Details

Originally hailing from London, collectable Sixties Beat combo The Deejays only had two singles issued in the UK but proved to be much more popular in Sweden, where they were based and scored several hits and made two albums.
COMING ON STRONG is the first UK CD retrospective of this highly-rated band. Originally billed as Johnny Vallons & The Deejays, they were invited to Sweden in 1963 by the manager of The Spotnicks: they came for a two month tour and remained for five years!
All of the group’s key tracks from 1965-1967 are included on this 28-track compilation, including highlights from the albums The “Deejays” (1966) and “Haze” (1967).
The sleeve-notes include quotes from Clive Sarstedt (alias Robin Sarstedt, brother of Peter Sarstedt and Eden Kane), who served time with The Deejays for a year or so.
 Copies of ‘Coming On Strong’ on UK Polydor sell for up to £100, fuelled by demand for this Mod/R&B collector’s classic. The two Swedish-only albums sell for even more!
