ACHTERGRONDINFO *** BACKGROUND INFORMATION
“When the Young family immigrated to Australia from Glasgow in 1963, elder brother and multi-instrumentalist Alex Young chose to remain in the UK. During the early 1960s he worked in Germany with soul band, The Bobby Patrick Big Six where he became friends with The Beatles. On his return to London in 1967, the renamed George Alexander used his connections with the Fab Four to secure a song-writing deal with Apple Publishing. Joining forces with former members of Tony Rivers & The Castaways and named by John Lennon, Alexander’s band Grapefruit found moderate chart success before disbanding in late 1969. Back in May 1968, Alexander had reunited with younger brother George Young, The Easybeats’ rhythm guitarist and half of a song-writing partnership with lead guitarist Harry Vanda and their reunion led to a future collaboration. (…) Like Grapefruit, The Easybeats were on their last legs by late 1969 and so the three song-writers decided to pool resources. Over the next four years, the trio masterminded a cache of superbly crafted recordings, issued under a bewildering number of aliases”.

“Wilfred Gerald “Jackie” Edwards (1938 – 15 August 1992) was a Jamaican musician and songwriter, whose career took in ska, R&B, soul, rocksteady, reggae, and ballads.
Edwards was born in Jamaica, and came to the attention of Chris Blackwell in 1959; when Blackwell set up Island Records in London in 1962, Edwards travelled with him. Edwards worked as a singer and songwriter for Island as well as performing duties such as delivering records. He wrote both “Keep On Running” and “Somebody Help Me”, that became #1 singles in the United Kingdom for The Spencer Davis Group. He continued to work as a recording artist himself, with regular album releases through to the mid 1980s. Much of his later work was produced by Bunny Lee, and he also worked with The Aggrovators. Edwards’ music is published through Fairwood Music (UK) Ltd.
Edwards also worked as a producer, co-producing the 1977 album Move Up Starsky by The Mexicano. He died in August 1992 of a heart attack”.
