BILLY JOE ROYAL – \’Hush\’ / Watching From The Bandstand\’ (CBS 3044) 1967
Excelent cover of Joe South\’s \’Hush\’. Infact the latter produced this effort.
Billy Joe Royal hailed from Georgia in USA and had a few earlier hits, none of which I\’ve ever heard. It appears that he also had some success and recognition in Europe, especially with the mod scenesters and Northern Soul crowd.
I only bought this 45 cos I dig the desert boots Billy is wearing in this picture!
The flip \’Watching From The Bandstand\’, again co written and produced by Joe South, is an uninteresting pop song with a soul vibe.
The 45 shown is the Dutch release.
