Listen To The Flowers Grow - Flowerpot Men

Listen To The Flowers Grow
On the 40th Anniversary of the summer of love and flower power classic Lets Go To San Francisco we present the story behind the song and the group. An interesting story unfolds as the studio recordings of John Carter and team take on a life as a real band, which brought in a further crop of outstanding performers. We begin with the build up pre- …San Francisco songs by group members such as Neil Landon, John Carter, Russ Alquist , through the Rain Rain Rain recording which used the Mellotron to such great effect and prefaced its later use by Carter on the hit just a couple of months later, onto the hit, and the various attempts at a follow up using different artist names.

The subsequent live group was led by vocalist Tony Burrows, but at times included future Deep Purple members Jon Lord and Nick Simper in the backing band. Our sleeve notes have new interviews with most of the writers and artists involved talking of their experiences with the group. Previously unreleased tracks, alternate versions, original mono versions, tracks unreleased at the time , all combine to make this a collectors gem, and a totally worthy celebration of the 40th anniversary.

Crystal Blue Symphonies: The Psychedelic Years
Released 27/04/09. Wow, another in our splendid series of overlooked Psychpop...and what a corker it is! In Europe at least, Tommy James is kind of the forgotten man of the 1960s...hit after hit, and what's available in Europe? Nothing much! After a run of megahits that included ‘Mony Mony’ (come on, everyone remembers that!), Tommy was ready to unleash his very own psychpop masterpieces…two fabulous albums released in short order, Crimson and Clover and Cellophane Symphony…veritable orgies of bendy pop, psych extravaganzas, early Moogs, theremins and tremolo! These are two albums long overdue for the RevOla treatment and here they are both in one handy place! Our Price: £9.95
