SONG OF THE DAY The Original Starfires – Camel Walk


When it all gets too much and the troubles of the day mount up and smother you silly, what do you need? I’ll tell you what you need…a nice sleazy instrumental track that will make you wanna strut your worries into oblivion….and it just so happens I’ve got just the thing!!

Released via ABC-Paramount’s subsidiary label, Apt Records, Camel Walk was performed by The Original Starfires and appeared as the b-side to their 1959 hit, Fender Bender.  

It’s a smashing song with its wailing sax that roars out over a sultry bass line and wouldn’t feel at all out place in a Tarantino movie (and it would seem that I’m not the only one to think this going by the comments left on this Youtube feed).  Check it out above.
