9662 THE PARTING GIFTS -(WALKIN' THROUGH THE) SLEEPY CITY / THE GREAT GAYLORD - ROLLING STONES RICE KRISPIES JINGLE (9662)
(45-9662) Top METAMORPHOSIS gem gets a dreamy stroll treatment by new all star combo featuring members of Reigning Sound, the Greenhornes and the Ettes! Flip it and dig as Double G makes good on his long threatened promise to overhaul the Stones' legendary 1964 TV commercial, ably backed by the mysterious Condo Fucks! Snap! Crackle! SQUAT!!
Two great sides that sound great together!

Searching for Yo La Tengo 7"s is what initially brought me to this vinyl gem, and when I saw the Parting Gifts were sharing the other side I knew it was a must. . Hunt down the Parting Gifts album - you will love it. But it is The Great Gaylord's vocals that puts a smile on my face and requires repeat listens. BUT I WARN YOU - this is the first record I bought in the Rolling Stones cover collection, and after listening to it I realize it's one of those "Collect Them All" moments. So here is what I suggest. If you are buying this record (and I hope you are!) just go ahead and save yourself the trouble of having to place another order and buy em' all. I am saving up now to do just that!
