Label Review. 

Huge hit singles, highly-regarded psych-pop B-sides, criminally overlooked album tracks, alternative versions, outtakes, foreign language recordings, a live cabaret album and even the first-ever full release of the complete sessions for the 1970 cult movie ‘May Morning’.

Our Overview. 

There have been Tremeloes compilations before. However, The Complete CBS Recordings 1966-72 is unquestionably THE definitive anthology of one of the most successful British pop groups of the late Sixties. This 6-CD release features every note of the band’s recordings during their halcyon days with CBS.

Originally fronted by Brian Poole, they were auditioned by Decca Records on the same day as the Beatles and it was The Tremeloes that got the prized record contract. They had their share of success including a No.1 single (“Do You Love Me?”). After Poole left in 1966, The Tremeloes carried on as a four piece and the following year had a second wave of popularity with hit singles “Here Comes My Baby”, “Even The Bad Times Are Good”, “Silence Is Golden”, “(Call Me) Number One”, all featured here along with highly-regarded psych-pop B-sides, criminally overlooked album tracks, alternative versions, outtakes, foreign language recordings, a live cabaret album and even the first-ever full release of the complete sessions for the 1970 cult movie ‘May Morning’. ‘The Complete CBS Recordings’ gathers everything under one roof for the first – and, almost certainly, the last time.

Featuring no less than 165 tracks in mono, full fat stereo and even electronically-processed stereo (the way the band’s mono-only early recordings were heard at the time in more stereo-oriented countries such as the USA), ‘The Complete CBS Recordings’ is an essential purchase for both the band’s numerous fans and admirers of late Sixties/early Seventies British pop in general. Containing over seven hours of music across six CDs, this stunning package includes a lavish 32-page booklet with a new 5000 word essay on the band’s career, numerous band quotes and a huge number of extremely rare photos of the band in their youthful prime.
