Commissioned by legendary record producer and former creative head of the Jimi Hendrix Estate Alan Douglas in 1990, the cleverly titled "If 60's Were 90's" by the band Beautiful People, is a totally unique and seminal record. Consisting of over fifty guitar riffs, vocal cut-outs, out-take lead breaks, and word raps from guitar god Jimi Hendrix, "If '60s Were 90's" also features spoken steals from Brian Jones of the Rolling Stones, Experience drummer Mitch Mitchell, 60's blues guitarist Mike Bloomfield and a party called the "Milky Way Express" that included the one and only Frank Zappa. Like some Groovy Psychedelic time-machine cruising the Hendrixphere, Beautiful People pluck from over 30 different Hendrix recordings, writing nine new songs creating a sound that arguably helped kick off the rock dance crossover phenomenon of the early '90s, bringing guitars back into dance music while still retaining the psychedelic rock majesty of one of the greatest guitarists of the 20th Century. It all began when Singer/ Guitarist turned Acid House promoter Duncan Elder AKA Du Kane teamed up with Keyboardist/Studio Tech Whizz Luke Baldry, and created a one-off Hendrix sampled house track that found it's way to Eric Clapton. Eric initially wanted to release the track but on managerial advice generously passed it on to Alan Douglas, (who ironically had been looking for an "environment" for the sampling of Hendrix at that time.) Douglas gave the gig to Kane and Baldry, the boys decided to name the band after Kane's Acid House promotion company "Beautiful People" a name inspired by and attributed to author Ken Kesey and his team of 60's Merry Pranksters. The album was complete in July 1992 with live drums recorded by Robin Goodridge (later of BUSH fame) and first released in 1993 on Castle Communications Essential label with remixes by Killing Joke bassist and Legendary producer YOUTH (Pink Floyd, Verve, U2.) The album was generally well-received even if the idea of it did freak out some purists, but it proved to be a grower. In 94 Beautiful People toured Europe supporting HAWKWIND, then on the personal request of Noel Gallagher toured the UK on the OASIS "Definitely Maybe" tour. This box set contains the fully remastered album, on one CD, a second disc of remixes from various artist, a 3rd disc of remixes by producer Youth, a DVD, paper parts & a signed and numbered certificate.
