Description

GEORGIE FAME was one of the most successful British solo artists of the Sixties and is still performing to this day, renowned for his ability to bridge the gap between jazz & pop (now a winning formula, of course). THE TWO FACES OF FAME was Georgies debut album for CBS back in 1967, as part of the labels high profile Fame In 67 campaign. Reflecting the fact that Georgie meant different things to different people, the album was split between live recordings from a show at Londons Royal Festival Hall & studio sessions. The LP sold well, reaching the Top 30. Instead of marketing Georgie as an R&B artist with his backing band The Blue Flames, CBS saw Georgie solely as a solo star and promoted their new acquisition aggressively across the year, culminating in the #1 success of the single The Ballad Of Bonnie & Clyde. This remastered & expanded double-disc edition of THE TWO FACES OF FAME offers both mono & stereo mixes of the original album. Also included are all of Georgies As & Bs from that year. The Digipak package also boasts exhaustive sleeve-notes and a host of photos and rare images, offering a long-overdue reappraisal of Georgie Fames first year at CBS Records, capturing a star at the pinnacle of his success. Thereafter, he would enjoy a long and illustrious career but he never again enjoyed being such a regular fixture on the pop charts.COVERAGE ON RELEVANT WEBSITES & FANZINES Esoteric Antenna is delighted to announce the release of a live album by legendary guitarist STEVE HACKETT and the gifted Hungarian group DJABE. Summer Storms and Rocking Rivers was captured at a concert in Bratislava in July 2011 and a concert in Budapest in November 2012. The music within this release features well known Steve Hackett solo material such as The Steppes and Ace of Wands, alongside legendary Genesis material such as Firth of Fifth, Blood on the Rooftops, In That Quiet Earth and Los Endos. The DVD (NTSC Region Free) included in this two disc set features a concert in Bratislava in July 2011 and also includes bonus features of a short documentary, the piece Jacuzzi / Overnight Sleeper, recorded in November 2013 with the Hungarian Symphony Orchestra and the promotional video of the song Tears for Peace.
