LIMEY & THE YANKS - 'Out Of Sight, Out Of Mind'/'Gather My Things And Go' (Loma 2059) October 1966
Limey & The Yanks formed in mid 1965 in Garden Grove, Orange Country and soon after became regulars at various Sunset Strip venues. Their first 45, 'Guaranteed Love' on the collectable Star burst Records label established them as an act with the potential to break out of Los Angeles.
They enjoyed plenty of publicity and appearances on prime time music shows which should have seen their potential reap deserved rewards but the follow up single 'Out Of Sight, Out Of Mind' on Loma didn't take Limey & The Yanks to the next level. This is a shame because several unreleased Limey recordings have recently emerged suggesting that an album could have followed any sizeable hit.
'Out Of Sight, Out Of Mind' was also released as a 45 by The Bit A Sweet and The Marauders.
I found a discussion about 'Out Of Sight, Out Of Mind' on the old G45 Forum. It appears that The Marauders released their version of the song first as the B-side to 'Jug Band Blues' (July/August 1966), followed by Limey & The Yanks (October 1966). The Bit A Sweet version was released sometime in 1967 as a B-side.
