This is one of those images that should have been thrown out but its got Chuck Berry on it so you just can’t- no matter how poor the exposure or the awful ravages of time.

This is from the tour Chuck Berry did with Rockin’ Horse as the backing band. I believe this photo was taken at The Speakeasy in London because all the other shows were arena gigs with high stages.

From The Archives…Rockin Horse

Here are couple of tunes from my time with Rockin’ Horse. Though the album was not well promoted/received at the time- probably due to its proximity to the Beatles breakup and obvious Merseybeat roots the album has enjoyed a cult following for some time and was re-released in 2004. The critics have praised it as the original “power-pop” record. It’s obviously stood the test of time.

Have a listen and let me know what you think!

You can hear more about ┬áRockin’ Horse in Mersey Me! A Liverpool Lad On The Loose In The Swingin’ 60’s. I contributed harmonies, 12-string guitar, piano, Hammond, and Wurlitzer electric piano to the mix. While you are waiting for your book to arrive on your doorstep or download to your tablet you can hop over to this great review of the re-release on Aquarium Drunkard.

Yes It Is- re-release
