Tomorrow is Vinyl Record Day so, for the third year in a row, Bloggerhythms will help celebrate and reminisce about our old friend, the phonograph record. This year we’re going to find out why 45 RPM records have much larger holes than 78s and 33s. Believe it or not I often wondered about this burning question when I was collecting hundreds of these little seven inch gems back the s. According to several websites, including Answerbag , the reason for the large hole used by 45s was simple. It was difficult for the old 78s, with their smaller holes, to find their way onto jukebox spindles. The large hole effectively eliminated that problem. Strangely, seven inch 45s were often pressed with the smaller holes used for LPs in many countries outside the United States, especially in the United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand.

Much of his music can be seen as both of its time and blatantly reacting against it, often resulting in a fascinating tension that at its best is really distinct music and at its worst can be flailing. Generally speaking it’s more the former here, though some songs like “Sweet Bird of Truth,” with its all too stiff yupfunk undercarriage not quite letting Johnson ‘s snarling vocal work as it should, don’t connect. His Hank Williams tribute is only represented by “I Saw the Light,” but that alone has to rank as one of the most unique and yet still honestly affectionate covers of that song yet.
The limited-edition two-disc version is the one to hunt down thanks to the contents of that second disc — eight remixes of various singles including a couple not on the main disc itself, like “Gravitate to Me”. As good as “Infected” is, it’s the 12″ version that’s the real monster. About the only misstep is the lack of anything from the debut Burning Blue Soul , but hopefully a planned second volume will cover that among other things.

Shimmer into Nature was recorded and inspired by the different locations Ed travelled to over three years: Ed comments, “The idea is to transport the listener to a place where the everyday ups and downs of the world dissipate, leaving the mind free to wander through a colourful, omnidirectional guitar and synth driven musical landscape for a while, landing eventually, hopefully freshly charged, with a smile and a calmer spirit.

I celebrate myself, and sing myself, And what I assume you shall assume, For every atom belonging to me as good belongs to you. I loafe and invite my soul, I lean and loafe at my ease observing a spear of summer grass. My tongue, every atom of my blood, form’d from this soil, this air, Born here of parents born here from parents the same, and their parents the same, I, now thirty-seven years old in perfect health begin, Hoping to cease not till death.
Creeds and schools in abeyance, Retiring back a while sufficed at what they are, but never forgotten, I harbor for good or bad, I permit to speak at every hazard, Nature without check with original energy. The atmosphere is not a perfume, it has no taste of the distillation, it is odorless, It is for my mouth forever, I am in love with it, I will go to the bank by the wood and become undisguised and naked, I am mad for it to be in contact with me.
Have you reckon’d a thousand acres much? Have you practis’d so long to learn to read? Have you felt so proud to get at the meaning of poems? Stop this day and night with me and you shall possess the origin of all poems, You shall possess the good of the earth and sun, there are millions of suns left, You shall no longer take things at second or third hand, nor look through the eyes of the dead, nor feed on the spectres in books, You shall not look through my eyes either, nor take things from me, You shall listen to all sides and filter them from your self.
There was never any more inception than there is now, Nor any more youth or age than there is now, And will never be any more perfection than there is now, Nor any more heaven or hell than there is now. Urge and urge and urge, Always the procreant urge of the world.

We revisit the club that brought nightlife to the deepest edge of downtown, welcomed legends like the Ramones and Beastie Boys, and transformed resident DJ Chris Sheppard into a globe-trotting superstar. Before the mid s, the bottom of Jarvis Street, along Queens Quay, was not a clubbing destination. Here, they laid the foundations for an entertainment complex that they would not be able to fully realize.

Click Here for next page of Columbia labels Columbia is an important player in the history of recorded music, having been in the business of making phonographs and records since Because of patents held by both Columbia and Victor during the first few decades of the 20th century, they held a virtual duopoly over recorded music. My goal here isn’t to give you the full history of Columbia. I defer you to other published works. Nor is this website a complete listing of labels produced by Columbia.
These are only the labels in my own collection. To start, the first label is the Climax label.

His customers were working-class Southern blacks and whites who, drawn by good paying factory jobs of the World War Two economic boom, had recently moved north to the Cincinnati area. By , Nathan had borrowed money from friends and family, rented an old building and launched his own label – King Records. He hired white artists and black artists and marketed his records directly to local working-class whites and blacks.
This cross-pollination of musical styles would be a major infulence for later artists in the development of rockabilly and popular rock and roll. Nathan wanted King to be a self-contained record company that could record, master, press, print and ship records entirely in-house. He created a subsidary company, Royal Plastics, to handle the pressing of records. In the early ‘s, a growing market for recording local artists was recognized.
As the seven inch wide, 45 rpm format became popular many local artists and groups wanted to record their own record and try their luck in the booming music business. Sometime during , King began to market their custom pressing services to local musicians. Over the next 15 years, King produced thousands of releases for small, independent labels and artists.

How do you listen to music? Students will likely suggest their phones and computers. Also encourage them to think about whether they use speakers or headphones. How do you think your parents listened to music when they were your age?
As an example, Vala Reegan’s “Fireman” has on the right hand side of the label, and 66C on the left. So does that make it a 64 or a 66 record?
November 3, Archie Bleyer was 43 years old when he founded his own record label in December, He called it Cadence, and set up headquarters on 49th Street in Manhattan. An orchestra leader, Bleyer was well known as a regular on Arthur Godfrey’s TV shows, which were Immensely popular in the mid s. Another regular on the Godfrey shows was Julius LaRosa, a young singer, and the immediate reason for Bleyer’s forming Cadence was to give LaRosa a recording vehicle.
Bleyer’s orchestra usually backed up LaRosa’s performances on TV, and it was a natural arrangement for the two to go into the recording field together. The first Cadence single release, Cadence , was “Anywhere I Wander” by LaRosa with Blyer’s orchestra, and it shot onto the national top 30 immediately, giving the new label a dose of instant success. The followup effort “My Lady Loves To Dance,” sold moderately well during the spring of , but failed to chart nationally. But in September, the third LaRosa single again tore up the charts, landing at number two.
This one was an Italian-flavored novelty song, “Eh, Cumpari,” which helped win LaRosa the award as best new male vocalist for LaRosa was the only artist signed to the label for almost its first year of existence. In October , Bleyer finally got around to signing some other artists to the label. For this occasion, Bleyer started a new numbering series with The new series was short-lived three records and years later, when the regular series reached , other discs were issued with that number, the early singles apparently long forgotten.
Although none of these new signings amounted to many sales, Bleyer shortly thereafter signed another group from the Godfrey show, the Chordettes, who in provided Cadence’ with its first number one hit, “Mr.

Brutus’ live performances reached a pinnacle with a sold out performance at Toronto’s Ontario Place. Bachman—Turner Overdrive is a Canadian rock group from Winnipeg, Manitoba, that had a series of hit albums and singles in the s, selling over 7 million albums in that decade alone. Their s catalogue included five Top 40 albums and six U.
Top 40 singles ten in Canada. The band has sold nearly 30 million albums worldwide, and has fans affectionately known as “gearheads” derived from the band’s gear-shaped logo.

The next year, Bob Dylan hired them for his U. Following the tour, the group moved with Dylan to Saugerties, New York, where they made the informal recordings that became The Basement Tapes, which forged the basis for their debut album Music from Big Pink.
Because they were always “the band” to various frontmen, Helm said the name “the Band” worked well when the group came into its own. The group began performing officially as the Band in , and went on to release ten studio albums.
