ACHTERGRONDINFORMATIE ** BACKGROUND
SUMMER OF LOVE 40th ANNIVERSARY CONCERT
4-disc set released by “2b1 Multimedia”, USA, 2007, “featuring the best of 10 historic hours” on 2 dvd + 2 cd, free concert held in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park on 2 Sept. 2007
Deze set van 2 dvd’s en 2 cd’s, samen zo’n 200 minuten lang, brengt de hoogtepunten van het ‘free concert’ dat op 2 september 2007 in San Francisco werd gehouden om de veertigste verjaardag van de Summer Of Love te vieren, plus een hoop interviews. De organisatoren hebben hun best gedaan om zoveel mogelijk groepen of toch groepsleden van toen weer op het podium te krijgen. De meeste grepen bestaan echter niet meer, tenzij in een andere, vaak totaal verschillende bezetting. In elk geval hebben we recht op Moby Grape, Jefferson Starhip i.p.v. Jefferson Airplane, Country Joe zonder Fish, solo-optredens van twéé Blue Cheer-leden (Dickie Peterson en Leigh Stevens), Taj Mahal, Ray Manzarek, New Riders of The Purple Sage, Danny Hicks, enzomeer.
Jammer genoeg, wordt nergens vermeld wie wat speelt en evenmin wie nu precies deel uitmaakt van deze of gene groep. Een paar optredens lijken me overbodig en zelfs hinderlijk, bijvoorbeeld Squid Vicious.
Maar goed, het was een free concert en een deel van de oude garde muzikanten was toch komen opdagen.
Voor een eerste uitzending, koos Radio 68 JEFFERSON STARSHIP, MOBY GRAPE, JERRY MILLER (co-founder of MOBY GRAPE) & DAVID LAFLAMME (violinist and founder member of It’s A Beautiful Day), BRIAN AUGER & ALAMEDA ALL STARS (Greg Allman’s band), DICKIE PETERSON (original singer with BLUE CHEER), LYDIA PENSE (original member of COLD BLOOD), TERRY HAGGERTY (co-founder of SONS OF CHAMPLIN) & Phil Perry; Ron THOMPSON (ex-John Lee Hooker etc.).
Voor “Blueside” kozen we, hoe raadt u het, blueswerk van GREG ALLMAN, BRIAN AUGER & TRINITY, BRIAN AUGER & JULIE DRISCOLL, SONS OF CHAMPLIN, BLUE CHEER, MOBY GRAPE. http://www.2b1records.com/summeroflove40th/
BETHEO IEESUS: BLUES FROM BRAZIL
“Born in São Paulo, Brazil. Son of Portuguese immigrants, he studied and graduated in architecture, but it was in music that he found his career – becoming a guitar-player, singer, songwriter and producer. Betho was one of the students of the great master of classical guitar, Henrique Pinto, and produced several artists such as Mariah Carey (Butterfly’s remix, 1997), Jimmy Cliff, Toquinho, Ivan Lins and many others. Being a literary author also, he wrote several poetry books and biographies of famous catholic figures. Despite those many abilities, it is in the music, esspecially in the blues, that his passion lies in, which was born from listening to great American idols from the 1930s to the 1970s, e.g. Robert Johnson, Son House, Willie Brown, Sonny Boy Willianson, Muddy Waters, Howlin Wolf and, though less intensely, Stevie Ray Vaughan, just to mention a few. In his lyrics, Betho brings a social content that exposes an unfair and violent Brazil, far from the soccer, carnival & beautiful women’s cliché. For instance, the music of “Blues do Nunca Mais” reminds us of the necessity to always fight the wrong and the evil and “Edu Blues” tells the story of a young man that was beaten over his bike theft while on his way to visit his girlfriend. Bold, this musician is a fearless critic of his country’s politics and poverty in the best spirit of the blues. Starting with the songs mentioned above, Betho is now recording his newest CD”.

THE DUKES OF HAMBURG: GERMANY’s NEWEST HTMAKERS
“The cover and the title of their latest album are, well… a cover of The Rolling Stones’ first US release ‘England’s Newest Hitmakers’. And so is the music. ‘Pastiche’ fits better, but this pastiche sounds really convincing. This German band of mixed German-Californian origin plays pop and R&B the way the early “R&B combos” like The Yardbirds and The Stones used to do: energetically, raw, without any compromise. And it sounds bloody good! Radio 68 plays several tracks from that album and adds music that inspired them” (Eddy Bonte) Thanks to The Dukes for the provided sounds!
“The DUKES OF HAMBURG are more than just a group – they are a way of life. “A way of life that has captured the imagination of the nation´s teenagers, and made them one of the most sought after groups in Beatdom. For the Dukes have their fingers on the pulse of the basic premise of “pop” music success – that its public buys sound, and the sound is what they give you with this their seventh album; a raw, exiting basic approach to Rhythm and Blues blended with their five own explosive characters. In the twenty years since the Dukes embarked on their pop career, they have not only chalked up major chart successes, but smashed attendance records on tours the length and breadth of the country. They have emerged as five well rounded intelligent talents, who will journey successfully far beyond the realms of pop music. And in this album there are fourteen good reasons why.*Andrew Loog Oldham”. (Source: https://www.timeforaction.de/shop/the-dukes-of-hamburg/germanys-newest-hit-makers).
“Sixties mod-psych band The Creation never made it big (though they were successful in Germany), but are no footnote either. Quite on the contrary: fondly remembered by their fan-base, this was a musically innovating group that brought pop art into practise on stage – easily equalling The Who. Guitarist Eddie Phillips was the first to play the guitar with a violin bow and to use feedback as a creative technique, not a gimmick. The Creation evolved from a band called The Mark Four, who released several singles between 1964 and 1966 and counted one John Dalton (later to join The Kinks) in their ranks. Eddie Phillips and Kenny Picket formed The Creation in 1966 and recruited Bob Garner on bass. Garner had played with Tony Sheridan and The Merseybeats. When Garner leaves the band, Kim Gardner of The Birds steps in. When co-founder Phillips leaves at the end of 1967, his place is taken by another Bird – Ronnie Wood. Regretfully, the story ends in 1968 when Ron Wood joins The Jeff Beck Group”. (Eddy Bonte)
