Wishful Thinking

Wishful Thinking - V.I.P (Decca F12438. 1966)

Mainly known for their harmony work. The band were very popular in the South West, with Peanuts and Step by Step becoming staples of many Cornish bands live sets, the latter of course being covered by The Onyx. On their first 45 they revved things up a couple of gears with this great catchy piece of beat.

Wishful Thinking - I Want You Girl (Decca F12760. 1968)

....and later on their career they cut this gorgous piece of pop psych. After a few line-up changes they would regroup in the early 70s and move into a more progressive direction. Recently back together I believe their are some new recordings in the works.
