It's February 18th, 2013 And You're in a Rad Garage Band - GFY - The Moonrakers

Posted by on Mon, Feb 18, 2013 at 4:53 PM

It took Them , and prolly a handful of amphetimines, to smash AND block this trad blues song, Big Joe Williams's "Baby Please Don't Go," into a '60s beat/garage anthem. A lotta bands covered the song using Them's arrangement—Them's version is canon—but this version by the Moonrakers does it sweet, sweet justice.

The Moonrakers were a long running Denver, Colorado group and released SEVEN 45s, and even an LP!!
