THE DENNISONS - WALKIN' THE DOG b/w YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT LOVE IS
Hailing from Liverpool and with all bets on them that would be the "next Beatles", The Dennisons seemingly had it all, except for the massive success which they seemingly deserved. They looked great and were fantastic musicians and singers (shades of the fab four!). Perhaps still smarting from the wounds of missing the Beatle boat, Decca records hurriedly signed the Dennisons in 1963.
Releasing only a scant three singles, this was the second and finds an incredible version of the Rufus Thomas standard, backed with a number that was (allegedly) written for the lads specifically by Ben E King while they were touring together.
Easily the best double sided Merseybeat record other than those released by the group whose name starts with B and ends with S.
