It's got a good beat and you can dance to it. Sometimes liking a record can be that simple. This is quintessential UK freakbeat from 1964, half way between mod and psych-rock.
Evidently Mike Rabin is now a published author of suspense novels. So that happened.
I found this a few years ago at my favorite record store in the PNW garage rock Mecca of Tacoma. It looks like I got a really good deal on it. I've said it before and I'll say it again - I love you Tacoma!
Happy 66th Birthday to Scottish soul-rocker Lulu. I kind of like to think of her as the UK's mod answer to Brenda Lee. At age 15, she really packed a vocal punch! The Record of the Day is Lulu and the Luvvers' 1964 b-side to her hit cover version of "Shout".
Usually the term "shred" is used to describe guitar playing, but I'm telling you little Lulu's vocal SHREDS on this as she tears apart her male vocal partner and asserts her independence. Enjoy!

I'm excited to highlight some of my favorite records in a variety of genres (soul, R&B, classic country, rockabilly, oldies, garage rock, etc). These won't all necessarily be "dance" records per se. They will all be records that I believe deserve a special listen. I simply love good music, rare or not. Hopefully you will spend some time here and love music right along with me! Lets give this a shot!
