At the top of their game, Everyone knew this song, but few knew who sang it. Made famous by the movie, which I saw. Almost a perfect voice.

Saw it when "Georgie Girl" opened at the local movie house too--1967?

And another good one from The Seekers two years earlier...1965

Yes LK a very beautiful song.

But speaking of almost perfection, this is another female voice.
Todays Divas do not even come close to Dusty.

Back in the halcyon days of the 60s I (and I was not alone in this) decided that anything that came out on Elektra had to be brilliant and, to be fair, this often turned out to be so. But not always, though I can't think of any actual disasters. One of the not-too-terrifics was the so-called Elektra supergroup, Rhinoceros. I bought their first album on release, but didn't bother with either of the subsequent two. Maybe just a bit too soulful/R&B for my psychedelic tastes at the time? Anyway, if you haven't heard them, see what you think with one of their (IMO) better numbers off that first album:

MK--Yes...Dusty is the best of the British Blue eyed soul. Still have an original vinyl with You Don't Own Me ....I Only Want To Be With You...

Dusty In Memphis was considered one of, if not the best albums of the year=1969




DT--I have Rhimoceros' first LP...bought it when it came out. Love it!! The cover is one of my favorite Elektra jackets.




One reviewer commented, "Despite the fact that the band could not live up to the expectations that were raised by Elektra Records' publicity machine, Rhinoceros' contributions to rock still deserve more credit than subsequent rock histories give it."

Paul A. Rothchild, then Elektra Records' talent scout and house producer, conceived the idea, with fellow producer Frazier Mohawk (formerly Barry Friedman), to individually sign talented young musicians and then put them together in a group. Mohawk had been instrumental in forming Buffalo Springfield through coordinating band membership, though the establishment of Rhinoceros involved a more formal third party role. The concept of band formation by third parties was popular at the time. Such bands as The Monkees (for whom Stephen Stills had auditioned, prior to being encouraged by Mohawk to form Buffalo Springfield), and Moby Grape were established in this manner during the 1966-1967 period.

Rothchild and Mohawk initially invited twelve musicians to audition in September 1967, at Mohawk's house in Laurel Canyon. Included in this initial group were Doug Hastings (guitar) and Alan Gerber (keyboards and vocals). A second audition was held at a Los Angeles motel in November 1967, where approximately twenty musicians were reviewed. After this meeting, John Finley (vocals) and Danny Weis (guitar) were chosen to work with Hastings and Gerber. Finley and Hodgson were both former members of Jon and Lee & The Checkmates, a band which Rothchild had expressed an interest in signing as early as 1965 that had broken up in September 1967.

Weis had been an original member of Iron Butterfly and played on their debut album. Hastings had been a member of Seattle's renowned Daily Flash, and briefly served as Neil Young's replacement in Buffalo Springfield, during one of Young's departures from the group.[citation needed] Other members of The Daily Flash were invited to audition for Rhinoceros, though only Hastings was chosen.

Weis then suggested former Iron Butterfly bandmate Jerry Penrod as the bass player for Rhinoceros; his suggestion was accepted. Former Checkmate keyboard player Michael Fonfara was then invited to join the lineup. Fonfara had joined The Electric Flag in mid-November 1967, for sessions and a brief tour of the US northeast and California. During mid-December, he ran into Finley and Hodgson at the Tropicana Motel in Los Angeles, and was encouraged by Finley to sign on to the Rhinoceros project. Based on Finley's recommendation, Fonfara was brought into Rhinoceros, following the completion of his obligations to The Electric Flag. John Keleihor, former drummer for The Daily Flash, contributed to some of the group's early recordings, but departed early on. The final member chosen, in early 1968, was Billy Mundi, former drummer for The Mothers of Invention (who auditioned for the Buffalo Springfield--they really wanted him, but he left for Rhinoceros. So Dewy sat in for the duration.). -wiki

Wintergatan - SommarfŚgel (Butterfly) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SBK2AF-NdVA&list=FLeMGyFUPva5q_eFrsFP3zJQ&index=2

Its sort of electronica/ambient but with real instruments.Discovered them via an interview with Aurora. She was asked of her favourite songs and she mentioned this and also Leonard Cohen the partisan. Just shows what a wonderful taste in music she has :-)
