The Animals We Gotta Get Out Of This Place -
The Animals Radio & TV Sessions 1965

The Alan Price Rhythm & Blues Combo, later the Animals, were the premier attraction on the Newcastle-on Tyne live circuit in 1962. They had a real edge combining a tough vocal sound, charismatic stage presence and a rich organ sound. They moved to London two years later, becoming popular on the mod scene and scoring record deals with EMI in the UK and MGM in America. They were the only British Invasion group whose every single released in the UK and in the US was a hit record at the time.

This album comprises 14 recordings never previously released, taken from radio and TV broadcasts on Ready Steady Go, Jazz Club, Shindig and Hullabaloo from the peak year of the Animals’ success of 1965.

The Kinks In Koncert

Outside of the 1967 Kinks' Live At Kelvin Hall LP there hasn't ever been a representative recording of the Kinks earliest brush with fame and their nascent early live rhythm & blues repertoire from 1964-65. That is, until this LP. It wasn't until well into the video years that such things appeared from the vaults of European television, long locked away after their initial airings in 1965. What we have collected here are the audio tracks of shows spaced throughout 1965, when the group was right at the peak of their onstage power - a solid representation of the Kinks at the peak of their popularity in the mid-60s, warts and all. It all adds up to a wonderful reminder of what initially helped make them uproariously famous.

Side One
1. Bye Bye Johnny
2. Louie, Louie
3. You Really Got Me
4. Got Love If You Want It
5. Long Tall Shorty
6. All Day And All Of The Night
7. Hide And Seek

Side Two
1. Well Respected Man
2. Milk Cow Blues
3. Till The End Of The Day
4. I'm A Lover Not A Fighter

7. All Day And All Of The Night

THEM EP

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.

SIDE ONE
BABY PLEASE DON'T GO (Williams)
HERE COMES THE NIGHT (Berns)

SIDE TWO
TURN ON YOUR LOVELIGHT (Malone/Scott)

SOUL IN - Mods Out On The FloorLP

The concentration is there, directed straight downwards, looking at your feet. Eyes encased in dark shades so as not to give the game away. A look of nonchalance on your face that does not betray the hours spent building up to this moment. Ankle twists, fast shuffling, leaning forward and a slight shake of the hips as the music commands you to move.

All over Britain, kids are sat in front of their family televisions watching your every move. Because ‘Ready, Steady Go!’ wasn’t just about the pop stars and the visiting American artists presenting their latest songs. It was a snapshot of what was going on now…what clothes are being worn…new hairstyles…and just as important, new dances.

This album takes you back to those raw and early days when you could Bump, Watusi or Boogie all night long.

SOHO SCENE '64 Jazz Goes Mod

In 1964, live jazz was under threat from the burgeoning demand for rhythm and blues. Club nights were closing and fewer jazz records were being issued. However, real aficionados were congregating in Soho, where clubs like the Flamingo were still playing innovative jazz tunes from America as well as showcasing Britain's top jazz combos. On hot, sweaty nights in dimly lit basement clubs, music really mattered with the cool cat West End audience. Pour yourself a drink, put this record on LOUD and get into the 1960s jazz groove.

Side One
1. Night Talk Directions In Jazz/Johnny Scott
2. The Killers Of W1 Tubby Hayes Big Band
3. Rustic Gait Directions In Jazz/Ronnie Ross
4. Mark 1 Johnny Dankworth
5. Times Two And A Half Bill Le Sage & The New Directions In Jazz Unit

Side Two
1. El Soulo Les McCann
2. Feeling Good Ahmad Jamal
3. Rattlesnake Monty Alexander

Soho Scene ‘63 Jazz Goes Mod

Soho, October 1963. It’s not been a great year for British jazz record releases or jazz sales in general. You only have to look through your copy of ‘Jazz News and Review’ to see the venues listed moving towards R&B.  The Ealing Jazz Club, the Railway Hotel in Wealdstone, the White Hart on the Uxbridge Road are all now hosting R&B nights. They are dancing to American rhythm and blues records at the Disc and at the recently opened Scene Club. Even the National Jazz Festival in Richmond has been infiltrated.
You can still hear jazz though at The Marquee, at Klooks Kleek, at Ronnie’s and at the 100 Club which caters for trad and modern tastes. But the best place to be sweaty and hip is The Flamingo in Wardour Street. Early Saturday evenings at The Mingo mean Modern Jazz both live and on vinyl.
Collected here are several slabs of British quality along with influential American sounds from labels such as Impulse, Atlantic and World Pacific. This album captures the period just as rhythm and blues is emerging as the dominant club sound, forcing clubs like the Flamingo to change their music policy in order to survive.

Side One
1. A Kettle Of Fish Brother Jack McDuff
2. Days Of Wine & Roses The Quartette Trés Bien
3. Blues for Mister Fink Gene Ludwig Organ Trio
4. What Are You Trying To Do To Me Bobby Powell
5. Here Now! Charles Kynard
6. Cleopatras Needle Ronnie Ross
7. Goose Pimples Butch Cornell's Trio
8. How Tony Kinsey

Side Two
1. Hobo Flats Damita Jo
2. Shake A-Plenty Hank Crawford
3. Jack Sax the City Johnny Beecher
4. Hum Drum Blues Elaine Delmar
5. Minerology Chris Columbo Quintet
6. Bowing 707 Johnny Hawksworth Trio
7. For Petie's Sake Jimmy Russell

Aintree Institute Set 1961

This is not a Beatles Live LP. It is an attempt to conjure up the atmosphere of a Beatles show from 1961 by taking the first documented Beatles set list and presenting the songs they sang in the order in which they were performed. In order to enhance the fantasy listening experience, live performances of the music have been used where available.

Drummer John Cochrane of Wump & His Werbles transcribed this list of songs the Beatles played when the two groups performed together at the Aintree Institute sometime in January/February 1961. The date can’t be pinned down to anything more specific than somewhere between the release date of the most recent record the Beatles played that night (The Shirelles Boys issued in January 1961) and the group’s departure for a season at the Top Ten Club in Hamburg at the end of March 1961.

But then again, it may have been at the Lathom Hall in Seaforth...
