Bearing in mind that Don Gardnere recorded also on TNT and the elad strongly (!) sounds like him I do believe it is him. Personally I do prefer the other side "I`m Sitting In" :thumbsup:

Mak, I asked Don about the Shep TnT 45 at Prestatyn last year and he said it wasnt him!!!! I shown him his name in the credits on the 45 but he still said he didnt know anything about it!! Must admit after listining too the record it sure does sound like Dons Voice!will put the track on Cd and let him listen too it when i see him again later on this year at Prestatyn weekender.Oh and he said he couldnt remember the Cedrick recording sessions either :thumbsup:

Andy Dyson, Mick H and myself had dinner with Don the year before at Prestatyn, along with Lou Pride. Upon Andy showing Don the 45 he said he had no knowledge of it or as Graham says Cheating Kind ever getting a release.

Andy does say though that Don later during the weekend said the Shep 45 is indeed him???? :thumbsup:

Don's memory though is terrible, with very little recollection of anything we asked during dinner :thumbsup:

I always remember reading about it in B+S , I even wrote the name Lucas Williams on the label :thumbsup::thumbsup::wicked: . Which begs the question who is Lucas Williams?

It's James Sheppard. Will have to listen to both the Hull recordings of Shep & Limelights and Shep on TNT and compare voices.
