20 May 07 ·mhalb: Wow. I had otherwise never heard of this couple except my parents had/have the "I still believe in Tomorrow" LP. I think it's great. I like this song, but like "It's getting better" even more
Fast and furious, with incendiary guitars, this one is a radically different version of the P F Sloan track covered by the Grass Roots (q.v.), and it's half of my favourite pair of song-that-was-covered-by-two-artists-differently. They didn't have much else, although "Transparent Day" is pretty good, but the third LP is just bad country-flavoured pop to my ears.
from West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band Vol. 1 (Reprise), available on CD (Sundazed)
Best known for "Where Do You Go To My Lovely", which is a sad French or Italian-sounding song, the followup "Frozen Orange Juice" is a delightfully happy Spanish-sounding song, i.e. the exact opposite (lyrics of both songs reference the European nations listed above). It lopes along in 6/8 time with orchestral flourishes galore, particularly on strings, although horns, woodwinds and harp are also evident. Brilliant!
