THE CRACKERS - IT HAPPENS ALL THE TIME



CRACKERS - "Honey Do" / "It Happens All The Time" (Fontana TF 995) January 1969

This rarity by Crackers were The Merseys is disguise! Quite why they changed their name for this single, which turned out to be their last, is unknown. My educated guess is simply because as The Merseys their records since "Sorrow" had more or less been ignored. Maybe their name was passe in 1969 and so a change to a more suitable one was required.
Sadly for The Merseys nothing changed. "Honey Do" flopped and they were no more.

"Honey Do" was recently compiled on the CD only "Fairytales Can Come True" Volume #2. The flip and for me, more interesting side, is the soothing pop tune "It Happens All The Time" written by Tony Crane.
