ACHTERGRONDINFORMATIE ** BACKGROUND
Vince Taylor never made it in the UK or the US, but he was huge in Belgium and France. His singing voice wasn’t anything special, but on stage he was a real phenomenon, a devil all clad in black leather with chains, medals and bracelets, putting on a unique physical stage act that involved rolling on his back. Some of his numerous French gigs were recorded and Big Beat Records put out a cd with seven songs captured at the Paris Olympia on various occasions in 1961, 1965 and 1966. The cd is augmented with two early singles on Parlophone, five tracks on Palette (incl. the unreleased ‘Cold, White and Beautiful’).
Taylor compensated his voice by putting on a show, but also by hiring some of the best UK musicians around. On his Parlophone singles from (1959-1960), Vince Taylor was accompanied by the likes of Brian ‘Licorice’ Locking (bass), Brian Bennett (drums), Tony Sheridan (voc, gtr) and Joe Moretti (gtr). Next, Locking and Bennett moved to Marty Wilde’s backing group, the Wild Cats, which developed into The Krew Cats featuring Big Jim Sullivan on lead. At the end of 1961, Brian Bennett became a Shadow. After a short stint with Adam Faith’s Group The Roulettes, Locking equally joined The Shadows (as both Tony Meehan and Jet Harris had left by that time). Jim Sullivan also lead his own group, The Big Jim Sullivan Combo (one single in 1961), before becoming an in-demand session player who would keep on releasing solo stuff every now and then, such as the LP ‘Sitar Beat’.
RADIO 68 PLAYS tracks from the Big Beat cd ‘Live At The Olympia’, The Shadows feat. Bennett and Locking, The Krew Kats feat. Jim Sullivan, The Big Jim Sullivan Combo (b-side of their only single) and The Beatles feat. Tony Sheridan.
