TWO IN THE MORNING - Spooners Crowd

Two In The Morning

Yet another Twisted Wheel all-nighter instrumental, it drove us mad, because it was a derivative of Green Onions from Booker T And The MG’s: we couldn’t find a copy anywhere. But yes; Roger Eagle had it, from that record rondevous on Blackfriers Street just next to the bridge over the lovely Irwell. And it was played at 2 a.m. at the ‘Old’ Wheel (Brazennose Street.)

The Delights Orchestra released this great Instrumental – soul sometimes seems to have had a horse obsession. This funk track was released in 1968. They were a six piece white band and that’s as much as we know. Oh, except, of course, that this track was a direct rip-off of The Horse.

Original of course was from Cliff Nobles, or was it, there is another Horse from Wilburt Harrison. Then there is The Fantastic Johnny C – with Hitch It To The Horse.

Good instrumental from Puccio Roelens, and Italian (the only one on this website?) pianist, composer and record producer. Odd title for a track, maybe lost something in translation!
