A continuation of Britmovie Music from the old BritMovie website. Each week, normally on a Saturday I'll post half a dozen music videos, both old and new. You can also check out my YouTube channel here: agutterfan.

Ria Bartok was born Marie-Louise Pleiss in Germany and had a brief career in yé-yé, her best song being a cover of the Goffin-King classic He's In Town, released as Tu La Revois (Columbia 7" 1965). I've already posted The Rockin' Berries British hit of the song, and promised then to post this version. Absolutely beautiful. Enjoy!

Next up, The Beach Boys and a late return of form for Brian Wilson with the classic 'Til I Die, from their seventeenth studio album Surf's Up (Brother/Reprise 1971).

Colin Blunstone came to fame as member of 60s British pop group The Zombies, famous for She's Not There. He left in 1969, and this is his fourth single, a cover of the Denny Laine song Say You Don't Mind ( Epic 7" 1972).

Loose Tooth are a modern pop trio from Melbourne Australia, and this is Lonely (Hardly Art 7"/digital 2020), a split single with Chastity Belt. Buy here: Lonely.

We conclude with a brace from 60s British supergroup Cream. Firstly, their second single I Feel Free (Reaction 7" 1966), then we conclude with Badge (Polydor 7" 1968), also on their fourth and final album, the appropriately named Goodbye (Polydor 1968). Until next week ...
