The Ambulators With Pete French - On Top

The Ambulators With Pete French - On Top - 2007

review from cdbaby
The term SUPER-GROUP is thrown around far too often but the truth of the matter is that these guys really do all come from SUPER groups. Vocalist Pete French has done time with Carmine Appice and Tim Bogert in Cactus as well as making albums with Atomic Rooster and his own Leaf Hound. Guitarist Ray Majors is a former Yardbird and member of Mott The Hoople. Don Craine and Keith Grant are founding members of The Downliners Sect. Roger Cotton was a member of Peter Green's Splinter Group and Mick Avory is the drummer for The Kinks.

Gary Wright - First Signs Of Life

Gary Wright - First Signs Of Life - 1995

Review from AMG

Some might recall musician Gary Wright from his several hit songs of the '70s and '80s, including the classic "Dream Weaver." His distinctive vocals and visionary use of keyboards to create a mood were definitive trademarks of his sound. For the '90s, Wright has embellished that sound with the addition of invigorating guitar with African and Brazilian influences. The musicianship here is impressive, supplied by Wright again on keyboards and vocals, and guest musicians Terry Bozzio on drums, Ricardo Silveria on guitar, and even George Harrison on backup vocals. The newly composed original material blends Brazilian percussion with African choral music to create an infectious worldbeat hybrid, and the musicians' performances radiate sincerity and joy.

David Lewis - Ghost Rhymes

David Lewis - Ghost Rhymes - 2007

Ghost Rhymes is the third release from David Lewis, who has been producing collections of melodic and gently reflective songs since the late 1980's. Lewis, who is based in West London, has been described as ‘a writer and singer worth getting to know’ (Sing Out!), his work as ‘smart song-craft’ (CD Now). Writing within a modern British folk tradition with strong roots in the 60s and 70s (Sandy Denny, Robin Williamson, Al Stewart, Donovan), Lewis’s songs may draw from past folk traditions, but they aim to present a contemporary respite from modern uncertainties. Co-produced by long-time collaborator John Wesley Harding, Ghost Rhymes features Harding and a host of other talented musicians.

Ghost Rhymes was recorded in Seattle, San Francisco and Harpenden, UK and it features 13 new songs (three co-written with Harding). “Water From the Well” and “Trying to Remember A Dream” feature a full folk-rock band sound, while songs such as “Waterwheel”, “Fever Dream”, “Something Real” and the title track explore a range of acoustic finger-picking styles and tunings.

V.A - The Yardbirds Family Tree - Birds Of A Feather

V.A -  The Yardbirds Family Tree - Birds Of A Feather - 2006

By Dave Thompson from Goldmine Magazine
There’s the Yardbirds’ family tree, and then there’s the Yardbirds’ family tree, and in terms of having something fresh to listen to, one is a lot more enjoyable than the other. John Mayall, Cream, the Jeff Beck Group, Led Zeppelin – whatever is left to be said about the monsters that once took flight from the Yardbirds’ nest? But step away from the antics of a few smart guitar slingers, and there’s an underground swirling around the band’s other members that rarely sees the daylight it deserves.

In fairness, this is less a Family Tree collection, than an anthology of Jim McCarty’s more recent, extra-curricular activities. The British Invasion All-Stars, the Yardbirds Experience and, of course, the Jim McCarty Band are the dominant names here, together with a clutch of McCarty-less highlights from the Ambulators’ tribute to ‘birds mentor Sonny Boy Williamson. Likewise, the 19 tracks turn up a mere handful of established Yardbirds classics (“Shapes Of Things,” of course, kicks it all off), preferring to mine the entire British beat repertoire of bluesy classics, R&B stompers and proto-rock howlers.

The line-up across the four acts is phenomenal – Don Craine, Phil May, Dick Taylor, Eddie Phillips, Mick Green, Matthew Fisher, Ray Majors, Mick Avory, Dave Walker … and that’s just the names that your pet goldfish would recognize. Noel Redding leads one aggregation across a dynamic “Jimi Hendrix Trilogy”; Pete French (ex-Cactus) fronts another through an incendiary “Wang Dang Doodle” and a Cream-stopping “Sitting On Top Of The World.” (Both tracks, incidentally, are previously unreleased.)

There’s no weak moments, no awkward segues, no annoying lapses. From start to finish, Birds of a Feather blazes as brightly as the blues should burn, and rocks with all the passion that the Yardbirds themselves made their own. Others among the band’s hatchlings may grab all the headlines, and make all the noise. But when it comes to actually playing the music, and making it matter, this is Year Zero.

01. Shapes of Things
02. Mona
03. Gimme Some Lovin'
04. Shakin' All Over
05. Green Onions    
06. I'm a Man        
07. Wang Dang Doodle
08. Sitting on Top of the World
09. Outside Woman Blues
10. How Many More Times

11. Framed
12. I Go Crazy
13. How Blue
14. Don't Start Me Talkin'
15. Nine Below Zero
16. Bring It on Home
17. Keep It to Yourself
18. Help Me
19. Jimi Hendrix Trilogy

Tracks 1-6 by The British Invasion All-Stars featuring Yardbirds founding member Jim McCarty along with Dick Taylor and Phil May of The Pretty Things, Matthew Fisher (Procol Harum) Don Craine and Keith Grant (Downliners Sect) Eddie Phillips (Creation) Ray Phillips (Nashville Teens) and Mick Green (The Pirates)

Tracks 6 and 7 are brand new recordings featuring Pete French (Cactus/Atomic Rooster) on vocals. Never before released!

Tracks 9-13 are by The Jim McCarty Band once again with Mr McCarty on drums, co-lead guitar by current Yardbirds vocalist John Idan and former Yardbirds axe-man Ray Majors along with Rod 'The Mod' Demick on bass. Vocals handled by Idan and Majors.

Tracks 14-18 are from the album 'Mostly Sonny-A Tribute to Sonny Boy Williamson' by The Ambulators with Dave (Savoy Brown) Walker on vocals. Don Craine - guitar, Nigel Watson- guitar, Ray Majors-lead guitar, John O'Leary-harmonica, Roger Cotton-keyboards, and Mick Avory (The Kinks) on drums.

Track 19 is a long out of print song by The Yardbirds Experience. 'The Yardbirds Experience' is the same basic line-up as The British Invasion All-Stars with the additional of Noel Redding on bass.

British Invasion All-Stars - British Invasion All-Stars

British Invasion All-Stars - British Invasion All-Stars - 2002

by Alex Henderson from AMG
The British Invasion All-Stars are a 21st century band with a '60s sound, which isn't surprising because all of its members are veteran rockers who belonged to various '60s bands (some more prominent than others). In rock circles, the term British Invasion is used to describe the wave of British rock bands that made its presence felt in the '60s. Rock was born in the United States, but when the Beatles and many other British acts hit big in the '60s, it was clear that England had become a major player in the rock & roll field.

Formed in 2001, the British Invasion All-Stars boasts former-Yardbird Jim McCarty on drums and lead vocals, ex-Procol Harum member Matthew Fisher on electric Hammond organ, and Eddie Phillips (formerly of the Creation) on lead guitar. The three other members are Ray Phillips, of the Nashville Teens fame, on lead vocals, and two ex-members of the Downliners Sect: rhythm guitarist Don Craine and bassist Keith Grand (who contributes background vocals and shares the lead vocals with Phillips and McCarty). The British Invasion All-Stars' self-titled debut album, which was released on the independent Mooreland Street label in 2002, shows no awareness of the alternative rock sounds of the early 2000s; the band is totally unaffected by any of the punk, new wave, post-punk, pop-metal, or alternative rock that came after the '60s. From covers of well-known songs by the Yardbirds ("Shapes of Things") and the Who ("Shakin' All Over"), to new material, everything on the British Invasion All-Stars' first album is unapologetically '60s-minded. The CD boasts several guest musicians who have strong '60s credentials, including bassist Noel Redding (who was one-third of the Jimi Hendrix Experience) and two ex-members of the Pretty Things: Dick Taylor and Phil May.

This self-titled debut album by the British Invasion All-Stars was released in 2002, but if you didn't know better, you might assume that it was recorded in the mid- to late '60s. That's because their music is a celebration of '60s British Invasion rock, and all of them know a lot about that subject - they were members of bands like the Yardbirds, Procol Harum, and the Nashville Teens. All of the material sounds dated, and that is true of new songs (including the moody "Heavy Weather") as well as covers of '60s hits like the Yardbirds' "Shapes of Things," the Who's "Shakin' All Over," and Booker T. & the M.G.'s "Green Onions" (which ends up with a British blues-rock outlook rather than a Stax/Volt outlook). Even the production sounds dated; if producer/arranger Mike Ober wanted to make this CD as '60s-sounding as possible, he accomplished his goal. But dated isn't necessarily a bad thing if you are a die-hard fan of a particular era; in fact, it can actually be a plus. And for fans of '60s British Invasion rock, this release is dated in a good sense - dated as in being an enjoyable celebration of an era that gave fans great bands like the Beatles, the Yardbirds, the Zombies, the Who, and the Kinks. The British Invasion All-Stars' performances fall short of mind-blowing; none of their covers are superior to the original versions. But the album is generally decent, and it is worth hearing if you are a serious admirer of '60s rock.

Simon Phillips and Jeff Babko - Vantage Point

Simon Phillips and Jeff Babko - Vantage Point - 2000

By Hilarie Grey from jazztime 
Offering authentic acoustic jazz from a unique Vantage Point are drummer Simon Phillips and pianist Jeff Babko. Phillips, most widely known as the foundation of pop-rock mega-band Toto, has worked out acclaimed jazz-rock chops over the years. Teaming with the dazzlingly talented Babko, bassist Dave Carpenter and the blistering dual-horn attack of trumpeter Walt Fowler and saxophonist Brandon Fields, Phillips serves up a sound that reveres the masters of '50s and '60s jazz, with the crisp bite of modern production. From the sweet, blithely swinging horn-based feel of "New Blooded," to the wicked film noir sounds of "Miles Away," spotlighting Carpenter's mysterious bass and squinched mute horns, the quintet's sound is vintage-bracing and potent-but with a spacious instrument placement that deposits listeners directly in the club, ringside. The solos stretch, romp and wail, with Fowler's scorching trumpet powering the soulful "Vantage Point," and Phillips offering a huge drum intro to the hard bop of "Bewilderment," for example. A live hyper-fast romp entitled "Spirits of Trane" showcases the band's mind-boggling synchronicity and features some truly inspired sax spirals and squeals that might suggest that actual channeling of these spirits has occurred on this truly transporting effort.
