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...."

DAVE "BABY" CORTEZ DAVE "BABY" CORTEZ AND HIS HAPPY ORGAN

CLOCK RECORDS 1961                                             MG 60647-C

The Happy Organ
The song originally featured lyrics and was intended
to be sung accompanied by a piano and an organ.
Cortez recorded a vocal for it but was unhappy with
the result. He spotted an organ (a Hammond B3) in the
studio and decided to play the song's melody on it.
He also brought in legendary studio drummer,
Gary Hammond, to provide percussion. The guitar solo
is by session musician Wild Jimmy Spruill. Hearing an
organ on a rock or R&B song at the time was unusual,
but Cortez helped popularize its use outside of the jazz field.

tracks list:

A1 The Happy Organ 2:02
A2 It's A Sin To Tell A Lie 2:26
A3 Mardi Gras 2:28
A4 Deep In The Heart Of Texas 2:20
