40 Years Ago This Month: Say You Don't Mind
[Buy The Album]
Former Zombies vocalist Colin Blunstone returned from a few years of selling insurance to hit UK #15 in mid February of 1972 with this gorgeous string laden cover of Denny Laine's 1967 single. Yes, that Denny Laine. Former Moodys. Future Wings. ( see Denny's version below).
The string quartet was arranged by Chris Gunning who would go on to win awards for composing film and TV soundtracks. "Say You Don't Mind" comes from the 1971 album One Year, which also features "She Loves The Way They Love Her" and "Caroline Goodbye", both recorded with his old Zombies bandmates.
