FOGG - Just Like Me

FOGG - Water In My Wine / Just Like Me (EMI 1974) 
First single from Newcastle outfit Fogg, who released about five singles and one LP between 1974 and 1975 and who's line-up included Derek Rootham (who joined Geordie in 1978), David Robson, Chris McPherson and Robert Porteous. "Just Like Me" is a high-energy rocker that can really make you stomp your feet! Produced by Ian McLintock, UK pressing.

 BLACKFOOT SUE - You Need Love / Tobago Rose (DJM 1974)
Here's the fifth single by Birmingham outfit Blackfoot Sue, a band formed by twin brothers Tom and David Farmer and Eddie Golga in 1970, who reached number 4 in the UK Singles Chart with the great "Standing In The Road". "You Need Love" is a superb powerful glam rock tune with a great melody, rough guitar and handclaps. UK issue, produced by Noel Walker.

CHERRY - Mommy's Little Baby

CHERRY - Mommy's Little Baby / We'Re Gonna Move It Up (Barclay 1975)
Belgian issue of this cool single released by obscure band Cherry.
Both sides are good but my favourite is "Mommy's Little Baby", a groovy T-Rex-style number produced by Keith Bonsoir who was also behind the fuzzed-up Bear Brothers's "Bondiago" and Bo-Jangles' "Run For Your Life". Enjoy!
