The Gorillas - She's My Gal

When I was sorting through all my vinyls. I found this one. My instinct was to put it back in the box (check those sideburns out), and then I thought lets play it and see what it's like.

Boy am I glad I played this, I love it, to think I have had this for 30 years and its sat in the loft unplayed.

Its one of those songs that just sticks on your mind and you keep singing it. I liked it so much I went out and bought Jessie Hectors (lead singers) album, see link below (the sideburns are even bigger).

Band: The Gorillas
Label: Chsiwick
Year: 1977
1. She's My Gal
2. Why Wait Til Tomorrow

So ripped from glorious vinyl

It's a bit too rock for me in places, but still there are some other excellent tracks on this. So if you like "She's My Gal" then buy this:
Gorilla Garage: the Jesse Hector Story

I fell in love with these guys sound about twenty years ago............

Unless they've been stolen I should have three 45's of them including the "Hammersmith Gorillas" one at our house out in the country.

Hi Elvis, thanks for the comment, if you have lost them the cd's are a good buy.
