Turning Point - Wave Goodbye (1985)


b/w - The Thread

I'll be honest the A-side leaves me a bit cold (80's pop), the flip is why I've posted it (Nice 60's influenced psyche / beat)

The Essex (South Benfleet?) based band were

Phil Bartlett (voc)
Paul Rawlings (Lead Guitar / voc)
Tony Dawson (Rhythm Guitar)
Martin Dawson (Bass)
Steve Osmaston (Drums)

It was produced by Derek Martin & Recorded at Diploma Studios, Bicknacre in rural Essex, - a small 24-track analogue facility owned by Jim Woodford, whose step-son Darren was chief engineer [later the lead guitarist with Sunscreem]
& was released on Essex label Rambert Records (Jeff Merrifield's creation to primarily showcase the NWOBHM band Warrior)
