If you want some Geno Washington recordings in your life or simply want to complete a collection, then you need to check out Geno! The Piccadilly & Pye Studio Recordings and the Live! box set, both of which are coming from Demon Records.
Let’s look at Geno! first, which as you probably guessed, is a double CD collection of the studio work from the Piccadilly and Pye archives, covering the years 1966 – 1972. All the A sides and B sides released by Geno Washington are here in chronological order, along with the studio album ‘Shake A Tail Feather’ for Pye Records on disc one. That’s followed all the singles that followed the album, plus bonus tracks recovered from the vaults thirty years later on disc two.
Quite a thing and available fro 28th October 2016 (but available to pre-order now) for £9.99.
If that’s not enough, the label is also releasing a three CD set, bringing together all three of the live albums recorded for Piccadilly and Pye Records between 1966 – 1968, all of which sold incredibly well (two were top 10 albums) and cemented Geno’s reputation as a superb live performer.
If you want to the track listing, do check the listing on Amazon, which is taking pre-orders for the set for £12.99. That’s also available from 28th October 2016.
