DEAN FORD AND THE GAYLORDS - HE'S A GOOD FACE, BUT HE'S DOWN AND OUT


DEAN FORD AND THE GAYLORDS - 'He's A Good Face, But He's Down And Out'/'You Know It Too' (Columbia DB 7805) January 1966

They were saddled from the onset with an appalling name but I suppose the word 'gaylord' wasn't associated homosexuals like it is nowadays. That said, the group were from Glasgow and quite popular in Scotland during the early to mid 60s, appearing on some local TV Shows.

'He's A Good Face, But He's Down And Out' is a decent mod beat song with some pleasant harmonies but it flopped so the group relocated to London and changed their name to The Marmalade and enjoyed much success with square pop records, although their B-Sides were often classy psychedelic affairs.
