Song of the Day – “Silence is Golden” – The Tremeloes

In early 1962 Decca Records was looking for a new band to record and auditioned two bands. They went with the Tremeloes, and the other band was lost to obscurity. The Beatles? Maybe you’ve heard of them?

It’s Rick West’s birthday. West (born Westwood) is the lead guitarist for the Tremeloes, and he also sings lead on this, their biggest hit. I don’t know who’s singing backup, but they hit notes that are barely within the range of human hearing.
