Little Someone & ?

Recommended Posts

I've got a track on tape that's lost the track listing and can't remember the name or the artist. I seem to remember Gary Rushbrooke playing it about 20 years ago

The corus goes:

I can get you off my mind, oh yeah

I can get you out of my life, oh yeah

Because I've found me someone

Someone to love me

Someone to hold me

Someone to kiss me

I think it's by Little ????? & the ?????'s

Anyone got any ideas?

thanks

don't recognise the track but two suggestions:

Little Hooks and the Kings

Litte sherman and the Mod swingers

(this could probably be quite a long thread of wild guesses :lol: )

Knowing how the Djs used to like to have a laugh with cover - up names this might be a cover up?? So the title could just be a clue as to who it really is.

They used to do things like

'The C and W singers featuring Anne Beverley', (no prizes for guessing that one).

There is a tune running around my head that has some of those lyrics in, but dont wait for the artist to pop into my head. But it is a kind of mid tempo female vocal, not really the stuff that Gary used to love and push.

I know it! I know it!

I've got the tune in my head now and I'm gonna be singing it the rest of the day.

It's actually a mid to up tempo male group sound with a cracking horn break in it.

I've got it on an old Dave Evison (Signal Radio) tape from about 1988 at home when he used to have guest DJ's in (may well have been Gary Rushbrooke?).

Great tune!! I'll dig the tape out and see who it is when I get home from work tonight. However, I've got a feeling it was covered up at the time, possibly under the name of Red-Top Young????

I'm off to hum the tune all afternoon now - cheers Hippo!!!!

Found it!!

Somehow went straight to the tape despite there being about 500 in the same cupboard!!!

I was wrong on both counts (shock!!) it wasn't Red Top Young and it wasn't Gary Rushbrook guesting on Dave Evison's show.

Hippo was in the right area. It was Little Ron and the Esquires - I've found someone.

It was played by Butch as part of HIS guest spot on Dave Evison's show. On the tape he says it was originally played by Gary Rushbrooke at the Casino in 1978 covered up as the Simms Twins.

WHAT A TUNE - Somebody buy this and get it spun at nighters again please!!!

That's the one!! Many thanks Ferret.

I've got a real good recording of it on a CD somewhere that I'll dig out and put up at the weekend, if anyone is interested

Is there still the one known copy??? Not really my cuppa tea to be honest. Will go and have another listen, not heard if for a while.
