Georgie Fame was different. The bulk of "rhythm and blues" groups followed the Stones image: scruffy urchins who you probably wouldn't invite around for tea, but his image was totally different.

Georgie and the Blues Flames looked more like members of the Stax/Volt Revue than the Downliners Sect.

And then there was the music. No harmonica and guitar Chicago blues here, Fame opted for a mix of jump blues mingled with early soul, the sort of music that had been emerging in US cities like Memphis and Detroit.

Hammond and horns playing jazz, Latin, Stax and ska. What you have on this LP is 18 songs broadcast on the BBC in 1965 - presented here in sparkling hi-fidelity sound.

Notes by Smiler Anderson.
