Link694Carlos y José Carlos y José Carlos Y Jose Carlos y Jose were one of the longest running and most successful groups in traditional norteño music with over 85 albums to their name, spanning since the beginnings, all the way to the 90's. They are without a doubt a mainstain in many Mexican parties, events, and gatherings with songs such as "El Chubasco", "Flor de Capomo", "Amores Fingidos", and among others. [a=Carlos Salazar (9)] (Lead Vocals and Accordion) founded the band in General Teran, Nuevo Leon, with [a=Jose Rodriguez (15)]. But, they began their professional career in Camargo, Tamaulipas in 1968. Their first two hits were with the corrido singles "El Nuevo Albur de Amor" and the lament "La Mata de Sandia." These songs were played on the powerful border radio stations that broadcast from Mexico and throughout the southwest and into the midwest, and reached migrant workers and immigrant families who purchased their music en masse. They furthered their success with a string of hits in their homeland such as "Estrellita del Norte al Oriente," "Yo Tambien Soy de Teran," "La Carta Que Te Mande, "Cuentame Tus Penas," "Pistoleros Famosos," and many others. Carlos y Jose toured relentlessly all over Mexico, in and the U.S. in California, New Mexico, Texas, and Arizona, developing a loyal following. The group reached superstar status with their international smash "El Chubasco," shattered all Mexican sales records, and spread their fame to Florida, Puerto Rico, and throughout Central and South America. Their songs -- and sometimes the band itself -- have appeared in over 24 films, including Pistoleros Famosos La Coyota, and La Muerte del Palomo, and on Mexican and Puerto Rican television countless times. They have been nominated for numerous Latin Grammys, and won seven Gold and four Platinum recordings. They have also won the Aztec Gold Calendar Yuri award. Their 2013 album, Cabalgando por el Pacífico: En Vivo, is a music and video package that again placed on Billboard's Regional Mexican chart.

Link174Vice Vukov Vice Vukov Vice Vukov Vice Vukov Croatian pop singer (born July 3, 1936 in Šibenik) Vice Vukov used to be one of the most popular singers in Yugoslavia during the 1960's. He appeared at the Eurovision Song Contest in 1963 and 1965. Because of his support to the "Croatian Spring" movement he was politically persecuted. In 1970 his songs and his performing were banned in the Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Invitations to festival appearances were becoming scarce, he was banned from TV shows, and the shows already recorded were bunkered. Fearing arrest he decided not to return to Yugoslavia after his Australian tour in January 1972. He settled in Paris, France instead. In the meantime, in Yugoslavia, playing of his recordings publicly in any means was banned, and it was illegal to sell his records and/or to reissue his recordings. This ban was in force until 1988. He returned to Yugoslavia in 1976, but was forbidden from public performing and traveling. Improved political situation allowed him an attempt with a self-released compilation cassette release in 1986. After the introduction of democracy to Croatia, Vice Vukov became a prominent supporter of the Social Democratic Party of Croatia. He held a seat in the Croatian Parliament from 2003. In November, 2005 Vice Vukov had an accident and head injury, and since that moment on he was in a persistent vegetative state. He died September 24, 2008 in Zagreb, Croatia.

Empezó a cantar y a tocar con los amigos del barrio a la edad de 6 años. Por entonces comenzó, a ganarse la vida participando en concursos. En 1963 firmó su primer contrato para hacer de chico de los recados en Discos Fuentes. En 1965, entró a formar parte de Los Corraleros de Majagual, con los que grabó durante siete años. En un principio utilizaba el sobrenombre de Joselito, pero luego le empezaron a llamar Fruko por su parecido con un personaje de un anuncio de conservas que decía: "La salsa de tomate Fruco (nombre original del producto)... el secreto del sabor". En sus giras con Los Corraleros de Majagual se codeó con maestros de la talla y fama de Alfredo Gutiérrez, Calixto Ochoa, Eliseo Herrera, Abraham Núñez, Lisandro Meza y Julio Erazo. En Nueva York conoció el auge de la salsa y, de vuelta en Colombia, grabó el disco Tesura en 1970. De esta producción solamente se prensaron 400 discos. Se destacan los temas :Tesura, Botando Corriente, Improvisando y El Vidriero. Ése fue el origen del nombre del grupo Fruko & Sus Tesos; siendo "teso" sinónimo de "tieso", daba a entender que eran "los duros del barrio". Al principio, Fruko no tuvo éxito, pero no se desanimó y siguió grabando y editando discos hasta que logró que el público demandase más canciones. Sus éxitos A Bailar Oriza, El Ausente, El Tronco Seco, A la memoria del muerto, El Caminante, Tania, Manyoma y El Preso, fueron hits en Colombia y Estados Unidos. A mediados de la década de 1970, la música de Fruko y sus Tesos, con las voces de Edulfamid "Piper Pimienta" Diaz, Joe Arroyo y Wilson Manyoma, era muy popular, no sólo en Colombia sino también en el resto de Latinoamérica. Alcanzaron cierto éxito musical en los Estados Unidos, e incluso tocaron en el Madison Square Garden y lograron el premio de la revista Record World a la mejor orquesta de música tropical de América.

Rice first burst forth onto the music scene with a 1970 revival of the popular Jimmy Gilmore pop classic “Sugar Shack” and then Bruce Channel’s “Hey Baby”. Born into a musical family with its own radio show, Bobby began performing publicly at an early age. Later he decided to test his wings as a solo artist in his native Wisconsin. He succeeded, however, beyond expectations: scoring nationally. As a stylist, he proved especially adept in adding country flavor to spicy standards like “Lover Please”, “Mountain of Love” and “Suspicion” Still, it was in introducing his own song “You Lay So Easy On My Mind” in late 1972, that he found a lasting niche in country music. “You Lay so Easy On My Mind” went on to be his first number one national chart record and was later recorded by such artists as Conway Twitty and Loretta Lynn, Roy Orbison, Pat Boone, Andy Williams, David Houston, Jerry Springer and others. Proving he was no “one-hit wonder”, he scored the next spring with another Top 10 tune “You Give Me You”. He is that rare breed who shows us that, talent will win, by recording his initial hits on independent labels. With his career in high gear, he followed through with more Top 10 singles, among them, “Write Me A Letter” and “Freda Comes Freda Goes”. Country classics he has breathed new life into include, “Pick Me Up On Your Way Down”, “My Special Angel” and “Oh Baby Mine”.

Having signed up for James Tate, he was soon performing under his new stage name 'Lee Lynch', at The Winter Gardens, Morecambe, as the support act for Emile Ford & The Checkmates. In 1961 Lee landed a two year contract to appear at The Nuffield Centre, Trafalgar Square and in 1963 he joined The Tropical Showband, who were resident at The 32 Club in Harlesden, appearing with, amoungst others, Tom Jones, Van Morrison and Jim Reeves. In 1965 Lee formed his own band 'The Blue Angels' and their debut single was released in 1966 on the Decca label, the Lennon & McCartney song 'You Won't See Me'. In 1969, Lee represented Great Britain in an international song contest in Belgium with a song called 'Stay Awhile', which soon went to the top of the Belgian charts and was a huge success in various countries. There were several hit singles from the subsequent LP 'Stay Awhile With Lee Lynch'.

Link150Vittorio Gassman Vittorio Gassman ItalyVittorio Gassman Vittorio Gassman (Il Mattatore) (September 1, 1922 - June 29, 2000) was an Italian theatre and film actor and director. Born in Genoa to a wealthy family of German origins, Gassmann was considered one among the best Italian actors and is commonly recalled as an extremely professional, versatile, magnetic interpreter, whose long career includes both important productions as well as dozens of divertissements (which gave him a vast popularity). While very young he moved to Rome, where he attended the studies at the Accademia Nazionale d'Arte Drammatica where some of the most important figures of Italian theatre and cinema also studied, such as Paolo Stoppa, Rina Morelli, Adolfo Celi, Luigi Squarzina, Elio Pandolfi, Rossella Falk, Lea Padovani and, later, with Paolo Panelli, Nino Manfredi, Tino Buazzelli, Gianrico Tedeschi, Monica Vitti, Luca Ronconi and many others. His debut was in Milan, in 1942, with Alda Borelli in Niccodemi's Nemica (theatre), he then moved to Rome and the Teatro Eliseo joining Tino Carraro and Ernesto Calindri in a team that remained famous; with them he acted in a range of plays from bourgeois comedy to the sophisticated intellectual theatre, with no apparent difficulty in the sudden changes. In 1946 he made his film debut in Preludio d'amore, the year after he appeared in five films. In 1948 his famous interpretation in Riso Amaro displayed his love for cinema and his capability of excelling both in movies and at the theatre. It was with Luchino Visconti's company that Gassman achieved his mature successes, together with Stoppa, Rina Morelli and Paola Borboni. He played a vigorous Kowalski in Tennessee Williams' Un tram che si chiama desiderio, then emphatic in Shakespeare's Rosalinda or in Vittorio Alfieri's Oreste. He then joined the Teatro Nazionale with Tommaso Salvini, Massimo Girotti, Arnoldo Foà, for a successful Peer Gynt (Ibsen). With Luigi Squarzina in 1952 he co-founded and co-directed the Teatro d'Arte Italiano, producing the first complete version of Hamlet in Italy, then rare works such as Seneca's Tieste or Eschilo's The Persians. In 1956, a key year in his career, Gassman played a memorable Othello with the great actor Salvo Randone, exchanging with him the roles of the Moor and Iago. A little later, in the television series entitled Il Mattatore (spotlight chaser) he obtained unexpected success and Il Mattatore soon became the nickname that accompanied him for the rest of his life. That year Gassman also directed and starred in a movie dedicated to theatre: it was a version of Kean. A true perfectionist, he always hated imperfect diction, or dialectal corruptions (but he was also able to render, perfectly and when needed, most of the many Italian dialects). Quite bravely, he accepted the challenge of directing Adelchi, one of the less known and less "easy" works by Alessandro Manzoni. He toured his production to half a million spectators, crossing Italy with his Teatro Popolare Itinerante (a newer edition of the famous Carro di Tespi). His productions include most of the famous authors of 20th century, with repeated returns tothe classics of Shakespeare, Dostoevskij and the Greeks. He also founded a theatre school in Florence, which formed many of the more talented actors of the current generations. In cinema he worked abroad several times and during a stint in Hollywood he met and married Shelley Winters. But, despite his success in films, Gassman never left theatre. In the later part of his career, he added poetry to his repertoire, helping to bring to Italy foreign works. Gassman the actor, married "only" actresses: Nora Ricci (with whom he had his first daughter Paola, an actress herself and wife of Ugo Pagliai), Shelley Winters, Juliette Maynel, who gave him Alessandro (also an actor), and Diletta D'Andrea. Gassman was a man of intense emotions and intellectual honesty; his notable sense of humour and self-irony, brought him in the 1990s to take part in a popular TV show in which he very formally and 'seriously' recited documents such as the gas invoice, as well as the telephone bill and similar texts. He rendered them with the same professional skill that made him famous while reciting Dante's Commedia. Generally acclaimed as an actor, Gassman was also discussed as a man, due to his private life - his divorces (a noted scandal in 1950s and 60s), his initial atheism (later he gained a certain personalistic faith). Also, in his public appearances on the media he often gave original or unconventional comments, sometimes with the clear intention of disturbing the moderated cultural positions; he also gained many enemies in the world of art for similarly frank judgements. In his latest years he was victim of depression. He died of a heart-attack in his Roman home.

Link049Καίτη Χωματά Καίτη Χωματά GreeceΚαίτη Χωματά Αικατερίνη (Καίτη) Χωματά Ελληνίδα τραγουδίστρια, που ταυτίστηκε με το «Νέο Κύμα» του ελληνικού τραγουδιού στα μέσα της δεκαετίας του '60. Η Αικατερίνη (Καίτη) Χωματά, με καταγωγή από τη Νάξο, γεννήθηκε στις 24 Οκτωβρίου 1946 στην Αθήνα και έζησε τα νεανικά της χρόνια στην Πλάκα. Σπούδασε κλασσικό χορό και με το τραγούδι ασχολήθηκε εντελώς τυχαία στις αρχές της δεκαετίας του '60, όταν εξαιτίας μιας αποβολής από το σχολείο, βρέθηκε στην εκπομπή «Νέα Ταλέντα», που παρουσίαζε ο Γιώργος Οικονομίδης στους ραδιοθαλάμους του ΕΙΡ στο Ζάππειο. Την άκουσε ο Αλέκος Πατσιφάς (παραγωγός και ιδιοκτήτης της δισκογραφικής εταιρείας ΛΥΡΑ) και τη σύστησε στον συνθέτη Γιάννη Σπανό, που εκείνη την εποχή πηγαινοερχόταν μεταξύ Παρισιού και Αθήνας και αναζητούσε νέες και άφθαρτες φωνές. Ο συνθέτης ενθουσιάστηκε με τη φωνή της Καίτης Χωματά και της έδωσε το πρώτο της τραγούδι «Μια αγάπη για το καλοκαίρι» (σε στίχους Γιώργου Παπαστεφάνου), που υπήρξε μία από τις μεγαλύτερες επιτυχίες του ελληνικού τραγουδιού. Η Καίτη Χωματά ερμήνευσε με μοναδικό τρόπο τα πρώτα τραγούδια του Γιάννη Σπανού, που σηματοδότησαν την αρχή του Νέου Κύματος, ενός βραχύβιου μουσικού κινήματος, που κινούταν μεταξύ λαϊκού και έντεχνου, με κύριο χαρακτηριστικό τις τρυφερές και φευγάτες μπαλάντες, που εκτελούνταν από λίγα όργανα ή ακόμα συνηθέστερα από μία κιθάρα και μία φωνή. Ο όρος «Νέο Κύμα» έχει νονό τον Γιάννη Σπανό και αποτελεί μετάφραση του γαλλικού nouvelle vague. Η Καίτη Χωματά συνεργάστηκε ακόμη µε τους συνθέτες Χρήστο Λεοντή, Νίκο Μαµαγκάκη, Γιώργο Κριµιζάκη, Ηλέκτρα Παπακώστα, Βασίλη Κουµπή, Νίκο Δανίκα, ενώ είπε πολλά τραγούδια, σε δεύτερη εκτέλεση, του Μάνου Χατζιδάκι, του Μίκη Θεοδωράκη και του Σταύρου Ξαρχάκου. Ερμήνευσε περίπου 200 τραγούδια («Να διώξω τα σύννεφα», «Μια αγάπη για το καλοκαίρι», «Κι αν σ' αγαπώ δεν σ' ορίζω», «Το Χριστινάκι», «Η Μαρία των Βράχων», «Άσπρα καράβια τα όνειρά μας», σε ντουέτο με τον Μιχάλη Βιολάρη) και εξέδωσε 18 δίσκους. Το 1965 διαγωνίστηκε στο Φεστιβάλ Τραγουδιού Θεσσαλονίκης με το τραγούδι του Γιάννη Σπανού «Μιλάς» κι ένα χρόνο αργότερα εμφανίστηκε στην μπουάτ «Παράγκα» (στην οδό Κέκρωπος στην Πλάκα), που είχε ανοίξει ο πρώτος της σύζυγος, ο ηθοποιός Βασίλης Μαυροµµάτης. Εκεί καταγράφηκε η πρώτη της παρουσία στο πάλκο, µαζί µε τον Διονύση Σαββόπουλο, ο οποίος μόλις είχε έρθει από τη Θεσσαλονίκη. Την επόµενη σεζόν, το 1967, στην μπουάτ «Αυλαία» συνεργάστηκε µε τον Μιχάλη Βιολάρη, με τον οποίο συναντήθηκε για πρώτη φορά και η φιλία και συνεργασία τους έμελλε να κρατήσει μία ζωή. Το 1969 πρωταγωνίστησε στην ταινία του Βασίλη Μαυρομάτη «Σκιές στην Άμμο», μία καλοκαιρινή ιστορία σ' ένα αιγαιοπελαγίτικο νησί, στο οποίο εκτυλίσσεται μία υπόθεση αρχαιοκαπηλίας, σε σενάριο Ιάκωβου Καμπανέλλη και μουσική Γιάννη Σπανού. Στην ταινία έπαιζε και ο Μιχάλης Βιολάρης κι εκεί πρωτακούστηκαν τα τραγούδια «Βάρκα χωρίς πανιά», «Μακρυμαλλούσα κοπελιά» και «Η Μπαλάντα της Καίτης». Σε νεαρή ηλικία ήρθε αντιμέτωπη με τον καρκίνο, τον οποίο πολέμησε γενναία για 32 χρόνια, με αποτέλεσμα να υπάρχουν μεγάλα διαστήματα αποχής από το τραγούδι. Τη χειμερινή σεζόν 2009-2010 τραγούδησε στη μουσική σκηνή «Ωδήsia» στο Γκάζι, μαζί με την Πόπη Αστεριάδη, τον Μιχάλη Βιολάρη, τον Κώστα Καράλη, ενώ δεν πρόλαβε να τραγουδήσει μαζί µε τους φίλους της από το Νέο Κύµα στις προγραμματισμένες εμφανίσεις στο «Μπάντµιντον». Η Καίτη Χωματά είχε κάνει δύο γάµους. Τον πρώτο µε τον ηθοποιό Βασίλη Μαυροµµάτη, µε τον οποίο απέκτησε δύο κόρες (και τέσσερα εγγόνια), ενώ τα τελευταία 31 χρόνια σύντροφός της ήταν ο μέγας θαυμαστής της Γιάννης Λιανός. Έφυγε από τη ζωή στις 24 Οκτωβρίου 2010, ανήμερα των γενεθλίων της, σε ηλικία 64 ετών. Νοσηλευόταν στο νοσοκομείο ΝΙΜΤΣ, μετά από τροχαίο ατύχημα.

Link047Otis Leavill Otis Leavill Otis Leavill Otis Leavill Cobb Born: February 8, 1937, Dewey Rose, Georgia. Died: July 17, 2002, Chicago. His first record "Ride Sally Ride," dropped on Mercury's Limelight subsidiary, though Otis says he waxed it for St. Lawrence Records who evidently leased the master. His next release, "Gotta Right to Cry," a Mayfield song, came out on Lucky Records; Lance had already waxed and released the tune in 1963 for Okeh Records. His third release, "Let Her Love Me," in 1966, gave his career the boost it needed reaching number 31 on Billboard's R&B chart; the lilting Mayfield ballad, with the Impressions singing in the background became Blue Rock Records' first national hit. Dick Clark's Caravan of Stars provided Leavill his first touring opportunity. Initially, he went along to accompany Major Lance, but with disk jockeys spinning "Let Her Love Me," Clark gave Leavill a paid slot on the Caravan to sing two songs. Prior to that first hit, he befriended record producer Carl Davis who worked at Okeh Records. At Okeh he was Davis' right-hand man, helping to schedule artists, getting musicians and backing singers to the studio, etc. Leavill could spot talent, he discovered the Chi-lites, Tyrone Davis, Bohannon, and Manchild from Indianapolis, IN, whose members included Kenneth "Baby Face" Edmonds. Leavill and Davis passed on Yvette Stevens, a fast, hot-blooded 16-year-old singer, and her younger sister, Yvonne, they thought Yvette in particular would be a major distraction; in spite of her young age, older men hovered around the vivacious, full-throated, curvy teen like flies. Yvette became Chaka Khan, and Yvonne, Taka Boom. He raves about the Vibrations' ability to sing the "money songs" as he called standards, the tunes that got you cushy gigs in Las Vegas. Yet, it never really happened for the Californian natives like everyone predicted, their Okeh recordings' "Pick Me," "Misty," "Love in Them There Hills," and others were only modest sellers. Blue Rock Records was Leavill's next stop. There he cut some memorable sides, including Billy Butler's "To Be or Not to Be," and "Let Me Live." When Davis formed the Dakar label, he appointed Otis as Vice-President and gave him shares in the company. Leavill also recorded for Dakar where he enjoyed his biggest hit: Eugene Record's "I Love You," a song that sounded like Leavill imitating Record, the Chi-lites' lead singer; it climbed to number ten R&B but never threatened the Pop Top 40, stalling number 64. Another Record composition "Love Uprising" nearly repeated the success of "I Love You," checking in at number 19 R&B and number72 Pop. Another single, "There's Nothing Better Than Loving You," scraped into the lower rungs of the R&B chart. Despite some success, Dakar never released an album by Leavill. Willie Henderson produced Leavill's recordings at Dakar; and Record and Barbara Acklin did the backing vocals. After Dakar's demise Carl Davis went to Brunswick Records, Leavill followed and had a few releases including "Can't Stop Loving You" (which sells for $40.00 to collectors), but never again realized the success he had at Dakar. His releases after that were sporadic. "Right Back in Love" came out on Columbia Records, but after a few more droppings, Leavill's recording career ended. A songwriter also, BMI lists 41 songs by Leavill. He wrote "There's Goes the Lover" (Gene Chandler) and "Sweet Music" for Major Lance; he produced sides for Tyrone Davis, and supervised Major Lance's Motown album Now Arriving. More prominent behind the scenes than out front, his memories of music are all good. Divorced (from Minnie Cobb), his daughter Misti graduated from Miliken University in Decatur, IL. In 1999, he toured the European clubs with the Dells. Unknown to many, he and Carl Davis coached football at Hyde Park High for seven years. Never one to sit back and wait, Leavill also owned the '76 Car Wash and Gas Station at Washington and Pulaski, and moonlighted as a policeman in a west Chicago 'burb. He formed OK Records in 2000 after a long hiatus from the record business. Sadly, Otis Leavill passed July 17, 2002 of a heart attack; he was 65. Til the end , he had lost none of the drive, hustle, or energy that first won him respect as an amateur boxer at St. Albees.
Link047Noraniza Idris Noraniza Idris MalaysiaNoraniza Idris Nor Aniza Binte Haji Idris or better known as Noraniza Idris in the Malaysian music industry, is known in her home country as the Queen of Malay Traditional Pop Songs. The genre she plays is known as Irama Malaysia, which fuses local traditional genres with Anglo-American pop music. Lyrically, her music includes references to the revival of traditional Malay music. She began her career as a wedding singer, and soon found herself in the recording studio after participating the Bintang RTM (a talent search singing contest) in 1985. Noraniza Idris adalah penyanyi popular Malaysia yang merupakan salah seorang penyanyi Malaysia yang berjaya melahirkan album solo di setiap 4 dekad berturut selain M Nasir, Anita Sarawak, Sharifah Aini, Khatijah Ibrahim, Jamal Abdillah dan Ramlah Ram. Nor Aniza Binti Haji Idris @ Noraniza Idris dilahirkan di Kampung Melayu, Kluang Johor. Anak kepada penyanyi boria dan qariah Al-Quran ini, ialah anak keenam daripada dua-belas adik beradik. Berpendidikan rendah di Sekolah Tengku Mahmud 1, Kluang dan seterusnya melanjutkan pengajian di Sekolah Tinggi Kluang. Noraniza Idris telah menyertai Bintang RTM pada tahun 1983 dan 1985 sebelum merakamkan lagu dalam album. Ketika menjalani rakaman peringkat awal Bintang RTM 1985, Hamidi Rashid, Pengurus Artis dan Reportaire Life Record pada masa itu, tertarik dengan kelunakan suara Noraniza Idris. Dia lalu mendekati Noraniza dan ayahnya, Idris Ahmad, ketika kedua-dua anak beranak itu menikmati juadah di kantin Angkasapuri. Hamidi menawarkan Ani menjadi artis syarikat rakamannya. Ini peluang keemasan biarpun pertandingan Bintang RTM belum selesai. idris setuju Ani menjadi artis rakaman.Pada separuh akhir Bintang RTM 1985, Noraniza gagal lagi namun ia tidak menangis seperti ketika kegagalan 1983.Mungkin dia sudah dewasa. Tambahan pula kehadiran Hamidi bagaikan ubat yang dicari selama ini. Ani beruntung dapat merakam suara untuk album lagu-lagu daripada filem bersama penyanyi terkenal lain berjudul Melayu Deli. Sejak itu, Ani terus diberi peluang merakamkan satu demi album bersama Life Records. Bermula dari situ, Noraniza Idris telah membentuk imej dan personalitinya sebagai seorang penyanyi. Setelah Melayu Deli, Noraniza Idris merakamkan album Kaparinyo : Seleksi Lagu-lagu Dari Filem dan Nostalgia Malindo sebanyak 3 Volume. Popularitinya semakin meluas apabila beliau merakamkan pula lagu-lagu sendiri menerusi 3 buah album pop Melayu Mengemis Rindu, Inginku Sandarkan Harapan dan Masihkah Dirimu Menyayangiku. Noraniza mula mengikat kontrak bersama syarikat rakaman antarabangsa Sony Music pada 1991 sekaligus berpeluang bekerjasama dengan penerbit terkenal Ramli M.S.. Album perdananya bersama Sony adalah sebuah album duet bersama penyanyi pop terkenal Ibnor Riza yang berjudul Seindah Budimu. Setelah itu beliau mula merakamkan lagu-lagu dari filem Melayu klasik menerusi album Lagu-lagu dari Filem dan Kenangan Lama, sebanyak 9 Volume bersama Abdullah Chik setelah gandingan bersam Ibnor tidak mendapat sambutan menggalakkan berbanding dengan Abdulah. Sony seterusnya menerbitkan album pop etnik berjudul Noraniza Idris pada 1992 terbitan Ramli M.S bersama Jimmy Ali yang mula membuka jalan kepada Noraniza untuk mencuba muzik etnik kontemporari. Walaubagaimanapun, album ini tidak mendapat sambutan yang menggalakkan ekoran pasaran muzik tradisional masih berada di tahap konvensional. Selepas album tersebut, Noraniza masih aktif menyanyi bersama Abdullah Chik tambahan beliau telah keluar dari Sony Music. Namun pada 19 September 1995 ketika bersama menjayakan sebuah pertunjukan pentas di Kota Bharu, Kelantan, Abdullah Chik jatuh di belakang pentas lalu menghembuskan nafas terakhir, yang kemudiannya disahkan akibat serangan jantung. Jenazah Abdullah Chik dibawa ke Kuala Lumpur dan dikebumikan di tanah perkuburan Islam, Petaling Jaya. Sejak itu Noraniza sedikit murung dan tidak bersemangat untuk terus memperjuangkan irama tradisional Melayu. Setelah tiga tahun menyepi kerana memberi perhatian terhadap keluarga, akhirnya pada tahun 1997, Noraniza Idris telah melahirkan album eksperimental yang bercorak pop tradisional, Pertemuan beliau bersama penerbit album tradisional terkenal Suhaimi Mohd Zain atau lebih dikenali sebagai Pak Ngah ternyata memberi tuah. Maka lahirlah album Ala Dondang yang diterbitkan atas kepercayaan Suria Record (SRC). Memandangkan sambutan yang menggalakkan, beliau terus kekal merakamkan album-album yang berirama tradisional Malaysia seperti Masyhur dan Seri Balas. Noraniza diiktiraf sebagai pelopor kepada irama Pop Etnik dan Tradisional kerana berani menerbitkan album tradisional secara tidak konvensional seperti sebelum ini. Pada album yang berikutnya, Noraniza Idris telah membuat satu pembaharuan pada album beliau dengan menyelitkan lagu yang berunsurkan peribumi tradisional. Maka terbitlah lagu Ngajat Tampi (ciptaan Rosli Selasih/Siso) dalam album Bekaba. Seterusnya Noraniza terus melahirkan album-album yang banyak bereksperimen dengan muzik sejagat hingga diberi gelaran Ratu Pop Tradisional. Pada tahun 2006, Noraniza Idris telah menerbitkan sebuah album kompilasi khas untuk menandakan 20 tahun penglibatan beliau dalam industri muzik ini, iaitu Lenggok 20 Tahun. Album ini juga sempat memuatkan sebuah lagu lama yang diolah semula, Dayung Sampan, dengan menampilkan pemain erhu, He Yun yang didatangkan khas dari Negara Cina. Pada tahun 2008 menyaksikan Noraniza diberi penghormatan apabila lagu-lagunya nyanyian dipilih untuk mewakili konsep muzik Melayu Kontemporari dalam pertandingan realiti Sehati Berdansa Musim 2. Lagu-lagunya dipilih untuk persembahan tarian oleh kesemua peserta program tersebut(yang terdiri daripada pasangan selebriti Malaysia). Noraniza menerbitkan album Cintaku Satu pada 2010 yang menyaksikan beliau bekerjasama dengan penyanyi-penyanyi baru seperti Jaclyn Victor, Marsha Milan Londoh dan ramai lagi.

Link046Jen Roger Jen Roger Jen Roger Jean-Roger Marcotte Jean-Roger Marcotte participe à une soirée d'amateurs en 1949 qui lui vaudra un long engagement au Café St-James de Montréal, où il chante sous le pseudonyme Johnny Rogers. Après s'être classé deuxième au concours radiophonique pancanadien Opportunity Knocks sur les ondes de CBC, il décroche un engagement de sept semaines au cabaret Chez Émile, à Québec1. En 1951, il devient le maître de cérémonie (MC) au El Mocambo pour ensuite se joindre à la troupe de burlesque de Rose Ouellette (La Poune). En 1953, la chanson Toi ma richesse (Rags To Riches), dont il signe l'adaptation française, devient un très grand succès, dépassant les 75 000 exemplaires vendus. Le patron de RCA Victor au Québec, Hugh Joseph, en prévision d'un possible accès au marché anglophone, modifie le nom du chanteur qui devient Jen Roger. Sa popularité devient si grande en seulement quelques mois qu'il doit souvent être escorté1. D'autres succès suivront rapidement tels Le miracle de Sainte-Anne, Marina, La madone, et plusieurs autres. Devenu Maître de cérémonie officiel du cabaret montréalais la Casa Loma en 1954, il s'assurera de présenter « le talent local ». D'ailleurs, Jen Roger fera aussi la promotion des artistes québécois par le biais de son émission Le palmarès des chansons à CKAC dans les années 1950. Il ouvre sa propre boite appelée Ami-Amie Lounge en 1957. Toujours comme M.C., on le retrouvera aussi dans de nombreux autres cabarets puis à la télévision où ses plus grands succès furent Monsieur Banco et Cabaret. Sur scène, il fait la Place des Arts et le Palais Montcalm (Québec) en 1967 avant de remporter le titre de Monsieur Radio Télévision la même année. Lors d'une de ses émissions des "Découvertes de Jen Roger", un jeune bambin de 9 ans fait sa marque et deviendra une vedette par la suite, il s'agit de René Simard. Vers la fin des années 1970, il se tourne vers la Floride et y établit résidence pendant plusieurs années.

Link046International Novelty Orchestra International Novelty Orchestra International Novelty Orchestra The International Novelty Quartet and The International Novelty Orchestra started appearing in record catalogues in the late 1920's and during the 1930's, becoming extremely popular with a string of best selling discs. No known serious study seems to have been made on the different groups formed solely as studio units to make records, with the xylophone and clever arrangements being always a special feature. They brought together some of the best musicians in England and also USA. Information on the participants is scant. These 'house bands' released discs in Europe under the this name also. The International Novelty Orchestra in the USA was a pseudonym for the Victor house band that made records by a band that Nat Shilkret conducted in the Victor studios. The pseudonym was first used in March 1922. The session data for US recordings has been published in Brian Rust's 'American Dance Band Discography'. Between 1922 and 1927 a total of 135 tracks were recorded, 36 of these were rejected and 99 were released on Victor in USA. Seventeen different vocalists were used but many tracks were no vocal. The International Novelty Quartet and The International Novelty Orchestra name was also applied to English domestic studio recordings of the same variety of music as that done in USA. The titles recorded in England seemed to be of 'foreign' material, thus giving the 'International' look. Brian Rust has been able to provide data from his journals for me, which has not been published in his books. The Bert and John Firman Orchestra directed some early sessions (1929-1930) [eg Zon T-5489 The Dickey Bird Hop]. The 'Choristers Waltz' recorded on 27th January 1930 used Sylvester Ahola (trumpet), clarinet, alto sax, Bert Read (piano), Rudy Starita (drums-vibraphone-xylophone) and was directed by John Firman. George Scott-Wood directed many later recordings. Both Rudy Starita and Harry Robbins seem likely zylophonists. George Scott Wood probably played piano and/or accordion on the discs that he directed. Harry Leader may have been involved in the mid 1930's. Few vocalists have been identified, except for two tracks by Sam Browne on RZ in 1932 and Ronnie Hill in 1937 on two tracks. They were released in Australia on Zonophone, HMV and Regal Zonophone labels. The earliest disc listed in the 1946 EMI Australian catalogue was 'Cuckoo and Lena' on Zonophone EE67 for The International Novelty Quartet [1926 USA, matrix 8472 & 8473]. The first listed for The International Novelty Orchestra was 'Amoureuse and Jolly Fellows' on Zonophone EF27. Not all their recordings were still listed in this 1946 edition. Probably the most prized vocal recording remembered is 'Silver Bell' on RZ G-22050 recorded on 22nd January 1934 by the quartet. This track used 2 trumpets, trombone, piccolo, 2 pianos, string bass, drums/xylophone and vocal duet. It was classified as 'The Quartet'!

Link044Maya Casabianca Maya Casabianca Maya Casabianca Margalit Azran Israeli-French singer. She was born in 1945, Casablanca, Morocco, under the name Margalit Azran hence its nickname Casabianca. Emigrated to Israel with her aunt and uncle in 1948, while her parents went to Paris. Her aunt and uncle, it seems, weren't able to adapt to life in Israel, so when she was 11 (1956) the family moved to Paris and she was reunited with her parents. She was discovered by a neighbor who worked for the Philips recording company, and she was signed by Philips under the name Maya Casabianca and was a sensation in France by the late 50's. Her total record sales, according to the Haaretz article, were 38 million. Like Dalida, and like so many of France's pop stars of the era who were "Mediterranean," she sang in French and Spanish. But she certainly is not remembered today anywhere near as reverentially as is Dalida. In the 70's moved to Haifa in Israel, where she continued her career. It comes up from time to time in France. She carried on a love affair with Farid Al-Atrash (the singer-'udist-actor, born in Syria but whose career was made in Egypt, brother of Asmahan) during the last four years of his life (he died in 1974). Maya also wrote a book, published in 2001, about her career and her time with Farid, under the Hebrew title Ani Vehu ("He and I"), and it also appeared in Arabic, issued by the Arabic culture department of the Israeli Ministry of Science, Culture and Sport.

Link241Les Bel Canto Les Bel Canto Les Bel Canto Claude Falardeau, Pierre Paquet, René d'Antoine Letarte, André Fortin, Aurèle Bolduc. Les Bel Canto. Cet ensemble de Québec a vu le jour au début des années soixante. Les membres fondateurs en ont été Claude Falardeau, Aurèle et son frère Guy Bolduc : trois guitaristes. Ils ont fait leurs débuts avec Marcel Lebel, batteur. René Letarte joignait le groupe un an plus tard. Lors de leur démission, Marcel et Guy ont été remplacés par André Fortin de Jonquière et Pierre " Moustique ou Mousse " Paquet de Québec. Leur premier quarante-cinq tours est paru en 1964 sur étiquette Première. Ils connaîtront leurs premiers grand succès avec leur composition Découragé et la chanson Feuille de gui de Jean-Pierre Ferland ; deux côtés d'un même disque à la tête des palmarès. Surnommés les " Seigneurs Nouvelle Vague ", en plus d'obtenir le prix qualité sur disques, en 1969, ils sont élus Groupe de l'année. Ils se sont produits sur les plus grandes scènes du Québec d'alors : Comédie canadienne, Place des Arts et les cabarets les plus en vogue. En 1970, ils étaient invités pour deux semaines à l'Exposition universelle d'Osaka, au Japon. Les Bel Canto produisirent quatre albums authentiques dont la plupart des chansons sont des créations originales ainsi qu'une vingtaine de quarante-cinq tours dont la majorité occupèrent les premières positions des palmarès de l'époque. Une Croix sur mon Nom, Quand Reviendras-tu?, Bonsoir à Demain, Seul, Coui-coui, ne sont que quelques titres à succès dont René Letarte (d'Antoine), bassiste et parolier du groupe, a signé tous les textes. Diverses compilations ont été réalisées depuis la dissolution du groupe survenue en 1971, mais un nouvel album est récemment paru sur le marché sous le titre : Les Bel Canto, Nos préférées (Mérite 22-947). Une sélection de leurs meilleures réalisations selon un choix unanime des cinq membres du groupe. Une biographie est actuellement en cours de rédaction. Les Bel Canto n'ont effectué qu'un seul retour sur scène, à l'aréna de Saint-Jérôme, en 1985. Le groupe change de nom à la fin de leur carrière pour celui des Kanto.

Link042Nerious Joseph Nerious Joseph Nerious Joseph Nerious Joseph Nereus Joseph first emerged on the Reggae scene in 1979 as lead singer with roots band Coptic Roots with whom his debut single "Roots & Culture" was released. After a few years of touring with the band he signed to London based record label FASHION RECORDS, this liaison resulted with his first number one hit "Sensi Crisis" quickly followed by "Special Lady/ "Danger Man" firmly establishing him on a sound footing. His debut album "Loves Gotta Take Its Time" included "Sensi Crisis" and "Move On Up" singles. He subsequently recorded two more albums for fashion," Yours To Keep" and "Guidance" from which the title track has become a classic U.K. eighties release. In the latter part of the 80’s he toured extensively in Europe and the Caribbean and supported names such as Bunny Wailer, Dennis Brown and Chakademus & pliers as well as headlining tours in Turkey and other places. After taking some time out, the early 90’s saw Nereus recording with Saxon Records who released his three hit singles "Shouldn’t Touch It"," Wonderful Feeling" and "Giving All My Time". Then came the collaboration with Reggae Super Group ‘"Passion" in 1996 with the National Chart hit "Share Your Love" on Charm Records who Nereus was then signed to. In March 1997, Nereus Joseph Unleashed his highly acclaimed album "REJOICE" for Charm Records from which came the hit singles" Rejoice" produced by Gussie P, "Keep Loving You" and "Keep up the Vibes" both produced by the Ruff Cutt band. Moving into the new millenium the collaboration with Ruff Cutt continued the result being his current highly acclaimed album "Hope, Faith & Love" from which the singles "Jah Never Fail" and "African Resistance" were released by Ruff Cutt Records. With support from the Ruff Cutt Band Nereus has been appearing live all over the U.K. and Europe more recently in Spain, France, and Italy his electrifying stage performances have been witnessed.
Link042C.L. Blast C.L. Blast C.L. Blast Clarence Lewis Jr. Vocalist C. L. Blast was originally from Birmingham, Alabama, where he came into the world as Clarence Lewis, Jr. By 1954, he was in New York recording for [a=Bobby Robinson]'s Red Robin label as Clarence 'Junior' Lewis, with one single issued in 1955. He died February 26, 2016 in Birmingham, Alabama, USA. He was 81 years old. In 1960, he cut at least three more singles for Robinson's Fury label, using his given name on one and Little Junior Lewis for the other two. He also did some songwriting and possibly production/engineering work for Robinson's operations in that period. And therein lies the New Orleans link. He shares co-writer credit with [a=Lee Dorsey] and Robinson on Lee's first giant Fury hit, "Ya Ya" from 1961. I do not know the extent of their collaboration or exactly why Lewis' name is on the record, as Robinson claims that when he came to town to record Dorsey, they got together and wrote the song in a New Orleans bar. Interestingly, Lewis also has writing credits on some other major Fury/Fire tunes of the era, including [a=Elmore James]' blues classic, "The Sky Is Crying", [a=Buster Brown]'s "Fannie Mae", and the Don Gardner/Dee Dee Ford raver, "I Need Your Lovin'". Once he separated from Robinson, Lewis recorded for Columbia, Scepter, and MGM in the first half of the decade. But his recording career did not make much noise, even though he was blessed with a strong, soulful voice. Lewis reappeared in 1967 as C. L. Blast on a single released both on [l24936] and, for some reason, on its subsidiary, Hip, too; but his association with either of the Memphis, TN labels went no further. Those sides appeared on the Stax CD box set reissue series some years back and were my first introduction to the singer. Around 1970, Blast made a few records under the direction of [a=Wardell Quezergue]. As well as the sides I'm featuring, they were "Everybody Just Don't Know What Love Is" b/w "Got To Find Someone" * on Pelican and "What Can I Do" b/w "I'm In A Daze" ** for United Artists. Though all good soul records, none of them hit pay-dirt; and Blast kept moving through the rest of the Seventies and early Eighties, recording for the Clintone, Juana, Cotillion and Park Place labels, never getting the attention that his rich vocal talents deserved. From looking at his BMI songwriting credits, I believe that later in life he took up gospel music. I first heard "Two Time One Is Two" and "Love Is Good" on the Funky Delicacies compilation, Wardell Quezergue's Funky Funky New Orleans and put them on my list. It took some searching, but I finally found this near mint siingle, which sounds a bit better than the vinyl source used on that CD. The Crestown imprint seems to have been a one-shot deal, as I can find no other listings for it. At the time, Quezergue was calling his operation Pelican Productions, which put out this 45 and had an associated label, Pelican Records, as well. Pelican released a few more singles, including the one by Blast mentioned earlier; but no commercial rewards were forthcoming from any of them. The producer began to do a lot of work at and with the fledgling Malaco Studios in Jackson, MS in 1970, most notably bringing [a=Jean Knight] and [a=King Floyd] there to record and producing their first smash hits. I would guess that his main impetus for the change of venue out of New Orleans was the demise of Cosimo Matassa's Jazz City studio, which severely impacted sessions in the city for several years. I bring this up because I am not sure where Quezergue recorded C. L. Blast. From the general date of the recordings, l'd guess they are Malaco sessions. Although the arrangements are not as stripped down and genuinely funky as the early Floyd and Knight sessions, they are good examples of Quezergue going for a more uptown, orchestrated soul arrangement and Blast delivering the goods vocally. While you can hear some tinges of funk within these tracks, there is nothing about them that would overtly tip you to an HOTG connection; and this was likely Quezergue's goal, attempting to appeal to a wider, more mainstream soul audience. The fact that this single has languished for over 30 years in relative obscurity goes to show that he failed to achieve that objective. Still, he helped to make a damn fine record. The music business is littered with talented artists, good intentions, and great records that went absolutely nowhere. Luck of the draw. Let's just be glad some of them still turn up now and again for our time-shifted enjoyment. Dan Phillips http://homeofthegroove.blogspot.com/2007/04/having-double-blast.html

Link041Жан Татлян Жан Татлян Жан Татлян Жан Татлян Жан Татлян родился в 1943г. в Греции в армянской семье, которая переехала в Советскую Армению, когда ему было 5 лет. Ж. Татлян Его музыкальные способности проявились очень рано. В 18 лет он становится солистом Государственного джаза Армении. Вскоре он переезжает в Ленинград и влюбляется в этот город. Работая в Ленконцерте, он создаёт свой оркестр. Не достигнув совершеннолетия, готовит сольную программу - авторский концерт, где исполняет только песни собственного сочинения (редкость по тем временам). Результат ошеломляющий - 350-400 концертов в год и все "живьём", с 17-тью музыкантами. Отдыхать было некогда, но и гонорар, слава Богу, был соответствующий. Квартира в центре города, катер, хоть и не новый, ну и, конечно, любовь сотен тысяч поклонников и поклонниц не только в Союзе, но и за рубежом. Песни: "Уличные фонари", "Осенний свет", "Песенка о капели" и многие другие в его исполнении звучали не только из всех окон, но ни одна танплощадка, ни один ресторан не могли обойтись без исполнения этих шлягеров. В кратчайший срок распродаётся более 50-ти миллионов его пластинок. Однако Жан чувствовал несвободу. В 1971 году он с одним чемоданом прилетел в Париж. Пел в кабаре "Распутин", "Московская звезда", правда, многие свои песни пришлось на время забыть, зато армянские, цыганские, русские народные составили большую часть репертуара. Быстро освоил французский, подружился с интересными людьми, нашёл работу, которая приносила радость и удовольствие, а главное, он чувствовал свободу, чего в СССР не было никогда. И эпитет "невыездной" не давал покоя артисту. За границей творческая судьба складывается довольно удачно. Он представляет Францию на 200-летии Америки в Вашингтоне. Заключает 5-летний контракт с "Империал Палас", одним из лучших казино Лас-Вегаса, по условиям которого должен петь 180 дней в году (кстати, Жан первым из советских артистов "прорвался" в Лас Вегас, и только после него Киркоров). Гастролирует по всему миру. После его отъезда в Советском Союзе было приказано о нём забыть. Все записи были уничтожены: размагничены и стёрты, хотя на политику там и намёка не было - все песни о любви. Ж. Татлян К счастью, сегодня он дарит нам возможность встречи с его старыми и новыми песнями. Дарит надежду, радость, любовь. В начале 90-х Жан неожиданно прилетает в Петербург, даёт подряд 7 аншлаговых выступлений в БКЗ, после чего опять исчезает, возвращается в Версаль. Тоска по Родине, по родным и близким, которых в Петербурге осталось очень много, повлияли на очередной приезд Татляна в Россию, в Ленинград. Упустив волну популярности "старых песен о главном", но ни капли об этом не пожалев, Жан приезжает уже в другой, но по-прежнему гостеприимный Петербург. Даёт всего один концерт всё в том же БКЗ "Октябрьский" 14 апреля 2000 года - Аншлаг! Татляна до сих пор помнят и любят (его появление вызвало достаточно сильный резонанс в прессе, несмотря на то, что большинство журналистов ещё и не родилось во время его бешеной популярности) - за время пребывания в России он успел поучаствовать во многих передачах центрального ТВ. Беседы с этим поистине талантливым человеком с непростой творческой судьбой приносят корреспондентам удовольствие.

A former professional golfer, Jones recorded four albums for Chart Records in that timespan, in addition to charting six times in the Top 40 on the Billboard country singles charts. His debut single was a No. 22-peaking cover of "Proud Mary," originally by Creedence Clearwater Revival, which served as the title track of his first album.

Jones' second album, Take a Letter Maria, produced his biggest hit in its No. 8 title track, a cover of the pop hit for R. B. Greaves. Later that year, he released Sugar in the Flowers, which produced singles in "Lead Me Not into Temptation" and its title track. Finishing off his single releases that year was a rendition of Neil Diamond's "Sweet Caroline," which Jones recorded on Take a Letter Maria. Jones later moved to Epic Records, where he charted three singles in 1973, including a No. 33 cover of Jim Croce's "Bad, Bad Leroy Brown". He recorded for Homa Records in the 1970s but did not have any chart success, and charted for the last time in 1986 with the No. 74 "Those Eyes" on the Air label. After retiring from the music business, Jones founded a club called Proud Mary in Shreveport, Louisiana. He died on June 16, 1996. Above per Wikipedia.

Originally known as "Los Reyes del Rock" but changed to "Los Rebeldes del Rock" a short time later. Original line-up: Antonio de la Villa Verdez Sánchez – Vocals (who left early on to become an original member of [a1819720]) Francisco "Abuelo" Domínguez - Piano Guillermo Américo Tena - Requinto guitar José María "Chema" Silva - Drums Waldo Tena - Guitar Marco Polo Tena - Bass Their jump to fame came in 1960 when [a2271933] joined the band becoming their 3rd lead vocalist in such a short time.

Link335Κώστας Μουντάκης Κώστας Μουντάκης GreeceΚώστας Μουντάκης Κώνσταντίνος Μουντάκης (1926-1991) a.k.a. Μουντόκωστας [Mountokostas] was born at Alfa, Mylopotamos, Crete, Greece in 10 February 1926 he was a Cretan traditional artist [Cretan Lyre, Singer, Composer, Lyricist] He popularized the traditional music of the island of Crete, primarily with the lyra, the bowed string instrument of Crete and most popular surviving form of the medieval Byzantine lyra. His parents came from the village Kallikratis in Sfakia, Crete. His older brother Nikistratos was playing the lira and so did Mitsos Kaffatos - one of the best musicians in Rethymno at that time - who was to become Kostas’ tutor. When the German military occupation of Crete started, Kostas Mountakis was 15 years old. In those days, he played his lira and sang at the village coffee shop, and later at wedding receptions. In 1952, Kostas Mountakis participated for the first time in an album recording when he accompanied Stelios Koutsourelis at the song “Arpaxsa kai Baildisa”. In 1954, he recorded his first personal album accompanied by the Koutsourelis brothers with the all time classics “De thelo stin kardia”, “O pramateutis”, “O argaleios”, “Milonades kai mazoxtres”, “Sto stadio pou m’efere”, “Rethemniane mou kantife”, “Harami sou”, Erotokritos”, “Kritikos Gamos”, “H mahi tis Kritis”, “O thanatos tou lirari”. These songs are a small sample of his music. Kostas Mountakis played an important and vital role to the popularization of the lira as well as to the formation of its teaching methods. His overall contribution to the musical tradition of Crete is very important. He died in 31 January 1991 "Να κάτεβώ εις την Αλφά, τον άγιασμένο τόπο - γέννησε το Μουντόκωστα, ξεθέρι των αθρώπω" Ο Κώστας Μουντάκης ήταν κρητικός λυράρης. Θεωρείται μαζί με το Νίκο Ξυλούρη και το Θανάση Σκορδαλό, ως ένας από τους πιο αντιπροσωπευτικούς λυράρηδες της Κρήτης. Γεννήθηκε στις 10 Φεβρουαρίου 1926 στο χωριό Αλφά της επαρχίας Μυλοποτάμου που υπάγεται σήμερα στο δήμο Γεροποτάμου. Η καταγωγή της οικογένειάς του ήταν από τον Καλλικράτη Σφακίων. Έμεινε ορφανός από πατέρα μόλις τρεις μήνες μετά τη γέννησή του. Τελείωσε το δημοτικό σχολείο το 1938, συνέχισε στο ημιγυμνάσιο του Πανόρμου, αλλά λόγω οικονομικών δυσκολιών της πολύτεκνης οικογένειας του αναγκάζεται να διακόψει τις σπουδές του. Η αγάπη του για τη λύρα φάνηκε από πολύ νωρίς. Την πρώτη του λύρα την απέκτησε το 1943, αφού έδωσε ένα αρνί και πέντε οκάδες τυρί. Για να βγάλει τα προς το ζειν δούλεψε μαζί με έναν πλανόδιο μικροπωλητή, από αυτή την εμπειρία του ο Μουντάκης αργότερα έγραψε ένα από τα σημαντικότερα τραγούδια του τον Πραματευτή. Εκείνη την εποχή το Ρέθυμνο ήταν το επίκεντρο της κρητικής μουσικής, όπου μεσουρανούσαν ο Ανδρέας Ροδινός, ο Μπαξεβάνης, ο Στέλιος Φουσταλιέρης, ο Αντώνης Καρεκλάς, ο Βασίλης Καλαϊτζάκης και πολλοί άλλοι λυράρηδες εκείνης της εποχής. Ο Κώστας Μουντάκης κατετάγη στη χωροφυλακή το 1948. Υπηρέτησε στα Χανιά, στα Σφακιά και στην Αθήνα. Την περίοδο από το 1950 μέχρι το 1952, είχε αποσπαστεί στο ιδιαίτερο γραφείο του Σοφοκλή Βενιζέλου. Αργότερα παραιτείται και αναγκάζεται να εργαστεί στο Εργοστάσιο Λιπασμάτων στη Δραπετσώνα για 16 ολόκληρα χρόνια. Παράλληλα προσπαθεί να προωθήσει την κρητική μουσική μέσω της ραδιοφωνίας που είχε τη μεγάλη δύναμη στην προβολή της παραδοσιακής μουσικής κάτω από την άγρυπνη επίβλεψη του Σίμωνα Καρά. Περνάει από την <<αυστηρή>> κριτική επιτροπή του Ε.Ι.Ρ. (Εθνικό Ίδρυμα Ραδιοφωνίας) και μαζί με τον Βυζιργιάννη στο λαούτο αρχίζουν εκπομπές στο πρόγραμμα του Σίμωνα Καρά[1], προβάλλοντάς την κρητική μουσική στο πανελλήνιο. Σε συνεργασία με τον Στέλιο Κουτσουρέλη, πραγματοποιούν το 1955 την πρώτη ηχογράφηση δίσκου 78 στροφών με τα τραγούδια «Ο Ζητιάνος» και η «Ρεθυμνιωτοπούλα». Μέσα στα επόμενα χρόνια ακολουθεί μια τεράστια πορεία δισκογραφικών εκδόσεων, με αποτέλεσμα να καθιερωθεί ως ο περισσότερο ηχογραφημένος λυράρης Κρητικής μουσικής. Δίσκοι και τραγούδια όπως: «Ένα ματσάκι γιασεμιά», «Αργαλειός», «Μυλωνάδες και μαζώχτρες», «Κρητικός γάμος», «Η Μάχη της Κρήτης- Κρητικά νακλιά», «Αναφορά στον Καζαντζάκη», είναι μόνο μερικά δείγματα της δουλειάς του. Η καταξίωση και η φήμη του Μουντάκη εξαπλώθηκε σε όλη την Κρήτη και στους ξενιτεμένους Κρητικούς και Έλληνες της διασποράς τους οποίους είχε επισκεφτεί πολλές φορές. Για πρώτη φορά πήγε στην Αμερική το 1960 και το 1971 στον Καναδά, την Αυστραλία την Νότιο Αφρική και άλλες χώρες με ελληνική ομογένεια. Από το 1975 τη χρονιά που η υγεία του περνάει μια κρίση, αναγκάζεται να διακόψει την επαγγελματική του δραστηριότητα και παίζει μόνο σε επιλεγμένα γλέντια και εκδηλώσεις. Μέσα σε αυτό το διάστημα θεωρεί ως επιτακτική ανάγκη την παιδεία, δηλαδή τη μάθηση και τη διδασκαλία της κρητικής λύρας στα κρητικόπουλα με την ίδρυση σχολών στις μεγαλύτερες πόλεις της Κρήτης. Επίσης συμπαραστέκεται στο Ινστιτούτο Μεσογειακών Σπουδών και γίνεται πολύτιμος συνεργάτης στα ερευνητικά προγράμματα εθνομουσικολογίας του Ινστιτούτου. Η πρώτη σχολή λύρας ιδρύεται στο Ηράκλειο στο «Ωδείο Απόλλων», το 1979, μετά στο Ρέθυμνο (1980), τα Χανιά (1981), στον Άγιο Νικόλαο Λασιθίου (1983) και τέλος ιδρύει το «Ελληνικό Ωδείο» στην Αθήνα το 1985. Ο Κώστας Μουντάκης παλιότερα είχε αρχίσει μαθήματα και στην «Παγκρήτιο Ένωση». Ο Κώστας Μουντάκης ήταν ένας αληθινός βάρδος, ένας γνήσιος εκφραστής της λεβεντιάς, της ομορφιάς, της λευτεριάς, και της δημοκρατικότητας του Κρητικού και της κρητικής ψυχής. Ο Κώστας Μουντάκης πέθανε στις 31 Ιανουαρίου 1991 βυθίζοντας στο πένθος ολόκληρη την Κρήτη.

In 1959, Worth had her first hit, called "Are You Willing, Willie," on Cherokee Records. The song peaked in the top 15 of the country music charts. In 1960, her song "That's My Kind of Love" went to the top 5, becoming her biggest hit. Jack Stapp signed the young singer to the Grand Ole Opry's Friday Night Frollic.

In 1963, Marion returned to the Country charts. That year, she recorded the song "Shake Me I Rattle (Squeeze Me I Cry)" which reached Country's Top 15 and crossed over to the Pop Music charts, reaching the Top 50. It was also played on Easy Listening stations, and receives some airplay as a Christmas song due to its theme of toys and giving. She followed up well with a cover version of "Crazy Arms," a hit for Ray Price. Her version reached the Country Top 20. That same year, Worth joined the Grand Ole Opry. The next year, 1964 started with a Top 40 hit called "You Took Him Off My Hands (Now Please Take Him Off My Mind)".

Link036Vicki Shepard Vicki Shepard United StatesVicki Shepard Victoria J. Shepard Vicki Shepard is one of America’s most talented performers. With her unique and gutsy powerhouse vocal she is one of those true divas of the 90’s who has stood the test of time - as popular now as she was when her debut releases “Somewhere”, “All I Ask Of You” and “Never In A Million Years” reached the US Top 10 and UK #1 in 1991 while "Love Has Changed My Mind," 'Let Me Take You Dancing," 'Hold On To My Love," "Bring On The Boys / Rofo's Theme" and a cover of "Disco Inferno" also topped the Top 5 of both the US & UK Club and Energy charts making Vicki Shepard one of the only dance artists in history to have Eight #1 or Top 10 clubs hits in a short Two year period. Vicki is an artist who really cuts it live! Constantly in demand for personal appearances the world over, Vicki may best be known for her sheer furor and raw energy poured into every performance. While extensively touring Europe, Asia, and The States, tour highlights found Vicki headlining such internationally renowned Mega-venues as Nottingham’s “MGM”, London’s “Hippodrome”, “Heaven”, “Limelight” and “The Palace.” Stateside, Vicki headlined America’s largest 3 day outdoor event “Hotlanta” and America’s largest Street & Pride Fairs, San Francisco’s “The Folsom Street Fair” and 1996 SF Pride Festival which annually attracts audiences of 500,000. Vicki’s reputation as a live performer is cast in stone. Her empowering attitude and commanding stage presence cannot be ignored. She brings a passion and warmth to each and every performance that makes Vicki Shepard a true Mega talent! As the featured vocalist for one of Britain’s wickedest and most sought after mid 90’s production teams The Sleaze Sisters (also known as WAND & The Candy Girls), Vicki and the Sleaze Sisters scored two #1 hits in 1995 & 1996 with “Let’s Whip It Up” and “Sex”, a Sylvester’s cover, which included impressive remixes by teams Red Jerry, Way Out West, and Wand. Later that year hit US dance team The Mighty Dub Kats also landed a Billboard Top Ten and UK #1 with “Ghetto Girl”, a track that heavily sampled Vicki’s “Let’s Whip It Up”. This success lead to a pairing of Shepard and The Ministry Of Sound for the single “Love Has Changed My Mind” which reached the US Top 40 on Ichiban Records and #2 throughout much Europe. In September ‘99, Redzone Records (Producer team Keith Haarmeyer and Matt Consola) released Vicki Shepard’s “All I Ask Of You” 2000, the Y2K remake of her #1 chart topping 1991 dance single of the Phantom Of The Opera classic. With an exciting double 12” vinyl remix package featuring top remix teams such as Haarmeyer, England’s Majic and Germany’s Premiere Circuit & Trance team Cyrus & The Joker (of Sash! “Mysterious Times” and Dario G “Sunmachine” fame), the remix package also includes a re-mastered version of Vicki’s original 1991 version just for her fans.In 2002, Redzone Records released The Essential Vicki Shepard, a 12 track Greatest Hits Remixes collection that featured nine of Shepard’s #1 or Top 10 Billboard and World Wide #1 club hits, as well as two remixes of a new Haarmeyer penned single, “I Got A Feeling,” and a 2002 updated remix of “Never In A Million Years” by original producer and now Almighty Records remixer Mike “Majic” Coppick. An instant club favorite, “I Got A Feelin’” shot to the Billboard Top 10 and Shepard toured extensively. But like so many smaller labels, Redzone Records was forced to close their doors due to Peer-to Peer-File Sharing. But in 2007, Redzone Records, intent on relaunching the label in Digital Form only, released a very limited set up updated 2007 remixes of ‘I Got A Feelin’” with new mixes by Tony Moran, Ralphi Rosario and the team of Blaine & Barona. The Redzone team split later that year to pursue separate projects. In 2010, Shepard signed on to the roster of Swishcraft Music, a new label helmed by longtime friend and producer Matt Consola. Debuting in early 2011, Swishcraft dedicated itself to releasing singles that “brings the fun vocals and melodies back to an industry that’s gone very dark,” says Consola. Shepard and Consola are collaborated on both a new dance single as well as a just released holiday single, a jazz version of the Christmas standard, “What Child is This?” produced and arranged by Matt Consola and Leo Frappier. Like all of Shepard’s singles, “What Child is This?” is available world wide on Itunes, Amazon and many other services. Shepard debuted the single at the three date, 18th annual Songs of The Season shows at the Razz Room in San Francisco November 29th – December 1st. Hosted by founder Donna Sachet, Songs of the Season features many contemporary dance and jazz artists performing Holiday classics, and benefiting local San Francisco charity AEF.org. The jazz holiday cover of What Child Is This? which shot into the top 10 of the iTunes Holiday charts. Later in 2012, Shepard went back into the studio to flush out the Cool Yule mini album of Holiday hits including "Baby, It's Cold Outside" ft Robby Young, "Santa's Blues," "Boogie Woogie Santa Claus," and updated version of "What Child is This?" and title track "Cool Yule." In the summer of 2014, Swishcraft Music released a new original club single "When Love Comes Calling" with a fantastic array of remixes by top remixers from around the globe. A track that had been kicking around in demo format since 1999, 'When Love Comes Calling" was finally recorded and released, having only ever being performed live once. But the new single is just one step in the fiery club comeback for Shepard. On October 21st, 2014 an EP called Vicki Shepard - Classic Hits Revisited hits stores. Featuring 13 updated remixes of a handful of her biggest club hits, this EP will feature remixes of "Somewhere" by Paul Goodyear, "Sex" by Liam Keegan, "All I Ask of You" and "Never In A Million Years" updated by Cristian Poow, and "I Got A Feelin' " updated by the team of Jose Spinnin' Cortes & Chris Stutz, as well as Liam Keegan, and the team of Big Kid & Brian Cua. All updated classics were updated from the original session vocals. But this all leads up to the grand release of Vicki Shepard - The Remix Anthology (#1's, Club remixes and more). Unlike the previous Redzone Records era greatest hits album, The Essential Vicki Shepard that was limited by a 80 minute CD format, Vicki Shepard - The Remix Anthology is an impressive Thirty-Six track digital release or 4 CD set of every official single release, labeled and offered in chronological order, kicking off with December 1989's "Somewhere" all the way through 2014 'When Love Comes Calling." Each classic 12" release has been digitally remastered and in most cases one or even two additionally popular or extremely rare club remixes, many only ever available on 12" vinyl, are also included as bonus offering. And as the compilation visits the current 2000's, you're also presented with a handful of Vicki's most popular holiday and jazz & blues singles, including Vicki's most requested live track, "Long John Blues (Dr. Long John). The only new production on the Anthology is track #1, the Paul Goodyear produced "Sunrise at The Saint Mix" of "Somewhere." As Vicki's debut at The Saint in New York was also the clubs last live performance before the club was retired, it seemed only fitting to kick off with a Saint inspired mix of 'Somewhere' for the club that kick-off Shepard's club career. The Anthology ends with a rare 1999 demo that became the 2014 club hit, "When Love Comes Calling." For any Vicki Shepard fan, this is the definitive collection.

Link134Marv Herzog Marv Herzog Marv Herzog Marv Herzog was born August 9, 1932 in Frankenmuth, Michigan. Music played an important role in the Herzog family – his parents played instruments and taught their children to sing. They cherished the German songs their ancestors brought to America when they emigrated but they also enjoyed country music performed at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, Tennessee. When Frankie Yankovic began playing his accordion and touring the country performing with his polka band, polka music was featured on a radio show in Flint, Michigan. Marv’s interest in the accordion grew and when he was twelve, a neighbor brought him one and showed him where the C, G, and F chords were on the left hand. Marv practiced for an hour everyday. He learned songs by remembering how they sounded, then practiced them until they were committed to memory. He could play virtually any song in any key just by listening to them and did this with no music lessons. From these early beginnings came a unique style of music Marv Herzog perfected and thousands of people across the nation enjoyed. He formed his first band at the age of 14 and on New Year’s Eve in 1946, was hired by a club for their party. In 1963, he purchased his first Cordovox, an organ/accordion instrument that propelled him to greater musical success. He began recording albums and as his popularity grew, he booked festivals and dances in other states, and sponsored tours to Germany where his band also performed. In 1979, he was inducted into the International Polka Association Hall of Fame. In 1996, he celebrated 50 years in music with a program recorded on a DVD. In 2002, at the age of 70, he passed away after an 18 month battle with pancreatic cancer. He is buried in the St Lorenz Lutheran Church Cemetery in Frankenmuth. Bio from marvherzog.com

Perryman and his group of musicians, at that time not yet named, gathered in Columbia's Nashville studio at 2:30 in the afternoon on May 31, 1961, and by 6:30 had recorded eight new songs, including a remake of Piano Red's 1950 hit "The Wrong Yo-Yo" [RCA Victor 50-0106]. They also recorded an original song which the Beatles would make very famous a few years later — "Mister Moonlight" — and another novelty song, "Doctor Feel-Good," about a "doctor of love" who only liked women who weighed over 400 lbs. When the latter song was released on January 5, 1962, the group became known as Dr. Feelgood & the Interns. Although "Dr. Feel-Good" [Okeh 7144] and second followup "Right String But the Wrong Yo-Yo" [Okeh 7156] both charted, and a subsequent album was issued, we have been left all these years with the question, "Who were the Interns?" We knew that "Dr. Feelgood" was Willie Perryman, who played piano on the session, but there was no information on the album or anywhere else, it seemed, to identify the backing group. One well-known reference source even claims Willie Perryman was the whole group! But after digging up the recording session sheet from the Sony Archives, I can now say with assurance that the others were Roy Lee Johnson, Jr. (guitar), Howard Hobbs (bass), Bobby Lee Tuggle (drums), Curtis Smith (guitar), and Beverly Watkins (guitar). - Mike Callahan (Both Sides Now Publications)

Link034Gene Rondo Gene Rondo Gene Rondo Winston Lara Winston Lara (28 May 1943 – 12 June 1994), better known by his stage name Gene Rondo, was a Jamaican reggae singer. After first recording as part of the duo Gene & Roy in Jamaica, he relocated to London where he continued to record until the 1980s, including several album releases in the 1970s, both solo and as a member of The Undivided. He was sometimes credited as Gene Laro or Winston Laro. Born in Greenwich Farm, Kingston, Jamaica in 1943, Rondo entered the music business in the late 1950s, successfully competing in the Vere Johns Opportunity Hour talent content with his partner Satch. He recorded a single in Jamaica as part of the duo Gene & Roy ("Little Queenie"/"Squeeze Me"), before relocating to London in 1962, where he studied as a classical singer in Hammersmith. In 1965 he formed the band Abashack, with whom he toured the UK, and went on to record singles on the Giant and Jolly labels of Stamford Hill-based R&B Records in 1968. He then recorded for Dandy Livingstone's Trojan Records sub-label Downtown, releasing several singles in 1969 and 1970. In 1970 he recorded his debut album, On My Way, for Trojan. He went on to record for Magnet Records, including contributing four tracks to the Reggae Desire album in 1974. In 1972 he formed the pop-reggae band The Undivided (which later evolved into Undivided Roots), who released an album (Listen to the World) for Decca. He also recorded as a solo reggae vocalist for several UK-based producers including Clement Bushay, Dennis Harris (for whom he recorded duets with T.T. Ross), and Count Shelly. Rondo accompanied Susan Cadogan for her performance of "Hurt So Good" on Top of the Pops. In the mid-1970s, Rondo adopted the Rastafari faith, and recorded more roots-oriented tracks such as "A Land Far Away" and "Give All the Parise to Jah". Rondo co-produced (with Bunny Lee) Delroy Wilson's Nice Times album in 1983 and contributed backing vocals to Alton Ellis's 25th Silver Jubilee album in 1984. He continued to record into the 1980s, and also set up the Roots Pool community centre and studio in North London. He was a major contributor to the British Reggae Artists Famine Appeal (BRAFA) and the charity single "Let's Make Africa Green Again", which raised funds for the Save the Children Fund. He continued to concentrate on community work in the latter half of the 1980s and early 1990s. Rondo died from cancer in St Josephs Hospice, Hackney in June 1994. A memorial concert was held featuring artists such as Alton Ellis, Prince Lincoln, Justin Hinds, Dennis Alcapone, Owen Gray, and Carroll Thompson.

The name was inspired by all the time they hanged out on La Cueva. The single [b]La Leyenda de Xanadu[/b] was released. The B side [i]Sutilmente, a Susana[/i] was originally composed by [a=Tanguito] when he was 16, making it the first Spanish rock song ever composed. The single was a failure, selling less than 650 copies. The group was at the point of disbanding when they remembered they had a second single arranged for the deal. CBS puts them in contact with [a=Francis Smith], a new producer, and they record [b]Eloise[/b]. The B-side, written by Smith, was called [i]Vuelvo a Náufragar[/i]. Quique Villanueva does not appear on the single, vocals being performed by Alejandro Arzoumanian because Francis didn't like his voice. When it hit the radio, the single sold more than 60000 copies and kick-started the band into popularity. On 1969, for their first LP, [b]Otra Vez en la Via[/b], Quique suffers a car crash has to temporally leave the band. Francis puts [a=Pajarito Zaguri] on his place, however he and the band didn't agree on many aspect and he left the group as soon as Quique was recovered.

Link033Jimmy Velvet Jimmy Velvet United StatesJimmy Velvet Jimmie Tennant Tennant became legally known as "Jimmy Velvet" in 1965, though he began using the name professionally as late as early 1963. He had earlier recorded under his real name, though there is one record from 1959 on the AMP label that is a different "Jimmie Tennant". Velvet would sometimes be confused with an artist with a similar name from Texas whom he used to promote, "Jimmy Velvit", who's real name is Jimmy Mullins. The confusion became critical when Tennant made his first recordings that were to use Jimmy Velvet in April, 1963. He happened to release the same two songs that had been issued by Mullins on CUB Records a year earlier, "(You're Mine And) We Belong Together"/ "I'm Gonna Try (To Forget The One I Love)". Tennant intended the label and his last name to be as "Velvet", but Mullins' CUB record was used as an informational reference, and the name was spelled as "Velvit" instead in error. Only 1,000 copies were made, in both stock and promotional label formats, and most were (to be) destroyed. Tennant later had copies made on a corrected "VELVET" label in July, 1963, but his last name was still as "Velvit". Both sides eventually found a home on Cortland Records' WITCH subsidiary in August, but they were soon withdrawn once Jimmy made a deal with Felton Jarvis in Nashville and signed with ABC-Paramount Records in September, 1963. In November, ABC released "We Belong Together", but backed it with "The History Of Love", another song from the April session. Jimmy had a hand in writing "The History Of Love", while it was Mullins who had written "I'm Gonna Try". Down the road, Mullins would add more confusion to the mix by using "Velvet" as his last name on at least four records on three different labels, on BLUE Records, BELL Records, and BI Records. There was also an unrelated "James Velvet" who recorded for CUB Records, unrelated even to Mullins near the time that he was with the label.

Link033Stu Stevens Stu Stevens Stu Stevens Wilfrid Pierce b, 25 September c.1937, Annesley Woodhouse, Kirkby-In-Ashfield, Nottinghamshire, England. Pierce drove tractors on the farm at the age of eight, but his ambition to be a farmer was never fully realized. When he was about 13 years old, his father, a miner, died, and he left school to work in the mines. His first singing experience came after his brother entered him in a local talent show around 1965. He won, and his deep, powerful voice found him a regular paid singing spot at the club. He bought himself a guitar (and later learned piano) and began to put together a repertoire of songs. In the late 60s, as Stuart Stevens, he made his first recordings for EMI Records, including the release of a single (‘Soft Is The Night’/‘Tender Hearted’). He also appeared on the Lonnie Donegan television show. In March 1970, he was booked to entertain at a reception for the American country stars of the Wembley Festival. Performing as Willard Pierce, he created such an impression that it led to him appearing at the Festival itself the following day - seemingly the first British artist to do so. He made a noteworthy appearance onOpportunity Knocks in 1972 (unfortunately falling foul of the ‘never work with children or animals’ adage, losing by three votes to a child drummer). He recorded for the Youngblood label in 1972, with the subsequent album, Stories In Song, selling some 12, 000 copies. In 1973, he performed at a disc jockey convention in Nashville, subsequently appearing at many major venues, including the Grand Ole Opry and on network television. He was signed by Cliffie Stone to the US Granite label in 1974, who released his Youngblood album in the USA and in Europe. His recording of ‘My Woman My Woman My Wife’ became popular on both sides of the Atlantic, even drawing praise from the song’s writer, Marty Robbins. Further trips to the USA followed until, sadly for him, both Granite and Youngblood ceased record production, leaving him without a label in either country.

He first sang with his father as a child and swapped his bicycle for a guitar at 15. He started a group with two other boys and influenced by the western swing music of bands such as Bob Wills, he kept adding instruments until, by the time he was 19, he had a 12-piece band, the Western Rhythm Boys, playing nightclubs around Cincinnati, Dayton, Hamilton, Detroit and even into Canada. For a time his music varied to R&B but he soon returned to a more country format. He had begun writing songs as a boy and in 1958 he joined King Records. In 1959, as Ray Starr, he recorded his self-penned ‘Three Hearts In A Tangle’ but considered the recording so bad that he asked King owner Sydney Nathan to withdraw it. Nathan did but offered him a job with the label and after serving in several menial capacities, he became an A&R man and began producing records.

Link032Chow Hsuan Chow Hsuan Chow Hsuan Zhou Xuan (August 1, 1918 – September 22, 1957), also romanized as Chow Hsuan, was an iconic Chinese singer and film actress. By the 1940s, she had become one of China's seven great singing stars. She was the best known of the seven, nicknamed the "Golden Voice", and had a concurrent movie career until 1953. She recorded more than 200 songs and appeared in over 40 films in her career. Zhou was born Su Pu (蘇璞), but was separated from her natural parents at a young age and raised by adoptive parents. She spent her entire life searching for her biological parents but her parentage was never established until after her death. According to later family research, a relative who was an opium addict took her at the age of 3 to another city and sold her to a family named Wang, who named her Wang Xiaohong. She was later adopted by a family named Zhou, changing her name to Zhou Xiaohong. At the age of 13, she took Zhou Xuan as her stage name, 'Xuan' (璇) meaning beautiful jade in Chinese. In 1932, Zhou began acting as a member of Li Jinhui's Bright Moon Song and Dance Troupe. When she was fourteen, she won second prize in a singing contest in Shanghai and was given the nickname "Golden Voice" (金嗓子) for her effortless high-pitched melodies. Zhou began her film career in 1935, and she achieved stardom in 1937 when director Yuan Muzhi cast her as one of the leads as a singing girl in Street Angel. Zhou rapidly became the most famous and marketable popular singer in the gramophone era up to her death, singing many famous tunes from her own movies. Between 1946 and 1950, she often went to Hong Kong to make films such as "All-Consuming Love" (長相思), "Hua wai liu ying" (花外流鶯), "Qinggong mishi" (清宮秘史), and "Rainbow Song" (彩虹曲). After introducing "Shanghai Nights" (夜上海) in 1949, Zhou returned to Shanghai. She spent the next few years in and out of mental institutions owing to frequent breakdowns. Through the years, Zhou led a complicated and unhappy life marked by her failed marriages, illegitimate children, and suicide attempts. Having made a total of 43 movies, her favourite film was always Street Angel. This contained two theme songs: "Four Seasons Song" (四季歌) and "The Wandering Songstress", which enjoyed long-lasting popularity. Other well-known songs by Zhou Xuan include "When Will You Return?", "Shanghai Nights" (title song from the film of the same name), "Yellow Leaves Dancing in Autumn Wind" (黃葉舞秋風), "Forever Smile" (永遠的微笑), "Hundred Flower Song" (百花歌), "Advice" (叮嚀), "Where Can the Soul Mate be Found" (知音何處尋), and "Picking Betal Nuts" (採檳榔). In 1957 she died in Shanghai in a mental asylum at the age of 39 during the Anti-Rightist Movement. A possible cause of death may be encephalitis following a nervous breakdown.

Formed in 1965 while the British Invasion had been in full force, and so naming the group "The Penny Farthings" didn't sound like such a bad idea. It was changed to "Copperpenny" (or "Copper Penny" as shown on many of their singles), the following year. The new designation was taken from the title of the Verve B-side of "If I Call You By Some Name," a 1966 release by The Paupers. The Paupers switched to Columbia Records in 1968 for an album and a couple of singles, with Copperpenny now as label-mates. Rich Wamil - keyboards and lead vocals; Kenny Hollis - lead vocals; Vern (Laverne) McDonald - lead guitar; Bert Hamer - drums and percussion; Paul Reibling - bass, - replaced by ex-Rain member, Ron Hiller (born July 7, 1953).

[b]This band was later better known as 'Woody Herman & The First Herd'[/b]. After the recording ban ended the Swing era in late 1944, and after he was driven to change his band due to the war years, [a239399] finally created an ensemble, which was oriented towards the arising Bebop style. As a result, around August 1944, the soloists of [a284746] got called Woody Herman's (first) herd. This ensemble quickly was heaped praise by contemporary critics and went to be one of the most famous and successful big bands in the post war era. This was not only caused by artist replacements, but also with a strict change of arrangements. The most noticeable element of this stage of the band was a five-person trumpet ensemble, called "The Trumpet Section". The name itself is based on the name, [a1720879] used for the Herman orchestra in the early 1940's. On the maximum of success, [a239399] dissolved the band in December 1946 due to personal and financial reasons.

Link032Charline Arthur Charline Arthur Charline Arthur Country, honky tonk, rock n' roll singer and songwriter born September 1929, died November 27, 1987. For most of her life, Charline Arthur was viewed as a renegade. A Texas-born musician, she was a hard-living, feisty and opinionated woman - musically and physically aggressive onstage and off. She wore men's slacks and cowboy shirts. She leapt from stage amplifiers. She sang while lying down. In 1950 she landed a daily radio job at KERB in Kermit, Texas as both a DJ and singer. Music entrepreneur Colonel Tom Parker heard her and brought her to the attention of RCA Records in 1952. Because of her singles "Welcome to the Club," "Honey Bun" and "Burn That Candle," she is often cited as a pioneering rockabilly female. RCA dropped her in 1956, and, because of her reputation for being controversial and difficult, no other major record label took her in. In 1969 she revived her career, but arthritis in her hands forced her to retire. She died in her sleep at age 58 in 1987, never fully realizing her place in music history.

His second release, "Fig Root" was produced by Sonia Pottinger for her High Note label. The song became a success and lead to George Davy recording for the producer Hartnell Henry in a session where Bingy Bunny and Sowell Radics featured, both of who would form a part of the Roots Radics. Some of his more notable singles were "Read The Bible" which was followed by "Vision", "Stop Push the Fire" and a version of Dennis Walks hit "Drifter". He then met Winston "Niney" Holness for whom he recorded "Trodding". This was for Reggae George a major hit that appeared in the reggae charts and achieved international acclaim. "Three Wicked Men" followed for Bob Marley's offshoot label to Tuff Gong, the label 56 Hope Road. Rita Marley engineered the recording with assistance by Sylvan Morris. Trojan records were by now very interested in releasing a record for Reggae George. Mix Up was the resulting album. The album was produced by Prince Far I and musicians included on the set were Jah Lloyd, Sowell Radics, Errol Holt and Professor Larry. The album was an artistic success but unfortunately not a big seller. In 1983 his Tuff Gong recordings surfaced on Dennis Brown's label Yvonne's Special in the UK, while Greensleeves Records released "Walla Walla" and the more popular "You'll Never Know"/"We Still Survive". In the pipeline was also a follow up to the album "Mix Up", but with the murder of Prince Far I the project was abandoned. In the mid 80's Reggae George teamed up once again with his old time friend Neville Beckford, by the time known as the deejay and producer Jah Woosh.
