Over the top with P. J. Proby and friends

Here’s another single that was released for the christmas market, but isn’t actually very christmassy at all.  From 1996, P. J. Proby teams up with Marc Almond (who also co-produces with regular collaborator Neal Whitmore) and the musicians from orchestral pop outfit My Life Story for a cover of the 1967 Little Anthony And The Imperials US hit “Yesterday Has Gone”, and it’s as insanely overblown as you would expect from that line-up.

The B-sides are both new songs written specially for Proby: Almond and Whitmore contribute “Devil In Red Velvet”, while “Pain in Your Heart” is written and produced by Bob Stanley and Pete Wiggs of Saint Etienne.
