Yes It Is
 
Yes It Is Quantity in Basket: None
Price: $15.00
Artist: Rockin' Horse
 
 
Quantity:
 

Rockin' Horse's “Yes It Is” is a 1971 Merseybeat gem that’s been rightfully celebrated as an early power pop classic.  This expanded reissue, containing 3 bonus tracks, was meticulously remastered by Prof. Stoned and richly packaged with photos and notes, showcases the combined genius of songwriters Jimmy Campbell (23rd Turnoff) and Billy Kinsley (Liverpool Express, The Merseys).  It's more than just a must-have for music enthusiasts; it's a tribute to Liverpool's vibrant rock heritage, spotlighting Jimmy Campbell as one of the era's most unsung artist/songwriters.  “Jimmy Campbell and Billy Kinsley were masters of English Beat music.  Students of American R&B, The Everly Brothers and the Shirelles, the pair could marry a hard rocking groove to a pop hook with ease and could blend their voices into beautiful close harmony.  The band itself was a figment of the studio, a one-off ensemble gathered at Majestic Studios in Clapham, South London, to make the great 60’s rock album four years too late. A simple, earnest endeavor, the album is the product of working musicians who came up playing every night in the clubs.  Both performed regularly at The Cavern Club in Liverpool and emerged from the same milieu as the pair’s most obvious sound-alike and admitted influence, the Fab Four. The guitars hit hard on ‘Yes It Is’, but it’s the band’s lyrical style that sets them apart.  Rockin’ Horse were confessional, observational, dramatic.  Billy Kinsley explained that the general idea for the album was to write songs in the style of the music that turned us both on and didn’t go along with what the record companies wanted.  Thankfully for us, they succeeded! They were survivalists of a wasteland genre that had fallen out of vogue.” - Aquarium Drunkard  GREAT!!
