On this day… 19 Aug 1965

Fifth Avenue and Nico both released records

Today sees two releases on Immediate Records: the first being Fifth Avenue, which I produced, with a version of the Pete Seeger / Byrds ‘The Bells of Rhymney’ and my composition; ‘Just Like Any One Would Do’ and also Nico’s 'I'm Not Sayin (the Gordon Lightfoot song, produced by Andrew Oldham).

The b-side was titled ‘The Last Mile’, produced and written by me. I routined with Nico in her muse flat that she had during her stay in London. Editorial note: he’s keeping all the details to himself!

This was before Nico was to go to New York and become part of the magical Velvet Underground.
