Rockin' Horse – Don't You Ever Think I Cry? (19 plays)
‘Don’t You Ever Think I Cry?’ by Rockin’ Horse (1970)
A one off recording project from Liverpool musicians Jimmy Campbell and Billy Kinsley that was released 4 years too late and dismissed as Post-Beatles rubbish. Man were they wrong. The best of Big Star and Badfinger come to mind when listening to their only album called ‘Yes It Is’.
This one comes from the Carl and the Passions – “So Tough album. It’s the first time the Beach Boys are joined by Blondie Chaplin and Ricky Fataar from the South African band called the Flame. They both wrote and sung this song so it’s basically the Flame with the Beach Boys as the backing band. Carl can suck it.
Manfred Mann's Earth Band – Living Without You (9 plays)
‘Living Without You’ by Manfred Mann’s Earth Band (1972)
This jangly rocker, complete with state of the art synths for the time, is another amazing example of how Manfred Mann’s Earth Band could never successfully write their own hit song. This was written by Randy Newman, thanks.
