Its amazing what you can find sometimes sifting through bargain bins, I found the very first ever release by John Peels Dandelion records. Firstly I didn’t really know that Sir John Peel, the master of the air waves had a record label!m apparantly it only 4 years as the label never really had any success due to John Peels attitude of let people find the music themselves. Anything with Peels thumb marks on it was always a good sign of real quality
The very first ever release was a single by little known folk singer songwriter Beau called 1917 revolution. Stylistically I guess you can say his sound was very much of the time, very reminiscent of the likes of Donovan and to a certain extent Dylan in the fact that he was writing protest songs about political. So 1917 revolution is all about the Russian revolution and how the people over through the Tsarist aristocracy.
Beau only ever released one album due to Dandelion records folding and there is little known about this one man who was washed up never to be heard from again!
