ACHTERGRONDINFORMATIE ** BACKGROUND

GET YOURSELF A COLLEGE GIRL

“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: https://www.warnerbros.com/get-yourself-college-girl).

“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)

THE ELECTRIC PRUNES: CALIFORNIA, cd 2004

Long after massive hits like ”I Had Too Much To Dream”, original Prunes James Lowe, Mark Tulin and Ken Williams, plus 1968 line-up drummer Joe Dooley and more recent member, guitarist Mark Moulin recorded “California” in 2004. To quote the band: “CALIFORNIA is a collection of songs that reflects the band’s memories and experiences of a better time in an iconic place. A time of innocence and rock and roll. A time when people still believed you could find gold in California. Could such a place still exist? Take a few steps back and come flying…”.
Jerry Kranitz: “So does the place still exist that the Prunes pine away for? It does on this album. We’ve got a solid collection of well written, catchy songs. A sense of fun pervades throughout the album as the Prunes plough through a rockin’ set of numbers that blend the California sound they seek with good ‘ol down ‘n dirty psychedelic garage rock. There some great psychedelia on the album (…)” .

GRAHAM BOND

Long before he became famous and recorded his own albums as The Graham Bond Organization, composer -singer but first and foremost keyboard player and saxophonist GRAHAM BOND had been in a variety of bands, often with a more jazz-oriented repertoire. The pre-Orginzation bands that carried his name could be a trio or a quartet or something else. Some members of Bond’s bands became more famous than the man himself, notably Jack Bruce, Ginger Baker, John McLaughlin and the Colosseum duo of Dick Heckstall-Smith and Jon Hiseman.
Here’s a great and detailed bio of the man by Borge Skilbrigt  http://grahambond.org/biography.html

RADIO 68 PLAYS The Graham Bond Quartet feat. Jack Bruce, Ginger Baker and John McLaughlin (+ the guest voice of Bobby Breen). Recorded live at the Paris Cinema, London, for the BBC and broadcast on 25 April 1963, it’s from the wonderful 4cd compilation “Graham Bond Live at the BBC and Other Stories” (BBC / Repertoire).
