Shawn Phillips - Transcedence

Shawn Phillips - Transcedence - 1978

Shawn Phillips may not be a name that rings bells for the casual music fan, but it is a name that can be tied to some of the greatest moments in music history. Whether it's Donovan’s “Sunshine Superman” or The Beatles’ “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band,” singer/songwriter Shawn Phillips is someone that was there. The Fab Four had Phillips lend his vocals to “Lovely Rita,” and Donovan and Phillips used to sit in a room and write songs together. But this is only the beginning of the Shawn Phillips story.

This is a man that studied sitar with Ravi Shankar and gave George Harrison some basic lessons before the famed Beatle later found Shankar himself. He is also, through his work with Donovan, the first artist to introduce the sitar to popular music. Phillips also gave guitar lessons to Joni Mitchell while she was working as a waitress in Saskatchewan. Mitchell was interested in learning Phillips’ 12-string technique. Some of the musicians that can be found on Phillips’ albums are iconic names like Rick Wakeman, Michael Kamen, Steve Winwood, and Eric Clapton. Other world famous artists that Phillips has had relationships with are Delbert McClinton, The Moody Blues, Bill Cosby, Bob Ezrin, Jerry Moss, ZZ Top, Cass Elliot, Paul Buckmaster, Elton John and Bernie Taupin, Steve Morse, John Denver, Paul Simon, and more.

Ian McLagan And The Bump Band - United States

Ian McLagan And The Bump Band - United States - 2014

Dia 17/06 foi lançado o primeiro álbum de estúdio em cinco anos, via Yep Roc Records, de Ian McLagan. "United States" é também o primeiro a sair do forno depois de sua entrada no "Rock and Roll Hall of Fame" como membro dos Faces. É um belo disco, onde Ian deixa parte de suas tristezas tão presentes no disco de 2009, "Never Say Never", feito logo após a perda da esposa e e traz canções mais alegres, mais próximas dos seus primeiros discos solos. São 10 faixas - todas originais - e trazem McLagan (vocais, guitarra e teclados) junto a seus colaboradores da Bump Band ’Scrappy’ Jud Newcomb, Jon Notarthomas e Conrad Choucroun. Apareceu pra dar uma força Leigh Mahoney (David Byrne) no violino.

O álbum foi gravado e produzido no estúdio de sua propriedade no Texas e a mixagem ficou a cargo de ningúem menos que Glyn Johns (The Who e The Faces, entre muitos e muitos) e a masterização correu a cargo de Bob Ludwig, que traz em seu currículo pérolas dos Stones e do Zeppelin.

Pat McManus - Live And In Time (Re-Re-POST)

Pat McManus - Live And In Time - 2009

Patrick Frances McManus was one of 6 children born into an incredibly talented musical family in Derrylin, Co.Fermangh, N.Ireland. Pat’s father, John, and his mother Valerie were highly accomplished Traditional Irish music players, so it wasn’t long before Pat and his two brothers, John and Tommy, were picking up all the instruments lying around the house and learning to play. By the age of 7, Pat had already performed on live T.V. and by 14 he was All-Ireland Fiddle Champion. Aged 20, Pat somehow stumbled across a band called Horslips. As Horslips were a Celtic rock band, the 3 brothers could relate to their music and quickly became big fans and later attended so many gigs that they formed a friendship with the guys in the band. The brothers soon swapped their Fiddles, Uilleann Pipes and Bodhrans for electric instruments and formed their first band called - Pulse, with Pat on Guitar, John on Bass & Vocals and Tommy (who was only 12 at the time) on drums. During an interview with Radio Luxembourg , Dj – Tony Prince, who remarked how young they all were, jokingly called them Mamas Boys - the boys changed their name. It was just meant to be an ‘of the cuff’ remark but the name stuck and soon the 3 brothers were officially known as Mamas Boys........... READ MORE HERE

All the performances come from the personal archives of both Leslie West and Corky Laing and whilst some of the performances are not sonically perfect the quality of the performances are never in question and as Corky Laing says “Some of the performances are real interesting”. I couldn’t have said it better myself.
