THE MORNING DEW - 'Be A Friend'/'Go Away' (Fairyland 1003) July 1967
The follow up Morning Dew single proved to be a disappointing seller in 1967 but that has no bearing on my appreciation for a two sided winner in every way.
The group chose 'Be A Friend' as the top side and the song more than enhances The Morning Dew's solid reputation as a recording unit. Maybe at over 3 and a half minutes it's a little too long and could have been edited to a shorter and punchier folk rocker. Once again the subtle use of fuzz guitar is a massive enhancement.
The flip 'Go Away' could have easily been the A-side. This one follows the same style as 'No More'....
