    Deke Arlon & The Offbeats - I Must Go And Tell Her - acetate and single mix by Joe Meek RGM

    6:33

    Acetate and single from the collection of the late Bobby Ross, who was bass player with the Offbeats. I Must Go And Tell Her b/w I Need You was considered a Joe Meek production many years ago but later dismissed. Before Bobby died he told me that they were allowed to record this single at another studio with Joe Meek's permission, on the condition that he still got to mix the finished product. At the time I didn't believe, but since going through Bobby's collection which included this acetate, it is clear that the story is true, and there is a lot of dynamic difference from the acetate to the released 45. Therefore the story is true, Joe effectively produced this 45!

    Mike Leroy – “With A Little Love 1970

    2:31

    Written by Tony Romeo. Arranged by Johnny Arthey and produced by Deke Arlon.

    One of the many fabulous titles written by Tony Romeo in the late 60s and 70s. As sung by Debbie Reynolds, “With A Little Love (Just A Little Love)” was the theme from her TV show which ran on NBC in 1969-70. The show also aired in the UK generating interest in Debbie’s theme, which Pye International released as a 45.

    The cult UK TV show, “Monty Python's Flying Circus” spoofed Debbie’s TV show in a sketch entitled The Attila the Hun Show. Mike Leroy’s version was used to support that sketch.

    On disc, Mike Leroy began recording for EMI in 1964. One of his earliest releases was a Bacharach-David song, “I Forgot What It Was Like”, which had been issued in the US by Ray Peterson. In 1965, he recorded the title song to the film, “A High Wind In Jamaica” starring James Coburn and Anthony Quinn. Earlier, Mike had recorded as Roy Lee on Decca; issuing “Two Initials (In A Heart)”, a cover of a US song by Ritchie Adams.

    Other songs written by Toney Romeo: Lou Christie’s “I’m Gonna Make You Mine”, The Cowsills’ “Indian Lake” and the Partridge Family’s “I Think I Love You”.

    This is a video made by one of my fans using my song The Watch Man from The Watch Man CD. She made it as a tribute to her Grandfather, and it just gets me every time... so much so that it would work as the song's official video. Thank You Natalie Ferry, and thank you Dmytro Jaremenko, (1917- 2004) for leading the kind of life that would inspire his grandaughter so.

    My kind of people - Nobody knows why the butterfly died

    2:54

    This track recorded in 1970 is a fabulous slice of late 60s pop psych from the pen of Ivy Leaguer Perry Ford (real name Bryan Pugh). There's a noticeable nod in the direction of Procol Harum, but this is altogether less doom-laden. It's co-produced by Ford and the former beat group leader Deke Arlon, and arranged by the Irish organist Fiachra Trench, who I'm guessing plays keyboards here.

    Geoff Goddard - To Be A Farmers Boy

    1:46

    Geoff's take on an old folk song, performed on his 'modified' piano at Joe Meek's studio in Holloway.
    The Farmer's Boy
    The sun had sunk behind yon hill
    Across yon dreary moor,
    When wet and cold there came a boy
    Up to a farmer's door.
    'Can you tell me,' said he,'if any there be
    Who will give me employ
    For to plow and to sow and to reap and to mow
    And to be a farmer's boy, boy,
    And to be a farmer's boy?

    (Repeat these last three lines at the end of each stan

    'My father's dead aud my mother left,
    And with three children small;
    And what is worse for my mother still,
    I'm the oldest of them all.
    But as little as I am I will do what I can
    All for to seek employ.' .

    'Oh, yes,' cried the wife,'let us try the lad;
    Let him no further seek !'
    'Oh, yes,' the daughter she replied,
    While a tear ran down her cheek,
    'It is hard for those who seek for work
    And wander for employ.'

    The boy he stayed till he grew a man
    And the good old farmer died.
    He left the lad with all he had
    And his daughter for his bride.
    But the lad that now a farmer is,
    He oft times smiles with joy
    When he thinks of the day that he came this way
    All for to seek employ,
    For to plow and to sow and to reap and to mow
    And to be a farmer's boy, boy,
    And to be a farmer's boy.

    From Ballads and Songs, Belden
    Collected from Josephine Norville 1907
