I am fortunate in being able to bring you 2 previously unseen photographs of the High Wycombe band 'Respect' whose acetate Santa Lucia I previously posted and which you can now hear along with four Respect compositions on Psychedelic Schlemiels 4 (Wooden Hill).
Many thanks to original band member Paul Russell for sending me these and granting me permission to publish them here. Regarding the photographs and origination of the band, Paul says:-
"My role in the band was nothing extraordinary, I was as suggested previously and original co-founder with Blackie, and co-writer of 'Nothing' I played mainly rhythm guitar when Mick joined the band as he was a little more versatile than I so he was appointed Lead guitarist, I sang lead vocals on a couple of songs one namely 'All or Nothing' the superb Small Faces hit and Mick and I sang BV's on most others, apart from this my role nothing too noteworthy. I played many of the High Wycombe Town Hall functions as support act to the named artists of the day, Small Faces, Geno Washington & Ram Jam Band, The Move, The Who I believe from memory and a fair few others that escape me at present..."
