I became a Peddler fan in 1967, so this reveiw will be biased. What grabbed me first was the way they re-vamped old standards and moulded them with their own unique style, yet still stayed loyal to the original score. Live at the Pickwick was their first album and demonstrates admirably their talent and love of what they did. They played as one yet their individual styles shone through. What'll I do was the track that introduced me to the Peddlers, and from that day to this I am still a fan. Luckily with this Box Set, you get two for the price of one (so to speak). Three For All was their 3rd Or 4th album I think, and again the treatment of well known songs like "In the Summertime", and "My Funny Valentine" might have the composers thinking "Now why didn't I do it that way". You are also treated to original compositions on both albums, thus enforcing their desire for variation with a common theme. I have tried many times to find C.D. versions of my vinyl collection only to asked by the assistant "Who". and comments like"never heard of them", so it's with much gratitude I thank See For Miles for publishing them and Amazon for stocking them. I now hope that the rest of their Albums become available on disc, which may also bring their music to a wider audience.

Yep - 'How cool is cool' IS pretty cool - but 'Live at the Pickwick' will bring you to the edge of your seat. A little too many vocals for my taste (and Roy Phillips' voice is not the most spectacular of voices). Strangely, he's denied (or has declined) the use of reverb or other aids for his vocal performances here, which, consequently sound very dry. The playing, however, is superb. Georgie Fame springs to mind, but the Peddlers had really grown their own style of jazzy r'nb pop (or poppy r'nb jazz). The two LP's, from 1967 and 1970 respectively, go together well , although 'Three for all' is an ambitious project with touches of symphonic composing and gospel at the expence of the raw jazzgroove. Clearly, The Peddlers did not wish to become yet another organcombo. This double CD is a fairly well hidden gem that really deserves a re-issue as copies are hard (pricey) to come by.

I was living in Cardiff back in the mid 90's and had a mate called Pete who liked all sorts of music - he had the Freewheelin' and the Live albums and introduced me to the band's music . Being a drummer I was impressed by that aspect and managed to track down both of those albums once I got back to Australia .

I later found this CD and was glad I did . It stopped me wearing the vinyl copies out !

If you've not heard the band , I would describe the music as groovy in the best sense of the word . The songs are varied in nature , as are the grooves played . I would love to see some of these songs played near a dancefloor - I'm sure they'd get people going .

For those who don't have it , patience will be rewarded sooner or later .
The group's other albums are coming out slowly .

May I suggest you buy the CD's and hunt down the vinyl in the meantime .

This 2CD set is a great synopsis of the career of the Peddlers. The Live at Pickwick album shows the pure musicianship of Roy, Tab and Trevor. Try to ignore the intro commentary, its very dated, but does give more clues as to how much ahead of their time these guys were. The studio Three For All has great inpressions of classics as well as some of their own compositions. The hammond B3 intro to Tell The World by Roy still sends shivers down my spine after at least 100 listenings over the years, many years...
