  1. Hello mon ami tu as raison de donner 1965 comme date ( mais en tant que réédition ) seulement il faut préciser que l'album original est sorti , lui en 1962 . Toujours un réel plaisir à venir sur ton blog , même si je ne poste plus de coms. ( je viens tous les jours ). Groovement , Pierre 2

  2. Oufti ! j'avais oublié aussi qu'il y a un douzième titre " Cross Firing " ( le B 6 ). Groovement , Pierre 2
