Excellent addition to any prog-rock music collection
Only released in Great Britain, Germany and Australia (New Zealand) in October, 1970, “FRESH EAR” from D, B, M & T was their one and only albums. So off the beaten path is this, that in over 20 years of living and breathing power pop, this release has never come up in passing on any compilation tapes or mentions in tens of thousands of email exchanges with music fans since the early 90s.
Universal Music is pleased to announce the release of the definitive Fotheringay collection, Nothing More: The Collected Fotheringay. This 3CD set is the most comprehensive compilation yet of the group’s recordings, including hitherto unseen television footage, previously unreleased live recordings from a festival in Rotterdam (both from August 1970) and, for the first time, the official release of the seven existing tracks which Fotheringay recorded in session for BBC radio.
Shadoks reissues this Norwegian heavy rock album from Finjarn & Jensen, originally released in 1970 only in Norway (on the Columbia imprint via EMI Norsk A/S). Guitarist, vocalist, composer and artist Svein Finjarn can be safely called a legend in American rock. He began playing guitar and acting before he was 10 years old, and in the fall of 1961, he became the first Norwegian to play in a rock band with a fender Stratocaster.

Although tenor saxophonist Dexter Gordon seemed to have been largely forgotten in the U.S. during his long residence in Europe, he was playing in prime form during the period and made occasional trips back to America. On this CD reissue, Gordon teams up with pianist Wynton Kelly (one of his last recordings), bassist Sam Jones and drummer Roy Brooks for an obscure original ("Evergreenish"), "The Jumpin' Blues," the veteran ballad "For Sentimental Reasons" and three songs that were long a part of Gordon's repertoire: "Star Eyes," "Rhythm-A-Ning" and "If You Could See Me Now." Dexter Gordon is in fine form on the excellent straightahead bop set.
