THE MONTANAS - THAT'S WHEN HAPPINESS BEGAN

Phew...What a RAVER!

The Montanas hailed from Wolverhampton, UK ("the Midlands") and had a rather long run together which later produced two minor US hit singles. Most of the groups releases found more of a pop flavor, but this track matches two of my favorite things; namely, a strong R&B influence and devastating FUZZ guitar.

from 1966...

The flip side "You Gotta Be Loved", while not in the class of "Happiness..." is a nice pop rocker in it's own right.

The Montanas featured future Trapeze Terence Rowley. The managed to squeeze out 9 45s between 65 and 69. This was their second.

Great record (and blog!).

This song is actually a cover of an American garage band, can't remember which off the top of my head.
