The Magic Garden

· Wow! Here at Rev-Ola we’re proud to present this true undisputed classic of orchestrated, psych-tinged soft pop.

· The 5th Dimension are one of the most successful American bands of the late ‘60s. Hey, everybody knows their hit versions of ‘Up, Up And Away’ and ‘Aquarius’!

· However, in 1968 they were teamed up with producer Bones Howe and wunderkind composer/arranger/all-round bona fide musical genius beyond redoubt, Jimmy Webb, who presented them with a complex song cycle based on his own tumultuous relationship with his partner. Nestling between such dyed-in-the-wool classics as ‘Carpet Man’, ‘The Girls’ Song’, ‘The Worst That Could Happen’ (which all became hit singles for other artists) and the life-affirming title track (as covered by Dusty Springfield no less) are such lesser-spotted Webb gems as ‘Summer’s Daughter’ and ‘Paper Cup’. The whole cycle is linked with beautifully ornate pieces of orchestration, sitar flourishes and ethereal vocals.

· The contractual obligation inclusion of an earlier recording of The Beatles’ ‘Ticket To Ride’ was originally shoehorned into the middle of the running order but we’ve taken the liberty of shuffling it to the end so it no longer interrupts the flow of the cycle.

· One hears accolades like "great albums of the ‘60s” bandied around willy-nilly these days but on this occasion we can state it with confidence.

· Digitally re-mastered by the lovely Norman Blake and with liner notes by the gorgeous Duglas T Stewart!

All benefiting from the distinctive Haven Lowrey Heritage keyboard sounds which he had been developing throughout the 60’s.

Gonks Go Beat / I’ve Got A Horse
Released 23rd February 2009. The times may a been a
changin’ as Dylan went electric, but not in British cinemas in 1965
when these B Picture movies were released by Anglo Amalgamated. With no
forward looking aspect to them they remain delightful time capsules from
a world when entertainment alone was the goal. Entirely ignoring
popular culture’s seismic movements at the time these films aimed at the
mass audience who were deemed to delight in frippery.At the same
time I Gotta Horse and Gonks Go Beat each generated exceptionally rare
soundtrack albums that are impossible to find today, and have never
before been reissued, which showcase some interesting artists and
combinations. For example exclusive tracks by Lulu, Graham Bond and a
terrific drum battle between Bobby Graham (also aka The Titan Studio
Orchestra.) /Alan White/Ronnie Verral/Ginger Baker on Gonks Go Beat,
with the specially penned Billy Fury material here placed in their
proper context.

Everything's Alright

The complete recordings of this well respected Merseybeat act during their career (1963-1967). Best known on record for their own song ‘Everything’s Alright’, in part through their own recording being regarded as one of the classic ‘Mersey Sound’ tracks ever, as well as it making the top 10, and later through David Bowie covering it on PIN UPS. Two other tracks also made the charts, Why Not Tonight and Seven Daffodils, from a collection of seven singles and one EP recorded for Decca. The complete recordings are bookended by their very first recording and their last. The first made as The Nomads was included on the Oriole LP This Is Merseybeat in 1963 , and the last was the previously un-reissued Liberty single as Stu James & The Mojos in 1967. This package comes complete with fresh quotes from the Mojos guitarist Nicky Crouch, who also supplied the archive photos, and lead writer and singer Stu James aka Stuart Slater.
