Atlantis – I Ain’t Got Time


Atlantis – I Ain’t Got Time/Teddy Boyd’s Rock ‘N’ Roll Show –Fury FY 303 (1972 UK)

Released on the short-lived Fury (as in Billy) label (home to 2 obscure Alvin Stardust releases), I Ain’t Got Time sounds like a Stompin’ Slade doing their very best John Lennon, by the middle 8 we enter into Badfinger territory, which is a really nice turn of events. I then got to thinking that this all sounded very much like Rockin’ Horse and when looking at the credits it all became clear. This is an UNDOCUMENTED (as far as I know) Rockin’ Horse release! One year after their pivotal LP, it all makes sense...The A side is written by Bill Kinsley and the rockin’ B side is by Jimmy Campbell, plus Fury label owner Hal Carter produced the Rockin’ Horse LP! Isn’t it wonderful how things work out sometimes...

Along with P.A.T.C.H., Atlantis approximate and presage 'Shake Some Action' like nothing else I've heard. Great!
