Robert Searle… They were a pretty good pop harmony group.Two songs they recorded were Clear White Light and Hiroshima .

Andy Knight… So who were Shades of Innocence? Were they local?

Alan Esdaile… Can’t find anything on Shades Of Innocence. Anyone? All I could find was a band called Shades Of Black who came from Ashford, Kent.

Andy Qunta… I remember Wishful Thinking! Really good!

Colin Norton… I remember playing a support gig to Wishful Thinking at the Cobweb. They had their Decca Live album out at the time and a single called “Step By Step”. Nice bunch of guys!
