During the 1960s, Scottish-born actor David McCallum was an instantly recognizable face across the world, thanks to his star turn as secret agent Illya Kuryakin on the spy series The Man From U.N.C.L.E. But with the release of his second album, Music…A Bit More of Me,
in 1966, he became recognizable for another reason: his signature sound. Working closely with famed producer David Axelrod and arranger H.B. Barnum, McCallum, who comes from a family of musicians, delivers lush, distinctly personal interpretations of classic songs by, among others, artists such as The Beatles (“Michelle”), Petula Clark (“Call Me”) and Axelrod himself, who contributes the original song “The Edge,” later made famous when sampled by Dr. Dre for
his monster hit “The Next Episode” in 1999.
Get On Down is proud to present this timeless piece in a beautifully restored edition, with audio remastered from the original analog tapes, packaged in a paste-on mini-LP slip case based on the original album artwork, with dust sleeve and obi strip in a clear plastic poly bag. The album also features a reproduction of the full-color promotional photo contact sheet which was included with its original pressing.
