Previously only available as an import from Germany.
Unit 4+2 were a very underated group, perhaps not wild enough to be as successful as their music deserved them to be.
An excellent buy, though.
Their music was a blend of folk, pop and rock’n’roll. Their first hit was The green fields, which just scraped into the British chart. The next single, Sorrow and pain, failed to chart at all. The real breakthrough came via their third single, the British chart-topper, Concrete and clay, which was also an American top thirty hit. The follow-up, You’ve never been in love like this before, was a British top twenty hit but only just got into the American chart. Ten more singles were released but none of them charted, during which time there were several personnel changes.
This compilation includes all the hits and several of the A-sides that failed to chart – there were too many failures to include them all here. It also includes covers of Cotton fields, 500 miles, La bamba, You’ve lost that loving feeling and Swing down chariot – four different songs with very different origins.
Unit 4 + 2 made some entertaining music, but history will record them as a one-hit wonder. This collection is for those (like me) who are deeply into sixties music and who want to explore its obscure backwaters.
