FlinterFile: The Searchers- Needles And Pins
In 1964, The Searchers recorded a cover of Jackie DeShannon. She did not have a big hit with the song, since it spread like a wave across the USA. The Searchers heard it in Germany, when Cliff Bennett performed the song. They thought it would be a good song for their next single, and recorded it with two 6-string guitars, which, by accidentely leaving on an echo-switch, sounded like a 12-string guitar. The result was good enough: the song hit number 13 in the US and number 1 in the UK. Enjoy
