The Mindbenders 'Live on Air 1966-1968'
(New & Sealed)
The Mindbenders, live on air, 22nd March 1966, 13th August 1968
From their huge success with Wayne Fontana and The Game Of Love in January 1965, Manchester group The Mindbenders were a guaranteed success story. However in 1965, Fontana took a solo route and left the band midway through a live show in 1965. While many groups may have collapsed under the pressure, The Mindbenders suddenly found a new lease of life when they struck gold with A Groovy Kind Of Love, a song that has become synonymous with the Swinging 60s . It was this, and several other follow-up singles that prompted their numerous BBC sessions from 1966 to 1968. London Calling very proudly presents The Mindbenders in session for the BBC with host Brian Matthew.
Includes a wealth of revealing interviews and exclusive recordings, and charts the group s journey as pop stars and the developing talent of songwriter Eric Stewart. Professionally re-mastered original broadcasts with background liners and rare archival photographs. 22nd March 1966
