  1. Hi all, some fantastic scans here, my favourite period is the mod period so that includes THE LISTEN . i'm the editor of a blog called Jackthatcatwasclean that is archiving original mod/ern/ists stories, videos, ... and we also have a chat group on Facebook . The LISTEN was part of the discussion recently . here are some memories from an original mod from Birmingham who's seen the band on several occasions during the sixties . comment about the article in Midland Beat # 34 about Robert Plant : "Seen him with Listen, he was brilliant!!" "they did a lot of their own stuff, very bluesy R&B very much like the early Stones, can't remember specific songs as they were only local lads playing in birmingham, can't remember them recording anything, they just went round the clubs, but they did a lot of other peoples stuff too, like John lee hooker, and simular! did instrumental stuff too, but brilliant to see and dance to." "did soul cover versions too, a bit of everything Soul, jazz, R&B, and Blues ! they were a great band to watch and very underated." "Great presence on stage!!!" comment on the Wolverhampton Express and Star 3rd Mach 1966 (the RSG / Stoke on Trent story) . "Thats what they were like! they liked to stay local !! couldn't understand them they were so good!!!"
