THE SESSIONS - LET ME IN


THE SESSIONS - 'Let Me In'/'Bouncing Bass' (Fontana F-1529) November 1965

I've had this record several years and did some research on it ages ago but never got around to posting it on 'Flower Bomb Songs'. I guess after writing about The Sorrows version of 'Let Me In' last time out, this is the perfect time for The Sessions.

Scant information exists about The Sessions but they were a short lived Brum beat outfit that enjoyed NO releases in England but somehow 'Let Me In' b/w 'Bouncing Bass' got a release in USA.
The Sessions included future Deep Purple guitarist Ritchie Blackmore and according to his official website The Sessions also included Chas Hodges (bass), Nicky Hopkins (piano), Jimmy Evans (drums) and singer/songwriter (and future Sorrows member Miki Dallon on vocals).

The studio sessions for both recordings took place during March 1965, so this version was way earlier than the more familiar Sorrows take. 'Bouncing Bass' is an instrumental.

  1. An English group's record not released in England? Interesting! Thanks for the introduction.

  2. Yes, there are a handful of 45s from English beat groups that never got a UK release. The Jynx Pack are another combo that spring to mind.

  3. Ritchie Blackmore and Nicky Hopkins? Wow, a "proto" supergroup! I've had this one for quite a while also and I knew there was a Sorrows connection but was unaware that those two guys were involved. Excellent work again! (as usual)
