The following reviews were published in cashbox Magazine October 23, 1971. I have kept the reviews as they were originally published.

Melanie
Neighborhood Label

Melanie has a brand new label to go with her “Brand New Key.” The tale of the intrepid roller skater, which also happens to be the artist’s new chart single is only one part of the lovingly designed quilt of songs which is this album. Like the last Rod Stewart album, this album has its little one minute type surprises, “Tell Me Why” and “Ring Around The Moon,” which pop up unexpectedly and the tunes which Melanie has wrapped around them. Particularly the assertive “Steppin,’” the wistful “Little Bit Of Me,” and the spirited “Ring The Living Bell” are among her very best works. Many will want to gather this album.

Sunday afternoon thoughts about art….


Sometimes I think the whole dilemma with our lives as artists is that at one time, before we tried or found ourselves compelled by economics to build a living with it, we reveled in it. Whether we played or sang or booked, or managed, at some point, our art was a compendium of absolute love. A collection of passion and inspiration. Then, piece by piece, as we committed more and more of our time and energy and selves to it, art chose to strangle us ever so slowly. Eventually a lot of us found ourselves tied to the metaphorical train tracks of art as a living, being pummeled and pulled apart. Lives fell apart, addictions appeared. Normal -once so offending to us- looked strangely like something we might like to try. And then we found, to our utter surprise and sadness, that no heroic cowboy on a horse was ever going to release us from our artistic bonds. And we remain tied down, year after year, when what we’d really like to do is ride off into the sunset to a place of hope and warmth and conviviality.
But yet, we cannot stop. We create. It is what we do. No matter what form that creation takes: cooking, painting, singing, playing, dancing, drawing, writing,- we, as artists, are compelled to do our utmost to make the world a more palatable, beautiful place for those who don’t practice art as a part of daily life. Through the artist, humans understand they are not alone with their demons and desires. Through the artist, humans are touched at a level that stirs the cells and sweetens the soul. Art, for those of us who make it, is full of raw emotion. We struggle, in so many ways, to harness our creativity and make it presentable and good and true. And if we’re in tune with our souls, and only then, we rise to a level that exceeds mere existence. We connect with spirit, we commune unfettered with God and become wholly the consummate, soul-filled human beings we were meant to be.

Indeed, over Shaw’s thirty years as a producer, engineer and label owner, he’s worked with a plethora of artists and styles. In the 70′s, he pioneered sounds for the radical punk movement. In the 90′s he was widely revered as the producer of choice for the UK’s Riot Grrrl bands. Shaw has had hits on both sides of the Atlantic as a producer and engineer.
But there was one thing in music world he’d never done: host a radio show. After moving from London to Key West earlier this year, that is now another accomplishment on his very long impressive list.
“I had lunch with Jack from Pirate Radio, just lunch, mind you, ” recalls Shaw. “And he asked if I wanted to perhaps host a radio show that featured indie and unsigned music. How could I refuse!”
Shaw quickly recorded a mock up show and, less than three weeks after the initial inquiry from Pirate Radio, had The Indie and Unsigned Show ready to air.
“It’s really a show that digs into my big pile of influential music. It’s everything from punk to bands to singer/songwriter tunes. Our first show featured the first USA play of the new single from Julian Lennon and Matt Backer.
The Indie and Unsigned Show with host UK record producer Ian Shaw now airs every Sunday evenings on WKYZ Pirate Radio Key West. Shaw showcases the groups he’s worked with over the years as well as a bit of new music he’s come across while producing and engineering records and spans years as well as genres.
