Come Join My Orchestra covers British baroque pop’s formative years and its integration into a wide variety of genres, ranging from Johnny McEvoy’s exquisitely sculpted take on traditional pop balladry and a clutch of dyed-in-the-wool folkies (Ian Campbell, Bert Jansch etc) to McCartney acolytes (Fickle Pickle, Mike Batt, the Gerry Rafferty-led Humblebums) and symphonic/art rock bands like Procol Harum and Barclay James Harvest.
Each concert demonstrates what an exciting live prospect Alcatrazz truly were, CDs One, Two & Three all feature concerts recorded in Texas in 1984. CDs Four and Five are yet another unique and useful insight into the working of this band’s early work ethic, with demos and instrumentals from the 1983 debut demonstrating many of the songs’ developments.
This edition presents the Missa Luba complete in a programme which also includes the delightful Christmas in the Congo album and a selection of both children's songs and songs from Luba folklore, all performed joyfully by Father Guido Haazen's remarkable youth choir.
The Deele’s first three Solar albums (released between 1983-1987) - presented as expanded editions on this 3-CD set showcase the kind of funky R&B-and-pop fusion that was at the very heart of the music of the ‘80s, which, some three decades later, is being afforded a new level of appreciation.
