ACHTERGRONDINFORMATIE ** BACKGROUND
“The Derroll Adams story begins with growing up in the back seats of cars in 1930s America, listening to early country and old-time music on the radio. The 1950s found him on the West coast where he wrote his celebrated song Portland Town and his life intersected with Pete Seeger, Odetta, Guy Carawan, Woody Guthrie, Will Geer, James Dean, Lord Buckley and eventually Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, with whom he came to Europe in 1957, never to go back.
He became a folk hero in Britain and Europe in the 1960s, appearing in the Bob Dylan Don’t Look Back film and with fans of his zen banjo playing and singing including Donovan, Bert Jansch, Wizz Jones, Billy Connolly, Rod Stewart, Ronnie Lane, Long John Baldry and many more. In 1972 he recorded his best album, Feelin’ Fine, for cult English label Village Thing.
Here it is on CD for the first time, in a triple-fold digipak, expanded with six tracks from another mid ’70s release and with guest musicians including Wizz Jones, Tucker Zimmerman, Roland Van Campenhout and Maggie Holland” (source: pr-sheet).

THE KINKS: FACE TO FACE
“Face to Face” is an album by The Kinks released in 1966. The 2cd DeLuxe edition contains both mono and stereo versions, plus tracks that were not selected for the LP, b-sides of singles taken from the album and alternate takes.
“London was swinging in 1966. The papers said so. England won the World Cup at Wembley. Records by The Stones, The Beatles, and The Who were defining the epoch. The working man had fresh voice in a newly elected Labour government. Yet, Britain was a nation segregated by class and monetary divisions; a country of have’s and have not’s. Documenting the lives of the country’s dominant working classes were a minority of artists. Ken Loach’s ‘Cathy Come Home’ exposed a bleak reality of homelessness and poverty. Televised in the winter, the documentary’s influence could easily have come from The Kinks’ autumn chart hit. “Dead End Street was the epitome to me, of what the Kinks were all about” (…) Source: http://danielrachel.com/writings/kinks-face-to-face/
Andy Ellison was the singer with Mod bands The Silence and the incomparable John’s Children. John’s Children guitarist Marc Bolan later founded Tyrannosaurus Rex and became a glitter star as T Rex.

“Like a fine wine, Joey Gilmore gets better with age. At 72 he’s sounding as good as he did when he was 36. That’s right, I’m happy to say that Joey and I have been friends for exactly 36 years now. When I first moved to Florida in 1980, Joey was – and still is – the king of the local blues scene. As a matter of fact, I saw him one week ago today – just five days after he was released from the hospital – and he was still electrifying the audience as he came down from the stage playing stinging guitar licks while walking amongst them.
(…) ° Being a “Man Of My Word” (D. Walker), when I tell you that on this opening track you’re going to hear some of the best gravely voiced, heartfelt and soulful vocals you’ve ever heard, you can place a bet on it. This is classic and signature Joey Gilmore. Musically, the track’s a monster as well: there’s Joey killing it on lead guitar; intense rhythm, led by Sonny on the organ; ear opening horn arrangements by Yoel; and it all culminates with Ivan closing it out with a delirious sixty second lead guitar highlight. Wow!”
