Kent are in it for the long haul. Although our first volume of recordings from Al Sears’ Arock and Sylvia labels was issued in 2002, we always intended to continue the story. Since then, more information has been garnered and further reviews of the tapes have revealed some musical treats and surprises. Take the opening track by the Corvairs, ‘Love Is Such A Good Thing’. We have learnt they are probably the same Corvairs who recorded for UA and Columbia and that ‘Deep Down Inside’ on our first CD is by them, rather than an unknown artist. We also now know that Garrett Saunders was in the first incarnation of the duo Gary & Gary, and that the B-side of Tutti Hill’s ‘He’s A Lover’ was identified on the label as ‘When The Going Gets Rough’ but actually played ‘Baby Take It Slow’. ‘When The Going Gets Rough’ gets its CD debut here.
