TERRY STAMP - Blue Redondo LP JAW068


TERRY STAMP - Blue Redondo LP JAW068

Terry’s follow-up to his fantastic 1975 album FATSTICKS will finally be heard! Blue Redondo was recorded during 1977-1978 after he had relocated from London to El Segundo, California and still owed his label another album. They passed on the material and the tapes sat in storage until the early 2000s when Terry had the material pressed onto short run CDs to sell at his local solo gigs and via mail order. This the first time any of the tunes have been available on vinyl, lovingly recovered from the original master tapes by Jessica Thompson and mastered by Sean M. Lennon. This is somehow drinking music and “Sunday morning coming down” music at the same time. Terry puts on a master class in songwriting over these twelve tracks. Pairs perfectly with our double album of Terry’s home demos TWENTY ROUGH ROTTERS. Fact.

Simply put, Terry is one of the most underrated songwriters of the past 50 years. He got his start in the early 60s playing bass for Mike Rabin and The Demons, the house band at the Wimbledon Palais, supporting the likes of The Kinks and The Rolling Stones. After the Palais closed, he was hired as a songwriter for Schroeder Music in ‘68. He soon connected with Jim Avery (ex-Attack, Thunderclap Newman) and formed the axis of underground heroes, THIRD WORLD WAR, the best bit of aggro ever, pre-figuring the UK Punk explosion by a good five years. After TWW, Terry released his debut solo album Fatsticks, an incredible collection of superb songwriting seeing him backed by the likes of Ollie Halsall, Tony Newman, Herbie Flowers and Jim Avery. Terry relocated to America by the time Fatsticks was released. Terry dutifully entered Brother Recording Studio and laid down the album he still owed using some of his earliest efforts such as “Mask Upon Your Face” which dated from 1968 and very recently written ones like “Harbor Freeway”, which literally went right by his new house. This is a listen on repeat ten times kind of album. 46 years late and worth the wait!
