The Herd - Paradise Lost. The Complete UK Fontana Recordings

Paradise Lost: The Complete U.K. Fontana Recordings Review by Richie Unterberger

There have been a bunch of CD compilations of the Herd, and this isn't too different from some of the others that have appeared. In fact, it's less extensive than some of the more ambitious ones. So what does it have in its favor? Its aim, according to the liner notes, is to concentrate "on what was undoubtedly the Herd's golden period, assembling their complete U.K. releases during the tumultuous 1967-1969 time frame." In that, it succeeds as a good 24-song compilation, including everything from their half-dozen 1967-1969 U.K. singles and the entirety of their 1967 album Paradise Lost. (To be picky, there would have been room to add the 1967 U.S. B-side "Understand Me.") In addition, the 16-page booklet has excellent liner notes from renowned British rock historian David Wells, along with plenty of period pictures, clippings, and record sleeve repros. Musically, it's the same mixed bag that other Herd compilations offer, from the playful, light psychedelic pop of their Howard Blaikley-written singles to mediocre Walker Brothers-like tracks and their fitful attempts to establish a more respectable identity via their original material. Listening to this, it's easy to grasp why the Herd don't have the cult reputation of markedly less commercially successful British bands of the era like, say, the Creation. It sounds like the work of several groups, almost to the point where you can actually sense the Herd's frustration at not being able or allowed to organically develop their own approach. Only on occasion do you get a glimpse of a genuinely promising band, especially when they get into the moderately heavier and bluesier rock that was obviously closer to their heart, especially on Frampton's brooding "On Your Own," the jazzy instrumental "Impressions of Oliver," and, in a poppier vein, "She Loves Me, She Loves Me Not."

She studied piano, classical guitar and ballet during her childhood.Campello presented her own radio show when she was 12, at Rádio Cacique. In 1958 she recorded her first vinyl in São Paulo together with her brother Tony Campello who accompanied her in most of her career. Her debut in televisionwas at TV Tupi's Campeões do Disco, in 1958. In 1959 she and Tony presented Celly e Tony em Hi-Fi, at Rede Record, until 1961.Her breakthrough was in 1959 with the single Estúpido Cupido, the Brazilian version of Stupid Cupid.That same year she was featured in Mazzaropi's feature, Jeca Tatu.

Celly was one of Brazil's earliest jovem guarda (pop stars) singing cutesy covers of American hits alongsidehomegrown songs about brotos and brotinhas, beachcombing teenyboppers whose pop culture as in America  was created almost out of whole cloth by an eager, energetic, avaricious recording industry. Regardless of how prefab the whole jovem guarda scene may have been, Celly Campello was one of its finest artists,belting out innocent, optimistic songs with a fine, squeaky voice and plenty of good-naturedenthusiasm One of the earliest of the ie-ie-ie rockers, the swinging Miss Campello was,Brazil's answer to Brenda Lee, Annette Funicello, and other '50s teen idols. She was one of the first, and liveliest, Brazilian rockers, covering North American pop tunes and Brazilian soundalikes.

 Campello died on 4 March 2003 of breast cancer,

Sounds Incorporated were a saxophone-led instrumental style sextet,
 from Dartford, Kent, England. The group formed in 1961 and had their first taste of success
 backing Gene Vincent for his UK tour as a replacement for The Blue Caps who had been
 denied British work permits. They initially released a single "Mogambo" on the Parlophone
 label and later produced three singles on Decca, the last of which "Keep Movin'"
was produced by Joe Meek. The group had already made use of the unique sound
 of an electronic 'Clavioline' keyboard before this recording and it was an instrument
 also adopted by another Meek-produced group, The Tornados.

Whilst performing in Hamburg in 1963 Sounds Incorporated gained the attention
 of The Beatles and were subsequently signed to NEMS by Brian Epstein.
 The group toured with The Beatles as the opening act, including the famous
Shea Stadium concert in New York. 
Sounds Incorporated began releasing singles
on the Columbia label, gaining  success in the UK charts. Their third single "William Tell"
 reached #2 in the Australian charts in 1964, the same year that the band released
 their first eponymous album and became a regular backing group for Cilla Black.
 Another album followed, also titled "Sounds Incorporated", on EMI's Studio 2 label in 1966.

Sounds Incorporated had shortened their name to "Sounds Inc" by 1967
 and Cameron, Holmes and West also featured as the saxophone section
 on the track "Good Morning Good Morning" for The Beatles' album
"Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band". The group then left EMI and recorded
 the single "How Do You Feel", featuring vocals for the first time,
on the Polydor label. 
Sounds Incorporated began to disintegrate
 when Newman departed, performing  with the Jeff Beck Group,
 and with Cameron leaving to follow a career in A&R.
The group moved to Australia where their popularity was stronger
but, after the release of a further LP, 
Sounds Incorporated finally broke up in 1971.

The Flee-Rekkers – also known as The Fabulous Flee-Rakkers – were a British instrumental rock and roll band in the late 1950s and early 1960s. The spelling of the group's name varied between records. They were fronted by tenor saxophonist Peter Fleerakkers (or Fleerackers), and their records were produced by Joe Meek. Their biggest hit was "Green Jeans" in 1960.
The group was influenced by saxophone-led bands like Johnny and the Hurricanes. They started under the names The Ramblers and The Statesiders (from February 1959), before taking a more permanent name derived from that of their leader Peter Fleerekkers (tenor sax) (born Peter Fleerackers, 1938, Holland), whose father was Dutch. Other members of the group were Dave 'Tex' Cameron (lead guitar) (born 21 October 1939, Ealing, West London), Alan Monger (rhythm guitar, baritone sax) (born 12 October 1939, Hackney, East London), Elmy Durrant (tenor sax) (born 24 March 1939, Edgware, Middlesex), Derek Skinner (bass) (born 5 March 1942, London), and Mickey Waller (drums).
They were spotted playing at a The Hive Jive, The Putney Ballroom in Putney, South West London in late 1959, and successfully auditioned for record producer Joe Meek.[2] He produced their first single, "Green Jeans", a rocked-up version of the traditional "Greensleeves" released on Meek's own label, Triumph Records, in early 1960. The record reached No. 23 on the UK Singles Chart, but demand outstripped Meek's capacity to supply copies. After the Triumph label collapsed, the record was reissued on the Top Rank label, which itself was then taken over by EMI. The group also featured on a single, "Hot Chick-A-Roo", by singer Ricky Wayne 

The Flee-Rekkers released several more singles and an EP with less success, at first on the Pye label, and then on Piccadilly.  According to the liner notes of their EP, they "were the first 'rock' group to be signed for a long term contract with Mecca after making appearances at their ballrooms up and down the country, and in the London area." They toured Britain extensively in the early 1960s, with a reputedly "wild" live act.  Their final single in 1963, "Fireball", a version of the theme music to the animated TV series Fireball XL5, arranged by Tony Hatch, is regarded as one of their best.

The group broke up in August 1963. Fleerakkers played in various unsuccessful bands before leaving the music business in the late 1960s. Cameron, Monger and Durrant formed a new group, The Giants, who mainly performed in Germany. They played at The Top Ten Club, Hamburg, West Germany with new lead singer Tony Vincent (born 12 May 1941,They had already been joined by bassist Harry Kershaw (born 5 October 1944,  and drummer Kenny Slade (born 27 May 1939,  Skinner became a member of the Spotnicks.  Waller became a leading session drummer, playing with such musicians as Cyril Davies, Long John Baldry, Rod Stewart, Brian Auger, John Mayall and Jeff Beck; 

V.A. Pippermint Twist (Rockin' Twist - Instrumentals - Exotica And Other Sound From Spain 1958-1966)

Hi folks:

For many years I have had this album in my collection as one of my favorites, since it is a look at the first Spanish bands in the early sixties, bands that with some exceptions later had no repercussion on the Spanish music scene.
There are bands that would later achieve fame in Spain, such as "Los Pekenikes" or "Los Relámpagos", being the best instrumental bands in the country, but that originally had a really raw sound, in contrast to their later elegant sound. .
I would also like to comment on "Espacial" from "Los Continentales", which has always been compared to "Telstar", although "Los Continentales" released it before "The Tornados", I suppose that if it had been behind them as in "Tornados" "The great Joe Meek would have been a worldwide hit.

Enjoy this vision of the birth of Spanish music.

 Hi to all ! First of all, I want to apologize that I could not warn about my absence from the blog ...

In January next year, our blog will be exactly 15 years old. Then, before deletion (many probably remember ..) it was called Wings Of Dream. 15 years is not a bad time and I would like our ship  stay afloat for a long time.

I'm very glad that Jose has appeared on our team. Many people know his wonderful blog, so we can hope that rare and original material will appear on our pages from time to time.

Among our readers there are people who have been sharing music archives with us for a long time. It's a shame that in the CBox side-bar these links go off the line very quickly. I have several options for solving this problem.

First, I would like to invite the authors of Cbox posts directly to the blog as authors. First of all, these are Aussie, Dusty and those who shared music with us ...

The second option is a subblog ( and in which you can leave simple, original links. For this, you also need to become an author. The blog is still in test mode. I think it will take me two or three days to complete the design.

And third, if I myself or the moderators of the OM blog will duplicate any links to archives that our readers share.

Friends. I will not hide, it becomes difficult for me to blog alone, to the extent, that you are used to ...Therefore, I need your help. The number of authors in the main blog will be limited and I first of all hope for the help of people whoalready have actually become authors. 

In the subblog, I believe, there may be more authors. But authorship for the sake of authorship is undesirable ...Write me (  who is ready to become a subblog author and periodically share music. 

Dusty, Aussie, please contact me ( I'm wondering which of the suggested options seemed acceptable to you.

Sorry again. All the best. And take care of yourself.

I'm waiting for your comments, remarks and suggestions  the proposed options. Is its worth it? Dmitrich
