  1. Excellent album ! quand à moi j'adore ses versions de " Take Five " et de " Louie , Louie " ; album sorti aussi en Angleterre sur le label London Records SHU 8388 [ UK ] EN 1969 . Très bon postage comme d'hab. , dommage que ce blog ne comporte pas plus de coms. ; ce qu'il mériterait et cela au plus haut degrés . Groovement , Pierre 2
