Jimmy Carl Black - When Do We Get Paid?

Originally released in 1996, When Do We Get Paid ? pulls together
material from a variety of radio broadcasts, live recordings, rare,
hard to find and in some cases previously unreleased nuggets from the
discography of the inimicable JCB. Throughout the album's 17 cuts JCB
is featured on a variety of recordings from the late 70's to the late
80's in the company of combos including the Grandmothers, Holzhaus,
Black And Terrazas, the Jolly Rogers, Big Sonny And The Lo Boys,
Arthur Brown and the X-Tra Combo. Most interesting of all though has
to be the inclusion of JCB's debut recording with the Keys from 1962
in the shape of their ultra rare Stretch Pants / Just A Matter Of Time
45. Largely repeating the formula of its predecessor, Where's The
$%&#@ ' Beer ? finds JCB  trading licks with the Muffin Men, the
Farrell & Black band, Geronimo Black ( alongside fellow ex Mothers
Bunk Gardner and Denny Walley ), Robbie Robertson, B.E.P. ( featuring
Roy Estrada ) and the Mannish Boys on a selection of tracks recorded
at various times between 1972 and 2001 before the album closes with a
series of interview segments where JCB recounts his early years and
his time with the Mothers.
Grahame Bent (Record Collector)

Jimmy Carl Black started recording two years before he joined the band that became Frank Zappa's legendary Mothers of Invention.  That early group was The Keys, whose 1962 singel Stretch Pants/Just A Matter of Time is a prized rarity.  Both sides of that single are on this CD along with tracks recorded with The Grandmothers, Holzhaus, Black and Terrazas, The Jolly Rogers, Big Sonny and The Lo Boys, Arthur Brown and The X-Tra Combo.

Originally released only in the UK in 1996, this album has been completely remastered and re-EQ'd by Greg Russo, and sounds better than ever.  Three bonus tracks have been included: Fever, Lady Queen Bee and Blue Eyed Woman.
