Enjoy excellent music and artwork.
This four-CD, 100-song set is the best representative body of work ever assembled (or ever likely to be assembled) of the R&B and soul releases from Henry "Juggy Murray" Jones' Sue Records. The range of sounds runs the gamut from ex-Drifter Bobby Hendricks' first hit for the company ("Itchy Twitchy Feeling") in 1959, through the string of hits by Ike & Tina Turner, to the company's last hits some seven years later. Not only is every chart single that the label ever had represented, but so are club hits from the mid-'60s and solo sides by uniquely New York-associated figures. The contents of the box are almost ideal, along with their arrangement – in contrast some other box sets, this one follows strict release order, which is a great way to follow the history of the label (though not ideal for anyone, apart from owners of multi-disc players, who simply wants to hear the label's best-known tracks in one sitting).
This CD brings the firsts LPs that the Candoli brothers recorded together. They are accompanied by an impeccable rhythm section. This is jazz which is characteristic of California, in the most joyful and spectacular side of it, interpreted by first-rate jazz musicians. Complete 1957 and 1958 Dot albums: "The Brothers Candoli" + "Bell, Book and Candoli".
It's perhaps a little surprising that Cliff Richard never really had the same impact in the music scene on this side of the pond that he did in his native England. Richard has set untold records (no pun intended) in the British music industry, selling hundreds of millions of records and by some accounts becoming the biggest selling male artist in British history…
Backed by a new band line-up, Cliff Richard spectacularly returns on DVD; the only place to see the complete live set from Australia's iconic Sydney Opera House. Combining over 2 hours of Cliff's Rock 'n' Roll hits such as The Young Ones and Devil Woman with legendary favourites such as Reelin' and Rockin', Willie and the Hand Jive and Dream Lover, as well as featuring performance tracks from his new album like Rip it Up and Fabulous, this is Cliff's most rocking show in years! Exclusive extras go behind the scenes of Cliff's tour…
The Cameo Parkway boxed set that we all have been dreaming of, 115 tracks including 74 chart hits! Painstakingly assembled from the best sources possible (98% from the original tapes), and all in original mono, the tracks include performances by all of the label's stars and its one-hit wonders. A booklet tells the fascinating story of this label.
This is one of the more difficult Bear Family sets to take on simply because it is such an intimidating package. Never mind that Nelson is an American myth, having eked his way into that terrain by dying in a plane crash while still in his forties, and despite being managed by Colonel Tom Parker, he still looked fantastic despite the unsubstantiated rumors of drugs, alcoholism, and twisted sex that poured forth from the tabloids after his passing.
