The Merseybeats are a Merseybeat band that emerged from the Liverpool scene in the early 1960s, performing at The Cavern Club along with The Beatles, Gerry & The Pacemakers and other similar artists and remains active until today. The current line-up is: Tony Crane (founder member) lead vocals and lead guitar; Billy Kinsley (founder member) lead vocals and rhythm guitar; Bob Packham (joined 1974) backing vocals and bass guitar; Dave Goldberg keyboards and lead guitar (joined 2000); and Lou Rosenthal (joined 2000) drums. They signed a recording contract with Fontana and had their first hit single in 1963 with "It's Love That Really Counts", followed in 1964 by their million-selling recording "I Think of You" which gained them their first gold disc. The Merseybeats appeared regularly at Liverpool's Cavern Club, and they claim to have appeared there with The Beatles on more occasions than any other band from that era. They were also successful abroad, touring in Germany and the US in 1964, and having their own Merseybeats Show on Italian television.

Rod Piazza is an American blues harmonica player and singer. In the mid 1960s, Piazza formed his first band The House of DBS, which later changed its name to the Dirty Blues Band. The band signed with ABC-Bluesway and released two albums in 1967 and 1968. The band broke up in 1968, and Piazza formed Bacon Fat that year. Piazza's idol and mentor, George "Harmonica" Smith joined the band and they had a "dual harp" sound. Bacon Fat released two albums the following two years. The Los Angeles' blues band Bacon Fat was essentially a vehicle for Rod Piazza and his superb `chromatic' harmonica playing - loud, live and gutsy! The band line-up on this disc includes Buddy Reed and Gregg Schaefer on guitars, J.D. Nicholson on Piano with Jerry Smith on bass and Dick Innes on drums. 01 - Up The Line 02 - Boom, Boom (Out Go The Lights) 03 - Small's On 53Rd 04 - She's A Wrong Woman 05 - I Need Your Love 06 - Juicy Harmonica 07 - Nobody But You 08 - Telephone Blues 09 - You're So Fine 10 - Too Late LINK

Demos of baroque pop songs with a Kinks-style flair for decrepit Brit society lyrics from a post-art school songwriting team in midlands UK, whose singles were played by Honeybus members & studio string session players. Sixteen tracks cut across 1967-68 by one of the most enigmatic UK psych-pop acts, who recorded two highly regarded singles for Polydor before disappearing forever. This set features "Esprit de Corps', "Your Servant Stephen' and two versions of the classic "Mazy' as well as twelve previously unreleased tracks that confirm the Peep Show to have been an extraordinary, even unique group who boasted a peculiar lyrical vision and idiosyncratic pop sensibilities. 1000 numbered copies on 190gm vinyl.

Hailing from Detroit City, hard rockers Third Power were led by singer/guitarist Drew Abbott (later to become a longtime member of Bob Seger & the Silver Bullet Band), along with bassist Jem Targal and drummer Jim Craig. Third Power formed in 1969 and quickly emerged as a favorite on the local club circuit thanks to the band's hard rock, bone-rattling sound and their influence from such three-person bands as Cream or the Jimi Hendrix Experience. In 1970 the album Believe was recorded for the Vanguard label but it was deemed too heavy for the label's direction and lacked the support that could have made it more of a hit. This decision by Vanguard to drop the band from their roster almost immediately after the album's release made it an instant collectable.(AV) 01 - Gettin' Together 02 - Feel So Lonely 03 - Passed By 04 - Lost In a Daydream 05 - Persecution 06 - Comin' Home 07 - Won't Beg Any More 08 - Crystalline Chandelier 09 - Like Me Love Me LINK
