    The Hot Spot

    An amalgamation of swampy blues, jazz and rock - all mixed and recorded in a sparse, bloomy and eerie sort of way. This recording is just so damn fine, so airy and warm. And the musician's aboard on this Dennis Hopper film are a who's who, including Miles Davis, John Lee Hooker, Taj Mahal, Roy Rodgers, Earl Palmer and Tim Drummond. This has long been a highly sought after and collectible record among audiophiles. A true demonstration disc.

    Hot Thoughts

    'Hot Thoughts', Spoon's 9th album, is the bravest, most sonically inventive work of their career, though keep in mind, Britt Daniel's already overseen a number of other reincarnations. With all due respect to earlier efforts that have made the quintet both critically acclaimed and a commercial contender, preconceptions about this band are about to be obliterated. That's not to say 'Hot Thoughts' doesn't have a requisite supply of infectious earworms but there's a lyrical bent that's as carnal as it's crafty, and a newfound sense of sonic exploration that results in the genre-smasher Spoon have flirted with in the past but not fully consummated.


    Produced by Dave Fridmann (Tame Impala, The Flaming Lips, Weezer, MGMT) and back with Matador (third time's the charm) helps position Spoon to mount the highest highs of their already spectacular career.


    We are overjoyed to be back in the Spoon business and in time for Daniel's spot in the pantheon of rock's genius songwriters was well established a ways back - with the crackling, incandescent, multi-dimensional backdrop conjured on 'Hot Thoughts', the lines between accessible and experimental become non-factors for once and all. It's pop as high art, delivered with total confidence and focus.

    Hot August Night

    In the summer of 1971, Diamond played seven sold-out nights at the famed Greek Theatre in Los Angeles to a rapturous reception. The following August, he returned for ten more sold-out shows, an event forever captured on the multi-platinum Hot August Night, a double-record set that demonstrated once and for all Diamond's growing status as a superstar concert sensation. The original Hot August Night recording from The Greek Theatre concerts was one of Neil Diamond's most successful albums worldwide, living at the #1 spot on the charts for 29 weeks, is one of his more celebrated and acknowledged albums of his career and arguably one of the greatest live albums ever recorded.

    3rd Album

    Shocking Blue was a Dutch rockband from The Hague that was at their peak in the sixties and seventies and gained major cross-Atlantic success. The band was founded in 1967 and after recruiting vocalist Mariska Veres they soon became huge. With their single 'Venus' they became the first Dutch band ever to reach the first spot on the American Billboard Hot 100. The band had a series of subsequent hits but decided to call it a day in 1975. Their influence reached well beyond their generation: even bands like Nirvana and The Prodigy used Shocking Blue's 'Love Buzz'.


    '3rd Album' is strangely enough not their third full-length album but their fourth and was originally released in 1971. This reissue comes with six bonus tracks consisting of singles and b-sides and a gatefold sleeve.

    Miss E...So Addictive (Pre-Order)

    After a long winter of discontent, So Addictive finds Missy Elliott hoping to initiate hip-hop's summer of love. Miss E's third album is dosed with feel-good flavor and has more guests than the VIP section of the hippest hip-hop hot spot. Buddies Method Man and Redman bark across the bridge of Dog in Heat's canine funk. Jay-Z and Ludacris feature on two different versions of One Minute Man's scathing soul. Synths tweak and creak in rhythm as Missy unleashes a dreamy diss of those hopeless suitors who unload their cargo before they've sparked her ignition. Take Away features Pony man Ginuwine on a hypnotic slow-burner heavily reminiscent of Art of Noise's Moments in Love.

    When left to her own devices, as she is on Lick Shots (which jangles like Django Reinhardt on downers), Missy comes on like Schooly D, a fearless, female gangsta licking shots against anyone who dares cross her. On Scream a.k.a. Itchin' she breaks into a soprano. A 4/4 stomp is stamped indelibly across the ecstasy-holler song 4 My People (featuring Eve). Overall, it feels as if producer Timbaland has muted his experimental leanings on this outing with his favorite muse in favor of submersible club tracks. Musically, the bhangra beat bop of Get Ur Freak On is the standout. The spiral timing of Whatcha Gon' Do, the fret-skipping Slap! Slap Slap! (featuring Da Brat), and the sunken, drunken funk of the not-so-subtle X-hex X-Tasy are tied at a close second. -Chris Campion

    Why Make Sense?

    Hot Chip's new album, Why Make Sense?, restates the band's intentions and redefines the very
    things that made them relevant in the first place. Its ten tracks shun modernist dancefloor tropes in
    order to flick through the dusty corners of the band's teenage record collections, back when they
    were experimenting with music on primitive computer programmes. This, their sixth album, comes on
    the back of the highly successful In Our Heads and a touring period that saw them headline venues
    such as the iconic Hollywood Bowl and close out major festivals the world over.


    Why Make Sense? represents the first time the Hot Chip live band has recorded together residentially.
    The result is a revelation. Alternately jarring and chaotic, pared back, thundering, then pulsating and
    gloriously mellifluous, the album confidently displays its influences: clattering analogue post-punk
    ('Why Make Sense?'), Philly disco ('Dark Night'), and outer-space acid dub ('Easy To Get'). The crisp,
    snapping '90s RnB of "Love Is The Future" calls in guest spots from De La Soul's Posdnuos and
    Scritti Politti's Green Gartside on vocals and arrangements respectively. The record even eschews
    Alexis' vocals in favour of a carefully chosen sample that adds huge clout to the emotionally charged
    core of the album, 'Need You Now.'

    In April 1985 Paul Hardcastle's seminal track '19' entered the UK top 40 singles chart at #4. A week later it went to #1 where it remained for 5 consecutive weeks. Not even Duran Duran, on the back of the blockbuster movie 'A View To A Kill', could shift it! '19' was subsequently released worldwide, achieving overall sales in excess of 6,000,000 copies and hitting the #1 spot in 13 different countries as well as # 1 on the US dance charts and # 15 on the main Billboard Hot 100.

    Toni Harper's two original albums Toni (1956) and Lady Lonely (1959).


    Toni Harper's childhood was made of the magic any aspiring adult artist would kill for: a platinum record, a performance at Carnegie Hall, evenings spent sharing a stage with such performers as Cab Calloway, and invitations to appear on television with Frank Sinatra, Perry Como, Milton Berle, and Ed Sullivan. And all of the magic unfolded before she'd turned 12 years old.

    The jazz vocalist, who now goes by the name Toni Dunlap, got her big break in 1945 when she went up against a couple hundred other kids at an audition held by choreographer Nick Castle. Harper, who had been a dance student of Maceo Anderson, passed muster as far as her dancing, but when she sang Waitin' for the Train to Come In, she had the audition sewn up on the spot. Castle cast her in his production of Christmas Follies, which was staged at Los Angeles' Wilshire Ebell Theatre. Harper drew enthusiastic reviews and went on to earn a platinum record when she was eight years old with Candy Store Blues.


    Harper paired with Herb Jeffries for You're Too Tall 'n' I'm Too Small, the number for which she later paired live with Calloway at Los Angeles' Million Dollar Theatre. Television beckoned the young singer and she was a guest on numerous programs, among them Sullivan's weekly variety show. When she wasn't appearing on television, she was singing at numerous New York hot spots that included the Apollo, the Strand, and the Paramount. At the age of 11, Harper topped it all off by singing at Carnegie Hall.


    Like many child stars, Harper's career slowed down as she began to mature. As a teenager, she was too old for the childhood image that had given her a great start, but too young to effectively take on a more adult image. She attended high school in Los Angeles, involving herself in such extracurricular activities as drama, choir, and the glee club. She continued to take professional singing jobs during the school's summer break. Having completed high school in the mid-'50s, and still hampered by her youth, she sang for the teenaged record-buying public. For a young woman of her age, One Hamburger to Go was more acceptable in the public eye than any of the more sophisticated songs that she would record in later years, such as Love for Sale.


    The vocalist got her chance to sing the more adult songs when she recorded for Verve. In addition to Love for Sale, Harper recorded such songs as I Could Write a Book and Bewitched, Bothered, and Bewildered. Backing Harper on her self-titled first recording for Verve were pianist Oscar Peterson, drummer Alvin Stoller, guitarist Herb Ellis, and bassist Ray Brown. The vocalist later signed with RCA Victor, recording for the label for about four years and ending in 1963. Harper quit the business in 1966 after devoting more than 20 years to her singing career.

    Before The Dead (Box Set) (Pre-Order)

    Release Date: May 11, 2018*

    Limited Edition Of 2500 Sets


    Five 180-Gram LPs Containing Over 3.5 Hours Of Studio & Live Performances Culled From Previously Uncirculated Masters And Newly Discovered Recordings


    Audio Restoration And Mastering By Fred Kevorkian


    Lacquers Cut By Ron Mcmaster At Capitol Studios And Pressed To Vinyl By Quality Record Pressings.


    Produced By Grateful Dead Publicist And Biographer Dennis Mcnally And Brian Miksis.


    Includes A 32-Page Book With Rare Photos, Memorabilia And In-depth Liner Note Essays By Mcnally, Miksis, Acclaimed Bluegrass Scholar Neil V. Rosenberg, Sara Ruppenthal Katz, And Stu Goldstein.


    Round Records will release its most ambitious project to date with the long-awaited Jerry Garcia boxed set Before The Dead. The project features a meticulously researched and curated compilation of recordings the iconic Grateful Dead founder made prior to forming the legendary band. Before The Dead includes never before heard performances, recordings that have never been commercially released and a small selection that have. From intimate live recordings to live studio recordings to field recordings, Before The Dead serves as a historical document in the spirit of renowned releases by Smithsonian Folkways and influential field recordings by Alan Lomax. The music on Before The Dead was selected and co-produced by longtime Grateful Dead publicist/author Dennis McNally and documentarian Brian Miksis. The audio was restored and mastered by Fred Kevorkian.


    The first release from Before The Dead features the Black Mountain Boys (Garcia, Robert Hunter, David Nelson and Eric Thompson) in a rare 1964 live recording of "Rosa Lee McFall". Written by Charlie Monroe, the song would remain with Garcia throughout his career, reinterpreted later on with The Grateful Dead, Jerry Garcia Acoustic Band and Garcia/Grisman. This is the first time this track has ever been released.


    The 5-LP boxed set is pressed to 180-gram vinyl in a limited edition of 2,500 pieces and includes a special in-depth 32-page book featuring essays by McNally and Miksis, rare photos and memorabilia along with detailed listening notes and commentary on each track by Dr. Neil V. Rosenberg. Aside from being a renowned musicologist, Rosenberg was part of the Redwood Canyon Ramblers, an influential Bay Area bluegrass ensemble that would inspire a younger generation of players, including Garcia. Each section features a "Tales of the Tape" essay that includes details on how, when and where the music was recorded, how it was found and, in most instances, anecdotes about the particular date, including early interactions with many area musicians before they went on to greater things. Sara Ruppenthal Katz (formerly Sara Garcia, Jerry's first wife) contributes an enlightening essay around the 1963 recording of her duo performance with Garcia at the intimate Pala Alto, CA club Top Of The Tangent (aka The Tangent). Tangent co-founder Stu Goldstein also adds a piece discussing the club's origins and how it became a hot spot for the new folk scene that was developing in the Bay Area.


    Before The Dead sheds light on the earliest period in Jerry Garcia's odyssey going from the young, charismatic, developing multi-instrumentalist coming of age during the early 1960's folk-revival (often sarcastically referred to as The Great Folk Scare) to one of the most influential and groundbreaking artists of the rock 'n roll era. Like many during that time, Garcia's influences were coming from the deep-rooted folk tradition of artists such as Doc Watson, Earl Scruggs, The Carter Family, The New Lost City Ramblers, The Stanley Brothers, The Weavers, a young Joan Baez and the Harry Smith Folkways collections to name a few. These influences would resurface prominently in some of Garcia's most important work with the Dead on the 1970 albums Workingman's Dead and American Beauty - regularly cited as foundational in the creation of what is now referred to as Americana.


    From beginning to end, the listener will journey through the musical evolution of Jerry Garcia and how the impact of the folk forbearers gradually permeates his playing and technique. You can hear the earliest origins of Garcia's signature style budding as he had become a student of the music constantly absorbing and endlessly challenging himself. His instrument rarely left his side from dawn to dust. What shines brightly throughout the set is Garcia's outgoing personality and sense of humor, often described as "magnetic", a clear early indicator.


    Throughout this period from 1961 to 1964 were pivotal first-time meetings, (documented in the book) between Garcia and people who would become life-long collaborators and friends. From his revered writing partner and early bandmate Robert Hunter, to mandolin master David Grisman, to each member of the Grateful Dead, to the many artists who would go on to take their own place in music history, including acclaimed instrumentalist Sandy Rothman, David Nelson (co-founder of New Riders of the Purple Sage) and Clarence White, guitarist of the Byrds.


    Before The Dead showcases Garcia in various ensembles and configurations starting with the rarest piece in the entire collection, the earliest known recording of Garcia captured at his girlfriend's 16th birthday party in 1961 alongside future Grateful Dead lyricist Robert Hunter. Outside of a short clip used in the Grateful Dead documentary Long Strange Trip, this recording has never been released, circulated or heard. Other highlights include the Sleepy Hollow Hog Stompers' 1962 gig in San Carlos, CA, and the Hart Valley Drifters' 1962 recording at Stanford's KZSU Radio Studio A (Garcia's first-known studio recording, released in 2017 for the first time). Arguably Garcia's best and most beloved bluegrass band of that early period, The Black Mountain Boys are prominently featured via three separate occasions in 1963 and 1964, while a 1964 performance by Garcia's Asphalt Jungle Mountain Boys rounds out Before The Dead. See a full list of dates, performances and players below.


    Despite Jerry Garcia's deep love for folk and bluegrass traditions, his time fully immersed in it was coming to a close. Encounters with one of his heroes, Bill Monroe, whose band he almost auditioned for (and Rothman went on to join), might have sent him deeper in that direction, but it was not to be. (Note: Garcia even used to tape Monroe's shows, a possible foreshadowing of allowing fans to tape Grateful Dead shows later). By the end of 1964, The Beatles had become a household name, The Rolling Stones hit hard with their version of the blues and civil rights had become an important part of the social and political landscape. New influences and inspirations would impact Garcia's direction as he went on to form The Warlocks, who would go on to become The Grateful Dead. However, the foundation in tradition was solidified during those early years and would resurface regularly throughout the remainder of his life in a multitude of ways, including the Dead, The Jerry Garcia Acoustic Band, Old and In The Way, Garcia/Grisman and so much more.

    Diabolus In Musica

    If, as some suspect, Beelzebub has a soft spot for hard metal, he'll be delighted with Slayer's raucous return to form on the group's eighth album. With producer Rick Rubin (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Johnny Cash, Run-DMC) back at the helm, the thrash-metal pioneers have trimmed the excess flab that weighed them down in the early '90s. Back in evidence is the clinical speed, power, and aggression that once made them metal's most revered extremists. But while their trademark breakneck riffing remains, Slayer reaches beyond the old routines to pack a greater punch. Love to Hate harbors a fat hip-hop groove, In the Name of God toys malevolently with grunge-rock flavors, and Point concludes the 11-song set at just under 110 miles per hour. Diabolus in Musica is an emphatic resurrection--and then some.

    Dying To Say This To You

    The album was recorded at Studio 880 in Oakland, California, and produced by Jeff Saltzman (producer of The Killers' Hot Fuss). Music from the album was featured in the television show CSI: Miami, the MTV reality show The Hills and the TV spot for Geico in the United States. In support of the album The Sounds played over 200 shows in 2006, over half of which were in the United States. Upon its release, Dying to Say This to You was well received by music critics.

    Don't Smoke In Bed

    Multiple Styles Displayed On Holly Cole's 1993 Sophomore Album


    Mastered By Bernie Grundman From The Original Master Tapes


    Plating And 200-Gram Vinyl Pressing By Quality Record Pressings!


    Old-Style Gatefold Tip-On Jacket By Stoughton Printing


    Holly Cole brings her own dimension to the tradition of cabaret, a strong voice that's still capable of nuance, an ear for quirky repertoire, and a light touch that keeps some of these performances floating just at the edge of irony.


    On her second album, 1993's Don't Smoke in Bed, Cole explores varied musical styles, adding pop, blues, country and a French ballad to her standard, low-key jazz. It's a favorite of ours, which is why for this Analogue Productions reissue we've given it the reissue treatment it deserves. Bernie Grundman did the mastering, from the original analog tapes, at his Los Angeles studio, giving this release a spectacular foundation. Plating and pressing on 200-gram heavyweight vinyl was done by Gary Salstrom and crew at Quality Record Pressings, makers of the world's finest-sounding LPs. Lastly, we wrapped up the whole package in a premium gatefold tip-on jacket from Stoughton Printing. There's nothing but aces in this smokin' hot reissue and the quality shines through.


    Holly's delivery of more traditional fare shines on Cole Porter's witty Get Out of Town and Kurt Weill's torchy Je Ne T'aime Pas, while she brings clarity, power, and anthemic passion to the surprising treatment of Johnny Nash's I Can See Clearly Now. She's generally well supported in this intimate set by pianist Aaron Davis and bassist David Piltch, while there's sparing and effective use of strings. There are fine guest spots by tenor saxophonist Joe Henderson, on Everyday Will Be Like a Holiday, and David Lindley, whose steel guitar contributes to the strange country music of Don't Let the Teardrops Rust Your Shining Heart.

    The Cats (Pre-Order)

    In 1957, the greatest year for recorded music including modern jazz, Detroit was a hot spot, a centerpiece to many hometown heroes as well as short-term residents like John Coltrane and Miles Davis. It was here that Trane connected with pianist Tommy Flanagan, subsequently headed for the East Coast, and recorded this seminal hard bop album. In tow were fellow Detroiters -- drummer Louis Hayes, bassist Doug Watkins, and guitarist Kenny Burrell, with the fine trumpeter from modern big bands Idrees Sulieman as the sixth wheel.

    From the opening number, the classic Minor Mishap, you realize something special is happening. Flanagan is energized, playing bright and joyous melody lines, comping and soloing like the blossoming artist he was. Coltrane is effervescent and inspired, hot off the presses from the Miles Davis Quintet and searching for more expressionism. The other hard bop originals, Eclypso and Solacium, easily burn with a cool flame not readily associated with East Coast jazz. Flanagan himself is the catalyst more than the horns -- dig his soaring, animated solo on Eclypso as he quotes Jeepers Creepers. The near 12-minute blues Tommy's Tune is the perfect vehicle for Burrell, a prelude for his classics of the same period All Day Long and All Night Long. The lone trio session, on the standard How Long Has This Been Going On?, is regarded as quintessential Flanagan, and quite indicative of the Midwestern Motor City flavor Flanagan and his many peers brought into the mainstream jazz of the day and beyond. One yearns for alternate takes of this session.

    The Cats is a prelude to much more music from all of these masters that would come within a very short time period thereafter, and cannot come more highly recommended. It's a must-buy for the ages.

    180 Gram Audiophile Pressed At RTI


    From The Original Master Tapes


    Faithful Reproduction Of The Original Artwork


    Mono


    Rooted in the steamy backroads of Texas and deep-fried at a Memphis recording studio, Joseph's Stoned Age Man was served up like a sizzling hot rattlesnake appetizer slathered in fuzz-blooz grease in 1969. Legend has it that the titles of eight of the album's nine songs came before they were written on the spot, which speaks volumes for the talents of Joseph (aka, Joseph Longeria) - who A&R man Steve Tyrell signed to Scepter Records after witnessing the Lone Star State bluesman gig with B.B. King and T-Bone Burnett. Brandishing his guitar like a Cro-Magnon's club, Joseph mixes his fuzzy licks with meat-grinder vocals as he loudly ruminates of fattened snakes, fish heads, mountains, cavemen and gumbo in the maddest peyote hallucination Alley Oop never had. Long revered among collectors, this fine slab o' rock gets its first-ever reissue from the original masters, pressed at RTI onto 180 grams of cold hard vinyl that'll rip your turntable from its hinges.

    20 Jazz Funk Greats

    Pressed On Limited Edition Green Colored Vinyl


    Mute are delighted to announce a limited edition green LP reissue
    of 20 Jazz Funk Greats, the landmark 1979 album from industrial
    music pioneers Throbbing Gristle.


    The impetus for the record apparently came about from Genesis
    P-Orridge's mum's request that the band record something
    "nice". The tame cover photo shows the nattily dressed band -
    white disco jacket, comfy slacks, mini-skirt - stood amid flowers
    on a clifftop. The chosen scene of natural beauty was Beachy
    Head, a notorious suicide spot.


    20 Jazz Funk Greats' cheerful breaching of lounge jazz and
    disco contains some of the band's prettiest moments on songs
    like the breathy "Hot on the Heels of Love". Similarly "Tanith"
    and "Exotica" are gentle interludes in which TG's usual jagged
    punctuations are kept to a minimum. You could be fooled into
    thinking this was indeed easy-listening industrial.


    Pitchfork wrote that "20 Jazz Funk Greats finds the band waking
    up from D.O.A's dark night of the soul and feeling curiously
    frisky. Snacking on not only the titular funk and jazz, the band
    also takes touristic zig zags through exotica, rock and disco",
    ultimately describing it as a "kitsch detour toward mutant disco".
    Uncut Magazine wrote that "musically, it turned away from the
    precipice; not exactly jazz and funk, but sublimating TG's noise
    elements within electronic rhythms and proto-exotica." Dusted
    Magazine described the album as "a deliberate attempt to toy
    with the ideas behind marketing strategy and the purpose of
    musical genres."


    Pitchfork ranked 20 Jazz Funk Greats at number 91 in its list of
    the 100 greatest albums of the 1970s. UK magazine Fact named
    it the best album of the 1970s, writing that "This album is a
    rupture. It's an open crack into the unpronounceable dimensions
    into which tumble important streams of 20th century pop, art
    and underground culture, to seethe around each other, mingling,
    festering, sprouting new and unpredictable forms which in turn
    would ooze out to infest vast sections of what comes after."

    Nefertiti


    Final All-Acoustic Outing from Davis' Classic Second Quintet


    Mastered from the Original Master Tapes: Record's Tonal Shadings, Gradations, and Textures Come Alive


    Confident 1967 Effort Steeped in Inquisitive Interplay and Subconscious Impressionism


    Nefertiti will always be known as the final all-acoustic record made by Miles Davis' classic second quintet. A thematic bookend to the preceding Sorcerer, the 1967 set shares much in common with its equally nuanced predecessor yet deviates by way of its focus on rhythm and exploratory soundscapes. The low-key music blooms with colorful bouquets of shadings, gradations, and overtones that on Mobile Fidelity's analog edition bring listeners to closer to the creative passions than ever before.


    Mastered from the original master tapes and pressed on 180g 45RPM vinyl at RTI, this collectable audiophile version of Nefertiti joins the ranks of eleven other essential Davis records given supreme sonic and packaging treatment by Mobile Fidelity. Afforded supreme dynamics and full-range extension, cyclical melodies resonate with a moody character and ambience normally only heard in small jazz clubs. Instrumental pitch, too, is spot-on accurate, a measuring stick for how all acoustic-based passages should be experienced.


    As he does on Sorcerer, Davis again cedes all compositional duties to his all-star band mates and focuses on his trumpet. Familiar albeit slightly dissonant, rooted in hard bop yet signaling the onset of fusion, the songs are grounded in inquisitive interplay and subconscious impressionism. Nefertiti reveals fresh devices and new directions every time you visit its cerebral worlds. And while each musician is given ample room to solo, the effort stands as an example of groupthink in that no individual stands out or shows off. The groundbreaking title track-during which the horn section recurrently repeats the melody as drummer Tony Williams and bassist Ron Carter improvise, thus inverting the conventional sense of a rhythm section-shines as a textbook example of such chemistry and unity.


    Throughout, the players' confidence, and Davis' trust in them, stamps every piece with rare self-assurance and authoritativeness. In particular, Williams and Carter bring rhythms to the forefront as the horns hypnotize and Herbie Hancock's piano points in several different directions like a compass gone crazy. Responsible for "Madness" and "Riot," Hancock contributes brief bursts of speed and slight aggression, but on a record on which complexity and introspection take precedent over blowing hot, the aural steam ultimately becomes opportunity for burrowing into unpredictable turns and deep grooves.


    Indeed, the thrilling sense of interplay and inclination of the ensemble to keep searching, moving forward in a concerted manner to uncover then-unheard jazz discoveries, marks Nefertiti as one of Davis' quintessential efforts. For historians, it's the signpost to the pioneering fusion the leader would begin to pursue with greater commitment on the record's follow-up, Miles in the Sky. For the rest of us, the album is music and music-making at its intriguing best.

The performance saw the debut of new songs such as Warped, Aeroplane, and Pea although the songs were in the beginning stages and the lyrics were very different from the final versions. The groups performance at Woodstock 94 was a huge success and catapulted the Chili Peppers into a different league of popularity and record sales.

    A Wayne "The Train" Hancock album is as refreshing as a beer pulled from a tub of ice on a hot summer's day; dang if it ain't always a kick how surprisingly JUST RIGHT it is. Slingin' Rhythm is just right, a finely honed brand of juke joint rhythm sitting in the sweet spot of American music invention between country, hillbilly, jazz, and Western swing. And while Wayne is indeed a throwback, the funny thing is, the more retro he gets, the fresher he sounds. His songs about the everyday and the everyman, with their driving rhythm and live-in-the-moment vibe, have a character and passion that go beyond a particular time. With its emphasis on organic interplay and extended soloing, Wayne and his band drive the centerline between tight and loose. Like a latter-day Bob Wills, spontaneously calling out encouragement, or Hank Sr and Ernest Tubb effortlessly knocking out smile (and dance)-through-the-pain honkytonk, Wayne Hancock delivers an unvarnished, BS-free restorative.
