Sunday Sunshine: The World of SNB Records
"One of the movers and shakers of the music biz in the modern era has been Simon Napier Bell, and during 1968-1969 he put his talents into A&R-ing his own label. Fresh from managing The Yardbirds, Johns Children and co-authoring for Dusty Springfield, and with backing from CBS, SNB picked up on the hip pop world flowing through London at the time. It is an extraordinary assortment from which we have distilled the most potent exotic, baroque and pop psych elements. All have high production values with the likes of the talented Ian Green as arranger. As you would expect most of the singles are today very rare, and have not been reissued or released on CD. That said there is growing awareness of the music from numerous quarters, with pick up from internet radio stations to magazines, and the label has attained a cult standing. First time reissue, first time on CD. A unique 60s collection. Remastered from original CBS held SNB tapes, includes very rare singles. Essential for pop psych and similar collectors." Artists include: Jon Plum, Hubert Thomas Valverde & The HT'S, Mellow Candle, Andy Ellison, Clive Sands, Flamma Sherman, Sheila Scott Wilkinson, Sue Wilshaw, Rory Fellowes, David Blake, Nicola Davies, and Françoise Pascale.
