ACHTERGRONDINFORMATIE ** BACKGROUND

THE MERSEYS
 

“The Merseys had a big pop/rock hit in the U.K. in 1966 with “Sorrow,” later covered by David Bowie on ‘Pin Ups’ – but never followed up on the promise of this successful debut. They were a spinoff group from The Merseybeats, who were one of the more popular Liverpool bands of the British Invasion although they never managed to land a hit in the United States (UK hits ‘ I Think Of You’, ‘Wishin’ and Hopin’). The Merseybeats split up in 1966, with lead guitarist  Tony Crane and bassist Bill Kinsley forming The Merseys”. (Quoted From / All Rights Reserved: Richie Unterberger, www.allmusic.com ).
RADIO 68 PLAYS: five singles by The Merseys + one as The Crackers plus two by groups led by former Merseybeats member Johnny  Gustafson + originals by The Who and The McCoys + cover by Les Baroques.

NIRVANA

“This  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?” (Quoted From / All Rights Reserved https://dangerousminds.net/comments/meet_the_original_nirvana_a_pioneering_sixties_psychedelic_rock_duo

PAUL BUTTERFIELD BLUES BAND

(…) “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 (…)”.  Quoted From / All Rights Reserved: Len Helsing, © Copyright http://psychedelicbaby.blogspot.com/2013
