    Sounds good, Matt. I'm all up for some complexities. I'm sure we shall complete it soon.

    Blight, got a spare of this (ie the LP with 'Dancing In the Moonlight) if you want it. Shall I add it to our 'never to be completed' complex trade ?

    One of the Young Generation singers/dancers, Marie Beresford-Huey lives quite near me. Sadly, ain't got the time to conduct an interview for the vulture site, but if anyone's seriously interested in doing a feature with her let me know. She's also worked with Tom Jones, Tommy Steele and Bruce Forsyth, on the West end stage.

    I've got their 'Happy Together' LP which features a highly enjoyable cover of Labi Siffre's 'It Must Be Love' that I bunged on my easy comp. The LP with 'Dancing In The Moonlight' regularly goes for £10-15 on the bay. I still haven't found a charidee shoppe copy yet though. But I will.

    The Minelli and the Young Generation versions are remarkably similar - same tempo and extreme bongo action - if pushed I'd say Liza's version has the edge due to the little funky flute segment.
    As for the King Harvest version (I think it is the original as it would appear to have been written by two of the band - good LP by the way, on Perception I think) it's very mellow - much slower and comprises mainly of electric piano, bass, percussion and voice.

    talking of Liza Minelli, check out her 'Sterile Cuckoo' OST... to be had for pence in the UK, got a couple of tasty psychy/rocky/funky instros on it (by Fred 'Up the down staircase' Karlin, who also did some very funky and unissued music for the short-lived Kiss movie&#33

    Sie Vulture -cheers re. the avatar, or the more amusing "what you mean it isn't a jazz funk compilation?"

    I've never much noticed Liza Minelli lps knocking round but will keep my eyes peeled for more "Dancing In The moonlight", its possible I just didn't pay much attention to them. Are they common over in the UK?

The music had its moments (a good 'Spinning Wheel', 'Tap Turns On The Water' etc) but the vocals were excriuciating stage school pants. Not to be confused with anything I guess...
    Oh yes, there was a TV series connected with this bunch, called '.........and the 2Gs' (can't remember what the first word was).
    The Second Generation were devised as a sort of 'S Club Juniors' type spin off from the Young Generation, or something like that - there was an official connection, anyway.
    But I bet they never boasted stars of the magnitude of Lesley Judd, Nigel Lythgoe and Michael Barrymore's ex-missus in their line up

    I've been buying Young Generation LPs for a good few years now - I wouldn't pay a tenner for any of 'em though. (I wouldn't pay a tenner for most things, to be honest, being a bit of a cheapskate an' all)

    I heard their 'Dancing in the Moonlight' long before Toploader's, fortunately, otherwise it would have spoiled the song for me forever - I love the intro with the trombone stabs and furious drumming from Alf Bigden, it's just fantastic.

    I've probably got the original LP somewhere, I'll have a look later.

    I remember their 1969 LP on BBC records had a couple of nice moments on it, and I like 'Pretty' on the RCA 'Best Of'. There's also a good scat track, called 'Ba Ba Da Ba Da' (or summat like that), written by Alyn Ainsworth. Barbara Moore they ain't, but it's an amusing little number nonetheless.

    i need to go and see all my relatives up there some time, so will have to get some Darlo tips from you guys.

    the King Harvest version is very nice, although the Toploader version is a pretty accurate cover (just not as good). more electric piano on the original if i remember
