Welcome to Ernest Ranglin’s UK Site


All about Ernest...


With a musical career that has spanned no less than 7 decades so far, and which shows no signs of slowing down, Ernest Ranglin is undoubtedly one of the world’s most remarkable musicians!

Born in 1932 and now in his 80’s, Ranglin is still touring the world, with recent appearances in the US, Japan, Europe and the UK.

I created this website to provide information about Ernest Ranglin that is not so easy to find elsewhere, developing the website, with Ernest’s co-operation, to include a comprehensive, growing, discography; extracts from sleeve notes with track listings; interesting interviews and videos; and information about Ernest’s guitars, musical equipment, guitar playing techniques and so forth.

In 2009, Ernest Ranglin asked me to be his personal representative in the UK, initially to look after his affairs at PPL. Subsequently, I negotiated a licensing agreement with Repertoire Records for the re-issue of his classic 1960’s recordings with the Graham Bond Organisation - see http://www.repertoirerecords.com/artists/graham-bond-organisation-the/wade-in-the-water-classics-origins-oddities/

Enquiries from other bona-fide record labels about re-issues of old recordings or to make new recordings are welcomed.
