FROM SACRED TO SECULAR: A Soul Awakening

January 01, 2020

The History of Soul

In a comprehensive overview from 1927 to 1963, History of Soul Records’ 8CD anthology covers the genesis of soul music, tracing connections between R&B, jazz and blues, and gospel, the secular and the sacred. As popular black musical genres were adopted by white teenage audiences in the 1950s, black music reverted to more authentic, basic styles. By 1960, the sound of black popular music had turned away from a driving, largely uptempo rhythm and blues towards a more emotionally poignant style. The term ‘soul’ popped up here and there, but only became common parlance after the release of Ray Charles’s I Believe To My Soul at the end of 1959.

SIX BY SEVEN - The Closer You Get | Six By Seven Greatest Hits

January 03, 2023

Beggars Arkive

Nottingham’s finest rock export Six By Seven are set to release a double vinyl reissue of their 2000 classic The Closer You Get, with an additional LP of Peel Sessions and B-sides, as well as a Greatest Hits CD, both to be released via Beggars Arkive on 17 February 2017. To coincide with the releases, the band will be bringing together their original line-up for the first time in sixteen years for a triumphant return to the stage with a special show at The Maze in Nottingham on 4 March (which is now sold out) as well a one-off London show at The Garage on 11 March.

 

Despite heaping praise on Six by Seven’s breakthrough second album The Closer You Get, the press seemed confused as to how to categorise them. The band straddled a fine line between post-Brit Pop, British rock and a much edgier kind of punk. Inspired by the Pistols and the Stranglers as well as US bands such as Sonic Youth and Mercury Rev, Six By Seven consciously wanted to write songs that would get played on the radio, as Chris Olley explains: “We wanted to fill a gap I think, fill it with the sort of music we would like to hear and buy ourselves; sort of Captain Beefheart doing pop.”

The Closer You Get reissue will be presented in all its former glory, without being remastered or tampered with, and will sound the same as it did when it originally came out. In homage to Beggars Arkive’ re-release of Olley’s heroes and labelmates, Mercury Rev’s Yerself Is Steam, the additional LP will be polybagged together with the album. It will feature Six By Seven’s third Peel session on one side and various b-sides and other Peel sessions on the other. The “Greatest Hits” CD will include a celebratory selection of songs from across their seven studio albums.

ORK RECORDS: New York New York

January 03, 2023

Numero Group

In August of 1975, the world’s first punk record label was born. Ork Records: New York, New York is a tale of Terry Ork, a film-obsessed fugitive of Warhol’s Factory set. Ork’s impresario ear would pull damaged, literate new rock music from the pregnant Bowery grime of CBGB, resulting in debut 45s by Television and Richard Hell, as well as landmark recordings by the Feelies and Lester Bangs. It’s a tale of Charles Ball, who’d steer Ork Records through solo exploits by Big Star’s Alex Chilton and the dBs’ Chris Stamey. And it’s a tale told across 4 LPs (or 2 CDs) in scorching sides by Richard Lloyd, Marbles, Prix, Mick Farren, Cheetah Chrome, the Idols, the Erasers, the Revelons, Student Teachers, and more. The deluxe 190-page hardback book features evocative, unseen imagery, a portal opened by on-the-scene photojournalists as crucial to documenting punk’s conception in the squalid Lower East Side as the walls of CBGB itself. Ork Records: New York, New York is a visionary glimpse of punk and new wave as invented, nurtured, feted, and forgotten by the street-level artisans who attended the genres’ arrival.

GARY NUMAN - Replicas | The Pleasure Principle | Telekon

May 28, 2023

Beggars Arkive

Gary Numan is a pioneer, and his influence on so many artists is unmistakable and grand. Gary’s style connects him with fans of multiple genres... electronic, industrial, indie-rock, metal, etc. He remains an innovator, and his fan base continues to grow.
 
The LP versions of these albums have had scattered availability over the years, and we’re pleased to put them back in print widely again. All the albums are on standard black vinyl and have been cut from high-resolution digital files (96 khz / 24 bit transfers from the analog master tapes) by award-winning engineer John Dent at loud mastering. Replicas and The Pleasure Principle are single LPs and Telekon is a double LP.
