Beatfreak! Rare And Obscure British Beat 1964-1968 Vol.1

Posted: 22 Jun 2019 04:54 AM PDT

From the minds behind the Piccadilly Sunshine, Mixed Up Minds, Upside Down, and Electric Sound Show series, Beatfreak! is a journey through the glorious cultural dustbin where beat pop meets paisley rhythm and blues. Prestigious guests include London heavies The Habits; the busker of Baker Street, Gerry Rafferty; a pre-Fleur de Lys Pete Sears and Tago Byers; and a forgotten Bee Gee. A intoxicating marriage of fuzz and flute delivered with disgraceful adolescent abandon -- beware, it's not pretty. Professionally remastered original sound recordings. Includes 20-page full-color booklet with comprehensive background liners and rare archival color photos. Includes rare and obscure tracks by Fingers Lee and the Upperhand, Sons of Fred, The Habits, The Deejays, Ian & the Zodiacs, Casey Jones and the Governors, Roger Young, The Moquettes, The Hinge, The Chasers, The Jensens, Fifth Column, Thursday's Child, Red Squares, The Carpetbaggers, Hedgehoppers Anonymous, Alex Harvey, Trev Gordon, and Greg Hunter..

PJ Proby (Hold Me) EP FR (1963) + Bonus (Hold Me) Stereo

Posted: 21 Jun 2019 11:52 AM PDT

P.J. Proby (born James Marcus Smith, November 6, 1938) is an American
singer, songwriter, and actor. He has also portrayed Elvis Presley and Roy
Orbison in musical theater productions. The stage name P.J. Proby was
suggested by a friend, Sharon Sheeley, who had a boyfriend of that name at
high school.
Proby recorded the singles "Hold Me", "Somewhere", and "Maria". In 2008, he
turned 70 and EMI released the Best of the EMI Years 1961–1972. He still
writes and records on his own independent record label, Select Records, and
performs in the UK in Sixties concerts.Proby was born in Houston, Texas,
United States, and educated at San Marcos Military Academy, Culver Naval
Academy, and Western Military Academy. After graduation he moved to
California to become a film actor and recording artist. Given the stage
name Jett Powers by Hollywood agents Gabey, Lutz, Heller, and Loeb, he took
acting and singing lessons and played small roles in films. Two
singles, "Go, Girl, Go" and "Loud Perfume" appeared on two small
independent record labels. Proby was brought by Sharon Sheeley to audition
at Liberty Records in 1961 and he recorded a number of unsuccessful
singles. In 1962 he began writing songs and recording demos for artists
such as Elvis Presley, Bobby Vee, and Johnny Burnette, who had his final UK
chart success with Proby's "Clown Shoes" (credited to his real name James
Marcus Smith).Proby travelled to London after being introduced to Jack Good
by Sheeley and Jackie DeShannon. He appeared on The Beatles' television
special in 1964. Under Good, Proby had UK top 20 hits in 1964 and 1965
including "Hold Me" (UK Number 3), "Together" (UK Number 8), "Somewhere"
(UK Number 6), and "Maria" (UK Number 8); the latter two songs were both
lifted from the musical West Side Story. He also recorded the Lennon–
McCartney composition "That Means a Lot", a song The Beatles attempted to
record before giving it away.
Proby's UK career lost momentum after controversial live concert
appearances including two trouser-splitting incidents at shows in Croydon
and Luton in January 1965 that scandalized the British press and public and
led to bans on Proby appearances by the ABC theatre chain, its TV namesake
and BBC TV. Minor hits in 1966 were followed by flops, and in March
1968 "It's Your Day Today" gave Proby his last UK chart entry for nearly 30
years.In 1967 Proby scored his only Billboard Hot 100 Top 30 hit with "Niki
Hoeky". In September 1968, he recorded Three Week Hero, released in 1969. A
collection of country-style ballads mixed with blues, it used The New
Yardbirds, later to become Led Zeppelin, as backing band. The album was
produced by Steve Rowland.In 1971, he appeared as Cassio in a rock musical
of Shakespeare's Othello, Catch My Soul. He performed in cabaret and
nightclubs, singing 1960s ballads and rhythm and blues.
In 1977, he appeared as a contestant on the UK television talent show
Opportunity Knocks. He wore an eye-mask and was billed as "The Masked
Signing with Good again in 1977, he portrayed Elvis Presley in Elvis – The
Musical, winning a Best Musical of the Year award.
In 1978, Proby recorded Focus con Proby with the Dutch rock group Focus. He
then returned to singing in clubs, before a change of direction.In 2015, he
performed in a duet with Van Morrison on the album, Duets: Re-working the
Catalogue, singing "Whatever Happened to P.J. Proby"

Garage Girls: Girls In The Garage Vol 1

Posted: 19 Jun 2019 11:34 AM PDT

It was the logical extension of two of the most important and enduring pop
music tributaries of the 1960s -- the girl group sound and the garage band
explosion, respectively -- but the distaff garage rock scene has earned
precious little documentation on record or in history books over the years.
Romulan's long-running Girls in the Garage series has done much to rectify
that oversight, however, compiling an astounding amount of prime crunch --
the first CD volume in the series is also its strongest, adding 11 tracks
to the 16 that made up the original vinyl. Like all garage collections,
there are equal amounts killer and filler, and the joy of discovery is
alone worth the price of admission -- Denise & Co.'s "Boy, What Will You Do
Then," the Belles' "Come Back," and Lydia Marcelle's "The Girl He Needs"
are top-shelf by any standard, however, and the Continental Co-Ets'
blistering instrumental "Melody of Junk" dismisses once and for all any
lingering misconceptions that the girls couldn't rock as hard as the
boys.(allmusic)That girls as hard, good, fast, or whatever can rock, should
have gotten around to the far corners of Middle-earth by now.There are 27
tracks on the CD that prove just that: Girls rock just as well and
sometimes better than the boys.The CD Vol.1 consists of the tracks 1 to 7,
9 to 14 from the ''Girls in the Garage'' LP and the tracks 15 to 27
from ''Girls in the Garage Vol.2'' LP. Track 8 is the only ''CD only''
track here. This is just for information, so that there is no confusion
with the LP releases.You will get here fine Garage rock with often pop
shades in the songs. The Chymes, for example, could go through as an early
version of the Bangles. The Daughters of Eve plays fine early jangle Power
Pop. This collection is highly recommended. (Frank)Ty to Original Uploader.

Freddie And The Dreamers (Sing Along Party) 1965

Posted: 19 Jun 2019 10:09 AM PDT

Freddie and the Dreamers were a British band that had a number of hit
records between May 1963 and November 1965. The band's stage act was
enlivened by the comic antics of the 5-foot-3-inch-tall (1.60m) Freddie
Garrity, who would bounce around the stage with arms and legs flying.
Freddie officially retired from all work in February 2001. He died in
Bangor, North Wales, on 19 May 2006, aged 69.
The band consisted of Freddie Garrity (14 November 1936, Crumpsall,
Manchester – 19 May 2006, Bangor, Gwynedd, North Wales), vocals; Roy
Crewdson (born 29 May 1941, Chorlton-cum-Hardy, Manchester), guitar; Derek
Quinn (born 24 May 1942, Didsbury, Manchester), guitar and harmonica; Peter
Birrell (born 9 May 1941, Wythenshawe, Manchester), bass; and Bernie Dwyer
(11 September 1940, West Didsbury, Manchester – 4 December 2002, Cheadle,
Cheshire), drums.
Although the band was grouped as a part of the Merseybeat sound phenomenon
that the Beatles exploded around the world in the wake of Beatlemania, they
came from Manchester. Prior to becoming a singer, Garrity had worked as a
milkman in Manchester.
They had four Top 10 UK hits: a cover of James Ray's hit "If You Gotta Make
a Fool of Somebody", which reached number 3 in the UK Singles Chart in
mid-1963, "I'm Telling You Now" (number 2 in August), "You Were Made For
Me" (number 3 in November) and a cover of The G-Clefs "I Understand", which
hit the number 5 spot in November 1964.
Session guitarist Big Jim Sullivan played on a couple of the records,"I
Understand", "A Little You", "Thou Shalt Not Steal" and "Just For You" ".
On stage the group performed pre-rehearsed, synchronised wacky dance
routines. They appeared in four British films: What a Crazy World with Joe
Brown, Just for You, Cuckoo Patrol with Kenneth Connor and Victor Maddern
and Every Day's A Holiday (US title Seaside Swingers) with Mike Sarne, Ron
Moody and John Leyton.
Between 1968 and 1973 Garrity and Birrell appeared in the UK ITV children's
show Little Big Time, a zany music/talent/adventure show with audience
The group made a guest appearance in the BBC sitcom Dear John.In the 1980
Rolling Stone History of Rock & Roll, writer Lester Bangs paid tribute (of
a kind) to the group:
Freddie and the Dreamers [had] no masterpiece but a plentitude [sic] of
talentless idiocy and enough persistence to get four albums and one film
soundtrack released ... the Dreamers looked as thuggish as Freddie looked
dippy ... Freddie and the Dreamers represented a triumph of rock as
cretinous swill, and as such should be not only respected, but given their
place in history.
In an interview, Paul McCartney said that the Freddie and the Dreamers
version of "If You Gotta Make A Fool of Somebody" was copied from an
arrangement performed by the Beatles at a show in the Cavern. The Dreamers
released their copied version of the song as a single, leaving the Beatles
uncredited. Because of this incident, the Beatles decided to concentrate on
their own compositions, rather than cover versions. The Beatles later
forgave the Dreamers, and invited them to do a guest appearance in their
1964 Christmas Special.
Freddie and the Dreamers remained a touring band into the 2000s; with a few
different line-ups of newer Dreamers which included: Paul Atack, Ray
Barlow, Brian Byng, Trev Bullock, Tony Brooke, Eamonn Carr, John Denny jr.,
Spencer Montgomery, Alan Mosca, Alan Rose, Gary Rudd, Kev Ryan, Stuart
Simpson, Gary Smith, Giorgio Uccellini, Paul Madden, Ritchie Madden, Hugh
Whitaker, Noel Walsh, and Andy Wells. They appeared with other artists from
the same era, such as Gerry and the Pacemakers, the Troggs and Peter Noone
of Herman's Hermits and the Rockin' Berries. Ritchie Madden, Spencer
Montgomery and Ray Barlow and Stuart Simpson also toured as Herman's
Hermits backing group.
Garrity retired in February 2001, along with his last Dreamers (Nick Foti,
Simon Clarke and Alan Edmundson), due to pulmonary hypertension, and died
on 19 May 2006. Drummer Dwyer died on 4 December 2002 from lung cancer;
Birrell became a taxicab driver. Crewdson now runs Dreamers' Bar in
Tenerife, while Quinn lives in Cheshire and is in the distribution
business. Eamonn Carr heads the New Dreamers touring band. Nick Foti is to
be seen playing all Freddie's hits and other sixties hits as Nico. Simon
Clarke is also a solo act and emigrated to Canada in 2003. Alan Edmondson
is a music teacher.
