ACHTERGRONDINFO *** BACKGROUND INFORMATION
“Three times winners on Opportunity Knocks, British television’s hugely popular talent show of the late 60s, the Casuals subsequently left the UK for Italy, where they became a leading attraction. Alan Taylor (b. Halifax, Yorkshire, England; guitar, bass), Johnny Tebb (b. 1 October 1945, Lincoln, England; organ), Howard Newcombe (b. Lincoln, England; guitar, trumpet) and Robert O’Brien (b. Bridge Of Allan, Central Scotland; drums) were based in Milan for several years before returning to Britain in 1968, when their single, ‘Jesamine’, entered the charts. The song was originally recorded by the Bystanders as ‘When Jesamine Goes’, but the Casuals’ inherently commercial reading coincided with a prevailing trend for emotional ballads. The single ultimately reached number 2, but later releases were less successful and ‘Toy’ (1968), which peaked at number 30, was their only other hit. The Casuals continued to record superior pop: Move leader Roy Wood wrote and produced the polished ‘Caroline’ (1969), but as the decade closed, so their style of music grew increasingly anachronistic”.

Note by Eddy Bonte: The Casuals remained far more popular in Continental Europe, where ‘Toy’ (written by Chris Andrews!) was a greater hit than ‘at home’ (no. 17 in Holland, no. 15 in Belgium). In Italy, they released a single in Italian as ‘The Climate’. Later incarnations of the group were not successful. The Bystanders released eight singles in all, none of which became hits but are well worth listening to.
THE ROLLING STONES: CONFESSIN’ THE BLUES
“In 2016, The Rolling Stones‘ stripped down ‘Blue and Lonesome’ retrenched to the sort of vintage blues songs that had inspired their early discs. Maybe they were preparing their fans for this superb 42-cut reissue of such gritty music. Guitarist Ronnie Wood did the cover art. We find the greats like John Lee Hooker, Howlin’ Wolf and Elmore James, with plenty of tracks from Chicago-based Chess, the leading label in introducing 1950s and ’60s white kids to rock’s roots in the blues (Chess men Chuck Berry and Bo Diddley being prime movers). As the thorough notes remark, “This stuff was primal, authentic, sexy and dirty, perfect for the racing hormones of spotty schoolkids. (…) ”.
