Casey Jones & The Governors - The Best Of





Брайян Кэссер после неудачной карьеры в Ливерпуле конца 50-х – начала 60-х с группой Cass & The Cassanova's (тогда другие участники просто выгнали солиста и стали называться Big Three), двинулся в Лондон и стал менеджером клуба Blue Gardenia в Сохо. После начала рок-бума организовал Engeneers вместе с гитаристами Эриком Клэптоном и Томом Макгинессом. Впрочем, эти участники продержались несколько недель и были заменены. В родной Англии группа записала всего один сингл, а затем двинулась в Германию, где уже под именем Casey Jones And The Governors получила свою долю славы и записала два альбома. Кэссер и его команда исповедовала чистый мерсийский саунд, тоесть предельно простой, чисто гитарный бит-рок. В 90-е Кэссер вновь организовал Casey Jones And The Governors и на волне ностальгии стал собирать немало старых поклонников, ублажая их слух самыми известными своими номерами – Don’t Ha Ha и Yockomo. ~  Rockarchives, Yalinc

 
This is his first known group. They formed in December 1959.
CASS & THE CASANOVAS :
Brian Casser was later more known as Casey Jones.
They split in December 1960, but formed a new band.
Casser had originally led one of Liverpool's leading groups, Cass & the Cassanova's, from 1959-60. The other members of the group ousted him and became the Big Three. He moved to London in 1961 and became the manager of the Blue Gardenia club in Soho.
In 1963, after the Liverpool groups had exploded in a big way, he decided to put another group together and formed the Engineers. Clapton and McGuinness were only with the band for a few weeks and Casser brought in David Coleman and Roger Cook to replace them.
CASS & THE CASANOVAS :
Brian Casser (vocals, guitar)
Adrian Barber (guitar)
Johnny Gustafson (bass)
Johnny Hutchinson (drums, vocals)
The Beatles did a short tour in Scotland with Johnny Gentle,

Casey Jones & The Engineers :
In October 1963, Eric signed on with Merseybeat band, Casey Jones & The Engineers. A pop outfit, group members wore matching uniforms and confederate caps. Eric left after a few weeks of touring, but later said it helped him get his chops together.
The lineup of Casey Jones & The Engineers during Eric’s tenure was:
Brian Casser (vocals)
Eric Clapton (guitar)
Dave McCumisky (bass)
Tom McGuinness (guitar)
Ray Stock (drums)
Eric Clapton worked briefly with him in October 1963 as a sideman in The Engineers.
They only released one single in Britain before moving to Germany where they proved more popular under the name Casey Jones and the Governors, having several chart entries and recording two LP's for the Gold 12 label.
