Barry Ryan Eloïse


  1. I think of this as from the dawn of pop, before heavily financed bands starting with the Beatles brought in more stylish, smoother sounds. Contemprary with
    - Gerry & the Pacemakers - Ferry 'Cross the Mersey
    - Small Faces - Homburg
    - Rolling Stones - Paint it black
    - Marmalade - Reflections of my life

    You could hear individual instruments without sophisticated recording and transmission. Every other week, a novel sound would invade the pop charts. Hundreds of bands were only flashes in the pan, but they kept the world sane while the money-men looked for ever more profit from destruction and anguish.

  2. I thought "Homburg" was by Procol Harum. I have to check out Small Faces version.

  3. Bro,

    You brought back those memories...sweet memories!

  4. Sorry, my mistake. I did post the Procol Harum link earlier.
