The Return of The Primitives
In 2012 The Primitives returned with Echoes and Rhymes their first full length album in 21 years
This album features 14 recordings of lesser known female fronted songs and follows on from their 4 track Never Keep a Secret from 2011 which covered Breakaway by Toni Basil and Need All the Help I Can Get a Lee Hazlewood song recorded by Suzi Jane Hokom.
All 14 songs are pretty good but the pick of the bunch for me is track 2 Turn Off the Moon a b-side to a single called Lolita Ya Ya from the soundtrack of Stanley Kubrick's Lolita originally recorded by 14 year old Sue Lyon.
This is followed by The Witch a track from Paradise of Sounds an LP by Germany's Adam and Eve.
Terrific stuff - pop music at it's best
