Watermarked image. UK - Stateside - Dweezy's Lost 45s: - Records - List by gungadweezy. DeadWax 22nd Oct Thanks Deadwax, The more I look at this the weirder it gets. You're probably right about The Roadsters being a studio group. The Del-Aires perform "Drag"and five other tracks, in the filml. Curious that 1. The 20th Fox single makes no mention of the film which I'd have expected them to do. The Del-Aires version of "Drag" does mention the film but it looks like the Decca single may be a different version to the one used in the film.
I hadn't realised that the Del-Aires previous single has both sides performed by the group in Joy Ride - The Roadsters - Joy Ride film but again apparently not the versions used in the film. Welcome to the murky world of movie soundtracks and their related vinyl releases. Norton Records, run by the team behind Kicks magazine, issued a full Del-Aires album. If anybody's got that it probably explains the whole history. It would be interesting to get to the bottom of this one but in the mantime I'll make The Roadsters a "see also" instead of a pseudonym of William (Remix) - ManMadeMan - The Legend Remixes Del-Aires.
DeadWax 21st Oct But I get the impression from the informative Kicks article on The Del-Aires published in Kicks 7 that is a different band : The Roadsters also cut Drag for 20th Century Fox, although their version Is tons inferior. There is also the possibility of a studio band assembled by Bill Holcombe musical director of Horror Of Party Beach recording two tracks from the movie. Kramer throughout. In it was operating from West 58th Street.
I'm pretty sure it's just a pseudonym for The Del-Aires. The Del-Aires were signed to Coral at the time so it was probably a way to get around contract Joy Ride - The Roadsters - Joy Ride when they were working on the "Horror of Party Beach" movie.
