On 5/21/66 the Bob Dylan 45 “Rainy Day Women Nos. 12 and 35” charts at No. 7 in England.  Also on 5/21/66 The Rolling Stones 45 “Paint It Black” charts at No. 1 in England.  On 5/21/83 Yello “You Gotta Say Yes To Another Excess” LP charts at No. 65 in England.

I recently mail-ordered a CD from Japan called “Rock Rare Collection” (Toshiba TOCP-71486, released Feb. 2013):

JEFF BECK – Rock My Plimsoul (Single vers.)

YARDBIRDS – Little Games (Mono mix)

YARDBIRDS – Drinking Muddy Water (Mono mix)

YARDBIRDS – White Summer (Acoustic vers.) instrumental, sounds a bit like Led Zeppelin

JEFF BECK – Beck’s Bolero (Single vers.) instrumental

PAUL RODGERS – Always (presumably the singer of Free in ‘68 etc.)


ROD STEWART – I Just Got Some

SHOTGUN EXPRESS – I Could Feel The Whole World Turn Around

SHOTGUN EXPRESS – Curtains (Peter Bardens) instrumental

TONY MERRICK – Lady Jane (The Rolling Stones song)

HANS CHRISTIAN – Never My Love (Is this supposed to be ’68 Jon Anderson?)

GRAHAM BOND ORGANIZATION – Slipping & Sliding (instrumental)

GRAHAM BOND ORGANIZATION – Spanish Blues (instrumental)

GRAHAM BOND ORGANIZATION – It’s Happening (instrumental)

DUFFY POWER – I Saw Her Standing There (backed by the Graham Bond Quartet!)

THE NATURALS – I Should Have Known Better

THE GODS – Hey Bulldog (Ken Hensley of Uriah Heep doing a Beatles’ song)

This collection was compiled by Toshio Asami, with liner notes (in unreadable Japanese) by Kaz Akaiwa.

    Very cool idea, take a general era or style and round up a bunch of odds and ends. Sorta reminds me of that wonderful “Other Enz” collection that Raven did for the Split Enz family.

    I just saw I’d never seen here before; Hans Christian etc. And who can say no to previously unreleased Graham Bond Organization tracks?
