ST. LOUIS UNION – ENGLISH TEA

ST. LOUIS UNION – \”English Tea\” (alternative version) 1966

St. Louis Union were a short lived mod group from the mid \’60s. They had a hit with a tame version of The Beatles ballad \”Girl\”, however, on another level is their fab (mostly) instrumental \”English Tea\” housed to the brim with soulful vocals, way-out hammond with lashings of fuzz….. killer!
 
This version was never released but St Louis Union performed it on 1966 British film \”The Ghost Goes Gear\” and contains much more fuzz guitar. The single version, on the back of April 1966 single \”Behind The Door\” uses saxophone.

Find it on \”Mod Meeting\” Volume 1

  1. The lead singer Tony Cassidy was my Uncle. In later years he would become quite agitated if he heard himslef singing anthing from the Union. He became a headmaster at a leading Cheshire girls grammar school & past away from cancer a few years ago
