    6 & 12 String Guitar

    The release of this truly iconic album virtually launched Leo Kottke out beyond the St. Paul-Minneapolis confines where he had been ensconced as a local phenom. By jumping on board John Fahey's burgeoning Takoma label, Kottke's guitar wizardry (especially finger-picking a 12-string, usually reserved as rhythm accompaniment) gave other guitarists far and wide, second thoughts. Throw in some sassy slide work on both 6 & 12 String Guitar and you'll know why this particular record is commonly referred to as an Intro to Guitar 101. With twelve original compositions plus a few by J.S. Bach, Kottke's blues, folk, country and classical channelings dictate both his playful and reflective approach on each. Highlights include blazing picking techniques on Busted Bicycle and Vaseline Machine Gun with some muscular bottleneck slide work on The Sailor's Grave On The Prairie.

    Testify

    Remastered by Nick Davis


    Perhaps his most low-key and reflective work, as demonstrated with This Love This Heart and You Touch My Heart, Testify moves confidently into other territory with the escalating beats and rhythms of Driving Me Crazy and the gospel-tinged title track. The album's lead single, an interpretation of Leo Sayer's I Can't Stop Loving You demonstrated Collins' continuing ability to create hits, as it topped Billboard's Adult Contemporary chart.

    Sabougla Voices

    In today's frenetically paced world, uncovering a lost treasure is often met with great enthusiasm, excitement, and anticipation. Lost footage of Gene Kelly dancing. A Vincent van Gogh no one knew existed. An Arthur Crudup album lost in a vault for 40 years. Jimi Hendrix material coming to light after 40 years. Well, now we can also celebrate the "discovery" of a blues master stepping into the sunlight, and delivering the best gospel album since Elvis gave us "How Great Thou Art" in February, 1967. The paradox is that Leo Welch has been there all along, living in Sabougla, Mississippi, first playing blues, and then moving to gospel. Born in 1932, Welch grew up playing blues. As his style of blues became less popular, he began to play gospel because churches offered more opportunities to play. Consequently, he was overlooked because blues aficionados frequented juke joints. Most blues lovers would never think to find blues, or blues related music in a church.


    After an off-the-cuff call by Welch to Big Legal Mess Records, things continued to fall into place, and he was able to record his debut album, Sabougla Voices. It is really difficult to accurately describe this stunning album, and faithfully convey the vibe, the atmosphere, and way it moves a listener. Welch has poured a lifetime of learning, living, loving, playing, and praying into this work, and it shows!


    This album is stripped down, bare bones joyful gospel being played and sung from the heart. This is not your daddy's gospel though. Sabougla Voices is a shot of love to your heart, a cool cleansing breeze blowing through your soul, and an orgasm for your ears. The album opens with "Praise His Name," which is beautifully sparse, raw, and has a great bouncing beat. "You Can't Hurry God" is almost a gospel honky-tonk that has a juke joint vibe. "Take Care Of Me Lord" has a very early Magic Slim and The Teardrops sound to it. "Mother Loves Her Children" is really basic, slow, artfully delicate blues. "Somebody Touched Me" has a mid 1960s Rolling Stones blues flavor, and nice backing vocals. "A Long Journey" is delightfully slow, and begs to be pulled over you like a comforting blanket of blues. "His Holy Name" is gospel as a shuffle, and definitely has the church rocking! The album closes with "The Lord Will Make A Way," an acoustic performance that is slow and stark, but very moving.


    If this is Welch's debut alum, we can't wait for the follow-up! This album is definitely a must-have.

    Lanzafame

    Sir Thomas Sanders and his one-man act Tap Tap deliver a gloriously messy, ebullient, shiny pop album here filled with joyfully noisy guitars, crashy drums and lovely harmonies. The songs feel like they are held together just by the skin of their teeth as if they could fall apart or maybe just explode around every corner. Lanzafame is just about everything it needs to be; quick, enjoyable and a fine twist on the continuing late-'70s/early-'80s revival.

    Just Like Love

    Eric Bibb's latest Opus 3 recording Just Like Love is a unique collection of old songs and new compositions, recorded with the minimum amount of backing, in an intimate and relaxed style.


    Quite a few of these songs were recorded just weeks, days and even hours after landing in my notebook. I intentionally chose to share them at this early stage, prior to performance, because of my fondness for the unique energy of newborn songs. In order to capture these spontaneous moments of creativity, a collaboration was set up between ARM/Manhaton and my old friend Jan-Eric at Ops 3 Records, whose natural recording techniques are perfectly suited to these intimate, moments. - Eric Bibb

    Autumn Shuffle

    Starting at an early age Peder Af Ugglas taught himself boogie-woogie on piano later turning to classical music. However the call of rock and jazz became predominant with the music of Louis Armstrong, Jan Johansson and the Rolling Stones among the main sources of his inspiration. Later the guitar became his main instrument. Nevertheless, all types of keyboards and piano continues to play a significant role in his musical productions.


    He has worked together with many prominent Swedish artists, including Louise Hoffsten, Anders Widmark, Stefan Sundström and Sara Isaksson, producing several of Stefan's albums and Sara's latest. He also played in the Bob Manning band for a number of years. For about the last ten years he has composed the music for exhibitions of the work of artists Christer Themptander and Hasse Lindroth, as well as composing music for both cinema and television films. His approach to his own music is characterized and very much influenced by impressions and experiences, atmosphere and feelings.


    Playing all variety of acoustic and electric guitars and keyboards and accompanied by a varying group of instruments, from harmonica to Hammond organ to trombone, Ugglas presents a program of folksy, bluesy originals. Opus 3 captures close-up, his touch on the strings and the resonance of the instruments. - Stereophile

    Brahms - Piano Concerto 1 (45 RPM)

    This 1962 recording of Brahms's massive First Concerto was an instant classic when originally released. Pianist Clifford Curzon, Conductor George Szell and the London Symphony Orchestra unite for a Truly Stunning Performance! Clifford Curzon gets to the heart of the music, capturing the high drama of the symphonic opening movement, and his rapt concentration makes a profound effect in the Adagio, famous for his controversially slow tempo. Conductor George Szell is his equal here, conducting with passion and intensity. The way he screws up the tension in the orchestra's opening statement and then, through judicious rubato and a warming of the string tone, makes the second subject come alive is a mini-lesson in great conducting.

    Blues, Ballads And Work Songs

    Opus 3 Records is both privileged and delighted to release acoustic blues singer/songwriter Eric Bibb's new album Blues, Ballads & Work Songs, a further enhancement to Opus 3's association with Eric which goes back to 1977 when he was in effect 'discovered' with the success of his debut album Rainbow People. Other albums over the years have included 1994's Spirit & The Blues, 1997's Good Stuff and 2000's Just Like Love.


    The basic concept of Blues, Ballads & Work Songs was to cover the complete range of traditional folk/blues songs which were an inherent part of Eric's childhood up to the present day with his own inimitable compositions.


    Blues, Ballads & Work Songs is an album I have been working on for most of my life. Its release coincides with my 60th birthday and it celebrates the music that first inspired me to become a guitar-playing singer. Being as passionate about writing songs as I am about singing and playing traditional material, I couldn't resist including the self-penned tunes at the end of the record. These newer songs, are the 'children' of the older ones.


    As always, Opus 3 Records has strived to achieve the authentic sound which Eric has always loved and it is worth noting that the recordings for Blues, Ballads & Work Songs were made using the very same Valve Stereo-Microphone as on his first album!

    Holst The Planets

    Zubin Mehta conducts the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra for this audiophile recording of Holst's The Planets.


    The scoring of the Planets is rich and extravagant (quadruple wood-wind, enormous brass and a percussion section requiring three players, not to mention such exotic additions as bass flute, bass tuba and organ) and yet the sound is always clear and transparent. There are two other ingredients to add to this formula - melodic invention and a great sense of rhythm. Holst had these in plenty. If his methods seemed novel during his life-time they have become commonplace since - but never dull.


    The suite opens with Mars, the Bringer of War with its relentless, hammering five four rhythm. The movement is in simple ternary form. Brass dominates in the tremendous build-up and release of forces....


    Venus, the Bringer of Peace is also the goddess of love and Holst allows his music more sensuality than elsewhere. Gone are the harsh pounding rhythm and snarling brass. They are replaced by serenity and coolness...


    Mercury, the Winged Messenger is a symphonic scherzo of unparalleled lightness and volatility. The effect is obtained by mixing tonalities and time signatures. The distant keys of B flat and E are juxtaposed and there is a constant mixture of triple and duple time...


    Jupiter, the Bringer of Jollity comes as a contrast to the vapid Mercury, with its boisterous dances and broad hymn tune...The king of gods would surely have been pleased with such a regal anthem...


    Saturn, the Bringer of Old Age is Holst at his deepest and most intensely personal. It is an excursion into cold and dreary open spaces so often explored right up to the end of his life. The syncopated oscillations between two dissonant chords seem to be borrowed from Schoenberg while the slow melody of the double basses surely epitomizes senescence itself...


    Uranus, the Magician: Trumpets and trombones blare out a portentous invocation, echoed by tubas and timpani. Bassoons are next on the scene to establish the piece's galumphing 6/4 gate...


    Neptune, the Mystic: This is real music of the stars - free from all earthly sentiment. It is a vision of remote beauty and ideal perfection. Silvery sounds unfold yet without the remotest suggestion of a theme to disturb the spiritual concentration. There is constant shifting of harmony and changing tone colour. The icy tinkling of celesta and glockenspiel and the wordless, disembodied female chorus which floats over and around the closing pages were later (some 35 years later) to find their way into Vaughan Williams' Sinfonia Antarctica. There is, and can be, no end to this music - it fades away but cannot die: it is as infinite as space itself and as intangible as the most distant parts of the subconscious. - from liner notes

    Ben Webster And Associates

    Tenor Titans Ben Webster, Coleman Hawkins, and Budd Johnson and joined by trumpeter Roy Eldridge, bassist Ray Brown and more! Ben Webster is at the Top of his Game! A Phenomenal Jazz Session!!!


    Mastered by Bernie Grundman from the Original Analog Master Tapes! Only 2500 Numbered Limited Edition Copies Worldwide!


    While it is difficult to single out just one of the musicians, it is easy to distinguish them: Ben (called The Brute) plays with a raspy, vibrating sound; Coleman (known as The Bear) is a master of flowing swing; and Budd has an earthy, resonant bluesy sound. The five numbers reflect the jam-like spontaneity of the 1959 session; an Ellington classic by the three in a masterful, inspirational new interpretation; three pieces which are intrinsically and hoc improvisations; and a classical ballad in which Ben Webster breathes warmth and sentiment into his instrument.
