    I have a beautiful album by mid sixties 'Easy' group: Sounds Orchestral-some maybe remember the smash 'Cast Your Fate To The Wind' but this album 'The Soul Of' has an outstanding track called 'A Letter Edged In Black' astonishingly not on any CD out there. Johnny Pearson on piano and beautiful strings-it is very moving. I have it on the Piccadilly label, and in (stereo) too about a 1965 release.

    Piccadilly Lp's from that period were superbly recorded, a subsidiary of the Pye label. Have any other members heard Sounds Orchestral recordings? Best B.

    I picked my vinyl copy up on import on the Marble Arch label. At one time 'Heartbeat' hammered the opening bars to 'Cast Your Fate To The Wind' to death. Probably still does!

    There is one or two tracks played out on the mod scene, one is Rinky Dink (Columbia 1964) and others include Marvin Gaye's Ain't That Peculiar and Soul Coaxing both on the Piccadilly label

    Excellent! Was Marble Arch copy in stereo? It wasn't uncommon for Pye/Piccadilly mid-sixties Lp's to have mono ref #'s but, the occasional stereo copy was inside!

    And the late, great, Kenny Clare on drums.

    Yes!





    After Johnny's haunting single note piano keys in the intro-then comes in the rich and booming strings-and yes those drums-I swear I've never heard a more moving instrumental track!

    Yes it's got a big bold stereo on the cover.
