    Biography

    Mance Lipscomb was an American blues singer, guitarist, and songster. He was born Beau De Glen Lipscomb near Navasota, Texas in 1895. His nickname is short for emancipation. Mance’s father had been enslaved in Alabama and his mother was half African American. For most of his life, he supported himself as a tenant farmer in Texas. He started playing guitar at a young age and became an accomplished player. Mance was discovered and recorded by Mack McCormick and Chris Strachwitz of Arhoolie Records in 1960 during a revival of interest in country blues. He recorded many albums of blues, ragtime, Tin Pan Alley and folk; most of them being released by Arhoolie Records. Singing and accompanying himself on acoustic guitar, Lipscomb had a dead-thumb finger picking technique and expressive voice. In 1961 he recorded the album, “Trouble In Mind,” released by Reprise Records. In May 1963, he appeared at the first Monterey Folk Festival (which later became the Monterey Pop Festival) alongside other folk artists such as Bob Dylan and Peter Paul and Mary. Unlike many of his contemporaries, Lipscomb did not record in the early blues era. Until 1960, most of his musical activity took place within what he called his “precinct,” the area around Navasota. Following his discovery, Lipscomb became an important figure in the American Folk Music Revival of the 1960s. He was a regular performer at folk festivals and folk-blues clubs around the United States. He died in Navasota in 1976, two years after suffering a stroke. He appears in two films – the 1971 documentary, “A Well Spent Life,” and in the 1970 film, “The Blues Accordin’ To Lightnin’ Hopkins.”

    Biography

    Flotsam and Jetsam is an American thrash metal band that was formed in Phoenix in 1981. Before settling on its current name in 1984, the band existed under three different names: Paradox, Dredlox and Dogz. Their current lineup includes vocalist Eric “A.K.” Knutson, guitarists Michael Gilbert and Steve Conley, bassist Bill Bodily, and drummer Ken Mary. The band went through several lineup changes over the years, leaving Knutson as the only constant member. They are also notable for featuring bassist Jason Newsted, who left the band shortly after the release of their debut to join Metallica as Cliff Burton’s successor. Flotsam and Jetsam recorded their debut album Doomsday For The Deceiver in Los Angeles with producer Brian Slagel. The album was released on July 4 1986, and was the first in Kerrang Magazine’s history to achieve the 6k rating. On Halloween night of 1986, Newsted played his last gig with the band. They inked a deal with Metallica’s then-label Elektra Records before opening for Megadeth in 1987 on the Peace Sells Tour in Europe and America. After touring with Megadeth, the band played shows in America with Slayer, Dark Angel, Celtic Frost, Sacred Reich and Excel. Their second studio album and only one on Roadrunner Records, No Place For Disgrace, was released in May 1988 and includes a cover of Elton John’s hit, “Saturday Night’s Alright For Fighting,” for which a music video was shot. The band toured heavily behind the album through out 1988 and 1989. They opened for King Diamond in America and supported Megadeth, Testament and Sanctuary in Europe on the So Far, So Good…So What! Tour. The band also toured or played shows with Testament, The Crumbsuckers, Fates Warning, Destruction, Metal Church, Death Angel, and Kreator. Flotsam and Jetsam have released fourteen studio albums in their career after signing with MCA in 1989. Despite not achieving similar levels of commercial success as some of their thrash metal contemporaries, the band emerged as part of the second wave of the genre in the mid-to-late 1980s, and has enjoyed moderate success in the United States, with two of their albums (1988’s No Place For Disgrace and 1990’s When The Storm Comes Down) entering the Billboard 200 chart, and their fourth album, Cuatro cracking the top 30 on the Heatseekers chart.

    Biography

    One of the most recognizable names in the annals of pop music history, The Monkees are an American rock and pop band originally active between 1966 and 1971, with reunion albums and tours in the decades that followed. The original line up was Micky Dolenz, Michael Nesmith, Peter Tork and Davy Jones. The group was conceived in 1965 by TV producers Bob Rafelson and Bert Schneider specifically for the sit-com series The Monkees, which aired from 1966 to 1968. The music was originally supervised by record producer Don Kirschner, backed by the songwriting duo of Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart. The four actor/musicians were initially allowed only limited roles in the recording studio for the first few months of their five-year career as “The Monkees.” This was due in part to the amount of time required to film the tv series. Mike Nesmith composed and produced songs from the beginning, Tork contributed guitar work on the Nesmith-produced sessions, while all four contributed vocals on various tracks. They eventually fought for the right to collectively supervise all music output under the band’s name, acting as actors, musicians, singers, songwriters and producers. Inspired by the Beatles’ film “A Hard Day’s Night” “The Monkees” TV show was picked up as a series by Screen Gems TV in 1965 and the musical side of the project accelerated. Columbia-Screen Gems and RCA Victor entered into a joint venture called Colgems Records primarily to distribute Monkees records. The Monkees self-titled debut and second albums were meant to be a soundtrack to the first season of the TV show, to cash in on the audience. Within a few months of their debut album, music supervisor Don Kirshner was dismissed and The Monkees took control as a real band over deceptive musician credits and how the band was incorrectly marketed to the public. Their first single, “Last Train To Clarksville” b/w “Take A Giant Step,” was released in August 1966, just weeks prior to the TV broadcast debut. In conjunction with the first broadcast of the TV show on September 12, 1966, NBC and Columbia had a major hit. The first long-playing album, The Monkees; was released a month later; it spent 13 weeks at #1 and stayed on the Billboard charts for 78 weeks. Twenty years later, during their reunion, it spent another 24 weeks on the Billboard charts. Their second studio album, “More Of The Monkees,” was recorded in late 1966 and released on Colgems label #102 on January 9, 1967. It displaced the band's debut album from the top of the Billboard 200 chart and remained at No.1 for 18 weeks—the longest of any Monkees album. Monkeemania had reached full swing by the time the album was released. The Monkees' second single, "I'm a Believer"—included on this album—held the number one position on the Billboard Hot 100 and they were about to embark on a highly successful concert tour. More of the Monkees also went to No.1 in the UK. In the U.S. it has been certified quintuple platinum by the RIAA with sales of more than five million copies. More of the Monkees is also notable for being the first pop/rock album to be the best-selling album of the year in the U.S. Following the TV show’s cancellation in 1968, the Monkees continued to record music until 1971, after which the group broke up. A revival of interest in the TV show came in 1986, which led to a series of reunion tours and new records. The group has reunited and toured several times since then with different line-ups (but always containing Micky Dolenz and another original member). Jones died in February 2012 and Tork died in February 2019. Dolenz and Nesmith remain active members of the group. The success of the show led to the actor-musicians becoming one of the most successful bands of the 1960s. The Monkees have sold more than 75 million records worldwide making them one of the biggest selling groups of all time with international hits, including “Last Train to Clarksville,” “Pleasant Valley Sunday,” “Daydream Believer,” and “I’m A Believer.” Newspapers and magazines have reported that the Monkees outsold the Beatles and the Rolling Stones combined in 1967, but Nesmith admitted in his autobiography “Infinite Tuesday,” that it was a lie that he told a reporter! If voted to win this month, ROG will reissue their iconic sophomore album as a deluxe 2LP set with bonus tracks (several of which are unreleased mixes) and have lacquers cut from the analog stereo tapes for the first time since 1966; creating THE DEFINITIVE version of this album since original release!
