Discovered by who else but Ian Levine this recording is now worth a small fortune but only number 337 on Kev Roberts Top 500. To be honest, not a brilliant record but again, it’s rare!
The Del-Larks started out in 1958 as Sammy and The Del-Larks a Doo Wop group with a stateside hit: REMEMBER THE NIGHT.
Bizarrely, Sammy Campbell, the leader of The Del-Larks and the rest of the group started out singing gospel in the church of Lovelace Watkins who became practically a household name in the UK as a singer, marrying an English bride and eventually settling down just a couple of miles from me in Bamford, Rochdale! He had a son, born in Rochdale, who now lives in the US – Gino Watkins.
I’ll Never Forget
Heavily influenced by The ‘In’ Crowd another from The Del-Larks, sort of a comedy number.
