Superlungs My Supergirl  performed by Donovan  1968
Composed by Leitch

"She's only 14 but she knows how to draw!" I can't help but think this song isn't about what it sounds like. A great psychy dancer from Donovan's 'rockier' period.

from Barabajagal, available on CD (Epic)


Said Move  performed by The Aztex  1966

An absolutely brilliant fuzzy, snarly, angst-ridden, stomping teen garage cut from this legendary Texas band. Sounds almost like it was recorded in somebody's bathroom. Beautiful stuff.


available on CD - Back from the Grave, Volume 2 (AIP)



Yesterday  performed by Dick Hyman  1966
Composed by Lennon/McCartney

I couldn't possibly say that this is the best version of the old MacLen chestnut (there are simply too many of them out there for me to ever hear them all), but it probably qualifies as one of the most original. Hyman's virtuoso keyboard skills were already quite reknowned, but on this album he tackled an entirely different animal...the harpsichord. On this track, he starts out using the harpsichord in a very conventional fashion, performing a baroque solo. About two-thirds of the way into the song, however, comes a drastic slowing of the tempo, the bass & drums come in and it mutates into a jazz trio arrangement! He even plays solos on the 'chord that make it sound like a Hammond organ...absolutely amazing!! Much of this album is rather difficult to listen to, but when it's good, it's sublime.

from Happening! (Command)


96 Tears  performed by Big Maybelle  1967
Composed by Martinez

Searing r&b cover of the ? & the Mysterians classic. Maybelle almost sounds like she singing this about somebody else, and like she's amused by the pain she's caused. I know it's been comped a number of times, but I'm not sure of where.

from the single 96 Tears (Rojac 112)




  30 Jun 03 ·shaka_klaus: nice one.
Captain of Your Ship  performed by Reparata & the Delrons  1968
Composed by Kenny Young/Ben Yardley

Mind-blowing late-60s girl-group sound with very odd lyrics...words really can't describe it. Suffice to say, it's a strange song. This group started out as a very typical girl group of the early 60s mold, but kept plugging away long after those groups had gone out of style. This cut from '68 is very psych-y and "groovy", as was the fashion at the time. They eventually transformed into Barry Manilow's backup singers, but please don't hold that against them.

from Best From Bell (Bell UK BLLP-111)
available on CD - Magical Musical History Tour (Mo-Banana)




  22 Apr 04 ·jeanette: I agree - absolutely fantastic. Even its use in the Muller yoghurt commercial couldn't harm its basic genius. The fact that it's sampled by Betty Boo in Doin' The Do is another plus point!
  05 Apr 05 ·shakeahand: I first heard this song on the Muller ad! - which led me to hunt out the original. Great pop!
