Shy Boy : The Complete Recordings 1967-1969 - Kippington Lodge

Shy Boy : The Complete Recordings 1967-1969
Kippington Lodge released five excellent singles on Parlophone Records between 1967 and 1969, yet they remain one of the least known English pop groups of the late sixties.This despite boasting a line-up that included Nick Lowe as well as Brinsley Schwarz and Bob Andrews (future members of Graham Parker & The Rumour) who would all find fame and in Lowe s case, fortune for their musical exploits in the decades to follow.Kippington Lodge have been afforded so little recognition that with the exception of having their singles crudely tacked on to a Brinsley Schwarz compilation CD in 1998 their output has never been presented and evaluated in the proper context.The group - whose first two singles were produced by famed EMI producer Mark Wirtz , including their contemporary version of the Keith West penned Shy Boy, today a regular on 60 s radio programmes - was a true creature of the sixties.

PRESS:-

"Only lead vocalist Schwartz himself features on the first two singles, the jaunty Shy Boy and the impossibly catchy Rumours – both the handiwork of producer Mark Wirtz, who also masterminded Keith West’s Top 10 hit Excerpt From A Teenage Opera.”

More Of The Cake
What links New Orleans Maestro Harold Battiste, Dr. John, The Soft Machine, The Daily Flash, Tiny Tim, Jack Nitsche, Sonny and Cher, Traffic, Jimi Hendrix and Ginger Baker's Airforce? The Cake, the last of the classic girl groups, whose two 1967/68 albums are as they say a game of two (sometimes three!) halves, classic girl groupisms mixed with Baroque Pop, Wyrd Folk, Psychpop and club R&B, all with a wonderful good humour. Fans of the esoteric might care to know that Kevin Ayers' song "Eleanor's Cake Which Ate Her" is about the group, that they sang backing vocals on Electric Ladyland and the first Soft Machine album. Also Eleanor herself sang ‘I Got You Babe’ with Tiny Tim (backed by The Band) in the cult movie "You Are What You Eat". A wonderful snapshot of the Sunset Strip, with a wonderfully decadent atmosphere for three such innocent girls...you'll just love it! The Cake recently reformed to play the prestigious launch party for the forthcoming Jimi Hendrix biopic, and who knows – they may come to your town soon... Never previously on CD cult artists, wonderfully re-mastered by Mr. Nick Robbins and with gorgeous packaging featuring wonderful pictures provided by The Cake and legendary rock photographer Ed Caraeff.
