CHRIS FARLOWE - Out Of Time: The Immediate Anthology (1999)
Chris Farlowe is an English pop, R&B and soul singer. He is best known for his hit single "Out of Time", which rose to #1 in the UK in 1966, and his association with Colosseum and The Thunderbirds. As an English R&B star of the early 1960s, Farlowe released the single "Stormy Monday Blues" under the pseudonym Little Joe Cook, which helped perpetuate the myth that he was black. Farlowe's musical career began with a skiffle group, The John Henry Skiffle Group in 1957, before he joined The Johnny Burns Rhythm and Blues Quartet, in 1958. He met guitarist Bob Taylor in 1959 and through Taylor joined The Thunderbirds, who went onto record five singles for the Columbia label. Farlowe moved to Andrew Loog Oldham's Immediate label and recorded eleven singles, five of which were cover versions of Rolling Stones songs including ("Paint It, Black", "Think", "Ride On, Baby", "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" and "Out of Time"). Farlowe's single "Out of Time" reached #1 (1966) in the UK Singles Chart. He recorded four more singles, the best known of which is Mike d'Abo"'s Handbags and Gladrags". Farlowe sang vocals for the theme music written by Greenslade for the BBC TV series Gangsters. He began an association with the jazz rock group Colosseum in the 1970s, recording a live album and three studio albums including, Daughter of Time (1970). Later in the next millennium he would appear on two more Colosseum albums . In 1972 he joined Atomic Rooster and is featured on the albums Made in England (1972) and Nice 'n' Greasy (1973). He also sang on three tracks from Jimmy Page's Death Wish II soundtrack (1982), as well as the tracks "Hummingbird", "Prison Blues" and "Blues Anthem" on Page's album Outrider. - wikipedia
