PETE COOKE & THE BABY DOLLS - (THIS IS YOUR LAST KISS) TAKE IT & GIT


This record is simply a MASSIVE r&b screamer and there's not a whole lot to say about it otherwise; Pete Cooke (real name Richard? As that's how he's listed as the writer of the song) was in a gospel group prior, as it seems to be the only hard info about him that I found (from a 1964 Billboard article) and had at least one other 45 release.

Judging by the fact that it is on one of the Bell records offshoot labels (and dig that lovely baby blue vinyl! not seen very often on records from the '60's), I am assuming this is a record cut in New York City. Also taking a wild guess at the year.

from c1964...

Check out his other 45 "I Won't Cry" over at Sir Shambling. Very much in the same gospel belter groove as this one. W.

1964 seems about right. His other 45 on Dimension 1037 came out in Oct. 1964.
