eYeGeNeYe productions proudly presents: - Embassy Budget Beat – 4Shillings and Sixpence at Woolies|
Good idea to collect the Embassy Beat tracks. Although 30 songs of Woolworth’s cash in label are present in my own collection, there’s 45 more that have never been compiled and are good fun hearing after 5o+ years. I remember my mother coming home from her shopping with a anonymous “I want to hold your hand” single she bought at Woolies. Of course, I soon found out that it was not the Beatles, so naturally I scorned it (eventually putting it on the record table many time when no one would watch). We know about the ID of the singers who had recorded for the label before (in a crooner style. mostly) , but who where the Typhoons, the Jaybirds the Starlings and the Beatmen? I guess we never will know, although some album liner notes from Embassy state the Typhoons were “Berry, John, Eddy and Danny“. (For sure, the Jaybirds were NOT the eponymous Nottingham band led by Alvin Lee, dear discogs). At any rate, they must have been true professional session men, as they had to cover bands from the Zombies to the Pretty Things and songs from "How do you do?"to "Anyway anyhow anywhere". They succeeded quite well with it, playing and singing in a stunningly fresh style, sometimes even topping the originals (like with “Everything’s alright", "Hubble Bubble", "I’m the one". “The Game of Love"), always close to the original hits although bringing in some sloppyness in playing which makes them sound iike a Punk band, in my ears . I doubt they had a chance to rehearse the songs in the recording studio as productions were done in a rush since the records had to be on the market within a few days. Maybe it’s those slight differences of interpretation that yield the listening fun. Embassy sold their products worldwide, from Canada to South Africa and from Sweden to even the Lebanon, so I wonder how many people actually bought the singles and EPs, internationally. Probably much more than the ones who bought Freddy and the Dreamers or The Mojos , and the Mindbenders, so the Embassy groups should have their place in the international hit charts. More of the scarce info on the Embassy label in the booklet attached, if you’re interested. But probably you’ll just like to go through the chronological row of (British) hits from 1963 to 1965 (some recorded in shortened versions , as 2 songs had to be pressed on each single side). I have listed 20 more tracks that are missing and I will add a fourth CD to the set if you send them to me. I hope you’ll enjoy the Best of the Budget Beat Hits!CD#101/ Ray Pilgrim - Let's dance02/ Ray Pilgrim - Some kinda fun03/ Typhoons - Please please me04/ Typhoons - From me to you05/ Les Carle - Bo Diddley06/ Ray Pilgrim - Twist and shout07/ Typhoons - All my loving08/ Mike Redway - Bad to me09/ Typhoons - Come on10/ Typhoons - Surf City11/ Typhoons - She loves you12/ Typhoons - Hello little girl13/ Mike Redway - Don't talk to him14/ Mike Redway - I'll keep you satisfied15/ Ray Pilgrim - Do you love me?16/ Typhoons - I want to hold your hand17/ Typhoons - Money18/ Ray Pilgrim & Beatmen - 5-4-3-2-119/ Typhoons - I'm In Love20/ Les Carle & Beatmen - I'm the one21/ Typhoons - Needles & Pins22/ Typhoons - Stay23/ Typhoons - Hippy Hippy Shake24/ Jaybirds - Over you25/ Typhoons - Bits and PiecesCD#201/ Typhoons - Candy Man02/ Jaybirds - Not Fade Away03/ Jaybirds - You Can't Do That04/ Typhoons - Can't buy me love05/ Jaybirds - Hubble Bubble (Toil And Trouble)06/ Typhoons - Everything's alright07/ Typhoons - Don't throw your love away08/ Jaybirds - Baby Let Me Take You Home09/ Mike Redway & Terry Brandon - Nobody I know10/ Typhoons - You're no good11/ Ray Pilgrim & Beatmen - Hold me12/ Bobby Stevens (Ray Pilgrim) - Shakin' all Over13/ Redd Wayne & Beatmen - On the Beach14/ Typhoons - Tell me why15/ Typhoons - I should have known better16/ Typhoons - Tobacco Road17/ Typhoons - A hard day's night18/ Starlings - Thinking Of You Baby19/ Ray Pilgrim - Have I the right20/ Jaybirds - She's Not There21/ Typhoons - You Really Got Me22/ Ray Pilgrim & Beatmen - Together23/ Typhoons - I'm Cryin'24/ Typhoons - Um - um - um - um - um - um25/ Jaybirds - All Day And All Of The NightCD#301/ Terry Brandon & Beatmen - Don't Bring Me Down02/ Typhoons - Little Red Rooster03/ Starlings - Remember (Walkin in the sand)04/ Jaybirds - What have they done to the rain05/ Ray Pilgrim - Yeh, Yeh06/ Typhoons - I feel fine07/ Jaybirds - Go now08/ Typhoons - Tired of waiting for you09/ Typhoons - Baby please don't go10/ Typhoons - The game of love11/ Typhoons - Honey I need12/ Typhoons - The last time13/ Starlings - I Can't Explain14/ Typhoons - For your love15/ Typhoons - Here Comes The Night16/ Typhoons - Ticket to Ride17/ Typhoons - Bring it on home to me18/ Typhoons - I'm alive19/ Terry Brandon & Beatmen - The Price Of Love20/ Jaybirds - Set Me Free21/ Typhoons - Heart Full Of Soul22/ Typhoons - Help!23/ Jaybirds - Anyway, Anyhow, Anywhere24/ Jaybirds - Somebody Help MeBonus track 25/ Bobby Stevens & Kay Barry - Come outside

UC291 - 292 – Mas Garage del Centro, pts. 1 and 2|
This 4 pack is kind of a sequel to Wirtis’ "Rock centroamericano 60s & 70s" 4 CD collection, posted at garagelatino (http://garagelatino.blogspot.com/2017/01/va - rock - centroamericano - 60s - 70s.html#comment - form
). (I think it’s still available). Except of that (and "Psycofasicos de Bolivia"), to my knowledge there has never been a compilation of Garage tunes from Middle America, the "minor" States (well, Bolivia ain’t exactly much minor), so all tracks you get here are uncomped. Initially, I wanted to call this set “Little Latin Losers” since bands from middle America had to face some tough hurdles. Musicians from el Centro were far away from the big record companies and recording studios in LA or elsewhere and had hardly a chance to use studio trickery. So you should not expect flashy drums, pumping organs and mindwrecking guitar sounds. They compensate this by using some strange instruments, much shouting during the recording sessions, and, eventually simply by tiddling with the volume knob during the master mixing, if there was any. Of course you’ll get a few Wooly Bullies and more cover versions, but the best, to my ears, are the many originals with some great melodies. I’m sure you will dig a deep dive in the 60s scene of Central America, when during the festivity day of the national patron people assisted processions with gay music of all kind. Enjoy! (Ps. I still haven’t discovered what "El Calambrina" means but it must have been a smash hit down there…)

update Misirlou - 25 Exotic Versions|
I have updated my collection of exotic versions of Misirlou adding 5 more tracks at https://michaelvee.livejournal.com/63742.html?view=1882622#t1882622
UC290 - 60s (mostly) Uncomped - Beat from the Boot, pt. 12|
Part 12 starts off with a true gem: I Rokketti from Civitavecchia, a group that was made up of (mostly) minor boys (15yo+), recorded live by no other than Sirs Paul McC and George H at the Blaue Peter in Hamburg when they toured Germany for six (!) years time! The tape has been buried in the dreck since 1962 (!) and was found by a German girl friend of the group. Se leggete l’italiano, dovete assolutamente comprare il libro “I Rokketti – Da Piazza Padella alla Reeperbahn – Curzio Editore, scritto egregiamente da loro cantante / bassista Mario Paparozzi.
Most of the artists of this new set were unknown to me, whereas some tracks are picked by some “stars” who left the middle of the road to venture in the Beat-field. I have to thank my friends at the fb page BEAT & ROCK’N’ROLL ITALIANO who have signaled many unheard tracks. Finally, I hope you may speak Italian to understand the lines of the last track which exactly says what I wish for my own funeral, mostly re: my last wish to the girls, I.e. to promise “they’ll give to my friends what they never gave to me….” (feel included!)01/ Rokketti, I - Don't go away (live in Hamburg) 02/ Johnny Morandi - Go Kart Twist 03/ Scotch - Zip-A-Dee-Du-Dai (UK)04/ Jimmy Fontana - Non scherzare con il fuoco 05/ Ravers - Grazie tante 06/ Gene Guglielmi - I Capelli Lunghi 07/ Nik Casablanca & New Blues - Balliamo il chè chè chè 08/ Incriveis, Os - Piangi con me (BRZ)09/ Planets - [Please come to me] (clip) 10/ Nuova Cricca, La - Stai su con il morale 11/ Ricky Gianco - Come una donna 12/ Hippies - L' inno degli Hippies 13/ Umberto Napolitano - Ferma la musica 14/ Dalton, I - Venus 15/ Marco Polo & Cinque del Sud - La Tua Ombra 16/ Carlo Danova's Group - Aah!

UC289 – 60s (mostly) Uncomped – US Garage Gems Vol. 42|
It seems that the river (which might have become a creek) of never compiled 60s Gems is still running fine, since Vol. 41 was posted just a few weeks ago. You might have noticed that there were no more official compilations issued by the big labels in the last years and I’m not sure about the reasons why not to publish new comps with unheard recordings, like the ones I have fished in the net. Copyright issues? Avaricious hoarders who will never share their goodies? Bad audio quality? At any rate, I’m sure you will enjoy 30 more Gems, all uncomped, and all worth to be feature in a compilation with the Garage Gems title. You will meet unknown groups (tracks #1, Alias#1, Tight Little Unit), groups which were really another group (The Manchesters aka The Chartbusters), the One and Only Billy Shears (seems that’s really him!), and P.J. Proby’s hairdresser (track 30; James "Spider" Barbour). In between a few (more or less fake) live tracks from TV. Detailed (i.e scarce) info and flashy band pics in the booklet (Do you ever read them..?). Have fun y’all (and thank all youtube cannels I have mentioned in the booklet)!

eYeGeNeYe productions proudly presents: Nippon Covers, pt. Two|Welcome to the second volume of Japanese Covers from Flexis. Again, these versions deliver a fresh breeze on famous (and maybe too-much-heard) staples, and what really surprises me once again is the fact that it’s the obvious or slight differences of interpretation that make me understand the Genius of the original songs. Probably it’s because you learn better from faults than from perfectly done. I ’m aware none of the versions I collected can reach or even top the originals which, admittedly, would be a hard challenge. First of all, groups have to win the different cultural background, so results will probably be like asking a punk group to do Waterloo Sunset… Secondly, these covers were recorded harshly in no time, mostly with ad-hoc bands (you probably won’t find any info on), and published on Flexi-discs to give away as sweepstakes with mags, hairsprays and whatever more Japanese pop products. So be patient with bad quality of recording and production. Finally, Japanese musicians had to face the language barrier and they did this by opting for the "short cut"-strategy. Although they would hardly understand the words they sang, the message comes through anyway. I’m sure you will dig the funky dada-English which add extra fun to this set. I must say it was not easy to transliterate the Japanese writing into the Western alphabet, and some names of groups and artists are best guess, read Google translations. Moreover, I had to sort out youtube posts that actually are 80s karaoke amateur singer voicing over backing tracks from the 60s, and coming 99% close to the originals. Last but not least, huge thanks go out to youtube channel カヴァー天国 who posted mostly all of the ultra rare discs and sure is doin’ a unique job over there in Japan.

UC288 a/b/c - Girls with a Beat; Vol. 16|
I’m happy to see , as usual, girls and ladies from all parts of the globe have gathered here to bring you joy and happiness once again. Even if they sing about their Pekinese dog, I immediately get knocked off the barstool by their fascinating voices and timbres. Like their male counterparts, singing styles vary much ranging from innocent to sultry and from elegant to angry and fro sweet to rough (although they will never sound like BlueCheer, I hope). So the red thread that keeps this set together is the fabulous female voices, and I don’t care about when they were recorded (as long as in the 60s), where they came from and if they were black or white or otherwise colored. So, as usual, since each tune is a gem in its own right, you’ll get them in an alphabetical (not chronological) order which creates nice changes in the overall hearing experience. A few live tracks, and TV-clips, will add extra fun, I assume. Finally, I hope you can deal with this new herd of female animals (in case you’re a man) and you will welcome your soul sisters (in the very improbably case you’re a woman). Get with it, boys and girls, and let me know what is you favorite track!

UC287 – 60s (mostly) Uncomped – High on Jesus!, pt. 4|Alleluia, and Glory to the watcher of the Holy Vaults’ forgotten treasures, i.e. Don Compilatius myself, who succeeded in digging up 30 relicts I’m sure you’ll want to worship. Part 4 starts in Italy and arrives – via Germany and the UK – in the US, so it might shed a good light on local differences of the genre. Italy, of course , is not only home of the Vatican but, moreover, had many pastors and parishes who understood the sign of the (Beat-) times giving their young disciples a chance to send out the message and hopefully recruit black sheep. Like it or laugh at it, it is that MESSAGE which inspires the musicians and gives the songs a special strength that differs from the Love, Dance&Romance formula. What also sets the xian groups apart is the fact that they do deliver JOY, at least, if you’re ready to receive their religious messages.A similar promotion of Xian music happened in the Youth Clubs and Cathedrals in Germany, and mostly England, whereas the States leaned more on the acoustic, folky side but also knew how to merge in traditions close to Choir singing - mostly Gospel and Soul – and sometimes even the church organ! It was not easy to separate the true from the fake, which means songs which carry a well felt religious content (i.e. the Message) vs. “God-help-me-get-my girl-back”-tunes which may also, in a poorer way, express a religious content. To avoid remaining doubts I have featured a few of those, decide with devotion.For the first time - and much like the great Late Lolly Pope used to do - I have incorporated some personal comments in the booklet since I hope they may be useful to accompany the holy libretto (don’t take them too seriously, tho’). So get down on your knees, praise the Lord above, pray hard and ask redemption for your sins!

eYeGeNeYe - Beat Wunderbar; Un - Lost Tommyknockers; RiP 14|Hail again to my spiritual guide, soul brother and inspiration aka the late The Lolly Pope, famous for his "Prae-Kraut Pandaemonium" compilations and his " Tommyknockers" installments. Doin’ this new selection I was feeling exactly like when we switched tracks and I would sometimes suggest some tunes to include. So I’m sure he will give his blessings and would have chosen each of the rare (and quite definitely uncomped!) Brit gems I am going to share with the devote community. In opposite to my last US Gems CD, this set sounds particularly British, at least I hope so. You’ll meet well known bands (like the Downliners Sect) who were published unbeknownst to them under a different name in Italy (The BlackPanthers), infamous punks who saw their recordings presented as "The Dave Clark Five", famous personalities like Elvis Costello’s own father (as "Frank Bacon"), pre Uriah Heep, Jethro Tull and Barkley James Harvest (forgive me, my Lolly Pope), the original Henry the VIIIth from 1961, Herman’s Hermits playing their asses off Live at the Cavern, (pardon my bad language by using the word “live”), plus a few audio tracks ripped off from private films and TV-shows. Many bands and artists I had never even heard of;
probably the Lolly Pope would have shed some knowledge. As usual, this installment comes with a l0 pg libretto with more information and band pics everybody should humbly read during the Service. So take a deep dive down to the forgotten relics, praise the Lolly Pope above (and his devote servant, Ätzbischof Don Compilatius), and dig this new set of fresh Manna from the British Beat Vaults! Halleluyeah!
