Wendy Rene – Bar-B-Q

Wendy Rene almost hopped on the same plane that took Otis Redding’s life along with several members from the Bar-Kays in 1967. But some time before that, let’s say, back in 1964 this little piece of soul…food came off the grill and is still delicious to hear today.

Jacques Dutronc – Les Gens Sont Fous

A nice little piece, more the fuzzed out garagey freakbeat style, from the renaissance french men. Dutronc not only worked as a musician, he also worked for vogue records, acted, and wrote songs for many other acts; ZouZou, Francoise Hardy,  & Cleo. You Dig?

“Astounding cover of the garage classic originally recorded in 1965. This is Maybelle’s 1967 version.
Just listen to that voice!”
