EPISODE SIX - MORNING DEW



EPISODE SIX - "Morning Dew" / "Sunshine Girl" (Pye 7N.17330) June 1967

Episode Six had previously released several singles but none of them reached the Top Fifty. The group had high hopes that their version of "Morning Dew" would provide them with their breakthrough hit and the record certainly had the attention of the Pirate Radio Stations.

Despite this push and an article in renowned music publication "Beat Instrumental" Episode Six suffered another disappointment.

"Morning Dew"
has been recorded by many artists and groups over the years. Most people think that Tim Rose wrote the song but this is contested by Canadian singer songwriter Bonnie Dobson who claimed that she wrote the tune back in the early 1960s.

Bonnie Dobson did not receive a credit on the Episode Six Pye label although she does receive co-writer credit on my US Compass label release. I have taken a photo of this label too.
