Fanny: Live on Beat Club '71-'72

Are you ready to hear the best live band of the early ‘70s? We at Real Gone Music have been privileged and proud to release Fanny's four classic Reprise albums, each a tuneful testament as to why they were the first all-female band signed to a major label. But there has always been a piece missing from the Fanny fable; for while the band hooked up with big-time producers and engineers like Richard Perry, Todd Rundgren, and Geoff Emerick, their studio albums never really were able to capture the sheer excitement they could generate in concert.

However, buried away in a vault thousands of miles away from their Los Angeles base there long lay a recording that could make the Fanny myth a reality, one that could provide the emphatic answer as to why these four ladies were the hottest ticket on the Sunset Strip during the early ‘70s. Now, over 50 years later, its time-and their time-has come. Live on Beat-Club '71-'72 presents the two sets Fanny recorded for the German TV show, mastered by Mike Milchner of Sonic Vision from hi-res mono files taken from the original videotape. Aside from the incendiary and incredibly tight performances, what immediately becomes apparent is that all four of these women were powerhouses in her own right.

June Millington's stringbending Les Paul wizardry, her sister Jean's driving, melodic bass lines and Janis Joplin-esque vocals, Nickey Barclay's intricate yet somehow rocking keyboard work, and Alice de Buhr's precise, piston-like drumming punctuated by ferocious fills — put together Fanny was an overwhelming display of talent.

Yet somehow, as these shows reveal, live they were greater than the sum of their parts. That's why getting these recordings released has long been a crusade for Alice, and why June tells the story in the accompanying liner notes (which feature contributions from June, Jean, and Alice) that the engineer who was assigned to do the transfers of all the Beat-Club material told her that their material was the best in the vault, better even than Hendrix. Real Gone Music is releasing this invaluable archival recording on juicy peach vinyl with a bonus track of the soundcheck to boot. Essential for a full understanding of ‘70s rock!
