Here some from the Book

Personnel incl:
ANDY 'CED CURTIS gtr, vcls A
STEVE GOULD vcls, gtr A

1 Cuddly Toy/Follow Me (Spark SRL 1003) 1969
2 I'm Alone Today/Sunshine Of Your Love (Spark SRL 1027) 1970

NB: There was also a US-only 45: The Wall/Willow Tree (American Music Makers 0021) 1969.

An obscure band whose version of Cream's Sunshine Of Your Love is very competent. Follow Me and I'm Alone Today are also both strong songs with considerable commercial potential. In particular, I'm Alone Today featured some good guitar and piano interplay but the la la la's are a bit of a turnoff.

Their second UK 45 was recorded in London. Chris Randall recalls:- "The recording of I'm Alone Today and Sunshine Of Your Love was made in the small basement studio below "Southern Music" in Little Newport Street, Soho. The tape machine was an old valve (tube) Ampex half-inch 4-track with a homebrew mixer. The recording engineer was Paul Holland and the producer was Barry Kingston. Paul used to get very agitated if anyone stood in front of the huge Altec Lansing monitors in the control room as it spoiled the sound! We didn't do all that many live gigs but spent our time writing stuff, being silly and worrying our parents almost to death!"

Steve Gould and Andy Curtis later played in Rare Bird.

Compilation coverage has included:- Follow Me and I'm Alone Today on Circus Days, Vol. 2 (LP); Follow Me on Circus Days Vol. 1 & 2 (CD); I'm Alone Today on Circus Days Vol. 3 (CD); The Wall on Rubble Vol. 10 (CD), Rubble Vol. 18 (LP), The Best Of Rubble Collection, Vol. 3 (CD) and We Can Fly (CD); Willow Tree on Electric Sugar Cube Flashbacks, Vol. 4 (LP).
