|Les Biches performed by Flora Purim |
: Jacques Brel recorded a song of the same title around the same time. Maybe it's a cover version of his original? Les Biches ('The Does',ie female deer) is also the title of a late 60s film by French director Claude Chabrol, though I don't think the Brel song is on the soundtack.
: Well, the record only lists the producer Tony Harris as the composer of the song, so I kind of doubt. There's also no apparent link between that title and the actual lyrics to the song.
|Whack Whack performed by Mariano & The Unbelievables |
: This does indeed sound fantastic. The harpsichord break in the middle of your clip sounds very like Hugo Montenegro's 'Lady in Cement' theme. I understand they had other albums; have you heard them? Are there any vocals? Thanks!
: Yes. They did another for Capitol the same year called "The 13th Hour". Haven't gotten around to picking it up yet, but from what I can gather it's the same affair, no vocals I'm afraid... Hugo's stuff is great for funky harpsichord cuts, I love that soundtrack!!
: Sorry delicado, it's "The 25th Hour". I had it mixed up with another album, and another increment of time it seems...
|Desiree performed by The Left Banke |
: is this a cover of the old doo wop standard ? which Zappa was involved in
: No, it's a Left Banke original.
: Haven't heard that for years! Nice to be reminded of it. My fave by them is 'Pretty Ballerina'.
As far as I know, they never had a hit here in England.
|Shadows breaking over my head performed by The Left Banke |
: I have to agree that this one is fantastic; thanks for recommending it!
