Complete your Downliners Sect collection. Well - we just checked and The Beatles album in there is worth £600 - so well done!". Yup - in that box was The Beatles Hottest Hits on Danish Parlophone with the withdrawn 'eskimo' sleeve. He'd done nothing with those records - just stashed 'em upstairs. There was no internet in those days - but by chance the work experience kiddy had spotted it in a back issue of Record Collector "The Beatles Rarest Sleeve". We sold it to a dealer for £450. That kind of thing happened a lot in those days.
Redirected from The Downliners Sect). The Downliners Sect are an English R&B and blues-based rock band, formed the 1960s beat boom era. Stylistically, they were similar to blues-based bands, such as The Yardbirds, The Pretty Things and the Rolling Stones, playing basic R&B on their first album The Sect. Critic Richie Unterberger wrote: "The Sect didn't as much interpret the sound of Chess Records as attack it, with a finesse that made the Pretty Things seem positively suave in comparison.
Tempo unknown for Outside by Downliners Sect. The Rock Sect's In. 1966. Top Songs Downliners Sect. Hey Hey Hey Hey. Ain't Got You.
A classic album which shows Downliners Sect at their best. 14 raunchy rhytm’n’ blues and rock songs, most of it taken from outside sources but also some own compositions like "Sect Appeal" and "Be A Sect Maniac". More than 30 years after its release, the album still sparks with energy and affection for the music. At the same time Downliners Sect also recorded the song that gave them a big hit in Sweden, "Little Egypt". Downliners Sect was now reduced to a four-piece when harmonica player Pip Harvey left the band during some really weird circumstances. The band was on its way to a gig and they were going to pick up Pip Harvey outside his home. They arrived and waited but no sign of their harmonica player until somebody told them that he had left because the police were after him! That was the last the band members heard from Pip Harvey until some of them ran into him-20 years later!
