Searchin'


"I sat still for about five minutes and then my pipe got too hot. I put it down, looked at my strap watch, and got up to switch on a small radio in the corner beyond the end of the desk. When the A.C. hum died down, the last tinkle of a chime came out of the horn, then a voice was saying..."


Raymond Chandler, from Trouble Is My Business

"Searchin'" -- an all-time fave, and a staple of the early-60s British beat groups. The Hollies first real hit, Spencer Davis Group did a fine version, The Beatles did it for their audition ... wonderful ... thanks!
