    The player from Black Velvet maybe as that came out on deacon too. Not too sure if the years correlate + I dont think hip young black dudes made sessioners...before anyone says Harold mcNair was pretty old hip black dude by this time.

    Who is the arranger or composer btw

      This is a German production by Motive Music, and features some familiar names from the German library scene, like Heribert Thusek, Frank Syman and Bert Petri.

      I think the same organist played on some Conroy sessions with Gerhard Narholz, which leads me to think it [/I]might[I] be Mladen Franko.

      I&#39;m quite good on German stuff, so I may be able to come up with a definitive answer at some point. Give us some time and I&#39;ll see what I can do&#33;

        I&#39;ve got two different issues of this LP - I&#39;m pretty sure it&#39;s on two different labels and the the one which isn&#39;t on Deacon omits some tracks and has less nipple on the cover&#33; I&#39;ll dig them out (the records) when I can be arsed and let you know.

          I&#39;ve got another version on Polymax, with a couple of extra tracks, and there&#39;s also &#39;Blues and Bras&#39; (sic) on Boulevard, which couples some tracks from the Deacon LP with some recorded for Saga by the Brunning-Hall Sunflower Blues Band (featuring former Fleetwood Mac member Bob Brunning, and actually in its original Saga issue a quite rare and collectable LP - nobody seems to have spotted the Boulevard version&#33

          &#39;Blues and Bras&#39; is so called because there are indeed several ladies&#39; foundation garments on the cover (plus a lady wearing one&#33 - I think there&#39;s a picture somewhere on this very site, in fact. Boulevard&#39;s art department were feeling really inspired that day, obviously.

            The other one I have has a lady in a HUGE pair of Lionels which appear to have been made from some curtain material. Still can&#39;t remember the label but I&#39;m sure it&#39;s a cheapy - windmill, Saga, Boulevard or some such.

                    The &#39;Blues and Brass&#39; with the lady with the huge Dan Dares is the Polymax version (although it could also have appeared on Turnover - they basically seem to be the same label). The only other LP on Polymax I have is an anonymous one called &#39;Big Band&#39;, which features a few German library tracks by Frank Valdor, Frank Player, Carlos Diernhammer etc. - potentially one to watch?

                    I&#39;m very very interested in that Mike Hill LP - are there any composer and publisher credits for &#39;Groovin at Spot&#39; and &#39;Three Soul Mice&#39; (I may have got those titles wrong, that&#39;s what they look like from here). I might be able to identify the perpetrators.
