No they're not it's a joke name for the Duprees, this record was released in the UK and presumably in Europe as the Duprees on Mercury (it's exactly the same) and just to prove it LOL here's a photo from the picture sleeve ;oP

So did I Brett a good few years ago now ;o) Mind you it took some finding at the time although there seem to be a few more around now. Seems that 50 has been the going rate for a while now though ;o))

First heard the Italian Asphalt & Pavement record throu Marco Santucci and what a brilliant name for a band. Apparently it did actually chart in May 1970.

I saw the Colossus copy 2 weeks ago for $7 on an Altanta dealers list. I kid you not.

It's a fabulous record. Absolutely love the brass and the harmonies in the chorus.

Talking of fabulous - the Duprees official web site is very "Viva Las Vegas". http://www.duprees.com/home.html
