Due 26/05...ASHTON, GARDNER AND DYKE : LET IT ROLL LIVE 1971
Ashton, Gardner and Dyke were a power rock trio, most popular in the early 1970s. They are best remembered for their song, "Resurrection Shuffle", a transatlantic Top 40 success in 1971.
Founding band member, Tony Ashton first met the drummer, Roy Dyke, when playing with various Blackpool based groups. Ashton was invited to join the Liverpool beat group, The Remo Four as organist/vocalist, whilst Roy Dyke became the group's drummer, having joined them in 1963.
Before their break-up in 1968, they backed George Harrison on his album Wonderwall Music.
Harrison later played the guitar on their song "I'm Your Spiritual Breadman".
Ashton and Dyke then joined forces in 1968 with the bass guitar playing Kim Gardner, who had previously played in British groups, The Birds and The Creation.
The triad simply called themselves Ashton, Gardner and Dyke.
Largely taken from a concert in Belgium in 1971, this captures the offbeat British group when it was at the peak of its popularity.
The nine principal tracks are drawn from all three of the band's albums.
It's Gonna Be High Tonight / Let It Roll / Mister Freako / It's A Drag, I'm A Drag / I'm Dying For You / Resurrection Shuffle / Falling Song / Rolling Home / Bily and His Piano With
Billy and His Piano With (Live 1970) / Resurrection Shuffle (Live 1970)
