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.

Following stints with Modern and Chess, legendary blues man John Lee Hooker joined forces with the esteemed Vee-Jay label out of Chicago in 1955. For the next 7 years Hooker cut some of the most explosive and legendary blues sides of his career and solidified his position as one of the greatest performers of the electric blues era. 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 first volume spans the years 1955-1958, and includes the titular “Mambo Chillun” a play on his classic hit, “Boogie Chillun”, as well as 16 more great late 50s blues sides.

Here one of the most famous groups in the history of Jazz is augmented by tenor saxophonist Dave Van Kreidt. All the music is composed by Van Kreidt and the overall sound is very different from the classic Brubeck set up.

An instrumental jazz album, it was released 2 years before Charles became an international superstar with the hit recording "What'd I Say". Though Charles was already nearly a decade deep into his recording career he'd yet to have a massive hit and was a difficult artist to pin down as his tastes ranged from jazz to pop to R&B. Featuring longtime band member David "Fathead" Newman and with help from the arranging and songwriting genius Quincy Jones, this is a beautiful, swinging, and laid-back jazz album necessary for any fans of Ray.

Release:1961 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
Credit for this album is partially due to Miles Davis, who had somewhat recently purchased Coltrane his first soprano saxophone, previously it had been little used in jazz. This 1961 album also seems to fully mark Coltrane's transformation into modal jazz, another Davis influence, and his modal take on the the classic standard, "My Favorite Things", from The Sound Of Music soundtrack, remains one of the more iconic jazz songs in history. Rounded out by 3 more standards, performed in modal interpretations that completely redefined the meaning of a "standards" album, My Favorite Things, is one of the many transcendent jazz albums the legendary John Coltrane is responsible for.

Genre:Organic Grooves
While so much attention is paid to his titles on Blue Note, Contemporary, and Prestige, Sonny Rollins' RCA sessions from the early '60s are some of his finest sessions and they don't get nearly the attention they deserve. In 1962 alone he released two classic titles, The Bridge and this album, What's New? Featuring Jim Hall on guitar and Candido on percussion among other heavy hissing session musicians, What's New? is particularly remarkable for the Rollins' originals including the blazing, Latin influenced "Jungoso" which features one of the most forceful solos of his career. A beautiful bossa-inspired bit of early '60s jazz that stands tall among the catalog of one of the true pillars of the tenor saxophone.

Release:1966 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
With Clifford Jordan on tenor, John Handy on alto, Jane Getz on piano, and Dannie Richmond on drums, Charles Mingus went into San Francisco and whipped up a storm. This LP contains two compositions over 23-minutes each: “New Fables” and “Meditation (For A Pair Of Wire Cutters).” “New Fables” features a ten-minute solo from Jordan, some fine ensemble work, and a solo encounter from Handy. Mingus changes the mood as he sees fit, and one would describe these different styles as avant-garde (in 1964), blues, flamenco, and straight-ahead jazz. Handy’s work is stirring, deeply imaginative, technically thrilling, and a harbinger of what was to come the following year at Monterey. In “Meditations” Mingus bowing the bass in the cello range with that certain sad quality, Jane Getz playing loose, free, and exciting, much as she does today, and a moment where Mingus joins Getz for a fourhanded piano romp. The piece is a flowing ballad, but there are constant changes throughout(...) (allaboutjazz)

Release:1960 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
The second album by Ornette Coleman’s legendary quartet featuring Don Cherry, Charlie Haden, and Billy Higgins, Change of the Century is every bit the equal of the monumental The Shape of Jazz to Come, showcasing a group that was growing ever more confident in its revolutionary approach and the chemistry in the bandmembers’ interplay. When Coleman concentrates on melody, his main themes are catchier, and when the pieces emphasize group interaction, the improvisation is freer. Two of Coleman’s most memorable classic compositions are here in their original forms -- “Ramblin’” has all the swing and swagger of the blues, and “Una Muy Bonita” is oddly disjointed, its theme stopping and starting in totally unexpected places. An American free-jazz classic from one of the biggest names in the genre.

Huddie William Ledbetter, better known to the world as Leadbelly, was one of the most celebrated guitarists and vocalists of 20th century American music. He introduced the world to many traditional folk and gospel songs and his versions remain some of the most well known and beautiful ever cut to tape. Born on a plantation in Louisiana in 1888, Leadbelly got his start as a teenager performing in the red-light district of Shreveport. "Discovered" by the legendary folklorists John and Alan Lomax while Leadbelly was serving time in Angola state prison for attempted murder. They recorded him while in prison and in 1934, at the age of 46, made these recordings, the first commercial recordings of his career. Featuring a wide repertoire of folk and blues songs along with his powerful voice and unique guitar style, these tracks are absolute cornerstones of American folk and blues music and some of the greatest tracks he ever cut.

Mance Lipscomb - born Beau De Glen Lipscomb near Navasota, Texas in 1895, and nicknamed Mance (short for emancipation) by a childhood friend - was an incredible guitarist and blues singers who didn't make a recording until the age of 65. Discovered during the folk and blues revival of the late '50s and early '60s Lipscomb would record regularly until his death in 1976 at the age of 80. A tenant farmer for most of his life, Lipscomb was the son of a former slave father and half-Choctaw Indian mother. He began playing guitar early in his life and spent most of his life performing at "Saturday night suppers" hosted by local friends or, often, by himself and his wife. After his discovery, Lipscomb would go on to perform at the first ever Monterey Folk Festival in 1963 as well as at numerous clubs of the folk-revival, most notable The Ash Grove in Los Angeles. Collected here are his earliest recordings, from 1960, and they are some of the most beautiful and transcendent of Texas folk-blues. Crucial recordings from one of the greatest individual voices of the folk and blues revival.

A bit of an anomaly in the B.B. King catalog, this 1962 LP is all instrumental tracks in the guitar driven pop-blues style of early Freddie King. Originally released on Crown - which was part of the RPM/Modern/Kent umbrella that B.B. King had recorded for since nearly the beginning of his career 10+ years before - this is a collection that was aimed at the burgeoning white market for R&B and blues and is therefore a little more pop-oriented than previous releases but that lends a charm to these recordings not often found on other King releases. Killer R&B/blues instrumentals from one of the greatest guitarists of the 20th Century.

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.
Robert Johnson - Drunken Hearted Man
Robert Johnson
Drunken Hearted Man
LP | 2015 | EU | Reissue (Wax Love)
12,99 €*
Release:2015 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
A collection of the finest moments of the only two known recording sessions by the King of Delta Blues, Robert Johnson. A man whose poorly documented life and death at 27 have given rise to much legend in the last 30 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. Featuring all-time classics such as “I believe I’ll Dust My Broom” or “Kind Hearted Woman Blues”, this is mandatory for all early folk and blues aficionados!

Recorded July 24, 1962 at the 3rd International Jazz Festival D'Antibes/Juan-Les-Pins, this is classic 1960s Dizzy. It’s smooth and swinging without losing any of his patented power. Produced by Quincy Jones, and featuring piano and arrangements from Argentinian master Lalo Schifrin, Gillespie shines here alongside underrated reed man Leo Wright. A great early 60s Dizzy group absolutely slaying live to a receptive audience.

Aretha Franklin
The First 12 Sides

Release:1972 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
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.

Released in March of 1962, Bob Dylan’s debut album announced the arrival of a singer-songwriter who would change the face of 20th century music and popular culture. Though it was Freewheelin’ the following year that would make him an international star and the voice of a generation, this debut is a crucial piece of folk music history and a stunning example of his early song-craft. Back in print with a beautifully redesigned cover on Wax Love.
