JOHN LEE HOOKER, ALBERT KING, JOHNNY “GUITAR” WATSON and more on 180 Gram Vinyl Pressed at R.T.I.

Selected from the crown jewels of the rich King-Federal-DeLuxe discography, King Strings features rocking, socking guitar instrumentals from the Cincinnati-based family of labels cut between 1949 and 1962, programmed for power! Fashioned as a vintage King LP from the era and containing a killer line-up of the biggest talents the stable of labels offered, this is the historic various artists collection that should have been issued circa 1962. King was central to the underlying creative flow in R&B during the era, and the recordings here show the depth of style and synergy that the label routinely captured on vinyl. From the proto-funk groove of Hooker’s “Stomp Boogie” (under the pseudonym Texas Slim) to two cuts of Baker magic captured in Paris over a decade later, and including key cuts from Freddy King, Albert King, Johnny “Guitar” Watson and many others in between, you’ll individually hear a variety of instruments, tones and techniques, but together the clear, common artistry of the players’ sovereign ability, sequenced like a long, climactic solo—this is the sound of some of the most heralded talent of the guitar generation! Includes a rich, detailed insert with rare photos and extensive liner notes by Colin Escott. Join six-string soul royalty for a showcase from the company that called itself The King of Them All!

The Standells

LP | $18.98

Add to Cart

This item is available for pre-order and will ship on, or before, the street date of January 27, 2015.

The Standells’ amazing string of punkish, tough-guy anthems, like “Dirty Water” and “Sometimes Good Guys Don’t Wear White”, define the legacy of mid-sixties garage rock like nothing else. With the success of these records came ’66 tours with the Rolling Stones and Beach Boys. From all reports, the Standells proved a superb live act. But for decades, their on-stage reputation rested on an earlier, Pre-Tower label live album documenting the Standells in an unrecognizably clean-cut night club incarnation.

But there’s a happy ending to this story. It turns out the Standells were in fact recorded at their peak, LIVE ON TOUR-1966! At last, here’s the whole knock-out live act from the year the Standells stormed the charts. All the ’66 hits are here including “Sometimes Good Guys Don’t Wear White”, “Why Pick On Me?” and of course, “Dirty Water” (in tremendous versions, all of them). Fan faves are also on board, like the fuzzed-out “Mr. Nobody” and stomping “Why Did You Hurt Me”. Highlights also include high energy covers of “Midnight Hour” and “Please, Please, Please”, to name just a few of these crowd-pleasers, showcasing the Standells’ R&B roots updated with ’66 sheen. Hearing the Standells’ road-tested, extended take on “Gloria” is not to be missed, either!

Rescued from a professionally recorded concert at the University of Michigan, the Standells are captured in astonishingly clean sound that rivals their legendary studio recordings. This may just be the finest recorded example of vintage live ’66 American garage rock. It’s all here, the Standells in brilliant sound and in a superb package including rare photos and liner notes.

The Shadows of Knight

LP | $18.98

LP 5473

Add to Cart

This item is available for pre-order and will ship on, or before, the street date of January 27, 2015.

Besides releasing two classic longplayers and many more singles (including the smash, “Gloria”), touring/behaving badly all across America and appearing on TV shows like ‘Upbeat’ and ‘Where The Action Is’, the Shadows of Knight also ruled at suburban Chicago’s hands-down hippest teen club, The Cellar. Over the decades, their Cellar performances have become the stuff of legend.

Miraculously, two reels of tape of the Shadows of Knight live on stage at the Cellar (in 1966!) were eventually uncovered by Sundazed. As early as their ‘Gloria’ album debut in spring ’66, the Shadows of Knight had separated themselves from the garage band pack with a heavily Chicago Blues-based, wildly rocking repertoire. Their trademark sound is on full display in this attitude-drenched, anarchic live recording from late in that exalted year.

For this expanded edition, the original sets and correct song sequence have been faithfully restored. And to top that, additional and until now completely unheard bonus material is rescued from those old reels. Specifically, added to an already scorching set are previously-unheard takes of “Peepin’ and Hidin’” (sung by blues legend Joe Kelley), “Willie Jean” (with a vocal from drummer Tom Schiffour) and “Any Way That You Want Me”. Equally important, the packaging now equals the musical contents thanks to an all-new, eye grabbing sleeve highlighted by John Hora’s amazing original photography from ’66.

Unlike their comparatively harnessed studio recordings, the Shadows of Knight are presented here raw ‘n’ alive, sloppy bordering on brilliant and with all the subtlety of a bulldozer. Would you want ‘em any other way?
