Genre: Rock n Roll, Soul, Pop, Funk / Label: Eric Records

Of course, the star attractions here are the amazing 30 Stereo Debuts that read like a who’s who of 60s pop & rock: “The Loco-Motion,” “Hey! Baby,” “Hey Paula,” “Little Children,” “As Tears Go By” and even two great instrumentals, the sultry sax of “Harlem Nocturne” and the glorious stereo twang and cattle calls of “(Ghost) Riders in the Sky.” But we don’t mean to forget The Honeycombs’ foot-stomper “Have I The Right?” or the thundering drum guitar organ intro from “California Sun.” You’ve just never heard them like this!

Harry Belafonte - Swing Dat Hammer
Vocal, Pop, Jazz | FLAC (tracks) 24-bit/96 kHz | 38:35 min | 833 MB | Front Cover
Label: RCA/Legacy | Tracks: 10 | Rls.date: 1960/2016

An album focusing on music of chain gangs, this record is as explosive and powerful as any in Belafonte's catalog. Accompanied again by the Belafonte Folk Singers and the occasional guitar and bass (with conductor Bob Corman credited under his real name, Robert De Cormier), Belafonte turns the hypnotic, rhythmic chants of Negro prisoners into riveting, passionate songs of unrelenting loneliness and shame ("Swing Dat Hammer"), torturous days laboring in the hot sun ("Go Down Old Hannah"), hatred for their captors ("Grizzly Bear") and even their guard dogs ("Here Rattler Here").

Label: Hip-O Select | Rel: 2009

One of the great things about Bo Diddley, something that often goes unmentioned, is that he was a home-recording pioneer, building his own studio years before any other rocker. The full fruits of this labor can be heard on Ride On: The Chess Masters, Vol. 3 1960-1961, Hip-O Select's third installment in their complete Bo Chess/Checker masters and easily the weirdest set yet. All 54 songs here were recorded over the course of 13 months: a whopping 17 them have never been released (an additional seven have never seen release in the U.S.), every one of them was cut in his home studio in Washington DC, and not a one reached the charts.

This collection shows Mr. Diddley expanding his musical base far and wide, including adding a second guitarist, emphasizing melodies very different than his original blues base, and working on a number of intriguing guitar and rhythm-based instrumentals.This volume is a treasure trove of Diddley-ized rare gems. 23 previously unreleased songs or alternates plus many tracks seeing life on CD for the first time in the U.S. and sometimes anywhere. The double CD also includes insightful liner notes by Diddley biographer/discographer George R. White, plus complete track by track credits.
