1 - TEK, DENIZ -& JAMES WILLIAMSON- - ACOUSTIC K.O. (10") - (EP) 
LEOPARD LADY


(From James Williamson) Thoughts about Acoustic K.O. I first met Deniz and Anne Tek in 2011 when doing the Ron Asheton Tribute show at the Michigan Theatre in Ann Arbor. Deniz had been a good friend of the Ashetons (having come from Ann Arbor like them) and had been asked to play on some of the old Stooges tunes that night. Later we stayed in touch during the times I would visit Australia on tour with the Stooges. And, it turned out that he visited the Big Island of Hawaii frequently as do my wife and I. In fact during one of our get togethers on the Big Island Deniz mentioned that we should record some acoustic songs together. Maybe do some of my old stuff. It was later that day, hiking in a remote area on the Big Island, that we came across some abandoned trucks. Anne got the camera out, and said "there's your record cover!" Oddly, in a parallel development, a long time fan and incredible collector of Stooges Memorabilia, Hakan Beckman had suggested a couple years earlier that Night Theme should be orchestrated. Further, he had developed a fantasy album cover called "Acoustic K.O." I loved those ideas and now had the vehicle to realize them. So, thats how it all started. However, once we began recording the album took on a life of its own. If this was to be called "Acoustic K.O." It needed to be entirely acoustic. Michael Urbano broke out his old 1920s drum kit and Gregg Foreman used my old 1930s pump organ and a piano. Guitars of course were acoustic, and the only exception was the bass that Bob Glaub played was an old hollow body Kay since an upright just didnt sound right for these songs. The horn section rounded everything out. For Night Theme, I enlisted the help of Mark Culbertson, musician extraordinaire, who had played contra-bass for me on the albums "Ready to Die" and "Re-Licked" to do the arrangement. He did an extraordinary job! I was able to find an incredible group of players called "The Awesome Orchestra" from Berkeley, CA under the direction of David Moschler to realize Marks arrangement and I couldn't be happier with the results. It all came together once we layed down Denizs vocals while in Hawaii and with the help of Petra Haden doing some backing vocals and violin and with Annie Hardy (Giant Drag) doing the duet with Deniz on "No Sense Of Crime" we had performances to be proud of.

4 - WILLIAMSON, JAMES -& LISA KEKAULA- - I GOT A RIGHT - (7") 
LEOPARD LADY


While on a break from touring this year, the members of The Stooges (sans Iggy) got together and recorded songs, which were penned by Iggy Pop and James Williamson in 1973/74. These songs were never properly recorded since the band didn't have a record deal at the time. The Stooges' James Williamson, Mike Watt & touring drummer Toby Dammit are joined on "I Got A Right" & "Heavy Liquid" by the Bellrays' R&B singer Lisa Kekaula, who adds her own forceful and soul-drenching takes on these two freshly recorded gems. With backing vocals by PETRA HADEN. Second in the series!

5 - WILLIAMSON, JAMES -& LISA KEKAULA- - I LOVE MY TUTU - (7") 
LEOPARD LADY


This is the "Children's" record since it has a Jawaiian rhythm on one of the tracks with the subject being about a Hawaiian Grandmother. The B side is a rocked up title which is inspired by the book "Where the Wild Things Are". Both tracks are sung by Lisa Kekaula (Bellrays) and sound great, and the single is super-limited and benefits a local charity...

6 - WILLIAMSON, JAMES -& MAIA- - SICKKK - (7") 
LEOPARD LADY


This is James Williamson's third and last single of the year. All three to benefit non profits. This time Williamson is teamed up with a talented 19 year old singer/songwriter named "Maia". Maia is not just any 19 year, but one which has received a full scholarship for vocal music and composition to Berkeley School of Music in Boston, where she is attending now. Previous efforts this year included a collaboration with Petra Haden on "Blues Jumped The Rabbit" and "Last Kind Words" to benefit the Tazzy Animal Rescue Fund and a collaboration with Lisa Kekaula on "I Love My Tutu" and "Never Far From Where The Wild Things Are" to benefit Project Hawaii which helps homeless children in Hawaii. This third single will be the last record on which Williamson's iconic "Leopard Lady" guitar will be played. This guitar has been used on every record Williamson has made from his first album "Raw Power" to the present. He is donating both the Leopard Lady Les Paul Custom, as well as his Gibson B25N acoustic guitar, plus all proceeds from this single, to the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame Museum for posterity.

7 - WILLIAMSON, JAMES -& PETRA HADEN- - BLUES JUMPED THE RABBIT - (7") 
LEOPARD LADY


This is the second of three singles that James Williamson will be releasing this year. The first was with The Bellrays' Lisa Kekaula for their single "I Love My Tutu" / "Never Far From Where The Wild Things Are" out now digitally and on 7-inch vinyl. Proceeds from this first record will benefit Project Hawai'i, which helps homeless children in Hawaii. The Stooges' James Williamson has collaborated with singer, violinist and composer Petra Haden for this new benefit single "Blues Jumped The Rabbit" backed with "Last Kind Words." Both of these songs are traditional folk/blues compositions. The lyrics for the A-side can be traced back to Blind Lemon Jefferson's 1926 recording "Rabbit Foot Blues" for Paramount Records, while the B-side was first recorded by blues enigma Geeshie Wiley back in 1930, also for Paramount. James said "I asked her to come in and do a demo with me in L.A. while working on the last Iggy and the Stooges record Ready to Die. I was hooked. Not only did she sing with perfect pitch, but she also played her violin with authority and tasteful music sensibilities. I used her to great effect as a background singer thereafter on Ready to Die, my last solo album Re-Licked and "I Love My Tutu" single, but I have always wished that I could find the right songs to spotlight her as a lead vocalist."
