Label: Merge Records | Release Year: 2015

To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Spoon classic, Merge will release a deluxe limited-edition version of Gimme Fiction on double-LP (180g) and double-CD. The reissue contains the album remastered by Howie Weinberg from the original tapes, a second disc with 12 previously unreleased demos from the era, nine additional bonus tracks via digital download, and a full-color book containing photos and an extensive oral history of the making of the album. The deluxe LP package will also include a 24” x 36” poster. Gimme Fiction dragged the sonic pointillism of Kill the Moonlight further into dub-influenced weirdness as the increasingly confident Spoon went crazy in the studio, experimenting with everything from warped hip-hop samples to horse whinnies.

This 19 track collection brings together Horne's best tracks, displaying his rhythmic singing. Artists signed to the TK labels would often work on one another's album. For Jimmy 'Bo' Horne, this meant the backing on many of his songs was performed by Harry Casey and Rick Finch, better known as KC & The Sunshine Band. On this Greatest Hits collection 13 of the songs are backed by KC & The Sunshine Band, with the delightful opener 'Spank' being typical of the Sunshine band disco sound. 'Dance Across The Floor' was Horne's second single and biggest hit, encouraging all party-goers to shake their booty and solidifying his reputation as a disco king. Horne's first 12 inch single was 'Get Happy' with 'Gimme Some' on the b-side, both of which have been included here. Horne also recorded his own ballad version of '(They Long To Be ) Close To You', putting his own disco soul stamp on the classic Carpenters song - it is included here amongst the disco gems.

It's a little problematic to put together a compilation of such an album-oriented artist. But unless you're very deeply into the Leon Russell catalog, this two-CD, 40-track best-of will serve as a retrospective of all that you need, largely covering his work from the first half of the '70s (a couple of songs from his 1992 Virgin album are also included) and featuring his best-known hits, big and small. It's a well-done tour through his blend of swamp rock, gospel, and bits of blues and country, with material from eight of his Shelter LPs, including the one he recorded in 1969 as part of the Asylum Choir. Interesting rarities include a 1974 single of "Wild Horses," a 1970 cover of Dylan's "She Belongs to Me" that only showed up on a compilation, and a folk-rockish 1965 single for Dot.
