  1. What you may not realise is, that at my request, Peter Shelley wrote two songs for Alvin that Michael Levy refused to go with, hence I suggested Peter record them himself of send ’em to Bobby Goldsboro who would have hits with them, the songs were ‘Gee Baby’ and ‘Love Me Love My Dog’, the first of which charted at 5 or 6, the second went to No-3.
    Roger Greenaway wrote one rather special song for Alvin which again Levy refused to allow him to record, hence Roger recorded it with The Drifters, the song was ‘More Than A Number In My Little Red Book’ which charter at 6….although I believe Alvin’s version was far better.
    If you want more true info on Alvin try my book ‘Cook’s Tours’ which is available c/o Amazon UK.
