July progressive

Enlarge this picture! Having started out as a skiffle act from Ealing and called The Playboys they then became an R&B combo, The Tomcats. John (Speedy) Keen, (Thunderclap Newman) was in them for a while. In 1966, The Tomcats went to Spain with a new line-up (one which become the future July one). As Los Tomcats, they got in the charts with four EPs, one of which was all in Spanish! They then returned to the UK in 1968, still basing themselves in Ealing and changed their name to July. As July, they recorded what later became one of the most sought-after British psychedelic sixties albums of all time. One that was originally released in the UK on Major Minor in 1968 and also issued in USA/Canada on Epic and even released in Brazil. The albums main appeal is its haunting brand of Psychedelia and Rev-Ola are delighted to announce that this special CD issue has four bonus tracks. The gorgeous package is also enhanced by a quantity of previously unpublished photographs and some highly informative CD booklet notes by 60s pop-sike expert David Wells.
