The Smoke Anthology is reviewed on the wonderful web site 
Marmalade Skies ("Home of British Psychedelia") at
http://www.marmalade-skies.co.uk/ms-reviews2.htm

Among the other reviews is one on the great new compilation by 
Honeybus... probably the most neglected band of the UK 60s. 
If you like The Smoke and other British bands of the period 
check out the rest of Marmalade Skies for a real treat

I ordered my copy of both CDs from amazon.co.uk 
Here's a url to the Smoke CD - 
http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/B000063IQX/qid=1026906282/sr=1-3/ref=sr_1_3_3/026-2753557-6864429

Amazon only lists tracks from the first CD of the 2 CD set but 
the review at Marmalade Skies gives you a good picture of what's 
in store.

Smoke fit firmly in the 60s sound and I would love to hear from 
more experts in this area.

Message: 3 Date: Wed, 17 Jul 2002 15:31:47 -0000 From: Phoenix Canada Subject: Nanette Licari Great story...can anyone do us a favour and identify which Reparata is which.....use say the cover photo of the CD. BTW I've noted that there's a Reparata and the Delrons CD called 'Magical Musical History Tour' on the German label 'Mo- Banana'. Anyone have a copy? Can they give me an indication of technical quality. I recall buying a CD from a few years back from the Dutch 'Black Tulip' label. All original trax (Chi-Lites in fact) but the mastering to CD was crap! It made the music sound like it was recorded on tin foil. Thanks -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Well....no actually....and btw there were no "Copies"........ Mr. Stec and I prepared and remastered ALL these releases in their different variations for simultaneous release in their various territories on different labels, at their request, and Mr. Stec retains ownership on behalf of the artists......lots more interesting stuff to come too.......btw sorry to hear of the recent death of Marshall Leib.....interesting producer in his own right........anybody an expert in Mr. Leib? all the best Joe -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Message: 6 Date: Wed, 17 Jul 2002 23:10:03 -0000 From: supreme dream Subject: Reparata's CD I have a copy of Reparata and the Delrons "Magical Musical Mystery Tour". I really like it and find it a lot more interesting than their Rock and Roll Revolution. "I Can Hear The Rain" is worth the price of the cd! The quality of the tracks appears fine. I got mine at www.discol.com. I'd stear clear of the Luv'd Ones. Yikes! Some of those cuts sound like they were recorded in the back seat of a VW on the way to New Jersey! -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 7 Date: Thu, 18 Jul 2002 04:41:58 -0000 From: Greg Ogarrio Subject: Tony Rivers in LA 7/24 10 p.m. for IPO ENTERTAINMENT TIP FOR THE SOUTHLAND: I'd give my eye-teeth to see the former leader of the mid-'60s UK beat group The Castaways and fondly remembered Harmony Grass combo. He's flying in from London with his son Anthony Jr. to headline with John Wicks & The Records at the International Pop Overthrow festival next week in Los Angeles, at the Knitting Factory on Hollywood Boulevard. Highly recommended for pop enthusiasts. http://www.internationalpopoverthrow.com/schedule.htm Greg Ogarrio http://www.rapiers.net -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
