Editorial Reviews

(CD DigiPac with 24-page booklet, 21 tracks. Playing time: 54:22) Their second album, adequately enhanced. It includes nine Fontana/UK bonus tracks, the hard to come by Pomus/Spector single B-side First Taste Of Love and the even more rare Walking On Air EP (1965). This CD also includes the Top 20 smash It's Just A Little Bit Too Late, and it features Eric Stewart on guitar (later of Hotlegs and 10cc fame). Songs by Burt Bacharach, Goffin/King, Leiber/Stoller, Chuck Berry and others, and a booklet with many photos and the band history.

Very few bands have a new album out though in the meantime they have ceased to exist, with new products of the individual musicians already in the shops. That's exactly what happened with the second album by Wayne Fontana & The Mindbenders. There was no chance to promote the record and, hence, no chart entrances were on the horizon. A real shame as this reissue shows. The album is packed with versatility, power and sensitivity. Cover versions by Gene Pitney, Willie Dixon among others get the unique Mindbenders treatment - and Wayne Fontana's interpretation of Van McCoy's I Remember Love is a smash. The fetching booklet includes many photos and documents the second half of the band's career. The CD includes nine extras: rare 1964/65 single B-sides and their last EP, Walking On Air, which is sought-after by collectors these days.

Given the indelible mark Wayne Fontana and the Mindbenders made with Clint Ballard Jr.'s "Game of Love" (#2 in the UK, chart-topping in the U.S.) it's surprising just how short they ran as a unit. Nine singles, two albums, and by 1965 they'd gone their separate ways. In fact, their run ended as their singles ("It's Just a Little Bit Too Late" from this second LP and "She Needs Love," included on this reissue as a bonus) failed to capitalize on their breakthrough and Fontana's solo career was realized more quickly than had previously been expected. It's reported that he informed the band of his departure as he walked off stage midway through an October 1965 live show. Fontana and the band continued on separately (the latter scoring quickly with Toni Wine and Carole Bayer Sager's "A Groovy Kind of Love"), and this second album, released three months after the split, was left to founder.

Fontana and the band had been pulling in different directions before the split - the former looking to highlight his singing, the latter (lead by guitarist and future 10cc founder, Eric Stewart) their instrumental abilities. The latter's versatility is highlighted in the range of songs tackled on this second album - a collection that was put together over a longer period of time than the single day afforded their debut. There are only two originals ("Like I Did" and "Long Time Comin'"), both mid-tempo beat numbers written by Fontana under his given name of Glyn Ellis. The rest of the album picks up songs from a talented array of American writers, including Leiber & Stoller, Gene Pitney, Chuck Berry, Van McCoy, Goffin & King, Willie Dixon and Burt Bacharach. The selections are typically UK-centric, including a UK hit ("Memphis, Tennessee") that was a non-charting U.S.

my review will be short and right to the point…my rating of 5 stars is based solely on the quality of the reproduction. I have close to 5,000 cd's. the reproduction on this cd rates in the top 99.9% of all my discs.
if only Bear family included the groups first 3 recording hello josephine, for you for you and little darlin as bonus tracks, I would have rated this cd a 10 star…..
