Biography

There are more than one band with this name:

1) The Flames was a musical group from Durban in South Africa. The band was originally formed in 1963 by guitarist Steve Fataar, bassist Brother Fataar (real name Edries Fataar), drummer George Faber and guitarist Eugene Champion. However this line-up would only be together to record a couple of songs. Ricky Fataar replaced George Faber as the band’s drummer around 1964 and Edries Fredericks replaced Eugene Champion as the guitarist. Baby Duval briefly replaced Edries Fredericks in 1967 although it is unclear whether he was involved in any of the recordings that were released. Blondie Chaplin then replaced Baby Duval in 1967. This was to be the line-up from 1967 until their demise as a group in 1970.

Steve Fataar has confirmed that Baby Duval is featured as a performer on the Flames second album “That’s Enough”, which was released in early 1967.

    Had an album once but never heard for years - did hear a cover verion of Dove (I think that's the title) by Little Redde with female singing - Not Bad , don't think HMV will have The Flames albums available !

    "Everytime I see you" ist verdächtig ähnlich zu dem Lied "The more I see you" von Chris Montez :-) Mal da auch reinhören - dann hört man die Inspiration...

    As far as I'm concerned, The Flames are a South African band from the 60s and 70s, whose members were the Fataar brothers and Blondie Chaplin, who had a close association (and still do) with the Rolling Stones and the Beach Boys.
