47. THE DEVONS - It's All Over Now, Baby Blue


THE DEVONS - 'It's All Over Now, Baby Blue'/'Are You Really Real' (Decca 31822) August 1965

The Devons were another likely Gary Usher studio project, he arranged and produced both sides, even writing the flip 'Are You Really Real', a Dylanesque folk rock protest jewel.

The often recorded 'It's All Over Now, Baby Blue' has a sweet arrangement with some solid guitar and vocals, sounding a lot like The Searchers. It was a Billboard Chart Spotlight in the last week of July 1965 but appears to have gone unnoticed after this. Both sides have yet to see any compilation action and every reference guide I have fail to even mention The Devons. Something of an enigma.

  1. Interesting arrangement. The guitar that's playing at the lower end of the scale gives the song some occasional Bakersfield country-music flavor...
