Within the plethora of groups that formed the 1964 British Invasion, a period from there to about 1966 that saw a flood of artists from the U.K. follow on the heels of The Beatles in dominating the North American Pop singles charts, came this six-man folk, pop/soft rock band from Hertfordshire, England in 1965 (vocalist Peter Moules, guitarists Howard Lubin and David Meikle, keyboardist Thomas Moeller, bassist Rod Garwood and drummer Hugh Halliday).
Their impact on the Billboard Pop Hot 100 was, however, minimal, with only Concrete And Clay (written by Moeller and Brian Parker) getting into the Top 40 at # 28 in May 1965 b/w When I Fall In Love on London 9751. The follow-up You've Never Been In Love Like This Before then barely made the Hot 100 at # 95 in July b/w Tell Somebody You Know on London 9761, and later that year Hark/Stop Wasting Your Time on London 9790 was shut out completely.
Their style and choice of material was more of the type heard in the late 1950s/early 1960s and seemed more suited to the Adult Contemporary (or Easy Listening) charts that Billboard had introduced in 1961. Indeed, their biggest hit here, Concrete And Clay, did much better on those listings, reaching # 9. Perhaps had more of their singles been released in North America and geared towards that audience, they may have had better commercial results.
Their only LP released on this side of the Atlantic titled "Unit 4+2 # 1" (London PS-427) came out in 1965 with these tracks: 1. Butterfly; 2. I Will; 3. Face In My Head; 4. 3:30; 5. Too Fast, Too Slow; 6. Something I Can Believe In; 7. (Living In) The World Of Broken Hearts; 8. Loving Takes A Little Understanding; 9. Booby Trap; 10. I Can't Stop.
All four sides of their two U.S. charters plus all from the LP except tracks 3, 6, 7 and 10 are in this volume, which comes with very good sound reproduction.
A simultaneous U.S. cover by Eddie Rambeau (real name Edward Flurie) from Hazleton, Pennsylvania also got into the Hot 100 Top 40 at # 35, as well as # 13 Adult Contemporary. Ironically, he too would only ever have one other nationally-charted single, the July 1965 # 30 Adult Contemporary/# 112 Hot 100 Bubble Under My Name Is Mud.
