JAY-JAYS – Come Back If You Dare

The JAY-JAYS – \’Come Back If You Dare\’ / \’Don\’t Sell The Sun\’ (Philips JF 333 550) 1966

Hard to find 45 by Dutch band The Jay Jays, especially with this well designed 60s mod cover sleeve. The record thankfully lives up to the quality of the cover and is a two sided beat delight.
\’Come Back If You Dare\’ is a Kinks style beat rocker. I\’m sure Ray Davies would have been proud to call this cut his own. What a killer mover and pure \’66. I love the line:

\’You left my baby swimming in her tears.\’

The flip \’Don\’t Sell The Sun\’ is a well produced and played acoustic ballad, once again with the right kinda cool moves that the Expo digs. This song reminds me of \’Now The Sun Has Gone\’ by The Beatmen. Both cuts on this Philips release are exceptional.
