The Symbols (US, 1968)

This Essex group is best known for their cover of The Ronettes Best Part Of Breaking Up, which was a minor hit. Originally known as Johnny Milton and The Condors, they had a distinctive four-part harmony sound. Their first 45, One Fine Girl, was a Van McCoy number produced by Mickie Most. Their other minor hit, was a cover of The Four Season's Bye Bye Baby. They caused a minor stir in the music press by disowning their album when it came out. Their final effort was an old Ronettes number. Mick Clarke was later in The Rubettes and Chas Wade had been in Rush / Tinkerbell's Fairydust.
