5.0 out of 5 stars Great 60s sound - get it! 10 Mar 2011
Format:Audio CD
Go and get it - great sound. Probably one of the most underrated bands of that era. Stars only in Germany (Star-Club scene). Most people will know their smash hit Peter Gunn, but there is a lot more to discover on this lovely made Bear Family Release. Great booklet.

5.0 out of 5 stars gtreat sixties band now on cd 20 Nov 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
At last something by the Remo Four on cd, no need to remortgage your house tracking down vinyl all the tracks plus extras are here in glorious sound. Complete with booklet and very reasonably priced at around 10 got to be worth a listen, if only for Peter Gunn alone.

4.0 out of 5 stars A GOOD BAND FROM THE MERSEY BEAT ERA 15 Jun 2012
By Stuart Jefferson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is another good example of British beat music from the 60's that people interested in that period should check out. The band had good instrumental chops, and the vocals had a slight blue-eyed soul feel to them. The use of an organ gave the band a slight jazzy sound that was (is) very appealing.

THE REMO FOUR (named after the San Remo Music Festival) backed a number of artists (Gene Pitney, Cilla Black among others) in their ten year career, and played at the Star Club in Germany, where they were more popular than in their own country, even though in 1961, the band rose to number three on the Mersey Beat poll. But the band never had any real hits (except for "Peter Gunn"), primarily because they played live a great deal and didn't have time to concentrate on recording commercial singles. This set hovers somewhere between 3 1/2 and 4 "stars" in relation to similar bands, and depending on your penchant for this period of music.

The band had two members that went on to relative fame-Tony Ashton (keyboards/vocals) and Roy Dyke (drums), and also included Phil Rogers (bass) who replaced Don Andrew, and Colin Manley (guitar)-but the band had a number of personnel changes early on throughout their career.

This set has both original songs and covers ("No Money Down", "Rock Candy", "Roadrunner", "Jive Samba"), "Peter Gunn", and a couple of others. But the blend of originals and covers lets you hear what people were listening to during that era. And the band stamped their sound on each song-especially the covers. Their jazzy organ and guitar playing and soulful vocals were really hip, and made them popular with audiences wherever they played.

Anyone who's into this period of British music should check this out. They were a cut above most (if not all) the so-called second tier bands of the day. And the best of their music still sounds good today. This is one collection that shouldn't slip between the cracks of time and disappear.

The disc snaps inside a cardboard book-style holder. The attached booklet (13 pages in English-13 in German) has an essay on both the period and the band, including quotes from band members. There's also some good photos of the band in both color and b & w, along with album cover reproductions. Bear Family Records has done another good job in packaging this great 60's music-check it out.
