THE MOCKINGBIRDS - 'You Stole My Love' / 'Skit Skat' (Immediate IM 015) October 1965
The Graham Gouldman penned "You Stole My Love" is a fabulous record but like so many classy 45s released in Britain back in the mid 60s it failed to sell and flopped, which seriously beggars believe.
The song has a haunting quality with mod style backing vocals. The production is by Paul Samwell-Smith which gives it a Yardbirds edge, the guitar hook is wondrous and the melody is happenin'.... totally stunning in every way.
The nucleus of The Mockinbirds formed 10cc. but "You Stole My Love" is where it's really at!
