Steady Date

De-Angelis-Marcucci, 1983Recorded: 02-11-59

Johnny Kidd (vocals) - Mike West, Tom Brown (backing Vocals) - Alan Caddy (lead) - Tony Doherty (rhythm) - Johnny Gordon (bass) - Brian Unknown - (drums)

Looking for a follow-up to the chart debut, along came this little teen ballad which remained unreleased at the time. Whether that decision was right or not remains academic however, as the second single turned out to be "If You Were The Only Girl In The World". Hmm, yeah.
