PSYCH from NASHVILLE: EARS OF STONE
A peculiar package in more ways than one, Ears of Stone has 20 Nashville-issued tracks from the 1960s that cover such a wide range as to be nearly unclassifiable. (…)ruth be told, almost all of these tracks sound like underfunded demos, yet that’s part of their charm and appeal. Lacking the budget and time to come up with something slicker, the artists do the best with what they’ve got and create some good, unaffected music unbeholden to a set formula, reflecting a modestly creative underbelly of the Nashville scene that’s escaped the history books. Now if only this could be redone with the real liner notes. Source / All Rights Reserved.

In August 1961, South London group The Strangers auditioned successfully for Adam Faith and became his backing band for many years. They were now called The Roulettes. The Strangers could have been big months earlier, when they were given a new song to record, ‘Well I Ask You’. They duly recorded it and made a demo. Regretfully, one Eden Kane also recorded the song and sent it straight to the top of the UK charts… Everyone had forgotten about The Strangers’ demo, but during a conversation I had with Strangers / Roulettes Peter Thorp and Martin Blackwell, the latter suddenly announced that he had found a copy of the demo amongst a stack of old 45s. This is the first-ever broadcast of that demo. Sincere thanks to Peter, Martin and my friend Louis who restored the sound.
