ACHTERGRONDINFORMATIE ** BACKGROUND

NIRVANA

“This  Nirvana consisted of Irish musician Patrick Campbell-Lyons and Greek multi-instrumentalist Alex Spyropoulos. The pair met in London’s La Giaconda coffee bar in 1965 (a young David Bowie also frequented the place). They hit it off big time and became almost inseparable over the next few years—spending their time together continuously writing songs, performing, and digging the groovy scene of the capital’s swinging sixties nightlife. Campbell-Lyons and Spyropoulos became Nirvana. They were the core around which other sessions musicians did orbit. They signed to Chris Blackwell’s Island Records who released the band’s science-fiction concept album The Story of Simon Simopath in 1967.The band at this point was supplemented by Ray Singer (guitar), Michael Coe (French horn and viola), Brian Henderson (bass), Peter Kester, David Preston, and Patrick Shanahan (drums), and Sylvia A. Schuster (cello). A music press review at the time gave this album four stars and described the LP as “delightful,“tuneful,” “competent,” and “good listening.” While another review asked the prescient question “Nirvana is a rather nice name don’t you think?” (Quoted From / All Rights Reserved https://dangerousminds.net/comments/meet_the_original_nirvana_a_pioneering_sixties_psychedelic_rock_duo

PAUL BUTTERFIELD BLUES BAND

(…) “So anyway, Butterfileld’s Blues Band were formed around harmonica man and lead singer Paul Butterfield, and his guitarist friend Elvin Bishop, persuading some of Howlin’ Wolf’s rhythm section,including drummer Sam Lay, to join them for some live club gigs. It’s said that Paul Rothschild of Elektra records saw them and swiftly signed them on board. These were the first results of a career that lasted until 1971. The bulk of the lead guitar parts on this debut album, however, were played by new recruit Mike Bloomfield, with Billy Davenport substituting for the ailing Sam Lay, but, nonetheless, what they produced back then hinged upon a fairly robust round-up of such classics of the genre (…)”.  Quoted From / All Rights Reserved: Len Helsing, © Copyright http://psychedelicbaby.blogspot.com/2013

 

THE PAPER DOLLS

“The Paper Dolls were one of Britain’s few girl groups of the 1960s. Complete with outrageous wigs, camp stage names and over-the-top outfits, they cut quite a dash on the music scene. The group comprised Tiger (Susie Mathis), Spyder (Pauline Bennett) and Copper (Sue Marshall). Tiger hailed from London, Spyder from Bletchley, Buckinghamshire, and Copper from Northampton. They met at school in Northampton and later studied dance together at the town’s Pitt-Draffen Academy of Dramatic Arts. (…) the group eventually agreed on The Paper Dolls as their stage moniker, and in May 1968, their first single, the Motown-esque Something here in my heart (keeps a-tellin’ me no), was released. It reached number 11 in the UK charts and led to appearances in Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands and Sweden. Its B-side, All the time in the world, has gone on to become a favourite of fans of the Brit girl sound.
Build me up buttercup was lined up as the follow up but was eventually recorded by The Foundations, who took the song to number two in the UK charts in the autumn of 1968. The Foundations scored a second hit with Any old time (you’re lonely and sad), which The Paper Dolls had recorded for their album, Paper Dolls house.
The girls were left to release My life (is in your hands), a danceable number that hadn’t appeared on the album, as their second single. However, both it and a third single, Someday, stalled outside the top 40”.

MIKE BLOOMFIELD:  Bob Dylan, Paul Butterfield Blues Band, Electric Flag, Al Kooper
Living In The Fast Lane: “Living In The Fast Lane” was released in 1981 just after his death and contained material recorded in various places over the years and Record World said in its review then “a fitting testament to his musicianship”. (Quote: www.agelair.co.uk)
BIO “(…) Impressed by his talent, mouth harpist Paul Butterfield invited him to be a member of the Paul Butterfield Blues Band in 1963. Bloomfield, as lead guitarist, helped distill the groundbreaking sound of the band’s first two LP releases, The Paul Butterfield Blues Band (Elektra 7294; 1965) and East-West (Elektra 7315; 1966). (…) Earlier that year, Bloomfield had also played lead guitar on Dylan’s critically acclaimed, Highway 61 Revisited (Columbia 9189; 1965), which featured the hit single, “Like a Rolling Stone”.
Tired of constant touring and wanting to have more creative control, Bloomfield departed the Butterfield band to form the Electric Flag with long-time associate, singer Nick Gravenites. Put off by the massive hype surrounding his new band, he moved on again after playing on one album, A Long Time Comin’ (Columbia 9597; 1968). For a time he seemed content to merely tread water, collaborating with Al Kooper and Stephen Stills on a couple of slapdash studio jam LPs, Super Session (Columbia 9701; 1968) and The Live Adventures of Mike Bloomfield and Al Kooper (Columbia 6; 1969)”.
