Barefaced and provocative in their approach, John's Children mobilized their rather casual style of creativity to produce a handful of outstanding mid 60's singles. The best of these were easily the equal of contemporary 45s by the Who and the Kinks and they also represented something new, a moment when psychedelia shook hands with punk, pretty much before either had a name. Their 1960's work still stands up today due to some fine songs, Andy Ellison's insouciant vocals and the instrumental muscle provided by Chris Townson's extrovert drumming, John Hewlett's untutored but powerful bass and the fractured guitar playing of Marc Bolan or Geoff McClelland .

Black and White was recorded in dribs and drabs from the late 90's onward, but it soon dispels any doubts as to whether the spirit of something that was so much of its time and so long ago could successfully be recaptured 35 years or so on, and it actually turns out to be something of a triumph. Andy Ellison sounds as distinctive and as youthful as ever, Chris Townson loses no opportunity to batter his way round his kit and there are some memorable new songs and fine reinterpretations of old ones. "New" members Martin Gordon and Boz Boorer give the band a slightly more contemporary edge whilst staying true to its original spirit, so there are lots of 60's references but a freshness as well.

I happen to buy anything associated with Andy Ellison or Martin Gordon. Why? Because they always amaze and delight me. Isn't that reason enough? I think I've got just about every one shot group, solo stuff and side project they have ever been in. Unfortunately there are always some obscure things that elude me and it's my eternal mission to search far and wide for them. This one is really special. Yeah, I loved the early John's Children, but to me...this is even better. The energy is infectious and it makes me feel young again (which is downright difficult to do at my age). All I can say is...don't ever stop making music! Buy this and be amazed and enlightened.
