In 1977, Kurt Hauenstein, multi–instrumentalist and forward thinking musician founds SUPERMAX in the city of Frankfurt am Rhein, and he releases his first Album "Don't stop the music". After his first tour through Germany’s biggest concert venues, SUPERMAX changes gear into the club-scene and introduces his exocentric, monotone (aficionados will know…) and smooth sound to a new flair oriented towards the European and American Underground-scene. The second album "World of today" yields a barn-burner hit after eleven months. SUPERMAX breaks all sales records and becomes "Best selling Artist" of WEA-Records. SUPERMAX receives its first Golden album, including the "Golden Aphax-Tape" award. Over 160 feverish concerts were played in Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Holland, Belgium and Spain. Born from this album was and still is the ambient disco-hit "Lovemachine", which excels SUPERMAX into galaxies of ephemeral disco heaven. Towards the end of 1978, Kurt Hauenstein leaves the European mainland to seek new inputs in the Caribbean Islands. (http://www.supermax.cc/history.html)

The Spiders from Mars group had its origins in Bowie's earlier backing outfit The Hype, which featured Ronson and Woodmansey, but Tony Visconti on bass. They were briefly signed as a band on its own, known as Ronno. With Bolder taking over bass, they were subsequently named via the landmark 1972 Bowie concept album The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars and were billed as such on the accompanying large-scale Ziggy Stardust Tour. They were present again on Bowie's 1973 album Aladdin Sane. Another leg of the tour followed that year, with the final show captured in the film Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars. The group joined Bowie in the theatrical style of the material's presentation. Ronson's guitar and arranging during the Spiders from Mars era not only fit into this style, but also provided much of the underpinning for later punk rock musicians. In 1975 Bolder and Woodmansey reformed the band without Ronson, and were joined in this lineup by Mike Garson, Dave Black, Pete McDonald. Their self-titled album, released in 1976, was their only album before the group disbanded. The name came from the famous UFO sighting where a stadium crowd thought they had witnessed Martian spacecraft which turned out to be migrating spiders and not from the Martian areographic features often labelled as 'spiders' and 'baby spiders.' In 1976 the Spiders From Mars album was released. In 1975 the Spiders From Mars had been reformed by Trevor Bolder and Woody Woodmansey but without Mick Ronson and with no contribution or connection to David Bowie.

Swiss band KEDAMA was formed in 1971 by Christian Linder (guitars, keyboards) and Richard Rothenberger (keyboards), and the band as such was finalized when drummer Peter Suter hooked up with them in 1972. In 1973 the band won a rock band contest giving them free studio time, which were used in between gigs to create and record their 1976 debut album "Live At Sunrise Studios" - a live in the studio recording where the trio played quirky instrumental numbers with references to the likes of Gentle Giant and King Crimson. Only two years later the career of Kedama hit full brakes though. Debts were accumulating, and the changing musical climate lead to fewer people wanting to see the band perform live. After a concert with an audience of just 30 people in 1978 the band decided to call it quits. After several years of a steadily building interest in their first album a CD reissue saw the light of day in 1999. The popularity of this second release of the album spurned a partial reunion of the band. Linder and Rothenberger got together and recorded new material, which surfaced as the self-titled CD "Kedama" in 2002. Kedama has since recorded at least one more full length album, "Hope Is...", which have yet to see the light of day. Furthermore, material enough to fill 3 more CDs have been recorded as well, but has since been scrapped over the years as the creative duo after consideration felt that this material didn't fulfill their ambitions. Time will have to tell whether or not any more of the material from this Swiss act will see the light of day sometime.

KALEVALA was formed in 1969 by Juha Salonen (bass), Remu Aaltonen (drums/vocals) and Albert Järvinen (guitar). Their first name was VIETNAM, but they had to change it in order to get concerts. This first line-up played straightforward rock'n'roll, and they were a popular live act in Finland. There were no studio recordings from this line-up, but the Finnish broadcasting company recorded their performance from 1970 "Ruisrock" festival. After this the line-up changed. Remu founded HURRIGANES, which Albert also joined later. Now KALEVALA's musical direction was changed to more progressive direction. The new musicians on their second line-up were Markku Luukkanen on drums, Matti Kurkinen on Guitar and Harri Saksala doing singing. They recorded one album, "People No Names" (1972) which was released by Finnlevy. They had some guest musicians helping on doing it: pianist Olli Ahvenlahti, Raimo Wallen playing flute and on acoustic guitar Ile Kallio, who was playing on HURRIGANES during that time. The result was quite unique, you can form your own opinion of it by listening the sample mp3 presented on this page. The band was very unstable, as they had again changes in their line-up. Now they had Zape "Limousine" Leppänen on vocals, who has worked with many respected Finnish artists. The band recorded an album "Boogie Jungle" (1975), which is again more basic rock music. They had Jim Pembroke doing their lyrics plus backing vocals, and Jukka Gustavson playing keyboards on one track. Shortly after this band faced a sudden catastrophy, as Matti Kurkinen got in to a fatal car accident. Their name was defined as KALEVALA ORCHESTRA for their next album "Abraham's Blue Refrain" (1977). After this they toured Europe with ANGE, but they faced financial problems, and the musicians disbanded KALEVALA went to different directions.Some members of the band rejoined in studio 1995, but they couldn't get a record deal. These new tracks are available on "Anthology" (2004), which has some live recordings and before unreleased material on it.

Another in Entertainment One’s This Ain’t No Tribute series, this one features 13 tracks associated with Janis Joplin done in blues style by veteran singers in the genre. Since everything Joplin recorded essentially came out of her own Texas roadhouse approach to love, life, and music, nothing here is a serious departure from what she did in the first place, but it’s nice to hear Joplin gems like “Ball and Chain” done by the great Etta James, “Piece of My Heart” in the Otis Clay version, and Taj Mahal's wonderful and inspired take on “Mercedes Benz.”

Eric Clapton has drawn so much from the blues -- a position he has admitted, endorsed, and never denied -- that it seems just a bit odd to see his songs (including songs he covered, like Robert Johnson's “Crossroads,” that have become Clapton songs in many people’s minds) translated back into a blues format when most of them were never far removed from the blues in the first place. Here we have it, though, versions of Clapton-associated songs done by blues veterans, including Carl Weathersby (“Lay Down Sally”), Buddy Guy (“Strange Brew”), Bo Diddley (he offers his own take on his own composition “Before You Accuse Me,” a song Clapton has played frequently in concert), and Honeyboy Edwards and James Cotton (they team up for a nice version of Johnson's “Crossroads”), and if it seems like one has heard all this before, well, that’s because Clapton did them.

That the Rolling Stones built a long and illustrious career with the blues as a template is hardly any kind of revelation, and while Mick Jagger and Keith Richards developed into a pretty fair and often brilliant songwriting team, the Stones themselves never ventured too far from the Chicago blues model that brought them all together in the first place. It should come as no surprise, then, that when veteran blues players get their hands on a Rolling Stones song, it usually works out well. This set has several examples of this migration back to the blues, and some of them, like Clarence “Gatemouth” Brown's shakedown of “Ventilator Blues,” Otis Clay's stunning take on “Wild Horses,” and Johnny Copeland's guitar-dominated “Tumblin’ Dice” (it was Copeland's last recording before his death in 1997), are near definitive interpretations. This set is a perfect illustration that “whatever goes around, comes around.” ~ Steve Leggett, Rovi.

Although Blues Power: Songs of Eric Clapton contains a couple versions of blues standards recorded at one time or another by Clapton, it's mostly devoted to covers of Clapton compositions by blues veterans and relative newcomers alike (i.e., either influences on Clapton or artists who have been influenced by him). The performances are generally spot-on, but that's to be expected from an artist roster that includes Koko Taylor, Pinetop Perkins, Otis Rush, Bo Diddley, Buddy Guy, Larry McCray, and Eric Gales, among others.

The idea behind Paint It Blue: Songs of the Rolling Stones is such a simple, appealing one that it's a wonder that the record wasn't made before 1997. The Stones never made any secret of their debt to the blues, so it makes sense that their songs would sound good when performed by blues and R&B artists. That's the idea behind Paint It Blue -- contemporary blues and R&B artists sing some of the band's bluesiest songs. While some may quibble that the idea is a little too cute, the performances by Luther Allison ("You Can't Always Get What You Want"), Junior Wells ("(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction"), Taj Mahal ("Honky Tonk Women"), Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown ("Ventilator Blues"), the Holmes Bros. ("Beast of Burden") and Bobby Womack ("It's All Over Now"), among many others, are hard to argue with. It's a rock-solid record that confirms what great songwriters Mick Jagger and Keith Richards are.
