BONNIE ST. CLAIRE - I SURRENDER


While I tend to not be that interested in most of the 60's music I've heard from continental Europe, but this song from Dutch singer (and later TV celebrity in the Netherlands) definitely won me over when my girlfriend introduced it to me a few years back (she performed it in her former band, The Deccas).

It proved EXTREMELY difficult to find, but I'm glad it has a new home. Interestingly enough, this particular version of the 45 credits the group as 'Unit Gloria". From all I've read, Unit Gloria was founded a few years later. This pressing, is in fact, a later edition where "I Surrender" was used as the b-side of one of the most atrocious glam-rock style songs I've ever heard! Couldn't make it through even two minutes of it.

from 1969...
