Lost Steve Marriott tracks from 1967 on limited edition 45 via new edition of Record Collector magazine

The new edition of Record Collector magazine tells the story of how Steve Marriott persuaded Glyn Johns to produce a 1967 recording (originally telling him it was a Small Faces session) at Olympic Studios (room 2) whilst Jimi Hendrix was recording in the studio next door.

The two instrumentals recorded featured Jerry Shirley on drums with his brother Angus on guitar. Marriott played organ whilst Peter Dines contributed piano, Bob Argent bass and Ernie Hayes also played guitar.

The 7" 45 has been made available by Record Collector in a limited run of 400 - you need to be quick as mine arrived this morning with the certificate number 272. Jimi's Tune Part 1 is a great organ groover whilst Jimi's Tune Part 2 is much more broody and atmospheric as it builds up.

Record Collector also includes an exclusive interview with Dave Davies of The Kinks and a review of the new Georgie Fame box-set.
