Συναυγεια :
συναντηση των ακτινων της ορασης με το ορουμενο στο ενδιαμεσο διαστημα.


"Οταν Υπαρχει Το Φως της μερας γυρω απο το ρευμα των ματιων, συναντιουνται δυο ομοια
πραγματα, ενωνονται και σχηματιζουν μια μονο συγγενικη ύλη, μπροστα στα ματια μας, δηλαδη ακριβως στο σημειο οπου συναντιεται η φωτια που βγαινει απο μεσα μας μ'εκεινη που υπαρχει απ'εξω.
Απ'την ομοιοτητα των δυο αυτων στοιχειων, δημιουργειται κατι ομοιομορφο,μεταδιδει τις κινησεις ολων των αντικειμενων που αγγιζει ή απο τα οποια αγγιζεται σ'ολοκληρο το σωμα και μεχρι το βαθος της ψυχης, δινοντας αυτην την αισθηση που ονομαζουμε οραση"

 τριπλό CD από την εταιρεία Libra, αφιερωμένο στον K. Γιαννουλόπουλο


"Think possitive"
.. Δεν Επιλεγω δηλαδη.. ποτέ δισκους οι οποιοι μου δημιουργουν Αρνητικα Συναισθηματα (απο συνεντευξη του)


Η γνωστή φωνή ακούγεται: "Τα πρωινά όλου του κόσμου. Μια εκπομπή του Κώστα Γιαννουλόπουλου. Ένα ταξίδι στο διαφορετικό ήχο της μέρας". Η εκπομπή άρχισε. Το 'IN FREE FALL' είναι απλά μία ακόμη εκπομπή του Κώστα. Η LIBRA MUSIC αφιερώνει αυτή την παραγωγή της στον Κώστα Γιαννουλόπουλο, εκτιμώντας το σημαντικό έργο που προσέφερε στη μουσική. Οι κυριότεροι σταθμοί της πορείας του παρουσιάζονται στο βιβλίο που συνοδεύει το άλμπουμ και πλούσιο φωτογραφικό υλικό σκιαγραφεί το πορτρέτο του. Το μουσικό τοπίο του αφιερώματος είναι ευρύ: κλασική, σύγχρονη, jazz, fusion, ethnic και world μουσική. Μουσικοί και μουσικές του κόσμου δημιουργούν ένα πολύμορφο τοπίο συνεύρεσης και αποδεικνύουν αυτό που ο Γιαννουλόπουλος πάντα υποστήριζε, πως στη μουσική δεν μπορούν να τεθούν ταμπέλες και όρια.  (η συνέχεια εδώ)

John Mayall's Bluesbreakers - Fillmore Auditorium - San Francisco,CA. - Feb.9,1968



John Mayall - vocals, guitar, harmonica, keyboard
Mick Taylor - guitar
Keith Tillman - bass
Chris Mercer - tenor sax, organ
Dick Heckstall-Smith - alto and tenor sax
Keef Hartley - drums

Few bandleaders in the 1960s had the vision or ability to constantly change musicians and still create intriguing music every step of the way. John Mayall was one. Like Miles Davis and Frank Zappa, Mayall had a visionary knack for recognizing young talent and more importantly, how to assemble and arrange this talent into powerful musical units. In many cases, Mayall was the catalyst for these younger musicians discovering their own voices, gaining confidence, and defining their sound. This inevitably led to musicians striking out on their own, often to much greater success.
Fillmore Auditorium - San Francisco,CA. - Feb.9,1968
Bill Graham in his Fillmore Office 1967

In the mid-1960's, Mayall had some of the greatest British guitar players working for him. Eric Clapton, followed by Peter Green, had helped redefine British Blues and brought a raw intensity as well as volume to the proceedings, that was being recognized globally. At the time of this concert, Green had departed to form Fleetwood Mac and Mayall brought in the young Mick Taylor as lead guitarist, yet another visionary choice. With a Bluesbreakers lineup that now featured Dick Heckstall-Smith and Chris Mercer on saxes and the rhythm section of Keith Tillman and Keef Hartley, they were a serious force to be reckoned with.

This incredible night, where John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers performed between Albert King and the Jimi Hendrix Experience must have been a feast for blues fans and guitar players alike. The recording begins poorly mixed during the opening "Dust My Broom," but by the second song "So Many Roads," the instrumental balance is quite good. Mick Taylor fans might find this recording like a holy grail, as so little exists of this era. Mayall released two poorly recorded live albums of this lineup that, although sourced from mono recordings, clearly demonstrated that Mick Taylor was indeed in the league of his predecessors. Here one can enjoy that same era in far better clarity.

Being on a bill sandwiched between King and Hendrix must have been intimidating for all involved, especially Mick Taylor, but he rises to the occasion. His fluid guitar playing is simply outstanding on this set. One gets the sense that Taylor studied his predecessors carefully and was consciously avoiding duplication. He is striving for a sound uniquely his own and he is thoroughly successful. He has little interest in flashiness and instead, often plays in a manner both thoughtful and refined. This isn't to say he doesn't cut loose - he does spectacularly on "So Many Roads" and "My Own Fault," the two most improvisational pieces. On these, he has plenty of bite, a distinct touch and a delicious tone. The set ending "Soul of a Short Fat Man" features drummer Keef Hartley and it's a wild blowout by all concerned.

Review :/www.wolfgangsvault.com/

This lineup only lasted for a brief span of time, but the music they created deserves and rewards attention. Once again, these musicians would soon move on to more challenging adventures. Dick Heckstall-Smith would soon be a founding member of Colosseum. Chris Mercer would hook up with Juicy Lucy. Keef Hartley would establish his own band, and of course, Mick Taylor, would become a Rolling Stone the next year and soon be a prime component on some of the decade's most memorable music. However, it was right here that these musicians were discovering themselves

V.A. Nuggets From The Golden State. Dance With Me US West Coast S.F. Psychedelic Garage Pop

Dance With Me: The Autumn Teen Sound (Nuggets From The Golden State series)

The second instalment in the great series of '60s West Coast rock - Nuggets From The Golden State. Dance With Me turns the spotlight on the teen pop combos that recorded for the Autumn label. Autumn Records was the brainchild of Bay area DJs and music promoters Tom Donahue and Bobby Mitchell. Their enthusiasm for the rock music that was transforming the West Coast of America (itself a response and a product of The Beatles and the "British Pop Invasion" of the '60s, generally) led them to record many of the groups on the music scene at the time, among them The Vejtables, Mojo Men and The Knight Riders. Through their DJing they met Sylvester Stewart (later to reincarnate as 'Sly Stone' of Sly & The Family Stone) and he honed his production skills at Autumn, encouraging, even dictating his own ideas to, the individual group's sound. Both Donahue and Mitchell provided the impetus to sign bands but they quickly lost interest in the acts, leaving them to Sly, and his remarkable production talent, to coax the best from them.
The good humoured Dance With Me by The Mojo Men was very successful! regionally and reached No 61 on the national charts. The much-anthologised 'punk' of I by The Knight Riders is testimony to a hell-raising band whose popularity on the peninsula was at teen spots like Big Al's Gas House. The Vejtables were the most Beatle-obsessed of the Bay Area bands and both sides of their Mersey beat-flavoured single I Still Love You are included here. The single only reached No 84 nationally but it got them support spots to The Yardbirds and The Beach Boys as well as TV slots on American Bandstand and Where The Action Is. Among the little known items and bands is The Bundles. Their garage punk on Mark My Words and Watch Me Girl deserves a wider audience. As an added bonus, 17 of the 30 tracks on Dance With Me are previously unreleased and the compilation, sleeve note and rare pics by Alec Palao of American magazine Cream Puff War.(From the Ace / Big Beat Records)

San Francisco in the early 1960s was a haven for the beatniks who were seeking out the real Beat Generation poets and writers, jazz players and artists. The commercial folk scene was already in full bloom with the Kingston Trio, and local favorite Johnny Mathis was crooning pop ballads.

After the Beatles hit America, many bands started up hoping to be the Bay Area's answer to the Merseybeat sound. They in turn inspired a number of loud "garage pop" bands, some of which were inspirations for the punk movement of the 1970s, and a new breed of "garage psychedelic pop" bands, some of which are represented in this show. Many of these psychedelic bands evolved into rock groups that carried the San Francisco sound to the rest of the country and Europe.

The Mojo Men - 1966-68 - Sit Down...It's the Mojo Men - US San Francisco psychedelic.


The Mojo Men
The Mojo Men were a rock music band, inspired by The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, that recorded for the Autumn Records label in San Francisco, California. One of their biggest hits, 1965’s “Dance With Me”, and a number of other records, were produced by Sylvester Stewart, later better known as Sly Stone.

One of the earliest San Francisco rock bands, the Mojo Men had local hits on the Autumn label with "Dance With Me," "She's My Baby," and a cover of the Rolling Stones' "Off the Hook" in the mid-'60s. Their early sides displayed a raunchy but thin approach taken from the mold of British Invasion groups like the Stones and Them. In 1966, after female drummer Jan Errico joined from the San Francisco folk-rock group the Vejtables, they moved to Reprise and pursued folky psychedelic pop directions, and had a Top 40 hit with a Baroque arrangement of Buffalo Springfield's "Sit Down I Think I Love You" in 1967. In their later days, they developed more intricate arrangements and harmonies that reflected the influence of the Mamas & the Papas and Jefferson Airplane, although they weren't in the same league as those groups. Their many singles never fully displayed the band's considerable songwriting and vocal talents, and after changing their name to the Mojo and finally just Mojo, they disbanded in the late '60s. ~ Richie Unterberger, All Music Guide

Although this band was based in San Francisco some members originated from Florida. The original band formed in Coral Gables, Florida as The Valiants. Singer Jim Alaimo (cousin of singer Steve Alaimo) had early releases under the names Jimmy Sumers and The Slicks and Jimmy Paris. The Valiants also back Steve Alaimo on his 1961 album Twist With Steve Alaimo. It was pretty much the same line-up that moved to San Francisco in 1964 and became The Mojo Men. For much more info, see the liner notes of the Sundazed compilation Why's Ain't Supposed To Be.

Sly Stone had left the band (to form Sly and The Family Stone) by the time the band signed to Reprise and achieved some success with Steve Still's Sit Down I Think I Love You. Their diminuitive female vocalist Jan Errico had earlier achieved much popularity on the West Coast as drummer and lead vocalist for The Vejtables.

In late 1967 the band became known as Mojo because Jan Errico got tired of being known as a Mojo Man. They also changed labels to GRT so that they could record an album. Released in 1968 it was produced by Dave Hassinger. It contained their New York City 45, which suffered from sounding too much like The Mamas and Papas, and overall contained a number of mildly psychedelic, post-Sgt. Pepper pop rock songs. The band finally split in 1969 when they realised their era had ended.

There remains a lot of unissued material from both eras of The Mojo Men. From their time with Autumn fifteen tracks remained unissued although some of these later appeared on Eva's Dance With Me compilation and the superior Sundazed retrospective Why Ain't Supposed To Be. A further nineteen tracks were recorded but not released during their spell with Reprise. These include the long and experimental What Kind Of Man, which was reputed to be a latter-day venture into psychedelia by the band.

Jim Alaimo later resurfaced in a seventies funk band called Jammer that recorded for the Avco-distributed Honey label. He later died of heart failure.

Compilation coverage has so far included: Sit Down, I Think I Love You and She's My Baby on Nuggets Box (4-CD); Sit Down I Think I Love You on Nuggets Vol. 5 (LP), Nuggets - Original Artyfacts From The First Psychedelic Era 1965-1968 (Dble LP) and Sundazed Sampler, Vol. 2 (CD); Off The Hook on Sounds Of The Sixties San Francisco, Vol. 1 (LP); Dance With Me on Sound Of The Sixties (Dble LP), Sixties Archive Vol. 1 (CD) and We Have Come For Your Children; Dance With Me and She's My Baby on San Francisco Roots (LP), The Autumn Records Story (LP) and Nuggets, Vol. 7 (LP). All three of their Autumn singles also figure on the Autumn Single Box. More recently much of their material has featured on Big Beat's Nuggets From The Golden State series:- the Dance With Me CD contains Dance With Me plus a demo and six unreleased cuts from 1965 (She Goes With Me, Off The Hook, Something Bad, My Woman's Head, Can't You See That She's Mine, Why and As I Get Older); Someone To Love features four 1966 cuts - She's My Baby, Fire In My Heart and the unreleased Why Can't You Stay and Girl Won't You Go.
