    My Generation (50th Anniversary / Super Deluxe)


    Limited Edition 50th Anniversary 3LP-Set


    Includes The Original Mono Album


    Features Mono Bonus Tracks & 11 Of Pete Townshend's Demos From Before The Album's Original Release


    In the half century since its release The Who's debut album MY GENERATION has lost none of it's raw visceral power and still stands as the ultimate musical declaration of teenage rebellion. The title track alone has been covered innumerable times by the likes of Oasis, Green Day, Patti Smith, Billy Joel, Alice Cooper and Iron Maiden amongst many more.


    Back in 1965 the band were considered to be so dangerous that the tailors tasked with turning a Union Jack into a pop art mod jacket for the cover feared that they would be jailed for desecration of the nation's flag.


    The Who's surly demeanor that day in 1965 at London's Surrey Docks and the brazen appropriation of the symbol of state is the best advert possible for MY GENERATION It's an album that sounds like it looks: terse, confrontational and full of youthful angst and energy.


    Brunswick Records first issued MY GENERATION in the UK in December 1965, and later in the US, under the title THE WHO SINGS MY GENERATION, in April 1966. It was produced by Shel Talmy who shot to fame with his work with The Kinks, a group that the teenage Pete Townshend admired greatly.


    During a break in touring in 2015 Pete Townshend discovered tapes in his audio archive featuring previously unheard demos for the album which also included three totally unreleased songs that the other members of The Who hadn't ever even heard, 'The Girls I Could Have Had', 'As Children We Grew'and 'My Own Love'.

    Dream A Little Dream

    At the time of Dream a Little Dream's release, the von Trapp family was more newsworthy than it had been in a while: The Sound of Music Live!, a television adaptation of Rodgers & Hammerstein's musical, was a ratings success when it aired in December 2013. More poignantly, Maria von Trapp, the last surviving member of the original Trapp Family Singers, passed in February 2014 at age 99.


    On this collaboration with Pink Martini, Sofie, Melanie, Amanda, and August von Trapp -- the great-grandchildren of the von Trapps immortalized in The Sound of Music -- continue the family tradition with beautifully harmonized versions of songs ranging from Johannes Brahms' In Stiller Nacht to the national anthem of Rwanda, Rwanda Nziza. Working with Pink Martini was an inspired choice, as they almost always bring out the best in their collaborators -- along with the unexpected, like Kuroneko No Tango, a version of the Italian song Black Cat Tango inspired by Japanese singer Osamu Minagawa's 1969 rendition. The group sounds just as natural backing the von Trapps as they do working with their usual vocalists, and Dream a Little Dream bears the same mix of kitsch and sublime beauty as one of Pink Martini's own albums. Die Dorfmusik sounds like it could have strolled in from The Lawrence Welk Show, while the version of ABBA's Fernando sounds like it came from a Swedish Carnaval parade thanks to the involvement of the Lions of Batucada.


    The inevitable Sound of Music inclusions are handled in a similarly playful fashion, with Wayne Newton taking the lead on The Lonely Goatherd and Charmian Carr (who portrayed Liesl in the film of the musical) joining the von Trapps for a sweet version of Edelweiss that recalls Pink Martini's work with Phyllis Diller on their previous album, Get Happy. The von Trapps balance Dream a Little Dream's quaint and quirky moments with more contemporary-sounding tracks, three of which were penned by August. Storm and Friend recall '60s folk in their acoustic earnestness, and the Chieftains give the closing track, Thunder, a pretty, if somewhat out of place, Celtic twist. As is often the case with Pink Martini's albums, the most intimate moments here are among the best.


    A softer-than-soft rendition of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang's Hushabye Mountain captures the exquisite poignancy of vintage children's music, while the delicate Le Premier Bonheur du Jour and a starlit version of the album's title track cast a similar spell. Ultimately, Dream a Little Dream is an entertaining blend of both parties' strengths, showcasing Pink Martini's globetrotting pop and introducing the next generation of von Trapp music.

    Old Ramon

    Old Ramon, the sixth Red House Painters album, recorded in the
    fall of 1997 through the spring of 1998, was intended for release
    that summer. But the mega-major label merger catastrophe that
    left hundreds of bands homeless spared few. Red House Painters
    looked for a brief moment like survivors, but subsequent delays
    eventually turned into permanent layoff. Old Ramon sat in limbo
    and grew into legend as another great, lost album only the
    privileged few would ever properly hear. They've unintentionally
    put the wait back into the term "long-awaited."


    Singer Mark Kozelek kept busy with a series of other projects. He
    served as producer for Take Me Home: A Tribute to John Denver.
    As archivist for the 4AD Red House Painters Retrospective album,
    assembling rarities and live tracks. As solo artist with several
    tracks on the Shanti Project album, and two albums Rock 'n' Roll
    Singer and What's Next to the Moon, a collection of AC/DC songs
    reinterpreted. As live performer, touring the United States, United
    Kingdom, Spain, Sweden and his first ever shows in South Korea.
    As film scorer for the independent film Last Ball. And, finally, as
    actor in Cameron Crowe's critically acclaimed Almost Famous.


    But while playing a musician in a movie-Kozelek appears as the
    bassist of Stillwater in Almost Famous-was an exciting diversion,
    it also pointed out the absurdity and irony of the situation. He'd
    been writing and performing his own music since the 1980s, with
    Red House Painters since the early 1990s. He was a musician, not
    just someone who might play one on TV.


    With Old Ramon sitting on the shelf, it was like reading a book
    with a chapter missing. Kozelek had written most of the album
    throughout 1996 and 1997. There were "Between Days" and
    "Wop-a-din-din," written during the months he stayed in Oaxaca,
    Mexico about his time there and his cat waiting at home in San
    Francisco; "Cruiser" written on an airplane ride from Los Angeles
    to San Francisco about a friend he'd met during the John Cale
    tour; and "Golden," a song in tribute to John Denver, written and
    recorded in a single day during December of 1997, just a few
    months after Denver's tragic death. "Michigan" and "River" had
    been road-tested on the band's previous tour.


    The album, in fact, had come together with a good feeling, reuniting
    the band with their old friend and engineer Billy Anderson,
    who'd worked on their earlier records Down Colorful Hill and the
    two self-titled releases (Rollercoaster and Bridge by their covers).
    Sessions in San Francisco, Mendocino, California and Austin,
    Texas resulted in several hours' worth of music being recorded.
    The band had spread out and worked up various arrangements for
    a majority of the tunes. Sadly, a twenty-minute version of "Michigan"
    fell to the cutting room floor.


    But the ten songs packed onto Old Ramon (the title comes from a
    Spanish children's book that caught Kozelek's fancy) well
    represent the band that will take to the road for the first time in
    several years with extensive touring throughout the United States
    and Europe. Once freed from their major label commitments,
    reputable independent labels bid for the band's services. This,
    however, is the album exactly as it was intended-untouched-three
    years to the month of its completion. Good news:
    The wait is officially over.

    Solitude On Guitar (Speakers Corner) (Out Of Stock)

    The acoustic guitar shares the same destiny as so many music companies: almost all of them dabble with the six strings at some point, many attempt to play entertaining harmonic roulette with it, but only a few really make the grade. Baden Powell belongs to the small circle of guitarists whose early virtuosity is perfectly combined with a keen sense of harmony. Powell demonstrates this special talent in his slow numbers in particular, in which broken chords are developed like a bud opening out to a blossom. He guides the listener cautiously through his melodies in that he makes a tiny pause before a harmonic change. Full timbre and lightness are not a question of what is written down on the manuscript but result from a powerful performance, as is shown by the totally un-Brazilian, gentle major-minor key version of the children's song Kommt Ein Vogel Geflogen.



    Naturally, the wonderfully crafted, animated and bouncy bossas flow along easily. As befits the album's title, the guitar is in the limelight here, driven on, held back, and then propelled forward by the rhythm group. The ballad Se Todos Fossem Iguais A Voce is strongly recommended to whet your appetite for the bossa Na Gafieira Do Vidigal.



    Musicians:



    • Baden Powell (arranger, guitar, vocal)

    • Joaquim Paes Henriques (drums)

    • Eberhard Weber (bass)




    Recording: December 1971 by Torsten Wintermeir at Studio Walldorf, Germany

    Production: Joachim Ernst Berendt





    About Speakers Corner



    At the beginning of the 90s, in the early days of audiophile vinyl re-releases, the situation was fairly straightforward. Companies such as DCC, Mobile Fidelity, Classic Records and, of course, Speakers Corner all maintained a mutual, unwritten ethical code: we would only use analogue tapes to manufacture records.



    During the course of the present vinyl hype, many others have jumped on the bandwagon in the hope of securing a corner of the market. Very often they are not so ethical and use every imaginable source to master from: CDs, LPs, digital files, MP3s - or employed existant tools from the 80s and 90s for manufacturing.



    A digital delay is gladly used when cutting a lacquer disc because tape machines with an analogue delay have become quite rare and are therefore expensive. When cutting the lacquer, the audio signal is delayed by one LP revolution against the signal, which controls the cutter head, and for this a digital delay is very often employed. Of course, the resultant sound signal is completely digital and thus only as good as this delay.



    We should like to emphasise that Speakers Corner Records on principle only uses the original master tape as the basis for the entirely analogue cutting of lacquer discs. In addition, the pressing tool is newly manufactured as a matter of principle. We have one digital recording in our catalogue (Alan Parsons / Eye In The Sky"), but even in this particular case we used the analogue tapes for cutting.



    We only employ existing tools for manufacturing if an improved result is not forthcoming, e.g. the title Elvis Is Back, which was mastered by Steve Hoffman and Kevin Gray, or several titles from our Philips Classics series, which in any case Willem Makkee cut from the original masters at the Emil Berliner Studios in the 90s. It goes without saying that we only used the mother and that new tools were made for our production.



    To put it in a nutshell: we can ensure you that our releases are free from any kind of digital effects - excluding the exception above - and that the lacquer discs are newly cut.



    This title is not eligible for discount.
