MORE INFO

I'm Not Sayin' was the first original single release by Andrew Loog Oldhamís Immediate Records in August 1965. Written by Gordon Lightfoot and produced by Oldham, the song features a haunting vocal by Nico, backed by beautiful orchestration arranged and conducted by David Whittaker with The Rolling Stonesí Brian Jones on guitar with Jimmy Page. Two promotional films were shot by Peter Whitehead, one featuring Nico wandering through Londonís West India Docks in 1965, an area long since changed. The song was chosen by Morrissey as a Desert Island Discs choice on BBC Radio Four. The gatefold sleeve features photography by Gered Mankowitz from the original recording session. The original b-side The Last Mile was a co-write between Oldham and the-then Immediate Recordsí musical director, Jimmy Page. Even as early as 1965, the multi-talents of the future Yardbirds and Led Zeppelin maestro were apparent: as well as guitars, Page also produced, arranged and conducted the song
