HOW BRITAIN GOT ITS MOJO: 1961 MUSIC MADE IN THE UK

HOW BRITAIN GOT ITS MOJO: 1961 MUSIC MADE IN THE UK

Playing tracks by

THE OUTLAWS featuring their drummer BOBBY GRAHAM, DENNIS NEWEY, TED TAYLOR FOUR, THE BARONS, EMILE FORD AND THE CHECKMATES and more.

1961 - the year the boundaries were pushed back, instrumentals became a tour de force forte, and trad jazz boomed with the ascendancy of the Temperance Seven (while Acker Bilk's one-off excursion into lush orchestral, Stranger on the Shore, proved his biggest hit of all). Jamaican music - mento and ska (then known as blue beat) - multiplied with Blue Beat and Starlite releasing it. Joe Meek's out-there experiments in pop hit the big time.
