✨✧ VariousAmerican Folk Blues Festival – Live In Paris 20 Octobre 1962 (3CD set) ... CD
Fremeaux & Associates (France), 1962. New Copy 3 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A beautifully-recorded concert from early 60s Paris – one done as part of the legendary folk-blues tour, and featuring a great selection of musicians, all with introductions from Memphis Slim! Slim's a hell of an MC for the event, and really provides this warm context that seems to open up the singers and musicians – who play here in a style that's every bit as crucial and faithfully handled as some of the early 60s blues performances at Newport – with none of the fake modes you might fear from a performance of blues for European audiences. The 3CD package seems to capture the entire concert, even in the way that Memphis Slim helps move from artist to artist – and in addition to solo performances by John Lee Hooker, Shakey Jake, Willie Dixon, Sonny Terry & Brownie McGhee, T Bone Walker, and Helen Humes – there's also a few numbers by the full ensemble of singers too.

✨✧ Nancy WilsonSon Of A Preacher Man/Hurt So Bad ... CD
Capitol/ (UK), 1969. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Two overlooked Capitol albums from Nancy Wilson – back to back on a single CD! First up is Son Of A Preacher Man – a wonderfully groovy album from Nancy Wilson – filled with hip jazzy touches and lots of bouncy soul – in that sweet blend that was a perfect fit for the style of late 60s Capitol Records! Nancy really steps out from some of her more staid modes here – swinging a groove with some bad-rapping late 60s styles, yet still also reminding us that she's a sophisticated lady on some of the record's more adult tracks too. Arrangements are by the trio of Jimmy Jones, Phil Wright, and Joe Parnello – each of whom bring a different feel to the record, and help create a strong sense of variety amongst tracks that include "Son Of A Preacher Man", "Make The World Go Away", "I Made You This Way", "Husbands & Wives", "Mr Walker It's Over", "Almost Persuaded", and "Got It Together". Hurt So Bad continues the groovy late 60s sound of Nancy Wilson at Capitol Records – that unique blend of jazz and soul that seemed to inspire a whole host of imitations at the time! Nancy's still the best of the bunch at this sort of groove, though – and the arrangements here shift nicely between bouncy soul tracks and mature mellower ballads – handled with just the right sensitivity through charts by Jimmy Jones, Phil Wright, Billy May, and Oliver Nelson. Some of the best tracks are the ones with Phil Wright – like the covers of "Hurt So Bad", "Willie & Laura Mae Jones", and "You're All I Need To Get By" – which all really showcase the new soaring side of Wilson's talents. Yet the other work is plenty great too – definitely head and shoulders above the rest – on cuts that include a funky take on "Spinning Wheel", plus "One Soft Night", "Ages Ago", "Come Back To Me", and "Let's Make The Most Of A Beautiful Thing".
