Blow Up A Go Go!

Dancefloor Classics


Put this in your CD player and you'll be set for the night. The album is like a time machine, sending you back to 60s London, during the height of the mod scene. Unless you were a fixture at mod clubs in the 60s or are somewhat of an expert, there's a very, very good chance you've only heard two or three songs on here. Another great thing about the album is that it's no niche album; the great tunes, Hammond organ, and Northern Soul beat throughout are universal. It's catchy and dancable, and I guarantee that when you play it people will come up to you and beg to borrow it. There are no low points on this album, in terms of tempo (there's nothing you can't dance to) or quality (not a single clunker to be found). The only downside is the price, which is pretty high. Unfortunately most decent mod comps on Amazon are not cheap. But if you are going to spend your money on a CD, the bang for the buck that Blow Up A-Go-Go! offers is unbeatable.

Decca Originals - The Psychedelic Scene

I'm back. Did you miss me? lol

Ralph Quirino, Amazon.com

25 superb examples of British psychedelia (the late 1960s) as originally released for the Decca and Deram U.K. labels. If all you know of "psych" is The Electric Prunes and The Seeds, then stand by to be amazed. While most of these bands remained "nobodies", some were able to transgress the era: Al Stewart turns in a suitably orchestral "Turn Into Earth" (with a far more "americanized" sounding vocal from the noted "Year Of The Cat" singer) while The Moody Blues' "Love & Beauty" (an early, rare track recorded prior to "Nights In White Satin") gives us a glint of what's to come. Other winners include Timebox's "Gone Is The Sad Man" (Mike Patto never got the props he so righteously deserved!), The Accent's "Red Sky At Night", Human Instinct's "A Day In My Mind's Mind" and The Plague's "Here Today, Gone Tomorrow". The remastered sound is excellent (despite some of the more primitive recording sessions) and the liner notes - while way too brief - provide decent information. In short, a total keeper. File proudly next to your "Nuggets" boxed set.

Secret Affair

Secret Affair - Time For Action (The Anthology)

Reviewer: Stephen SPAZ Schnee, All Music Guide

Whether you were a mod or a rocker (ask Ringo), there was always something to love about Secret Affair. With a cocky frontman (Ian Page) and a slashing, dashing guitarist (Dave Cairns), the band's mixture of influences like the Who, the Kinks, and the Northern soul sound came out sounding completely different to its mod counterparts (i.e.: the Jam, the Lambrettas, et al). With three studio albums to the band's credit (all reissued by the Captain Mod label) and a handful of live CDs and compilations to choose from, one would think that the band's catalog had been picked dry. But then along comes Time for Action, the ultimate Secret Affair anthology. Featuring just enough hits to satisfy the curious, this is really a treasure trove for the Secret Affair fan. Two discs featuring 41 tracks may seem like overkill, but once you press play on disc one, you'll be drawn into a musical universe filled with quality pop music created by musicians with a distinct vision. Beginning with early singles and unreleased demos as New Hearts, Page and Cairns' style was already in place (albeit a bit more raw than the later Secret Affair material). The rest of the discs are filled with Secret Affair A-sides, album tracks, and plenty of unreleased demos, B-sides, U.S. remixes, and more. If you own all three albums on CD and/or any of the compilations, there is still plenty here that is unavailable elsewhere. In fact, two-thirds of these recordings are only available on this compilation. The quality level is high, with some of the demos sounding even better than the released versions ("Don't Look Down" immediately comes to mind). If you are a collector of Britpop, mod, or power pop, then you must own this. For once, a worthy band has been intelligently anthologized.

01. Just another teenage anthem

The Birds

The Birds - The Collector's Guide to Rare British Birds

Reviewer: Bruce Eder, All Music Guide

The Birds were one of the hard-luck outfits in the annals of '60s British rock. By reputation, they were one of the top r&b-based outfits in England during the mid-1960's, with a sound as hard and appealing as the Who, the Yardbirds or the Small Faces. In contrast to a lot of other acts that never charted a hit, the Birds are remembered slightly by some serious fans, and are mentioned in several history books-but for entirely the wrong reasons. The Birds are remembered for A) the fact that Ron Wood got his start in the band before moving on to bigger things with the Faces and the Rolling Stones; and B) that they shared a name, albeit spelled differently, with an American band of considerable prominence. Nobody knows a lot about their music, however, which, on record, consisted of fewer than a dozen songs. Ron Wood (guitar, harmonica, vocals), Tony Munroe (guitar, vocals) and Kim Gardner (bass) grew up within a block of each other, along with original drummer Bob Langham (succeeded by Pete Hocking, aka Pete McDaniel), and had gotten together with lead singer Ali McKenzie to form a band in 1964, while all were in their teens. They were based in Yiewsley in West London, and played the local community center regularly, building up a serious following, which led to their turning professional. The name the Birds came about when they were forced to change their original name, the Thunderbirds, owing to the name of Chris Farlowe's backing band of the period. Their music was hard r&b with a real edge to to it, and was good enough to get them into in a battle-of-the-bands contest held under the aegis of Ready, Steady, Go, the weekly music showcase series. They didn't win, but got a television appearance out of it, on which they were spotted by executives from Decca — a contract followed, resulting in the recording of their first single, "You Don't Love Me," in November of 1964. Early the following spring, they tried again with a second single, "Leaving Here," which they got to perform on television.

The group seemed poised for success. Their bookings placed them ahead of the Pretty Things and the early Jeff Beck group the Tridents, and they were billed with the Who on some of the same gigs. In that company, there seemed no way that they could fail, especially with their sound, a loud, crunchy brand of British rhythm-and-blues based rock, roughly akin to early Who, the Yardbirds, and the Kinks.

Disaster struck the band from a completely unexpected quarter — across the Atlantic — at in the spring of 1965, however. Fresh off of their first U.S. hit came a Los Angeles-based quintet called the Byrds. Their debut single, "Mr. Tambourine Man," released on the newly-established British CBS Records label, was burning up the British charts, and "Leaving Here" by the Birds was left there, on record store shelves (when it was ordered at all). That summer the rival group toured England for the first time, and although the Birds' manager tried to take legal action, it was to no avail — the spellings were different, and both groups' claim to the name were about equally good. A third Decca single in late 1965 brought their relationship with that label to an end. The group then moved to Reaction Records, at first under the name Birds Birds, but their debut single for the label, "Say Those Magic Words," was delayed in release for almost a year, due to a contractual dispute. They also cut a version of Pete Townshend's "Run Run Run" highlighted by Wood's crunchy guitar and McKenzie's punked out vocals, that could've given the Who a run for their money in a chase up the charts by rival singles. And they got one delightfully bizarre film appearance under their belt, performing a Ron Wood/Tony Munroe song, "That's All I Need," in the horror chiller The Deadly Bees, in 1966. Munroe was out of the band not long after, and Wood left in 1967, passing through the line-up of the Jeff Beck Group before joining the reconfigured (Small) Faces with Rod Stewart in 1969.

The Birds were one of the better bands of their era, as evidenced by the large following they built up from their live performances, playing a hard, loud brand of r&b, with polished vocals and a forceful, crunchy guitar sound. They weren't far removed from the Small Faces or the Who in sound, and perhaps they might've fared better, or had a longer run at success, if they hadn't been signed to a label that already had the Small Faces and the Rolling Stones under contract. The name confusion probably killed whatever chance they had of cracking the English charts, as well as eclipsing their musical virtues for posterity.

Northern Soul's Classiest Rarities

Northern Soul's Classiest Rarities

Reviewer:Richie Unterberger, All Music Guide

Kent might actually be underselling itself by titling this collection Northern Soul's Classiest Rarities. That leads listeners to expect yet another anthology of generic mid-tempo mid-'60s American soul singles that have somehow come to be worshiped as choice rarities in England's Northern soul scene. These couple of dozen tracks are from the '60s (and occasionally from the early '70s), they are rare, and they do go for absurdly high prices among Northern soul collectors. Actually, however, these form a more diverse CD than the usual Northern soul anthology, with a good number of decent, lushly produced ballads and harmonized soul-pop efforts along with the expected dancefloor filler. Some of the songs from the early half of the '60s have pleasing traces of doo wop and girl group sounds, too. Listeners are still not going to know who many of these people are unless they're one of those collectors, with some exceptions: there's a 1962 single by Joe Simon, a rarity by the Delfonics, and items by cult soul vocalists Clifford Curry and Bettye Swann. More surprisingly, there are a couple of blue-eyed soul ringers by Charlie Rich (whose "Don't Tear Me Down" is a fine and convincing cut with unexpected chord changes) and Jimmy Seals, the latter the same dude who was half of Seals & Crofts. The singles were done all over America, and although there's an absence of lost classics, it's pleasurable listening. Sometimes it's more than that, as with Karmello Brooks' "Tell Me, Baby," with its jazzy hue and dense but rocking strings; Clifford Curry's "Ain't No Danger," which holds up well when stacked next to the Temptations' tougher, late-'60s cuts; Pat Powdrill's infectious up-tempo "Do It"; and the Joytones' "This Love That I'm Giving You," with its dreamy harmonies and uptown orchestration.

Paul Weller

Paul Weller - Modern Classics: The Greatest Hits

Wrapping up his contractual commitment to Go! Records, Paul Weller delivered Modern Classics, his first compilation of solo material, late in 1998. Modern Classics plays it safe, collecting all of his singles and adding a fine new song, "Brand New Start," which may not at first seem live up to its title, but eventually reveals itself to be a weightier ballad variation of the trad-rock of Heavy Soul. Regrettably, the album is not sequenced in chronological order, but there was a consistency to Weller's solo work that makes the compilation hold together well. And while it certainly confirms that his solo work is easily his most conservative music to date, it also proves that it wasn't slight -- these singles are uniformly solid, whether it's the driving "Into Tomorrow," the rugged soul-pop of "Uh-Huh Oh-Yeh," the passionate "Sunflower," the ersatz ELO tribute "The Changingman," or ballads like "Broken Stones" and "Mermaids." Like Snap! and The Singular Adventures of the Style Council, Modern Classics is a testament to Weller's strength as a singles artist and a terrifically enjoyable listen in its own right.

Destination... Get Down!

Diplomats Of Solid Sound - Destination... Get Down!

Reviewer: Mark Deming, All Music Guide

Iowa City's keepers of the good groove, the Diplomats of Solid Sound are serving up more old-school funk and soul on their third album, Destination...Get Down! The biggest change in the group's attack this time out is the addition of David Basinger on sax, who adds a new level of muscle and atmosphere to the Diplomats' signature sound, but for the most part this is in the same vein as their previous set, Let's Cool One. But while Destination...Get Down! may offer up "more of the same," the truth is that the DOSS are getting better at their Meters meets Booker T. Hammond-fortified grooves, and the group sounds both cool and passionate throughout these 12 instrumental tracks, with keyboard man Nate "Count" Basinger clearly the star of this show. The jazzy undercurrents in the Diplomats' tunes are easier to spot here, without sacrificing the R&B heart of their music, and even without the presence of a full-time bassist on these sessions, they have the ability to get the dancefloor burning in no time flat, without leaving the listeners behind. Fun stuff, and well worth a spin for those who like their soul hot and cool at the same time.

New Directions

New Directions - A Collection Of Blue Eyed British Soul

Reviewer: All Music Guide

Blue-Eyed Soul refers to soul and R&B music performed and sung by white musicians. The term first came into play during the mid-'60s, when acts like the Righteous Brothers had hits with soulful songs like "You Lost That Loving Feeling." Throughout the late '60s, blue-eyed soul thrived, as acts like the Rascals, the Box Tops, Mitch Ryder, Tony Joe White, and Roy Head had a series of hits. During the '70s, blue-eyed soul continued to be successful, as acts like Hall & Oates, Robert Palmer, Average White Band, Boz Scaggs, and David Bowie updated the formula.

Missing Track (10 - The Reaction - That Man)


The Merseybeats

The Merseybeats - I Think Of You (Complete Recordings)

Reviewer: Richie Unterberger, All Music Guide

All 31 songs the Merseybeats ever recorded manage to fit on this single-CD compilation. That includes the A-sides and B-sides of all eight of their 1963-1965 singles, all of the tracks from their sole album that weren't on 45s, the songs from their 1964 On Stage EP (none of which made it onto any other format at the time), and even German versions of "I Think of You" and "It's Love That Really Counts." That doesn't leave much to complain about. Nonetheless, it has to be said that if you have their Edsel best-of, Beat & Ballads, which concentrates on their best singles, you're not missing much, even if it's only half the length. Of the cuts here that aren't on Beat & Ballads, few are memorable, largely encompassing some mediocre group-penned B-sides and drab covers, some of inappropriately pop-oriented tunes. Among this material, really, the only song that's up to the standards of what was selected for Beat & Ballads is a lively rockabilly arrangement of Rodgers & Hammerstein's "Hello, Young Lovers." And the liner notes aren't as good as those for Beat & Ballads, though they do have some comments by Merseybeat-for-a-time John Gustafson. Still, this does have everything, at no more expense than you'll likely incur from a used copy of Beat & Ballads. And much of the best stuff, like "Don't Turn Around," "Milkman," "Don't Let It Happen to Us," "I Stand Accused," and "It's Love That Really Counts," rates among the better unknown (in the U.S., anyway) Merseybeat, with "Last Night" counting as one of the best obscure early British Invasion pop/rockers.

The Young Rascals (1966)

Reviewer: Bruce Eder, All Music Guide

The history of '60s rock is littered with stories of great rock classics — the Savages' album, the Thirteenth Floor Elevators' first two albums, the first two Chocolate Watch Band albums — that should have been better known than they were. The Young Rascals is that rare example of a genuinely great album that got heard and played, and sold and sold. Apart from the presence of a hit ("Good Lovin'") to drive sales, every kid (and his girlfriend) in any aspiring white rock band on the East Coast in 1966 seemingly owned a copy. And it's easy to see why — the Rascals' debut couples a raw garage band sound with compelling white soul more successfully than just about any record since the Beatles' Please Please Me. The band had three powerful singers in Felix Cavaliere, Eddie Brigati, and Gene Cornish, and an attack honed in hundreds of hours of playing dance clubs on Long Island and New York City. The result is a record without a weak moment or a false note anywhere in its 35 minutes: "Do You Feel It" shows them crossing swords stylistically with Smokey Robinson & the Miracles; "Just a Little" and "Like a Rolling Stone" show off their folk-rock chops; and "Slow Down," "Good Lovin'," "Mustang Sally," and "In the Midnight Hour" are all '60s rock & roll classics in these versions. "Like a Rolling Stone," in particular, now seems all the more compelling, pointing the way toward a future that included Hendrix's version of "All Along the Watchtower." The CD is one of Warner Special Products' better sounding reissues, having been remastered by Rhino's Bill Inglot. The original album was on Atlantic, and was one of the label's best-sellers of the mid-'60s.

The Complete Stax-Volt Singles 1959-1968

The Complete Stax-Volt Singles 1959-1968

Reviewer: All Music Guide

At nine discs and 244 tracks, The Complete Stax-Volt Singles: 1959-1968 is far too exhaustive for casual fans, but that's not who the set is designed for — it's made for the collector. Featuring every A-side the label released during those nine years, as well as several B-sides, the set is a definitive portrait of gritty, deep Southern soul. Many of the genre's major names — Otis Redding, Sam & Dave, Carla Thomas, Booker T. & the MG's, William Bell, Rufus Thomas, the Bar-Kays, Albert King — plus many terrific one-shot wonders are showcased in terrific sound and augmented with an in-depth booklet. For any serious soul or rock collector, it's an essential set, since Stax-Volt was not only a musically revolutionary label, its roster was deep with talent, which means much of the music on this collection is first-rate. But if you only want the hits, you'll be better off with a smaller collection, since too much of this set will sound too similar, and sorting through the nine discs will be a monumental task if you only want to hear Otis, Rufus, Carla, and Sam & Dave.

Chris Farlowe

Chris Farlowe - The R&B Years (1965)

Reviewer: Bruce Eder, All Music Guide

Chris Farlowe always seemed destined for great things as a singer -- and based on the company he kept on-stage and the people he worked with in the mid-'60s, he did succeed, at least on that level. Born John Henry Deighton in Islington, North London, in 1940, he reached his early teens just as the skiffle boom was breaking in England, and was inspired by Lonnie Donegan to enter music. His first band was his own John Henry Skiffle Group, where he played guitar as well as sang, but he gave up playing to concentrate on his voice, as he made the switch to rock & roll. He eventually took the name Chris Farlowe, the surname appropriated from American rock & roll vocalist Tal Farlow, and was fronting a group called the Thunderbirds, as Chris Farlowe & the Thunderbirds. They built their reputation as a live act in England and Germany, and slowly switched from rock & roll to R&B during the early years of the '60s. Their debut single, "Air Travel," released in 1962, failed to chart, but the following year, Chris Farlowe & the Thunderbirds (whose ranks included future star guitarist Albert Lee) were signed to EMI's Columbia imprint, through which they issued a series of five singles thru 1966, all of which got enthusiastic critical receptions while generating poor sales. In 1966, with his EMI contract up, Farlowe was snatched up by Andrew Oldham, who knew a thing or two about white Britons who could sing R&B, having signed the Rolling Stones three years earlier, and put him under contract to his new Immediate Records label. Immediate's history with unestablished artists is mostly a story of talent cultivated for future success, but with Farlowe it was different -- he actually became a star on the label, through the label. His luck began to change early on, as he saw a Top 20 chart placement with his cover of the Jagger/Richards song "Think," which the Rolling Stones had introduced as an album track on Aftermath. That summer, he had the biggest hit of his career with his rendition of the Stones' "Out of Time," in a moody and dramatic version orchestrated by Arthur Greenslade, which reached number one on the British charts. Farlowe had enough credibility as a soul singer by then to be asked to appear on the Ready, Steady, Go broadcast of September 16, 1966, a special program featuring visiting American soul legend Otis Redding -- he'd covered Redding's "Mr. Pitiful" on an Immediate EP, and now Farlowe was on stage with Otis (and Eric Burdon), and got featured in two numbers. That was to be his peak year, however. The subsequent single releases on Immediate, including his version of the Stones' "Ride on Baby," failed to match the success of the first two singles, and he last charted for Immediate with "Handbags and Gladrags," written for him by Manfred Mann's Mike d'Abo. The label, always in dire financial straits, tried repackaging his songs several different ways on LP, but after 1967 his recording career was more or less frozen until the label's demise in 1970. After that, Farlowe's story became one of awkward match-ups with certain groups, including the original Colosseum on three albums, and Atomic Rooster (post-Carl Palmer). Following a car accident that left him inactive for two years, he made an attempt at reforming the Thunderbirds in the mid-'70s, and "Out of Time" kept turning up in various reissues, but he saw little new success. Farlowe was rescued from oblivion by his better-known contemporary (and fellow Immediate Records alumnus) Jimmy Page, appearing on the latter's Outrider album in the 1980s, which heralded a BBC appearance that brought him back to center stage in the public consciousness for the first time in two decades. Farlowe followed this up with new albums and touring with various reconstituted '60s and '70s groups, and although he never saw another hit single, his reputation as a live performer was enough to sustain a career -- nor did the release of his Ready, Steady, Go appearance with Otis Redding on videotape and laserdisc exactly hurt his reputation; indeed, that was the first time many Americans appreciated just how serious a following he'd had in England. His recent albums, including The Voice, have gotten respectable reviews, and his Immediate Records legacy was finally getting treated properly in the 21st century, as well. Along with Manfred Mann's Mike d'Abo and Paul Jones, Farlowe remains one of those voices from 1960s England that -- with good reason -- hasn't faded and simply won't disappear.

Paul Weller - Heavy Soul

Like Stanley Road before it, Heavy Soul is more about vibe than songs. There are a few sharply written tracks here and there, but what's important is the rootsy, stripped-down atmosphere. Weller's soul and R&B influences reign supreme on Heavy Soul, yet they are filtered through late-'60s psychedelia, blues-rock and prog-folk, as he takes songs into extended instrumental jams. The band sounds tight, but Weller has suffered a bit of a songwriting slump, which is evidenced by the handful of keepers that form the core of the album. "Up in Suze's Room" is a hazy, folky gem, the soulful apology "I Should Have Been There to Inspire You" is affecting, and "Peacock Suit" is a fine "Changing Man" rewrite, but too much of Heavy Soul is concerned with texture instead of content. That doesn't make it a difficult listen -- in fact, it's quite entertaining while it's playing -- but there isn't much to explore on repeated plays.

The Story of Them

Them - The Story Of Them Featuring Van Morrison

Long-overdue double CD, collecting all but one of the 50 songs (only "Mighty Like a Rose" is missing) the legendary British blues band left behind in the English Decca and American London vaults. The sound is a significant improvement over prior reissues -- really loud, the way it was meant to be heard -- with little touches like "The Story of Them, Pts. 1 & 2" linked together. It doesn't follow chronological order of release, but the order is entertaining, with alternate takes (stereo single mixes, American single edits, etc.) broken up between the two discs. It would have been nice to have had recording dates and personnel, but considering the fact that the band's lineup, apart from Van Morrison and bassist Alan Henderson, seemed to change every month, it's conceivable that any session information would be suspect. And one wishes for a coherent essay on the history of the band to go with the spread of photographs of the different lineups that are reprinted here.

The In Crowd - Ultimate Collection 1958 - 1967

The In Crowd - Ultimate Collection 1958 - 1967

This four-CD set drawn from the Universal Music archives (which include MCA, Chess, Motown, Polydor, etc.) will seem a little strange to come people. That's mostly because it is aimed at re-creating the mod music experience of the mid-'60s in England, which was heavily steeped in a mix of American soul and its British counterpart, white as well as black. Thus, it manages to juxtapose American international soul legends from across the 1950s and 1960s, including Marvin Gaye, the Temptations, and Smokey Robinson & the Miracles (as well as too-often-ignored Motown workhorses like Earl Van Dyke and lesser-known Motown acts like the Elgins), Philadelphia acts like the O'Jays, Northern soul figures such as Tony Clarke, jazzmen like Ramsey Lewis, and New Orleans fixtures such as the Showmen, all alongside a spread of U.K. rockers ranging from superstars like the Who, the legendary Small Faces, and Georgie Fame & the Blue Flames down to fascinating anomalies such as organist Alan Haven, with a smattering of ska performers. There are a lot of rarities, U.S. and British, spread through these 100 songs, not to mention some familiar material heard in new and different contexts -- "I'm the Face," for example, by the Who (working as the High Numbers at the time), comes off more in the vein it was intended to be heard in when it's sandwiched in between tracks by Little Milton and Smokey Robinson & the Miracles. This is the way that, say, the Who's (or the Creation's or the Small Faces') own audiences of the time heard the stuff, and it's not only all worthwhile listening for pure pleasure, but downright educational on that level. It's fun, it's different, the sound is good, and the programming is very generous for the price -- the only drawback is the physical design of the booklet, which is set up horizontally and is printed on flimsy paper.

? and the Mysterians - 96 Tears (1966)

? & the Mysterians were an American garage rock band from the mid 1960s, originating in Saginaw, Michigan. The group is best known for their song "96 Tears", a classic garage rock record from late 1966 which also made #1 on the pop chart. The frontman of the band was Question Mark, real name is believed to be Rudy Martinez, but who later legally changed his name to ?. ? & the Mysterians were the first band to be described as punk rock[1].

?'s somewhat eccentric behavior helped establish the group in the national consciousness for a period. He claimed (and still claims) to be a Martian who lived with dinosaurs in a past life, and he never appears in public without his sunglasses. He also claims that "voices" told him he would still be performing "96 Tears" in the year 10,000. The group named itself after the 1957 Japanese science-fiction film The Mysterians, in which aliens from the destroyed planet Mysteroid arrive to conquer Earth.

Musically, the Mysterians were one of the first major Latino rock groups. The original lineup was Larry Borjas (bass), Borjas' cousin Robert Balderrama (guitar) and Robert Martinez (drums) formed the band in 1962, soon adding Frank Rodriguez (organ) and ?
