Still Remember - The Black Nasty - The Black Nasty (CD, Album)
Though none were notable successes, she continued her involvement in the artistic side of the music business by encouraging her drummer son, Artwellwhen he formed a band in the mid-'60s with his cousin, bassist Mark Pattersonand friends. After putting out a cover of the Supremes ' "You Keep Me Hanging' On" on Tank, they were signed to Stax, for which they recorded three singles and an album between and The Stax sessions all of the singles also appeared on the album were produced by Johnnie Mae Matthews and Sir Mack Ricethe minor but noted Detroit soul singer.
Rice had recommended Black Nasty to Stax after starting work at the label as a songwriter. While their records were more promise than payoff, the album did have an interesting mix of funk with hard rock guitar, soul ballads on which Johnnie Mae Matthews ' teenage daughter Audrey took lead, and some socially conscious compositions that reflected black urban life of the early '70s. After the album made little impact, Stax dropped Black Nastywhich changed their name to Nazty and recorded a couple of singles for Excello.
And of shrink wrap recently unsealed. Reason being, my love of the Mercury scent goes back to a group of Classical LPs I bought circa in a Toledo discount store. How could I have forgotten these things? I'd never given any of this much thought.
Now that I have, I'm not sure what to do. Except admit that I'm a vinyl sniffer and keep on sniffing vinyl, secure in the fact that it's not illegal. That's what I'll do. Not the eponymous one by Mouse On Mars, of course, but the legendary album by the Orchestre Arthur Iriti probably the only record this Orchestre ever released, I have yet to find another one. For a child, this was just the perfect music: A very loud men's choir hollering sweet melodies it's a cool for a child to discover that it is possible to holler and be sweet at the same timebacked by rhythmic guitar strumming and some frantic percussionists drumming away on every piece of wood within reach.
There must have been many wooden things within reach when they recorded that album. And I still remember the text on the back cover. It's one of those completely useless things I tend to remember, while I always keep forgetting stuff I'm supposed to know. Ask me Album) birth date of Jesus Christ, and I am lost.
But I'll always remember silly little things like the funny typos on the menu list in an Italian restaurant I've been to years ago. Or, for that matter, what was printed on some obscure 70's album with Tahitian folklore. And when a mail by Mr Dante Fontana popped into my inbox asking me and a couple of other bloggers what kind of associations and memories I might have when sniffing the smell of my favourite piece of vinyl, I instantly thought Still Remember - The Black Nasty - The Black Nasty (CD Iriti's album.
It must have been one of the very first stereo records ever, at least the blurb on the cover went to great length in explaining what a brilliant invention stereo was and that people should buy this record for the sheer innovation of it alone. I don't remember the text verbatim, but I'd swear by the necklace of any Polynesian beauty Album) the final argument went something like: "Now that stereo Still Remember - The Black Nasty - The Black Nasty (CD around, all that's left to invent is a method of capturing the fragrance of the flowers in the dancer's hair onto vinyl.
For example, I had very cunning ideas of which kind of records I'd put on whenever my sister entered the room. Unfortunately, as promising as the prospect on the Iriti album sounded, no one really came along to release any of these records, at least not during my childhood, when I would have needed them most. I picked up some scratch-n-sniff records by punk bands later, but the olfactory effects of these were very unimpressive, to say the least, and tended to fade away quicker than you can say "stale and putrefied stench of a beer-soaked leather jacket worn the night before in a club where everyone smoked cheap Eastern-bloc cigarettes".
So that's maybe why I never really bothered about what vinyl actually smells like and I'm a bit wary of trying to sniff it out today. Because, you know, since those childhood days I have my own ideas and fantasies about what the aroma of an album should be like.
And they are mostly set off by the music or the cover design, and I'd rather not lose these kinds of fantasies. Take the first Gallon Drunk album: I always want it to have the fragrance Still Remember - The Black Nasty - The Black Nasty (CD the cherry blossoms decorating the backdrop, and I'd probably be depressed if I'd find out that the actual smell is much closer to that of the girl's nylon costume after a particular long and arduous work-out session.
Although, come to think of it, that might be a very interesting aroma as well Some things are best left to the imagination. I am guessing it's from the sixties. It's mostly country and the kids sing too and Mom reads a letter to her mom. There is one swinging song, Black Eyed Susan, sung by son Danny that's an all time favorite of mine and if I knew how to rip from albums to PC or had the equipment I would - and post it but alas.
The rest of the songs are so-so but the fun, home-made flavour still makes it somehow one hundred and eighty procent fabulous. OK enough already because this is about smell right? Well nothing happened! I pressed my nose so deep in the grooves I could almost hear a melody but my mind blank just stayed that way: blank. Retrieved 14 May Netaktion, Inc.
