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...."

JESSE BUTLER MEMPHIS SOUL

PHILIPS RECORDS 1967                               PHS 600-245 


     in 1961-1962, Dutch Company Philips signed an exchange agreement 
with Mercury (and subsequently Philips bought Mercury). 
This Philips Series were introduced in the U.S. in that period.
Although some of the titles are U.S. releases of original 
Dutch (and other European) Philips recordings, many titles 
are also original U.S. recordings, so we can regard this
 series as one of the subsidiary labels of Mercury Records.
 As a matter of fact, there are some recordings which
 was originally planned to be released under EmArcy 
or Mercury, but transfered to this Philips label. And there 
is even an interesting example which was originally
 planned to be released under Philips label,
 but transfered to Limelight label. 

   Catalogue numbers for this series have PHM 
(Monaural) and PHS (Stereo) prefix. 

unfortunately I have no information
 on musicians and recording sessions     

tracks list:

A1    Memphis After Hours        
A2    Last Night        
A3    My Baby Loves Me
