Biddu - groovy kind of love - Biddu - Groovy Kind Of Love (Vinyl) at Discogs

Jack McGraw, who ran the London Screen Gems offices, thought the Wine/Bayer-Sager song was a perfect match for the new group The Mindbenders (previously the backing group for Wayne Fontana , who had recently left the band) and especially their Guitarist, who now became their new Lead Vocalist, Eric Stewart . The band recorded their version of "A Groovy Kind of Love" in 1965. They liked the result so much that they included the song on their first album without Fontana, The Mindbenders (US title "A Groovy Kind of Love") and released the song to radio as their debut single. It reached #2 in the UK the week of January 19–26, 1966 and it also hit #2 in the United States on the Billboard Hot 100 for 2 weeks in late May and early June 1966. The song features a female backing chorus, and they sing the words "You and me" and the repeated title towards the end of each verse of the song. Eric Stewart went on to co-found the British Art/Pop band, 10cc .
