The Society of Cool!
I´m very much into the old stuff at the moment, like Downliners Sect and early Pretty Things.
Great bands and still going i think. Check out early John Mayall
Apparently, The Yardbirds’ relationship with Williamson did not get off to the best start: “these British want to play the blues so bad,” Williamson once remarked, “and they play the blues so bad!”
That is so true,
saw so many early English groups attempting the blues, not many got it right.
I've got that album, what a great album too
Can anybody tell me about the recent John Mayall? He´ll be in my region in autumn and I wonder if it´s worth going!? One thing´s for sure that I´ll go and see Brian Auger´s Trinity in October!
Yes Pete, the aforementioned bands still going; saw the Pretty things last Autumn and they really set the place on fire!
I've seen him several times and each time i loved it but that was a few years ago, but i think he puts on a great show.
The three singles have been on heavy rotation in the house over the past couple of weeks are:
Come see about me - Choker Campbell's Big Band - Motown
Can't chance a break up - Ike & Tina - Sue
If it's all the same to you babe - Luther Ingram - HIB
BUTTON UP - MODENA
Got this on vinyl today with free cd version of the album also. Only £9.99 from independent record shop in Glasgow.
First listen, quite promising.........
That said they had 'Sharon Jones and The Dap Kings', 'Soul Time' vinyl lp for £14.99. Came home and ordered it from Amazon for £10...happy days.
