BACKGROUND + MEER INFORMATIE
HARPER’s BIZARRE: THE SINGLES COLLECTION
“Except for their California brethren The Association, no other band of the ’60s better represents the soft pop genre than Harpers Bizarre. Their seamless combination of baroque arrangements and gossamer vocals had few equals then or now, and nowhere is their achievement better illustrated than on the run of singles they recorded for Warner Bros. Records in the late 1960s. (…) the essence of Harpers Bizarre can be found on the 45s, which are all collected here for the first time.
What you’ll hear here is the remarkable refashioning of a four-piece guitar band enamoured with the sounds of the British Invasion into a silky-smooth vocal group supported by the cream of Los Angeles’ studio musician crop. The end result is a sound filled with so much sunshine that you might need to wear sunblock while you listen.
This 26-track deluxe edition includes many original mono single mixes, many of which have been out of circulation since their original release. Also included are all the pre-Harpers Bizarre singles, when the band recorded as The Tikis.
The deluxe, full-colour booklet also includes rare photos and extensive and insightful liner notes by Joe McGasko, the host of WFMU’s “Surface Noise.” (Source: http://www.cherryred.co.uk)
RADIO 68 PLAYS 8 tracks: their early Beatlesesque R&B singles as The Tikis and four examples of their sunshine pop!
BONGO BOY BLUES FROM THE BACKROOM
American indie label Bongo Boy is preparing its fourth volume in the Backroom Blues series. Meanwhile, Radio 68 has chosen a number of tracks from vol. 2. We picked one household name (Yardbirds-founders Top Topham and Jim McCarty) and three more by artists you may not know but do deserve your attention. Radio 68 will come back to the other volumes in due time. Bongo Boy is a rockin’ label and so is much of their blues output.
THE WHO LIVE AT THE ISLE OF WIGHT 30 August 1970
The Who’s set at The Isle Of Wight Festival, 1970, quickly became famous for introducing the audience to songs from “Tommy” and the forthcoming (and eventually aborted ) project “Lifehouse”. Tommy would change The Who’s direction. Radio 68 sticks to their sixties style and sound.
Nicky Hopkins joined the first line-up of the far off band Screaming Lord Sutch & His Savages in 1960 – aged sixteen. He moved on to the Cyril Davies All Stars and was taken ill. Nevertheless, it wouldn’t take long before he was asked to play alongside rock’s greatest talents. Ill-health prevented him from being a superstar in his own right, but he did join The Jeff Beck Group.
