  9. My daughter is in her final year at school and is studying media. She is currently doing a project about The Mod Scene / Northern Soul and other era's of music from the past and present. I have given her loads of info about the northern scene and a bit about the mod scene. She wants two 45's that were played on the 60,s Mod scene that she can (shock Horror) glue to the front of her project. Not knowing that much about the music I am looking for two Mod records from this era , one maybe on American and the other on British, that not only look good but also sound good. These I would then try to buy cheaply to attach to the project. Not that knowledgeable about the subject has anybody got any suggestions for me to consider. Thanks Ian
  10. MY DARLIN' CREDITED TO DIANE LEWIS BUT THOUGHT TO BE HERMAN GRIFFIN. TRYING TO FIND OUT FOR MY MATE ESSO IF THERE IS A VOCAL VERSION OF THIS TRACK. MANAGED TO FIND THIS OUT ABOUT HERMAN GRIFFIN WHICH IS INTERESTING IN ITSELF DOES ANYONE KNOW? CLICK BELOW FOR TRACK https://www.youtube.c...next=1&index=97 Herman Griffin and Herman Lewis are the same person, real name Herman Lewis Griffin. He started out in Detroit (where he was a native, or at least living there) and was involved with the very early Motown productions. He was married to Motown singer Mary Wells for a while. Around 1966, after his marriage to Wells had ended, he married Marian Jackson, alias Gigi from the Cincinnati girl vocal group the Charmaines. He ended up relocating to Cincinnati. We're not sure how active Griffin was in the local performing scene, but he was quite active in recording. Not only with helping his wife's group, but he was also involved with the Strangers In Town recordings, using his relationship with the Columbia records Date subsidiary (the Charmaines were on the Date label) to issue their 1st 45. Griffin also partnered with Cincinnati area producer Gordon Neal on a couple record labels, Prime and Stone Blue. Prime issued a record by the Shirtails who had also released a 45 by Date. The Stone Blue label only released one 45, but it's a brilliant midtempo soul record - "Who's Kissing You Tonight" (credited to Herman Lewis) that was later issued on Mercury records. The flip side of the Stone Blue record was a duet by Griffin and Jerri Jackson, his wife's sister. It's not clear if these songs were recorded in Cincinnati or Golden World in Detroit. The Mercury issue of "Who's Kissing You Tonight" has a different flipside song with Griffin only. Gordon Neal ended up using the Stone Blue name for his music publishing. In 1969/70 Griffin hooked up with a new group called The Boys In The Band. The BITB project seems to have both Detroit and Cincinnati connections. The records were produced by New York City people, including Bob Feldman and Richard Gottehrer of Strangeloves fame. Their 1st 45 "(How Bout A Little Hand For) The Boys In The Band / "Something Heavy" was a hit, reaching the 30s on the national charts. This was issued on Spring records, a MGM soul subsidiary. The group released a second 45 on Spring and a third 45 on a Detroit label. After the BITB 45s, there does not seem to be any more Herman Griffin recordings that have Ohio connections. Herman Griffin died in 1989. Discography As Herman Lewis: Who's Kissing You Tonight / Right Direction (Stone Blue 101) c. 1969 Who's Kissing You Tonight / Think Twice Before You Walk Away (Mercury 73002) c. 1970 As The Boys In The Band: (How Bout A Little Hand For) The Boys In The Band / Something Heavy (Spring 103) c. 4/70 As Herman Griffin And The Boys In The Band: Music Gonna Save The World / Groovin' With The Boys In The Band (Spring 109) 1970 Are You For Me Or Against Me / Gettin' Better (Magic Touch 007) 1970/1 Promo copies of the Mercury 45 exist with "Think Twice...." on both sides.
