Welcome to Guitars & All That Jazz

Guitars & All That Jazz was a radio station that webcast via Live365 for 11 years, ending in June 2011. The playlist consisted of guitar instrumentals, jazz, big band, early rock 'n' roll, lounge music and classic easy listening.

I hope to share some of this music with you via this blog. Most of it will be taken from the original vinyl (LPs and 45s) , cassettes and the occasional commercially unavailable CD.

Here's hoping you'll find something to enjoy. Please note files are available only for a limited time.

I urge you to purchase the digital version of the albums featured, either on CD or via download, wherever possible.

Paul & Rick - After Hours

Here's a really obscure R&B instrumental from 1969 by a duo billed as Paul & Rick. Don't know a thing about these guys and I can't find any reference to them on the web or in books.

This appears to have had mainly a European release, although I know it did come out in the U.S. as I used to have a promo copy. Unfortunately, it has long since disappeared.

Paul & Rick sound like they could be from Detroit, but who knows. Anyone with any information is welcome to leave a comment.

The "A" side, Hen House, is a good funk instrumental ruined by hollering and vocal interjections that reach a truly annoying level. If this sounds like your sort of thing, you can listen to it on this blog.

The flip side, After Hours, is more to my liking. There are still a few vocal grunts and so forth, but generally it's a pretty enjoyable slow blues. It's here for your listening and downloading pleasure, dubbed from the 45.

After Hours

If you're anxious to add this to your collection be prepared to pay -- a lot. Copies are currently listed anywhere from €20 to €85 on French websites. That's from $26 to $112. You'd have to be a fanatic, very rich or both.
