Naomi Payne - Jazz, Blues, Classics
Website Naomi Payne
Details Naomi’s musical talent and extraordinary voice were first recognised when she was just a young teenager. This was hardly surprising given the way in which her parents had immersed her in the music of Bessie Smith, Leadbelly, Robert Johnson and other blues Greats and it was only natural that she should move onto listening to such jazz Divas as Billie Holiday and Ella Fitzgerald.

Naomi’s desire to entertain led her to sing with a number of different bands on the jazz and blues circuit in her early twenties, and she was chosen to sing live on BBC Radio Shropshire in 1996.

Despite taking a short break to marry and have children Naomi inevitably returned to her singing career three years ago and immediately found herself in great demand at a variety of society functions, including weddings, fashion shows, vintage themed dances/parties (playing popular music from the 1900s - 1940s) and the 2009 and 2010 Ludlow Food Festival.

Currently Naomi provides a stunning front for a sixteen piece show band as well as mesmerising the audience with her more intimate Naomi Payne Quartet which plays jazz, blues, classic and Latin numbers. Together these two allow her to give full range to her magnificent voice, equally comfortable delivering the husky blues classics as the show stopping Broadway hits.

For bookings or further information, contact Naomi:

Retrospective - A New Nostalgia Label - includes George Formby, Fred Astaire, Humphrey Lyttelton, Nat King Cole, Paul Robeson and Tony Martin, and single discs by Alma Cogan, André Previn, Eartha Kitt, Louis Armstrong, Perez Prado and Sammy Davis Jr.
Website Retrospective Records

Launched in October 2008, the RETROSPECTIVE label is a partnership between Nimbus Records and veteran nostalgia specialist Ray Crick, who has the job of selecting the repertoire, compiling the programmes, sourcing the highest quality  transfers, and supplying biographies and informative notes for the booklets. “I am delighted to be involved with RETROSPECTIVE because it enables me to create CD programmes that bring alive the finest recordings by those wonderful  vintage entertainers of yesteryear, both popular and jazz, for people to enjoy today.”

New releases are added every month, delivering the very best in musical nostalgia from music hall to rock ‘n’ roll – and everything in between! We hope you will relish these classic recordings from the past. Packaged with an iconic  series design, and with booklets containing all the detailed information needed to enhance your pleasure, RETROSPECTIVE is a highly collectable range.

In 1989 Nimbus turned the opera world upside down when it launched the historic reissue series Prima Voce. Taking mint condition 78s they presented recordings made by the great singers between 1902 and 1958.

Adrian Farmer, Music Director for Nimbus, commented, "We decided right at the beginning to dedicate Prima Voce to Opera singers, which meant that a great many of the more popular performers were passed by. We now feel that the time is right to revisit the period and showcase some of the popular artists who made the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s the golden age of music."

The label launched in October with 25 releases including 2 CD sets by George Formby, Fred Astaire, Humphrey Lyttelton, Nat King Cole, Paul Robeson and Tony Martin, and single discs by Alma Cogan, André Previn, Eartha Kitt, Louis  Armstrong, Perez Prado and Sammy Davis Jr. The label will release ten discs per month covering both Nostalgia and Vintage Jazz.

The new label will be managed by veteran nostalgia specialist Ray Crick, who is tasked with sourcing the highest quality transfers, plus detailed biographies and informative notes for the booklets. "I am delighted to be involved with  RETROSPECTIVE because it gives me the chance to create CD programmes that will bring alive the finest recordings by those wonderful vintage entertainers of yesteryear, both popular and jazz, for people to enjoy here and now. The first 25  sets out our stall, with music stretching from the music hall to jug bands to rock ‘n’ roll! We anticipate that the entire project will total more than 400 releases, each with a smart series design, making for a highly collectable range."

RETROSPECTIVE is a joint venture between Wyastone Estate Limited and Retrospective Recordings Limited. All sets will be manufactured in the UK and the USA using the Nimbus disc and print 'on demand' production services and distributed  world-wide by Wyastone Estate Limited. The in-house production facility ensures that titles are never overstocked or out of stock and that we can respond immediately to market demand.

RETROSPECTIVE is available from all good record shops or can be purchased directly from the website. A full printed catalogue is also available.

Midland Record Co - the UK's leading independent supplier of specialist pre-recorded budget CD and DVD products - TRADE ONLY PLEASE
Website Midland Record Co


Midland are the UK's leading independent supplier of specialist pre-recorded budget CD and DVD products to non-traditional outlets. A family run business of some 50 years whose journey began on the rain and snow lashed markets of the  Midlands. The business expanded rapidly during the sixties and seventies with Midland becoming a leading player in the wholesale distribution of major label overstocks and deletions worldwide, whilst continuing to service the non traditional retail sector here in the UK.

With the industry wide problem of piracy and downloading making higher value products virtually impossible to retail, Midland felt the need to give our customers something different and have concentrated our efforts towards the more neglected areas of audio, visual home entertainment, and now stock what we believe to be the most comprehensive range of Special Interest DVD’s in the UK.

Our core business of supplying our customers with ranges of super budget and budget CD and DVD remains the same, but we have now incorporated these new specialist product lines aimed specifically at the online market place namely Amazon, Play, and Ebay.

With over 6000 titles available and new lines arriving daily we are confident that you will find many items that will compliment your existing range of product. Should you need any help with your initial selections please contact us, with over 50 years experience you can be sure our advice will prove invaluable.
