Tintern Abbey

This photograph is of Tintern Abbey 1968/9, and appears to be a signed publicity shot, being the third incarnation of the band.

My thanks to Damian Jones for this.

You can hear both sides of their only published single from an Emidisc acetate HERE

RESPECT - Original line-up circa 1966/7. With thanks to Paul Russell

I am fortunate in being able to bring you 2 previously unseen photographs of the High Wycombe  band 'Respect' whose acetate Santa Lucia I previously posted  and which you can now hear along with four Respect compositions on Psychedelic Schlemiels 4 (Wooden Hill).

Many thanks to original band member Paul Russell for sending me these and granting me permission to publish them here.  Regarding the photographs and origination of the band, Paul says:-

"My role in the band was nothing extraordinary, I was as suggested previously and original co-founder with Blackie, and co-writer of 'Nothing' I played mainly rhythm guitar when Mick joined the band as he was a little more versatile than I so he was appointed Lead guitarist, I sang lead vocals on a couple of songs one namely 'All or Nothing' the superb Small Faces hit and Mick and I sang BV's on most others, apart from this my role nothing too noteworthy. I played many of the High Wycombe Town Hall functions as support act to the named artists of the day, Small Faces, Geno Washington & Ram Jam Band, The Move, The Who I believe from memory and a fair few others that escape me at present..."

Pussyfoot 'Dark Star'

Please accept my apologies for those of you trying to hear this acetate. I lost many of my music links and am gradually working to put this right.

Normal service will resume shortly.

The Pussyfoot tracks are now up and running, although I still have some others to do.
