Let The Joybells Ring is tucked away on a 1967 b-side and towards the end of The Majority Decca Years 1965-68 2009 Rev-Ola cd reissue. This is a soaring pop song with tubular bells and an epic, surprising middle break. Ivor Raymonde is credited with producing and arranging the song, applying his Dusty Springfield and Walker Brothers treatments to the Majority sound with brilliant results. Unfortunately, the song was not a hit for the band and remains on the fringes of 60s pop awareness.
