The blood of all contemporary ‘Rock’ music can be traced to the legacies of many marvels.. Lightning Hopkins was playing ‘Rock and Roll” before such a thing even existed. Presley made black culture acceptable to those thinking South. Jerry Lee invented stage madness. This LP bleeds early gold.

The Beat!!!! flourished long enough to film 26 historic chapters. This program was a black and blues voice in the wilderness, giving many their first televised glimpse of Otis Redding, Percy Sledge, Freddie KIng, Garnett Mims, Sam and Dave and others. It’s raw, live power still inspires. Get On Up!

‘The First Lady of Song’ possessed a pure three octave range that thrived when she entered her elegant improvisational portal. Her work with Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong, Count Basie & Frank Sinatra endured time and changing styles. These early recordings spell a few words in a large vital book.

This brand of lightning only strikes a genre of music once. The force enlarges, enhances, damages, imparts, recites, alters & creates a sense of religious ambush. Lou Reed, John Cale, Sterling Morrison and Maureen Tucker threw the Beatle blueprint far away & left us dreaming in bliss and nightmare.

They were known as Girls Together Outrageously, a band of 7 festive, young nymphs devoted to frolicking with the male hormones of the 60’s R&R spectacle and running wild within the free revelations projected by Laurel Canyon and Sunset Boulevard. This LP captures that moment in time with perfection.
