THE McCOYS - 'Fever'/'Sorrow' (Immediate IM 021) Nov 1965

Teen group The McCoys from Union City, Indiana followed up their big hit 'Hang On Sloopy' with 'Fever'. This one's got a cool guitar break and is commercial enough, but for me it's the folk rock flip 'Sorrow' that flips my switch.

'Fever' only charted at number 44 in England and so The McCoys were forever labeled with the 'one hit' wonder tag. 'Sorrow' was noticed by The Merseys (see last blog entry) and they had a big hit with it. Maybe The McCoys picked the wrong song to promote!

  1. The McCoys' version is not bad but I really dig the Merseys' version. It's been playing in my head since yesterday.
