read an article on a post Bob Stanley on Guardian

"In the summer, the scene would move en masse to Ostend, Belgium's equivalent to Blackpool. DJ Freddy Cousaert played at the Groove, a late night downstairs bar frequented by US marines, tourists and prostitutes – it was Cousaert who later looked after Marvin Gaye during his 80s sejourn in Ostend. The music he played at the Groove included ska, Latin jazz and even Broadway songs such as Stranger in Paradise, or Whatever Lola Wants from Damn Yankees...."

DOV COVAY & THE GOODTIMERS MERCY!

ATLANTIC RECORDS 1964                             SD8104 


 (wikipedia)
His debut single there with the Goodtimers, "Mercy Mercy"
 (accompanied by a young Jimi Hendrix on guitar),
 established his earthy bluesy style. Atlantic bought his contract,
 but, while several R&B hits followed, it was a year before
 Covay returned to the pop chart. "See Saw", co-written with
 Steve Cropper and recorded at Stax, paved the way for more hit
