Ralph, The Liverpool EP
Ralph is the collective group of all-stars used by Bongo Beat Records supremo Ralph Alfonso for his garage rock/jazz solo projects. This 3-track CD EP veers more into pop and garage rock and features guest appearances by Dave Rave (Teenage Head), The Plastic Heroes, Ari Shine, Buck Cherry (The Modernettes) and Gord Nichols (The Pointed Sticks). Lead track is ""Billy Fury, Billy Fury"" a Joe Meek style tribute to the UK's greatest rocker that has been championed by DJ and rock historian Spencer Leigh (he wrote the Fury book & also mentions this song in his definitive book on The Cavern Club) on BBC Merseyside where Ralph has also performed this live. "Yesterday And Today" is a tribute to the DJs of 60s Pirate Radio who became prisoners of rock'n'roll so that the UK airwaves could be free. Recorded in Liverpool, "People That Love Forgot" is a garage medley that pays tribute to Liverpool and the rock heroes of 60s Merseybeat.
