Terry Dene ‎– London Rock (LP 1957-1959)

 

Terry Dene ‎– London Rock (LP Jan Records ‎– JAN 33-8024, 1985), 1957-1959.
Género: Rock and Roll.
Terry Dene is a British rock singer who can be perfectly matched to Cliff Richard, Tommy Steele, Marty Wilde or Billy Fury. Terence Williams (his real name) has always been a fighter, and has taken Elvis Presley as his model.
In 1957, Terry recorded his first songs for Decca, including “A White Sport Coat,” which reached the Top 20, followed by Star Movin ‘from his second single. In 1958, he achieved a new success with Stairway of Love and became the star of the movie “The Golden Disc”, where he sings “The Golden Age”, C’min and Be Loved, Charm and Candy Floss. At that time, Terry was at the top of his career. He married Edna Savage (a pop singer), but also had to fulfill his military service. His great success and the hefty sums of money that Terry had made that year had created a nervous breakdown. In 1959, he returned to the army, and during that time, Dene again fell into depression. In 1961, he divorced his wife.
In the compilation / LP that we present here are some of the successes of Terry recorded in Decca between 1957 and 1959, of which we point out Lucky Lucky Bobby, Baby She’s Gone or Pretty Little Pearly, by the projection that the radios gave to them at the time.
Terence Dene (born Terence Williams, 20 December 1938) former British singer of pop and rock music, was very popular in the late 50’s in the UK. He had three hits in the Top 20, between June 1957 and May 1958.
By that time, he was considered the British Elvis and recognized as one of the best voices of the pre-Beatles rock and roll era in the UK. His first single, “A White Sport Coat,” sold over 300,000 copies in the first seven weeks along with “Stairway of Love”, which remained on the chart for eight weeks, and his own version of “Start Movin” “reached # 14, having managed to reach the UK Top 20 singles charts twice in the same year, inscribing his name in the Guinness Book of Records. Dene was one of the first rock singers to appear on BBC Television’s first pop show, Six-Five Special, and also appeared in The Golden Disc.

The Beatstalkers ‎– Scotland’s No.1 Beat Group (1965/1969)

 

 
The Beatstalkers ‎– Scotland’s No.1 Beat Group (1965/1969).
Género: Rock, Pop, Beat, Rhythm ‘n’ Blues, Soul, Mod.
The Beatstalkers was a Beat group formed in 1962 in Glasgow / Scotland. The Beatstalkers were sometimes called “The Scottish Beatles” and, like other Scottish beat groups such as The Poets, The Athenians or The Pathfinders, were specializing in cover versions of American soul and R & in activity between 1962 and 1969.
In 1962, Alan Mair and Eddie Campbell formed the band, whose composition included Davie Lennox as lead singer, Eddie Campbell on guitar, Alan Mair on bass and ‘Tudge’ Williamson on drums (later replaced by Jeff Allen). Later, Ronnie Smith joined the group playing rhythm guitar. Under the direction of Joe Gaffney, the band became the most important group in Scotland at that time.
In 1964, the Beatstalkers became a summit attraction, specializing in versions of obscure soul and R ‘n’ B.
The Beatstalkers moved to London in 1967, where they remained as band resident in the famous Marquee Club.
The group caught the eye of Decca Records in London but failed to bridge the success it had achieved in Scotland for success in England and thus had neither artistic nor commercial success. So they decided to split up in 1969 after their van was stolen with all their equipment inside.
Alan Mair started playing with The Only Ones and drummer Jeff Allen played with East of Eden. The Beatstalkers played a concert again on December 23, 2005 in Glasgow.
