RE-PRESS: CD ORIGINALLY RELEASED IN 2012

Every songwriter needs his muse and in 1969 a prolific partnership combining an American songwriter with a Brit girl vocalist scaled the UK pop charts with a string of outrageously catchy singles.

Kenny Young, the pen behind The Drifters’ ‘Under The Boardwalk’ and Reparata and the Delrons’ ‘Captain Of Your Ship’, hooked up with Clodagh Rodgers and a hit making team was born.

Kenny turned Ballymena born Clodagh’s Northern Irish luck around, transforming her into a walking one woman girl group with ‘Come Back And Shake Me’, ‘Goodnight Midnight’ and ‘Biljo’ – brilliant bubble- gum pop with catchy choruses featuring soaring vocals, heavy brass, bass and the fuzziest of guitars.

‘Come Back And Shake Me – The Kenny Young Years’ shuns the cover version fillers typical of the time and compiles all of Clodagh’s recorded highs with Young. Culled from A sides, B sides and three RCA albums she recorded with him between 1969-1971, together with ‘Just A Little More Line’, a rare Rodgers and Young single recorded under the name Moonshine.

This compilation follows her musical journey all the way to Dublin where Clodagh represented the UK in hot pants at the 1971 Eurovision Song Contest performing Eurotrash smash on a string, ‘Jack In The Box’.

Come back and hear Clodagh and Kenny’s hit making years once again…
