Rhythm Rascals On Sonic - Ever Played?

Posted

I bought this blind a couple of weeks back, THE RHYTHM RASCALS (WITH BEBBIE BOY BUTCH) - GIRL BY MY SIDE / WHY DO YOU HAVE TO GO - SONIC 117. has this ever been played? Side 1 is an uptempo dancer with shades of The Blendels "You need love" in the chorus while side 2 is a beautiful soulful downtempo/beat ballad which is a cross between I Do Love You and No Time For You. Blown away by both sides, seriously, even if it turns out to be a 5 quid cheapie.

Came out on Roulette as well. The beat ballad side has the same backing as the flip to the Soul Communicators on Fee Bee "please don't go". Think the group was somehow connected to Fee Bee and/or Chuck Corby??

I think you are spot on as it does say Fee bee in the run off groove.

wasnt by the rythmm rascals on roulette though i do have both they are exactly the same so they probably just had a name change for the national release.

Couldn't agree with you more!! Pete always rated this,great double sider,thought I was the only onesmile.gif.Am sure Girl by my side is also the backing track to Chuck Corby on Fee Bee,think it's called Baby I need you(Red Label/Black writing) notice that on the Sonic copy it has Sonic records,Hollywood,anyone know anything about the label?

I have added by sides of the above mentioned record so people can have a listen,not sure what happened to the text on the "why do you have to go" clip i just edited it and it went funny but i think it still plays.

Anyway a great double sider which i have had for years and always loved,for me the "why do you have to go" side does it for me more and liked mentioned earlier it shares the same backing and vocally similar to soul communicaters "please don't go" on fee bee and i just noticed that the rhythm rascals is a febe music tune.

Enjoy folks and thanks Pete for reminding me about this tune :yes:

Got the Chuck Corby on Fee Bee (119) it's called "I need your love", exactly the same as Rhythm Rascals on Roulette.

Chuck also recorded "Complete opposites" which came out on Chess, also came out on Sonic under another artist name. Got to double check whether this is the same as Chuck Corby, or him under another name.

So the connection with Fee Bee looks about right.

Interesting that Pete.

I covered it up as Billy Stewart... nearly 30 years ago!

Rhythm Rascals is, according to the soul harmony singles book:

Jerry Hilton

Cleveland "Butch" Martin

Earl Thompson

Robert Thompson

Jim Mitchell (bass)

Formerly the R&B group the Diadems and, except for mitchell, later of the Del Vikings on Fee Bee. It doesn't mention this but Jerry Hilton was obviously in jerry hilton and Gentle Rain.

Thanks to everyone for their input on this, nice to know a few people rate it and very interesting to find out some facts behind it, I'd honestly never heard of it. One of those I wouldn't have minded keeping but needs must.

Scottish soulie mid-tempo connisseurs will remember this from the mid 80s, 'Why...' a tape swapper fave! though been around before that by what Sean says. Affordable/overlooked, everybody should have one, 'Why do you have to go' defo the superior side - this record is SUBLIME, in fact a lot like Bobby Samsom on Sublime!

I'm sure I heard someone play this out at Morely Carr...

As good as it is Mark (and it really is good) it's poor compared to the Soul Communicators "Please don't go"

Thought Chuck Corby was worth double, and not as easy to come by as Rhythm Rascals.

Let me know if you see one for that price?

Nev is pretty much spot on with his prices imo Martyn.

On saying that I've got an Ex copy of the Rhythm Rascals on Roulette for £10 if anybody wants it.... :wicked:

P.S. Why does 'Rhythm' get spelt wrong so often on this site :(

"Chuck Corby - I Need Your Love" was also "booted/reissued" on a lookalike "Fee Bee" for the other side, which was a popular toon in Pittsburgh. It ain't rare, just sat in the collections of a lot of "Pittsburgh oldies" fans.

Just come across this topic. Have had both Chuck Corby (Fee Bee) and Rhythm Rascals (Sonic) for years and to my ears Chuck Corby has trumpet/horns in backing whilst Rhythm Rascals has saxophone. Also Rhythm Rascals does not have as much base.

Couldn’t choose between them as I think both versions are great.

You're right. Not the same singers nor the same instrumental take. The Chuck Corby for me does it better with the little necessary Oomps that really lacks in the Rhythm Rascals 'light'n'tight' version that, no offense to anyone, I never liked.
