 BACKGROUND * ACHTERGRONDINFORMATIE ** 

SONNY LANNDRETH
“ (…) Dit is blues van de bovenste plank, authentiek en tegelijk zonder één cliché. Integendeel, Sandreth & Co. stappen met gemak de wereld van de latinogitaar (“A World Away”) of de C&W (“The High Side”) binnen, terwijl hij op drie elektrische instrumentele nummers complex te keer gaat als een jazzy Jeff Beck.  (…) “ (uittreksel uit mijn bespreking die verschijnt In het volgende nummer van Back to the Roots www.backtotheroots.be ) **  www.sonnylandreth.com

DEXTER SHAW & WOLFTONES
“ (…° Maar kijk, dit is een bijzonder aardige plaat omdat ze ongepolijst, eerlijk en authentiek klinkt. Op geen enkel moment krijg ik dat irriterende toch-niet-weer-een-cover-gevoel, omdat Shaw alles naar zijn fifties ritme en vooral naar zijn retro gitaargeluid zet. “ (uittreksel uit mijn bespreking die verschijnt In het volgende nummer van Back to the Roots www.backtotheroots.be  ** http://www.rhythmbomb.com/dexter-shaw-and-the-wolftones/

SUMMER OF LOVE 40th ANNIVERSARY CONCERT

4-disc set released by “2b1 Multimedia”, USA, 2007, “featuring the best of 10 historic hours” on 2 dvd + 2 cd, free concert held in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park  on 2 Sept. 2007

Voor de tweede aflevering, koos Radio 68:  JIM POST, JEFF JOLLY, THE ROWAN  BROTHERS,  DAN HICKS & THE HOT LICKS, NEW RIDERS OF THE PURPLE SAGE,  BARY MELTON BAND (Barry ‘The Fish’ Melton, co-founder of County Joe & The Fish) , LESTER CHAMBERS (of The Chamber Brothers), LEIGH STEVENS (of BLUE CHEER) with Greg Douglass (from Coutry Weather) and Mario Cipollina (several Bay Area bands,  later Huey & The News) + THE CHARLATANS, CANNED HEAT & FREDDIE ROULETTE, TAJ MAHAL, COUNTRY JOE + more blues from original albums by THE CHARLATANS, COUNTRY WEATHER **

Deze set van 2 dvd’s en 2 cd’s, samen zo’n 200 minuten lang, brengt de hoogtepunten van het ‘free concert’ dat op 2 september 2007 in San Francisco werd gehouden om de veertigste verjaardag van de Summer Of Love te vieren, plus een hoop interviews. De organisatoren hebben hun best gedaan om zoveel mogelijk groepen of toch groepsleden van toen weer op het podium te krijgen. De meeste grepen bestaan echter niet meer, tenzij in een andere, vaak totaal verschillende bezetting. In elk geval hebben we recht op Moby Grape, Jefferson Starhip i.p.v. Jefferson Airplane, Country Joe zonder Fish,  solo-optredens van twéé Blue Cheer-leden (Dickie Peterson en Leigh Stevens), Taj Mahal, Ray Manzarek, New Riders of The Purple Sage, Danny Hicks, enzomeer.
Jammer genoeg, wordt nergens vermeld wie wat speelt en evenmin wie nu precies deel uitmaakt van deze of gene groep. Een paar optredens lijken me overbodig en zelfs hinderlijk, bijvoorbeeld Squid Vicious.
Maar goed, het was een free concert en een deel van de oude garde muzikanten was toch komen opdagen.

THE DUKES OF HAMBURG: GERMANY’s NEWEST HTMAKERS

Our second  selection from “Germany’s Newest Hitmakers” .
“The cover and the title of their latest album are, well… a cover of The Rolling Stones’ first US release ‘England’s Newest Hitmakers’.  And so is the music. ‘Pastiche’ fits better, but this pastiche sounds really convincing. This German band of mixed German-Californian origin plays pop and R&B the way the early “R&B combos” like The Yardbirds and The Stones used to do:  energetically, raw, without any compromise. And it sounds bloody good! Radio 68 plays several tracks from that album and adds music that inspired them” (Eddy Bonte) Thanks to The Dukes for the provided sounds!

“The DUKES OF HAMBURG are more than just a group – they are a way of life. “A way of life that has captured the imagination of the nation´s teenagers, and made them one of the most sought after groups in Beatdom. For the Dukes have their fingers on the pulse of the basic premise of “pop” music success – that its public buys sound, and the sound is what they give you with this their seventh album; a raw, exiting basic approach to Rhythm and Blues blended with their five own explosive characters. In the twenty years since the Dukes embarked on their pop career, they have not only chalked up major chart successes, but smashed attendance records on tours the length and breadth of the country. They have emerged as five well rounded intelligent talents, who will journey successfully far beyond the realms of pop music. And in this album there are fourteen good reasons why.*Andrew Loog Oldham”. (Source:  https://www.timeforaction.de/shop/the-dukes-of-hamburg/germanys-newest-hit-makers).
