The debut album by The Misers 'Amplified Life Stories' from 2009 on Sonny Jim Records. While this group was well known in the UK, it seems that they never have gotten much airplay or exposure in the States or, for that matter, anywhere else in the world.
In 2013, Jean-Paul "Bluey" Maunick stepped out with his first solo album, Leap of Faith a stylistically varied set on which he performed the lead vocals but he quickly went to work on fresh material with the group he has led for over four decades. Leap of Faith evidently didn't drain his creativity, as Amplified Soul is another double-length Incognito album, 70 minutes in duration. Though it doesn't feature Maysa Leak or any collaborator on the level of Transatlantic R.P.M. contributors Chaka Khan, Leon Ware, and Al McKay, it certainly isn't short on powerful and uplifting lead vocal turns.
This winner of the 1996 Real Blues Best Instructional Video features Gary Smith, the Godfather of S.F. Bay Area Blues Harp. A comprehensive run down of the real stuff that you need to know to get the BIG TONE and STYLE of the Master Blasters, as taught by one of the guys who really knows!
Amplified Gesture is a 50 minute film, to be included in the deluxe edition alongside a 5.1 stereo mix of the album. Essentially, it presents the album's participants, plus contributions from saxophonist John Butcher and AMM percussionist Eddie Prévost (who have worked with Sylvian on an installation soundtrack called When We Return You Won't Recognise Us), talking about their art under a series of chapter headers.
