Billy Nicholls - Would You Believe - 1968

Billy Nicholls - Would You Believe - 1968

Would You Believe is an album by Billy Nicholls recorded in 1968.

I'm kinda diggin it right now. The vinyl just sold for like $9,000,000 doll hairs on ebay.
thats alot of money

Billy Nicholls was originally hired by Andrew Loog Oldham as a staff writer for Oldham's Immediate Records. Oldham was so entranced by the Beach Boys' 1966 album, Pet Sounds that he enlisted songwriter Billy Nicholls to record a British response, which became this largely forgotten album. The Small Faces' Steve Marriott can be heard very prominently on "Would You Believe?", despite Oldham's attempts to drown them out with heavy orchestration. Oldham wanted this to be the British Pet Sounds but financial difficulties with the label caused it to be shelved (it only achieved an initial promotional run of 100 copies, as Immediate IMCP009) before it ever hit the streets.
