Sweet Magic / Connie – 1966
My Turn / I Need A Helping Hand – 1967
The Servicemen released the above tracks before disappearing off the music radar. Presumably they were in uniform, hopefully they weren’t injured in action. The Blue Note DJ Dave Lomas obtained Sweet Magic on import and was sure that The Servicemen were The Essex – another military singing group but no one knows for sure!
Certainly did Doo Wop “My Turn” in 67′
The Northern scene certainly liked this group and Kev Roberts puts their “Need A Helping Hand” at 316 on his Top 500 of Northern Soul.
