SOLD OUT !!!
Exactly 48 years ago two gifted young songwriters from Livingston, New Jersey named Jimmer Glynn and Alan Rackin came to England in order to audition for Apple – following an invitation by Derek Taylor six weeks earlier. On 1 April 1970, they duly arrived in London and were welcomed by Derek, who encouraged them to make some demos. A few days later, on 11 April, they returned to 3 Savile Row to present an albums’ worth of recordings. By then The Beatles had broken up and so did Jimmer and Alan’s dream to be signed. Until now, no one outside a small circle has heard those recordings. By kind permission of Jimmer Glynn, Apcor Books and Records were proud to present Far Away Country Day – The Complete Apple Demos – an excellent batch of catchy folky tunes not unlike the sort of music George Harrison would later be attracted to, by Splinter.
