  • Des Champ (w Barbra Moore)

    Sorry, that's 'ala Barbra Moore' not 'by'. Sounds interesting, but never heard anything about it before: any good?

    Des Champ is probably best know for his 'Penthouse presents The Bedside Bond' LP, but he was a record producer/arranger who did a lot of stuff for Page One records, and was involved with bands like The Vanity Fare and Chicory Tip. Also done a few library tracks.
    His version of 'It Takes A Thief' is excellent - rubbish sound quality, though.

    Incidentally, look out for 'Megowd - Something Tells Me' by Vanity Fare on the 'Hitchin' A Ride' LP, a Des Champ production with some fantastic Hammond, completely unlike anything VF ever did before or since, and sounding a bit out of place on the LP.

        Not personally, but I think I know someone with a complete set of IM LPs - I'll try to find out, but I can't promise anything.

          A bit of light googling suggests that 'To Catch A Thief' is a reasonably common 45, so it sounds like that'll be worth keeping an eye out for (rubbish sound quality notwithstanding)... As for the others, it's amazing what a wide spread of stuff these people got involved with when you start digging into their histories...
