LOVE POTION No 09 (A tribute to The Searchers)

The Searchers are an English beat group, which emerged as part of the 1960s Merseybeat scene along with the Beatles, the Hollies, the Fourmost, the Merseybeats, the Swinging Blue Jeans, and Gerry and the Pacemakers. The band's hits include a remake of the Drifters' 1961 hit, "Sweets for My Sweet"; remakes of Jackie DeShannon's "Needles and Pins" and "When You Walk In The Room"; an original song written for them, "Sugar and Spice"; the Orlons' "Don't Throw Your Love Away"; and a cover of the Clovers' "Love Potion No. 9". They were the second group from Liverpool, after the Beatles, to have a hit in the United States when "Needles and Pins" charted during the first week of March 1964. (From Wikipedia)

The Searchers - Junto com os Beatles e Gerry and the Pacemakers, foi uma das bandas precursoras do ‘merseybeat’, que era o estilo de ‘rock’ predominante em Liverpool na primeira metade dos anos 60. Seus maiores êxitos ocorreram entre 1963 e 1965. Depois dos Beatles, foi a primeira banda ‘pop’ de Liverpool a fazer sucesso nos EUA. A grupo atual só conta com um dos integrantes da formação original, John McNally. (CASS abr/2009)
