If you've been around here for any length of time, you probably know that I have a particular fondness for oddballs. When those oddballs happen to be a band I'm not familiar with, from another country, doing a cover of a familiar song but in unique over the top earnest fashion, shit, just get outta my way. That's the case with the True's cover of "In the Midnight Hour", a version that sounds like Tom Waits in a late sixties Spanish psych-soul band with Davie Allan coming in for the solo. If you get any of that, you get why I'm all over this one, fidelity be damned. Actually, the fidelity isn't that bad, it's similar to other international records of the time. Hell, why am I even mentioning fidelity? This is the type of record that renders technical jive meaningless.
