LIMITED EDITION. SINGLE PRESSING ONLY. 'Fire-eating virtuoso' is how Stereo Review described the finales of the Rachmaninoff concertos recorded by pianist Rafael Orozco (1946-1996) with Edo de Waart. Collected here are the complete Philips recordings of one of Spain's piano aristocracy, winner of the 1966 Leeds Piano Competition. There is passion and poetry in equal measure, and an instinctive feeling for the ebb and flow of a phrase in these recordings of works by Chopin, Schumann, Liszt and Rachmaninoff. Barnstorming virtuosity from a distinguished member of Spain's piano aristocracy: the complete Philips albums of Rafael Orozco, including several recordings new to CD. At the age of 20, Rafael Orozco came to the world's attention at the 1966 Leeds Piano Competition. The fire and poetry of his Chopin, Liszt and Albéniz won him first prize, and then a contract with HMV/EMI which led to several acclaimed albums such as the Chopin Préludes.

Name any recording that you immediately associate with Country music legend Dolly Parton and there’s a better than average chance that she not only sang it, she wrote it too. Dolly has been recording regularly since the mid-60s and almost every major hit she has ever had (and quite a few minor ones too) she wrote or co-wrote. Somehow this important component of her overall musical skillset is all too frequently overlooked by the public at large, who know Dolly for her luminous public image and gregarious personality without necessarily realising that she is also a brilliant songwriter.

Collection of West Side Story's greatest musical moments reinterpreted by jazz greats such as Cal Tjader, Stan Kenton, the Dave Brubeck Quartet, Oscar Peterson Trio, Andre Previn with Shelly Manne and Red Mitchell, Annie Ross and Gerry Mulligan, Marian McPartland and others. Never before had there been a musical whose protagonists were 'youths of the street whose speech is acrid and ugly', and whose conduct is 'neurotic and savage'. This was not a show meant to entertain and to amuse with a romantic story and lifting music but one of revolt, struggle and tragedy. That it became such an astounding success all over the world is due to the breath-taking sequence of scenes of an ever-changing character and mood, in which melodrama, solo and ensemble singing, dialogue, ballet, and instrumental interludes follow each other in stark dramatic succession.

When post-Undertakers, Brian Epstein-managed UK/US group Lomax Alliance split in mid-1967, Jackie Lomax signed as a solo act with the nascent Apple while his three former colleagues returned to New York. After a US- only single (recorded with Lomax still involved) was issued in the name One, the trio renamed themselves Rain after their favourite Beatles B-side. With the assistance of Young Rascals engineer (and former Undertakers guitarist) Chris Huston, they cut an acetate-only album of original material that combined Beatles-indebted song construction and harmonies with an early Buffalo Springfield/Byrds-style West Coast feel. Despite playing in and around Los Angeles and San Francisco at such venues as the Whisky a Go-Go and the Fillmore, they were unable to place the LP, and split after a brief spell as The Gypsy Wizards Band. Now gaining its first-ever issue, 'Tomorrow Never Comes: The NYC Sessions 1967-1968' features a selection of superb original songs, three of which were reworked from the aborted Lomax Alliance LP, plus six previously unissued bonus tracks cut a few months later as The Gypsy Wizards Band.

The Steamhammer story began in the English south coast town of Worthing in 1967, and ended in 1972 after fourth album ‘Speech’ and the sudden death of drummer Mick Bradley. In between times they wowed ballroom and festival audiences with a bluesy, sometimes jazz-flavoured brand of rock, that went down particularly well in Europe. This anthology features all their best tracks, including ‘Junior’s Wailing’, a hit single in Germany (a cover version was, for many years, a staple of contemporaries Status Quo’s act). It also includes two extended ‘live’ tracks, ‘Riding On The L&N’ and ‘Hold That Train’, that hint at the band’s power on stage. Booklet with authoritative and extensive liner notes written by respected ‘Record Collector’ journalist Michael Heatley. Expertly remastered – superb sound - top quality reproduction. The best in the business!

Many of the selections on 'Alphabeat' were not even known to exist before the release of the compilation, and few connoisseurs of obscure late 60s pop, psych and prog will be disappointed with it's contents. Dubbed from a master supplied by a Belgian television company 'Foxy Lady' and 'Toad' were recorded live at a pop festival in mid 1968 and prove The Barrier to be as exciting on stage as on their best singles from the same year, whilst Mississippi impress with their heavy bluesy rock which is lifted from their lone and very rare 45 from 1970. The pigeonholeing of Breakthru as a lightweight pop act through their only single 'Ice Cream Tree' is devastatingly dismissed by the unveiling of 2 incendiary slices of psychedelically inclined rock recorded at a Birmingham studio in late 1967, and an unknown group who recorded at R.G Jones' OAK studios sound uncannily like The Game 3 years on with the slow burning 'First Back From Heaven'. The Pathfinders' 'Pumpkin Lantern' has appeared before on compilations on a number of occasions but thanks to the discovery of another acetate copy, it's presented here in premium quality together for the first time with it's previously ignored but very special rendering of the Bee Gees' 'To Love Somebody'.
