Post 101 - Billy Thorpe & The Aztecs – On Stage EP

This is  an EP that we’ve been searching for what seems like 100 years.  Thanks to Brett‘s post on Midoztouch we were finally able to track it down.  On Stage (GEPO 70022) was recorded in 1965 with the Mk I Aztecs.  It contains an interesting original version of “Jenny Jenny”, which was re-worked and released on the Don’t You Dig This Kind Of Beat LP with the Mk II Aztecs.  Other tracks included on the EP are “What’d I Say” and The Coasters cover “I’m A Hog For You Baby”.  And finally, the infamous “Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah” track.  We have only ever heard of this track, but have finally had the opportunity to hear it for ourselves.  As die-hard Thorpie fans, we hope that you enjoy listening to this EP as much as we have enjoyed having the opportunity to share it with you all.  Enjoy!
