BACKGROUND * ACHTERGRONDINFORMATIE **
JOHNNY HALLYDAY feat. The Small Faces and Peter Frampton
The desire to catch the fast-moving spirit of the times lies at the very heart of this, arguably Johnny Hallyday’s most memorable and certainly most atypical album (untitled, but knows as “Rivière” or “le bandeau”).
Originally released on Philips in 1969, Hallyday’s 14th long-player stands apart from the rest of his discography for a whole raft of reasons. Produced by Glyn Johns and with arrangements by regular writers Mick Jones and Tommy Brown, who also contribute six of the songs, it features the last ever recordings of the soon-to-split Small Faces in the company of Peter Frampton. Steve Marriott and Ronnie Lane pen three songs, Amen (aka “That Man” from The Small Faces album “In The Beginning”), Réclamation and and Regarde Pour Moi. In a matter of months, “Réclamation” and “Regarde pour moi” were re-recorded for Humble Pie’s debut album As Safe As Yesterday Is (as “Bang” and “What You Will” respectively, both credited to Marriott only on the Humble Pie album).
Mick Jones played in Nero and The Gladiators and performed in Paris alongside Vince Taylor and His Playboys before being recruited by Hallyday for his “orchestra”. In the early seventies, Mick Jones would join Spooky Tooth and become really famous with Foreigner. Right from the opening of the anthemic Riviere… Ouvre Ton Lit, the album captures the spectacle of Hallyday caught in the head-spin of the late 60s and rocking a distinctly Anglophile blend of psychedelia, hard rock and blues. (…) as it stands, there’s already more than enough here for connoisseurs of Hallyday, The Small Faces and flamboyantly-styled late 60s exotica.

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 a student of the great master of classical guitar, Henrique Pinto, and produced several artists such as Mariah Carey (Butterfly’s remix, 1997), Jimmy Cliff, Toquinho and Ivan Lins. Being a literary author also, he wrote several poetry books and biographies of famous catholic figures. Nevertheless, music is his passion, especially the blues, a passion born from listening to great American idols from the 1930s to the 1970s, e.g. Robert Johnson, Son House, Willie Brown, Sonny Boy Williamson, Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf. To this, Betho Ieesus adds a social content that exposes an unfair and violent Brazil, a far cry from the soccer, carnival & beautiful women cliché. For instance, “Blues do Nunca Mais” reminds us of the necessity to always fight the wrong and the evil. “Edu Blues” tells the story of a young man who was beaten to death by bike thieves on his way to visit his girlfriend. “Maria Eduarda do Brasil’ is an homage to thirteen-year old Maria Edarda, who died of a stray bullet in Rio de Janeiro on 30 March 2017. Betho is a bold and fearless critic of his country’s politics and poverty in the best spirit of the blues”. Check him out: http://www.numberonemusic.com/bethoieesus
SHEL TALMY: PLANET MOD
“Chances are The Kinks and The Who wouldn’t have made it big without producer Shel Talmy. His productions are usually labelled as “mod”, but he is one of the true BEAT MUSIC producers (“rock” didn’t exist). Unsurprisingly, Talmy also produced soul and R&B artists – if he heard or could insert a beat, Shel Talmy would do it without hesitation. In a few years’ time, The Creation, The Who, The Kinks and John Lee Hooker would appear on his roster. But Talmy also produced many more groups who met with less success (The Creation) or no response from the record buyers whatsoever. They are all great tracks, though” (Eddy Bonte)
RADIO 68 PLAYS the entire “Mod Planet” CD, both in My Generation and Blueside.
“Back in the sixties, producers had to be able to think outside the box, as they were hamstrung by what is now regarded as basic equipment. By being able to innovate, some producers were able to make groundbreaking recordings with what is now regarded as basic equipment. This included George Martin, Phil Spector, Joe Meek, Jimmy Miller and Jack Nitzsche. To that list the name Shel Talmy can be added, as he belongs in such illustrious company. After all, Shel Talmy wasn’t just a producer, he was also a songwriter and talent spotter. However, first and foremost Shel Talmy is remembered as a pioneering producer who worked with some of the biggest names in British music. His innovative approach to production transformed many groups, and made stars of The Kinks and The Who, who went on to become two of the biggest names in British musical history. They’re just two of the hundreds of bands and artists who were produced by Shel Talmy during the most successful chapter in his musical career”.
