THE EARTH ANGELS DEBUT CD "STREET CORNER STYLE - OUT NOW!
Meet The Earth Angels!
Rare Rockin’ Records is proud to present Street Corner Style by The Earth Angels, a trio of very talented singers from Barcelona, Spain.
The voices of these three young men blend together to form the group’s own unique sound, as they recreate the Doo Wop and Vocal Group Harmony styles of the late 1950’s and early 1960’s.
With this debut CD released March 22, 2010, The Earth Angels embark on a glorious Doo Wop revival by remaking very obscure songs which were initially recorded between 1958 and 1964, as well performing two of their own original compositions.
If you love classic Doo Wop and the sound of groups like The Crests, The Five Satins, Dion & The Belmonts, The Miracles, The Earls, and Little Anthony & The Imperials, then this CD is for you!
There is a great mix of uptempo songs and ballads, plus, it is packaged with a fantastic 32 page booklet that contains cool photos, information about the group’s members, biographies and all song lyrics.
This group is the real deal--they truly bring back the sound of doo wop and vocal group harmony, street corner style!

REVIEW: RARE BACHARACH (Rare Rockin’ Records 1027)
Mr. Ash Wells has come up with another winner! The first in a line of Songwriter Master Series releases, the legendary Burt Bacharach is profiled with 32 of his compositions featured on this compact disc. Also featured are some of the finest songwriters Burt collaborated with, including Hal David. This disc covers his early years (1958-1965), and there are many rare treats to be had here!
First off, let me say that this is the finest packaging that I have seen for any release of this nature. The 24 page booklet is crammed with obscure and helpful information, and is obviously written with a passion for this great music. Many pictures are also featured, so you can place the music with faces and record labels.
The booklet is so well written, that I find it hard to do a whole review. Below, I have detailed some of my very favorite tracks from the new release, and for the rest, you’ll just have to buy this release and check out the liner notes for the rest!
Richard Anthony-Too Late To Worry-French 60s pop sensation Richard Anthony covered this Bacharach track in 1963 for release in the UK. The melody is classic teen, as well as classic Bacharach. Richard has such a great voice and belts it out like there’s no tomorrow. If you like this, check out Hideaway Heaven vol. 7 on RRR for his “More Than I Can Say”.
Joey Powers-Don’t Envy Me-Bacharach and David in Gene Pitney mode for this 1962 RCA release. Of course, the duo were writing hit after hit for Pitney at the time, and it makes one wonder if this was rejected by Pitney. It certainly would have made a fine album track or B Side. This version has a really great backing, with strings, girl chorus, horns. What really catches my attention, besides the great vocal by Powers, is the top rate drumming!
The Exotics-Manpower-Here’s a cool little record in the mold of Gene McDaniels hits of the day. A strong vocal and awesome melody put this one over the top. You just have to hear this one once and you’ll be hooked!
Lonnie Sattin-The Hurtin Kind- One of two previously unreleased demos on the disc. This one sounds like some of the stuff that Bacharach-David were pitching to Scepter stars like Chuck Jackson and Tommy Hunt. The melody, at times, also reminds me of “Sea Of Love” by Phil Phillips. Very nice!
Tina Robin-Sinner’s Devotion-Here’s the other demo presented on this disc. It’s very Shirelles-esque, in the mold of “Baby It’s You”. It’s great to see that Bacharach was always keeping up with the times, trying to write the follow-up hit for every popular artist!
George Hamilton-Errand Of Mercy-Great backing on this one! Strings, baion drums, and George’s double tracked vocals make this outstanding. Although it’s from 1964, it’s still in that 1962 style. In fact, on this record, George sounds like a white Gene McDaniels, and it’s very impressive!
Steve Alaimo-Lifetime Of Loneliness- Everyone knows the great Steve Alaimo, so I don’t have to say anything about that great soulful voice of his. This comes out sounding like “Darling Take Me Back” by Lenny Welch, two years before that was even recorded!
Paul Anka-To Wait For Love-As Ash notes in the liners, this song has been recorded by many. I am proud to say, that in my opinion, RRR has issued the best out of all of them. This isn’t the Paul Anka you know, it’s very different! Soft, double tracked vocals, almost in the Bobby Vee mode. Horns and strings, too. Apparently, it was only released in the UK, which is a shame, because it’s one of Anka’s finest moments on wax. Also check out Jay & The Americans version, from 1965 as well.
Janie Marden-This Empty Place-As with the above track, this has been recorded by many. This version features a powerful vocal and is not unlike Dionne Warwick’s take on it. Very classy. Also, I urge you to compare this with The Searchers top notch version, and see which one you like the best!
And I’ve only hit the top of the iceburg. There are so many more gems for you to discover on this new release.
If you only make one purchase this month, make it Rare Bacharach. You won’t be disappointed!
