Something About Suburbia, The Sixties Sound Of Tim Andrews - Tim Andrews

Something About Suburbia, The Sixties Sound Of Tim Andrews
Chris Andrews is best known for the six singles he cut for EMI’s Parlophone label between 1967 and 1970 under the name of Tim Andrews. (a name change to avoid confusion with the other singer/songwriter Chris Andrews who was already well established on the music scene).
His superb solo recordings – collected here for the first time – represent only part of an eclectic music career that could have only happened in the sixties.
Prior to signing to EMI as a solo artist in 1967, Andrews had played the ‘Artful Dodger’ in both the London and New York casts of Lionel Bart’s Oliver, before returning to London in 1965 and doing stints in such seminal mod and freakbeat bands as The Gremlins and Fleur De Lys, as both a singer and guitarist.
During his time with Fleur De Lys, Andrews also provided the lead vocal on the highly rated ‘Summer of Love’ single Reflections of Charles Brown, which was issued under the name Rupert’s People.
The extraordinary cuts where accompanied by Paul Korda (later of acid folk album‘Passing Stranger’ fame) come on like a Bee Gees / Franki Valli mash up.
Something About Suburbia brings together all of the 1966 -1970 solo and group recordings that feature Andrews as lead vocalist and uncovers the fascinating story of one of the most versatile English musicians of the sixties.

Groups & Sessions 65-74
Keith West is best remembered as the voice behind the legendary 'Grocer Jack' single Excerpt From A Teenage Opera, became a champion of both the pop charts and the 60's psychedelic lifestyle. Away from the pin-up-mags Keith also made a serious impression on the underground scene with Tomorrow. Keith enjoyed a wonderful and varied career, this compilation charts his progress through the 1960's and into the '70's with a remarkable collection of rare and previously unissued tracks. Ranging from Four + One, the In Crowd, with guitarist Steve Howe (who, when they became Tomorrow wrote two songs for the cult sixties thriller Blow Up, which appear here for the very first time) to both Teenage Opera Singles.

Lost Soul Singles & Demos 1966-1967 + Bonus LP 1974
LOST SOUL is a package to draw in and collect together previously lost and loose elements from the career of british blue eyed soul singer/songwriter Jackie Lomax.Jackie Lomax was the lead vocalist and bass player with The Undertakers, a stomping Merseybeat outfit of the mid 1960's. At the end of 1965 Jackie joined an Anglo American line-up playing R&Bcalled The Lost Souls, with a name change in 1966 to Lomax Alliance.Brian Epstein came to New York and offered to manage Jackie Lomax as a solo artist but ended up signing the band. Tracks were recorded in New York and London for a single and an album, produced by John Simon. Only the single got released in the Uk, and a different single under a different name in the US , Epsteins death curtailing further action for the band, but Lomax squeezed out a further solo single.Lomax continued his Beatle associations through signing as a writer / artist to Apple in 1968. Following several releases Lomax recorded with blues outfit Heavy Jelly in 1970, then released two solo albums through Warners upon a return to the US.At the end of 1973, Jackie Lomax joined Badger, a previously prog rock band originally formed by ex-Yes keyboard player Tony Kaye, and proceeded to turn them into his type of R&B/soul band. The band became a vehicle for his songs and singing and they released one excellent LP, White Lady, in 1974. In more recent times Lomax has kept busy as a singer and guitarist for hire.
