July’s Record Club: USA 1969

GRC1969

We’re back at Glossop Labour Club on Thursday 11th July for USA 1969, when we’ll be going back exactly 50 year to explore from and inspired by America.

With the focus of our 1967 and 1968 sessions being primarily on UK music, this time we turn our attention to the USA, taking in tracks from the incendiary debuts by The Stooges and MC5 among others. From Detroit to Woodstock to Altamont, change was definitely in the air. We’ll also feature a few tracks by British artists under the influence of American soul, country and blues, who went so far as to record over there, resulting in some of their best work.

And it’s a Brit abroad that gives us our featured album  – Dusty Springfield’s ‘Dusty In Memphis’, recorded in Memphis and New York after signing to Atlantic Records in 1968. Surprisingly, the album saw no chart action in the UK, and only just scraped into the Billboard 100 in the USA. But, as with so many albums that flopped at the time, it’s reputation grew, and is now regarded as a classic, and Dusty’s definitive album.

STACK-A-RECORDS – the new monthly Glossop Record Club radio show

Just a quick post to let you know that ‘Stack-A-Records‘ – our new monthly radio show – starts tonight at 8pm on Radio Free Matlock.

We’ll be on the airwaves on the third Tuesday of every month with two hours of top tunes, mixing tracks from records played at record club over the years alongside new releases, reissues, box sets and old favourites. There’ll also be themed specials plus occasional co-hosts and special guests from time-to-time. A bit like record club!

Appropriately, our first show is a debut albums special, with tracks drawn from a list of around 160 suggestions that came in via our Twitter and Facebook followers. So if you told us your fave debut albums, be sure to tune in to see what made it to the playlist! We’ll be tweeting pictures of the records played throughout the show if you want to join us there too.

Listen live via the player on the Radio Free Matlock website and also check out their other shows during the week. There’s always something hip, happening and interesting to listen to (this week’s schedule is below). The show will also be up on Mixcloud the following day to listen to at your leisure.

And here’s the song that gave our show it’s name and theme. Hope you can join us!
