Humpy Bong is the band Tim Staffell formed or joined when he left Smile so many years ago. The drummer is a former member of the Bee Gees (when the band was in fact more than just the brothers Gibb).

Check your history books for more info, but these two recordings, long out-of-print and digitized from a 45, are a long-forgotten little nugget of Queen history.

Hey! Thank You!

I never heard Humpy Bong after, very interesting. The voice sounds like Tim Staffel, but the style . . .

Smile were formed in 1968 by Brian and Tim. They advertised for a drummer and Roger got the postion. They were signed to Mercury Records (a sign of things to come?) in 1969 and went into the studio recording a number of songs, one of which was the USA only single Earth with Step On Me as the b-side. In 1982 a Japanese LP appeared with 6 Smile songs on. At first Brian and Roger denied it was their Smile, but upon hearing the songs confirmed it was them. Although the LP was released without their consent (Mercury held the copyright) no legal action was taken on their part.

In 1970 Smile were no more. Tim joined a band named Humpy Bong (formed by Robin Gibb of The Bee Gees).

Hey Tiger --

Thanks for posting that info; I didn't have it handy when I was doing this, my first ezshare post thing.

And John -- I do not have the Tailfeathers. I have Morgan and am trying to get a couple other pieces of Staffellenia, but not that. Have you posted this?

As far as one version of Staffell doing Earth, it's actually officially released on a Morgan album. It's sort of difficult for those who want to listen to just that, since it's part of a suite of songs (remember those, fellow prog rock fans?). It is worth a listen, however, since according to Staffell it's the most faithful version of his song.

Humpy Bong were NOT formed by Robin Gibb. It was former Bee Gee's drummer Colin Peterson.

This is the BEST Staffel history site, IMHO:

John, are you still looking for a copy of that single? I know someone in Russia who owns two copies of the single, who's offered to sell me the 2nd copy.

Anyways, I have a FLAC upgrade forthcoming very soon for the Humpy Bong single folks, having acquired and received a copy very recently :-)

And as promised: http://www.mediafire.com/?c92rc1p0viv82

Enjoy!

PS. There is a version marked 'Fixed', which had some heavy pop/clicks at the start of both sides (owing to extra vinyl blob present on the disc!) reduced as much as possible using Adobe Audition 1.5's tools
