The Nilsmen: Le Winston b/w The Sand Step (RJR 196?)
There’s actually two covers to this 45, one that has “The Sand Step” on the front and feat. a woman sitting on the beach, but I’m going with Bardot puffing on a cancer stick. “Le Winston” is a little too high energy for my tastes though it’s not bad per se. The real gem is the flip – “The Sand Step” is one smokin’, groovin’ mod organ banger. It sizzles on this infectious bassline and organ vamp that runs throughout and the drums break down three times to boot. At the beginning and end, a sexy, breathy female voice says, “sand step” and I don’t know if it’s a dance or what but I’m down for it.
