  • Chico Rey and His Jet Band

    I love his version of Stilletto which is on the CD version of "Sound Specturm" and some other CD compilations.

    Has this ever come out on Vinyl in any form. Is there an original? Has the artist been renamed? Is there a vinyl comp with it on (it is missing from Sound Spectrum along with Mach 1 my two fav tracks from the LP!)

        Stiletto was a Pye single originally - I believe it's a cover of the theme from the film.

        As for who Chico Rey is - no idea, but it sounds a bit like Ray Davies to me. I think the drummer is Barry Morgan, however much use that is!

          I've got this 45 on Pye, yes it's a cover of the Sid Ramin film theme which also got a UK 45 release, but it's harder. I'll try to attach a scan but when I scan files, they're too big to post up, does anyone know how to reduce them?

            have you got Photoshop, Mik? If so, use the 'save for web' option in the file menu. That's the badger.
            We know when a mate buys it for you too.

              What's on the b-side, Mik? Is it another cover version, or an original composition? Might give some clues as to who Mr Rey really is!
