Rien Qu'un Seul Mot - Eddy Mitchell
Eddy Mitchell delivers a thundering version of the Rolling Stone's "Satisfaction" on his 1966 EP for Barclay Records. In his native France Eddy was considered somewhat of straitlaced square, but that reputation didn't prevent him from cranking out one of the best Stone's covers, ever. "Rien Qu'un Seul Mot" checks positive on all my satisfaction boxes - pounding drums, crackling guitar fuzz, no holds barred vocals, and a little tambourine jingle jangle thrown in for good measure.
Pre solo career. Here's Eddy Mitchell, his hair & The Black Socks singing Gene Vincent's timeless"Be Bop A Lula".
