Unreleased 1965 Abbey Road Recordings from this Liverpool Beat Combo. Nice period fold over tab cover. David Gilespie from Vee Tone says.... "I met Al Peters, a founder member of the band about a year ago at the Cavern Club when we were launching our Cavern Club 60th Anniversary LP. Al mentioned to me that he was in The ‘Almost’ Blues and gave me some recordings they’d cut at Abbey Road in 1965. I played the tracks back and soon realised these were outstanding recordings from one of Liverpool’s top R&B bands, not only were they playing R&B at the height of Merseybeat, they were one of the first multi-racial groups in Liverpool, featuring the soulful vocals of Colin Areety who went on to have a solo career in the 70’s recording on DERAM (popular on the northern soul scene). Even the story behind the band is fascinating, with links to Stuart Sutcliffe of the Beatles. These recordings were produced by EMI’s Bob Barratt and are of the highest standard in terms of the musicianship and production. The 45 has had quite a considerable radio play and the feedback has been superb.\"
