    Any help gratefully received

    More than a whiff of Jimmy McGriff He cut a few bits for Radio caroline. Hammond & Sonovox on this one. Don't think it's on an lp'. Be good to be told otherwise.
    Apparently, this could be the influence

      Sounds more European to me, kind of George Fame-ish. I know nothing.

          Spot on TB have to admit I was leaning to more a Brit artist glad to be proved wrong. Great piece of music by the way.

            Just reading some of the comments on Daddy Ya Yas' clip. Never heard of PAMS before, sounds interesting. Did they do physical releases?
            Would the tune have popped up on one of those pirate radio lps? I've never heard one myself. Just thinking of an avenue where it might have made it to vinyl.

              Thanks DYY. My mate had already found the version you posted. It was the artist he was after. Seems to be a lot of debate as to who it might be. I know Jimmy McGriff was mentioned but I didn't think this was conclusive?

                I'm sure I heard a clip on one of those Pirate Radio blogs of tunes by JM & Madeline Bell. I'll see if I can remember where it was. It was the sound that made me think of JM.

                This is the site Mark,

                Scroll down until you see a picture of Jimmy McGriff, and the link is below. Nice hat! Although the tune you were after isn't actually on the recordings, sounds like peas from the same pod to me. Maybe someone who knows a bit more about pirate radio can clear this one up.

                  It almost certainly was on one of those pirate radio comps - I've got a feeling it may also be on the 7" that was released to commemorate the closure of Radio London in 1967, though I'm not 100% on that.

                  To my knowledge (and I stand to be corrected on this) the only physical releases PAMS did were reel-to-reel tapes that were samplers for their current jingle packages (which certain stations used to use by snipping out the other station names, thus getting free jingles - naughty!)

                  Sonowaltz wasn't recorded at the same sessions as the Bell/McGriff Caroline jinges, it dates from a few years earlier. Could be McGriff playing on it though.
