Tony Sheridan: Skinny Minny - The Brits Are Rocking Vol.6 (CD)

1 CD with 36 page booklet, 29 tracks. Total playing time approx. 78 min.

  • The sixth release in the CD series with British Beat and Rock & Roll recordings on Bear Family Records® is dedicated to Tony Sheridan.
  • He was the most important pioneer of a Rock & Roll scene in Germany next to Bill Haley.
  • Sheridan had a decisive influence on the Star Club era in Hamburg and, in addition to his collaboration with the Beatles, released great productions of his own, which we have collected here in a compact form.
  • The album includes the most important Polydor rockers from 1961 to 1965, including quite a few titles for the first time legally on CD!
  • Tony Sheridan ruled Hamburg alongside King Size Taylor - we pay tribute to one of the best British guitarists and singers of his era!
  • Detailed liner notes by Roland Heinrich Rumtreiber in the wonderfully illustrated accompanying booklet.
  • Carefully remastered recordings for this edition from digital copies of original analog sources.

Tony Sheridan was second only to Bill Haley in catalyzing the German Rock & Roll scene. Sheridan was a prime force during the legendary Star Club era, and he helped create the Hamburg Sound. However, he was reduced to a mere footnote in the Beatles saga as time went by. Due to his partnership with the Fab Four during the first years of the 1960s, his own releases and magnificent talent are often overlooked. 
Bear Family Records® intends to change that with Volume Six of the popular series ‘The Brits Are Rocking’ and presents BCD17635 - Tony Sheridan: Skinny Minny.

Tony Sheridan was born in Norwich on May 21, 1940. His parents emphasized a proper education. Classical music was a constant, and Tony studied violin and later guitar. This thorough upbringing bore fruits – however, not to the taste of Mr. And Mrs. Sheridan. Young Tony was stricken with a bad case of the skiffle fever, founded The Saints, and ended up in London. His massive talent and technique made him a respected sideman on tours and recording sessions. Sheridan played for Gene Vincent and Eddie Cochran on that fatal tour in 1960. 
The owner of the Hamburg 'Kaiserkeller', Bruno Koschmider, engaged the pianist and promoter Ian Hines to put together a band for him in 1960, which should perform in the 'Kaiserkeller'. The resulting Jets with Tony Sheridan, among others, were the first English band in the Hanseatic city. The rest is history.

On ‘Skinny Minny’, Bear Family Records® offers classics such as Skinny Minny, My Bonnie (the rarer English intro), Ruby Baby, The Saints, and Take Some Insurance On Me Baby. The Polydor recordings span 1961 - 1965, and Bear Family Records® is first in legally re-issuing some Sheridan titles on CD: Get on the Right Track Baby, Ready Teddy, Hallelujah! I Love Her So, Let’s Twist Again, Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On, Just a Little Bit, and Mary Ann.

Tony Sheridan was one of the best English vocalists and guitar players of his time. He co-ruled Hamburg with his rival King Size Taylor – their competition was friendly and based on mutual respect. Sheridan‘s impact was immense: The Beatles reverently called him ‘The Teacher.’

Tony Sheridan & The Beatles

During their first stint in Hamburg, the Beatles met Tony Sheridan, born Anthony Esmond Sheridan McGinnity. Sheridan was a British-born musician from Norwich who had arrived in Hamburg on June 5, 1960, as a member of a band called The Jets. There, he quickly became a star of the local club scene and his success beckoned others to follow. Like many other teenagers in the 50s, Sheridan had started his musical career in a skiffle group. Later in the 50s, he had joined British rock star Vince Taylor, and played with his band on a recording session in 1958. After leaving Taylor's Playboys in 1959, Sheridan worked as a session musician in London for a while and appeared as a guitarist on Jack Good's TV-show 'Oh Boy!' Besides working as a session musician, Sheridan had also worked as a support act for Cliff Richard and Conway Twitty, and in the spring of 1960, he and his trio toured Britain with Gene Vincent and Eddie Cochran.

"They [the Beatles] used to sit in with Tony Sheridan at the Top Ten Club – he helped them and they learned a lot from him."

(Fellow Liverpool musician Howie Casey, 'Mersey Beat,'1963)

Good collection with an obviously underrated artist.

The sixth volume in The Brits series Are Rocking and the turn has come for Tony Sheridan who was a talented singer, something Ray Charles witnessed in 1963 when this legend visited Hamburg. In addition, Tony was one of England's better guitarists in rock'n'roll in the early years and is said to have created the guitar riff in Vince Tay's "Brand New Cadillac". Born Anthony Esmond Sheridan McGinnity on 21 May 1940 in Norwich, East Anglia, he grew up in what has been described as difficult circumstances and seems to have become a tormented soul who often blew his chances with a wayward performance. He left Norwich for London but moved (fled?) to Hamburg in 1960 and, with a few cumbersome moves, became the first English rock'n'roll band to play there under the name the Jets. He was a superb live performer who gave his all on stage. He is best known for his association with the Beatles, which is why the album opens with "My Bonnie", in which Tony sings, plays lead guitar and compasses the Beatles. He also arranged the song. Two more tracks with the Beatles, "The Saints" and "Take Out Some Insu- rance On Me Baby" are included. The songs are mostly American rock'n'roll songs or standards, the only original as I understand it is "Top Ten Twist". But it swings well and many versions compare well with the best. A few that I would particularly like to point out are "Jambalaya", "My Babe" and "Swanee River". All recorded in Hamburg, with mostly English musicians, between 1961 and 1965 with the emphasis on the period 1961-1963. Very extensive text in the booklet, which is really interesting. Good collection with an obviously underrated artist.
