    Hold On

    [engl] Evolving from The Sweet Feeling, a band who rubbed shoulders with The Beatles and most of the stars of the nascent Swingin? London scene (due to band member Steve Brendell work for Brian Epsteins Nems Enterprises), Ruperts People were the quintessential UK 60s mod- psych band. They had the look, they had many famous friends (Paul McCartney was one of their biggest fans) and a set of terrific tunes. But somehow they never made it big time. On this vinyl compilation (1966- 69), you?ll find most of their legendary 45 sides, from freakbeat / mod- psych anthems - ?Hold On? and ?Dream in my mind? - , to amazing psych pop numbers - the phasing fuelled ?I can show you?, ?Charles Brown? and ?All so long ago? (the later taken from their first 45 under the Sweet Feeling name) - plus delicious flower- power / baroque psychedelia - ?Prologue to a magic world? and ?Reflections of Charles Brown. Some rare recordings have also been included: ?Flying High? is a previously unreleased instrumental taken from a demo acetate, that makes it here on vinyl for the first time. ?Reflecting? and ?You can?t always get what you want? are live tracks recorded in 1969 and show the most progressive sound of the band with long guitar / organ passages. The confusing Ruperts People story (with links to bands like Les Fleur De Lys and The Iveys / Badfinger) is set straight on the extensive liner notes by band member Rod Lynton, included on a 4- page insert along with many unseen pictures. Remastered sound, old- styled backflap sleeve. 180gr vinyl.
