Was going through one of my Boxes this Morning and Pulled out my Johnny Hendley Single My Baby came from out of nowhere 45

and realised what a great and wonderful record it is for its Time, prompted by this searched out John and the weirdest single from my shelves (two great sides on this one)

First on Mutt & Jeff and the other on Tie Both released in 1967 and wondered  given the quality of both singles what happened to them, did they go on to record any other singles with name changes where they orignated etc.

Like yourself Rick, I enjoy thumbing through the boxes when I’m in the mood, and what a great feeling it must be to hold a copy of Johnny Hendley or John and the Weirdest. Two great records way up high on my Wants List. Sorry, no info on the artists but I bracket them together with Johnny Hampton - only stumbled across the three of them in the 80’s and they all feature on a ‘best of the best’ mix-tape I did back in the 90’s.

Ed. Johnny Hendley, Johnny Hampton.  I can't separate them on how good I think they are. Just fantastic,  You do see Johnny Hampton for sale occasionally but I can't remember ever seeing a Johnny Hendley. 

Great memories of very special times .

Apart from the actual joy of listening to the music those few words some up one of the other delights of collecting, I remember back when I first started my own journey into soul music and the missed heartbeat coming across a Blue Stax record which though common to find were for me as a fourteen year old new to the music with little money was true treasure. Seeing the label today still warms my heart and brings a smile.

I remember Richard Searling playing Johnny Hendley at Wigan. It was one of his monsters, till it got pressed.

 They didn't do themselves any favours calling themselves John and the Weirdest! Even though it's a totally brilliant doublesider!

Both sides, Richard Searling cover ups at Wigan!

I'm not doubting this thread...i'd just like to see the documentary evidence that John Hendley was John & The Weirdest. I'm sure it's out there! - anyone wish to share?

He co-wrote both sides to begin with

He wasn't the lead singer of The Inspirations as claimed in the other topic either

the Inspirations 'thing' threw me right off. And plenty of writers didn't front as artists.

Johnny Hendley is very rare, I only had the one copy in the 80's and never had a chance at another. Swapped it with Butch for a new play by the Lucky Charms. The Lucky Charms went to the Vicar which I think he played a fair bit.

An interesting thing about Johnny Hendley & the John & The Wierdest is they were both pressed in late September 1967.
