CANTELOPE ROCK * JOE JOE BENNETT AND THE FUGITIVES * DOCTOR BIRD 1097 * UK
Joe Joe Bennett singer and cornet player cut this Rock Steady instrumental with his band the Fugitives and a female chorus. It's not certain what the 'Cantelope' referred to in the title is, possibly it's a misspelling of Cantaloup which the Shorter Oxford Dictionary refers to as; "a former country seat of the Pope near Rome, where, on its introduction from Armenia, it was first grown.] A small round ribbed variety of musk-melon."
