Subject: RE: Land Of 1000 Dances
Hi John. I had never heard that intro before on the Cannibal's version until you produced it here!|
Their cover (but without that slow intro), did actually make the Top 30 in 1965.
It was a re-make of Chris Kenner's original which had barely reached the Hot 100 in 1963, but the original did include that slow intro.
So obviously, whoever produced the Cannibal & The Headhunters version decided to chop off that intro afther they had recorded it - and probably wisely so!
But I must say, although I am a fan of Chris Kenner, I still prefer the Cannibal's version.
Without that daft intro of course!
Where do you get this stuff from? I never realised that this version with a slow intro, existed.
