FRONT PAGE NEWS - Thoughts


FRONT PAGE NEWS - 'Thoughts'/'You Better Behave' (Dial 4052) January 1967

'Thoughts' has been comped several times over the years most recently on the Sundazed series Garage Beat '66 from the mastertapes but that version is different with more fuzz action at the intro and outro, it also sounds slightly slower. The single release version on Dial is shorter and much more dynamic.

It was thought that Front Page News hailed from Fort Worth in Texas but according to the liners of Garage Beat '66 - Volume 5, it seems that the group went to Fort Worth from Tulsa, Oklahoma to record their music under the name of The New Imperials. However, for reasons unknown their name was changed to Front Page News for the 45 release.

'Thoughts' is a cool fuzz and tambourine bash with the kind of tune that hangs around in your mind for days. Needless to say it remained in obscurity.

  1. Outstanding track, Colin. Love the fuzzed out raga freak out in the beginning. Oddly, I also find it to have a bit of a Monkees feel to it ("I'm a Believer").

  2. I have this on two different comps, but this is much more exciting and you have really brought out the quality of this excellent track, as ever many thanks Colin.
