Well for those that might have scratched their noggins, just a little bit.
Both the songs were written by Chip Taylor.
Who.T.F., I can hear you say ?
(real name James Wesley Voight)
is also the brother of actorJon
and therefore uncle to Angelina
(Voight & Jolie that is).
I picked up Chipís album as a teen when I used to catch a train into the city each Saturday morning just to browse the new US Import albums that had arrived at Batman Records in Melbourne.
Those imports always had such solid thick cardboard covers, where the Aussie ones were just so flimsy (itís funny what you remember from certain times).
Anyway, just a little history as I remember it, nothing too special.
But I grabbed this album because John Platania
(Van Morrisonís Caledonia Soul Band guitarist)
was playing electric guitar on it
(tho this was the only song, country flavour I guess, that really grabbed me in the end as it turned out lol).
