Gulliver with Daryl Hall
In 1968, Tom Sellers was working for John Madara's company, and he brought Daryl in to listen to. John really liked him a lot. So Daryl became part of the office band -- Daryl on keyboards and guitar, Jim Helmer on drums, Tom Sellers on bass and keyboards and Tim Moore Moore on guitar. The band would eventually become the group, Gulliver.
After recording one album, the guys went their separate ways. Daryl hooked up with John Oates and John took them into the studio and recorded many sides with them. Hall and Oates remain today the biggest selling duo in the history of the music business. Tom Sellers went on to arrange, among others, "The Overture To Tommy," "Keem-o-Sabe," "Rhinestone Cowboy" and "Rock The Boat." Tim Moore recorded five albums. A song from his first album, "Second Avenue," was recorded by Artie Garfunkle. It reached No. 34 on the charts. His best-known song in the U.S., "Rock and Roll Love Letter," was a hit for the Bay City Rollers.
"Rolls Mama," has never been released until now. Daryl Hall and Tim Moore do the vocals, with Tim Moore writing the song.
The CD is presented by songwriter/record producer, John Madara, through That Philly Sound, which is dedicated to the music that came out of Philadelphia during the 50s and 60s. John co-wrote and co-produced such timeless classics as AT THE HOP (Danny and The Juniors), ROCK AND ROLL IS HERE TO STAY (Producer, Danny and The Juniors), THE FLY (Chubby Checker), 123 (Len Barry, who co-wrote the song with Madara and White) and YOU DON'T OWN ME (Lesley Gore). These and countless other hit records helped to make up "The Sound of Philadelphia."
