Thai Beat A Go-Go, Vol. 2 - Groovy 60's Sounds from the Land of Smile!

Review by Subliminal Sounds:
"If you dug volume 1 of Thai Beat A Go-Go, you'll go crazy over the new release in the Thai Beat A Go-Go series! Incredible and ultra rare recordings from Thailand in the 1960s. The amazing Thai Beat A Go Go vol 2, concentrates on exotic female pop and rock vocal numbers, beat, a go-go, psych and some very weird tracks, extreme sensuality and emotions, surreal and groovy, all with a totally otherworldly Thai flavor. Experience the blossoming Bangkok night club scene with the exotic bar and lounge go-go bands! There is a lot of work and effort behind these comps and they have taken a long time to compile. Records with Thai 60s-70s rock/pop a-go-go bands are incredible hard, if not impossible, to find as there is no Thai tradition of saving native artifacts from the 1960s."

Thai Beat A Go-Go, Vol. 1

Review by Subliminal Sounds!
"If you dug the Cambodian Rocks comps, you’ll go crazy over the new Thai Beat A Go-Go series! Incredible and ultra rare recordings from Thailand in the 1960s. Records with Thai 60s rock bands are incredible hard, if not impossible, to find as there is no Thai tradition of saving native artifacts from the 1960s. There is a lot of work and effort behind these comps and they have taken a long time to compile.The amazing Thai Beat A Go Go vol 1, which concentrates on red hot Thai curry rock n roll, includes cosmic instro surf bands, mad garage/beat bands, mystic go-go organ/wild guitar rave-ups, exotic female singers, extreme sensuality and emotions, surreal and groovy, all with a totally otherworldly Thai flavor. Experience the blossoming Bangkok night club scene with the exotic bar and lounge go-go bands! These recordings have a sound that's completely inexplicable despite the use of standard rock instrumentation and song structures combining a fascinating and primal version of rock n roll, surf, r 'n' b- sometimes all in one song."

James Brown and His Famous Flames-Please, Please, Please

James Brown and His Famous Flames

Review by William Ruhlmann, All Music Guide
Though James Brown and His Famous
Flames had scored an R&B Top 10 hit in 1956 with "Please, Please, Please," and Brown's next nine singles for Federal Records flopped until "Try Me," his third single of 1958, scored. That was when King Records (Federal's parent label) assembled this, Brown's debut album, out of some of those singles sessions. You can hear the sound of a group and its enthusiastic singer looking for a hit, sometimes in the rock & roll of "Chonnie-On-Chon" (1957) or the 1956 B-side "I Feel That Old Feeling Coming On," sometimes by remaking "Please, Please, Please" under another name, such as "I Don't Know" (1956), sometimes by tackling Coasters-like novelty material such as "That Dood It" (1958), sometimes by aping the smooth Sam Cooke, as on the 1958 B-side "That's When I Lost My Heart," and once by rewriting "My Bonnie (Lies Over The Ocean)" as the 1958 B-side "Baby Cries Over The Ocean." Only the two hits were really memorable, but the album presented the sound of a major star-to-be in search of his sound.

1. Please Please Please
2. Chonnie-On-Chon
3. Hold My Baby's Hand
4. I Feel That Old Feeling Coming On
5. Just Won't Do Right
6. Baby Cries Over The Ocean
7. I Don't Know
8. Tell Me What I Did Wrong
9. Try Me
10. That Dood It
11. Begging Begging
12. I Walked Alone
13. No No No No
14. That's When I Lost My Heart
15. Let's Make It
16. Love Or A Game

Northern Soul Connoisseurs

Northern Soul Connoisseurs

Review by Amazon.co.uk
Another week, another northern soul compilation. Ho hum. Thankfully, Northern Soul Connoisseurs is anything but a routine collection. Following on from the superb Motown Connoisseurs, this 18 tracker is once again compiled by eminent northern DJ Richard Searling--and what a selection. As well as a clutch of celebrated classics, including the scene's ultimate anthem, Frank Wilson's "Do I Love You (Indeed I Do)", there's a smattering of highly sought after rarities. The previously unreleased Motown cut "He Who Picks A Rose" by Jimmy Ruffin a number one sound on the scene, so its inclusion is an especially timely masterstroke. Other Motor City marvels include The Supremes jaw-droppingly stupendous "Stormy" and the CD debut of Earl Van Dyke's instrumental mod fave "6 X 6". More familiar perhaps, but equally welcome are Terry Callier's "Look At Me Now", Edwin Starr's "Back Street", Tony Clarke's "Landslide" and The Originals stampeding floor stomper "Suspicion". In short, there's not a single dud track and with its deft mix of the rare and the renowned, Northern Soul Connoisseurs is essential for fervent collectors and northern novices alike. --Chris King

The Spirit of '67- Paul Revere and the Raiders

Paul Revere & The Raiders-

Review by William Ruhlmann, All Music Guide

The Spirit of '67, Paul Revere and the Raiders' third gold-selling, Top Ten album to be released in 1966, marked the triumph of the group's in-house writing team of lead singer Mark Lindsay, Paul Revere, and producer Terry Melcher. "Hungry," the Top Ten follow-up to "Kicks," was written, like the earlier hit, by Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil, but Lindsay-Revere-Melcher then hit the Top 40 with "The Great Airplane Strike" and the Top Ten with "Good Thing." (Actually, Revere was not a writer on "Good Thing," as subsequent releases indicated.) Those hits anchored this collection, which was filled out by showcases for bassist Phil Volk and drummer Mark Smith (guitarist Drake Levin had been replaced by Jim Valley), plus some secondary material by the group's leaders. As usual, they were listening closely to their peers, and much of the material had the twangy guitar-rock sound common to 1966, though some of the experimental eclecticism that would lead to the elaborate productions of 1967's Sgt. Pepper psychedelic era was also apparent in songs like "Oh! To Be a Man" and "Undecided Man" (the latter a near-copy of the Beatles' "Eleanor Rigby"). This stylistic trend-following did not bode well for the future, but for the moment Paul Revere and the Raiders were riding high. The CD reissue on Sundazed adds three bonus cuts, including the 45-single version of "The Great Airplane Strike," and an alternate version of "Hungry."

1. Good Thing - (featuring Mark)
2. All About Her - (featuring Mark)
3. In My Community - (featuring Fang)

12. Bad Girl, (You're A) - (reissue only, featuring Mark)
13. Hungry - (reissue only, alternate version, featuring Mark)
14. Great Airplane Strike, The - (mono, reissue only, featuring Mark)

The Troggs - Cellophane/Mixed Bag

Review from Alex, Ohio @ Amazon.com

First I want to start this review by saying this is original releases, nothing re-done here. This two-fer is the 3rd and 4th albums by the Troggs, released in 1967 and 1968 respectively. Some of the songs on both albums are in Stereo, some are in mono. 24 great songs.

The Cellophane album is (for the most part) 3 guitars and drums pure rock, occasional flute. pretty basic for 1967, but not EVERY group would go psychedelic in 1966-67. The only ones that even resemble flower power or Psychedelic are the last 3-4 songs on the album. One of those songs being the top 40 hit "Love Is All Around" besides the song just mentioned, There is a melodic song or two on here, "Its Showing" is one of them.

The first few songs are pretty basic pop/rock, except "Butterflies And Bees" which has a modern jazz/pop sound. a great song and a change for the mostly raw and grungy 60s rock Sound the Troggs are known for.

Is this album good? yes, its one of their best. highlights on this album, "Little Red Donkey", "Butterflies And Bees", "All of The Time", "Somewhere My Girl Is Waiting", "My Lady", and of course "Love Is All Around". Was this the Troggs idea of, "All You Need Is Love"? or a "boy loves girl" song, maybe a little of both.

Now, the album Mixed Bag is another story, it still has the Troggs signature of the basic rock/pop sound, but there is more psychedlic songs on this album, it was 1968 after all.

The first song "Surprise, Surprise, is very good. One of those hitting the snare and Tom Tom and banging the piano songs. "Say Darlin" is very Troggs sounding in Lyric and music style.

Why wasnt "Purple Shades" a hit in the U.S.? talk about your lost hit single, great song. The Psychedelic songs? thats where "Maybe The Madman" comes in, and maybe a hint of Psychedelic on a few others. I'm wondering why this album is not getting more recognition! is this a Concept album? in a way yes, this is a very good album, maybe even their best. (Their first album from 1966 was great too).

One of the songs on this album called "Off The Record" is some Tom foolery in the studio, its fun. Another melodic song on here is "Theres something about you". No hit singles on here, from America that is. Probably a UK hit or two on here. The highlights are, Surprise,Surprise, Say Darlin, Purple Shades, Heads Or Tails, Hip Hip Hooray, Maybe The Madman", We Waited For Someone.

Get it now, these sort of releases dont always wait around to be bought.

...I don't know how these albums didnt get re-released sooner, maybe they were, I never saw them till I saw this 2-fer CD release. Buy it.

The Standells - Dirty Water/Why Pick on Me (1966)

The Standells were a 1960s rock and roll band from Los Angeles, California who, like The Seeds, exemplified the garage rock style.

The band was formed in 1962 by guitarist Tony Valentino and organist Larry Tamblyn. The Standells' first hit single was "Dirty Water," which reached #11 on the Billboard charts on June 11, 1966.

Other hits included "Sometimes Good Guys Don't Wear White," "Why Pick On Me," "Riot On Sunset Strip" (about the 1966 riots resulting from police attacks on hippies), and "Try It."

Singer/drummer Dick Dodd, who sang the lead on "Dirty Water", is a former Mouseketeer, and singer/keyboardist Larry Tamblyn is the brother of actor Russ Tamblyn and uncle of Amber Tamblyn, star of "Joan of Arcadia". The group appeared in several low budget films of the 1960s, including "Get Yourself a College Girl" and "Riot on Sunset Strip". Lowell George, who would go on to play with Little Feat, briefly played guitar in the Standells prior to their breakup in 1968.

The Standells also made an appearance on the 1964-1966 television sitcom The Munsters in the episode "Far Out Munster". The band was an integral part of the show, and performed the songs "Come On and Ringo" and The Beatles' "I Want to Hold Your Hand."

Despite the lyrics of "Dirty Water", which states, "Boston, you're my home." The Standells are not from Massachusetts. The song was written by their producer Ed Cobb. "Dirty Water" is played after every home victory by the Boston Red Sox and Boston Bruins.

All of the original members are back together, and recently performed at the second game of the World Series at Fenway Park.

In 1999 several band members got together for a live show at the Cavestomp festival, and their performance was subsequently released as an album called "Ban This!"

Reviewer: Mike Reed (USA) - See all my reviews
Obviously,the band's 1966 landmark 'Dirty Water' lp,with their 'Why Pick On Me' album tagged on,this must-have 2-lp's-on one disc release.Great move,Big Beat!Just a couple of noteworthy cuts are their sole hit,of course "Dirty Water",the Stone's "Paint It Black" and "Sometimes Good Guys Don't Wear Black".Total of 19 tracks.Enjoy.

The Who - My Generation (Deluxe Edition) (2-CD) (1964-65) (@256)

Review from amazon.com

It's kind of odd that the Who's first album would be the last to be reissued in deluxe fashion, but, given the prominent role the late John Entwistle plays on it (his instrumental 'The Ox' was and is a sonic marvel), it's kind of fitting, too. But the real reason it took so long for the Who camp to release this is that they added so much to it! Disc one presents the original album mixed in stereo for the first time by original producer Shel Talmy, plus single sides like 'Bald Headed Woman' and Daddy Rolling Stone.' Disc Two is a collector's dream, with more loads of first-time stereo-in fact, 28 out of the 30 tracks here are in stereo! Previously unreleased, full-length versions of 'The Good's Gone' and 'I Don't Mind,' an unreleased instrumental version of 'My Generation' and an unspeakably rare, French EP-only alternate version of 'Anyway, Anyhow, Anywhere' the highlights. Three sets of liner notes analyze.

Laurel Aitken - Godfather Of Ska

Godfather Of Ska Volume 3 - 1963-1966

LAUREL AITKEN (1927 - 2005)
The Godfather of Ska.
Laurel Aitken, who has died in Leicester aged 78, was a key figure in the development of Jamaican music from the form of calypso known as mento through to reggae. He was a particular favourite of British skinheads who embraced ska, a variant of boogie and American R'n'B with a strongly accented upbeat, which also shaped the mod, rude boy and two-tone movements; bands such as the Specials, Bad Manners and Madness drew much of their inspiration from the style.
Ska had developed from the sound systems which dominated Jamaican popular music from the mid-1950s, replacing dance bands. They were often set up outside bars and liquor stores, and increasingly competed in volume and strength - 30,000 watt bass speakers were not unknown. The brand of New Orleans boogie and R'n'B they played was soon emulated by live bands, but with the guitar part often stressed on the upbeat in imitation of the banjo line in mento. Over this background, the lyrics initially concentrated on producing a feelgood, party atmosphere, but gradually gave way, with the rise of reggae and the Ras Tafari movement, to nationalist and religious themes.
Lorenzo Aitken was born of mixed Cuban and Jamaican ancestry on April 22nd 1927 in Havana, Cuba, one of six children (his brother was the singer and guitarist Bobby Aitken). The family emigrated to Jamaica, his father's homeland, in 1938 and young Laurel was singing calypso for tourists by the mid-1940s, often for the Jamaican Tourist Board.
At 15, he entered a talent contest at Kingston's Ambassador Theatre and began his career singing at clubs around the capital. His first records, "Roll, Jordan, Roll" and "Boogie Rock", appeared on the Caribbean Recording Company owned by Stanley Motta, a garage owner and electrical supplier, and were later reissued by the Kalypso label; they showed the influence of shuffle and boogie on traditional mento.
In 1958 he scored his first great hit with "Boogie In My Bones" and "Little Sheila", a double A-side produced by Chris Blackwell, the founder of Island Records (it was later to be the label's first release in Britain). Aitken and Blackwell were the only Jamaican elements of the record, though; the backing was provided by a group of white Canadian session musicians. Even so, it was #1 in the Jamaican hit parade for 11 weeks and stayed in the charts for more than a year. He followed them up with a number of other hits, and appeared regularly at the Glass Bucket Club and before sound systems, but in 1960 decided to join the growing exodus of Jamaicans for Britain. There he flew the Blue Beat flag with a number of recordings for that record label, which dealt exclusively in Jamaican music for a British audience.
Aitken was industrious during the 1960s, releasing more than two dozen records on the Rio label alone, as well as working for Ska Beat and Dice, and writing for artists on the Nu Beat Label (which paid his child support money after Rio went bust). He moved, too, from his own party numbers to more reggae-tinged songs, such as "Haile Selassie", "Woppi King" and "Fire In Me Wire". His lament for the increasing cost of prostitutes, "Pussy Price", was later rewritten by the Beat as "Ranking Full Stop". He attracted an increasing audience amongst young white skinheads: "Skinhead Train" was specifically aimed at this fanbase.
But with the rise of rocksteady and then of pure reggae in the 1970s, and particularly with Bob Marley's domination of Jamaican music, Aitken's style began to look increasingly old-fashioned. He faded from view, stopped recording and moved to Leicester. But he never entirely abandoned performance, and could still draw audiences of enthusiasts. When the two-tone revival of the late 1970s began, Aitken, along with Prince Buster, was revered as a pioneer, and he recorded "Rudi Got Married", which became, in 1981, his only British chart hit. He began touring again during the 1980s and appeared with David Bowie in the film Absolute Beginners in 1986.
UB40 covered his "Guilty", which he had released under the pseudonym Tiger in 1969, on their album "Labour Of Love". "Live At Club Ska" was released last year, but Aitken can be heard to best advantage on the Reggae Retro release "The Pioneer Of Jamaican Music", which includes such rarities as "Nebuchanezzar", "Aitken's Boogie" and "Baba Kill Me Goat".
In 2003 he was hospitalised with double pneumonia, but recovered better than expected and returned to performing. His last concert was in January 2005. Aitken, the Godfather of Ska, was felled by a heart attack six months later.

Los Bravos - Dame Un Poco de Amor
Did you guys miss me? Well, I'm back!

Richie Unterberger, All Music Guide

In 1966, this Spanish quintet became one of the very few rock groups from a non-English speaking country to have an international smash with "Black Is Black," which got to number four in the U.S. and number two in the U.K. Lead singer Mike Kogel's overwrought, pinched vocals sounded so much like Gene Pitney that many listeners assumed that "Black Is Black" was a Pitney single, and the strong resemblance remained intact throughout Los Bravos' career, both in the singing and arrangements. Indeed, with their brassy pop/rock songs and production, which sounded about halfway between New York mid-'60s pop-soul and Jay & the Americans, Los Bravos sounded far more like a mainstream American pop/rock group than a Spanish or British one. Most of their records were sung in English, and although they never made the American Top 20 again, they were far more popular in Europe, even placing another single in the British Top 20 in late 1966 with "I Don't Care."

Hi Kelly. =)

UK reissue of the underappreciated British Invasion act's 1965 release.

Of all the original British Invasion groups, perhaps none are as underappreciated in the United States as the Pretty Things. Featuring the hoarse vocals of Mick Jagger-lookalike Phil May and the stinging leads of guitarist Dick Taylor (who actually played in early versions of the Rolling Stones with Jagger and Keith Richards), the Pretties recorded a clutch of raunchy R&B rockers in the mid-'60s that offer a punkier, rawer version of the early Stones sound. Their first two albums, as well as a brace of fine major and minor British hits (of which "Don't Bring Me Down" and "Honey I Need" were the biggest), feature first-rate original material and covers, and remain the group's most exciting and influential recordings. Unfortunately, the band remained virtually unknown to American audiences, most of whom would first hear "Don't Bring Me Down" on David Bowie's Pin Ups album (which also included a version of the Pretties' "Rosalyn").
After their initial run of success, the group took a sharp left turn into psychedelia with the orchestrated album Emotions (1967), impressive singles that owed more to Pink Floyd than Bo Diddley, and, most significantly, S.F. Sorrow (1968). The first rock opera, S.F. Sorrow was a major influence on Pete Townshend, who released his much more successful opera, Tommy, with the Who the following year. Founding member Taylor left shortly after S.F. Sorrow, and the group continued to record progressive rock and hard rock with less impressive results through the mid-'70s, although Parachute (1970) was named album of the year by Rolling Stone. The group reunited sporadically for occasional gigs and recordings in their early R&B vein before officially reforming to release Rage...Before Beauty in 1999. ~ Richie Unterberger, All Music Guide

The band's second album (released Dec. 1965) has not only been remastered from original session tapes, so the group sound like their amps are practically right in your lap, but it's also been expanded to 18 songs with the addition of tracks cut for singles and EP releases from the same sessions. That's enough to recommend it even to casual fans -- this is now a record that's just a few notches short of Rolling Stones level in the charisma department and pretty tough any way you want to look at it. On "Rainin' in My Heart," they sound exactly like the Stones from the same era, missing only the little harmonica flourish that might have been added on the break. The notes go into the history of the group during this period in delightful detail, and the histories of various songs, most particularly "L.S.D.," which, amazingly, was cut as a demo and never re-done for release, just put out that way. In their good moments here, the Pretty Things approach Rolling Stones territory, and even in their off moments they're flying at the same level as the Kinks' album tracks. The real enhancement, alas, only concerns those fans with CD-ROM drives (PC Windows 3.1 or later, minimum 486 66Mhz or Mac 68040 or better, running system 7.1 or later) -- they get to see the Pretty Things playing the 100 Club in London from 1965, looking wilder and scruffier than the Stones or almost any other benchmark band.

The Kinks - Kinks (1964)

Reviewed by Hobart Arms, (Louisville, KY), from amazon.com

The Kinks' explosive debut album is a great album but don't expect the legendary Davies tunesmithing. Instead, this album is far closer to something like the Rolling Stones' England's Newest Hitmakers album: a rollicking collection of R&B covers that comprised much of the Kinks' early stage/club sets. This was the M.O. for most of these groups like the Kinks, the Stones, the Animals, etc. where they would go into the studio with maybe a few originals proffered to the producer but ultimately they would choose the most explosive R&B covers of Chuck Berry and the Chess crew and other popular hits that had wound their way into stage routines; maybe a single would catch on as a minor hit. These albums and the groups were meant to be throwaways: make an exciting record that would sell until the next product went on the shelves. Kinks is no exception. It features the usual slew of Chuck Berry/Chicago R&B covers but what Shel Talmy hadn't counted on was Ray Davies. Davies brought "You Really Got Me" with him and this was to become the first of many trademark hits for the Kinks. Mind you the covers and the hit single were not all that was offered on this album. There was also the obligatory slow "dance" number "Stop Your Sobbin'". Overall, I would recommend this album based on its importance in the canon of one of the greatest rock bands from one of the greatest decades in popular music. Further more, this album showcases the creative powerhouse of the Brothers Davies with their cohorts Avery and Quaiff in their embryonic form, a year before they would begin to take the world on lyrical trips as perhaps the most British of the British invasion bands. My advice would be to snag this album and put it on a cd changer with England's Newest Hitmakers, an early Manfred Mann album, an early Animals album, and The Yardbird's For Your Love. This will take you back to the days in 1964 London when you had to go to the clubs to see the grit and soul of the British Invasion...the R&B bands that lacked much of the contrived polish of the pop bands.

Beau Brummels - Introducing the Beau Brummels (1965)

from Lawrance M. Bernabo at Amazon.com

The Beau Brummels were probably the first folk-rock group, given that this stellar debut album came out in 1965 before the Byrds (the obvious candidate) ever hit the charts. Because of their name a lot of Americans thought the Beau Bummels were an English import, which was an easy mistake given that they were one of the few American groups to make any headway against the British Invasion. The band was centered around guitarist/songwriter Ron Elliott, who wrote 10 of the original 12 tracks on this first album, and singer Sal Valentino, who might have the best forgotten voice of the Sixties. The producer on "Introducing the Beau Brummels" was Sly Stewart, better known to the world as Sly Stone, which another reason this is one of the better debut albums of the early Sixties. The best songs are "Laugh Laugh" (Top 20), "Still in Love With You Baby," and "Just a Little" (Top 10), with their great harmonies and catchy melodies. The attempts at more straightforward rock 'n' roll are not as strong, but the moody "They'll Make You Cry" is good as are the imitation Beatles songs "I Would Be Happy" and "Stick Like Glue." This CD reissue adds a pair of bonus tracks: a demo of "Just a Little" and the single "Good Time Music." I know it is a minority position, but I like the sound of the Beau Brummels better than the Byrds. For that matter, I like their songs better too. Unfortunately, this first effort was followed by lesser albums. Still, if you picked up this one instead of one of their greatest hits collections you are not necessarily getting the worst of the deal.

The MOD Generation

The MOD Generation-

Reviewer:Bruce Eder, All Music Guide
Clean Living Under Difficult Circumstances is an amazingly fine (and fun) collection of mid- to late-'60s appropriate U.K. rock & roll — amazing because it succeeds despite the fact that neither the Who nor the Move, the two bands most closely associated with mod culture, are represented among its 18 songs. On the other hand, the makers have reached out to some less familiar and less often heard songs even on the best-known bands here, and the result is a quirky, clever, often surprising body of music. The Small Faces, who were very closely associated with the mods, are present, but not with one of their soft psychedelic hits — rather, they're represented by "Get Yourself Together," a deceptively defiant piece of songwriting, filled with crunchy guitar, hot drum fills, and lots of attitude. And it's sandwiched between Action's white hot "I'll Keep on Holding On" and Carnaby's crunchy, searing "Jump and Dance," with the Kinks' feedback-laden "I Need You" as the chaser. John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers' "I'm Your Witchdoctor" always showed a surprising stylistic flourish, for a group that was often too studied and practiced for its own good, and Chris Farlowe showed himself a more than competent soul shouter (with Albert Lee handling the guitar fills) on "Treat Her Good." "Michael (The Lover)" by Geno Washington & the Ram Jam Band should have been a transatlantic soul hit, and Jimmy James & the Vagabonds show their most authentically soulful side on "This Heart of Mine." P.P. Arnold had no problems with authenticity, being American born and raised, and "If You See What I Mean" is a great showcase for her voice. Jess Roden never had a better showcase for his singing than "Emergency 999" by the Alan Bown Set, which belatedly became a Northern Soul standard — David Bowie also had to wait a long time after "I Dig Everything" to find an audience. Smoke's "We Can Take It" is almost as catchy as their one actual hit, "My Friend Jack," and seems to define the youthful defiance of the mods. "Circles" by Les Fleur de Lys decked out in flashy lead guitar by sessionman Jimmy Page, is actually a more ambitious rendition of the song than the Who's original version. And the Clique do an amazingly good job of putting over a song with the impossible title of "We Didn't Kiss We Didn't Love but Now We Do," mostly by energetic repetition of the central riff with some sense of purpose. "Baby Don't You Do It," which later became an important part of the Who's sets, gets energized as a screaming rocker by the Poets, while the Spectres, soon to metamorphose into Status Quo, are pretty impressive in this company with "Neighbour, Neighbour." And Timebox brings an offbeat jazz coloration to these surroundings with "Soul Sauce," which recalls the early work of Manfred Mann.

Small Faces - BBC Sessions

The Small Faces - BBC Sessions (UK 1965-1968)

The Decca years

They signed a management contract with impresario Don Arden and they were in turn signed to Decca Records for recording. They released a string of classic high-energy mod/soul singles on the label.

Their debut single was 1965's "What'cha Gonna Do About It", a minor hit. The follow-up, "I've Got Mine", failed to chart. Winston was ousted, replaced by the more experienced Ian McLagan (ex-Artwoods) and they returned to the charts with "Sha-La-La-La-Lee", a major hit in England. Their first album, Small Faces was a considerable success. They rapidly rose in popularity with each chart success, became regulars on British pop TV shows, and toured incessantly up and down the country. Their popularity peaked in August 1966 when "All Or Nothing" hit the top of the UK charts, which proved to be their only Number One.

But by 1966, despite being one of the highest earning live acts in the country and scoring several Top 40 hits, the band had almost nothing to show for their efforts. After a messy confrontation with the notorious Arden (who tried to face down the boys' parents by claiming that the whole band were addicted to heroin) they broke with both Arden and Decca.

Mod Scene Volume 1

The Mod Scene (1962-1968)

This 25-song CD is much more than just an excursion into the farther reaches of English Decca Records' vaults — it's also a de facto tour of the playlists of some of England's hottest mod clubs of the mid-/late '60s; hardly a sound on this collection ever made it anywhere near a chart listing, anywhere in the U.K. (much less the U.S.A.), but a lot of what is here did get picked up locally in London among the mods that made up the audiences of most of these bands.
Considering how badly England's Decca Records fared in the middle-late 1960's (apart from the Rolling Stones, the Small Faces, and the Moody Blues) in signing really solid acts, this is an astonishingly good collection of soul-influenced, mod-oriented singles from the company's vaults.
A few of the acts included, such as the Small Faces, Tom Jones, St. Louis Union, Chris Farlowe, and the Amen Corner, made some kind of splash on the charts, but most of the musicians here got their chance on these single sides, failed to find success, and disappeared into the mist of musical history.

The CD jumps headfirst into the kind of hard-rocking, intense soul numbers that were played to death in London' mod clubs, even if they never scraped even the lower reaches of the charts. The sound on these singles tells you right away why most of these groups were never going to make it as world-class recording acts, being too raw and direct — without the distinctive hooks to get more than a listen from any radio deejays. By themselves, the Ronnie Jones track, coupled with those by Tom Jones, Steve Aldo, Graham Gouldman, Poets, the Eyes of Blue, and the Quik, justify the cost of this $20 import.

The sound is excellent throughout, and it's also reassuring on some level to learn from the notes that Decca is digging so deeply into its vaults that these acts are nearly as obscure to the people producing this compilation as they are to us.

The Paramounts - White shades of R&B

Reviewed by Patrick Earley (Edmond, Oklahoma USA), from amazon.com

f you like early R&B music mixed with a bit of rock and roll twist, you've come to the right place. The best way I can describe the Paramounts sound is basically the Dave Clark Five on a good day meets Otis Redding lite. The singing of Gary Brooker here is what really makes this thing go. His piano playing isn't bad either. As for Robin Trower, who looks like he's 12 years old in some of the photos in this, his guitar is nowhere to be found except for the last song on here called "Freedom". They let the kid loose on this song to do a little soloing along with some nice organ work for a bluesy song that's way different than anything on here. Besides this song though, this is a vocal album all the way. As for the songs: Their first single was a decent version of Poison Ivy. They do a killer version of "Little Bitty Pretty One" and "A Certain Girl" which was the B-side to this, that I remember Warren Zevon later covered. I also liked Jackie de Shannon's "Blue Ribbons". But I liked the B-side even better, "Cuttin' In" which has been covered by many blues and R&B artists over the years including the hot new blues talent Sean Costello. There's a lot of covers here, mainly because Brooker hadn't figured out yet that there was money in songwriting. But Brooker credits his good friend Guy Stevens and his extensive collection of obscure R&B records that he used to listen to and then perform live at the local club the Shades. Of course Stevens later went on to become the most legendary producer in rock music history. The Paramounts were one of the first white bands to perform R&B on stage. Even before the Stones got a hold of it. It's not great R&B, I mean it's white guys doing black music. But they don't embarass themselves either, like the very white Pat Boone did back then attempting to do this stuff. I'm just filing this one in P next to my Procol Harum as a reminder that everybody had to start somewhere. For Brooker, Wilson, Trower and Co. this was a good beginning.

The Redskins

The Redskins - Neither Washington Nor Moscow

This group of socialist skinheads released this stirring, if strident, mix of R&B, punk, ska and swing-a-billy in 1986. They broke the mould with a completely unique style of music, keeping the Punk ethos and fusing it with classic Soul of Motown and elements of The Clash and The Jam. Choice cuts (and leftist recruitment slogans) include "It Can Be Done," "Kick Over the Statues," "The Power is Yours" and "Lean On Me." Yep, that's a still from the famed Soviet film Battleship Potemkin on the cover!
