Circles: The Strange Story of the "Fleur De Lys" Britain's Forgotten Soul Band

£39.99

Product description

As part of their successful RARE MOD series, Acid Jazz have once again turned their hand to book publishing. Following on from the number one bestselling biography of the Small Faces by Paolo Hewitt, this time, as a companion to the forthcoming FLEUR DE LYS EP ('The Two Sides of The Fleur de Lys' AJX225S) the label shines a light on one of the legendary and perhaps most unsung mod bands of the 1960's. The book charts the Southampton group's journey from humble beginnings to becoming the first British band signed to Atlantic Records - who used them as an English version of Booker T and the MG's - forever backing hits and touring legends but never quite having their career handled properly. Hits with Sharon Tandy as well as their astronomic version of The Who's 'Circles' and their own psyche masterpiece 'Mud In Your Eye' (both of which sell for well over £600) have earned The Fleur de Lys their rightful place in the mod pantheon. Authors Paul Anderson and Damian Jones have interviewed every surviving member and tell a fascinating story of sublime talent, missed chances and mismanaged business opportunities.
