 Somebody must have thought a lot of them to get so many releases in Europe. Let's hope someone can dig up some info on them.

 Yes David, I read that in the CD liner notes of a Fantastic Voyage compilation, but there's no indication of who The Good Vibrations were and 'Call Me Lightning' (EMBS 270) never was released in the UK, though it was released in Germany. Mike Berry had been a producer for Rediffusion where he did lots of 'soundalike covers', some of which were also issued on a series of LPs on Fontana. Even The Good Vibrations LP contained no info on the group, though foreign 7" releases did have picture sleeves which included a photo of the group.

 Mike Berry’s involvement with Ember probably commenced in
February 1967, when the Orpington, Kent-based producer signed to
the label to deliver a single credited to The Peenuts. Not to be
confused with the singer and actor of the same name, Berry furthered
his relationship with Ember in 1969, signing a number of acts to the
label via Mike Berry Productions. The Good Vibrations came on board
in the spring, but their debut single, a cover of The Who’s 'Call Me
Lightning' does not appear to have been issued until 1970. An album,
'Dance Party Explosion', eventually followed in June 1972.

 Added B side label scan. Never got to the bottom of why a Good Vibrations track was put on the B side of The Intruders, nor discovered who The Good Vibrations were. There's nothing about them on Fantastic Voyage's reissue CDs of Ember material either. That said Ember did well abroad with them with singles being issued in 18 territories many with pic sleeves. Will upload a few later.
