Alexander Bell was the pseudonym for Robin Hunt, lead singer for the Flies, who put out a single under the assumed name for CBS in 1967, "Alexander Bell Believes" b/w "A Hymn...With Love." Both sides were very much in the 1967 British just-this-side-of-twee harmonized pop-psychedelic style, with peace-and-love lyrical concerns tempered by a little melodic and vocal influence from bands like the Kinks and the Zombies. It's been reported that Jimmy Page was a session guitarist on the single, though his guitar doesn't seem to have a prominent role. Both sides of the single were issued on the Flies anthology Complete Collection 1965-1968.
