Title:
The Great Irish Songbook
Release Date: 8/17/2018
Format: LP
List Price: (A49) $49.98 

Years after the release of his million-selling hit 'Amarillo", Tony Christie rounds off his long career with a nostalgic trip to his family's Irish roots - and has produced an Irish folk album of the very highest musical and audio quality. For this project he was able to acquire the services of the band "Ranagri", who have worked with such international luminaries as Peter Gabriel, Stevie Wonder and Ennio Morricone. Twelve of the most beautiful Irish folk classics including for instance "Wild Mountain Thyme" and "Carrickfergus", were recorded by Christie and the band in the Grammy-nominated Stockfisch Studio in Northeim, where producer Gunter Pauler has earned an international reputation for the unusually high sound-quality of his work. Ranagri (pronounced Ran-ag-rye) is a venture from four musicians who have come together to create some exciting new sounds. Consisting of flutes, ethnic flutes, electric harp, bodhran, guitar, bouzouki and vocals, Ranagri fuse worldwide folk music with quality contemporary song writing, enhanced by virtuosic instrumentals, vibrant rhythms and haunting melodies, all interlaced with vivid storytelling. Heavy Weight High Quality 33rpm 180 gram Vinyl LP. Made in Germany. Mastering by Hans-Jorg Maucksch at Pauler Acoustics.

Where Dreams Are Made
Release Date: 8/17/2018
Format: LP
List Price: (A49) $49.98 

Irish songwriter, composer, vocalist, musician and poet, Brian Flanagan has worked with artists from diverse musical backgrounds such as Michael Flatley, Nadine Coyle, Eric Bibb, Nathan Carter, Finbar Furey, Brian Kennedy and Sharon Shannon. Brian is renowned for his ability to write to order, emotionally charged pieces that are immediately engaging. Love, loss, self-pity, recognizing chances and taking them - or not, almost mystical nature experiences, life-changing encounters, art and artists, environmental protection, human rights: it is truly a broad, moving and very current spectrum of themes which Irish singer-songwriter Brian Flanagan has worked through in the eleven tracks on this Audiophile 180 gram Vinyl LP. The listening experience gets a further deeper dimension if you read the song lyrics with their surprising images in the graphically opulent 4-page 12" x 12" leaflet. Direct Metal Mastering 33rpm Pressed on High Quality 180 Gram Vinyl! Made in Germany. Mastering by Hans-Jorg Maucksch at Pauler Acoustics.

Exposed
Release Date: 7/6/2018
Format: LP
List Price: (B28) $28.98 

(5% DISCOUNT THRU 6-22-18) Millie Jackson has never had the full recognition she deserves as one of the great soul voices of the 70s as her theatrical 'rap' material became her signature sound. With "Exposed" we go a long way to rectifying that with a dozen remixes by producer/engineer Steve Levine. Steve has piloted hits for a very wide range of artists from Culture Club's huge chart successes to the Beach Boys and Motörhead, having collected a Grammy along the way for his work with Deniece Williams.

Suitcase Breakdown
Release Date: 7/20/2018
Format: CD
List Price: (A19) $19.98 

Until relatively recently, hearsay and rumour have been the only unreliable source available for would-be Bobbie Leecan biographers – but now, thanks to the perseverance of some dedicated researchers, Leecan is no longer a biographical blank and these notes contain much new information about this great musician. A high quality audio appreciation of Bobbie Leecan’s recorded work has long been overdue and as usual, we, at Frog Records, are most proud of the sonic results achieved. However, an essential inclusion to the contents of this release is Leecan’s only solo coupling recorded as ‘Blind Bobbie Baker’ for Pathé/Perfect in 1927. Unfortunately, this rare original suffers from stripped grooves and other hard-to-deal with problems. It is hoped that this compromise between surface noise and extensive restoration will not diminish the listener's enjoyment.

Title:
Delta Blues
Release Date: 7/27/2018
Format: LP

(LP + MP3) Arguably the greatest recordings of the great Fred McDowell’s career were the two albums for Arhoolie, recorded at the height of the blues revival in 1964-65. This is the first of those two and an absolutely stunning piece of delta blues majesty. A stripped down beauty that is reissued here on high quality vinyl with an exact reproduction of the paste-on sleeve. Includes download card. Limited edition of 500 on translucent bottleneck brown vinyl.

Planet Beat - From The Shel Talmy Vaults
Release Date: 7/6/2018
Format: CD
List Price: (B16) $16.98 

(5% DISCOUNT THRU 6-22-18) Big Beat is proud to announce that we have recently accessed one of the most worthy vaults known to UK 1960s rock history: the archives of producer Shel Talmy, the man behind 'You Really Got Me,' 'My Generation' and dozens of other signature records of Swinging Britain's mid-60s glory days. Planet Beat" gathers two-dozen nuggets from the unlocked Talmy vault to present an unprecedented overview of his achievement in the beat group category. There are alternative versions of classics like the Breadcrumbs' 'Everybody Knows' and the First Gear's 'Leave My Kitten Alone,' with a young Jimmy Page tearing it up on the fuzz. Rare items from the Rising Sons and Untamed join choice gems from the Planet discography along with unreleased excitement from the likes of the Liberators, Johnny B Great and Imp-Acts. Everything on "Planet Beat" is drawn from the first generation master tapes and comes with copious illustrations and notes by compiler Alec Palao. A feast for anyone interested in the golden era of British beat.

Make Mine Mondo!
Release Date: 7/6/2018
Format: CD
List Price: (B20) $20.98 

(5% DISCOUNT THRU 6-22-18) Quirky in the extreme, "Make Mine Mondo!" does what it says on the tin and then some. Culled from the vaults of the eccentric Doré label, fuzzed-out garage bands, wayward rockabillies and mental instrumentalists cook up a melée of mondo mayhem in long-ago Los Angeles. Comprising 11 extremely rare and sought after garage band singles (nine previously uncompiled and new to CD); eight previously uncompiled instrumentals (also new to CD) and several unreleased rock'n'roll/R&B numbers, all remastered for legitimate first-time release, "Make Mine Mondo!" screams for attention in the busy collectors' market.

Title:
Retro
Release Date: 7/11/2018
Format: CD
List Price: (B13) $13.98 

The idea for "Retro" came about as the container housing all Rick's equipment was being loaded into a truck on the Isle of Man to begin the journey to its new home in England. As more and more flight cases were opened to check contents, his engineer and co-producer Erik Jordan was coming out with comments such as "What on earth is that? That's got to be older than me!" And "When was the last time you plugged that in?" Erik then said "You know it would be great to make an album just using vintage keyboards. No midi, no sequencing...just raw performance on original instruments. Proper drum kit, the whole works just like it used to be!" This 10 track project features "Just Another Day," "Mr. Lonely," "One In The Eye," "Men In Suits." (Previously deleted:7/1/15. Original release date:4/7/06)
