The video features Hully Guitars (sidebar). It was also released on vinyl in 1963 as Hully Bach, with a classical music introduction in the style of Bach. Written by famous American guitarist and singer Mickey Baker who lived in Paris since 1960. A really hot number!
The US and UK influence is strong. This group has a following in Singapore too, especially amongst the 60s band groups. Good sound, fantastic selection, French connection. Do you have any of the EPs?
