Formed in London in 1965, this mixed race group of course scored a massive hit with "Baby Come Back". This follow up (a few singles later) shoulda been just as huge; pity that it wasn't.

For folks in my generation, Eddy Grant was an early MTV hero with his still fresh "Electric Avenue" and here, 20 year old (listed as "Edmond") Grant does a fantastic job in relaying the tale of being true to one's love.

Very nice also that the name "The Equals" was a commentary on the fact that this mixed race band were all, in fact, "equal".

from 1969...

Good one! The guitar riff and the drum break are definitely inspired by the Stones' "Satisfaction".
