A Band of Angels

     
Mike d'Abo thinks this is a picture in the early days arounf 1964. From left to right: John Gaydon on lead vocals & occasional guiter; Jamnie Rugge Price on drums (he didn't want to turn pro, so left the group shortly afterwards); Johnny Baker on lead guitar & backing vocals (he left within a year to continue his Maths studies); Michael d'Abo on keyboards & vocals and finally David Wilkinson on bass guitar & backing vocals.

In the beginning there was a funky little five piece band known to many as
 "A Band Of Angels". The group envolved while Mike d'Abo was still at school in Harrow, and they managed to pick up a few quid for themselves playing around the countryside. Their act comprised mainly of coverversions of current hit records by such as The Shadows, Duane Eddy and Cliff Richard. Upon receiving a disc contract from Ember Records, the band decided to turn professional in March 1964.

While with Ember, they cut about 25 tracks, though many remain un-issued. In fact, the only song traced from that period is "Hide 'n' Seek", which is on the soundtrack album "Just For You" on Decca LKM 4620.

On the United Artists recordings Mike d'Abo was the only band member to actually play an instrument on the sessions. He played piano and duetted with Johnny Gaydon on vocals, while session musicians were hired like Bobby Graham on drums, Big Jim Sullivan on lead guitar and Eric Ford on bass.

James Rugge-Price has also been drummer in the band.

During a tour of French beach and ski resorts, "A Band Of Angels" found themselves deep in debt and they had to work their arses off for six months to pay off everything. An experience as gruelling as this would be enough to put down any band, and thus "A Band Of Angels" were no more.

Mike d'Abo then went to the Manfred Mann band, while John Christian Gaydon became a successful manager, involved at various times with King Crimson; Julie Felix; Emerson, Lake & Palmer; T. Rex; and Roxy Music in partnership with "A Band Of Angels" former manager David Enthoven.

Andy Petre (or Andy Peters) went playing in a group called Timebox in the period September 1966 until August 1967

Officially the group is called "A Band Of Angels", but on the above album "Hitmakers" you will read "The Band Of Angels", a mistake that you will see more often when you read something about the group.

The above album has become a real collectors item, with songs by David Bowie, John Paul Jones (from Led Zeppelin) and Gerry Dorsey, who changed his name to Engelbert Humperdinck later on.

"Leave It To Me" by A Band Of Angels also belong to that catagory, but it's good to see that they're not totally forgotten.

I bought these two singles through an advertisement in the English magazine "Record Collector" in May 1999. Both records are in true mint condition. It only is a pity that there are some stickers on the recordcompany sleeves and on the label. These stickers however give me the impression, that the singles were cancelled before they were actually released.

Hide 'n' Seek/No Time Like The Present

Decca 12010 (UK)


Nothing is known about this group, which released only this single.

John Edward Baker and Mike d'Abo wrote "Hide 'n' Seek" which A Band Of Angles sang on the soundtrack album of "Just For You". But because I don't know the Thyrds version, I'm not sure if it is the same song, but because the soundtrack is released in 1964 and this single at the end of 1964, I guess it's the same song, and the first Mike d'Abo song recorded by somebody else. "Just For You" was released on Decca and the Thyrds single also, which is more prove that it might be the same song.

If you see a copy of the single it will cost you around 30.00.

Miki Dallon

04-66

I'm Gonna Find A Cave/Cheat And Lie

Strike Jh 306 (UK)

 

 

RCA Victor FAS 758 (Sweden)


Miki Dallon was a writer and producer of songs by among others The Sorrows; Rod Stewart; and Boys Blue. He started his own Young Blood Records in 1969.

"Cheat And Lie" was written by Miki Dallon himself, and "A Band Of Angels" used it as the b-side of their most well known song "(Accept My) Invitation". The single was released with a picture cover in the U.K.!!!

The Swedish copy has an art cover with people dancing, only the record company misspelled Miki Dallon's name as: Mike Dallon. It's unbelievable how many mistakes records companies make with printing names, you will see a lot of them further on in this book

All songs written by Miki Dallon, except tracks 5, 16 & 17 written by Lionel Segal.

This is what RPM Records put on their site when reviewing the above CD:
"Well know songwriter and producer through the 60's and 70's had his own performing career from the late 50's to the mid 60's. As a songwriter and producer he scored with The Sorrows "Take A Heart" and Neil Christian's "That's Nice", the songs were also major hits by a variety of artists in most European territories. Mike undertook further independent production work for many major labels throughout the 70's and 80's, having previously run the Strike and Youngblood labels as outlets for his productions through the 60's and 70's. Back in 1958 Miki began his music career as a rock'n'roll pianist with Vince Taylor and Marty Wilde. He followed up with his own group the Medallions appearing on TV shows like 6.5 Special, before teaming up with Mickie Most as a group The Minute Men in 1964.

The song writing began at this point and Miki's first published work was a Mickie Most b-side called "That's Alright" on which Miki also played piano. The song writing, performing and production work all combined in Miki for the next few years with Millwick Music. His trademark being swaggering beat pop and r&b, strident piano and heavy choppy guitar epitomised by his production of his own song "I'll Give You Love". As a result Miki's own singles fared very well on the pirate radio stations and club scene. This is the first ever collection of Miki Dallon's singles which also brings in previously unreleased session recordings by Miki. In addition we've added key productions bearing the Dallon sound and some very rare covers of Miki's best songs. All recordings span 1964-1966, and highlights include Richie Blackmore's guitar on The Sessions "Let Me In" and Jimmy Page's guitar on Nein Christian's "I Like It".

Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow/Every Minute

R.C.A. 2648 (USA)

 

 

RCA Victor 2648 (UK)

The above mentioned single is from a (probably) American band with the same name. After a long search I finally found this single in 1998. "Will You Still Love Me" is a funky cover of the well known song "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow", which was a hit in the USA by among others The Shirells, The Four Seasons and Roberta Flack. Besides the same bandname, this group has nothing else to do with the British "A Band Of Angels" and/or Mike d'Abo, but still I though it's a nice item to mention, especiaaly because I had so much trouble finding it.

Patti La Belle and The Blue Belles

1


Radio London was a so called "pirate station", because it broadcasted from a ship on the North Sea. Radio London was very popular in the mid-sixties, and I wrote down a lot of their Fabulous Forty charts. The above one is one of those unique things. It's also unique because it has a A Band Of Angels record in it. "Leave it To Me" entered the Fab Forty at number 36, and went up to number 30 the next week, but then it already disappeared out of the chart.

In the Fabulous Forty of March 13, 1966 "Invitation" entered the Fab Forty at number 20. Strangely enough it was already out of the Fab Forty the next week.
