Gene Latter And The Shake Spears ‎– Summertime (196?)

Gene Latter And The Shake Spears ‎– Summertime (196?)





Label:Sounds Superb – 4M034-62069
Format:Vinyl, LP, Album 
Country:Belgium



Gene Latter And The Shake Spears ‎– Summertime (196?)

Gene Latter was an ex-boxer born in Cardiff, Wales, to Arabic parents. His real name was Arthur Ford, and he came from South William Street, Butetown. He had been a member of a local band called "The Alley Cats" before leaving to seek out his fortune in London. There he met the group "The Shake Spears", who were quite popular in Belgium at the time, and became their vocalist. He stayed with the band from early 1965 to Feb. 1966, and in 1968 recorded a 45 with an outfit called "Gene Latter & the Detours". He then started a solo career and released a number of 45s until the early 1980s.

The Shake Spears originated in Northern Rhodesia (which became Zambia in 1964). Original line up: Chris Kritzinger, Johnny Kreuger, Perry Jordaan and Calvin Coleman. Later members were Alan Escombe-Wolhuter, Gene Latter, Ron Patton, Brian, Chris Stone, and others. After the Shake Spears disbanded, Escombe and Stone formed the prog rock group Fynn McCool.

Cliff Richard & The Shadows - Summer Holiday (1963)

Cliff Richard & The Shadows - Summer Holiday (1963)

Originally released in summer 1963, Summer Holiday was the most successful movie and soundtrack that Cliff Richard ever put his name to, an almost absurdly feel-good flick accompanied by some of the best (and best-loved) songs in his entire catalog. Even today, no Richard hits compilation would be complete without the title track, "Bachelor Boy," "The Next Time," and "Dancing Shoes," while songs that were essentially regarded as soundtrack filler have likewise taken on a life of their own. The first serious attempt to mine the Summer Holiday archive arrived in 1996, when EMI's Cliff Richard at the Movies compilation included the radically altered movie versions of "Bachelor Boy" and "Summer Holiday" among its bonus tracks. Both reappear here, alongside fellow cinema-only takes of "The Next Time," "Big News," and the Shadows' solo "Big News"; also featured are rehearsal takes of "The Next Time" and "Bachelor Boy," plus both sides of an advertising EP distributed to movie theaters on the eve of the film's release. It's a solid gathering, with the movie versions at least the equal of the LP and single cuts. Of course it is difficult, after all these years, to fully reappraise Summer Holiday in the light of these new excavations -- the original album itself remains such a classic that any deviation from the familiar arrangements seems somehow wrong. But still, the 40th anniversary of one of British cinema's greatest successes needed celebrating and, in the absence of a fully remastered and bonus-packed DVD reissue, this set fulfilled that need very well.
