Revolver (Some Other Guy Single)

   If you've followed this blog for any period of time, you may have figured out by now that I have a soft spot for Beatlesque, or 60's British Invasion sounding Bands. Here's another record in that vein to add to the list. I couldn't find any info at all on these guys, which is funny since there's a quote on the back of the sleeve calling Revolver, "The Biggest, Hottest, Property in the history of American show business". I found one band with the same name, from the same period out of Cleveland and a more recent one out of California; neither of which appear associated with these guys. At any rate what we have here is a solid two sider, consisting of two covers that were part of The Beatles  live repertoire around 1962-63. Some other Guy was originally written and released as a single by Richie Barrett in 1962 and I'm gonna sit right down and cry over you was written in 1953 by Joe Thomas and Howard Biggs. It looks like these guys may have been from Sierra Madre, CA and drummer Rolo Sandoval has been associated with other Beatles tribute acts, but that's all I have.

Line Up -

Mark Estes - Rhythm Guitar
Howard Lea - Lead Guitar
Jim Wootten - Bass
Rolo Sandoval - Drums

Hi Graeme, I remember when Bruce posted that one. I'm sure if you start hunting there's probably several more bands named Revolver. I didn't dig to deeply into it, I was only looking for these guys. Thanks for the comment.
