Here's your Christmas present folks !
Just a warning: this DOPE is very, very addictive !
I first have to say that the band is British but this single was released on many labels, especially on Splendid (from La-Chaux-de-Fonds). It features Paul Thomas (vocals) who played in the band Peppermint Circus (from Coventry, UK). Producers are Ben Findon and Peter Shelley.
|Swiss release on Splendid label|
The song was originally released in 1971, on "D'Art" label. Other copies were made on different labels, probably for all DJs of the world... Let's say it, between all different covers, the swiss one looks definitely the best ! It shows how the song "Let It Ride" literally kicks ass ! You have now access to the definitive raw psych nugget which will keep playing in your mind for many days. Merry Christmas and "Let It Ride" !
