DESCRIPTION : Alfredito “”Sabor”” Linares is a globetrotting pianist, composer, bandleader and producer from Lima, Peru with a long, prolific career in hot Latin music spanning more than half a century.Though Linares has come to recent international fame through his work with William “”Quantic”” Holland, he was already quite popular and famous in his adopted countries of Colombia and Venezuela in the 1970s and 80s during the salsa boom.However, his career began in Lima, backing timbalero Ñico Estrada at age 17 in 1961, and Alfredito’s first notable recording as a sideman was a few years later on the now legendary
‘El Combo de Pepe’ album for IEMPSA/Odeon.Subsequently Linares would advance his career by recording two fabulous records under his own capable leadership as Alfredo Linares Y Su Sonora at the end of the decade for the MAG label.These releases capitalized on recent developments in New York Latin music, namely Latin jazz, boogaloo, descarga (jam session) and what would later be marketed as “”salsa”” with roots in the Cuban guaguancó and guaracha genres.One can hear direct inspiration coming from Joe Cuba, Ricardo Ray, and Eddie Palmieri, especially on the first album, ‘El Pito’, and yet
by the second record, there are plenty of original tunes as well.More importantly there is a ‘swing’ and assertiveness to the playing (and arrangements) that prove every bit as authentic, tough and danceable as their New York inspirations.As Linares himself recounts, “”In that era, we fought against a generation that was half-blind, because the people who understood what we were doing were few.We had to fight hard for our space in Perú, that’s where the swing comes from.”” That special ‘swing’ also emanated from Linares’ ace backing band, which happened to be a talented stable of MAG studio musicians who all understood Cuban and jazz music: percussionists Mario Allison and Coco Lagos, bassist Joey di Roma, Kiko Fuentes and Carlos Muñoz on lead vocals and Melcochita on coro (vocal chorus).According to Linares, the studio band was “”open-ended, some musicians came some days, others on other days…Nilo Espinoza on saxophone, Betico Salas and Tito Chicoma on trumpets.Otto de Rojas played piano, and so did Charlie Palomares, who played vibraphone.Another good musician was guitarist Carlos Hayre.”” Though the recordings were cut “”live in the studio”” and many were basically composed on the spot, the intrinsic strength and maturity of the performances on ‘Yo Traigo Boogaloo’ stand the test of time as one of Peru’s most important contributions to tropical music across
the decades, establishing Alfredito Linares as a master of the idiom and serving as a harbinger for great things to come for him in Colombia and Venezuela.Long sought after by collectors, DJs and lovers of hard salsa and boogaloo alike, ‘Yo Traigo Boogaloo’ is now lovingly reissued in replica form with the original cover art, remastered from the studio tapes, reproducing that magical MAG studio sound for today’s aficionados to enjoy like it was 1969 all over again.”

|26th September||Johnny Thunders & Wayne Kramer||Gang War||2xLP||The New York Dolls & MC5 guitarists collaboration! First time on vinyl; a limited edition in dark red & dark yellow coloured vinyl, on 2xLP with five bonus ‘Live at Max’s’ tracks only previously available on bootleg.JOHNNY THUNDERS & WAYNE KRAMER’S ‘GANG WAR’ In 1979, JOHNNY THUNDERS, renowned Heartbreakers and New York Dolls guitarist, teamed up with WAYNE KRAMER, also legendary guitarist of Detroit’s seminal MC5, to form ‘GANG WAR’, an alliance that lasted the best part of a year.Although Gang War released no records and without a label – at the time they were an underground act; in retrospect the collaboration is looked on as a ‘rock fantasy’ supergroup.These live recordings bear testimony to this unique partnership between two celebrated rock guitar icons.Gang War came about shortly after Johnny released his ‘So Alone’ album, and Wayne was not long out of jail after serving two years of a sentence of four for a coke bust.Arriving in Detroit with the Heartbreakers, Johnny met his teenage idol Wayne who jammed with them at the gig.Johnny stayed on, moving his family to Michigan and pledging his future to Gang War.They toured regularly and recorded a couple of demos with a view to getting a deal, but although there was great interest, after eight or nine months they split.On these recordings, both contribute lead vocals and guitars on Thunders and Dolls tracks such as London Boys, Endless Party and M.I.A.; songs familiar from Kramer and MC5 such as Ramblin’ Rose and Hey Thanks, and fascinating cover versions such as These Boots Are Made For Walking and The Harder They Come.Together with the between-track repartee they also demonstrate the difference between the two – as Wayne Kramer has said: “Music is important to me and I value the honor, the opportunity, to be an important musician.Johnny, on the other hand didn’t consider himself a musician.He considered himself an entertainer.”|

Released to mark the turn of the new millennium in 2001, the “Icky Flix” DVD showcased The Residents award winning videos in glorious technicolour.To accompany those icky old films, the group also produced brand new recordings of each of the twenty songs, providing an alternate new soundtrack to some otherwise ancient visual material.
Inspired in places, plain ridiculous in others, “Icky Flix – The Original Soundtrack Recording” now brings together those Residential classics in their unedited entirety, as reworked by the group and singer Molly Harvey in the year 2000.
Familiar to fans, enticing to the curious and just too damn weird to everybody else, this is The Residents up to their old tricks again, reworking some of their favourite old tunes in their own style.Whether or not some members of the group ever realised they’d recorded the originals of those tunes in the first place is anybody’s guess.
Available exclusively for Record Store Day 2020, on coloured vinyl and in limited quantities worldwide.
|26th September||Robbie Basho||Selection From The Songs Of Avatars||LP||Completely unreleased album.Robbie Basho (1940-1986) is widely regarded as one of the progenitors of what’s commonly known today as American Primitive guitar.Growing up in Maryland alongside neo-traditional guitar explorers John Fahey and Max Ochs, Basho’s path would take a decidedly different turn, bringing Hindi, Indian, Japanese and Native American musical traditions into his work.His albums for Takoma and Vanguard have left an indelible trail of influence across generations of musicians, from William Ackerman and Pete Townshend to Ben Chasny and William Tyler.Liam Barker first became aware of Basho having purchased Tompkins Square’s reissue of Venus in Cancer, released in 2006.This led him on an incredible fact-finding expedition, unraveling the many layers of mystery surrounding Basho’s life and death, all deftly compiled and depicted in his documentary film, Voice of the Eagle : The Enigma of Robbie Basho.During the research process, Barker came across a large cache of unheard Basho tapes recorded throughout his career, ranging roughly from 1965-1985.By arrangement with Basho’s Estate and the original custodians of the tapes, Tompkins Square is set to release Song of the Avatars : The Lost Master Tapes, a 5CD set of previously unreleased material.The label will release a single disc vinyl LP on Record Store Day 2020 as well.The set includes notes by Barker, Henry Kaiser, Steffen Basho-Junghans, Glenn Jones and Richard Osborn, as well as many unseen photographs.Side One 1/If I Had Possession 2/Gypsy Rosary 3/Come to Me Side Two 1/Golden Palomino 2/American Sunday 3/Bride of Thunder 4/Califia –all tracks unreleased.|
