For the first time - here's the full story of FANNY ADAMS, featuring VINCE MELOUNEYand DOUG PARKINSON. This is one of Aztec Records' most highly anticipated projects,the first official reissue of Fanny Adams' 1971 self-titled album, a master-class ofmoody, magnificent, riff-based Aussie Heavy Blues Rock.During the 1960s guitarist-producer Vince Melouney had been a member of Billy Thorpe andthe Aztecs, Ray Brown and the Whispers and The Vince Maloney Sect in Australia and - mostsignificantly when he moved to London - the Bee Gees. When he left the brothers Gibb, hesigned a solo deal with MCA Records. Instead of making it a Vince Melouney record, hedecided to make it a band project which resulted in the formation of Fanny Adams. He invitedthe celebrated musicians Doug Parkinson (vocals, Doug Parkinson In Focus), Teddy Toi (bass,Billy Thorpe and the Aztecs), Johnny Dick (drums, Billy Thorpe and the Aztecs, In Focus) tojoin him in London. In early October 1970 Fanny Adams hit Morgan Studios for six weeks ofsong writing and recording sessions.
