Ronnie Bird, de son vrai nom Ronald Méhu, est un chanteur de rock français, né à Boulogne-sur-Seine (Hauts-de-Seine) le 24 avril 1946. Il fréquente jusqu'en seconde le lycée Claude Bernard, qu'il quitte sur un conflit avec un professeur. Il a publié son premier enregistrement en 1964 chez Decca avec pour titre vedette Adieu à un ami, qui était un hommage à Buddy Holly. Il compte à son actif une dizaine de 45 tours et un album 33 tours. Malgré d'évidentes qualités et quelques succès (Elle m'attend, Où va-t-elle ?), il a renoncé à sa carrière artistique après cinq ans d'activité, faute d'avoir acquis une popularité à la mesure de son attente.

Jazz / Jazz Funk / Fusion

Reissue with the latest 24-bit remastering. Features original cover artwork. Comes with a descripton in Japanese. Fast and funky fusion from David Matthews – building off the sound of his later Kudu recordings with a sweet electric groove! The album's got a pretty full approach overall – with Matthews on electric piano, and directing a large group of players that includes Mike Maineri, Michael Brecker, Jon Faddis, Shunzo Ohno, and Ronnie Cuber – and a number of tracks feature a vocal chorus that includes Ullanda McCullough and Yvonne Lewis. The overall style is slick, but not in a bad way – and Matthews more than meets the Japanese fusion sound head to head for this non-US release from the time!

Reissue with the latest 24-bit remastering. Features original cover artwork. Comes with a descripton in Japanese. Ronnie Foster cut plenty of sweet fusion sides for Columbia Records at the start of the 80s – but this set's from the second half of the decade, and was initially an album that was only issued for the Japanese market! Foster arranged the whole record himself, and works with a nice lean lineup that includes Phil Upchurch on guitar, Harvey Mason and Ndugu on drums, and Paulinho Da Costa on additional percussion – all in a groove that's kind of a mid 80s update of Foster's earlier mode, still delivered with just the right sense of space and soul! Titles include "Ipanema Walk", "Festival Do Brasil", "Squirt", "Night Life", "Europe", and "The Racer".

Genre: Funk, Soul

In 1981, a lot of rock & rollers were claiming that the disco era was officially over. Disco, of course, never really died – a lot of the dance-pop, house music, Hi-NRG, and Latin freestyle that was recorded in the '80s and '90s was essentially disco – but as far as many of the radio stations and record company A&R men of 1981 were concerned, disco was dead. And that was bad news for Chic, a group closely identified with the disco era. Even though a lot of Chic's work had as much to do with funk and soul as it did with the Euro-disco sound, Chic was unable to live down its reputation as a disco group. But Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards gave it a try with 1981's Take It Off, an admirable, if uneven, project that finds the group downplaying the Euro-disco elements.

VA - Fading Yellow Vol.1-Vol.13 (2002-2011)
Psychedelic Rock, PopSike | MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 2,37 Gb
Label: Flower Machine Records | Release Year: 2002-2011

Never realised the breadth of the "Pop-Sike" genre until I heard Fading Yellow, a really fine compilation that hangs together beautifully as an album. That most of the tracks are obscure isn't surprising: everything is a little odd, a little ramshackle, with a strong melancholic undertow and not a little creepiness. Of course, this music is also specific to a particular time in Western pop music history so there's a strong nostalgic element, but the knowledge this music could never be exactly replicated is what also makes it so fascinating. Recommended, in a warm and loving 60s way.
