FLAMIN’ GROOVIES

FLAMIN’ GROOVIES – This Band is Red Hot 1969-1979 is the first ever definitive, single CD, multi-label collection of one of the greatest cult bands of all time. Featuring 24 tracks of passionate, street-smart, freewheeling, rambunctious rock ‘n’ roll, this is the very essence of manic garage rock and ‘60s-inspired power pop. With superb quality audio, deluxe booklet and detailed liner notes.

Between 1969 and 1979, the Groovies took the spirit of rock ‘n’ roll to new heights, remaining faithful to their rock roots while all around changed as the prevailing winds of music fashion blew. The band’s love and dedication to the celebrated artists of the ‘50s and ‘60s is reflected in these three-minute blasts of high-octane rock ‘n’ roll. From riotous rockabilly and raunchy Rolling Stones-influenced riff-rock to melodic Beatlesque power pop and chiming Byrds-inspired folk-rock, the Groovies music never outstays its welcome and still sounds amazingly fresh today.

Culled from seven era-defining albums recorded for Epic, Kama Sutra, United Artists and Sire (including Supersnazz, Flamingo, Teenage Head, Shake Some Action and Jumpin’ in the Night) all the band’s greatest tracks are present and correct: ‘Love Have Mercy’, ‘Second Cousin’, ‘Teenage Head’, High Flyin’ Baby’, ‘Slow Death’, ‘Shake Some Action’, ‘You Tore Me Down’, ‘Jumpin’ in the Night. “Flamin’ Groovies are one of America’s greatest, most influential and legendary cult bands” – All Music Guide.

    This Band is Red Hot is a great CD – a great round up of a great band. Fans will probably differ about what songs should have been put on the album [Feel a Whole Lot Better] and which ones should have been left off [Yesterday’s Numbers] but as a collection it does the job and as an introduction to the Flamin’ Groovies it’s the ticket.

    Ex-singer Groovies Chris Wilson is also back with a new album, Second Life. Details can be found at http://www.flamin-groovy.com
