Jimmy Campbell - That's Right, That's Me



So far, there has never been released a career defining anthology of Jimmy Campbell. I guess he's a bit too "obscure", as Allmusic.com describe him. Unfortunately Campbell (4 January 1944 – 12 February 2007) never received the recognition he deserved during his short recording career, so I decided to make my own tribute to him here. His first 2 bands The Kirkbys and The 23rd Turn Off were featured in a fine collection released in 2004 by RPM Records, "The Dream of Michaelangelo", which I highly recommend. I've included here a few tracks from that collection, including The 23rd Turn Off's "Michael Angelo" (which Will Sergeant rates as among his top ten psychedelic records) and, in my opinion, the even better "Flowers are Flowering" which unfortunately was only ever recorded in demo form.

Campbell recorded 3 solo albums between 1969-1972, and 1 album with Rockin' Horse in 1971. If you like Abbey Road period Beatles or Badfinger you'll love their album "Yes It Is". A collection of "lost recordings 1965-1991", called "Troubadour", did appear in 2012, many of the early recordings actually appearing on the "The Dream of Michaelangelo" anthology. Although the live recordings in 1977 from "Troubadour" are interesting to hear, the quality of the recording is rather sub-standard and I decided not to include. A shame there are no other better quality live recordings out there... Anyway, like most of my compilations, album of origin (and year of release) I have tagged in the comments section of the files. Enjoy!

Peter Jefferies - Satellites and Sparks (best of 1987-2001)



I first came across Peter Jefferies on a Flying Nun compilation back in the 1980s, singing with This Kind of Punishment. I must admit at first I wasn't too taken by the song featured, "Immigration Song", I think it was the rather intense vocals I couldn't really get to grips with. But, I did find their music interesting so sought out their other albums. I soon grew to love Jefferies' vocals, at times like a cross between Peter Hammill and David Bowie when at their most manic. But when he sings in a lower range his voice is just delightful, some might even say seductive. 

As well as This Kind of Punishment I sought out his very first band, Nocturnal Projections, who are probably one of the finest post-punk bands to come from New Zealand. As much as I love those 2 bands, it's his solo work I've come to appreciate the most. Sadly Jefferies appears to have stopped releasing records since 2001, which is a great loss to the music world. So I've decided to celebrate his solo work, including collaborations with other artists, on this collection, with some of my favourite songs by him during this period. I hope you all enjoy!
