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!

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