Once Upon A Time In Shaolin: The Untold Story Of Wu-Tang Clan’s Million-Dollar Secret Album, The Devaluation of Music, And America’s New Public Enemy No. 1
The untold story of Wu-Tang Clan’s album Once Upon A Time In Shaolin is one of modern music’s most interesting capers, a compelling philosophical and artistic statement, and at times a downright insane story.
Taken from the Sub Pop release, B-Sides And Rarities.
Taken from the Third Man Records release, Hamburg Recordings 1967.
In 1969, British jazz pianist Mike Westbrook’s big band orchestra released a two-volume set entitled Marching Song, a deftly covert anti-war conceptual set that is both quite enjoyable and quite poignant in its delivery, and a subtle one at that. This collection compiles both albums plus a third disc of outtakes from the era.
Taken from the Signature Sounds release, The Dustbowl Revival.
Some thoughts on Independence Day, and a moving song I love.
1967 wasn’t a good year for The Beach Boys, and it especially wasn’t good for Brian Wilson’s psyche. But the year did produce one of their greatest albums, the highly underrated Wild Honey. This two-disc collection examines the lesser-explored post-Smile Beach Boys era, even though the biggest selling point of this generous rarities collection deserved to stay unreleased.
Taken from the River House release, Positively Bob: Willie Nile Sings Bob Dylan.
