The Staccatos - Here and now & He was a friend of mine [1968-1969].


Steve Lonsdale: vocals/ Brian le Gassick: vocals, guitar/ Eddie Boyle: bass/ Gary Chaplin: drums/ Richard Crouse: guitar

This major contribution to SA's pop history was an adaption of a Bert Russell composition which has been recorded by many others including Solomon Burke (1962), Tom Petty, The Pretty Things, The Rolling Stones, Freddie Scott and Betty Harris. Bert Russell is really Bert Berns, a prolific writer of soul classics.
