Young & Renshaw - This is Young & Renshaw

All infos (and more infos) from

When, though The Toggery Five split, most of the group members continued playing in new groups or solo, in the years to come.

1967 saw Paul Young and Frank Renshaw together again under the name "The Young Brothers". The duo recorded a single for MCA, "I've Always Wanted Love" b/w "Mirror, Mirror", produced by Roger Cook and Roger Greenaway. This marked the beginning of a long-lasting business relationship between Young, Renshaw, Cook and Greenaway. They formed a publishing company together called "Grenyoco Music", and Young and Renshaw concentrated on songwriting, as well as doing sessions for a number of artists in the Cook & Greenaway stable.
In 1970 Paul Young and Frank Renshaw formed a new group as a vehicle to present and develop their own songs. This was called Young & Renshaw and comprised Paul Young on vocals and percussion, Frank Renshaw on vocals/guitar/harmonica, Graham Harrop from "Sponge" and "Pacific Drift" on bass, Ronnie Walker from "Sweet Marriage" on lead guitar, and Phil Keen, a former member of "Johnny Peters And The Crestas" and Wayne Fontana, on drums. They spent about a year in Germany writing, rehearsing and gigging  -  then returned to London and recorded an excellent country rock album with Cook & Greenaway as producers. Titled "This Is Young & Renshaw", it contained twelve Young-Renshaw originals and was released in late 1971. A few singles also saw the light of day, but sadly none of the records charted, and the group split up in 1973.
