“Falling Over” mp3

“Falling Over” is a near-dead ringer for the Zombies’s “Tell Her No.”

Based in Edmonton, Alberta, but stylistically steeped in the so-called “Swingin’ ’60s” of London, the Whitsundays craft moddish pop that draws heavily from the Zombies, the Kinks, and any number of other acts of that ilk.

Bo Diddley Is A Gunslinger / 1960

Bo+Diddley+Is+A+Gunslinger

The album’s one of his best from the early Chess years, and features a rip-roaring batch of tracks that really cut it up in his classic scratchy guitar mode of the time! Lyrics are great – nearly all originals by Bo himself, with that hip swinging, and hard-wailing approach that was always a lot of fun
