The Foundations - Live On Air - CD
The Foundations, Live On Air 1967 – 69
While The Foundations only troubled the Top 20 on four occasions, the commercial buoyancy of the chart-topping Baby, Now That I've Found You, plus Back On My Feet Again, Build Me Up Buttercup and In The Bad, Bad Old Days only tells part of the story. Their influence goes further than just their own trailblazing hits: a hybrid of white pop and black soul was a torch carried forward into the ’70s and ’80s by the likes of Hot Chocolate and The Beat, while Lynval Golding of The Specials cited seeing The Foundations in the ’60s as a seismic inspiration. Their various sessions for the BBC’s needle time quota from October 1967 to November 1969 highlights the wave of popularity they enjoyed with the public at such a competitive time in pop music and the quality that went into making them a household name.
London Calling presents a slice of pop soul hysteria from the archives with fully restored and professionally remastered original broadcasts from the golden era of British pop music. Presented with background nots and timeline photos.
