ZEBRA 90040 DUSTY WILSON - BETTER THAN YOU/SILVERY MOON
Reminiscent of his Orbit 45. BTY is a great plodding mid-tempo with some great harmony backing singers, echoing chopping guitar and a rather annoying flute too!
Label looks fantastic with it's zebra stripes on the top half! I've heard the session tape of it too, with half a dozen different takes, but the released version is probably the best.

Graham, that Tuff label with Ronnie Savoy is out of New York. Mostly famous for being the label of the Jaynette's mega-hit, Sally Go Round the Roses.
Who is the artist on Theoda 3206?
|By acooolcat (18.104.22.168 - 22.214.171.124) on Friday, August 09, 2002 - 02:03 pm:|
Joe - That's Clifford Binns.

Who owned those tapes and what happened to them?

Re Tuff Records - it started out as one of
Zell Sanders' labels in NY but I've a feeling
that it may have been sold to Abner Spector
who produced the Corsairs records on Tuff.
The Sanders discs seem to fizzle out around '64
then a new numerical series (400 onwards )
started up with most of the releases produced
by Spector. Chess in Chicago distributed some
of these discs and there are a few discs which
are of Chicago origin (Roscoe Robinson, E Rodney
Jones) - it's possible that in its final year
the label may have actually been based in Chicago.
Spector was still working with Chess in '68 as he
gets producer credits for Wayne Cochran's Chess

the rhythm king
A: party time (vocal)
B: party time (instrumental)
NEMO EXPRESS 100
the tempting five
A: i can't have you

Thanks Matt - the "rhythm king" is actually Sam Motley.
What year is the Nemo Express 45 from?
|By acooolcat (184.108.40.206 - 220.127.116.11) on Saturday, August 10, 2002 - 05:38 am:|
Thanks again Flynny - Do you know of any other 45s on Zebra?
|By David Meikle (18.104.22.168 - 22.214.171.124) on Saturday, August 10, 2002 - 01:17 pm:|
Here's the "Silvery Moon" side.
|By David Meikle (126.96.36.199 - 188.8.131.52) on Saturday, August 10, 2002 - 01:25 pm:|
Interesting that C Bell is on the writer credits.
ie earlier references to that name being Mike Hanks Mother or a cover name for Mike himself.
Again the great Joe Hunter crops up.

Theoda 3510 - Way Out Jerk
|By acooolcat (18.104.22.168 - 22.214.171.124) on Sunday, August 11, 2002 - 07:13 am:|
Thanks David - Looking at the publishing it seems that Mike was involved; Dushank = DUSty + HANKs?
|By David Meikle (126.96.36.199 - 188.8.131.52) on Sunday, August 11, 2002 - 12:40 pm:|
Graham, I think that is derived from the Producers Hank Wilson and Dusty Wilson.
Although perhaps Hank was Mike!
|By acooolcat (184.108.40.206 - 220.127.116.11) on Sunday, August 11, 2002 - 02:26 pm:|
Good point David - I guess the only way we'll ever find out is if we ask Dusty or Joe. Leave it with me.
|By Flynny (18.104.22.168 - 22.214.171.124) on Monday, August 12, 2002 - 06:37 pm:|
Also note that Zebra Publishing was behind his "Can''t do without you" on Bronse (gold label copies local Detroit presses, and black ones out of New York)!
Graham - I'll try and find/copy that session for you.
