MY GENERATION New Format

THE SHOW 
A new 60 minute episode of My Generation followed by the previous show, totalling two hours of all the sounds and the voices that shaped the 60s. Each show includes a special highlighting one artist, release, topic or trend.

SPECIAL NEW SHOW:DAVY O’LIST :
If you ever wondered who shaped that innovative sound on the first LP of The Nice (The Thoughts Of Emerlist Davjack, Immediate, 1967) and the brilliant single taken from that album, the answer is here: in David O’List’s new solo album “Second Thoughts”. Davy calls it the suquel to the First Thoughts, those of Emerlist Davjack. Listen to snippets of the exclusive  Radio 68 interview with Davy O’List.
Lest you forget: Davy O’List was instrumental (!) in shaping the guitar sound of The Attak, played in P.P. Arnold’s band, depped for Syd Barrett in The Pink Floyd, helped launch that band called Roxy Music. It’s been a long time coming, but “Second Thoughts” has arrived.

DAVY O’LIST and PP ARNOLD are playing the Summer of 66 Fest in Windsor on Sat. 23 July https://www.ontrackforsummer.co.uk/summer-of-66/

SPECIAL REPEATED SHOW STEVE ELLIS 

STEVE ELLIS Best Of Days cover

When The Love Affair scored a monster hit with “Everlasting Lover”, much of the impact was due to the voice of 16-year old lead-singer Steve Ellis. That Love Affair didn’t last too long and the Ellisless line-up (though they made a fine album) proved that there was no real life for the band without Steve’s soulful voice. At any rate, Steve Ellis continued to compose, to sing and to record  (solo or with bands, such as Ellis and The 69 Crew). He is still touring now. In 2004, he went into the studio again to record an album with the help of friends Paul Weller (Jam, Style Council) and Roger Daltrey. The album “Best Of Days” eventually appeared in 2008 and is now re-released  by Angel Air.

“No surprise to find Paul Weller (mod champion) featured and Steve’s old friend Roger Daltrey weighing in on ‘Nu Clear Blues’ with a great harmonica part. It’s (for me) songs like Steve’s ‘Little One’ and the title track ‘Best Of Days’ that stand out, the latter being genuinely uplifting. Elsewhere minor hit ‘El Doomo’ gets a reworking, again to great effect. Overall a class album that rewards and deserves multiple listens” (SMART)

 SPECIAL NEW SHOWKIM SIMMONDS & SHEMEKIA COPELAND

KIM SIMMONDS
It’s simple: Kim Simmonds IS Savoy Brown. Has been for ages, ever since pillars like John O’Leary (harmonica) or Chris Youlden left the band. On this release, his 45th in some 50 years, Mr. Simmonds sings and plays the guitar and the harmonica. He also wrote all 13 songs. Some tunes are average, but Simmonds never does anything below standard.

“I just received the newest release, The Devil To Pay, from Kim Simmonds and Savoy Brown and I must say it’s really hot! I have been a Kim Simmonds/Savoy Brown fan since high school and I’ve seen band changes both good and bad. Kim’s dedication to keep rocking after 50 years and 45 albums is amazing and a testament to someone who loves what they are doing. Opening with  Ain’t Got Nobody, Simmonds leads right into a masterful guitar intro” (,http://www.bmansbluesreport.com/2015/10/ruf-records-artist-kim-simmonds-and.html

SHEMEKIA COPELAND
When I first saw her perform live on the main stage at Cognac’s Blues Passion festival, I was not impressed at all and my thoughts wondered off to Johnny Copeland, that brilliant blues guitarist. But that was then and this is now:  “at her most charismati, performing blues, roots rock and Amerivana with power and authority, nuance and shade (…)” .

SPECIAL REPEATED SHOW: MARIANNE FAITHFULL + BLUE CHEVYS, MY BABY

MARIANNE FAITHFULL Rich Kid Blues

ABOUT “RICH KID BLUES”
“So folks, in your possession at this very moment is a classic, a record surely to have been overlooked by even some of the most avid 70’s rock enthusiasts. In 1971 a barely-breathing Marianne Faithfull picked herself off the pavement and produced one of rock & roll’s most heartbreaking records. (…) Three years had passed since the release of “Sister Morphine” and Marianne Faithfull was now a junkie living on the streets of London, this is when Mike Leander found her to produce the sessions that would become “Masques”. Leander had worked with Faithfull on her 60’s Decca records and, after learning of her current situation, sought her out to have her come try her hand at some Folk-Rock compositions. The album was recorded in 1971 at Trident Studios but was shelved following it’s completion and wouldn’t see the light of day until thirteen years later when it was released as “Rich Kid Blues” (with a new track-order) following Marianne’s resurgence after the release of Broken English.

RADIO 68 PLAYS Marianne Faithfull (albums Rich Kid Blues, Strange Weather) plus some artists covered on RICH KID BLUES: Bob Dylan, Dr. John, Doc Pomus and Terry Reid. Doc Pomus lead us to Elvis and an alternate version of Pomus’ “Mess Of Blues”
