WONDERFUL WONDERFUL – (Original by Johnny Mathis)People – (From Funny Girl musical)
The Tymes released two excellent tracks popular by the soul crowd in Manchester in the sixties: So Much In Love and Wonderful, Wonderful. These original hits from the Tymes were recorded on the Philadelphia based Cameo Parkway Label and were very successful for the group. Their close harmony sound was typical of the Philly Sound phenomena.
WHAT WOULD I DO – one of their early 45’s with lead singer George Williams gets to position 481 on Kev Roberts Top 500. Its brilliant and one we entirely missed on the first Soul scene in Manchester!
Years later they re-formed, (1968) on Direction Records with a massive new hit People
And again later with You little Trust Maker and Miss Grace in 1974.
