  • Larry Jon Wilson – New Beginnings

    Sektion: Musik, Neue Releases

    Image: 1622322 Larry Jon Wilson kam zu spät zur Party. Als er in Nashville ankam, hatte der Country-Soul-Pionier Tony Joe White bereits sechs Alben veröffentlicht. Townes Van Zandt hatte sieben, Mickey Newbury acht gemacht. Kristofferson, der akzeptierte Hohepriester des Neuen Nashville, hatte fünf gemacht. Er begann erst im Alter von 30 Jahren mit dem Gitarrespielen, aber fünf Jahre später veröffentlichte er sein Debüt, 'New Beginnings' (1975) und folgte ihm nur ein Jahr später mit 'Let Me Sing My Song To You', beide auf Monument Records. Eine Offenbarung unter den Hipstern und Kritikern von Nashville, die dafür sorgte, dass Larry Jon sofort als Teil der Mitte der 70er Jahre beginnenden "Outlaw Country Movement" aufgenommen wurde.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------

    Larry Jon Wilson came to the party late. When he arrived in Nashville, country soul pioneer Tony Joe White had already made six albums. Townes Van Zandt had made seven, Mickey Newbury eight. Kristofferson, the accepted High Priest of the New Nashville, had made five. Larry Jon, by the time he arrived, had spent ten years in corporate America.

    He did not start playing guitar until the age of 30, but five years later he released his debut, New Beginnings (1975) and followed it just a year later with Let Me Sing My Song To You, both on Monument Records. A revelation among the hipsters and critics of Nashville, the LPs ensured Larry Jon was immediately embraced as part of the mid-70s “outlaw country movement” that eschewed slick production in favour of a raw, gritty approach. When a film crew came to document this burgeoning sound, they made straight for Larry Jon's door. The legendary Heartworn Highways (1981) featured his mesmerising performance of “Ohoopee River Bottomland”, a boogaloo funk monster.

    He was a singer and writer of intensely private, painfully moving tales of southern life. With his deep, papa-bear voice, funky southern groove, and richly evocative narratives of rural Georgia, Larry Jon was a unique stylist but his gutsy, greasy sound did not translate into sales. Too funky for the country crowd, too heartfelt for pop radio, he fell between the cracks. We hope the long-overdue reissue of his first two albums will go some way to rectifying this. Indeed, both New Beginnings and Let Me Sing My Song to You - so similar they play like two halves of a double album – showcase his unique mix of country, folk, soul and swampy blues.

    Driven by a crack rhythm section that included Elvis guitarist Reggie Young, New Beginnings is a rich, literate record. Anyone with even a passing interest in the union between soul and country music will be able to tell they’ve located solid gold as soon as Larry Jon’s deep baritone utters the first appreciative “mm-hmm” a few bars into the opening ‘Ohoopee River Bottomland’, a fat-bottomed swamp-funk account of hard times in the city and country alike. Funny, nostalgic, sad, wistful, righteously pissed-off: New Beginnings is country-influenced American songwriting at its finest, from the feverish country-got-soul groove pulsating behind the weary sigh of “Through The Eyes of Children” to the elemental lament “Things Ain’t What It Used to Be (and Probably Never Was)”, a country standard that somehow got away, Wilson’s compelling presence and rich voice keeping saccharine and self-pity at bay at all times.

    The audio for New Beginnings comes from the original analogue tape transfers and has been remastered for vinyl by Be With regular Simon Francis. We’ve taken the same care with the striking cover art and we were honoured when Larry’s close friend Jeb Loy Nichols kindly agreed to contribute wonderfully unique liner notes, presented beautifully on the printed inner sleeve opposite a gorgeous black and white shot of Larry, mid-performance.

    REMASTERED FROM ORIGINAL TAPE TRANSFERS, CAREFULLY REPRODUCED ORIGINAL ART, STRICTLY LIMITED TO 500 COPIES WORLDWIDE – NO REPRESS

    “Larry Jon Wilson? He can break your heart with a voice like a cannonball.” - Kris Kristofferson.

  • The Beat – Live At The Roundhouse (Colored 2LP+DVD)

    Sektion: Musik, Neue Releases

    Image: 1619445 One of the biggest bands of the 2-Tone movement, The Beat are known the world over for a string of hit singles including Mirror in the Bathroom, Too Nice To Talk To, Can’t Get Used To Losing You and Hands off She’s Mine. The Beat fronted by Ranking Roger released their spectacular fourth album Bounce (the first in over 30 years!) in 2016. Bounce shows off every gleaming aspect of one of the most musically diverse bands to come out of the multiracial, multicultural explosion that remade British pop from 1979 onwards.
    Joining Ranking Roger in the current line-up is his son Ranking Junior AKA Matthew Murphy, a powerhouse MC, who brings to the band an update on the toasting that made Ranking Roger such a pivotal part of the original Beat. The Beat teamed up with The Selecter last year to give fans a rare treat, hitting the road together for a number of coheadline shows. Originally a six-date tour, due to phenomenal demand they played nearly 40 dates together in 2017 selling over 40,000 tickets in the UK and Europe.
    Life-long friends, The Selecter and The Beat feat. Ranking Roger are two of the main bands to come out of 2 Tone – a crucial musical and cultural movement which is still as relevant today as it was over 30 years ago. The hugely successful pairing is now continuing into 2018 and heading worldwide.

    The tours in 2017 included a sold-out show at London’s iconic Roundhouse and The Beat are releasing a Live Album from that show on CD/DVD, Heavyweight Double Vinyl and Limited White Splatter Double Vinyl both with Bonus DVD.
