  11. Had a giggle about Tony Clarke being white ! Maybe the writer has only seen the poor quaility TV footage of him singing and not photos of this fine soul man? As for wayne Gibson and the Seven Dwarfs.... these type of records are just embarrassing and hardly “... a sensational sound”as Lenny Gamble might say ;) So many better records out there!
