THE AMERICAN BEETLES - 'Say You Do'/'I Wish You Everything' (Yorey Records Y-1001) 1965
This group from Florida had a very unfortunate name, some would say an appalling one. Just what were they thinking of? Fortunately by 1966 they had the good sense to rename themselves The Razer's Edge.
Soundwise The American Beetles had a very raw British Invasion approach with the flip 'Say You Do' being a prime example of their undiluted teenbeat punch.
The A-Side 'I Wish You Everything' is a slow beat ballad with some sweet harmonies and is pretty much mainstream radio fodder.
New York producer Bob Yorey was responsible for getting The American Beetles sound down on tape for this release and I'm guessing that Yorey Records was his label.
