CARLO LITTLE was the sound of the 60′s.Loud exciting and always in step with what was going on. He was the drummer the ROLLING STONES wanted but couldn’t afford! He provided the beat behind CYRIL DAVIES ALL STARS and was the driving force in SCREAMING LORD SUTCH’S SAVAGES and he taught the young KEITH MOON how to play!

This album never released before was recorded in 2000 shortly before Carlo fell ill and sadly died in 2005 with the tapes languishing in limbo. But now it can be heard with it’s ‘All Star’ cast.

Carlo recruited bassist (and sometime early Stone) RICK BROWN, ART WOOD (Artwoods), LONG JOHN BALDRY (who was in Cyril Davies All Stars with Carlo), MATTHEW FISHER (Procol Harum but who had also been in The Savages) squeezebox king GERAINT WATKINS (now a regular part of Bill Wyman’s Rhythm Kings) and Rolling Stone RON WOOD who teamed up with his brother Art on some of the tracks

On this album Carlo and other musicians make sure his name remains up there with the legends of the 60′s. Keep on rockin’ indeed.

Reviews

Featuring the talents of Ronnie Wood, Matthew Fisher of Procul Harum, The Chanter Sisters and Long John Baldry, Carlo has recorded a mix of old and familiar songs with some original material.

'It's All Over Now' pays homage to his mates in the Rolling Stones, and 'Iko Iko' shows Baldry's voice at it's best.

'Midnight Special', a traditional folk song features a rare pairing of Ronnie Wood and his brother Art.

All in all, this is a perfect tribute to one of the sixties' true legends.

Martin Hutchinson, Bolton News (January 2009)


...the drummer's friends were real stars who in 2001 helped their friend record this collection of chestnuts...

...a rootsy, almost Louisiana take on the music of his past...It's largely a collection of good time tunes...

Maverick (January 2009)


...a posthumous tribute package, with the CD booklet carrying Carlo's story and photos from over the years...very enjoyable from the start

The Beat (March 2009)


...the entire album feels like dipping into any subterranean club, any London suburb circa 1963-1964, leaning back against the wall and letting the music just wash over you. It's an electrifying disc, and a fitting tribute to one of the era's most infuriatingly unsung heroes

Dave Thompson, All Music Guide (March 2009)


The release of this excellent and stirring album takes us back directly into the delicious sixties. (***1 / 2)

Highlands, France (April 2009)


The man who taught Keith Moon how to play tackled some fine golden oldies.. . Kevin Bryan, Stirling Advertiser (July 2009)


It's an electrifying disc, and a fitting tribute to one of the era's most infuriatingly unsung heroes.
