  • Run Run You Little Fool-Bronzettes-'64-Parkway 929.

    The Bronzettes were a Philadelphia group , that were produced by Chubby Checker after his hitmaking days were over. Stress on HITMAKING, not creative. Chubby (and the whole Cameo-Parkway complex) continued to make great, danceable records all through the 1960s, despite the fact that the British Invasion pretty much shut the door on Chubby's chart career after 1964. Chubby saw it coming, and decided that if those moptops were gonna keep him from having big hits, he'd better give himself some leeway for a career on the other side of the studio glass. So he wrote and produced this record for a local girl group (whom nobody seems to know anything about - not even the super-geeks at Spectropop) and released it in the fall of 1964 and the Bronzettes were never heard from again, 1964 - Run, Run...

Formed in the fall of 1965, the original Temptones consisted of Paul Fogel, Brian Utain, Daryl Hohl (later changed to Hall), Ken Halpern and Barry Glazer. The group met whilst attending Temple University in Philadelphia and began singing together on street corners doing mostly soul covers and R&B. Except for Daryl who commuted from the rural Pottstown area, the rest of the group came from the predominantly Jewish sections of Philadelphia - Paul and Brian from Mt.

Just check out the cover art with that hallucinatory figure armed with a guitar, the psychedelic font used for the album title is a trip with it's garish pink, off-set by the sky blue song-titles on a jet black background. Even if you had never heard of The Deep in '66, the sleeve alone would have been enough persuasion for the acid munching youth to pick it from the rack to get some of that Deep action. 'Color Dreams' is an obvious highlight from this long-player but I can't help but feel that it's a Kim Fowley 'Trip' rip-off. But I don't care about that. Rusty's de...

The Temptones are an obscure footnote to the beginnings of Hall and Oates. Their recordings have been unavailable for nearly 30 years. Formed in the fall of 1965, the original Temptones consisted of Paul Fogel, Brian Utain, Daryl Hohl (later changed to Hall), Ken Halpern and Barry Glazer. The group met whilst attending Temple University in Philadelphia and began singing together on street corners doing mostly soul covers and R&B. Except for Daryl who commuted from the rural Pottstown area, the rest of the group came from the predominantly Jewish sections of Philadelphia - Paul and Brian from Mt. Airy and Ken and Barry from Overbrook / Wynnefield. Ken and Barry both attended Overbrook High School which was home to many Philadelphia groups like The Dovells, the LY-Decs, Danny and the Juniors, Rick and the Masters, and countless other Cameo-Parkway recording artists. The group harmony sound was still popular in Philadelphia throughout the '60s and groups like the Temptones didn't care much for the British Invasion because they liked soul and Motown music. The group performed mostly on weekends when they weren't studying. They played with different backing groups which consisted of a three piece guitar/bass/drums formation. In late 1965 or early 1966 Paul Fogel left the group to join the U.S. Air Force. In the spring of 1966 The Temptones made their first recording at the small Impact Sound Studio in Northeast Philadelphia which was in the basement of a shoe store run by a Tony Schmidt. They recorded 'Goodbye' an Original written by Barry Glazer. A few copies were made to help the group to obtain personal appearances. This led to them securing a gig at the 'Freedom Show' held at the Convention Hall in Philadelphia, which was an all soul extravaganza with forty other soul groups. When the Temptones came out to perform, the mostly black audience greeted them with loud boos and heckling but when they began to sing their version of 'Old Man River' the crowd went crazy. This kind of reaction was typical. The black kids would boo at the very beginning because they didn't believe that a white group could be that good. But the Temptones were. The crowd would scream and shout by the time they finished. Their big break came when they won the second place at the Uptown Theatre talent show sponsored by James Brown (The Ambassadors were first). This led local DJ Jimmy Bishop signing both bands to a recording contract with his Arctic label. They were actually trying to get an the Motown label, but when Motown declined, they went with Arctic. In late '66 they recorded their first single at the Virtue Studios on North Broad Street which was directly across from the Temple University. 'Girl I Love You' received significant airplay in Philadelphia and Baltimore, making #17 on the WDAS Soul chart. Since Arctic didn't press many copies, the records weren't readily available. The record helped them to get an a few local Philadelphia T.V. shows, like the Hylit and the Jerry Blaret shows.

These sequences, which often focus on a group of revolutionary youth in Paris, provide a chance for Godard to inject political commentary and meta-fictional musings on the nature of cinema. These more cerebral scenes serve as counterpoint to the direct presentation of the creative process seen in the Stones' studio sessions, and provide oblique commentary on the political meanings of popular music.

However, Slay and Crewe were actually already familiar with the group, as "Silhouettes" was their third single with them.[2] The song received a break when popular local disc jockey Hy Lit fell asleep with a stack of newly released records on his record player. "Silhouettes" happened to be the last to play, and so it repeated until he woke up. He began to play the song on his show.[1] It became popular enough that Cameo-Parkway picked it up for national distribution, and it eventually reached number 3 on Billboard Top 100, while also hitting the top five on both the sales and airplay charts.

Left to right;Jeff Leonard,Johnny Smith,Joey Hall,Jimmy Meagher and Fred Gerace. The next recording on Joy records_Bongo Gully/It Was Like Heaven.was released in late 1962 in the same days of Dovell's_Hully Gully Baby.and with little promotion the song failed in the charts.the group broke with their managers and Joy Records and call to the doors of Cameo-Parkway Records where they recorded in 1964 as Joey & The Flips the sides_Fool Fool Fool/The Beachcomber. It was now 1965 doo wop groups were history and Joey & The Flips gigged as studio band for TV for over two years but when Jeff Leonards is recluted for the Vietnam war the group broke up. In 1976 Monogram Records released one single with two 1962 unreleased sides of the group_The Mistery Of The Night/Hot Rod.

THE DEEP - 'Color Dreams' (Cameo-Parkway P 7051) November 1966 I'm still on my Rusty Evans trip at the moment and have been diggin' this 1966 album by The Deep who were a studio based group comprising Rusty and Mark Barkan. Just check out the cover art with that hallucinatory figure armed with a guitar, the psychedelic font used for the album title is a trip with it's garish pink, off-set by the sky blue song-titles on a jet black background. Even if you had never heard of The Deep in '66, the sleeve alone would have been enough persuasion for the acid munching youth to pick it from the rack to get some of that Deep action. 'Color Dreams' is an obvious highlight from this long-player but I can't help but feel that it's a Kim Fowley 'Trip' rip-off. But I don't care about that. Rusty's deep gruff vocals again hit the mark just like they did on the Ry Cooper 45 (reviewed last time out). This is psychedelic rapping over fuzz guitars.... "Blue black purple mac Orange yellow funny fellow White brown pink town Orange red pink bed We'll pretend yellow man Jesus saves planet rays Green red Commie dead Blue green yellow scream Spanish fly golden eye Pearly white outta sight..." http://expo67-cavestones.blogspot.co.uk/2012/03/deep-color-dreams.html
