Sixties’ rockers Union Gap play The Royal British Legion, Thrift Road, Heath & Reach, this Saturday.
The Spencer Davis Group, “Keep On Running-The Collection” (Cherry Red / Press Play PRESS2CD)- The Spencer Davis Group emerged from the hinterlands of Birmingham in the mid-sixties with a soulful brand of white r&b which leaned heavily on the precocious talents of the multi-talented Steve Winwood, who was just seventeen years old when the band enjoyed their first chart-topper in 1965 with “Keep On Running.” This inexpensive anthology features alternate versions of some of their early hits culled from radio and TV broadcasts, alongside some of the more impressive album tracks that a later incarnation of the band captured for posterity after an increasingly disillusioned Winwood left the fold in 1967 to form the excellent Traffic.

“She’s So Fine-The Rise of the Girl Groups” (Fantastic Voyage FVTD 160)- This 3 CD set revives a string of timeless pop classics from the golden era of the female vocal group in the late fifties and early sixties, including offerings from The Crystals, The Chantels and the Marvelettes, whose infectious 1961 hit, “Please Mr. Postman” gave Tamla Motown its first US chart-topper. Their much more illustrious stable-mates The Supremes also make an appearance with two minor hits from the following year in the shape of “Your Heart Belongs To Me” and “Let Me Go The Right Way,” but the real stars of the show are New Jersey’s Shirelles, whose sizeable contribution to the proceedings includes “Dedicated To The One I Love” and Goffin-King’s sublime “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow.”
R.E.M. “Green” (Rhino Records)- Re-issue specialists Rhino Records have opted to mark the 25 Warner Bros. debut offering “Green” with the release of a compelling 2 record set featuring the re-mastered original album alongside a rousing concert recording culled from the penultimate date on the band’s 1989 world tour. The set list of their energised show in Greensboro, North Carolina sprinkled much loved old favourites such as “The One I Love” and “ Finest Work Song” amongst a batch of newly minted gems led by “Stand,” “Pop Song 89” and “Orange Crush” which captured this unique band at their most enigmatic and eclectic.
Three local bands take to the stage this Saturday as a taster to The Hare’s planned three-day arts festival.
