Leapers And Sleepers - Duffy Power

Leapers And Sleepers
Duffy began his music career as one of the famous Larry Parnes rock'n'roll stable of artists during the 1950's. Upon discovering the Blues at the turn of the decade Duffy left Larry Parnes, got a new deal with Parlophone and hooked up with R&B organist Graham Bond. The following years saw Duffy move in the same club circles as many R&B and Folk Blues artists such as Alexis Korner, Georgie Fame, Davey Graham, Bert Jansch.

Today Duffy is still held in high regard as a pioneer folk blues performer, as a singer, harmonica player, songwriter. An article all about his BBC radio recordings was published two months ago in Record Collector, a collection of them has just been issued by HUX, and Duffy is mentioned all the way through the recent Bert Jansch biography.

Duffys R&B archive is presented across 2 CDs ; Disc One is Duffy from 1962-1964, his first session for Parlophone, singles and unreleased session recordings backed by Graham Bond, then backed by R&B group the Paramounts, followed by the Fentones with drummer Ginger Baker. It has all his sought after Parlophone singles, unreleased sessions and the first version of I Saw Here Standing There which was rejected by the Beatles because it was "too jazzy".

Disc two are the recordings made during 1965-1967, sessions on which Duffy is largely backed by John McLaughlin, Jack Bruce, Ginger Baker, and consists of two singles and the rest being the then unreleased sessions.

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.

60's blues fusion musician, writer and singer Duffy Power finally achieved a stand alone LP release in 1973 when an eponymous album hit the racks on the GSF label.

Produced by Adrian Millar, as one of several on going projects in a Production deal set up with partner Andrew Loog Oldham, the Duffy Power LP became to date the only purpose recorded album Duffy has had released in his career.

For this fine collection of Duffy originals Millar brought in a stellar cast of musicians, plus backing singers Dana Gillespie, Pam McKenna, Alexis Korner, and Del Newman for string arrangements, to help bring the songs to life.

The album was well received and Millar continued to be a fan of Duffy's songs, offering a second LP. Sessions were begun with a regular backing band called CWT ( see also the RATS (RPM 322) where they backed singer / songwriter David Kubinec). Sadly only three tracks survive today as yet again another Duffy album project remained on the shelf.

As a follow up to the two successful Anthologies of Duffy's 60's recordings RPM is proud to make available again for the first time in 30 years, and for the first time on CD, the 1973 LP Duffy Power, plus the three recordings from the aborted follow up album. The package includes very personal song by song annotation from Duffy, and more unseen photos from Duffy's archive.

Boobs: The Junk Shop Glam Discotheque
Part based on the club listings of the early 70s and part based on the club listings of today, this compilation has the dance floor groovers with a bit of strum, a bit of stomp, and a whole lotta Glam.You’ve probably never heard of any of the artists, but those collecting the Lipsmackin’ series appear to be used to that now. In fact as with one recent review of Volume 5 (Bubble Pop) they get a bit miffed if any of the tracks were a hit! . Some acts do have interesting links, Jimmy Jukebox is that Nut Rocker Kim Fowley, Shout It Out was written and produced by John Springate of the Glitter Band, Little Bit O’Soul was /is a 60’s Northern Soul classic by the Music Explosion given the glam treatment, the Jets keyboard player was also in Cockney Rebel, Good Time Fanny was written and produced by Andy Scott of the Sweet. All meat and drink to the collector. Oh and BOOBS actually was the name of an early 70s discotheque, in south London and Bristol (appropriately) at least, probably elsewhere too.

Breakin’ It Up On The Beatles Tour
Our first in a series of De Shannon releases is a strong collection of originals like ‘When You Walk In The Room’, ‘The Prince’ and ‘You Won’t Forget Me’ along with her original version of ‘Needles & Pins’.The LP was hastily compiled in 1964 to capitalise on De Shannon being chosen to support the Beatles on their US tour that year. The rather ordinary LP front cover with a photo of De Shannon from somewhere else, not from the tour, rather reflects the haste. However the recordings are superb, arranged by Jack Nitzsche, they confirm what a tremendous performer she is, as the original liner notes declared:"Far from being just a decorative contrast on the stage Jackie has proven to be a terrific success. Her twisting, shouting performances have drawn wild applause and cheers from the record crowds at every concert.”In addition we have been able to add 8 bonus non LP tracks from the contemporary singles.
