This 2004 BMI disc, “British Invasion: The Essential Album” isn’t showing up at wikipedia. This collection of 20 songs are like a dream walk down memory lane. It very difficult to choose one but if you want to hear the others follow the playlist and see what you can see on youtube.

Even though wiki doesn’t have info on the disc, it does have a list of every British group considered part of the British Invasion. I plan on doing a post or maybe a series of posts on these artists. Music on Planet Earth has been forever changed by these artists and they deserve the recognition.  I’d like to know if this list is accurate and/or comprehensive, so if you know the answer to my question, please let me know.  Pretty please!

I chose track 4, “Here Comes My Baby” because it has such a sweet memory of when I used to have the Cat Stevens’ album, “Matthew and Son.” The Tremeloes do a wonderful job of it.

Per wikipedia:
It was first recorded and released as a single by The Tremeloes in January 1967, and became a hit in the UK, Canada, and U.S. at numbers 4 7, and 13, respectively, from The Tremeloes’ from the album Here Come The Tremeloes.

“Here Comes My Baby” is a pop song written by Cat Stevens. It appeared on Stevens’ album Matthew and Son, released in March 1967 (Stevens had recorded the song on February 1, 1967). Stevens’ original lyrics began “In the midnight moonlight I’ll / Be walking a long and lonely mile.”

Yo La Tengo covered the song on their 1990 album, Fakebook. It was also covered by The Mavericks, whose version peaked at number 42 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart in 1999. Turin Brakes released their cover version as a B-side to their single, “Something In My Eye”. Most cover versions (including that by Yo La Tengo) sing “In the midnight moonlight hour.”

I’m including The Tremeloes’ and the Cat Stevens’ versions.

In the midnight moonlight
I’ll be walking a long and lonely mile,
And every time I do,
I keep seeing this picture of you

Here comes my baby, here she comes now,
And-a it becomes as no surprise to me
With another guy,

Well, here comes my baby, here she comes now,
Walking with a love,
With a love that’s oh so fine
Never to be mine, no matter how I try,

You’ll never walk alone,
And you’re forever talking on the phone
I try to call you names,
But every time it comes out the shame

Here comes my baby…

Songwriters: Cat Stevens

    Love the Tremeloes version because that is the one I’m accustomed to…but the Cat Stevens original is very good. Awesome song and an excellent collection. Great songs in that package.

          if you go to youtube you’ll see a cat stevens now singing it live, which sounds better than the one on matthew and son. his voice has aged well.
