Today I was listening to the first Specials album. Never disappoints ?

Something interesting from the Ryedale Festival. Declared interest; my dad was one of the festival's co-founders and I worked on it for 16 years. Now under different management, but still booking some intriguing performers.

I remember his version of the Ugly Duckling. It`s inextricably linked in my mind with the Goodies` Funky Gibbon which was a hit at the same time.

Yes, around April 1975. Moments and Whatnauts, Pans People...beautiful Babs...jumpers for goalposts. 

But If you listen to Funky Gibbon......it actually is quite funky.

Bill Oddie is seriously into music, and I think he'd been listening to Stevie Wonder when that record was created. That keyboard sound, especially.

Isaac Hayes and Huggy Bear are reading this and nodding in approval. That’s how funky it was.

What stopped me using the phrase "novelty records" was that Funky Gibbon is indeed a more than decent piece of music.

I like the Paul Williams(Temptations)-style baritone interjections from Graeme Garden.

Bill Oddie released records on Peel`s Dandelion label. Don`t normally check things, but I have been on Wiki to make sure I wasn`t imagining that.

Babs left along with Dee Dee later that year when the final version of Pan`s People was formed. That line-up didn`t last long, replaced by the unisex Ruby Flipper, who also didn`t last long, but did groove their way through the long hot 76 summer.

Huggy Bear 

Huggy Bear has to be the most unconvincing character in the history of TV. Not the actor, but the role. A jive-ass dude providing cops with "the word on the street" wouldn`t last 5 minutes in the real world.

Ruin my childhood why don’t you? 😆😆
 

Ruby Flipper were indeed the replacement for PP but I can’t remember any of their routines. Unlike PP 😎

I`d recommend their interpretations of Diana Ross - "Love Hangover". And Bee Gees - "You should be dancing". This latter routine predates John Travolta`s handling of the matter in Saturday Night Fever.

Both available on YouTube.
