Jumbo –She Said
Jumbo –She Said/Wasting My Time –CBS 7820 (1972 UK)
This was the first of three singles released by Jumbo (including the sought after Round and Round on Epic). She Said is a fine near Glam up-tempo pop tune with a mid-60s song construction. It’s catchy as hell with great production touches and it’s another case of a song escaping instead of gaining the exposure it deserved. The B side is more CSNY sounding so of less interest. Jumbo were originally from Swansea and were discovered by The Tremeloes. Two of the members Bob Benham and Aaron Woolley then joined Alan Blakley and Chip Hawkes on some of the more Glam inspired Trems singles.
