BILLY FURY - 'I Call For My Rose'/'Bye Bye' (Parlophone R 5788) July 1969
England's answer to Elvis Presley was probably Billy Fury and he enjoyed lots of rock 'n' roll hits pre Beatlemania. None of these songs are 'Flower Bomb Songs' material. However, in December 1966 Billy Fury signed to Parlophone and some of this material does fit my blog criteria.
Every Billy Fury Parlophone 45 is tough to score and they rarely turn up because each release bombed worse than the previous one. So this new CD release is essential if you want to listen to these rare and forgotten sides.
Have a listen to his self penned 'Bye Bye' which borrows heavily from hammond heavy groups like Spencer Davis Group and The Brian Auger Trinity. He's certainly got a great mod mover with this one.
