ACHTERGRONDINFORMATIE ** BACKGROUND

THE ROLLING STONES: BLUE & LONESOME
With ‘Blue & Lonesome’, The Rolling Stones ‘have come full circle’. Really? I don’t think so and I’m speaking as a fan. The full circle theory is what the media want us to believe because it sounds so simpatico.

SHOCKING BLUE…and THE MOTIONS

Shocking Blue werd in 1967 opgericht door Robbie van Leeuwen, die naar eigen zeggen bij The Motions aan zijn plafond was gekomen en een groep in de steigers wilde zetten waarmee hij internationaal meer kansen zag. Van Leeuwen rekruteerde de groepsleden uit diverse hoeken van de Haagse beatscene en koos in eerste instantie voor een zanger, Barry Hay, die net The Haigs had verlaten. Uiteindelijk werd Fred de Wilde de zanger en werd er een lp voor Polydor opgenomen. Het album was net als de eerste single “Love is in the air” matig succesvol.
Een jaar later stapte Shocking Blue over naar het pas opgerichte Pink Elephant-label van Dureco. De eerste plaat die op dat label uitkwam, was Lucy Brown is Back in Town. De single deed het aardig in de Top 40. Toen De Wilde halverwege 1968 een oproep kreeg voor militaire dienst, besloot Van Leeuwen dat hij zijn groep wilde vervolledigen met een zangeres. In eerste instantie werd gedacht aan Annet Hesterman, maar zij bleek net een contract met een manager te zijn aangegaan en bedankte. Later was ze nog korte tijd de zangeres van de Groningse Ro-d-Ys. In Loosdrecht stuitten Van Leeuwen en manager Cees van Leeuwen op Mariska Veres, die daar optrad met The Motowns tijdens een feestje van de Golden Earring. Via haar moeder werd het contact gelegd.

SHOOT: ON THE FRONTIER
“SHOOT were formed by JIM McCARTY after he had left the original line-up of RENAISSANCE following on from the demise of The YARDBIRDS. The band’s one and only album was released in 1973 and featured ex members of RAW MATERIAL and MANFRED MANN CHAPTER THREE. Recorded at the world famous Abbey Road studios, London, the band was sadly relatively short-lived existing 1972 to 1973.
Now released for the first time ever on CD, Jim has added two previously unreleased radio session bonus tracks. Listen to a very unique album with wonderful harmonies that combines elements of country rock, psychedelia with prog and jazz rock.” (Source: www.angelair.co.uk.)

THE BLUES GIANTS
THE BLUES GIANTS  were a n occasional band that did a short, nine-date tour of Europe  (CH, DE, BE, NL)  late January, early February (2017), ending at De Korenbloem in Zingem (BE) where Radio 68 attended the show and spoke to the band backstage before the concert. Giants they are, with Mike Zito, Albert Castiglia and Sugaray Rayford all having recorded their own albums and having led their own bands, plus  William J. Campbell and Jimi Bott who paid their dues a s the rhythm section of The Fabulous Thunderbirds (among other things) . RADIO 68 PLAYS tracks from solo albums by Mike Zito, Albert Castiglia and Sugaray Rayford, plus related music and artists (see PLAYLIST)
