Vanda & Young Obscurity: The Rag Dolls –My Old Man’s A Groovy Old Man
The Rag Dolls –My Old Man’s A Groovy Old Man/They Didn’t Believe Me –Columbia DB 8378 (1968 UK)
Again planned to feature on the Easybeats’ unreleased Good Times LP, it finally gained release by Bon Scott’s Valentines, Dr Marigold’s as well as this first version by The Rag Dolls. Although instantly recognisable as a Vanda & Young creation with its inventive chord progressions and structure, the song itself is more interesting artefact than arresting near masterpiece.
