Was Here - Bronx Cheer

Was Here
Why should you buy this record ? I'll tell you why because Bronx Cheer are the happiest group in town. They make Mungo Jerry sound like manic depressives. The group are a left over from the fifties, gospellers of the good times. Basically a jug band, Bronx Cheer also have an irresistible brand of acoustic rock and roll. There's a touch of John Sebastian, a streak of Nilsson, a soupcon of the Temperance Seven. Formed originally in the early 1960's as The Jug Trust this band played the then lively folk club circuit. With writers Brian Cookman and John Reed in the band they were self-sufficient and released two singles through Parlophone. Changing their name to Bronx Cheer in 1968 they then hooked up with producer Barry Murray who doubled as A&R producer for Pye's Dawn label.

So in 1969 Bronx Cheer became beneficiaries of one of the labels 4 track maxi-single's, headed by Barrelhouse Player . A song title perfectly describing Bronx Cheer's musical leanings. Murray then produced the Cheers' first LP entitled Greatest Hits Volume 3. Sadly this was not prophetic and the Cheer were rather eclipsed by label mates and fellow Murray signed/produced artist Mungo Jerry. Bronx Cheer LP The album didn't make the charts but there was enough interest at the time to record a second LP, although politics were left it on the shelf. Thus those tracks receive their first airing here, and they are even more dynamic than the first LP!
