1965 cover of Dale Hawkins‘ “La-Do-Dada” via the Hays, Kansas garage outfit The Blue Things. Sped up, the band plays it relatively straight (tempo aside) sounding more British invasion than middle America.

  1. Love The Blue Things! Grey Life by BT member Val Stoecklein is a pretty great LP of 12 string downer folk if you can find it…
