Product Notes

In 1986 cult garage favourites the Prisoners split up after making four great albums but achieving no breakthrough. They left a massive cult following and a bunch of bills. Their organist James Taylor went to Sweden, studied jazz piano and on holiday back in the UK used up some studio time to record a punked-up version of Herbie Hancock's 'Blow Up' which he left with his manager when he returned to Scandinavia. A couple of months later he got a call telling him to get back to the UK as his record was being championed by John Peel and was rapidly climbing the indie charts. This CD is the story of the hectic first year of the JTQ. It contains both sides of that number one indie record and, for the first time in 20 years, gathers together all of the band's 1987 Re-Elect the President sessions that were to be the live birth of the acid jazz movement. Those sessions resulted in a mini-album that complemented the debut single, made up of hip movie themes and a debut album written by James Taylor with his brother David. The booklet contains in-depth notes based upon interviews with Taylor, Crockford and Taylor's manager Eddie Piller. It includes all of the original artwork and photos of the first incarnation of one of the UK's most consistently popular live bands of the past two decades.
