3CD Deluxe Edition of Reg King's self-titled solo album from 1971 containing all his solo recordings. Featuring musicians from The Action/Mighty Baby and Blossom Toes/B. B. Blunder. Original copies of this cult classic album now fetch three figure sums. Reg King was one of the UK's greatest soul singers whose recordings with The Action made him a mod legend. This Deluxe Edition proves that Reg King wasn't just a great singer but a great songwriter too. Disc 1 includes a newly mastered version of the album itself that follows the original United Artists vinyl release track list, including the eight-minutes-plus version of 'Savannah' that has never been on CD before as well as reinstating the children talking at the end of 'Gone Away'. The album includes the Reg King and B. B. Blunder single 'Little Boy' previously recorded by Reg's old group The Action. Also featured on Disc 1 is a planned but unreleased second single - an alternative version of album highlight 'You Go Have Yourself A Good Time' featuring B. B. Blunder backing Reg rather than Mighty Baby as on the album and the non album track 'Nobody Knows Where We Are'. Disc 2 includes earlier 1969 demos where Reg is backed by his former bandmates from The Action and bridging sound-wise The Action's psychedelic 'Rolled Gold' era and Reg's solo album. Disc 3 features album demos and out-takes including early 1969 recordings of four album tracks featuring The Action and an out-take of '10,000 Miles' where Reg is backed by Mighty Baby. Sleeve notes by MOJO magazine's Lois Wilson draw on new interviews with guitarist Brian Godding and drummer Roger Powell.
