Betty Boo – Say It Isn’t So c/w Popcorn & Mohawks – Say It Isn’t So [Instr] [UK Grapevine GRP 125] 24 Aug 1979 [Written: Richard Wylie,Tony Hestor] [Producer: Richard Wylie] Ala King [MCPS].

Betty Boo real name Betty Winston who along with her younger sister Jackie and fellow sisters Pat and Diane Lewis recorded three 45 singles as The Adorables for Ed Wingate’s legendary Golden World label during an eighteen month period. With the tour de force of the three 45 release’s being their in demand Ooh Boy/Devil In His Heart [GW25].

Following Berry Gordy’s buy out of Golden World label Betty continued to record several, at the time unissued songs for Popcorn Wylie. Following a licensing deal between Soul Bowl proprietor John Anderson and Popcorn Wylie these unissued sides would eventually see the light of day through their subsequent release on the Grapevine label of the 1970’s. The most popular of Betty’s sides at that time was the perennial favourite ‘Say It Isn’t So’ due to the extensive promotional airplay it was given by influential northern soul Dj’s Richard Searling, Ian Clark and Poke. ‘Say It isn’t So’ Went on to gain 45 single release as well as featuring on the second Grapevine album ‘The Sound Of The Grapevine’ A second song ‘Spellbound’ which too back in the day became a hugely popular spin was to only ever gain a release as an album track on the first Grapevine album ‘Talk Of The Grapevine’ along with Betty’s unissued version of ‘[Somebody] Stop That Boy’. A song that did gain a release by Jimmy [Soul] Clark as the flipside to his northern soul classic ‘[Come On And Be My] Sweet Darlin’ [Soul Hawk 001]. So now nearly 40 years later we at Soul Junction records have rectified this previous over sight and have now finally given Betty’s ‘Spellbound ‘ the 45 release it richly deserves complete with the previously unissued [on any format] instrumental version featured on the flipside.

The artist name of Betty Boo arose on the day of Betty’s birth when her mother looked into her cot and exclaimed ‘That’s the biggest bootie I ever seen on a newborn child’ a family nickname that stuck to this day. Although ‘Spellbound’ is credited to just Betty Boo, her former Adorables partners Pat and Diane Lewis, and sister Jackie are featured on the recording as un-credited backing singers.

The Adorables
Vocal soul group from Detroit, Michigan, active in the early 1960s. The members were sisters Pat and Diane Lewis and sisters Betty and Jackie Winston.

UK Northern Soul by the future Uriah Heep guys. Check the great mod psych / freakbeat flip, also on my channel.

If you collect this kind of stuff on 45 – drop me a line as I quite often have similar records or spares for trade etc… If you played in the band or know a band member – please let me know. If you have the record at home and it’s nothing you need to keep – please let me know. Thanks!

So it’s not the usual music you’ll hear on Chris’ infamous Lifted Music Show. But none the less, this is a history lesson of a different genre of Dance Music.

“I couldn’t find any decent mixes of this era of Garage. Only the ultra cheesy commercial pop music that was about around the millennium. The tracks in this mix were the basis for that explosion of Craig David, So Solid, Artful Dodger etc. This is part of my history in dance music, that I will treasure forever – it’s dedicated to those that were there at the time, yet I hope some people just getting into dance music and hearing these tracks for the first time can understand and appreciate the feel good emotion it brings, and reasoning why.”

Mark Fry – The Witch

June 1972

Dreaming With Alice (reissued in 2006)

Acid Folk classic from 1972

Originally up on the Italian RCA imprint IT Dischi

Dreaming with Alice. Fry was studying art in Italy in 1972, and a friend set him up in a recoding studio in Rome to cut an album with a handful of musician friends whose names Fry has long since forgotten. The original LP never got released outside of Italy, but somehow the album’s reputation spread by word of mouth, and for fans of psychedelic folk the album is considered a classic. Bootleg versions popped up all over the place, and copies of the original release have sold for over $2000 at auction. Fry, meanwhile, tried unsuccessfully to get a record deal back home in England, and has spent most of his life between traveling and making a living selling his paintings in France. While he had long stopped pursuing music professionally, he enthusiastically lent his support and participation when Sunbeam Records re-issued Dreaming with Alice in 2006. Thirty-four years after its recording, it was officially released outside of Italy for the very first time.

After listening to Dreaming with Alice, it’s not hard to figure out why the album appeals so strongly to a specific group of music listeners. Fry’s style on this recording evokes performers like Donovan and Syd Barrett, with all the hippie mysticism and other accessories (legal and otherwise) which that implies. But if you’re into psychedelic music, especially with acoustic guitars, then you’ll find much to like on Dreaming with Alice. The music is as dreamlike and trance-inducing as the album’s title implies, but it is also quite melodic. The title song is unique in that its nine verses are not played together, but with one verse at a time prefacing each of the other tracks. The playing, considering it was done in an inferior studio (the soundproofing was so poor they couldn’t use drums), is remarkably solid and tight as well. The highlight for me is a six-minute song called “The Witch,” a steady, determined jam that makes as good a use of the sitar in a rock context as any song outside of “Norwegian Wood.”

Tea And Symphony – Terror In My Soul


UK (Birmingham) Acid Folk band that started as a trio in 1968 and recorded this their first album in 1969 “An Asylum For The Musically Insane” which was on the EMI imprint Harvest Records. During the same period they toured with Bakerloo.

Given high kudos by the sixties UK music press who called it Science Fiction Acid-Folk or a mix of Tyrannosaurus Rex, Third Ear Band and Scaffold gone mad (I kid you not)

The band folded in 1972 but for those there at the time (legendary Mothers venue, August 1968) combining classical, blues and folk influences with surreal humour and with theatre in the mix, they are fondly remembered.

Dave Clempson (‘Clem’) – guitar
Jeff Daw – flute, guitar, vocals
Gus Dudgeon – drums
James Langston – guitar, vocals, woodwinds
Nigel Phillips – keyboards, vocals, percussion
Bob Lamb – drums

Traditional English rural pub folk music session at The Bell, Chittlehampton, Umberleigh, Devon, UK

Traditional English rural pub folk music session at The Bell, Chittlehampton, Umberleigh, Devon, UK

This regular, mainly traditional English tune session, takes place in the heart of a very traditional rural Devon pub at the Bell at Chittlehampton, Umberleigh, Devon, UK and is one of my favourites. The atmosphere is great. The traditional English folk musicians extend a traditional Devon welcome to acoustic musicians who want to join in and the rural Devon pub audience always seem to be very appreciative.

This regular traditional mainly English pub session at The Bell, Chittlehampton is usually led by members of the excellent ceilidh, folk dance and barn dance band, Bloater Town English Country Dance band so the quality of the musicianship is pretty high. However, last night (Easter Monday 2012), I also spotted the brilliant Rob Murch happily playing away in the corner of the bar. Rob Murch, well known member of The Dartmoor Pixie Band and the Moor Music Trio, plays the 5-String Banjo ‘finger-style’ and is well known to be one of the finest exponents of this once popular but now rarely heard way of playing the banjo.

Featured also in this video of the session at The Bell Chittlehampton is yours truly, Rockin’ Robin, on the soprano saxophone, taking advantage of a kind lady in the audience who said she would do the videoing for me so I could be in the picture for a change.

If you are ever in the Devon area around Chittlehampton near Umberleigh and enjoy listening to or playing traditional English folk tunes in a really traditional English rural pub, why not give the landlord at the Bell a telephone call, find out when the next session is playing and come along, enjoy and perhaps you too will soon be dancing in the aisle 🙂
