Rhino Best of PPM has clean version of Puff
I think it's so cool your son loves to listen to this stuff. You taught him well!
Thanks, my kids have great taste in music, not all my doing, they discover stuff on their own. I love it.
If I would have had a girl that cute by my side at that young age (and also THAT head of hair), along with having a father who must have some of the most impressive playback equipment of all time, I would've been the "coolest" kid EVER! When that boy gets home from school today I say sit him (and that young lady) down and crank up some Dave Clark Five and report back on their response. I remember how I felt alone in my bedroom after hearing "Try Too Hard" the first time ..., ALIVE!
His favorite DC5 is "Because" so there ya go!
That is a gorgeous record. Whoever set the compressor on the mono mix hit the sweet spot - it's perfection!
Your son has good taste in music! I'm not quite as young as him, but I'm 20. Good to know there are other guys roughly my age that dig "Because"
Adrian Kerridge recorded and mixed that, four track to mono at Landsdown Studios, Holland Park. Great studio, Joe Meek was there, etc.
I’m terrible at guessing kids ages (my wife makes fun of that fact all the time when I even try) but when I was in middle school and into high school I really gravitated towards that well made 60s pop music - mostly UK, but we made some good stuff in the US too! “Because” was always one of the best. WDRC in Hartford always had a great Oldies channel which is where I heard most of it initially. I still love that stuff and am happy to share it with my teen kids.
