“Shotgun wedding” by Roy C was seen as such a likely hit, it was put out on the main Island label, on WI 273; it was indeed a hit, but ended up back at the Sue label on the album This is Sue (issued with Island labels). Roy Charles Hammond was born on August 3, 1939 and is still alive. Hammond had served in the US forces and used money he had saved during his service to finance the track’s production. The recording was made in 1965 and was released in the UK on WI 273 in 1966.
