He closed the year with what proved to be his defining Yesterdays Kisses - Marvin Rainwater - Yesterdays Kisses / Youre Not Happy (Vinyl), "Bad Boy," which he also wrote — a dark, threatening ballad, it oozed menace and mystery by the standards of its day, and it became Wilde's biggest single, even reaching the lower level of the charts in America, where it was released by Epic Records which had a licensing deal with Philips as a single and on an LP.
The Wild Cats were a story unto themselves — recruited intheir original lineup consisted of Big Jim Sullivan on lead guitar, Tex Makins on bass, Tony Belcher playing rhythm guitar, Alan LeClair at the piano, and Bobby Woodman on drums; they were noted for their wild, over-the-top stage act, and this worked for a few months before the lineup shifted.
Finally, with Sullivan and Belcher remaining, Brian "Licorice" Locking was brought in on bass, and Brian Bennett on the drums, and that quartet became the most famous version of the Wild Cats, and the lineup that backed Vincent and Cochran. Wilde was still at the top of his game when, while appearing at Birkenhead inhe was approached by a Liverpool singer-guitarist-songwriter named Ronald Wycherley, who was trying to get some original songs to Wilde and Parnes for their consideration.
Parnes was impressed with the songs and the playing, but also the good looks of the young man and his honest, easy charm; soon after Wycherley turned into Billy Furywho would ride the British charts for four years. And late that year, Wilde married Joyce Barker, a member of the singing group the Vernons Girls — they had their first child, Yesterdays Kisses - Marvin Rainwater - Yesterdays Kisses / Youre Not Happy (Vinyl), a year later.
By the end ofhowever, the moment had passed to Furyeven as Wilde continued to command the public's attention. Moon Mist - The Out Islanders 2. America the Beautiful from "Pollyanna" - Hayley Mills 3. To Tell the Truth - Bob Cobert 4. Jazzito from "Honey West" - Joseph Mullendore 5.

By aboutthey discontinued issuing albums. Early Sessions labels had the logo on top without other graphics. Labels were printed in various colors, e. A Canadian Sessions label is yellow with the same design far left.
The ARI series used a label with a blue field on the bottom, and a sunburst graphic on top. By the s, the Sessions label was brown, with the label name in yellow across the middle of the label.
Later in the s, a grey label with the label name in red above the center hole was used. Having recently bought new racks for my LPs I have been able to access them properly for the first time in a couple of years.
