Ernie Terrell - I can't wait [Argo] also a boxer

Interestingly Ernie Terrell was the WBA World Heavyweight Champion in 1965/66 and is the elder brother of Jean Terrell of the Supremes.

You can't always tell Steve, I got a nice 45 by Joe Brown this weekend and it sure wasn't the cheeky cockney with the Bruvvers.

Saw Smokin Joe last year in November just before the 1st anniversary do we held at the venue. Apparently he comes and stays there when he is attending boxing galas in the area. small world really.

If I'm not mistaken it was a remake of a version by New Censation on Pride, written and produced by Van McCoy.

It was the first time that the World Heavyweight title had been split between the WBC and WBA. Muhammad Ali was stripped of the title because he had evaded the draft to go to Vietnam. Ernie Terrell refused to call him by his adopted Muslim name in an effort to force a showdown and when the contest finally happened it was a one-sided affair. For 15 rounds Ali taunted him saying "What's My Name" and utterly outboxed him.

Cassius Clay (as he was then) recorded a version of Ben E. King's 'Stand By Me'.

Ali kept him on his feet for the duration of the fight, to punish and humiliate Terrell. Floyd Patterson had similar treatment for the same thing.

During a very half-hearted record hunt in LA in 1993, I came within a cat's whisker's breadth of buying this. For the novelty value, you understand. Alas, common sense prevaled and I've always regretted it. But not as much as I regret passing up the chance to buy up an all-singing, all-dancing Andy Gibb figurine from an NYC record/junk shop the next year. Not very skilled at this record-buying lark, am I? :D

I'm pretty sure this is...his brothers Leonard, and J.C. (they played guitar and base respectively), - and Rudy Alverez drummer (not family).

They also went under the heading '...and his Swinging Heavyweights'
