(2006 ´Broke & Hungry´) (40:09/12) Er fegt los wie Mississippi Fred McDowell oder James ´Son´ Thomas, hinter denen der Teufel her ist - und hält diese Spannung nahezu bis zum Schluss. Wer ist dieser Mann? Selbst Labelchef Jeff Konkel hat ihn nur ein Mal gesehen, in jener Nacht, als diese Aufnahmen entstanden. In den Linernotes (das Unglaublichste, was ich je über eine Studiosession gelesen habe!) schreibt er, man möge Odell Harris bitten, ihn anzurufen, sollte man ihn irgendwo treffen. Auszug aus dem Text: ´Was Odell betrifft - nun, er ist kein Mann der sich gerne was sagen läßt. Einfache Bitten wie ´Versuch, ins Mikrofon zu singen´ oder ´Hör auf, mitten im Song Mist über andere Leute zu erzählen´ wurden von irritiertem Grinsen erwidert.´ Tja. Manchmal ist es nicht leicht, ein Album zu produzieren. Diese Session dauerte von abends bis um halb acht am nächsten Morgen. Mit dieser CD beglückt man uns mit einigen der ungehobelsten Downhome-Sounds der letzten Jahre. Eine Entdeckung, spannend und erinnerungswürdig. Mein Tipp
(1949/59 ´Apollo´) (40:29/16) Great R&B Tenor Player - incl.many prev.unreleased sides It was early 1949 before Cootie Williams was able to get his new discovery into a recording studio. A two part 78, Gator Tail , which featured almost no work from the leader but hellfire wailing from an unknown sideman was virtually unprecedented. For many years collectors went searching for the selection that gave Willis Jackson his nickname. The music heard on this disc represents the earliest of his work under his own name
Phil Lesh first met Jerry Garcia in 1959 in the clubs of Palo Alto, California. At Garcia´s suggestion, Lesh learned to play the electric bass and joined him in a new group that blended R&B, country, and rock ´n´ roll with an experimental fervor never before heard. In time for the Grateful Dead´s 40th anniversary, Phil Lesh offers the first behind-the-scenes history of the Dead. Lesh chronicles how the Dead´s signature sound emerged, flowed, and swelled to reach millions of devoted fans, from their first gigs at Frenchy´s Bikini-A-Go-Go for an audience of three, to the legendary Acid Tests, to packed stadiums around the world. In San Francisco during the Summer of Love, at Woodstock, Altamont, and the Great Pyramids of Giza, the Grateful Dead have been at the center of some of rock´s defining moments. Phil Lesh recounts what it´s been like to live at the heart of this whirlwind, impressing Miles Davis and Dizzy Gillespie, sharing the stage with Bob Dylan, Janis Joplin, and the Rolling Stones. Lesh describes what it was like to storm heaven night after night, and the price he and others have paid. Bad management, drug addictions, depression, and insecurities persistently plagued the band members and would culminate with the most tragic blow of all, the death of Jerry Garcia. Searching for the Sound is a ruthlessly honest look inside one of the greatest American bands. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Phil Lesh.

From New York Times best-selling author Mariah Stewart comes more ´´catnip for women´s fiction fans´´ (Booklist) in the second novel of the Hudson Sisters series. Allie, Des, and Cara, each having her own reasons for wanting a share of their father´s estate, meet in the grand Victorian home in which he grew up, only to be greeted by another secret he purposely hid from them: his sister Bonnie. The women reluctantly band together to take on Fritz´s challenge, working with a local contractor to begin the renovations financed by an account Fritz had set up for the task. While the restoration appears to go smoothly at first, it soon becomes apparent that the work will be more extensive than originally thought, and Des, elected to handle the money, needs to find ways to stretch out the remaining savings while searching for new sources of funding. As strangers linked only by their DNA try to become a family, the Hudson sisters also try to come to terms with the father they only thought they knew. In the process, each woman discovers her own capacity for understanding, forgiveness, love, and the true meaning of family. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Joy Osmanski.

Audie Award Finalist, Fantasy, 2014 Another day, another apocalypse.... James Stark, aka Sandman Slim, has managed to get out of Hell, renounce his title as the new Lucifer, and settle back into life in L.A. But he also lost the Qomrama Om Ya, an all-powerful weapon from the banished older gods. Older gods who are returning and searching for their lost power. The hunt leads Stark to an abandoned shopping mall - a global shopping paradise infested with Lurkers and wretched bottom-feeding Sub Rosa families, squatters who have formed tight tribes to guard their tiny patches of retail wasteland. Somewhere in this kill zone is a dead man with the answers Stark needs. All Stark has to do is find the dead man, recover the artifact, and outwit and outrun the angry old gods - and natural-born killers - on his tail. But not even Sandman Slim is infallible, and any mistakes will cost him dearly. 1. Language: English. Narrator: MacLeod Andrews.
