LIVE24SEVEN // Motoring, Sport & Entertainment B E V B E VAN’ S - CD P I C K S AUGUS T 2 0 1 7


Bev Bevan shares four of his favorite CD’s for our listening pleasure, enjoy the July fab four...


The August fab four...


Emerson, Lake & Palmer – Works Volume 2 (BMG) Works Volume 2, a compilation first released in November 1977, offers another rich seam of ELP songs and instrumental performances. Among the 19 tracks on CD disc one are Keith Emerson's raucous piano outings Barrelhouse Shakedown and hit single Honky Tonk Train Blues. They complement Greg Lake's perennial hit I Believe In Father Christmas and Carl Palmer's dramatic The Enemy God among the highlights of their contributions.


CD two has atmospheric live performances recorded during the band's concert at the Olympic Stadium in Montreal, Canada in August 1977, including renditions of Fanfare For The Common Man, Knife Edge, Pictures At An Exhibition and the third movement of Keith Emerson's Piano Concerto.


All tracks are remastered from the original tapes, capturing ELP at their peak.


Dickett Betts and Great Southern – Southern Rock Jam (Float) Southern Rock Jam is a single CD ‘Best Of’ compilation that collects the cream of Dickey Betts' recordings with his band Great Southern, which he convened after his acrimonious split with The Allman Brothers in the mid-70s. Great Southern saw Betts explore at times a more thoughtful and contemplative side of his creativity, recording two albums with the band for Arista Records. It's an underrated period in Dickey Betts' musical journey and in the track Atlanta's Burning Down, an American Civil War historical piece written by Billy Ray Reynolds, he essays a song which ranks with the best of Robbie Robertson's of The Band, in its sense of Southern Gothic narrative. Other highlights include Sweet Virginia, Dealing With The Devil and Run Gypsy Run.


Jon Savage’s 1967 – The Year Pop Divided (ACE) Jon Savage follows up last year's 1966 set with a similarly packaged double CD anthology of hits and rarities from 1967. Now acknowledged as the year of Flower Power, 1967 was the year that pop music got divided; the year when the British singles charts suddenly revealed a vacuum that, in March 1967, was filled by a top ten that included Engelbert Humperdinck, Petula Clark, Harry Secombe, Vince Hill and The Seekers. Thankfully none of those records are included on this fine compilation. 1967 was also the first year that LP sales overtook sales of 45 rpm singles. In August 1967 Pirate radio stations were outlawed and in September the BBC launched Radio 1 (with my old band The Move being the first to be heard on Tony Blackburn's morning show, with Flowers In The Rain).


There are so many great tracks here to enjoy listening to again, including So You Want To Be A Rock'n'Roll Star by The Byrds; I'm A Man from B'ham's Spencer Davis Group; The Beat Goes On by Sonny and Cher; Take Me In Your Arms And Love Me by Gladys Knight and The Pips; and Show Me by Joe Tex. You can also enjoy Groovin' by The Young Rascals; Soul Finger by The Bar Kays; Respect from Aretha Franklin; Reflections by Diana Ross and The Supremes; Susannah's Still Alive by Dave Davies; and I Can Hear The Grass Grow by The Move.


Nothing But A House Party – The Birth of the Philly Sound 1967-1971 (KENT) For the whole of the seventies , the Philly Sound was a leading and immediately identifiable component of black American music. A crack team of producers, songwriters and session men raised awareness of Philadelphia soul to a worldwide level. Many of the artists featured here on this collection played an important role in the development of the Philly Sound. Here you will find some fine tracks from the late 1960s and early 1970s – before the Philadelphia Sound went international .


Standout tracks include You've Been Untrue by The Delphonics; Never Give You Up by Jerry Butler; My Balloon's Going Up by Archie Bell and The Drells; That's Better Stop It by Barbara Mason; You Got What I Need by Freddie Scott; Girl You're Too Young by Len Barry; Let's Make A Promise by Peaches and Herb; and the title track Ain't Nothing But A House Party by The Show Stoppers.
