Years before they became synonymous with burning incense and on the record shelf of every self-proclaimed Flower Child, The Moody Blues were part of that British Invasion of the 1964-1965 period which borrowed heavily from Motown and the Soul genre of Urban America. Their first huge hit, the one that established The Moody Blues on a worldwide basis was the Larry Banks penned Soul classic Go Now, which was a moderate hit for Bessie Banks in 1964, but with The Moodies it was pure gold.
The version of Go Now which we're playing tonight was recorded live for the BBC program Saturday Club on April 17, 1965. I don't believe it's been available commercially anywhere so quite possibly you get to hear it here first (aside from hardcore collectors).
