The single "Something in the Air", released in 1969, was an international chart topping hit that seemed to sum up the mood of the times. Its inclusion in a poignant scene in the film "The Magic Christian" made the song even more legendary and heralded the arrival of Thunderclap Newman. The band was a trio fronted by John "Speedy" Keene, Jimmy McCulloch and Andy "Thunderclap" Newman , assembled by WHO guitarist PETE TOWNSHEND to serve as a vehicle for the songs of "Speedy" Keene. The bands sole album, produced by Townshend, was a wonderful slice of melodic whimsy, as English as anything by the Small Faces or The Kinks, but failed to the enjoy chart success of the bands debut single. Now remastered, this Esoteric Recordings edition adds six bonus tracks taken from the bands three singles and serves as a reminder of the excellence of Thunderclap Newman and their the album "Hollywood Dream".
