Performer Notes
  • COUNTRY SECT is the 1965 remastered reissue of raw '60s British blues rockers The Downliners Sect featuring "Rocks In My Head," "Wait For The Lights To Shine," and six bonus tracks including "Leader Of The Sect."
  • The second Downliners Sect album has always confused the uninitiated because of its title. At the insistence of their producer, Mike Collier, the band plays some country music such as "Ballad of the Hounds" and "Wolverton Mountain," but also branches into folkier sounds on "Hard Travellin'" (done in country style, but known best in the early '60s as a folk standard) and even brushes up against protest music on "Little Play Soldiers," but the big surprise comes with gospel numbers like "Wait for the Light to Shine" and "Waiting in Heaven." The group's primitive nature comes through loud and clear on the loud Bo Diddley-based backbeat on "I Got Mine" and most of the rest here, which not only makes a lot of it work really well but generally turns this album into yet another brilliant outing for the band, if not quite the same as the first album. Oh, and then the country blues here -- represented by the scintillating five-minute-long "Rock in My Bed" -- is pretty intense, especially for five white English guys, and shows some blues chops that weren't on the debut album. ~ Bruce Eder
