Originally cut for the Japanese Baystate label and then later released by French RCA, this trio set by pianist Duke Jordan (with bassist Harry Memmery and drummer James Martin in Holland) differs from his usual recordings in putting an emphasis on blues, although not exclusively. Jordan performs six of his originals (including "No Problem," "Ben Sugar Blues," "Jordu" and "From Duke to Duke") plus "All the Things You Are," "C Jam Blues" and "St. Louis Blues." The classic bebop pianist's consistency holds up on this set (cut when he was 61), making the obscure LP worth searching for.
Japanese limited edition issue of the album classic in a deluxe, miniaturized LP sleeve replica of the original vinyl album artwork. Digitally remastered edition of the Irish guitar legend's 1976 album. Rory's eighth solo album, Calling Card was recorded during 1976 at the famed Musicland Studios in Munich. All of Rory's previous releases had been self produced, for this album he was keen to find a producer who had an affinity with traditional Rock values but who was open to new ideas. Roger Glover, Deep Purple's bassist, offered his services to Rory, seeming to be a perfect candidate to produce the album. The band, Gerry McAvoy on bass, Lou Martin on keyboards and Rod de'Ath on drums added the final element to the 'creative' mix. In the three years they had been performing together they had grown into a formidable band.

Let's Stick Together is a 1976 album by Bryan Ferry. His third solo release, it was his first following the disbandment of Roxy Music earlier in the year. Unlike Ferry’s two previous solo recordings, Let’s Stick Together was not a dedicated album project, instead being made up of material released as singles, B-sides and an EP. With a highly popular title track, it had a generally favourable critical reception, but only just made the UK Top 20.
