 I thought this single would have fared better than "Defecting Grey". As brilliant as "Defecting Grey" is, it was too complex for the average record-buying public, especially in a year when the charts were (for the most part) sodden with slushy ballads."Defecting Grey" is the stuff brilliant album tracks are made of, rather than hit singles.

On the other hand, "Talking About The Good Times" had a far more commercial sound for 1968. It sounds like a cross between the "Sergeant Pepper"-era Beatles and the "Matchstick Men"-era Status Quo. The B-side is equally as good and could just as easily have been the A-side. I would have expected this one to be a minor hit (maybe in the 20s) with a UK sale of maybe 100,000.

 Absolutely brilliant, both sides being impressive prime slices of British psychedelia. The first results of new sessions underway at Abbey Road which was the start of the sessions for "SF Sorrow." This only sold around 3,000 copies worldwide... EMI were not really promoting the band well, so this was generally ignored and overlooked. Drummer Skip Alan quit the band the following month to be replaced by Twink for just over a year.
