Took Part 1 and Part 2 of Bobby Gregg's The Jam and mixed them down into 1 rocking track for you!!!
More rock less not!
Robert J. (Bobby) Gregg (born 1929 or 1930 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) is a musician who has performed as a drummer and has also been a record producer. As a drum soloist and band leader he recorded one album and several singles, including one Top 40 single in the United States. But he is better known for his work as a drummer on several seminal 1960s songs, including Bob Dylan's "Like a Rolling Stone" and Simon and Garfunkel's "The Sound of Silence". He was also temporarily a member of The Hawks, which later became known as The Band.
Gregg first attracted attention by 1955 as the only white member of the otherwise all-black group Steve Gibson and the Red Caps. By 1962, he fronted Bobby Gregg and His Friends for a single, "The Jam - Part 1", which reached #14 on the Billboard R&B chart and #29 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The B-side of the single was "The Jam - Part 2". In 1963, he put out an album, released on Epic Records, called Let's Stomp and Wild Weekend. In 1964 and 1965, he released the singles "Any Number Can Win", "MacDougal Street", "It's Good to Me" and "Charly Ba-Ba". He also acted as a record producer at this time, producing songs by Sun Ra, Erma Franklin, Richard Wylie and Frank Hunter. He sometimes played the drums on the records he produced

Many moons ago, about 5 or 6 lifetimes ago i used to date a little lady who loved this here band R.E.M. - Me, not so much but Syd Barrett on the other hand is a whole other story. Anyway, this little lady also read little lady magazines and this here little flexi-disk came out of one called "Sassy"... yeah i own a record that came out of Sassy magazine so what... Im sure at the time Sassy must have sold a billion copies of the mag because of this selling point, i guess REM were huge back then but who knows how many of these little plastic flexi's exist now? I wonder how long these things will last? This one is starting to sound a bit fuzzy and almost makes it sound like an old 78... anyway, there is no need to say anything about R.E.M. - personnaly i don't care much about them and what can the little old devil add about the the madcap himself Syd? Just check this odd cover of Syd's Dark Globe as done by Mikey Stipe....

Alright today we get the odd cover song from one time lead singer of Atomic Rooster & Colosseum Chris Farlowe. This is Mr. Farlowe before his prog rock career was set in motion doing a kind of gypsy version of The Rolling Stones "Paint It Black".
I've posted his voice on the devil's music already doing All In Satan's Name with Atomic Rooster back when i did my Devil Month....
Farlowe's musical career began with a skiffle group, The John Henry Skiffle Group in 1957, then The Johnny Burns Rhythm and Blues Quartet in 1958. He met lead guitarist Bob Taylor (born Robert Taylor, 6 June 1942, London) in 1959 and he joined the band Taylor was in (The Thunderbirds), recording five singles for the Columbia label, without much success. He then moved to Andrew Loog Oldham's Immediate label and recorded another eleven singles, five of them cover versions of Rolling Stones songs; ("Paint It, Black", "Think", "Ride On, Baby", "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction", "Out of Time"). His most successful was "Out of Time" which was number 1 in the UK Singles Chart in 1966. His next four singles were also well received. The most famous was "Handbags and Gladrags" (which was written by Mike d'Abo), later covered by Rod Stewart and more recently by the Stereophonics).
As an English R&B star of the early 1960s, Farlowe released one single, "Stormy Monday Blues", under the pseudonym, 'Little Joe Cook', which helped perpetrate the myth that he was black.
His association with jazz rock group Colosseum began in the 1970s, recording a live album and three studio albums Daughter of Time, Bread and Circuses and Tomorrow's Blues (2006). Daughter of time is a very under rated album IMHO...
In 1972 he joined Atomic Rooster and is featured on the albums Made in England and Nice and Greasy. He also sang on three tracks of Jimmy Page's Death Wish II soundtrack 1982 and Outrider album Hummingbird, Prison Blues & Blues Anthem in 1988.

Here is a 45 i found while digging in Philly and it makes sense since The Futures Formed in 1968 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, U.S.A.
The Futures comprised of:
and Henry McGilberry
Amjo Records released their first single in 1970, 'Breaking Up' b/w 'Our Thing.'
Richard Wright (deceased) sang lead on the Amjo side, along with other members, that with one or two exceptions, differed from the previously mentioned names.
Avalanche Records reissued the Amjo single the following year.
so enjoy this funky temps style soul from the city of brotherly love.
