Additional information about this Freddie & The Dreamers vinyl art.
Freddie & The Dreamers – The Artist
Freddie and the Dreamers were a British band that had a number of hit records between May 1963 and November 1965. The band’s stage act was enlivened by the comic antics of the 5-foot-3-inch-tall (1.60m) Freddie Garrity, who would bounce around the stage with arms and legs flying. Although the band was grouped as a part of the Merseybeat sound phenomenon that the Beatles exploded around the world in the wake of Beatlemania, they came from Manchester. Prior to becoming a singer, Garrity had worked as a milkman in Manchester.
You Were Made For Me- The Song
You Were Made For Me is a song by the English band Freddie and the Dreamers, released as a single in November 1963.”You Were Made for Me” was written by Mitch Murray, who had co-written the band’s previous single “I’m Telling You Now” with Freddie Garrity. First released in the UK in November 1963 on EMI Columbia and then in the US in March 1964 on Capitol, it was released in the majority of territories with the B-side “Send a Letter to Me”, which was solely written by Garrity. “Send a Letter to Me” would be later released as a split single in the US in 1965.
The Bride of Frankenstein – The Shape
This record has been modelled into the ‘Bride of Frankenstein’ a character from the vintage film. Bride of Frankenstein is a 1935 American science fiction horror film, and the first sequel to Universal Pictures’ 1931 film Frankenstein. As with the first film, Bride of Frankenstein was directed by James Whale starring Boris Karloff as the Monster and Colin Clive as Dr. Frankenstein. The sequel features Elsa Lanchester in the dual role of Mary Shelley and the titular character at the end of the film. Colin Clive reprises his role as Henry Frankenstein, and Ernest Thesiger plays the role of Doctor Septimus Pretorius. Oliver Peters Heggie plays the role of the old blind hermit. Taking place immediately after the events of the earlier film, it is rooted in a subplot of the original Mary Shelley novel, Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus (1818). Its plot follows a chastened Henry Frankenstein as he attempts to abandon his plans to create life, only to be tempted and finally blackmailed by his old mentor Dr. Pretorius, along with threats from the Monster, into constructing a mate for the Monster.
