Product Notes

-Sheridan had a decisive influence on the Star Club era in Hamburg and, in addition to his collaboration with the Beatles, released great productions of his own, which we have collected here in a compact form. -The album includes the most important Polydor rockers from 1961 to 1965, including quite a few titles for the first time legally on CD! -Tony Sheridan ruled Hamburg alongside King Size Taylor - we pay tribute to one of the best British guitarists and singers of his era! -Detailed liner notes by Roland Heinrich Rumtreiber in the wonderfully illustrated accompanying booklet. -Carefully remastered recordings for this edition from digital copies of original analog sources. Tony Sheridan was second only to Bill Haley in catalyzing the German Rock & Roll scene. Sheridan was a prime force during the legendary Star Club era, and he helped create the Hamburg Sound. However, he was reduced to a mere footnote in the Beatles saga as time went by. Due to his partnership with the Fab Four during the first years of the 1960s, his own releases and magnificent talent are often overlooked. Bear Family RecordsĀ® intends to change that with Volume Six of the popular series 'The Brits Are Rocking' and presents BCD17635 - Tony Sheridan: Skinny Minny. Tony Sheridan was born in Norwich on May 21, 1940. His parents emphasized a proper education. Classical music was a constant, and Tony studied violin and later guitar. This thorough upbringing bore fruits - however, not to the taste of Mr. And Mrs. Sheridan. Young Tony was stricken with a bad case of the skiffle fever, founded The Saints, and ended up in London. His massive talent and technique made him a respected sideman on tours and recording sessions. Sheridan played for Gene Vincent and Eddie Cochran on that fatal tour in 1960. Tony also had a reputation as a relentless bandleader, and he was asked to form a combo for an extended engagement at the Kaiserkeller in Hamburg.
