Best Record by an Old Etonian?



This came up a lot in Michael Bracewell's "Roxy" book. It was the first single Brian Ferry bought - he said he was captivated by its sound.

Produced by Joe Meek but listed as a George Martin production - Martin says he just "signed it off".

Famously the inspiration for The Beatles "Lady Madonna" after Paul [quoting YouTube comment] "...played it in the studio just as kind of a scat-fun."
