    For me - Rolling Tones is a VERY average piece - save yer money and buy something with a little 'longevity' - knoworriman?

    Hello Mr Iueke,

    I found this a while back and, like you, what to know more about the group.

    I wonder if the Cool Creations are the same group as the Rolling Tones? I have no basis for this apart from they're the only groups I know from St Maarteens who where cutting soul influenced LPs around the same time.

    The Rolling Tones LP goes for big bucks but I prefer the Cool Creations because of the modern soul track on Side A. If fact, I have no idea why the Rolling Tones goes for big bucks because it ain't good imho.

    Let me know if you find out more.

    Cheers.

    I've got the 7" by the Cats on Baf, great tune, about £10 for the 45!!
    I'm aware of, but not familiar with, that one. Do you happen to know whether the one on the LP I got is the same recording (the whole thing is just credited to King Reggie's Allstars)? It's got some great fluting on it.

    It seems Oryx Recordings are still going, though if it's the same company they seem to concentrate on Baroque music these days. A lot of their stuff seems to come from Austria, for what it's worth, but aside from that I know naff all, I'm afraid!

    Matt - yeah, I saw the Labels of Love thing after I posted...but it says 'Melanie' not 'Beverley'...

    Lord T - I guessed it might be the same thing as the Memphis Brown Beat Band album, I haven't got it but it's one earlier in the sequence and seems to have the same tracks judging by what it says on the back of Sax With A Beat. It also says 'top quality super-stereo recordings by Oryx Recording Limited' - was this a label/publisher or a recording studio or what? What's the deal with the 'Music For Your Home' label? See them all over the place but no nothing about them...

    The JJ Sashko is actually an instrumental verson of the Memphis Brown Beatband LP on the same label - the same backing tracks are used, but with 'Harold Berman' playing the sax on top of them. My suspicions are the original recordings originate from somewhere in Europe, possibly Italy.

    Never seen the Tony Lee - as Matt says, it seems to be hard to find. Sadly, Tony died earlier this year - he was a well-respected jazz pianist for about forty years, and backed loads of well known singers.

    Nice one, one of the rarer Contours (only found 2 of 'em ever) and 'Beverley' is a nice track, if slightly off-key early on.

    It's listed on the 'Labels Of Love' pages on the site under 'Contour' for more info.

    Some late additions:

    Antonio Carlos Jobim: Stone Flower. I love this. Dead cool cover too.

    Letta Mbulu: Sound of A Rainbow LP

    V/A: Listen Here LP (Transatlantic Sampler). Feat. the very cool and funky "Travelling Song" by Pentangle (as played by Matt and some other fella at the Brillo) Spare if anyone's interested.

    Bruce Forsyth "The Bruce Forsyth Album". Feat the Harry Roche orch and all your fave UK session men. Brucie's version of "Love's Theme" is a giggle and even rocks a bit courtesy of Mr Bennett an the drums, which is bonus (a Brucie bonus).

    From the charity shop just now:

    JALN Band "Street Dance"/ "Everybody's getting some" 7". A real surprise this as I usually find them a bit rubbish. "Street Dance" is a tough version of the Fatback Band. "Everybody's.." is a banging instrumental with drum breaks galore. From '75, so a year or so before their run of minor hits.

    Kenny Lynch "Half the Days Gone" 12" (Spare. Funky Tee are you still after this? I'll pm you).

    Stevie Wonder "Do I do" 12" (another spare)

    Mindbenders Back In Time Just Funky Jazz II LP. No idea what this is.... sort of deep house with hip hop beats. Listening to it now. Rather good.

    Plus a few soul 7s and 12s for the collection and a pile of African LPs that I haven't listened to yet.
