Diane Ducane "better Late Than Never" Casino Classics

Recommended Posts

OK , go on, laugh if you must , but this is a brill tune !

Did it ever come out on one of the Casino Classics 7" sevens or is it only on the Casino Classics Vol 2 LP ?

:shades:

Hi

I think it was released on the 'Contact' label in the Uk? I remember buying it as a new release after someone reccomended it, played it once or twice then filed it away.

regards

Paul

By sheer coincidence, I have my copy of this in front of me (including a press release!). This is a 7 that came out on UK Contact only (I,m pretty sure) - a 1979 release. Contact seems to be part of RK Records.

According to the press release, 'Diane Ducane is 24 years old, was born in Kingston, Jamaica and now lives in London. She spent most of her childhood in New York and in the early seventies formed her own funk/soul band. She did quite a lot of session work and backed such luminaries as the Detroit Spinners'.

So there you go. I think its an excellent release, certainly nothing to be embarrassed about!

Cheers

Steve.

Was this a Les McCutcheon production?

Sold my (Contact) copy last year had it from a new release but never really liked it that much one of those records Sandy Mountain put away for me. Someone asked me if I had copy whilst I was DJing at The Winter Gardens I agreed a price never expecting the guy to send for it but he did so I let it go. Since then though I've been asked for it a couple of times (isn't that always the way) so I guess its right style / tempo for now. Not a bad record but to me just not that special but certainly not a 'Laughter' inducer by any stretch of the imagination.
