GOLDIE & the GINGERBREADS - "That's Why I Love You" / "The Skip" (Decca F.12126) April 1965
This all girl group were American but lived, worked, recorded and released several records in Britain during 1964 - 1967 so were very much part of the UK music scene.
They appeared in all of the British music papers and magazines and toured Britain extensively with The Rolling Stones, The Hollies, The Animals, The Yardbirds and The Kinks etc etc.... in other words, the English rock royalty.
One of their tunes that most definitely fits in here is the killer mod instrumental "The Skip" which was hidden away on the flip side of "That's Why I Love You" - a group original too, no faceless studio hacks here piecing together a B-Side for an obscure girl group. Produced by Shel Talmy.
