Roy Brooks Understanding [RSD21] This is an exclusive release for Record Store Day 2021 - Drop 2. Available from us on Saturday 17th July from 6:00pm. Click notify me above to be kept up to date. Understanding is a previously unreleased recording of drummer Roy Brooks captured live by the Left Bank Jazz Society at The Famous Ballroom in Baltimore, MD on November 1, 1970. Featuring a stellar band with trumpeter Woody Shaw, saxophonist Carlos Garnett, pianist Harold Mabern and bassist Cecil McBee, Understanding was recorded 5 months after the classic live album The Free Slave (also recorded by the Left Bank Jazz Society). This recording features a full performance by great musicians at their peak, providing a “you are there” experience of the excitement of great music and an appreciative crowd. Mastered from the original tape reels by Kevin Gray, the limited-edition 180-gram 3LP set includes an extensive booklet with rare photos, plus interviews with Carlos Garnett and Cecil McBee. Award winning arts journalist and critic Mark Stryker contributes the main essay as well as remembrances by American journalist, educator, author, activist and friend of Roy Brooks, Herb Boyd, alto saxophone legend Charles McPherson who grew up with Roy Brooks, Louis Hayes who got Roy the gig with Horace Silver and more. This project came about as a desire by Reel to Real Recordings to make a positive contribution to Black Lives Matter. Understanding is our celebration of the talent, courage and spirit of the Black musicians who created a timeless and universal art, with the recognition that the injustices of 50 years ago are still with us. All proceeds from album sales will go directly to The Detroit Sound Conservancy. Understanding is produced with the cooperation of Cecil McBee and Carlos Garnett and the estates of Roy Brooks, Harold Mabern and Woody Shaw. Wienerworld LP Back in Stock!
The Flirtations Nothing But A Heartache' b/w 'Need Your Loving' [RSD21] This is an exclusive release for Record Store Day 2021 - Drop 2. Available from us on Saturday 17th July from 6:00pm. Click notify me above to be kept up to date. The Flirtations were South Carolina trio Lestine Johnson with sisters Ernestine and Shirley Pearce. They originally recorded for the Old Town label as The Gypsies but despite a change of name and several changes of label success eluded them. After winning a local talent contest in 1968 they packed their bags and headed for England, where they supported Tom Jones and signed to Deram. ‘Nothing But A Heartache’ was their second release for the label and while it failed to chart in the UK it reached No. 34 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1969. The wonderful ‘Need Your Loving’ would have remained an album track but requests from Northern Soul clubs saw it finally released as a single in 1972. Until now original UK copies of that original single have been extremely hard to come by and have been in very high demand. Both sides were written by the Deram ‘in house’ team of Wayne Bickerton and Tony Waddington, who would have considerable chart success in the mid ‘70s with The Rubettes, for whom they wrote the No. 1 hit ‘Sugar Baby Love’.
