UC282 – Beats from the Boot – pt. 11


I admit we’re scratching the bottom of the Barolo barrel, tho’ I’m sure the pieces we found are all more than enjoyable. An d they should be all uncomped! Mostly, this time they come from (in)famous singing stars which may have had hits or won at the many San Remo blueprint "Festivals" of Italy, many of whom  enjoyed  a more or less long career, but accidently left the commercial road for a one off shot.  We’ll meet 12 yo boys (Mauro Ingafù), ladies who did a desperate latest jump on the Beat train (Wanda Romanelli), Italian singing guys from Spain (Los Marblau) and Germany (Wiking Groth) (both with heavy accents), only Yugoslavian pressings (Ennio Galli), and 2 unfortunate guys who died in a car crash at the age of 19 (Jean Luk)  or were electrocuted while taking a shower (Claude Francois, RiP). All in alphabetical order, this time, from 1962 to 1969 which creates a varying, mostly sunny soundscape with blows of fresh winds, and, sometimes, off the road cover versions that even top the original (like I’m a Believer, Sha la la la, and Barbara Ann)  I have to thank my friends from the fb page “Beat& Rock’n’Roll Italiano” (www.facebook.com/groups/160225698043329/) for many good leads to uncomped Italian nuggets (read: URL and yt links, all mentioned in the booklet). Also, for those who don’t speak Italian, I’ve translated the group’s name s and song titles, to give a slight idea of what the song might be about (from "When I was a baby " to Ugolino’s massively distorted "Oh whadda lovely day ‘t was”).  A Ulì Ulè!

UC281 - 60s (mostly) Uncomped - French Cuts, Episode Quattre

Bienvenue in the land of the Croques Monsieur! For the fourth time now, here’s more tunes from France. Unlike other nations, France didn’t have 1000s of Garage groups spread all over the nation , but quite a lot of more or less famous artists, most of them which a long string of well recorded (in professional studios), well promoted (via national TV and mags), and well produced singles, usually, 4 song EPs (which came in 4coloured picture envelopes), plus many LPs. Of all those records, many have been anthologized before, but as it will be difficult to get those collections outside of France, I occasionally have included some tracks that are too good to be missed (and sure won’t annoy you even if repeated). I hope that episode # 4 will shed another brilliant light on the brilliant (and elegant!) French combos and artists , with their unique way of interpretation (notwithstanding the language barrier). I also hope you speak a little French to understand the truly hilarious lyrics of many tracks. Pourée de Pommes de Terre, yeah!!!

UC280 - US Garage Gems, Pt. 40

Back again in Garageland!  This new set starts off with some proto Beat tracks (from 59 and 61) Rockabilly aficionados might be familiar with, and I don’t think they’ll complain. What follows are unheard 45 platters (I think), a live track and some tape recordings. All, more or less, in chronological order, so you can witness how Beat went to Pop and finally took the psychedelic road (before fizzling out in Super Group Rock, Art Rock, Classic Rock, Folk Rock, Hard Rock, Prog Rock, Rock Rock, …..). As you can expect, you get quite a hodgepodge of genres, mostly unissued tracks, while, exceptionally, I’ve thrown in the mix some tracks available to download (thanks Alona Dream’s Records for posting them on youtube). I hope you dig!

eYeGeNeYe - Int'l Twisters

After my "German Twisters" collection (https://michaelvee.livejournal.com/80373.html), an international set was overdue.
When Chubby Checker recorded the Hank Ballard and the Midnighters’ penned b - side “The Twist“ in early 1959, he sure had no idea what he had started. It went immediately no.1 on the national charts, and started 4 (!) years (1960 - 1963) of a craze that would not only sweep the nation but the entire word! A real phenomenon, that is. Don’t trust statements, like The Twist was a short dance craze, since 4 years, in pop music, is an extremely long time span! And the wave stranded on all beaches of the word, from Japan to Chile, from Yugoslavia to Mexico, from the Hillbilly lands to the Austrian Alps. After the Boogiewoogie, such thing had never happened before (and would never repeat itself). Follow up like the Hucklebuck, the Slop, the Mashed Potatoes, the Pony, and the Fly tried to pick up the trail, but to little avail. It just wasn’t the Twist.
What I love about the Twist -  and what probably is the secret of its success - , is the fact it can easily be associated with whatever. From Kissin’ Twist to Hound Dog Twist to Blind Mice Twist to Doorpost Twist to Tablecloth Twist, the combination always sounds sharp and makes half of the song.
Another thing I really love of the Twist is it’s innocence. Just pure fun, nothing more. You just had to be a good Twister, and you would get the cutest girl around (at least, twist with her until the cows come home; remember it was long before Ray Davies asked” Girl, I want to be with you / All Day and all of the Night!!!”)
So I hope you enjoy this set which was planned to be some kind of a sideshow to the phenomenon, focusing on rare and unusual versions from all the world that prove the immense conceptual and musical variety of a genre which, unfortunately, is much overseen and underestimated. And don’t send me your complaints and psychopathic counsel’s bills. Remember, it’s like Arch Hall says in “Twistin’Fever": “The doctor couldn’t fix her / ‘Cos he’s a Twister, too”. So let’s twist again brothers and sisters, Viens twister avec moi, vamos todos a bailar el Twist, Twist noch mal mit mir, Balliamo tutti il Twist!

UC279 - 60s (mostly) Uncomped, Girls with a Beat, from the Boot; Vol. 15

I admit, in 66, when listening to the "Euro Hit Parade", and before they started airing the "Italy" part, I used to switch to BFBS or Radio Luxemburg. What would come would mostly be of the “San Remo" festival and song contests (“like Cantagiro”, ecc) organized by national TV stations. Sugary songs that usually start with a glistening string crescendo, followed by (un)expected silence before the dramatic singer’s attack. Beyond all the kitschy bulk tho’, sometimes there were some flip sides that would show the more natural talent and the real passion and of the artists. I hope I’ve picked some of those tracks, still I have to admit we could be too close to the commercial side of it all. But as with all my “Girls with a Beat”, I  dig the sexy voices, all through, and the nice picture covers (shown in the booklet attached). All tracks come in simply alphabetical order, the red thread is the unique Italian sound. Spero che piaccia / I hope you dig!

UC278 - The Missing Yugo Tracks, Vol. 2


Welcome to the second trip through the Yugoslavian beat land. Admittedly, Yugo groups seem to miss the rough edge (usually, 45s were put out as 4 songs EPs, of which 3 were instros or ballads). And no fuzz pedals around before ’67. On the other hand, the rough edge is created by the stripped to the bone productions (and pressings). Moreover, you’ll get lots of covers, I assume there were no record imports from the UK or even the States then, so this was the only way to hear the newest beat hits in Yugoland. I love the insisting cowbell ( on I call your name), the wild and wacky organ (on I wanna be your man), the exploding drums (on Johhny B Goode), the weird echo (on Satisfaction), and the new wordings (to "Shapes of Things").

PS huge thanks go out to youtube Peđa Radović , and Lajso of https://jugorockforever.blogspot.com

PPS: to be complete, I will update the dead link for Missing Yugo Tracks Vol. 1

UC277 – 60s (mostly) Uncomped - Non-Garage 7


I promise next time I read song titles like “Me Make Um Pow Wow”, I won’t click it. Anyway, here’s another load of tunes I really don’t know where to file under, definitely not under "Garage” . Somewhere between Novelties, Blue Beat, Rockabilly, Doo Wop, Budget Beat, Latin, Soul, orchestral pop, Schlager, Crooner, Exotica, even C&W, somewhere in between.…Oddities is the best word that comes into my mind. 4 or 5 artists apart, all names were unknown to me. If you dig The Big Itch series, or the Trashcan CDs, you might like this double set as well, although my time frame is wider (this time, we go back as far as 1955 and end up in the 70s). All in alphabetical order, these tunes have one common denominator: FUN! I hope you dig!

You won’t believe it but after  only 4 month time we’re back again in the Italian Beat scene with some amazing new entries. . Naturally, when you scrape the barrel of non compiled tracks, you find yourself on the wacky side, so be patient if some songs might sound too stupid or too commercial to your rears, I hope I picked the fun ones tho’. For the rest, in quite chronological order from 61 – 71, you get some never heard gems from uncompiled artists (Spero / Crazi Boys, Pappagoni, Mike Leo Group, Icebergs, Hot Dogs) plus some overheard tracks off rare to find samplers and anthologies. There is no overlaps to any other commercial or private compilation, not even to the collections from the splendid Paradise ofGarage website, tho’ I might have nipped 1 or 2 tracks from Caveman. Finally, I hope  you don’t speak Italian (- anyway it’s mostly about love and romance - ), although some songs deliver amazing statements. Like Alberto (CD1, #6)who get his caresses from mamma but runs to his girl when mamma ‘s not around naming  her 'vice mamma' (Ti nomino vce mamma) . Remember, we’re in Italy!

Un-Lost Tommyknockers, The Rip-edition, RiP# 13

Well, I guess it’s about time to commemorate my friend the late Lolly Pope one more time. Continuing his Beat Wunderbar / Tommyknockers series, Rip # 13 yields a good charge of rare, (mostly) never compiled Brit beat. I’ve thrown a few overheard tracks by some better known artists in the mix that are featured on some anthologies, but the bulk of my selection presents groups that have missed any official or private compilation and step into the devoted community for the first time (Sabres, Solitairs, Grasshoppers, Campbelltown Zodiacs, Dedicated Men, Undergrads). I’ve also added some uncompiled budget beaters from the Top 6 and Embassy labels, whose versions will , although close to the originals, freshen up the experience of re-hearing the old staples. In opposite of my last US-compilation which sounded very "American", this here set sounds particularly British, at least to my ears. Which means it stands for that unique, well cradled, well cured, well played, sometimes slightly bizarre soundtrack you would get in the English caves and kellers. But now, let’s humbly plunder the sacristy of the British Beat Church, and follow the Sabers’ advice  “Dance little sister, to the Hully Gully Beat”!
