Round Amen Corner – The Complete Deram Recordings

CD (Item 609833) Deram/RPM (UK), Late 60s — Condition: New Copy
Out Of Stock


5.00 10

Sweet jangle pop from Amen Corner – one of the sunniest UK groups of the late 60s! The group checked in big with their hit "Bend Me Shape Me" – and follow through here with an equally catchy, equally groovy set of tracks – tunes that really let them move past the straighter format of a hit, and work through a whole range of excellent modes in the space of an album! There's a much more expansive style here than we'd expect – as even familiar tunes are handled with playful arrangements and offbeat instrumental flourishes – more than enough to take a core mod pop groove, and push it into some cool pop psych territory. Titles include "Expressway To Your Heart", "Good Times", "Lost & Found", "Gin House", "Something You've Got", "Judge Rumple Crassila", and "Bend Me Shape Me". CD features bonus tracks added to the original Deram album – including "The World Of Broken Hearts", "Nema", "Satisnek The Job's Worth", "Run Run Run", and "High In The Sky".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
