Subject: RE: Origins: Culloden Moor.
Thanks Grockle. Officially the A- side was Culloden Moor, I now own a copy myself. You can find this single listed on a couple of 45 discography sites. Mike, John and Sandy appeared with Jimmy Shand on a few BBC radio broadcasts in the 60's and then disappear, after just 1 single. You can pick this up second hand on the Internet, though nobody has Youtubed the single yet.
There is a heavy 60's brass on it, due to the arranger being a jazz musician. I can't think where my father got his arrangement from, as there are slight lyric changes which make mew think he heard a cover.
It is extremely obscure, and there are other tunes (including a jazz one) called Culloden Moor which are not this work.
Even the record's 2 Polydor producers who were still around, didn't remember who the act were!
