The Sect

Here is the first release in a re-issues programme dedicated to the work of the U.K.’s earliest known R&B band. The Downliners Sect began life in 1962 and so pre-date The Beatles and The Stones. Founder member and singer Don Craine helped select the bonus and special bonus tracks included on this CD version of the band’s debut album, originally released on Columbia in 1964.

The songs are mainly R&B classics, the sort of tunes the band played as they toured the clubs, evoking the spirit of Chuck Berry and Jimmy Reed. Also featured are four dynamic performances from the band’s legendary ‘live’ EP that helped launch their recording career.
