BOBBY GARRETT - MY LITTLE GIRL


Bobby Garrett was actually Bobby Relf who was the second "Bob" in the duo of Bob & Earl (his voice is the high one on their immortal "Harlem Shuffle"). Bobby cut two records for the excellent Mirwood label out of Los Angeles under this pseudonym.

As for this particular track, it's another great example of the "Motown West" feel and sound that is heard on so many Mirwood 45's. Full of excitement, from the swirly strings, the cool vocals and tambourine hits that coincide with my heart beat when I hear tracks like this.

from 1966...

I've heard this before, but minus all the vocals. Is the flip side an instrumental?
