VINYL CLASSICS

The East LA Revue.com Internet Radio presents VINYL CLASSICS for your listening and entertainment pleasure. We dedicate this effort to expose and educate our listeners to the music, sound, and life style from the days of 33.3 rpm record albums and 45 rpm (revolutions per minute) records. We use the finest diamond tip stylus and the finest turntables available. Many classics albums have never been recorded to digital CDs for and many represent local and regional groups. This exposes a wealth of talent to us now and the ability to share the history and stories of our musical leaders.

We are hosting VINYL CLASSICS to introduce our listeners to more music and music from various sources. You may notice a different tonality to the music. It is a deeper and richer sound with the surface noise intact. The records are in Mono, Stereo, or High Fidelity. We will play the long-playing record albums from start to finish and without interruption, except to flip the album over to the other side. We hope you enjoy and appreciate the music.

Welcome to the Vinyl Classics feature of the East LA Revue.com internet radio site, where we are bringing it back and keeping the music alive 24/7 and world-wide. We are featuring “Booker T and the MGs Greatest Hits”. This 12’’ long-playing record album was recorded in Stereo on the Stax Record label, world-wide in 1970.
 The song tracks start with their biggest seller “Hang Em’ High”, partly due to the popular movie of the same name. Side 1 has Hang Em’ High, Eleanor Rigby, Soul Limbo, Over Easy, Mrs. Robinson, and Something. We flip the record over to Side 2 with one of my favorite instrumentals Time Is Tight and continue with Johnny I Love You, Head or Tails, Meditation, and Hip-Hug Her.
Booker T and the MGs were an American band with Booker T Jones on Hammond B-3 Organ,  Al Jackson Jr. on drums, Steve Cropper on guitar and Lewis Steinberg on bass, who was replaced by Donald "Duck" Dunn in 1963. As well as playing on and producing a stellar amount of records, working with artists like Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett, and Sam and Dave they were successful as a band in their own right, with hits like Green Onions (1962) and Hip Hug-Her (1967). Booker T & The MG's were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1992.

windows media player Barbara Mason - Yes I'm Ready

macs or mp3 player Barbara Mason - Yes I'm Ready

 Mason, a soul / R&B singer from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, had released a few singles while she was a teenager in the mid-1960s. Barbara Mason was very much a teenager when "Yes, I'm Ready" climbed the charts and this endearing debut LP "Yes, I'm Ready" was released in 1965 on the Artic Records label.
The album contained Side 1: Yes, I'm Ready Written-By – B. Mason; Come To Me Written-By – B. Mason; You Got What It Takes Written-By – B. Gordy, O. Gordy, T. Carlo; Misty Written-By – E. Garner; Something You Got Written-By – K. Kenner; and Come See About Me Written-By – Holland, Holland, Dozier. 
We continue on Side 2 with: Sad Sad Girl Written-By – B. Mason; Got To Get You Off My Mind Written-By – D. Burke, J.P. Moore, S. Burke; Keep Him Written-By – B. Mason; Girls Heve Feelings Too Written-By – B. Mason; Moon River Written-By – H. Mancini, J. Mercer; and Trouble Child Written-By – B. Mason.
Barbara Mason's debut LP contains her huge 1965 hit "Yes, I'm Ready" and "Sad, Sad Girl",  another self-written Mason ballad, drips with hurt as she explains how blue her world has become since she lost her fellow. Mason wrote most of her singles and has said they're based on real life experiences; she often could be seen visibly crying on stage while delivering one of her songs. Other than the B-sides, the rest of the album consists of remakes like "Something You Got," "Moon River," and "Misty."
On behalf of the entire staff and DJ crew, this is Steven Chavez and I thank you for stopping by the VINYL CLASSICS  and our featured LP by BARBARA MASON here on the East LA Revue.com internet radio site.

windows media player Rare Earth - GET READY

macs or mp3 player Rare Earth - GET READY

Welcome to EastLAEevue.com's Vinyl Classic segment with your host DJ Sapo. On this show Rare Earth’s Get Ready will be played in its entirety. A seminal landmark recording effort from a Motown artist was highlighted by a memorable jazz fused rendition of the title track penned by William "Smokey" Robinson. This album marks the onset of the 1970s and the reflection of FM album oriented music formatting that was taking place. Rare Earth was a truly distinguished artist at Motown. This album was released in 1969. The albums label was unique in that it was an illustrative moniker of the bands own name which was an official trademark label of the Motown Corporation for “Rare Earth” vinyl releases. This first side offers a sample of Rare Earth’s timely sound at the height of the Vietnam War and in the midst of the Flower Power generation. As a well-polished professional ensemble who hailed from Detroit they would help usher in a new generation of Motown music in the early 1970s. The vocal segment of this version of the song Get Ready would enjoy extensive AM airplay as a hit single 45 rpm release. But the 21 minute expanded which covered all of side two of the 33 rpm LP version broke new ground in the annals of recorded music as a milestone album for the group. They blazed a unique trail along with other rock acts in the art of opus instrumental studio and live performance recording which is embodied in this full side album version of Get Ready. Another interesting side notes in regards to the group’s name where on the vinyl record label they are referred to as “The Rare Earth” they are simply “Rare Earth” on the albums cover.
Thank you for listening to our presentation of the vinyl classic 1969 Motown release of Get Ready by Rare Earth. On behalf of the entire Eastlarevue.com staff thanks, also for logging on to the internet jukebox and keep checking us out as we continue to play albums in their entirety and hosted by your favorite DJ. Also sign our guestbook to let us know what you think of our programming. This is DJ Sapo saying Keep listening and take care from EastLARevue.com.

windows media player The Chantels

macs or mp3 player The Chantels

The Beto-Man presents one of his favorite LP records “The Chantels” and it is definitely a favorite of ours too. This LP record was recorded in High Fidelity. Check out the unique sound of Hi-Fi and the sound of the 1950s. This record was released in 1956 on End record label. The Chantels were a female quartet and they sang Rhythm and Blues. The remarkable thing is that these four girls from New York were 13 – 16 years old. Lois, Sonia, Renee, and Jackie were the Chantels. They were recognized while singing in the St. Anthony Church Choir in New York. This album followed several single hits. The songs included are “Maybe, The Plea, Come My Little Baby, Prayee, He’s Gone, I Love You So, Every Night, Whoever You Are, How Could You Call It Off, Sure of Love, and If You Try”. The Chantels were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2002.

The original record cover was a picture of the girls dressed as cotton pickers in a field of cotton. The record executives decided that the cover was too racial and changed it to the album cover pictured above right in the middle of the printing. Some of the original record covers show up at record conventions and the record may be worth over $300 to record collectors.

The Beto-Man thanks you for listening to the Vinyl Classics on the East LA Revue.com Internet Radio.

Sapo Bell Records 1974

windows media player Sapo vinyl classic

macs or mp3 player Sapo vinyl classic

Gozando with Chico and EastLArevue.com are proud to present this classic recording from our library.  This time we visit the San Pancho (San Francisco) Bay area and revisit a timeless and rare recording from the band Sapo. This recording was done at the Wally Heider Studios in San Francisco and was the only album released by Sapo.  This album was released during the height of the Latin Rock explosion with groups like Santana, Malo and Tower of Power driving the charge in the bay area and featured a heavy mix of Funk, Rock, Latin Soul and Rare Groove. There's a bit more funk in the mix here than in some of the group's contemporaries a leaner, more soulful sound that's very unique and led by the cool vocals from singer and band leader Richard Bean, who's got a very distinctive approach. The rhythms are wonderful and the album explodes with great tracks that combine equal parts Latin, funk, and soul  all in a way that really lives up to the best promise of such a combination and never falls too heavily on one or the other side of the fence. This recording was re-issued in limited release on CD several years ago and this album remains a collectors item. Titles include "Been Had", the Suave Cha Cha of  "Ritmo Del Corazon" listen to the smooth vocals of “Orale Orale” , the modal groover "It's The Music", and the muy sabroso "Sapo's Montuno" that features some great solos from the band. Other cuts include "Nina", "Get It On", and the barrio classic "Can't Make It" a nice slow cha-cha that was Richard’s follow up to the Chicano classic “Suavecito” which Richard Co-wrote while he was with the band Malo. This was one of the groups’ first songs “The song came out of a poem I wrote ", says Richard. “Once I the had words, I knew how I wanted the song to be. I took it to the band and we developed it and made a demo tape for Bell Records, (AKA) ARISTA who loved it. We auditioned for the label in San Jose, after seeing the whole package we got signed in 1974. The song was at it's height and became an anthem during the Lowrider era around 24th st. and Mission, as lowriding reached it's peak in the '70's and early '80s.” Our host, Chico remembers interviewing Richard several years ago on his Nationwide Show the Latin Style of Jazz on the CRN Networks and enjoyed an hour long 0n-air visit with Richard speaking about his involvement with Malo the formation of this band Sapo and his work with legendary guitarist Jorge Santana. “It was a great surprise to me and thanks to Dr. Jeff Eaton who was playing with Sapo at the time in Denver, Colorado I was able to visit with Richard and ask him about his involvement with the Chicano/Latino rock scene” – remembers Chico. This recording features a talented cast of musicians that created a very unique and smooth sound.  Richard Bean – Timbales & Lead Vocals, Bobby Brown Gaviola- Drums and Vocals, Raul Rekow (Current Conguero with Carlos Santana band)  – Congas, Vocals, Kincaid Miller- Electric & Acoustic Piano and Vocals, Oscar Estrella- Guitar and Vocals.  The groups Horn Section comprised the talents of: Joe Ellis- Trumpet & Flugelhorn, Bill Atwood- Trumpet & Flugelhorn, Wayne Wallace-Trombone, Jules Rowell- Trombone, Jack Schroer-Tenor Sax, Dave Liebman-Tenor Sax, Dave Poe-Flute.  We hope you enjoy this recording from the band Sapo on our vinyl Classic segment. 


windows media player Seals and Crofts - Greatest Hits

macs or mp3 player Seals and Crofts - Greatest Hits

Welcome to EastLArevue.com's Vinyl Classic segment with your host DJ Sapo. On this show a great album; Seals & Crofts/Greatest Hits will be played in its entirety. This prolific songwriting duo recorded some of the most innovative tracks that helped shape and define the early 1970s “mellow” rock music sound. James Seals and Dash Crofts fused an acoustical banjo and guitar with smooth harmonic vocals and a rich variety of instrumentation to create their own unique style. This album was issued on the Warner Brothers Label in 1975.  Interestingly, their earthy and haunting spiritual lyricism blended nicely with a contemporary upbeat melodic soft rock sound. The album includes chart favorites, Diamond Girl, Hummingbird and Summer Breeze. Any one of those three recordings can be considered as one of their signature songs as a 70s icon artist. This collection offers an early portrait of the musical act that would epitomize an important aspect of 1970s popular culture and lifestyle. Seals and Crofts along with many other 1970s musical rock acts such as the Eagles, Chicago, and Steely Dan would be known for recording and charting soft mellow laid back tunes that dominated AM top 30 radio airplay and at same time music from their albums was extensively featured on FM stereo rock formats. Usually they would play a shorter single version on AM and a longer FM version from an album. Or become popular FM favorites that did not gain considerable AM play, a perfect example being the final cut on this album, “We May Never Pass This Way (Again)” a song that really takes you back to that great 70s era of AM/FM radio. Thank you on behalf of the entire Eastlarevue.com staff for logging on to vinyl classics and keep checking us out as we continue to play albums in their entirety and hosted by your favorite DJ.

Greetings and welcome to the VINYL CLASSICS feature here on the East LA Revue.com Internet Radio site. Your host and DJ for this presentation is Roberto “El Beto-man” Tijerina with “ENCORE” by Santo & Johnny. This Long-Playing album was released in 1960 on the Canadian-American Records label.

The single became a major local favorite and was then licensed to the Canadian-American imprint, where it topped the Billboard pop charts in August of that year.  More popular internationally than at home, Santo & Johnny continued to record well into the following decade, typically landing on little-known Italian labels; the duo finally disbanded in 1976, with Santo continuing on as a solo act.

macs or mp3 player Got LIVE If You Want! - Rolling Stones 1966

Thank you for stopping by the Vinyl Classics feature here on the East LA Revue.com Internet Radio site. Got LIVE If You Want It! is the first live album by British rock band The Rolling Stones. It was released in the US in late 1966 on the London Records label and released as Have You Seen Your Mother LIVE! on Decca in England,  for export only; it was not released in the UK under this alternate title. The album had been compiled as a result of a contractual obligation with US distributor London Records, and the band themselves were not happy with it. They consequently disowned it, arguing that Get Yer Ya-Yas Out! The Rolling Stones in Concert (1970) was their true live album debut.
The performances captured for “Got Live If You Want It” reportedly occurred on 1 and 7 October 1966, in Newcastle on their last UK tour for three years, despite the album's assertion that the recording hailed from the Royal Albert Hall.
The introduction is by Long John Baldry.  Side One 1:"Under My Thumb" 2:54; "Get Off of My Cloud" 2:54; "Lady Jane" 3:08; "Not Fade Away" (Norman Petty/Charles Hardin) 2:04; "I've Been Loving You Too Long" (Otis Redding/Jerry Butler) 2:55; and "Fortune Teller" (Naomi Neville) 1:57. On Side Two: "The Last Time" 3:08; "19th Nervous Breakdown" 3:31; "Time Is on My Side" (Norman Meade) 2:49; "I'm Alright" 2:27; "Have You Seen Your Mother, Baby, Standing in the Shadow?" 2:19; and "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" 3:05. All songs by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, except where noted.
The Rolling Stones, on this recording were: Mick Jagger – lead vocals, percussion; Keith Richards – guitars, backing vocals; Brian Jones – guitars, backing vocals, harmonica, and Appalachian dulcimer; Charlie Watts – drums, percussion; and Bill Wyman – bass guitar, backing vocals. (The original Rolling Stone line-up) The album was produced Andrew Loog Oldham.
Again, we thank you for stopping by our feature presentation of the Vinyl Classics and encourage everyone to check out the other musical offerings on this site. I recently picked-up this LP at Groover’s Physical Music, located in Riverside CA. Excellent service and selection at reasonable prices at this record shop.

macs or mp3 player The Tower of Power - Live and In Living Color 1976

Greetings to the VINYL CLASSIC feature on the East LA Revue.com, where we feature a vinyl recording (usually from the distant past) and play them in their entirety and uninterrupted. On this edition, we are presenting “Tower of Power ‎– Live and In Living Color” on the Warner Bros. Records ‎– BS 2924; and was released in 1976.
On Side 1: Down To The Nightclub (Bump City) Written-By – D. Garibaldi, E. Castillo, S. Kupka 2:26; You're Still A Young Man Written-By – E. Castillo, S. Kupka 5:12; What Is Hip ? Written-By – D. Garibaldi, E. Castillo, S. Kupka 6:25; and  Sparkling In The Sand  Written-By – E. Castillo, J. Lopez, S. Kupka 8:05.
And on Side 2: Knock Yourself Out Written-By – E. Castillo, S. Kupka 23:40.
The band's final album for Warner Brothers, the absolutely stunning 1975 Live and in Living Color ensured that Tower of Power left in a blaze of glory. Recorded at Sacramento Memorial Auditorium and Cerritos College, the group brought what remains one of the era's finest live albums.  “Live and In Living Color” features five tracks of epic proportions. Reaching back to its debut LP, East Bay Grease, Tower of Power jammed on a majestic 23-minute rendition of "Knock Yourself Out" and the sleepy classic "Sparkling in the Sand," before continuing with two songs pulled from Bump City. "Down to the Nightclub (Bump City)" is effusive, while "You're Still a Young Man" is an absolutely outstanding performance of one of TOP's finest songs -- and judging by the audience enthusiasm, it packed as much power in 1976 as it did in 1972 (and indeed, still does today). "What Is Hip?, from the group's most successful era, stands well as a lone representative of what many hail as TOP's finest hour. Funk and Finesse at its best.
The musical credits for this album are: GREG ADAMS — Flugelhorn, Horn, Trumpet, Vocals; EMILIO CASTILLO — Producer, Sax (Tenor), Vocals; BRUCE CONTE — Guitar, Vocals; DAVID CARIBALDI— Drums; MIC GILLETTE — Flugelhorn, Horn, Piccolo, Trombone, Trumpet, Vocals; STEPHEN “Doc” KUPKA — Sax (Baritone), Saxophone, Vocals; LENNY PICKETT — Flute, Sax (Alto), Sax (Tenor), Saxophone; FRANCIS “ROCCO” PRESTIA— Bass; CHESTER THOMPSON — Clavinet, Keyboards, Organ, Vocals; and HUBERT TUBBS — Vocals. Tom Flye — Engineer.  David Garibaldi left the band again after this album. This was vocalist Hubert Tubbs's last album WITH THE TOP as well.

Cold Blood is a long-standing soul-rock-jazz band founded by Larry Field in 1968 and originally based in Oakland CA.  The band first came to prominence in 1969 when rock impresario Bill Graham signed them after an audition and they played the Fillmore West in San Francisco. Pense has been compared to Janis Joplin, and it was Joplin who recommended the audition to Graham. Their initial four albums, Cold Blood (produced by David Rubinson), Sisyphus (produced by Fred Catero), First Taste of Sin (produced by Donny Hathaway), and Thriller (produced by David Rubinson) remain their best known work. The band disbanded in the late 1970s, reformed in the 1980s and stabilized with its current membership in the 1990s. Cold Blood continues to record and perform today, and some former band members such as Raul Matute (and some from Tower of Power) appear on the band's most recent album.

 Willie Bobo was the stage name of William Correa (February 28, 1934 – September 15, 1983),an American jazz percussionist. He grew up in Spanish Harlem, New York City. He made his name in Latin Jazz, specifically Afro-Cuban jazz, in the 1960s and '70s, with the timbales becoming his favored instrument. He met Mongo Santamaría shortly after his arrival in New York and studied with him while acting as his translator, and later at the age of 19 joined Tito Puente for four years.
After the runaway success of Cal Tjader's “Soul Sauce” in which he was heavily involved, Bobo formed a new band with the backing of Verve Records, releasing “Spanish Grease”, of which the title track is probably his most well-known tune. Highly successful at this attempt, Bobo released a further seven albums with Verve. After a period of ill health, he died at the age of 49, succumbing to cancer.His son, Eric Bobo (Eric Correa), is a percussionist with crew Cypress Hill. He also performed on the Beastie Boys' 1994 album Ill Communication, as well as doing the 1994 Lollapalooza tour with the group.

macs or mp3 player The Best of Bob Dylan 1967

This is “BOB DYLAN GREATEST HITS”, released in March of 1967 and the eighth LP released by Dylan on Columbia label. It peaked at #10 on the Pop charts and it went to #3 in the United Kingdom; certified five times platinum in the USA, it is one of his very best-selling albums.
With no activity by Dylan since the end of his 1965 world tour, and his motorcycle accident of that summer, Columbia needed new product to continue to capitalize on Dylan's commercial appeal. Hence the appearance of this package, the label's first Dylan compilation, and its first LP release with a $5.98 list price, one dollar more than that of standard releases.
Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits includes, on Side 1: “Rainy Day Women #12 & 35"(released March 22, 1966) 4:40; "Blowin' in the Wind" (released August 13, 1963) 2:51; “The Times They Are a-Changin’”3:16; "It Ain't Me Babe" 3:38; "Like a Rolling Stone" (released June 28, 1965) 6:12.
On Side 2: "Mr. Tambourine Man" 5:31; "Subterranean Homesick Blues" (released March 8, 1965) 2:22; "I Want You" (released June 10, 1966) 3:09; "Positively 4th Street" (released September 7, 1965) 4:12; and "Just like a Woman".
This collection anthologizes the best early work of one of the most important musical innovators of the 20th Century. The songs collected here amount to a primer on the changing face of popular song form in post-Elvis America.  This album also serves as Dylan's de facto collection for the 1960s, as all but three of the tracks present. The cover photograph of “BOB DYLAN GREATEST HITS” was taken by Rowland Sherman at Dylan's November 28, 1965, concert in Washington, D.C. The cover won the 1967 Grammy award for Best Album Cover, Photography for Roland Scherman, photographer; John Berg and Bob Cato, art directors (Columbia). The original album package also included a poster by Glaser, a colorful psychedelic poster depicting Dylan.

Jimmy Cliff OM (born James Chambers on 1 April 1948) is a Jamaican musician, singer, and actor, born in Somerton District, St. James, Jamaica. He is the only currently living musician to hold the Order of Merit, the highest honor that can be granted by the Jamaican government for achievement in the arts and sciences.  Cliff is best known among mainstream audiences for songs such as "The Harder They Come",  "You Can Get It If You Really Want" and "Many Rivers to Cross" from the soundtrack to The Harder They Come; and his covers of Cat Stevens' "Wild World" and Johnny Nash's "I Can See Clearly Now" from the film Cool Running. Cliff was one of five performers inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2010.
His international debut album was Hard Road to Travel. It received excellent reviews and included "Waterfall" (composed by Nirvana) which became a hit in Brazil and won the International Song Festival.  "Waterfall" was followed in 1969 by "Wonderful World, Beautiful People" and "Vietnam" in 1970, both popular throughout most of the world. Bob Dylan called "Vietnam" the best protest song he had ever heard. We agree with BD and enjoyed all of the music on this LP. Thank you for stopping by and encourage everyone to return soon.


windows media playerLand of 1000 Dances - Vampi Soul

macs or mp3 player Land of 1000 Dances - Vampi Soul

Welcome to the Vinyl Classics, an exclusive feature for the East LA Revue.com Internet Radio site. This is perhaps the greatest Chicano record albums of all time “LAND OF 1000 DANCES” by Cannibal and the Headhunters. Eddie Davis originally produced the vinyl album in 1965, on the Rampart Record label in Mono and Stereo. Cannibal & the Headhunters had one of the great party hits of the 1960s. It hit number 30 on the charts and inspired one of Wilson Pickett's finest covers. The group toured with the North American 1965 Beatles but  never followed it up with any hits.  Their album, 1965's Land of 1000 Dances on Rampart, is a classic.
Richard "Scar" Lopez and Robert "Rabbit" Jaramillo founded the group in 1964; the other group members were Frankie "Cannibal" Garcia and Joe "Yo Yo" Jaramillo. The band was originally called "Bobby and the Classics". Still in high school, they came from Ramona Gardens and Estrada Courts Housing Projects of East Los Angeles, and were inspired by the African American doo wop groups in their neighborhoods. The Blendells Band and the King Curtis Orchestra provided the back-up music for the album recordings at Stereo Masters in Hollywood, CA. This group toured recorded and performed together for only eighteen months, before they broke up due to personal conflicts.
The songs on this Vinyl Classic are: Land of a Thousand Dances; The Boy from New York City; My Girl; Don't Let Her Go; Searchin'; Out Of Sight; Devil in Disguise; Shotgun; Strange World; Here Comes Love; Get Your Baby; and The Fat Man. We have included the bonus tracks from the Vampi Soul vinyl edition with the long stereo version of Land of 1000 Dances; I’ll Show You How to Love Me; Nau Ninny Nau; Follow the Music; I Need Your Loving; and Please Baby Please. The group runs through a selection of contemporary hits like the Temptations' "My Girl," Junior Walker's "Shotgun," and the Ad Libs' "The Boy from New York City" and a handful of originals composed by the band and fellow members of the Rampart Records family like Chick Carlton and Larry Tamblyn. The covers are fun and energetic, but the originals like "Strange World"; the stomping brown-eyed soul shouter "Don't Let Her Go" and "The Fat Man" rockers with some wild harmonica, demonstrate what an exciting and fun band they were.
Hector Gonzalez from Rampart Records here with the East LA Revue.com internet radio site, to introduce this LP for the VINYL CLASSICS feature, an exclusive here on the internet jukebox. We hope that you enjoy the music as much as we enjoy playing it. We love the vinyl for a deeper and richer tone and fidelity and a more enjoyable listening experience.

macs or mp3 player Richie Valens - Concert at Pacoima Jr. High School 1958

Welcome to the VINYL CLASSICS feature here on the East LA Revue.com Internet Radio site. On this segment, we feature the historic record album “Ritchie Valens in Concert at Pacoima Jr. High School”. This album was recorded on December 10, 1958 (Concert) and 1958-59 (Demos). It was released on Bob Keene’s Delfi Record label DFLP-1214 in December of 1960.

On December 10, 1958, Valens, having completed a recent tour of Hawaii, gave a performance at his old Pacoima Junior High School. The show was emceed by Gail Smith, a close friend of his who later became president of the Ritchie Valens Memorial Fan Club in Los Angeles. Valens' guitar and vocals were only accompanied by drummer Don Phillips. The concert was taped using a small portable tape recorder. It consists of his only live performance ever recorded.

After Valens' untimely death on February 3, 1959, numerous Ritchie Valens Fan Clubs were formed all over the nation. By late 1960, with no further records released since the "Ritchie" album a year before, his manager Robert Keane received letters en masse from fan club members who were hoping there were more of Valens' songs to be released. Keane responded by obtaining the tape of four songs from the Pacoima Junior High show and pressing it to record. To fill the "live" side of the album, an early demo of "Come On, Let's Go", bearing no resemblance to the released "hit" version, was added with live audience dubbed in, and the rest of side two was filled with unfinished demos recorded at Keane's home studio. Keane provided narrative descriptions of each track.

All songs written and composed by Ritchie Valens, except where noted: Side One (From the Pacoima Junior High School show) "Introduction by Bob Keane" 1:57; "Come On, Let's Go" (Ritchie Valens, Robert Kuhn) 3:20 "Donna" 3:05; "Summertime Blues" (Jerry Capehart, Eddie Cochran) 2:58 "From Beyond" 3:55; "La Bamba" (Traditional, adapted by Valens) 4:37; Side Two (Unfinished demos) "Introduction by Bob Keane" :20; “Rhythm Song" 1:14; "Guitar Instrumental" 1:54; "Malaguena" (Marian Banks, Ernesto Lecuona) 3:24; “Rock Little Darling" (Ritchie Valens, Robert Kuhn) 1:29; "Let's Rock and Roll".

macs or mp3 player Salesian High School Rock and Roll Show - Volume 1

Welcome to the VINYL CLASSICS presentation here on the East LA Revue.com Internet Radio site, where we feature a vinyl recording in its entirety and without interruptions. We have a rare live recording from the Bishop Mora Salesian High School Rock and Roll Show held on Sunday, April 19, 1964 at the East Los Angeles City College (ELACC) Auditorium. This is an excellent musical documentation of a concert held in East Los Angeles, CA. to hear some of the top name Rock and Roll bands from the area. As this was a private pressing, there probably weren't too many pressed at the time, and I'd assume that most were purchased by teenagers and were probably played to death, so I'd guess that there aren't too many copies still around after 49 years.  

The artists and songs included on this LP are, on Side 1: Bobbie and the Esquires - "You'll Lose A Good Thing"; John Gamboa Sextet - "Down At The Chicken Shack" and "Moody's Mood For Love"; Sal Padilla and the Leggeriors - "Night Train"; and Thee Midnighters - "Chinese Checkers" and "For Your Love". We flip the record over to Side 2 for: The Vesuvians - "The Fugitive" and "Hand Clapping"; Blue Satins - "Summertime", "Love Lights" and "My First Love"; and The Salesian Mustang Swing Band - "Theme For Rock 'n Roll".

The concert admission price was $1.25 and only $1 if you were a high school student with a valid school ID. I know and can personally testify to the facts and sounds from this VINYL CLASSIC because I was one of the 2,000 in attendance that Sunday afternoon, for a concert to remember, as it is billed as such on the backside of the LP. It was recorded on a 12” microgroove 33 1/3 revolutions per minute vinyl disc and initially sold at the high school book store for a hefty $3.25. This is the first concert record produced by “The Prof” Bill Taggart’s team at the Boyle Heights parochial school for boys.  Another person that was instrumental in the production and recording of this event is Tony Garcia and we certainly appreciate all the other contributors, the audience, and the musicians for this chance to go back and actually listen to the early bands from the area. I don’t know if they intended to capture and document a slice of 1964 Americana and document the early contributions by artists on the Eastside of Los Angeles, to Rhythm & Blues and Rock & Roll history but I am one happy Angelino that they did record and produce this record. And now that technology has advanced to this stage, we can transfer the format and present this recording for you to enjoy.
Steven Chavez, here for the East LA Revue.com Internet Radio site, saying so long for now and we hope that you enjoy the music as much as we enjoy playing it. We love the vinyl for a deeper and richer tone and fidelity and an enjoyable listening experience.

The group's repertoire has included, during its five-decade career, R&B, doo-wop, funk, disco, soul, and adult contemporary music.

macs or mp3 player Where Did Our Love Go EP - The Supremes 1964

“WHERE DID OUR LOVE GO” is the second studio LP by Motown singing group The Supremes and was released August 31, 1964. The album includes several of the group's singles and B-sides from December 1962 and July1964, including the group's first Billboard Pop Singles number-one hits, "Where Did Our Love Go", "Baby Love", and "Come See About Me", as well as their first Top 40 hit, and the hit single "Run, Run, Run". With the release of this album, The Supremes became the first act in Billboard magazine history to have three number-one hits from the same album. This was the album that introduced "The Motown Sound" to the masses.  Diana Ross, Florence Ballard, and Mary Wilson were on all the lead and background vocals; The Four Tops, and Holland–Dozier–Holland: background vocals on "Run, Run, Run"; and The Funk Brothers on all of the instrumentations.
In the 1960s and 1970s, record companies released extended play (EP) versions of long play (LP) albums for use in jukeboxes. These were commonly known as "compact 33s" or "little LPs." They played at 33⅓ rpm, were pressed on 7-inch vinyl and frequently had as many as six songs. What made them EP-like was the fact that some songs were omitted for time purposes, and the tracks deemed the most popular were left on. Unlike most EPs before them, and most 7-inch vinyl in general (pre-1970s), these were issued in stereo.
On Side 1 of this Extended Play: "He Means The World to Me"; "Baby Love"; and "Ask Any Girl". On Side 2: "Where Did Our Love Go"; "Come See About Me"; and “Run Run Run”.

Hello and welcome the East LA Revue.com internet radio site and the VINYL CLASSICS feature. We play vinyl records and feature vinyl discs in their entirety, and we don’t skip one single groove. This is an Extended Play (EP) 33.3 rpm 7 inch, “Compact 33s” or “Little LPs”” from 1964. It was recorded in Stereo from the Reprise Records label and produced for use in jukeboxes. This is a Promotional Copy and intended for radio air-play in-stores and on the radio airwave or other promotional events by the record company. These “promo discs” were usually produced in limited quantity and deemed rare to the collector. Now with the winds of technology to our side, we can transfer the sound to digital sources for this internet podcast. This is a slice of 1964 Americana THE LATIN ALBUM by Trini Lopez.
Soon after his live performance of "If I Had a Hammer" became a surprise smash in 1964, Trinidad Lopez III (aka Trini Lopez) began branching out -- as all adult pop artists did during the '60s -- with full LPs devoted to everything from folk music and the hits of the day to R&B. None were as comfortable a fit, however, as his Latin Album, which featured 12 standards from the repertoire, several of them very familiar to American audiences. Lopez's performances are jaunty but passionate, and about as authentically Latin as could be expected from an LP of this type. Don Costa's arrangements make more concessions to the mainstream audience, but they leave Lopez plenty of room to indulge in the occasional vocal acrobatics to be expected on a Latin record.
This EP album has, on Side 1: Perfidia;  Adelita; and Granada. We flip the “mini-album” over to Side 2 for:  Angelita; Cu-cu-rru-cu-cu Paloma; and Cuando Calienta el Sol.

macs or mp3 player Full House EP - Wes Montgomery

Hello and welcome the East LA Revue.com internet radio site and the VINYL CLASSICS feature. We play vinyl records and feature vinyl discs in their entirety, and we don’t skip one single groove. We are here to present an Extended Play 33.3 rpm 7 inch “mini-album” titled “FULL HOUSE” by Wes Montgomery. This EP was released on the Riverside Records label in 1962. It was recorded in Stereo.
The performance was recorded live at Tsubo in Berkeley, California on June 25, 1962. The session featured a quintet that included Wynton Kelly on piano, Johnny Griffin on tenor saxophone, Paul Chambers on bass, and Jimmy Cobb on drums. Full house is the seventh album, but the first live jazz album by American jazz guitarist Wes Montgomery.
The track listing for this “little LP” is "Full House" (Wes Montgomery) – 9:14 on Side 1. And on the flip-side, Side 2: "Cariba (Montgomery)" – 9:35.
In the 1960s and 1970s, record companies released EP versions of long play (LP) albums for use in jukeboxes. These were commonly known as "compact 33s" or "little LPs." They played at 33⅓ rpm, were pressed on 7-inch vinyl and frequently had as many as six songs. What made them EP-like was the fact that some songs were omitted for time purposes, and the tracks deemed the most popular were left on. Unlike most EPs before them, and most 7-inch vinyl in general (pre-1970s), these were issued in stereo.

macs or mp3 player Richie Valens - 1959

Welcome to another Vinyl Classic here on the East LA Revue.com. Your host for this feature will be Frankie Firme. Frankie is from the San Fernando Valley. He has been to many of the venues and locations where Richie Valens performed, including the American Legion Hall in San Fernando. Frankie went deep into the musical vaults for this vinyl gem. The record album is still in the plastic wrap and the sound is great. This long-playing record is over 50 years old and the album cover and disc are in excellent condition. The sound quality and tonality from these analog sources, covers a full-range of sound and is far superior to the sound from the condensed sound on the CDs.
This album was released in March of 1959, a month after the fatal plane crash. It was released on the Del Fi Records of Hollywood, California. The track list includes on Side 1: That’s My Little Suzie; In a Turkish Town; Come On, Let's Go; Donna; Boney-Maronie; and Ooh, My Head. We flip this record over for Side 2 with: La Bamba; Bluebirds over the Mountain; Hi-Tone; Framed; We Belong Together; and Dooby-Dooby-Wah.
Ricardo “Richie Valens” Valenzuela was born in Pacoima, California on May 13, 1941. He made his debut as a performer in October 1957 and quickly rose to national prominence. However, 17-year-old Ritchie Valens – along with Buddy Holly and the Big Bopper – lost his life in a devastating plane crash, inspiring singer Don McLean's popular 1971 ballad "American Pie," which immortalized February 3, 1959 as "The Day the Music Died", which is also featured on the Vinyl Classics page of this music site.
We thank you for joining us here on the Vinyl Classics feature of the East LA Revue.com internet radio site with your host and DJ, Frankie Firme.

windows media playerSong For My Father - The Horace Silver Quintet

macs or mp3 player Song For My Father - The Horace Silver Quintet

“Song for My Father” is a 1965 album by The Horace Silver Quintet and was released on the Blue Note label. The album was inspired by a trip that Silver had made to Brazil. The cover artwork features a photograph of Silver's father, John Tavares Silva, to whom the title song was dedicated. "My mother was of Irish and African descent, my father of Portuguese origin", Silver recalls in the liner notes, "He was born on the island of Maio, one of the Cape Verde Islands." For more information about this album, check Wikipedia at this link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Song_for_My_Father.


A jazz standard, "Song for My Father" is here in its original Bossa Nova form. The song has had a noticeable impact in pop music. The opening bass piano notes were borrowed by Steely Dan for their song "Rikki Don't Lose That Number", while the opening horn riff was borrowed by Stevie Wonder for his song "Don't You Worry 'Bout a Thing". Earth Wind & Fire also borrowed the opening bass notes for their song Clover. This is one of Blue Note's greatest mainstream hard bop recording.  "Song for My Father" is Horace Silver's signature LP and the peak of a discography already studded with classics. All songs by H. Silver accept one, “The Kicker”.
 Side 1 contains "Song for My Father" – 7:17; "The Natives Are Restless Tonight" – 6:09; and  "Calcutta Cutie" – 8:31, We turn the record over and continue Side 2 with “Que Pasa" – 7:47; "The Kicker" (Joe Henderson) – 5:26; and "Lonely Woman" – 7:02". This album was recorded on October 31, 1963 (#3, 6, 7, 8); January 28, 1964 (#9-10); and October 26, 1964 (#1, 2, 4, 5).

windows media playerCHICAGO IX - Greatest Hits

macs or mp3 player CHICAGO IX - Greatest Hits

Welcome to East LA Revue.com's VINYL CLASSICS segment with your host DJ Sapo. We proudly present a milestone greatest hits album Chicago IX Chicago’s Greatest Hits. Released in 1975 (Columbia) it encapsulates the sound of Chicago at their most impressive phase of musical  versatility that along with the Eagles greatest hits album set the bar for “best of” vinyl collections that few if any American rock acts match song for song.
On Side One we have: 25 Or 6 To 4; Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is; Colour My World; Just You ‘n’ Me; Saturday In The Park; and Feeling Stronger Every Day. On Side Two: Make Me Smile (radio edit); Wishing You Were Here; Call on Me; (I’ve Been) Searching So Long; and Beginnings (radio edit).
Versatile is an understatement when one speaks of Chicago who bridged and transcended from AM top thirty hit makers to FM album oriented rock artists. They were the complete package and then some. Chicago burst onto the music scene in the late 1960s and were initially referred to them as Chicago Transit Authority. Like Tower Of Power their sound was defined by a fierce brass and horn section that very much set the tone of their innovative “classical” musical arrangements in their first few albums which after their debut were sequentially numbered by a Roman numeral. Their initial creative energy spawned from a social political angst was reflected in their socially conscious lyricism. During the 1970s they progressed with a sound that effortlessly blended elements of rock, classical, jazz and blues to create a contemporary brand of popular music tinged with a seriousness that reverberated with music audiences. Chicago IX is significant in that it represents Chicago’s original collective creativity as a band.
 The unmistakable vocals of Terry Kath, Robert Lamn and Peter Cetera accompanied by a stellar brass ensemble were undeniable core features that distinguished them from other American rock bands of their generation. Tragically, with the death of lead guitarist Terry Kath after Chicago XI the group would enter the 1980s with not quite the same ferocity as a decade earlier. Although with Peter Cetera’s soft balled vocal style they would continue to enjoy some commercial success and with many subsequent personnel changes they eventually became far removed from their signature sound that is clearly exemplified in this great collection. 
Thank you for listening to our presentation of Chicago IX Chicago’s Greatest Hits and on behalf of your host Sapo and the entire East LA Revue.com DJ line-up and staff for logging on to our VINYL CLASSICS program and keep listening as we continue to play albums in their entirety and hosted by your favorite DJ.

windows media playerAmerican Pie by Don McLean

macs or mp3 player American Pie by Don McLean

Welcome to EastLARrevue.com's Vinyl Classic segment with your host DJ Sapo. On this segment we present in its entirety AMERICAN PIE by the 1970s popular folk rock artist Don McLean. One Side: 1. American Pie; 2. Till Tomorrow; 3. Vincent; and 4. Crossroads. On Side 2: 1. Winter wood; 2. Empty Chairs; 3. Everybody Loves Me Baby; 4. Sister Fatima; 5. The Grave; and 6, Babylon.
The title track would become one of the most recognizable tunes in rock history and very much bridged one musical era to the next as the country moved from the social turbulence of the 1960s to the political conscientious yet socially progressive 1970s. McLean kicked off the decade with an uplifting bittersweet homage to an America that had come to pass. McLean metaphorically weaved together a poetic social commentary that embodied a “Happy Days” aspect of America that succumbed to virulent political and social forces that changed the nation and its music. Released on the United Artists label in 1971, the minstrel-like aura of AMERICAN PIE reflected a musical “maturity and quality” of the burgeoning music industry that now came to respect and acknowledge the singer songwriter.  In this post Beatles moment, the era of the concept album was also very much in vogue. Mclean as an artist etched his own musical legacy within this progressively changing musical landscape where popular music would in the ensuing decade transcend from the top 30 AM genre into the fledgling musically sophisticated FM format.  The lengthy recording time of its title track signified that new direction for recorded music and radio programming. Don McLean at the time could probably not have fathomed the long-term cultural influence that his elegy of Americana would have in the generations to come. Besides remakes of the title song by the likes of Madonna and a satirical “Star Wars” spoof of the song by Weird Al Yankovic, its title also spawned and popularized a Hollywood movie franchise. It was a number one Billboard album and spawned two number one (the title track and Vincent) hits. The lead off song had all the elements that reflected the ever changing social and political fervor of a post 1950s America that began with the “the day the music died” in reference to the tragic death of Buddy Holly, Richie Valens, and the JP “Big Bopper” Richardson in 1959.  AMERICAN PIE as a record should be remembered as historically significant as it marked the dawn of a music era that set a brand new standard in artistry and achievement for the changing American rock scene. 
Thank you for listening to our presentation of AMERICAN PIE by Don McLean and on behalf of your host Sapo and the entire Eastlarevue.com staff for logging on to our Vinyl Classics program and keep listening as we continue to play albums in their entirety and hosted by your favorite DJ.

windows media playerThe Kennedy Dream - Oliver Nelson

macs or mp3 player The Kennedy Dream - Oliver Nelson

A great album that I was fortunate to find in 1968. This is Impulse records first pressing in the United States and it is also the Promotional Copy. It is a favorite LP and I hope you enjoy the music and concept. The record is in mint condition with very little surface noise. I think you will enjoy the tonality and fidelity that comes from vinyl recordings. It is a richer and deeper sound. This long-playing record album was recently released on Compact Disc format.  After the death of JFK in 1963, Oliver Nelson penned this extremely strong tribute to the man by Nelson that is filled with some of his strongest writing of the time. The musical notes are more devoted to Kennedy’s memory and Nelson’s genius and features a striking use of strings against jazz solo instrumentations with a sense of hope for positive change as Kennedy once hoped for - The Kennedy Dream is a remarkable work from a period when orchestral jazz was not that common. It is as much a musical tribute to the presidential legacy of John Fitzgerald Kennedy as it is a documented tribute to the beautiful musical legacy of Oliver Edward Nelson.
To get an idea of just how obscure some of these Originals releases are, take the Oliver Nelson (1932-1975) album The Kennedy Dream: a Musical Tribute to John Fitzgerald Kennedy was originally released in 1967 by the Impulse Records label. Even in 1967, hardly anyone knew the record existed. These days, Oliver Nelson’s name barely registers. Sadly, he does not get the recognition he so richly deserves.

The recording was made over two days in February 1967, with a cast of New York’s finest session men, including Snooky Young on trumpet, Jerome Richardson and Jerry Dodgion on reeds, Phil Woods on alto sax (and solos), Phil Bodner on English horn, Danny Bank on bass clarinet, Don Butterfield on tuba, Hank Jones on piano and harpsichord, George Duvivier on bass and Grady Tate on drums.
The recordings were in the following order:  Day in Dallas (Oliver Nelson) - 3:37, The Rights of All (Oliver Nelson) - 3:56, Tolerance (Oliver Nelson) - 3:20, Jacqueline (Oliver Nelson) - 2:12, John Kennedy Memorial Waltz (George David Weiss) - 3:17, A Genuine Peace (Oliver Nelson) - 2:35, Let the Word Go Forth (Oliver Nelson) - 6:13, The Artists' Rightful Place aka Patterns for Orchestra)  (Oliver Nelson) - 3:26             Producer: Bob Thiele Engineer: Bob Arnold.

windows media playerThick as a Brick - Jethro Tull

macs or mp3 player Thick as a Brick - Jethro Tull

Welcome to the VINYL CLASSICS feature here on the East LA Revue.com internet radio site. This is Steven Chavez and I am here to present the album THICK AS A BRICK by the British progressive rock band, Jethro Tull. This is their fifth studio album and it is on the Chrysalis, Reprise Records label. The long-playing record album includes only one song which spans the entire album. I was recorded December 1971 at Morgan Studios, London and released 10 March 1972.
Thick as a Brick was deliberately crafted in the style of a concept album. The original packaging, designed like a newspaper, claims the album to be a musical adaptation of an epic poem by a (fictional) 8-year-old boy, though the lyrics were actually written by the band's front-man, Ian Anderson. Thick as a Brick was Tull's first deep progressive rock offering, coming four years after the release of their first album. The epic album is notable for its many musical themes, time signature changes and tempo shifts--all of which were features of the progressive rock scene which was emerging during the 1970’s. Anderson also stated in that interview that "the album was a spoof to the albums of Yes and Emerson, Lake & Palmer. The formula was successful, and the album reached number one on the charts in the United States.
Jethro Tull is comprised of Ian Anderson (flute, voice), Martin Barre (electric guitar), John Evan (piano), Jeffrey Hammond-Hammond (Bass guitar) and Barriemore Barlow (drums).
Beginning in March 1972, the band performed the entire album on tour for nearly a year. The performances grew in length to about 90 minutes, as the original piece was expanded with additional instrumental interludes and the instrumentals "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen" and "Bouree. 
In June 1972, I returned back to Los Angeles, CA with my freedom papers (honorable discharge) in hand after four years of military duty. A good friend bought me a ticket to the Jethro Tull concert at the Forum in Inglewood, where Jethro Tull performed this song. I had never heard of this band and never heard this song, until that evening. I dedicate this VINYL CLASSICS show to that memory and to the fond memory of Art Jaramillo de East Los Angeles, CA.

macs or mp3 player Wrapped Tight - Coleman Hawkins

Hello and welcome the East LA Revue.com internet radio site and the VINYL CLASSICS feature. We play vinyl records and feature vinyl discs in their entirety, and we don’t skip one single groove. This is Steven Chavez here to present an Extended Play 33.3 rpm “mini-album” titled “WRAPPED TIGHT” by Coleman Hawkins. This EP was released on the Impulse Records label in 1966. It was recorded February 22 and March1, 1965 in Stereo.
On Side One: WRAPPED TIGHT 3:28; OUT OF NOWHERE 2:54; and RED ROSES FOR A BLUE LADY 2:24. We flip the record over for Side Two, with: MARCHETA 3:06; AND I STILL LOVE YOU 3:10; and BEAN’S PLACE 2:54. The musical credits for this record are: Bass– Buddy Catlett; Drums– Eddie Locke; Piano– Barry Harris; Saxophone [Tenor]– Coleman Hawkins; Trombone– Urbie Green; Trumpet– Bill Berry, Snooky Young. It was producer by Bob Thiele.
In the 1960s and 1970s, record companies released extended play (EP) versions of long play (LP) albums for use in jukeboxes. These were commonly known as "compact 33s" or "little LPs." They played at 33⅓ rpm, were pressed on 7-inch vinyl and frequently had as many as six songs. What made them EP-like was the fact that some songs were omitted for time purposes, and the tracks deemed the most popular were left on. Unlike most EPs before them, and most 7-inch vinyl in general (pre-1970s), these were issued in stereo.
Thank you for stopping by the East LA Revue.com internet radio site, and especially to the VINYL CLASSICS feature. We encourage everyone to check out the other Vinyl features on this page and the DJ podcasts on the HOME page. If you like what you hear or have a favorite record that you may long to hear, please drop us a line on our Guest Book page. We would love to hear from you.

macs or mp3 player Down Here On The Ground - Wes Montgomery

Greetings and welcome to the VINYL CLASSICS feature, found exclusively on the East LA Revue.com internet radio site. This is Steven Chavez, here to present an Extended Play 33 1/3 RPM (revolutions per minute) 7” vinyl record by Wes Montgomery titled “DOWN HERE ON THE GROUND”.  This studio album by Wes was recorded December 20–26, 1968 at Van Gelder Studio, Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey for the A&M Records label and is a Creed Taylor production. It was released in the same year.
The song track listing for this EP is, on Side 1: "WIND SONG" (Dave Alpert, Nick Ceroli, Neil Larsen, John Pisano, Paul Francis Webster); "GEORGIA ON MY MIND" (Hoagy Carmichael, Stuart Gorrell), and "DOWN HERE ON THE GROUND" (Lalo Schifrin, Gale Garnett) – 3:42. On Side 2 we have: "GOING ON TO DETROIT" (Montgomery) – 3:38; and “I SAY A LITTLE PRAYER" (Burt Bacharach, Hal David) – 3:18.
Jazz fans generally hated Wes' hit A&M albums, but the record has held up well over the years. It reached number one on the Billboard Jazz album chart and number 4 on the R&B chart. It also reached number 38 on the Billboard 200. The title song "DOWN HERE ON THE GROUND" is Montgomery's version of the theme song from the movie "Cool Hand Luke" by Lalo Schifrin. On the plus side, the legendary guitarist was allowed to collaborate with great musicians on this record. While the small orchestral trappings never dominate this session, the seeds for a more grandiose style of music had been planted.
The musicians include: Wes Montgomery – guitar; Herbie Hancock – piano; Ron Carter – bass; Grady Tate – drums;  Ray Barretto – percussion; Hubert Laws – flute, oboe; George Marge – flute, oboe; Romeo Penque – flute, oboe; Bobby Rosengarden – percussion; Mike Mainieri – vibraphone; Gene Orloff – violin; Raoul Poliakin – violin; George Ricci – cello; Emanuel Vardi – viola.
John Leslie "Wes" Montgomery (March 6, 1923 – June 15, 1968) was an American jazz guitarist. He is widely considered one of the major jazz guitarists, emerging after such famous figures as Django Reinhardt and Charlie Christian and influencing countless others, including Grant Green, Pat Martino, George Benson, Kenny Burrell, and Jimi Hendrix.

macs or mp3 player FATS ON FIRE EP - Fats Domino

Greetings and welcome to the Vinyl Classics here on the East LA Revue.com internet radio site. Steven Chavez is here to present an Extended-Play, Seven inch, 33 1/3 RPM record that was on the ABC Paramount Records label EP-ABCS 479. The title is “FATS ON FIRE” by Fats Domino. It was recorded in Stereo and released in 1967. These EP’s were very popular in the 1960’s and called “mini albums” or “juke box” albums by the buying public. The covers were usually the same cover that was on the standard 12” long-playing (LP) record albums of the time.
These Extended-Play vinyl records had three songs on each side. The songs on Side 1 are: I DON’T WANT TO SET THE WORLD ON FIRE; OLD MAN TROUBLES; and LOVE ME. We continue to the other side with: YOU KNOW I MISS YOU; THE FAT MAN; and VALLEY OF TEARS.
Antoine Dominique "Fats" Domino Jr. (born February 26, 1928) is an American R&B and rock and roll pianist and singer-songwriter. He was born and raised in the lower Ninth Ward in New Orleans, Louisiana. Domino is French Creole and Creole was his first language. Fats released five gold (million-copy-selling) records before 1955. Domino also had 35 Top 40 American hits and has a music style based on traditional R&B ensembles of bass, piano, electric guitar, drums, and saxophone. Fats Domino performed "Blueberry Hill" on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1956. Domino first attracted national attention with "The Fat Man" in 1949 on Imperial Records. This EP contains the second version of that song with a harmonica filling in the “wah wahs” by Fats, on the first version.

windows media player Last American Concert Alive and Flowing from the Crater of the Sun Maui Hawaii

macs or mp3 player Last American Concert Alive and Flowing from the Crater of the Sun Maui Hawaii

Hello and welcome to the Vinyl Classics show here on the East LA Revue.com Internet Radio site. This is your host, La Traviesa. On this show we have a very special album that we will play for you. The record album is a bootleg on the Jupiter Record label. It was recorded July 30, 1970 and it was released in the USA that same year. The title is “Last American Concert – Alive and Flowing from the Crater of the Sun Maui Hawaii” and is a recording of the band Cry of Love. The members of this band included the original Experience Band: Jimi Hendrix (Guitar, Vocals), Billy Cox (Bass); Mitch Mitchell (Drums). This was recorded just before Jimi Hendrix untimely death on September 18, 1970 in England. . . . . *Also note that this Maui concert was not in fact Hendrix's last American Concert as he played at the Honolulu International Centre, Hawaii the following night on August 1st - which was the last time he played on American soil.
According to Jupiter Records, this bootleg was recorded live in Maui, HI and contains Jimi Hendrix's last performance in the U.S. It is definitely one of the best-sounding Hendrix bootlegs that surfaced in the 1970s. Obviously a soundboard recording, “Last American Concert” boasts generally excellent stereo sound and explosive performances of "Purple Haze", "Voodoo Chile", "Foxy Lady", "Red House", and other gems. This album is in excellent condition and extremely rare. Our station manager remembers buying this used LP for $5 at the Rainbow Records store in Silver Lake, CA in 1975. This record has been played less than five times until this experience, when we transferred the analog recording from the original vinyl source to digital leaving the surface noise intact for that warm and full analog sound.
The tracks are on Side I include: INTERVIEW with Jimi Hendrix (2:10), HEY BABY (New Rising Sun) / IN FROM THE STORM (5:35); HEAR MY TRAIN a’COMING (5:25); VOODO CHILD (5:20) and MAUI SUNSET (2:40). We continue to Side 2 with: FOXY LADY (4:45); RED HOUSE (6:45); EZ RIDER (4:30); and we end with PURPLE HAZE (4:20).
James Marshall Hendrix (born Johnny Allen Hendrix; November 27, 1942 – September 18, 1970) was an American musician, singer and songwriter. Despite a limited mainstream exposure of four years, he is widely considered to have been the greatest electric guitarist in the history of popular music, and one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century. Following success in Europe with his band the Jimi Hendrix Experience, he achieved fame in the United States after his 1967 performance at the Monterey Pop Festival. Later, he headlined the Woodstock Festival in 1969 and the Isle of Wight Festival in 1970.

Welcome music lovers to another Vinyl Classics presentation, a feature heard exclusively right here on the East LA Revue.com internet radio site. We love vinyl analog recordings for their beautiful album cover artwork; for the historic recordings and the information about the music and the musicians; and of course for that superior sound quality and the full-range tone fidelity found only on vinyl. You can certainly hear the difference.
 
We went searching in our music vaults and found a nearly forgotten release from May 1967. This is a live recording on the King Record label titled “James Brown Live at the Garden”. This album was actually recorded over several performances in January 1967 at The Latin Club in Cherry Hill, New Jersey - then edited to highlight the show's best moments. Special mention must go to Alfred "Pee Wee" Ellis, holding it all together from the bandstand.
James Joseph Brown (May 3, 1933 – December 25, 2006) was an American singer, songwriter, musician, and recording artist. He is the originator of funk music and is a major figure of 20th century popular music and dance. In 1986, he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and in 2000 into the Songwriters Hall of Fame. James Brown is buried in Beech Island, South Carolina.

windows media playerEric Burdon Declares War

macs or mp3 player Eric Burdon Declares War

“Eric Burdon Declares "War" was the first of two original albums by eclectic funk band Eric Burdon and War, recorded January 2 – 4, 1970 in San Francisco and released in the USA on the MGM Records in April 1970. It peaked at number 18 on record charts in the USA, number 50 in the UK, and number 7 in Australia. The back cover includes this declaration: "We the People have declared War against the People for the right to love each other". The album received a gold record award.
In 1981, LA Records (producer Jerry Goldstein's own label) reissued the album under the title Spill the Wine. It has also been reissued under its original title on CD by Avenue / Rhino Records. It is referred to as "The Fingers LP" or even the "Bay of Pigs". War's first (for the United Artists label) is clearly a top 100 record in any poll on the strength of the brilliant "Fidel's Fantasy" alone.
From the gun blast in the single "Sun Oh Son" to the dark observation of Fidel Castro in the epic "Fidel's Fantasy", War's 1971 release enters the post-Eric (The Animals) Burdon era with a no-holds-barred approach in the social ring. "War Drums" has to be considered as harsh a statement as any in the entertainment world concerning the Vietnam conflict. Charles Miller leaves the hair standing on your neck from it. Then Lee Oskar calms it back down with his harmonica in the classic "Vibeka".

Although light years away from the commercial success of the mega-selling "Why Can't We Be Friends?” War's first offering without Eric Burdon has to be considered a huge achievement given the circumstances involved. Following up the smash hit "Spill The Wine" without your lead singer couldn't have been an easy task. War offer up "three fingers and a smile" here. Even if you're a casual War fan, this one is not to be missed. This is where the War started all over again.
All tracks are written by War (Papa Dee Allen, Harold Brown, Eric Burdon, B.B. Dickerson, Lonnie Jordan, Charles Miller, Lee Oskar, and Howard E. Scott) except where noted. The song track is, Side 1 The Vision of Rassan with Dedication" – 2:33; Roll On Kirk – 5:07; Tobacco Road (John D. Loudermilk) – 3:47; I Have A Dream – 6:39. We flip the record over to Side 2 for Spill the Wine – 4:38; Blues for Memphis Slim; Birth - 1:31; Mother Earth (Peter Chatman) – 2:46; Mr. Charlie – 3:05; Danish Pastry – 3:18; Mother Earth (Chatman) – 2:28; You're No Stranger – 1:55. The musical credits are Harold Brown – drums; Dee Allen – conga, percussion; BB Dickerson – bass, vocal; Howard Scott – guitar, vocal; Lee Oskar – harmonica; Charles Miller – tenor sax, flute; Lonnie Jordan – organ, piano; and Eric Burdon – lead vocals. The album was produced by Jerry Goldstein.

macs or mp3 player Le Jazz Hot: par Django Reinhardt et Q.H.C.F

We thank you for joining us at the Vinyl Classics feature here at the East LA Revue.com Internet Radio site. We are proud to present this 1954 10 inch long-playing vinyl record. The Angel Record label’s release titled “Le Jazz Hot: par Django Reinhardt et Q.H.C.F.” is a Microgroove High Fidelity (Hi Fi) recording. The artists include Django Reinhardt, Stepane Grappelli, and Quintet Le Jazz Hot de France. The songs include Festival 48, Nuages, Giseaux des Iles, Ol’ Man River, Dinette, My Serenade, Diminushing, and Rythme Futur.


Jean "Django" Reinhardt; 23 January 1910 - 16 May 1953) was a pioneering virtuoso jazz guitarist and composer. Born into a family of Romanian gypsies and grew up playing conventional gypsy music on both violin and guitar. When he was 18 and 19 two events occurred which led him away from the routine life of a gypsy musician. His left hand was so badly burned when an overturned kerosene lamp set his trailer on fire (he was 18) that the fourth and fifth fingers of the hand became practically useless. No longer able to finger his violin, he abandoned it and patiently set about devising a method of reaching the frets on his guitar with his remaining fingers.


A year later, burrowing through the junk heaps of the Orlean flea market, he found a Louis Armstrong recording of “Dallas Blues”. This led him into jazz and he was soon sitting in with various jazz musicians around Paris who were as much amazed by his mastery of the essence of hot jazz as they were by his dexterity despite his injured fingers.
Reinhardt invented an entirely new style of jazz guitar technique (sometimes called 'hot' jazz guitar). With violinist Stephane Grappelli, he co-founded the Quintette du Hot Club de France, one of the most original bands in the history of recorded jazz.  Reinhardt's most popular compositions have become jazz standards.


This is a very rare 58 year old record that we are fortunate to share with you. This is Frankie Firme asking that you keep a song and prayer in your heart for our brave Men and Women in the armed forces, who may be serving away from home. We also recognized the sacrifices that the families endure and ask for your prayers and support for all. This feature was coproduced by Frank Arzaga and Steven Chavez.

Barbara Ann ("Bobbi") Humphrey (born April 25, 1950) is an American jazz flautist and singer. She was born in Marlin, Texas, and raised in Dallas. Her flute training included classical and jazz styles in high school. She continued her studies at Texas Southern University and Southern Methodist University. Dizzy Gillespie saw Humphrey play at a talent contest at Southern Methodist, and inspired her to pursue a musical career in New York City. She followed his advice, getting her first big break performing at the Apollo Theatre on Amateur Night. She eventually began playing regularly throughout the city, including a gig with Duke Ellington.

Guitarist George Benson and Humphrey were guest musicians on Humphrey's friend Stevie Wonder's single "Another Star" from his Songs in the Key of Life (1976) album. In 1976, she was named Best Female Instrumentalist by Billboard. In 1994 Humphrey launched her label, Paradise Sounds Records, releasing Passion Flute, which continues to be one of her best-selling recordings.

macs or mp3 player Mercy Mercy Mercy - Cannonball Adderley Quintet

Greetings and welcome to another Vinyl Classic here on the East LA Revue.com internet jukebox, where we feature the complete long –playing album without interruption. This is Tom Morin our host for this presentation. I have selected an LP from 1966 titled “Mercy, Mercy, Mercy! Live at 'The Club”. It was released on the Capitol Records label on October 20, 1966, by The Cannonball Adderley Quintet with Julian "Cannonball" Adderley on Alto Saxophone; his brother Nat Adderley  on Cornet;  Joe Zawinul on Piano and Wurlitzer electric piano; Victor Gaskin on Bass; and Roy McCurdy on drums.  Though the original liner notes state that it was recorded at the Club DeLisa in Chicago, it was actually recorded at Capitol's Hollywood studio with an invited audience and an open bar. On this album, Joe Zawinul played a Wurlitzer electric piano; however, subsequent live performances saw him taking up the new and mellower-sounding Fender Rhodes instrument.
The title track from this album became a surprise hit, reaching #11 on the Billboard charts, and has been re-recorded numerous times (usually with lyrics added), perhaps most successfully by The Buckinghams in 1967. The track listing includes "Fun" (Nat Adderley) – 8:26, "Games" (N. Adderley) – 7:19, "Mercy, Mercy, Mercy" (Joe Zawinul) – 5:10, "Sticks" (Cannonball Adderley) – 3:54, "Hippodelphia" (Zawinul) – 5:49, and "Sack O' Woe" (C. Adderley) – 10:29.

Greetings and welcome to the VINYL CLASSICS feature here on the East LA Revue.com internet radio site. This is your Soul-Pilot, and I will be your DJ and host for this presentation of “The Singles: 1969–1973”. This is a long-playing record album by the brother/sister pop duo Richard/Karen Carpenter and it became one of the best-selling albums of the 1970s. It has been certified 8× platinum in the U.S. alone. In the UK, the album reached #1 for 17 (non-consecutive) weeks. This album was released November 1973 and was titled The Singles by Richard Carpenter to replace the term “The Greatest Hits” because he thought the tern was over used. This is one of our all-time favorites and we hope you enjoy The Carpenters from the original analog source. We believe that the tone and fidelity are clearer and much more Stereophonic than the condensed disc (CD) sound of today’s product.
The songs on this vinyl long-playing record album are on Side 1: We’ve Only Just Begun; Top of the World; Ticket to Ride; Superstar; Rainy Days and Mondays (always get me down); and Goodbye to Love. Side Two has: Yesterday Once More; It’s Going to Take Some Time; Sing; For All We Know; Hurting Each Other; and Close to You.

macs or mp3 player LET IT BE - The Beatles

Greetings and welcome to another VINYL CLASSIC feature here on the East LA Revue.com, where we play the entire selected vinyl disc without interruption, except to flip the record over to the other side. We have selected LET IT BE by The Beatles. This record was released May 8, 1970 off the Apple Record label in stereo. Even though this was the last album released by the Beatles, it was recorded in 1968 – 1970 and intended to be released before the 1969 release of Abbey Road album. This was the only Beatles album to occasion negative, even hostile reviews.  The main problem was that the material wasn't uniformly strong and that the Beatles themselves were in lousy moods due to intergroup tension. As flawed and bumpy as it is, it's an album well worth having.
This is the British import Apple Record release with Two of Us, Dig a Pony, Across the Universe, I Me Mine, Dig It, Let It Be, and Maggie Mae on Side 1. On the flip Side 2, we have I’ve Got a Feeling, One after 909, The Long and Winding Road, For You Blue, and Get Back. The songs were recorded at the EMI, Apple or Twickenham studios in England.
The recording and production of this album is well documented in the short feature film titled LET IT BE. This is the film with the Beatles playing/recording “live” on the roof-top at Apple Studios. We hope that you enjoyed this VINYL CLASSIC presentation of the last album released as The Beatles. The album is an import and usually a better fidelity and tone quality than the domestic productions. This is another example of the superior sound quality of the analog vinyl recordings. We hope you enjoy.

macs or mp3 player Godfrey presents 16 Successful Sounds

Hello around the world and welcome to another VINYL CLASSICS exclusively featured on the East LA Revue.com internet radio site. On this show we are presenting a long-playing record album that was released in 1968 on the Flashback Record label of Los Angeles, CA. This is one of several of Godfrey Kerr’s production’s  on his own label, titled “Godfrey presents: 16 SUCCESSFUL SOUNDS”. It was electronically re-recorded to simulate stereo. This compilation included songs courtesy of several local record labels, including Air Town, C-Ray. Corby, Dottie, Double Shot, Faro, M & M, Rampart, Vault, and Whittier Record companies. Many of these songs were regional hits and some were on the national charts.
The songs on Side One are; LAND OF 1000 DANCES by Cannibal and the Headhunters; IT’LL NEVER BE OVER FOR ME by Thee Midniters; YOU WERE WRONG by ZZ Hill; PSYCHOTIC REACTION by The Count Five; LET’S GET TOGETHER SOON by Carol Hughes; HIGH ON A HILL by Scott English; LAUGH LAUGH by The Beau Brummels; and UNLUCKY GIRL by Chris Teller.   On Side Two is: THE TOWN I LIVE IN by McKinley Mitchell; LA LA LA LA LA by The Blendells; HERE’S A HEART by The Diplomats; TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE by The Casinos; FARMER JON by The Premiers; TEARS BIG A CANTALOUPES by Richard “Dimples” Fields; I NEED SOMEONE by The Ambertones; and DOWN WHITTIER BLVD by Godfrey Kerr.
This is a righteous record album and it gives us a slice of Americana from the mid-sixties from the Los Angeles area. I was there and can remember this album and all of the great songs from the day.  For more information on Godfrey Kerr, check-out Guy Aversa’s site and information at this link @ http://wwwyoufoundthateastsidesoundcom.blogspot.com/search/label/ABOUT%20THIS%20SITE   please check the other VINYL CLASSIC offerings and the HOME page for our DJ podcasts with many new shows weekly.
Until next show my friends, this is Frankie Firme saying so long for now. Keep a prayer in your hearts and music in your homes. God bless our troops; you have not been forgotten. We petition for your safe return home. And to all of our listeners out there,  Ay Te Watcho.
