A drunken Saturday night post…


This lovely kitsch 70’s song is by a band called Dolphin and was released on Private Stock records in 1978. I don’t know much about Dolphin (I can’t even find a picture) but the few references to them on the internet describe them as a prog rock band. I wouldn’t have guessed that from this single; these guys make Barclay James Harvest sound like the Sex Pistols. And what the hell is a prog band doing signing to Private Stock, where you would normally expect to hear Frankie Valli singing My Eyes Adored You, anyway?

Whatever the answer, if you like your records with breathy vocals, flutes and strings and just a little bit camp give it a try.
