M.F.Q. - 'Night Time Girl'/'Lifetime' (Dunhill D-4025) April 1966
This is the second MFQ single in my 2011 Los Angeles select 50. Check out their early release 'If All You Think' at number 32.
'Night Time Girl' is adventurous folk/raga rock with a sound several groups were experimenting with during 1966/67. Here, the MFQ utilize a five string banjo and a Bouzouki to get that authentic eastern feel. The single sold reasonably well and got a mention in Billboard during April 1966 as a regional break out single.
The song was arranged and produced by the in demand Hollywood face Jack Nitzsche.
