Message: 1 Date: Sat, 25 Oct 2003 07:57:33 -0000 From: Mark Subject: R B Greaves aka Sonny Childe I really love R B Greaves' records from 1970 on up in that soul pop vein and I was wondering if anyone is familiar with his British recordings from a few years earlier as Sonny Childe. Just curious if they had that same great style as Take a Letter, Always Something, etc. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Not released yet. Good job by the way! Jim Allio -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Still remember when i first heard their FAB 64 hit, "Do you know", for the first tyme(i was eight).....My faves by these TEENS are; above track, "Ill stay by your side", "I see it now"(==AMAZING jangly 66 POP!), "Words aint enough", "Stop(before you break my heart) & "Lies"; this was a 67 45, and WHAT A KILLER 2-sider, EASILY one of the best Scand 6045s == Stop..sounds like the perfect marriage between Tamla & Pop, AMAZING! And "Lies" is a POWER-POP STUNNER! JJ -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

To me, Roberts' finest moment was "Shelly Tell Me Why" by River Deep, which was strongly influenced by "Time Of The Season" by the Zombies!
