THEM EP SOLD OUT

Three young men from Belfast formed a small group in 1962 called the Gamblers: Billy Harrison (lead guitar), Alan Henderson (bass guitar) and Ronnie Milling (drums). Two other young men from Belfast, Van Morrison (vocalist) and Pat McAuley (organ) had been doing some entertaining for a couple of years. The five young men asked each other 'Who are Them? What are Them?' and before long, Them found Themselves in the world of entertainment with their major debut Baby Please Don't Go reaching high in the best seller charts.

The Spencer Davis Group
Rambling Rose
EP

Probably the main reason for the success of the Spencer Davis Group is the material they choose to perform.
This E.P. contains four of their more popular numbers broadcast in 1965/66.
“My Baby” is sung by Spencer Davis, and was recorded as their release after “Dimples”. However, “I Can't Stand It” was chosen instead.
“Please Do Something” is a soul type number which was originally recorded by Don Covay, who had a big hit in America with “Mercy, Mercy”.

“Keep On Running” the Jackie Edwards number features Stevie on guitar, and is probably his most popular number on stage. On “Rambling Rose”, he is composer, guitarist and vocalist. Each track on the E.P. is completely different in style, and shows the variety of music the Spencer Davis Group perform.

Tall Stories
of the Only Ones with Robert Palmer EP
Palmer Perry Kellie

Underneath Island Records HQ in St. Peter’s Square, Hammersmith lay a compact 24 track studio much favoured by cognescenti on account of its fabulous sound. Unlikely combos of musicians from Steve Winwood to Peter Tosh jammed together there.

One such evening in the summer of 1978 saw John Perry and Mike Kellie of The Only Ones record with Robert Palmer. The Tall Stories track that resulted took Palmer in a new, grittier direction. Kellie’s rock-steady beat aligned with Palmer’s own bass playing and Perry’s melodic guitar brought the sparse loping sound of Free bang up to date.

Sadly record company politics prevented the release of this track and the tapes were mislaid until 2016, when intense sleuthing by Pedro Mercedes turned up a cassette version. Careful tape transfer by Rob Keyloch and remastering by Nick Duckett has polished this performance into a jewel that does all three musicians great credit. The B-side instrumental was cut at the same session.

This record is a fitting tribute to the late Robert Palmer and to Mike Kellie, who sadly died whilst we were working on this release. Kellie told John Perry he was delighted by this record.  He liked the finished product and loved the spontaneity of the session. He recalled the session as inspired and enjoyed recalling times when a high level of inspiration flowed with such ease.

Recorded live at the Memorial Auditorium, Dallas, July 23rd 1967
A ten week tour of the USA supporting Herman’s Hermits was not the Who’s idea of a good way to spend the summer of 1967. “It got us around America” Daltrey would later say “but it did us no good at all.” Many felt that the Who’s performance at the Monterey festival the previous month had been neutered by their having to use borrowed gear: no such problem in Dallas with Keith Moon debuting his customised Premier ‘Pictures Of Lily’ kit bearing the legend “Patent British Exploding Drummer”. Dallas is the only performance to surface from the 1967 US tour thus far. The Who were by now the ultimate superpop singles band and the savage energy and precision of this performance makes up for the distinctly lo-fi nature of the recording. As our anonymous announcer says by way of an introduction “the most explosive group ever to come out of England…the Who!”

THE KINKS EP
TV Session 1965

By the time these tracks were recorded, the Davies brothers were experienced players of R&B. Ray had played guitar with Hamilton King’s Blues Messengers since early 1963, whilst brother Dave’s outfit the Ramrods specialised in more raucous R&B numbers. These performances from their first US tour find the Kinks at the top of their game as an R&B group: four of the songs are sung by Dave with Ray contributing only Got Love If You Want It. Long Tall Shorty is Dave backed by the Shindogs, fiery organ solo courtesy of Billy Preston.

IF I STAY TOO LONG & TRY AND STOP ME are sung by bassist Bob Garner, who switched to vocals in 1967.

WHO - READY STEADY WHO FIVE  EP

Kicking off this EP is a song Pete wrote for The Merseys which turned out so well that The Who nicked it for themselves. This fine version was recorded for the BBC, but inexplicably omitted from The Who BBC Sessions (1999). Listen for the immaculate harmonies and the new vocal refrain (“Last Night”) at the end. Next Brian Mathews brings out Pete Townshend’s more reflective side as they consider the Who’s singles to date.

Flip over the disc for two typically taut performances recorded live at that Who stronghold, the Marquee in Wardour Street. Townshend plays slide with the mike stand at the end of My Generation but before he can total his Stratocaster, a smoke-bomb causes the power to fail. Roger is at the height of his Dippity-Do hair-gel dandy phase, the curly haired Rock God still two years away. Entwistle recreates his bass solo in My Generation with impressive and impassive dexterity. And beaming over all he surveys is Keith Moon, the original Happy Jack, visibly having the time of his life.

It all sounds totally terrific.

GARY FARR & THE T-BONES, LIVE ON RADIO & TV 1965-66 EP

Gary Farr and his ever-changing T-Bones had just three singles and an EP to their name on Columbia in 1964-65. Hear them as a vibrant four-piece on side one of this EP with Vince Whetherall’s guitar driving them through powerful versions of Dylan’s Maggie’s Farm and the soulful Give All She’s Got. The five-piece band are performing the R&B classic Wooly Bully at the Richmond Jazz & Blues fest. Then two tracks from 1966 with perhaps the most interesting line-up featuring the king of trad Chris Barber on trombone with future Nice luminaries Keith Emerson and Lee Jackson. Nice solo on Rock Candy, Keith!

Out of the BUMBLIES came the Merseybeat group the CRYIN’ SHAMES and a hit record PLEASE STAY which reached #26 in the UK charts in March 1966. This was the group that recorded the tracks on side two for French TV a couple of months later, but broke up in the summer of the same year. Paul and Ritchie got a new group together and recorded just one single, SEPTEMBER IN THE RAIN for Decca as PAUL & RITCHIE & THE CRYIN’ SHAMES. This lineup went into the BBC studios in September 1966 to cut the tracks on Side One. And here they are – for the first time in fifty years!

PP ARNOLD - SINGS THE HITS EP

Pat Arnold – Andrew Loog Oldham's "First Lady of Immediate" - came to the UK as a backing singer for Ike & Tina Turner. Mick Jagger encouraged her to stay on in London and go solo: her first backing band became The Nice. Cat Stevens was allegedly so impressed by her version of The First Cut Is The Deepest that he stopped performing the song live.

PP Arnold's most satisfying artistic collaboration was with label-mates the Small Faces. Steve Marriott and Ronnie Lane wrote (If You Think You're) Groovy specifically for PP, and her vocal on Tin Soldier was a crucial part of the song's success. More recently she has sung with Roger Waters, Primal Scream, Ocean Colour Scene and Peter Gabriel.

The tracks on this EP illustrate PP Arnold's ability to interpret a variety of material and showcase her terrific voice. On the Top Gear session she is backed by T.N.T (This 'N' That), whose distinctive sound features ex-Creation Eddie Phillips playing lead guitar parts on bass. Backing vocals are provided by Madeline Bell and Dusty Springfield.
