For the information of those interested - an explanation of the new collection.

The multis were in an old warehouse and had been, with hundreds of others, since the two Regent Sound Studios had been bought and all the tapes stored away in the 60s or 70s. Nobody knew of their existence until I got a call from a friend, fortunately employed to go through them and knowing my connection.

With delight we listened to the numerous tapes and takes - some wonderful out takes (we were SO public school - even my engineer Tom Allom was an Old Carthusian - ex Charterhouse - he went on to become a top producer himself with Judas Priest and others).

I could not believe how fantastic Peter's voice was (the reason I signed the group in the first place). And the songs are really great too. I think it is a tremendous album.

We have done several total remixes (some simply featuring the brilliant vocals a cappella) - some are stereo mixes of the original tracks (not fake stereo from the mono mixes); some are as they were for comparison (or because I felt they still sound great).

All this was done with my friend Steve Levine in his superb studio up in Liverpool (Steve is also a top producer and makes the wonderful Record Producer series for the BBC).

At present it can be bought through iTunes, Amazon and heard on Spotify. 50 Years Ago.
