Jimi Hendrix

Jimi Hendrix

Jimi HendrixJames Marshall “Jimi” Hendrix (November 27, 1942, Seattle WA, USA – September 18, 1970, London, England) was an American musician, singer, songwriter, guitarist, innovator, and cultural icon. Lauded by music fans and critics alike, Hendrix is considered by many to be the most influential and talented electric guitarist in rock music history. He achieved worldwide fame in 1967 playing at the Monterey Pop Festival, then headlined the iconic 1969 Woodstock Festival before his sudden death in 1970, at the age of 27.

A self-taught musician, the left-handed Hendrix played a right-handed Fender Stratocaster guitar turned upside down and re-strung to suit him. As a rock guitarist, Hendrix exploited the sonic tools of feedback and distortion to an extent that previous pioneers (such as The Kinks’ Dave Davies, The Yardbirds’ Jeff Beck and The Who’s Pete Townshend) never achieved. He built upon the innovations and influences of blues stylists such as B.B. King, Albert King, Buddy Guy, T-Bone Walker, and Muddy Waters, and derived his musical style from rhythm and blues and soul guitarists such as Curtis Mayfield and Cornell Dupree, as well as the traditions of jazz. Hendrix was also inspired by rock pioneer Little Richard, having toured in Richard’s back-up band “The Upsetters” before forming his own rock group in 1966.

Hendrix sought to combine what he called “earth”, a blues, jazz, or funk driven rhythm accompaniment, with “space”, the high-pitched psychedelic sounds created by his guitar improvisations. He also integrated instruments rarely used in rock, such as the harpsichord, recorder, and glockenspiel. As a record producer, Hendrix was also an innovator in using the recording studio as an extension of his musical ideas: he was notably one of the first to experiment with stereophonic and phasing effects during the recording process. Hendrix was also an accomplished songwriter whose compositions have been performed by numerous artists.

All Ears

10 original song hits with a CB theme: When America falls in love it falls hard. And then it celebrates in song. So it is with Citizens Band 2-way radio, otherwise known as “ears”. This album, a real slice of Americana-mid-Seventies, tells it like on the open road. Music for every taste – pop, rock, soul, country, truckin’ – sung and told in the vernacular around which Good Buddies have built a cult of togetherness. “All Ears” is contemporary folk music for the “now” generation. And Radio Shack, who commissioned it, is like they say on TV, the only place you can find it.

Songs performed by Shirley & Squirrely (1), Randy Goodrum (2), Bob Gelotte (3), Ed Bernet (4, 10), Johnny Hemphill (5, 6), Mac Wiseman (7), Curtis Young (8), Oscar Ray (9).

David Bowie

David Bowie (David Robert Jones) was born on January 8, 1947 in Brixton, England is an English singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, producer, arranger and mixer, whose work spans more than four decades.

Throughout his career he has sold an estimated 136 million albums, and ranks among the ten best-selling acts in UK pop history.

Bowie first caught the eye and ear of the public in the autumn of 1969, when his space-age mini-melodrama “Space Oddity” reached the top five of the UK singles chart. After a three-year period of experimentation he re-emerged in 1972 during the glam-rock era under the guise of the flamboyant, androgynous alter ego Ziggy Stardust , spearheaded by the hit single “Starman” and the album The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars. The relatively short-lived Ziggy persona epitomised a career defined by consistent musical innovation, reinvention and striking visual presentation.

In 1975 Bowie achieved his first major American crossover success with the number-one single “Fame” and the hit album Young Americans, which the singer identified as ‘plastic soul’. The sound constituted a radical shift in style that initially alienated many of his UK devotees. He then confounded the expectations of both his record label and his American audiences by recording the minimalist and challenging 1977 album Low – the first of three collaborations with Brian Eno. His most experimental works to date, the so-called “Berlin Trilogy” nevertheless produced three UK top-five albums. The anthem-like, towering title track of the second work “Heroes” (1977) is widely regarded as a milestone in rock and pop.

After uneven commercial success in the late 1970s, Bowie hit big in 1980 with the UK number one “Ashes to Ashes” and its parent album, Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps). He paired with Queen for the 1981 UK chart-topper “Under Pressure”, but consolidated his commercial and, until then, most profitable sound in 1983 with the album Let’s Dance, which yielded the hit singles “China Girl”, “Modern Love” and, most famously, the title track.

Since the mid-80s only a handful of Bowie’s recordings have entered public consciousness, but his significance and influence remain undiminished.

The Happiest Days of Our Lives (Waters)

When we grew up and went to school
There were certain teachers who would
Hurt the children in any way they could
“Oof!” [someone being hit]
By pouring their derision
Upon anything we did
And exposing every weakness
However carefully hidden by the kids

But in the town, it was well known
When they got home at night, their fat and
Psychopathic wives would thrash them
Within inches of their lives.

Sir Paul, when asked the overall theme of this album, replied
(not an exact quote): “Domesticity, love, devotion”. Now a lot of
folks who don’t care for this album are probably objecting to this
intention–after all, isn’t rock music supposed to be rebellion and
social angst and related torments? What Paul does here he does beau-tifully: a homespun sound overflowing with…well…domesticity,
love, and devotion. I listen to this album (and Ram as well) and
his clear joy of being with Linda and away from his hassle-laden
former mates (alas!) is a wonder to listen to. And there is room
for some rock (Mama Miss America, Oo You), some fun (That Would be
Something, Man We was Lonely), some classic Paul singles (Maybe I’m Amazed, Every Night), some experimenting (Kreen-Akrore–what the heck is that??). A lovely album.
