The sixties British documentary "Tonite Let's All Make Love In London" was a sign of the times in swinging London, England 50 years ago. While the movie may have opened many eyes to what was happening in the clubs of London, the soundtrack was also as ground-breaking. It featured music by Chris Farlowe, the Small Faces and a little known new band The Pink Floyd. The soundtrack featured some of the first studio recordings of Pink Floyd as well as Chris Farlowe's original version of "Out Of Time" (made popular by The Rolling Stones). Mixed in between the music was interviews with celebrities like Mick Jagger, Michael Caine and Julie Christie, describing what they thought of the sixties London scene. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the "Tonite Let's All Make Love In London" soundtrack, Immediate Records is releasing a newly remastered version of the soundtrack on CD and on pink vinyl.

rock supergroup Captain Beyond took the music world by storm in the
seventies, releasing 3 studio albums in 5 years. The band, consisting of
members of Deep Purple, Iron Butterfly and The Johnny Winter Band, was
asked by Duane Allman, after hearing their demo, to join the Allman
Brothers Band label Capricorn Records. Now, for the first time, those
demos from the band's first album are being released on CD and limited
edition red color vinyl.
new 10-song release begins with a song that did not appear on any
Captain Beyond album, "Uranus Highway," which sounds like if The Allman
Brothers Band became a progressive rock band. The demos sound very clean
for being buried for over 45 years. Songs like "I Can't Feel Nothing"
and "Ragin River Of Fear" showcase the potential this band had as they
combines elements of hard rock, southern rock and progressive rock to
give music a unique, original sound. To find out more about Captain
Beyond and the latest release "Lost & Found 1972-1973," please visit
