The Baron, In the Mood


Released on Sue WI 398 and “produced by Guy Stevens”, The identity of The Baron – and for that matter, the current whereabouts of his “pounding piano” are unknown. This recording is quite rare and a copy recently sold at auction for £39.

Did not chart.

  1. He was (is?) a London pub pianist. When I appeared on a Radio London show (Charlie Gillett?) which included a Sue Records tribute, and played this record, The Baron actually rang the studio to thank us.

  2. Hi Gents, to put your minds at ease, The Baron is London east end musician ‘Allen Ellett’ . He also played with Steve Marriott in his pre Small Faces group, ‘The Moments’. This came to light when John Hellier interviewed him a few years back regarding his work with Steve Marriott. Hope you are all well, Doug.
