The Masters Apprentices – Elevator Driver (1968)

With Astor pressing for a new single, the band turned to their friend Brian Cadd of The Groop, who had already written a number of songs for his own band and for other artists, including Johnny Farnham. Cadd presented them with, “Silver People” co-written with The Groop’s Max Ross, which was re-titled as “Elevator Driver” and released in February 1968 as their fourth single. Accompanied by afilm clip and a full-colour promotional poster. The band had to pay for these as Astor Records refused to pay for ‘extravagant’ promotional items. “Elevator Driver” provided them with a Top 30 hit, and kept the momentum going.
