The Diamond Males were a quintet formed around the island of Gibraltar by Albert Hammond (guitar, vocals), Richard Cartwright (guitar, vocals), Leslie Hammond (sax), Luis Balloqui (bass), and Luis Vinet (drums). Their audio was heavily affected by such American functions as the Everly Brothers and Dion & the Belmonts, and English performers such as for example Johnny Kidd & the Pirates and Cliff Richard & the Shadows. They documented for United kingdom Parlophone and Spanish RCA. Their Parlophone one “New Orleans” b/w “Fool in Appreciate” was made up of two early first tracks by Albert Hammond. They split up in the beginning of the 1960s. Both edges of that one later surfaced for the music publisher’s sampler THE COUNTLESS Noises of Albert Hammond.
