Back in the mid-Sixties, The Artwoods were one of the most vital, impressive R&B bands on the circuit, fronted by Art Wood (elder brother of future Faces/Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie) and also boasting future Deep Purple organist Jon Lord, renowned drummer Keef Hartley, guitarist Derek Griffiths and bassist Malcolm Pool.

Between 1964 and 1967, the band recorded seven singles, the ultra-rare EP Jazz In Jeans and a nearly as scarce LP, Art Gallery, mostly for Decca but also for Parlophone and Fontana (the last under the pseudonym St. Valentine’s Day Massacre). Their records have long been coveted by fans of 60s beat, R&B and Mod music.

Steady Gettin' It is the most comprehensive anthology of The Artwoods’ recordings to date. Alongside all of the band’s A’s and B’s, this 3-CD boasts four previously unissued early acetate recordings by the Art Wood Combo, several BBC radio sessions with unique tracks and a long-lost live recording in Denmark from that tail-end of their career.

The compilation benefits from the involvement of the band’s guitarist Derek Griffiths and basisst Malcolm Pool, plus legendary blues producer Mike Vernon.

The sound quality of The Artwoods’ recordings has never sounded better, due to some exemplary remastering and resourcing of some of their rarer tracks.

This vital addition to the collection of any discerning Sixties fan boasts a superbly designed and annotated bumper booklet.
