Harry J Classics on Doctor Bird

Cherry Red Records have reactivated the Doctor Bird label to reissue music licensed from Trojan. Released on 11 August we have two classic LP’s of Harry J material on one CD: No More Heartaches and What Am I To Do. These LP’s were originally issued in 1969 and 1970 respectively and featured the very strongest of Harry J’s productions from 1968 and ’69 (apart from Liquidator of course).

The majority of these tunes have been re-released multiple times over the years but it’s nice to have them presented as they were on those classic LP’s.
