NME review Jun 26, 1964.
cobweb 5th Oct 2014 Just noticed that my copy of the Philips three-prong pressing has the O/T tax code plus a numeral "7" stamped onto the push-out centre (B-side). A bit odd? Juke Jules 31st May 2014 Like on Lonnie Mack's Why
Time for a 'list' of squeaky percussion...? Henry29 31st May 2014 It's not a bird it's a squeaky bass drum pedal Joe left it in. H. Whyperion 30th May 2014 Did Joe Meek owe Howard & Blaikley from previous deals and this was a way of getting funds to them ? Or Meek astute that having Howard Blaikley as writer credits might increase sales?
Bird tweets I think were common depending on where the recording studios were ( if Meek's flat quite possible), but I hear no tweets.
coringhamlad 30th May 2014 Is it just me or is that a bird tweeting at the very end of the recording? Felonious 18th Feb 2014 Roboleyton's scan attributes composers as Alan and Howard Blaikley as per the sheet music.
B side composed by Joe Meek and Derek Lawrence who went on to work with Deep Purple. This of course would produce the same publishing royalties as the A side. I wonder if any sheet music was printed. roboleyton 5th Oct 2013 A side label, with writers mis-print added (Albeit, a badly damaged label.) Geoff Goddard, actually took this to court, but was too shy to take the stand. W.B.lbl 18th Aug 2013 Some U.K. pressings used the "H. & A. Blaikley" songwriting credit on the A side as on U.S. and Canadian pressings; apparently such a variant hasn't as of this point made its way onto here. Klepsie 17th Jul 2013 Goddard certainly seemed to believe as much -- it was the cause of his terminal schism with Meek and his almost complete departure from the music biz. Strawberry_Lynn 17th Jul 2013 Speculation that this song was actually a ballad written by Geoff Goddard, then stolen and turned into a 'foot stomper' by Howard and Blaikley. That's according to a Joe Meek docu I heard on Radio 2 about four years ago Wurzelsepp 18th Jun 2013 I think 587185/87 are either Oriole or CBS pressed records hedgehopperray 3rd Apr 2011 VIDEO Please login or join 45cat to add your comment about this record.
