Despite drawing an audience ofand featuring an array of big stars, the Harlem Cultural Festival was practically forgotten — while the mostly white Woodstock was mythologised, in nearly an instant and not unfairly so, as I suggested at its 50 th anniversary. Both events provide a number of tracks on this mix. The event was filmed, but found no takers.
So it languished in a basement for decades. It was as if a conspiracy of silence suppressed the event. Well, it was an event of black consciousness at which the Panthers provided security because the NYPD refused to! And, yes, it was political. There was little overlap between the three events. It is engrossing, exhilarating and emotional. The Guardian called it the best-ever music documentary ever, which is an excited claim.

Maze feat. On August 15, one of the great songwriters, of any generation, turns The Jimmy Webb Collection Vol. Both of those mixes provide proof for just how many great songs — some more famous than others — Webb wrote. Webb had a way of writing melodies that take residence under your skin, and lyrics that belong right up there with those of the likes of Hal David and Cole Porter.
And like those two, Webb could do gentle pathos and humour. More than that, Webb could articulate extraordinary ideas in a pithy line.
In the s, commercial success diminished, to the point that Webb wrote songs that expressed his frustration with the music business. The opening track here, Song Seller, is one of them.
One song here is sung by Webb. Which brings us to the other Webbian superpower: the arrangements. The Smiths - Hatful Of Hollow (Vinyl it is with Bacharach, you can recognise a Webb arrangement.

Twelve stories of significant deaths; more could have featured. Otherwise, two musicians who played on a couple of my first English-language singles — ZZ To and Uriah Heep — were among those who joined the big rock orchestra in the coursed of this round-up.
By the time the hiatus ended, Hill and Gibbons were the instantly recognisable if you discount airport confusions faces of ZZ Top. With their long beards, hats and shades, the untrained eye could tell them apart only by their height: Hill was the shorter one. ZZ Top will carry on without Hill. On his death-bed, Hill anointed Elwood Francis as his successor. The Frontman If ever your band needed a frontman, John Lawton was your man.
That gig took Lawton to the stage of the Eurovision Song Contest in to no great effect: their effort for West Germany placed 15 th out of 18 entries. His stint with the band was successful, yielding a global hit with Free Me. Lawton is the third of the five members of that line-up to die in less than a year; its sole survivor now is guitarist Mick Box.
Lawton left Uriah Heep inand later became the singer of the German rock group Zar, with whom he had a few hits. And on the side, he also sung in a series of German TV commercials.

From Ventura sat in the National Congress. In he was elected Vice-Mayor of the capital Santo Domingo mainly a ceremonial postand in its mayor for the left-of-centre Dominican Revolutionary Party, serving a term until The Doo Wop Legend When Willie Winfield retired as lead singer of doo wop pioneers The Harptones two years ago, he brought to an end a career that spanned 66 years, counting from when the band was discovered at amateur night at the Apollo in Incredibly, The Harptones never had a nationwide hit — not even their signature song, Sunday Kind Of Love — but among doo wop fans they stand among the giants of the genre.
And Winfield, with his comfortable tenor, stood out as a The Smiths - Hatful Of Hollow (Vinyl.

In he rejoined Kansas, leaving again in due to the heavy touring schedule.

He worked many times with Deniece Williams, for whom he co-wrote the classic Silly. Kekana was five years old when he LP) his sight. At a school for the blind he discovered his talent for music.
In his career, he earned more than 70 gold records and numerous awards. While still recording, Kekana studied law, and later became a university lecturer in labour law — while still making records.

Last week we had really bad weather. Rain, rain and more rain. Which is a blessing, of course, if you are living in regions of drought, but a curse when you have no secure home or live in a territory that floods in times of heavy rains.
So I put together a mix of songs about rain — real the actual meteorological phenomenon, and about wet weather as a metaphor. Some of the tracks are obvious. It was while humming Rainy Night In Georgia in the shower — artificial rain! A few obvious ones are missing: no raindrops keeping falling on heads, no always raining on me, no Beatles backward sound-noodling… Maybe in Volume 2, should here be one.
I think the result is a great way of spending a rainy day — or a hot day when one could do with a downpour. As ever, this mix is timed to fit on a standard CD-R and includes home-dried covers.
