70's Ashton, Gardner & Dyke - The Resurrection Shuffle

A few albums and releases but only one hit.

TOTP
 
Nice one! Links if you want them:

1967 Judy in Disguise (With Glasses) - John Fred & His Playboy Band

1967 Excerpt from a Teenage Opera - Keith West

1967 I Was Kaiser Bill's Batman - Whistling Jack Smith

1968 Little Arrows - Leapy Lee

1970 Gimme Dat Ding - The Pipkins

1975 Typically Tropical â Barbados

and from 1958 Tequila - The Champs

Its a shame that Keith West's 'excerpt' was all we ever saw of the 'Teenage Opera' - it was never finished. Looking at that Vid now from the more innocent age of 1967 'Grocer Jack' would probably be labled a 'paedophile' while West's video would more than likely be banned by the BBC as 'dodgy' and 'suspect'!
Ha, that's what many people think but all the existing tracks were later released, I have the CD. The tracks were

  1. Theme From A Teenage Opera (stereo, and little longer than the original single)
  2. Festival Of Kings (stereo)
  3. Grocer Jack (Excerpt from a Teenage Opera) (stereo)
  4. The Paranoic Woodcutter #1
  5. Mr Rainbow
  6. Glory's Theme (All Aboard!)
  7. On A Saturday
  8. Possum's Dance
  9. Auntie Mary's Dress Shop (stereo)
  10. Love & Occasional Rain (stereo)
  11. Grocer Jack (Reprise)
  12. Sam (stereo)
  13. Farewell to A Broken Doll (stereo)
  14. (He's Our Dear Old) Weatherman
  15. Shy Boy
  16. Grocer Jack's Dream
  17. Barefoot & Tiptoe
  18. Knickerbocker Glory
  19. Dream Dream Dream
  20. Colonel Brown (stereo)
  21. Cellophane Mary Jane
  22. Paranoic Woodcutter #2
  23. Theme From A Teenage Opera (end titles) (stereo)
Keith West was vocalist for Tomorrow and was supported on this track by the band's guitarist Steve Howe (later of Yes). The two of them also released the second single from the Opera, "Sam" although this was only a minor hit (number 38). The whole Opera was written by Mark Wirtz. Tomorrow also had a drummer called Twink who later joined the Pink Fairies and played with various Punk bands.

I see someone else posted Simon Dupree and the Big Sound who later became Gentle Giant. The band at various times featured Dudley Moore and Elton John (then Reg Dwight) on keyboards. Don't get me started.
