Send Me A Postcard -- Shocking Blue

Mariska Veres died last December. Their biggest hit in the USA must have been "Venus." "A Godness on a mountaintop -- and Venus was her name!" This one sounds more like Grace Slick and Jefferson Airplane. Mariska Veres, RIP.

Well that's fucking brilliant. Hadn't heard them before, but obviously knew 'Venus'. The sort of sound and woman I wanted to make out with when a teen.

And still would now I guess! No beauty but somewhat earthy...

God this is great. And the snare sound is fantastic (as is the guitar sound behind the chorus). How did they make such a fantastic sounding record in 1968?

Oh, and I would have wanted to make out with the bass player, but I'm gay!
