The Inmates - Bill Hurley (vocals), Peter Gunn (b. Peter Staines; guitar), Tony Oliver (guitar), Ben Donnelly (bass) and Jim Russell (drums) - emerged in the late 70s as a UK R&B group in the style of Dr. Feelgood. Their adaptation of â€˜Dirty Waterâ€™, a garage-band classic originally recorded by the Standells, led to the Inmatesâ€™ debut album. In common with several similarly styled groups, the quintet was unable to transfer their live excitement onto record, and despite other promising collections, the band was restricted to a narrow, pub rock-influenced ghetto. Singer Bill Hurley recorded the solo Double Agent in 1985, but its gritty mixture of soul and R&B classics fared no better than those of the parent group. Meet The Beatles, Live In Paris is a set of Beatles songs performed in a hard R&B and Chicago blues vein.Portions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
