ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
From allmusic.com- a rave review, September 2, 2002

The British Invasion All-Stars are a 21st century band with a '60s sound, which isn't surprising because all of its members are veteran rockers who belonged to various '60s bands (some more prominent than others). In rock circles, the term British Invasion is used to describe the wave of British rock bands that made its presence felt in the '60s. Rock was born in the United States, but when the Beatles and many other British acts hit big in the '60s, it was clear that England had become a major player in the rock & roll field.

Formed in 2001, the British Invasion All-Stars boasts former-Yardbird Jim McCarty on drums and lead vocals, ex-Procol Harum member Matthew Fisher on electric Hammond organ, and Eddie Phillips (formerly of the Creation) on lead guitar. The three other members are Ray Phillips, of the Nashville Teens fame, on lead vocals, and two ex-members of the Downliners Sect: rhythm guitarist Don Craine and bassist Keith Grand (who contributes background vocals and shares the lead vocals with Phillips and McCarty).

The British Invasion All-Stars' self-titled debut album, which was released on the independent Mooreland Street label in 2002, shows no awareness of the alternative rock sounds of the early 2000s; the band is totally unaffected by any of the punk, new wave, post-punk, pop-metal, or alternative rock that came after the '60s.

From covers of well-known songs by the Yardbirds ("Shapes of Things") and The Spencer Davis Group (Gimme Some Lovin) to new material, everything on the British Invasion All-Stars' first album is unapologetically '60s-minded. The CD boasts several guest musicians who have strong '60s credentials, including bassist Noel Redding (who was one-third of the Jimi Hendrix Experience) and two ex-members of the Pretty Things: Dick Taylor and Phil May. - Alex Henderson

The British Invasion All-Stars album is currently being heard on XM Satelite Radio's 'Deep Tracks' station.

"Eddie Phillips (of Creation) is a cross between Jimmy Page and Pete Townshend" - Shel Talmy, Producer of The Who/Kinks

The British Invasion All-Stars disc is also available as a digital download from Napster, Apple iTunes, MusicMatch and many others. Buy the songs you like for 99 cents or less.

"shakin' all over" is a johnny kidd track
SHAKIN'ALL OVER was written and recorded by a british band,
JOHNNY KIDD AND THE PIRATES - it's their song! the guess who may have covered it, certainly pete townsend copped part of the signature guitar lick for the solo of can't explain, but this record predates the british invasion and the beat groups. this is british rock 'n' roll, worthy of comparison only to billy fury or vince taylor and the playboys. no self respecting pub jukebox was without SHAKIN' ALL OVER! regards. s.h. www.stevehooker.co.uk

I'm happy
I've been long time looking for this CD, because it was not easy to get it in Germany (to a fair price!) And I'm not disappointed. The McCarty songs are my highlights.

The Record Changer

Energy, Spirit and Passion
This music needs to be played with energy and spirit and passion. The British Invasion All-Stars bring all that and more to this excellent collection. They sound as if they're having the time of their lives, and you will, too when you hear it.

listening to a transistor radio my friend exclaimed that this is the best song it was I'm A Man in 1966 I think, I'm pumpin through six speakers now at 200 watts

Shakin All Over
Just a word to clear up remarks about 'Shakin All Over'

The first recording of this song was by Johnny Kidd and The Pirates NOT by The WHO or The Guess Who. Original Pirates guitarist Mick Green (who is also featured on Paul McCartney's Run Devil Run album) recreates the hit here with The British Invasion All-Stars.

Cheers,

i purchased this aslbum because i like british music
i was not disappointed in purchasing this cd the music is great. it goes to show that the old masters rock better than these new band with their posturing and no musical talent. i love pure 60s rock and roll. the new music out there stinks theres not one band out there that agrees with me unless its one of the sixties band putting out a new product that i can sink my teeth into.i played this cd maybe 20 times and it gets better the more i hear it.good job guys.

Donx

good renditions, not much progression in arrangements
For one thing, Shakin' All Over' is not originally by the Who but by a Canadian Band the Guess Who who released it as Chad Allan and the Expressions. It does however sound british. It's worth the price as a album of good songs played well. The originals hold more energy though.
