In case any of the non British contingent are interested "Underground" was a term used to describe Heavy Rock & Blues Based Music in the UK in the late 60's. Also it was called "Progressive". This would be a section in a small record shop. Once me and a mate of mine went into a record shop and asked to see their Underground records (no money in our pockets, wearing the wrong clothes and short hair), when the shop guy pointed us to the Progressive section, we walked out as they obviously didn't have any Underground records !
We didn't know they were the same thing ! Around the same time, perhaps a little later Decca did a great little Stones booklet too.

Very nice, Mr Gardener.
Everybody is entitled to their opinion, even if it's wrong, which it is, uh, most of the time, maybe....or not.

Decca Underground Music Booklet

Post by Heidler » Fri Nov 09, 2012 7:25 am

Nice examples, I've seen something like it in a John Mayall Lp..

Let's see....hmmmmm....
Yes...there is Sir Paul McCartney, Sir Mick ( Michael Philip ) Jagger and of course!...
Sir Theodore Anthony " Ted " Nugent!

______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

All that aside, it's no suprise the " American Amboy Dukes " considering the people they had on staff at British Decca ( including London, and the NYC office, and London-American ) during the period.

Don't forget, THIS was the first outfit to turn-down the Beatles with the now-famous:
" Guitar combos are on the way out " and only signed the Stones because of the huge gaff they'd made regarding those " boys from Liverpool "

Only the staff on the Classical side of things ( Phase 4, etc ) seemed to be on the ball.

Some people, from that period who still work in the industry, still comment on how " screwed-up " Brirish Decca was.
Talk to members of Los Bravos, Unit 4 + 2, and the Nashville Teens, it wasn't always just " bad managers "

Again, very nice examples to have in a collection.
Thanks for posting them.
