Seems at this time of year (in fact, to the day) I feel the urge to dig out the Nuggets comps.
I don't do this consciously.
There's just a Spring in the air and West Coast garage pop on the turntable connection.
'Girl I've Got News For You' easily sounds like it could have been a Top Ten smash by the Grassroots (and was in fact produced by Grassroots producer Steve Barri), but the performance is by Cherokee, aka The Robbs. The Robbs are best known for their 1966 regional hit 'Race With The Wind' and for being regulars on the 'Where The Action Is' TV show. As the 60s spilled into the 70s the group's name was changed to Cherokee. These days the Robb Brothers can be found operating Cherokee Studios, one of Hollywood's top recording complexes.
(from the original 1985 sleeve notes)
I love this!
