In stock


**2019 stock, reduced price** Big Jim Sullivan was a well-known session musician in his time and was asked by many bands including The Who, The Rolling Stones, The Animals, Lulu, The Kinks to name just a few. Going to a music school must have been a novel idea as Big Jim had been playing guitar on sessions since 1957, resulting in his presence on more UK hits than anyone else. He studied with a famous Indian sitar player who gave Jim the necessary insight to be a creditable player. The result was that Jim was being asked to record on even more sessions. After studying at the music school Big Jim Sullivan traded in his customary guitar for the sitar and created an uncanny fusion of Eastern and Western music on Sitar Beat. This album was originally released in the late 1960s, when the sitar and other Indian instruments enjoyed a certain degree of popularity in the West as 'exotic' flavors.



The album features a mix of odes and originals with songs like "She's Leaving Home", "Whiter Shade Of Pale", "Sunshine Superman" and "Within Without You".
