ANDRÉS PAJARES / MARTA BAIZÁN + MIGUEL RÍOS + LOS IMPALA: Drácula Ye-Yé / Caperucita Ye-Yé 7″
FINALLY, the highly sought-after and fun ‘Drácula Yeyé’ by Andrés Pajares is being officially reissued on a 7” vinyl single for the first time. The version recorded by the Spanish band Doctor Explosión in the 90s helped to popularize this song that has already achieved the status of garage-yeyé holy grail.
On the B side the stunning garage-beat number ‘Caperucita Yeyé’ brings together some of the best artists of the Spanish-sung yeyé scene of the 60s: singers Marta Baizán, Miguel Ríos and the Venezuelan garage band Los Impala.
Two highly sought-after garage-yeyé songs on a double-A-side single, essential for lovers of 60s sounds.
Mainly known for his career as an actor, especially during the post-dictatorship years and through his “soft-erotic” comedy films, the popular Spanish comedian Andrés Pajares also recorded several records since the mid-1960s. Among them, “Dracula Yeyé” is THE song that has conquered selected dancefloors worldwide and has been on the wants lists of 60s sounds collectors and DJs for years. A rare artifact that was originally released in 1968 and whose original copies are very scarce and currently fetch exorbitant prices in the second-hand market. The later version recorded by the Spanish band Doctor Explosión in the ‘90s helped to make this record better known so that has already achieved the status of Spanish garage-yeyé holy grail.
The single is completed with another fun and surprising yeyé song on the B side that could well be the main track of this release since it brings together some of the best artists of the Spanish-sung yeyé scene of the 60s: singers Marta Baizán, Miguel Ríos and the Venezuelan garage band Los Impala. All of them were the uncredited artists involved in this recording that was originally released as a children’s record, with the musicalized narration of the classic tale “Little Red Riding Hood” that these musicians turned into a stunning garage-beat hit.
Both songs are reissued here on a 7” single for the first time.
