Was a massive play on the scene circa late '72/73

Originally came out in '65 on Lupine then re-issued on Music Merchnt in '72. I believe there may have been three different releases of it on Music Merchant with different flips.

Music Merchant 1002, 1008 & 1010

Useless trivia: Fred Bryant the bass player of 'The Just Brothers' was the session player who laid down the bass part on 'How sweet it is to be loved by you' for Junior Walkers' version, only to be wiped and repleced by Jamersons! This is Fred's claim to fame can you believe, as mentioned at this gig.That's Fred playing the bass, with Marcus Belgrave on trumpet, Uriel Jones on drums and Joe Hunter on piano (that you cannnot see), plus Tonya Hood on vocals). This is where I first met Uriel Jones and cleaned his shoes with my hanky. This began the 5 year courtship of contacts in Detroit, to help me with my session:

Rockafeller Skank to be nerdishly precise.

The Housemartins busked before a gig in Scarborough once. They were headcases but really funny and a great band.

'Sliced tomatoes' was recorded at United Sound Studios in Detroit in 1965. Band members were Richard 'Pistol' Allen (drums) Frank Bryant (bass) Eddie Willis (lead guitar) Jimmy Bryant (lead guitar) Joe Hunter (keyboards) Written and produced by Johnny Terry.

Originally recorded as the 'B' side to vocal track called 'Honey' which was not released at the time. Eventually issued on Hayley Records in UK 2000.

'Sliced tomatoes' issued in 1965 on Lupine. Re released on Music Merchant in 1972. Johnny Terry's wife is sister of Holland brothers, thus the connection.

All christian names listed here are correct.

Hiya Gilly

Good to hear from you. Please give my best to your mum too. I love the fact that on the Lupine issue of 'Sliced tomatoes' it shows as being produced by 'The Lively Ones'!!

Johnny Terry received a five figure cheque a few years ago when HDH got royalties from that Fat Lad (rip off) thing. The individual band members got nothing. Frank B. was particularly ticked off with this because Johnny is listed as the sole writer. On EVERY other Just Brothers song him or Jimmy, or both, shared writing credits. Sadly, Jimmy passed away several years ago, 'Pistol' died recently and Johnny Terry expired this year. Johnny was involved with Jack Montgomery's finest efforts, used to sing with the Drifters (on 'Saturday night at the movies' among many others) and wrote James Brown's first hit 'Please please please'. (They met in juvenile hall!) John McLure and I had the pleasure of being shown around Detroit by Frank in April this year. We saw where Thelma was based, Twenty Grand, Correctone, Burt studios. United Sound and much more. The commentary he provided were hair raising!!

Cheers

Rob, do you have any inormation on the Just Brothers and their 12" disco soul release from the late 70's ... one of the most sought after of all 12" discs according to many hardened collectors that I've spoken to. One would assume that is the same act as the Just Brothers of Sliced Tomatoes ...

See my previous post. Johnny Terry leased it to his brothers in law (Holland brothers)

Has anyone seen / got one of these . . .

Just Brothers " Things Will Be Better Tomorrow " / " Sliced Tomatoes "

It appears in a few discographies, but I've only ever seen the promo with "Things Will Be Better" on both sides.

I see you were asked before and this is a very old thread but could you explain exactly why HDH used a 1965 track three times for Just Brothers records. When HDH recorded new tracks wouldn't they have the resources to finish enough new songs for flip sides and not have to use Sliced Tomatoes again. Was it just as a favour to the Hollands' sister and brother-in-law or did Just Brothers use the song in their live shows and it had a local popularity.

I'm not sure. I know Johnny Terry believed in the song or it could have been that they already had it in the can and didn't want to incur the cost of recording new material. As far as I know the Just Brothers didn't perform any live shows. Hope this helps.
