We start the year with our pop-psyche rarity from 1969. The Actress - A Good Job With Prospects, B-side of their sole release It's What You Give (CBS 7” 1969).
Cicada, a Taiwanese chamber orchestra with the delightful instrumental Dawn After Darkness, buy here.
The Nashville Teens were a British beat combo founded in Weybridge, Surrey in 1962. They were part of the wave of British bands to play in Hamburg, Germany, before going on to have a level of success in the United States. They were one of the first groups, along with The Spencer Davis Group, to be invited to play in Hungary in 1967 and have a very big and loyal fan base there up to this day. This is their most popular song, Tobacco Road (Decca 7” 1964).
Oliver - Good Morning Starshine (US: Jubilee 7” 1969 UK: CBS 7” 1969), from the musical Hair (1967). It was a No. 3 hit in the United States in July 1969 and a No. 6 hit in the United Kingdom in October 1969 for the singer Oliver. 
We conclude with a brace of promo films for The Beatles, the two brilliant U.K. singles from the LP Help! (Parlophone 1965), both written by john. They show the group’s humour wonderfully. First, Ticket to Ride (Parlophone 7" 1965), then Help! (Parlophone 7" 1965) itself. Until next week …
