va- Hot Rodders Choice - New

This is not the comp by the same name put out on DelFi.

Popular "Hot Rod Music" saw its heyday during the late 1950's and early-mid 1960's. The most well known songs were penned and performed mainly by a small group of young Southern California musicians and part-time hot rodders in '63 - '64. But most of us real rockers know that as soon as the first automobile wheels began rolling off the assembly lines of Detroit, real "hot rod" records began rolling onto jukeboxes and DJ's turntables. "Hot Rod Boogies" waved the starting flag for many a car enthusiast's imagination and sparked the beginning of a musical genre all it's own. Authentic mid 1950's rockabilly music can trace much of it's early inspiration and fast rhythms to a teenager's love of driving fast cars and owning hopped-up rods.

Today's rockabilly musicians are working wonders with the sounds that popular culture has long since forgotten or cast onto the scrap heap. Using the 'spare parts' of vintage 50's sounds, classic instrumentation & some garage honed talent -and then inspired by the "kustom" kings of old, modern rockabilly acts have crafted some truly killer recordings, driving that original spirit blazing back onto the modern hepcat scene. Much like the original hot rodders who were often limited by materials, time and money, these 21st century rockers have fashioned streamlined, stripped down and scorching retro roots rock music with all the same fire, flash and fury as their original 1950's heroes.

Like the curves in a Von Dutch pinstripe that bend and blend into the perfect work of kustom art, so too does this record combine that original kustomizing spirit of the "old rat rodders" and the vintage car sounds that we love (Hillbilly, Rhythm N' Blues, Novelty & Rockabilly!), welding them into something cooler, faster and BETTER! And that's what we have here today, race fans: a real souped up gow job of a hot rod platter! Rhythm Bomb's own musical mechanics (and a few hand selected mercenaries) have chopped, channeled and 'hopped' up 22 instant car classics for your driving and listening pleasure! Remarkably, most are all NEW original tracks, with just a scant 5 retreads (covers) under the hood. What you have here in your greasy hands is the perfect soundtrack for an afternoon wrenching in the garage, an evening cruise or a late night drag on the outskirts of town.

That same rebellious fever and need for something "just a bit faster and a lot cooler" is what fuels these tracks here, so please... take it easy 'round them curves! -Del Villarreal DJ

va Coming Home Soundtrack Picks

When compiling music, it is common to stick to a certain `theme' for the compilation. This installment of Coming Home on the Stereo Deluxe label sees an accomplished collection of music that has been included in the French film genre, as compiled by Marc Collin (Nouvelle Vague).

Excellent female contributions are seen on such compositions as Vladimir Cosma's "Maldonne," which features sweet melodies filled with strings both bowed and strung, a blissful brass section fronted with jazzy female scat-like vocals which all take place underneath a certain `Brazilian lounge' air that is represented throughout the tune.

Seven songs into today's compilation we are happily reminded that the late Piero Umiliani has left the world a much better place with a playful bossa nova number titled, "Cinque Bambole." Forming a stunning melody out of the act of `counting to five' along with an extremely rockin' groove, this summertime beach party anthem is a dusty treasure waiting to be taken out of the record bin and played until winter skies bring our warm days to an end.

Nearing the later part of our voyage through French film music via Coming Home, we couldn't have possibly overlooked Ennio Morricone's "Le Due Stagioni Della Vita," for this sweet & symphonic arrangement foretells of bright spring days after the long cold winter as embracive vocals meld into the finely-tuned strings and piano that make up the base of this beautiful piece.

Slightly prior to the end credits rolling on today's feature, we catch a small breeze, much like that off the wings of a butterfly on Philippe Sarde's "La Chanson D' Helene (Vocal Version)," which not only offers a breath of fresh air, but radiates the sensation of black & white `pictures' being played on the screen of an old-time theater.

Track listing
1. Gato Barbieri - Last Tango In Paris
2. Lalo Shifrin - On The Way To San Mateo" (LP Version)
3. David Shire - The Taking Of Pelham 1, 2, 3

Maraca 5-0

Unbeknownst to me, Trustar (see links) posted this 2 yrs ago. Shows ya how fr behind I am.

Great stuff tho - that needs to be heard.

Boulder Colorado's Maraca Five-0 have assembled a fine release. The music is fresh and well crafted, with surf roots and lots of unusual influences. Steve Gray - guitar and Matt Stemwedel - guitar counter each other very well, supported admirably by Theron Melchior - bass and Mike Behrenhausen - drums. Unusual structures and melodies, dripping drama and art, but never losing sight of the surf. If you could take only the gloom and drama out of industrial and overlay surf with it, you might approach what's going on here. I think this one will stand the test of time.

Bezalel & The Sabras - Jerusalem of Gold (1967)

Jewish garage band featuring melodic guitar folk instros and reverb rockers, some fuzz.
The first Meshugga Beach Party
3 Israeli, 1 American, rock'n'roll band. All the tunes have a Israeli, middle eastern feel to them, kind of like if the Ventures were from Tel-Aviv. The Sabras were formed in N.Y, some time in the late 60's, and performed in the Catskills, and various Israeli night clubs in and around New York city.

Triumvirat Sparticus Deluxe

As a teenager in the 1970's, this was absolutely one of my favorite LP records (remember those?). I practically wore out the groove in the vinyl playing it so often. I've been waiting for the CD release of Spartacus ever since. Now that it's here, I have finally gotten another long-awaited fix of Spartacus. To my pleasant surprise, the audio quality of the CD remastering is quite good. Kudo's to EMI for doing it right.

The album concept is excellent. The lyrics are appropriate for the theme. (A gladiator/slave revolt is a gory matter, so this ain't no namby-pamby New Age disc.) And the musicianship is fabulous. On the LP, Juergen Fritz's keyboard work was always spectacular, and the incredible groove of Helmut Koellen's bass line on "March To The Eternal City" was instantly addictive to anyone who'd heard it. (This was THE bass demonstration song back in the '70's.) But on the CD, Hans Bathelt's drumming is what really stands out to me now. It's far more intricate and exiciting than that of most other rock and roll drummers, then or now.

Of course, Triumvirat still bears an inescapable resemblance to Emerson, Lake & Palmer ... but that's not a bad thing at all. Anyone who considers themselves to be a fan of progressive music, and actually listens to this album, should admit to one fact: These cats were awesome players on their respective instruments. Check out the extended soloing in the live bonus tracks, if you need further convincing. The musicianship Triumvirat's members display on Spartacus is on a par with almost anything ELP ever recorded: Tight, fiery, inventive, expressive and eminently listenable... everything a prog-fan should want.

So, if you've never heard this album, or, if you have and dismissed it, PLEASE, give it a whirl/re-whirl, in both cases, with an open mind.

If you do so, IMHO, I think you will find a work that not only stands on its own, but one that is whole-heartedly, start-to-finish, just downright, doggone enjoyable.

2. School of Instant Pain: Proclamation/The Gladiator's Song/Roman Enter - Triumvirat, Bathelt, Hans

Aerosmith Honkin on Bobo

First impression, strange name, the album is as advertised, Tyler puts his harp to good use in most songs. Although it contains 11 covers and only one original it sounds more like Aerosmith than Just Push Play did. Billed as an album where 'Aerosmith does the blues' do not expect a blues record. It is more closely comparible to the bands work in the 70s when you could still hear there obvious blues influences. Many of the tracks covered here are obscure as well, so the material sounds fresh and new.

The songs range from rockers like the first single Baby Please Don't Go and Shame Shame Shame to slower blues tunes such as Back Back Train sung by Joe Perry no less. In fact Perry lends lead vocals to two tracks on the album with the voice of the talented Tracy Bonham backing him up. This album is a welcome surprise from start to finish, fans of old Aerosmith will not be disappointed and fans of new Aerosmith will be introduced to a whole new world, with no boring power ballads to break the mood.

Honkin on Bobo is a Blooze-Rock record that Rocks with a capital R and would not have been out of place in the early 70's. This is a stunning return to rock and roll form for a band that has made way too many trips to the power-ballad ATM in recent years.

1. Road Runner 2. Shame, Shame, Shame 3. Eyesight To The Blind 4. Baby, Please Don't Go 5. Never Loved A Girl 6. Back Back Train 7. You Gotta Move 8. The Grind 9. I'm Ready 10. Temperature 11. Stop Messin' Around 12. Jesus Is On The Main Line

Stomu Yamashta's Go Live

2008 reissue of this album from the master percussionist who studied Jazz drumming at Berklee School of Jazz. In the 1970's he recorded a string of innovative albums for Island records which utilized the talents of such leading musicians as Hugh Hopper, Maurice Pert, Steve Winwood, Michael Shrieve and Klaus Schulze, fusing his percussion talents with Jazz, Electronic and Classical music to create an ambient form of music all of his own. His music has been used by the Royal Ballet. The album Go, released in April 1976, was a fine achievement and Yamashta assembled a band featuring collaborators Steve Winwood, Michael Shrieve, Klaus Schulze and Al Di Meola to deliver a series of stunning concerts. The Parisian concert was captured by Island Records and was released as Go! Live From Paris in 1977. Esoteric.

Sigue Sigue Sputnik 21st Century Boys: Singles

I was a fan of the Sputniks in the 80's when their music was more about glamour and fun. This is a superb collection and includes some rare b-sides ("Frankenstein Cha Cha" being one such track) that any true fan will know are very hard to find. It also has all the obvious hits like Love Missile, Sex bomb boogie etc but the best track on the collection as a whole is lifted from their second album and is called Rio Rocks - the track is fun and flouncy and contains the requisite balance between Martin's camp voice and the space guitars. A real must for any fan !

This album displays the band's versatility with traditional surf, horror blues, punk rawk, all acoustic country, spy, carnival waltz music, and their own brand of psycho surf.
