THE PLEBS - BABE I'M GONNA LEAVE YOU



THE PLEBS - "Babe I'm Gonna Leave You" / "Bad Blood" (MGM K13320) October 1964

The Plebs were briefly discussed the other day in another thread and I got curious to find out more about them especially since I've had their single on MGM for several years. MGM was their USA label and it got a release February 1965.

The single came out in Britain during October 1964 on Decca records. Probably easier to find the MGM release!
By the way, producer Mark Wildey who produced The Plebs also worked with The Attack and The Fairytale.
 
As far as I know the Plebs were:

Derek Sirmon (drums)
Terry Crowe (vocals) *
Mick Dunford (guitar) * (went onto Renaissance)
Danny McCulloch (bass) * (went onto Eric Burdon & the Animals)
Chris Dennis (keyboards)

* now deceased


The Association recorded "Babe I'm Gonna Leave You" for their debut single.... more of a moody folk-rock take and nothing like their usual vocal harmony pop tunes, and of course Led Zeppelin in 1969 - on their first album. Quicksilver Messenger Service also recorded a version for the Revolution soundtrack.

Bass guitarist for The Plebs was Danny McCulloch who was previously a member of Screaming Lord Sutch & The Savages. Afterwards he teamed up with Eric Burdon and became his bassist in the new Animals.... Sadly, Danny died a few months ago (January 29th 2015)....
