THE SHEFFIELDS - NOTHING I CAN DO


THE SHEFFIELDS - 'Nothing I Can Do'/'My Only Wish' (Fenton 980-C) August 1965

Hundreds of American groups (maybe thousands) were influenced by the Brit Invasion sound and none finer than The Sheffields from Holland, Michigan. They even called themselves after a City in England such was the need to embrace the rampant English 'disease' of rock and roll from 1964 onwards.

'Nothing I Can Do' is a perfect harmonious beat number that sounds like the best song The Searchers never wrote. This was always one of my favourite cuts on 'Scream Loud' The Fenton Story. It was also re-recorded and released on the Chicago based Destination label in 1966.

line-up:
Dale Knoll (bass)
Ron Gibson (lead guitar)
John Dunn (rythmn guitar)
Rodney Mullett (drums)
Gary Teall (lead singer)
