ACHTERGRONDINFORMATIE ** BACKGROUND

THE SAVAGE TREE show with Matthe Fisher
In this show, our former member of THE SAVAGES is none other than MATTHEW FISHER, him of the mighty organ! After stints with Bill Fury and Peter Jay and the Jaywalkers, Matthew Fisher joined The Savages in 1967. That same year, Gary Brooker asked him to join his new band, Procol Harum. Fisher played on their first three albums, then left and returned on various occasions, while developing a solo career,  AND, surprise, surprise, recording an album with R&B rockers The Downliners Sect in 1993! Fisher also plays on the albums of Screaming Lord Sutch.
Now, you may think that a prog band with a classically-trained keyboard player has no connection with R&B, but they did write and record some blues tunes and would play lengthy versions of them on stage.
So here’s one-time Savage Matthew Fisher playing R&B with The Downliners Sect and Procol Harum.

THE HOLLIES: FOR CERTAIN BECAUSE
When For Certain Because (released as Stop Stop Stop in America) came out in 1966, most pop bands were determined to create music that went deeper than traditional songs about true love and heartache. This development struck a chord with The Hollies, and For Certain Because became the first of three albums that found them at their most innovative and inspiring. Band members Graham Nash, Allan Clarke, and Tony Hicks became adept at composing songs that retained The Hollies’ trademark harmonies and effervescent melodies, but placed them in new surroundings. Like Evolution and Butterfly, which followed shortly after, it was pretty much flawless. Source, All Rights Reserved:

MOBY GRAPE, 1967
To this day Moby Grape’s electrifying debut not only stands the test of time, but heads and shoulders above even their most celebrated contemporaries’ best albums.
The fact that Moby Grape has been lost to the annals of rock music’s history will always be one of its most shameful sins. As a larger rock music community, we are all responsible for this calamity. Moby Grape really had it all: exceptionally talented songwriters, incredible guitar players, a rhythm section on par with any in the world and a unique diversity that spoke volumes in the relatively streamlined San Francisco psychedelic scene of the 1960’s.
