In 1965 Mike Hurst had quickly established a reputation for himself as an independent producer and he took The Favourite Sons to Pye Studios in the centre of London. In little more than an afternoon, they had recorded both the band's R & B/soul covers and a couple of Mike's own compositions, making a total 12 tracks in all.

Mike was euphoric and felt that the band had something distinctly Mod and British in their recorded output and he quickly placed a single with Mercury 'That Drivin' Beat' b/w 'Walkin' Walkin'' which now changes hands at £60 per copy!

Sadly, within weeks Mike became focused on his new discovery Cat Stevens and there was little time for his earlier protégées, they quickly drifted into obscurity.

This album is released for the first time on CD and is a glowing testament to this energetic young band. Informative liner notes by Jon 'Mojo' Mills
