Fresh Air –It Takes Too Long


Fresh Air –It Takes Too Long/Here Comes Summer –Philips 6006187 (1972 UK)
I originally picked up this single when I was 12 or 13 and although it somehow got snapped in half along the way, I never had the heart to throw it out. As I recently found a mint copy, I am now able present this fine slab of early 70s POP which out Harrisons G. Harrison on all levels. It also strikes a resemblance to what Nimbo or The Rockits were going for on their sub Badfinger excursions. Nothing too original then, but I challenge anyone to get this track out of their head after hearing it. Oh and if anyone has something to trade for an old copy snapped in half – let me know...

Yes, very Harrison. Reminds me of a less laid-back Splinter.

Brilliant stuff, thanks for uploading this.

Did anyone ever establish whether this is the same Fresh Air who released "Running Wild" in the sixties, or are they two different entities (or perhaps a studio based band)?

Hi
I don't think it's the same band,probably not the US band either. Definitely not the Dutch band of the same name. I just found the other Fresh Air single on Philips...
