Over to 1960s Holland tonight. The Motions had been around since 1964/65, first as a Beat group, later as a successful Pop band and still later, embracing Psychedelia as so many other bands did at the time.
They had a good degree of success in their native Holland and their reputation was good throughout the rest of Europe. It was the U.S. where they couldn't get arrested, despite a big push by Philips in the U.S. and a lot of promotion. It all came to naught and eventually The Motions called it a day in 1971.
Tonights track, Slow Motion is an instrumental off their 1969 album Electric Baby (take a wild guess what they were embracing when they recorded that). The Motions were pretty polished and had a good reputation even to the point of having some of their material produced by Scott Walker (of The Walker Brothers).
But still, all the help in the world isn't going to work if the audience just isn't that into you. And the U.S. was not into The Motions.
Too bad. Can't win 'em all.
