The Envoys EP (Pilgrim XPR 3048) 1967 UK *
Four more top-notch beat numbers. The sleek ‘Fever’ -like swagger of ‘Love Like Jesus’ opens side one, followed by ‘Danger’ with its deep secret-agent electric guitar and lyrics about how “you’re hangin’ just a heartbeat from hell”. ‘Mister Mighty’ begins the flip side with a stomping beat, while ‘Hallelujah’ closes the EP with a swinging enthusiastic melody (love those female backing vocals) Solid drumbeat and cool lead guitar that reminds me of bands like The Peacemakers and The Pebbles Handsome pic sleeve. Says on the back they began as a Sunday School party novelty item in 1963, then launched into church rallies, coffee bars, prisons, beat clubs, dance halls and cinemas.

A special thank you to Ed for providing the music.
