Retro Vinyl Finds: Russ Conway, Peter Sellers and Tolchard Evans


Three recent 45RPM finds from Newport included a Russ Conway EP (mentioned in Saturday's post) and two single releases from Peter Sellers and Tolchard Evans and his Singing Piano.

Russ Conway, Columbia Records
This Russ Conway EP appears to date from around 1967. A bit odd as the title track Always You And Me was released as a single in 1962.

Peter Sellers, Parlophone Records
Goon Show star Peter Sellers was very proactive releasing singles in the 1950s and 1960s. I'm So Ashamed was released in 1959, on the eve of the last regular Goon Show and Sellers conquering the cinema!

Tolchard Evans, Decca Records

Tolchard Evans and His Singing Piano's rendition of Singing piano was a popular instrumental track from the late 1950s. Evans rendition of Singing Piano featured a dreamy female chorus (or was that meant to be the piano?).
