Late January 1975

After the success of the band's fourth album "Merry Christmas", the band decided to take a break from their classic rock and roll roots, and record an album of heavier numbers. No singles yielding any new compositions were intended to accompany this album however. The band had several popular songs from their album "Merry Christmas" so they would release some subsequent singles containing some of those songs instead.

The band's decisions were not unchangeable, and they were prepared to alter any of their current plans if they felt that any of the songs recorded for their fifth album were deemed suitable for a single release.

24th January 1975

This was the band's first official recording session for their fifth album. The band members of Cherry Beat had decided that they would not be needing their music supervisor Chudley Maron to serve as their producer for this album, but he would still serve as their music supervisor. On this day the band recorded a new composition. "The End of the Beginning" was written primarily by Peter McDonald, with input from Sam Whitby.

The band also recorded a cover of Mars Bonfire's composition "Born to Be Wild", originally performed by Steppenwolf. However Cherry Beat's cover of the song was not intended for release on their fifth album.

The band recorded an original composition on this day. "Prostitutes of Nature" was written primarily by Sam Whitby, with input from Peter McDonald.

The song was considered to be one of Cherry Beat's most controversial efforts, and was banned from certain radios, because of the word "prostitute". In some parts of the world, the title of the song was shortened to "'Of Nature" to reduce offence.

15th July 1975

After recording ten tracks for their 1975 hard rock album at Oxford Studios, the band members of Cherry Beat, with their producer and music supervisor Chudley Maron, were back in Dohrn Studios to record two original compositions, starting the sessions early for the band's sixth album in 1976.

"Think" which was written solely by Peter McDonald, was admittedly a ripoff of The Beatles' "Yesterday (Beatles song)". "Jeep", a composition by Peter McDonald, with input from Sam Whitby was considered to be Peter's attempt at writing a composition in the same style as Paul McCartney and Wings' song Jet.

Neither of these songs were completed on this day, instead they would not be completed until 1976 when the majority of the sessions for the band's sixth album began.

23rd July 1975

The band members were in the studio again recording two more original compositions on this day. "Soldier Rhymes" had been written solely by Sam Whitby, while Peter McDonald had helped him to polish off the rough edges of his composition "Ticket to Paris".

Neither of these songs were completed on this day, instead they would not be completed until 1976 when the majority of the sessions for the band's sixth album began. The title of the song "Ticket to Paris" is a play on The Beatles' song "Ticket to Ride".

The title of the song "Soldier Rhymes" was inspired by the song "Soldier of Love (Lay Down Your Arms)" which was originally recorded by Arthur Alexander.

30th July 1975

The band members were in the studio again recording two more original compositions on this day. "Daymare" was a joint effort between Peter McDonald and Sam Whitby, while "Do the Ronde Ronde" was written by Torquil Dohrn. Neither of these songs were completed on this day, instead they would not be completed until when the majority of the sessions for the band's sixth album began. The title of the song "Daymare" is a play on the term "Nightmare", only it's in the day time.

"Do the Ronde Ronde" was inspired by Jeff Barry and Ellie Greenwich's song "She Hangs Out", originally recorded by The Monkees. The music style of "Do the Ronde Ronde" was inspired by The Crystals' song "Da Doo Ron Ron (When He Walked Me Home)" written by Jeff Barry, Ellie Greenwich, and Phil Spector.
