(RCA - Special Collector´s Edition) 10 tracks Mono - may be played on either monaural or stereophonic phonographs - few copies The sensational Astronauts, RCA Victor´s five-man space team that orbits at 33 1/2 rpm, have won for themselves an A-OK rating the world over. In this country they have made numerous appearances on network TV—including ´Hullabaloo,´ the top-rated teen show—and theirs is the only group of its kind that has played over 100 universities, performing for concerts and dances. The boys have their own TV program, ´Count Down with the Astronauts,´ which is seen in four major West Coast markets, and there are plans to syndicate the show nationally. Ever since the group´s formation in Boulder, Colorado, the Astronauts have traveled quickly in one direction UP ! Bob Demmon, the oldest of the Astronauts, is the group´s leader. Born in Boulder, Bob can´t remember ever wanting any career other than one in music. He started trumpet lessons in the fifth grade, sang in a choir in junior high school, studied piano, and won six straight blue ribbons at Colorado solo contests during high school. When he started school at the University of Colorado, his mother put four hundred dollars in a bank account for him, and that very afternoon he went to Denver and spent it on a new electric guitar. Bob also managed to keep his college average at a B, and was graduated in 1962 from the University with a Bachelor of Music degree. Rich Fifield plays lead guitar for the Astronauts and does half the up-front singing. Born in Nebraska, Rich too always wanted to be a musician— and made his ´unprofessional´ debut when he was five, singing for ice cream cones at a local malt shop. He made his professional debut in high school, singing with a local combo, and since 1958 (when he was seventeen) , Rich has supported himself as a musician. He studied at Colorado State University, and joined the Astronauts in August of 1961. Of all the Astronauts, Jim Gallagher (youngest of the Astronauts, who are all in their twenties) comes from the most musical family. His father played trumpet for bands in Chicago for about ten years and his mother was a vocalist with the Hal Kemp band, among others. But Jim didn´t always want to be a musician ; until the third grade, he had his heart set on medicine ! By the time he reached eighth grade, drumming ´in any form´ was what he wanted to do— and drumming is what he has done ever since. For the Astronauts, Jim is a one-man percussion section who builds the big beat behind the group´s four twanging guitars. Jim studied at the University of Colorado in Boulder, but left school to join the Astronauts. Dennis Lindsey writes most of the Astronaut´s comedy material, plays guitar, and also displays a unique talent for vocal imitations. A Coloradan born and bred, Dennis studied at the Pasadena Playhouse in California and at the University of Colorado. He enjoys dramatics and has composed music. His spare time is devoted to activities ranging from painting and Spanish guitar playing to hunting, fishing and skiing—favorites of most of this action group. ´I had a lot of ambitions when I was a child,´ says Stormy Patterson, the Astronaut´s bass guitarist. ´First I wanted to own a large ranch, then I wanted to be a movie star.´ Storm began his musical career by learning to play the ukulele when he was ten. He bought his first guitar at thirteen, and at fifteen was playing in his first rock-and-roll band. Storm studied at Colorado State College in Greeley, but left school to play with the Astronauts. He shares the up-front honors with Rich Fifield. The Astronauts, all five, are GO all the way, as this collection of rousing favorites proves.

Memories are the ultimate contradiction. They can warm us on our coldest days - or they can freeze a loved one out of our lives forever. The McCarthy family has a trove of warm memories. Of innocent first kisses. Of sumptuous family meals. Of wondrous lessons learned at the foot of a rocking chair. But they also have had their share of icy ones. Of words that can never be unsaid. Of choices that can never be unmade. Of actions that can never be undone. Following the death of his beloved wife, John McCarthy - Grandpa John - calls his family back home. It is time for them to face the memories they have made, both warm and cold. Only then can they move beyond them and into the future. A rich portrait of a family at a crossroad, The Rockin´ Chair is Steven Manchester’s most heartfelt and emotionally engaging novel to date. If family matters to you, it is a story you must hear.

Ben Folds is an internationally celebrated musician, singer-songwriter and former front man of the alternative rock band Ben Folds Five, beloved for songs such as ‘Brick’, ‘You Don’t Know Me’, ‘Rockin’ the Suburbs’ and ‘The Luckiest’.In A Dream About Lightning Bugs Folds looks back at his life so far in a charming, funny and wise chronicle of his artistic coming of age, infused with the wry observations of a natural storyteller. He opens up about finding his voice as a musician, becoming a rock anti-hero, and hauling a baby grand piano on and off stage for every performance.From growing up in a working class North Carolina childhood amid the race and class tensions that shaped his early songwriting to painful life lessons he learned the hard way, he also ruminates on music in the digital age, the absurdity of life on the road and the challenges of sustaining a multi-decade, multi-faceted career in the music business. A Dream About Lightning Bugs embodies what Folds has been singing about for years: smile like you’ve got nothing to prove, because it hurts to grow up, and life flies by in seconds 1.

Johnny Devlin is a devil-may-care charmer with a sullied past. Stealing cars landed him in jail, but he learned his lesson. The last seven years working in Webster´s Garage have taught him how to work hard and play even harder, but that´s not enough for Lara Valley. Lara grew up on the wrong side of the tracks and is hell-bent on escaping. To get her nursing degree, she works at a dive bar while taking classes at a community college. She has no time for dating - and especially not for Johnny, a playboy who´s too handsome for his own good. Johnny´s always had his eye on the pretty bartender with the rockin´ bod and soul-deep eyes, but she´s rejected him more than once. But that doesn´t mean he won´t come to her aid when trouble strikes. When she asks him on a date to thank him, he can´t say no. And then he´s saying nothing but hell, yes. 1. Language: English.

Various - Blues Before Sunrise

(1996 ´Delmark´) (70:15/13) Eine Benefiz-Veranstaltung für die privat-finanzierte Blues-Radiosendung Steve Cushings. Grundsolider, wenngleich wenig spektakuläre Aufnahmen aus dem ´B.L.U.E.S.´ in Chicago - eine typische Bluesnacht in Chicago For 17 years DJ Steve Cushing has aired Blues Before Sunrise, the ´Blues Heritage Showcase´, over Chicago´s public radio station 91.5FM WBEZ, and for the last six years the rest of the country has also had a chance to hear his show via satellite syndication. Broadcast from midnight to 5 a.m., Blues Before Sunrise has long served an audience that includes loyal home listeners, musicians lounging on break, lovers in their living rooms, cab drivers and other service workers pulling the graveyard, and even teen airwave surfers discovering an entire musical world peopled by cats who were hip before them. Blues Before Sunrise showcases blues as part of a cultural landscape that includes jump and jive, rhythm and blues, swing, doo wop, gospel, comedy, and recitation, and never is the music presented as kitsch or retro fashion in the way that some music has been exploited and trivialized. For Cushing the blues is a living African-American tradition with deep roots. As a musician himself bearing substantial credentials with Magic Slim and The Teardrops, the Lee Jackson band and Smokey Smothers and The Ice Cream Men, Steve Cushing numbers among his friends and closest associates the artists on this recording-fellow musicians to whom this is a vital, thriving music as well as a means of making a living. Now gone independent and seeking permanent sponsors, Blues Before Sunrise held a benefit concert at Chicago´s B.L.U.E.S. on October 20, 1996 to purchase satellite time to keep the show on the air. The packed-to-the-doors fund-raiser featured artists Billy Boy Arnold, John Brim, Jimmie Lee Robinson, Taildragger, Big Wheeler, Jimmy Burns, Lurrie Bell, Willie Buck, Lester Davenport, Dave Myers, Sammy Fender and others&emdash;each an extraordinary practitioner of Chicago blues and together a full-credit, higher education history lesson in the blues. The portion of the show preserved on this CD is hair-bristling proof of among other things the constancy of the post-war sound and of the vitality of the ever-fruitful Chicago scene. Vocalist and harp player Big Wheeler leads off backed by Rockin´ Johnny Burgin, Dave Waldman and Cushing, as he was on his 1993 Delmark release Bone Orchard (Delmark 661), performing three original compositions solidly in the musical style of his other two selections, Muddy´s ´I´m Ready´ and Little Walter´s ´Got To Go.´ Gary, Indiana native John Brim reprises four of his now-classic Chess sides supported by some of the original Ice Cream Men (named by Illinois Slim when they played behind Otis ´Big Smokey´ Smothers who was one, and only coincidently also the name of one of Brim´s numbers) Cushing, Dave Waldman, Slim (Tom Morris), and Sho Komiya on bass, and on the last cut, Martin Lange on harp. Billy Boy Arnold still sounds like the young man he was when he waxed classic 45s ´Ain´t Got You´ and ´I Wish You Would´ in the mid-1950s. ´Streetwise Advisor´, a sly paean to the Bronzeville patter of his youth, is followed by a rock-the-house-down musical pastiche that begins as ´Stormy Monday´ and leads into a medley of verses from his mentor Sonny Boy (John Lee) Williamson. Johnny Burgin and The Lazy Boys provide crack period back-up with a contemporary freshness behind both Arnold and Jimmy Burns (they were also the studio band in Burn´s recent release Leaving Here Walking (Delmark 694) and they appear with him weekly at Smoke Daddy´s). Burns makes Jimmy Rogers´ ´You´re The One´ sound brand new, then closes out in thrilling fashion with the soulful, minor-key title track to his CD, a fitting end that effortlessly stretches the blues boundaries. These musicians (all of them heard regularly on Blues Before Sunrise) aren´t ´revival´ acts. They´re out there every day playing music that would never occur to them as being ´old´ or ´retro´ but instead is part of an ongoing cultural tradition. Put this platter on and spin your own private Chicago blues festival featuring some of the best current practitioners of the genre, courtesy of Blues Before Sunrise and Delmark Records. Then go out and see them live. And afterwards, tune in to the show. And may the sun never set on Blues Before Sunrise, or the Chicago Blues. --Justin O´Brien
