  • Milk of the Tree: Anthology Of Female Vocal Folk & Singer-Songwriters 1966-1973

    Notwithstanding one or two isolated exceptions, it wasn't until the mid-'60s that independent female voices really began to be heard within the music industry. Over the course of four hours and sixty tracks, Milk Of The Tree focuses on the music made in the late '60s and early '70s in both Britain and North America by either female solo artists or acts with featured female vocalists. Along the way, we encounter San Franciscan psychedelia, LA folk rock, Swinging London pop-folk, electric folk, progressive folk and even folk club folk as well as (of course) a plethora of singer- songwriters (including Various ladies of the Canyon) from the movement's golden age. As well as featuring most of the leading figures from both sides of the Atlantic, Milk Of The Tree includes many performers who received little attention at the time but who now have a cult reputation amongst collectors.
  • Lenny Kaye Presents Lightning Striking

    There are probably fewer pundits more qualified to opine upon popular music's past than Lenny Kaye. A keen observer of, and participant within, rock music's continued manifestations since it's birth pangs in the early 1950s, Kaye's deep knowledge, erudite analysis and infectious enthusiasm for the many tributaries whence and to where this behemoth of popular culture has flowed is something any aficionado should pay attention to. There is no better place to start than Lightning Striking, Kaye's new book that is part history, part memoir and one hundred percent engaging from start to finish. Like the book, it is a mixture of the familiar but essential and the fascinatingly unpredictable: in other words, not dissimilar to Kayes's curatorial triumph of yore Nuggets, the compilation that established the garage rock genre. The earliest entry is the Boswell Sisters' 1934 prophetic 'Rock And Roll', the most recent 'Gimme Chocolate!!" by hard rock/J-Pop hybrid Babymetal. In-between we hear a nuanced selection of the finest vintage R&B, pop, psychedelia, punk rock and heavy metal, from an intriguingly diverse selection of bedfellows. The sound quality is second to none, with plenty of ear-wrenching rarities - for instance, the unissued stereo take of the MC5's blitzkrieg 'Looking At You' peels paint faster than even the original mono A-Square single. Not to mention curios like 'Crazy Like A Fox', the author's very own 1966 "nugget if you dug it". Yes, "Lightning Striking" is the perfect companion to the tale Lenny tells, but it is also an energizing, inspiring listen in of itself, and a reminder once again of the life-affirming power of the music we all know and love. Hail, hail rock'n'roll!

  • Lucinda Williams's Jukebox Vol. 6: You Are Cordially Invited... A Tribute to the Rolling Stones

    Well, my first thoughts are that Williams has drawn, not unsurprisingly exclusively from the Stones purple patch, from '65 to '74 but it's an interesting selection. There are of course the obvious choices: "Satisfaction", "Paint It Black", "Sympathy For The Devil" and "You Can't Always Get What You Want" but there are also some rather less obvious numbers like "No Expectations", "Moonlight Mile" and "Time Waits For No One", and there's no room for some of the Stones big hits, "Jumping Jack Flash" for example; so it's an interesting mix. By and large, Williams hasn't reinvented or reimagined any of these songs, there are tweaks and some nice additions but pretty much they retain the sound and character of the originals, although there are exceptions and foremost amongst these is "Dead Flowers", always one of my favorites in the Stones catalog.
