The Betterdays formed in 1960, their first recording was an ep released on the Oak label which featured Hush Your Mouth,Here 'Tis and Cracking Up, their second was Honey What's Wrong b/w Don't Want That. Until now none of these recordings have ever been issued. It was much later, in 1965, when they actually recorded the single Don't Want That b/w Here 'Tis which were different versions to that on the Oak ep. Honey What's Wrong has been taken from the original acetate and is a raving version o the old Jimmy Reed number whilst Don't want That was the A side of the Betterdays' only single. The opening number on side two was the flipside. Hush Your Mouth has also been taken from an original acetate. Distributed By N.T.B Records.
