Sometimes you stare and the look in your bun eyes…

It says that you care and it gives me butterflies…

Oh yeah... What a pure delight…

Whoa yeah... I'm in love all right…

Oh yeah...What a pure delight…

Whoa yeah…I’m in love alright…

Whoa yeah… What a perfect white…

And I want you in my life, oh bunny…

 

Whoa yeah…What a perfect sight…

Whoa yeah… I'm in love alright…

Whoa yeah… that cute overbite…

(REST IN PEACE, BILL WITHERS, July 4, 1938 - March 30, 2020)

  

Near mint condition LP found at a recent estate sale.

The Partridge Family Sound Magazine, the third long-player from the pre-fab and made-for-TV combo, was also the last to make it into the Top Ten. Taking a page right out of the overwhelming phenomenon that was Monkee mania, The Partridge Family ran on ABC-TV from September 25, 1970, through August 31, 1974.

 

Although the tunes were more or less a byproduct of the show's success, producer Wes Farrell actually incorporated the same methodology that Bert Schneider and Bob Rafelson had used on The Monkees.

 

This involved primary cast members Shirley Jones and David Cassidy on lead vocals for all Partridge Family projects in addition to their chores as actors. The campaign yielded not only consistently favorable ratings on TV, but no less than nine Top 40 LPs and 11 Top 40 singles.

 

Providing instrumental support for Cassidy and Jones were some of the most prolific pop and rock studio musicians of the era -- many of whom had likewise worked on Monkees platters. Heavyweights such as Hal Blaine (drums), Larry Carlton (guitar), Joe Osborne (bass), and Larry Knechtel (keyboards) gave the vocalists a non-confrontational and genteel sound to match their squeaky-clean persona.

 

Also joining the proceedings were the cavity-invoking backing harmonies of the Love Generation, who had participated to some degree on every Partridge Family release. The single "I Woke Up in Love This Morning" reached the Top 20 survey, making it the highest-profile side on the album.

 

Other notable fan favorites included are "Echo Valley 2-6809," "Summer Days," and "Love Is All That I Ever Needed," the Cassidy co-composition concluding this effort.

In 1962, growing media conglomerate the Music Corporation of America (MCA) acquired popular Decca Records and its subsidiary labels Coral and Brunswick. Since MCA's creation in 1924 as a talent booking agent, the company by 1960 had expanded into motion pictures and television production, so it's entry into the recorded music industry was a given.

With a few exceptions, Decca's artist roster tended to appeal to a slightly older audience which was fine in 1962. However, by 1966 the music landscape had changed drastically and MCA wanted to tap into a hipper, younger music market. Rather than purchase more new labels, they started their own, Universal City Records, better known by its abbreviation, Uni.

The label's initial roster consisted mostly of psychedelic pop groups with names like The Hippy Dippys and The Lollipop Shop. One such group, The Strawberry Alarm Clock gave Uni its first big hit, 'Incense and Peppermints' which went to #1 in November of 1967.

Uni would soon expand its roster to include jazz (Hugh Masekela, Larry Carlton), comedy (David Steinberg, Bill Cosby), R&B (Betty Everett, Garland Green), and reggae (Desmond Dekker). Several artists on Uni would go on to greater success elsewhere: The Osmond Brothers, David Essex, Paul Carrack, Cliff Richard (at least in the U.S.), and actress Marcia Strassman (best known for her roles in "Welcome Back, Kotter" and "Honey, I Shrunk The Kids").

Three artists who had early success on Uni would eventually become among the most successful acts of the '70s and '80s: Neil Diamond (who moved to Uni from Bang Records), Elton John, and Olivia Newton-John.

In 1972, MCA consolidated all of its labels into the new MCA Records and Uni was no more. Until 1988 that is, when the label was revived with artists such as Eric B & Rakim, Transvision Vamp, and Wet Wet Wet. The new Uni Records produced few hits and after two years was shuttered again.

Beau Shelby was born Richard Reynell Shelby at Indianola , Mississippi in 1962 and began to teach himself drums at age 8 and guitar at age 11.

Formed his first band , JABON ,in 1977 and continued to learn from live professional concert performances and televised professional performances such as Don Kirshner ’s Rock Concert , Midnight Special and other shows that debuted and featured some of music's most acclaimed Icons and Diva's from the beginnings of their now well known careers.

"Who knew that the Studio band playing behind The Hughes Corp. on "Rock the Boat" (1974) was The one and only Crusaders featuring “The” Larry Carlton of Steely Dan, The Crusaders , Four Play and too many others to mention as well as his own reknown career? “... he asks in a playful yet knowledgeable demeanor.

Beau laughs as he recalls trying to emulate L. C. 's groove at that early stage , although by this time , he was already gaining a reputation for his uncanny ability to learn note for note renditions of just about anything that presented a challenge.

 

Beau Shelby (St. Louis' most authentic Modern Blues/R&B/Funk Artist) credits that authenticity to having been born in the Mississippi Delta and raised by family elders who had never lived anywhere else but The Delta.

He began playing guitar in 1973 at age 11 and excelled in virtually every category of playing by the time he reached 17.

His "particularly blistering" style of lead and a "hela-funky" to "most-mellow" rhythm style has earned him a reputation that others have tried imitate to no avail.

Timeline and Events

·1973 – Began playing Guitar at age 11.

Beau was a highly motivated , mostly self-taught student and spent these early years mastering the basics as well as manual effects and tension devices.

·After joining several new and fledgling groups he marshaled that valuable experience and set out to establish his own band - Jabon - in September , 1977.

Just two short months later Jabon entered and won first place in St. Louis’ most prestigious talent contest - The Battle of the Bands - on Nov. 17 , 1977.

The winning band was also offered an opening act date at Kiel Opera House.

·1978 – Jabon picks up radio producer/jock Gary Starr of KATZ-AM

as a sponsor.

This led to Beau meeting and greeting some of the biggest R & B acts of that time via Backstage Guest Pass and becoming virtual pals

with the likes of : The Bar-Kays , Rufus & Chaka Khan , The Commodores, The Brothers Johnson , and many others.

·1979 – Landed a gig with manager T. J. Morris’ “Rocking Uniques”

where he was designated Bandleader and became friends with Greg Osby, noted Jazz Saxophonist (recently touring with Herbie Hancock and others) Kevin Batchelor , Trumpeter with internationally acclaimed Reggae group The SkaTa Lites ; and Theo

Peoples , Lead Vocalist of The Four Tops and (formerly ) The Temptations

Kevin, Theo & Beau are later recruited by Otha & Co. ( St. Louis’ hottest R & B dance band ) and tour extensively playing the military circuit.

·1980 – 1990 Beau turns to realizing his dream of being an accomplished Studio Musician & Producer by working extensively as a Freelance musician in order to strengthen his versatility.

 

Playing with Chess records legend Bobby McClure landed him onstage as the opening act of the 2nd annual Budweiser Superfest

held at The St. Louis International Raceway.

Other acts on the date included George Clinton & Parliament/ Funkadelic , The Dramatics , Al Green , Smokey Robinson , Johnny Taylor , The Sugar Hill Gang , SOS Band and many others.

He caught the attention of promoter Jim Gates and the legendary Oliver Sain , who took him under his wing as an apprentice.

Working with Mr. Sain at his Archway Recording Studio was a dream come true for Beau and he wasted no time showing his appreciation by helping Mr. Sain in his efforts to modernize Archway without compromising its' signature “vintage “ sound.

To date Archway has released several of R&B's greatest hits including "Don't Mess Up A Good Thing" (Fontella Bass & Bobby McClure) a number of hits by The Delfonics featuring Phil Perry ; ' You Make Me Feel like Dancing' ,' Bus Stop' and many others.

·In 1983 Beau played Lead & Bass Guitar as well as keyboards on the hit Album “Going Fishing” recorded at Archway and released by David Dee.

He also had a chance to try his hand at writing and recording his own material for the first time.

Freelancing led to him playing with virtually every working act in town and furthered his reputation throughout the St. Louis area.

In 1990 Beau decided to embark on a Solo/ specialty Singles act that was very successful and remains a big part of his popularity

with private and public venue Clients.

.

 

·His current Band , Beau Shelby & Flyy , is his pride and joy.

Beau Shelby & Flyy is routinely requested by The St. Louis Blues Society to perform at St. Louis' Premiere Blues Club, B.B.'s Jazz Blues & Soups & Their Annual Big Muddy Blues Festival featuring the likes of Taj Mahal , Mavis Staples , John Lee Hooker , Buddy Guy , John Mayall , The Fabulous Thunderbirds and many others.

Beau Shelby & Flyy are definitely NOT your average 'cover' band ,but rather , a true Professional Act whether doing covers or

originals.

memorable experience...

This Sony cassette tape was made for me by my friend Neil Bowman, way back in 1984. It came out of a closet duffle bag that I had held on to. Totally nostalgic and totally good music.

Cuz we ended a lovers

 

Stay blessed mes ami(e)s

g

Spent the day remembering what God gave me last year: freedom from abuse.

 

Slave Song

 

she’s still there when the day lights

still there when the night fights…

she’s still there for the daylight

still there for the night fights…

  

shadows own the night about her

whisper lies that her mind’s known

dare to take heart apart

and steal God’s power, all her own

 

but

 

she’s still there when the day lights….

still there when the night fights

she’s still there for the daylight

still there for the night fights…

 

slave to his obscene desire

push her down, where her head goes

crush her will, with love he says

and a slave song’s all that she knows

 

but

 

she’s still there when the day lights

still there when the night fights…

she’s still there for the daylight

still there for the night fights…

 

sit in blue, head bent with teardrops

cross her heart, keep it safe, love

only steps from wolves, tonight

but even slaves get noticed from above

 

and

 

you’re still there when the day lights

still there when the night fights…

you’re still there for the daylight

still there for the night fights

NOVEMBER 1986: Take a good look: that's Billy without sunglasses. Ironic considering how bright things were for ZZ Top in 1986. The tour for the previous year's Afterburner album was one of their most extensive, propelled by that record's multiple hit singles. GW caught Gibbons during that tour and talked about the recording of Afterburner, which Gibbons remarked was inspired somewhat by last month's coverman: Eddie Van Halen.

Larry Carlton - Alone / But Never Alone - 1986 MCA Record

  

Beau Shelby was born Richard Reynell Shelby at Indianola , Mississippi in 1962 and began to teach himself drums at age 8 and guitar at age 11.

Formed his first band , JABON ,in 1977 and continued to learn from live professional concert performances and televised professional performances such as Don Kirshner ’s Rock Concert , Midnight Special and other shows that debuted and featured some of music's most acclaimed Icons and Diva's from the beginnings of their now well known careers.

"Who knew that the Studio band playing behind The Hughes Corp. on "Rock the Boat" (1974) was The one and only Crusaders featuring “The” Larry Carlton of Steely Dan, The Crusaders , Four Play and too many others to mention as well as his own reknown career? “... he asks in a playful yet knowledgeable demeanor.

Beau laughs as he recalls trying to emulate L. C. 's groove at that early stage , although by this time , he was already gaining a reputation for his uncanny ability to learn note for note renditions of just about anything that presented a challenge.

 

Beau Shelby (St. Louis' most authentic Modern Blues/R&B/Funk Artist) credits that authenticity to having been born in the Mississippi Delta and raised by family elders who had never lived anywhere else but The Delta.

He began playing guitar in 1973 at age 11 and excelled in virtually every category of playing by the time he reached 17.

His "particularly blistering" style of lead and a "hela-funky" to "most-mellow" rhythm style has earned him a reputation that others have tried imitate to no avail.

Influences: Tony Maiden & Bobby Watson(Rufus & Chaka Khan) , Albert King, B.B. King, Curtis Mayfield,Ray Parker Jr.,Tito Jackson, Frank Zappa , Crusaders , Larry Carlton , Johnny Guitar Watson , George Benson, Earl Klugh , Earth Wind & Fire, Donny Hathaway, Yes , Jeff "Skunk" Baxter, Peter Frampton, The Bee Gees,Bobby Caldwell , Johnny Winter ,George Duke , Bootsy Collins ,Eric Foreman(Homeboy) , Anthony Jackson , Lynyrd Skynyrd, "Wild Bill" Lawton(Homeboy), Leon Russel,Johnnie Johnson,L.J.Reynolds,Ernie Isley, Average White Band, Eric Clapton, Elton John, John Denver, Temptations,Spinners,The Originals,Gap Band,Sly Stone, Larry Graham,Jimi Hendrix, Mountain,Robben Ford,Wynton Kelly,Rick Derringer,Oliver Sain,Maurice White,Return to Forever,The Eagles,Roy Buchanan,Ray Charles,Clayton Love,Laval Bell,Johnnie Taylor,Charlie Parker,Dire Straits,Cannonball Adderly,Henry Townsend,Lester Young , Paul Chambers, Miles Davis , Mike Stern , Paul Schaeffer , Hiram Bullock, Arthur Adams , Tower Of Power , Black Oak Arkansas , Doctor John,Jim Messina,Bread,Muddy Waters , Elmore James , Joe Zawinul , Billy Preston , Steely Dan , Mahogany Rush ,Glenn Campbell , Barry Manilow , The Brothers Johnson ,The Commodores , The Barkays , Rufus Thomas , Joe Tex, Quincy Jones ,John Coltrane ,"Red" Garland , Jimmy Smith , Kansas

     

Timeline and Events

·1973 – Began playing Guitar at age 11.

Beau was a highly motivated , mostly self-taught student and spent these early years mastering the basics as well as manual effects and tension devices.

·After joining several new and fledgling groups he marshaled that valuable experience and set out to establish his own band - Jabon - in September , 1977.

Just two short months later Jabon entered and won first place in St. Louis’ most prestigious talent contest - The Battle of the Bands - on Nov. 17 , 1977.

The winning band was also offered an opening act date at Kiel Opera House.

·1978 – Jabon picks up radio producer/jock Gary Starr of KATZ-AM

as a sponsor.

This led to Beau meeting and greeting some of the biggest R & B acts of that time via Backstage Guest Pass and becoming virtual pals

with the likes of : The Bar-Kays , Rufus & Chaka Khan , The Commodores, The Brothers Johnson , and many others.

·1979 – Landed a gig with manager T. J. Morris’ “Rocking Uniques”

where he was designated Bandleader and became friends with Greg Osby, noted Jazz Saxophonist (recently touring with Herbie Hancock and others) Kevin Batchelor , Trumpeter with internationally acclaimed Reggae group The SkaTa Lites ; and Theo

Peoples , Lead Vocalist of The Four Tops and (formerly ) The Temptations

Kevin, Theo & Beau are later recruited by Otha & Co. ( St. Louis’ hottest R & B dance band ) and tour extensively playing the military circuit.

·1980 – 1990 Beau turns to realizing his dream of being an accomplished Studio Musician & Producer by working extensively as a Freelance musician in order to strengthen his versatility.

 

Playing with Chess records legend Bobby McClure landed him onstage as the opening act of the 2nd annual Budweiser Superfest

held at The St. Louis International Raceway.

Other acts on the date included George Clinton & Parliament/ Funkadelic , The Dramatics , Al Green , Smokey Robinson , Johnny Taylor , The Sugar Hill Gang , SOS Band and many others.

He caught the attention of promoter Jim Gates and the legendary Oliver Sain , who took him under his wing as an apprentice.

Working with Mr. Sain at his Archway Recording Studio was a dream come true for Beau and he wasted no time showing his appreciation by helping Mr. Sain in his efforts to modernize Archway without compromising its' signature “vintage “ sound.

To date Archway has released several of R&B's greatest hits including "Don't Mess Up A Good Thing" (Fontella Bass & Bobby McClure) a number of hits by The Delfonics featuring Phil Perry ; ' You Make Me Feel like Dancing' ,' Bus Stop' and many others.

·In 1983 Beau played Lead & Bass Guitar as well as keyboards on the hit Album “Going Fishing” recorded at Archway and released by David Dee.

He also had a chance to try his hand at writing and recording his own material for the first time.

Freelancing led to him playing with virtually every working act in town and furthered his reputation throughout the St. Louis area.

In 1990 Beau decided to embark on a Solo/ specialty Singles act that was very successful and remains a big part of his popularity

with private and public venue Clients.

.

 

·His current Band , Beau Shelby & Flyy , is his pride and joy.

Beau Shelby & Flyy is routinely requested by The St. Louis Blues Society to perform at St. Louis' Premiere Blues Club, B.B.'s Jazz Blues & Soups & Their Annual Big Muddy Blues Festival featuring the likes of Taj Mahal , Mavis Staples , John Lee Hooker , Buddy Guy , John Mayall , The Fabulous Thunderbirds and many others.

Formed in 2000 , Flyy is a cutting edge all-around Blues//R&B/Dance/ Jazz/ Lite & Classic Rock/Pop/ Easy Listening band that Jams!

At home in virtually any setting , they constantly turn heads and delight audiences throughout their performance with versatility and a

genuine flair for true entertainment.

Other Festivals include : Opening act for The Great George Benson @The Winter Park Jazz Fest in Colorado which also featured Acoustic Alchemy on the same bill, The AACW Blues & Jazz Festival co- Chaired by noted comedian Dave Chappelle in Yellow Springs , Ohio with Al Caldwel & The Traveling Black Hillbillies.

 

Beau Shelby & Flyy are definitely NOT your average 'cover' band ,but rather , a true Professional Act whether doing covers or

originals.

The Arranging and Live Production that goes into a Flyy performance is always truly original and designed to leave audiences with a

memorable experience...

That's what sets Flyy apart and , indeed, puts them in a class all their own.

To date, Beau Shelby & Flyy has one previously released CD 'Stand Up' (2000) and an upcoming release 'Move On Time' (2007) to its'

credit.

Both soon to be available on iTunes and CDBaby.com as well during venue performances @ $15.00 ea.

I've decided to sell my lovely Larry Carlton guitar on ebay, so I took some photos today. If it sells I will get the Nikon Nikkor AF 200mm f/4D ED-IF AF Micro, which will be about $1400 with tax and shipping. Or I will wait for my tax refund next March.

 

Guitar is extra special because it is #79 of only 100 made, signed and numbered by Larry himself; handmade by Valley Arts Guitars circa 1990. "Mint condition" doesn't do it justice. Once I figure out the shipping I will post it on ebay.

Thomas Jeffrey Porcaro (1 de abril de 1954 Hartford, Connecticut, Estados Unidos - 5 de agosto de 1992), fue un destacado baterista de sesión y también el primer baterista del grupo Toto, banda que integró hasta su muerte.

 

Fue criado en una familia muy musical: su padre, Joe Porcaro, ya era un reconocido músico de sesión, y sus hermanos Steve Porcaro y Mike Porcaro posteriormente, seguirían la misma suerte que su padre, consagrándose ambos en los teclados y en el bajo respectivamente. Empezó con la batería a los 7 años de edad, tomando lecciones con su padre, y más tarde con Bob Zimmitti y Rich Lapore. Ya desde los comienzos de su carrera profesional, Jeff se destacó como uno de los mejores bateristas dentro de la industria musical, gracias a versatilidad y su más que sutil sentido del ritmo.

 

A los 17 años consiguió su primer trabajo serio como profesional, tocando en giras con Sonny and Cher's. Luego de esa experiencia hizo varias grabaciones para Steely Dan, antes de formar Toto con sus amigos.

 

Su historia con Toto empezó en los años 70, y también formaban parte de ésta sus hermanos Steve Porcaro, Mike Porcaro y sus amigos Steve Lukather, David Hungate y David Paich. En su álbum debut, homónimo, incluía el single Hold the line, que fue todo un éxito. Este primer trabajo de la banda alcanzó el disco de multiplatino. A lo largo de la década de los 70 editaron dos trabajos más, pero fue con Toto IV (1982), cuando alcanzaron mayor popularidad gracias a canciones como Rosanna o África. El disco le valió a la banda un Grammy al Mejor Álbum del Año.

 

Además de su trabajo con Toto, también realizó grabaciones y actuaciones en vivo con artistas como Bee Gees, Paul McCartney, Led Zeppelin ,Willy DeVille, Donald Fagen, Michael Jackson, Madonna, Bonnie Raitt, Dire Straits, Mark Knopfler, Pink Floyd, David Gilmour, Boz Scaggs, Roger Waters, Paul Anka, Eric Clapton, Joe Walsh, Lionel Richie, Earth, Wind & Fire, Burton Cummings y Bruce Springsteen, Larry Carlton, y Van Halen entre otros.
