Half Past Midnight: The Staccatos and Beyond - Five Man Electrical Band

Half Past Midnight: The Staccatos and Beyond

Having released two LPs as The Staccatos, Ottawa, Canada’s FIVE MAN ELECTRICAL BAND launched onto the scene in 1968 with this criminally underrated, psychedelically tinged pop gem.

Reminiscent of The Beatles, The Beach Boys, Buffalo Springfield and other like-minded bands, Five Man Electrical Band developed into one of Canada’s best-known groups, and their Capitol 45 of ‘Half Past Midnight’ sold over 25,000 copies--in Canada alone!

Led by LES EMMERSON, Five Man Electrical Band is today best known for their 1971 anti-establishment anthem ‘Signs.’ The Billboard # 3 single went on to sell over a million and a half copies.

This first-ever CD issue of their long-out-of-print Capitol LP is supplemented by rare Staccatos 45s, none of which have ever been issued on CD.

The 16-page colour booklet also includes rare, unpublished photos and comprehensive liner notes that feature the participation of original band members.

Something Wonderful

The wonderful TINA MASON exploded on the L.A. scene in 1966, appearing at Disneyland and later starring as a regular on Dick Clark’s Where The Action Is, where she met future husband and Paul Revere & The Raiders bassist Phil "Fang” Volk. After fronting Tina & The Mustangs, she embarked upon recording 1967’s Is Something Wonderful with Electric Prunes producer DAVID AXELROD and the great L.A. arranger H.B. BARNUM (Lou Rawls/Supremes/Sinatra). The result was a sumptuous blend of Bacharachian L.A. soft pop and Northern soul/girl group attitude.

Northern soul collectors have long coveted Tina’s LP and accompanying singles, and specific tracks of interest are‘Finders Keepers’ and also Tina’s gorgeous version of the legendary Northern side ‘What’. These days it is not uncommon for Is Something Wonderful to exchange hands for three figures. This first-ever CD release of Is Something Wonderful features the talents of no less than Wrecking Crew royalty EARL PALMER and DENNIS BUDIMIR and is enhanced with seven first-time-on-CD bonus tracks
.

The 16-page color booklet also includes rare, unpublished photos and comprehensive liner notes that feature the participation of H.B. Barnum and Tina herself.

Love Heals : The Complete Recordings

COLOURS launched onto the scene in 1968 with a stunningly glorious psychedelic masterpiece of L.A studio wizardry. A "super group” before the name was coined, Colours was the brainchild of GARY MONTGOMERY & JACK DALTON, two hard-working, former MOTOWN songwriters who also penned songs for THE TURTLES, NINO & APRIL and THE MOON. This magical mystery tour-de-force of psychedelic Beatlesque pop also features the talents of DEREK & THE DOMINOS’ bassist CARL RADLE.

This first-ever CD issue of their long-out-of-print albums (Colours and Atmosphere) is supplemented by long-lost ’67 Dalton & Montgomery recordings cut just months before they formed Colours. 1969’s Atmosphere features former BEACH BOY DAVID MARKS around the same time he was a member of THE MOON—another band with many connections to Colours.

The 16-page colour booklet also includes rare, unpublished photos and comprehensive liner notes that feature the participation of original band members.
