Originals: Translucent Carriages by Pearls Before Swine (covered by Damon and Naomi)
Translucent Carriages was recorded for Pearls Before Swine’s second album Balaklava in 1968.
Damon & Naomi’s cover version was first released on the Magic Eye Singles Pearls Before Swine tribute album “For The Dead in Space” in 1997 and subseuqntly turned up on the following years Playback Simgers.
Originals: Time by Nancy Sinatra (covered by Cagney & Lacee)
I’m taking a guess that Dean Wareham most likely came to Time by Nancy Sinatra’s version… I know I did. All my (admittedly rather slack) research has revealed that Time songwriter Michael Merchant wrote Time. And that’s about it. A few folk recorded in 1966, including…
Time – Nancy Sinatra (1966)
Time – Cher (1966)
Dean Wareham, Britta Phillips and Anthony LaMarca treat us to a special and strange afternoon. A Galaxie 500 classic out of the archive performed live in Brooklyn directed by Debra Scherer for The Little Squares.
Happy birthday Justin Harwood
