WHERE IS THE PARTY * JOHNNY AND THE EXPRESSIONS * JOSIE 946 * USA
It was the groups first release of three records on the New York based Josie label, prior to singing as Johnny And The Expressions Texas born Johnny (Wyatt) was a member of Rochell and the Candles. Where Is The Party is an mid-tempo dance cut that was little known in London at the time, but has the sort of esoteric sound that was very fashionable with Mods in the Discothèques in the early to mid sixties. It's the sort of sound that is instantly recognisable as not being popular with non-Soul fans and highly unlikely ever to have found its way onto the British Pop charts (there were no British Rock bands copying this sound) therefore ideal for those Mods with refined or elitist, not to say snobby, musical tastes.
