RARITY # 41


MICKEY BAKER – ZANZIE

45 rpm (EP) Versailles, 90 S 370, France, 1963

Let’s start the month of March with some fun music, a French EP by US Rhythm & Blues guitarist (and long time French resident) Mickey “Guitar” Baker.   
It‘s my late tribute to Mickey Baker who left us in November 2012.

I do not have any discography details on the session, done in France with studio musicians See the post on Tony Milton - Rarity # 38 -  to have an idea of musicians who took  part in these sessions.  It was probably recorded around the same time.


Great sixties popcorn / Madison instrumentals.  Very enjoyable if you like that kind of stuff.  I do!

Back sleeve notes by Kurt Mohr.


The rip is mine, the cover pictures are from the web (better than those I took).

Tracks
A1       Zanzie
A2       Baker’s Other Dozen
B1       Baby Let’s Dance
B2       Oh Yeah Ah Ah Ah

Trivia – meeting with remarkable men
Mickey Baker is the only bluesman I ever met on a tramway in Brussels.

    1. Thanks Rick, I have amended the date in the title. Same year as the Tony Milton session, probably more or less the sam crew as the sound is pretty similar.
      Cheers

      n.b.: I have another Baker French EP in the pipeline.

  3. Baby Let's Dance and Oh Yeah, Ah, Ah were released on King in USA, so these two were probably not recorded in France
