NME review Apr 3, 1964.


14th Jul 2013
 Gene Robertson, this may have been their last single on HMV with Joe Meek, but they did release one more single on the american "Smash" label.
It was Don't Cry c/w Only For You, produced by Joe Meek protege, Derek Lawrence.

 This may have been The Outlaws only record to have Vocals on both sides, but The Outlaws other vocal disc was the A-side "That Set The Wild West Free" .

"Keep A Knockin' " & "Shake With Me" feature Chas Hodges as the Vocalist & Bass Player.
It's Ken Lundgren (also Rhythm Guitar) shouting "Go Away!" on the begining of " Keep A Knockin' "
Mick Underwood (later of The Herd, Quatermass,Gillan) is the drummer.
Ritchie (then known as either "Ricky" or "Richie" with no T in his name) Blackmore on Lead Guitar.

 No, Billy Kuy was long gone. He played on the first three Outlaws singles. The line up on this one was Mick Underwood, Ken Lundgren, Chas Hodges and Ritchie Blackmore.

 Was Billy Kuy on this as well as Blackmore?

 A radical change for The Outlaws being their only vocal disc... vocals on both sides too. Despite that factor the star of the show is undeniably guitarist Ritchie Blackmore. The A side is a frantic stomping version of the song popularised by Little Richard containing several excellent Blackmore guitar breaks. The B side is similarly styled and a moment Blackmore himself remembers fondly saying it was the first time he was allowed to let loose on record, with Joe Meek allowing him a lengthy solo where he was free to play whatever he liked. Ritchie seized the opportunity in great style pulling out some demented manic playing proving that even in these early days, Blackmore was one mean lead guitarist.
