The Original Steve Gibbons Band - Live In Concert

The Original Steve Gibbons Band - Live In Concert - 2010

from official site

The Steve Gibbons Band were causing a stir across the UK in the 70's when Pete Townshend discovered and mentored them leading to a recording deal with Polydor and touring the World with The Who for 3 years.

They had a UK Top 10 hit with "Tulane" and recorded 4 albums for Polydor and even Roger Daltrey covered "One of the Boys" for his solo album.

Punk & New Wave changed the record industries way of thinking so the original band split, leading to drummer, Bob Lamb becoming a high profile recording producer, notably for UB40, Duran Duran, Ruby Turner, Stephen Tin Tin Duffy & Ocean Colour Scene.

Bob Wilson went on to be MD of the Ruby Turner Band as well as playing guitar for many top Birmingham bands over the past 20 years.

Dave Carroll is a highly respected classical musician who works for the Royal Shakespeare Company in Stratford upon Avon. He still plays a mean lead guitar!

Trevor Burton, original member of The Move, has fronted his own Trevor Burton Band since the split and is still busy to this day.

Steve Gibbons continues to play his music live across the UK & Europe after over 4 decades in the business covering more miles than NASA's Space Shuttle Program!

Live In Concert this is an exclusive previously unreleased live recording of their acclaimed reunion tour recorded in front of a 1000+ capacity crowd at the Old Robin Hood Club, Merry Hill in Birmingham England in March 98. 78 minutes of 14 great rockin' tracks, ball breaking rhythm section, exciting, soaring dual lead guitars and Steve's classic story telling vocals.

Steve Winwood - Winwood And Friends

Steve Winwood - Winwood And Friends - 1972

from ecrater.com
As a solo artist, Steve Winwood is primarily associated with the highly polished blue-eyed soul-pop that made him a star in the '80s. Yet his turn as a slick, upscale mainstay of adult contemporary radio was simply the latest phase of a long and varied career, one that's seen the former teenage RB shouter move through jazz, psychedelia, blues-rock, and progressive rock. Possessed of a powerful, utterly distinctive voice, Winwood was also an excellent keyboardist who remained an in-demand session musician for most of his career, even while busy with high-profile projects. That background wasn't necessarily apparent on his solo records, which established a viable commercial formula that was tremendously effective as long as it was executed with commitment.

Available on record in various forms, this is an essential insight into SW's early years. Most commonly available on "Steve Winwood and Friends" on the American Springboard label (catalogue # SPB-4040) or the French BYG label, long since out of print, but can be found in decent second-hand record shops and sometimes through the small ads in the Record Collector magazine. This is nice raw stuff with "Mojo" featuring SW and Spencer up at the mic for an all-star jam session including Sonny Boy Williamson, Long John Baldry, Eric Clapton, and Art Themen among others.

Rich Hopkins & Barry 'The Fish' Melton - Duel in the Desert - 2007

Cork - Speed Of Thought


Cork - Speed Of Thought - 1999

from AMG
Eric Schenkman left the Spin Doctors following the dismal performance of their second album Turn It Upside Down in 1994. He drifted for a few years, playing the occasional session, before returning in the pan-generation supergroup Cork in 1995. Essentially, Cork is simply Schenkman and former Mountain drummer Corky Laing, but for much of their debut album Speed of Thought, they're joined by bassist Noel Redding of the Jimi Hendrix Experience; whenever he doesn't appear, Schenkman handles the four strings. Cork apply jam band mentality to '70s hard rock. They turn up the volume, strengthen the attack, and make it blusey, while still concentrating on loose-limbed jams. The results are mixed, to say the least.

Se alguém tiver alguma informação, fique a vontade para escrever, pois parece-me que até o site oficial dele (quer era mantido por Sir McCartney) evaporou-se.

Steve Ellis - A Sort of Innocence

Steve Ellis - A Sort of Innocence - 2004

Steve Ellis will forever carry the millstone that is 'Everlasting Love'. It seems to crop up with worrying frequency on most of his albums, and on this new solo offering it is featured twice. Ageing rockers and pop pickers will recall that it was Ellis who fronted teen sensations Love Affair and scored a No.1 hit with that song in 1968.

Fortunately the two versions are different to the original, the live version recorded when Ellis was a guest at a Paul Weller gig in 2001 and featuring the Modfather on guitar.

Following a low-key career revival and spurred on by recent CD and DVD releases, this  album is very good. Ellis not only has Weller guesting on a couple of studio tracks, including Weller's own composition, the opening track "Brand New Start", but he managed to pull in Roger Daltrey for a spot of harp blowing in "Nu Clear Blues" and "Yellow Rose Of Texas".

That's where big-name support ends, but with an excellent backup band and featuring two songs by newcomer Sam Smith, Ellis doesn't really need the bunk-up. Ellis' own songs are a mixture of nicely-styled pop-rock with blues and soul overtones.

Whilst an album like this will always remain niche with limited mass appeal, it is good to hear Ellis again. In general the songwriting and playing is top-draw and will appeal to ageing rockers and those for whom the letters AOR provoke unashamed anticipation.

This CD has been withdrawn from the market in 2008 and is replaced by "Best Of Days".

02. Step Inside
03. Everlasting Love
