The Living Daylights

by Simon

Here’s a cool little mod pop psych tune from 1967. The band are the Living Daylights, the tune is called Always With Him. It’s a lovely little track, kind of Hollies do I Can See For Miles, with some gorgeous Leslie effected guitar, and a pulsating bass worth of Entwistle. And to cap it all, some great ba-ba ba’s!

So after some Google searching I was both surprised and not surprised at the same time to discover the bass was one Norman Watt-Roy, one of the best British bass players of all time, best known for his work with the Blockheads.

I love following paths to see how things don’t exist in a vacuum, they’re often linked backwards and forwards.
