Title: Melodeon Recordings on Spotify
Post by: Clive Williams on March 19, 2010, 10:20:35 AM
Yves Lambert has his own band now, his CD "Le Monde � Lambert" is fantastic.

Oh my goodness - Yves Lambert's Bal a l'huile is on Spotify! I do wonder what other melodeon-featuring gems are hidden in there...

Markku Lepisto's 'Polku' is there too... and ... only just noticed, so is 'Silta'! And Lepisto&Lehti's 'Helsinki'!

Anybody 'spotted' any other gems?

Cheers,

Clive

... and, count 'em, *4* Marc Perrone albums (but not La Forcelle or Cinema Memoire unfortunately), Ricardo Tesi, Kepa Junkera...

... 6 John Kirkpatrick albums...

... Panic at the Cafe from Nigel Eaton/Andy Cutting...

... not sure if these are all licenced for non-UK users though; I believe Spotify has some albums only licenced for particular countries. Try 'em and see!

Coo, thanks for this - expanded my Spotify lists no end, up to now I've used it to listen to those 60s bands that I remember but do not have CDs (Jefferson Airplane, etc).

Incidentally there's a lots of Steeleye and some Maddy Prior, also Incredible String Band (an old favourite).

Not enough time to catch it all...

oooh....oooh...oooh.... and from Germany, Ulman! If you haven't heard their first album, 'Acoustic Power', it's fantastic. Very much in the Blowzabella style, and Johannes Ulman is one of the best box players I've ever heard. Their second album hasn't grabbed me quite as much; your mileage may vary of course.

Stuff wot I've found:

Trip to Harrogate - tunes from the Joshua Jackson MS
Lau - three albums worth!
Boozoo Chavis - great cajun
Joe Falcone - more cajun
Mardi Gras, Vintage Cajun Sons - speaks for its self!
Ed Rennie - Narrative
Bask - a really good Swedish band (no melodeon, but definitely worth a listen)
Joe Derrane - They have his latest album aged 70 and the 1991 re issue of his first album recorded when he was 17. A goodun.
Loads of Marin Simpson

and more, but a cup of tea is calling meee....

Met Johannes at 15 - fantastic. They whole familiy had driven from E Germany in a little Trabant (with full kit camping gear, 2 accordions ..)  Now that the boys are grown (and perhaps less maternally influenced) they are doing some quite wacky stuff. I'll see if I can find the youtube ref - but it's no longer folk.

I didn't really engage this thead above so apologies for slight drift. Google quickly found the website and although 'invitation' is still there they also have daily and �10 monthly rates. Have to say I'm tempted. Has anyone else taken the plunge?  Does it work off your own main PC?

Yep, I've signed up this month. Not sure I'll keep it long term as I have had the free account for a while, but I'll probably be tempted come renewal time. It works and sounds great on my PC and Iphone (over wifi), though I do have a fast broadband connection - I can't predict how it would work over a slower connection.

I'm also a big fan of emusic too - a great selection of non-mainlabel (i.e. the sort of stuff we like!) available as mp3 downloads.

I signed up to Spotify when it was first released, but for some reason it wouldn't work for me.  I was a bit sceptical about it and couldn't be bothered trying to sort it out.  Now it's become well established, and this thread prompted me to try again - I still had the original installation file.  It prompted me to download the latest version and now it's working. 

I'm just starting to explore it, and there seems to be some good stuff.  I'm listening to the Goldberg Variations as I write - it's OK, but what it really needs is a melodeon  (:)

Try Swedish band Filska. I'm listening to "Bethany's Waltz" right now, but have the feeling it's too delicate for me to attempt on the melodeon. Frifrot is another good band if you're in a particularly Swedish kind of mood, or check out Ale Moller for some great fiddle playing.

One tune that can work on melodeon is the lovely Josefin's Waltz. Dervish have a good version of this on Spotify. People round here seem to play it in F, which is probably a mean trick to exclude melodeons, but it's also played in other keys.

Oh, thank you for that info, Clive. I had tried searching for Chris Wood on Spotify but found nothing (well, only the wrong Chris Wood).
Somehow I managed to get into Spotify near the start, when all you had to do was find the site and register. It looks as if numbers are being limited now.

Are you sure it's limited to 20 hours a month? I use it for a few hours most evenings, and I've never had any problems. The adverts are a little annoying, but you get used to it. No different to the radio...

Yes, it's a new package they're offering - they've changed their packages around today. If you've got the old client and don't let it upgrade, I'm not quite sure what would happen, nor what happens if you were already using the free ad-supported service.

I'd like to access the playlist, Ollie, but I'm stuck as to how to do it. I'm already a Spotify user. When I click on the playlist, it asks me which application I want to use to open it. I'm chosen Spotify.exe from Programs, and when I select this it opens Spotify but I can't see the new playlist. Please can someone help a hopeless techno-numpty to sort this out?

Incidentally, I have been using the free-with-adverts version up to now (the trick is to wait until just before the end of a track, then start another track, and that way you skip the adverts). Today they sent me a new "End user agreement" which seemed to tell me that there were several different versions of the Spotify agreement, defined what those were, and asked me to accept that I would read and abide by the T&C for my agreement. I clicked "Accept", expecting to be told something more, but nothing else happened, so I seem to be carrying on as usual.

Indeed.  I've never heard Fabrice sing (!) - he's excellent.  And isn't that Bourbonnais bagpipe good? Both are absolutely rooted in powerful folk traditions and I love that jazz edge.   

btw Fabrice's brother Phillipe is also well respected on Gurdy (and is on Spotify). As teenagers the Besson bros. were regular winners of the competition that Maxou runs at Embraud

Marge, re Bethany and Josefin.

I taught myself Josefin's by watching youtube with Shaun playing melodeon- loved it. Play a lovely harmony with friend on fiddle. Have tried it on melodeon but have to fluff one note as I can't go low enough!

Bethany's I was taught one evening by a friend at the Burwell Bash, on fiddle. I can now play it on box - the the middle part has a sneaky little run of notes which I am practicing like mad. I do take your point about it being a delicate little tune and note really right for oompah-pahs, but  until I can play supporting chords like Andy Cutting, that is the way I am having to play it. ;D

Now then, what's all this spotify thingy???

Five Men in a Boat is an international folk quintet consisting of two Norwegians, two Frenchmen and a token Englishman - all established artists in their own right. They sing in four languages, including Occitan and play a wide range of instruments.

Gabriel Fliflet, accordionist and daredevil singer.
Frode Nyvold possesses one of the most characteristic voices in Norwegian folk.
Emmanuel Pariselle is a one-man folk institution.
Didier Oliver – singer, fiddler and bagpiper.

For those without spotify, you can stream online/buy here:

A few more that's joined recently:

Liam Robinson Dance Band - Welcome Here Again
Polkaworks - Borrowed Shoes
The Melrose Quartet - 50 Verses
Haddo - Borderlands
Duo Tanghe-Coudroy - Oiseaux de Nuit

(and my own Vivant's second album Tree of Life is on there too, but it's under Vivant, not under Mark Prescott and Clive Williams like the original disc; confusing eh?)

De Temps Antan's latest 'Ce monde ici bas' has just joined. There's a few more guests on the album than on their previous, but I think they've kept the spirit of what they are (hot 3 piece Quebecois) and if anything, I'd say it's stronger than their previous albums.

Saul Rose's new album with James Delarre, "Cabin Fever", is now on spotify and it is absolutely wonderful; as is the Askew Sister's new album "In the Air or the Earth" which has also been put on.

Forgive me if I have missed it in this thread so far but I have been enjoying an album on S by Five Men in a Boat. In combination with the Amazing Slowdowner app it has been a good place to learn Otis Thomas' The New Land. Features Emmanuel Pariselle.

Hadn't he really not been mentioned?

Quite a few tracks by Sir Jimmy Shand, enjoying a lively Polka at this very moment... (:)

Not specifically a recording, but I have curated a large Breton playlist on Spotify that goes heavy on the melodeon. Great shuffle play listening.

I was actually looking for more playlists with music we melodeonists might like. melodeon-related? western-European trad? Northern-European trad? Any thoughts?

What I've done in the past is to use their "radio" feature to pull up related stuff. Recently it has been La Chavannee as the band name to bring up lots of bal folk: Blowzabella, Naragonia, a number of the other French groups with diatonic accordion.

don't know whether or not its been mentioned on here before but the CD 'sook and blaw' by Ythan music trust is well worth a listen ( not sure if its stillavailable but if not maybe worth trying ebay.
Melodeon, harmonica and concertina classics from 1907 to 1935 includes tracks by William Hannah,, will powrie saniel and peter wyper, alec Bisset, jimmy shand  etc etc.
