We’re back at Glossop Labour Club on Thursday 11th July for USA 1969, when we’ll be going back exactly 50 year to explore from and inspired by America.
With the focus of our 1967 and 1968 sessions being primarily on UK music, this time we turn our attention to the USA, taking in tracks from the incendiary debuts by The Stooges and MC5 among others. From Detroit to Woodstock to Altamont, change was definitely in the air. We’ll also feature a few tracks by British artists under the influence of American soul, country and blues, who went so far as to record over there, resulting in some of their best work.
And it’s a Brit abroad that gives us our featured album – Dusty Springfield’s ‘Dusty In Memphis’, recorded in Memphis and New York after signing to Atlantic Records in 1968. Surprisingly, the album saw no chart action in the UK, and only just scraped into the Billboard 100 in the USA. But, as with so many albums that flopped at the time, it’s reputation grew, and is now regarded as a classic, and Dusty’s definitive album.
Doors open at 8pm, the music starts at 8.30pm. See you there!
