Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick & Tich - Best Of

Artist: Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick & Tich
Album: Best Of
Year: 2001
Genre: PopRock
Format: Mp3\320 kbs\130 Mb
This was not the only sixties group to have a silly name - Creedence Clearwater Revival was another that immediately comes to mind - and it didn't stop them making some upbeat, guitar-based rock music of really quality. It seems that they failed to make any impact in America, but they had thirteen hits in their native Britain between 1966 and 1969, many going high in the top ten.
Their only number one hit was The legend of Xanadu, but Zabadak reached number two while Save me, Bend it and Hold tight all reached number four. All these hits plus all their lesser hits and a few misses are included here.
Although most (but not all) of the songs are upbeat, fun songs, there is a remarkable variety of styles within this collection. Dave Dee Dozy Beaky Mick and Tich may well be the best British group of the sixties to fail in America. Although not up to the standard of the Beatles or the Rolling

"I first saw The Paramounts in 1962 in a low-key hop in a Leigh-on-Sea community hall. At this time, most groups in the Southend area were playing the songs from the current hit parade as required in the local dance halls. However, this group was not churning out Bobby Vee or Shadows tunes; I was to hear strange songs about 'Peanut Butter' and about 'Three Cool Cats' intermingled with familiar, but unfashionable rockers gleaned from records by Jerry Lee Lewis and Little Richard. The group's line-up comprised the regular lead guitar, bass, and drums; but instead of the usual rhythm guitar, the vocalist was utilising the hall's old piano, a mike thrust into the top. Even more unusual was the small gathering of unofficial 'backing vocalists' clustered around the stage. Their chants were lending response to those opening shouts of the US Bonds song 'New Orleans'; their unison of wails constituted the chorus of that incredible song about 'Peanut Butter'. On asking one of the choristers about the band, I was informed that The Paramounts were resident at The Shades Cellar Club on Sunday nights." MORE:

The Merseybeats - The Merseybeats (1964)

Originally called The Mavericks, Tony Crane (born Anthony Crane, 17 April1945, in Anfield, Liverpool) and Billy Kinsley (born William Ellis Kinsley, 28 November 1946, at The Mill Road Hospital, Mill Road, Anfield, Liverpool) formed their first band in late 1960 and became The Pacifics in September 1961. They were re-named The Mersey Beats in February 1962 by Bob Wooler, MC of the famous Cavern Club. Later in April 1962 they became The Merseybeats. By now Crane and Kinsley had joined up with guitarist Aaron Williams (born 23 June 1942, in Liverpool) and drummer John Banks (born 23 September 1943, in Liverpool died 20 April 1988). They were originally signed to the Brian Epstein organisation, but when Epstein failed to supply The Merseybeats with the same classy suits that he had given The Beatles, they parted company with him, much to their later regret.

The Fourmost - First and Fourmost (1965)

Lead guitarist / singer Brian O' Hara and bass guitarist / singer Billy Hatton, friends since grammar school, formed The Blue Jays in 1958. The group changed their name to the Four Jays, and made their debut at the Cavern Club on March 1, 1961, nearly three weeks before The Beatles. Rhythm guitarist/ singer Mike Millward joined the Four Jays in November 1961, followed by the drummer/singer Dave Lovelady in September 1962. In the summer of 1963, the group -- now called The Fourmost -- signed a management contract with Brian Epstein. This led to their being auditioned by George Martin and signed to EMI's Parlophone record label. NEXT:

Arcadium - Breathe Awhile (1969)

Country: UK
Years: 1969
Mp3\320 kbs\126 Mb

- John Albert Parker / drums
- Robert Ellwood / lead guitar, vocals
- Miguel Sergides / 12-string guitar, vocals
ARCADIUM "Breathe Awhile" CD was originally released in the UK in 1969 and perhaps most closely aligned with the heavier side of psychedelia, this obscure album, is a standard fixture on many a collector's 'most wanted' list. The intense 12-minute guitar and organ-driven opening track, 'On My Way', sets the album's slow-burning epic tone. The whole album is high quality, with no stale moments, but highlights include 'Poor Lady', the 7 minute 'Walk On the Bad Side', and the 10-minute 'Birth, Life and Death'. This CD reissue also includes two rare bonus tracks: 'Sing My Song' and 'Riding Alone'
Arcadium was another list of obscure British psychedelic bands. They had their start playing at such clubs as The Middle Earth (where every act you can imagine from well known, like Pink Floyd, to little known acts like Writing on the Wall, Wooden O, and Tam White were seen performing there). A small label called Middle Earth, who released only five albums, (one being a compilation called Earthed, another by Writing on the Wall called The Power of the Picts which I have reviewed here) released Breathe Awhile their one and only LP.
The band consisted of (presumably) brothers Allan Ellwood (organ, vocals) and Robert Ellwood (lead guitar, vocals), as well as John Albert Parker (drums), Graham Best (bass, vocals), and Miguel Sergides (12-string guitar, vocals). The music is late '60s British psychedelia with some early prog leanings, where guitar and Hammond organ dominates. NEXT:

Recommended for Zombies fans and 60s fans.
"The Zombies in True Stereo--what a treat! This album has very clear true stereo the way it was meant to be recorded back in the sixties. I rate this album a must have with a plus 10 rating- The stereo is incredible with all tracks excellent--Zombie fans must all get this album (the Decca recordings) and play it loud!!!!! This beats any other Zombie out as far as stereo sound....Buy it now"(J. R Sategna )
"Although I rarely dip into the musical past, the Zombies music still haunts me after all these years. This brilliant band from the 60's recorded some amazing music that never got the recognition it deserved. Unlike a lot of music from that era, much of what the Zombies did still holds up today. Their originals and covers both offer a unique style even now. This collection offers the best sound quality available that helps make their music sound as good today as I remembered it to be. Although I own a few of their other collections, this one is it. Buy it now! There are 48 cuts on the two CDs, so pick 20 or so of your favorites and create the best Zombies collection one could hope for. The only essential missing link from this collection is "Time of the Season" and you can get that elsewhere and add it to your mix.. " (R. Sousa "usarj" )
