Eugene Ferris

Planet PLF 112 - "There Was A Smile In Your Eyes" c/w "Soft Moonlight"
May 1966

     Keeping very odd company on Shel Talmy's Planet label was Eugene B. Ferris, "The Singing Hotelier", proprietor of Lockerbie House Hotel, close to Lockerbie (a small town sadly known for the wrong reasons) in Dumfrieshire, Scotland. The single came (unusually at the time) in a picture sleeve with the grinning picture of tweed-clad Mr. Ferris and his hotel in the background, whilst the blurb on the rear extolled the virtues of the 50 bedroom establishment. Clearly somebody did a great favour to get this record issued, which although very hard-to-find and collectable, in musical terms is probably without merit.
