- The Best of

The Best of

The Best of

Ashton, Gardner & Dyke really were the best when it came to delivering pop, soul, rock and jazz with heart-warming zeal and enthusiasm. With Tony Ashton fronting the group on vocals, piano and organ, this powerful trio grabbed audiences and record buyers alike with their dynamic sound.

They hit the charts with 'Resurrection Shuffle' in 1970 and that irresistible rave up takes pride of place at the head of this superb 20 track collection. With Roy Dyke on drums and Kim Gardner on bass, the trio was augmented by brass players and guitarists that even included old pals Eric Clapton and George Harrison.

Here is a rich variety of entertaining performances from singles and albums such as 'What A Bloody Long Day It's Been' and 'The Worst Of Ashton, Gardner & Dyke' that reflect the exuberant personality and musical tastes of the late Tony Ashton, a sorely missed musical maestro. The CD liner notes tell the story of the band, its roots, successes and ultimate demise.
