...BECAUSE SOME OF US THINK THAT THIS STUFF IS IMPORTANT
What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.

JACKIE LEE REVIEW

Jackie Lee
White Horses (CD)
(Gonzo Multimedia)
Ah, Jackie. Best remembered, among those who remember such things, for a couple of cult UK children’s TV themes, but worth enough to merit a respectable recording career, Jackie Lee released her debut album in 1968, on the heels of the title tack’s television fame.  The cover art (pictured) is repeated here,  but that’s not quite what we receive this time around.
Two songs are shorn from the LP, to be replaced by a clutch of stray 45s, both solo and with her beat boom era band, the Raindrops.  But no complaints because it’s all tight, bright, sixties pop, the kind of CD which should be released with the light scratch of vinyl and the sound of a period disc changer built into the grooves.
Hey kids, we’re having a teenaged dance party down at the youth club, and Brian’s big brother is bring some cider!  See you there!

CURRENTLY AVAILABLE FROM GONZO]
