Carolanne Pegg's self titled album is being reissued in June (Esoteric). Some people might be pleased.  8)

You're welcome. It's a rarity even on CD, now, so this is indeed good.

I'm afraid I had to check good old Wikipedia to ensure CP is still with us. I remember a very interesting radio interview a few years back.

There's a version of Fair Fortune's Star up on YouTube that I think is off this album.  It's brilliant.  Proper folk rock with a cracking solo by (I think) Albert Lee.  Never heard the rest of the record so I'm quite excited for this release!

Also noteworthy:

Not worth starting a new thread, but I just discovered that the first Hudson Ford album Nickelodeon, features one Gerry Conway on drums. The 3 HF albums are just out in a box, and long overdue.

Did someone mention them here yesterday?  Because I found myself looking for Pick Up The Pieces on YouTube.  A great single.  I loved it as a kid.

Don't know, but they were a good band. I still have a copy of 'Floating in the Wind', another good single.

Yes, it's a bit like the phrase 'you guys', used to address a mixed company. I'm given to using this myself. Less of a mouthful than the humorous 'guys and guyesses', which is nice, but  potentially even less PC.

Marian Segal and Jade are getting the 3CD anthology treatment from Cherry Tree, in late August.  Details from Spin CDs (I know the link looks wrong, but it works):

https://www.spincds.com/coming-soon/freeway-jam-radio-broadcast-cd-53572

Press release:

-----

In the pantheon of rare Folk Rock albums from the genre’s golden era of the early Seventies, FLY ON STRANGEWINGS by Jade is a bona fide classic.

Largely ignored on its release on DJM in1970, the album is now widely acclaimed, which has led collectors and connoisseurs to consider Jade’s main singer and songwriter, Marian Segal, as a much-overlooked talent.

FLY ON STRANGEWINGS is now treated to a deluxe 3-CD edition which finally tells the full story of Marian Segal’s musical career. Compiled and annotated with Marian’s involvement, this new package offers a second disc of early recordings of Marian with fellow Jade member Dave Waite, while Disc Three brings the story more up-to-date with solo and Marian Segal Band recordings.

Disc One re-presents the classic Fly On Strangewings album with seven contemporaneous bonus tracks, two of which are previously unissued.
Before becoming Jade, Dave Waite and Marian (or Marianne) Segal were a duo, playing the university circuit and in London clubs at the height of the Swinging London era. Their music was a fusion of British and American folk, but already contained many original elements,including superlative vocals, in the vein of Sandy Denny and The Strawbs. This period is remembered on Disc Two, recordings which have been out of print for a decade. Four track sare previously unissued.

 Disc Three includes two historic mid-70s recordings with Jeff Wayne (of War of The Worlds fame).

The albums include a host of session talent from the 1970s including Dave Mattacks, Herbie Flowers, Clem Cattini, Pete Sears, John Wetton, Chris Spedding and Terry Cox as well as sweeping string arrangements by Phil Dennys (Rodriguez).

Not sure if streaming availability counts as a reissue, but most of Bob Seger's catalog is now available for streaming and on Itunes, which was never the case before. Sadly he still deems a few of them such as Noah and Back In '72 as unworthy of reissue of any kind, despite knowing that fans would eagerly snatch them up.

£8 from the label

They also have a live album from Rockpile (Dave Edmunds, Nick Lowe et al) just out.

Fairport : Unhalfbricking. (Universal LP, 2017).



A bonzer new vinyl edition.  Claims to be 'limited',  but isn't numbered. Includes a free download for you to throw away.

The pressing on this is far superior to Universal's Back top Black imprint LPs, which are often shite.

Get it while it's available.

Obviously so that they 1) only have to make and sell one product, and 2) can charge one big price to anyone wanting either the CDs or the vinyl.

At my most cynical, I'd say the trend for these bonzer giant boxes is a ploy to mine the rich seam of middle aged and retired fans, who are comfortably off and have the dosh to spend. I'm slightly allergic to boxed sets, so it doesn't affect me much - -I always go into 'do I really need it?' mode when I see these things advertised.

The notorious Spin CDs announces the 2-CD issue of "The Who Live at the Fillmore East 1968."  Amazon UK says April 20.  Nothing on the Who's official site yet.

This appears to be an official release on UMC (Universal Music Classics), and purports to be remastered by Bob Pridden.

I have had several bootlegs of one or other of the Fillmore concerts over the years, and they are seriously flawed recordings of spectacular performances.  One version of "Relax" speeds up to about 1000X normal (like pushing the FF button on a cassette recorder) during the instrumental interlude, I presume because the bootlegger wanted to "fit" the whole song on one side of an LP and didn't care how it sounded.

If this is an official release, and has been truly speed corrected and cleaned up, it is a must-have for Who fans.

I finally purchased and listened to the Who at the Fillmore East 1968 double CD.  I am pleased to report that my previous impression was incorrect - both "Relax" and "A Quick One" are presented in complete form (at least I can't detect any edits).  Furthermore, the sound quality is as good as anything of that vintage could possibly be.  If Keith were here, he would no doubt complain about his drums not being properly miked, but that was true of every live Who recording I've heard before the Tommy era.

"My Generation" is interesting, but incredibly sloppy.  Keith seems to be struggling with changing tempos and, frankly, finding something interesting to play while Pete experiments on top of everything.  This is a proto-jam, something they did much better from Tommy-onward.  I'm not sure I'll listen to MG again, but Disc 1 is worth the price of admission.

I got an alert for this and pre-ordered.

I think the price will come down between now and the release date but 7a are a very small label specialising in releases by the individual members of the Monkees, beautifully packaged, for which there is a limited market. They do it for the love of it and do not, I think, make much of a profit so I am prepared to pay a little more for their releases.

It seems increasingly that the cost of small run CDs is going up. One veteran independent artist that I recently went to see sells his CDs online for £20 each and they were the same price at his concert because that is what he needs to charge to break even on them. To compensate, he also sells his albums on a USB stick at a considerably lower price.

I have, thanks Paul.  I don't know how bothered I am about a live album, to be honest.  I nearly blew my top though when I saw that the recent reissues of Nez's first 6 albums all have tempting bonus tracks.  The downside is that thus far they are download-only.  I bought one track, a 1971 remake of Circle Sky with the Second National Band, while I wait and see what gives in terms of a possible physical release for these reissues.

The way I see it is, there is unlikely to ever be much in the way of new music from Nez, so I'll take what I can get. These shows were supposed to be great too. I wish they would come here.

There has or is about to be a vinyl release for the Nez reissues but presumably without the bonus tracks.

My mistake - Bob Stanley compiled it. As far as I know they’re limited editions and available in store only, although I guess that if you have your Sainsbury’s shop delivered, you might be able to get hold of it that way.  ???

Apparently there's a 'super store' in Swansea Bay...there isn't one in Llanelli where I'm living...so I may have to trot along next week.  Thanks!

Oh, and the COB tune is Eleven Willows, not Brother John, which I presume was mistakenly copied above from earlier in the track list (by Bread, Love and Dreams).


Title: Re: Reissues of interest.
Post by: dog-nap (Ian) on November 28, 2018, 09:50:52 PM
In case anyone is hunting for this, the title of the comp. is ‘Meet on the Ledge’ (catchy title, that).  The Sainsbury’s connection is not obvious until you get the shrink wrap off.

I like the look of their earlier comp. ‘Coming into Los Angeles’, but that does seem to be vinyl only.  Unless anyone knows better?

I think I am probably in for this. I do have all the RCA material on various twofers that will find their way to a charity shop. I only have most of the Pacific Arts stuff as downloads or on compilations apart from Tropical Campfires which I have in physical form
