Shut Down Volume 2 is the fifth studio album by The Beach Boys, and the first of four they would release in 1964. The album's "Volume 2" refers to it being a follow-up to the 1963 hot rod compilation Shut Down, released by the band's label, Capitol Records, which included "409" and "Shut Down" but was not a Beach Boys album. Shut Down Volume 2 hit #13 in the US charts during a chart stay of 38 weeks.

Billy Fury, was an internationally successful English pop singer from the late 1950s to the early 1960s, and remained an active songwriter until the 1980s. Rheumatic fever, which he first contracted as a child, damaged his heart and ultimately contributed to his death. An early British rock and roll (and film) star, he equalled The Beatles' record of 24 hits in the 1960s, and spent 332 weeks on the UK charts, without a chart-topping single or album. Allmusic journalist, Bruce Eder, stated, "His mix of rough-hewn good looks and unassuming masculinity, coupled with an underlying vulnerability, all presented with a good voice and some serious musical talent, helped turn Fury into a major rock and roll star in short order". Others have suggested that it was Fury's "Elvis Presley-influenced, hip-swivelling, and at times highly suggestive stage act." The Sound Of Fury was the first album released by Billy Fury in 1960. Described as "the best rock & roll album to come out of England's original beat boom of the late 1950s", every one of the ten songs was written by Fury, whereas the debut albums of most artists contain covers of already-popular songs. The album was recorded in Decca Studio 3, West Hampstead, London, on 14 April 1960. It featured Joe Brown on guitar, Reg Guest on piano, and bassists Bill Stark or Alan Weighell. Andy White, known for his performance in The Beatles' first single "Love Me Do", is the drummer on the album. Providing backing vocals were the Four Jays.

Fever Tree is a former American psychedelic rock band of the 1960s, chiefly known for their anthemic 1968 hit, "San Francisco Girls (Return of the Native)" (#91 Pop Singles). The band hailed from Houston, Texas and started in 1966 as folk rock outfit, The Bostwick Vines. They changed their name to Fever Tree a year later after the addition of keyboard player Rob Landes. Their fifteen minutes of fame arrived when their song "San Francisco Girls (Return of the Native)" reached #91 in the U.S. charts, sometime in late 1968. Like most of the band's material, it was written by the couple of Scott and Vivian Holtzman, who also were their producers. This four-minute track captured all the band's trademarks: Dennis Keller's incantation-like vocals, the quick shifting between slow parts with an almost sacral feeling and faster, more rock-oriented parts, and especially the searing guitar work by Michael Knust. Fever Tree also released their self-titled debut album, Fever Tree, in 1968, which charted at #156. Dennis Keller - vocals, Michael Stephen Knust - guitar, Rob Landes - synthesizer, organ, piano, E.E. "Bud" Wolfe - bass guitar and John Tuttle - drums.

McKendree Spring was a folk-rock band. The band consisted of Fran McKendree (vocals & guitar), Fred Holman (bass), Dr. Michael Dreyfuss (electric violin, viola, Moog, Arp), Martin Slutsky (electric guitar). Christopher Bishop replaced Holman on bass as of the 1973 release Spring Suite. McKendree Spring was certainly not your ordinary American folk-rock group. They didn't take influences from the Byrds or CSNY. Dr. Michael Dreyfuss played violin, but you couldn't compare them to It's a Beautiful Day. The fact the group hailed from Upstate New York meant they didn't have to play by California rules. The band frequently had no drummer (although several of their albums did have drums, Spring Suite was not one of them). They released their first album in 1969 on Decca, and were often called the Three Dog Night of folk rock, likely because they had a habit of covering other people's songs, usually from singer/songwriters, like Neil Young's "Down by the River" and James Taylor's "Fire and Rain". But unlike Three Dog Night, who were obviously wanting big time commercial AM radio success (which they did), McKendree Spring didn't. They pretty much kept an East Coast cult following, mainly of the college crowd. 1973's Spring Suite was their fourth album, released on the MCA label.(Benjamin Miler)

Hard Prog Rock band from Glasgow, Lanarkshire, United Kingdom. The best band among those who recorded for Jim West; they hailed from Glasgow and wove psychedelic textures rent by hardblues riffs played with punk aptitude. Collectors' initiative dug out of the vaults this submerged jewel originally taped at Central Scotland Studios, Falkirk in 1971.
