Blow-Up cd cover

BLOW-UP

“I won’t dwell too much on the film itself other than to say that it’s a seriously groovy piece of mid-sixties filmic psychodrama set in swinging London that, amidst other things, features one or two of the beautiful people, some shots of delightfully quaint mews dwelling houses, and the quite wonderful (in real life too) Marion Park an expanse of green nearby the military barracks in Woolwich Arsenal and wherein the flick’s plot really begins to thicken. There’s also the main starring role of an obsessive photographer, played by David Hemmings, and oh yeah of course there’s all this, which is a pretty nifty soundtrack that features swinging jazz and mod-rock style tuneage that comes and goes, which is really where we come in.

Everyone who has seen “Blow-Up” will know that it’s The Yardbirds, in a recording made with the rare Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page line-up, who provide the film with its exciting live rock group action cameo, and they are seen, and here heard, blazing through an interpretation of the old Tiny Bradshaw via Johnny Burnette Rock ‘N’ Roll Trio chestnut ‘Train Kept-A-Rollin’ – here redesigned as the sharper-titled ‘Stroll On’ – yet that’s only a smidgeon of what’s on offer.”

ALBERT LEE
Albet Lee played with so many artists and bands, not to mention his solo albums, it would take half a dozen specials to try and summarize his career. Here’s an excerpt from his official site:
“He soon found his favoured guitar of choice, the Fender Telecaster, whilst everyone else was playing Gibson Les Pauls and Stratocasters. Albert admitted to feeling like the odd man out as his appreciation for American country artists grew, and he formed the band Country Fever. He began working with Poet & The One Man Band, who later turned into Heads, Hands & Feet when Jerry Donahue and Pat Donaldson (of Country Fever) were replaced by Albert and Chas Hodges. Their self-titled debut album featured the original “Country Boy”, now synonymous with Albert’s trademark picking style. The U.S eventually beckoned, and Albert began doing session work and briefly toured with The Crickets in 1973. He moved to Los Angeles, where he met his idols Phil and Don Everly, and Don invited Albert to play with him and pedal steel legend Buddy Emmons. After working on Don’s second album, Albert left to join Joe Cocker’s band and was replaced by Lindsey Buckingham.”
