Rumblin' & Rare – 24 More Boss Nuggets From Downey

CD (Item 621830) Ace (UK), Early 60s — Condition: New Copy
Out Of Stock


4.70 10

Raucous R&B-flavored rock instrumentals by The Rumblers – the second great compilation of their early-to-mid 60s material put together by Ace UK – and a superior one! It's got more of their great Downey singles from the period, along with previously unreleased gems. The rhythms rumble, alright – and they're nice and raw, too – but even more appealing is the way the sax and guitars play off of each other so brilliantly! The tracks on Rumblin' & Rare seems to have a bit more of a focused vibe than on the previous comp – we're guessing because the group really found and honed in on their sound, come '63 or so – but whatever the reason, it's incredible stuff! 24 tracks in all – many of of which were previously unreleased! Includes "Boss Drums", "Poor Boy", "Wockytok", "Slippin'", "Rumblin' & Stumblin'", "Saxwax", "Walkin' With The Boss", "Till Always", "Wedgee", "Charger", "The Nervous Set", "Lost Weekend", "Sweet Potato" and more.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Good Men
Ace (UK), Late 60s. New Copy
Good men, indeed – a mighty cool combo from the Houston scene of the late 60s – and a group who may well have been one of the trippiest things going down in Texas at the time! Neal Ford & The Fanatics have this great blend of fuzzy psych and raw garage – a vibe that's very ... CD

Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy
Not boppin in the jazz sense – but instead a raw, rocking set of sounds from the Louisiana scene at the start of the 60s – some really unique numbers that show why the state was definitely home to some of the most striking music of the time! Louisiana's usually hailed as a hotbed of ... CD

Galaxies (with bonus tacks)
SFP/Lion, 1974. New Copy Gatefold
Totally wonderful sounds from Laurance Vanay (aka Jacqueline Thibault) – an album that's heavy on keyboard sounds throughout – including these really moody Hammond organ lines that are handled in a style that's a lot closer to work on Fender Rhodes! The album's neither jazz nor prog ... CD

Evening Colours (with bonus tracks)
CAM/Lion, 1976. New Copy
Amazing music from Laurance Vanay – actually a recording name for Jacqueline Thibault, a hell of a great keyboardist but an artist the label thought would be better off billed as a man! The sound here is halfway between the spacey experiments of Brian Eno and Cluster, and some of the more ... CD

Pour Pauwels
EMI/Lion, 1971. New Copy
Lost legendary work from Guy Skornik – a heady set from early 70s France, and proof that there's a hell of a lot of greatness to discover on that scene! The album's got a blend of psych fuzz and deeper ideas that's not that far from Serge Gainsbourg – although the overall presentation ... CD
