Wayne Fontana & The Mindbenders/It's Wayne Fontana & The Mindbenders by Wayne Fontana & The Mindbenders (1964/1965)
Originally released in 1964 and 1965 on the Fontana label. Included among the ranks of The Mindbenders were future 10cc members Eric Stewart (at the time of these recordings) on guitar and vocals, and later (1968) Graham Gouldman on bass
For straightforward solid meat'n'potatoes British Beat, one need look no further than Wayne Fontana & The Mindbenders. What they lacked in originality they more than made up for in good old-fashioned exuberance and panache
Wayne Fontana & The Mindbenders formed in 1963 in Manchester and were brought to London in the wake of the Merseybeat goldrush. They entered the UK Top 10 in 1964 with a cover of Major Lance's 'Um, Um, Um, Um, Um, Um'(see BGOCD369!), and within a year had a worldwide hit with the infectious 'Game Of Love'. BGO will hopefully be including these as bonus tracks as they were inexplicably left off the original albums featured here
After Wayne left, the band had another transatlantic smash with 'A Groovy Kind Of Love', later a big hit in 1988 for Phil Collins
