THE BASKERVILLE HOUNDS - "Christmas Is Here" / "Make Me Your Man" (Tema 131) December 1965

This record appears to have been released with Christmas in mind during December 1965. "Christmas Is Here" is a beat carol but not something I'd want to listen to much, even at Christmas. At least the boys donned their favourite Beatles gear for the picture sleeve and shaped their hair like they were a gaggle of Paul McCartney's.

"Make Me Your Man" is the vinyl treat here. It's a Sir Douglas Quintet "She's About A Mover" inspired rocker with harmonica, Jagger influenced vocal delivery and farfisa organ frills. For some reason the song was used almost two years later as part of their Dot album from mid 1967.
