And here's the story of the Olliecaster

Baked Jam Roll In Your Eye

Poor Little Heartbreaker

14 Mar 1969

Did the Baked Jam Roll originate in that Caff across the road from Club Noreik?. I seem to remember it was a favourite on the menu. Patto said you could always tell whether what you were eating was a main or a dessert by whether it was smothered in gravy or custard.

To help your memory, here is a photo of Barnabas (roadie) in said caff, having cleaned-up his jam roll. Nice wallpaper - David Baxendell 2019

Yellow Van

 You've Got The Chance

3 Oct 1969


 

According to John Halsey, the backing vocals on Beggin' are Mike, Ollie, and Clive along with Kiki Dee, and the additional percussion was played by Barry Morgan, later of Blue Mink.

Chris Homes: Yeh love Kiki. In a reverse situ, Timebox provided handclaps on Billie Davis's eurohit' I Want To Be Your Baby'

Timebox tracks included:

Beggin

A Girl Like You

The David Symonds Show 21 June 1968

Stay There

 Yellow Van

David Lee Travis 22 September 1969

 ‘Shapes And Sounds’ offers their four remaining session tracks from the Beeb archives, which include a beautiful version of their famed ‘Beggin’, a rendition of ‘Yellow Van’ which most definitely puts the single cut to shame, a superb take of ‘Stay There’ and perhaps most importantly, an admirable slice of blue-eyed soul in their cover of the Young Rascals’ ‘A Girl Like You’, which the band never recorded outside of the BBC.

Moose on the Loose

The Great Lost Album 1969

Moose on the Loose

Produced by Wayne Bickerton

[Not to be confused with The Original Moose on the Loose which is a singles compilation.]

The Deram Anthology and Beggin compilations include singles and b-sides plus tracks recorded for the unreleased album. Whilst they form comprehensive documents of the band's recording career, both releases miss the golden opportunity to finally present the intended album Moose on the Loose in its full glory.

All tracks are Halsall/Patto compositions except Country Dan and City Lil and Gone Is The Sad Man - which are Halsall alone.
