THE NASHVILLE TEENS - 'The Biggest Night Of Her Life'/'Last Minute' (Decca F.12657) September 1967
A neat two sided pop psych release was the next Nashville Teens single to completely miss the charts. 'The Biggest Night Of Her Life' was a Randy Newman song notable for some 'bendy' production techniques from future Jam producer Vic Smith.
The flip 'Last Minute' is a group original, written by vocalist Arthur Sharp and is a much more instant mod beat effort sounding like their previous couple of records recorded by Shel Talmy.
During August 1967, and just before the release of this single, the NME reported that lead guitarist John Allan and bassist Pete Shannon were leaving The Nashville Teens. Shannon was replaced by Neil Korner.
