Just uploaded these videos, and thought you may (or may not) wish to listen to these.

Champs Elysees:

Rough Rider:

Personally, I don't think they're too bad. I presume the timing slots in with the rise of 2-tone.

Interesting, though neither was my cuppa. I did find it, very amusing, they used the font, they did, for "Rocksteady Records". I normally associate it, with "The Man Who Fell To Earth", or Metalheads, Iron Maiden! Smile

Neither not really my cuppa also, although there were far, far worse attempts.

Yes that label font definitely with a "Metal" look and feel about it!

I never knew Eddie Grant wrote ROUGH RIDER, nothing on the label:

http://www.45cat.com/record/fab40

...but he could only have been about 20 at the time and is it really his style of lyric and would it have been written by one so young? ...don't think so.

Yup - he did:



Along with three other 'Gees'!

You think it's written by "Scorcher", don't you? Wink

I've never listened to the Grant version of RR - I'll remedy that shortly. To be honest, I didn't know it existed until probably 20 years ago and always thought it was a cover version (but it must have pre-dated the Buster by at least a coupla months).

If anyone thinks, the Four Gees original is better. I want a dissertation, on my desk, by Friday, giving the evidence, as to why. Wink
