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.

Unreleased & Live
Formed in 1967, Tomorrow evolved when former mod-influenced group the In Crowd embraced the emergent psychedelic/ "flower-power" scene. Their recordings "mixed Syd Barrett- styled whimsy with faerie inspired rock". This collection gathers together all of the band’s recordings outside of the studio album. Also included is the set for the legendary Christmas On Earth show from December 1967 and an essay by journalist John Storey who was there, to compliment the photos from the period.

The main part of the disc is a large part of Tomorrow's set from the December 1967 "Christmas On Earth" show in London, mixed by Steve Howe and Keith West. The band only did a relatively short set, some 45 minutes or less. Of this there were sound problems with a couple of numbers which precluded their use. The rest of the CD rounds up a Top Gear session, at least one unissued studio track, and the material they recorded for the film "Blow-Up"
