Deeper Than The Ocean
The Mayfields were always at a disadvantage as they came from Salisbury in Dorset, now Salisbury may be famous for many things, actually it isn't apart from having the cathedral with the tallest spire in England, but being a hotbed for bands isn't one of them. In their brief existence I saw them several times supporting the likes of The Las and The Pooh Sticks and blowing both of them offstage. The band released two 7" singles, a flexidisc and had a few other songs on various compilation tapes before disappearing from whence they came. Two of today's songs are from their 7" on the Ambition label, the other 7" was on BusStop, while "Seasons Pass" comes from a tape so isn't that hi-fi but is still listenable.
