I'll Never Get Over You

Recorded: 16-05-63.  Gordon Mills, 1963

Johnny Kidd (vocals) - Mick Green (lead) - Johnny Spence (bass) - Frank Farley (drums)

Over six months since their last release and something special was required to bring the band back into mass appeal.  Manager Gordon Mills had recorded his song in a Buddy Holly-ish version before passing it on to Kidd & Co.  Once done, EMI unbelievably thought that the track could be improved and roped in session lead guitarist "Big" Jim Sullivan (who did version 2 of "Please Don't Bring Me Down") to try out lead guitar duties.  Thankfully, any "improvements" were deemed unnecessary, allowing Mick Green's unique talent to be justifiably heard far and wide.  The bands' economical power turned what could have been an ordinary pop tune into a Beat Classic during the summer of 1963 when it stormed into the top five - a remarkable turn of fortune.  Just one thing - is Green's guitar subtly dual-tracked here and there?
