MICHAEL'S MYSTICS - "You Ran Away" / "Hi Bird" (Bear #1965) 1965
Michael's Mystics were a popular mid sixties outfit from St Paul, MN. despite having a large local following they failed to break out anywhere else and didn't leave much behind apart from this 45 on the Bear label. What a great little bear logo too. Both sides are decent beat but for my taste "You Ran Away" edges it.
"You Ran Away" is a competent Mersey beat style stomper with subtle background sax, unison vocals and a fabulous but short lead guitar break. This number would have sounded so much better played faster.
