Song of the day

The Left Banke - Walk Away Renèe
from the album Walk Away Renèe/Pretty Ballerina (Smash, 1967)


A perfect popsong to end the weekend. I got this album from the Left Banke a couple of months ago after getting a tip from a friend that I probably would like it. Well, I love it. It's one of the very best "baroque-pop"-albums I've ever heard. In my ears this ranks higher than Odessey & Oracle by the Zombies and Sgt. Pepper by the Beatles. Every tune on the album is a little gem. "Walk Away Renèe" is just the icing on the cake.

Highly recomended.



Listen below, sorry about the poor soundquality.
