K.W. Winston –Slow Rock

K.W. Winston –Don’t Ask Me/ Slow Rock –Sonopresse –AB 46900 (1974 French issue)
Found on the flip of the inconsequential Don’t Ask Me , Slow Rock is a fine sturdy instrumental that doesn’t have much purpose except to chug along in a tough fashion. There’s a drum break, for those who like that kind of thing, ¾ of the way through, but it doesn’t detract too much for the simple and single minded approach. Both sides are written by Jeremy Paul and Paul Lynton, who apart from credits on countless 70s stuff, were also the guys behind Hector’s Bye Bye Bad Days. Paul Lynton also wrote Wired Up and produced both Hector singles.
Stop Press: There was indeed a Hector connection! The same track was worked on by Hector as the unreleased One Ton Racer

There's definitely a Don Powell quasi-military drum-thing happening here.

I immediately don't like this one cos the sleeve's reminding me of a Dolby's Cube single, and I resent that.

That's heavy! I love it :)

I can't find anything on discogs about K.W Winston though, is there another names he uses?

I see a mint copy for €17, and a VG+ for €9, on
