Bass Guitarist/vocalist in The Quiet Five until
1968 (see The Quite Five ‘When The Morning Sun Dries The Dew’ RPM308)
Richard Barnes became known for possessing a Lou Christie rivalling
vocal range, and epic singing style. Manager Gerry Bron partnered Barnes
to his published writer Tony Hazard to help produce song demos- which
they did for: Manfred Mann, The Hollies, The Tremeloes, Hermans Hermits,
Lulu, Gene Pitney, Andy Williams and Cliff Richard (see also ‘Tony
Hazard Sing Tony Hazard’ Rev-Ola CRREV190).Barnes then recorded 7
singles and 1 LP (UK and US alt. version), produced by Bron, and all
released through Philips. His 3rd single ‘Take To The Mountains’ hit the
top 40 in the UK. Several singles, all penned by Hazard made the charts
in France, Holland , Luxembourg, Belgium, Germany, Spain, and even a
no. 1 in The Lebanon !Our ‘Take To The Mountains’ album is a
combination of the US and UK Lps, the singles and unreleased tracks. The
track ‘Tomorrow Never Comes’ is anabsolute standout. It has soul, hits
every octave, sweeps along pulling the emotional heartstrings (in modern
terms akin to David MacAlmont).
