Terry Reid, ‘Superlungs’ as he’s affectionately known, is without a doubt one of the greatest rock/soul voices music has ever produced or is indeed likely to. A Terry Reid concert should be a cherished memory for any self-respecting fan of the greats of British music. Terry turned down the front man’s job with Led Zeppelin, recommending his mate Robert Plant instead. There was a similar offer and rebuff to Deep Purple as well. Aretha Franklin stated that The Beatles, Rolling Stones and Terry Reid were the best England had to offer in 1968. He underwent two World Tours with The Rolling Stones, US tours with Cream, UK tours with Jethro Tull and Fleetwood Mac, The Isle of White Festival in 1969 and Glastonbury in 1970, played at Mick Jagger’s wedding, before soured record deals resulted in Terry leaving Britain for America. The full story also includes numerous collaborations with Graham Nash, covers of Reid songs by Marianne Faithfull, The Hollies, The Raconteurs (the hugely popular ‘Rich Kid Blues’), film soundtracks, including a song in George Clooney’s film ‘Up In The Air’, and a catalogue of 6 studio albums, including the seminal album ‘River’, re-released to critical acclaim in 2002 and the 1976 Nash produced ‘Seed of Memory’. A Reid song ‘Horses Through a Rainstorm’ also features on CSN’s box set. Terry continues to tour around the globe to captive audiences.

Bebopalula is a vocal group in the tradition of The Beach Boys and Crosby Stills Nash & Young. The band is made up of highly regarded musicians from the Los Angeles scene that have each built surprisingly deep resumés despite their relatively short time in the business. Their credits include albums and tours for artists like The Monkees, Ringo Starr, The Who, Emitt Rhodes, Badfinger, Denny Laine and Linda Perhacs. A debut self-titled album was released to critical acclaim in 2020 and singles are currently being released for their next project.
