Great song - I think the name of the band was 'The Left Handed Marriage'. A mate of mine leant me a CD with 3 or four of their tracks. I'll pop them on You sendit, and let you all see what you think!

Sorry to correct you, but that session on July 31st 1967 was at Regent Sound, not Abbey Road. How do I know ? I was there, playing bass guitar (and piano) as part of the Left Handed Marriage.

Anyway, it's good that people are listening to them even after 38 years.

So John, Bill Richards claims you guys were in Regent Sound July 28th - and you 31st. Was this a protracted three day session, or is Bill's memory starting to go?

Do you still have your "She Was Once My Friend" 7” edit acetate, or, has that too been lost to the passage of time?

John S Stuart,

Good resume, and most of it exactly right. May I point you to this article which might also help.

http://www.queenfans.com/articles/prequeen5.shtml.

On our Crazy Chain CD, Bill does say 31/7/67 so I don't know where July 28th came from - it was definitely the monday as it was the day after my 19th birthday on the sunday. Bill is a year older than me so his memory is probably going !

The last time I saw the "She Was Once My Friend" 7” edit acetate, was in about 1968. Bill had them all so he might still.

johnf: Thanks for the reply. My information came from personally interviewing Bill Richards, but, considering the event was the day after your 19th birthday, I guess that would be reason enough to sear it into your memory.

As for the article you mention
http://www.queenfans.com/articles/prequeen5.shtml.

It is actually plagerised from "Record Collector" magazine features - ironically - it was me who wrote them! (I notice also, that your letter of correction addressed to the magazine, is also included).

Unfortunately, one does not recieve a lot of credit (if any) when "re-published" on internet sites.

Glad that you enjoyed the article, and hope you enjoy your visits to "Queenzone".

John S. Stuart

John S. Stuart,

I enjoyed your reply - I didn't realize I was pointing you to your own article.

Just one thing to add to this forum. I haven't seen Brian since that session in 1967 - we all went our separate ways, mostly to different universities and we didn’t meet up again as a group. My memories of Brian are of a very talented and, I hate to say it, very nice boy. I thought I was quite good in 1967 – Brian was in a different class even then. I suppose my one claim to fame was showing him the correct chord in the Beatles ‘ No reply’ (G6 when he was playing a Gmaj7).

Johnf: "I suppose my one claim to fame was showing him the correct chord in the Beatles ‘ No reply’ (G6 when he was playing a Gmaj7)."

Thanks for that - I will add it to my bank of trivia. Who knows - you may even see that snippet in "print" someday - but I will make sure that you are credited - or better still, write it as IF it was a personal interview!

My e-mail address is available on this site, so if you ever feel the need to have "your story" told from your point of view - drop me a mail sometime!

johnf, may I ask which other songs did LHM use to reharse apart from No Reply? And if it´s not too much to ask, do recordings from such sessions exist(ed)? Not that I will ask you to share them, just to learn something else. :)
