News (incl. some Lefty)

15 May

Rose Simpson, member of The Incredible String Band, was recently  interviewed for a forthcoming documentary on the Sound Techniques Studio – with a print from our “55 Covers” calendar strategically placed by her side. Fame!

And now for something slightly different – here’s a quote from the back of the forthcoming Lefty Frizzell box:

“…This 20-CD set includes every 78, 45, and LP track from Lefty’s entire career. Plus every unissued session recording. Plus over one hundred non-session recordings. Newly discovered acetates and “live” recordings have been added to Bear Family’s 1992 edition and previously issued non-session recordings have been painstakingly restored. That’s 361 tracks, including David Frizzell’s audio biography that was not on our original LP box, and many that weren’t on the first CD box!

Lefty’s family and others provided a trove of previously unseen photos and ephemera. Charles Wolfe’s original classic text has been revised and expanded by Lefty’s biographer, Daniel Cooper, and Texas music expert, Kevin Coffey. It is now the definitive account of an incendiary career that ended in 1975 when Lefty was just forty-seven years old.  The book is now a 264-page hardcover and greatly expanded in every way –  the last word on one of country music’s truly foundational artists.”

Several projects we’ve been working on are at the manufacturing stage now and will be available soon.

From Bear Family Records there’s a (typically massive) box set with 20 CDs about the Louisiana Hayride. The first samples arrived earlier this week:

And here’s a preview of the 224-page book!

Just out on Bear Family is the magnificent Woody Guthrie set – which was presented at a show in Berlin recently, co-hosted by Bear Family, Woody Guthrie Publications and the Committee to Combat Huntington’s Disease.

Later this year Ruf Records will release the long-awaited Luther Allison box (two boxes, actually: it comes as a CD set and a 180g vinyl LP set, both including a hardcover book and four DVDs with live recordings). This will include 7 original albums, newly remastered by Pauler Acoustics – several of these titles haven’t been available on CD and/or vinyl previously. Also, in the vinyl box three of these titles come as gatefold double-LPs. The hardcover book features liner notes by Art Tipaldi, a complete Luther Allison discography, memories and dedications from Luther’s friends and fellow musicians, and lots of pictures and memorabilia from the Luther Allison archives. Here are some sample pages:
