Ranging from Four + One, the In Crowd, with guitarist Steve Howe (who, when they became Tomorrow wrote two songs for the cult sixties thriller Blow Up, which appear here for the very first time) to both Teenage Opera Singles.

End Of The World
End Of The World by Greek Psych / Prog legends Aphrodite's Child. Formed in 1967 by keyboard player VANGELIS, the band also featured Demis Roussos on bass and vocals and Lucas Sideras on Drums. Their classic debut album was released in 1968 and featured the international hit Rain and Tears , partially inspired by Procol Harum's A Whiter Shade of Pale. However, the album revealed a more experimental side to the Band's nature with such Psychedelic gems as The Grass is No Green, You Always Stand in My Way and Day of the Fool. This Esoteric Recordings reissue has been re-mastered from the original tapes and includes both sides of Aphrodite's Child's first single as bonus tracks. Our Price: £10.95

Lost Soul Singles & Demos 1966-1967 + Bonus LP 1974
LOST SOUL is a package to draw in and collect together previously lost and loose elements from the career of british blue eyed soul singer/songwriter Jackie Lomax.Jackie Lomax was the lead vocalist and bass player with The Undertakers, a stomping Merseybeat outfit of the mid 1960's. At the end of 1965 Jackie joined an Anglo American line-up playing R&Bcalled The Lost Souls, with a name change in 1966 to Lomax Alliance.Brian Epstein came to New York and offered to manage Jackie Lomax as a solo artist but ended up signing the band. Tracks were recorded in New York and London for a single and an album, produced by John Simon. Only the single got released in the Uk, and a different single under a different name in the US , Epsteins death curtailing further action for the band, but Lomax squeezed out a further solo single.Lomax continued his Beatle associations through signing as a writer / artist to Apple in 1968. Following several releases Lomax recorded with blues outfit Heavy Jelly in 1970, then released two solo albums through Warners upon a return to the US.At the end of 1973, Jackie Lomax joined Badger, a previously prog rock band originally formed by ex-Yes keyboard player Tony Kaye, and proceeded to turn them into his type of R&B/soul band. The band became a vehicle for his songs and singing and they released one excellent LP, White Lady, in 1974. In more recent times Lomax has kept busy as a singer and guitarist for hire.

Caston & Majors
CASTON & MAJORS is one of the most sought after Motown releases of all time and BBR is proud to announce the first ever CD release of the classic album with an entirely unreleased follow-up album included as bonus tracks!
The son of the legendary bluesman Leonard "Baby Doo” Caston, Leonard Caston Jr. started learning music and how to play guitar from his father and later made his way onto piano. By the tender young age of eight Caston was playing keys at his local church. It was there he was approached by Maurice McAllister to join a group that would later catch the attention of A&R director Billy Davis of the legendary Chess Records. They recorded a few R&B hits as The Radiants before Leonard Chess sadly died of a heart attack in 1969.
Caston then joined Motown and began working alongside Kathy Wakefield and Frank Wilson, co-writing songs for The Supremes and Eddie Kendricks. Later some of his songs were also recorded by The Four Tops and The Jackson 5. Caston also earned himself a 1975 Grammy Nomination, around the time he met his future wife, Carolyn Majors.
After relocating to L.A. the duo signed a recording deal to Motown. CASTON & MAJORS features the hugely successful track I’ll Keep My Light In My Window. Co-written by Caston with Terri McFadden, the song would go to be recorded by the likes of Diana Ross, Marvin Gaye, and The Temptations and would win A Grammy when recorded by the Mighty Clouds of Joy. Other notable tracks include the incredibly uplifting LET THERE BE LOVE and EVERYTHING IS ALRIGHT NOW which features a more recognizable Motown sound.
BBR is extremely proud to present CASTON & MAJORS digitally remastered and lovingly repackaged for the first time on CD anywhere in the world!
Complete with liner notes featuring interviews with Leonard Caston and Carolyn Majors with added bonus content, this Motown gem is a must have for any Funk, Soul, Gospel and Disco fan.

Something About Suburbia, The Sixties Sound Of Tim Andrews
Chris Andrews is best known for the six singles he cut for EMI’s Parlophone label between 1967 and 1970 under the name of Tim Andrews. (a name change to avoid confusion with the other singer/songwriter Chris Andrews who was already well established on the music scene).
His superb solo recordings – collected here for the first time – represent only part of an eclectic music career that could have only happened in the sixties.
Prior to signing to EMI as a solo artist in 1967, Andrews had played the ‘Artful Dodger’ in both the London and New York casts of Lionel Bart’s Oliver, before returning to London in 1965 and doing stints in such seminal mod and freakbeat bands as The Gremlins and Fleur De Lys, as both a singer and guitarist.
During his time with Fleur De Lys, Andrews also provided the lead vocal on the highly rated ‘Summer of Love’ single Reflections of Charles Brown, which was issued under the name Rupert’s People.
The extraordinary cuts where accompanied by Paul Korda (later of acid folk album‘Passing Stranger’ fame) come on like a Bee Gees / Franki Valli mash up.
Something About Suburbia brings together all of the 1966 -1970 solo and group recordings that feature Andrews as lead vocalist and uncovers the fascinating story of one of the most versatile English musicians of the sixties.
