(Vocal group, 1966–present)

As Dean Ford and The Gaylords, this Glaswegian outfit struggled until a change of name and a subsequent hit in Holland with 1967’s psychedelic ‘I See The Rain’. Tenacity was rewarded even more the following June when they cracked the British Top 10 at last with ‘Lovin’ Things’ and began a four-year chart run. The twin peaks of this high summer of Scottish pop were 1968’s reggaefied ‘Ob-la-di Ob-la-da’, a Beatles cover, at No. 1, and ‘Reflections Of My Life’, their only major US chartbuster.
