LOVE AND TEARS - Much Too Young

LOVE AND TEARS - Much Too Youg / Action Man (Intercord 1973)

This is not another version of the Vulcan’s song “Much Too Youg” (check Purepop blog,, it’s exactly the same!
In addition to this, Love And Tears’ works include three other singles, “Needles And Pins”, “Rock ‘n’ Roll Lullaby”, "Love Of Yesterday" and
one LP. Who knows if the Vulcan are the “fake” ones…
Having been produced by the German singer Micheal Holm, I guess they’re probably German too. Anyway, don’t miss the chance to hear again this great track. Enjoy!
