Related: Chimes, Creoles

Formed by members of The Chimes (The Creoles) and The Rik-a-Tiks in 1965, Paul & The Deep Set released a version of 'The House With The Whitewashed Gable' at the same time as Joe Dolan & The Drifters. The Neil Levinson song was originally called '221 East Maple' and new lyrics were penned by Greenbeats manager Kevin Dunne to suit the Irish market. The line-up included Philip O'Duffy, Gerry Higgins, Willie Lynch, Lesley O'Neill and Paul Butler. They also released the Don Everly song 'Hello Amy' the A side in Ireland, with 'That's The way Life Goes' the A side in Britain. ~ by Willie Lynch with additional material by John Warburg
