The Flies

Hoping to stay in contention for the title of "internet music king of diversity", today we present the "Complete Collection, 1965-68" of the Flies, an enjoyable collection at the very least.

What is intersting about this collection of second-line UK garage rockers is that the members later turned up in so many other great bands.....The Flies were singer Robin Hunt, guitarist George Haywood, bassist Ian Baldwin, keyboardist/guitarist John Da Costa, and and drummer Peter Dunton, who later appeared in great bands Bulldog Breed, T2, and Neon Pearl.

The Flies appear on many of the comps of this era, on severl of the same comps that I have featured on this very blog.....they are best known, I would guess, for their fuzzed out version of the Monkee's "Steppin Stone", but they really did have some good stuff in the woodwork for lovers of that era's sound......"Talk to Me" is a fine pop/psych gem, "Turning Back the Page""The Magic Train", really fine songs, as well as interesting covers of Chuck Berry's "Reelin' and Rockin'" and the Beatles "Ticket To Ride".......not pretending this is earth shattering material, but it's worth a listen, and it IS Friday and I need an easy one because I have Strat o matic baseball tonight, and you know my priorities (my Kissimee Astros are off to a blazing 14-2 start!)......so dig up on this if you wish, something perhaps more fullfilling tomorrow, I have several "BIG" posts nearly ready to go, but a LOT of work, so  have to be in the right mood......we'll see what the weekend brings!
