The Dint - The Black Drug also re-titled a couple of the original songs see below - probably sloppy copy editing more than anything.
Man from U. It was impressive, but maybe because I'm old enough to Ed Spy - The Clee-Shays - Super Spy Themes the original, that's the one I'd go with. Easy to picture it being used in a cowboy film. The original title was 'Ed Spy' with the writing credit going to Yoshida, rather than Voshida. Sloan - Well, the liner notes listed this one as 'Secret Agent Man', but the tune as actually a toughened-up cover of Irving Szathmary theme from 'Get Smart'. Their taunt cover was one of the album highlights.
My guess is it's missing some songs from all the EPs released in Japan. Deke Dickerson's liner notes for the CD are really good - Ed Fournier gave him some good material to work with. They released 4 original albums in Japan according to the CD liners.
Unless there is a lot of overlapping between the albums, many of their recordings are missing on the CD. I remember finding a discography site that listed just two items I took to be LPs, but I'd have to relocate that. I think John Blair lists just one single and one LP, but that is presumably a case of date or genre cut-offs. Was it always the same five or six?
Given that this band was a Delvy production, did they appear in other guises? I suppose I should compare the lists of tracks with the Challengers stuff! Not that track names help much.
I heard a classic Challengers piece the other night while getting groceries in King Soopers - which number I now forget, but maybe it was even their Ed Spy - The Clee-Shays - Super Spy Themes of Pipeline.
I was thinking how unusual and nice it was to hear something like that in a public place when suddenly near the end I realized it was not the version I was used to. I think John Blair's book only lists U. The albums aren't listed in the notes but the booklet has a photo of them partly covering each other.
I'm pretty sure the titles are the following though:. The US label was Delvy's Triumph on which he also issued various surf bands, including the Challengers. See Blair for listings. The King impress seems to have been Union, with US before the catalog Ed Spy - The Clee-Shays - Super Spy Themes for at least singles.
Union UPS also per Klas. Union The cheesier the better. I can't possibly cover everything here, but see if any of these are your cup of T. Not just the songs everyone knew, but even the incidental A Man And A Woman - Matt Monro - Born Free (Invitation To The Movies) music!
