Envy (In Tour Eyes)

As is quite normal for this slot I know very little about The Orlons. What I do know is that they were a quartet who were active from 1960 to 1967 when they recorded mainly for Cameo Parkway. Envy was the flip side of No Love But Your Love released in 1965. I am not sure why this is the only single I own as both tracks are excellent slabs of soul. I think that I may have to dig deeper.

Drew, if you want to hear some more of the Orlons, have a listen to Don't Hang Up, South Street, Crossfire and their original version of Don't throw your love away, which was covered by the Searchers, who had the hit with it here in the UK.
Originally a 3 girls & 1 boy group, the were down to the three girls only by '63/64, around which time I was lucky enough to see them perform when they undertook a club tour of the UK.
I think that their is a CD available containing most of their Cameo recordings.
