0014 I Didn't Know I Loved You (Til I Saw You Rock & Roll) (Purity)

from by Fast Cakes



Track 0014: I DIDN'T KNOW I LOVED YOU (TILL I SAW YOU ROCK AND ROLL) (Glitter/Leander) 2:41 (PURITY) (c.March 1973)
Musicians: John Hodgson – piano, backing vocals, kazoo, Michael Charlton – drums, lead vocals
Recorded: Langley Studios (room 1) mono cassette recorder
And so we move into 1973. Purity are still together, but girls start to have an influence on the band. I met Denise, my future wife, on February 3rd, and Michael had a succession of girlfriends around this time. Purity recording sessions were becoming less frequent as a result, but we found time to cover the now disgraced Gary Glitter's smash hit of the time.
A new instrument was introduced, a kazoo, purchased from the post office nearby.
THINGS TO LISTEN OUT FOR: Towards the end you can hear a knock on the door as Michael's grandmother interrupts yet again, and the song breaks down as a result.
