The Tempters - First Album (1968) Japan

    This band was formed in suburb near Tokyo by schoolers in 1965. At first they played covers on "The Ventures'" and "The Rolling Stones'" songs, performing them on discoteques and in clubs. In 1967 "The Tempters" signed a contract with "Spiduction" management (they have "The Spiders" on contract too). Up to June 1968 the band released 3 singles. And in that month their first album began selling in music stores. It consisted a lot of songs covers. But their second and other albums were written by themselves. There were no any songs covers.
    "The Tempters" disbanded in December 1970. This was due to not actual and not expedient reason to continue. Because the GS movement was living its last days. Then vocalist and drummer along with formere members of "The Spiders" and "The Tigers" formed band called "Pyg"

Fantastic Lady Jane....

Everyone who knows the blog "Old Melodies" or earlier "Wings of Dream" for many years,knows that there are large archives of music here since 2007 ... 98% of the links up to 2015 are dead. I will gradually be engaged in their recovery. This takes a very long time, so the answers to requests will be minimal and in no way will be accepted from anonymous users. I spend a very long time on my uploads. Please,find a couple of seconds to sign your comment or message. I hope for understanding...
