a classic pop look at euphoric love
I saw the Drifters a coupla years ago, whoever was with them then, with the Drifters at least there was always a lot of singers coming and going ( around 60 by my reckoning) but they didn’t go within a million miles of their 70s hits. Still, more than a number in your little black book,go on Amazon to check em out, the 70s Drifters isn’t on Itunes or Spotify.
Tokyo Storm Warning – Elvis Costello And The Attractions – An astounding achievement, the words pull on and out and on and on till he has a dream of that revolver in her pure and but what dow e care of the world is just a joke? Now they’re hanging protest singers – A+
All of the caveats you can imagine, doesn’t change that that is Lala singing “Da Do Ron Ron”, Charlie singing “Sweets For My Sweet” and yes, the real, the indominatable Ben E. singing “Spanish Harlem”. These are immortal pop tracks.
