Review

Featured in Clash and Deminzine. 'With beautiful photographs plus record sleeves, ads and memorabilia, Immediate Records is essential reading for the sharp dresser' Mojo 'Full of photos of artists and record sleeves, many of them rarely seen -- plus contemporary music paper cuttings and adverts reflecting Immediate's buccaneering flair for publicity and packaging' The Beat 'A unique look at the UK record labels, the arc of their histories, and the specifics of their development and success' Under the Radar

Format: Paperback
I love this book, besides Apple Records, Immediate Records seems to have a following too. I was overjoyed when I saw this book reviewed in Record Collector - so I convinced my Friends to order it on Amazon for me. (That was a while ago - life is simpler now.) What I discovered is Simon Spence interviewed Oldham and people associated with him to put together both "Stoned" books. Immediate Records came about from the cutting room floor! Simon Spence has a lot of facts and devotes pages to bands like Small Faces, Humble Pie, The ice , Twice as Much. Then little known facts like the background, behind the scenes session men. A discography is included (let me point out - on my Bang Record Mc COYS single "Hang on Sloopy" the B-side is "I Can't Explain it". They are even singing "explain". a 1979 Immediate fanzine lists the B-side "I Can't Believe it"- hence the mistake followed..............Perhaps the UK label listed it wrong? -Just had to throw it out there.....) Anyhow- there aren't any other Immediate books out there and the liner notes to Various Artists (Immediate Records) don't cover whats in the book.. I have read it twice myself. (By the way Andrew Oldham has two other books - one is "Stone Free" and forgot the other title.But he goes on and on about his inspirations - you wont find any reminiscences about the stones in its entirety if one reads all these books.......)

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It's a large paperback, with tons of photos, ads and promotion weirdness. It looks like it's a complete account of this important record label of the 1960's.

However, the cover is rubber cemented to the binding and it came apart during the first read of the book. Also, there's a bunch of minor errors:

1. They do mention useful information about "Out Of Time" being issued in the US on MGM (and how that came about), but they failed to mention the two Twice As Much singles issued on MGM.

2. They do not mention that Small Faces' "Here Comes The Nice" and P.P. Arnold's "First Cut Is The Deepest" were issued on the short-lived US Immediate label, distributed by United Artists, at all!

3. They say that Steve Marriott produced The Herd's "Sunshine Cottage" on Deram Records. Problem is it was issued on Fontana Records.

The overall story is spot on, but it was not spot checked to fix any errors.
