ACHTERGRONDINFORMATIE ** BACKGROUND
PAUL BUTTERFIELD BLUES BAND, 1st ALBUM
(…) So anyway, Butterfileld’s Blues Band were formed around harmonica man and lead singer Paul Butterfield, and his guitarist friend Elvin Bishop, persuading some of Howlin’ Wolf’s rhythm section,including drummer Sam Lay, to join them for some live club gigs. It’s said that Paul Rothschild of Elektra records saw them and swiftly signed them on board. These were the first results of a career that lasted until 1971. The bulk of the lead guitar parts on this debut album, however, were played by new recruit Mike Bloomfield, with Billy Davenport substituting for the ailing Sam Lay, but, nonetheless, what they produced back then hinged upon a fairly robust round-up of such classics of the genre” (…).

Nirvana consisted of Irish musician Patrick Campbell-Lyons and Greek multi-instrumentalist Alex Spyropoulos. The pair met in London’s La Giaconda coffee bar in 1965 (a young David Bowie also frequented the place). They hit it off big time and became almost inseparable over the next few years—spending their time together continuously writing songs, performing, and digging the groovy scene of the capital’s swinging sixties nightlife. Campbell-Lyons and Spyropoulos became Nirvana. They were the core around which other sessions musicians did orbit. They signed to Chris Blackwell’s Island Records who released the band’s science-fiction concept album The Story of Simon Simopath in 1967. The band at this point was supplemented by Ray Singer (guitar), Michael Coe (French horn and viola), Brian Henderson (bass), Peter Kester, David Preston, and Patrick Shanahan (drums), and Sylvia A. Schuster (cello).
A music press review at the time gave this album four stars and described the LP as “delightful,“tuneful,” “competent,” and “good listening.” While another review asked the prescient question “Nirvana is a rather nice name don’t you think?”

THE SAVAGE TREE
My show ‘The Savage Tree’ brings you one hour of rhythm and blues by exploring the roots and branches of Screaming Lord Sutch and his Savages.
With roughly fifty line-ups of The Savages to his name, Screaming Lord Sutch was backed by dozens and dozens of artists – and that’s not counting the many guests on his recordings. Together, they make up the huge and unique Savage Tree. In each show, we take a closer look at the rhythm and blues output by individual Savages and bands counting Savages in their ranks. Some Savages: Vince Taylor, Alex Dmochovski, Carlo Little, Peter Parks, Matthew Fisher, Nicky Hopkins, Alan Clayson, Jim Leverton, Mick Abrahams, Cyril Davies, Geoff Everett, Richie Blackmore, Noel Redding, Neil Christian, Brian Parkinson, Brian Keith aka Brian O’Shea.
Finally, you can listen to the originators and inspirators; the British, American and European youngsters who revived the genre, and those who’ve carried on till the present day.
The Savage Tree was originally broadcast on the revived Radio Sutch from November 2014 till July 2018, when the station closed down.
