Hopscotch – Look At The Lights Go Up b/w Andwella – Hold Onto Your Mind – Measured Mile UK 7″

The latest 45 on Bob Stanley’s MEASURED MILE label is another double-sided gem, this time picking up on a pair of terrific turn-of-the-70s acts whose original 7″ singles are now both hard to find and horribly expensive.

HOPSCOTCH’s ‘Look At The Lights Go Up’ is a terrific mod mover, and original copies now sell for £300. The group were a precursor to the Average White Band – hence their ability to fill a dancefloor – and their one and only single was arranged by the great John Cameron (Kes, Psychomania, sundry KPM library classics).

ANDWELLA were a heavier offshoot of psych act Andwella’s Dream whose “Love And Poetry” album is a four-figure job. ‘Hold On To Your Mind’ is a fabulous raver, reminiscent of early 70s free festivals where the dew has soaked the bottom of your flares and the best way to forget about that is by dancing. Once a funky rock obscurity, it is now in-demand thanks to being played out by the likes of Bill Brewster.

Another stone classic from Measured Mile!
