THE NASHVILLE TEENS - THE HARD WAY


THE NASHVILLE TEENS - 'The Hard Way'/'Upside Down' (Decca F.12316) January 1966

The Nashville Teens chose an Ashford, Simpson and Armstead song as their first single in 1966. 'The Hard Way' is a mod soul effort and should appeal to those with a liking for that genre. It sounds a tad like The Action.

The other side 'Upside Down' is more in keeping with their beat sound but hardly sets the world alight. The group were interviewed in Record Mirror at the time slating The Mark Leeman Five for recording and releasing 'Forbidden Fruit' during January '66. This was going to be the next Nashville Teens 45 but it was held over in favour of 'The Hard Way.'
