King Dave or Dave Gordon (from group 'King Dave & The Rebels') was born in British Guiana on August 13, 1933. His baptismal name Neville Gordon; studied at the Free School Church of the England School and participated in the choir of the Anglican Church of Christ, both in the country where he was born. He won a freshman contest at age 19 and signed a one-year contract at Georgetown Radio. Later, the idea came up that the best singers from British Guiana formed a vocal ensemble: 'The Four Lords', who arrived in Brazil on tour in 1959. In 1963 group make LP 'King Dave & The Rebels" on Brazil label 'Cartaz'. The group disbanded after the performances in São Paulo and Rio with Brazilian musicians. 
The album "Twist, Hully Gully & Surfin '" was released in 1965 by the label 'Imperial' - the one that was sold by the door-to-door system in the cities of São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro by the entrepreneur André Midani. 'Imperial' was a budget label in Brazil, and it was common for the label to assemble studio musicians to put out records based on what was "hot" with the young crowd. 


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...
