The Firestones – Something I Gotta Tell You / Take Your Time (Norway: Columbia GN 1794) 1967 ?

A Norwegian beat-group from Trondheim. They were composed of Ole Dragsten (guitar), Øystein Rian (guitar), Kjell Ekle (bass/voc), Atle Gjersvold (drms) and Leif Leinum (guitar).

The group lasted from 1964 to 68, and was featured on a Columbia compilation album “POP ‘67”  recorded live on a Battle of the Bands Finale on 19 February 1967. There were 14 groups and the Firestones played two songs : “I’ve Been Wrong” / “Here I Go Again”, two covers of the Hollies, proving they were a harmony group.

They also released the single : “Something I Gotta Tell You” / “Take Your Time” on the same label. They followed the Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick & Tich arrangement of the song, with an organ playing the melodic line.
This is the fourth cover of this Howard/Blaikley track, after the Honeycombs, Glenda Collins and Dave Dee & Co.
