(2009/Get Back) 12 tracks - Reproduction of the 1968 soundtrack to ´Girl On A Motorcycle´ featuring actors Marianne Faithfull and Alain Delon.
(2016/Jasmine) 27 Tracks - Original Epic recordings 1957-1959! Actor Sal Mineo blazed a trail to glory on the silver screen in the mid-1950s in films like ´Rebel Without A Cause´, ´Giant´ and ´Somebody Up There Likes Me´, to quickly become one of the most recognisable and beloved actors of his generation. Sal also had a pretty profitable sideline as a singer during the second half of the 50s - one that brought him a worldwide Top 20 hit with ´Start Movin´´ and almost half a dozen other medium sized US hits. Titled after his pan-global smash, ´Start Movin´´ is a comprehensive chronicle of Sal´s active career as a singer containing, as it does, almost every recording he made during the 1950s and early 60s - the A and B sides of 8 singles, the entire contents of his lone LP ´Sal Sings´ a soundtrack EP rarity and material not issued at the time. Sal recorded new songs by some of the best-known pop writers of the era, including Barry Mann, Luther Dixon, the team of Frank Slay and Bob Crewe, Gary Paxton and Cameo-Parkway´s Kal Mann and Bernie Lowe (using the aliases of Harold Land and Jon Sheldon) and ´Start Movin´´ composer Bobby Stevenson. He may have regarded his singing as a distant second to his acting but the material he cut for his fans was never less than first rate. He never really felt comfortable as a singer and was happy to call time on his vocal career as the 60s got underway, but Sal Mineo´s chart profile makes him one of the most consistently successful ´singing actors´ of any period. Jasmine is more than happy to restore his recordings to catalogue in a package that pays tribute to the many talents of Salvatore Mineo Jr.

Gebundene Ausgabe - Doubleday - 1989 -English James Dean´s short life — and tragic death — and his three-film Hollywood career have made a seemingly disproportionate impact on the collective worldwide consciousness of the late-twentieth century. In this sensitive and original reassessment of Dean´ s life and career, Barney Hoskyns succeeds in explaining just why the young actor has achieved the status of an icon and what it is that the image of Dean touches in so many people. Hoskyns makes Dean come alive as no other writer has been able to do, revitalizing the shallow cardboard figure portrayed by the media and break-ing away from the customary single-minded emph-asis on Dean´ s good looks and photographic charm. To complement the author´ s thesis, photographs chosen from the collection of the premier James Dean archivist David Loehr are featured throughout the book. Many of these have never previously been published, and, alongside Hoskyns´ illuminating text, they reveal Dean as never before — compelling, talented, winsome, individualistic, inimitable and, above all, human.
Gebundene Ausgabe - 383 Seiten -Parragon Inc - Englisch Introduction Elvis Presley burst onto the American music scene in 1956, although he had been well-known locally around Memphis for some time beforehand. He quickly became synonymous with the new rock ´n´ roll music and teenagers everywhere took him to their hearts. His sensual performing style whipped his female fans into a frenzy, which initially caused much criticism in the press — but the resulting publicity did his career no harm at all. After he was drafted and did his service in the US army, without complaint or favors, opinion about him in the press began to change, and on his return his new, mature style helped him to reach an even wider audience. Not content with being perhaps the world´s most popular singer, he also moved into acting and soon took Hollywood by storm. During his career he made 31 movies — all of which were a success at the box office — and in the middle of the 1960s he was the highest-paid actor in Hollywood. After he returned to the concert stage in the 1970s his shows in Las Vegas were legendary, and he was soon dubbed the `World´s Greatest Entertainer´. Elvis Presley: Unseen Archives charts the fascinating life of Elvis, right from his humble beginnings to his tragic death as a superstar and its aftermath. The exciting collection of photographs featured not only show him performing, but also include candid shots documenting his private life and a comprehensive selection of stills taken during the making of his movies. Many of the photographs are not clearly dated in the archives, but in this book they have been carefully placed in context with what was happening in his career at around the time they were taken. The pictures are accompanied by detailed and perceptive captions, which give a rounded portrait of the world´s most famous singer. Elvis Presley was a phenomenon and his legacy continues to captivate people even today — the King may be dead, but his memory lingers on.

Deutschsprachige Ausgabe: BCD 17228 3-CD Digipak with 140-page booklet, 80 tracks. Total playing time approx. 257 mns. The West Coast If the East Coast primarily nurtured the contemporary folk scene, Los Angeles and San Francisco were parallel hubs of the folk music revival. In late 1945 Pete Seeger established People´s Songs, Inc., to use folk and topical songs to further postwar progressive political and social issues. Within months composer/folksinger Earl Robinson opened the New York operation´s first branch office in Los Angeles, attracting labor organizer and journalist Vern Partlow, and film industry professionals like actor Will Geer and arranger Sonny Vale. Its members included Richard Dehr and Frank Miller, who performed folk songs as The Easy Riders. Los Angeles was also the original home of Charter Records, a label that served People´s Songs members with recordings by Seeger, Morry Goodson and Sonny Vale, and calypsonian Sir Lancelot. It also encouraged events up north in San Francisco, where Malvina Reynolds found kindred spirits among the People´s Songs activists. With Seeger´s encouragement she became a master composer of satiric, poignant and enduring songs. Although People´s Songs dissolved in 1949, it helped seed a vital West Coast folk community. Terry Gilkyson, a Pennsylvania native who moved to Los Angeles in 1947, struck gold with his folk-flavored The Cry Of The Wild Goose. Gilkyson´s understated Decca recording spawned multiple cover versions, including Frankie Laine´s chart-topping Mercury single in 1951. In a joint session with The Weavers, Gilkyson sang the lead on On Top Of Old Smoky, which rose to No. 2 on the Billboard pop chart. In 1955 he joined Dehr and Miller´s Easy Riders. Besides jointly collaborating on Memories Are Made Of This, the Easy Riders accompanied Dean Martin on his No. 1 hit single. If the early New York folk scene fostered an alluring Bohemian atmosphere, the West Coast singers created a sunnier approach. Many performers were tied to the entertainment industry, writing scores or acting in films and television. Performers like Rod McKuen, Mason Williams, Mike Settle, Travis Edmonson, Van Dyke Parks and John Stewart were gifted lyricists and skilled, melodic composers. When Bob Dylan shook up the East Coast folk music community in 1962, their careers and styles were already established.
