Motivational Monday

Vinyl Countdown, New Plymouth, 4 Mar

Vinyl Countdown is another phoenix rising from the Real Groovy ashes. Like most of the shops in NZ I visited, VC mixes new and secondhand vinyl in the same bins, something I detest as it makes flipping through records more difficult than it should be.  249 more words

Handbags and Gladrags

Some songs don’t just seem to have been around for almost all of my life, they actually have been. First recorded in 1967 by Manfred Mann, (it was written by Mike D’Abo, their vocalist) the first hit version of this song was released later that year, by the English solo artist, Chris Farlowe, and also produced by D’Abo. 272 more words

A Personal History of the British Record Business 6 - Gerry Bron (2)

I think she and Gene Pitney got very friendly – she was having problems with Andrew Loog Oldham – and she phoned us up one day in tears and said “I don’t want Andrew to manage me any more, but I don’t know what to do – will you come and talk to Oscar, my solicitor?” We sat there and Oscar said “I think it’s a very good idea that Gerry and Lilian look after you” and she said “but they can’t be my manager!”, and he said “if they’re not going to be your manager, what are they going to do?” She said “I want them to look after me but I don’t want them to be my manager”. 1,813 more words
