The Muffs

Super rad Sub Pop single on splatter aqua with a bitchin' Bomp classic b-side cover of a smash by The Zeros.

Aretha Franlin

b side: "Do Right Woman - Do Right Man"

Simmering hot stuff. Careful, don't scald yourself!

Roy Head & the Traits
a side: "I Pass the Day"
b side: "Apple of My Eye"
Back Beat 555 1965
Whoops... got the a-side/b-side swapped around. Which now seems obvious.

a side: "I Wanna Be Your Lover"
b side: "My Love Is Forever"
Warner Bros. Records WBS 49050 1979
The best Prince single, or The. Best. Prince. Single. ?

The Dwarves

Uh, well the 45 is a cool translucent purple.

Bonus A-Side:
The Dave Clark Five

A nice little Chris Kenner/Allen Toussaint cover.

The Strangeloves
a side: "I Want Candy"
b side: "It's About My Baby"
Bang Records B-501 1965
The classic. Sure I love Bow Wow Wow's version too. Also, if you haven't seen Bang! The Bert Berns Story, I highly recommend it if you're into that sort of thing.

Belle and Sebastian
a side: "I'm a Cuckoo"
b side: "(I Believe in) Travellin' Light"
Rough Trade Records RTRADS157 2004
No that is how you lift a riff. So catchy too. And the video almost makes me want to take up jogging again.

The Spencer Davis Group
a side: "I'm a Man"
b side: "Can't Get Enough of It"
United Artists Records UA 50144 1967
Ah yeah, hit me with that Hammond. Also a rad b-side.
