RECORDING NOTES
The Fentones: The recording of "The Breeze And I" on the 1982 compilation LP "I'm A Moody Guy" (and subsequent CD re-issue) is an uncredited alternate take.  The original released single featured an acoustic guitar playing the melody on the song's second verse, this was overdubbed onto the selected "best" take.  "Take Five" was eventually released on "20 Classic Instrumental Rarities" LP in 1985.  It later turned up alongside "Mick's Tune" and "Gringo" (the latter two in stereo) on Sequels' superb "Jumpin' - Instrumental diamonds 1" CD in 1990 (now long deleted).

SHANE FENTON UNRELEASED:
"That Old Yeah Yeah Feeling". This track actually appeared on "Scopitone" and "Cinebox"/"Colorama" Film Jukeboxes on the Continent in the 1960's but nowhere else that I know of.  Other unreleased Shane Fenton titles currently remain unknown.

FENTONES UNRELEASED:
"Teardrops", "Caravan", "Raucous", "A Love Like Yours" + one more, title unknown.  "That Old Yeah Yeah Feeling" (not in the UK at least).  There may be others but EMI's paperwork is rumoured to be less than helpful in establishing correct details - Do you know of any?  Two recordings made during their association with Duffy Power, "Lawdy Miss Clawdy" and "Money Honey" (featuring Ginger Baker on drums) recently re-appeared on 2003 Duffy Power release on RPM records, "Leapers And Sleepers" (right) - RPM Records (Click on picture for larger view)
