    LINDA JONES:  The Complete Atco-Loma-Warner Brothers Recordings. CD

    Although her recording career only spanned just eight years, Newark, New Jersey-born Linda Jones left an indelible mark on the world of soul music thanks to her distinctive melismatic vocal style.  Her phrasing and approach were so unique that, 42 years after her untimely passing in March 1972 (the result of a diabetes-induced coma), Linda is still hailed by soul music aficionados and other recording artists (such as the late Teena Marie, who considered her a prime musical influence) as one of the genre’s greatest singers.

    GRATEFUL DEAD: DICK’S PICKS VOL. 14

  • Dick’s Picks 14 Presents an Unusually Stripped-Down Version of the Grateful Dead without Mickey Hart or Donna Godchaux

  • Includes an Unprecedented “MorningDew” Show Opener and Final Encore

  • Highlights Keith Godchaux’s Expressive Work on Keyboards

  • OUT OF PRINT AT RETAIL FOR YEARS 

    AVAILABLE December, 2 2014 PRE-ORDER COMING SOON! 


    GRATEFUL DEAD: Dick’s Picks Vol. 14—Boston Music Hall 11/30/73 & 12/2/73 (4-CD Set)

    This is one of the more unusual volumes in the entire Dick’s Picks series, both with respect to band configuration—neither Mickey Hart nor Donna Godchaux (who was off tour having a baby) are here—and the circumstances of the recording, as the first disc begins with a version of “Morning Dew” that had to serve as both a show opener and a sound check because the band was three hours late arriving for the gig! Interestingly, the last disc ends with an encore of  “Morning Dew” (in a particularly spectacular version) too, and one imagines archivist Dick Latvala chuckling over that symmetry as he put together this 4-CD set, which compiles highlights from two nights of a three-night stand at Boston Music Hall.

    ROSEMARY CLOONEY: Irving Berlin’s White Christmas (Expanded Edition). CD

    There never was a proper soundtrack album released of Michael Curtiz’s classic 1954 musical featuring Irving Berlin’s immortal score because Bing Crosby was under contract with Decca and Rosemary Clooney was under contract with Columbia. Decca didn’t want to promote a Columbia artist on their release so they brought in Peggy Lee for their version of the soundtrack album, and Columbia, in turn released this record.

    You know you’re a successful act in the music business when you’re disappointed that an album “only” hits #11 on the charts! But that’s how big the Kingston Trio were in 1960; all of their previous albums had hit #1, and they accounted for 20% of Capitol Records’ profits that year even at a time when the label’s roster included such superstars as Frank Sinatra and Nat “King” Cole.
