THE FOUNDATIONS - "Build Me Up Buttercup" / "New Direction" (Pye 7N.17636) November 1968
On the flip side of The Foundations big hit "Build Me Up Buttercup" is this pounding psychedelic soul number. Starts with a kind of Star Trek organ sound, builds into a Swinging London spy thriller tune, then goes all heavy. Loads of brass, organ and bad trip lyrics "Colours swirling, emotions whirling, my mind is upside down."
Get with their "New Direction."
UK Chart Position: #2
