WLV     82001   BOB DYLAN               BOB DYLAM                       LP      11.2017

Wax Love present a reissue of Bob Dylan's debut album, originally released in March
of 1962. Bob Dylan's debut album announced the arrival of a singer-songwriter who
would change the face of 20th century music and popular culture. Though it was
Freewheelin' the following year that would make him an international star and the
voice of a generation, this debut is a crucial piece of folk music history and a
stunning example of his early song-craft. Back in print with a beautifully redesigned
cover on Wax Love. Includes a bonus track, "Mixed-Up Confusion".

WLV     82002   JUDY COLLINS            GOLDEN APPLES OF THE SUN        LP      11.2017

Wax Love present a reissue of Judy Collins's Golden Apples Of The Sun, originally
released in 1962. Legendary folk singer Judy Collins began her musical career as a
piano prodigy -- the daughter of a professional musician and radio host -- but it was
the work of Woody Guthrie and Pete Seeger that inspired Collins to pick up a guitar
in the 1950s and set her off down a career of folk music stardom. Originally released
in 1962, Golden Apples Of The Sun is her second LP and is mostly made up of traditional
material rearranged by Collins and her unique and iconic voice. A classic of the '60s
folk revival back in print on LP.

WLV     82003   ARETHA FRANKLIN         THE FIRST 12 SIDES              LP      11.2017

Wax Love present a reissue of Aretha Franklin's The First 12 Sides, originally released
as Aretha in 1961. Before Aretha hit big with her stomping southern soul sound in the
late '60s, she'd already had quite a career. Beginning as a gospel singer Franklin
spent the early '60s recording in a variety of styles to varying success. While her
other releases were overproduced and poppy, these very early recordings with the Ray
Bryant group are beautiful jazz vocal stylings in the manner of Sarah Vaughan or Ella
Fitzgerald. Beautifully recorded with no overdubs this is fantastic early '60s jazz
and her voice is as perfect a fit for this material as it is for the soul she's famous
for.

WLV     82004   PROFESSOR LONGHAIR : MARDI GRASS IN NEW ORLEANS         LP      12.2017

Fusing diverse elements of blues, barrelhouse boogie-woogie, funk and gospel, with
mambo, rhumba and second-line street parade rhythms, Professor Longhair's contribution
to today's musical vocabulary is immeasurable. This compilation of B-sides, rarities
and alternate takes, recorded between 1949 and 1957, honours one of the great and
unique talents in rock'n'roll and blues history.

WLV     82005   DIZZY GILLESPIE : DIZZY ON THE FRENCH RIVIERA           LP      11.2017

Wax Love present a reissue of Dizzy Gillespie's Dizzy On The French Riviera, originally
released in 1962. Recorded July 24, 1962 at the 3rd International Jazz Festival
D'Antibes/Juan-Les-Pins, this is classic 1960s Dizzy. It's smooth and swinging without
losing any of his patented power. Produced by Quincy Jones, and featuring piano and
arrangements from Argentinian master Lalo Schifrin, Gillespie shines here alongside
underrated reed man Leo Wright. A great early '60s Dizzy group absolutely slaying live
to a receptive audience.

WLV     82006   THE BEATLES : A TASTE OF HONEY-LIVE AT STAR CLUB,       LP      11.2017
                HAMBURG 1962

The Beatles played five residencies in Hamburg between 1960 and 1962, the last of
which is captured here in December of 1962, just a few months after Ringo Starr
replaced Pete Best and finalized the lineup that would soon be known as The Fab Four.
The group would soon be signed to Parlophone and the rest, as they say, is history.
This is part one of two historical live recordings, from a two-LP set originally
released as Live! At The Star-Club In Hamburg, Germany; 1962 in 1977, that capture
the band just before they rocketed to stardom. A truly important piece of Beatles
history back in print.

WLV     82007   ROVERT JOHNSON          DRUNKEN HEARTED MAN             LP      11.2017

A collection of the finest moments of the only two known recording sessions by the
King of Delta Blues, Robert Johnson. A man whose poorly documented life and death at
27 have given rise to much legend in the last 30 years, Johnson had little or none
public recognition for his work in his lifetime. Rumored to have sold his soul at the
crossroads to achieve success, Robert Johnson lived his whole life playing at street
corners and Saturday night dances, writing the soundtrack for half a century of rock
culture to come. Featuring all-time classics such as "I Believe I'll Dust My Broom"
or "Kind Hearted Woman Blues", this is mandatory for all early folk and blues
aficionados.

WLV     82008   WOODY GUTHRIE           DUST BOWL BALLADS               LP      12.2017

Wax Love present a reissue of Woody Guthrie's Dust Bowl Ballads, originally released
as a full LP in 1964. This is the first record that "The Oklahoma Cowboy" made in NYC
for Alan Lomax, after his arrival in 1940, as part of his work for the Library of
Congress, taped on April 26th and May 3rd. Originally released as three separate
78 rpm records, these are Guthrie's tales about one of the most dire periods in rural
America, the Dust Bowl era. This quintessential work proves that Guthrie was a true
minstrel of the other face of America, the one that you can't find in history books
: tales of poverty, migration, storms, illness, hunger and harsh criticism of the
American government. This record kills fascists.

WLV     009     SCREAMIN' JAZ HAWKINS : AT HOME WITH...                 LP      03.2018

Wax Love present a reissue of At Home With Screamin' Jay Hawkins, originally released
in 1958. By far one of the most outrageous performers of the early years of rock, prone
to emerging from coffins on stage, with a flaming skull named Henry as his constant
companion, Screamin' Jay was an insanely theatrical figure long before it was even
remotely acceptable. His 1958 debut, At Home, featuring his legendary "I Put A Spell
On You," along with surreal hits like "Hong Kong," "Take Me Back To The Boot And
Saddle," or his wild-ass reinventions of old standards like "I Love Paris" and "Deep
Purple" is a carefully arranged yet gritty, Ray Charles-gone-crazy styled, full band
rhythm, and blues masterpiece, filled with enough howls and groans to send chills down
your spine.

WLV     82010   BOB DYLAN               FREEWHEELIN' OUTTAKES           LP      11.2017
                [THE COLUMBIA YEARS, NYC, 1962

Unlike his debut (WLV 82001LP) -- which took only two days in the studio to record
-- The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan finally emerged in May 1963 after some eight sessions
at Columbia Records Studio A, over the course of nearly a year. The time and effort
paid off in spades, as he emerged from the studio a fully-formed bona fide songwriter
with a legitimate hit on his hands. Obviously, the final album left much material on
the cutting room floor and with this release, Wax Love bring some of that rarely heard
material back to light. A mix of originals that never made it onto any LP, alternate
takes, and cover songs, Freewheelin' Outtakes: The Columbia Sessions, NYC, 1962
captures America's most important living songwriter at a pivotal moment in his career
when he emerged from the Greenwich Village folk scene to become the voice of his
generation.

WLV     82011   JOAN BAEZ               JOAN BAEZ                       LP      12.2017

Wax Love present a reissue of Joan Baez's self-titled debut album, originally released
in 1960. Joan Baez is one of the most prominent figures of the '60s folk scene and a
legendary musician, and activist. Growing up Mexican-American and in the Quaker faith
in the 1950s instilled in Baez a strong belief in pacifism and a deep dedication to
racial justice. After high school Baez moved to Boston and immediately fell in with
burgeoning folk scene there, meeting the influential Odetta, and performing with Bob
Gibson. It was her performance with Gibson at the 1959 Newport Folk Festival that led
to her signing and this debut album, a truly fantastic piece of 1960s folk and the
intro to one of the most important voices of the 20th century American left.

Reissued on wax, it's the killer 1962 full-length by Bo Diddley. This was the first
LP to feature his popular female rhythm guitarist sidekick, The Duchess. Though this
work doesn't feature any well known chart-toppers, it's a stunning slab of classic

Sylvie Vartrans family emigrated from Bulgaria to Paris in 1952 when she was just
a child. Soon she would fall in love with the cosmopolitan Parisian music scene as
well as American jazz and rock and roll, and by 1961, at the young age of 17, she
began her recording career, one that would prove to be among the most illustrious
in French pop music of 20th century. Known for her tough and sultry vocals, Vartran
was an early star of the ye-ye scene and these first singles show why! Featuring many
French language re-workings of rock and R&B hits from The Isley Brothers to Mel
Torme, Paul Anka to Del Shannon, this collection is essential to any fan of 60s
French pop.

this is going to be full of swinging and classy arrangements and soloing, and moody
ballad work. A truly great piece of West Coast jazz, the soundtrack to a film about
one of the most idolized actors in American film history.

Though she had been performing professionally since the late 1920s, as a teenager
in Harlem, during its Renaissance, the immortal Billie Holiday didn't play a single
night on the European continent until 1954. It was in that year that the great
journalist and musician Leonard Feather, and a Swedish promoter organized the Jazz
Club U.S.A. tour, named after Feather's wildly popular radio program. Featuring Red
Norvo, Sonny Clark, and more, the centerpiece of Jazz Club U.S.A. was, undoubtedly,
Lady Day. Recorded at various dates across the tour, Billie's Blues shows Holiday
still had it, despite the turmoil, and drug and alcohol abuse, her voice remained
strong, a stunning document of one of America's greatest treasures on her first ever
tour of Europe. Reissued with 5 bonus tracks.

Though he's been dead for nearly 50 years, Joe Meek remains one of the most fascinating
and influential figures in British pop music. A brilliant and prolific producer and
songwriter - despite his inability to either play an instrument or read music - Meek
also happened to be an occultist, paranoiac, suicidal depressive and, to top it all
off, a murderer. Though only 37 at the time of his death Meek left a large body of
work rivaled only by his equally inspired/insane competitor across the pond, Phil
Spector. This brand new collection on Wax Love bring 18 of Meek's finest early '60s
pop productions back to life on vinyl, the format they were made for. Dig in!

In a career spanning over four decades, composer, conductor and arranger Enrico
"Henry" Mancini (1924-1994) won numerous Academy and Grammy awards for his scores
to well-known films and television series, including The Pink Panther, Hatari!, Two
For The Road, Wait Until Dark, Peter Gunn, and of course, 1961s Breakfast At Tiffanys
(which alone won five Grammys and two Oscars)! The Breakfast At Tiffanys soundtrack
is probably best remembered for Audrey Hepburns legendary performance of Mancinis
"Moon River" (lyrics by Johnny Mercer), which won an Academy Award for Best Song
that year. "Moon River" went on to become one of the best loved songs of all time,
but it first made its appearance here, in Breakfast At Tiffanys.

On December 4, 1956, four young musicians gathered by pure chance at Sun Records in
Memphis for what would become one of the greatest jam sessions ever. In fact, the four
guys in question happen to be Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins and Jerry Lee
Lewis, hence the name "Million Dollar Quartet". Not only does this recording show a
glimpse of the real Elvis, but it actually stands as a musical artifact in itself.
Ranging from gospel spirituals and country standards to covers of Bill Monroe and
Chuck Berry songs, these four all-time rock icons play with all the ingredients that
created rock and roll, just for the fun of it. A document showing the real feel of the
early days of rock and roll, finally back on vinyl.

        12.     SNEAKIN' AROUND
        13.     TEN LONG YEARS

This collection compiles many of the classic '50s and '60s sides that B.B. King
recorded for the Los Angeles based label Modern. Mostly recorded in King's home base
of Memphis, Tennessee -- some even recorded and produced by Sam Phillips of Sun
Records fame -- these sides are some of the most important and classic blues and R&B
tracks of the late 1950s and early 1960s. A true workhorse, King was often playing
more than 300 concerts a year at this point in his career, and it shows in these
performances where a tight band is led by one of the most practiced and technically
skilled guitarists of the era. King remains a huge influence on guitarists to this
day and these recordings, from nearly 60 years ago, are a perfect example why.

        20.     TREAT ME NICE

This collection is where it all began, at 706 Union Ave in Memphis, Tennessee,
otherwise known as Sam Phillips' legendary Sun Studios. Famously Elvis Presley
walked in the door there in 1953 to record an acetate for his mother, Phillips
took down his name for future reference/possible label signing and the rest, as
they say, is history. Pressed into the wax on this LP are 20 of the most legendary
performances in rockabilly/country/rock and roll history. An absolutely essential
collection and possibly the greatest recordings of the King's storied 20+ year career.

        03.     MR. P.C.
        04.     MY FAVORITE THINGS

When John Coltrane performed in 1963 at Penn State University, it was with the group
that is now considered his most "classic" group: the quartet featuring McCoy Tyner on
piano, Jimmy Garrison on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums. Featuring an epic, 25 minute
long, "Bye Bye Blackbird" among other early 60s originals and covers, this is the
sound of an artist coming into his own and truly shining. Coltrane at the top of his
modal/post-bop powers.

Cynthia Gooding was a folksinger best known for her radio show, which was broadcast
on New York's WBAI. It was on this show in early 1962 that she recorded an interview
and performance with the then unknown Dylan, whose first album had yet been released.
A stunning and clear performance featuring covers and many of his earliest canonical
songs, an important document in the nearly 60 year career of an American icon.

The great Eddie Cochran, an early rock and roll legend rivaled only by the likes of
Elvis, and his good friends Buddy, and Richie, was gone before his 22nd birthday, the
victim of a taxi cab crash while on tour in England. It's hard to imagine, when
listening to Cochran's body of work, that one man could record so much classic material
in such a brief period of time. Cochran's first solo release came in 1956, and in less
than 5 years he recorded dozens of singles, including 7 chart hits in the USA, and a
number more in the UK. This comp includes some of his biggest hits as well as numerous
b-side rarities, showcasing the breadth and depth of this legendary early rock and
roller.

Houston, Texas favorite son Sam John Hopkins, better known as Lightnin, was recorded
in 1959 by the legendary musicologist Samuel Charters, predating and predicting the
folk-blues revival of the early 60s. Highly regarded as one of the finest acoustic
blues albums ever, Lightnin Hopkins established its hero as a legend. The very
definition of essential.

        13.     I FALL IN LOVE TOO EASILY
        14.     LOOK FOR THE SILVER LINING

Chet Baker was the very definition of cool and this 1954 release, which introduced
the world to his unique jazz vocal delivery is arguably the finest work of his career.
His vocal style possessed a clear, pure tone devoid of vibrato, similar to his trumpet
playing, and was just as revelatory, this album is a landmark of West Coast cool jazz
perfect for those late, smokey nights, and an absolute essential for any fan of the
late great Baker.

        09.     I'M A HOWLING WOLF
        10.     TEASE YOU DADDY

The legendary John Lee Hooker began his long and storied recording career in 1948,
and over the next several years he released dozens of sides for the Los Angeles based
blues and R&B super power label Modern. This classic LP collects some of his finest
singles from 1948-1954, raw and powerful stuff that is as important as any from
Hooker's entire career. Often featuring just Hooker and his guitar, or with a small
backing combo, these tracks are sparse and deep, as real as the blues ever were.

        10.     CUCKOO CLOCK
        11.     MOON DAWG
        12.     THE SHIFT

Formed in 1961 when Dennis Wilson, the only Beach Boy to regularly visit the beach,
asked his brother Brian to write a song about the sport of surfing. The Beach Boys
reached number 75 in national charts with their first single (the resultant song
'Surfin'') and were immediately signed to a major label. Though many debut albums in
the early '60s were mainly built around a few smash-hits, the Beach Boys' 1962 full
length debut on Capitol (featuring such hits as 'Surfin' Safari,' '409' and their
version of the Eddie Cochran classic 'Summertime Blues') remains one of the greatest
first steps in American pop culture, and a mandatory chapter in the history of rock
and roll.

1957's With His Hot And Blue Guitar is the debut album of country and rock and roll
pioneer and all-around American hero Johnny Cash. Featuring his backing band, The
Tennessee Two, the album includes all-time classics like "Hey Porter," "The Wreck of
the Ol' 97," and "Folsom Prison Blues." The beginnings of an American country hero
also happen to be some of the finest recordings of his career, absolutely stellar
Southern Americana.

        13.     DON'T YOU KNOW
        14.     I GOT A WOMAN

Perhaps the greatest crossover artist that ever was, it is impossible to overstate
the impact that Ray Charles had on the evolution of both R&B and rock 'n' roll.
Charles' distinctive style transcended genres and influenced musicians from every
musical background and from every corner of the globe, but it was during the mid
-fifties that Charles really began to rule the R&B charts. His legendary debut LP
- originally released in 1957 (and later renamed Hallelujah! I Love Her So) for
Atlantic - was essentially a collection of those hit singles. In 1955 Ray had his
first number one hit, 'I've Got A Woman,' followed by his second and third number
one hits, 'A Fool For You,' and 'Drown in My Own Tears,' over just the next few
months. Almost all of the remaining tracks on the album were also top ten hits from
that same period, including 'Greenbacks,' 'Hallelujah I Love Her So,' and 'This
Little Girl of Mine.' This was undoubtedly the era that defined the legend."

Wax Love present One Night Stand!, a reissue of Sam Cooke's Live At The Harlem Square
Club 1963 originally released in 1985. This stunning live date from the great Sam Cooke
at Miami's Harlem Square Club went unreleased for years because his label thought it
was too raw and raucous, a complaint that hardly seems fair today as this is now known
as one of the great live albums of all-time.

Wax Love present The King As Seen On TV! a collection of Elvis Presley TV appearances
in 1957. In his first nationally televised appearance, on the big band leaders Tommy
and Jimmy Dorsey's TV variety show, Elvis Presley shocked the country with his sultry
and sensational version of all-time classics like "Heartbreak Hotel" and "Blue Suede
Shoes". And, although the Dorsey Brothers Show might have been his first national
appearance, it was the legendary Ed Sullivan performance that truly put him on the
map, so to speak.

Beatles played five residencies in Hamburg between 1960 and 1962, the last of which
is captured here in December of 1962, just a few months after Ringo Starr replaced
Pete Best and finalized the lineup that would soon be known as The Fab Four. The group
would soon be signed to Parlophone and the rest, as they say, is history. This is part
two of two historical live recordings that capture the band just before they rocketed
to stardom. A truly important piece of Beatle history.

        04.     THE ARK

Wax Love present a reissue of Ornette Coleman's At The Town Hall, December 1962,
originally released as Town Hall - 1962 in 1965. Ornette Coleman's Town Hall show
from December 1962 is the stuff legends are made of. He'd already made a name for
himself with incredible releases on Atlantic including The Shape Of Jazz To Come
(1959) and Free Jazz (1961), but to some extent this live date feels like his free
-jazz coming out party. A true artistic statement of pure free energy, this live date
is both totally unhinged and completely in control. A necessary piece of free jazz
history on Wax Love.

        11.     WHO DO YOU LOVE
        12.     PRETTY THING

The full-length debut by the man known as the originator of rock and roll should need
no introduction. Though never a top seller on par with his Chess Records rival Chuck
Berry, Bo produced a catalog of classics to compete with all but a handful of the best
early rockers, pushing rock and roll to its funkiest ever. The Bo Diddley beat--that
'bomp, ba-bomp-bomp, bomp-bomp' to which the pop-garage 1965 hit 'I Want Candy' by
the Strangeloves owes everything--is one of rock and roll's bedrock rhythms, showing
up in the work of Buddy Holly, the Velvet Underground, and the Rolling Stones to name
but a few. An all time classic that stretched back as far as Africa for its roots,
and looked as far into the future as rap, while still remaining a milestone in the
transition from blues to early rock and roll.

Charles whiskey smooth vocals. A crucial and essential piece of work from one of the
20th centurys most celebrated performers.

Recorded at the famed Capitol Studios in Hollywood in 1956, this was the first, and
by far the best, of 3 albums Ella and Louis recorded in the late 1950s. Comprised of
classic ballads selected by the famed Norman Granz, Ella and Louis charm is undeniable.
A truly iconic jazz vocal album backed by The Oscar Peterson Quartet, Ella and Louis
is guaranteed to please listeners of any age.

Following the untimely death of his beloved bassist, Scott Le Faro, Bill Evans was
despondent, taking a several month hiatus from performing. Moon Beams was the first
Bill Evans Trio album recorded and released with new bassist, Chuck Israels, and a
beautiful return to form. Comprised of gorgeous ballads, Moon Beams title is perfectly
apt, a late night dreamlike album that subdues the listener. Truly gorgeous piano
jazz from the absolute master of the trio.

Collecting some of his finest gospel sides with The Soul Stirrers, Peace In The Valley
is not just the starting point of Sam Cookes iconic career, it is also some of the
most beautiful music ever put to tape. Though the songs are religious in nature, one
can easily hear the architecture of Cookes later secular R&B work in these sides.
Soulful and sanctified music from one of the finest voices in the history of 20th
century popular music.

backing group, The Del-Tones, Surfer's Choice, is an absolute, stone cold, classic

WVL     82047   MILES DAVIS             SEVEN STEPS TO HEAVEN           LP      02.2018

        05.     BABY WON'T YOU PLEASE COME HOME
        06.     JOSHUA

Late 1962 and early 1963 were a period of transition for Miles Davis. He had health
issues and his original quintet from the 1950s was on its last legs. He played with
a variety of hired hands while working on assembling a new quintet. Seven Steps To
Heaven collected various recordings from LA and New York, and the New York recordings
are particularly interesting because they feature the 17 year old Tony Williams, as
well as Ron Carter, and Herbie Hancock, 3 of the brilliant players that would make up
Davis working Quintet for the next several years. While comprised of various players
and sessions, Seven Steps To Heaven is still a beautiful album from the legendary
trumpet player well worthy of inclusion among his finest works.

WLV     82048   JOHN COLTRANE           THE BELIEVER                    LP      02.2018

        02.     NAKATINI SERENADE
        03.     DO I LOVE YOU BECAUSE YOU'RE BEAUTIFUL

The Believer collects recordings from 1958 from tenor master John Coltrane. Featuring
longtime collaborators Red Garland and Paul Chambers, as well as two of the finest
trumpet players to ever grace a jazz record, Donald Byrd and Freddie Hubbard, the
album begins with longtime Coltrane collaborator McCoy Tyners title composition.
Though its a piecemeal album, Coltrane is in top form and his soloing on tenor at the
time was unparalleled. Another great one from Trane.

        03.     JACK RABBIT
        04.     MIMOSA
        05.     A JUMP AHEAD

Inventions & Dimensions is the third album Herbie Hancock ever released as a leader
and proof that he was not an artist who was willing to be pigeonholed. Featuring
a quartet made up of a bassist and two latin percussionists, Inventions & Dimensions
explores the possibility of latin percussion outside the context of a latin jazz
album. Comprised of post-bop and modal compositions all from the pen of Hancock, this
is a beautiful album that shows the promise of a young and confident pianist and
composer who would blossom into one of the most celebrated talents in jazz history.
Essential.

The 4th James Brown LP, originally released in 1961, is one of the harder titles in
his early discography to find. Though it doesnt contain any of his massive, instantly
recognizable hits, its regarded among collectors as one of the finest pure R&B albums
of its era. And it includes some of his best charting singles such as "Just You And
Me Darling", and "Lost Someone". Beg, scream, & shout along with the Hardest Working
Man In Show Business, The Godfather of Soul himself: Mr. JAMES BROWN!

WLV     82051   ROBERT JOHNSON          ME AND THE DEVIL                LP      05.2018

Wax Love present Me And The Devil, a collection of some of the finest moments of the
only two known recording sessions by the King of Delta Blues, Robert Johnson, made in
Dallas and San Antonio in 1936 and 1937. A man whose poorly documented life and death
at 27 have given rise to much legend in the last 75+ years, Johnson had little or none
public recognition for his work in his lifetime. Rumored to have sold his soul at the
crossroads to achieve success, Robert Johnson lived his whole life playing at street
corners and Saturday night dances, writing the soundtrack for half a century of rock
culture to come. Featuring all-time classics such as "Crossroad Blues", "Love In Vain",
and "Phonograph Blues", this is mandatory for all early folk and blues aficionados.

WLV     82052   ROBERT JOHNSON          LOVE IN VAIN                    LP      05.2018

Though the legendary blues musician Robert Johnson was only known to have recorded
twice in his brief lifetime, in 1936 and 1937 in Texas, his output in those two brief
days so long ago was both endlessly influential and surprisingly prolific. Beyond the
classic sides that were released on 78 rpm at the time, there were numerous unreleased
outtakes and alternate recordings that went uncovered for decades after their
recording. Collected here are 12 alternate takes including essentials like "Crossroad
Blues", "Drunken Hearted Man", "Ramblin' On My Mind", and more. Essential and rare
Robert Johnson sides back in print on Wax Love.

While many of his earlier sides featured only Hooker on guitar and vocals, his Vee-Jay
sides feature a full rocking rhythm section. This first volume spans the years

Following stints with Modern and Chess, legendary blues man John Lee Hooker joined
forces with the esteemed Vee-Jay label out of Chicago in 1955. For the next seven years
Hooker cut some of the most explosive and legendary blues sides of his career and
solidified his position as one of the greatest performers of the electric blues era.
By the 1960s the folk and blues revival would make international stars of many blues
performers but at the time of these Vee-Jay recordings this was music made by African
-Americans mostly for the African-American market, from Chicago to the South to Los
Angeles and New York and points between, and Vee-Jay was one of the first and most
successful African-American owned record labels. While many of his earlier sides feat.
only Hooker on guitar and vocals, his Vee-Jay sides feature a full rocking rhythm
section. Essential sides from one of the all-time greatest American performers of the
20th century. This first volume, Mambo Chillun, spans the years 1955-1958, and includes
the titular "Mambo Chillun" a play on his classic hit, "Boogie Chillun", as well as
16 more great late '50s blues sides. This second volume, Boom Boom, spans the years

Like many of Johnny Cash's albums from the late 50s and early 60s, Blood, Sweat and
Tears is a concept album. This time around, for his 15th long player, The Man in Black
sings a suite of songs about the plight of the working man. Featuring The Carter Family
on backing vocals and longtime guitarist Luther Perkins, this is a killer album that
features two classics he'd later record on the legendary Folsom Prison sessions
("The Legend of John Henry's Hammer" and "Busted"). Another classic from Johnny Cash
on Wax Love.

WLV     82057   BOB DYLAN : LIVE AT THE GASLIGHT, NYC, SEPT. 6TH,1961   LP      06.2018

Live At The Gaslight, NYC, September 6th, 1961 is a historic performance in many
regards; it is one of the first known live recordings of the great Robert Zimmerman
and, more importantly, the first known live recording to feature original songs
("Man On The Street", "Talkin' Bear Mountain Picnic Massacre Blues", and "Song To
Woody"). Known amongst collectors as "The First Gaslight Tape", the sound quality on
these recordings is fantastic, and it holds up as one of the best early Bob Dylan live
recordings in both sound quality and performance.

The late, great, man in black made appearances on the legendary radio and TV show
broadcast out of Shreveport, LA in 1955, 1959, 1962, and 1963. This LP collects
recordings from all of those performances. Though we all know and love his studio
hits, Cash was often at his best in front of a live audience and his performances
here leave no doubt about that. With stunning performances from his Tennessee Two,
the loose, humorous vibe of these recordings highlight Cash's best side. Absolutely
essential.

WLV     82062   SCREAMIN' JAY HAWKINS : BAPTIZE ME IN WINE              LP      06.2018

        01.     NOT ANYMORE
        02.     BAPTIZE ME IN WINE
        03.     I FOUND MY WAY TO WINE
        04.     PLEASE TRY TO UNDERSTAND
        05.     THIS IS ALL
        06.     (SHE PUT THE) WHAMEE (ON ME)
        07.     YOU'RE ALL OF MY LIFE TO ME
        08.     WELL I TRIED
        09.     EVEN THOUGH
        10.     TALK ABOUT ME
        11.     I PUT A SPELL ON YOU
        12.     LITTLE DEMON
        13.     YOU MADE ME LOVE YOU (I DIDN'T WANT TO DO IT)
        14.     DARLING, PLEASE FORGIVE ME
        15.     FRENZY
        16.     PERSON TO PERSON
        17.     LITTLE DEMON (ALTERNATE TAKE)
        18.     I PUT A SPELL ON YOU (ALTERNATE TAKE)
        19.     ALLIGATOR WINE (ALTERNATE TAKE)

In a long line of rock and roll outsiders hailing from Ohio, Screamin' Jay Hawkins
may very well be the first. Born and raised in Cleveland, Hawkins' 1956 single
'I Put A Spell On You' is one of the most instantly recognizable songs in the history
of R 'n' B and rock. Baptize Me in Wine compiles that classic track along with 18
other specimens of pure, unhinged, guttural R 'n' B madness into what is sure to be
considered the definitive Hawkins' collection on the vinyl market. Most tracks were
originally released as singles on the Okeh label except for the last four, which are
outtakes from the first album. Before Devo, before Pere Ubu, before Guided By Voices,
there was Screamin' Jay. There really must be something in the water out there.

        07.     TRAVELIN' LIGHT
        08.     HE'S FUNNY THAT WAY

Jazz at The Philharmonic was a concert series produced by the legendary Norman Granz
all the way from 1944 to 1983. Billie Holiday performed several times in the 1940s
and 50s and was even a member of the touring troupe late in her career. These sides
were recorded in 1945 and 1946 with backing from legends like Illinois Jacquet, Lester
Young, and Barney Kessel. Recorded at the height of her technical prowess and before
her hard living affected her voice, these performances from Los Angeles and New York
City are some of the finest live recordings of her career. Absolute essentials from
a jazz legend.

WLV     82064   NINA SIMONE             NINA AT NEWPORT                 LP      04.2018

        01.     TROUBLE IN MIND
        02.     BLUES FOR PORGY
        03.     LITTLE LIZA JANE
        04.     YOU'D BE SO NICE TO COME HOME TO
        05.     FLO ME LA
        06.     NINA'S BLUES
        07.     IN THE EVENING BY THE MOONLIGHT

When this album was recorded live at the Newport Jazz Festival in 1960, Nina Simone
had just had her first Top 20 hit with "I Loves You, Porgy", but the "Porgy" found
here (written by Jimmy McHugh and Dorothy Fields, most famous for "I Can't Give You
Anything But Love") is actually a continuation of Gershwin's original version of the
story. Other highlights include "Flo Me La", an African work chant, and "Little Liza
Jane", an African American folk song. A truly marvelous live performance from one of
the most original voices in 20th century music.

WLV     82065   CHARLES MINGUS : PITHECANTHTOPUS ERECTUS                LP      04.2018

        01.     PITHECANTHROPUS ERECTUS
        02.     A FOGGY DAY
        03.     PROFILE OF JACKIE
        04.     LOVE CHANT

1956's Pithecanthropus Erectus is the Charles Mingus record where he really begins
to take hold of his own personal vision of how jazz music could look. After cutting
his teeth on the L.A. scene and touring with Louis Armstrong and Lionel Hampton,
Mingus moved to New York, began Debut Records with Max Roach, and entered into the
most productive and creative decade of his career. This album is held in the same
esteem as Mingus Ah-Um and The Black Saint And The Sinner Lady among jazz aficionados,
and one need listen no further than the 10 minute title track, a tone poem about the
rise and fall of man which includes one of the earliest free jazz / improvisation
segments put to tape. Absolutely essential jazz from the late great Charles Mingus
on Wax Love.

WLV     82066   MILES DAVIS             PORGY AND BESS                  LP      04.2018

        01.     THE BUZZARD SONG

        04.     GONE, GONE, GONE

        11.     HERE COME DE HONEY MAN
        12.     I LOVES YOU, PORGY
        13.     THERE'S A BOAT THAT'S LEAVING SOON FOR NEW YORK

Recorded in 4 sessions in 1958 at Columbia's 30th Street Studios with a large group
that included Cannonball Adderley, Paul Chambers, and Philly Joe Jones, this album is
Miles Davis and longtime collaborator Gil Evans' brilliant arrangement of the 1935 Ira
Gershwin classic Porgy and Bess. Miles Davis was one of the all-time greatest
interpreters of standards and with the arrangements from Evans, this album might be
the best example of Davis' interpretive prowess. A beautiful piece of 1950s jazz on
Wax Love.

        12.     TELL ME

Collecting 6 singles released between 1960 and 1962, the self-titled Howlin' Wolf
album, often referred to as "The Rocking Chair Album", is one of the most essential
and immortal of Chicago electric blues LPs. Featuring almost entirely songs by the
great Willie Dixon, this album from Chester Burnett, inspired everyone from Led
Zeppelin to The Stones, Taj Mahal to Jack White. Another all-time classic back in
print thanks to Wax Love.

It Could Happen to You was originally released in 1958 and follows the similar style
of his previous vocal records in which he updates old standards to a contemporary cool
jazz setting. Unlike previous releases by 1958 Baker's voice had reached a stunning
maturity and his trumpet playing is also at a near peak in quality. The song selection
is impeccable and everything about this record just oozes coolness. One of the finest
releases in Chet Baker's storied career.

Big Bill Broonzy experience more in his 55 years on this planet than most. Before his
recording career began in Chicago in the 1920s he had already been married, worked as
a sharecropper, a Pullman porter, a cook, and served for two years in World War I.
After cutting some of the most legendary blues 78s in the '20s and '30s, Despite some
success Broonzy still had to work odd jobs through most of the '40s to survive and by
the time the folk revival and Pete Seeger found him, he only had a few years left.
This collection documents those final years, from 1951 to 1958, where Broonzy was
touring Europe and finally receiving some of the worldwide acclaim he had long
deserved. Though these recordings come at the end of his life, his guitar skill is
honed and his voice like a fine aged whiskey. Another incredible collection of American
blues from Wax Love.

Son House is one of the most legendary Southern blues men in history. Just before the
Great Depression he recorded some sessions for Paramount that sold very little and when
the Depression hit, his recording career was halted. It wasn't until the Library of
Congress and Fisk University recorded him at Klack's Store, Lake Cormorant, MI, in
August 1941. and again in July of 1942 at Robbinsonville, Mississippi. Those recordings
have come to define his career and are a hallmark of the blues genre. Wax Love presents
a glorious retrospective compilation of those recordings, with some of his most well
known tunes like "Shetland Pony Blues", "Low Down Dirty Dog Blues", and "Walking
Blues." Classic.

Edith Piaf lived a tortured life. She died at 47 of liver cancer after years of alcohol
abuse and pill addiction, and it's reported that her last words were "Every damn thing
you do in this life, you have to pay for." While that's a hard way to live, her pain
and emotion rang true in song, and there's not a better or more gut wrenching torch
singer in history than Ms. Piaf. Collecting some of her most famous recordings, incl.
the immortal "La Vie en Rose", "Tout Fout le Camp", and "Le Vagabond", this is a
brilliant retrospective of her career and a perfect entry point into the world of one
of the greatest vocalists of the 20th Century.

Things moved fast for Gene Vincent, he rocketed to stardom in 1956 on the heels of his
massive hit "Be-Bop-A-Lula" and had Bluejean Bop, his debut album, out and in stores
before the end of that year. Featuring killer early rock and roll as well as some
covers of standards, Bluejean Bop is a quintessential album of the early era of rock.

recordings of Hopkins feature him on amplified guitar with bass and drums. These are
not the folk-blues many associate with Hopkins, these are raw and glorious R&B tinged
blues recordings way more for the juke joints than the folk festivals. Lightnin'
Hopkins is one of the most crucial blues musicians in history, and these are his most
rocking and raucous sides ever!

Famous Flames, originally released in 1960 on King Records. Although the title track

Chega de Saudade is the 1959 debut album from Brazilian musical legend Joao Gilberto,
featuring the most famous recording of the title track by Antonio Carlos Jobim, widely
regarded as the first bossa nova song ever recorded. Hailed as the fourth best
Brazilian album of all time by Rolling Stone it also features his fantastic
interpretation of another Jobim classic, "Desafinado", and his own "Bim-Bom" which
many believe to be the first written bossa nova track. Needless to say, this album
is a milestone in Brazilian recordings and bossa nova music and essential to any
serious collection of either.

shellac singles for the legendary Chicago blues label Chess Records. Born sometime in
the 1910s or early 1920s in rural Mississippi, Hooker moved to Detroit in 1943 to work
at the Ford Motor Company and soon began frequenting the city's blues clubs. Hooker
recorded for many labels throughout the 1950s but it was with Chess that he cut his
most memorable and famous sides. This album is the beginning of that fruitful
relationship and features simply Hooker's beautiful blues vocals, raw guitar playing,
and foot stomping to keep the beat. There's no more raw and real blues than right here
on this here LP!

Like so many great singers in history, East Orange, New Jersey native Dionne Warwick
got her start in the church, and for the family gospel group, The Drinkard Singers.
In the late 50s/early 60s she met Burt Bacharach at a recording session where she was
singing backing vocals and the rest, as they say, is history. Warwick collaborated
with the songwriting and production team of Bacharach and Hal David for dozens of
massive hits, and this, her 3rd album, features some of the biggest and bets hits of
her illustrious career, including "Walk On By", "You'll Never Get to Heaven (If You
Break My Heart)", and "Reach Out for Me". Truly brilliant pop/R&B of the highest order.
Featuring 7 bonus tracks!

The debut LP from one of the most dynamic duos in the history of recorded music, The
Soul Of Ike & Tina Turner was originally released on Sue in 1961. Featuring their
classic singles, "A Fool in Love", and "I Idolize You", this is one of the best R&B
records of the early 60s. After joining his group as a backup singer in 1957, it soon
became clear that Tina Turner's (then Ann Bullock, or Little Ann) talent and charisma
were better suited for the spotlight, and by 1960 the group had changed names to the
Ike & Tina Turner Revue. An essential record for any fans of Tina Turner or early 60s
R&B, truly a barnburner!
