1 - HOLT, FELIX -& THE RADICALS- - THE NEXT BIG NOBODY - (CD) 
MAIDEN VOYAGE


"Its not necessarily about making something new and original. The challenge is to find something fresh in whats been around a long time; there are fundamentals and why would you change them? Its about making something I enjoy thats both familiar and surprising." Felix Holt & The Radicals present their debut album The Next Big Nobody, recorded in an analogue studio in Northern Spain, in keeping with Felixs long-established fascination, almost-obsession, with the sound of early rocknroll and the recording techniques holding sway from the prime of Sam Phillips at Sun through to Tom Wilsons sessions with Bob Dylan.

2 - SENIOR, HENRY JR. - PLATES OF MEAT - (CD) 
MAIDEN VOYAGE


As pedal steel player for Danny And The Champions Of The World these last few years Henry has become one of the finest steel players around, as this startling album will testify. A fervent, exciting mix of Allman Brothers jam band grit, The Headhunters intoxicating funk and Booker T and The MGs soulful elegance, Plates Of Meat is a record that will appeal not just to lovers of pedal steel guitar but to anyone with a sense of playful adventure. The album, recorded at Reservoir Studios in North London, produced by Chris Clarke and features all members of The Champs. On first hearing David Gilmours gliding intro to Breathe, Henry, a 14 year old electric guitarist, decided the future was fretless. Helped by his father, he built six-string lap steel from some timber, an old pickup and some square doorknobs, and started to slide inspired and encouraged by likes of BJ Cole, a regular on the London music scene and pedal steel legend. After some years of playing gigs and sessions around Londons Country and Americana scene, he joined Danny and the Champions of the World, whose rootsy but experimental approach has provided both an education in music and room to find his own sound."I wanted to use the pedal steel outside its traditional context. Picking up rhythm parts that guitar players or keyboard players would play, and using sounds and effects that they use," notes Senior. "Instrumentals are no a guilty pleasure. They grant the listener insight into the pleasure of performance - the artist is sharing their love of the instrument with anyone willing to come along for the ride."Plates Of Meat underlines Seniors high standing in the pedal steel world and highlights what is possible on an instrument so long sidelined in the country world. As displayed here on this wonderfully inventive debut, Senior aims to bring this amazing instrument to a new audience

4 - WHEATLEY, DONALD BYRON - MOONDOGS AND MAD DOGS - (CD) 
MAIDEN VOYAGE


The album, recorded at Reservoir Studios in North London under the watchful gaze of producers Chris Clarke (Danny And The Champions Of The World) and John Wheatley (Suburban Dirts), introduces the songs of Donald Byron Wheatley, each and every one reflecting on his life as a showman and that of his family who been ingrained into a way of life for over a century. Essentially a paean to his father, 'Big Don' Wheatley, Moondogs And Mad Dogs is unapologetically imbued with the sprit of Van Morrison, Dylan, The Band, Lennon et al, all musicians that have played a major part in both Donald's and his father life. Driven by an honest heart and a pure desire to make an album his father would have loved, Wheatley has produced something very special indeed - an innocent, loving musical tribute that stands alone as a remarkable debut. The band features various members of Danny And The Champions Of The World - Chris Clarke, Steve Brookes, Andy Fairclough - alongside Siobhan Parr and pedal steel legend BJ Cole. The music of Donald Wheatley is easily as lively as the characters who people his songs, a natural tangle of early rocknroll, raucous blues, sweet folk and a most unique phrasing of Americana - countrified rock thats as unique to Wheatley as The Bands own Canadian take on American music, or Van Morrisons Caledonian vision of soul. The sound is relaxed, down-home and upbeat, with a warm fireside vibe and the joyous, charismatic and intimate feel of a well-lubricated after-hours jam session. Its funky as hell in places (the sinful, bedroom-eyed Josephine), powerful and resonant in others (the scorched When The Rain Comes).

TRACKLISTING: 01. Life's A Beach 02. Smoking Gun 03. The Lonesome Carol Of Big Don 04. Not Tonight Josepephine 05. Ten Dollar Jenny 06. Hand Me Down Leopard Skin Hat 07. Fighting For Sunlight 08. When The Rain Comes 09. Nothing 10. Swaley Howell 11. Greenwich Village Blues 12. Moondogs And Mad Dogs
