Just to let you know the book arrived Monday morning in New Zealand. My parents are over the moon - they say the pictures are fantastic and it's incredibly well written.
The book has arrived on Friday and in perfect condition.It looks great and I'm looking forward to reading through it all soon.
I wholeheartedly endorse the book itself and overseas orders.
2015 saw a new book about Redcar Jazz Club which stood out like a cultural beacon on the North East coast from 1958 -1973, drawing audiences from a wide area and even boasted members who lived abroad, attending when they could. Who’d have thought a venue in a small seaside resort would play host to the range of artistes listed on these pages? Well, it did. They were Headliners all, and, more importantly at the top of their game.
The new 2020 reprint edition now includes a foreword by Ed Bicknell, former manager of Gerry Rafferty, Dire Straits, Mark Knopfler, Brian Ferry, Scott Walker and Blue Nile. He also booked bands into the club including Wishbone Ash, Stackridge, Vinegar Joe, Curved Air, Quintessence, Rox Music, Status Quo among many others.
Thanks for the prompt service and I hope the book is a great success for you all.
Redcar Jazz Club was special. Paul Rodgers, singer with Free, Bad Company & Queen said, “After all these years … I still remember the Redcar Jazz Club. It was the perfect atmosphere for Free to develop our live stage set.”
Bill Bruford, drummer with Yes recalled, “…I remember always a rapturous reception … And gigs that special were rare as hens’ teeth…”
… Zoot Money, singer, keyboard player and leader of the Big Roll Band pulls no punches, “A ravingly good gig…”
Jeremy Spencer, singer and slide guitarist with Fleetwood Mac revealed, “I remember the Redcar club well, it was one of our favourite places to play”
John Helliwell, sax player of Supertramp and The Alan Bown! smiles when he says, “It was always a real pleasure…”
Colin Allen, drummer, Zoot Money’s Big Roll Band, Stone The Crows, John Mayall, Bob Dylan - “… I think the nights (& there were many) we did with the Big Roll Band were so great that anything else pales into insignificance…”
David Coverdale, singer with Whitesnake & Deep Purple – “We never knew how lucky we were, to have a venue like that just around the corner. We got to see all the greats…”
Ray Laidlaw, drummer, Brethren and Lindisfarne has no hesitation in saying, “The audience at Redcar jazz Club gave us a huge confidence boost. Thank you Redcar Jazz Club.”
Chris Farlowe, solo singer, also with Colosseum & Atomic Rooster, on a visit to perform at Whitby, remarked, “Redcar Jazz Club? Of course I remember.
It’s about time someone wrote the book.”
