Shangai Featuring Mick Green - Shangai & Fallen Heroes - (1974-1975 uk classic rock blended soul & Rock'n'roll - Vinyl rip - Wave audio format)


These two albums that are totally different from the rest of the career of guitarist Mick Green that was exceptional.
The first appeared in 1975 is a blend of soul music and various other influences that are far from the basics of rock'n'roll by Mick. This is in fact due to the musicians that surround Mick, especially the singer Chuck Bedford (Great soul singer), which is the main composer with Mick Green. An album full of fine superb compositions with bright guitars and vocals!!! The kind of album that should have been a total success!!!
The second see an almost complete change of personnel with the addition of fantastic singer Clif Bennett (Toe Fat) and guitarist Brian Alterman (Great slide guitarist). There are only Mick and Pete Kircher from the first album. The music is different, more focused rock'n'roll with the voice of Cliff (This proves the importance of the singers in these 2 discs) ... There is the classic "Shakin All Over" very successful but also more adventurous compositions as Let's Get The Hell or Nobody's Fool ... In short two gems never reissued on cd (Which is a shame when you see the number of bad reissued discs!)

Hey another Shanghai fan I watched them live twice - with Cliff Bennett so assume it was 1975, small venue. Had a cup of tea with them after ! Just played the vinyl today - awesome organic rock sound.

Well done !

Can't thank you enough. I was never able to get a decent copy at the time - every copy jumped horribly.
