Really, with a cover like the one above and a band called Dorothy and the Vampires, did you really expect me not to click? This ditty from Singapore might seem a bit tepid, but when will you ever run into it again? Found at Radiodiffusion International, a site that features vintage oddballs from Africa, the Middle East and Asia. If that doesn't wet your whistle, you must not be into the exotic bag.
You've heard "Miserlou," "Telstar," and "Walk, Don't Run" to the point of exhaustion, right? Here's a couple instrumentals you won't recognize, by the Silhouettes, lifted from the first stereo record released in East Pakistan (now Bangladesh). Dig it, "Bhavayia" features solos in guitar, organ and sitar.
