Donovan’s second album – a widening of his style with a lot of jazz influence. A lot of great antiwar songs – Buffy St Marie and Bert Jansch. I was sixteen and I loved this album.
I make a distinction between Doo-wop and male vocal groups. I’ll deal with Doo-wop separately.
These vocal groups had a huge impact on the British Beat Groups. I loved their stuff
This takes me straight back to 1966. What a supergroup this was!
Another act in the Little Richard style. A real power duo. They did the original version of Farmer John. Precursors of Soul (just listen to I’m Leaving It All Up To you).
Quite an acerbic character – but a great album. I think I still prefer the Vevet Underground though.
Randy’s satirical lyrics and intelligence will give something to think about. Love it.
Chuck was one of the very best! Incredible. John Crosby put this up on facebook. I just had to copy it!! Great stuff. It seems that it’s a Chuck day today.
My mate Graham sent me this!! Superb!
Sometimes you hear a track and it just clicks. I love both these versions. So very different to each other.
Back when I was fifteen the Stones brought out their first album. I thought it was brilliant but then discovered the Sect’s first album. It was all R&B stuff and I thought they sounded great – every bit as good as the Stones.
This always takes me back! I’ll enjoy playing that album. It’s of its time.
