 Safaris: Not to be confused with the Surfaris who were around at about the same time. These had nothing to do with 'surf' but were a Los Angeles vocal group. The Safaris consisted of Jim Stephens (brother of label-mate Julie "Blue-Mood" Stephens) Shelly Briar, Richard Clasky and Marvin Rosenberg. Jim is now a lawyer in West Los Angeles. (Thanks go to 'The Phantom' for naming this line up).
Top Rank JAR424 1960 Image Of A Girl/ Four Steps To Love
Top Rank JAR528 1960 The Girl With The Story In Her Eyes/ Summer Nights

 Sally Kelly: One of very few girls managed by the UK rock and roll pioneering manager Larry Parnes.
Decca F11175 1959 Little Cutie/ Come Back To Me
Decca F11238 1960 He'll Have To Stay/ Honey, That's Alright

 Salome: This intriguingly named Spanish singer shared joint victory with this song in the 1969 Eurovision song contest. It tied with three others including 'Boom Bang A Bang' from Britain's Lulu.
Page One POF137 1969 Vivo Cantando/ Amigos Amigos

 Salt 'N' Pepper:
London HLU9338 1960 High Noon/ Come Softly To Me

 Sammy Masters: This singer/ guitarist- originaly from Sasakawa, Oklahoma- is still going strong and his only output on the label is now the most sought after Warner Bros UK release.
Warner Bros. WB10 1960 Rockin' Redwing/ Lonely Weekend
London HLR 9949 1965 I Fought The Law (And The Law Won)/ Big Man Cried

 Sammy Salvo:
RCA RCA1032 1958 Oh Julie/ Say Yeah
London HLP8997 1959 Afraid/ Marble Heart
Polydor NH66974 1962 Billy Blue/ French Poodle

 Sanford Clark: These excellent numbers probably didn't get enough airplay to chart in the UK. They were arranged by Lee Hazlewood who did excellent work with the backing guitar played by Al Casey. He would later do the same for Duane Eddy who did chart, as did Nancy Sinatra who Hazlewood would later sing with.
London HLD8320 1956 The Fool/ Lonesome For A Letter
London HLW8959 1959 Run Boy Run/ New Kind Of Fool

Blue Beat BB214 1964 Last Time/ Sing And Shout
Blue Beat BB263 1964 Never Let You Go

 Screaming Lord Sutch: Larger than life British Rock 'N' Roller who was well loved and inspired many. Despite gaining a lot of publicity for himself, largely through his spoof politics, 'The Monster Raving Loony Party', he never sold sufficient singles to chart. He was the self professed king of 'horror rock and roll'- note that 'Monster In Black Tights' is his horror alternative to 'Venus In Blue Jeans'. His group, 'The Savages' were host to many UK musicians who became more successful than Sutch. His early career overlapped that of Joe Meek with whom he cut many tracks. Sadly, like Meek, this great character was to take his own life during a state of depression.

 Shake Keane Fivetet:
Piccadilly 7N35034 1962 The Nursery Blues/ Ruanda

 Shakers: UK, not to be confused with the later US group of the same name, because they weren't really the Shakers at all, but Merseysiders 'Kingsize Taylor And The Dominoes' incognito.
Polydor NH52158 1963 Money/ Memphis Tennessee
Polydor NH52213 1963 Hippy Hippy Shake/ Dr. Feelgood
Polydor NH52258 1963 Money/ Hippy Hippy Shake

Pye 7N17194 1966 I Will Warm Your Heart/ Incense

 Sheila Hancock: This, as far as I am aware is the only time this versatile UK actress cut a record. She married actor John Thaw ten years later.
Decca F11618 1963 My Last Cigarette/ Landlord And Tenant

 Sonny Boy Williamson: Born in Glendora, Mississippi during 1897, this Sonny Boy was the second bluesman to go under that name. The first 'Sonny Boy', John Lee Williamson- an inventive harmonica bluesman- was mugged and murdered in 1948. The latter, now better known 'Sonny Boy', a master of harmonica blues adopted the name during 1942- probably to exploit the fame of the other. His original name had been 'Rice Miller'. He became a favourite of blues revivalists during the 1960s and enjoyed the idolisation bestowed on him during this 'Indian Summer' of his long musical career.

London HL9132 1960 Jenny Lou/ Passin' Through

 Sonny Terry And Brownie McGhee: Probably one of the blues greatest couplings. Started in 1940, the pair worked together until 1982, by which time their dislike for each other had become too intense for the partnership to continue.
Columbia DB4433 1960 Talking Harmonica Blues/ Rockin' And Whoopin'
Oriole CB1946 1964 Goin' Down Slow/ Dissatisfied Woman

London HLC9970 1965 Good Time Tonight/ Foolish Dreamer

Top Rank JAR228 1959 The Lonely Jet Pilot/ The Clouds

Stateside SS2024 1967 Uptight Good Woman/ Anything You Do Is Alright

 Spike Jones: Spike's zany madcap musical mayhem gained a following in the UK but no chart hits. His original work is easier to find on EPs than anything else; his 45 rpm singles are quite rare.

HMV 7M160 1953 I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus/ Winter
HMV 7M324 1955 Secret Love/ I'm In The Mood For Love

 Staccatos: UK
Fontana TF966 1968 Butchers And Bakers/ Imitations Of Love

 Stan Kenton Orchestra: Arguably, Stan Kenton's band was more a product of the American dance hall than of jazz and carried criticism for it. However, his music was popular in the UK and many British dance bands used Kenton as their model. Nevertheless, this popularity never brought sufficient sales of singles to enter the UK pop chart.

 Stanley Holloway: This popular character actor was a familiar figure in British comedy films of the 1940s and 1950s. However, he was also well known for his comical monologues, a talent for which he had cultivated in the music halls. Although these frequently depicted activities in the North of England, Stanley was really a southerner. His later, usually musical, recordings better reflected his origins.

 Sue Nicholls: The first of these two singles reached #17 in the UK chart, so this entry shouldn't really be in these listings. However I've added Sue because to most British TV viewers she will be better known as Audrey Roberts of 'Coronation Street'. I think she was an actress in TV's 'Crossroads' at the time these singles were cut.
