A random selection of Sixties sounds from my 45's and LP's.
S.P.Q.R. is an acronym for a Latinphrase that translates into Englishas "The Senate and people of Rome"- it was the Roman Empire's equivalent to O.H.M.S.SPQR was the sister label to Legrand Records, home of all thoseearly sixties hits by Gary U.S.Bonds. Label owner / ProducerFrank Guida was of Italian extraction, I'd guess using SPQRwas a nod to his family's originalhome.Can't tell you anything about SonnyYoung other than that, like all ofFrank Guida's artists, was probably from the Norfolk,VA areaas that was where LeGran/SPQR werebased. It's Young's only known release and dates from late '64.Davie
Side A is a good song :)You put it twice, instead of the B side.Thank you.
She Tore... is totally weird and unique - great!!
Oh, and same problem as the Terry Haynes post - same song posted twice.
S.P.Q.R.= Sound Proof Quality Records wiMa
Weird that SPQR utilized the same background on the label that some US Deram, Press and Parrot pressings used.
Sonny Young was the nom de pop I used as a DJ and ended up as the artist name on this record, the only one I recorded for Frank Guida. At the time I was a song writer at Rockmaster, umbrella for SPQR and other Roman-themed labels.SPQR is the abbreviation for the Latin, Senate and Citizens of Rome, emblem of the Roman Empire.
