PHIL and the FRANTICS - 'I Must Run' / 'Pain' (Rabbit 45-1219) February 1966
The best place to hear the recordings of Phoenix, AZ group Phil and the Frantics is via the mid 80s retrospective on Voxx Records, strange then, that I can't find my copy. Maybe I didn't even buy it back in the day but thought I had!
'I Must Run' is almost 100% based on The Zombies song 'I Must Move' but nevertheless, it's still an awesome moody beat number with a great organ dominated sound. The flip 'Pain' is also a British Invasion styled tune.
According to 'Fuzz Acid & Flowers' 'I Must Run' was a sizable local hit which brought the group some notice, eventually gaining a touring slot with Peter & Gordon.
