The Peddlers

Rose Marie


Rose Marie / I'm Not Afraid

This Peddlers curio predates the first official Peddlers single and features two songs written by Roy and Tab.  The record isn't in the Peddlers style and doesn't feature Roy Phillips on vocals and the trademark keyboards are nowhere to be heard either!  The vocalists actually sound suspiciously like the Dowland Brothers (see The Soundtracks on The Peddlers Connections page for more details).

The band's name at the time reflected their ambition to write songs for others to sing - maybe Joe Meek's artists would have been in line?  However, there was a definate shift in direction (and a change of name) in time for the next release.
