The label released it at the start of 1967 with their name misspelled on the label - except their name was misspelled in the first place and you could say the label got it right. "Now She's Mine" is a great original by Ian Irvine. The vocals and lyrics are excellent and Graham Johnston really helps distinguish the song with the variety of sounds he lays over it. The neat buzzy tone comes from a home-made fuzz pedal created by someone from the local post office. "I Want Your Love" is a ballad with a cool echo effect on the opening chords. It was written by Johnston - Irvine - Berryman. 7) The Crescendos, a New Jersey Band, recorded "A Fellow Needs a Girl" by Rogers and Hammerstein and an original song "Wild Cat", which was initially labeled "Black Cat" but changed.
