Anyone who ever clocked Alan Merrill's vocals with glam rock geniuses The Arrows back in the mid-1970s, and thought they detected a hint of American R&B lounging around the edges, probably wrote it off as a trick of the light. Certainly, they could never have expected Merrill to follow through (eventually) with this, a 23-song tribute album to Arthur Alexander and Otis Blackwell, recorded with ex-Yankees frontman Jon Tiven, and dropping so neatly into the very heart of the songs that one wonders precisely what else Merrill has tucked away in his quiver. First and foremost, Double Shot Rocks' closest living relative is Denny Laine's Wings-powered tribute to Buddy Holly, Holly Days. There's the same sense of simply rolling through the songs for fun, of relaxing into the words and rhythms, and of caring less for slickness and studio trickery than for the sheer joy of singing and playing such great songs.

A fine singer with a warm, expressive voice, Helen Merrill's infrequent recordings tend to be quite special with plenty of surprises and chance-taking. She started singing in public in 1944 and was with the Reggie Childs Orchestra during 1946-1947. Merrill, who was married for a period to clarinetist Aaron Sachs, had opportunities to sit in with some of the top modernists of the time, including Charlie Parker, Miles Davis, and Bud Powell.

Jeff Chandler stars as American brigadier-general Merrill, commanding a regiment in Burma during World War II. Surrounded on all sides by the Japanese, Merrill's Marauders nonetheless accomplish their objective-only to be ordered into another mission with barely a chance to breathe. Again and again this happens, and again and again the Marauders remain fiercely loyal to the dauntless Merrill. This "war doesn't take vacations" theme is a common one running through the combat films of director Samuel Fuller; only the censorship strictures of 1962 prohibit Fuller from fully illustrating the sheer Hell that was the Pacific War. Adapted by Fuller and producer Milton Sperling from a novel by Charlton Ogburn Jr., Merrill's Marauders represented Jeff Chandler's last film work.

Following the breakout success of the Jackson 5 in 1970, it was practically inevitable that a pre-existing quintet of brothers, who had already enjoyed almost a decade in the national spotlight, would follow them to teen idol superstardom. With dynamic youngest brother Donny as a focal point (much like Michael was for the Jacksons), the Osmonds did exactly that, enjoying a run of massive popularity during 1971-1972.

The records defy categorization. Rock and Roll die hards proclaim Moore "The Father of Rockabilly piano" with legends such as The Killer himself, Jerry Lee Lewis, naming Moore as an early idol. Fans of country music admire Moore's crisp, clear vocal delivery, rivaling those 50s superstars from Nashville like Webb Pierce and Faron Young (although Moore insists that his band was not country). They compare the rhythm of his small band to those of Western swing king Bob Wills, who in the early 50s recorded some of 'his' finest work for MGM. But despite these accolades from his peers and fans all overthe world, Merrill Everett Moore remains an unknown; unacknowledged for his contributions to the West Coast music scene and ignored by the Nashville establishment.

Perché l’Italia è precipitata nella crisi peggiore degli ultimi trent’anni? La colpa è della Germania, dell’austerity imposta dall’Europa, della moneta unica? O della mediocrità della classe dirigente? Esiste una via d’uscita, una ricetta per rifare il Paese? Per rispondere a queste domande, Alan Friedman, forse il giornalista straniero che conosce meglio la realtà italiana, parte da quegli anni Ottanta in cui l’Italia era la “quinta potenza economica del mondo” e pareva avviata verso una vera modernizzazione per arrivare fino alle drammatiche vicende degli ultimi anni. …
