SIMON SCOTT with the LEROYS - MOVE IT BABY



SIMON SCOTT with the LEROYS - 'Move It Baby' / 'What Kind Of Woman' (Parlophone R 5164) July 1964

This hard driving beat disc is a recent purchase, I had never even heard it until last month when someone recommended it to me. I have spent some time diggin' on the internet and found an informative page about Simon Scott here.

Simon Scott was Managed by future Bee Gees boss Robert Stigwood and it seems that the latter had big hopes for his star find. Simon had the looks, voice and a forceful beat backing group in The LeRoys to succeed and their first single "Move It Baby" was a terrific debut. It reached the Top #40 in the British Charts but deserved to go so much higher.

Their next 45 "My Baby's Got Soul" flopped badly and Simon Scott drifted back into obscurity.
