The Cymbaline - Where Did Love Go Wrong


The Cymbaline - Where Did Love Go Wrong (The Cymbaline) Mercury MF 961 - 1966

La segunda de esas canciones cálidas de las que te hablaba es "Where Did Love Go Wrong". Está escondida en el tercer single de un grupo de Ilford, Essex, The Cymbaline. Grabado en 1966 y editado en Enero de 1967.

Entre 1965 y 1969 editaron siete singles para tres sellos diferentes - Pye, Mercury y Philips - sin conseguir el preciado éxito mayoritario, a pesar de tocar en directo regularmente. Algunas de sus canciones - "Coming Home Baby", "Matrimonial Fears" o "Fire" - han sido incluídas, más o menos recientemente, en algunos de los clásicos recopilatorios de canciones perdidas del beat y la psicodelia de los 60.

Pero, por algún oscuro motivo, la ternura y la melodía pura siempre han parecido asustar a los autores de dichas recopilaciones y, en consecuencia, "Where Did Love Go Wrong" - escrita por el propio grupo - permanece en el limbo de las canciones nunca reeditadas.

Aqui está. Anónimamente grande y brillante.

The second of those warm songs I was telling you about is "Where Did Love Go Wrong". It's hidden in the third single of a band from Ilford, Essex, The Cymbaline. Recorded in 1966 and released in January, 1967.

Between 1965 and 1969 they released seven singles for three different labels - Pye, Mercury and Philips - without having any big success, in spite of regularly playing live. Some of their songs - "Coming Home Baby", "Matrimonial Fears" or "Fire" - have been included, more or less recently, in some of those classic compilations of 60s beat and psych lost songs.

But, because of some dark reason, tenderness and pure melody have always seemed to scare the makers of those said compilations and, consequenlty, "Where Did Love Go Wrong" - written by the band themselves - remains in the limbo of never re-released songs.

Here it is. Anonymously great and shiny.
