By the time of Blue Mink's fourth album, Only When I Laugh, glam rock was supplanting the lighter pop sound of the previous few years. The associated single, "By The Devil (I Was Tempted)", written by Guy Fletcher and Doug Flett, only reached and the Top 10 single "Randy" in June 1973 was their last success. Their final album, Fruity, (January 1974) and the singles "Quackers" (January 1974) and "Get Up" (July 1974) failed, and the band split up that autumn after a farewell tour of the United States. Was Blue Mink's 1970 song 'Melting Pot' racist? (Phil Curtis, Life long love of music) Not necessarily racist (I don't think in the song any particular race is privileged), but to a modern listener, perhaps distinctly odd and rather disagreeable. I remember in the early 1970s being played this song in school assemblies by earnest, politically correct and well-intentioned teachers.
Blue Mink were a British six-piece pop group that existed from 1969 to 1974. Over that period they had six Top 20 hit singles in the UK Singles Chart, and released five studio based albums.
CHORUS What we need is a great big melting pot Big enough to take the world and all it's got Keep it stirring for a hundred years or more And turn out coffee-coloured people by the score
