any help with this would be appreciated – contact me)

Duane catalog numbers run consecutive with that of the Edmar label, which is why there are so many gaps in this discography. Edmar had many more releases than Duane, and tended to be calypso and steel band music, so I’ve chosen not to include those releases in this discography. It’s possible there are some Duane issues I haven’t included in this discography – if you find one please let me know.

Duane LP-1047 – The Savages – Live n’ Wild

Duane LP-1101/1102 – The Invaders – Spacing Out

Invaders Duane Records 45 Lost TimeThe Weads, the Savages and the Gents are all the great garage records. See my pages on the Savages and the Weads for more info on those bands.

The Gents included Andy Newmark, Glen Mello (I’m not sure if there’s any relation to Eddy DeMello) and drummer Frank Chiappa, and possibly Winston Cabral. The Gents is one band I’d love to know more about.

Spacing Out was reissued (legitimately?) on the Duane label and also booted on Baadasss Records. Originals etched Duane 1101-A/1101-B, with small “lw” in script and small stylized “sr”

Eddy DeMello owned the Duane Records (named for his son) and Edmar Records labels and operated out of the Music Box record store in Hamilton, Bermuda. Eddy passed away on March 6, 2013 (see Royal Gazette artlcle).

Note: No connection to another “duane” (all lower case letters on the labels) which had country releases by Roy Montague produced in Memphis, TN, and a good garage 45 from a Boise, Idaho band, Wm Penn & the Quakers: “Coming Up My Way” (Gerald D. Tucker) / Care Free (Lanny Gunther); produced by Gerrie Thompson.

Thanks to Steve Kahn for informing me about the Ebbtides release.

One thought on “Duane Records discography”

  1. Yes, Steve Kahn took a photo, at my house, of the Ebbtides on Duane Records. He never asked for my okay to post it anywhere, but that’s okay as I let someone have a tape of “Star Of Love” for a CD. It’s amazing that no other copies of this record has been found (as far as I know). I got it back in 1982. Eddie DeMello was contacted by someone looking for a copy of this Duane release, but he didn’t have it. I was offered $12,000.00 for it some 25 years ago and I don’t know who’s more stupid – the one who offered it or me for not accepting it! I only collect for the love of the music.
