I think I've actually found one that's been missed :shock: I can only assume Paul has been sleeping on the job :lol:

You should have heard of this, Neil, as it got to number 6 in the pop parade.

"Not to put too fine a point on it" yes I recall that one but the points have gone to Mick!

I do believe TP& the H. have slipped through the net before, a valid enough T I would think.


They were the support act for Nils Lofgren at Newcastle City Hall
Time for American Girl to take its place in the calendar. Appropriately given the prelude in Black and White :-D

Tommy Steele and the Steelmen...their only number one hit, Singing the Blues Sounds like hes doing a very bad elvis impression.

There is a bit of an academic anaylsis here which marks this record out, and Steele's singing style as a seminal moment in the development of British Rock and Roll.
"No, the one thing that makes this record rock is Steele himself:

"We-hell.. a-never felt…m’re like singin’ the blues… cos I never thought Ivrlose… yr love… dear…"

...that’s really how he sings: like the last old man crawling out the pub. He’s slurring. He goes quiet, then loud, then quick, then slow. He sounds snotty, and bratty. He starts off sounding quite posh and proper but ends the lines dripping in insincerity. He sounds like he’s taking the p**s. You can picture him sneering and gyrating. It’s a world away from previous British male chart-toppers like David Whitfield, even Dickie Valentine. I don’t think it’s too much of a leap to say he sounds like a cross between David Bowie and Johnny Rotten.
