“It’s now 40 years since Dave Berry’s ‘ eponymous debut album was released and it resounds with the distinctive vocal style still sustaining him today as a cornerstone of the Sixties performing scene. Of course this is most obviously the case with ‘The Crying Game’, the extraordinary recording which introduced the wounded, vulnerable delivery that became a Berry trade mark. Ethereal and chillingly haunting, the song was a high-quality add­ition to the 1964 singles charts, and proves a devastatingly powerful opener to a CD comprising two original Dave Berry LPs.
That first album also included a rendition of ‘ Memphis Tennessee’ – the number written by his namesake Chuck, which had brought him a first minor hit the previous year. But you can visualise Dave’s moody stage charisma seeping from the grooves as he confidently dips his brush into an extensive palette and daubs the canvas with a colourful mix of contemporary material.
There are examples of the same kind of r’n’b as his Decca label-mates the Rolling Stones were tackling at the same time but elements of folk, country and skiffle-blues are among other diversities.
A crucial role is played by session guitarists Big Jim Sullivan and Jimmy Page, each of them shining with an inventive display of technical wizardry. ‘One Dozen Berrys’ was released in 1966 after he had become a well established figure in the pop currency of international record sales, live shows and TV appearances and the LP duly rein­forced his evident popularity. ‘I’ve Got My Tears To Remind Me’ a song written by Jackie DeShannon and Jimmy Page showcases Dave at his melodramatic best. With other tracks having been drawn from a variety of sources, including Chuck Berry again, Bobby Goldsboro and Burt Bacharach-Hal David ( Berry’s hit ‘Baby It’s You), an­other wide sweep in content and approach is assured from the outset”.

“More than fifty years after their break-up, The Roulettes more than deserve their own catalogue number in the Sixties Pop Library, if only for such gems as ‘Bad Time’ and ‘The Long Cigarette’ or self-written funky b-sides like ‘Junk’ and ‘Jackpot’. Providing a back-bone to Adam Faith , they were on par with The Shadows. Last but not least, their impressive musical curriculum encompasses the likes of Chris Andrews, The Shadows, Unit 4+2, The Kinks, Argent and French superstar Richard Anthony, not to mention their Cheshunt Connection comprising Cliff Richard, Cliff’s friend Dave Sampson, The Hunters, The Royal Parker Five and Buster Meikle’s Daybreakers.
All four Roulettes of the definite line-up formed in May 1963 still meet on a regular basis and I  was invited to join guitarist Peter Thorp, drummer Bob Henrit, bassist John ‘Mod’ Rogan and guitarist–keyboardist Russ Ballard to reflect on their story and to set the record straight”. © Eddy Bonte & Shindig
