hammond groover number one, brian auger, teams up with julie driscoll for a song that doesn't sound like anything else. the choir by driscoll is quite strange and repititous (straight from the bengal???), vocals by auger just blows me away.
from the single tiger (columbia db 8163) available on CD - the mod years 1965-1969 (disconforme)
i don't understand a single word of his, but that does not matter in this case. dutronc recorded several garage-pop songs in the 60s. he worked at the legendary label disques vogue. i found this song on the flip of 'il est cing heures, paris reveille' which is rather dull but the b-side delivers! check jacques out!
from il est... (vogue) available on CD - some collection perhaps

29 Jan 04 ·delicado: Dionne gets my vote! 28 Feb 04 ·FlyingDutchman1971: Dionne's rendition of this song is indeed excellent, however my vote would have to go to Dusty Springfield's recording. Dusty sings this song with more desperation in her voice. 24 Dec 04 ·BlueEyedYe-Ye: It's very difficult for me to choose between the two - the White Stripes version is pure horror though. Not in a good way...
