Product Description

Buddy Britten was born in Liverpool but his music career got going down south with Impresario Reg Calvert as first guitar player with Vince Taylor then as band leader on Calvert s south coast package tours. Buddy s own band by 1962 was named The Regents and released singles through the Beat and R&B era mainly on Oriole and Pye s Piccadilly label. Like many 60 s outfits lasting a number of years on the circuit The Regents had an ever changing line up, including by late 1964 Nick Simper, later of Deep Purple on bass. (Same time Keith Moon was the drummer for two days having passed the audition but took up a simultaneous offer from The Who instead.) After the Beat era Buddy moved with the times looking to record a heavier sound. For two singles in 1967 his professional moniker changed to Simon Raven (later Raverne), after the British author of the same name. Later Buddy reverted to his real name and became a successful author in his own right namely Geoffrey Glover Wright.

Whatever your era or genre, record collectors await the release of hard-to-find material on CD with interest. This won't disappoint.

We first came across "Buddy Britten" in the early 1990s, when his "Star Band" was resident at a hotel in Jersey, Channel Islands. They did two sets on Friday & Saturday nights, the dance floor packed with holiday makers & a hard core of local residents, as the band played classic after classic. At a time when live music was giving way to "play-along to a tape", this was always a tight band, and it was clear to everyone there that "Buddy" was a highly talented act - be it on guitar, keyboard or with his powerful & accurate vocals.

Those roots are clearly visible on a number of the tracks on this CD, you can imagine what a great band they were "live" in their many forms. Strangely my favourite is "Empty Beaches", completely different to their core roots, more "New Vaudeville Express".

Simon Raverne's Star Band no longer play the Merton Hotel. Like so many record shops, venues & bands, all that is left are great memories.
