The Orchids - Gonna Make Him Mine

From a Beatles episode of Ready Steady Go!

The Beatles later criticized an Orchids track ("Love Hit Me") on Juke Box Jury as being too derivative of Motown girl groups.

John: Just a big con - a pinch from The Crystals and Ronettes.

Paul: It's good for a British record.

Ringo: It'll sell a few, but not many.

George: I'd rather have British groups pinch from The Crystals than the other stuff.

Unbeknownst to them at the time, the Orchids were in the audience and were pointed out by the TV host.
