"Big Time: The Life of Adam Faith" by David & Caroline Stafford

Big Time: The Life of Adam Faith by David & Caroline Stafford is a new biography of Adam to be published on the 13th April.

The book consists of more than three hundred pages divided into thirty-seven chapters and, as might be expected, is a highly detailed, no holds barred account of Adam's life and career. It's impossible to say if Adam's family cooperated with the book, but we suspect they may not have done.

The book is littered with stories and quotes from Adam and others involved with his career such as composer Johnny Worth, manager Eve Taylor, photographer Terry O'Neill, his wife, Jackie, business associate Andrew Tribe and various members of The Roulettes.

The authors have clearly scanned newspaper archives and previously published books for any substantial stories and quotes from incidents that occurred during Adam's life, and there are references to over 100 examples of this. We cannot provide any details of photographs at this stage, but suffice it to say we know the book will contain some!

The discography is very much a selective one, but this website is (quite rightly) suggested as a good source for a more complete one!

A more comprehensive review of the book will follow once we have a physical copy, but in the meantime I suspect no fan of Adam will want to miss this book. It can be pre-ordered via Amazon, and, no doubt, from similar outlets.

Geoff Barker's Rock n roll Party

BBC Bristol programmes Geoff Barker's Rock n roll Party Available since today, February 5, with 7 days left.

It will be his Pop stuff, though. Includes a never before broadcast interview with Adam Faith in which he talks about John Barry, who died suddenly on January 30.

For those who missed this due to short-notice (though I'm sure it can be heard on listen-again) Geoff said the entire Adam Faith interview (one hour!) will be broadcast next month - possibly 5th or 12th.


December 25, 2010

What do you Want?

On January 4th 2011 a new Adam Faith CD is being released. Ultra cheap at £3.99 from amazon.co.uk, "What do you Want?" comprises of 28 tracks all from 1958-1960. We don't know the label, Xtra, but since all the tracks will be in public domain by January 2011, it's possible this is nothing to do with EMI.

The track-listing appears to consist of the LP, Adam, plus the various singles up to and including Lonely Pup. All tracks have previously appeared on CD so this is probably just for the completist. Still, at only £3.99 .....!

We do not know if the complete performance of Adam & the JB7 will be included, but at only £14.99 for over 8 hours of vintage TV it's probably worth taking a chance!

Available from 8th November from Amazon.co.uk and other outlets.

Update

BBC iPlayer. Listen again. Good stuff from Vic, as you would expect. It's not all about John Barry (though mostly) but definitely worth a listen. Fast forward about one hour 25 minutes to get to Vic's interview. A number of Adam Faith tracks are included.

Vic Flick guests on Spencer Leigh's show on BBC Radio Merseyside

OK, this is advance notice and might amount to nothing much, but worth checking out.

Saturday 21 March 2009 (from 5.30pm) - Vic Flick, guitarist with the John Barry Seven and featured on the James Bond Theme.

Since Spencer is very much a fan of Adam and will be talking to Vic about his recently-published biography in which Adam features quite a lot, I would have thought it quite likely he will be discussed.

Nevada Resident Recovers Lost Rock ‘n Roll Photo Archive
Ian Wright’s Photos Reveal Early Origins of The Beatles,
Rolling Stones, Elton John, Tom Jones, Jimi Hendrix and others
Book also contains amazing images of Adam Faith

Las Vegas resident Ian Wright, a career photojournalist, recently recovered his photo archive that had been lost for 45 years and has published “On The Brink of Fame, Pop Stars In The Swinging ‘60s. This historic, mostly unpublished photographic archive of the Northeast of England reveals the nightclub origins of such icons as The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Roy Orbison, Ike and Tina Turner, Tom Jones, Engelbert Humperdink, Jimi Hendrix, Elton John and Johnny Cash. The archive reveals intimate back-stage portraits of eager, young performers unsure of whether they would flop or ascend to fame and fortune.

The book also contains amazing images of Adam Faith (an especially good atmospheric headshot and Ian Wright's favorite image in the whole book), a photo of Adam with Sandi Shaw (March 1965) and a photo of Adam with The Roulettes - also March 1965. There are several references to him in the editorial text as well.

BBC 4 showing BEAT GIRL MOVIE TONIGHT (11th Jan) AT 7.40 PM

 

December 30, 2007

Five-time Oscar-winner John Barry is the UK's premier composer of film music, having written for more than one hundred films. 2007 marks his 50th year in the music business, in a career which has progressed from leading a pop group to becoming a multiple award-winning composer. This should be recognised with the top honour by the country of his birth.

http://petitions.pm.gov.uk/JohnBarry/

This facility is only open to British citizens or residents or ex-pats. But we thought everybody might like to see it and sign if you are eligible and think it's a good idea. "We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to award John Barry a Knighthood."

Submitted by Geoff Leonard - Deadline to sign up by: 08 March 2008 -

It's very easy and won't involve getting any "spam" from the Prime Minister! ;-)

Adam Faith - The Lost Tracks

The following songs were sung by Adam 'live' on BBC's Drumbeat series in 1959. Only one of the shows was pre-recorded (and there is not much chance of that having survived) so unless anybody recorded the shows onto a tape-recorder, it's unlikely they will ever be heard again.

"The day I met Adam Faith ... "

Well, I never did. The closest I came was when he was appearing at Bath Theatre Royal and I was going to try and get him to sign the double CD booklet for which I had co-written the notes. Alas, the management were not very co-operative and the moment was lost.

But I know many of you out there did meet Adam and we'd like to share your story with our visitors. It doesn't have to be a literary prize-winner, just write your story in your own words and we'll be delighted to publish it.

We are making a concerted effort to improve the Google search ranking for this site. It is already number 1 on msn.com but very low indeed on Google and not a great deal better on Yahoo.

We think we have done all the right things to boost its ratings, via links from other sites etc., but have made little impact to date.

Searching under "Adam Faith website" makes a big difference - we are actually no. 5 on Google - but we need it to work with just an "Adam Faith" search.

Feel free to suggest anything to Webmaster Ruud!!

Paul Garwoord sent us some intereting notes on Adam Faith's music:

The single version of.. "I Survived" is Not the same as the LP version, it does Not have the long instrumental intro that we all enjoyed so much on the LP version, also on the LP "Adam" PCS 3010 the Stereo version only.. The song "So Many Ways" is a different Take to the version released on there Mono LP..the vocal interpretation is different....and on the LP "From Adam With Love" the track "Goin' Home" PCS 3038 the Stereo version only.. Has a slightly different arrangement to the one released on the Mono LP....maybe not many people would have noticed this..but as I am a retired Orchestral musician you tend to notice these details.

Another interesting thing on the LP "From Adam With Love" if you listen carefully to the backing group on the track "Swimming In Tears" you will hear..who I think is Sandie Shaw...this is more noticeable as the track fades out, has anybody else notice this?

Also a piece of info I know of is..and it's true because Adam told me,, in the middle of the song "Someone Has Taken Maria Away" Bob Henrit the Drummer drops his High-Hat Cymbal on the floor, but this was very well edited by the technicians of the time and they left some of it in the final release, if you listen carefully you can hear this.

The recently released CD of "The Very Best of Adam Faith" on EMI Gold.. The track "My Last Wish" is an out take..and is very poor...why they didn't use the released version is beyond belief.

We have decided to link to the Adam Faith Yahoo discussion group and not create a forum of our own.
