Lovin' Couple - The Sun Is A Wanderer

Lovin' Couple - The Sun Is A Wanderer (Amy 11,021. 1967)

Last one for today and another pop 45, this one's a bit more folky than the others. Geld-Udell wrote and produced a huge list of mainstream records, including Brian Hyland, Jackie Wilson, Gene Pitney and the Carpenters.

Johnny Tillotson - Don't Tell Me It's Raining

Johnny Tillotson - Don't Tell Me It's Raining (MGM K-13738. 1967)

Here's another pop 45. Johnny is most famous for 'Poetry In Motion' of course. Not one for everybody, but if you dig light summery pop you might well enjoy this one.

Mission - You Bring It All Together

The Mission - You Bring It All Together (Ranwood 881. 1970)

Written by famed songwriter Jeff Barry, this is a catchy 60s pop number put out under a fictitious band name.

LD Mitchell & the Amalgamated Taxi Cab Service - Planet Of Union/Roses Roses

LD Mitchell & the Amalgamated Taxi Cab Service - Planet Of Union/Roses Roses (Alley 1053. 1970)

LD was Larry Mitchell but I don't know who the Taxi Cab were, presumably a studio concoction. Larry would go on to become a preacher. Sounds earlier than '70.

This 45 was featured on the superb "Psych Of The South" compilation, which is well worth checking out.
