Tempo EP 10470Posted: May 29, 2008
All three of these records probably had full color sleeves because most of the “Tip” and “Tempo” records that I have do. Some teenager must have thrown them away some 40 years ago. I paid 50 cents for each of them at the flea market that is happening every Saturday across the street. “Honey Bee” was originally recorded by Drafi Deutscher and his Magics, “Somebody Help Me” by the Spencer Davis Group, “Sha La La Lee” by the Small Faces and “The Sun Ain`t Gonna Shine Any More” by the Walker Brothers. Check out those great fake Beat band names! Who wouldn`t want to be called Johnny Smash.
