PART 2. PART 3. Billy J. Early inthe merging of the Liverpool vocalist, Billy J. Kramer, with the Manchester group, the Dakotas, was among Brian Epstein's most inspired moves. It led to a succession of hit records, including three 1s, and several songs that have become golden oldies and are as familiar today as there were in the s.

CD 1 01 - Billy J. RART 3. PART 4. For a group that really only scored one major international hit, the Easybeats' songwriting team -- Harry Vanda and George Young -- were very busy bees indeed in the studio in the late '60s. All but one of the songs on this track compilation are taken from sessions between late and late that were unreleased at the LP) five come from an album that was canned at the last minute.
Apparently there were about 20 more outtakes where that came from. Don't pay any mind to the ridiculous claim in the sleeve note that "had all the material been released in the sequence and quantity it was created, then the Easybeats' impact might have been far more notable and we might today be comparing their albums alongside Rubber Soul, Aftermath, and other rock milestones. The cheeriness, in fact, verges on childish and sickly sweet in places.
It's not bad. In fact, it's occasionally pretty good; it's just not incredibly significant. By far the best track is "Mr. The album was released on October 10, It was later reissued by Repertoire Records and included nine more tracks. Track listing. The Easybeats - Friends Originally released inFriends, The Easybeats' last album, was a curiously half-baked and deflated affair, despite some interesting moments. The Australian group's trademark peppiness gave way to a world-weary tone, perhaps as a result of their roller-coaster ride through near-Beatles-like fame in their native land and limited success elsewhere.
Apparently much of this collection was actually half-finished demos, which accounts for the fairly sparse feel on several tracks. The more pensive tracks, like the title tune, have an oddly compelling, hollow feel of resignation bordering on gloom that starkly contrasts with their more well-known mid-'60s material. The Easybeats - Vigil Exactly what happened to the Easybeats between Friday on My Mind in and this release later in is something of a mystery.
Total Pageviews. Merrell Fankhauser interview by psychedelic baby. Bio by by Mark Deming allmusic. A cult hero with an eclectic body of work, Merrell Fankhauser is a guitarist and songwriter whose repertoire embraces surf music, folk-rock, psychedelia, and several stops in between. Fankhauser was born on December 23,in Louisville, Kentucky.
At the age of 11, he was given a ukulele by his father, who taught him how to play. When he was 14 years old, Fankhauser's family moved to San Luis Obispo, California, and he took a job picking strawberries to earn enough money to buy an electric guitar. Vol. 2 (Vinyl begin practicing with a high-school pal, Bill Dodd, and in they played a talent show as a duo, where they took first place over a surf group called the Impacts.
The Impacts wasted no time asking Fankhauser to join them, and in they cut an album for Del-Fi Records titled Wipe Out no relation to the hit by the Surfaris. The album sold well in California, though the experience left a bitter taste with the bandmembers after they discovered they had signed away their royalties and publishing.
A charming blend of folk-rock and light psychedelia, the Fapardokly album didn't sell well on initial release, but it would later become a sought-after collectors' item among psychedelic fans. Bounty scored a record deal with the Uni label, and they released an album inThings.
While the group toured extensively behind the album and received scattered airplay, poor promotion stalled the album's sales, and by Fankhauser had moved on. The Last AlbumFankhauser had become fascinated with the legend of a lost continent off the coast of Hawaii LP) Mu, and as he teamed up with Jeff Cotton back from his stint with Beefheart on guitar and reed instruments, Larry Willey on bass, and Randy Wilmer on drums, he dubbed the new group Mu.
Mu's self-titled debut album, a beguiling mix of psychedelia, blues, and prog rock, came out in on the independent RTV label, and was reissued by United Artists in as Lemurian Music. By the time the UA edition had appeared, the band had relocated from California to Maui, Hawaii, but while Mu recorded enough material for a second LP, the material went unreleased until the '80s, appearing under the titles End of an Era and The Last Album.
Mu broke up inand Fankhauser started work on his first solo album; The Maui Album was issued inbut in the years following, the guitarist put his focus on performing live in the Hawaiian Islands.
Doctor Fankhauser In the late '70s and early '80s, Fankhauser's work, especially his more psychedelic projects, began attracting a new audience among collectors and crate-diggers, and a number of his albums were reissued in pirate pressings; several would reappear in authorized editions from Sundazed Records.
Another studio set, Message to the Universe, was released the same year, and in Fankhauser became the host of a syndicated television show, California Music, that ran for three seasons.
In Fankhauser issued Tiki Lounge Live, featuring performances by Merrell and his guests from his long-running Im Alive - Various - The British Invasion: The History Of British Rock series Their lifestyle was mystically oriented and ascetic; they followed a vegan diet with no drugs of alcohol. Later that year guitarist Jeff Cotton and drummer Randy Wimer left for the mainland to become Christian ministers. Merrell and Mary Lee retreated further into the depths of jungle continuing their research into the lost civilization of Lemuria.
Occasionally they emerged to play club dates as a duo. Late in they visited L. Popular locally [released on Fankhauser's own Maui Music Company label], it sold 12, copies but was not subsequently re-pressed. Love of a Woman This beautiful song, "Sweet Cherry Wine," is the epitome of peace, love, and '60s understanding, with a sound that is very much like TJ's own version of "Sugar on Sunday. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. In between is some lovely pop music, which one finds after they trip their way through the amazing nine and a half minutes of the title track.
It's a perfect setup to "Sweet Cherry Wine," which is the standout track, the subtle intro exploding into a chorus of the best type of anti-war sentiment: "Let's just get along. Though the song titles might lead you to believe the group dealt in weirdness along the lines of early Mothers of Invention or the Red Krayola, actually the songs were not as strange lyrically as the titles seemed to portend.
The music, though, was fairly Im Alive - Various - The British Invasion: The History Of British Rock for its time, with "Sewer Rat Love Chant" one of the earlier examples of raga-rock to filter down into the garage substratum. The Raik's Progress - Sewer Rat Love Chant Review by Richie Unterberger : Although the Raik's Progress only released one single in their brief career both sides of which are included hereSundazed magically conjured the Sewer Rat Love Chant album out of their legacy by tacking on ten songs from a live performance at the Rainbow Ballroom in Fresno.
It's the studio single, though, that's the highlight of this disc, as "Sewer Rat Love Chant" is an above average piece of early minor-keyed raga-rock and not as lyrically weird as its title indicateswith its flip side, "Why Did You Rob Us, Tank?
The live material actually boasts pretty good sound quality for a concert recording, and is comprised mostly of original material that's more in the standard raw garage mold than their sole Although the performances and vocals are a mite unrefined, most of the tunes aren't bad at all. There are also live versions of both songs from the single, as well as covers of songs by Them, the Byrds, and the Animals that testify to their good taste, though enjoyment of the version of the Byrds' "It's No Use" is compromised by the group's apparent unfamiliarity with all of the words and chord changes.
On the other hand, there must have been few other American groups indeed who covered the non-LP Animals B-side "I'm Going to Change the World," done here with considerable guts. Sewer Rat Love Chant 2.
Baby, Please Don't Go - 5. Don't Need You 6. It's No Use - 7. Call My Name - 8. All Night Long 9. Prisoner of Chillon Sewer Rat Love Chant The Equals - Unequalled They are remembered mostly for their million selling chart-topper, "Baby Come Back". Eddy Grant, then sporting dyed blonde hair, was in the group, and also in the original line-up were the twin brothers Derv and Lincoln Gordon, as well as John Hall and Pat Lloyd.
They first started rehearsing on a council estate at Hornsey Rise, North London in However, in Germany and The Netherlands it went to 1 - a position its re-issue would later reach in the UK. Thus, the racially mixed London group gave President Records their only number one hit. A gold disc was presented to the group in June for a combined one million sales of the record. It was reported in September that all five members of the group had been injured in Germany, when their car ran off an autobahn in a gale.
Bythe Equals began doing dates in Europe as well, and released their first single on President Records. One year later, the single hit number one in Britain as well, and brushed the charts in America. Subsequent singles lacked the immediate punch of "Baby, Come Back," however, and the Equals landed only two more Top Ten hits: "Viva Bobby Joe" and "Black Skin Blue Eyed Boys," the latter an apt message track from one of the few racially mixed bands of the era.
Originally called The Tenabeats, the band formed in Liverpool in Like many of the Liverpool groups, they spent a good deal of their time in Germany, where they recorded two albums sharing the second one with a Newcastle group called Shorty and Them. When Percy left the band in mid '64, they replaced him not with another guitarist, but with two saxophonists, Nick Carver a.
There were further changes in personnel with Hart and Boyce both departing in '65, their places being taken by Mike Kontzle guitarMike Byrne vocals and Terry McCusker drums. Having turned their backs on a major record company Decca in '64, declining to submit to the forces of commercialisation, The Roadrunners eventually called it a day in By rights, if talent were a consideration, The Roadrunners would be remembered alongside such 's British blues outfits as the Rolling Stones, the Animals, and the Pretty Things.
At least, they'd have been doing the kind of profitable concertizing in northern Europe that performers Alexis Korner and even the Downliners Sect were doing in the late 's. They never made it that far, however, despite counting the Beatles among their more outspoken fans Lee Curtis - The Rest.
Lee Curtis - Its Lee Review by Bruce Eder Lee Curtis aka Peter Flannery at his best was a credible white soul singer in the mid's Liverpool mode, and might have been another Dave Berry if he'd had a little luck on the British charts.
One also begins to understand where his limitations manifested themselves — as time went on, Curtis tailored his sound to the tastes of the German audiences that adored him, and pop music, even in the rock 'n' roll era, always has had a fixation on or a tolerance for saxophones that American and British rock 'n' roll outgrew once it evolved past Bill Haley's sound; and courtesy of Dave McShane, there's lots of good reed playing here that would simply have rolled off the ears of most UK listeners, much less US audiences; Chris Dennis tries to do some impressive things on the organ, which is all well and good, but missing, amid the powerful vocals and all of their playing, is the guitar — the lead work here by Paul Pilnick a future member of Stealer's Wheel and Deaf School lacks presence and authority, and it all sounds "off" somehow.
In fairness, Curtis and everyone else throw themselves head-first into "Wooly Bully", and he gets points for having the courage to cover "Mickey's Monkey", even if the beat is slowed down just a touch too much.
Liverpool completists should own this simply as an example of one of the better offshoots of Merseybeat ever to come out of Hamburg, and a showcase for a great, too-little-known singing talent. Lee Curtis - Star-Club Show 3 So what happened to them? Egos got in the way, some of the best talent in the band took off, and Lee Curtis did, indeed, become a star—in Germany.
In lateLiverpudlian Pete Flannery joined some schoolmates who called themselves the Detours nothing to do with the pre-Who combo as lead singer, and adopted the stage name Lee Curtis reversing the name of American rock 'n roller and Phil Spector alumnus Curtis Lee.
The unit didn't last long, as their manager Curtis's brother Joe succeeded in alienating the rest of the band, who promptly quit.
Then, in August of that year, they scored a major coup when Pete Best, fresh from being sacked by the Beatles, and with a serious fandom in Liverpool and Hamburg, took over the drum kit from Bernie Rogers. It was the birth of a rhythm section that would soon take on a life of its own.
Decca Records, which had been offered the Beatles and turned them down in mid, tried to recover its position by signing Curtis and his band.
Two singles were forthcoming, which didn't sell especially well but were pretty powerful stuff, "Little Girl" issued under Curtis' name and "Let's Stomp," the latter considered by many the quintessential non-Beatles Liverpool rock 'n roll track. By the time, Curtis—with encouragement from his manager-brother—was pretty full of himself and managed to lose this band as well. Frank Bowen lead guitar and Best drumsBickerton bassand Waddington rhythm guitar formed The Original All Stars in mid, with Waddington and Bickerton taking over the vocal duties and writing songs together.
The latter two went into production and songwriting full-time, and were responsible for the Rubettes, among other successes, while Best soldiered on as the perennial ex-Beatle.
Meanwhile, Lee Curtis and his brother assembled a new band of All Stars in earlythough not with that level of talent or name recognition—Curtis didn't need it, however, as he'd found a locale where he was almost as big a star as Best, playing the lucrative club circuit in Germany. They had a full-year residency at the Star Club in Hamburg, and Curtis became one of the top rock 'n roll performers in Germany.
He and some version of the All Stars spent four years there, and cut two whole LPs and numerous singles that were only heard in Germany. His career ended only with a car crash that left him hospitalized for weeks, and in he retired to Liverpool. Review by Bruce Eder Back in the day, in Liverpool, there were basically two types of bands — the ones that could pump out the wattage and the beat for audiences in crowded, poorly ventilated clubs that just wanted to dance, and the ones that built their sound on ballads, and could sing with some vocal and, preferably, harmonic sophistication; the latter were often considered ages before Arnold Schwarzenneger made it into a political epithet kind of "girlie" in their appeal, i.
The Beatles were among the few that could do both, and it took time for them to get good at both. Listening to this album, it's easy to understand how Curtis and company could pull that off. And the little bits of harmony singing show that their producers in Germany, as in England, were listening closely to the music of the Beatles.
The 13 songs are all solid, even somewhat sophisticated rock 'n' roll as it was best loved in Hamburg, Germany, with a few slightly elegant and complex for the place, genre and era components woven in.
The Shamrocks were the most succesfull Swedish beat group in Europe during the 60's. They never made it into the Swedish charts, but they were popular in Germany, France, Netherlands and Japan. It all started in when the Shamrocks were founded. In a new lineup still with founding members Bjorn and Ian won a competition: they were elected "The Beatles of Stockholm" and got a recording contract with "Karussell Records".
In they became famous with the Renegades song "Cadillac". The song failed the Swedish charts but made it all over Europe. The band went on tour in Finland, Sweden and in 44 towns in Germany. Inthe band toured again on the continent and played 14 days in "Star Club Hamburg".
Somewhere in the summer of the same year, founding member Jan Granaht guitar quit the band. The remaining band members decided to go on as a trio.
Germany, France and Denmark saw the new Shamrocks shows Im Alive - Various - The British Invasion: The History Of British Rock a lot of visual effects fireworks, smoke-screens, bengal fires etc. InKent Risberg guitar left the band to settle in Bonn, where the band spent a lot of time between their touring on the continent.
Two weeks later, Shamrocks were back on the road again in Germany and France with Jonny Wallin on guitar. Then the band return home to Sweden and after a long due restBjorn and Dieter founding members decided to make one last "thanks and farewell" tour in Germany.
During this tour, Bertil Petterson was playing guitar. The story of the Shamrocks ended at the end of the 60's when the great beat era came to an end. We Gonna Make It 2. A Lonley Man 3. Skinny Minny 4.
