This special collector's edition contains 30 remastered recordings by Charlie Feathers, consisting of a selection of the magnificent tunes he made at his peak for different labels (such as Sun, Meteor, Kay, Wal-May and King Records) between 1955 and 1962. All of his most famous songs and enduring singles are featured on this great CD, which is a quintessential testament to the true genius of rockabilly's main man, the late, great Charlie Feathers.
‘Dee Dee’s Feathers’ is the first collaboration of three-time Grammy Award winning jazz singer-songwriter Dee Dee Bridgewater, the New Orleans Jazz Orchestra’s (NOJO) and its Artistic Director and jazz trumpeter Irvin Mayfield. The album, the first new music by Dee Dee Bridgewater since 2010, will be available in Europe and Asia on April 20th, 2015. Dee Dee’s Feathers gives a modern vision of New Orleans, painted through traditional songs such as Big Chief, Saint James Infirmary, and What a Wonderful World along with new compositions Congo Square and C’est Ici Que Je T’aime, which will transport people through the newly constructed home of Dee Dee Bridgewater in the historic neighborhood of the Tremé.
Very few bands have what it takes to leaven their stoner rock with equal parts melody and exploratory noise. Their exhilarating fourth album, Feathers, is the DC-based group's best album by far, thanks in no small part to the addition of second guitarist Cory Shane. Half the album is so good–and so eclectic–it brings to mind the bass-heavy assault of classic Blue Cheer and Sabbath, the sweet confectioner's space-pop of Jack Drag and Brian Jonestown Massacre, and the locked groove swagger of Comets on Fire and Black Mountain. Dead Meadow aren't afraid to melt genre conventions; "at Her Open Door," for instance, is very Zepp-y but trippy and sugar-y sweet—almost like Bumble Puppy, but way better. "Stacy's Song" is levitating and beautiful, a reverb-saturated tune that showcases singer-guitarist Jason Simon's distinctive vocals.
Created by New York City-based burlesque star Jo Weldon, “Silk and Feathers” is an introduction to burlesque fan dance. Popularized by the ostrich feather fan dance act of Sally Rand in the 1930s, fan dance with striptease or the implication of a body reveal has become a globally-recognized staple of burlesque performance.
