The Villagers - Laugh It Off / You're Gonna Lose That Girl
This is a great 2-side garage 45 I found in my record store here in Nebraska. I really like Rick Hall's records, and really expected this to be some great Southern Soul. Quite surprised when I got it on the turntable! There has been quite a bit written about this 45. The group included Cliff Ellis, who coached basketball at Auburn, Clemson, South Alabama & Coastal Carolina. Great cover of The Tams classic and the flip is an equally good cover of Lennon & McCartney's classic! This 45 is a little slice of garage heaven, and all this for a buck plus a little digging in an attic! Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
