40 Jahre Star-Club  -  3 sensationelle CD-Premieren

Am 13. April 1962 öffnete der Star-Club im Hamburger Rotlichtviertel St. Pauli seine Pforten, die Beat-Musik hatte ihr erstes Zuhause. Um dem deutschen Publikum von Beginn an internationales Flair präsentieren zu können, kam es zu einer Kooperation mit der englischen Hafenstadt Liverpool. Dort schossen neue Bands wie Pilz(köpf)e aus dem Boden, von denen viele ihren ersten musikalischen Gehversuche aber nicht am Mersey River, sondern an der Elbe wagten: Zu groß war die heimische Konkurrenz, zu niedrig waren die Gagen – Hamburg, so hieß der Ausweg für viele, die dann in den Clubs der Hansestadt durch ein Stahlbad gingen, sich an sieben Tagen pro Woche mit jeweils stundenlangen Auftritten beim Publikum zu behaupten versuchten und auf Interesse seitens der Plattenfirmen hofften.

Schon bevor die legendären 'Star-Club Records' 1964 auf den Plan traten, waren drei der Liverpooler Urgesteine, die im Club zu den umjubelten Attraktionen zählten, auf anderen Labels mit Singles, Vier-Track-EPs bzw. Langspielplatten zu hören:


HOWIE CASEY & THE SENIORS
THE SEARCHERS
THE MERSEYBEATS

Ihre zum Teil 40 Jahre jungen Aufnahmen kommen jetzt anläßlich des Star-Club-Jubiläums erstmals in vorzüglicher Klangqualität, mit seltenen (sogar unveröffentlichten) Bonus-Titeln und im Original-Cover auf den Markt – viele Songs erleben dabei ihre Weltpremiere auf CD!

HOWIE CASEY
Der Klasse-Saxophonist begann schon 1959 in der Band Derry & The Seniors in Liverpool. Im Januar 1961 machte er sich mit den Seniors selbständig, und schon im Jahr darauf erschien seine erste (und einzige!) LP – ein hochexplosives Gemisch aus Beat, Rock 'n' Roll und Twist, interpretiert von einer Spitzen-Band, gespickt mit solistischen Assen. Später war Casey Dauergast auf Hamburger Bühnen und ist bis heute ein gefragter Sessionmusiker, der auch schon von Paul McCartney angefordert wurde. Die neue CD präsentiert den atemberaubendsten, wildesten Casey-Sound, den es je gab – mit der kompletten, sehr gesuchten Fontana-LP (inkl. Bony Moronie und dem Boll Weevil Song), zwei Extra-Tracks von Singles sowie zwei bislang unbekannten Archiv-Funden.

THE SEARCHERS
Ebenfalls bereits in den späten 50ern gegründet (und wenig später Begleiter des vergessenen Sängers Johnny Sandon), kam das Liverpooler Quartett im Juli 1962 in den Star-Club, wo später die ersten Aufnahmen entstanden. Glänzte die noch heute weltweit aktive Top-Band ab 1965 mit zahlreichen Folkrock-Hits, steht das Star-Club-Material für schnellen, schnörkellosen, unbehauenen Beat der Gründertage. Sämtliche Songs für das Philips-Label wurden auf der brandneuen CD untergebracht: eine Original-LP, Single-A-& B-Seiten sowie verstreutes Material von Compilations; alles eingespielt bei nur einer Session am 1. März 1963 im Star-Club. Hier gibt es ein unverfälschtes Wiederhören mit Band-Klassikern wie Sweets For My Sweet, Ain’t That Just Like Me, Sweet Nothin’s, Beautiful Dreamer und vielen anderen.

THE MERSEYBEATS
Sie entstanden 1962 aus den Amateur-Combos The Mavericks und The Pacifics in Liverpool und feiern – noch immer aktiv – in diesem Jahr ebenfalls 40. Geburtstag. Die vorliegende CD ist ein Novum: Weltweit gibt es erstmalig sämtliche 31 von der Band eingespielten Songs auf einer Einzel-CD! Darunter sind frühe Nummern wie Fortune Teller und Mister Moonlight, die sie schon im Star-Club zu unbestrittenen Publikumslieblingen gemacht hatten, erfolgreiche englische Chart-Hits wie I Think Of You, It’s Love That Really Counts und Wishin‘ And Hopin‘ und sogar ihre beiden deutschsprachigen Aufnahmen Nur unsere Liebe zählt und Nur du allein, die in Sammlerkreisen als Vinyl-Single für mehrere hundert Euro gehandelt werden.

Interpreten-Beschreibung "Merseybeats"

The Merseybeats  

I Think Of You – The Complete Recordings

It’s Love That Really Counts, I Think Of You and Wishin’ And Hopin' are just some of the attractive, haunting hits that made The Merseybeats one of the most popular of all the great Liverpool groups. They emerged at the same time as The Beatles and for a while threatened to rival them as heroes of the Mersey scene.

The founders of the group were Tony Crane (vocal, lead guitar) and Billy Kinsley (vocal, bass). As Liverpool school kids they listened to Elvis Presley and Little Richard and dreamt of becoming pop stars themselves. While still at school Tony (16) and Billy (15) formed a vocal duo called The Mavericks. When they saw The Beatles performing at The Cavern in 1962 they were blown away and decided to form their own group. The line-up included Tony and Billy, David Elias (guitar, vocal) and Frank Sloane (drums). For a while they were known as The Pacifics, then Aaron Williams and John Banks replaced Elias and Sloane and they changed their name to The Mersey Beats in February 1962.

In April 1962 the group played at The Cavern for the first time and secured a lunchtime residency. Tony and Billy gave up their day jobs as clerks in order to concentrate on a musical career. It became their proud boast that they supported The Beatles at The Cavern on more occasions than any other group. The next step was to shorten the name to The Merseybeats and the hot young act was signed to the Fontana label in June 1963. They were even managed by Beatles’ mentor Brian Epstein for a while, but decided to split from Brian after a disagreement about their stage image.

The Merseybeats’ first hit was an excellent 'reading' of the Hal David and Burt Bacharach song It's Love That Really Counts that got to #24 in the UK singles charts in September 1963. But their biggest hit was I Think Of You written by Peter Lee Stirling, which shot to #5 in January 1964. Both tracks were also recorded for a single in the German language, Nur unsere Liebe zählt/Nur du allein, a sought-after collectors’ item these days.

These haunting, yet lusty vocal performances epitomised the character of Liverpool's pop scene. Strength, romanticism and a down to earth attitude prevailed. A sense of humour and cheeky confidence also helped make the rest of the world sit up and take notice. Soon The Merseybeats were touring Britain and Europe, playing to hysterical hordes of screaming fans.

Billy and Tony continued to enjoy chart success and Don't Turn Around' got to #13 in April 1964. But the rollercoaster ride of stardom had taken its toll on the young musicians. Billy Kinsley left for a while to recover and subsequently formed an outfit called the Kinsleys. Meanwhile The Merseybeats' Wishin' And Hopin' got to #13 in July that year. Last Night (I Made A Little Girl Cry), was not quite so successful and just scraped into the Top Forty in November.

The group's only album, 'The Merseybeats' (1964) featured standards and ballads like Rodgers & Hammerstein's Hello, Young Lovers. However, an EP titled 'On Stage', although not 'live' the title reminded Johnny Gustafson that their 'live' performances were much tougher. Gustafson toured and recorded with The Merseybeats during the period Billy was out of the group. He also wrote some of the material the band used on the studio album. "I think we made the record in ten minutes" , laughs Johnny. "Fontana didn’t want to spend any money. They just wanted to knock an LP out quickly, to capitalise on the hit singles." Johnny (born August 18, 1942) had been a member of such early Liverpool bands as Cass & The Casanovas and The Big Three, a powerful unit that often played The Star-Club, Hamburg.

Some forty years after these events, Johnny Gustafson lives peacefully in Whitstable, Kent, but has fond memories of the crazy Sixties. "I joined The Merseybeats in the New Year of 1964, just after The Big Three had split up. Brian Griffiths the guitarist and I decided to team up with another drummer and we drove around Europe in search of gigs. We went to Copenhagen and Hamburg and ended up in a Frankfurt club called the Arcadia. Then we got fired for being too loud. It was ridiculous. I ended up singing without a microphone, but the club owner wouldn’t have it and he fired us. Just before we were due to quit, in walked a couple of The Merseybeats and their manager.

"Their bass player Billy had decided to quit for some reason and Tony Crane and Aaron Williams asked me to replace him. The group were very young when it all started to happen for them. I remember them telling me they had supported Little Richard at the Tower Ballroom in New Brighton when Billy was still only sixteen. The Merseybeats were supposed to be a ballad style group. They were known for their vocal harmonies. But it turned out their stage act was quite wild and raucous. They'd play Little Richard and Bo Diddley numbers and they were an extremely loud, roaring band. The Big Three were also known for being a loud band, but I didn't tell Tony we had just been fired! I played my first gig with The Merseybeats the day after I came back to London from Frankfurt. The line up was myself, Tony, Aaron Willams and John Banks, who died in 1988. Tony was a very friendly 'Scouser' and I slotted in with the group very well."

Crane and Gustafson are credited with quite a few of the compositions on this CD, including Really Mystified, Milkman and See Me Back. Says Johnny: "Tony and I decided on a 'Lennon & McCartney' style split when we wrote these songs, although that didn’t necessarily indicate who wrote what. 'Really Mystified' was the first song I ever wrote when I was 16 and living in Liverpool. I just changed the lyrics for this version. It was originally called 'Baby Please Don't Go' would you believe. We recorded this version as a B-side of a single in a little studio in Bond Street. 'Milkman' was written in a hotel room in Lancaster Gate while I was sitting on the bed."
