Ivor Biggun's insight:

TONY MIDDLETON has something of a cult following on the Rare/Northern Soul scene via several excellent dancers. Paris Blues was recorded for Bell (1776, Broadway, New York) subsidiary record label, Mala in 1966. This autobiographical number concerned Tony’s down-and-out stay in the French capitol in the early 60′s. Enormously popular in 1976, ‘Paris Blues” still commands a high price today for this big city style production by Claus Ogerman, particularly on original blue issue copy. Equally popular, is the dramatic recording and pounding version of an old Nat ‘King’ Cole number ‘To the Ends of the Earth’ (US MGM and for an even rarer release, on UK Polydor records 1966). Other recordings sought after by soul collectors include; Spanish Maiden (Speed and Storm 1969) My Home Town (Alpha 1962) You Spoiled My Reputation (ABC Paramount 1965) My Little Red Book (US Kapp and UK London 1965) Middleton was born June 26, 1934. in Richmond, Virginia. In the mid-1950′s, Middleton moved to New York with his mother. He surpassed others with his skills in various sports and started to box as an amateur in his late 20′s. He began his singing career in the Dovers and then joined the 5 Willows in 1952, becoming their lead singer as the group changed their name to the Willows. In 1958 he went solo, however with several songs recorded on a variety of different labels, he still could not produce a hit song and decided to move to Paris in 1962

The Foundations - Baby, Now That I've Found You

CHORUS Baby, now that I've found you I can't let you go I'll build my world around you I need you so Baby, even though you don't need me You don't need me. R...
Ivor Biggun's insight:

he Foundations were a British soul band, active from 1967 to 1970. The group, made up of West Indians, White British, and a Sri Lankan, are best known for their two biggest hits, "Baby Now That I've Found You" (a Number One hit in the UK Singles Chart and Canada, and subsequently Top 10 in the US), written by Tony Macaulay and John MacLeod; and "Build Me Up Buttercup" (a number 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 and number 1 in Canada), co-written by Macaulay with Mike d'Abo, at the time the lead vocalist with Manfred Mann. The group was the first multi-racial group to have a number 1 hit in the UK in the 1960s.[1]

The Foundations are notable for being one of the few label acts to successfully imitate what became known as the Motown Sound. In terms of line-up and musical style, they anticipated the sound of the more successful Hot Chocolate. They were in a similar musical vein as Love Affair, who also topped the UK charts in 1968 with their version of Robert Knight's "Everlasting Love". The Foundations signed to Pye, at the time one of only four big UK record companies (the others being EMI with its HMV, Columbia Records, and Parlophone labels; Decca; and Philips who also owned Fontana).[2]
