horoya band national @ 45tours



I believe the very best Syliphone stuff is on the singles, here's another collection from far and near. Some sound clean, others nasty, but they're all here, including five consecutive singles from 1974 and three tracks from the annual Discotheque hits series that were not released as 45s. For the like-minded, check out this bootleg cassette with what seem to be Syliphone outtakes. Great ones. Flinstonian sound quality, but still..!

paul bley trio plus john gilmore - turns



March 9, 1964 session featuring John Gilmore on tenor sax. Bley released some of this on his own IAI label in 1975 and the rest appeared on a Savoy new music anthology, but this Michael Cuscuna vinyl, which briefly slipped out just as LP racks were being reconfigured for longbox CDs, has everything in one place. Record and cover both in glorious mono.

legendary stardust cowboy mercury 45s 1968



The Legendary Stardust Cowboy's three Mercury 45s, along with some Ohio obscurities a discerning pal from Cleveland's original Record Rendezvous squirreled away for me long long ago. Both Johnny Angel and Tom Claire were neighborhood lounge Sinatras, the former liable to scare off even the wildest divorcée with his deranged BANG! BANG! BANG! scatting. Ernest & D.L. Rocco bring outsider art into the 80s, while Alan Zahorchak is in an orbit all his own. Total WHAT, Jones?! Finally, a perfect photo of our hero in Vegas, dressed for success, from the interwebs.
