The Magic Garden
The Arbors are the last great 'lost' vocal harmony act of the 1960s. Formed by two sets of brothers at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor in 1965 (and you thought the MC5 were the first cool Ann Arbor act!), the quartet were signed to Columbia's Date imprint and scored their first hit with "A Symphony For Susan" in 1966. Indeed, it's the symphonic nature of many of their recordings that singled The Arbors out as being that little bit different from their 'cooler' peers. Then in 1969 the group semi-re-invented themselves with their third LP which spawned further hits in their mind-blowing, DJ-baiting versions of The Box Tops' "The Letter" and Blood, Sweat & Tears' "I Can't Quit Her". The album also featured stunning readings of Beatles, Dylan, Doors and Simon & Garfunkel tunes and should now be regarded as a bona fide soft pop classic. Shifting once again, in the early '70s the band moved away from pop and into the lucrative world of advertising jingles where they forged a 30-odd year career cutting ads for the likes of McDonalds, Texaco, Green Giant and United Airlines. Rev-Ola is proud to present Symphonies For Susan, the first definitive retrospective of this largely overlooked and hugely talented band, featuring tracks from all three of their albums, many of which appear on CD for the first time.

The Dreams of Michaelangelo
With beginnings going back to the 1950’s, this Liverpool group evolved through the Merseybeat era into being known as The Kirkbys. Mainstay was vocalist/guitarist Jimmy Campbell who also wrote most of the material. One song “She’ll Get No Lovin’ That Way” was covered by notable scenesters at the time, ‘The Escorts’, on their fourth single, whilst The Kirkbys only had one single released “It’s a Crime”, included here. Following a spell backing the Merseys, Jimmy Campbell and group moved into the psych 60’s period with a name change to the 23rd Turn Off (Liverpool being the 23rd turn off from the M6). In turn, one release resulted, the astounding “Michelangelo”, a beautifully crafted ballad, scored with some Penny Lane-esque trumpet and tinged with Campbell’s innate sense of melancholia. Following the 23rd Turn Off Campbell and Billy Kinsley went on to record the highly rated ‘Rockin Horse’ album, recently reissued by Rev-Ola. On this RPM collection you have the entire recordings of the Kirkbys and 23rd Turnoff, the released, the unreleased, the demos, in chronological order, packaged in rare and perfect period photos with notes from extensive interviews with group members.

Haven For Sale / St. Elmo’s Fire
Released on 18/01/10.

He further scored a surprise single hit with his recording of Image.

In 1969 and 1971 Haven recorded two albums for CBS , a mix of originals by Haven with his arrangements of covers. All benefiting from the distinctive Haven Lowrey Heritage keyboard sounds which he had been developing throughout the 60’s. Haven For Sale features jazz trumpeter Maynard Ferguson and direction from Keith Mansfield. St. Elmo’s Fire saw Haven experiment more with the keyboards and its effects, also producing and including more originals than before.

Five Day Week Straw People
Packed with imagination, first rate songs and confident performances that range from the swaggering hard rock of ‘Gold Digger’ to the dreamy psychedelic pop of ‘Sunday Morning’, ‘The Five Day Week Straw People’ is one of those rare LP’s where the music it contains more than justifies it’s decent price in the record price guides. It is now also to be found listed in Record Collector’s 100 Greatest Psychedelic Records. A 1968 concept album, about "people who work monotonously during the week and then try to enjoy themselves at weekends”, created by David Montague and Guy Mascolo, ‘The Five Day Week Straw People’ receives a long overdue re-mastering from the original tapes, and is augmented by two further character songs from writing sessions in the same year.
