WEST COUNTRY LEGENDS OF THE SIXTIES R & B SCENE

The raw Rhythm & Blues sound of The Betterdays has remained etched clearly in the memory of thousands of enthusiastic fans that heard them live, back in the early sixties. Playing all around the West Country to packed houses every night and very much in the vanguard of the exciting new sound that was taking the whole country by storm, The Betterdays were a sensation. Sadly they were all but overlooked by the London-centric music business of the day and their time in the limelight was cut short before they had the opportunity to gain the fame that their contemporaries such as the Stones and the Animals enjoyed. 

Many people yearn to re-live the electric atmosphere of those heady days and, sensationally, they now can – twenty seven tracks were recorded by the band, many of which were not released to the public… but here they are after all those years. What might have been, now is!

NEW 10" EP AVAILABLE NOW

NOW AVAILABLE: Exclusive 45rpm collector's EP – four fabulous tracks from the BACKLASH album, freshly pressed to 10" vinyl.
