Pretty much as Alan stepped in, John stepped out — his career as a composer of music for major films becoming a dominant force and, it was from this merry-go-round, that The Alan Bown Set! He was one of the house producers for Pye working under Tony Hatch.
My Friend - The Alan Bown!* - Kick Me Out , that was my first time in a proper studio and working with a proper producer. And then, of course, we set in to the gigging scenario. For every major venue the group played there were sometimes seen in the most unlikely of places — such as a village hall in New Erswhick just outside York, the venue for that particular night being named The Tinned Chicken.
We used to rehearse at a place in Hanwell. We were just getting busier and busier - the Tears - George Russell - Easy Listening live thing was growing and growing and growing. Before the year was out, however, yet another personnel change occurred as Tony Catchpole replaced Pete Burgess on guitar. Paul Norton — a young Chesterfield-born artist — was cajoled into painting the walls black and put exotic murals on the walls and the legend of the Mojo club was born.
The album was produced by Mike Hurst — a former member of The Springfields. When that group fell apart inhe formed a group of his own with Albert Lee, Jimmy Page and Tony Ashton but, despite the stellar talent involved, they too found little success.
But, between Outward Bown and the next album we did get to have roadies. Bob Pridden was away with The Who and always coming home with a suitcase full of albums. Doubtless a public relations exercise in satisfying honour on both sides since that self-same announcement trumpeted the arrival of the former Mandrake Paddlesteamer vocalist Robert Palmer together with news that The Alan Bown! His band was called The Abre Los Ojos - Dark Sanctuary - Les Mémoires Blessées. The Alan Bown!
However, Robert jumped ship as soon as the album had been completed and Gordon Neville re-recorded all of the vocal tracks. A single Pyramid followed before yet another personnel change that saw Andy Brown come in on bass. Minor title differences on the front cover to the track titles on both back sleeve and label for both acts. Comes complete with a 24 page booklet featuring rare photographs and liner notes by Nigel Lees.
The Casuals were a British group from Lincoln, best known for their 2 hit Jesamine. Inthey switched to Decca scored their one and only huge hit with Jesamine and this - their only album - was released in Jess HOME.
