Psychedelic George from Team Spirit (at Brass Monkey) has asked me a few times about Simon Dupree And The Big Sound.
I says “Naw – I never heard of them”
But when I finally get round to looking them up – I definitely know one of their tunes.
It’s a belter and it got to number 9 in the UK charts in 1967. In fact it was their only hit.
After a brief spell where they had Elton John as a stand-in keyboardists (when he was plain-old Reg Dwight), the band split up and then reformed as 1970s prog-rock megaliths Gentle Giant
This is their big hit and is has a Haunting Sound!
