The Incredible Journey Of The Original Hurdy Gurdy Man
Mac Macleod's incredible musical journey starts in
the smokey folk clubs of the early sixties, where he appeared alongside
Bert Jansch, John Renbourn, Maddy Prior (as Mac & Maddy), Mick
Softley (as Soft Cloud) and Donovan. He moved on to garage rock and full
blown psychedelia, in groups such as the Other Side and The Exploding
Mushroom. Showing his friend Donovan some finger-picking guitar
techniques, they busked around the West Country in 1964, before
accompanying the tousled troubadour during his Pye years, and playing
the NME pollwinner's concert in 1965. In 1968 Donovan repaid his
friendship with a song, Hurdy Gurdy Man, written specially for Mac and
his group Hurdy Gurdy. They performed their power version for Donovan at
his Hertfordshire home, influencing the bard who adopted their electric
fuzz for his next single.Mac's journey was to take him around
Britain, and across Sweden and Denmark, where he first formed Hurdy
Gurdy. The group became an underground favourite and went on to headline
at Middle Earth, supporting Pink Floyd at the same venue. The
forthcoming anthology contains all of Mac's rare recordings, from the
acoustic folky beginnings through a succession of one-off groups, the
sitar-drenched Amber, two previously unheard blistering tracks from
Hurdy Gurdy themselves, and even a guest appearance with a fledgling
post-Zombies: Argent.Bringing the collection completely
up-to-date are four tracks by Mac's present band Silverlining. Their
brand of swirling folk-blues can be heard on The Cuckoo and Donovan's
Season Of The Witch, while Mac's new take of Hurdy Gurdy Man is nothing
short of brilliant.In the 60's the press were fond of claiming that
Donovan's influences were Bob Dylan and Woody Guthrie. Whilst an admirer
of these performers Donovan actually said in Beat Instrumental: "The
man who encouraged and helped me most was a fellow called Keith 'Mac'
Macleod, I've known him for about three years, and he's taught me
everything from chord progressions on the guitar, to how to appreciate
folk and real blues".Now in the Noughties Donovan and Mac have
become reacquainted. They are planning to work together again, probably
on Donovan's next set of live dates, when promoting the release of the
forthcoming EMI box set of his work.

Sunshine Girl: The Complete Recordings

      The Parade were Murray MacLeod (also a member of The Roger Nichols Trio/Small Circle of Friends), Jerry Riopelle (Phil Spector protégé and former Philles staff producer), and Smokey Roberds (songwriter and actor). Originally signed to A&M Records, The Parade not only created a definitively West Coast pop sound but also unknowingly helped establish the sunshine pop genre via their 1967 Billboard Top 20 hit, ‘Sunshine Girl’.

      This first-ever complete collection of the trio’s recorded output features the talents of no less than a pre-Loggins Jimmy Messina, Earl Palmer, Hal Blaine, David Gates, and other L.A./Wrecking Crew luminaries.

The gorgeous 16 page full-colour booklet also includes rare, previously unpublished photos and comprehensive liner notes that feature the participation of all original band members.

A Way Of Life: Anthology 1967-1976
•    The Family Dogg were a British harmony pop act revolving around the talents of writer/singer/producers Steve Rowland, Albert Hammond and Mike Hazlewood. Rowland was an American actor who met Hammond in Spain. In 1966, they formed Family Dogg with Hazelwood and singer Christine Holmes (alias Kristine Sparkle), which competed for their time with hit productions for the likes of Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick & Tich and The Herd.

•    Family Dogg debuted with a stunning cover of The Bee Gees’ ‘The Storm’ for MGM in late 1967. Two singles followed  on Fontana (which followed a solo single for the label by Steve Rowland) before the group landed at Bell Records in early 1969, where they immediately scored a UK # 6 hit with ‘A Way Of Life’. An album followed, named after their hit, boasting among the session players three-quarters of Led Zeppelin and Elton John!

•    Members of Family Dogg also worked on spin-off singles created to Steve & Edward and Pancho & Cisco, also released on Bell. In 1970, as Steve Rowland & Family Dogg, the band enjoyed a No. 2 hit in Holland with ‘Sympathy’, issued on Polydor.

•    In 1972, a new-look Family Dogg (with vocalist Ireen Sheer) returned on Buddah Records. By this time, Rowland was producing the then-unknown singer-songwriter Rodriguez (recently immortalised in the documentary film Sugar Man). As a result, Family Dogg recorded half a dozen Rodriguez songs during this period – including his exclusive composition 'Advice To Smokey Robinson'.

•    This new 2-CD set offers for the first time the complete Family Dogg output, including rare solo ventures, between 1967 and 1976. The sleeve-notes boast an interview with Steve Rowland.

•    This CD is released 21st April and will not be shipped prior to this date.
