Christ! How did you get that?
Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

I was a teenage keener in the mid-60s. Actually own both those records. Didn't remember Boots being a number one in the USA, though.

Also the use of the word 'relatively' in the clue about the duo

I quite like the idea of Boulez playing with the Piltdown Men and arranging the strings on Dirty Water, but it is not he

:oops:

I mistook the Four Preps for the Fab Four (thought it was some kind of nickname). Then I googled "The Four Preps" to see if this was a good thought. It wasn't. I did it on reflex. Needless to say I saw that that would me bar from competing for this round. I saw the correct answer.

I'll only say it's a devilishly smart question.

No, although it's an enchanting prospect again to imagine him, candelabraed to the max, playing with the Piltdowns or Standells.

Oh, he was involved musically with them all on one or some of their records. Should have made that clear.

Name the Decca Records (UK) exec who signed The Rolling Stones, The Zombies, The Moody Blues, Them, Tom Jones, and Small Faces to the label - and tell us what he is much better remembered for.
