Deep Joy [Delo-2, 1CD]

Compilation of tracks from radio and TV programmes. Very good radio/TV broadcasts.

Movie goers might remember that 2009 movie, The Boat That Rocked, about a pirate radio station operating from a boat. The true-life equivalent was, of course, Radio Caroline, achored three miles off the coast of Felixstowe, Suffolk, England, just outside British territorial waters. Now lumped as part of the British Invasion, there was a time when the Small Faces were considered “hip” and “cool” that pirate radio even cared about. After all, guitarist-vocalist Steve (Humble Pie) Marriott and bassist Ronnie Lane were in the line-up.

If Lazy Sunday doesn’t bring about that summery feel, then there’s still If I Were A Carpenter (giving the Johnny Cash classic a real rock out) and Itchycoo Park to give old-time psychedelia fans some needles and pins. As someone commented at Bootlegzone: “It’s still worth a listen. Stay cool won’t you.”

Thanks to Philip Cohen for sharing the tracks.

Note: A longtime music fan, Philip Cohen was a contributor to the now-defunct ICE Magazine and compiled the boxsets for The Yardbirds, The Small Faces, Humble Pie and Nice.

  2. I think that Small Faces were very underrated. The 67-68 stuff is really good.Even the last track of “extracts” here shows how creative and experimental these guys were, as the extracts are very different from the released versions.This is a welcome addition to the collection.Excellent post!Thanks so much for this Phil & BigO!

  7. Thanks so much for this, Philip!!! More Small Faces and Humble pie!!

  8. Thanks for the great Small Faces post. Looks like some of this is repeated on the “There Are But Three” release on the Third Eye label, but will still fill a few gaps. Also, I think the Colour Me Pop sessions were actually the band lip-sycing over the record…check out the video on Youtube. Still, any Small Faces is good, so going to give this a DL and a listen. Thanks for sharing and also for the great scans.

  9. Four little guys with enormous soul.See on Youtube the clip of the marvellous “The autumn stone”.
    “If I were a carpenter” : Tim Hardin .
    …and forever,as Steve said during their shows “Come on children!”.Thank You

  10. Johnny Cash may have covered If I Were A Carpenter much later, and of course Bobby Darin had the hit with it, but let’s not forget that it was written and recorderd first by the late great Tim Hardin.

  11. Great post! Anyone have the correct back cover? Not bitchin’, just asking.

    By Reed Wehrley on Jul 2, 2011

  12. It appears that Tracks 7 & 18 are not now working. A pity - because Mad John is excellent and I wanna compare Hey Girl with the “Them” version.

    Anyway thanks for all the wonderful downloads - If You want any Frank Zappa - Captain Beefheart or Van Morrison - I have many shows.
