A new record of the week and Alabama aping the British Invasion and successfully!

Here is a great double sided piece of Muscle Shoals wax from Alabama. The Villagers here do a superb cover of "Laugh It Off" by The Tams. The Tams being the legendary Carolina Beach Music group. On the flip side the Villagers turn in a nice Beatles cover of "You're Gonna Lose That Girl" which is also equally amazing. Both on the legendary Fame Label. From 1965 when Fame Records switched from Vee-Jay distribution to Atco Record Sales. The lost Manfred Mann tunes you never heard. Unsung, underrated British Invasion bluesy classic we love. Paid $2 for this at last year's Chattanooga Record Show. Unheard at that. Took a punt on this one due to being on Fame. Sure glad I bought this one.
