Kingston Jukebox is doing me right tonight. Even dropping R Stewart in there!

Hearing the "Ain't No Love In the Heart of the City" tune now - who is this?? Is this really a Whitesnake cover?!? LOL, I'm thinking it must be an older song - but whatever - it works very well!

Hmm - just found yet ANOTHER version by Al Brown that sounds a bit more like what I'm used to - but I like the rootical/dj mix a lot better. Is that Mikey Dread? My quest continues...

John, I was told long ago that the harmonica player on Millie Small's "My Boy Lollipop" was Rod Stewart. Maybe Penny can shed some light on that.

No Stamina, apparently Pete Hogman played harmonica on 'Lollipop'. Or pethaps not!


"In 1964, The Five Dimensions were hired to provide backing for Jamaican singer Millie Small on her hit recording of My Boy Lollipop. It has long been thought Rod Stewart played harmonica on the record - a story he has since denied, but according to guitarist Kenny White, it was occasional band member Pete Hogman who played on the session. Pete apparently looked very much like Rod in appearance so it's likely that Millie Small's manager Chris Blackwell (who also managed Birmingham's Spencer Davis Group) was mistaken in identifying him.

Other sources have also claimed John "Junior" Wood of the Jeff Beck Group as being the likely contender. According to Jimmy Powell though, none of the above stories are correct. "I played harmonica on My Boy Lollipop and Mike Carroll did the clapping" says Jimmy."
