Smoke Notes

When Paul and Barry Ryan split as a performing duo in 1968 nobody expected to hear from them again. Their fine Britpop singles and overlooked semi- Freakbeat/Pop albums weren't selling; they were trapped on a cabaret circuit they loathed. The image of the handsome swinging, singing twin brothers was under severe strain. So when Barry reappeared at the end of the year and scored a colossal worldwide hit (reaching number one in six countries!) with the epic, Paul-penned Eloise , it was akin to a particularly unlikely phoenix rising from the ashes. The single was a stunning five and a half minute tour de force of grandiose orchestral pop and Uber-Jim Webb-ism which sounded unlike anything else in the charts at the time, and is fondly remembered and covered worldwide still! The subsequent entirely Paul- penned album, imaginatively entitled! ʻBarry Ryan Sings Paul Ryanʼ! , received rave reviews and has become something of a cult favourite amongst fans of contemporary orch-pop works by Scott Walker, Glen Campbell and even Tom Jones. Other hits including Love Is Love and The Hunt followed into the '70s, as did five more solo albums, none of which have ever been reissued on CD... until now! "Barry Ryan: Singing The Songs Of Paul Ryan (1968-69)" couples that classic debut with its remarkable eponymous 1969 follow-up and adds two ultra-rare tracks found only on the German version of the second album; all remastered for your sonic delight! Fantastically remastered for your especial pleasure, to best display the epic qualities of these superb songs! Sumptuously repackaged with new artwork, including detailed notes, memorabilia, and heaps of rare photos; most not seen for years, many never before published! Classic, superb orchestral semi-psych pop ala Jim Webb -delivered with the crazy assurance of a Scott Walker, Glen Campbell, Bergen White, Richard Harris or Tom Jones...a must for EVERYBODY!
