Ray Columbus
Now You Shake

[ RPM / Frenzy / CD ]

Release Date: Monday 21 March 2016

At last, a Ray Columbus release that covers his entire 60s recordings. From 1963 until late 1965 Ray Columbus & the Invaders reigned supreme in New Zealand and Australia with their unique brand of pop and R&B.

They toured with some of the biggest names from the period. Roy Orbison thought they were the loudest group that he had ever heart. The Rolling Stones would watch them from the side of the stage, Bill Wyman gifted his Vox prototype teardrop bass to the Invaders bassist Billy Kristian as a mark of respect, Del Shannon wanted them as his permanent band, The Yardbirds were desperate to get their hands on their song Now You Shake for a possible single release before a war between the publishers brought an end to negotiations.

By mid-1966, a solo Ray arrived in the USA to the headline 'America Discovers Columbus' where he became part of the happening scene in San Francisco. Before the year's end Ray was performing alongside Love, The Chocolate Watchband and The Turtles. By early 1967 he had formed his own American label Colstar and recorded the psych punk classic 'Kick Me'.

For the first time you can hear 29 tracks that combine Ray's Invaders period with the best of his San Francisco and New Zealand solo recordings from the Sixties. This is the definitive album of this legendary figure, affectionately referred to locally as The Modfather.
