Description

RE-PRESS: CD ORIGINALLY RELEASED IN 2013 .

  • John’s Children were the quintessential cult 60s Mod/Psych band, controversial, sharply dressed and subsequently the stuff of legend.
  • The band were fronted by Andy Ellison (later with Jet and Radio Stars) and boasted Marc Bolan within their ranks during their short life.
  • A STRANGE AFFAIR – for the first time – boasts the entire John’s Children output between 1966 and 1970. The package includes:
    • Two singles for EMI’s Columbia label: ‘The Love I Thought I’d Found’ and ‘Just What You Want – Just What You Get’.
    • Four singles for The Who’s label Track Records: ‘Desdemona’, the legendarily withdrawn ‘Midsummer Night's Scene’, ‘Come And Play With Me In The Garden’ and ‘Go-Go Girl’.
    • Their mock-live album Orgasm! which was belatedly issued on US label White Whale in 1970.
    • Andy Ellison’s subsequent solo singles ‘It's Been A Long Time’ (Track), ‘Fool From Upper Eden’ (CBS) and ‘You Can't Do That’ (SNB).
    • Three tracks by pre-John’s Children band The Silence.
    • A raft of rare and previously unissued alternative versions and mixes.
  • The 2-CD set has been compiled with help from Andy Ellison. Their manager Simon Napier-Bell contributed to the detailed sleeve-notes, which are based around excerpts from Ellison’s autobiography.
