The Elegants !

Remember The Incredible Kings last month ?
Well, here’s The Elegants !
Both bands are basically the same line up,including
Jerry Miller on guitar with Rick Burton on bass (now with DaiBando)and Dean Tsrapralis on drums (until recently a member of Dai Bando also).
The Elegants/Incredible Kings jumbo combo wailed through a fiery reworking of 'Ooh Poo Pah Doo' (with frantic vocal by Willie Washington) plus Hank Ballard's 'Let's Go Let's Go Let's Go'.
The pairing was issued in a miniscule pressing under the Elegants name on the bands' own International Artists label.The platter sold out immediately at Elegants gigs,though an additional several hundred copies miraculously appeared in their mitts via a pressing plant error.

Yikes, can there ever be enough versions of "Ooh Poo Pah Doo"? This one just kills, absolutely fantastic. Thanks for posting it.

and I always thought it must be 'Oop Oop A Do!'.

In Australia in the 1960's a very popular (out of Sydney) mainstream group Billy Thorpe and The Aztecs had chart success with this song.
I ignored this completely because I already knew it from the songlist of a Melbourne ( always more musically hip than Sydney) blues band I followed.
