Product Description

Britain’s counterpart to the US’s 5th Dimension, sunshine pop supremos DESIGN not only scored success with a slew of acclaimed albums in the early to mid ’70s, but became the ‘go-to’ guest band for many of the UK’s most popular, celebrity-hosted TV shows, including those of Tommy Cooper, Benny Hill, and The Two Ronnies.

In his notes for this 50th Anniversary compilation culled from their albums ‘Design’, ‘Tomorrow Is So Far Away’, Day of the Fox’ and ‘In Flight’ , Kingsley Abbott writes:

“For most of the sixties, any British groups with an interest in vocal harmonies looked first to what was happening on the American charts.

“As the decade rolled on, British groups were producing music that could stand shoulder to shoulder with their American cousins.

“This collection of Design’s recordings proves exactly how improved they had become. It is evident from their dipping and soaring vocals that Design were at least the Americans’ equals.”
