Eddie Cochran - Cut Across Shorty / blank: hum sound cut - London MSX 4348 DJ

Eddie Cochran

Cut Across Shorty / blank:

London : MSX 4348 DJ (7")

Eddie Cochran devotees here's a seldom seen 1960 British promo for the pre-release of London HLG 9115, this Eddie rarity is in unusually fine clean condition.

Listen to this highly regarded "hillbilly" rocker framing Eddie's much loved upturn top lip snarl, soften by his rhythmic guitar playing.

Eddie tells the captivating story of "Shorty" having to run a race against Dan to win the hand of Miss Lucy. Although Dan "had all the money and the looks" but Shorty "must have had something that wasn't in books!". As Miss Lucy encourage Shorty to cheat by short-cutting across country. A great example of Rock N' Roll storytelling, vividly painting the picture of the ruff-cut country boy Shorty beating the slick clean-cut City Boy Dan to the winnming line; as it was Shorty, Miss Lucy wanted to wed, so the wily gal had fixed the race.

A short uplifting tale of young love, so brilliantly written by Marijohn Wilkin & Rockabilly legend Wayne Walker, so splendidly retold by the engaging "tongue in cheek" delivery of Eddie Cochran .

Rare and highly collectable as this single sided promo. That I really enjoyed having on my turntable.

Winston Shan / Harmonians - Matilda / Come To Me - Bullet BU 411

Winston Shan / Harmonians

Matilda / Come To Me

Bullet : BU 411 (45s)

1969 keyboard driven Skinhead Reggae dance groove, saturated in slicky vocal-group harmonies. The "Wailing Soul" man's lead voicel rides relentless dance pulses, with the Harmonians delivering shrill answering choruses throughout the recording.

Strong, rich dance Reggae of the highest quality, featuring a fabulous instrumental break before ending with a flurry of addictive metronomic beats and every pitch of soaring vocal group harmony.

Flip it over the Harmonians go it alone but serve up a just as impressive (if not better) dance session..so good in fact it triggered a limited reissue in 2018.

Both sides heavily feature high-end vocal group unity woven into a compelling dance arrangements.

Marcia Griffith / Lester Sterling - Feel Like Jumping / Wiser Than Solomon - Studio One  7340

Marcia Griffith / Lester Sterling

Feel Like Jumping / Wiser Than Solomon

Studio One: 7340 (45s)

The best record I've reviewed in quite some time, a instant "rewind" for me!

Original first press red with silver text for the "A" / black label red with silver text for the "B"

One Bob Marley's Princesses gives up an irrepressible performance on this lively Jackie Mittoo composition produced by the innovative Clement "Coxsone" Dodd. Who brilliantly decorated the session with squeaky saxophone blows, reklkentless make-vocal group "La La's and whoops" and an inspired sax break inviting more and more whooping. The "jumping" cocktail is truly intoxicating, another "Clement" addition is a snarling intrusion of a lone male voice "Yeah Yeah" so far out of tune proceedings it is nothing short of brilliant!

Just my fave tune of the summer!

The flipside is again a horn saturated production, a finger-snapping mid-tempo, bass-guitar propelled Rock Steady journey from the great Lester Sterling. Another cool tune, worthy of your attention.

Two great sides with Marcia completely blowing me away!

Hugh Roy / Nora Dean with Tommy McCook Quintet - Rule The Nation / Angle-Lala - Teasure Isle 7903

Hugh Roy / Nora Dean with Tommy McCook Quintet

Rule The Nation / Angle-Lala

Treasure Isle : 7903 (7")

The fertile mind of Ewart Beckford (Hugh Roy) a prime the pioneer of "Toasting", using his wonderful voice to "rap" over this Tommy McCook's atmospheric arrangement. His ad-libs f lowing seamlessly throughout the narcotic landscape of gentle jazzy horns, relentless rasping Güiro encouraging Hugh Roy's enthusiastic one-liners, shouts, chants and squeals. That many consider the signposting that later formed the basis of Hip Hop. This performance is subtly addictive, and has built up a huge reputation, with it high on many DJ's / Collectors want lists. One listen with reveal why, you'll be hooked headlong into it's charms.

Such a super-cool recording.

As is the innovative flipside, peppered with weird and wonderful sound effects, running through bongo dominated rhythms as Nora asks "where have you been all my life boy" between the "Afro/Latin" pulses, Nora injecting her own sultry "Voodoo" input.. again this is a top tune! Addictive in the extreme, complete littered breaks/beats of a most unusual kind.

Two killer sides, delivered by two highly gifted Jamaican artists and a superior backing band under the mastery of Duke Reid.

A MUST OWN 45.
