Step By Step Wishful Thinking Decca F12499

Step By Step was recorded by the band's original line-up of Roy Daniels (vcls), Terry New (lead gtr), Roger Charles (bass) and Brian Allen (drms). Wishful Thinking had two other singles on the Big L playlists for June 26th,'66, and April 16th, 1967, (by the second band line-up) but the band made no musical impression till 1969, when their forth line-up achieved an overseas hit, Hiroshima. Taken from their album of the same name, the single was a huge hit in Germany. Full Wishful Thinking profile is on the Fab for 16th April '67.
