Hear Martin Barre before he joined Jethro Tull!
Three rare Martin Barre tracks with the The Penny Peeps in 1968 are now available from iTunes, Rhapsody, Amazon and many other sites.
MEET ME AT THE FAIR*HELEN DOESN´T CARE*INTO MY LIFE SHE CAME (Martin Barre on flute and guitar). The special release also features three unissued late 1965 tracks by Brian Stevens and Mike Ketley´s previus group The Noblemen.
All tracks have beeen carefully restored from the original reference acetates.
Little is known about the Penny Peeps, aside from the fact that they recorded two hopelessly obscure, yet highly collectable singles, which today fetch ridiculous sums of money. Collectors may be surprised to learn, however, that the Penny Peeps’ guitarist was none other than future Jethro Tull axe man Martin Barre (b. 17 November 1946, Birmingham), who had joined the band in 1966 when it was known as the Noblemen. (Nick Warburton).
