(CD cover)

That's My Story:
Words & Music by Tim Rice & Friends

In the 1960s, before he made his name with musicals such as Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat and Jesus Christ Superstar, Tim Rice had written and produced of a long list of lesser-known records. The best of these from 1965-69 are gathered on this CD, among them a track by The Nocturnes, Wish You Would Show Me Your Mind.

In his sleeve notes Tim Rice wrote: "The Nocturnes were a 6-piece Mamas and Papas-type vocal group who included future New Seekers Lyn Paul and Eve Graham. David Paramor, (Norrie's nephew), their producer at EMI, asked me to supply lyrics to his tunes for two of the group's B-sides ... We used the writing pseudonyms of David Dapp and Gerrard Portslade as EMI were not enthusiastic about any employee earning more than their basic wage. They need not have worried."

Tracks: The Nightshift, That's My Story | The Shell, Goodbye Little Girl | The Shell, A Little Bit Of Lovin' | The Shell, You've Been Cheatin' | Murray Head, Someday Soon | Murray Head, You Bore Me | The Nocturnes, Wish You Would Show Me Your Mind | Ross Hannaman, Down Thru' Summer | Ross Hannaman, I'll Give All My Love To Southend | Tales Of Justine, Albert | Tales Of Justine, Monday Morning | Danièle Noel, Daniele | Ross Hannaman, 1969 | Ross Hannaman, Probably On Thursday | Sacha Distel, Believe Me I Will | Just Plain Smith, February's Child | Just Plain Smith, Don't Open Your Mind | The Mixed Bag, Million Dollar Bash | The Power Pack, Juliet Simpkins | Emperor Rosko, The Opposite Lock
