    Jerk And Twine Time

    Out of print in its original LP format for nearly half a century, this vintage '60s gem has been sourced from the original mono tapes and pressed on 180 gram vinyl, with complete original cover art.

    Jerk and Twine Time emphasizes the raw immediacy of the Knickerbockers' origins as a live band. Beyond the dance-craze anthem "Jerk Town" and the venerable R&B instrumental "Twine Time," the set offers a memorable mix of the British Invasion, R&B and Motown covers that dominated the band's live repertoire at the time, with memorable renditions of the Zombies' "She's Not There" and the Kinks anthems "You Really Got Me" and "All Day and All of the Night." They also tear into the Kingsmen's garage novelty "The Jolly Green Giant," the Motown standard "Money (That's What I Want)" and the R&B classics "Land of 1000 Dances" and "The 'In' Crowd."


    Although the Knickerbockers hailed from Bergenfield, New Jersey, anyone listening to the radio in early 1966 would have sworn that they were from Liverpool. That's when the band's overpoweringly infectious signature tune "Lies" stormed the AM airwaves, convincing many stateside listeners that they were hearing a fab new Beatles single.

    My Generation (50th Anniversary / Super Deluxe)


    Limited Edition 50th Anniversary 3LP-Set


    Includes The Original Mono Album


    Features Mono Bonus Tracks & 11 Of Pete Townshend's Demos From Before The Album's Original Release


    In the half century since its release The Who's debut album MY GENERATION has lost none of it's raw visceral power and still stands as the ultimate musical declaration of teenage rebellion. The title track alone has been covered innumerable times by the likes of Oasis, Green Day, Patti Smith, Billy Joel, Alice Cooper and Iron Maiden amongst many more.


    Back in 1965 the band were considered to be so dangerous that the tailors tasked with turning a Union Jack into a pop art mod jacket for the cover feared that they would be jailed for desecration of the nation's flag.


    The Who's surly demeanor that day in 1965 at London's Surrey Docks and the brazen appropriation of the symbol of state is the best advert possible for MY GENERATION It's an album that sounds like it looks: terse, confrontational and full of youthful angst and energy.


    Brunswick Records first issued MY GENERATION in the UK in December 1965, and later in the US, under the title THE WHO SINGS MY GENERATION, in April 1966. It was produced by Shel Talmy who shot to fame with his work with The Kinks, a group that the teenage Pete Townshend admired greatly.


    During a break in touring in 2015 Pete Townshend discovered tapes in his audio archive featuring previously unheard demos for the album which also included three totally unreleased songs that the other members of The Who hadn't ever even heard, 'The Girls I Could Have Had', 'As Children We Grew'and 'My Own Love'.

    The story behind the bent trumpet


    It is just a few days since the accident that gave the career of the trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie a new boost and made the main figure of this captivating Jazz history appear that bit crazier, that bit more "Dizzier". At the end of the year 1953, according to the legend, Lorraine Gillespie, Dizzy's wife, was celebrating her birthday in Manhattan; there were a lot of musicians, dancers and actors present and, after performing for the birthday girl, Dizzy's trumpet was left lying unattended on the stage while the trumpeter was outside in front of the club giving an interview. The two dancing comedians "Stump & Stumpy" (Jimmy Cross and Eddie Hartman) were capering around the stage and one of them fell on the instrument and damaged it so that the bell was bent upwards at an angle of 45 degrees. Dizzy, the story continues, tried to play the mutilated instrument and noticed just how near to his ear his own sound suddenly was, nearer at least than with a normal trumpet. He had the damaged instrument repaired, but ordered a new trumpet from a manufacturer with exactly the same kink as the accident had caused.


    If all of that is true, the first jazz recording in the archive of today's NDR was played either with the repaired trumpet or with a substitute instrument -Mister Gillespie, who came on the 9th of March 1953 with his quintet for a studio recording to Hamburg's studio 10(which at the time was merged with the Cologne broadcaster under the name of "Nordwestdeutscher Rundfunk" - NWDR), is not only wearing - even though there is no audience - a decorative Tyrolean hat like the popular singing comedian and EX-GI Billy Mo; the ornately decorated trumpet he plays has no kink, it is absolutely straight (as verified in the photos by Susanne Schapowalow). The "old" Dizzy, so to speak, becomes a prominent guest on this remarkable day in Hamburg, and the "new" Dizzy has just ordered his future trade mark from the trumpet manufacturer. "60 Years Jazz in the NDR" could hardly have kicked off more auspiciously.


    In 1953 John Birks Gillespie is 36 years old and a world star in Jazz. Born in 1917 in the small town of Cheraw/South Carolina, the youngest of nine children, he is known in the scene as "Dizzy" because, alongside the inventors of bebop Charlie Parker and Bud Powell, he likes to play the mad intellectual with goatee beard, Basque beret and round sunglasses. He cultivates the role of provocateur, in 1964 he even stands for election as president of the USA. However, the history of bebop has already been written when he comes to Hamburg in the spring of 1953; now the time has come for Dizzy, the spirited oddball, to reinvent himself - until in 1968 with a grandiose big band at the Berlin Jazz Festival and from then on, again and again, he sets important milestones in a great career, including NDR concerts of course. He never switches styles and sounds as drastically as, for example, Miles Davis - Dizzy was always Dizzy - but ever new musical formations led up to the "United Nations Orchestra" with whom he guested in the last years before his death on 6 January 1993 all over the world including on northern German festival stages. As often as possible, the recording vans of NDR were always there.


    In March 1953, Gillespie is accompanied by the baritone saxophonist Bill Graham, a musician who in the years beforehand had been part of the "Dee Gee Days", the "Savoy Sessions" (the album of this title became a classic of modern Jazz). Graham contributed not only magnificent solos in the sessions such as now in Hamburg; he also wrote "Oh-sho-be-do-be" a light-hearted ditty about the whispered conversations of young lovers which became a genuine classic in Gillespie's repertoire. At the piano in the Hamburg studio sits Wade Legge, barely thirty years old at the time, and one of the greatest but highly underestimated and unfortunately almost forgotten talents of the time. Legge's partner of many years, Lou Hackney, plays bass, and Al Jones is on percussion.


    Among other places, this European tour also brought the band to Paris; they recorded five tracks on a stop at the Hamburg studio. Gershwin's "They Can't Take That Away From Me" and "Alone Together" by Arthur Schwartz and Howard Dietz are followed by two of those compositions laced with Latino rhythms that Dizzy had developed with the percussionist Chano Pozo and the arranger Gil Fuller: "Manteca" and "Tin-Tin-Deo". The short but extremely sweet program ends with "I Can't Get Started", a masterpiece for posterity written by Vernon Duke and Ira Gershwin.


    The power of imagination is really not sufficient to conceive of the interaction of Gillespie's quintet with the other band in this studio session - or how on this 9th of March what was probably the most important modern quintet in the German-speaking world performed alongside Dizzy. Hans Koller had formed the band around himself. Koller was born in 1921 in Vienna. After time spent as an American prisoner of war, in 1946 he returned to his home city to found a Jazz club, and the saxophone sound he made his own influenced at least a generation. The trombonist Albert Mangelsdorff was not even 25 years old in March 1953, and it is not so long since he swapped the guitar for the trombone as a professional musician. Jutta Hipp is the pianist. Born in Leipzig in 1935, she was regarded as the greatest piano talent of her time; her career took off vertically, but ended abruptly and tragically shortly after she moved to the USA. She never played piano again and she never returned to Germany. She died in 2003 in New York, almost completely forgotten. Shorty Roeder on bass and the percussionist Karl Sanner are the top rhythmists of their age - and this band of twenty-somethings (Koller is the oldest at 32, and with a certain amount of bravado he christened them the "New Jazz Stars") is showing quite clearly that Jazz in Europe wants to and will take other paths than Dizzy in the motherland of the genre.


    Koller selected some quite standard fare; "The Way You Look Tonight" is followed by "Indian Summer", "You Go to My Head" is followed by "All the Things You Are". Old friends, all very familiar - but the interpretation that the quintet gives these tracks is cooler than anything considered cool or fashionable up to then in the USA. What would have been going through Mr. Gillespie's keen mind when he heard just how uncompromisingly these young Krauts and Koller were advancing the renewal of music which had begun to develop further and beyond the Dizzy standard at home in the USA ?


    Anyone in the NWDR studio in Hamburg on the 9th of March 1953 who could read minds would probably have witnessed an international dialogue, which has ever since repeatedly influenced the Jazz world. "60 years Jazz in the NDR" - and what an event stands at the very beginning!
