“What made the getting good were musical appearances by the British Invasion’s the Dave Clark Five and the Animals, plus the U.S. group the Standells (pre-“Dirty Water”), the jazz stylings of the Jimmy Smith Trio and the mellow of “The Girl from Ipanema” by Stan Getz and Astrud Gilberto. In a story laced with early feminist and sexual-revolution sentiments, former Miss America Mary Ann Mobley plays a songwriting co-ed whose rock tunes appall administrators of staid Wyndham College for Girls” (Quoted from, all rights reserved:

“A curious 1964 hybrid of teen movie musical with pre-feminist overtones as well as a parody of moralistic anti-rock message films, Get Yourself a College Girl (1964) is a must-see due to its strange guest-star cast, who help elevate the formula narrative into a near-surreal ’60s happening. The basic plot follows Mary Ann Mobley’s transition from songwriter (she pens a controversial song about sexually aware college girls) to a controversial figure in the music industry who’s wooed by a song publisher (Chad Everett) and a politician seeking the youth vote”.

SAVOY BROWN: WITCHY FEELIN’ (nieuwe cd, 2017)
“  (…) Simmonds schreef ook dit keer allemaal nieuwe nummers, elf in totaal, en houdt zo zijn droom levend. Hoewel niemand na zo’n parcours nog vernieuwend kan zijn, telt deze plaat niet echt laagtepunten. Onze man opent zelfs sterk met het riffonderbouwde “Why Did You Hoodoo Me”, koppelt Robert Johnson aan country (“Standing In A Doorway”), doet een Chicagoboogie op “Vintage Man”of laat de noten melodisch rollen op het titelnummer. Nooit trapt hij in de val van de bluesrock.. Als stevige blues gepokt en gemazeld in de zwarte muziektaal van de jaren ’60, is dit best een aangename plaat”.  (Alle rechten voorbehouden: uittreksel uit de cd-bespreking van Eddy Bonte voor Back to the Roots magazine)

Ian Gillan is best known as the singer, guitarist and composer with Deep Purple, which he joined in 1969. By that time Ian Gillan had played and sung in a number of groups, most notably in The Javelins (1962-1964, see below) and Episode Six (1965-1969) – where he met Roger Glover. After Deep Purple, Gillan fronted his own band, teamed up with Glover, returned to Mk. X. of Deep Purple, and so further. Have a look at
“The Javelins – a band for whom rock history might have passed by long ago had they not ousted their original singer and offered the job to Ian Gillan. That was back in 1962, and over the next two years this eager new beat combo’s career was much like any other at the time – gigging at youth clubs, moving on to residencies at pubs, winning local talent contests, gaining a few screaming girl fans and even making TV at one stage. What they never did do was get into a recording studio”.
In 2000, The Javelins did go into a studio to record “Raving” (Purple Records, RMP, 2000).
That is not the end of the story, as Ian Gillan recruited his old mates from the original band to record an album drawn from their set-list from… 1963. Typical of the era, it’s a mixture of rock’n’roll, soul, R&B and plain pop. ‘Ian Gillan & The Javelins’ is out on Ear Music. Thanks, V2 Records!

A Beaumont native, Barbara never wanted to be anything but an entertainer. Born January 16, 1942, she started learning her craft on a cheap Arthur Godfrey ukelele and was leading her own regional band before she graduated from high school in 1960. Nicknamed “the black Elvis” by friends, Lynn was nurtured by Clarence “Bon Ton” Garlow, a local bluesman and DJ, Lynn also developed song-writing as well as guitar and vocal chops. (…) The first single, Barbara’s own “You’ll Lose A Good Thing”, topped the R&B charts and raced to #8 on the pop Top Forty in the summer of 1962. She had several additional pop charters that year, in 1963 and in 1964 when the Rolling Stones covered her “Oh Baby (We Got A Good Thing Goin’)”, a modest hit for Lynn though it lasted two months on the charts. (…)In any case, instead of becoming a household name who released an album every year or so, Lynn’s recorded output from 1962 to 1986 is limited to her debut album on Jamie and a 1968 “comeback” effort on Atlantic (“Here Is Barbara Lynn”), source of her last pop chart entry, “This Is The Thanks I Get”, in 1969.
