PLASTIC PENNY - "Your Way To Tell Me Go" / "Baby You're Not To Blame" (Page One POF 079) July 1968
I haven't posted a single of the day for a while. How about this fab psych side by Plastic Penny from 1968 which MOVEs along, killer bass runs especially. "Your Way To Tell Me Go" is an under the radar obscurity.
The other side is heavy mod bass pounder "Baby You're Not To Blame" from mid 1968. If you dig late period Small Faces then this is a must...
Paul Raymond joined Chicken Shack. Mick Grabham went to Cochise and Procol Harum, and Tony Murray joined Troggs....Murray also produced the excellent "Restless Night" album by Octopus on the Penny Farthing label......
THE HONEYCOMBS - "That Loving Feeling" / "Should A Man Cry" (Astor AP-1307) September 1966
45 ACTion time of the day and The Honeycombs final single from late 1966. Fab sound with male/femme vocal harmonies. Wonderful Joe Meek production job too. The Honeycombs started wearing Carnaby Street style mod threads but to no avail, the record didn't sell and it remains very hard to find.
So much so, my search led me to Australia for the release on Astor.
