The Alan Bown (Set)!, live in session from 1966 to 1970.

The history of British rock 'n' roll of the 1960's is filled with the names of homegrown performers who, despite enjoying the favour of critics, music columnists, and club audiences, never managed to make a permanent mark on the record charts. Alan Bown was a case-in-point, a trumpet player who organized a series of bands in the 1960's — principally known as the Alan Bown Set —who received rave reviews and attracted healthy live audiences, but which were never able to successfully transfer their club sound onto vinyl. Radio sessions offered something much closer to the favoured live setting and from 1966-70, their frenetic energy and creative flow was captured for a radio audience who would witness the transition of The Alan Bown! through R&B and Soul to Psychedelic rock.
London Calling proudly presents The Alan Bown! (Set), live in session at the BBC 1966-1970. Professionally re-mastered original broadcasts with background liners and rare archival memorabilia.
