Jo Jo Zep & The Falcons - Self Titled

This compilation is a handy little addition to your Jo Jo Zep collection.  Put out by the UK label Rockgurgh Records in 1979, it grabs songs from the 'So Young' EP, 'Don't Waste It' LP & 'Whip It Out' LP.  There are many places to begin your journey with Jo Jo, this is a fave of mine.

Jo Jo Zep & The Falcons - Whip It Out

An earlier album from 1977.  It's hard to not like Jo Jo Zep & Co.  They've done all the hard yards by now - playing live every night of the week in pubs and clubs.  With this album, they commit to vinyl and get the ball rolling.  Things later started to happen (particularly with 'Screaming Targets') but here's a good place to begin the journey.

Jo Jo Zep & The Falcons - Ricochet

Jump forward now to 2003 and soak in all the charm that the Falcons can muster.  Neglected album well worth a listen.

Bobby & Laurie - Exposiac

The third and last album recorded in 1967.  After this they split - what a pity.  Great band but this album doesn't match up to their best ('Hitchhiker') nor their first self titled album.  Still, much better than most of the stuff out there.
