Only 2 copies of Jim Armstrong’s 1976 LP “Feels Like Spiders” on the tax scam label TIGER LILY are known to be in circulation, and 8 minutes of excerpts from the album are on YOU TUBE, the only available material (presently—-I hope that those reading this in the future will be able to buy an authorized reissue on some boutique label) from this interesting work. Enjoy.

=====================================

One of my most-played LP’s of the mid-80’s, this Swedish LP (issued in 1983 on Skyline Records, a label that also had superb Johnny Carroll and Narvel Felts albums) compiled a number of rare Johnny Burnette sides (including songwriting demos) into one all-killer, no-filler collection, spanning 1956-60 (Johnny passed away in a boating accident in 1964) and showing Burnette’s unique talent as a songwriter and singer as well as the various eclectic styles in which he could work. I’d assume all or most of this eventually came out on the Bear Family box (which I’ve never been able to afford), but for now, settle back and enjoy a well-programmed selection of rarities from the master, JOHNNY BURNETTE.

Don Preston, ‘Bluse’ (1968 LP)

Filed under: Uncategorized — kendrasteinereditions @ 12:01 am

DON PRESTON , ‘BLUSE’ (A&M Records 4155, released 1968)

Baby It’s You 2:00
Standing In My Tears 3:22
You Don’t Know What You Got 2:05
Ninety-Nine & A Half 3:18
Morning Rain 2:55
Lookin’ For My Baby 2:46
Something You’ve Got 4:07
Further Up The Road 2:41
It’s Only A Tear 3:57

Where has this fine late 60’s blues album been all my life? I know Mr. Preston (no relation to the Don Preston who worked with Frank Zappa) from his work with Leon Russell and Joe Cocker, and I’ve owned his superb STILLROCK album on Enterprise since the mid-70’s. Also, I remember his 1974 LP for Shelter getting FM airplay in Denver and Boulder back in the day (Preston is originally a fellow Colorado boy!), but I don’t remember seeing this in my decades of used-record hunting (or maybe I’d spent my day’s money before coming across this in the stacks?). I just stumbled across it on You Tube today. However, the blues is timeless, and so many great blues albums were made in the 1960’s that it’s inevitable some would not get the attention they deserved.

Preston is a soulful vocalist and a powerful guitarist (just look at the quality of the people he’s played with over the decades….Google his name), and this album—-one of two he recorded for A&M—-is sure to please anyone who enjoys second-generation late 60’s blues. I’m listening to it a third time this afternoon!

This would be the perfect album to pair with, say, the PACIFIC GAS AND ELECTRIC album on Kent, though it’s rootsier and more satisfying, IMHO.

Thanks to Don Preston for such a fine and satisfying album—-I hope a lot of people have been enjoying it for the last 52 years, even though I’m a bit late in discovering it.

Settle back, pour a quality micro-brew, and pretend you’re in a small club—-this album sounds like the kind of live blues concert that leaves you feeling satisfied.

H.G. Lewis’ HOW TO MAKE A DOLL (1968)

Filed under: Uncategorized — kendrasteinereditions @ 1:02 am

HOW TO MAKE A DOLL is perhaps the most-reviled of Herschell Gordon Lewis’ original 60’s and early 70’s feature films, and those who have commented on it tend display an anger that I don’t see with the commentary on other off-the-wall second-tier Lewis films such as, say, THE MAGIC WORLD OF MOTHER GOOSE or MISS NYMPHET’S ZAP-IN (both of which I found very entertaining, by the way). A typical comment states that the film is “a nudie comedy with no nudity or comedy,” and on some level, that’s an accurate assessment. Those wanting nudity should look elsewhere as the ladies on parade here are bikini-clad. As for humor, those wanting what would be considered quality jokes or first-rate slapstick comedy should look elsewhere. However, what you DO get here is so bizarre, so existing in its own curious universe, one that resembles no other known universe, that it’s fascinating as an outsider artifact…but it’s NOT an outsider artifact because it played low-grade bills across the nation and people paid to see this at a theater or drive-in. And that is part of its appeal.

As someone who has watched many early-sound comedy shorts that are not at all funny in the traditional sense but where the players act as if they are being funny, I can appreciate how people who are not great comic talents delivering

46-page poetic diptych, perfect-bound paperback

——————

Composed 5/2020 through 9/2020

in Bexar County, Texas,

and St. Martin Parish, Louisiana


“What we love we are”–Robert Lowell, 1973 version of The Dolphin

“As we love we are” — Robert Lowell, 1972 version of The Dolphin

COMPLEMENTARY ANGLES is a forty-page open-field poem in two twenty-page halves, a diptych inspired by the two-panel works of Warhol and Bacon, by San Antonio poet BILL SHUTE, composed in Texas and Louisiana in May through September 2020 under lockdown from COVID-19.

It grows out of the work I’ve been doing since the 2018 RIVERSIDE FUGUE (published in 2019), where I (under the influence of Texas composer Mari Rubio’s KSE album ‘Staring At A Statue of Paint’) brought a variation of the musical fugue structure to the long-form open-field poem. That concept was extended in 2019-2020’s TOMORROW WON’T BRING THE RAIN (published in May 2020), finished during the early days of the Covid lockdown.

Simultaneously, I was studying the parallel texts of Robert Lowell’s THE DOLPHIN (1972 manuscript version and 1973 publication edition), as well as the multiple versions of Wordsworth’s THE PRELUDE, where for the last 75 years, the 1805 and 1850 editions have been published in a side-by-side format, allowing the reader to directly compare line-by-line, stanza-by-stanza, the two distinct works. Also, William Wordsworth was a habitual re-writer, a man who created multiple versions of the same works, and one can study this technique at length in the dozen-plus variorum editions of WW’s revisions in the Cornell Wordsworth series, as I’ve been doing for the last year or two). With those influences mixed into my lifelong fascination with the incremental repetition of Gertrude Stein, and with my contemplation of the Warhol and Bacon diptych paintings mentioned above (and of European altarpieces from the medieval and renaissance eras), COMPLEMENTARY ANGLES was born.

COMPLEMENTARY ANGLES presents a poetic diptych, two halves which mirror each other, two separate angles of vision focused on the same target, the two end panels on an altarpiece.

The shards assembled for the mosaic come from the physical artifacts, the habits/tendencies, the behavior, the flotsam and jetsam, and the throwaway sayings of 2020 pandemic-era Texas and Louisiana. COMPLEMENTARY ANGLES was composed both here in San Antonio and on the banks of the Atchafalaya River in South Central Louisiana.

As always, I hope you find it interesting and worthwhile.

Since 2016 I have been working exclusively with the long-form poem, in the 30-60 page range. My friends who are composers and visual artists have been a great influence on this work. Thank you to those who have been reading my various writings since the 1980’s….and especially those who have been reading (and purchasing) my poetry books since TWELVE GATES TO THE CITY in 2005. Working on a 40-page poem for a significant chunk of a year is the poet’s version of making a feature film or composing and then conducting a symphony. At my age, you don’t have time to waste….work needs to be done….

Many thanks for hanging in there with me, as we’ve taken this long strange trip together, apart.

**I’m presently at work on another book-length poetic diptych, tentatively titled TWO SELF-PORTRAITS (AFTER MURILLO), which I hope to complete in the Summer of 2021.

Stay tuned….
