Things Fall Apart –Bye Bye My Rose


Things Fall Apart –Bye Bye My Rose/Manna –President PT 378 (1972 UK)

Nice N Heavy 3 chorder à la Move’s Do Ya. The Power chords have a cool overloaded metallic clang to them and there is some abundant OTT fuzz lead throughout. The chorus is surprisingly poppy for its surroundings, so you can file it somewhere between Freakbeat/Pop Rock and Crunching Glam. I have no info on these guys...

WOWWWW!!! Welcome to the Most Wanted List, TFA! What a tune - great mix of Troggs/Equals stomp, 'Do Ya'-as-played-by-Slade guitar and fuzz fuzz fuzz fuzz fuzz! An absolute storming number!

Eddy Grant usually wrote his own stuff. Doesn't sound quite like Eddy to me, but he does sound West Indian. Maybe doing a favor for a friend? Great stuff! How's the B-side?

B side is an OK mid tempo pop rock tune with strange voice over breaks...
