BOB GARNER (THE CREATION)
BOB GARNER, bass-player, singer, composer: May 15th 1946 – July 16th 2016
“By this time the group ( = The Mark Four) were in London, represented by the Robert Stigwood agency, but real progress came with a new manager. Tony Stratton-Smith was already handling The Koobas when a mutual friend persuaded him to see the Mark Four. He was impressed and agreed to handle the group on condition a new bassist was found. He suggested Bob Garner, briefly a Merseybeat and latterly a part of the Tony Sheridan group. Garner was accepted and Stratton-Smith’s next move was to find a producer. He brought in Shel Talmy, who had heard the group previously on an early demo of Crazy Country Hop. Since that time Talmy had become a leading independent record producer, working with, amongst others The Kinks and The Who, although he’d recently found his relationship with the latter severed. Talmy was impressed with the Mark Four, signing them to his own Planet label the next day. Within a week they were recording a single, but under a new name – The Creation.”
RADIO 68 PLAYS: The Creation, Eddie Phillips solo, The Merseybeats, Tony Sheridan with The Beatles.
ROBIN BIBI is one of the UK’s top blues/rock guitarists and having paid his dues working with such names as Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, Ben.E.King, The Pretty Things and Helen Shapiro, launched the Robin Bibi Band in the late 90s… The Band’s debut album “BLUE THRASH THERAPY” was released in 1997 and quickly sold out leading to several re-releases. (…). Following Robins live shows in Georgia and Alabama in 2012 and 2014, Robin recorded an EP “BIBI @ MUSCLE SHOALS” at the legendary FAME STUDIOS in Muscle Shoals, Alabama…the studio where legends such as Aretha Franklin , Wilson Pickett, Otis Redding , Clarence Carter and Arthur Conley recorded their biggest hits. (…)
ROBIB BIBI and TONY MARTEN have been working together on an acoustic/electric duo project which features similar material to the band played in a more rootsy intimate style. Robin & Tony have released their debut album “LIVE AT THE RAM JAM” in 2015” Source: http://www.robinbibiband.co.uk/bio.htm
RADIO 68 PLAYS: Muscle Shoals + tracks from Live at the Ram Jam
HARPER’s BIZARRE: THE SINGLES COLLECTION
“Except for their California brethren The Association, no other band of the ’60s better represents the soft pop genre than Harpers Bizarre. Their seamless combination of baroque arrangements and gossamer vocals had few equals then or now, and nowhere is their achievement better illustrated than on the run of singles they recorded for Warner Bros. Records in the late 1960s. (…) the essence of Harpers Bizarre can be found on the 45s, which are all collected here for the first time.
What you’ll hear here is the remarkable refashioning of a four-piece guitar band enamoured with the sounds of the British Invasion into a silky-smooth vocal group supported by the cream of Los Angeles’ studio musician crop. The end result is a sound filled with so much sunshine that you might need to wear sunblock while you listen.
This 26-track deluxe edition includes many original mono single mixes, many of which have been out of circulation since their original release. Also included are all the pre-Harpers Bizarre singles, when the band recorded as The Tikis.
The deluxe, full-colour booklet also includes rare photos and extensive and insightful liner notes by Joe McGasko, the host of WFMU’s “Surface Noise.” (Source: http://www.cherryred.co.uk)
RADIO 68 PLAYS 8 tracks: their early Beatlesesque R&B singles as The Tikis and four examples of their sunshine pop!
BONGO BOY BLUES FROM THE BACKROOM
American indie label Bongo Boy is preparing its fourth volume in the Backroom Blues series. Meanwhile, Radio 68 has chosen a number of tracks from vol. 2. We picked one household name (Yardbirds-founders Top Topham and Jim McCarty) and three more by artists you may not know but do deserve your attention. Radio 68 will come back to the other volumes in due time. Bongo Boy is a rockin’ label and so is much of their blues output.
