Ask Mr. Music by Jerry Osborne

FOR THE WEEK OF AUGUST 25, 2014


DEAR JERRY: You have been quite successful at digging up the details on records from the past, so I'm hoping you can accomplish something on my behalf. 

Just before the British Invasion turned everything upside down, one of the big fads was folk music. Among the great folk hits in 1963 was "Hootenanny," by the Glencoves. 

Their next record, though not quite as popular as "Hootenanny," had something to do with Ball Mountain. Whether that is part of the title or not I don't know. 

If it helps to identify it, I am almost positive it made the charts here in Lansing. 
—Maggie O'Grady, East Lansing, Mich.


DEAR MAGGIE: Strictly from what one would hear on the record, the location in question could easily be construed as Ball Mountain, but it really is Bald Mountain. The audible difference is very subtle.

The exact title is "Devil's Waitin' (On Bald Mountain)" (Select 727).

Your recollection of this folk tune being a regional hit is accurate. In December 1963, "Devil's Waitin' (On Bald Mountain)" was among Lansing's Top 30, according to the WMRT Silver Dollar Survey.

This record was actually the Glencoves' third, following "Hootenanny" (Select 724) and "Don't Knock" (Select 726).

All three came out in 1963, and they added one more in early '64, "Keep Away from My Gal" (Select 729).
The four Glencoves were: Don Connors (lead vocals and banjo); Brian Bolger (vocals and guitar); Bill Byrne (vocals and guitars), and John Cadley (vocals).

In just 1963, I know of over 50 individual releases with "Hootenanny" in their titles.


DEAR JERRY: The rock and roll recording featured in the current TV ads for Southern Comfort liqueurs has me mystified. 

I know I have never heard it before, so if it was ever a hit record then it's one I somehow missed. 

It sounds as much like what the Stray Cats were doing in the 1980s as it does something Eddie Cochran would have done in the '50s. 

It's not easy to understand the lyrics, but one line I did catch is "don't hesitate, I can't wait." 

All I need to know is who, what, and when? 
—Conrad Gessler, Kodiak, Alaska 


DEAR CONRAD: In the order asked, the singer is Jerry Lott but he was billed as The Phantom. His song is "Love Me," and it was recorded in 1958 but didn't come out until Feb. 1960 (Dot 16056).

Surprisingly, Dot even issued Lott's single with a picture sleeve, definitely uncommon for the first record by an unknown artist.

To put this in perspective, Dot's biggest star by far was Pat Boone. His first 10 singles were all big hits, including six million-sellers, yet not until his 11th single, "Love Letters in the Sand," did they splurge and produce a custom record sleeve for their No. 1 cash cow.

In the Phantom's case, however, his first record would also be his last.

How, 54 years later, the makers of Southern Comfort came up with this obscure piece of fuel-injected rock and roll is in itself a mystery.

Though revered by R&R and rockabilly collectors, "Love Me" never appeared on anyone's chart at the time, and didn't really become a hot item in the record collecting world until the mid-1970s.

The Phantom only rated two stars, indicating "moderate sales potential," from Billboard in their Feb. 29, 1960 Pop Record Reviews. They opined "A wild vocal that attempts to outdo Presley at his wildest." "Love Me," featuring the kind of reverberation reminiscent of 1950s recordings made in Memphis at the Sun Studio, with the original photo sleeve can now fetch $600 to $800.


IZ ZAT SO? Couldn't help being amused by the unidentified Billboard reviewer of "Love Me," who made this erroneous and misleading comment about the custom picture cover: "Sleeve shows the Phantom with a blindfold over his eyes."

As the word implies, a blindfold does indeed cover the eyes; however, what the Phantom is wearing in that photo is a mask — pretty much the opposite of a blindfold.

His black mask, nearly identical to those worn by the Lone Ranger, covers most of the facial features but has slits that allow the eyes to do their job.

Imagine how much less effective the Lone Ranger would have been, especially when riding and shooting, while wearing a blindfold.

Vinyl Record News & Music Notes


this week's bestselling pre-order vinyl records from our friends at SoundStageDirect

LYFE (Pre-Order) by Glass Ghost

Since the release of their debut album Idol Omen in 2009, Glass Ghost's founding members Eliot Krimsky and Michael Johnson have kept busy. In addition to playing dozens of shows, including a tour with White Rabbits, Johnson joined Dirty Projectors as their new drummer, Krimsky has been collaborating with Here We Go Magic on keys, and the duo welcomed two new members to the group, Tyler Wood on keyboards and percussion, and Aerial East on vocals. Like their debut, LYFE was produced by Tyler Wood, who also produced Joan As Policewoman’s 2014 album The Classic. For the LYFE recording sessions, the group recruited many of their friends to contribute, including Joan Wasser of Joan As Policewoman, Nat Baldwin of Dirty Projectors, and Christopher Tignor of Slow Six and Wires Under Tension. Pushing their songs to new levels by working with Brooklyn's musical elite is nothing new for Glass Ghost. They worked with more than a dozen of their friends from Brooklyn's music community, including Sharon Van Etten (who in 2011 noted “Eliot Krimsky is one of my favorite writers.”), Here We Go Magic's Luke Temple, and Matt Iwanusa of Caveman, for their debut which was described by the New Yorker as “elegant compositions of frosted indie pop,” and by Time Out New York as “weird and mournful yet highly rhythmic."

On their new album LYFE, Krimsky (who's currently working on his M.A. in Media Studies at The New School, where he’s exploring the convergence of technological mediation, identity and music) turns his observations of the absurd and mundane into metaphors about living in a world where every detail about your life is harvested, quantified, and used by marketing companies to manipulate your behavior. Rather than sounding didactic or overly intellectual, the songs provide windows into the band's internal world, as Krimsky's tender falsetto glides over the icy landscapes of synths, strings, woodwinds, and regal horns. As the product of Krimsky, Johnson, and Wood's mutual trust, vision, and relentless attention to every detail, LYFE masterfully blends airy, melancholy, and chilly atmospherics with Glass Ghost's irresistible bottom-heavy grooves and hooky pop sensibilities.

The Negatives (Pre-Order) by Cruel Hand

Spawned in the lethargic backwoods of the pine tree state, Portland, Maine’s Cruel Hand play an eclectic blend of styles that embodies anything but the serenity of their surroundings. Formed in 2006, Cruel Hand’s sound is equal parts New York hardcore and west coast thrash, all with a twist of their own. With 8 years of heavy touring and three LPs under their belt, the new decade will see Cruel Hand continue to mature and live up to their hard earned road reputation.

This Is The Computers (Pre-Order) by Computers

From Exeter's very own tight-knit and fertile punk scene, The Computers release This Is The Computers, their debut full-length album!

 Recorded in four short days in the Californian home of John Speedo Reis. It was recorded live, to tape. That means no overdubs. No computers were involved (irony). There were no tweaks, corrections or auto-tuning this is the real deal, baby. Warts and all, as Lemmy would say.

Boards of Canada's 'Music Has The Right To Children' Being Reissued On Vinyl

‘Music Has the Right To Children’ arrived in 1998 as a joint release from Warp and the burgeoning Skam imprint, and proved a seminal release which helped define Warp’s place in electronic music’s hall of fame, and gained the introspective, mysterious sounds of duo Boards of Canada a powerful cult following.

The album created a strange influence in its singular combination of hip-hop rhythms and more nostalgic elements drawn from a mid- 20th century electronic culture that was distinctly British. ‘One Very Important Thought’ resurrected the voice of an automated documentary narrator to remind one of the prevalence of censorship in contemporary culture over distant meandering synths in a way that was bizarrely nostalgic yet of no time at all, while ‘Smokes Quantity’ reigns the same archive voices onto chugging beats to hallucinatory effect.

It is, however, cuts like ‘Roygbiv’ and ‘Pete Standing Alone’ which remain the reason why the album remains a cornerstone for countless musicians today, where naïve synth lines and crunching hip-hop beats manage to induce the listener to a state at once pastoral and urban, recalling the past while avoiding mere replication of it. ‘Music Has the Right To Children’ offers as rich and mind-boggling a listen now as when it was released a decade and a half previously, and one cannot comprehend the landscape of contemporary electronic culture without it.

Sinoia Caves -'Beyond The Black Rainbow' OST' Available On Clear Vinyl

Jagjaguwar and Death Waltz Recording Company are excited to announce that they are coreleasing the soundtrack to Panos Cosmatos’ Beyond The Black Rainbow on 9/2. This supposed “lost film” from the 1980s is inspired by obscure scifi movies and classic dystopian fiction. Created by Sinoia Caves, the ongoing project of Jeremy Schmidt a disciple of longform cosmic synthesizer soundscape, and member of Canadian psychandprog pioneersBlack Mountain the soundtrack draws on inspiration from Tangerine Dream, Wendy Carlos andJohn Carpenter. Schmidt artfully navigates the various sonic sensibilities of his predecessors, incoporating touchstones such as mellotron choirs, glacial analogue synthesizer pads and arpeggiators. The result is ominously beauitful, otherworldly and terrifying.
  • PRESSED ON CLEAR WAX
  • Sinoia Caves is the project of Jeremy Schmidt, keys/organ player for Black Mountain who have over 110,000 soundscans to date.
  • Previous Sinoia Caves song was licensed for trailer for “The Dark Knight”
  • Beyond The Black Rainbow is the directorial debut from Panos Cosmatos, son of George Cosmatos director of such films as Tombstone and Rambo: First Blood Part II. Beyond The Black Rainbow was   released by Magnolia Pictures

CASSAVETES - OH SO LONG

Debut LP from Philadelphia's Cassavetes.

Bringing rock and roll back at it’s more basic level, Cassavetes is not trying to reinvent the wheel. They are making music to play when you just want to hang out, sing along or even console yourself. Go ahead–it’s OK to have feelings, these guys want to to feel it all.

Reminiscent of early to mid 90′s rock bands such as the first Foo Fighters record, Sugar, Smashing Pumpkins, Nirvana, Dinosaur Jr, et al.

Started as a project between Josh Agran (Paint it Black, Pet Milk) and Pat McCunney (Kill the Man Who Questions, Clayton and Fulcrum) with Chris Sigda (Likers) and Jon Murphy (Sore Saints) joining later to round out the group.

Don’t be fooled by the hardcore/punk history of the band mates, but don’t forget it either. This band is equally heavy and soothing. Their sound is no doubt a cacophony of melodic rock and roll and pounding punk rock/hardcore, a sound that would go as easily in a sweaty basement as it would in a huge rock arena.

Free download Included. Limited to 500 on black vinyl.

Vinyl Record News & Music Notes


Jimi Hendrix's 'The Cry Of Love' & 'Rainbow Bridge' To Be Reissued On Vinyl

Experience Hendrix and Legacy Recordings To Reissue The Cry Of Love and Rainbow Bridge – Two Classic Out-Of-Print Jimi Hendrix Albums Available Sept. 16 on CD and LP

On September 16, Experience Hendrix, LLC in conjunction with Legacy Recordings, the catalog division of Sony Music Entertainment will reissue two critically revered Jimi Hendrix albums on CD, vinyl and digital. The Cry Of Love and Rainbow Bridge, his first and second posthumous studio releases respectively, will be reintroduced with original album art and track orders. Both albums have been remastered by Bernie Grundman from the original analog masters. The Cry Of Love was last issued on CD in 1992, while Rainbow Bridge has never before seen an official CD release. The Cry Of Love may be pre-ordered on CD and LP; Rainbow Bridge may be pre-ordered on CD and LP - at Amazon.

Originally released in 1971, The Cry Of Love was compiled and mixed by Hendrix’s longtime engineer Eddie Kramer and Experience drummer Mitch Mitchell. The bulk of these tracks were recorded between December 1969 and the summer of 1970 at Electric Lady Studios in New York, and were intended to be part of an ambitious double LP tentatively titled First Rays of the New Rising Sun.

Commercially, The Cry Of Love was a huge success, reaching #3 in the U.S. and #2 in the UK, and spawned favorites such as “Angel,” “Freedom,” and “Ezy Ryder.” While Mitch Mitchell and bassist Billy Cox comprised the rhythm section on the lion’s share of the tracks, Buddy Miles played drums on “Ezy Ryder” and Noel Redding played bass on “My Friend” (recorded in 1968, before his departure from the Jimi Hendrix Experience). The Cry Of Love also includes the participation of notable guest musicians including Steve Winwood, Chris Wood and Buzzy Linhart among others. VH1 recently declared The Cry Of Love the greatest posthumous classic rock record of all time.

Rainbow Bridge was also compiled and mixed by Eddie Kramer and Mitch Mitchell in 1971, with the help of Electric Lady Studios engineer John Jansen. Most of the tracks were recorded in 1969 and 1970, during the same sessions that spawned The Cry Of Love. Rainbow Bridge is often misconstrued as being an entirely live album, being that the film of the same name features excerpts of a live Jimi Hendrix performance in Maui. However, Hendrix had no role in the creation of the rambling, unfocused 1971 film which was directed by Chuck Wein. The film was not a Hendrix project in any way but instead an independent vision of his manager Michael Jeffery. After Hendrix’s death in September 1970, Jeffery scrapped Hendrix’s original vision of a double studio album titled First Rays Of The New Rising Sun and called for Kramer, Mitchell and Jansen to compile two posthumous albums—including one that would that would serve as a soundtrack for the Rainbow Bridge film.

Mitchell, Kramer and Jansen drew upon Hendrix’s rich trove of studio recordings that the guitarist had been developing at Electric Lady Studios. Songs such as “Dolly Dagger” and “Room Full Of Mirrors” were bright examples of Hendrix’s new creative direction. Other standouts on the album included a studio rendition of “Star Spangled Banner” as well as the majestic “Hey Baby (New Rising Sun).” The one live track on the album, an extraordinary rendition of Hendrix’s original blues composition “Hear My Train A Comin’” is taken from a performance at Berkeley Community Theatre in May of 1970, and not in the film at all. Buddy Miles and Noel Redding both appear on one track each, and the Ronettes provide backing vocals on “Earth Blues.”

Beginning in the late 1990's, the tracks on The Cry Of Love and Rainbow Bridge were reassembled into various compilations, including First Rays of the New Rising Sun, South Saturn Delta, and The JimiHendrix Experience box set. Now, fans of all ages will be able to enjoy songs such as “Straight Ahead,” “Nightbird Flying,” and “Hey Baby (New Rising Sun)” as they were experienced when they first became available 43 years ago.

Allah-Las 'Worship the Sun' PRE-ORDER

Allah-Las' second album, Worship the Sun, expands on the sound established by their maiden effort, honing their fusion of West Coast garage rock and roll, Latin percussion and electric folk. As richly textured and timeless as a Southern California beach break, the songs are evocative of Los Angeles' storied past. Beatniks, artists, surfers, nomads. Remnants of a bygone Sunset Strip. Golden tans and cosmic sunsets. One can feel the warmth of the sun, but the band deftly avoids the kitsch so often indulged by lovers of these things.

Insound exclusive! Insound is the only place where you can get this white colored vinyl!

This album is a pre-order. We expect it to ship on or before the September 16th release date.

Foxygen ...'And Star Power' PRE-ORDER

…And Star Power is the new double album from Foxygen, a CINEMATIC AUDITORY ADVENTURE for the speedy freaks, skull krunchers, abductees, and misfits...Made by Foxygen at Dream Star Studios in their Secret Haunted House with the UFOs flying around in the sky.

A gaggle of guest stars. Roman-numeraled musical suites. Vocals recorded on a shoddy tape machine at The Beverly Hills Hotel and Chateau Marmont. A svelte 82-minute run time of psych-ward folk, cartoon fantasia, songs that morph into each other, weaving in and out of the head like UFO radio transmission skullkrush music. ADHD star power underground revolution. Soft-rock indulgences, D&D doomrock and paranoid bathroom rompers. Process is the point. A kaleidoscoping view. Blasphemy even the gods smile one. Rock and roll for the skull...*

*From Patty Smith's 1973 CREEM review of Todd Rundgren's A Wizard, A True Star. The section concludes "Todd Rundgren is preparing us for a generation of frenzied children who will dream in animation."

Heat Leisure III & IV Available For Pre-Order Via ThrillJockey

Heat Leisure is a collective centered around the Carney brothers of Pontiak, Greg Fox and Alexandra Drewchin of Guardian Alien, Steve Strohmeier of Beach House, and Robert J. Otten III. Their music takes a freewheeling approach to psychedelia with obvious nods to Amon Düül II, Can and the Grateful Dead. For this, their second gathering and recording at the Carney’s farm in Virginia, the group recruited the legendary Merry Prankster and Dead associate Ken Babbs, who emceed the Dead’s mythical Veneta, OR gig in 1972 that became Sunshine Daydream, to contribute a shamanistic monologue to “III,” which occupies the first side of this, their first full-length vinyl release. The Carneys approached Babbs about collaborating with Heat Leisure after staying at his Oregon farm on the last Pontiak tour. Heat Leisure’s core principles are spontaneity, serendipity, and collaboration. The band employs frying amp distortion, a signature of Pontiak, as well as an array of drums, synthesizers, samplers, organs and a heavy dose of explorative improvisation by the musicians to create a highly lyrical album.

Heat Leisure was conceived as a multi-media pursuit. While this release, III & IV, is an audio record, Heat Leisure I & II was released in the form of a short film/DVD with an accompanying 7”. The Carneys have said that future incarnations could take any form from performance and paintings, to sculptures or even digital mediums. Very much like the collaborative approach of the musicians to each session, they are keeping it open. I & II was recorded outside on the Carneys’ farm in Virginia, the ensemble improvising live on camera in the field for an afternoon. The film captures the free form interplay of the guitarist and Fox’s driving drums, along with the field’s more typical residents: the farm’s horses. In contrast III & IV was recorded late at night during a three day period during the first week of 2014 in Pontiak’s Studio A, also on their farm, with Lain Carney doing most of the engineering. The session was recorded live to 1” tape, the reel old and decaying, which lead the tape to subtly speed up and slow down as the tape broke down and left residue on the tape heads. This organic effect adds to the woozy, surreal vibe of the music, and could not be replicated in a digital recording.

III & IV is released on LP-only, pressed on virgin vinyl and presented in a jacket with spot UV gloss printing on cover and free download card.  This is a pre-order for October 21st street date.  All orders containing III & IV will ship on or before Oct 21st.

Pig Destroyer 'Mass & Volume' Pre-Order

Recorded during the final hours of the sessions for the ‘Phantom Limb’ lp (Decibel Magazine’s #1 record of 2007) ‘Mass & Volume’ finds Pig Destroyer’s typically break neck speed virtually come to a grinding halt.  2 epic songs of crushing doom prove that Pig Destroyer cannot only dominate all other wickedly fast grind bands, but that when Pig Destroyer does slow, they do slow better than anyone else out there.  If Pig Destroyer were to completely change gears and become a full time doom band, they would be the best doom band in the world.  Until then we all have ‘Mass & Volume’ to hold us over.

Super limited edition CD limited to 2000 copies.  Vinyl available in multiple cool colorways!

ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK - VIKINGS 2

Vikings is a Canadian-Irish historical drama television series, written and created by Michael Hirst. Filmed in Ireland, Vikings is inspired by the tales about the Viking Ragnar Lodbrok, one of the best-known mythological Norse heroes and notorious as the scourge of France and England. It portrays Ragnar as a Viking farmer who pioneers the first daring raids into England with the support of fellow warriors, his brother Rollo, and his wife, the shieldmaiden Lagertha.

At its heart, Vikings remains a family saga, following the fortunes of Ragnar, his extended family and the people he represents now that he is an earl. Ragnar's own desire to sail west, to explore new kingdoms, in alliance with King Horik, leads to a storm-tossed landing on the coast of Wessex, an important Saxon kingdom ruled by a king not unlike Ragnar. Season 2 is all about crises: of faith, of power and of relationships. Kingdoms are at stake. Lives are at stake. Love is at stake. And all under the watchful eyes of the gods.

The soundtrack  for Vikings 2 features selections from the original music of the second season of the series composed by award winning Canadian composer Trevor Morris, best know for his work on scores of The Tudors, The Borgias and  Immortals. Morris' score elevates the action and emotion experienced throughout the series. His music is at times dark and brooding to reflect the mystery and danger of the Viking world. Often, it's full of thunderous percussion and brass for scenes of conflict; while it's sensitive and touching to illustrate romance.

The critically acclaimed album peaked at number one on four charts, including the Billboard 200. The album received a 5× Platinum certification in the United States. Follow the Leader has sold over 14 million copies worldwide, making it Korn's most successful album. It's often credited with bringing nu metal to the mainstream.

ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK - EARTH TO ECHO

Earth To Echo is a heartwarming 2014 summer family adventure movie, telling the story of a bunch of young teenage friends whose lives are about to change. Their neighborhood is being destroyed by a highway construction project that is forcing their families to move away. But just two days before they must part ways, the boys begin receiving a strange series of signals on their phones.

Convinced something bigger is going on, the team set out to look for the source of their phone signals. What they discover is something beyond their wildest imaginations: a small alien who has become stranded on Earth. In need of their help, the four friends come together to protect the alien and help him find his way home. This journey, full of wonder and adventure, is their story, and their secret.

The soundtrack album features the songs from the film by artists such as The Mowgli's, This Will Destroy You, Big Data, Chiddy Bang, Heavy English, Holychild and Breathe Carolina. The record also includes a suite from the movie's original score composed by Joseph Trapanese (known from Oblivion, The Raid and Tron: Uprising).
