Real McCoy –Round The Gum Tree/ I Will –Target 7N 17704 (1969 IRL)
We are talking Bubblegum here and with a capital B! Fire were a trio from Hounslow featuring future Strawb Dave Lambert, they are more widely celebrated for their classic Psych/ Freakbeat number My Father’s Name Was Dad (Decca). Mike was producing this later Fire session.
MB: After we finished the session, I said to myself –What I have done here? –I’ll never work in this business again.
