ACHTERGRONDINFORMATIE ** BACKGROUND

SOUL SIDE
Even at a time when blues and soul had become genres on their own – The Supremes do sound quite different from B.B. King –  some artists kept crossing the borders and mixing the ingredients. Albert King is the prototype example, but MAGIC SAM’s album “West Side Soul” from 1967 should be rated as highly. That same year, also white boy Paul Butterfield mixed soul and blues to great effect. Otis Redding kept his chords more on the soul side, but should be noted for his daring interpretations of then current pop (The Rolling Stones’ ‘Satisfaction’) and traditionals, e.g. ‘Mary had A Little Lamb.

KEEF HARTLEY
Keith Hartley was born in Preston, Lancashire. He studied drumming under Lloyd Ryan, who also taught Phil Collins the drum rudiments. His career began as the replacement for Ringo Starr as a drummer for Rory Storm and the Hurricanes, a Liverpool-based band. Subsequently he played and recorded with The Artwoods, then achieved some notability as John Mayall’s drummer (including his role as the only musician, other than Mayall, to play on Mayall’s 1967 “solo” record The Blues Alone). He then formed The Keef Hartley (Big) Band, mixing elements of jazz, blues, and rock and roll; the group played at Woodstock in 1969. They released five albums, including Halfbreed and The Battle of North West Six, characterized by a reviewer for the Vancouver Sun as “an amazing display of virtuosity”. (Source: Wicki) .

THE ROLLING STONES: BLUE & LONESOME
With ‘Blue & Lonesome’, The Rolling Stones ‘have come full circle’. Really? I don’t think so and I’m speaking as a fan. The full circle theory is what the media want us to believe because it sounds so simpatico.

SHOCKING BLUE…and THE MOTIONS

Shocking Blue werd in 1967 opgericht door Robbie van Leeuwen, die naar eigen zeggen bij The Motions aan zijn plafond was gekomen en een groep in de steigers wilde zetten waarmee hij internationaal meer kansen zag. Van Leeuwen rekruteerde de groepsleden uit diverse hoeken van de Haagse beatscene en koos in eerste instantie voor een zanger, Barry Hay, die net The Haigs had verlaten. Uiteindelijk werd Fred de Wilde de zanger en werd er een lp voor Polydor opgenomen. Het album was net als de eerste single “Love is in the air” matig succesvol.
Een jaar later stapte Shocking Blue over naar het pas opgerichte Pink Elephant-label van Dureco. De eerste plaat die op dat label uitkwam, was Lucy Brown is Back in Town. De single deed het aardig in de Top 40. Toen De Wilde halverwege 1968 een oproep kreeg voor militaire dienst, besloot Van Leeuwen dat hij zijn groep wilde vervolledigen met een zangeres. In eerste instantie werd gedacht aan Annet Hesterman, maar zij bleek net een contract met een manager te zijn aangegaan en bedankte. Later was ze nog korte tijd de zangeres van de Groningse Ro-d-Ys. In Loosdrecht stuitten Van Leeuwen en manager Cees van Leeuwen op Mariska Veres, die daar optrad met The Motowns tijdens een feestje van de Golden Earring. Via haar moeder werd het contact gelegd.
