Clive Robin Sarstedt (° 1944) recorded under a number of names, such as Clive Sands, Wes Sands, Clive Sarstedt and Robin Sarstedt. He was only sixteen when Joe Meek produced his first record. At that time, Sarstedt had Jeff Beck and Richie Blackmore backing him.
In the mid-sixties, he joined a British Group that was huge in Sweden: The Deejays. Later, he would secure a contract with America major RCA and release three solo albums.
As Robin Sarstedt, he would eventually hit the top of the charts with ‘My Resistance Is Low’ in the seventies. His fame would continue after that in Continental Europe.
As Robin Sarstedt, he released a solo album on Angel Air Records in 2016. He lives in Alemeria, Spain, where he still performs and is now working on a new album.
His brother Richard aka Eden Kane was a huge star in pre-Beatles Britain. His brother Peter is a world-famous song-writer who scored world-wide with ‘Where Do You Go To My Lovely?’. The Sarstedts are in the Guiness Book Of Records as the only three brothers to make the top of the charts in their own right.
A retrospective album of the Deejays was released by RPM
RADIO 68 spoke to Robin Sarstedt and you can hear snippets of this EXCLUSIVE RADIO 68 INTERVIEW in this show.

In 1966, Testament Records released an album in their “Masters of Modern Blues” series entitled “Floyd Jones —Eddie Taylor.” Floyd Jones sang and played guitar with the powerhouse accompaniment of Otis Spann on piano, Big Walter Horton on harmonica, Fred Below on drums, and Eddie Taylor on guitar. Every one of those musicians was a world-class master. Eddie Taylor’s guitar work was the secret ingredient that fuelled blues singer Jimmy Reed’s great success for many years. Otis Spann was the pianist in Muddy Waters’ classic bands, and many consider him to be the finest blues pianist of all. Big Walter Horton was, along with Sonny Boy Williamson II and Little Walter, one of the finest blues harmonica masters of all time. Drummer Fred Below played on nearly all of Little Walter’s hits and was perhaps the most in-demand session drummer of his time.
That’s the company Floyd Jones kept, yet today he is nearly forgotten. Floyd Jones and this blues ensemble demonstrate the brilliance of the golden era of Chicago’s electric blues in the ‘50s and ‘60s. These artists not only brought new life to the blues, but were the key inspiration for the Rolling Stones, Yardbirds, Animals, Cream, Fleetwood Mac and John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers in England, and the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, Johnny Winter and Canned Heat in America.
