Product Information

Guy Darrell is probably best-known for his 1973 hit ‘I’ve Been Hurt’ – actually a reissue of a 1966 single which had been revived by the Northern Soul scene.

The Kent-based vocalist may have been a one-hit-wonder but he was actually a prolific recording artist across the 1960s, making rare Beat-Era 45s for Oriole (with backing band The Midniters), CBS, Pye and Page One (latterly as the Guy Darrell Syndicate).

In the 1970s, Darrell continued to record with rock band Deep Feeling, as well as capitalising on the belated success of ‘I’ve Been Hurt’.

This 28-track compilation is the first-ever official retrospective of Darrell’s Sixties work, remastered from original master tapes with detailed sleeve-notes (including quotes from Darrell’s manager Roger Easterby) and rare photos.

Sixties/Mod collectors will appreciate such tracks as Guy’s amazing version of ‘Stupidity’, the Psych classic ‘Evil Woman’, those elusive Oriole tracks and the first-ever version of Elton John’s ‘Skyline Pigeon’.
