GEORGIE FAME: The Whole World’s Shaking (5CD+Book Box Set)

‘The Whole World’s Shaking' The Complete Recordings 1963-66’ is a five-disc CD Box Set with expanded editions of the albums ‘Rhythm And Blues At The Flamingo’, ‘Fame At Last’, ‘Sweet Things’ and ‘Sound Venture’ – each featuring a multitude of extra tracks. The fifth disc entitled ‘Bend A Little' Demos, Rarities, B-Sides And Outtakes’ is packed with rare treasures (including 18 previously unreleased tracks) from the period, sourced following a worldwide search of tape libraries. Extensive liner notes come courtesy of author Chris Welch and the inner booklet features many previously unseen photos.

Hugely admired and respected by his fellow musicians, Georgie has played live or recorded with some of music’s all-time legends including; Van Morrison, Count Basie, Eric Clapton, Muddy Waters, Elvis Costello, Bill Wyman, Jools Holland and many more. This collection is the most comprehensive look yet at the period when his incredible musical talent met the white-hot explosion of the early-‘60s jazz and beat booms. Popular music would never be the same again.
