UPP C/W This Way UPP

UPP C/W This Way UPP

About this release

UPP was a British rock-jazz fusion band, active in the 1970s. The group was originally going to be called 3 UPP, and consisted of Stephen Amazing (bass guitar), Andy Clark (keyboards) and Jim Copley (drums).  David Bunce (guitar) joined on guitar for the second album.  The band was heavily influenced by other acts like Otis Redding, Sly & The Family Stone, Stevie Wonder and Donny Hathaway.

According to Jim Copley, Jeff Beck came to the studio where the band were rehearsing and heard them playing James Brown and some very funky stuff.  Beck was at the studio to play with David Bowie who was doing his Hammersmith Odeon farewell concert in 1973, but he liked it so much he ended up producing and playing on the album.

The debut album UPP was released in 1975.  Jeff Beck produced and also played guitar on this LP, although there was no mention of him playing in the liner notes.  The next album THIS WAY UPP  was released with Beck again producing and playing guitar solos on "Dance Your Troubles Away" and "Don't Want Nothing to Change”.
