Tom Newman  - Fine Old Tom mp3 flac

Complete your Tom Newman collection. Apart from a few clunkers, this is a forgotten gem of an album. Pitched somewhere between eccentric pop, psychedelic folk and even a touch of music-hall, the albums highlight must surely be the mesmerising "Song For . a touching ballad recorded on a Summer's day in the gardens of the Manor, bookended by a typically atonal Fred Frith guitar solo.

Wednesday, November 15, 2017. Born in 1943 in the United Kingdom, Tom Newman has a varied career as musician, collaborator, composer and producer. He initially started with the band called Playboy formed in the early 60's playing mainly R & B and skiffle sounds. this line up went on to form the band July and had some measurable success in Europe, particularly Spain.

Not to be confused with Thomas Newman. Thomas Dennis "Tom" Newman (born 11 July 1943 in Perivale) is an English record producer and musician (rhythm guitar). In 1970 he began working with Richard Branson and helped to found The Manor Studio in Oxford for the nascent Virgin Records. There, he produced the recording of Mike Oldfield's Tubular Bells. In 1968 he played in a band called July whose only album was the eponymous "July" on UK Major Minor and US Epic.

A real sleeper, Fine Old Tom is a relatively obscure yet refreshing original pop/prog-rock project constructed by Newman and his pals, with Jon Field, Mike Oldfield, Ned Callan, Chris Cutler and Fred Frith in the starring roles. Everything on this eclectic album is done with original style and vigor to spare, convention being left by the wayside. Even Newman's cover of Lennon/McCartney's "She Said She Said" is inventive. Beatles influences are obvious in several of the pop-oriented compositions. Album highlights include the energetic "Nursery Rhyme," a prog piece.
