I found something of the Dennisons. Nice little song. I had never heard of this Merseyside band until I visited this site.

Ever heard the Big 3 live at the Cavern? It has Bob Wooller introducing them then they break into some amazing live tracks including What'd I Say - sounds absolutely awesome!!!

Apparently so, I can't remember who, but one of the members custom-built their amplifiers.

By the way - I have the original Live At The Cavern EP (with the Bob Woller intro) - if anyone's interested in hearing it please give me a shout. :)

As promised THIS is "The Big 3", a totally amazing and sadly over-looked band, recorded LIVE at the CAVERN CLUB in 1963!!!!

This is taken directly from my original vinyl EP so please excuse some of the little pops and squeaks!! Enjoy, and let me know what you think - this really IS AWESOME STUFF! ;D

Thanks a lot, Alan! This must have been a great band to watch live on stage. On the other hand, I can see why the Beatles were something special even back in the early days. The Big 3's choice of covers (Zip-A-Dee-Do-Dah) is from a lower level in my opinion. It's just not that electrifying, although the backcover tells us something else. Still, it has always been a bit of a mystery to me why bands like this and Rory Storm never hit the big time like The Beatles or even failed to score some hits like Gerry and the Pacemakers did... Their quality seems to be alright...

BIG THREE
Merseybeat trio, claimed to be the first beat group in Liverpool, formed from late-'50s Cass And The Casanovas: Casey Jones, rhythm guitar; Adrian Barber, lead guitar, John Gustavson, bass; Johnny Hutchinson, drums. Backed blues singer Duffy Power on package-tour circuit early '60s; dropped Jones and became Big Three '62, so named for 6} stature of members; stood out from Liverpool groups in being trio and in the lead singer being the drummer. Signed by Brian Epstein and sent to Hamburg, where Brian Griffiths replaced Barber; signed by Decca on return (the label had turned down Epstein's Beatles) and released singles: first "Some Other Guy' no. 37 UK '63 considered by Freddy Garrity (Freddy And The Dreamers) as a record that "really typified the Mersey sound.' Second "By The Way' (written by Gerry And The Pacemakers songsmith Mitch Murray) was top 25, but its poppy sound did not represent their hardrocking stage appeal. Their unwillingness to go along with Epstein's insistence on image (as Beatles did with suits etc) and lack of their own material held them up. Live act captured on LP At The Cavern, incl. covers of Chuck Berry's "Reelin' and Rockin'', Ray Charles's "What'd I Say'. Epstein dropped them; Gustavson and Griffiths left to form The Seniors late '63; Hutchinson carried on with Bill "Faron' Russley on bass and vocals, Paddy Chambers on guitar (both ex- Faron's Flamingoes), who left within a year; after trying more replacements Hutchinson hung up the drumsticks. Gustavson played with Merseybeats, Hard Stuff, Quatermass; sessioned with Roxy Music, Gene Pitney, Ian Hunter, Shirley Bassey and others; played on original cast recording of Jesus Christ Superstar; re-formed Big Three for Merseybeat collection Resurrection '73 with Griffiths and Elton John sideman Nigel Olsson on drums. Original tracks were collected on Cavern Stomp on Edsel.

Two of them joined or formed The Seniors - I have a great "Rock Family Tree" Mersey Beat special which covers this - I'll look it up tonight!

What did you think of the tracks Marshall?
