Released Stateside in 1981 on Stax Records MPS 8511 while The Staples Singers were briefly signed to 20th Century - this notorious 8-track LP is actually a compilation of old recordings from the 1970's reworked and reissued without the band's approval (or even knowledge) - put out at a budget price and largely forgotten about. But amongst its 'embellishments' are absolute barnstormers - namely the near fanatical following given to "Trippin' On Your Love" in the UK.

This is the first CD reissue and remaster of the album ever - and Ace Records CDSXE 139 is a typically brill reissue (33:23 minutes).

The remaster is by NICK ROBBINS at London's Sound Mastering and the… Read more

It's 1866 - and crusty old Reverend Francis Ashby (a Fellow Of Oxford University in England) is 46, unmarried and about to depart on his annual holiday to the Swiss Alps to partake of the bracing air and spirit rejuvenating views.

Like Ashby - Haskell is British you see - and the very thought of such things is an anathema to him...

But once there - two American ladies Miss Caroline (40) and Miss Elinor Hartley (20) are out on the mountains - when… Read more

Looking perhaps a bit more portly around the old midriff than one would like – our three ageing heroes take centre stage after the band has warmed up the crowd with a funky James Brown instrumental. And were off…

Filmed November 2012 in Hi Def and from multiple angles (UK released March 2014) – “The Dukes Of September” looks glorious - with the Lincoln Centre surely being one of the most beautiful venues in the world (and ideally sized too). You also begin to notice as the camera pans around the top notch band that the paint on the bass guitar is knackered, the sax is a bit rusted around the gills and the keyboards ‘White Lightning’ McDonald uses has been teleported from 1976 to… Read more
