Rolly "Yo Yo" Daniels


As about as obscure a record as you can get. On an equally obscure record label from the 60's I imagine. No mention of Rolly "Yo Yo" Daniels on the internet. Any information regarding this artist or his backing band " The Daybreakers" and Don Rendell most welcome.

Could it be this Don Rendell playing the saxaphone on this record I wonder?

I think he made a record called 'TAKE A LESSON FROM YOUR TEACHER' in 1962

Here's the 45 rpm single. It was simply called 'THE TEACHER'. My first group was Buddy Dean & The Teachers and this was our opening 'theme tune'. A ticket from our gig at the Tower in 1962 with The Beatles went for just uner $5000 recently on an online auction. The Beatles pulled out and we did their spot. (HA.com)

Roly Daniels is an Irish Singer. Rolly Yo-Yo Daniels is an American singer (I think)
