Biography

The Young Idea were Tony Cox and Douglas MacCrae-Brown. They charted with the Beatles cover “With A Little Help From My Friends” and after five singles for Columbia an album (Music For Pleasure MFP 1225 / 1968) with twelve tracks was finally released. Most of the material was taken from the aforementioned 45s and it’s a shame that their best song “Colours Of Darkness” remained as a b-side of their top-ten hit. All in all this is a very good Pop album (“Just Look At The Rain”, “Room With A View” or “Mister Lovin’ Luggage Man” are great pop-psych tunes). The four “LP-only tracks” are more or less fillers, only “In Bond Street” reaches the standard of the other songs.

    At one point, there was a band called the young idea from merrimack, new hampshire, and seeing this made me super-excited because it was my first show ever. but when i look on google, there is a myspace page which says they are from north carolina. or something. does anyone have the recordings from the nh band?
