THE FORTUNES : Here Comes That Rainy Day Feeling Again (1971)

R.I.P. Rod Allen (1944 - 2008)

Well, it was SUPPOSED to rain! Either way, another dead musician. Rod Allen was a member of The Fortunes, one of the numerous British Invasion bands that followed in the wake of The Beatles. He died of liver cancer at age 63.

This track was a bit of a comeback for the group as they entered the 70s, guaranteeing their place on the oldies circuit. Good harmonies, catchy melodies, and strong vocals. A hit!

Song: "Here Comes That Rainy Day Feeling Again"
Single A-side (Capitol) 1971

Rod Allen : vocals, bass
Shel Macrae : vocals, guitar
Barry Pritchard : guitar (R.I.P. 1944 - 1999)
Andy Brown : drums

Get it here : Here Comes That Rainy Day Feeling Again
