Jackie and the Wild Boys
Friday, 25 June 2010
In one of his recent bags of goodies Dirk Koorn surprised me with some Dutch advetisement records. I had all of them, but some where in a better condition than the ones that i have, so this gift made my day.
As always i played all the records, and, as always, i realised once again how interesting this genre is! The onesided paper flexi record, that came with an issue of Tina magazine, has a song on it that is supposedly played by the band “Jackie & the Wild Boys”.
This band did not exist, but there was a comic in Tina& about this band, so they had a bunch of studio musicians playing as if *Jackie and the Wild Boys were a real band. A very nice idea, and the song is more than okay to my ears. The band sounds very much like Shocking Blue, but i never heard that they were behind this recording, so i guess it is only an imitation:
