Vogue used to fascinate me as a teen. I used to get those little yellow new release booklets in the late '50s and the Vogue singles all looked to be by interesting artists but none of the shops on my patch (Dartford to Woolwich) stocked them. Sometimes when I went on an expedition to Brixton or up to Soho I'd see them in shops but never got to hear most of them at the time. An older kid at school (my R&B mentor) gave me his copy of Shirley & Lee's "Let The Good Times Roll" and I just loved it. I eventually bought a Thurston Harris, a Gene & Eunice, and later The Olympics and Bobby Bland but most remained a mystery. However quite a few of those Aladdin pop records proved to be disappointing when I finally heard them in later years. Big T Tyler proved to be a goodie tho.
