Product Notes

2022 collection. 7a Records is proud to announce the release of Davy Jones' Manchester Boy - Personal File. The album focuses on Davy Jones' private recordings and features rare solo tracks made between the 1960s-1980s, many of which Jones wrote himself. In the 1970s, Jones was looking to continue to showcase the matured aspect of his music, most recently presented on The Monkees' "Instant Replay" and "Present" albums in 1969. Jones went to work recording demos to present to Bell Records, two of which are included in this collection (Paul McCartney's "Man We Was Lonely" and the mid-60s "King Lonely the Blue". The resulting demos had an earthy and gritty feel, akin to a style made popular by Creedence Clearwater Revival, with a unique presentation that Jones felt best suited him as an artist. The majority of the tracks feature minimal musical accompaniment - in some cases nothing more than just an acoustic guitar. Most impressive is Jones' ability to carry the songs far beyond their narrow arrangements, with vocals that convey the raw emotion of the lyrics. The songs on this album went unreleased until the mid-1990s when Jones self-issued them as part of a four-volume set called "Just For The Record.
