MIDNIGHT HAPPENINS * CRAWFORD BROTHERS * VOGUE 9077 * GB

As far as I can tell the Crawford Brothers only had this one outing on Aladdin, it was issued on Aladdin 3375, and there is no other entry for them in McGrath, which could mean that it might be someone more well known 'diversifying'. The instrumental is a slow R&B with a fluid base and rolling drum opening, followed by a moaning sax and walking piano, I guess it would have sounded very Jazzy to British ears when it was issued there and is consequently a bit obscure.
