 That stereo cut is a a re-recording. Done without any involvement of John Carter or Ken Lewis.

 No, I imagine not, Wurzel. I'm still wondering about the stereo cut of Funny How Love Can Be on 7N 35222 - was that released at that time on an LP? I must look out for LP's

 Hi Jules, John couldn´t even name the guys on a very late 60´s photo of the IVY LEAGUE (where only Perry Ford was left from the early days) so I doubt he has any idea about the 70s line up. Sorry.

 That's really nice, Wurzel. What can we ask John - maybe how did Mike Curtis get involved? I remember seeing the 'Ivy League' when Ford had recently left, I think this was 1974, and the charming bunch of guys told me about the changes; pity I don't recall the details. If you listen to some of the Ivy League on YouTube there are some (stereo) examples of the hits not sounding quite the same as the original mono 45 - like Funny How or Tossing And Turning. I guess the later bands recorded the repertoire again, and you probably wouldn't know what you're getting on a CD compilation

 Guys, here´s an exclusive 45cat commentary by John Carter regarding that photo Juke Jules talks about:
"The line-up from left to right is Viv Prince, Me, Rod Clark and Jimmy Page. Ken was going through one of his many ill periods---he had diabetes from early on and he spent many periods in hospital. “Your Mamma---“ had just gone into the top 30 so they needed urgent photos. We did quite a lot of gigs without Ken and at one stage Rod called himself Rod Lewis!!!
All for now
Cheers,
John"

Here´s hoping to get some more feedback from John for the site!

 Thanks Guys, excellent! Is it any good, Groovemaster? It plays when you follow Deepinder's link, but you'll have to be quick, it won't be 'today' for much longer ;-)
Sounds good to me, but I always enjoyed the Carter-Lewis thing with the vocal harmony. Viv Prince is in fine form and the young Page shows enough accomplished style that you'd want this in any Page collection. Love the piano timbre too, maybe this was Geoff Goddard

 John Carter is the one in glasses, Ken Lewis is the guy with the pompadour hair to John's left, and Viv Prince has his arms folded. Not pictured is bassist Rod Clark, who was shortly replaced by Rupert Ross, who himself died of cancer the following year.

 At least there is now another Oriole other than George Chisholm's that can have the centres pressed out to be re-fitted to those Oriole-American gems that had been thus vilated! :)


Is this record any good?

 I'm unfamiliar with the band.Who is the fellow in the glasses and the short chubby chap. I note that Jimmy Page has brought his duffle bag (other photo) . Ray Fenwick was right, he became disillusioned when one lunchbox too many was opened by studio guitarist during dinnertime.

 Nice blog entry, good photograph, now I'm wondering which were John and Ken in that photo?

 CARTER-LEWIS AND THE SOUTHERNERS RELEASED 'YOUR MOMMA'S OUT OF TOWN' released 24 Oct 1963

When I was at art college in 1963, I was asked to play on 'Your Momma's Out Of Town' and 'Somebody Told My Girl' by Carter-Lewis and The Southerners and today sees the release of the single. I had a free reign on the b-side of this and there had been a lot of interest in who the guitarist had been on this track - this was to open a tightly-closed door to the world of studio session musicians. The photograph is from the promo shoot, outside the British Museum. On the left is drummer Viv Prince, who played with the Pretty Things on their early recordings.
