by Johnny Mercer), which won an Academy Award for Best Song that year. “Moon River” went on to become one of the best loved songs of all time, but it first made its appearance here, in Breakfast At Tiffany’s.

By the 1960s the folk and blues revival would make international stars of many blues performers but at the time of these Vee-Jay recordings this was music made by African-Americans mostly for the African-American market, from Chicago to the South to Los Angeles and New York and points between, and Vee-Jay was one of the first and most successful African-American owned record labels. While many of his earlier sides featured only Hooker on guitar and vocals, his Vee-Jay sides feature a full rocking rhythm section. Essential sides from one of the all-time greatest American performers of the 20th century. This second volumes spans the years 1959-1962 and includes classics like “Boom Boom”, “Want Ad Blues”, and 16 more great Hooker blues joints.

Formed in 1961 when Dennis Wilson, the only Beach Boy to regularly visit the beach, asked his brother Brian to write a song about the sport of surfing. The Beach Boys reached number 75 in national charts with their first single (the resultant song 'Surfin'') and were immediately signed to a major label. Though many debut albums in the early '60s were mainly built around a few smash-hits, the Beach Boys' 1962 full length debut on Capitol (featuring such hits as 'Surfin' Safari,' '409' and their version of the Eddie Cochran classic 'Summertime Blues') remains one of the greatest first steps in American pop culture, and a mandatory chapter in the history of rock and roll.

Lift to the Scaffold or, in the original French title, Ascenseur pour l'échafaud, is a brilliant film noir from 1958 that helped to establish the Nouvelle Vague and the New Modern Cinema scenes. No less brilliant is the score, composed by Miles Davis and featuring mostly French musicians, including the great Barney Wilen on tenor saxophone, as well as Kenny Clarke on drums, this is some of the most lonesome and morose music Davis recorded in his career. Perfectly matching the stark, dangerous, and grim moods of the film, this is a truly amazing score by one of the biggest names in jazz music history.

A collection of some of the finest moments of the only two known recording sessions by the King of Delta Blues, Robert Johnson, made in Dallas and San Antonio in 1936 and 1937. A man whose poorly documented life and death at 27 have given rise to much legend in the last 75+ years, Johnson had little or none public recognition for his work in his lifetime. Rumored to have sold his soul at the crossroads to achieve success, Robert Johnson lived his whole life playing at street corners and Saturday night dances, writing the soundtrack for half a century of rock culture to come.

Late 1962 and early 1963 were a period of transition for Miles Davis. He had health issues and his original quintet from the 1950s was on its last legs. He played with a variety of hired hands while working on assembling a new quintet. Seven Steps To Heaven collected various recordings from LA and New York, and the New York recordings are particularly interesting because they feature the 17 year old Tony Williams, as well as Ron Carter, and Herbie Hancock, 3 of the brilliant players that would make up Davis’ working Quintet for the next several years. While comprised of various players and sessions, Seven Steps To Heaven is still a beautiful album from the legendary trumpet player well worthy of inclusion among his finest works.

Genre:Rock / Indie
The full-length debut by the man known as the originator of rock and roll should need no introduction. Though never a top seller on par with his Chess Records rival Chuck Berry, Bo produced a catalog of classics to compete with all but a handful of the best early rockers, pushing rock and roll to its funkiest ever. The Bo Diddley beat--that 'bomp, ba-bomp-bomp, bomp-bomp' to which the pop-garage 1965 hit 'I Want Candy' by the Strangeloves owes everything--is one of rock and roll's bedrock rhythms, showing up in the work of Buddy Holly, the Velvet Underground, and the Rolling Stones to name but a few. An all time classic that stretched back as far as Africa for its roots, and looked as far into the future as rap, while still remaining a milestone in the transition from blues to early rock and roll.

The great Eddie Cochran, an early rock and roll legend rivaled only by the likes of Elvis, and his good friends Buddy, and Richie, was gone before his 22nd birthday, the victim of a taxi cab crash while on tour in England. It's hard to imagine, when listening to Cochran's body of work, that one man could record so much classic material in such a brief period of time. Cochran's first solo release came in 1956, and in less than 5 years he recorded dozens of singles, including 7 chart hits in the USA, and a number more in the UK. This comp includes some of his biggest hits as well as numerous b-side rarities, showcasing the breadth and depth of this legendary early rock and roller.

Though he's been dead for nearly 50 years, Joe Meek remains one of the most fascinating and influential figures in British pop music.

Though only 37 at the time of his death Meek left a large body of work rivaled only by his equally inspired/insane competitor across the pond, Phil Spector. This brand new collection on Wax Love bring 18 of Meek's finest early '60s pop productions back to life on vinyl, the format they were made for. Dig in!

Perhaps the greatest crossover artist that ever was, it is impossible to overstate the impact that Ray Charles had on the evolution of both R&B and rock 'n' roll. Charles' distinctive style transcended genres and influenced musicians from every musical background and from every corner of the globe, but it was during the mid-fifties that Charles really began to rule the R&B charts. His legendary debut LP - originally released in 1957 (and later renamed Hallelujah! I Love Her So) for Atlantic - was essentially a collection of those hit singles. In 1955 Ray had his first number one hit, 'I've Got A Woman,' followed by his second and third number one hits, 'A Fool For You,' and 'Drown in My Own Tears,' over just the next few months. Almost all of the remaining tracks on the album were also top ten hits from that same period, including 'Greenbacks,' 'Hallelujah I Love Her So,' and 'This Little Girl of Mine.' This was undoubtedly the era that defined the legend."

By far one of the most outrageous performers of the early years of rock, prone to emerging from coffins on stage, with a flaming skull named Henry as his constant companion, Screamin' Jay was an insanely theatrical figure long before it was even remotely acceptable. His 1958 debut, At Home, featuring his legendary 'I Put A Spell On You,' along with surreal hits like 'Hong Kong,' 'Take Me Back To The Boot And Saddle,' or his wild-ass reinventions of old standards like 'I Love Paris' and 'Deep Purple' is a carefully arranged yet gritty, Ray Charles-gone-crazy styled, full band rhythm and blues masterpiece, filled with enough howls and groans to send chills down your spine.

Before Aretha hit big with her stomping southern soul sound in the late 60s, she’d already had quite a career. Beginning as a gospel singer Franklin spent the early 60s recording in a variety of styles to varying success. While her other releases were overproduced and poppy, these very early recordings with the Ray Bryant group are beautiful jazz vocal stylings in the manner of Sarah Vaughan or Ella Fitzgerald. Beautifully recorded with no overdubs this is fantastic early 60s jazz and her voice is as perfect a fit for this material as it is for the soul she’s famous for.
