ACHTERGRONDINFORMATIE ** BACKGROUND

BRITISH INVASION ALL-STARS

“The British Invasion All-Stars are a 21st century band with a ’60s sound, which isn’t surprising because all of its members are veteran rockers who belonged to various ’60s bands (some more prominent than others). (…) ormed in 2001, the British Invasion All-Stars boasts former-Yardbird Jim McCarty on drums and lead vocals, ex-Procol Harum member Matthew Fisher on electric Hammond organ, and Eddie Phillips (formerly of the Creation) on lead guitar. The three other members are Ray Phillips, of the Nashville Teens fame, on lead vocals, and two ex-members of the Downliners Sect: rhythm guitarist Don Craine and bassist Keith Grand (who contributes background vocals and shares the lead vocals with Phillips and McCarty). The British Invasion All-Stars’ self-titled debut album, which was released on the independent Mooreland Street label in 2002, shows no awareness of the alternative rock sounds of the early 2000s; the band is totally unaffected by any of the punk, new wave, post-punk, pop-metal, or alternative rock that came after the ’60s. From covers of well-known songs by the Yardbirds (“Shapes of Things”) and the Who (“Shakin’ All Over”), to new material, everything on the British Invasion All-Stars’ first album is unapologetically ’60s-minded. The CD boasts several guest musicians who have strong ’60s credentials, including bassist Noel Redding (who was one-third of the Jimi Hendrix Experience) and two ex-members of the Pretty Things: Dick Taylor and Phil May”.

JOHN LEE HOOKER: FROM CLARKSDALE TO HEAVEN
“John Lee Hooker passed away June 21, 2001, depriving the blues world of yet another pivotal artist whose influence will persist throughout the 21st century. From Clarksdale to Heaven, a tribute to Hooker, features 13 tracks—12 written by Hooker and one (“May the Circle Be Unbroken) arranged by him—plus an unreleased Hooker number, “Red House,” which he cut in 1989 as a tribute to Jimi Hendrix. Artists who contributed to Clarksdale include Jack Bruce, Jeff Beck, Andy Fairweather-Low, Mick Taylor, Peter Green/Splinter Group, and Hooker’s daughter, Zakiya. Particularly deep performances are delivered by Beck (“Hobo Blues”); Green (“Crawling King Snake”); Zakiya Hooker (“I Want to Hug You”); and Vince Converse, Leo Lyons, and Ric Lee (“Bad Like Jesse James”). This is a righteous tribute to a rare bluesman.”

SIMON DUPREE & THE BIG SOUND

” ‘Simon Dupree’ was vocalist Derek Shulman ans his brothers Ray and Phil  who started out in music as R&B fanatics and first formed a group in 1964 (…).They were signed to EMI’s Parlophone label, and cut a pair of powerful R&B-style songs in 1966, “I See the Light” and “It Is Finished.” Success on the club scene didn’t necessarily result in serious record sales, however, and the group’s debut, as well as its follow-up records, “Reservations” b/w “You Need a Man” and “Day Time, Night Time” b/w “I’ve Seen It All Before,” didn’t make much of an impression. Their debut album, Without Reservations, containing the first fragmentary examples of the group’s original songwriting, was released in August of 1967. (…) Then, in October of 1967, the group’s management and record label decided to try moving the band in the direction of psychedelia. (…) The result was “Kites,” a song recorded in the early fall of 1967 at Abbey Road. Later, the Shulman brothers formed prog outfit Gentle Giant”.

Album “On Bended Knee”, Rounder Records, with thanks to Airplay Direct
“ (…) but the sides chosen do capture them at particular and sometimes poignant and important places in their careers. In the particular case of  Copeland, his Rounder years paved the way for his well-known excellent late-era recordings for Verve, and it can be convincingly argued that despite the smaller recording budget, his sides for Rounder are even better than those he cut later”.
