Blimey Kev, two of my favourite songs in a row, both murdered!



I actually prefer 'Keep Your Dreams', but I went for this one because we have a few Savages fans knocking about who might not have heard it.

Two favourites of mine too!

An acetate was found, I think last year, and it was made available as a bootleg 45 a few months back.

A case of a band making a pretty good record, but another band simply by beefing and speeding it up, making it great and having a hit on their hands, leaving the original artists to drift into obscurity.
