Edgar Jones And The Stairs

Edgar Jones And The Stairs

Ever since emerging with his unashamedly retro combo The Stairs in 1991, Edgar Jones (alias Edgar Summertyme) has carved a splendid niche in exhuming the spirit of mid-60s US garage rock and British R&B.

 

The Liverpudlian singer, songwriter and bassist has now brought his extensive catalogue of over a dozen albums to Cherry Red, from various LPs by The Stairs to the acclaimed N’awlins R&B homage Soothing Music For Stray Cats, and various sessions with short-lived bands The Isrites and The Big Kids (two members of whom went onto be in The Zutons).
