Hello Everyone - Popsike Sparks From Denmark Street 1968-70 - Various Artists

Hello Everyone - Popsike Sparks From Denmark Street 1968-70
•    Between 1968 and 1970, some of the finest, most obscure British psychedelic pop singles of the era escaped on the Spark label, the newly-inaugurated recording arm of long-established publishers Southern Music.  

•    Recorded in the basement studio of the company’s Denmark Street premises, these tracks often featured the same cabal of musicians and songwriters, leading to a homogenous in-house style that perfectly encapsulates the late 1960s British pop-psych studio sound.  

•    The best of Spark’s impressive roster is now collected on CD for the first time on Hello Everyone: Popsike Sparks from Denmark Street 1968-70, which assembles highly-prized, highly-priced 45s from pre-Rare Bird band Fruit Machine, Gene Latter, post-Sorrows outfit the Eggy, the New Generation (subsequently to become the Sutherland Brothers), the Dennis Wheatley-inspired Icarus and both sides of the magnificent and astonishingly rare single by Sir Ching I (only one stock copy known to exist).  Also included are exquisite Brit popsike singles from Timothy Blue, Just William, both sides of the superb John Carter/Russ Alquist collaboration ‘The Laughing Man’/‘Midsummer Dreaming’ and two sensational offerings from Eartha Kitt during her brief and unlikely immersion in late Sixties hippy chick chic.  

•    Crammed with vintage three-minute pop tunes, and with a lavish 16-page booklet that features rare photos, quotes and the full story behind the label, Hello Everyone is simply an essential purchase for admirers of the British psychedelic pop genre.

You’ve Got What I Want – The Essential Sorrows 1965-67
When it came to tough, snarling, mod-into-freakbeat sounds, legendary mid-Sixties act the Sorrows had few peers. Formed in Coventry, the band was signed by producer/A&R man John Schroeder to the Piccadilly label in late 1964. In the space of little more than a year, they cut a superb album as well as a clutch of menacing, thrillingly essential 45s, including the iconic Take A Heart (the band s only chart success) and its equally incendiary follow-up, You've Got What I Want .

Featuring a dazzling 16-page booklet that contains previously unpublished photos, new liner notes and quotes from band members Don Fardon and Wez Price, You've Got What I Want is nothing less than pure sonic overload from one of the most dynamic garage bands of the era...

United We Stand
In the beginning, Tony Hiller created The Brotherhood of Man. Formed in the recording studio and launched into a world at war over Vietnam, peace certainly won the day on vinyl in 1970 with the group‘s top ten single ‘United We Stand’ and accompanying album’s original sleeve notes announcing the groups arrival "with an eloquent and convincing plea to unite”.

The Brotherhood of Man would eventually win a very different war with a very different line-up in Europe at the Eurovision Song Contest in 1976. A different time, place, sound. RPM’s collection, concentrates on their old testament with chief peacemakers Johnny Goodison, Tony Burrows, Roger Greenaway, Hal Atkinson, Russell Stone and the brit girl sisterhood of Sue Glover and Sunny Leslie. Featuring the complete 1970 album now with corresponding non-album Asides and B-sides together with Sue and Sunny’s soulful Deram 45s from the same period. United We Stand unites the best session singers and songwriters of the late sixties and early seventies in total harmony with both their record buying public and the charts of the times.

Further reflections, the complete recordsings 1967-69
Now widely considered to have been one of the finest groups to emerge from the British psychedelic pop scene, Kaleidoscope signed to the Fontana label in the epochal year of 1967. Over the next couple of years, they issued two magnificent albums, Tangerine Dream and Faintly Blowing, as well as a quintet of vibrant, inventive, highly commercial singles.

Somehow, though, they failed to achieve the glittering prizes that everyone predicted would be theirs. Frustrated by their lack of success, and with a heavier musical climate taking hold, they ended the decade with a change of name to Fairfield Parlour and a new deal with progressive rock label Vertigo.

But, as singer and lyricist Peter Daltrey observed at the end of Kaleidoscope’s debut album, the children stayed children, and they lived in their dreams. Undoubtedly the definitive Kaleidoscope package, Further Reflections assembles the group’s entire recorded legacy for the Fontana label under one roof for the first time. Relax your eyes, for after all, we can but share these minutes...

PRESS:-

"a double-disc set of psychedelia that bristles with period charm, and generally manages to remain on the right side of indulgent". Music Week, 29/06/2012


"Bringing together Kaleidoscope's two Fontana albums, Tangerine Dream and Faintly Blowing, plus all five of the group's singles, this is the first time their entire output has come under one roof". Mick Houghton (Uncut - July 2012)
