THE PREACHERS - "Hey, Girl" / "Thoughts Of You" (Barry B 3469X) 1967

I'm still delving away in a record box full of groups that begin with the letter "P" hence pulling out this one by Canadian group The Preachers. Information on the internet and the reference guides I have is very scarce, the disc isn't even listed on 45Cat. They appear to have been a three piece outfit, probably all vocalists using studio musicians.

The top side "Hey, Girl" is a Goffin - King composition and sounds like something The Walker Brothers would come up with on a B-Side or deep album cut. It's not really the type of thing I get all excited about. The flip, "Thoughts Of You" is a pleasant enough pop number but doesn't really do much for me. This side was written by Stu Mitchell who wrote "Acid" with the Wes Dakis Rebels.
