Great record this, and though the original
's a lost soul classic, I still think I prefer the cover.
And I was pleased Paul Du Noyer was so kind about The Searchers in his book
- 'the sound
that was so special....radiant, chiming twin-guitars...a profound influence on The Byrds' Roger McGuinn' ; they weren't songwriters and couldn't compete with the Lennons and McCartneys and Davies and Stones, but their singles were so much a part of our late 60s infancies, always there, in the air, needles and pins-ah
I don't remember this one from the time, which made me love it all the more when it finally reached me on a reissue label sampler, sometime in the early 90s when it was otherwise all squall and baggy and blast.
