The best place to hear the recordings of Phoenix, AZ group Phil and the Frantics is via the mid 80s retrospective on Voxx Records, strange then, that I can\’t find my copy. Maybe I didn\’t even buy it back in the day but thought I had!
\’I Must Run\’ is almost 100% based on The Zombies song \’I Must Move\’ but nevertheless, it\’s still an awesome moody beat number with a great organ dominated sound. The flip \’Pain\’ is also a British Invasion styled tune.
According to \’Fuzz Acid & Flowers\’ \’I Must Run\’ was a sizable local hit which brought the group some notice, eventually gaining a touring slot with Peter & Gordon.
