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…)
