C mentioned today's track over at the WYCRA collective's bit a couple of Saturday's ago in the comments for The Saturday Song Challenge and I have to thank her because I had forgotten all about this brilliant slice of British Mod/Psych from 1968. It was the b-side of Path Through The Forest, the first of group's two singles. I think Mr Weller may have been listening to this track prior to writing That's Entertainment as the intro bears an uncanny resemblance to it, well to me anyway. I once read somewhere that this was a cover of a Paul Revere and The Raiders song which is a load of bollocks as the track Gone by them is a cover itself of a country song from the Fifties*.
The Factory - Gone
* C in the comments has posted a link to the Paul Revere song Gone Movin' On and it would appear that the Factory did indeed cover Paul Revere and The Raiders and therefore not for the first time it is me talking bollocks. Thanks C
