Initially formed in Southampton in 1964, the band like so many others in England at that time were branching off from Beat music and developing a much more harsher R&B edge, but through the sixties they would rub shoulders with some of the big names, change their line up and change elements of their style to suit, yet somehow they remained strangely continuous through the decade to their eventual split in 1969.
In all that time however this marvellous band never released an album, but with Reflections released on Blueprint in 1997, the collectors can finally stop digging at the back of those charity shops for that elusive 45 and finally find all of Les Fleur de Lys' output in one place. And what a collection of songs it is, from their more famous work with Sharon Tandy, through to the more unusual and forgotten collaborations with Jimmy Page and Jimi Hendrix.
In the early days of being signed to Immediate, Les Fleur de Lys had a producer of some notoriety; indeed it was no other than Jimmy Page. Between them they recorded a number of absolute stunners, most notably Buddy Holly's Moondreams and Pete Townsend's Circles. Circles in particular is a favourite of mine, similar to some of The Birds' output of the same time but with some rather fetching guitar play contained within, still brutal but at the same time refined.Read more ›
Why they never made it bigger at the time is a mystery. In terms of sheer robust musicianship they stand comparison with contemporary bands like the Small Faces. The outstanding 'Circles' and 'Mud in Your Eye' have already cropped up on Nuggets II but it's a surprise that it's taken so long to compile this collection.
The period was so full of one or two hit wonders who hit a winning streak almost by accident that investing in career-spanning compilations can be a risky business. Having been disappointed by the unevenness of The Creation's compilation 'Our music is Red - With Purple Flashes' it's a relief to report thet you can approach 'Reflections' with much more optimism. Inevitably there's still the odd dud but mostly this is British 60's Psych at it's best.

This is a very interesting sixties album of singles and why they never made it big is one of those great mysteriesPublished on 29 Aug. 2013 by Yrret M Knott
But, this is one of the most expensive 60's groups to get hold of on original vinyl, so maybe you'd expect more? Read morePublished on 17 Sept. 2010 by The BlackFerret
