Post 577 - The Studs - The New Studs Album

In 1977 Silver Studs Lance Reynolds and Gino Latorre continued as a duo, renaming themselves simply The Studs (and recruiting a new backing band). The debut single from The Studs was Funky Feet which reached Number 13 in October 1977. The duo completed an album which did not see the light of day until November 1978 and followed two more singles, Today I Met The Girl I’m Gonna Marry and Dr Bop. However The Studs only sang on side one with Stud front man Gino Latorre singing solo on side two, which featured his single “Crazy Lover”. The album was produced by Tony Hogarth at Trafalgar Studios, Sydney and Larrabee Studios Los Angeles between May 1977 and July 1978. Musicians included on this album were Tony Ansell, Stephen Murphy, Greg Lyons, Jim Kelly, James Taylor, Terry Young, Col Loughnan, Clydie King, Terry & Mona Lisa and Stephen Hopes. mp3

Thanks for this link, I have been trying to locate a copy of this LP due to the version of 'Make a Promise' which like 'Dr Bop' was penned by Bruce Woolley.It was released around Europe under the band name 'Fallen Angel & the TC Band'.
