The Fifth Order: Goin' Too Far/Walkin' Away (Diamond)

Well, it's time for another two-sider and what a two-sider it is. It's from 1966 and it's from a Cincinnati, Ohio group who first released this on the Counterpart label. When it scored big regionally (#1 in Columbus), Diamond picked it up for national release, but it didn't do as well. Whatever the case, this is classic garage pop. While it's not a screamer or anything like that, this is still damn great. Both sides are presented here and both are worth hearing. Also, check out the Flower Bomb Songs blog for more detailed information about this band.

I'm always terrified I'm going to smash bottle of perfume in my bag, so I reckon a travelo would be a good investment! I also love how your to-do list book has become a blogging notebook! xxx
