Lights...camera...vinyl

A nice batch this week: limited coloured pressings of Raveonettes and Suicidal Tendencies, Classic Rock by Taste and John Mayall's Bluesbreakers, Blues by Bonnie Raitt and Folk Pop by America.

RAVEONETTES - WHIP IT ON 10"

Whip It On is the impressive debut by Danish psych-Pop duo The Raveonettes, originally released in 2002.
All written in the key of B flat minor, band members Sharin Foo and Sune Rose Wagner made quite an impact with 8 intoxicating 'film noiresque' tunes, driven by strong rhythms and heavy 3 chord riffs.

SUICIDAL TENDENCIES - LIGHTS CAMERA REVOLUTION

Music On Vinyl are thrilled to unleash the fourth studio album from Venice Beach, L.A. heavyweights Suicidal Tendencies.

Lights... Camera... Revolution boasts the line-up now deemed classic. Suicidal's flirtation with the mainstream (complete with obligatory criticism of 'selling-out') went Gold in the US with over half a million copies sold, and to this day remains an essential record in any Metal or Punk collection.

TASTE - LIVE TASTE

"To many thousands of people, Taste meant hours of enjoyment in small-packed sweaty clubs up and down the country.

They meant that three piece group from Ireland, who did what few groups ever do by making the top on merit of their music. Taste meant three brilliant soloists who, together, formed one of the tightest groups around.


When Taste split we all lost part of ourselves. As we have to learn to live with it, this album is going to make living without Taste easier. Take this piece of black plastic, put it on your player, close your eyes and let your imagination run. This, their third best album, is what Taste were all about. THIS IS TASTE." Paul Charles (4.11.70.)

JOHN MAYALL & THE BLUESBREAKERS - BARE WIRES

John Mayall's Bluesbreakers were the undisputed flag-bearers of the British Blues movement during the mid sixties. The band saw many configurations, spawning talents like Eric Clapton, Mick Taylor, Peter Green, John McVie and Mick Fleetwood.

Bare Wires is their fifth album, with a young Mick Taylor in its ranks. Bare Wires went down in history as the album where Mayall treaded Jazz territory.

BONNIE RAITT - BONNIE RAITT

Bonnie Raitt's eponymous debut album put her on the map as a phenomenal Blues singer. Her natural talent for singing laidback Blues combined effortlessly with a New Orleans-like, almost Jazzy sound made her a household name in the Americana world.

Released when Bonnie was just 22, Bonnie Raitt contains some of the best female Blues you'll ever hear.

AMERICA - HOLIDAY

Their fourth album Holiday (1974), saw America back on track doing what they do best: writing infectious folk rock songs with great harmonies and musicianship to boot.

Working together for the first time with George Martin of Beatles fame, the album produced two hit singles: "Tin Man" and "Lonely People" and established America as one of the finest bands around.
