ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
February 9, 1964, The Ed Sullivan Show - The Beatles; The moment that marked the beginning of the British music invasion also inspired millions of young people to become musicians.

TF Harper’s debut solo EP Vintage UK is a tribute to the British invasion and its influence on popular music. “Pictures of Matchstick Men” (Status Quo), “Walking Through My Dreams” (The Pretty Things), “See Emily Play” (Pink Floyd), and “Paper Sun” (Traffic) are the four songs featured. 

Vintage UK showcases Harper’s formidable talent not only as a musician, but as a master producer and sound technician.  His aim was to recreate an authentic “60s-sounding” version of these songs.  The renditions sound extraordinarily accurate when compared to the original versions, yet still maintain a sense of originality.  In addition to engineering, producing, and mastering, Harper is the only artist on the EP, playing 6 & 12 string acoustic and electric guitars, lap steel, 4 & 8 string bass, organ, Mellotron, piano, drum sequencing/programming, and performing all of the vocals.

Reflecting on the creation of the album, Harper says: “I can easily recall the exhilaration of hearing these songs for the first time as a kid with big rock and roll dreams.  Planning and recording them again brought back that same heady feeling, with so many cool memories of that powerful, electrifying era.”

Skip subway and use your 5 bucks for this...
I once knew someone in a band that described their set as the B-sides of the 70's. Entertaining? Not so much.

On the other hand, I am experiencing extreme entertainment with this collection. The song choices are spot on, the performance is top notch, and the production is stellar! The louder I play them the more lush they sound and THAT'S a testament to someone taking their time and doing it right!
