Round Amen Corner: Complete Deram Recordings - Amen Corner

Round Amen Corner: Complete Deram Recordings
Hailing from South Wales, Amen Corner were an energetic soul band fronted by charismatic signer Andy Fairweather-Low.

The seven-piece band signed to Deram in summer 1967, charting with their debut 45, Gin House Blues (#12), followed by another hit, The World Of Broken Hearts, that autumn (#24).


In January 1968, Amen Corner all but topped the charts with their vibrant version of Bend Me, Shape Me, one of the era’s finest hits.


Round Amen Corner, their sole Deram album, was issued in March 1968 and breached the Top 30. This is the first CD reissue of the album for more than two decades!


The bonus tracks are drawn from non-albums singles and B-sides. Collectively, this represents their entire Deram output. All tracks are remastered from the original tapes.


Press:-

"Cardiff's Amen Corner, ruled all over the place. Round Amen Corner, their lone 1968 album for Deram before turning towards Immediate, is a telling snapshot of a dynamite road band with an industrious brass section and a world class vocalist in Andy Fairweather-Low". 4* (Oregano Rathbone, Record Collector August 2012)         

"Despite being a rum old cocktail, this disc is worth every penny. Buy it." - Vic Templar, Shindig! Magazine, Winter 2012

Flying Again / Airborne
To many people, the mere mention of West Coast country rockers The Flying Burrito Brothers evokes memories of the talismanic Gram Parsons, continuing to live out hisAmerican cosmic music dream. True, Parson’s brief tenure with the band fell in between his even shorter time with The Byrds and his sadly equally short-lived solo career. But as these two Flying Burrito Brothers albums, along with a career that lasted even into the new Millennium, there’s a lot more to the Flying Burritos than Gram Parsons.When Gram Parsons died in September 1973, the legend surrounding his death led to increased interest in his musical legacy. A&M, keen to cashin, released the compilation album Close Up The Honky Tonks in 1974. This in turn prompted band members Ethridge and Kleinow to revive The Flying Burrito Brothers, this time with ex-Byrds guitarist Gene Parsons and country musicians Floyd Gib Guilbeau and Joel Scott Hill. The new-look band signed to Columbia Records, and released Flying Again , the first of these two albums in 1975. It ‘s a perfect example of the way country rock music had developed since The Byrds broke new ground with Sweetheart Of The Rodeo through to the manner in which the likes of the Eagles and Jackson Browne were now beginning to command American airwaves.

Story
In recent years Honeybus have outgrown the one hit wonder tag that plagued them for years and become one of the most treasured British bands of the late 60s. Sure, I Can't Let Maggie Go represents a high watermark of intelligent pop records reaching the top ten but there'sso much else besides. The band cut three singles in 1967 and 68, written and fronted by Pete Dello who promptly quit after Maggie hit and embarked on a fascinating and complex solo career. Not to be outdone, the band re-grouped and cut three further singles and an album that almost never got released. The story goes that upon their split in early 1970, somebody at their label, Deram Records, heard the recordings and demanded that it be released. And hence it was, posthumously and to little fanfare in 1970. Blending the kind of pure, crystalline folk-tinged baroque pop that had characterised most of their singles with flashes of psychedelia, country and bubblegum, the twelve songs that make up Story are uniformly stunning creations, played with skill and confidence, arranged for strings and woodwind and blessed with a sympathetic, understated production. We’ve added all eleven non-album Deram single sides, restored the original album artwork and told the Honeybus story with input from the band themselves. Mojo Magazine awarded a very respectable 3 stars to this CD. Our Price: £9.95
