I just came across the very first "South River Country", a rag reporting on the country music scene of London during the early 1970's.  Contributing writers.. Ian Franks.. editor, Mick Shepherd and Bill Neille.            
Some of the popular bands in London at that time, were "The Colin Hindmarsh Trio, The Kingpins,  The Jonny Young Four and of course, The Country Pie". It's sad that Jimmy Rose passed away in February of this year. He is missed.

Hi Phil,
Just found "By Request" by Jimmy Rose & The Country Pie (freaturing Phil Brooks" in a UK chaity Shop. Being a cuntry fan I thought why not?, so I bought it. I'm glad I did as it's an excellent album. How come I'd never heard of them before. I'll certainly be on the lookout for more online.

Sad to learn about Jimmy passing away last year.

Hi, Thanks for writing. I guess that album is an antique now. It was recorded I think, in 1970 at Philips Marble Arch Studios.
We all miss Jimmy. He was fun to be around and so talented, Philip
