Magic Of Love

Kidd-Dale-Robinson, 1960.  Recorded: 05-09-60

Johnny Kidd (vocals) - Alan Caddy (rthm) - Brian Gregg (bass) - Clem Catinni (drums) - Joe Moretti (lead)

Joe Moretti had been a member of Vince Taylor's Playboys, and featured on their best-known record "Brand New Cadillac".  After his short recording stint with the Pirates Moretti went on to play lead guitar on Nero and the Gladiators chart debut "In The Hall Of The Mountain King" / "The Trek To Rome" on Decca.  He went on to much successful session work, including notable sides by Jet Harris & Tony Meehan and the twangy lead guitar on Tom Jones' no1 smash "It's Not Unusual", plus a plethora of others.  The writer of the latter number mentioned was Gordon Mills, manager of both Jones and Kidd.  I wonder what that number would have sounded like in the hands of the "Admiral of Beat"?

Well I would never have kissed
I would never be like this
If it hadn't been for that old magic called love

We-ll the pain in my heart
That I feel when I'm apart
That's a trick of that old magic called love

     Well, you make me feel this way
     I just can't wait all day
     You're tearin' out my heart
     And baby how di
d the whole thing start

The
re, will come a day
When it passes your way
That's a trick of that old magic called love

(instrumental break)

     You make me feel this way
     I just can't wait all day
     You're tearin' out my heart
     And baby how did the whole thing start

There, will come a day
When it passes your way
Well you can miss that old magic called love

Well, kisses, and the moonlight, that's love
Hmm, that's magic, and it's kisses, it's love
(improvise to fade)
