SINGLE SERVINGS: THE FAB FESTIVALS TAKE ON TYRONE

Los Fabulosos Festivals: Can I Change My Mind?
From 7″ (Onda Nueva, 1970)

I first posted this song over four years ago; it was left off (I think) the Panama 3 comp by Soundway and the compiler, Beto, was kind enough to share a copy of the song with me. Four years later and I couldn’t help but throw down to buy one of the scarce copies to come available (not the least of which, a really clean one).

It’s no surprise that I’m a huge fan of this Tyrone Davis tune so it says a lot that this cover is probably my favorite cover of it. The way it opens is so monster; it floors me every time. Honestly, I’m amazed this wasn’t comped already – it’d definitely have a starring role on any covers mix I might work on in the future (hmmm…say…)

  • How glad I am to find such a lovely cover of a truly fantastic, classic song. Listening to the Tyrone Davis version I sense more of the yearning feeling that closely matches the lyrics. With this Fabulosos cut it almost invokes an OG spittin game to his ex like “ah baby come on!” with its easy going open air convertible breeziness- which I don’t mind either! Definitely some fine lowrider soul
