Stranger Cole, Patsy and The Fugitives - Down The Train Line / Sing And Pray - Doctor Bird DB-1087

Stranger Cole, Patsy and The Fugitives

Down The Train Line / Sing And Pray

Doctor Bird : DB-1087 (45s)

Jamaica's premier duo Stranger Cole and Millicent Todd, Patsy & Wilburn were the Mickey and Sylvia of Jamaica, this time guided by Sonia Pottinger, backed up by her Orange Street, session band the Fugitives. A formidable gathering of talent create one of Doctor Bird's most impressive Gay Feet productions.

Plectrum dance pulses blend with superior rhythmic percussion, as drum and Bongos meld into one force. The contrast between Strangers rich voice and Patsy's piercing shrill support works brilliantly against the pulsating backdrop. Strong Rock Steady dance..

A change of style on the flipside as Stranger goes it alone, supported by another in-house Gay Feet team, Gladstone Anderson's Seraphines help deliver a slow vocal group drag, decorated by a sulking saxophone for an deeply atmospheric lamen t. the sax solo finale is another high point in Sonia Pottinger's consistently inventive directional skills.

Two great sides on its elusive 1967 UK press.

Tico and the Triumphs - Motorcycle / I Don't Believe Them - Amy 835 DJ

Tico and the Triumphs

Motorcycle / I Don't Believe Them

Amy : 835 DJ (45s)

a flawless copy of this early Paul Simon creation, a fine clean promo copy of this blue-eyed Doo-Wop rocker born of Queens, New York.

Both sides written by Paul Simon under his pseudonym Jerry Landis for his group Tico and The Triumphs, original members included Mickey Borack, Paul Simon (under his stage name Jerry Landis), Marty Cooper, Howie Beck.

Their greatest success came with the release of "Motorcycle" which peaked at lowly #99 on the US Billboard Singles chart on January 6, 1962.

The top side "Motorcycle" just sneaking into the billboard charts, the stock copy is elusive, but as the PROMO copy is decidedly dog-rare. An archetypical blue-eyed New York doo-wop rocker, snarling lead vocal peppered with novelty "beat-box" sound effects and an insane saxophone partition, wild drumming and rapid "Ba Ba's" fill the air. It works so well.

The flipside "I Don't Believe Them" is an altogether more cultured affair, displaying the accomplished harmony, that had featured in his partnership with Art Garfunkel when the school-friends duetted through the late 50's as "Tom and Jerry"; then just 3 years after Tico & The Triumphs venture and now fellow university students, the embryonic beginnings of one of the most important rock partnerships of the last century started to develop.

Here is Paul Simon at his most vibrant in 1961/62, presented here as a near perfect PROMO 45.

A disc saturated in Rock history...

Illusions - Her Own Way /  Impossibility - Cha Cha C-744

Illusions

Her Own Way / Impossibility

Cha Cha : C-744 (45s)

Rare 1966 Chicago garage, a 5 man gathering from Notre Dame University in Indiana.

The first of two releases this obscure but talented band released with Cha Cha Records; all four sides were in-house compositions by band members vocalist Rick Medich & guitarist Ted Poulos, along with Geoff Gillette - keyboard, guitar & vocals, Ray Wheatley - bass and vocals, with only drummer Franklin Krakowski not participating in the 4 man vocal harmony. Which you can appreciate no matter which side you drop the arm on.

For the purposes of this review, we switch the sides from the original a-side "Impossibility" influenced by their admiration for British invasion. A slick "Brit" sounding mid-tempo mirroring a patchwork of British bands of the 60's, but adding a lengthy harmonica instrumental break, making it stand out from the crowd.

We lead with the much meatier less commercial "Her Own Way" a sulking Rock, Psyche, folk amalgamation; a typical self-pitying young man rejection song, featuring accomplished jangling guitar landscape, decorated with melancholy but seamless harmonies.

Within in a year of making their only two 45's for Cha Cha , in 1967 they changed their name to The Shaggs recording a highly-sought after album "Wink" for MMC of Chicago. Regarded as an ultra rare garage Garage Grail

Hard to find in collectable condition, this 45 is very clean in every way.
