UK three CD set. Born in Canada, singer-songwriter Philip Rambow came to the UK in the early 1970s and co-formed pub rock band The Winkies, who found themselves as backing band to Brian Eno and supporting Lou Reed and Wishbone Ash, as well as recording an album for Chrysalis. Rambow was retained by the label for a solo single, 'Dem Eyes', but a planned album was abandoned. After a brief sojourn in New York at the height of punk (supporting Television at CBGB's and appearing on one of the Max's Kansas City LPs), Philip returned to the UK in 1978. Having appeared on Pub Rock's chart-bound swansong, The Hope And Anchor Front Row Festival album, he signed to EMI for two wonderful solo albums. Both Shooting Gallery (1979) and Jungle Law (1981) were critically acclaimed and Rambow became something of a musician's musician. He also enjoyed significant success with his songs for others, including 'There's A Guy Works Down The Chip Shop Swears He's Elvis', which he co-wrote with singer Kirsty MacColl, and 'Night Out' and 'Young' for Ellen Foley. Thereafter, he continued to write, record and perform but wouldn't commit to his third album until 2015 with the impishly-titled Whatever Happened To Phil Rambow? Recently, Rambow teamed up with Fretsore Records and in 2020 he is as active as ever, with a new album Canadiana. The Rebel Kind is the first retrospective of Philip Rambow's illustrious career, curated by the man himself. His three albums are joined by rare and previously unissued recordings, including his first-ever solo demo from 1972, an early demo of '... Chip Shop', unreleased sessions with Mick Ronson and Hans Zimmer and an unissued original demo of 'Big Tears' (later issued by C. B. I.) with Glen Matlock, James Stevenson and James Hallawell, with the late Gary Holton singing. With a booklet boasting sleeve-notes by journalist and long-time admirer Dave Thompson and a plethora of rare photos, The Rebel Kind is the ultimate tribute to one of the most fondly-regarded if unsung musical talents around. And the compilation ends with two tracks from Philip's new album Canadiana, including the new single 'Oceans Apart'.
