    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”.

    The Watch Man - Arlon Bennett

    4:52

    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 - Somebodys coming

    3:02

    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.
