The Left Banke - Walk Away Renee w Pretty Ballerina LP 65 w The History Of.. LP 85
A good transitional post to get us back on the continued theme of bands with "The" in front of them since this bands first two songs were hits and were about a band member's girlfriend who visited them in the practice studio...these songs were "Walk Away Renee" and "Pretty Ballerina". Great inspiration for a band considered the "American Beatles" at the time with a unique concept of baroque harpsichord and strings backing music with haunting vocals. Worth it just for the Rhino Records discography included...remember the "Naughty Sweeties" post I did a while back?
