The Highwaymen - One More Time! (1964)

Artist: The Highwaymen
Album: One More Time!
Label: United Artists Records
Catalog#: UAL 3323
Format: Vinyl, LP, Album
Released: 1964
Country: US
Genre: Folk, Folk Revival
Duration: 00:27:53

The Highwaymen's next-to-last album for United Artists is notable for its version of Buffy Sainte-Marie's "Universal Soldier," which was released as a single two years before Donovan and Glen Campbell enjoyed modest success with the song. Aside from that bit of social consciousness, One More Time! is business as usual for The Highwaymen, with a mixture of traditional and ethnic songs well-played and well-sung. The Highwaymen and their commercial folk brethren were quickly becoming obsolete at this time, supplanted by political folk artists and, eventually, folk-rock. One More Time!, viewed in the context of the music of 1964, is harmless entertainment a couple of years out of step with the times. - Greg Adams

Doug Riley - Foxy Lady (1970 Original Soundtrack)

Artist: Doug Riley
Album: Foxy Lady (Original Soundtrack)
Label: GRT Records
Catalog#: 9230-1009
Format: Vinyl, LP, Album
Country: Canada
Released: 1970
Genre: Funk, Stage & Screen
Duration: 00:30:49

Canadian jazz musician Doug Riley scored this early exploitation picture by Ivan 'Ghostbusters' Reitman. Hard to find even in Canada, it's worth a dig. While most of the music is forgettable loungey incidental music, there are a couple of good groovy numbers, particularly the painfully short 'Savin' Grace' (a wicked little raucous wah drums feature, like a Bare Knuckles out-take) and a smooth easy groover on the flip.

 • Side One:
A1. Overture - 05:05
A2. To be part of you (vocal - Rhonda Silver) - 02:55
A3. Leander's Theme - 01:31
A4. Savin' Grace - 01:12
A5. Vanderfox Foundation - 00:55
A6. Hero's theme - 01:53
 • Side Two:
B1. Ridin' A Daydream (vocal - Terry Black) - 02:05
B2. Love Theme - 02:53
B3. C'mon Baby (be with me tonight) (vocal - House Of Commons) - 02:25
B4. Police Anthem - 00:51
B5. Birth - 01:08
B6. Boutique - 02:53
B7. Hero Finale (vocal - Terry Black) - 03:17

         Recorded at Toronto Sound Studios
         Music produced and arranged by Doug Riley
         Executive Producer - Ivan Reitman

Jo Mama - O Sole Mio (1970 Atlantic)

Artist: Jo Mama
Album: O Sole Mio
Label: Atlantic Records
Catalog#: SD 8269
Format: Vinyl, LP
Country: US
Released: 1970
Genre: Pop, Rock, Funk/Soul
Duration: 00:48:57

The members of Jo Mama were well established in the LA music scene when this LP came out. Guitarist Danny Kootch (aka Danny Kortchmar, who started out with James Taylor & Original The Flying Machine) and drummer Walt O'Brien were together in the King Bees. Organist Ralph Schuckett had played in the acid psych groups Clear Light and Peanut Butter Conspiracy, while Charles Larkey was in The City with his then wife Carol King, along with Kootch. When this JO Mama LP debuted in 1970, Larkey was dating singer Abigale Haness (aka Gayle Haness), who takes lead vocals here. If you're looking for a terrific vibe, JO Mama certainly embodies it with this album of West Coast pop rock, a la The Band, as well as some jazzy tunes. Selections are: Machine Gun Kelly; Midnight Rider; Searching High, Searching Low; Lighten Up, Tighten Up; Venga Venga; Sailing; Great Balls Of Fire (Jerry Lee Lewis song); The Sky Is Falling; The Word Is Goodbye; Check Out This Gorilla; Cotton Eyed Joe; Love’ll Get You High. Additional musicians include: Bob Williams; Michael Dubkin; Ollie Mitchell; & Mayo Tiana. This debut album was produced by Peter Asher, and is an Original 1970 pressing on ATLANTIC RECORDS (8269). Peter Asher is best known as half of Peter & Gordon, and older brother of model Jane Asher, longtime girlfriend of Paul McCartney. After JO Mama, Abigale Haness (with Danny Kootch) did lots of sessions, including Carly Simon, James Taylor and on Bill Wyman's Monkey Grip album. She was also the featured voice of Janet Weiss in the "Rocky Horror Picture Show". If you like Edie Brickell or Suzanne Vega, then you should check out Abigale Haness.

Peter Gallway - On The Bandstand (1978 Vivid Sound)

Artist: Peter Gallway
Title: On The Bandstand
-Premium Edition (6 Bonus Tracks)
Label: Vivid Sound
Catalog#: RATCD-4265
Released: 8 May, 2007
Format: Mini LP Sleeve
Country: Japan
Genre: Rock, Pop Rock
Duration: 01:03:07

Born and raised in New York City, Peter Gallway cut his musical teeth at a time which fostered the talents of the Lovin’ Spoonful, James Taylor, Richie Havens and Laura Nyro. Recording just out of high school with his group The Strangers, he eventually made three albums for the Warner/Reprise label, the first of which was with the highly acclaimed Fifth Avenue Band. His following two solo outings written and recorded in Los Angeles, Ohio Knox and Peter Gallway, led to extensive touring across the United States and Japan.
After five years in Southern California Peter re-located to the state of Maine where he based his touring band, honed his recording skills, and continued to write and eventually produce projects for other artists. 1978 and 1979 saw the release of On the Bandstand for the Vividsound label of Tokyo and Tokyo to Kokomo, an Imagination/Rounder release in the United States.
The 1980’s brought the increased popularity of his band and tours of Japan. His song Sunday Basketball was featured in the film Hoopla for the Basketball Hall Of Fame and he was voted Best Songwriter at the Maine Music Awards. He further collaborated on three acclaimed works of musical theater through the Maine Festival of the Arts and through the Portland Stage Company by way of The National Endowment for the Arts. His sixth album Proof was released through Fishtraks in 1985. Meanwhile his list of production credits was growing to include multiple projects with Devonsquare, Aztec Two-Step, Cormac McCarthy, Tom Pirozzoli, and more.
In 1988 Peter moved back to New York City and produced Cliff Eberhardt, Christine Lavin, Japan’s Bread and Butter and Hawaii’s Kalapana. A second Fifth Avenue Band collection Really was recorded in 1990 and released on the Pony Canyon label of Tokyo and greater involvement with US recording companies led to an A&R consultancy with Shanachie Entertainment. Meanwhile he produced and recorded another collection of his own music Small Good Thing, released through the Gadfly label in 1994. Other projects of that period included Jim Infantino Live, Jabbering Trout, Devonsquare, and sessions with the legendary Laura Nyro. Shortly thereafter, he embarked on the critically acclaimed Astor Place Recordings project Time and Love: the Music of Laura Nyro featuring Rosanne Cash, Jane Siberry, Jill Sobule and Patty Larkin.1998 brought the release of his own live anthology A Night In Time followed by 1999’s autobiographical Redemption, both on the Gadfly label. These were accompanied by the second conceptual collection for Astor Place, the Grammy nominated Bleecker Street: Greenwich Village in the 60’s featuring Chrissie Hynde, Marshall Crenshaw and Suzanne Vega.

Elkin Fowler - ...And Then Came (1969 Columbia)

Artist: Elkin Fowler
Album: ...And Then Came Bubba
Label: Columbia
Catalog: CS 9971
Format: Vinyl, LP
Country: US
Released: 1970
Genre: Rock, Blues Rock, Folk Rock
Duration: 00:35:21

Prior to releasing this album, Elkin “Bubba” Fowler had been involved with The Avant-Garde a psychedelic pop group he formed with Chuck Woolery. Avante-Garde had chart success most notably with the 1968 hit “Naturally Stoned”. The duo released a couple of more singles before disbanding, Woolery became a country artist who released several singles for Warner Brothers and Epic Records, which failed to chart. He eventually became a succesful game show host, while Fowler embarked on a solo as a folk singer. In 1969 Fowler teamed up with Bob Dylan’s producer Bob Johnston releasing “… And Then Came Bubba” an album of rock, blues, folk and orchestrated pop that, thanks to Johnston’s production, comes off sounding like Dylan on several of the tracks. The Dylan connection was further evident in Fowler’s involvement as a back-up musician on subsequent albums by Dylan and Leonard Cohen. - Jack Dominilla
