Kenny - "Rollin"

Give it to me Now b/w Rollin' (RAK 1973- French issue)

If you don't know the A-side, well, perhaps it's time to check your record collection. The B-side, however, never seems to turn up on any best-of albums. I think it's well worth a listen. A Martin-Coulter composition, as with most Kenny releases.

Repton Boxing Club - "Jab and Move"

Jab and Move b/w The Hook (1980 Bridge House - UK issue)

Here's nice little Cockney collaboration between actor/boxer Glen Murphy and Lea Hart of Slowbone/Roll-Ups. Backing vocals provided by the Boxers from Repton. Murphy is the son of Bridge House Pub landlord Terry Murphy. Slowbone played regularly at the Bridge House. Released on Bridge House Records, it's all pretty incestuous. Any fan of the Roll-Ups should appreciate this! The B-side (or "Round 2") is an instrumental version. Currently, there's an acetate of this on ebay with "Repton Boxing Machine" written on the label. Who knows, might even be a different version of the song.
