DAVEY SANDS & THE ESSEX – \”Advertising Girl\” / \”Without You I\’m Nothing\” (CBS 202620) March 1967

Mod beat sound with a \”She\’s About A Mover\” organ riff….\”Advertising Girl\” is a song about the obsession a lad has with a girl who appears in posters promoting soup, soap and cars while wearing a purple mini-skirt and having manageable fair hair. They don\’t write them like this anymore!

Davey Sands & the Essex released an earlier single \”Please Be Mine\” / \”All The Time\” on Decca during June 1965. Both sides were produced by Brian Poole and Alan Blakley from The Tremeloes. On that particular disc the line-up was:

Ian Warner (drums)
Howard Schaffer (lead guitar)
Chip Hawkes (bass)
Chris Cochran (keyboards)
Davey Sands (vocals)

Chip Hawkes later joined The Tremeloes so I doubt that he was part of their 1967 single.
